Im planning to buy a 9800gt, but the problem is i got this motherboard with an integrated graphics "hd3200"
So my plan is ill just disable the onboard videocard then just install the southbridge driver of my mobo without the catalyst and display driver and use the 9800gt. Will it work or will i have issues running it?????????
After installing a 9800gt on this board and disabling the onboard video, I lose video signal. When windows gets to the desktop, the screen turns black and says "no signal detected". It continues on to the windows desktop. I have the exact same version of the driver installed in linux and my card works flawlessly. Any ideas on getting this straightened out?
It says windows has to restart to finish the installation when this happens. I get nothing out of my 9800gt OR my integrated video (when I re-enable it)
I've tried the newest and some older drivers and I get the same problem.
Disable your integrated gfx in your control panel, and make sure the display settings & Nvidia control panel has your GPU as your main output for the monitor.
The problem is, I can't even get to the control panel. I install the driver, and after it tells me to restart, I get no output when my monitor is plugged into my 9800GT. I tried restarting with the integrated video back on to uninstall the drivers and try again, and I don't get any output either.
So the problem is only when you boot into Windows XP?
Seems like a software issue in that case. Hmm...
Yeah. This setup was working perfectly with my old motherboard though. All the same hardware...

There is a software issue; well it's not an issue it's just a display settings problem; when a graphics driver (only for Windows XP 32-bit) is freshly installed (w/ reboot required), the driver automatically sets the display resolution and refresh rate to the lowest setting allowed on the VGA card (NOT THE MONITOR), my screen, even if it can't display the settings, give's me the settings, which are:
640 x 480 x 4bit @ 30Hz=Horizontal/34Hz=Vertical
These are settings that can only be display by old CRT screens, but the VGA Card (9800GT) and driver still include support for it. This problem can only be solved by:
1. Plugging in an old CRT screen supporting these settings (only CRT screen can support Asynchronous Horizontal and Vertical refresh rates).
2. Change the resolution to 800 x 600 x 32bit @ 60Hz (universal resolution supported by all LCD or recent monitors).
3. Plug-in your regular monitor and change the settings to the desired setting.
My friend successfully did this once (then he switched mobos), but unfortunately for me, he threw out his old monitor or I would have borrowed it
