Hi there i seem to have a wee bit of a tricky one here. I have an geforce 6100sm-m mother board and an nvidia pcix 8600gt which will not show any display when my monitor is plugged in ive tried updating drivers for the mb and the graphic card, the problem all started when the machine was powered down manually while in the middle of freezing during an standard prog installation ive since then put new o/s on win vista ultimate 32b but the mother board only sees the on board graphics the 4100 onboard chip and sees the graphics card as a standard graphics adapter ive been all over the geforce site with no soloution to the problem has any one had the same issue as me or has any 1 got any ideas of how to solve this been at it for ages i think it may be the pcix port driver or arrrrr i dont know tried bios aswell for geforce
Hi crazieedd, the answer to you're problem is this. Go to ECS's web site. Click on this link for you're GeForce6100SM board.
Another user I tried to help did have the same problem as you. Though ECS does not mention there is a fix for this issue. ECS did email the user to update the bios file. (I looked at the last 2 bios updates & there is no mention of how to run the PCI-E & disabling the onboard video fix mentioned. According to ECS you are to upgrade the bios file to its most recent. That said, once the bios file has been flashed. (Preferred option is to use a floppy disk). You are to go into the bios to Advanced Chipset Features
Than to, Onboard GPU set this to read, [Enable If no Ext GPU]
Save & exit the bios.
Having this set to, Enable If No Ext GPU & using a PCI-E card plugged in to the system automatically disables the onboard video card. (Don't you just love it when the Mfg does not list this type of major fix)?
Please keep in mind the other user was not running Vista. No one has mentioned to you how bad Vista (any version) is! You may not have any troubles with Vista. Let's hope it stays that way.
Good Luck crazieedd!

the drivers might not be installed correctly you might have to uninstall the graphics card restart your computer then reinstall the graphics card and its drivers
If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
