I recently upgraded my Dell 8200 1.8gHz with more memory, an additional hard drive, and a new graphics card. The new memory and hard drive are working fine. However, I am having some issues that I think come from the new graphics card.
I had a 64mb NVidia Geforce2 MX graphics card. I deleted the old driver. I added a PNY Geforce 5700 LE. Then I noticed that my mouse would hesitate when I moved it, then it would jump and catch up. My son noticed that the same thing would happen in his game--Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic--the movement would be jerky. I don't play games much, but I opened up the old Microsoft Pinball game that come with XP. It too was jerky. For awhile, my sound didn't work, but it seems okay now, although it doesn't appear as loud to me as before. I added the newest driver. I have checked everything I know to check.
So, after this, I decided that I had done something wrong. So I proceeded to deleted the new driver, take out the new card and put the old one back in to get the system back to working order. No luck. I still had the jerky graphics. Now I have the new card back in, but the jerkiness is still there.
