Nvidia 6600 card removal from gateway 838GM

I suspect that my video card is bad. I have had problems with the monitor going black. I tried a lot of things so far but not change. updated drivers, turing off hibernate, screen saver, lower refresh rate, turn off acceleration, carefully dusted out the computer, etc. Problem still there.

I want to test if the card is the problem by removing it. My monitor is connected to the nvida port. Can I just turn off the card in preferences, remove the card, plug the monitor back into the original monitor port and restart the computer?

Or, is there more to it than thant?

I feel you got a failing video card my friend as if the slot failed you would not have got that far!.

Try another video card, you can get them cheap from Fry's.com hold on to your receipt just in case you have a failed motherboard (witch i can doubt that)

No color Red, Dell XPS 400, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE video card


Mike,

I would recommend for you to try different monitor, so that you can isolate the problem.

If same problem occur, try to plug in your video card into another PCI slot in your computer. Cleaning the gold fingers of the video card with a clean cotton cloth might help.

Use a blower to remove some dust on the PCI slot.

Or try inserting the video card in another computer. If you get the same problem on another computer, you need to replace the card.

Good luck!

Nvidia F5200


You could try right-clicking your desktop and going to settings. There you need to select the other (grey or a 2 in it) monitor and select "extended desktop". If that doesn't help, check the monitor cable. (maybe try another one, you never know...)
If it's still not detected, you could look around the NVidia control panel (I myself have always had ATi graphics cards) for a "detect monitor" option.

XP Service pack 3 will not boot with NVidia Geoforce 6600 drivers


There's a chance that your screen resolution is set higher than your monitor can handle. Try booting into safe mode and see if you can resolve the problem. You may also have to configure the BIOS to use the expansion slot that your using for the primary video, and turn the integrated (on-board) one off. (If you haven't already done so)

Unknown reason for FPS decay - Nvidia GeForce 6600 / 256MB DDR / AGP 8x / DVI / TV-OUT / Video Card Graphic Card


dude. even if it's an issue that your warrenty can handle it's probably the card. chances are your overusing it and it's just gone bad. if you can live off of that card just go pick up an 8400gt or 8600gt. you'll see a dramatic inprovement

Did you try installing and updating the driver of the graphics card dedicated to the operating system "VISTA" ? Sometimes there is some difference between vista's driver and XP's driver.
