NVIDIA 7300 GT does not... XServe 2.1 video card?

Hey gang...

I have a 2008 XServe, quad-core 2.8.  The version OS Client 10.6.8 everything works well... to a point...

It has a dedicated Radeon x 1300 video installed, mounted directly on the motherboard.  This card works very well.

I am trying to install a 2nd card in one of the PCI - X slots and 2 I've tried so far appear in the news "about this Mac", usually a "generic" name, not the specific brand/model that I expect to see, and neither came out a signal.

First question would be why they don't work?  One is a PNY Nvidia GeForce 7300GT, which I had read here was supposed to be compatible.  The other was a 631-0064-Apple Nvidia GeForce 6600LE that came out a PowerMac G5.

Second question... because these cards would be incompatible, for some reason, should not a PCI - X based Radeon x 1300 work?  Or is there a certain number of particular firmware that makes these cards compatible with the XServe?  Can all 1300 x I flashed to make it compatible?

Extension that thought can be Nvidia cards that I already flashed to make them compatible?

All I want is (... this clock... but that's all I want...) a 2nd monitor because I am wanting to use this XServe as a basis for my constantly changing/morphing recording studio.  (don't worry about the noise, the XServe will be in another room of the microphones)

Any thoughts?

The new operating system can be problems with older cards, you can try using the drivers from Nvidia web and maybe a new card from Nvidia, you should not flash anything until you can install the appropriate drivers

  • computer does not start after installing video card

    I, m new here so please bear with me.  I have a PC HP Pavilion Media Center TV (m7434n) I'm trying to replace the video card (Nvidia GeForce 6200SE with Turbo Cache) in. I am trying to replace it with a Nvidia EVGA 8400GS. I delete all the nvidia drivers, make sure that the pci-e card is used in the implementation. I have then to remove the old card and install a new one. When I try to start the computer, fans turn on but that's all.  There is nothing on the monitor.  The computer does not start. I replaced the power supply bestec 300 watts with a new antec brand 430 watt power supply.  When I reinstalled the old video card, the computer starts ok. I tried to replace the video card with an ATI Radeon HD5550 too and it's the same thing (the computer would not start), reinstall the old card and it starts up fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    You may have a compatibility issue with the ATI HD 5550 and 2006 PC model.  I've seen other posts where ATI 5xxx video card did not work in older HP PCs.

    When you are referring to the installation of the older video card do you mean going back to the integrated video card?  Moving the video cable to the card installed?

    Install the NVIDIA 8400GS and connect the video cable. Now follow the instructions for clear the CMOS.

  • Satellite A200: nVidia 7300 Go does not save the display settings

    I'm using the latest drivers available, but I can not even save display settings in nvidia
    Control Panel. For example if I turn down the brightness and increase digital vibrance and apply
    These settings, the next time that I reboot or run and release a game settings ALWAYS comes back to the
    their default values.

    I can't use a monitor external because the default brightness settings
    are very painful! They are literally blinding! Color settings do not record of either.

    Support for the New Zealands tech told me that it is a feature of Vista. What's supposed to be a joke?

    I also get bad interference on the screen lines when using an external monitor. It's very bad.


    Have you noticed that emits from the first day with the factory settings?

  • Nvidia optimus T440p does not work on Windows 8.1


    I recently bought my new laptop (Lenovo T440p) which comes with built-in OPTIMUS Intel coupled by GeForce GT 730 M 1 GB graphics card. I tried to play games; However for some reason any show of game options, that my Intel HD card is used as a default graphics card. This suggests that the OPTIMUS technology does not properly switch the graphics card. System running on windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. How to activate the switching Optimus?



    Try the latest drivers available on the nvidia site. They work very well on T440s + gt730m and W8.1, so there should be no reason not to work on your t440p. For some reason, put the Lenovo system update does not detect them.

    You can also check in the nvidia Control Panel, that optimus is not set to "only integrated graphics. They are 3 parameters, you can choose amongst (gpu integrated, discreet, auto).

    It is also an option in the nvidia Control Panel to display an icon in the taskbar with the current gpu being used, could be useful. Do not remember exactly where the option is good.

  • NVIDIA Control Panel does not open

    I just reinstalled Windows 7 on my PC and the NVIDIA Control Panel does not open when I click on the link in the windows control panel.  I installed it by using Windows Update.

    Updates Windows reports that it installed properly but the Panel itself will be open from nt.

    Should I remove it and reinstall again?

    Version is Ver: 191.07

    Hi AdelaideJohn67,
    I suggest to uninstall existing NVIDIA Control Panel and restart the computer. Visit the NVIDIA Web site, download and install the drivers manually.

    After installing the drivers, restart the computer and just do a right click on your desktop and watch if the NVIDIA Control Panel whether or not written.

  • Latestes Update 14.1.2 does not recognize the iMac graphics card.


    I've updated my PS - CC to 14.1.2 and now my graphics card is not recognized.  The problem was supposed to have resolved this update.  I have an iMac 27 inch end 2012 with 32 GB memory and 1 TB of hard drive.  My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 512 MB of 660M.   When you start PS - CC after the update, I received a message that my graphics card was not recognized and I need to update the driver.  As you have known, only Apple has updates to the graphics driver.  There is NO update driver on Apple.  Checking my preferences I don't have the ability to Open GL now.  My driver works well with 14.1.1.  I'll try to retreat towards the 14.1.1 if possible.  Any help would be appreciated!


    Here's an update of the above.  Just by chance, I found an interesting solution.  I restarted my computer and then open PS - CC 14.1.2.  I received the same message... PS does not recognize that your graphics card for people with disabilities advanced display options.  Otherword, NO Open GL graphics.  So, I closed PC - CC and rebooted just to see what would happen and... I don't have the error message.  Check the Preferrrence, found my recognized graphics card and I have Open GL.  If for some reason, the first time you open PC - CC 14.1.2 with iMac, your graphics card will not recognize.  Just close and open again and you'll get him back.  Weird!  Adobe, please fix this for us users of iMac!


  • HP 7 G2 Dose does not install apps on SD card

    I recently that Got a HP HP TAB 7 G2 and it dose not allow me to install apps on SD card.

    I have read and found that Android 4.4.2 dose does not install apps on SD card on HP tabs.

    Y at - it another way I can do it, or I can hope an update or update Android 5.0 will allow me to do.

    I like to play games on the TAB and can install only 1 or 2 big games due to the lack of internal memory (4 GB).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey @ApoorvMishra ,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I understand you are trying to install apps on your SD card instead of internal storage.

    Unfortunately, this is not a feature available on any Android device that does not have root access.

    There are methods available, but most require rooting the device, or by using the APKs HP could not support or encourage.

    Thank you.

    Hello Ann,.

    If you allowed them access to your PC, then it is a problem. I considered reinstalling my OS and change all my passwords. It would also make sense, if you use the online banking etc., to inform your bank that you have a security hole on your PC. This will alert them to anyone using your current password to the Bank etc.
