Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 pro Problem?

Q: Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 pro Problem?

I have the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 pro video card and i want to install a game but the video card has to be in 256 color mode and in Windows i can only go to 32 bit what can i do? Any comments or posts would be great! Thank YOU!

A: Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 pro Problem?

Just to be clear, 32-bit is actually 16,777,216 colors, so its much more then 256 which is just 256 colors. So for 256 you need to lower the color depth not increase it.

I have a nvidia riva tnt2 model 64/model 64 pro pci bus videocard.
The other day I bought the follow up of MOH (sorry forgot the name because returning it to the store)but ofcource you already see the problem rightaway:error log file of the game told me the card was missing out on some functions.Can this card be updated so "heavy duty games won't be a problem in the future?(il2/fb-wolvenstein-cfs2 run good though!)

Thanx for listening!

A:nvidia riva tnt2 model 64/model 64 pro update wanted can get the latest drivers for the card, but it won't help that much, because it's a TNT2...and PCI....

If you wanted to play newer games, you'd have to get a new video card....but if you're running a PCI video card right now, then it may not be worth it...check if you have an AGP slot, is should be above the PCI slots on the motherboard, and slightly offset from them...if you have an AGP slot, then that's good, because you could get a good video card...but if you don't, you'll probably be better off getting a whole new system rather than just upgrading the video.

I recently reformatted my computer's harddrive, and I've been working on getting everything back to it's normal working order. I'm having issues with my video card. It should be installed correctly, I haven't taken it out at all, and it worked a while before the reformat. I think I have the correct driver installed (This one).

But when I plug the monitor into the video card's plug, the monitor won't show anything, it's just blank with the little light, normally green, glowing orange. When I go to the System Information, the only video card that shows up is the one on the motherboard.

Am I using the correct driver? Any other possible solutions?

A:nVidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 issues

G'day Redalert95, I gather you have onboard video and that is working but your card is not. It is not a good idea to plug video leads if the machine is running, it could quite easily kill something.
It is possible that you may need to disable the onboard video in BIOS to allow the daughter card to operate.
This makes it odd that it may have changed from previous settings which were apparently working OK.
If this might be correct it may be pertinent to replace the battery at this time before going any further.
Your board manual BIOS settings should help determine what is happening. In some machines if you plug in a video card the onboard is automatically disabled, but your note does not infer this to be the case, therefore it seems you are going to have to carefully follow the BIOS set instructons in the manual. You likely have an onboard enable somewhere. The LED showing orange instead of green simply indicates no information is being received by the monitor.
You should not need any driver to be loaded to give your card operation for the monitor to operate in a basic mode.
The proper driver will only give the thing all the colours and abilities you are used to normally seeing.
Be extremely careful and ensure the power lead is removed anytime you plug items like cards, and ensure your follow antistatic rules.
Cheers, qldit.

I'm putting a new motherboard in my PC (Asrock p4v88) and in the instructions for the board is a note (do not use a 3.3v AGP on the AGP slot of this board). I hope to fit my old video card into the new mthbrd, it is a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 64 PRO. I haven't a clue what the voltage is of my video card. Can I fit this old card in or do I go out and purchase a new video card of a known voltage?

Thank you

I don't recommend using that card in that machine. Not only is there a risk of it damaging the slot, it's also an incredibly old and slow card, if your new motherboard has onboard video it is likely faster than that TNT2-M64.

If you are still using this old video card in your Windows XP desktop(like I am in one of mine), the NVIDIA ForceWare 61.77 and 66.93 drivers are the ones that you want to install and use. If you try to install and use the 71.84, 71.89, or newer versions, they will NOT install. I have done some experimenting and have confirmed this.

I have purchased a Graphic card PALIT DAYTONA nVIDIA RIVA TNT2 M64.

I am going to install it in GIGABYTE P4 Titan GA-8IRX, REV: 2.0, DDR RAM, motherboard. This motherboard support only AGP 4x (1.5V) card due to Intel 845 chipset cant support AGP 2x(3.3V).

nVIDIA RIVA TNT2 M64 card has a jumper port JP1 which is open. Is it AGP 4x mode by default? Or I have to set jumper to make it AGP 4x.

Please suggest me how I install the card in the above-mentioned main board. I am waiting for your advice soonest possible.

i can't even bet a boot with a nvidia riva tnt2 model 64 w/8mb ram on a MainBoard TXpro-II or a knock-off replica thereof. funny thing is: the card workes fine in another comp with a diff mobo (this one, a spearfish with a xeon 450 pentium 2) and to add to insult, a couple of old junk video cards WILL work in the TX-proII. i also have an Aopen socket 7 mobo i could use for this system but the exact same story applies: the junk video cards work in it but not the tnt2 card which i just bought. by junk video cards i mean they have bad memory chips on them and they have garbage mixed in the on-screen display which makes them kind of useless except for getting a system to boot at all. if it matters they both have S3virge chips on them. running win98 fully updated with ie 5.5 also fully updated. have the latest nvidia drivers avail but of course haven't gotten that far. i did, however remove all the old drivers from device manager and found no nVidia references in the registry to delete at all. any clues would be highly appreciated. thanx, JL

I continue to get intermittent screen messages that I have a problem with my Nvidia graphics driver, occasionally causing shut downs and generating error messages to microsoft.
Although possibly completely unrelated, I also find that my computer shuts down on its own if left alone about 30 minutes, and when turned back on, goes through an odd reboot on its own whcih returns me to where I was before leaving.
The microsoft proposed solution is to download a new driver off the Nvidia website though they also say Nvidia has no solution to the problem. When I go to the Nvidia website, I can find a downloadable driver for XP. ( , though the instructions request me to:
1- disable download accelerator utilities ( How do I find if I have any? I recall loading one at one time, but can't remember if it was on this computer, or find anything suggesting this on my start menu)
2-turn off my virus protection- can do
3- remove Nvidia display drivers from the control panel using the add/remove function.- I can't find any. However, I do find reference to them in my systems folder listing a TNT2 nmodel V dated 4/7/04. It seems odd that I have a listing in the latter, but not in the former. It also seems odd that they would request the removal of the old one first. Will my monitor work if its removed??
Thanks for any assistance

A:Anybody know the power requirements of a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 16mb graphics card?

Couldn't find a quick answer to this but if the "old" machine runs okay as it is then it should have no problem with the TNT2 card. They are a pretty old card and were designed for the machines of the day which (by today's standards) were pretty slow and didn't need a huge amount of power to get them going. I assume the "old" machine has a AGP slot to fit the card into?

Hi, In my PC I have an Nvidia GeForce GTS250 1GB, I am looking at getting a new game 'King Arthur Fallen Champions', the sys req says recomended GPU is a 9800 GT 512MB. I have read in the web that some GTS250's are rebranded 9800's, this leads me to believe that the two cards are on par as far as performance? Am I correct, will my GTS250 have any issues running this game?


A:Nvidia old and new model comparison help please.

If I recall corrctly, the GTS250 is actually just slightly faster than the 9800GT.
Granted, its not by very much.

While that game does need the GPU power, its also more of a CPU heavy game.
But I think you'll be fine with your E8400.

The game isn't nearly as demanding as TW Empire for example.

Have you played the K.A Games before?
I can tell you right now, if you absolutely hate games like Rome Total War, you probably will not like it. If you do enjoy those type of games youll have fun with it.
They are much like a Total War game, only with RP elements. Its set up a bit different, but sorta has that TW gameplay feel to it.
I like it myself , but its not everyones cup of tea.

If you didnt realize, thats a stand alone expansion. Theres also the main game itself (King Arthur the Role Playing War Game)
I do not have the stand alone expansion myself, but I would guess that the full game may have more content.. not 100% sure though.

At any count, I think youll be fine.
You may not be able to have all settings at MAX, like view distances on a battlefield, but you should be able to play the game well.
Your system exceeds the Min requirement, and much closer to recommended.

One thing you might try but it's a strech, download sisoft sandra and run the benchmark program, once in awhile it will show a problem and how to fix it. I haven't used it for a long time but it use to have a diagnostic that would check the systme bus, agp bus, etc.

I'm running Win 8.1 64 bit.
Both of my screens are the same model from the same company.
I have an Asus motherboard and an Asus graphics card.
The one screen is hooked up to the graphics card with HDMI
and the other with a mini displayport cable.

When I try to use the Cleartype tuner or a program like QuickGamma, I can't tell which
screen I am tuning because both the screens have the same name!

Can I change the name of the screens?
For example from "Dell U2415" and "Dell U2415"
to "Dell U2415 left side" and "Dell U2415 right side"

Most grateful for your help.

A:Both my screens are the same model and this is a problem

Windows' own Cleartype tuner lets you choose which monitor you are tuning on. Can't you see the changes happening on the monitor you are tuning on ?

Good day all. I am having a problem with an HP Officejet Model 710 on a Dell Dimension XPS-R450, running Windows 98 first edition.

The problem is... that I follow the instructions on the HP CD, my printer port is set to "ECP printer port [LPT1], my HP software says that's what port it is assigned to, but when I try to print a test page, it says it is disconnected, and reports a "low level" error.

I just performed a continuity check on the cable to verify it was ok. The printer/fax/copier/scanner comes on and does its self test with no errors, it just seems it doesn't see the LPT1 port.

Any suggestions? Can I set this manually in the windows registry?

Appreciate any help at all, I've been battling this thing for a week now.

I have dsl from ATT. Unfortunately, instead of getting 3 mb up, I get ~300 kbs. I realized my connection drastically speeds up after rebooting my Bitstream 5100 dsl modem. After some time (from 10 minutes to a few hours), however, it slows down again.

Do you have any ideas on how to solve it or what new modem to get (the cheaper the better)?

This is my first posting. I purchased five ASUS P4PE motherboads equipped computers as tool controllers in our laboratory at a semiconductor electrical laboratory. Four exhibited passive heat sinks falling off the Intel 845PE Memory Controller Hub (MCH) otherwise known as northbridge controller. This problem is identical to the Tech Spot posting on January 24,2005. Obviously, ASUS has a manufacturing solder defect in the through motherboard clips that permit the passive heat sink to be attached to the motherboard. One heat sink fell off and shorted the adjacent ASUS accelerated graphics port (AGP card). A problem case code has been opened with ASUS. This case code number is WTM2007030449417942

Did you ever get anywhere with asus on this issue? I just had the same thing happen to me and it appears to have fried my board.

Hello Forum,

I have a SONY DRC-TRV22 HandyCam connected to my system via IEEE 1394 (FireWire). I know that Windows 7 does not support the device connected via USB. For some reason the IEEE card (SIIG 3-port 1394 (FireWire) I/O card Model NN-300012-S6) is recognized by the system, but the device (Camcorder) is not. I also have a SONY external CD-ROM drive connected to the same IEEE card. This device is recognized intermittently (sometimes it shows up under system devices, sometimes it does not). Assuming the connecting cables are good, and the connections secure, why doesn?t Windows recognize my Camcorder, and why the intermittent recognition of the CD-ROM?
My OS is Windows 7 64 bit, my motherboard is a ?GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard?. Has anyone come across a similar situation where Windows 7 does not recognize IEEE connected devices, does anyone have a solution?? ?Thanks!

A:SONY HandyCam Model# DRC-TRV22 IEEE Interface Problem with Windows 7

I would try seeing if there are updated drivers for the firewire connection either off of sony's support site; and/or your motherboard manufacturers site which may provide a solution to the issue. Especially if it does not want to connect via usb; which in reality it should as most digital camcorders now a days use usb for a connection. While checking for fire wire drivers; i would also check for drivers for the usb to see if you can get it to work with usb.

I bought this router because of favorable comments here and because of its VPN capability. But first I want to setup remote management and that's giving me a headache.

I just updated the firmware and it says the level is V1.0.7.2_1.1.93.

In the Remote Management setup dialog (via I clicked the box to turn on remote management. I told it to allow any ol' IP address. And I gave it a port number which I don't think is blocked by my ISP (let's say 12345).

The router is installed at NewHouse and I determine the IP address by asking my browser " what is my IP address?"

If I direct my browser to NewHouseIpAddress:12345 I get an immediate error message "This site can't be reached."

Thinking I might have chosen a port blocked by my ISP I also tried NewHouseIpAddress:80 (a port which my IP claims to block) and ... I got into the router's login dialog!!!

I don't expect anyone here can explain why my ISP is not blocking port 80 which they claim to block. But I hope someone can explain why my specified port for remote management does not work.

I will appreciate any help/ideas/sympathy/pointers.

Thanks, Bob

I have an Elitegroup motherboard with SiS620 chipset, and I've installed a pci nvidia tnt2 m64, but now lockups occur in 3d games, and sometimes in the Windows GUI.

Sometimes alt+ctrl+del will get me out of it in the GUI; it gives me a blue "system busy" screen and then I can click cancel on the close program dialog and everything's fine.

Sometimes it stays locked when I hit alt+ctrl+del, and it always stays locked in games.

I'm running the detonator 5.13 beta drivers, which are said to tbe the most stable. I have tried the latest drivers (12.xx), but with those the problem is worse because once it locks alt+ctrl+del never works, and the lockups are more frequent.

I've tried adjusting latency timing, looked for conflicts and tested power settings and everything seems fine... what could be the problem?


A:nvidia tnt2 m64

Wondering how you disabled your sis chip, this from the sis web site about adding pci card to a 620 system

If you add on a PCI VGA card on a AGP/Super AGP VGA based board (like 5600+6326, 530, 620), you
will need to set up the display priority. Every board maker has her way to do the setting. Some of them will implement
it in the BIOS, in the item "Integrated Peripheral","Initial Display First", you can choose "PCI slot". However some other
makers do the setting by jumpers, you need to refer to your manual or contact the makers for further help. The best
solution is to ask help from your board maker. However if you don't know who the maker is, you can track from the
store where you buy the computer, or ask any local pc dealer if they know there's a way to help you. After you
finish the hardware part, you can remove the our vga driver from your system. Please go to "Control
Panel","Add/Delete programs" to remove the driver. Please don't care about the exclamation mark that appears in the
Device Manager, if you have already install your second card successfully. It won't influence your VGA display.

I had purchasd the card with 32 MB. So does this mean that in Windows only 16 MB is used ? How can I correct this error ?


A:Nvidia TNT2 M64

some of your ram might be should pickup the whole thing or not at all.I have a tnt pro 2 with 32mb.
try removing it puting your old card back in restart then shut down and put the tnt back in and make sure it is in evenly and firmly pushed in if it's not you could have problems.and then restart again.reinstall the drivers.
All internal work must be done with power off.
if you changed from pci to agp make sure that enabled is set in the BIO for AGP. It should work but it is a little finiky if it wasn't pushed in just leave the case off untill you get it right because you might have to remove it a few times untill you get it right. good luck

Hey, guys. What NVIDIA driver (Detonator or Forceware) should I use under Windows ME with a Riva TNT2 Pro to get the best quality and performance? I am asking this because I noticed that (under RPGMaker 2000), using the original Windows drivers showed no flicker. But, when I used the 45.23 drivers, sure they were fast in Direct3D applications. But in RPGMaker, flicker starts to appear. It's not so bad that it is unplayable, it's just really annoying. THANKS IN ADVANCE!


You should use ancient Detonators. Something in the 1x or 2x series maybe.

you could always return the game. have you actually tried the game, and seen it fail. if so, you'll need a newer video card.

OS Dual boot WIN98SE/WIN2K
384MB Ram

OK, here goes. I have a 32MB Nvidia TNT2 Ultra video card. However MOST of the time, the system won't recognize it as anything other than a standard VGA card. Every now and then it'll actually show as the correct card and when that happens it works GREAT (for a while), then all the sudden it's back to standard VGA again.

This happens in 98SE and 2K, I have 2 older Rage cards that I have no trouble with. Unfortunately I DON'T have another machine that I can put this card in right now.

Have all the latest drivers (that I can find) for everything, problem has persisted through a reformat and reload.

Any help at all appreciated.

(edited for spelling)

A:NVIDIA TNT2 Ultra shows as standard VGA

If your system is not HAVING issues with your other cards, then your TNT2 is the cause.... its an odd problem you have.

Hi Guys,

First time here and I'm more desperate than a virgin on his wedding day. I just purchased Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield (hoping to split a few wigs today). I found out that it does not support my video card (gulp!) Is there a patch or anything that I can do besides buying a new video card?


A:Raven Shield vs. Nvidia TNT2 Pro AGP Card

Unless someone has made a third-party patch that somehow simulates hardware T&L, then no, I'm afraid the only way to get it to work is by getting a newer video card.

Hi - I'm new to the boards and have a question I hope someone can help me with. I have an old Dell Dimension 4100 that is running windows me and it has an nvidia tnt 2 video card. My son recently purchased Call of Duty and it doesn't seem to work on this system. I keep getting an error message that I need to upgrade my video card. I think I need a pci express card, but I'm not sure so my question is how do I figure that out and can anyone recommend a video card that is not too expensive? The system is 6 years old and I really don't feel like investing a ton of cash into it. It does have 256 mb of ram, that I know as well as an pentium 3 processor, 20 gig hard drive (small I know in this day and age) and is running @ 933mhz. Thanks in advance for the help.


A:Upgrading an nvidia tnt2 card on an old dell 4100

You need an AGP video card.Given the age of your computer you probably only have an AGP 4x slot so I would recomend an ATI Radeon 9200 or 9250. anything more powerfull than that wouldn't give you any significant improvement due to the speed of your processer and slot. upgradeing your ram to 512 mb wouldnt be a bad idea either.
Video card:


regardless of what video card and ram you get that game will probably only run on medium settings due to your processer.

ps:If you would like to upgrade your HDD:

Title says it all.

Any info about how to do it, such as :

1. software needed
2. cooling need + how to fit it
(3. Possible 3D Mark score)

Also I have a Winfast Geforce 2 MX 100/200. Any similar info about clocking that would also be appreciated.

The computer that runs my TNT2 is a custom made PC. It has an Abit KT7A Raid, 256 MB of Ram and a 1200Mhz unclocked Thunderbird AMD. The card on it at the moment on gets a score of 700 in my 3D Mark tests.

The computer that runs on my Geforce 2 is a Dan computer with a Pentium 1.5 Ghz with 256 mb of ram and a new 845 chipset motherboard. This graphics card gets just under 1000 points at the moment in my 3D Mark tests.

Thanks for any info!

I'm helping a less-technical friend with an issue on her older Thinkpad, which she was given by a boss.  Before I ask any specific questions though, I obviously need to know which model she has so that I can post to the right category. I'm not very familiar with Thinkpads myself so forgive my questions. (I have looked in the FAQ but didn't see what I need there.)
I asked her the model number and she found this on the computer:
Type 2373 - 7CU S/N [deleted for privacy]
I googled a bit but Type 2373 does not appear to be a model number because I've found T40, T41 and T42 (at least) that all indicate Type 2373. T40, T41 and T42 are model numbers, right? How do I get the model number from the information I've provided? Or do I need more information, like a serial number? I'll be seeing her tomorrow and can gather anything I need at that point. She says the laptop has an IBM logo, not a Lenovo logo, so I assume this is a fairly old model, dating back before IBM sold off its PC hardware business.
Also, may I suggest that determining what model you have should be added to the FAQ? It seems like a very fundamental thing that you absolutely have to know to get any further information.
Also, may I request that this post NOT be moved to a more appropriate place (if there is one) until I've had a chance to read the answer to my question, otherwise I may not find it. I'll acknowledge the answer when I see it so you know it's safe to move it to the p... Read more

I had a post on here talking about my computer failing, finding out it was the vcard, i am looking for another. My card is a evga 7800GTX 256 (model 528). Can i use a model 525 (said to be clocked 20Mhz lower)? They are both the same GPUs, and some sites says that it doesnt matter as long as the gpus are the same, but what can i expect with the small speed difference? Would they both have to operate at 430MHz? or should i try to overclock the lesser one?

A:about sli (using same gpu, different model)

Last I read from nVidia, they had to be the same exact card, that may have changed though. I thought I had seen a thread here that said they had changed it so they could be different but with a performance decrease..............I can't seem to find that thread though.
