Conflict between on board graphics and new graphic card

I'm trying to fit a 512Mb Nviadia 8500GT graphics card by Inno3D. Plugged in and XP detected it when I booted up but I had problems loading the drivers. Finally got that done but when I restarted the pc it just stopped half way through start up. Tried 3 times but the machine wouldn't have it so I took the new graphics card out. Machine now running fine again. After much searching of the www it would seem that I need to change a BIOS setting???

The BIOS is V3.07 and a quick look shows the Primary Graphics Adaptor as being set to PCI. Is this what I change and how?

System is a Compac Persario SR1705UK running Windows XP SP2.

    Went into BIOS and chaged PGA setting to read PCI-E. Installed graphics card and started pc. PC hung during start up on 3 successive attempts in different places. Also tried using device manager to disable on board graphics. Same result. Tried BIOS change and device manager... same result.

    I can only conclude that its something I'm doing or the new graphics card is NFG! If anyone has anymore suggestions I'm all ears.

I have problem of video controller (VGA) compaible (code28) device instance id is PCI\VEN_8086_&DEV_27727&SUBSYS_D6068086&REV_02\3&6\AAA01&0&10


I assume you are using Windows XP. Windows has had a problem with your graphics driver (assuming you installed the correct one) and is defaulting to the basic VGA driver. You need to identify the graphics chipset. If you are using a separate graphics card plugged into one of the expansion slots then check for a model number on it. If you are using the on-board graphics then the motherboard will have a model number. Then you can search on-line for the correct drivers. If you are using a plug-in graphics card then try removing it and re-fitting it.

Verify four things:

1. You are not plugged into the onboard video VGA port

2. Onboard video is disabled in BIOS.

3. Power is actually being applied to the card(make sure the fan spins up)

4. Reseat the card and make sure it is seated properly.

It is possible that the 9400GL is not compatible with your motherboard. Might be possible that the max video memory is 512MB.
Maybe a BIOS update can solve this.

I would first check BIOS and disable Onboard video (if applicable) and then make sure that graphics port is set for PCI-e and not PCI or pci-e 1x or something.

Check that first. And make sure that card is all the way plugged in. You won't believe how many people don't plug it in all the way.

The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.
