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.

Ugrade Lenovo 8113 to GeForce 8500GT 512 -Problems?


Not a compatibility issues per se, but their could be a Driver conflict.

Install the Drivers FIRST, then power down, computer unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static precautions, and install the graphics card.

Plug the monitor into the graphics card, plug the computer into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

(The drivers are on the installation CD that comes with the Nvidia GeForce 8500GT graphics card. Just install the CD, and load the software. The drivers will automatically be loaded)

If you install a device first, (Such as a graphics card), Windows will break it's neck trying to find suitable drivers.
Windows will match up one of it's thousands of generic drivers.

Then you come along, and install THE drivers.

Driver conflict.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

If you have already installed the graphics card, then powered the computer up, and installed the drivers, I suggest you do this;

Computer off, and unplugged from power. Open the computer case.
(I prefer to remove all cables to the computer, and lay it on it's side on a clean towel, on a table)

Observe Anti-Static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.

TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, BEFORE you reach inside the computer, or take a device out of it's anti-static bag.

Should you get up in the middle of working on your computer, and leave, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

Remove the GeForce 8500GT.
Plug the monitor into the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard.
(VGA port

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in.
Hold it in for a count of Five seconds.
(And I mean at least Five. Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.
One of which is Integrated Graphics.

Computer case open, cables plugged back in, computer in normal position.
Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

When Windows has fully loaded, go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.

Remove anything you see associated with the GeForce 8500GT.
(DO NOT remove anything in the Windows files. It's a separate section you have to go into anyway, but thought I would warn you in advance, just in case)

Restart the computer. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart)

Once Windows has fully loaded again, install the software off of the CD disk, that comes with the GeForce 8500GT graphics card.

If you are asked to restart your computer - No.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally.
(Start>Turn Off Computer>Turn Off)

Unplug your computer from power. Observe Anti-static precautions. Install the GeForce 8500GT.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card.
Plug the computer into power.
Wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Everything works okay, close the computer case.

I recommend you to buy ATI 4670 instead since it is much more powerful than you listed above & now the price should be around $64+
It is much better for GTA IV than those you listed.

COMPUTER GOES SHUTDOWN WHEN PLAYING HIGH-END GAMES


If your mobo wasn't compatible with your video card, you wouldn't get a screen at all.
Yes upgrade your directx to 10
and yes upgrade your power supply to a 650Watt or greater.
The problem is most likely that you have a low wattage PSU and
when your vcard request more power to run higher graphic games than the
Windows Interface, your computer shuts down because it doesn't have enough power to give.

Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard


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.
