Uable to install driver without screens going black

Upon installation and re-boot, screens go black, and have to shut-off and start again in safe-mode, do a backup restore so i can function again. Tech support was hopeless. using this video card along with original Geforce MX440 so I can use a third screen. Have the 6200 connection using Dvi/VGa adapter on third screen. The other two connected my original card. There was some suggestion about power supply not being adequate (180w) by tech support, it is borderline but should work. Also, instructions given on Nvidia site say to disable downloader accelerator and virus protection running in background (which tech support failed to mention). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would first off agree with the power supply.. I don't think it is enough to power both cards. I would recommend upgrading. Also, is one AGP and the other PCI? Also, it is possible that your motherboard is incapable of using 2 cards..

When you install the driver, are you trying to install just the driver (ie select from location) or the whole package? It's possible that it is trying to install over the existing driver for the old card, and have an issue...

What can i do when it wont go any further than "press any key to boot from cd"

Sounds as if you may have removed the hard drive from the boot order, go into the BIOS of your computer (usually pressing f2 or del while booting will get you there depending on the model) and then find reset BIOS as you may have done some changes. This should sort it out. If it doesnt one of the drivers you installed may have corrupted the windows installation and you will need to find out what buttons to press on startup to launch the system recovery. Again this depends on the model of your PC.

When i start my gateway netbook lt20 a black screen pops up asking to start windows normally or 3 other options.. why?does this happen?

Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.

I am uable to listen any type of sound from speaker and in device manager it is not showing option of enable disable it is showing only hardware scan and properties

Shut the computer down and remove the sound card, restart the computer without a sound card installed then shut it down again. Re-install the sound card and make sure the monitor is connected before you restart. The computer should have seen the card and loaded the correct driver. If you are still having problems shut down and restart in safe mode and troubleshoot.

Won't boot getting blue screen

hello, to start of blue screen can be result of several different things, ie incompatible drivers, corrupted os etc..
without going into detail of what might have caused it here is what you can try:
if you have windows CD try booting of the cd, (start computer with the CD in the drive) and follow the steps until you get to the screen where it says windows installation found and at the bottom of the screen you see an option to "Repair" it will look like its installing windows all over and it may ask for the CD key again.
CD key is usually located behind or side of the PC.

you can also try full recovery if your system came with recovery CDs2_bing.gif. keep in mind restore/recovery can be destructive(will delete all you existing data) depending upon which option you use.

use caution when selecting option.

please feel free to ask any questions if you are not sure, (better to be safe than sorry :-))

hope this help.
kind regards,

Computer wont start up fully

Your boot menu for Windows is corrupt. Try to boot from the windows installation disc and make sure to key any key when told to boot off the disc. Once the windows files load, you will have a choice of what to do next. If you have XP, choose the repair option and you will be faced with a black DOS screen...after the blinking cursor type

FIXBOOT hit enter
Try to boot the computer without the disc in it. If it does not boot, then boot off disc again and this time type:

FIXMBR hit yes and enter

Try once again to boot without the disc.

Also try to boot into safe mode by tapping F8 when you see the Compaq name come up during starting. If you can get to the multiple boot up option screen, scroll to "Safe mode with networking" and choose that. If it boots then you can go to the start button > accessories > system tools > system restore > choose a restore point back a day or two and follow the prompts.

If you have Vista, boot off the disc and choose start up repair. If that doesn't work, boot again and choose restore computer to an earlier time. Again choose a restore point back a few days. Good luck ParrotHead PC Repair

Black screen with AGP video card update

you really didn't need a new psu for that videocard, but it can either be a burned videocard or the monitor can't support the refresh rate the videocard is outputting.  although, the card really should default to its lowest setting upon installing in a new system, try connecting another monitor.  if you get a screen, thats good, if not, try booting into safe mode holding f8 right before the windows loading screen appears.

I have an Extensa 5620...I was installing Blackberry Phone software on the laptop...upon completing the install, I needed to restart...While the computer was beginning to shut down, I accidentally ejected...

Try rebooting it with the cd you ejected back in, to see if the installation finishes. If this does not work, take the disk back out and try booting with the option Last Good Configuration.
