did it come with an install disk? if so use it/ and downloading the latest drivers might be needed as well
yeah... look ^^^ at the title. i have an Nvidia 7900 gto that I JUST got today. so i put it in... i realized i was gonna need a WAY better PSU, so i go from a 300 watt crappt psu to a good modular 600 watt psu with those cords u can take out. basicly i KNOW its NOT the video card thats broke. # 1,... i saw on BOTH WIN VISTA AND WIN XP MCE that it works fine. # 2 if i play around with the bios i WILL get it to work and boot with the display manager and stuff on PCI-E selection. on PCI-E when i go to ANY vidoe game it will freeze the whole pc down. WHEN i go to PCI selection i will be able to play the game for like 30 sec, then the pc willl freeze. on onboard gpu selection it wont even work saying i need a vga compatible.... bla bla bla. well basicly i HAD a radeon x300 se witch SUX. with that gpu i could ACTULY RUN GAMES IN ONBOARD MODE. i dont get it... i THINK its either my motherboard or bios. i have feonix version something(its an HP media center). so WHY WOULD MY PC WORK PCI-E on a radeon but NOT and nvidia? well thats not the sollution att all.
i need to know if i can update my bios to make it work (and how) or will i need to buy a new motherboard(and how much will it cost, will it EVEN work) or am i COMPLETELY WRONG and i need to do something else
just so you know i have an hp media center upgraded with:
a 600 watt modular PSU
AMD x2 4800
1.73 gig of RAM
1 (250 gig,[one 160 gig hdd] 250 has xp MCE, 160 got vista)
yup... thats it thx for ur help!!!!
