Question about PNY Verto GeForce 6800GT, (256 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card

1 Answer

PNY GeForce 8800 GT

I purchased a Gateway GT5082 from Best Buy around two years ago. After struggling with the graphics card (Ge6100) for quite a while when gaming, I finally decided a slight upgrade was necessary. This evening, I purchased a GeForce 8800 GT from Best Buy and attempted to follow the steps in the manual. However, the system is not recognizing any "new hardware" even though it is plugged into my PCI-express slot. I cannot get any signal to the monitor from the card whatsoever. I have been looking online for hours and have tried all sorts of "how to" FAQs. I selected the wrong product on the drop down box because mine is unavailable. It is PNY GeFroce 8800 GT. Any ideas?

    its a sizing problem, i just bought the same card and have the same computer. there is a line of capacitors that block the card from seating into the pcie slot correctly. ive been told that if im crazy enough i could dremel the fiberglass down on the card enough so that itll fit (voids the warranty+will probably destroy the card), or if im crazier try to relocate the capacitors (damn well near impossible on a multilayer board+just plain silly)

GEFORCE 8800 GTX HAS TWO SIX PIN POWER CONNECTORS. sHOULD I USE BOTH OF THEM OR ONE WOULD BE SUFFICIENT


Both must be used and the power source must be capable of delivering at least 700 watts. Real watts, from a good brand , not some noname cheap one.

Nvidia geforce 8800 gts code 43 due to vista home premium


Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.
