Gainward Geforce 6500

Hi there, i have started a new job. IT buys bought Gainward Power Pack! Geforce 6500 256MB DDR2 6 series graphics cards. It was put into an IBM PC but: (1)i have lost all resolution settings. the CD that came with the card does not have drivers. our support guys downloaded some drivers but it is still the same. I only have 1 x screen rsolution 800 x 600. (2) The aim was to have a split screen to e.g read emails on one screen and work in a spreadsheet on the other screen. Both screen show and do exactly what is happening on the primary/secondary screen. Any ideas? Thanks Rene

Hi Rene. What i'd try at first, is to install the standard NVidia Forceware drivers. Here's a link to them : You just need to select the correct series in the list, you have a Geforce 6 series. Download the forceware package, install it, reboot, and you should be good to go with all the resolutions. Hope that helps ! cheebster.

If you are running windows xp then go into "control panel", "display", and then select the "settings" tab. You should be able to select your second screen and then select the "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" checkbox. Then any windows you want just need to be dragged across to the second screen and maximised. also on the settings tab you can change the resolution for both screens. Hope this helps, if you have a different operating system than windows XP the procedure is likely to be similar, ask if you need more help :)

Hey there, you are having trouble because of the simple fact that, no matter what your GPU is 256MB VRAM will NOT play full HD(doesn't matter if it says it's supported).
For 720p 512mb is okay but if you want the full 1080p HD experience go with a 1GB + Card
If you want a recommendation go with the GTX 455 1GB.

Have fun :)
