Question about HP NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280, (64 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card
I need some help with this one. My PC display is experiencing problems like corrupt images, faulty animations, sometimes I can see vertical lines on the screen. On the worst case, my PC stops responding from mouse movements or keyboard commands and more often the screen display starts blinking or blacking out. I tried reinstalling the driver a few times already. I put the display configuration & the hardware acceleration bar to the lowest setting & still the problems persists. Only on the windows safe mode and when I disabled the video card on the device manager properties the problems stop occuring. My gut tells me its the Nvidia GeForce2 MX400/400 graphics card that has problem but I still need some feedback from others to make sure. So any opinion will be helpful. THANKS!
Go to the nvdia site and download the driver cleaner, I have been a gamer fo 15yrs, and although I don't play much anymore, nvdia cards, "i am running twin 7900gt's" in SLI configuration., You have one or more of the following happening. One is that you need to remove "with their tool all the remnants of the old drivers, they are all over your computer, including the registry. Next get ready to install the latest version, and after downloading them, shut all of your virus and spybot type programs, you can unplug the modem or pull out the rj45, for a few minutes. Next install after you had virus checked everything first, just rt click and scan it with your virus program. That should do it, nvidia will not run properlly unless you completely remove the old fragments, and will not install with your virus software on, good gaming to you, Peace,Gym

I have the same card....and my PC stops responding from mouse movements sometimes, but not anymore. I found that if I always use the HIBERNATE feature of Windows, that my video problems vanish, so I think the problem is related to video RAM, but not sure, because virtual memory caching plays a large role during wake from hibernate. Also ensure that BIOS video settings are not too extreme, go with the normal or default video settings.
