MotherB. Asus P5PL2-E
Petium D 3.2ghz.
2Gb of Ram
MSI 512Mb GT 9500
Atlas 450Watt PSU
XP pro 32 bit
When got home step by step i did.
1.Remove old card followed by inserting new one card has no leads to PSU draws power from Pci.e slot.
2.Plug in and turn on PC enter windows install new drivers from CD update drivers from the net.
restarting Pc when asked a few times on the way.
All seems to be running fine.
Run 3d mark06 to banchmark all seems well again get banckmark.
Now Load Wow up to play after load screen i hear a cackle though the Usb headset i use that gets louder as the load on PC does.
At this stage i notice my G19 D/c and reconecing it self.i try to use keys,i can move but keys have a mind of there own,slow to react,other times like keys will stay pressed in but ofcause thay are not.
Load other games such as DoD and Bioshock.cackle is still there you can hear clearly if turn games sounds down.
but G19 works ok,bar D/c and reconecting every so 5mins.
Logitech Usb mouse is unaffficted
I rollback driver to CD still the same
I check nothing is touching card from motherB
I take card back to Dealer get a new one same card and brand install the same way still happens
So i then put the MSI N9500GT back in load drivers the same way.All works fine no crackle over headset,G19 is fine bar the rare LCD frezze that allways happened.
Under full load with N9500GT PSU does not miss a beat.GT 220 and 9500GT i thought used just about the same power.so guessing its not my PSU.other then that i have no idea.
I have paid for this card.but had made a deal with shop owner to try it for the weekend if i did not like it.return it and upgrade to GT 250.. Or i would just buy a HD 5670(wicth i thought was the best but the shop owner said"o'h no its Ati dont get that")
But hell i dont want to spend 100$ to upgrade and the same thing happens.
Any one have any ideas where to start?Thanks in advance for your time!
Haha, a biased fanboy shop owner, thats hysterical.
Anyway sounds like you didn't remove all the drivers before you installed the card and what not. Forget about the CD drivers.
With the 9500GT installed;
Right now, download the newest drivers from Nvidia for the GT220.
Download Driver Sweeper.
Go to Control Panel Add/Remove Programs and delete any ATI drivers you may have an all Nvidia GRAPHICS drivers.
Install and run Driver Sweeper, delete any ATI drivers you may have an all Nvidia drivers.
Restart the computer in Safe Mode, run driver sweeper again.
Turn off computer, insert GT220 into your computer.
Install GT220 Nvidia drivers.
Trying it atm few things im unsure of
I have delted what i can thought add and remove programs
Ran Driver Sweeper.unsure of program so i ran it chose all navida drivers and there was 1 ATI driver went to clean.then asked to rebot.so i did after that all the driver seem to still be there i just clean'd
And unsure how to boot in safe mode i press F8 and it just ask's what drive i wanna boot from.
yep f8 lol after bois has done its things(thats why my name is pcnoob)
finall question i ran safe as admin ran sweeper deleted again..asked to rebot i did run sweeper one finally time but still hasthe list of the same drivers.granted when i clean its done in no time and asking to rebot unlike first time where it took a few mins.Is this normal?
Hmm, that doesn't sound too normal. You only check "ATI-Display" and "Nvidia-Display" and then run Analyse in Driver Sweeper? You shouldn't be checking anything else. After you run the analysis, just clean it one last time. If they keep coming up just deal with it they should be gone...
Try only using the onboard graphics from the motherboard and taking out the 9500, see if you can clean it then.
ticked them all(guessing i should not of)
lol what was the Nvidia chipset?i should prob download them again
in the end after admin in safe mode there was a few.physx and Display that everytime and way i clean them.i would rebot analyse and thay would still be there.
i put GT 220 loaded downloaded driver works fine Bar if i run WoW and the crackle comes back over the headset G19 keys sticking...other games G19 works but still the crackle.
So less i just failed at deleting old drivers i have no idea.
Also side note my own personal thoughts never ever buy a Gainward product there EXPER tool is a joke..just like this card
The files left over before i swicthed card again are
Well the PSU you have isn't too fabulous (I don't know why I didn't see this before) and it could be the stem of your problems. Ir shouldn't be as your graphics cards takes a low low amount of 59 watts at load, however.
