new video card causes hp pavilion xl773 to lockup during use
Posted on 2005-02-24
I installed a GeForce FX4000 into an HP Pavilion XL773 with 384mb ram, celeron 700mhz, win2k os, and an ASUS MEW-AM mainboard. I hae updated the Phoenix Bios to 2.1 (5/1/01). The Bios says I can choose to disable the onboard video, but the option is not listed my only choices are 512k or 1mb video memory. HP's site states that some older mainboards require a jumber to be set to disable onboard video, but ASUS MEW-AM is jumperless. I disabled the Intel 810 graphics controller though windows device manager, but the system still locks up during use (sometimes during bootup). This requires a hard shutdown when this happens. Any Ideas?
