Nvidia Geforce - Code 12

I have a year old polywell with 2 gb of ram, amd 4800 and a nvidia geforce 7800 gt card and a samsung 970p monitor. Recently my screen has slowed down and when i scroll up and down instead of scrolling smoothly it scrolls one section of a time and has become very choppy. I went to my device manager and under display adaptor the nvidia geforce 7800 gt card has a exclamation point. When i went into the nvidia geforce 7800 gt card properties i get the following message for the device status:

"This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system. Click troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device. "

Is my graphics card dying?

When i go inside my computer and to make sure the graphic card is securely attached and put everything together, the graphic card works again and everything is fine. The next time i boot up the computer, the graphic card does not work and i get the same code 12 problem. Any advice on how to fix this.

Overclocking Nvidia Geforce 7900 Gs

I'm running a nvidia geforce 7900 gs, and i was overclocking it at the "optimal frequencies" according to cool bits, and my computer froze up and now for the last day i'm not longer able to overclock my card anymore. Changing the frequency one notch will cause my pc to crash. I've re-installed drivers, updates bios, ect. I'm at the end of my rope here, i feel i've tried everything. When i move the frequency, my screen flashes to a black screen, then normal, then black, ect and eventually reaches the blue screen of death. The card still works fine normally. But it won't let me underclock or overclock. I don't understand why.

Nvidia Geforce 7600 Gs Problem

There is a problem with my video card but i am not sure what is wrong. It is nvidia geforce7600gs, my system is windows xp professional service pack 2. My pc restarts automatically if i try to watch a movie with any of the following: bsplayer, vlc, windows media player, media player classic. I installed a software to test my hardware- it is called test my hardware and when i test my video card it gives me an error is not a valid integer value. I tried to test the direct 3d through dxdiag and after i hit the direct 3d my pc restarted and the resolution was then automatically set to the lowest and when i tried to change it, i could not, it did not give me the option to change at all. I had to restore the system. If i go to the device manager i see that my video card driver is working properly. Even though it was ok, i went to nvidia website and tried to update the driver. After i installed the update, it gave me a message that the system could not be modified. If i deinstall the driver and install the new one, it gives me the same message and the system actually does not install any driver at all. So, i ended up restoring the system again to the point where it still had the driver installed. Everything started a couple of days ago. Firstly, it was only restarting sometimes when i try to start movie, now restarts every time. For your information, i thought service pack 3 may cause me some problems and yesterday i removed it from control panel. It had been installed automatically with windows updates. But removing it did not solve my problem.

Nvidia Geforce 7950 Gt Bottleneck

Will the nvidia geforce 7950gt get bottlenecked from my computer specs? How about the 6800gt? Im trying to get a agp card that wont get bottlenecked or will barely get bottlenecked by a tiny bit from my computer because why would i get a card thats being bottle necked when i could get a cheaper card and get the same performance because its all tied down by my slower components in my comp you know?

Nvidia Geforce 6600 Crashing

I bought my nvidia geforce 6600 from the company evga, about 4 months ago. In the first 2 weeks it ran fine, and there was no problem. After the first 2 weeks, i booted up my computer and went online to watch shows on youtube. After the first minute of watching, my computer froze hard. I had to restart my computer using the power button. I have no trouble with playing games, my computer has never frozen during gameplay. It freezes mostly when i watch videos on the internet, or video downloads. It also freezes up sometimes when i surf the internet. I have received error messages after crashing, like " nvidia geforce 6600 has caused the problem contact manufacturer " i have downloaded the latest nvidia drivers, after cleaning up my old drivers. I also downloaded the hyperion drivers for my mobo. After downloading the drivers, the problem persisted, so i searched through forums, and tried switching to an older 77. 2 nvidia driver (after cleaning up the newer drivers) this also did not work. I also tried cleaning up the hyperion driver, and downloading the 4 in 1 driver from via. This also did not work. My motherboard model is a p4m266a- 8235, manufactured by gigabyte ( i tried the site, it wasn't helpful) it's chipset is the via p4x266a, and the mps version is 1. 40. The south bridge is vt8233/8733c. I have a 400 watt power supply, by powmax, it is a atx switching power supply. I have a celeron processor, equivalent to the pentium 3 processor, running 2. 02ghz. My computer has ram of 768. It is a windows xp 32-bit computer.

Is Nvidia Geforce 210 Is Good?

I've checked the specs and it sucks but the thing is, it promises less pressure on cpu and it can run hd smoothly. Here's what i want to do:

-Edit 18 mega-pixel photo on photoshop (raw files are 24mb each pictures)

-Full hd video editing on sony vegas 8. 0

-Open up demanding application at the same time (photoshop and sonyvegas)

-View hd content online without lags


Atleast run games that are made from 2002-2006

I currently use, uhh some cheap crap intel integrated onboard graphics. Budget $50 and i"m getting this card at a price $40. Is this the best bang for the buck? Is this the best i could possibly get with my needs and budget?

Btw my pc is a lil low profile, small case but can fit gt 210

1. 8 ghz dual core
2 gb ram (forgot what ddr and what mhz)

220 w power-supply, but i think i can get away with that mount cuz my motherboard, ram and cpu doesn't look like it's running at a full 220w.

Nvidia Geforce Fx 5200 Boot Up Problem

I just assembled a new pc on my own accord (obviously for $$ reasons). I had an old 128 mb nvidia geforce fx5200 on me from my old pc. I had been using since last november. I plugged in the card in my new pc (mci p4mam2-v motherboard, 1g pc2100 ddr ram, p4 2. 3 ghz) running win xp home edition. My old pc (piii 600 mhz, 408mb ram) was runninng a win xp pro. Windows detected the card properly and installed the drivers properly. I was all happy so i plugged in my monitor to my agp card but got a blank screen. That is the monitory still gets a signal (its not switched off) but all it displays is a small black screen). The drivers were installed automatically by windows and recently when i moved i lost the original box pack for my graphics card hence dont have the original driviers from nvidia. Thinking further that it might be drivers problem i went to nvidia's webpage only to find that download site was down. In the end (i think out of spite ) i rebooted the pc only to find that the monitor was not getting any input from the cpu (it kept flashing). I let it run for a while keeping my fingers crossed. After a while, i think after the blue progress bar, i found that the monitor was once again giving me the black screen. I dont know what to do further. I have read through the suggestions trying to search for the right answer in different threads to no avail.

Nvidia Geforce 6200 Turbocache Problem

I bought a nvidia geforce 6200 turbocache card because my old one got shorted out and i couldn't see anything. I installed the card and everything works fine like my desktop and everything is just fine i can see and play starcraft fine. But i want to play world of warcraft and it doesn't work it just goes to a black screen and starts blinking. I updated the card to the 257. Something update and it didn't do anything. Dxdiag wont pick it up either and device manager says this windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43). I uninstalled it. Rebooted the computer and my computer still looks normal and i can play starcraft still as if the card is installed. So i ran the installer again and nothing happened when i rebooted my computer. I also cant access the nvidia control panel it says you are not currently using a display attached to an nvidia gpu ( which i am). I also have directx 11. It doesn't wanna detect the card or whatever. Also the windows experience index will not update from my last card, when i run the refresh it says that it cant complete the index due to an error being reported from the os blah blah. I also have a 2 ata channels and a standard dual channel pci ide controller.

Nvidia Geforce Gts 250 Or Gt 240?

While gts250 formerly known as 8800gts, 9800gtx, 9800gtx+, but the card itself is by far superior to the gt240 (the performance is roughly the same as 9600gt). And because it can do better, it also requires a decent power-supply. As from the details listed on nvidia's website, the card requires 105w to operate. It isn't much, but still would be troubling for a brand-less power supply (those claiming itself to be 500w but it fact it can only do 240w) to provide.gt240 is generally the same as 9600gt, the difference being nvidia used the 40nm fabrication process (being the same as the redesigned gts250) which allows roughly the same performance as 9600gt but at a lower power consumption. It is therefore does not require a 6 pin pcie power cable running from the power supply to provides power for the graphic card while it is a must for gts250. In terms of actual number of wattage, it is a 69w graphic card so most power supply should be able to make it. (Note there's still a number of uncertainties as how poor any power supply can be. )

Nvidia Geforce 5200 Fx Agp Card Problem

I've just purchased a nvidia 5200 fx graphics card and tried to install it on my pc. However, i am having no success in getting it to work. I have an onboard agp graphics card at the moment and believe that this may be part of the problem. Most of the time my pc gets to the windows xp professional start screen and then goes blank, i assume this is because the drivers on the system don't match the hardware or because the card is overheating.

Using Nvidia Geforce 9800gt On Dell Inspiron 530

Can i use a nvidia geforce 9800 gt 1gb gddr3 pci express graphics card on a dell inspiron 530? I have a dell inspiron 530, and the graphics card is really crappy. I can barely play vindictus on the lowest settings possible. I want to play some really top-notch games, but i don't want to spend more than $150 on a graphics card. I have zero knowledge of installing graphics cards, so i have no idea if this graphics card is installable into the dell inspiron 530.

Nvidia Geforce 220 Fit In Compaq Cq4010f ?

Will a nvidia geforce 220 fit inside a compaq cq4010f pc? I need to get a new card because i believe my other one is broke. I have a pny nvidia geforce 210 currently. From the pictures the 220 looks thicker than the 210 and the space i have to install it in is cramped, about 3 inches wide, 8 inches long. On the 210, i had to remove the bracket that holds the monitor cables to make it fit and consequently the hdmi cable is just dangling inside the computer. I have a 400 watt power supply so that should be no problem but the space i have to install the card in is, again, very limited. Will it work? If so, should i stick with pny as the brand for the card?

Pci Express Nvidia Geforce 8400gs Not Working

I have a problem with my geforce 8400gs. Looking for a solution, and came across someone who had exactly the same problem 9 months ago. So similar that i've cut and pasted that question:

"I turned my computer off one night and when i turned it on in the morning my screen said no signal. So i turned my screen and computer off and back on again. This didn't work so i checked the connections. This didn't work either. So i plugged the monitor into the on-board vga on my motherboard and this worked. I've removed the card and put it back in again. I've tried installing drivers and searching for it in the device manger. Nothing has worked. Anyone ideas will be grateful"

At the time the advice was that the card was probably gone, and to replace it. I've had my card tested, and it definitely hasn't gone. I wondered if anyone had any other solutions?

Hp Dv3t Win 7 X64 Nvidia Drivers (geforce G 105m)

I wiped my new laptop clean, and i've been trying to find a driver that works for this. I'm running windows 7 rc1 x64, and i have tried tons of drivers for vista x64, and they error out saying it's the wrong os. I've tried running them in compatibility mode, too. Also, i have tried the nvidia drivers straight from nvidia themselves for w7x64, and they only install the hd audio driver. Is there any hope?

Nvidia Geforce Gtx 260 Or Ati Radeon Hd 5770?

Whats a better graphics card? Nvidia geforce gtx 260 " 896mb or ati radeon hd 5770 - 1gb?

Answer:- it depends upon what you mean by "better". The gtx 260 is more powerful and gets higher frame rates in games. It also has physx support for the few games that support it. However it's an older design that doesn't support dx11, and requires more power. In most games, the radeon 5770 is slightly slower than ati's older radeon 4870, while the gtx 260 is slightly faster than the 4870. In call of duty the 5770 actually edges the 4870. However, to run a gtx 260 or radeon 4870 you need at a minimum 550w power supply with two (not just one) pci-e power connectors, while the radeon 5770 only requires a 450w power supply with a single power connector. So a lot of people can use the 5770 without having to upgrade their power supplies. Also, to run those older cards in sli or crossfire requires a psu with 4 power connectors! Also the radeon 5770 has the eyefinity feature for connecting a 3rd monitor., 5.html

So the gtx 260 wins on pure performance in current games, but for features and future upgrade-ability, the 5770 is a better choice.

Nvidia Geforce Gtx 480 Fit In Dell Dimension E520 ?

Would a nvidia geforce gtx 480 fit in dell dimension e520 without changing any of the original components?

Answer:- no. According to the dell website, your computer only has a 305w power supply. A gtx 480 requires allot of power, all most double a regular graphics card. But other than that it should work fine. You will need at least a 650w power supply to run this graphics card, but i would recommend getting something a bit higher, 800w preferably. Buy why do you want to get this card? You're computer is not that great to begin with, only duo core/pentium. This graphics card is way to powerful and everything else in your system will end up bottlenecking it. Don't waste your money on a $500 card when your computer isn't even worth that much. I would recommend getting a xfx hd 5770 1gb, even this might be a little over powerful for your computer. But once again you'll have to upgrade the power supply to at least 450w, preferably 650w.

Nvidia Geforce Gtx 480 Fit In Hp Pavilion Elite Hpe-360z Case ?

Can a nvidia geforce gtx 480 evga superclocked graphics card fit in an hp pavilion elite hpe-360z series case?

Answer:- it will fit but it wont work if you don't upgrade to at least a 500 watt power supply. Based on hp's website you have a 440 watt power supply. If you don't upgrade your power supply you risk damaging your computer as you don't have enough power to run your graphics card. Graphic card upgrades are always expensive.

Nvidia 1gb Gts 250 Vs Nvidia 9500 Oc

I'm not very up-to-date with video card news, so i need some help. Around 2 years ago, i bought an nvidia 9500 (gtx overclock i think. ) 1gb and i've been pretty happy with that, but it's starting to struggle to play newer games on higher resolutions. I've found a cheap (relatively) nvidia gts 250 1gb for sale in my local computer parts store, and i was looking for any comparisons on how they compare. Obviously, the 9500 is an older, budget card, so i don't want any "just buy the new one" answers, i would like some estimations about how much better the 250 would perform. I am currently playing:

Mass effect (runs quite well most of the time), assassin's creed (pretty laggy all of the time), crysis (runs badly on anything higher than med-low settings), race driver grid (runs fairly well, but there is laggy, unresponsive parts), fallout 3 (runs well until the bullets start flying and the effects kick in), dragon age: origins (runs slow with any amount effects enabled).
