I have a Vista ultimate machine that i upgraded from windows xp so i can get used to vista (and directx 10). It has 3gb of DDR ram, an AMD 64 bit processor at 2.2 ghz, onboard Nvidia geforce 6100, and 80 gb hard drive with approximately 20 gb left. I'm trying to install a new vga, EVGA e-GeForce 8400 GS, but it's not working and the computer tells me that the system doesn't have enough resources. I checked the specs of the card with what i have and i noticed two problems. The box mentions 256 mb ddr2 memory that I'm assuming is on the card, could this be the problem since my motherboard only supports DDR memory? The card also requires 18 A on the 12 V line, while my power supply sends out 15 A on the 12 V line. Could this also lead to this problem? Finally, like I said, im still getting used to vista, and as I was checking the system resources window, i noticed that it has the vga on there. It lists a conflict between the vga and a PCI standard pci-to-pci bridge. Is there a way I can resolve this without disabling the bridge?
Thanks in advance for your help, and I look forward to your suggestions.
