Sorry for not being tech-savvy enough to properly explain my issue. What I'm dealing with is that I'm trying to recover a hand-me down computer that my brother had given up on. It has an Nvidia 7600GS card in it. When I start Windows (xp), the screen resolution is restriced to 800x600 with 4-bit color, on a 22" monitor, to say the least it's ugly. If I disable the video driver, I can turn the resolution up to 1600x1200 but everything moves really jerky. I've tried downloading "fresh" drivers from Nvidia, but get the same results.
I'm sure I haven't really given enough information, but I'm not really sure what more you need.
If you're really sure that the video card is ok and the rest of the system components are compatible with it, I suggest to search for a nVidia driver on www.guru3d.com ...they have modifyed video drivers to work better.Also, a directX 9.0c download would be helpfull......

Goto device manager , uninstall the card. go into control panel and check that the driver is uninstalled from the programs list. Swich of the pc for a minute or two then reboot Windows updares does not download drivers for graphics cards so will not install or reinstall the driver that is causing the issue, 307? Users forget to uninstall from program manger in control panel which is why the card keeps reinstalling with the undesired driver.
Please let me know what happens

the hp dv8380us has an issue with the nvidia 7600 go graphics chip when the manufactured this laptop they didn't use the proper heat sink and heat sink compound so it causes the graphics chip to over heat. and when it over heats it causes errors as you explained. i also have a hp dv8380us and have the same issues and haven't found a fix. mine also shows the picture 4 times as big as the lcd so i can only see 1 fourth of the picture i can see it fine if i hook it up through the vga port though. hope this explains your problem.
This is the latest driver for your video card here!!
The problem that you are describing sounds like a video card driver issue or a system cooling issue!
Also make sure your operating system is fully updated (Windows Update) .
Does it only happen with one particular game, or all the games?
Also look at how hot your computer is getting! Ensure that your processor is being properly cooled and there is enough ventilation within your system!
get back to me if any questions
