Ok so a few day's ago my friend gave me his old (working) graphic card Nvida geforce gt 240. After putting it in i downloaded drivers from nvida website and installed them, after the installation it restarted my computer and i got the Blue Screen of Death and it said MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. So i had to start it in Safe mode and un-installe the drivers and restared my PC then it worked again.

So i took out the graphic card and put my old one again installed the drivers and it worked fine.

So I downloaded BlueScreenView and it says the problem is ntoskrnl.exe (NT Kernel & System).

I did some research and found out it could be something with my RAM or Hard Drive, but I dont think this is the problem because my old card works fine. 

Please help, this Graphic card that my friend gave me is much better then mine and i want to get it working.

What do u think is the problem and what should I do to fix it?

 

My set-up is:

CPU: Intel pentium D 935 3.20 GHz

OS: Windows XP Professional SP3

Motherboard: G41MT-S2PT (Gigabayte)

RAM: 2 GB DDR3

The problem is older NVidia cards will not work with the newest NVidia drivers. You have to install one of their older drivers to get it to work properly. I am not sure what driver that particular card requires, BUT DonPedro could tell you because he is an expert on NVidia cards.

 

SO, go to this site :  http://www.k6plus.com/phpBB3/index.php?name=PNphpBB2  and make a post there asking for DonPedro's help on this matter.

What drivers did you install?

 

Have you tried these?

 

If you click on the Supported Products you will find the Gforce GT 240 listed in the 200 series list.

 

Before you install the drivers you will need to uninstall the others first.  Uninstall the graphics driver last.

First I installed the newest driver from nvida site and it didnt work i got the BSOD then I tried to install 191.07 driver and still got the BSOD. Will try those drivers now.

Could it be because of Windows XP?

These drivers should be compatible with XP.

 

Did you uninstall the previous drivers before installing the new ones?
