Graphics display issue/s.

boxfiddler Moderator
Does it matter which slot of two my PCIExpress video card is installed to? It's a 16X card installed to a 16X slot. There are two 16X slots. I've installed to the one furthest from the CPU, if that's relevant.

I'm having some weird display issues.
'Fluid' scrolling. Very disconcerting.
'Blinking' display. Also very disconcerting.

Card is ASUS AX 300SE\T, installed to an ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe. OS is WinXP Pro, SP2. Monitor is Samsung 913v.

it is slow. O r that is how I am interpreting this. Try going back to 70 now?

Also, look at the graphics driver display settings - is hardware acceleration being used or not?

edit: Just had a look at the manual (fairly nice manual, I might add), just to make sure that it doesn't matter which slot into which you install a single graphics card. Nope. Black or blue, your choice.

I also noticed that you card comes with a utilities - try running those. Maybe try some other driver settings as there seem to be a lot of features to this card. Try a DirectX diagnostic, even. I know I have seen, used, and probably have, somewhere, a variety of odd video diagnostics. I'll see if I can name any.

To swarm, and to envelope with love, any one of us who is willing to admit, without defense, that she does not have it all under complete tow.

Not that I have it, either.

a manual with the card. Just a quick install flyer. I'll hunt up the manual shortly.

Thanks on the video diagnostic utilities when you think of them.

Just type dxdiag in the run box.

You may also wish to check if the monitor needs a color profile installed, and whether there is one installed & in use. Mismatch = bad color.

Card manual - Unfortunately, that section of the Asus site is <i>still</i> undergoing maintenance. http://www.asus.com/999/html/events/vga/eax300se-t/overview.htm

Interesting, maybe, regarding drivers: http://driver-helper.org/asus/asus-5/asus-extreme-ax300set-driver-download

Mobo manual, which I found to be slick:

I cannot seem to locate any of my old monitor/graphics tests (mostly "DOS"-like) - time to search the archives.

here is one that might suit your needs, 30 day free eval: http://www.passmark.com/products/monitortest.htm

Nope, Thanksgiving Sunday, easier for the folks. Will report back. I worked, instead, and also played around on teh Intarwebs.

I have found my stack of CDs and HDDs from other machines. Will have a look for one of the graphics and display tests. They will hurt your eyes, and you may feel the patterns on the inside of the back of your skull.
