Question about Gateway GX7018E PC Desktop

1 Answer

Attempted to install NVidia 9800t on my Gateway GX7018E. Could not get Windows 7 to recognize the video card plugged into the pci-e slot. Is there a way to force recognition? I have changed the BIOS info to recognize PCIE, and changed my video driver to base vga thru device manager.

    Have you tried downloading the latest nvidia drivers? Or uninstall it and let Windows 7 detect by itself.

    I have the disk with the drivers. Windows 7 will not detect. When I plug my vga into the card, my screen goes blank.

Do you have another monitor or TV with dvi/hdmi? Try to see if that works. And it seems like you changed the graphics output while in Windows. Try turning it off, swapping the cable and turn on again.

Graphcis card wont work


You have received some wrong information.
This motherboard has a PCI-e x16 slot(ver1.0), two PCI-X 66MHz, and two PCI 33MHZ slots..
The video card must go in the PCI-e x16 slot.
The x8 lanes are hardwired from the Tumwater chipset to the BCM5721 LAN chip, and are not accessible for use.
There is no x8 lane slot on this motherboard.

I have the Mad Dog GeForce2 MX400 card on my Windows XP system. When I attempted to install Window 7, it would not recognize the card and installed a default VGA driver. Are there updated Windows 7...


Sorry to say, no. According to NVIDIA this is a legacy product (older model). The most current drivers offered by nvidia are for windows XP back in 2006. You can check for yourself here:

Your product type is "LEGACY"

Try a newer card and look it up at the manufacturers website. I love nvidia by the way ;)

Windows does not see the Nvidia G100 video card in the PCI-E slot. Does not even show up in device manager. Tried to install drivers, but the driver installer says that I don't have any compatible hardware...


Do you have another computer to try it out in? It might be that either the card isn't working, the PCI slot is not working, or the card isn't compatible with the motherboard.

Add on PCI-E video card doesn't work


I would check the BIOS To check the boot order preference to see if you can tell the motherboard to Force Starting up with the PCI-E Slot.

If the slot did go bad, most likely you would see the system crash instead of just automatically going back to using the onboard video card.

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter


so...
your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website? http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.

Gateway GX7018E / T6420 = swap video cards for a test?????


No you cant, the gateway GX7018E uses integrated graphics like the T6420. You will have to buy a cheap PCI or PCI-E graphics card to test it out.

8800gt black screen


Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change).
It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports.
Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card.
Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.
