I have a NVIDIA 9500GS that came out of a friends HP desktop. When I install it into my pc, I just bought an Asus CG5270, and connect it to the monitor via DVI, my monitor just goes into power save mode and nothing shows on the screen. I then plug the monitor back into the integrated card and same issue. I have to remove the 9500GS in order for the integrated card to function properly. I have tried to disable the integrated card then install the 9500GS but same issue.. Any suggestions? Thanks
thanks for the replies! Well I got it from my friends pc because he bought a new one and gave me the 9500GS for free so it beats an integrated card all day.. yes, I did connect the monitor to the card and not to the onboard.. I havent download any drivers for it as I assumed that once I installed it, the computer would locate the drivers and install at that point..and no, I didn't yet contact any of the manufacturers for tech help because I spoke to a tech at a comp repair store and they suggested a few things and said that they dont see why there should be an issue..
well i figured if i'm going to go get a new card that I might as well get something that will satisfy me needs. I'm not a HUGE gamer but I do game here and there so I was thinking of getting the GTX260 or 275 with a new PSU, maybe the PC Power&Cooling 750W.. if you have any suggestions that would be great! my specs are:
C2Q Q8300 2.5GHz
8GB DDR2 ram
Running Windows 7 64bit
I will do some research on the ATI card as I have never used them. I will certainly take it into consideration though..Thanks!!
I might just try to reinstall the car..For the installation of the drivers, should i install them before I install the card? I don't see how I would be able to install them after the installation of the card as I dont have a display?? Thanks..
