I have a Hp t3625.uk base tower that i keep for some of my old games. I have been doing some upgrades to the motherboard, it is now fitted with a pentium d 3.73ghz extreme processor, 2 gb or ram and a 500w psu.
I purchased a gforce 210 graphics card but when i go to install the disc i have message pop up saying nvsetup no suitable driver for your current vga chip with a list of cards then another list of the vga chips we support are.
Is there a wat to still install this i will i need to get a card that is on the supported list???
I have tried that a few times, set the bios as both pci-e and pci and nothing. Should the card work with out any software installed?
I have been through windows and tried removing every bit of display software i can find but still no luck. The reason I am replacing the card is after I put the new processor in my old card would not work could there be anything I have overlooked?
What do you mean by "should the card work"? You mean will it put video on your screen? Then yes, if your power supply is capable of adding a video card to your system. Will it work correctly without software drivers? No, you have to install drivers.
So the pc boots with the new processor? Or it boots but no video?
If the board doesn't support the processor, then it's not going to work.
I got lucky in the end, I ended up with another HP base tower one of my mates wanted me to have a look at.
Whilst I was inside I noticed his graphics card was the second one down on the list of "VGA chips we support are", so I decided to pop that in mine and worked straight away downloaded drivers and knows runs as sweet as a whistle.
Best bit is he wanted me to see if I could add a graphics card with hdmi on it, which the one I was trying to install in the first place, so we left them swapped. Both happy for the time being.
I can't say for sure that this would be the same for you but it does strike me as I did everything suggested on here like 70 times and got no where as soon as i dropped one in the list said was ok no problems and big grins, good luck.
