I have Acer Aspire T180 AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ / 2.4 GHz 4GB Ram NVIDIA GeForce 6100 (integrated) 160.0 GB DVD±RW (+R DL) Install of windows 7 failing because video seems not sufficient Anyone know of a suitable basic PCI graphics card that will do - don't want to spend much and don't need it posh
Not for gaming just to get Windows 7 on for surfing and basics like MS Office. Been using XP SP2 all this time and after had a problem from SP3 install. Reinstalled XP but decided I would like to use son's Windows 7 disk to install on it.
Well since you don't really need dx11 etc. then a cheap 210 should suffice for basic applications
OK so I found a very cheap solution. I robbed out the r9250 128 m 64-bit pci video card from a DELL Dimension 2400. Installed, downloaded the driver and so far so good. The Windows 7 installation does not mess up the screen any more. I know it is not fancy and I expect that the quality within windows 7 will not be very good but at least I will be able to install it now. Thank you every one.
Have fun mate
