Graphics Card Issue

I have a machine that would not boot up, after solving the boot issue by clearing the CMOS and reinstalling Windows the graphics card is now having problems. When I go into device manager and go into the properties of the graphics card, the device status is as follows-

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other
devices on this system.

What could be causing this?

The graphics card is a NVidia Quadro 2000

Cheers

Did you load CMOS defaults? Are there any other devices that could conflict with the VGA? Are you using the correct driver from NVidia?

It's possible the video card is bad.  Do you have another one you can try to see if that one will work?

I changed the settings in the BIOS from onboard to offboard VGA Priority and now it won't boot to the BIOS again like I had before.

I take it this means a bad video card?

Probably.  The only way to make 100% sure it's the video card is to try it in a known working system.

Have just tried the graphics card in another machine and it worked fine. So this then presumably narrows it down to either the motherboard or the riser card?

Yes.  Most likely it's the motherboard as a riser card is usually just a straight through connector.

We have life, I reseated the riser card and now we have output, I have a feeling that it has something to do where the monitor is plugged into on startup as now it has disabled the onboard adapter in windows which it hadn't before.

Thanks for your help
