I use a Targa card for photo imaging. It's at work so I don't have the model in front of me but will get it later. All of a sidden copmputer says...Targa Driver Not Available. I took it out, cleaned it up put in a different slot, still nothing. It was working perfectly fine the day before.

Re: Targa Card.....Please Help!
If your PC tells you the driver is not found, the card itself is working but the problem is in the software.
Chances are that a microsoft update caused this problem, specially if you pc is set to automaticly update windows.
Try re-installing the targa drivers, this might help.
Otherwise try to find out if there is a driver-update available on the relevant website of Targa.

you might have overheated and corrupted your graphics card and its driver software make sure the graphics card is securely seated and check the lead that attach motherboard to hard drive these might have overheated and lost connectivity a computer needs to have current and data to travel up to and through every device for it to work properly even the cd/dvd must work in/out even the fan and its lead must work
hope this helps
Assuming that the slots are the same (otherwise there will be a diference at AGP version) you can change this VGA, but you will get lower quality image (especially on videos). I don't know details for these VGA cards (brand / model) so I can't give you more details.

A complete model number for your card would help. I have no idea how old or what kind of system you have, or version of Windows but, if you card number is R6670-MD1GD5, this card is for late model systems. From what I can tell it is 2.1 x 16 slot so, your system might not support that, and, it's a pretty serious card. I can't find a power rating but, I would not be suprised if it requires at least 350w. If you don't have the system to support this card, you will ahve to update or, get a different card.
depend on your OS as to how you go about this but basically click "start" the right click on "my computer" select properties. this will get you to system properties..slick the "hardware tab then the "device manager" button.
Find "display adapters" and right click on your current video card and select update driver. tell it no to search the internet then click on the "install from a list or specific location (advanced)" you the should come to a window where you can "browse" to and select the folder where your new driver is located. it will look for the .inf file and install the driver. This is a walk through using XP its gonna differ a bit on Vista but its basically the same thing.
I have a TARGA TRAVELLER 1574 X2 LAPTOP which is about 2-3 years old. I was using it last week, everything was fine. I put it away, but when i came to use the laptop later on, the screen was completely blank. The power button was lit up and everything else was ok, but no power was going into the monitor. Ive tried to see if it had gone into sleep mode, but to no avail. Ive even tried to reboot with a WINDOWS XP disk but nothing. Do you have a solution to my problem?
A. There are two types of cable; DVI "I" and DVI "D". Make sure you are using the correct one
B. Update your following drivers:
1.VGA card driver 27.00 or later version
2.WDM driver(capture driver) 1.11 or later version
3.Expertool program (overclocking program) 2.81 or later version
