Preferred Solution: MSI Geforce 4 MX 420 Series

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 don't have any direct answers, but I would like to suggest that you run dxdiag.exe thru 'start'>'run' (just type dxdiag.exe in the box) & also download "Fresh Diagnose" from for a program that will give you LOTS of info about your system & the components installed. :grinthumb

Once you determine what you have: go to the mfgs. websites & check for patches, fixes & updates for the specific programs/components you have.

HTH, (hope this helps)

Right, I had been debating with myself whether or not I'm going to get one of these monsters, when I discovered that I'll need to upgrade my power supply. Having asked around a bit, I was told I'd be wanting in upwards of 650W, which sounds like an awful lot. I don't want to have matched the cost of my new graphics card in electricity bills within the year, afterall.

But imagine my suprise when I read in a review that the GTS version (which I was considering) only requires 400W, while the GTX requires 450. Can anyone sort this out for me once and for all? What are the actual power requirements?

A:GeForce 8 series

It depends a lot on the amps on the 12V rail.

Appearing at
As far as power requirements go, the GeForce 8800GTS will require a minimum 400 watt power supply (with 12V current rating of 26A). The GeForce 8800GTX will require a minimum 450 watt power supply (with 12V current rating of 30A) and you can double those numbers when you start talking about SLI.Click to expand...

Personally, I'd use at least a 500 or 550 watt power supply for the 8800GTS and GTX, respectively; but you may be able to get away with what the article says. It also depends on hard drives, etc. With graphics monsters like that, too, I'd use only power supplies from a select few vendors, such as Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, SeaSonic, Antec, Enermax, or FSP. That's about all I can think of for now.

so my 7800 gt is dying on me and i think it's time for a new vid card. I was thinking about a 9600 gt i believe is the name and my friend told me i should not get that. he said i should proly try to ge an 8800 gts or the 9800 gtx. i'm not sure which one would be the better way to go. are they both similar in performance or do you guys think i shoudl bite the bullet and get the 9800.

A:geforce 9 or 8 series

From the reviews I have seen lately(PC magazine),the 9800 is the
best performing card ever made.
Relevancy 58.48%

does anyone have any info on these cards, i would like to see the 8800GTS drop to at lest 200 when the GeForce 9 Series come out this November. price for the GeForce 9800 GTX will be 549-649 USD. price for the GeForce 9800 GTS will be 399-449 USD. i would like to know more about these cards

A:GeForce 9 Series

Nobody knows for sure but it's probably not the 9000 series. It looks like it's going to be the 8700GT and 8700GTS. Good cards (exactly what I need) but they will be between the 8600GTS and 8800GTS 320.

I feel like there is some truth to this since nVidia doesnt really need a major refresh like AMD does.

Is it really worth buying the 9600 video cards, or should I just wait to buy the 10 series video cards whenever they may come out. I am not in a rush to buy one, I dont really have much to do with it.

What else can i do besides play games with an extreme video card? 3ds max, or video codding, I use [email protected] to contribute my idle cpu, is there a way to contribute idle video card usage?

I have a hans-G 19" and will buy a Samsung 19" soon for dual screen.

I have a 7900GTO which has dual dvi ports
I am heading in UWaterloo to do computer sciences, anything that you recommend i begin in study or practice? And that may give a reason to buy a powerful pc?

A:geforce 9600 or the 10 series?

I take it that you don't play GFX demanding computer games.. :P (a 7900GTO is a pretty weak contender isn't it? Or are my standards way too high?).

To answer your question, wait till the 9800 series comes out. Compared to the 9600GT (as beautiful as it is), is going to be blown away by the 9800, like the 8600GT is completely obliterated by the 8800GT.

I'm no expert, but having a rather powerful computer does have its advantages, in the long term (and perhaps in computer science). I'd keep money on the processor and memory for now, if games aren't the necessity right now. But if you do find out whats best, tell me as I'm also planning to go into computer science in uni (2 more years!!)

Hello people of the internets,

I'm looking to add some newer parts to my PC soon, such as a new MoBo (Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3), CPU (AMD FX-8350), Case (NZXT Phantom 410) and PSU (SeaSonic S12II). In addition, I'm on the fence about a new GPU. The new Kepler cards seem quite fast, but I want to know if configuring my current card (EVGA GTX 560 DS SSC) in an SLI configuration would be worth it or should I still stick with it until the later Keplers (700 series).

For further info, see my current system spec. And this PC is used for everything from word processing to gaming.

I've got a nVidia FX 5200 card right now. I discovered this $50 GeForce 7300 card on newegg.

Would this run newer games like FEAR and Oblivion on my PC better than my FX 5200? I'm kind of skeptical beause of the price and its SO much cheaper than the other 7 series cards.

A:Which GeForce 8 series card should I get? And a Cheap, Reliable PSU to Go with It?

If you're going for quality, and you aren't willing to splurge on the 8800 Series, then don't push for Max settings. Hardly any of us can max on FEAR. Maybe 3% of us. You are running 1024x768 on a screen the size of a Cap'n Crunch box, instead of a higher resolution on a loverly 52" plasma, so you might just be able to, but don't worry if you aren't.

Not to mention you're running an HP (Hardly Passable) setup. Frankly I don't see why you would upgrade on that, but if you really want to, you can.

The 8600 Series, all of them, have only one advantage over the cheaper 7900s: the ability to run DX10. And if that's why you're raving about the 8-Series, don't bother. The quality of the DX10 they run just isn't worth the money right now. It's like varnishing a bamboo stool, really.

For my money, as little of it as there is, this is the setup you want:
nVidia 7900GT
Apevia 520W (ATX Form Factor)

I have looked through the web searching for solutions for my horrible graphic card driver for quite a while now. The problems with it is when I start up my PC, my screen will turn black and then function. But it will keep again and again until my computer enters BSOD . Some suggested that you turn up the amount of electricity going to your graphic card, back date it, and much more too. I tried quite a few pf them already but sadly I couldn't do it or it just doesn't work. Currently, my Nvidia's version is I would like a solution that's really simple but at the same time able to solve this problem. Thanks!

A:Geting a new video card GeForce 7600 series,,,,,

When you use a top quality video graphics card, it is wise to improve your cooling system, any move up to 450 watt power supply, or more, and be sure you have more than adequate amounts of memory.
Most of the time, a 300 watt power supply will work fine, but when it fails, it can ruin the video graphics card and other components.

Nvidia Corp.?s latest beta drivers include support of what can possibly the company?s next-generation graphics processing units (GPUs) made using 28nm process technology. The actual chips are projected to officially emerge next year, but Nvidia may easily be tailoring its software for the new hardware.

The latest unreleased Nvidia ForceWare 285-series drivers contain mentioning of GeForce 610M and GeForce GT 630M graphics adapters for notebooks, according to a news-story by VR-Zone web-site. It is believed that the new GPUs belong to GK100-series chips that are based on the code-named Kepler micro-architecture.

Nvidia said earlier this year that it plans to test-drive its next-generation Kepler graphics processing unit (GPU) this year and introduce the new chips commercially in 2012.

It depends on which maker, really. But in general, the 6800 is the best of the three listed, followed by the 6600GT, then the 9800XT.

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.

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

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!

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!

A:GTX 200 Series vs ATI 4000 Series...

If you want 8800GT's, the prices have dropped to about $150 average on newegg which is great considering i got mine for $250. Personally, I'm against SLI, but if you're for it and would have to make a purchase now, go with 2 8800GTS g92 as they're averaging about <$200 (MSI's 8800GTS is on newegg for $177) and they provide some performance over the 8800GT. Since the 9800GTX is basically the same performance as the 8800GTS but more expensive, then forget that.

If you can wait a while to make a purchase, I've heard that the newer 9800GTX+ will have higher stock clocks that will deliver better performance with its newer drivers too, and this card comes out in mid-July. It's supposed to be priced around $230 and it's chip is built on 55nm process. This card sounds attractive, but we'll have to wait for solid reviews of the card first.

Yes it can play farcry, HL2 etc,..... but it will all depend on the other specs of your computer. Tempted to say you should save your money a bit longer until you can at least go to the 6600gt if it is the newer games you are wanting to play.

I recently bought a PCI (no e) graphics card the fx 5500, desiring a third monitor. I was told that i did not need SLI or Xfire as i did not intend to use both cards for games, i just wish for more display space while programming.

Unfortunately, the FX5500 only works whilst the gtx260 is unplugged from the power, otherwise the system with the displays connected to the gtx260 with some basic driver, even if the gtx260 is disabled and the fx5500 is working properly.

If both the cards are 'installed' in device manager at any one time, the last one to be installed will say that it has problems error code 43.

Any advice on how to get a third monitor up?


A:Mixing it up Geforce GTX 260 and a Geforce FX 5500

Either get an ATI card or if it has to be Nvidia, something from the 6200 and up. The problem is that while your are attempting to use 2 Nvidia cards they are using different drivers.

The FX 5xxx series doesn't have a Windows 7 driver (WDDM 1.1) and has to rely on the last Vista driver (a beta WDDM 1.0), and it basically cancels out the driver for the 260. The only way to use 2 non WDDM 1.1 cards is if they are a different manufacturer; ATI-Nvidia, Nvidia-ATI, etc. Same thing will happen with ATI cards if you try and run anything from the X19xx series and down with anything from the HD 2xxx and up.

The fx 5600 isn't a very good card and it won't be very future-proof...

Do you plan to keep the card for a long time, or upgrade in 6 months (or so)? And do you plan to play a lot of games which will be released during 2004, or mostly older games?

All of this will help determine what cards might be best suited to your needs...

A:Will the 9 series cards make the 8 series cards cheaper?

eventually, and then the 10 series will do the same to the 9 series, rinse and repeat. basically as long as its one of the fastest cards the gts will be expensive, when it becomes obsolete (relatively) its price will drop.

from the question i assume you are looking to upgrade, if you want to only spend $100 then i'd say your best bet is an OCed 7600 GT, lotsa bang for your buck, i can run FEAR with pretty high settings with just one of them.

But with my laptop with an N series network adapter the signal disconnected every 20 seconds then reconnected; this was only a problem using it at home – everywhere else it connected well. I solved this by using a G series PCMCIA when at home. So far so good.

Now my wife has been given a work laptop which has the same problem. She can’t use a PCMCIA because the laptop has been set to stop her installing the software. So… should we get an N series router? Is there any reason it wouldn’t let us both work PCMCIA-free? And if we should go ahead, any advice on what specs I should get or avoid?

Which card is better? GTX 260 or 9800 GTX+.

I'm going to be using Dual-SLI with these cards. So I will be buying two.

I want to be able to play high if possible.

I know the 9800 GTX+ can do Tri-SLI, which would make it better if I choose to Upgrade, but if the GTX 260 can out perform the 9800 GTX+ in Dual then I will go with that.

If anybody knows the comparison of these 2 cards, I would appreciate your comment.

A:GeForce 9800GTX+ vs GeForce GTX 260

Just to clear some things up. In which I know you didnt do purposely or may not know. SLI= two nvidia based cards...dual sli would be 4 cards. As I see it or normally reffered to quad SLI "Aghhem, anyway on to your question. The 260 reminds me of the old 8800 gts vs gtx/ultra situation. When the 8800 gts was "sli'd," it would perform better than the 8800 gtx in some benchmarks. With that being said, get two 260's for sli. Go to town, have fun.

I am using a 3dfuzion Geforce 5500 256MB PCI card and i was looking at this card:

And i wanted to know , for those who knows, or might know, should i get rid of my 5500 for the 6200?

The 5500 card is very good btw, better then i thought. I was just curious about the 6200 and is it worth it.

A:BGF Geforce 6200 256MB Vs Geforce 5500 256MB PCI?

Well both are hardcore outdated cards. But the GeForce 6200 is better. Direct comparison.

But both cards are old and not good so stay with your current card.

Hey, Im new to building pc's. I am currently building a pc which will have a athlon 64fx57 cpu and an asus a8n32 motherboard. I am going to do sli so I was wondering what video cards to get. Also, any recomendations would be welcomed gladly. Thanks a lot.

A:GeForce 7800gtx 512mb or GeForce 7800gtx 256mb

welcome to Techspot.

I heard the A8N32 arent so good at handling two video cards running in X16 SLI
I cant find the thread where someone posted the reasons why. might wanna google around first and read some reviews of the chosen motherboard.

also it might be better value to run two 7800GTs on SLI isntead of two GTX's on sli as the performance increase going from on GTX to two isnt prolly much

A:Can I replace a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series power board with a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series power board?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.
I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

I replaced my motherboard (lol...thanks guys for your help) and now i have a different video card.

i used to have a

GeForce 4 MX420 64 MB of SDRAM overclocked at 285 core and 404 memory

and a Celeron 2.0 Ghz with 384 MB of PC2100 RAM

and it got 3DMark2001 SE 330 score of



now i have a

GeForce 2 GTS Pro 64MB of DRR RAM with a Core of 235 and memory of 458

on a Pentium 4 1.8 Ghz with 512 MB of RAM (133 mhz speed)

FSB is also faster on this new motherboard

and i only get a score of


why is that?

is the GeForce 2 GTS Pro a slower card than the GeForce 4 MX420?

What is the difference between a geforce 9800 and geforce 9800 LE

A:Difference between a geforce 9800 and geforce 9800 LE?

The 9800 is a 256bit buswidth, and the LE version is only 128bits. Plain and simple, the LE version is crap.

By the way, if you are considering playing games, the 9800 pro version would be a huge step up over BOTH those cards.

Hope someone can offer some insight. I see where many, if not all the brands, Asus, MSI, etc. have guys asking for vBIOS updates in various forums to solve problems with display. What is the general incompatibility issue? Any light that can be shed is appreciated

It depends on what you are referring to, there is not real issues with the R series GPU's in terms of display output. Most of the associated problems people are having involve a few things:

Some of the 4k monitors (The AOC for instance) use a very odd way to refresh which caused the display to flicker on the R9 series GPU's which was resolved in a recent patch.

Some high refresh displays using DP

and some others

However I would not worry, most of the problems if any are fixed via patches and catalyst revisions. If the manufacturer has to update something like the this its normally involves something like with their own software or certain things in environments not working together properly. I would not worry, I have done nothing to my PowerColor R9 290X trio and they all work great.

Hey everyone. I currently have a GTX 580 and I want to upgrade that. I was going to get a GTX 770 but I'm now considering waiting for the GTX 800 series. Is it worth waiting for the 800's and when do you think it will be released?

A:GTX 800 series?

Well supposedly it's coming next year, but since crystal balls don't exist who knows exactly when, maybe in Q1 maybe not, maybe way longer,or if they'll be delayed even further, or how good they'll really be, or if they'll have bugs, or how much they'll cost. If anyone really knows at this point they are not likely allowed to disclose details beyond what I'm sure you've searched on Google otherwise they'd lose their job; and even what may be known now may change as changes and delays happen all the time.

In the end, it's up to you, if you need a new or better card now, buy now, if you want to wait there will always be another generation or series in the works, if the wait is confirmed to be short then sometimes waiting a bit is not a big deal, when the wait is longer waiting may not make sense.

I've had my P50 for a while now, and I keep coming back to the Lenovo website from time to time, looking at various accessories that I think I'd like to pick up.  However, Lenovo still doesn't list the P-Series in their drop-down menues when trying to tell them which machine you have. Are we supposed to just tell them we have W-Series, and hope we're not asking for a Docking Station, that won't be compatible between the P and W series systems? Does anyone else find it odd, that Lenovo is "hiding" things about the P-Series laptops? Thanks for the input!

I know.......another question about which gfx card...blah blah blah.....
Sorry guys, but I just have to ask...
I have my eye on a 'Gainward GeForce 4 PowerPack Ultra 750 128mb 8x xp Golden Sample TI-4800SE' which I can get reasonably cheap £88 (UK)
Is this a good choice (am currently using a GF3 Ti200 64MB) or should I look to a mid range GF FX 5 series, or even a Radeon in the same sort of price range.........trying to get the best for as little as possible, shortage of cash...
I like to play UT2003/C&C General/Mohaa + Spearhead and a few others.

If it currently has Windows XP SP2 installed, you need to install the SP3 upgrade before you do a custom scan at Windows Update/Microsoft Update.

A custom scan will probably display over 100 post-SP3 high priority updates.

The process was going fine until the actual installation started. I waited about an hour or two for it to complete, but it didn't. I started a new installation and went out for like 4 hours, came home, and it still hadn't installed. Am I doing something wrong?  Thank you.

Hey all,

I've currently got a second-hand 7950GT which had a voltage inductor break off, meaning I'm going to have to restructure the fans [they will no longer work on the card itself]. This came at a time where I've been overclocking, trying to decrease temperatures, etc.

I'm wondering if, for performance in DX9 games, two 256MB LeadTek 7950GTs in SLi would beat a single 8800GT / 8800GTS / 8800GTX?

I don't have Vista and I don't play DX10 games...yet. For the time being, would paying for a 7950GT at half the price of an 8800GTX and running the two cards in SLi give me a performance advantage?

I could then wait until prices fall on a 8800GTX.

hi everyone i have this all in one printer hp c4200 series ok
what happen is that the 75 tri color cartridge have damage and it appear a msg
cartridge is missing or not detected and what i want to know is theres a way to remove the msg from the printer?? so i can use the black 74 cartridge

the msg does't let me press any button from the printer

A:Help hp C4200 series???

Which model number in this list is your all-in-one printer?


The printer will not work with only the black 74 cartridge installed. The tri-color 75 cartridge has to be there also.

A cartridge doesn't get damaged while it's inside a printer. It can only get damaged by improperly handling it while unpackaging it and installing it.

If the tri-color 75 cartridge is damaged, then you need to replace it.
