Question about Computers & Internet
Ok heres my problem early today my brother went to go boot up his computer doing his normal eveyday tasks when the screen gose black.
after some trouble shooting thinking it was the monitor i brought it over to my tower stated it up just fine just to make sure i left it on for about 30 min just to make sure it wasent going to die after 10 min of use. seems that it all boiled down to the 512mb graphics card was burned out.. having a few spair cards on hand i first uninstalled the old drivers in safe mode(did this with the onboard graphics card) to reasure that i got all the drivers files.
when installing the other 256mb card into the machine and booting it up installing the new drivers (oddly the drivers for each card are one in the same) when i go into advanced options its showing the correct name of the card and series yet its still showing that it is a 512mb card... i would assume that running this card at a 512mb rate might mess up the card and or the computer is there a way for me to fix this ?
Cards series if needed:
Geforce 7600gs 512mb DDR PCI-E
Geforce 7300gs 256mb DDR2 PCI-E
I've lost my installation driver cd

Nvidia produces one (large) driver for all cards in a series.
Make sure that the onboard Video Adapter is Disabled first (done in Device Manager).
Then try Updating the Driver for the GeForce card in Device Manager (you don't have to Uninstall it first).
If it still comes up with 512 Mb, call me back.
If it works, rate this fix as FixYa so I know it worked.
