Hardware :: Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS Not Recognized?

Mar 17, 2011

I am trying to build a linux box from an old Dell Optiplex GX240 that I got for free. I have gone out and bought a Sparkle Nvidia GsForce 8400 GS PCI video card for it but am having trouble getting it installed properly. It seems that the card is not recognized by the computer. The command lspci shows no signs of the new video card. I have installed the lastest Nvidia driver (huge PITA) but as expected this did not change the fact that the computer cannot see the new card. The card is rated for 350W and I have a 500W power supply so I should be good there. I have also changed the BIOS settings to auto detect the video card instead of just the stock one. Is my card simply incompatible with my motherboard or are there ways to get this card to work?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Upgrading Graphics To GeForce 8400 - Simple Upgrade Or Not?

May 24, 2010

Sick and tired of sluggish performance using the onboard X1200 graphics so I just ordered a cheap GeForce 8400 with 256MB DDR2 memory. If I simply disable the on board graphics then plug the GeForce card in, will I have to re-install Ubuntu or will the system be clever enough to detect and configure the card for me?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GeForce 8400 GS + 10.10 - Screen Image Extrapolating The Display Boundaries

Nov 23, 2010

I have just installed a GeForce 8400 GS card in my Ubuntu 10.10 with the Nvidia proprietary driver( version number: 260.19.21).

The Display is connected to the desktop through an HDMI cable and the resolution is 1920 x 1080 .

After some trouble(Black Screens), almost everything is ok.

The only problem is the screen that is extrapolating the Display Boundaries.

I have tried to set it through the nvidia configuration program without success.

Is there any parameter in Xorg.conf that could resolve this issue?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Get 10.04 Working With Nvidia 8400 GS?

Jun 12, 2010

This is my first post and I am relatively new to Ubuntu, please be gentle

I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
Hardware is as follows:
2GB Ram 667Mhz
120GB WD Drive
External USB DVD-Rom

I can install and run the OS perfectly with this setup. Once I add an Nvidia 8400GS Video Card via PCI, the system will no longer boot into the OS. I also get errors when trying to boot into the Live CD as well. I will copy the error message details over at a future date because currently this is my only working system. They did have something to do with low level memory corruption or some such with a warning about potential BIOS corruption. Once the 8400GS is removed, the system will boot normally if a bit slower than normal (on first boot after removal).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Installing Nvidia 8400 GS Drivers On 11.4 ?

Mar 20, 2011

What i have done so far, after all that i still get a black screen after rebooting, so im runing on x11 failsafe.

1) Installed development tools and sources needed for nvidia kernel module build.

Checked what type of kernel i have and installed all the components below with all the dependencies they pull in.

2) Added nomodeset into /boot/grub/menu.lst

3) Set NO_KMS_IN_INITRD to Yes in /etc/sysconfig/kernel

4) Added blacklist nouveau to /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf

5) Rebuild initrd and rebooted

6) After reboot switched to run level 3, login as root (or as user and su to root)

7) Install the NVIDIA driver, run nvidia-xconfig (the -X option) and reboot

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVIDIA GeForce GT 325M And NVIDIA Optimus Support?

Apr 3, 2011

I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC that has an Intel HD IGP, nVIDIA GeForce GT 325M GPU, and nVIDIA Optimus technology. I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME. I used to be a former Ubuntu user. I used Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64 bit. In Ubuntu, it was not recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers because it would cause me to log into a TTY console upon reboot.

nVIDIA states that they have no plans to support Optimus technology in Linux at any time. Would it be recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers in OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME? Will I get the same problem as in Ubuntu? How do I do this?

Red Hat :: 5.4 Not Compatible With NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600

Aug 14, 2010

I am trying for Redhat certification on RHEL 5.4. When i tried to install it on my Acer laptop with NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600, I was only able to install it in CUI mode and no GUI. From NVIDIA website I tried both the newest and oldest version they have for Linux, which is with .run extension. I tried installing it using sh <drivername.run> and it is starting the wizard, but exiting abruptly, with a kernel error.

How to work around on this issue? Any generic driver that would work for this display adaptor? whether version 5.5 would work with this card?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Get Any Video Using Nvidia Geforce GT 240?

Jan 18, 2011

Built a custom pc using a Gigabyte mobo and amd processor. Mobo has onboard video. Ubuntu Maverick installs fine using on board video but when I put in the Nvidia Geforce GT 240 I get either no video or scrambled video. I've tried disabling the on board video and still no luck. I've also tried to install nvidia drivers first, and will get it to work but video is not crisp and will not show all of the screen.

Hardware :: NVIDIA Geforce 7050 Compatible ?

Apr 30, 2010

I purchased a new computer and I am trying to boot up gparted to partition the HD for installing my Linux Distros, but it gives the famous error Quote:

input signal out of range. So I tried booting up some other live cd's, some give the same error as above and some tell me that the resolution or refresh rate in wrong. Of course using a live cd I have no control over that. I also tried three different monitors that have run Linux just fine on other computers.

My only thought that I could come up with is the NVIDIA Geforce 7050 graphics is not compatible with Linux. Can anyone confirm this ? Or is there something else I can try ?

Hardware :: NVidia GeForce G 310M Support ?

Feb 13, 2011

I am thinking of buying a Lenovo IdeaPad Z360, it has a GeForce G 310M.

I can't find much info on Linux support but an Ubuntu thread seems to suggest it isn't good. Can someone confirm that this card works with the latest nVidia drivers on Linux (Arch in particular)? It'd be even better if you had the Ideapad Z360 and could report on any other hardware problems I might have?

NVidia seems to say they have support (listed without the G however), but I've heard conflicting reports and so would like to check.

EDIT: I also found these:



Does the Z360 have optimus and the Z560 not so? I can't detect that either of them have it but occasionaly, someone says that they do. Can anyone confirm this? I thought the only real difference was the screen size.

Fedora Hardware :: NVIDIA 195.36.24 Does Not Work With GeForce GTX280 On F13

May 28, 2010

I just installed F13, congrats to the community for the awesome work - everything worked straight out of the box .

Unfortunately, I need to install the proprietary NVIDIA driver for my job (CUDA stuff). I first installed F13 + kmod-nvidia from Fusion on a machine with a GeForce 7200GS, and everything works ok (after turning nouveau off).

Then, I proceeded to update another machine featuring a GeForce GTX280 (again, nouveau blacklisted). The install was apparently successful, but X turned out to be extremely unstable and always crashes a few seconds into the session, either by leaving a blinking screen or by causing the machine to reboot. Thinking that some file might have ended up corrupted, I reinstalled F13 and tried nvidia-graphics from ATrpms. The result was the same: computer hanging a few seconds into the X session. Finally, I installed from the NVIDIA sh package, and again same outcome .

The card is most likely ok because I ran it with F10 till yesterday flawlessly, so I can only guess that it is the new version of the driver coming broken from NVIDIA. I tried installing version 185.18.36 but it cannot figure out the version of my kernel headers, and the legacy versions available from the repos do not support the GTX 280, so I cannot be positive about version 195.36.24 being bugged.

Both machines are x86_64 (a Phenom II and a Core i7). Especially, does anyone know how I could get version 185.18.36 to run on F13?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Installing Nvidia Drivers GeForce 210 In 11.4?

May 2, 2011

I am having a challenge to install drivers on this machine with the OS and graphics card stated in the subject. To date I have tried different ways and they are broken in the steps or in the results I get on my machine. The how-to written by ajohnw Installing an nvidia driver - easiest I have found to date. results in a file or directory not found when I try to execute



The article SDB:NVIDIA the hard way results in the following error (copied from the error log):


ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exist.The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured.

Researching how to resolve that error and I can't find anything relevant to openSUSE 11, closest version being openSUSE 9.Lastly, I've tried this SDB:NVIDIA drivers and for some reason it does not generate the xorg.conf file. At least that's what I am concluding. I go through the steps, reboot the system and boot only to a command prompt. Navigating to /etc/X11/ there is no xorg.conf and I have to copy xorg.conf.install to xorg.conf to get back into the Desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVidia GeForce 310M Support

Jan 28, 2010

I recently bought a sony vaio laptop, with nVidia GeForce 310M device.

I am new, and not very good with ubuntu. I downloaded a driver version 185, and installed, after installing which, I could not get any display at all. After trying to repair, in vain, I had to reinnstall the whole system.

I really need the correct drivers. I can see a version 190.42 of nvidia drivers, but that doesnt list my device model number, and so im not sure, whether this should work. Someone, also please tell me how do I repair, if I mess while trying this driver out?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 And Nvidia GeForce 210 - Cannot Recognize The Card

May 6, 2010

I cannot get the restricted Nvidia drivers or the Nouveau drivers to work completely. If the Nouveau drivers are being used (after an "apt-get purge nvidia-*"), the text mode seems to work ok, but the X nouveau driver acts as if it cannot recognize the card. The only way I can get into X is to make sure I have the "nv" driver in the xorg.conf. I can then get into X normally.

If I install nvidia-current, the machine will just lock up at the splash screen. The Xorg.0.log file is zero bytes. I've checked and installing nvidia-current properly blacklists the nouveau drivers and I see no evidence in the messages file that the nouveau drivers tried to load in text mode. In fact, it shows the nvidia driver loading for console mode. I've tried the nouveau.modeset=0 kernel option as well, but that doesn't do anything. This is a fairly new nvidia card, maybe only a couple months old. I think it's been out for quite some time though. But it was working fine under Karmic with the restricted drivers. I really want to get this working as I need full support of the video card.

The resolution displays properly, 1680x1050, but without Nvidia and Graphic acceleration, I can't run my Compiz effects or XBMC. I'm having the exact same issues with 11.04. I ran nvidia-xconfig as root to get an auto gen xorg.conf. No change. GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 integrated graphics card

Debian :: Nvidia GeForce 7050 Not Working In Lenny?

Mar 7, 2010

I just did a fresh install of Debian lenny and I'm having an issue with the display driver. The system is defaulting to 1600x1200 and it's not allowing me to change it to a lower resolution. The PC has a Nvidia geForce 7050 display card and the monitor I bought with the machine goes up to 1366x768 resolution. I ran the dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg but nothing happens, it's only giving me options to change the keyboard. There is nothing on the xorg.conf for the monitor settings:

Seletion "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"

Apparently, the install did not picked up the display card automatically. I also looked up the drivers for the adapter and downloaded the nvidia-glx_173.14.09-5_i386.deb file but, don't know how to install it.
