XFX GeForce 8200 AMD socket 940 memory

Q: XFX GeForce 8200 AMD socket 940 memory

I have tried to increase the amount of memory my computer has but am running into some issues. It says I can use 1066/800/667/533/400 for which there are 4 slots each of which have a led light next to them. They light up in either green for good or red for not so good. Anyway I have a total of 3 2gb memory cards (PC5400) but I always seem to get a red light on which ever one I put in the third slot.... I want to get the maximum usage out of my pc but would like to fix this problem. Any clues?

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.)

As XFX has a really annoying system for hiding whatever minimal amount of info they have for this board of yours, it is hard to give you too much help.

The general specs for the GF 8200 chipset allow for easily 6 GB of RAM. If I interpret your question correctly, you are having trouble with the 3rd slot only and not the others. If so, don't use the troublesome slot and use the 4th slot. If that doesn't work either, your board is probably starting to fail, but then again, your board is probably starting to fail. It may well be time to move away from an AM2+ board to an AM3 or AM3+. You may also have to change your CPU and/or RAM but then again you may well still be able to get a compatible board such as this:

Prices are not very high and will probably only be available for the next 6 months or so as all these boards have been phased out by their makers. This is the not-so-bad news. The good news is that you will be able to use all your other parts with them.

Is it possible to update graphics cards through driver software to support next minor revisions of software?

My GeForce 8200 supports OpenGL 3.2 (in desmume ds emulator) but does not support 3.3 (as required by dolphin gc and wii emulator).

OpenGL is apparantly a lot faster on AMD than DirectX 11 so that's why I want to use it with dolphin here, even though AMD processors aren't good for emulation compared to Intel, I'm too stubborn to upgrade this machine

So, with the GeForce 8200 (8-series) is possible to upgrade the driver to support v3.3 OpenGL? I don't want massive slowdown, especially as soon I am to do netplay on dolphin ~ does anyone else do emulation-related gaming on Vista here or not? I'd be happy to play some retro stuff
and don't troll about me using an emulator, I don't use dolphin for commercial games (yet) because I want to test out with opengl, only v3.0 has old opengl support and 3.5+ neeeds 3.3 opengl

A:NVIDIA GeForce 8200/OpenGL 3.3

I might be wrong but I don't think that has anything to do with drivers but what standard the card was designed for. That would equate to taking a directx 9 card and trying to make it work on 10 or 11.

So, I am having issues with my graphic card not displaying images through the HDMI to my TV. It worked before and all of a sudden it stopped working. The cable is good, I plugged other devices on it and it shows an image. The Nvidia Control Panel shows HDCP not capable.

Any tips to get it to work again?

I have an XFX GeForce 8200 based M/B running a Phenom X4 9550 (2.2Ghz) with 2 GB DDR2 800 RAM. I'm running Vista Ultimate.

A:Solved: Very low scores in 3dMark05 with GeForce 8200

Latest drivers from Nvidia...

But overall, it doesn't really matter as the 8200 isn't designed for playing games. The 8400 isn't either if that put things in prespective.

Even the 8600 has always been considered a weak card, especially at its original $200 price... today its $45~50.

I am getting a XFX GEFORCE 8200 motherboard for Chistmas. My question is will I be better off using the onboard video or my XFX GEFORCE 6800 video card?


A:Solved: Video question IE FXF GEFORCE 8200 MOBO

Even though the Geforce 6800 is an older card you'd get better gaming performance from it. If you don't play games then I'd stick with the onboard graphics for regular office/web work and video. That is as long as the 6800 is PCI-Express and not AGP.

Are you just getting the motherboard or other parts too because depending on what you have now it might not all be compatible.

is it possible to modify a tower to install a "compact" motherboard?
the motherboard is GeForce 8200 mGPU that i have laying around and i also have a spare Sharkoon AL4 tower. obviously the mother board will not fit but if i was to modify the screw holes, would this work?
i know it will fit right but really, if everything fits right and nothing is loose i shouldn't have a problem right?

The laptop only registers 128MB, so I think one of the sockets may be faulty.

I understand the maximum memory the tecra 8200 will address is 512MB, but can this be in a single Dimm, or must it be in 2x256?

Assuming that you have installed the FULL driver for the card from nvidias website and not just the windows update driver, the answer may lie in you BIOS settings.

I assume that you are on a 64 bit version of windows?

I can't point anything out specifically, but there may be settings in your BIOS WRT the video card that may limit the amount of ram is uses (AGP Aperture, etc). If you were to stick that card in to a computer with 32 bit windows you would have NOTHING left to run your OS/programs unless memory aprturing (or whatever it might be called in your BIOS) was enabled.

I used to have that a problem on my 3D Prophet DDR-DVI ( GeForce 256 DDR ). It was a 32mb card & sometimes at bootup it would report 16mb. I never had performance problems because of that though. On the GeForce FAQ, I remember them saying it was because of defect memory chips.

Here's the advice they gave :

Q. I (occasionally or always) get less than 32MB of video RAM reported when I first switch on my PC. What's up?
Try slightly changing your FSB speed.

Make sure that you are using a powerful enough power supply. See the 'How powerful should my power supply be in order to use the GeForce? question for more information.

You can find a link for a BIOS that may fix this problem for the Creative Annihilator Pro in the 'Are there any newer Video BIOS upgrades for the Annihilator?' question.

You may want to replace the card even if this does help: this problem may also be a bad solder joint on one of the memory chips that causes problems occasionally or all the time.Click to expand...

Hi Folks,
My PC is built on an Asus P5N32-E Sli Plus mother board, Intel quad Q6700 @ 2.66GHz processor and an NVidia Geforce 8800 GTX 768MB graphics card, running Win7.

Photography is my hobby and I have recently been adding some simple 3D text on top of a few photos. The problem I?m having is that Photoshop crashes if I try to go above three words of text.
It reports that there is not enough memory on the graphic card. As my mother board will take two graphic cards, I?m thinking of putting another of the same in.

So would the whole of the combined 1536MB of memory be available to Photoshop and cure the problem?

Any advice would be appreciated

I bought an old Dell Optiplex 380 system refurbished from Dell for about $80 with an E7500 Intel core 2 duo processor and upgraded it to a Xeon E5430 for about $20. The cpu benchmark went from about 1800 to 4000. The Dell Optiplex 380 uses DDR3 memory, so the Xeon gets an additional boost there. I also downloaded a modded Dell bios that supports the Xeon functions on the 775 motherboard at bios-mods forums for free. Great little computer to play older games in Windows 7. Next I will be updating this system to Windows 10. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium OEM installed by Dell.

So for little cost you can play around with older hardware and make it do things it wasn't originally designed for.

Hi people

I have a Geforce 7300 Le video card with memory i think 512 mb , in Windows xp it read the memory size correctly , on win 7 i got all confused as it reads only 256

I copied info from nvidia control panel

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20GHz (2194 MHz)
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit
DirectX version: 11.0
GPU processor: GeForce 7300 LE
Driver version: 191.07
Core clock: 450 MHz
Memory clock: 648 MHz (1296 MHz data rate)
Memory interface: 64-bit
Total available graphics memory: 1023 MB
Dedicated video memory: 256 MB
System video memory: 0 MB
Shared system memory: 767 MB
Video BIOS version:
IRQ: 16
Bus: PCI Express x16

Now how come the total memory is 1023 and 256 is only dedicated , i searched bios for any editable options for Video card but found nothing.

How can I edit dedicated video memory, as it affects Games performances Huge GTAiv is running so slooooooowly with screen glitches.

Thanks in advance.

A:Geforce 7300 dedicated video memory

makamiko, welcome to the forums.

How can I edit dedicated video memory

Short and simple answer is you can't as dedicated memory on a video card is actual physical memory. The only way it is possible to alter this is if your video card uses what Nvidia calls TurboCache which takes system memory and uses it as extra video memory; great in theory, but unless you have 2 GB or more of system memory it will cause additional slowdowns.

As for what most of those numbers you posted mean this should help explain it,

Video Memory Virtualization - A Brief Guide

GTAiv is running so slooooooowly with screen glitches.

One reason for that is from the system requirements for that game,

Grand Theft Auto IV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

your 7300 LE doesn't make the grade as far as the minimum requirements go. Unfortunately for the most part if you want to game you're going to need a new video card.

Why it says 1 gig in system info I don't know? It might be its actually using the Intel graphics when you opened it. It's switchable graphics. Unless you forced it to use the NVidia GPU it may be using the Intel? You would think it would say Intel at the top though?

I'm new to this forum so very grateful for any help...

I'm trying to wire up a Cat5e to Cat5e wall socket extension and I'm a little confused...

I need to connect a machine in room A to a router in room B. Presently I have a very long Cat5e cable to do this. I've just run a length of Cable through the wall, with a view to terminating both ends with Cat 5e panels (to alleviate the need for a really long cable trailing across the floor).

However, I'm unsure as to how I wire up the insides of the panels. Should I wire them up straight through or crossed-over?

Thanks indeed for any help!


A:Cat5e Socket to Socket extension

Straight through. Plus you need to either wire it up under the 568A or 568B standard. Just pick one and wire up both ends the same way and you'll be fine.

are there any major differences? is the 754 more unstable compared to the 939?

cos im always gettings performance issues with games on my pc (ive got a 754 amd athlon 64 3400+) i dont know whether it could be the cpu or something else?

is there much point in upgrading my cpu to 939?

thanks a lot.

A:socket 754 compared to socket 939

I don't think it is that simple really.

As far as "stability" goes, 754 and 939 are probably not all that different. What is more important is the chipset on your motherboard, ram/motherboard compatibility etc.

The main advantage of 939 is that the newer AMD processors are made ONLY for that socket type.

You ask if there is a point in upgrading your cpu to 939. You would have to upgrade your motherboard first to be able to accept a 939 cpu. I appologize if that is information you already know, it just didn't sound like it in the wording of your question.

Now, as for your performance issues, if you want we can take a look and try and find the cause. I'd recommend starting a new thread and list your complete system specs with as much detail as possible, also detailing the problems you are having.

A:Dell 8200 RAM Help

According to this the memory you need is PC800 (non-ECC).

The memory you got - KINGSTON RDRAM # KTD-DM800E/1024 ECC.

You got ECC memory, you need non-ECC. Some motherboards will work OK with either one, but probably not in this case.

Edit: However this is what I found at Crucial: Your system supports ECC. You can put non-ECC modules into an ECC system, but be sure not to mix ECC and non-ECC modules within a system. Install the same type of modules that are already in your system.

So it just might be that you can't mix ECC and non-ECC.

The reason why you cannot find your machine is because you?re searching in the wrong section.
Your machine is a little bit older and doesn?t belongs to the new generation of toshiba notebooks. To find the drivers and the BIOS update, you will have to choose Archive in the Drivers Download section.

Here?s some short description to find your machine in the drivers section:

Go to the Drivers Download section and choose:
"Product type" -> Archive
"Family" -> Tecra-Archive
"Product series" -> Tecra 8xxx
"Model" -> Tecra 8200
"Short model number" -> PT820E

Afterwards choose the operating system where you need drivers. The BIOS update is included in the driver list.

Hey guys, how accurate is this:

They rate the 5200 card higher , then the 5500 card. Now obvious in terms of memory, the geforce 5500 wins, 256MB. But i was just curious on what you guys thought.

A:Geforce 5500 256MB vs Geforce 5200 128

The only other good one was the 5600. (hard to find)

Which of those two card's would be better for very light gaming (Some 04 and 05 Sports Games) and other than that just regular XP use? My old FX 5200 was a 128mb card with a 200mhz clock speed and the new 6100 has 425mhz clock speed. Any Help?

A:Integrated Geforce 6100 or old Geforce FX 5200

If you have lots of system RAM, then the 6100 is probably the best choice. You'd probably need at least a gig of RAM though.

If you only have 256, or 512, the 5200 might be the better choice. Best idea is to test your games with both setups, and see which plays better.

I have a GeForce Ti 4600 and the fan died on it. I didn't notice it started locking up and giving me some crazy video problems. I replaced the fan, but I'm pretty sure the heat before did some permanent damage.

I'm looking for something that is at least comparable to the 4600 and was looking at the FX 5500. How does this compare?

A:GeForce FX 5500 upgrade from GeForce Ti 4600??

The 4600 is a better performer. The 5500 is just a warmed over 5200. You'd get better performance from a 5700 or 5700LE.

i baught a new graphics card which is the GeForce 6600 256 MB of DDR ram it i put a 350w power supply in my pc to accomidate the card. how ever when i put the card in plug everything in and turn on my PC i get no imput from the card to my monitor...i was told my MB is for 4x and the card is 8x but everywhere ive read states you can use a 8x on the 4x MB just will decrease performance a tad bit.. how do i get the card to work on the 4x i cant seem to get it to give me an imput to my monitor


A:Upgraded from Geforce 4 MX to a Geforce 6600 256MB

sounds like a defective video card. try putting your old video card back in.

if it works. i would return the new card for a replacement.

Hi, Im thinking about buying a new graphic card and found a card i liked named ASUS GeForce 9400 GT. On the website where they sell it its located under the tab Nvidia, yet if I check out Nvidias prducts page their 9400 GT looks completely different from this one. Then I check out ASUS page and there I find it. So what's the difference between ASUS and Nvidia, why do their cards have the same name, and why does the website im buying it from put the ASUS card under Nvidia products????

A:Difference between ASUS GeForce and Nvidia GeForce???

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.

Is there a difference? I just bought a GeForce FX 5200 and installed it... the requirements I'm looking for are ATI Radeon 8500 or GeForce 3 or 4 MX. Did I get something equivalent or is the one I have not good enough?

Please help...

Looking at these cards there is a bit of a price difference, the MSI is ?479 and the ASUS is ?299.
The MSI does have better specifications than the ASUS so in performance I would go with the MSI. Although for value for money the ASUS is very good! So if I was just going for performance I would choose the MSI but if I wanted value for money then the ASUS is the one I would go for!

Well, I'm looking at upgrading again, and in the interest of finances, I'm upgrading the video and keeping the rest of the system the same. I'm currently running an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe w/ Athlon XP 3200+ w/ 1GB of PC3200 ram. I'm looking at replacing my BFG GeForce 5700 Ultra with something a bit more modern and keeping the price low. I've found a 6600 (may be and LE version). The GPU and memory clocks are lower and the pixels/sec isn't as high, but the 6600 has support for Shader 3.0 and has the ability to process MPEG2 video on card which will help watching DVD's and with my TV card also. Plus there's the support for processing HD Video. I'm just looking for people's opinion on whether this is a good upgrade or not before jumping in. Fell free to say whatever. Thanks!

Grab that XFX GeForce 6600GT DDR3 128mB AGP? very good video card for most today games, especially FEAR, DOOM3 and Counter-Strike:Sources in high setting (not the maximum <unless you Overclock it and watercooled it ^^>)

I have an external hp cd writer 8200 that used to work just fine. I had a problem and had to restore everything on my system. Everything else works, but when I try to install my cd writer, it says that the driver can not be found. I have the original floppy disk with the driver on it, but device manager still cannot find it. I also tried getting the most recent driver from, but no luck. Any ideas?

A:Problem with HP cd writer 8200 driver

is the driver from hp on a floppy? if you are trying to install the driver in plug n'play sometimes it won't find the file and you have to find it yourself. If you have the hp driver just click cancell when prompted by plug n'play to install drivers and when you get to windows just execute the install file on the disk and it should install everything right.

Okay this is probably a stupid question but I have a Tecra 8200 .
Do I have to buy something else for the wireless connection to work?

A:Tecra 8200 wireless question


This question is not stupid ;) because the Tecra 8200 was equipped optional with the internal minPCI WLan card. This could be a little bit confusing.
So in some Tecra 8200 units the WLan is already included and in some Tecra?s the minPCI WLan card must be installed firstly to use the WLan technology.

You should check your device manager if an WLan module is listed in ?Network adepter?
If it?s already listed then you don?t need an additional WLan card.
If it?s not listed, then you will have to upgrade the machine with the minPCI WLan card or with a USB WLan stick.

As far as I know the PA3070U-1MPC Wireless LAN mini-PCI card coudl be compatible with your notebook.
