    Hi all, i have bought a new pci express graphics card, i have uninstalled the previous drivers for the old graphics card, installed the new card, then re started the pc.

    The add new hardware wizard comes up, ive put the driver cd from the new graphics card into the dvd rom drive, and selected for the computer to check for the drivers from the cd rom..... it appears to install the first drivers ok, but the x700 secondary is not installing properly..... coming up with a code 10 error.

    Can anyone help??

    Code 10 means that the device failed to start.
    (I'd post a link here to the M$ page about this - but it is about 10 miles long. Just google for windows driver code 10 error)

    Did you read the manual as to the correct order for installing drivers? Some require you to use the CD first, before installing the card.

    Looking further - and googling about, it seems that the drivers for the X700 prefer that SP2 is installed. Is this the case?

    You can post links by using the "insert hyperlink" button when you are composing a message or just using the tags [u r l=http:this_is_the_url]Link[/ u r l] without the spaces between the letters url. Here's a couple of examples relative to the error 10 issue:

    BTW - Link 1 was the place I was referring to in my previous post!

    Thanks alot guys for your advice, but looking further into it, i went into bios settings, seemed as though it was still registering the on board as the main start up graphics unit.... i have simply changed this to start up from the PCI-E.

    All seems to be fine.

    Many Thanks

    Craig

    This is so often true! We chase after complicated answers and forget the simple checks.
