Question about PNY GeForce 7600 GS, (512 MB) AGP Graphic Card

1 Answer

Installed new graphics card and Windows won't start

The error message says primary hard disk failure. Before the error message occurs the new card info (text) is displayed on the screen for a few seconds. I had a radeon 9700 Pro 128MD AGP go bad and replaced it with a PNY 7600 GS 512MB. Running XP on a Dell PC that is 6 years old. I also tried uninstalling the driver to the old graphics card. When I put the old card back in the AGP slot the computer starts up but the display is messed up. Please let me know if there is other things I can try.
Thanks,
DB

If your new video card has a power connector, make sure it is connected to a power plug. If you already did that, it's possible your PC's power supply doesn't have enough power to run all your connected equipment.

To get your old card running, hit F8 repeatedly during boot-up until you get the boot options. Select VGA mode. It should boot up properly then.

Once booted into VGA mode, set your screen resolution to something simple like 1024x768 or 800x600, then reboot.

If that doesn't work, try hitting F5 repeatedly during boot-up to boot into Safe mode. You can then adjust your settings again there.

Laptop won't start up


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Nvidia boot agent ?


I would state use the Restoration Disk, and perform a Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)
This will repair the Nvidia settings for YOUR computer.

But more than likely Acer did not provide a Restoration Disk, and it is my understanding it may be hard to get a hold of. (Acer Support)

This makes me think you have installed a new Nvidia graphics card, since specifications indicate it comes with Integrated Graphics that is Nvidia GeForce 7050.

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/acer-aspire-m1641-u1521a/4507-3118_7-33234219.html

{Integrated Graphics is also referred as OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD. The graphics chipset (GPU) is soldered to the motherboard, and Not to a removable graphics adapter card,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

IF SO, the software (Installation disk) is installed FIRST, then the graphics card is physically installed.

IF not you get a driver conflict.

When a device is installed on a computer, (Such as a graphics card), Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find matching suitable drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.
This won't do.

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

[Drivers are small pieces of software, that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device ]

Is this what you did? Install the graphics card, THEN use the graphics card's installation disk?

Post back in a Comment.

    This might be caused by a common conflict between your 7600 series videocard and your computers chipset. Try disabling "write combining".

    To do this, goto the display properties (on the Windows desktop right mouseclick and choose "properties"). Then choose the tab "Settings" and click the "Advanced" button. Now choose the tab "Troubleshooting" and uncheck the checkbox "Enable writecombining" and click the "OK" button afterwards.

    You might need to restart the computer afterwards before testing wether that solves your problem or not.

    If that doesn't fix it, try other/newer drivers. And when that doesn't help things, you might have overheated the card (and damaged the RAM chips on it). You might want to clean any dust from the card anyways.

    When the problem still occurs, please let us know, so we can continue troubleshooting ...

    Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.
