Vid card not being detected

Q: Vid card not being detected

I recently bought a new video card the gt 220. I connected it to the slot correctly and everything, the fan on the card goes on when i power the pc but its not being detected as a video device. it says its a pci-e 2.0 slot but in minimum req says any pci-e slot will work not necessarily a 2.0 i dont know which i have. I used to have a video card that died on me and now im thinking it might have been the slot that died. I don't have access to another card to check if the slot works or not with a known working video card. Just want to know what you guys thought about it because the video does go on its just not detected.

A:New Card Not Detected

Installing drivers will do nothing if your board/windows isnt picking it up.

I had this problem a while back, I had to re plug it in a few could also be your cable thats dodgy considering it isnt picking your old one up now either, how old is the board it possible that the slot is faulty?

I just bought this GFX card for a brand new PC I bought that had onboard.

I have a PCI express port and inserted the graphics card yet my monitor will not start up with the PC when I turn it on (the light on the monitor which should turn green when the display shows stays orange and no display shows). I have checked the monitor cables, the graphics card connections and absolutely everything I can think but still it just won't work and the card is not being detected. I also tried to install the drivers with my monitor plugged into the onboard and it said 'no suitable hardware found for these drivers'.

Would appreciate some help.

My graphics card is not being detected by windows xp. I was using the computer and was installing a windows update when the computer monitor just turned black and the signal got lost. I rebooted the pc but the monitor still didn't receive a signal. I connected the monitor to the onboard graphics plug and went to device manager and the graphics card didn't show up under display adapters. After uninstalling the drivers and updating the bios it still doesnt show and I tried reinstalling new nvidia drivers but it says the nvidia setup program cannot locate any drivers compatible with your hardware and it just closes. Video card: Nvidia 8600gt

Hey Guys,  I am lost. I got my new GT750m5, removed the DVD, added the new card and nothing. I tried reinstalling the Nvidia drivers and nothing. IT doesn't even show up in the device manager. I even have the new 170w power adapter plugged in and the power management set to performance. Any ideas?  I also tried uninstalling the Intel display driver, then the Nvidia display driver and then I tried just installing the Nvidia driver (both the provided lenovo Nvidia driver and the newest 331.65). I keep getting errors about needing an intel driver installed first. Suggestions?

So lastly (right around when the anniv. update occured) my sound stopped working on my windows 10 tablet, ive researched it on the web for about a week, reinstalled windows, tried to update the driver but nothing is seems to work. The fact that my tablet is an INSIGNIA NS-P11W7100 is not helping since its a cheap brand and the company doesnt offer help for making their own drivers. One weird thing ive noticed is that ,when i go to control panel->device manager-> audio, video and game controller, it shows.. 2 different sound card Is it normal, what should i try next?

I am using a AMDtek AN983 10/100 PCI Adapter LAN card to access my broadband internet.The OS on my PC is Windows XP professional SP2. Whenever I restart my PC the LAN card is not detected. It is detected only when I turn off the power and start the PC all over again. The driver seems to be installed properly cuz when I turn on the PC all over again the LAN card is detected and the internet is fine. The problem arises when I restart my PC only.Can somebody help me out??

A:LAN card not detected when I restart my PC.

Looks like your PC performs a soft reset and your NIC can't handle it. Check the BIOS setup for something that would always force a full hardware reset.

mmino, welcome to the forums.

First make sure that the Via onboard is disabled in the bios. Next re-seat the card (maybe even try a different PCI slot) and try the driver again.

A:[HELP] No Sound Card Detected

Hi, Having a similar problem with a Medion laptop (Intel core duo 1.8GH and 3G ram) annd W7.
The Realtek sound card is showing in Device Manager and shown working correctly and indeed it plays CD or sound from streaming. However in Sound Control Panel the only device for playback is the speakers; and for recording only the microphone is listed. No mention of Realtek. Plugging a USB sound card in gives the same result; in Device mgr but only speakers and mike in Sound. This means I cannot do VOIP or record from streaming directly. I have to link the speaker output by 3.5 mm jacks to Mic input to record streaming. No good for VOIP. VOIP programs state no sound card found. Any ideas please?

Dell Latitude C810 laptop
Windows XP Professional

Lately (for reasons unknown to me) my laptop has been really sluggish and I have received the error notification (blue screen) that the nv4_disp file has some kind of error and is stuck in an infinite loop. I have done a system restore to about a month ago and things seem to be working better but I've noticed that in the device manager there is no video card listed under display adapters or anywhere for that matter. Shouldn't there be a video card there somewhere? I didn't disable a video card. Is there any way to get Windows to detect my video card short of opening the laptop and unplugging it and plugging it back in?

I was hoping someone would be able to assist me. I have an ASUS 8An-SLI motherboard with NVIDIA running windows xp 32bit. Recently I had to change out my chipset fan, since then my sound card is not being detected. I have tried to search through device manager, control panel add new hardware, I have gone to asus and nvidia and downloaded drivers - although asus only pointed twoards realtek. A friend of mine built this computer about 4 years ago for me and I'm not sure if the audio is built into the motherboard or not. (the friend is unreachable for any advice) I first noticed no sound when I loaded up winamp and recieved a message saying bad direct sound driver.

Any ideas???

I recently had to reinstall XP and since then my graphics card (Geforce FX 5200) isn't detected in device manager, although the monitor is plugged into it and works fine.

Is it likely to be something to do with the motherboard drivers because I had to reinstall the onboard sound drivers for it?

I tried to install the latest Geforce drivers but the program said it couldn't detect a viable card either.

Dear All,

Kindly advice for the problem I faced. My OS is W7 32 bit and on OS Vista, the card reader is working properly. After upgrade to W7 the hardware stopped working and undetected. My platform is Acer Aspire 4935G; CPU Core 2 Duo P8400; 4GB RAM 553hz.

Driver software has been downloaded and run, but not detect the hardware.

A:Card Reader not detected

Even though it doesn't work, does the card reader appear in the Device Manager? If not, under the Action menu button, select Scan For Hardware Changes (for this option to appear, highlight the computer name at the top of the list) and see if it appears then. Usually, if a driver can't see the hardware, it is because it is not listed in the Device Manager. Not being listed can be due to a bad connection or defective hardware.

As best as I can find, Dell has no listing of Windows 7 32 bit drivers, they only have 64 bit drivers. Perhaps if you could contact them, they could provide you one. Is there a reason you switched to 32 bit from 64 bit?

Hiya, guys.

I'm having trouble with an onboard network chipset. HWiNFO32 identifies it as "nVidia nForce Networking Controller" with the vendor description "NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Adapter Driver". I've tried searching for these drivers but have had no luck.

The motherboard is an ECS GeForce6100PM-M2 with an nVidia nForce 6100-405/430 chipset. The ECS website has been anything but helpful. They list the NVIDIA NAM driver but it hasn't worked.

I'm trying to get this to work with Wndows XP x64 Edition but regular 32-bit XP pro fails to recognise it too. Weirdly enough it works fine in Vista x64 and also in Ubuntu 10.10.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, guys. This thing's been driving me round the bend!

I put it in my friend's quikfire and it is not detected. I put it in my DSi and it is not detected.

However, my computer still detects it, and I can browse through the files and play music and everything.

Yip, the GTX 460 INNO3D requires both PCI-e 6pin power leads attached. 400W PSU is a bit low. A quality 450W is the lowest recommended.
You may also need to go into the motherboards BIOS and change the VGA detection order, so that it looks for a graphics card on the pci-e slot instead of using the onboard HD3300.

Hihi Jumanji,

need your help again

could you please advise how to recover files from micro sd card, it was not detected

please advise
thank you

A:Micro Sd card not detected

There are many capable heads here who can help provided you give full details of your problem. I would advise you not to tag on to an old thread. Instead start a new thread and give full details of your problem.
For instance 1. make/manufacturer/capacity of the Micro SD Card 2. Where was it being used: a phone? a camera? with details of the device in which it was used 3. When it happened? Was there any precipitating factor you can think of?

Given below is a typical post by a user:

"I bought my Xperia Z a while ago, and with it, a micro SD card. I've been using the phone (with the sd card inserted) without any problems. I've stored my pictures, music, files, etc. in there and always worked fine.
Yesterday, I got a notification on my phone about a new software update. Once I got home, I had the phone updating only to discover that after it finished, my sd card is no longer detected...

Any help would be appreciated please."

The user here has more or less defined his problem and any missing data we can always query and get it.

A new thread will also attract the attention of many (and not only jumanji) and you are likely to get a resolution, when many heads put their thoughts and experiences. So even if jumanji fails, there would be someone else better equipped to deal with it.

So try and make a new thread on the above lines. Don't be afraid and go ahead. We are here to help you. But help us to help you by giving as much details as you can.

( In the above case do you know what was the resolution? "Sony apologises for Xperia Z sudden-death glitch" There was someone who instantly came out with this while others were desperately trying to analyse the problem to find a solution. No, I am not saying that this applies to your case, but see how the details given by the user helped nail the problem.)

So get on to a new thread. While I go to sleep a shortwhile from now, others will be there to work on it and help you. I shall see it only after another 10 hours.

A:Video card not being detected?

Filesystem corruption and very slow system can both indicate a failing hard drive. This laptop originally came out in 2011, and if you bought it then, and have been using it daily since, it's very likely the hard drive is wearing out.

If I was you, I would find out what brand hard drive, go to the manufacturer's website, and if they have a drive checking app, download that, install it, and run it.

I tried so many things to make it work..I formated my pc, I changed settings in BIOS and made PCI-E primmary video adapter, I removed and inserted again the CMOS and still the card is nowhere in the device manager...I also want to say that the graphics card fan is working...plz help me because i m starting getting mad!!!

A:My graphics card is not detected...

Whoa, why did you do all that? Flash the BIOS with "ASROCK Conroe Bios 1.83 (or newer)" and "Save and Exit" BIOS R3.0&o=BIOS

Here is goes:

when I turned on my pc, monitors says "no input detected" . At first I think my monitor was the problem but when I connect it to my laptop it works. So I thought the problem is my video card but I inserted my old video card and it is still not detected. So I think its not the video card problem. Right now I just using my MoBo Graphics..

any replies would be much appreciated..thanks!

MoBo : MSI MS-7267
Video Card: GeForce 9500GT

You can try the same cards in another Computer(if possible). If it works then it is the slot on the MoBo and if it doesn't then its the cards.

Hi All,

I have a new tiny Micro SD card reader for my XP but the PC doesn't detect it when I plug it in the USB slot. The PC makes a noise ( when a piece of hardware has been plugged into the USB port) but when I look on 'My Computer' I cannot see it.

Any advice?

Did you get a CD with software for it? If so try installing the software and it will tell you to plug it in. If that doesn't work then it maybe a problem with you usb ports.

Also, when I go into system, for some reason it only detects 3.87 GB of RAM... I have 64 bit windows 7 <-- it only started happening since the new graphics card was installed.Click to expand...

That's probably because your onboard video is allocating some of it.

I'm a little unclear on what you did. Are you saying you plugged in the monitor to the Radeon HD 2400 while the PC was still running? If I've misunderstood that, then when you boot up the PC, you are seeing the motherboard splash screen and can get into the BIOS? If so, then it just won't boot into Windows? Could you clarify?

I failed to install a PCI Lan Card, it seems that it can not be detected, and I found some posts here that upgrading bios might help. Does anyone know if bios has to be upgraded from v02.65 to 00.02.68 for the PCI slots to work ? Is there other known issue on v02.65 ? We really need to install dual Lan cards and have 2 isolated network with our desktop.  Please help. Million thanks.

It will if you uninstalled the standard VGA driver.

Was this card with this machine from day one, so it was a known working card with the original set up?

HelloThe app might say the true - wwan card isn't installed.Open Device Manager, Network adapters section. Is there device, broadband adapter related?

Do you see two video cards (display adapters) in the control panel? Seriously, it would be odd for the motherboard to get damaged so that only the discrete video was bad...I would think if that got physically damaged the computer would refuse to boot up. I might suggest a reinstall of the operating system. I suspect software corruption resulting from the fall. You can also try to run a full UEFI diagnostic by tapping F2 as you power up. Let's make sure the hard drive is not damaged. What damage was done and what did you fix already?

We bought a GeForce 9600 gt graphics card online and got it in the mail and installed it. Then we needed an adapter, so after some research, we got one. I have a dell inspiron 530.

I tried plugging the monitor cord into the new card spot, and the monitor stayed black, like in power save mode, so I plugged the monitor into the motherboard again. I've looked on the GeForce site for the bios, but the site says it can't detect the hardware.

I know I need to download something for this to work, but I can't get any information that's helpful on the matter. Could you guys help me out?

Hello @TheNikachu, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you are not seeing the integrated graphics chip, despite trying to install drivers. I am happy to help with this. When you check in device manager is there any entry at all for the graphics adapter? Is there anything showing up that is an unknown device?  If so try removing the unknown device and then scan for hardware changes, from within device manager. Let me know if it pull up the graphics adapter or not. If it does, then try using the HP Support Assistant, to find and install the correct driver. Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

I have a Gigabyte AMD socket AMD 2 Motherboard with a onboard graphics card (Nvidia Geforce 6100) but recently i bought a new graphics card GIgabyte Geforce 7200 GS.
I have place it in and tried to change the bios by disabling the onboard graphics card but there wasnt a definate option. There was 2 options that refered to graphics cards in Advance Bios Features, the two were; Init Display first and Onboard GPU.
In the Init Display first, there was 3 options, PCI slot, Onboard VGA or PEG. (which do i select?)
In the Onboard GPU, there was two options, Enable If No Ext PEG or Always Enable ( of course Enable If No Ext PEG but is this the way to disable it?)

When i put the card in and insert the plug to the graphics card, my monitor would not detect the graphic and the screen would remain black.

Any Ideas? Thanx in advance

A:New graphics card not detected

You should select PEG display first. This may sound kinda dumb lol, but does your new card have a power connector on it (it may be a 4-pin normal connector, or the new PCI-E 6 pin connector)?

If so, check it out, also you might want to try to reset the BIOS.

And BTW, welcome to TS

You should be able to use the driver at support and download site. Just enter the full type number without the dashes, examin the listed modem for that unit, then download the driver that fits the description in the Thinkpad Matrix for that model.

i recently upgraded from win98se to win xp pro, and after doing so my soundblaster 16 ISA is not even detected by win xp. any ideas on why?
i have read many forums but cant find an answer or how to fix it. i have been to the creative website for answers, i have tried to update my bios . i have checked my settings in bios but cant seem to find any onboard audio controls that i can disable. i built this computer a few years ago so i have no manufacturer to turn to. in talking with different people, some say even though it is ISA, it should still work with win xp. any help would be greatly appreciated ...

I have a Notebook HP Pavillion DV6 3113sa with Windows 7 64-bit
My Broadcom Bluetooth and Wireless Combo Card is not being detected. On device manager> Network adapters I cannot see my the wireless adapter. Realtek PCIe GBE Family controller is in the device manager though. Also I can access internet with an ethernt cable and my phone and other computer can detect my wireless router. The wireless light is also continually orange and will not change.
So neither bluetooth or wireless is working. I have down loaded the 2 Broadcom drivers from the HP website but neither fix the problem. However the bluetooth driver says something like 'Driver failed to install because no bluetooth device was found'.

Please help!


A:Wireless Adapter Card not detected

anything in the bios to turn them on / off

HP often have a switch to turn the wireless off - this also turns the bluetooth off - it may be off and actually remove the adapter from the device manager

I know on Sony if you turn the bluetooth off - via the wireless switch it removes bluetooth from device manager

Hello there,I have a dell 1558 laptop 1 year now, some days ago i accidentaly understood that my graphic card is not detected anymore by my system, i searched it and it appears error code 45 which means that my card is not in the right place. My graphic card is nvidia 920M 4GB.Here is 2 pics from speccy and device manager.speccydevice managerI tried to check for updates on my graphic card but everytime i try to install it tells me that i dont have compatible component or something like that..I have also run dell diagnostics on the gpu but it only check the default intel hf graphics 5500 , it doesnt recognise nvidia. thanks in advance.

A:Main Graphic Card not detected

If this is a Studio 1558, it has either Intel or ATI/AMD video - not both.
If it's a different model, please verify the exact model number of the system - it's not the one you've indicated.
If it's a 7558, it has either Intel-only or Intel-nVidia hybrid graphics - the latter was an option on some models -- it was not standard on all of them.

You need another pc you can install it in to test.

But you can remove it, then reinstall it to make sure it is seated in the slot correctly, it just may have come loss.

Re-install Motherboard drivers

Relevancy 42.57%

This is a fairly new system that I have conjured and I am a fairly new person to the world of computer parts. I've been trying to enable the video card so that I may use it to play beautiful games, however, the motherboard has other plans for me. It wants me to suffer. I've talked to multiple people about trying to get the card to work, and all of them have failed to figure out the issue. So far, the AMD drivers should be uninstalled, the card appears to be in a working state, (although the outside may be lying to me), and the integrated graphics should be disabled. With all of this in mind, why is the card not being detected? I turn to this forums in the name of the turtle to solve such a problem.

Hi there just wanted some help regarding my sound is all Last night I was happily Sound Card Windows x64 7 detected not in on my computer searching the web Sound Card not detected in Windows 7 x64 I then shut my computer down for the night and as always I tunred the power off at the socket after a safe shut-down The morning after I wake up and notice that my sound has Sound Card not detected in Windows 7 x64 suddenly stopped working The sound card isn't detected nothing I've tried switching OS reinstalling Windows and also clearing the CMOS using a jumper I've tried everything but I think my onboard sound card is kaput When I install Windows for the first time on a clean install it has the drivers pre-installed so I dont need to worry about installing them I have tried installing the drivers from Gigabyte too but nothing it's like my sound card isn't even there What do you think guys am I better going to Scan to get a replacement or buying a cheapo sound card Any help is appriciated Thanks MrWhaleTrain

A:Sound Card not detected in Windows 7 x64

Generally, Windows 7 will install a lot of device drivers, but not all drivers and the generic sound driver that Windows installs may or may not work (or work properly). After installing Windows the best option is to reinstall all the drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's install disc.

As you have a gigabyte (what I also have) install all the drivers, but you don't need all the extra software, which can cause problems in some cases. Case in point the Gigabyte "easy tune" that came with my motherboard caused sound glitches due to CPU interruptions.

I installed an esata card on my PC, it did not get detected, how ever I manage to instal the driver, still no detection, nor the external esata Hard Disk showed up, after Googling etc, I enabled AHCI , and restarted, still no luck, Does this means, before installing the Windows 7, one has to eable AHCI from the BIos?
Any help would be appreciated?

A:eSata Card not detected by Windows 7

Your Windows 7 installation is SATA Mode specific. If you installed it in IDE mode then you can't switch to AHCI mode in the BIOS unless you install the AHCI driver and make the proper registry change like this:
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

Also, some hardware requires you to install the driver software first, then install the hardware to complete the installation. If this is so it should be documented in the hardware's manual.

Note: it is best practice to uninstall any new driver software and perform a System Restore to a time before the first installation attempt before trying again. This insures a "clean slate". You can end up in a real mess sometimes otherwise.

I know this question is asked a lot but my question is whether or not my computer can handle my new graphics card, if my computer isn't detecting the graphics card because it's DOA or just installed wrong. as far as research goes my computer should be able to handle the graphics card, it came with a AMD Radeon R9 200 and i tried installing a MSI Radeon R9 270. As far as physical difference between the graphics cards the R9 200 had 2 PCI-E power sockets, the new one only has one. would it be not enough power? outdated hardware? i installed the driver it came with and made sure i uninstalled the old one but still detects my old GPU.

I recently rebooted Windows Vista on my laptop, but am now having troubles running games that I had previously had no problem running. I ran dxdiag and noticed that under Display there was no video card listed under Device. There's also no driver listed under Main Driver.

I am positive that there's a graphics card in my laptop, I have definitely seen NVIDIA GeForce (I don't know what graphics card I have) or something in the dxdiag before. I'm guessing that rebooting Vista has affected the computer's detection of the video card, but have no idea how I can fix this.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Edit: I've attached the dxdiag report in case it's useful.

A:Solved: Video Card not detected

You need to reinstall the graphics card driver.

You can download the driver from the Samsung website. If you have the R51 then here are the downloads:
You will need to download the Vista version for the NVidia graphics if you think you had an Nvidia card: (Win Vista VGA(Graphics),NVIDIA)

when i started my computer recently my video card (gforce 7300) was suddenly not detected. the situation now is that i have to pull out the card from the pci express and replace it before i start up everytime, otherwise it is not detected and i have to plug my monitor into the onboard socket. this system has been running fine for about 2 years until this sudden glitch.
i borrowed a gforce 7600 and put that in and it worked great for about 4-5 startups then the same problem occured
i have an AMD 3200 processor on a gigabyte motherboard. i have only one pci express slot
i have updated the bios on the motherboard and the relevant drivers to no avail.

Have a Dell PC with a media card reader installed. Used to work fine ... then didn't. Got Dell hardware support ... which led to the replacement of the reader and the motherboard. Still cannot get the reader to be detected by XP. Have tried some system restores and get message that cannot restore to previous point - no changes. Not sure I agree with that. Wondering if this is now a software (XP) issue. Any ideas? Thanks.
