GeForce FX 5700 le Install Problems

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.nvidia (More info?)

Hi
I am having problems installing my ne Graphics card and would be greatfull
for any help.

I have a system based on an Abit KG7 Raid with 256m ram (to be upgraded)
with an AST Vision 7L monitor (old but has worked briliantly over the years)
WinXP Home

The system runs perfectly well at the moment with an SiS315P -64 card

When I install the Geforce FX5700 the system identifies the card and
attempts to install it. the manual with the card says allow Windows to
install the default VGA drivers. This does not happen on my ssystem - it
searches and offers a list of nVidia cards to install or attempts to connect
to the net and downloads a 15mb file for an nVidia N32? (this takes a while
Im on slow band here) after 'installing' the screen goes black and nothing
happens. - if i restart the machine it looses the instalation and eithr
sarts all over or accepts it has a card in it and thats it.

All the while (right from switching on) the screen is fuzzy and all text is
verry blurred.

When you look at the hardware profiles the screen does not appear and
windows does not offer screen drivers for you to install.

If I take the card out and plug the SiS back in - every thing is fine
including the screen drivers being pressent.

Help - driving me up the wall - was hoping to keep this machine running a
bit longer - even if only while I save up for the next - but cant even play
splinter cell on the SiS.

Any help or pointers in the right direction appreciated.
Please remember that altough I built this system - it was more by luck than
judgement.

    Try installing a stock VGA driver ( Standard PCI VGA adapter though yer
    card is actually AGP ), when it asks to search for the driver, select
    manually update driver and switch to stock VGA drivers.

    Then reboot and install the nVidia drivers.

    Hello Dave,
    Have a look at my thread "From Sis315 to GeForce FX5600 XT disaster" over
    the past few days.
    I have similar issues and have some interesting replies and ideas to work
    with.

    Sharanga
    Sorry for taking so long to respond - been away

    The problem is that this 'standard VGA' adaptor does not apear in the list
    of offered devices.

    I have gone to install manualy and told it I do not have a disk etc, so
    choose from a list - and all that are listed are NVidia Cards - Despite the
    blurry ness of the screen I have managed to define the list and include it
    here for information.

    Can I install one of these as the standard VGA driver?

    If not any clues what to do now - this is realy starting to bug me. I am
    also guesing I will not get the chance to install Screen Drivers for my AST
    Vision7L until the Graphics card is set up properly.

    Is there anyway to set up this as some sort of Hardware profile before I
    take out my current card and activate it when I install the new? I am lost
    here what to do.

    Any help greatfully recieved

    Ok - Update

    Inastalled card - through extreme fuzzyness I installed it and even got to
    install the supplied NVidia software on the dik - all going ok

    Once Nvidia software had finished installing screen went black - after a
    while disk spun down - system dead

    Re-booted machine - started ok - saw the WinXP Home splash screen - then
    BLack - NOthing Nada. Waited several minutes incase some final install hings
    were happening - nothing

    rebooted in safe more - same fuzzy screen

    Any clues - I am going mad with this.

    Thanks

    I had the exact same problem with my KG7 Raid and recently purchased
    Geforce FX5700. What I had to do is set my AGP speed in the bios to 2x
    instead of 4x. It runs flawlessly at 2x. However, I'd love to be able
    to run it at 4x. I haven't found a way to get it to work yet, though.
    :(

    the diff. between 2x and 4x is indiscernible anyway!!
