Hello all, I'm having some issues with my MX/MX400 Card. The Display setting won't go beyond {4bit}. After I click on Apply it changes but then when I click on OK, it either does not change (stays at 4bit) or the Blue screen flashes and the computer reboots.

The monitor is set to plug and play, all the drivers are updated and all of my Window updates a done.

Thanks!

Where did your driver come from? The most updated driver should be downloaded and installed from NVIDIA. Microsoft Update offers drivers, however they are not always the most updated, nor are they always the most stable.

I'll try to unstall and reinstall the driver, I'll see if I can find the driver at the NVIDIA site somewhere.

Perhaps this is a good question as well... What did you do with your old drivers? Are you aware that you need to uninstall any current drivers before installing new ones?

Hello Storm, I'm usually good about keeping the drivers for my computers but for some reason I can't locate this one.

And yes I'm aware that the old one must be unistalled first, with card being an older card I'm not sure if it's a good idea to use a more current driver so I'll look for an older one.

Thanks :whistling:

Does it look like your card model is on this list? http://www.nvidia.co..._supported.html

In that case, download the drivers from here: http://www.nvidia.co...p_2k_91.31.html Click on Primary Download Site and it will begin the download. NOTE: Before downloading, disable your virus protection and any download accelerators you may have installed. Also make sure you first download the drivers, and then uninstall the old drivers before installing the new ones.
