problem with nvidia geforce 8400gs
hi there, i recently installed nvidia geforce 8400gs on my desktop. my desktop has core2duo 2.2 ghz processor, 1 gb ram and has on board video card of128 mb memory. before i installed the graphic card my 3d modelling software ran smoothle unless the drawing file became too big. but after i hav installed the graphic card even the small files also feel terribly sluggish on my system.
reason i brought the graphic card was to improve real time on screen graphics display. but the installation has just resulted in the opppsite. my mother baord is asus x series. p5gc-mx . please help!!
i use google sketchup 6 for 3d modelling. pls help. thanks

Two things that come to mind.
Did you uninstall the drivers for the on-board graphics chip before installing the 8400GS?
Have you installed the drivers for the new video card? You can get the newest version here: NVIDIA Drivers DownloadUnofficial TechIMO record holder for the number of times being added and removed from beemer's ignore list.

Hey, i have another problem with a 8400gs. I'm unable to install drivers for it. When the installation is half done, the screen goes blank and after ca 5minutes system reboots and then the screen blanks out again. I tried to install the driver after the hard drive had been reformatted.
Oh, another thing. The radiator of the card goes pretty hot. I have no idea how hot it may get, but i wouldn't keep my hand on the radiator over 10 seconds. Might that be a problem?

THATS your advice?
Your better off starting your own thread, just because the this thread pertains to an 8400 doesn't mean the issues are related...
Looks like rooster pretty much covered it...
I would use DriverSweeper to clean the old drivers out and as Rooster said, install the newest...
