Nvidia GeForce 7950 GX2 Problems

I'm using a 7950 GX2 on a Dell Optiplex Gx 280 motherboard and case, with 2 CORSAIR 2GB memory cards with the latest 190.62 drivers from Nvidia. Can anyone help?

  1. Guys. I have a problem. Help?

    No seriously, tell us what the problem is.
  2. I thought that my post was missing something!
    There is no Nvidia control panel, and when I try to change the screen resolution the system reboots.
  3. You can try removing *all* nVidia video-related software using Control Panel, and then re-install the new driver package.
  4. Yeah, nVidia isn't exactly supporting the 7950GX2 anymore so newer drivers tend to give it more bugs than they fix. Use drive cleaner to remove any traces of your current driver and try using an older driver version that you know works.
  5. Unfortunately, this is a new card, on a new motherboard and power supply. I've never used an Optiplex or a GX2 before, so this is new to me.
    These cards seem to be a real pain to install on a system, and it doesn't help that this computer didn't come with any drivers.
    Also, the is there any way to tell if a graphics card is working? The system seems to be detecting it.
  6. By the way, here are detailed specs for my system:
    CPU: Intel Pentium 4 3.20 GHz single core
    Motherboard: Intel i915P/i915G PCI Express x16
    Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2 512MB or integrated Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family
    Sound Card: SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio
    CD Drive: SONY CD-RW CRX216E
    Power Supply: OCZ 600W
    Operating System: Windows XP SP2
  7. Always check the requirements before buying something, like the nvidia site says :
    Intel D955XBK Intel 955X 2036
    Intel D975XBX Intel 975X 1073
    Intel SE7525GP2 Intel E7525 P08

    These are the ones which work with it manufactured by Intel, yours is not there. So I guess you have a problem right there.

  8. By "New", I meant I just got them, not that they were freshly made.
    Also, thanks for the info about the chipsets.
