Basically got a new nvdia gt220 and installed it into my computer, working perfectly fine, increased my FPS on wow and everything, installed the drivers but for some reason it wont display the color red, when i tried disabling it and using my motherboards graphic card red still wouldn't display, any ideas? hope it isnt broken =/

Who says I couldn't?...

... but I won't for pretty much the reason I already posted, too many FAQ'in tech support whiners annoying everyone else and complaining because they didn't get no love. [:thegreatgrapeape:6]

You're pretty useless if you can't figure this out yourself with access to the internet. [:thegreatgrapeape:5]

buddy i've asked soooooooo many people and not one has been able to solve the issue my only choice is to call nvidia and the indian on costumer support will most likely tell me to send it in for a replacement.....from what i see there's no other way to fix this.

TheGreatGrapeApe is up his own arse most of the time and hes mod, tbh mate if you haveing nothing usefull to say why bother? Calling everyone n00bz in your leet talk doesnt really help does it?

Have you checked you monitor settings to make sure you have it set up right?

If it makes you guys either change your ways or go away, then it definitely helps.
Understand what ZipZoom wrote, and why no one likes newbies coming in and whinning about the forum just because they didn't get the answer they wanted in a short few hours.

A forum full of n00bz asking each other tech support questions isn't a place anyone wants other than the n00bz who should be at Cnet instead.

Seriously, YOUR question could've been answered by Google in 30 seconds, and the OP's here would've gotten a better reception with some tact instead of deriding the fourm. Neither of you are worthy of anything more than contempt.
June 21, 2010 6:21:05 PM

Its a public forum your not GOD mate some people PREFER another persons 1 to 1 answer then google!

If i type gtx 470 vrs 5850 ill get like 200 benchmarks with either card winning ect what does that prove?

Just because we dnt live on our pcs doesnt make you any better then us.
June 21, 2010 6:23:48 PM

im not saying im better than anyone, it's just annoying how i post a question and someone who posts a question after me gets 20 replies in 5 minutes because he's not a newbie like me but i guess that's a concept too hard to grasp since you people aren't really being kind -.-
June 21, 2010 6:26:44 PM

You were a bit cheeky but Ape must be on his period hes nukeing every new person because they dont know as much as him! Its not his job to post unhelpful comments, i dunno why he does, other then the time of the month.

Since most of what I see is about a dispute, I'll attempt to help you and ignore what might have been written above.

This may be an obvious thing, and I'm not meaning to insult you, but are you plugging your monitor into the new descrite video card?

Given both the new card and your IGP are having the same issues, it sounds a lot like the monitor or monitor cable that may be bad. Perhaps even a pin bent on the cable.

thanks for helping, well basically i tried two different cables and made sure it was plugged into the GT 220, also checked temperature and the temp is fine, i tried taking it out uninstalling my old drive and puttin it and reinstalling the new drive yet nothing works, my old graphic card was an integrated, could that be an issue? using old one now and colors work fine so it's not the monitor or cable for sure.
think i might need to send it in which wouldnt be possible since warranty is void =/

well here's the thing, my friend has an AMD and the same monitor, now he's tried it on his just to troubleshoot, obviously it didn't work for long because of nvidia but it worked great on his, just gave him error messages and shut down the computer, never the less it worked tho, all colors and fps was great so could it be that the VGA port on my GPU is broken and i'd have to replace it?

With my Nvidia cards, I've found that if they are not seated well, they lose a color (as aposed to my ATI cards, which work at a lower bus speed).

You might pull the card out, blow some compressed air in the slot and over the card pins, and reinstall it. I have one computer that is really fussy about it, but it always ends up working after I get it seated well.

i have a this specific lock on my PCI slot, it holds it perfectly in place, also screwed it down, my pci slot also just recently got spotless cleaned so i dont think thats it, a friend has an HDMI monitor so i might able to see if it's my vga by hooking it up to his monitor, we'll see :p

Well, I always think mine are locked in place too, and screwed in place when I've had the problem. They appear to be perfect, but it just doesn't always work, then I take it out and reinstall it, and presto, it works. Don't dismiss it too quickly.

One last thing, it is possible it's the PCIe slot that is bad. You never used it with your integrated card in the past, and may not have known of the fault. If you can try another video card in the slot, it would help determine if that could be the case.

DVI vga and one that looks like HDMI, not sure what it is, says DP on it.

RMA the card. That or get a DVI to VGA adapter and use the DVI port.

Before you spend money, RMA the card or anything. You should try reseating the card a couple of times (test between attempts), and if that doesn't work, try another video card you have or a friend has.

You might find the card does work. You might find the problem is still there with another video card, suggesting that it's a PCIe slot/MB issue. (or the monitor is going bad intermittantly).

yeah gonna need to find another graphic card to use though ;p, might be able to borrow one from a friend but he's kind of paranoid about his stuff, we'll see.
June 21, 2010 7:17:19 PM

yeah another problem is i believe this cards warranty is void and i can't RMA it unless i want to pay like 70 bucks to get it fixed because i know how nvidia can be sometimes.
June 21, 2010 7:21:25 PM

Hows the warranty void?

i remember it saying on the back of the box that if i were to open something on the graphic card it's void cant remember what it was, but i could always call nvidia and check up on it.

Not even remotely true, I chose you both for your special reasons as outlined. Most I simply ignore nowadays (as I was deciding on yes/no with the OP until his last comment).
Then there are other posts like the AGP vs PCI, which I know would yield very little from Google, and so I help in that thread.

However, I don't help nor tolerate people who complain about the forum not being fast enough to solve their personal problem as if it's everyone else's fault for not being at their Lauren Becall; nor do I abide people like yourself make generalized BS statements, and then unwilling to back them up with facts and instead whine about the other person.

It's not my job, it's a perk, and also one of the conditions of my being a mod, I don't have to suffer n00bz any differently than before.

So stop moaning, and start acting like an adult instead of a petulant child.

Usually that's only physical alterations (like replacing the heatsink), not something you would do in the course of normal use.
It's unlikely that that has changed.

That's all I'll say on it.
