Recently formatted C drive, and re-installed everything. It all went fine untill i tried to load up Couter Strike : Source. This worked before the format so i know it works on this comp. Im thinking its a driver problemn or a on-board grpahics clash. Im using a K7VT4A motherboad and have a GeForce fx5600 256 DDR graphics card. The problem occurs when loading all games, but windows runs fine. Using Windows Xp. Any ideas, or how to disable to on-board graphics, it isnt in my device manager on system. Only says the Fx5600 and i have all the latest drivers, but a message still comes up saying that i dont have them. Any ideas, thanks
To disable the onboard graphics you need to enter the BIOS, it generally tells you on the startup splash screen how to access the BIOS ( press delete key or the F2 key) You can generally find it under Integrated Peripherals and the instructions to disable it are generally on the bottom of the screen. After disabling it press F10 then enter.
i went into prepirihals, and disable onboard game,i assumed this was the on-board graphics, thing is it had 3 options disabled 200 (anotehr number) surley if it was graphics it would just say enable/disable. What else could it be called? im sooo confused
You could try uninstalling the Nvidia drivers and reboot the computer and the new hardware found wizard should show up, whan it asks for the disk put your driver disk in then go online and download the latest drivers, which you can get from here click here Then install them.
You have reinstalled the motherboard chipset drivers after the reformat,haven't you?.........If you haven't then you might find that your AGP acceleration is disabled which wont affect Windows but will definitely spoil your fun with games.
BTW what exactly happens when you try to run CS-S?
