Yesterday I received my new graphics card: a eVGA e-GeForce 6200 256MB DDR PCI Graphics.

I placed the card in an available PCI slot, and disabled my onboad graphics card through the hardware manager in XP. I then rebooted and installed the drivers for the new card. However, the card won't display any video. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I have an eMachines W3050.

Hello OmegamB,

Did the card come with a CD?
Can you get into windows?
Regards,

Alan.

The new card should be automatically recognized and the motherboard should switch to the new card. Did you uninstall the drivers in the Device Manager?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Yes. I installed the drivers that were on the CD. And yes, I can get into Windows.

The new card should be automatically recognized and the motherboard should switch to the new card. Did you uninstall the drivers in the Device Manager?


You mean uninstall the old graphics card drivers? I didn't think of that. Guess I better go try it out.

EDIT: I uninstalled the drivers and my new graphics card works fine now! Thanks for your help!
