Hi, just put a new computer together and loaded it with vista 64. Specs are AMD 3800 +, 4GB ddr2 ram, and a geforce6100pm-m2 mobo, 500W psu.
I am tearing my hair out trying to figure out how to add a new video card. I have a spare xfx 7900 gt that I tried putting in and installing drivers for, but it automatically boots from the 6100 piece of crap. I changed the boot priority to the pciex slot in my bios but this changed nothing. I tried disabling the onboard video in display devices, then install the drivers. No dice. When I UNINSTALL the 6100 and then install the new nvidia drivers, it automatically reinstalls the damn thing. so I've tried everything. Hardware is proven to work. I tested the 7900 GT in my other rig and it works, and I took one of my 9800 GTX's and threw it in this rig and it works! So I know its not the pci slot on the mobo. i can get an image with my 9800gtx using dvi in this computer, but when I switch it to the 7900, I get nothing! I have to use integrated vga. it sucks.
And like I said, I threw the 7900 in my other pc and it works fine and dandy.
any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. thanks.
