Im having some troubles installing a NVIDIA driver on my first built workstation, using a “new” NVIDIA quadro 3000fx card (bought used on Ebay).
First I tried this on a freshly installed WinXp 64-bit (w/ sp1) and when that didn’t work I installed a good old winxp pro.
Here’s my problem! Every time I install a new NVIDIA driver + reboot…my display goes crazy (scrambled pink boxes) when windows starts up!
Also, when I install the NVIDIA driver + DON’T reboot yet + go to system->device manager and update the display adapter so it finds the quadro + set the resolution above the default 640x480…display goes crazy again!
My card is from NVIDIA (not PNY) and I’ve tried many quadro drivers I found at www.nvidia.com such as:
And also these I found here: http://www.pny.com/support/drivers/?prod=quadro
During the MAXtreme driver’s installation, I got an error saying: “Setup could not detect an NVIDA workstation graphic card to use with NVIDA %P™. Please install an NVIDIA graphic card”
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated because Im running out of ideas!! :banghead:
P.S. Im using a Tyan Thunder MB and I’ve already updated the latest motherboard’s AMD AGP Chipset Driver + AMD Driver Pack.
