Video cards pci-e

I was trying to connect a 2 pci-e videocards (pny 8800 gts and nvidia 7300) with the 7300 in the primary slot so that things run cooler but when i can never get them to both run together, it is one or the other. then when i finally get them both on i get the blue screen of death. i can still boot into safe mode and it will tell me that they are both working (only one is working when it tells me this) am i needing to change something in the bios
(i'm running windows)

    i have a 600W power supply attached, and i did what you said and everything worked great... then after the computer was on about 10 min... the 8800 gts would quit... so i wondered if it was a heat problem or something else... the heat reads out at 175 F when it quits... is this the problem and if so... what do you use to cool a video card? i have one of the case fans pointed in right at the card slots and the other 4 fans pulling air out

  • s_beukelman7 Apr 16, 2008

    thanks that worked great... right after that i started getting a nv4_disp loop error, which apparently is pretty common with older nvidia video cards... anyway this one was a bugger to fix but i found one

    for anyone who has that problem

Hi s _beukelman7, one of the most important spec's of running two SLI cards is they must be identical. Your trying to run a 8800 & a 7300. They are both NVIDIA **** they are not the same. They are different & will fail in your system. Pg. 6-2 in your mnual. Either buy another 8800 or another 7300 SLI card.
It is suggested you go to NVIDIA web site & allow NVIDIA to check both your two graphic cards & system for the latest drivers. If NVIDIA finds you need updated chipset drivers please (follow all instructions) or your will find yourself re-installing your OS.
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

The two most important item you need other than checking the above link, is the correct power supply. Your manual suggest a minimal of 500w psu when using a single SLI card. I suggest running a 550w for dual cards.
The second item concerns the SLI cable. It must be clean.

Good luck!
Mike

No color Red, Dell XPS 400, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE video card


Mike,

I would recommend for you to try different monitor, so that you can isolate the problem.

If same problem occur, try to plug in your video card into another PCI slot in your computer. Cleaning the gold fingers of the video card with a clean cotton cloth might help.

Use a blower to remove some dust on the PCI slot.

Or try inserting the video card in another computer. If you get the same problem on another computer, you need to replace the card.

Good luck!

I have vertical red lines generated by my Nvidia 8800 GTS graphics card


Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

Nvidia geforce 8800 gts code 43 due to vista home premium


Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter


so...
your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website? http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.

EA Game ''Spore'' - Videocard & Driver Issue


Well, I can solve it but it is somewhat bad news. Basically your video card is not powerful enough. Here are the ATI specs from the EA website;
  • ATI Radeon™ series
  • 9500, 9600, 9800
  • X300, X600, X700, X800, X850
  • X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950
  • 2400, 2600, 2900
  • 3450, 3650, 3850, 3870,
  • 4850

    and here are NVIDIA
  • NVIDIA GeForce series
  • FX 5900, FX 5950
  • 6200, 6500, 6600, 6800,
  • 7200, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950
  • 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800
  • 9600, 9800, GTX 260, GTX 280
    I would recommend buying a new video card. You can pick up a NVIDIA 8400 thru 8600 for about $30 or $40 from Frys.com or newegg.com sometimes cheaper with rebate.

    They are fairly easy to install.

    Good Luck.

    8800gt black screen


    Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change).
    It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports.
    Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card.
    Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.
