Question about Nvidia GeForce4 MX440SE 64MB SDR AGP with TV-Out Graphic Card

1 Answer

Screen goes blank after installing card

After I installed the GeForce MX440-SE video card on my E-machines T3306, I booted up the computer. The E-machines logo appears and then it is followed by a black screen. It just stays there. Windows does not load. What is the problem and how can I fix it?

I already uninstalled the old drivers of my built-in graphics so I cannot see anything when my monitor is plugged in there.

A few people have told me to go to the BIOS and disable the built-in graphics but I cannot find where.

Thanks!

You're video settings will be within Advanced Settings. You're manual does not show any bios menu's. I'm sure the heading Advanced will be listed at the top of one of you're menu's. You may not be able to disabe you're onboard display but you will be able to change display order & that is what you want to do. If you're system still just sits there. Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Remove the cmos/bios battery, (Use a flat tip screw driver to help you to pop it out). Wait about 15 seconds & pop it back in. Plug the power cord back in & power up you're system. Enter the bios & try again. Change the order of the video. Save & exit. Windows should load. Rather than installing you're current CD video software, go online & download the most current display software. Other software to install DirectX 9.0c found at microsoft.

Blacked out windows with geforce 5500pci


i would get another card and try it.

or, boot to safe mode with F8 which will load default drivers, so you can un-install any that might be left over from an older card

XP Service pack 3 will not boot with NVidia Geoforce 6600 drivers


There's a chance that your screen resolution is set higher than your monitor can handle. Try booting into safe mode and see if you can resolve the problem. You may also have to configure the BIOS to use the expansion slot that your using for the primary video, and turn the integrated (on-board) one off. (If you haven't already done so)

Blank screen


I just installed a geforce 6200 with heatsink, no fan, in my computer. Fry's is having a sale and for $20 after rebate, how could I go wrong? Upon first installation, the computer failed to boot.

THE FIX

Discovered modern computers will not even atempt to boot if the power supply is below the minimum requirement for the video card's recommended wattage. More proof that over-powered supplies are not an absolute necessity. I upgraded to 250w from the onboard 180w and it fired up. The rest was disabling the integrated video which i found out was compatible with geforce 5200 level of operations.

My system:
Dell Opti-plex GX260, cut to bare minimum since it was from a commercial business with 1G RAM after upgrade.

Problem with ASUS Geforce 6600, 256MB, AGP8x


Its most likely drivers. Completely uninstall all Geforce drivers and and software. Some video uninstall programs only remove the software and not the drivers. You'll need to go into device manager and uninstall the video drivers from there. Double check to make sure MX440 drivers are gone as well. When you restart and windows wants to install your new card, cancel it, then run the Geforce setup program. That way you won't get conflicts with a windows basic driver. Then make sure you have Directx 9c installed. Directx 10 isn't necessary because I don't believe the 6600 supports it anyway.
Good luck

Installing AGP video card


Don't boot with the monitor connected to the card. You need to let it boot into windows and install the drivers for it first. Once you do that,shutdown and restart with the monitor plugged into it and it should work.
