    Default Onboard and gfx card conflict, where did I go wrong

    I just bought myself an Asus N6200/TD/128 Video card, and it works now but I had some dificulties setting it up, Trying to get some insight as to how to make this process easyer in the future:

    My system:
    OS: XP Pro SP2
    Asus P5VDC-MX Mobo with onboard GFX
    Asus Geforce 6200 (N6200/TD/128) Gfx Card
    Celeron D 2.8GHz CPU
    512MB DDR 400 RAM

    I remove the drivers for my old Radeon 9200SE. I shutdown, install the new card, boot, and it works with default XP drivers. I proceed to install drivers from CD that came with card, reboot, and then...

    Windows starts to load, then the monitor turns off, black screen, and the HDD in dicator is solid for several minutes before the system restarts itself and repeats this sequence of events in a loop.

    I do a Repair install of XP, that does not work,
    I formate, works untill I install the suplied drivers again, and same problem

    So In desperation I remove the card, boot using onboard graphics, install all drivers that came with mobo, then uninstall onboard gfx card drivers, and shutdown, install card, boot, install geforce drivers from site, reboot and viola, it works.

    So now im unsire weather it was the onboard gfx drivers, or if it was the suplied drivers, since my last try I used drivers from nvidias site.

    Can anyone tell me what I did wrong?

    hmmm,correct way below in steps below
    1.power down2.unplug power wire to pc.3 remove actual watch looking battery(cmos bateery)for 1 minute.4 remove your video card.plug your moniter cable into the onboard video connector.5 fire it up(should work fine using onboard video).6 now your in windows again(?)reload drivers for your new 6200 card.7 power down normally.8 place new video card in,connect moniter cable to new video card connecter.9 power up after connected to new card from moniter if not repeat the procedure again(1-6)if go to step 10.10 power back up hitting delte button to get into the bios.11 configure in your bios onboard vga(video)DISBALE,set primary graphics to agp-or pciexpress slot whatever your 6200 is.your welcome? :p ehe i once was a n0ob,miss those days seemed more exciting like shooting nails into my head with a hi power nailgun


    if it happens again simply start at step 1 again...

    your question-

    "So In desperation I remove the card, boot using onboard graphics, install all drivers that came with mobo, then uninstall onboard gfx card drivers, and shutdown, install card, boot, install geforce drivers from site, reboot and viola, it works. "

    my answer-

    you simply should not have unistalled the new graphics cards drivers,then tried to run the card after u freshly installed it,with no drivers to read because u deleted them?lol.its like getting a new gun(card)loading it all up with bullets(drivers)then taking all the bullets out(drivers agin),squezing the trigger and nothing happens,rofl!!!! copy my 1-10 instructions on a blank cd for future refernce..to a second pc u can use

    Not trying to start a disagreement but why would anyone want to reset cmos (remove battery etc.) just to change a video card? Starting the system with the new card then installing the drivers is the normal way to proceed.

    mirado.kelly you seem to have done the basics correctly. Your original problem may have come switching from Radeon to nVidia without removing all of the old video driver files. Driver Cleaner http://www.drivercleaner.net/ might have solved those problems. Although you were deleting the drivers they tend to leave a few .dll files etc. that can make life difficult sometimes.

    It is also possible (unlikely ...but it happens) that the drivers that came with your card had some sort of conflict with your particular configuration. I once had a set of video drivers that conflicted with the version of Java that i was running and caused major graphics corruption. It took awhile to figure that one out.

    If the drivers from nVidia are working well now be happy. Aside from beta drivers they will be the most recent available and probably the most functional drivers for you card.
