|Thanks for replying. I did some troubleshooting and in fact hooked up the onboard video and it works. The problem now is that games even simple ones are s....l....o....w|
and the native resolution is not supported. I checked the driver through nvidia and it claims it is upto date. I dont know if it checks for corruption of the driver however.
I started looking for a video card replacement that uses a small amount of power. I only have a 300w psu and some research indicated that the 8300 GS only uses 29 watts but not verified.
Is it worth trying to reinstall the driver.?? Any tips on finding a low power replacement for the 8300GS that has equiv or better performance??. Graphics performance index is 3.4 for 8300 vs 1.0 for onboard graphics.
