View Full Version : Video Card Problem
07-20-2000, 01:09 PM
Alright I just tried to update my video card (Graphics Blaster RIVA TNT) bios to the latest flash update. My screen went blank and went into Power Save mode during the process and now with that video card nothing shows up on the screen but the computer still loads the OS. Now I am forced to use my Diamond Monster Fusion. Could someone please help?
I doubt anyone can help that video card. If you call the manufacturer they might have a fix, but when you are updating a bios chip and something bad happens you are usually screwed. Bummer.

Well, first download the nvidia detonator drivers, these are the best for any tnt2 card. I believe the newest version is 5.22. Now take out that old card of yours and unistall all evidence of your video card. Then set the display driver to default. Shutdown, then slap in the newer card and turn it on. Install the card with the detonator drivers. This should solve your problems.

It probably would but when I restart with the TNT card nothing shows on my screen and I figured that the computer does not load the OS because of some error with the card.
