video card incompatible w/ cpu/mobo?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an old Gateway system my parents bought in 2003. Although it has lain unused for quite some time, my dad wants to start using it to learn how to use the computer. However, I had recieved a radeon 9200 for free from my friend and so gave my old geforce 4 mx 32 mb to my friend. When I built my new computer, I gave my 9200 to a friend in return for their geforce 2 mx. However, the card does not work on that machine. It is a 1.8ghz p4, and I don't know the mobo name/company/model. I've tried to uninstall the drivers and install new ones, but it just doesn't work. So im wondering if the card is incompatible with that system (it's recognized by windows) or do i need to reformat, and try with a fresh install of windows. I don't want to buy a new video card as that computer will just be used for internet surfing and typing. any suggestions?

I have a similar problem. I have a GeForce4 420MX 64mb card. It will work in some systems and not in others, my old Barton system it would work on the 1.4 bios but not the 2.1 bios, drove me insane, I just replaced it with a Radeon 9550

Try a bios flash?
