Dell XPS 8900 and NVidia Quadro 2000 compatibility

Q: Dell XPS 8900 and NVidia Quadro 2000 compatibility

Bought an XPS 8900 from Best Buy May 2016. Used as stock config since then as a home CAD machine.
I think it came stock with a GeoForce 730, maybe ?
Had it hooked up to a single Dell monitor via the DVI cable.
I took an NVidia Quadro 2000 2GB video card from an older XPS 8700 that I had installed it in and had been running fine, plug and play, and removed the GeoForce 730 from my new XPS 8900 and installed the Quadro 2000 in the new 8900, expecting no problems.
The Quadro has DVI out and two (2) Displayport out. I tried the DVI, no luck. The tried the Displayport, still no luck. Monitor is asleep, does not respond.
I know this card is a little older, but I am not sure why it would not be supported on the 8900, when I just plug and played it on the 8700, no problem?????
is the NVidia Quadro 2000 not supported for some reason? why?
Is there any way I can make this work ont he XPS 8900?

Hello guys,

I got a nVidia Quadro FX 2000 graphics card.

I was wondering if this graphic card could do a spilt screen so I can do two things at once.

If anyone knows can you get me a step by step tutorial on how to do this, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi joeey.s.
If all you want to do is split the desktop in half with two different apps open and in view, windows will do that.
Right click the taskbar and select "Tile Windows Horizontally\Vertically", depending on your viewing preference.

I have a dell precision M3800 laptop with the quadro 1100M graphics card and the Sony XBR49X830C TV that I'm using as a monitor.  The TV supports 4K @ 60Hz 4:4:4 and I have verified it with another computer.  However, with my M3800 I am only able to get 30Hz, I am using a display adapter to HDMI 2.0 with a HDMI 2.0 cable and have verified that the cable/adapter work at 60 Hz (using another laptop).  
The M3800 supports 4K @ 60Hz with it's built in display but I can' t get 60Hz on this external display, is this a limitation of the graphics card or a driver issue?  I have the latest  drivers of everything though,

Our company has developed and uses a software package that utilises WPF to render 3D content in an XBAP in Internet Explorer.  When I attempt to use this software on the 7710, the 3D content flickers a lot when it is redrawn, making it pretty much unusable.  From the stats that we can get from our application, we can see that the update time for the redraw / present is about 45ms, whereas on most other PCs, even ones utilising the integrated Intel graphics, it is usually about 12ms. 
We have used this software on a large number of PCs without experiencing anything this bad, which is obviously quite disappointing since the laptop should actually be able to display what we are asking it to without any hassles.
As far as I can tell all our drivers for everything on this laptop are up to date.  
We have tried using the NVIDIA control panel to force the laptop to use the High Performance Nvidia Quadro card rather than integrated graphics and it appears to be doing so as we were able to make it display the notification icon in the task bar and that showed that IE was using the Nvidia.

M6700 doesnot show anything on the screen.
here's what i did:
Installed windows 10 in UEFI enabled and Legacy ROM enabled.
After installation, Secure boot.
Blank Screen Now.
Tried reset by removing CMOS battery. no luck
Need Help.

A:Dell M6700 Nvidia Quadro K4000M No display After Secure Boot

So i managed to solve the problem.
There are issues with K4000m running in secure boot. You must not disable legacy boot rom.
If you have no display at all here is the painful solution:
Make sure you can open the notebook and put it back together again. (Use an anti-static band etc). remember the screw type and locations etc. refer to a manual or take it to a technician.
So, you will have top open up the whole laptop. remove the Graphics card, remove the screen connectors and connect the laptop to an external display via d-sub (VGA) port. You have a display now. Go to the BIOS and disable secure boot and enable Legacy boot ROM. 
Put back the graphics card and everything is back in place.
Recommended BIOS: A15, Still dont use secure boot.
I think the K4000m did not have an EFI rom boot. So hence no display.
Hope it helps anyone having the same problem.

I'm re-installing my Dell Precision T1500 desktop work station changing from Windows 7 Professional 32-bit to 64-bit.
Can anyone explain if there is a reason I should install the nVidia Quadro FX580 driver 191.75 available by Dell
downloads since May, 2010 instead of more recent 267.05 driver available by nVidia downloads?
I know that installing manufacturer specific drivers is important when you have an OEM-version of a product installed or
an integrated graphics adapter/sound card but in my case the Quadro FX580 GPU has been added in post-upgrade
out of a retail box so it should be supported by the most recent Nvidia driver. Or?
On the other hand I got the following answer when scanning for a driver a few minutes ago on the nVidia website:
"Installed driver: 191.75
Your PC currently has the latest driver installed for your GPU. No driver update is necessary at this time."
Why isn't nVidia directing me to the most recent driver?
How can the 191.75 driver be the latest driver when there have been several more recent drivers launched by nVidia
for my graphics adapter since May, 2010?
Please tell me what to do. I would prefer to install the correct driver from start as experience shows
that replacing a GPU driver could prove to be an agonizing experience... 

A:Which driver?: Dell Precision Desktop T1500 nVidia Quadro FX580 512Mb

Hi Andylindy,

Greetings all. I recently sold my Nvidia Quadro FX4000 256MB AGP graphics card on Ebay to a guy in Germany (I am in UK). Used the standard Ebay description tool which displayed it as PNY NVidia Quadro FX4000 256mb AGP card.

My question is: are there 2 varients of this card ie Nvidia and PNY? The guy is stating that I have sent him an Nvidia Card as opposed to a PNY card and is requesting a refund.

I sold the card in good faith (using the Ebay description tool) thinking that there was only one varient and the picture I took is exactly like the PNY varient too so I thought I was selling one in the same?

I would appreciate your views guys. I think maybe this guy is trying it on?

Many thanks.

I've read Quadro's are stable and highly recommended for CAD, etc workstations (not for gaming) and gaming cards are obviously better for gaming. I am looking to setup two separate dual output video cards in a new machine. It will be used primarily for streaming real time financial info/web surfing (no CAD nor any 3D modeling) with a secondary use of gaming (not important for me to run top games at top resolutions-average is fine). Should I look at getting Quadros or game cards. I am leaning toward the game cards like Nvidia 8600GT, etc as they are lower price and seems like if they can run games fast/no problem-why wouldn't they easily be able to handle business applications? Quadros seem to cost more and can mainly only be used for business apps?

I've always shadowed the forums, but never had to actually ask my own question before, so bear with me a moment;

Normaly I'd throw out a system info report, but I can't actually access the PC in question at the moment, so I'll have to roll with what I know. Here goes.

I'm running a stock Dell Precision 390 desktop with an Nvidia Quadro card and running Windows XP. At the moment it's connected to my Bush LCD via the stock Dell-VGA splitter and it runs fine... sort of. Before the main problem there is a small irk I have with the system itself in that it can't seem to make up its mind which ports and cables it wants to work with. Each and every time I update my drivers (I know that there haven't been new ones released in a while, but there are two [one with OpenGL but older, one without but newer] that I find myself needing to switch between now and again) the port on the tower that i need to plug the splitter into OR which of the VGA split-cables i need to plug into the LCD. If that doesn't make a whole load of sense don't worry too much, it's just a secondary problem that I'd like very much to know if there's a way to force it to always use the same port/cable.

Onto the main event, however: along with the VGA splitter supplied, I was also given a HDMI splitter, however not once in all the tweaking and changing of drivers have I been able to get the LCD to recieve a signal. I wouldn't even be wanting to sw... Read more

The new Quadro CX card has been designed to deliver 192 CUDA parallel processor cores, a total of 1.5GB of GDDR3 memory with 384-bit memory interface. The memory bandwidth is specified at 76.8GB/s and, as you might expect from such a monster of a card, it comes with some hefty power requirements for a maximum of 150W. The card itself is equipped with a dual-slot cooling system, and provides just one dual link DVI port. Additional specifications include support for NVIDIA's SLI and CUDA technologies, as well as for DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0.

I have an nVidia Quadro in my desktop here at work, just installed Windows 7 Pro 32Bit (trying all the flavors before rolling out to prospective clients).

I can get multiple displays running but I've encountered a problem that has driven me to the breaking point.

From my onboard VGA, I can get full resolution and a great picture. From my Quadro all I get in dual dispaly (not the full 3 or 4 I want) and when it does display on two screens together, it's mirrored.

The display options are only seeing the monitors and Generic PnP and it detects the two both as monitor "1". Their resolution is stuck to 1024x768.

Here's the stranger part: In my Hardware Profiles, it has 2 Standard VGAs listed in Device Manager and 2 "Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family". One of the "Intel" chip and one of the "Standard VGA" each are showing that the devices could not start.

I've uninstalled the drivers for all 4, rebooted, removed them from device manager and even switched my BIOS to boot from the onboard instead of Auto (Dell BIOS).

To finally confound things more, when I do reboot, guess what displays on the BIOS? QUADRO!

My BIOS obviously recognizes and identifies the card, but 7 is just throwing it down. I've tried the new Forceware drivers as well as every driver nVidia had listed for Windows 7 32bit for every model of NVS Quadro with no avail, it just says that no matching hardware is found.

I think this is a windows seven configuration problem as in a previous post where someone wanted to run 2 displays from 1 card in PCI-e and 1 from a pci slot. Yet would get an error 10 message pci bridge to pci bridge. Yet he could run this setup in XP. My first thought for you is to load the display driver that is showing the PnP display, as well as the drivers for the other 2 displays. but if the graphics chips are not compatible your going to have issues. onboard VGA chip verus Quadro chip displaying at different refresh rates and resolutions. Of course with the new ATI Hd 5870 you can run 3 displays from 1 card 2 dvi and 1 hdmi, all for around 380.00.

This is a workstation that I bought used (eBay) to run high-end engineering graphics. It came with the NVidia Quadro 2 Pro board (64 MB) which was an OEM option. I recently bought the Quadro FX 1100 (128 MB) used (also eBay) for the additional 64 MB to bring video up to snuff for the graphics I want to run.

The Quadro FX 1100 installed just fine, and I noticed improvement in video performance from the added RAM. When I got curious and started really digging thru the info in the NVidia View program that comes with the drivers, however, I noted that the board is running at PCI X 0 speed, rather than at AGP 4.

I don't know what the Quadro 2 Pro was running at before the upgrade, as I hadn't paid a whole lot of attention to the graphics before I did the upgrade. I did reinstall the Quadro 2 Pro card and drivers, though, and the Quadro 2 Pro also runs as PCI X 0 now. It probably was running at the same speed before I installed the Quadro FX 1100.

Hello all,

I need to set up a computer with 5 different screens for a restaurant menu. Only images will be displayed on 5 tv.

I made some research online to find one or two graphic cards that could connect 5 tvs on it.

I found a great Nvidia video card with 4 display slots that is very cheap! (see link below). My idea is now to buy a computer that have a normal graphic card and to install this second card which mean that they will be 5 different outputs!

I did some research of which motherboard I need and apparently I need a 'pci express x16' motherboard with a free slot. I also saw that both cards need to be in the same family (NVS I guess)

I was wondering if someone could guide me with this ... ideally I would like to buy a computer already made, and just need to insert this card into it to make it work.
Is there someone that could advice me on a computer where this card would be compatible? I am looking for a 'cheap' one and can't spend a lot of money on it.

If anyone got any advices or link for a computer that would work, please let me know!

Many thanks,

I have recently upgraded my Windows 7 64-Bit desktop with a Nvidia Quadro NVS 450 card which is connected to 4 x Dell U2410 Monitors via displayport. I have a Gigabyte P55-UD3R motherboard with Corsair 520 watt PSU.

Since completing the upgrade last friday I have been having intermittent problems with the display turning red/black and then the system becoming unresponsive, and ultimately receiving a blue screen of death.

I have tried a few things to resolve it including downloading the latest drivers, without success. Some days the computer works most of the day without a problem but then other times it crashes more frequently. I use this computer for work so can't afford for it to unstable.

Before the Nvidia Quadro NVS 450 Card I used a HIS HD4670 which was ran smoothly for the last year.

Tried following the instructions regarding performance report and all I got was a popup saying that the computer was collecting data for 60 seconds but that went on for over 10 minutes.

Appreciate any advice or suggestions to help me resolve this. Thanks.

I recently installed an Nvidia Quadro CX card under Windows 7 (risky, I know). Although I'm using the latest drivers from Nvidia, I can't get the second monitor to display through the displayport-to-DVI adapter.

I can swap cables all day long and each monitor works fine with the DVI connector; it's just that nothing is detected when plugged into the second output (displayport).

Has anyone else run into this problem with Windows 7 build 7000?

Sony Qualia video projector, game PC with ASUS P4C800 / Intel P4 3.2 Ghz and a nVidia Quadro FX3000 graphics card. The problem I?m having is an image that has an almost sandpaper like look, not really pixelized but sort of splotchy and incorrect color.

I?m using the DVI-I output of the FX3000 and the DVI-D input of the Qualia. Following Sony direction I am setting the projector?s input to DVI Video GBR and the FX3000 output to 1920x1080. When the computer boots up the projector senses the signal and switches to its? video memory 5 which is 1920x1080. The image is undistorted 16:9 but with the quality issues described above. The projector DVI input works fine with other video sources and I?ve tried other DVI cables. Using the HDMI input with a DVI to HDMI adapter produces the same results.

Does anybody know what type of signal the FX3000 outputs? Is it Digital or Analog? Does it have the ability to output Digital? I?ve tried the online tech support for the nVidia card but so far no response.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I downloaded the Nvidia drivers+installer twice to rule out a bad installer but neither work. They run for a while and then fail when installing. The monitor used to flicker on and off (for the new driver) and then it would revert back to the included MS driver.

Since I have to disable/re-enable the gpu often, I would much prefer it if I could do it without having to reboot. The system is Elitebook 8760w running Windows 10 x64. I have tried a number of drivers both from HP and Nvidia sites. I have also tried installing only the graphics driver. The result remains the same. No option to disable the GPU in normal mode. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm trying to decide which graphics card to get for our new office computers. We've always used NVIDIA's Quadro line in the past and those have worked very well because NVIDIA provides drivers specifically designed for use with AutoCAD (we do both 2D & 3D). Now ATI has drivers out designed to work with AutoCAD, and the V4800 card supports up to three 30" monitors while the 600 only supports two. It would be really nice to have that third monitor without having to add another GPU, but I'm hesitant because I don't know how the drivers from the two companies compare. Every comparison I could find was comparing the FirePro line without their new drivers. So I have two questions:

1) Which card is the better one spec-wise? They seem to be talking two different languages on their websites, so I'm really having a hard time comparing them. I know very little about graphics cards.

2) Which card is better once the AutoCAD drivers have been accounted for?

Again, our primary application is using AutoCAD (both 2D & 3D). We also use Photoshop (2D only) and Acrobat extensively, but from what I understand, unless you're doing 3D Photoshopping, the GPU doesn't help out with that. These machines will not be used for gaming and we're only interested in professional-grade graphics cards d... Read more

States here to use 2560 x 1400 you need to use display port.
DisplayPort to DVI-D (Single Link)

industry standard cables can be used to
drive digital displays at resolutions up to
1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz
Your monitor has a display port connector. To utilise full resolution you need that.

Were you using onboard before? If so, you need to enable discrete GPUs or disable on-board video in the BIOS of the computer. Then it should work. If not, check for any power plugs that have come undone and if that still doesn't work, the card is most likely dead.

Hi I made a big mistake in buying a new Dell 8900 XPS with intel i7 6gen 16gb ram 2TB HD 7200 and a Radeon R7-370 Video card. When I got it and really started to look at it I found it was made over a year ago. I want to upgrade to an Nvidia 980TI since the video card in system is ***, however I see it has a tiny 480 w poser supply. Of course Dell has no documentation as to the size of the power supply so I do not know what size to buy. I asked good old Dell sales only to be told, sorry <ADMIN NOTE: Profanity removed as per TOU> you 480, but we sell you a different video card that will go with you 480 watts.
Form reading a few answers here, it would appear the sales Dell Sales Delpt. has really gone downhill and do not know what they are talking about. I think.
My questions:
1.What dimension power supply can I put in the XPS 8900 case
2. What is the best power size I should get? Nvidia recommends 600W+ I see at their site.
3. Will the Nvidia 980TI fit in the case to replace the Radeon R7-370. Brand spankings new computer and the R7-370 is not even made any more. I used to love Dell

I purchased an XPS 8900 I7-6700, 8Gb, 1Tb, NVidia 730 video on May 6.  Out of the box the system is not stable.  Connected up to my 4K monitor the video periodically blinks out (flashes a black screen), I get sporadic Window errors "The video driver has stopped responding" and it takes over 7 minutes to reboot (Shutdown and restart).
I did a reload of the system image of Windows 10.  The problems persists.
I checked the bios version (it shipped with the latest bios), installed a fresh copy of Windows 10, made sure I had the latest Nvidia drivers.  The problem persists.
I switched to the Integrated Intel graphics and the system is rock solid stable.  I tried swapping a NVidia 980 card in... the system is back to being completely flaky again.
My conclusion is Dell has a BIOS conflict with NVidia cards.  Did I miss something?  I found many posts on the net about similar XPS / NVidia issues but they seem to be filtered from the Dell support website.

Hi, I've just purchased two LED monitors to run off my Nvidia Quadro fx 580. I have two operating systems on my computer. On OS A the dual monitor system works just as it should, but on OS B the second monitor, RHS, is not behaving correctly.

To describe: If I track my mouse pointer on OS A from the left hand side of the left monitor to the right side of the right monitor, there is no gap in the middle, as soon as the pointer leaves the left monitor it shows up on the right monitor. However, on OS B, when I track the mouse pointer across the left screen, when it leaves the left monitor it does not show up on the right monitor for some tracking distance, about half screen width.

The result is that, in program material which should show up full size in the right hand monitor, I only see half the right hand side of it. The left hand side of that 'page' is lost in that middle void (where the mouse disappears in the tracking example).

Hard to describe, but maybe someone who has experienced this might understand.

As it all works fine in OS A, I know it's not the monitor settings, I expect it's a setting I need to change in the Nvidia control panel. I've had a play around with no luck.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Hi all, I'm looking at quotes for a Dell PW670 workstation and there are two different graphics cards listed in these quotes.
Now, my question is about the dual monitor capability of these two cards:

nVidia Quadro FX 1400 :
# Single or dual analog VGA support for monitors and analog flat panels using DVI-VGA adapters
# Single or dual digital DVI support for digital flat panels

ATI FireGL V3100
# Single or dual analog VGA support for monitors and analog flat panels using DVI-VGA adapters
# Single DVI-I support for digital flat panels

The problem I have is the FireGL spec about dual VGA support for monitors and flat panels using DVI-VGA adapters. I'm not sure what kind of connector is on the back of this card? Only DVI? and are the DVI-VGA adapters reliable?

I understand that DVI is the latest type of flat panel monitor out there. But are there VGA flat LCD monitors still being sold? Will they be phased out soon?
Im not really up to date on the latest hardware so this has me stumped.

The big issue between the two cards is price, the nVidia is 500 dollars (Can.) more than the ATI.

The computer is not used as a gaming computer, its just for data and graphics on some interface software. There is no 3D requirement for its application.
I read that it is a good 2D card somewhere but now I see it's listed as an entry level 3D card.

Please do not suggest other cards, I am really only trying to decide between these two.

NVIDIA released its line of Quadro graphics cards based on Fermi architecture. NVIDIA issued five products with the Quadro 4000 has 2GB of GDDR5 memory and 256 stream processors (SP). Also, the Quadro 5000 has 2.5GB VRAM and 352 stream processors, whereas the Quadro 5000M, for mobile workstations, boasts 2GB GDDR5 and 320 SP. The shader processor count hints to the GF104 GPU being used, which is the latest update of Fermi running in the GeForce GTX 460 as well.
Then in the more powerful segment a GF100 silicon wazs used as the Quadro 6000 has a good 6GB graphics memory (!) and 448 stream processors. And then get this, the Quadro Plex, the most powerful by far, with a massive 12GB of memory and 896 SP -- obviously empowered by two GPUs.
"We have built engines like AXE to enable the creation of next-gen applications. When you couple these technologies with our Fermi architecture, the result is a new Quadro family that's exponentially better than anything the market has ever seen " said Jeff Brown, general manager, professional solutions group at Nvidia.

This is my first time posting, so sorry if this is in the wrong section, I didn't see one for a rack workstation.
I've given a description on my problems below, for anyone who'll bother helping.

A few years back, I got a refurbished Precision R5500 with dual Quadro 6000s. I noticed the driver was outdated, and updated it. Unfortunately, when I did so, the driver would crash several times a day, with no clear indication of why or when. It was several months before we figured out what driver was previously on it (266.87), and reinstalled that. It's still running mostly stable.
However, this driver downgrade caused an issue for me. I'm a gamer, and apparently, version 266.87 does not run Frostbite-based games correctly. For example, Battlefield 3 and Need for Speed The Run both have an invisible floor.
I'd pretty much given up on looking for solutions a couple years ago, but yesterday, I decided to give it another shot. I quickly found a thread on the old Dell TechCenter, which you can view here, where users had found a solution. They had updated the VBIOS to what appears to be version 70.0.6F.0.2. My current version is, so it'd make sense that if mine was updated, I'd be able to update the drivers without them crashing.
Problem is, there are no links to the update on the web; at least, not that version. The closest thing I've found is on HP's website, which you can view here, but I get the feeling that's only for HP compu... Read more

A:nVidia Quadro 6000 Video BIOS Update

No response after a week. To be expected; this is a rare issue, by the looks of it.

I've tried the HP update at this point, via cmd, which simply said "no adapters found that were compatible with this update." Won't do further tests with that, since I don't want to risk anything with the DOS method.
In the wake of the Dell community's help (that's sarcasm), I've been trying to contact people on the thread linked in my previous post - specifically, people who said they could send the update to those who asked for it - to see if they might still have it.

My HP Z220 Base Model Convertible Minitower Workstation has HP 1790 motherboard with Inter core i-7 3770 3.4 GHz CPU and Quadro K600 GPU. I want to change my GPU to be able to play games with GPUs above NVIDIA GTX970 (preferably GTX1080). Will it be possible with a suitable PSU upgrade? Is there any issue which I need to know about? I am worried about possible bottlenecks and driver compatibility issues.

Hi everyone
I already have 3 computers, don't play games but do adobe premiere video editing, no special effects, simple timeine and cut and titles.
I will now start to move around to give some lectures and maybe with video projection, so I'm thinking a lot about connectivity and battery life.
I might do some video editing as well.... so firewire is important but I can get it with a pci card I think.
I've found that devoted video card is better, but expensive.
I've found a second hand Dell 620 with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M for around $500
would it be better than a new Lenovo / Dell with a Laptop Intel GMA X4500 card ???
Anew lenovo/Dell with devoted video card is around $1000
Do I need more power for my use?
And I'm looking for a widescreen model also

What do you think?

I bought an HP Envy 860-121 Desktop in April 2016 , and it came with the Nvidia 970GTX gaming card.I told the store from which I bought it, before I ordered it, that I do  not play games, but make a living drawing in graphics.I want to put a different Nvidia card in the computer, because I am not achieving needed finishes with the 970GTX. I found out from Nvidia, that I must have a Quadro Card for graphics, not a gaming card. I purchased on line an Nvidia Quadro 2000. I installed it, but the computer will not start and I get 3 long beeps then 3 short beeps. I have contacted HP to ask what video cards work in my motherboard and they tell me to call Nvidia. Nvidia says to call HP. Does anyone know where you can go to match your Motherboard with Video cards?

computer:HP XW4100, Win 2000Pro, 2 TFT 17"monitors
graphics: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 with AGP8X

I have no problem using "expended desk top" mode. All windows programs run correctly and can be placed and viewed on either screen.
However attempting to run and view simulatenously a DOS application on one screen and a Win application on the other will only display properly if the DOS application is viewed in the "minimized" mode.
If the DOS application is maximized (Alt+Enter), it seems that my "expended desk top" mode switches to "clone mode". Monitor 1 and 2 now show the same full size DOS screen and this is the problem I would like to resolve.

Is this a hardware/software limitation or am I overlooking something in the set-up to acheive what I am trying to achieve? Any help will be appreciated.

A:NVIDIA Quadro display limitation, DOS & Windows applications

I do believe it is a limitation of the software/hardware. You will have to use that DOS command in a windowed mode. I can't really tell if it's MS or nVidia to blame for that "problem" but you can always try to contact nVidia & tell them about it.

Hi Guys,

Im new here so sorry if this message is unclear.

I am working with a confocal miscroscope connected to a PC. Recently the very old graphics card on it blew and I have had a very hard time finding a replacement. I have ordered two direct replacements and each time they have sent a mis-labeled card. From this i gather its very difficult to obtain new nVIDIA Quadro 4 980xgl cards.

I was wondering if there is an alternative card i could use. I think im not bad with computers however my hardware knowledge is lacking. Unfortunatly the comptuer is currently in use (running a 5 hour experiment i do not wish to interup) so i cannot give you the computer hardware details. If this is required I can post later.

It is for a two monitor set up (currently running on only one). If you need any other details, please ask.

Many Thanks for your help

I put this in the general section, but it is probably more appropriate here.

Just have a issue regarding dual monitors on a windows 7 machine. I will provide as much information as possible:

I recently purchased a cheap graphics card - nVidia Quadro FX 1500 (2 x DVI) to run a dual monitor setup. My original monitor (Acer x243hq), connected to DVI via a VGA-DVI adapter and a newly purchased Samsung BX2440 (connected direct DVI).

Individually the monitor are each capable of a 1920 x 1080 setting, but as soon i plug in both monitors, the Acer resolution blows up and i am unable to see desktop icons and task bar (when it is set to primary, maximised window will be significantly cut of when set to secondary and have a internet browser open).

When i right click and go into "screen resolution", both screens are showing 1920 x 1080, but it is clearly not the case.

Is there any solution for this? I did a search and cant find anything regarding this.

The only solution i have is that the video card is having trouble running both monitors? The specifications however suggests it is capable of this.....

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance!


1. Went into the nVidia control panel, and both setting seem correctl. The primary screen (samsung) to "recommended" (1920 x 1080), the secondary screen to "native" (1920 x 1080).

What are the main differences between a Nvidia Quadro type card (like NVIDIA Quadro FX 370 Video Card - 256MB GDDR2-$109) and the various dual output gaming cards out there (for instance the XFX GeForce 8600 GT XXX Video Card 256MB DDR3-$89)? I am contemplating building a new system for stock trading. Nvidia Quadro are used in workstations I know of but gaming cards seem faster and cheaper for same price-I must be missing something?

I have a Quadro FX 3700M card on my workstation for various CAD programs.. I am searching for a way to perform a software or hardware modification so I can play games and run other programs requiring a GeForce card.

So I could actually run CAD software on the dedicated Quadro, while relying on an externally connected GeForce card for all other media, pics, music, games, etc?

I am looking to upgrade my graphics card on the H8-1214. I have noticed a lot of other people have posted about this, but I just couldn't find what I was looking for. The H8-1214 currenlty has a NVIDIA FX-1800 graphics card installed. I purchased the NVIDIA Quadro M2000 card, to replace it, but cannot get it to work. I was told by NVIDIA that the card I purchased was defective. So I purchased another one and I am having the same problem. The system boots to the HP splash screen, then it goes to a black screen with a blinking cursor. That is as far as I can get. I can't get into the BIOS with the new card installed either. I've read some info about needing a card that is/isn't UEFI compatible...I'm not really sure which one and honestly I'm not really sure what the difference is. Here is a list of all of my current hardware. It appears that this card is just not compatible, but if someone could verify, I would appreciate it. We purchased a new Samsung 34" curved monitor and the card we currently have is sluggish. If the M2000 isn't compatible, I would like a suggestion from the following video cards: Quadro K4200, or M4000. We need to stick with NVIDIA because we use Solidworks drawing software and it needs these types of video cards.  Motherboard: M3970AM-HP (Angelica) CPU: AMD FX-6100  RAM: 10GB of DDR3  Power Supply Wattage: 300 Watts Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

When I install nvidia driver (I have tried several versions including 341.95) it needs restart and then I get black screen during start and sometimes blue screen and it restarts  again. Only thing that will help is to use F8, start windows in safe mode and remove nvidia driver. Then it  again automatically load standard vga graphics driver. It uses only 16MB of memory, allows to run in 1920x1080 mode, but nothing more. Windows experience index is 1 due to graphics. What can I do to start running my nvidia quadro 4000m? Thank you very much.

Several months ago I installed Vista Ultimate x64 as a 2nd OS (with XP Pro kept as the previous OS) in a dual boot system. There have been major problems with the display driver of the Vista OS from day-1 of the installation. I initially thought that improved nVidia x64 drivers would solve the problem when they were released but none have and I've tried them all, including the Betas. I'm currently running nVidia Forceware Release 160, v160.02 June 5, 2007.

The display driver issue manifests itself in many ways. For example, I cannot play any video (DVD discs or avi files). It either won't play at all or is extremely jumpy. I've tried many different software players and none work. It's not a codec issue either. If I disable the nVidia display driver, the video will play normally. Another example, Outlook doesn't refresh the screen properly but, again, if I disable the nVidia driver, Outlook works OK. The same for some Photoshop CS3 problems; they disappear if I disable the nVidia driver.

The Windows Experience Index will not calculate at all with the FX4400 driver enabled. It reports an error and will not run. It reports an error to the effect that some hardware or device driver is not responding. If I disable the nVidia driver and run the Windows Experience Index, I get 5.2 and above for CPU, Memory and RAM. I get 1.0 for the graphics (to be expected I guess without the nVidia driver) but at least this shows the other components are OK.

I just bought a Dell XPS 8900 with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 745 add-in video card. I also bought a Dell U2414H. When I connect the Dell-provided cable into the mini-display port on the back of the monitor and then connect the other end into the Display Port on the back of the computer, the monitor simply says "No DisplayPort cable.". I called Dell Support and spent almost 90 minutes on the phone with absolutely no resolution. Finally, I got a manager on the line and was told that my computer had a "add-in" graphics card and that the cable coming from the monitor would have to connect directly to the add-in graphics card. I asked the manager to send me the cable. He told me that I would have to purchase it myself, since it wasn't included in my original $1,600 purchase. He also made sure that I understood that I just didn't just need the cable. I also need a Displayport-to-HDMI converter as well because the NVIDIA card uses an HDMI signal while the monitor uses a Displayport signal. The two aren't compatible, apparently. The manager informed me that while the monitor does have HDMI ports, they're actually "HDMI MHL" ports which only connect the monitor to tablets and cell phones. Don't know why Dell never bothered to inform me that the add-in video card wasn't compatible with the monitor.

My generic advice:
Stay with the none crashing driver then, unless you have a very specific NEED for an update, I try to pass on them, if I am already stable, video card driver revisions don't often make huge general leaps in performance, and a small tweak is not worth crashing headaches, ever.

Of course it helps to be 99.99999% sure it is the driver causing the crash.

I searched the forums and the only posts involved the AMD card and I have an Nvidia card.  I couldn't find any information on the K4000M so I called tech support and they told me it was 2560x1600.  But then I found another forum where they said even the K1000M can do 4k.
I hooked up my 4k TV to the HDMI and used the Nvidia custom resolution to set up 3840x2160 at 30 hz and the display works.  The graphics look great, but the text is super fuzzy.  The TV supports 4K at 60Hz, but I'm not sure if the HDMI port on the back of my M6700 supports 60Hz.
Does the HDMI support 60Hz at 4k?  What about the display port?  Any idea why my text is super fuzzy while the graphics are razor sharp?

A:Precision M6700 Nvidia Quadro K4000M max resolution 4K monitor display port hdmi refresh rate

First, I'm going to refer you to this article from Nvidia discussing Ultra 4k Resolution.  The important statement is this:

The current HDMI 1.4 standard only has bandwidth for 4K at 30hz. HDMI 2.0 will add support for 4K at 60Hz. Details should become clearer in late 2013. There are a few TVs on sale today that support 4K @ 30Hz through HDMI.

Now, according to this review and article about the K4000m card specifications, it states that the card has HDMI 1.4 connections, which means it won't, theoretically, handle Ultra 4k resolution at the 60Hz bandwidth.
I also found this on documentation online about the Precision 6700.   

The Precision™ M4700 & M6700 incorporates HDMI version 1.4. Features

So, unfortunately, it doesn't sound like that card will support the higher refresh rate needed.   
As for Display port 

DisplayPort cables are much simpler to define: There’s just one type! The current version, DisplayPort 1.2, delivers enough bandwidth to carry video resolutions of up to 3840 by 2160 pixels at a refresh rate of 60Hz

So Display Port would be a much better option for you, if available.
I hope this answers your questions.
