Question about MSI N430GTMD1GD3OCLP GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) (1 GB) 128bit DDR3 PCI Express 20 x16 HDCP Ready Video Video Card

2 Answers

I installed everything and it seemed fine, then when I restarted the computer the desktop was at 800x600. I tried to change the resolution back but when I did this the screen goes black. I shut the computer down then tried to restart. I get the windows 7 start up screen then it goes black again. When I start in safe mode it works fine. I have the latest driver from the NVIDA web site. I remove the card and it reverts back to the original and everything works fine again. What more can I try?

Did you hook up your monitor directly to your video cards' visual port (whether it's VGA, DVI or HDMI) ?
Did you make sure the driver you downloaded are compatible with your graphics card ? with your operating system ?

Frankly, I don't have any more suggestion than looking in your graphics card's manual to check troubleshoots. They might give you an idea.

One more thing, if you time ahead of you, you might want to check if your motherboard is compatible with your graphics cards. To do that you might want to pay a visit to the almighty Google.

Good luck !

OK, when you first boot up, press F8 and select VGA MODE 800x600. Then when you get to the desktop, which you now will be able to see, go to your Video card resolution settings choose for now say, 800x600,and reboot,next time at the desktop, you can change resolution more carefully this time, :) Also, make sure you check the box, to apply, the resolution settings, without restarting the PC

Dialogue box in the middle of the screen

Out of range usually means that the computer is trying to use a resolution that is unsupported by the monitor. Try loading the PC in safe mode (for windows, press F8 before windows loads) and change the desktop resolution to 800x600, which is supported by pretty much any monitor. Restart the computer normally and you should get your video. Once inside windows you can experiment with different resolutions, and when it goes out of range, just wait 15 seconds for it to go back to 800x600.

Display resolution goes from 1024x600 to 800x600 at start up.

try reinstalling the drivers for the onboard graphics and for the monitor. Might be the monitor is not supporting the default resolution.

Video problem

I had this same problem. What worked for me was going into safe mode, and in there I removed the video card from the device manager. When I restarted normally & windows re-installed it I was set back to the 800 X 600 which seems to be the default.

If that does not work I guess you could fall back to the old standby of delete windows & reinstall. While not my 1st choice it would fix the problem. Or another thought is take the machine to someone that has a better monitor, load into windows set it back to 800 X 600 & shut down. Back home it should be set again.

Desktop resolution

turn power off... turn power on, right after turn on, keep tapping F8 till a boot screen shows up. then select safe mode.
after you boot up into windows, change the setting.
if it won't let you then you need to go into device manager and uninstall the display adapter. then restart computer.
the display adapter should auto install itself to default 800x600 or 1024x768.
