Cannot Detect my Palit 9600GT in Windows 7

Alright, I have problem with my PC, there are dots on my startup screen which is green and red and tells me about my motherboard, which then goes to a black screen where there are usually nicely even lined up numbers at the top, now they are scrambled all over the place, as is with some text too. On my Desktop, there are bleeding pixels, they're not even stuck. When I checked on Device Manager, there is a question mark on the display drivers though it named NVIDIA 9600GT. I tried reinstalling, removing the drivers in safemode, and install it again.

If anyone has any suggestions or could help me in any way, I would greatly appreciate it.

Here's my build:
Gigabyte EP43-UD3R
Intel Core2Quad Q8200
Palit 9600GT 1GB DDR3
4GB DDR2
Acbel 660W PSU
Windows7 Ultimate 64

Thank you

  1. Artifacts are a clear sign the card is malfunctioning, especially when they appear at system POST. If it's still under warranty, RMA it by going here and requesting an RMA. If not, you're stuck replacing it, as repairing cards is not often an economically viable option. By "economically viable" I mean it's cheaper to just buy a new card.
  2. Thank you. It's still under warranty. But, what cause that artifacts?

    Okay okay. You have any suggestion of a great cheap GPU for my build?
    Thank you
  3. It's a defect in the card. Usually artifacts are caused by a problem with the memory modules.

    What resolution is your monitor? Helps to know what size real-estate we're dealing with when choosing a card. Also, what model AcBel PSU is yours? You should be able to find the model # on it's sticker.
  4. I'm getting bluescreen each time load pictures etc.

    I'm currently using 16" but I'm planning to buy 19"W nextweek.
    It says AcBel IPOWER 660
  5. Bah, I should have also asked your location and budget...

    I found a link to your PSU: http://www.acbel.com/eng/Product.aspx?id=48&&sd=31&&pid=185
    It's... I guess adequate is a good word to describe it :)

    But, if you like to play games, then I'd suggest a 4850, 5750 or 5770. They would absolutely crush games on a 19" screen. Have you considered an even larger monitor? Maybe 20-22" size? They'd still perform very well at a 20-22" monitor's higher resolution.

    Costs in the US are around $100-$170 online, with the 4850 being the least expensive, but the 5750 and 5770 use less power while operating and still deliver equal or greater graphics performance.
  6. If you are using a 19" monitor then the best bet is GTS250 1GB. That is a mid range card that is good for gaming and for the 19" resolution size.

    $114.99 and you do not even need a big powersupply for this card.

  7. for a 19" monitor, I'd suggest a 4850
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102824
    Its only $80 and is comparable performance to the GTS250, which should be about right for a 19". If you went up to a 1920x1080 monitor, then I would definitely suggest grabbing a 5770.
  8. Thank you Palitusa, flyinfinni and RazberyBandit for the advice.

    I don't play games that much. I only play atleast twice or thrice a week. I used my PC for short animation, rendering, and video editing. Is NVIDIA good for these activities? or ATI?
  9. RazberyBandit,

    I'm from Philippines and my budget is around $100.

    Yes. I've considered large reso monitors but maybe 19" is just right.
  10. My step-mother is from the Philippines, and my youngest brother was born there. I haven't learned any Tagalog, though. I studied Spanish in school, and have noticed that about every 4th or 5th word of Tagalog is actually Spanish. :)

    As I said before, I believe a 4850 would be a great choice. My second system has a 4850 and a 20" 1600x900 resolution monitor. The 4850 performs very well at that resolution.

    GTS 250's are nice cards, but they typically cost roughly $20-$30 more for game performance very similar to the 4850. For the difference in their prices, you might actually be able to purchase a 5750 or 5770 and gain all of their new features. The purchase of a GTS 250 only makes sense if it's the same price as a 4850, but it very rarely is.
  11. +1 to that Razbery. Its hard to find a GTS250 for $100, but the 4850 can be had for as low as $80 lately.
  12. While the 4850 is better for gaming but GTS250 has lower power consumption+physx and 3dVision.

    If you are looking more for editing then I suggest faster CPU will render and decode faster.
  13. GTS250 may have lower power consumption than 4850 (but only by a couple of watts), but the 5750 trumps them both in power (about HALF the power of the GTS250) and it adds DX11 as well as Eyefinity support. Even the 5770 uses less power and is much faster. I agree that a faster CPU will probably have more effect rendering and editing though.
  14. I had to stop and think a moment...

    If it's still under warranty, why are we discussing replacement options? Are you going to take it back to the store for a refund or exchange it for something else?
  15. Because the OP asked for suggestions in his second post ;-) Though, still, if its under warranty, just an RMA is probably the best course of action, unless it can be returned as DOA or whatever and replaced with a different product:-)

    Also keep in mind that since it is a PALIT card if RMA'd the only choices would be an Nvidia based card as they do not carry ATI products ! (which probably also plays into Palitusa's suggestions and bias toward Nvidia products ) -
  17. True- but with an RMA, it would be the exact same card. If he can return it to a store, then it can be any card.
  18. ^ That is exactly why I asked. If he can just exchange it at store-level with anything he wants, his options expand greatly. If a direct store return/exchange is at all a possibility, then that is exactly what I suggest he do.
  19. Absolutely agreed:-)

    I'm still waiting for their reply. Hopefully, a refund so I can upgrade it or exchange for other higher products.

    Oh really? That's good to hear. :) Yep, "borrowed words"like they said caused by precolonial period. :)

    Alright. Thank you. But if ever, the store only sells 9800GT and GTS250. So probably GTS250 is my choice. But I'm considering 4850 if they allow a refund. Thanks for the help. :)

  23. I'm rooting for a refund so you can get what you want:-)

    Hopefully. Cheers! :)
  25. Hey guys, just an update. I bought Palit GTS 250 E-Green yesterday. And my other Graphics Card, I will go to the store asap if I have enough time. Thanks! :)
  26. Well, it's a MUCH more capable card than any 9600GT could ever hope to be. I hope it works out for you.

    (Mind you I'm saying that while gritting my teeth and wanting to scream, "Palit!?")

    Yea. I know. I got your point. My choice are very limited. If they fail me again, I'll never buy their products. That's all I've got. :) Thanks RazberyBandit
  28. Good luck with the new card:) Hope it works out for ya better than the last one. Let us know if you run into more trouble.
