Graphics card

  j1m 21:12 04 Feb 2003

I bought an AMDK6 200mhz 32mb ram ages ago and inside it had a Creative Labs Graphics Blaster3d graphics card in a pci slot. i then bought a pentium3 533mhz 191mbram, the graphics i think must be built in as i see no card, however as i had the 3d card from my first pc i took it out and put it in my pentium, it recognises it and i am using it, however when i am playing games that require 3d it says i do not have 3d. i have tried to look for drivers to update but cant find anything on that card, anything i can do apart from buy a new card?

Scorn me if i'm beingtoo simplistic but did you turn off onboard graphics? that may be a reason

click here and navigate to the europe website and selct drivers. If not listed, see if the chip number is on the card itself and search for it in the next part on creative site lower down. May be a CTxxxx Number ?

Try the click here (the word is drivers & all).

Email creative tech and tell them the card details but you may have to wait for reply for 3 or 5 days.

In Device Manager, Right click, Disable.

Forget-me-not, What sort of answer is that?

j1m, You need to disable your on-board graphics card from the BIOS before your separate card will work correctly. Regards J.

Forget-me-not, Can you please be less offensive and more constructive in your answers. J.

If you really want to use the PCI card, follow Djohn's advice, the onboard graphics will need to be disabled for the PCI card to work.

It may be a bit of a toss up as to whether you would be better off using the onboard graphics or the PCI card. Knowing the motherboard make/model would help.
