 Cry

i have an hp pavillon desktop.  wanted to upgrade the graphics card to geforce 8400.  should be a minor thing.  disabled onboard graphics in BIOS and device manager.  loaded drivers for new card.  computer won't accept.  says conflict and when i plug into the card, monitor goes to sleep.  i have tried every trick i know, so i must be missing something.  the card should be compatible. 

any ideas?  this should be a simple thing!!!

Im not really sure what to tell you. I tried searching for possible conflicts but really dont see any, at least posted on Google. To me it seems like the conflict is coming from the switching off the onboard video. I have never had onboard video so I do not have the experience there. Have you tried to just plug in the video card without switching the onboard to off? Also make sure you have the correct version of video card that goes with the computer, such as pci, pci express, 2.0, x16, agp. Im sure you checked that prior but Im just tryig to come up with ideas. Il keep looking for you. What type of Hp do you have, it might help with our search?

Just thought of another thing. What about Direct X. Is your video card direct x10 and maybe the computer is running direct x9. Not sure if that would conflict or not but maybe.

Shawn, thank.

yes, i have done it without disabling, disabling, starting over...you know the drill  grin

in the mean time...while climbing around on the floor under the desk...i realized that one problem is my power supply.  it's not adequate for the needs of the new card.

as it happens, my youngest left his (at the time) super desktop upstairs.  while the cards, etc. are outdated, the power supply is awesome.  i will swap it out today.  it is the only thing i have not tried and was a suggestion on one of the geek boards.  grin


i'll update after i do that.  once again, KISS may have struck me upside the head  evil

Sorry to here about the computer. But I do agree on the plus side. I was also thinking of building a new one but as of right now there are no new games that I want to play to justify the computer I want to build. Happy building and have fun buying!
