I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm looking at a new cooler for my GeForce 9600GT but I honestly can say I don't know what I'm looking at. The card Idles around 49-52C, and I'm not comfortable at all with it.

I have a $50 limit, would anyone mind giving me a hand?

A:New cooler for Nvidia GeForce 9600GT

49-52CClick to expand...

That is a perfectly normal temperature, possibly on the low side.
What you want to make sure is that the temperature under load is below 70 - 75.
You can just use programs like RivaTuner, ATi tool, or Evga Precision (my favorite) and turn up the stock fan speed if you havn't already.

The 9600gt is a very cool low end card, there are few if any coolers for it.

Hi all My computer was top of the line years ago The past few years my computer has been freezing crashing and bluescreening due to the kind of functionality I force it through namely the use of multiple programs at once internet livestream games The fan hasn t worked for over a year now it was choking I simply turned it off and often attempted to keep my system as cool as possible using a large floor fan Today it gave it s death knoll - freezing with video ram artifacts all over the screen I had been I messing around with the EVE Online character creator with internet playing music and Steam open naturally Un- and reinstallation of the drivers would not fix the artifacts it had forced non-native resolution it wouldn t go beyond x or something native is x and was happily informing me that I wasn t quot currently using a display attached to an Nvidia GPU quot despite the fact that the second I uninstalled the drivers my computer was GTX Nvidia 8800 for Geforce Replacement searching for and reinstalling them again I gave up and shut down to look at the power supply and when I turned it back on it was miraculously in it s native resolution and artifact-free but I ve abused it long enough now that it probably only has a few months left and is in desperate Replacement for Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTX need of replacement I realize it might even be artifact-ridden next time I turn it on Dell pre-built desktop years old Windows Vista Ultimate bit Intel Core Quad CPU at GHz GB RAM I think my power supply is max W but I m having trouble figuring the label out so I attached a picture in case I m sorely mistaken I m looking for something that works within my current specs approximately the same size as the Geforce GTX my case won t fit anything much bigger as far as I can tell and I can t get a new case because it barely fits height-wise where I need it to go As I said I use multiple programs and I especially game on my computer so I need something that can handle my usage On the other hand I am looking to completely replace my system within a few years with something custom from Origin so I don t want to be pouring money into this system So - something that will allow me to eke out a few more years within my other current specs without costing me a bundle Say around or Please let me know if you need more information and thanks in advance nbsp

A:NVIDIA GeForce Go7300 about to expire? Can't source a replacement in Australia!!

Hi Tony, you may be in luck, what you are describing is consistent with a RAM failure, not a graphics card failure, the thing that points me toward this conclusion is that you are experiencing slow opening times for programs that don't require any GPU power, maybe a quick look online at some cheap ram sticks may be a good idea

Hey i have a question regarding mobile graphics card. i was looking at two different laptops <>



one is equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS and the other with a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M.

I found on notebookcheck that the 9400m is ranked higher than the 9300m, but the 9400 is an integrated card, and that the 9300m has dedicated memory! i am confused because i always believed that a dedicated card will be better than integrated so i am very confused!!!

I'm finding that now that I've got two of them running in crossfire the XFX card I have with the reference ATI cooler is running hot. After last gaming session MSI Afterburner reported 87C max temp. So I've been playing with the idea of selling it and getting another MSI card which comes with a very good cooler, or just buying a cooler (which would probably cost around the same as selling the XFX card and putting money toward a new MSI one).

Anyone got any experience? Any recommended coolers? Tips for installation?


A:Anyone tried replacement cooler for HD5850?

Hi Arris,
This cooler is very good if you want to go the replacement route. I Don't know about prices in Scotland, but here the prices on the 58xx series are very good, and as good as they are probably going to get. as far as installation tips. more GPU's get damaged because people pull straight up when they remove the heat-sink. When you are ready to remove it, gently twist it back and forth keeping it on center until you break the (now very set) thermal compound loose. Be very sparing on the thermal compound as well. it does not take much to cover the small chip.
hope that helps some.

Hey Techspot guys, I am currently looking for a new computer. I was looking into building a new rig for gaming, web-browsing, word processing, etc. I have had some wonderful feedback so far, but after talking to the wife, she said she would like to get a laptop so we could use it anywhere. I am looking for any ideas on a reliable desktop replacement, without spending a fortune (Alienwares are nice, but several thousand seems a bit excessive) Do any of you out there know of any affordable gaming laptops, or a place where a decent barebones/ buildable/customizable laptop can be found? Thanks in advance

A:I am looking for a desktop replacement. Ideas?

So far Alienware have been pure trouble.
You can expect to like any of this in the upper third of the price range... below that, and you don't have a good game machine that will last: Dell, Gateway, Toshiba, HP. Avoid Sony, Compaq, Alienware if you want reliability. A high end Dell is worth the money. It is the low cost laptops that are trouble for what you describe... You need quality components, multiple fans, good distribution of cooling air, and lots of memory.

Then I check out ASUS page and there I find it.

Nvidia designs and makes the GeForce line of graphics chips. Other manufacturers such as Asus, evga, BFX, PNY and others then use the Nvidia chips in their graphics card designs.

after i recently fixed my cpu heat issue with a new cooler, i'm turning on to the next disturbance, which is the graphic card.
i've measured up to 80? celsius (should be about 176? in f) when in use (i.e. games) and i'm pretty worried to cause some damage to the card, as i'm sure that that's not the peak of it.

does anybody know of a cooler for this specific card?
i've already did some searching, but only came up with water cooling - which i don't want.

appreciating any input.

I am thinking of getting a new graphics card for x-mas. I currently have a Geforce 8600 GT and i was looking at this GT 220.

Which is better? i think the 220 is but i just wanted some expert confirmation.

GT 220: (scroll down past the 210)

8600 GT: (The right Column)

A:NVIDIA GT 220 VS Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT

Why bother? If you want to upgrade from an 8600GT - you need to buy a card that has a noticable difference.

For example... the 9500/9400GTs are also pretty much re-badged 8600s. Think of the 220 as a smaller and cheaper to make version of the 8600GT with blu-ray decoding abilities. Its more like a bit better version of the 8600GTs.... that costs $65~95.

An ATI 4670 is about $60~95. Heres a nice one at $80:

But for real big speed bumps - look at ATI 4800s/5700s or at least a GTX 260... or even the GT250 (which is a 9800GT which is a 8800GT - UGH! )
These cards are about $ 120~200.

Your power supply will also be important too. Do you know your brand and model number?

Also your computers own performance.

nForce is chip-set, GeForce is graphics. I would say that GeForce 8200P / GeForce 8200P-A-AR is refering to your graphics card not your chip-set.

So I've installed the correct driver as prescribed by one of the members off the NVidia forums. It comes to a part, half-way into the installation that it freezes and you still get that laggy graphics. Now in device driver it says that "Video Controller" it says that "Drivers for this device is not installed. (Code 28)" And I have a choice to "reinstall driver" which is confusing... also have a few choices to update, rollback and uninstall driver. It's been an issue for the past 3 months, although it has worked once when I attempted to install a game - and mysteriuously enabled me to "enable driver".

Thanks a lot if you can help.

I have a quick question that I hope can be answered fairly quickly as this is the last ting I need to know before buying this PC. I am wanting to buy this PC HP Compaq 8000 Small form factor , but I couldn't find any specs on video cards. I need a VERY decent video card because I am a digital artist. I have always had Nvidia cards and they have always worked great, so, was wondering if any of you spec genius' could tell me if the MSI Nvidia GEForce is compatible? If not, what would you recommend?I also need to do a memory upgrade, what is compatible? Thank you in advance

A:Nvidia Geforce

Hi, This is a series of many machines. One machine can have at least one of the following options: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 (integrated)Nvidia GeForce 3G210 Graphics Card (SFF)(CMT)Nvidia Quadro NVS 290 Graphics Card (SFF)(CMT)Nvidia Quadro NVS 295 Graphics Card (SFF)(CMT)ATI Radeon HD 4650 DP Graphics Card (SFF)(CMT)HP ADD2 SDVO + DVI-D Video Adapter (SFF)(CMT)HP DisplayPort to DVI-D Adapter (SFF)(CMT)HP DisplayPort to VGA Adapter (SFF)(CMT)Source: You have to see it first, you still do not know what is inside. After that, you can use options above. Regards.

Okay I bought a NVIDIA GeForce 2 off ebay for my gaming computer but it didn't have the installer. So I was wondering if any of you could help me find a program to install it and i can copy it to a floppy disk and insert it into my other computer, boot it up and voila... so any help very appreciated.

hi can forgive me for my dumbness

can anyone explain to me my Graphic Card Specs

Im asking this because i remember buying this graphic card a year ago having 1gb. Im confused because i can't see 1gb on the specs.

A:Nvidia geforce 210

It depends on the card manufacturer. What you have linked to is the page from NVidia which lists the reference specs for a card of that type. Other manufacturers take the reference design and customize/tweak it. The changes that they typically make is to increase the amount of memory (usually by higher-capacity chips or by inserting chips into otherwise empty memory positions on the PCB) and/or pre-overclock the card (make it run faster than reference).

To find the actual specs for your card, you will need to check the card manufacturer's website (Sparkle, PNY, etc.).

Hi guys. I am planning on upgrading my GTX 555 OEM cause its a little to low end for my taste. The question I have for all the tech-savy people out there is which graphics card should I get? A Geforce GTX 680, 690, or 780? I've heard that the 690 is basically 2 680s running in SLI. If that's true, that means any games that wont work with SLI or don't perform well with SLI, will still have the same problems and I wont be able to do anything about it. So i was wondering which one do you think I should get? I wanna be able to run any next gen games on max settings if not, one below max settings.

Hello every1
i have got a NVIDIA geforce 2 MX 400 graphics card, my windows 7 is automatically installing a standard vga instead of installing my graphics card, i have search alot for the suitable drivers for the mentioned graphics card but no improvement. plz someone help me, i m quite in trouble.

thanx in advance

A:NVIDIA Geforce 2 MX 400

mrViXey, welcome to the forums.

The reason you can't find any drivers for that card is that there aren't any, and haven't been any for close to 5 years. Here is a thread from our graphics card section,

HELP driver for geforce 4 mx 440 agp8x

that most had good luck using the 71.90 XP driver, or you can try the last XP driver,

One thing that won't happen is Aero will not work on that card.

I don't know much about GPUs on PCs, I recently just got a Zotac GT 430 1GB DDR3 and when I go to install it's own drivers from the new March 2012 Nvidia GeForce drivers, it installs this NVIDIA HD Audio drivers and I got no sound since I can't use my Realtek Audio, I have to disable my realtek onboard audio on the BIOS to avoid the system from crashing/freezing, I mostly got freezing. I just need help, I hope someone can tell me how I can install the GT 430's drivers fine and NVIDIA Audio drivers (if I have to) and still use my Realtek Audio without my system having a conflict with NVIDIA and Realtek audio drivers.

What I have been told to fix this (via Steam): use older drivers via from the CD. - But I wanna know what you people here at TechSupportGuy think.

A:NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX 440

paula89, welcome to the Seven Forums.

To answer your question, quite simply you don't. There is not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for that card, as Nvidia dropped support for it a long time ago. The best you can do is the last XP driver,

ForceWare Windows XP/2000 32-bit

Probably have to use compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

to get it to install. It the rest of the computer is of similar vintage as the video card, there is also a good possibility that the video driver won't install due to the lack of a working AGP/GART driver.

nVidia GeForce GT 240 GDDR3 vs. nVidia GeForce GT 220

I've compared these two online, and i'm still not sure which is better.

i just bought the GT240 and 'Can Your Run It' is saying that i cannot run Supreme Commander 2 but not really telling me why. it also says i cannot run Supreme Commander 1 which runs fine on my system.

so i'm thinking of returning the GT240 and getting the GT220.

your thoughts?

A:nVidia GeForce GT 240 vs. GT 220

The GT 240 is a better card then the GT 220, hence the higher model number. Neither is a great gaming card though, but the GT 240 is good enough for most games. See a benchmark here with both cards and lasts years mid range card and the previous years near top card, the 8800GT:,2475.html

Here are the requirements for Supreme Commander 2: Commander 2 Full System Specs

Note the CPU recommended, dual core. Your Pentium 4 is going to be the weak link.

Hey guys, as the title above, the fan on that card is broken, so i need a replacement fan, or the whole hsf if its easier to get.

needs to be quite small/compact (since there's not much space in the pc..) as possible, priced reasonably (cheap as possible, but good quality) and doesn't need to be too flashy.

Just seeing your recommendations before i go around to buying stuff.

Then i got the blue screen of death but it flashed by so quickly that i could not read the error. Every time the computer reboots i have to go to safe mode.
I reformatted my computer and now every time i try to install the driver it craps out again. I go back to safe mode and uninstall the driver and the computer will now boot normally.

A:Which is better and why? Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M or 980 Ti

What? Apples and oranges.

The 980 ti is a discrete desktop card, the 960m is normally used in laptops (or all-in-ones). Until the introduction of the 1080, the 980 ti was about as fast as the Maxwell Titan X, the fastest card nVidia made at the time.

The desktop 960 was more powerful than the 960m. (The 960 also consumes 128W peak or more, which would not be acceptable in a notebook.)

Sample benchmarks:

I suppose that Google can find more and better benchmarks, but I think that these are plausible.

Earlier today, NVIDIA has lifted the covers on a new GPU from their ?Fermi? family specifically targeting gamers: the GeForce GTS 450.

What NVIDIA did with the GTS 450 was look at the latest habits of today?s gamers and designed a GPU that would meet their needs at what will be a good price point for gamers on a budget ($129 according to their blog). According to Valve?s Steam Hardware & Software Survey for July 2010 ? 57% of gamers play between 1280x1024 and 1680x1050 screen resolutions. The Steam Hardware & Software Survey for August 2010 was released as well and that trend still holds true (it?s at 56.03% for August). With that in mind, NVIDIA designed the GTS 450 to provide the best experience on 19? to 22? monitors operating at resolutions between 1280x1024 and 1680x1050. NVIDIA groups their GPUs into ?classes? that gamers would understand:

Hi guys..
Got this card recently.. I have a Intel P4 3.0 GHz and 1 GB of Ram.. I recently also updated my SMPS to 440W..
The problem is when the card is "ON".. Windows XP freezes halfway when its loading.. I read many forums but not many ppl have the same issues.. Most of em suggested to reload `ol drivers.. I've tried the latest one 178.24, 175.19 and 81.95.. Still the same problem occurs.. The best part is the comp only works in Safe Mode with good graphics.. Thats really sad..
Waiting for some "Good" help plz.. Im pissed with this problem.. Btw ive not done any settings in my BIOS.. so if thats to be done then plz do let me know..
Thanks & Cheers..

Well, if the card works fine in safe mode and not during a normal session than I would say it's most definitely a driver issue. Here's what I would try...

Boot into safe mode with card installed... make sure it's seated properly
Run Driver Cleaner Pro (download from Guru3D) to remove old drivers
**You may want to consider reinstalling/updating chipset drivers too**
Go into Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the driver entries from there (clean up)
Restart the computer; boot into Safe Mode again
Reinstall the latest drivers for the video card **after chipset drivers if you chose to update!!**
Restart the computer again; see if it boots normally

If the video card still doesn't work, you might have to update directX or download some Windows updates. I'd say if nothing works after that point, ask for an RMA... might be faulty vRAM or something.

its normal that my video card temperature level is 67* when im not playin no games or using any programs and when i lunch a game it gets to 70+????
its pretty hot i think could burn anytime i think plz any advise thx

A:NVIDIA GeForce 6800

I know that the 6800-Series cards are pretty warm, but it seems a bit (or somewhat) high for an idle temperature. I presume it's in celsius . Make sure the fan is spinning properly and attatched correctly. Open up the side your your case and blow a fan onto the card. I would suggest that you buy something along the lines of this. I say something along the lines of this because I have not personally used a VGA Cooler on anything that I own, but I searched Newegg (great company if you live in the U.S., tell me if you live elsewhere so we at TechSpot can find the correct website for you ), and I searched for the best reviewed cooler, and that came up ! Good Luck :wave: !

A:Nvidia GEForce Experience


Well you are the only one to answer that question: -

Your card is damaged but will work if it is driver down graded. However, you bought a good card & can not use it at it's best. So, I would rip it out & get them to replace it.

Ask them to send the replacement first, if they are that sure it needs replacing!

Hey folks need a little help.

I have the above mentioned card that Dell has diagnosed as bad and out of warranty(14 months old)

How can I tell the manufacturer of the Card, I see nothing on the card itself that tells me this.

I am trying to see if the manufacturer has a warranty on it since dell says they wont.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Today I just bought myself a gtx 960 and I notice that the fans tend to struggle to turn on. What I would like to do to put my mind at ease is to have my fans running all the time so I don't have to worry about them struggling to turn on. I use evga precision x to control the fan speed, however my main question is how much rpm should I put my fans at? I would do 100% but won't that hurt the card overtime? I just need help finding the recommended percent for them to be at during all times of use (gaming or not gaming)


A:Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 Fan Problem

100% would be very fast and and very loud, that is what it would spin at if it was to hit say 89c What do you mean they have an issue starting, do you mean spinning up or physically have a hard time staying spinning. What model is the gpu, it probably has a design that it does not start spinning the fans till it gets above say 45c.

What do you think?

A:NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200

It all depends on how you use your computer. If you are only using your computer for writing documents and browsing the internet, then the 5200 is a great card!

If you are wanting to play any of the newer 3D games, the 5200 is the bottom of the barrel. The lowest of the low. The scum on the bottom of shoes....

Check for overheating.

Also check that your psu is putting out enough power for your system.

If it`s a cheap generic psu. It won`t be capable of putting out anywhere near it`s rated output. Even a good quality psu will only achieve around 70% efficiency.

Look at this psu wattage calculator HERE

Im buying a Gtx 460 for my new setup and wanted to know how good it really is I looked at a later Nvidia GTX 295 and it had some higher stats than the GTX but its an older GPU, sorry for sounding like a beginner but I want to make the right choice.
I getting one with Just cause 2 and Crysis, I used systemlab can you run it to see If I could at the moment, I have a very old Nvidia Geforce 6800 which runs the games at minimum. Thanks.

GTX 460 is one of the best choices for mid-range graphics at the moment... a very good buy imo

if you have a little extra cash, you may want to look into the Radeon HD5850

Hello everyone, I recently added the Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT to my computer, it has 512mb of ram, the install went perfect, but whenever i play a game, in my case, world of warcraft. the monitor will turn black as if it wasnt picking up a display, after about 15 minutes into my game, sometimes shorter. the computer continues to run but nothing will show up on the screen, this is ONLY when i play games. never when browsing the net. Any help much appreciated. Oh may i add my computer is DUST FREE the psu is fine and the card runs at about 55C while gaming

Hello there, just to be sure.

What are your PSU specs? and this may sound silly, but have you connected the power cables on the Video Card?

Hey guys,

I got a new PC yesterday (well, for me it's new) but it has problem with the video card. Windows 10 isn't detecting the Display Driver, which is pretty bad because all my games are lagging because of this. When I start the computer, sometimes (not every time) Windows shows me an error saying "You must update your video BIOS for the NVIDIA GeForce GT 220". I know how to do it with nvflash, but the problem is I need a newer VBIOS with the same Subsystem ID (1462 1911) which I can't find anywhere. I found some in but they're older than mine. If anyone can give me a newer VBIOS version with the same system number or knows another solution, please reply. But I'm guessing I'll have to buy a new one.
