i am attempting to install a radeon 9250 graphics card on my dell xp system.I uninstalled the existing driver through device manager, and successfully installed the new driver from the cd that came with the graphics card. When i reboot it appears to start okay, getting to the point when the xp logo is showing, then the monitor cuts out, going to idle mode? Can anyone out there help, please !
To get into the bios, reboot your PC and as the screen first comes to life you will see a message Press Del (Delete Key) for set up. (It is usually Del). Best way not to miss it is to start tapping the Del key more or less immediately after pressing the power on button. Somewhere within advanced features or Onboard Peripherals will be an option to turn on/off the onboard graphics. Turn it off, Save and Exit. The PC will then reboot.
The steps to follow I think are: 1. Uninstall the drivers for the new card. (leave card physically in machine) 2. Reboot and enter bios - disable onboard graphics 3 Save & Exit > reboot. 3. During reboot windows should find your new card and ask for driver CD. Follow instructions and with luck you should be OK
I've had this problem with my new graphic card. Is it possiable that you can try the card in another computer to ensure that it is o.k.
My graphic card being a geforece fx 5700 128mb, on a via chipset.
I ended up downloading up-dates drivers both for my mobo chipset and the card as well. I used the driver cleaner pro, to ensure all the graphic drivers had been removed. At this point I had the fx5700 piggied backed on the system with my old card.
Then reinstallled the new drivers, shutdowned, took out the old card and rebooted. Not a flicker since, I just need to try a game or two before I'm 100% certain I have sucess.
