Major problems with new graphic card


J

Jerry Manner

Hi

I have a ATI Radeon 9200 ( 128mb ddr with dvi tv) card which I am trying to
install in my system Here are my system configuration:

W98SE, PIII 700Mhz, Abit BX MainBoard, 128MB memory.

When placing teh card in my system and starting my pc. I use the cd of the
card to install the driver and configuration program. That goes fine untill
I restart my system. The card is giving me a hardware conflict warning.
Looking in my device manager I see that for all my PCI controllers( PCI
Ethernet Controller, PCI Input Controller, PCI ISA Bridge, PCI Mass Storage
Controller, PCI Multimedia Audio Device) I have a question mark. Before the
installation of the card I didn't had any of these. In the device manager I
also have question mark for the ATI Radeon card. Looking at the message on
the property of this card I see the following message
"This device cannot find free I/O-sources for use of (Code:12)" ( I tried to
translate this in english as good as I can for I have a dutch version of
W98)

I have installed the AGP driver of Intell before I installed the card, but
still I have this strange problems.

Can someone please help me out???

Kind Regards

Hi

What do you mean with On board video? Do you mean if I have enabled it in my
BIOS? Or is it a video option integrated on my MainBoard?

He's talking of any integrated video cards that you have on your
mboard. You should be able to disable it in the BIOS.

The other thing is to make sure you've uninstalled any old drivers you
had for your old video card. Then reset windows and try again with the
new drivers.

Hi

OK, I understand.
No, I dont have an integrated video card on my MB.
By the way how do I make sure that I have uninstalled the old drivers of my
previous video card?
Where can I check that?

add remove programs in control panel(should be done BEFORE removal of hardware, because most major hardware makers have used the
modify,repair,remove feature of UNinstall. This will look for the hardware before it moves to the uninstall window, no hardware no
window

Device manager and 'remove' old adapter (if it still appears there)

also I like to go into 'safe mode' and delete all 'ghost' drivers of hardware no longer on the system.

lastly a registry sweep of any 'brand' names ATI, Nvidia etc, whichever it is I'm UNinstalling.

I think the question now is how does he get there from here.

Can you boot into SAFE MODE?

Use Safemode/Device Manager and you may also have to re-install your
mother board AGP drivers update if required.
HTH :)
