Hi, I think somemore info is needed for some of your problems but yes it is a 3d card but a cut down version of a more powerfull card, LE after any gforce card means its not very good for games in my experiance im afraid. As for the other problems, Did you have another card installed before it? Or even onboard graphics? If you did and did not get rid of the other drivers then this might be your problem. Im sure there is someone out there that will have a better idea but more info is needed.

Could you check the model number again. nVidia have never made a GeForce 7500.

It is a 3D card click here, but quite puny by today's standards.

What game's are you trying to run? What does a run > dxdiag click here show on the Display tab under DirectX Features? G

The TV picture being appalling is not surprising. I tried it a few years ago and found it very poor.
Can you tell me what make the card is or where you got it as I can't find much info on a 7500 card?
Oh whether its a dual display card depends on whether it has 2 outputs, thats 2 computer outputs not the one for the TV. And you can't use a computer output on a TV unless it has a VGA input on the telly.

Not listed on nVidia website though.

From Crossbows7s link assumming that is the card you have it has 2 outputs, one VGA and one DVI. So you can connect 2 monitors to it, if you wish to use the DVI on a monitor that has a VGA input you can get an adaptor for that.

Crossbow7's link is for the ATI 7500le graphics card.

You're right about nvidia not making a 7500 model.

It is an old DirectX 8 card but does offer dual monitor and S-video tv output.

I'm not surprised most games wont run with it as it is a 5 year old design.

Hi, i found the geforce7500le card on the internet that you have. May i suggest that if you want to watch films on your tv than as memory serves me correct then there are graphics and tv cards all in one, But to hand i cant think of any, Sorry. Maybe someone else will know.
