With my older BFG video card FX5500, there was without any of my input always video bios number first on screen after reboot so system was properly configured.(originally Intel Extreme onboard)
Lavalys utility always showed GPU information and GPU + Core clock . This card took without any problem overclocking including CPU OC.
This new 3DFuzion Ge6200 128Mb PCI bus won't take one ****. There is no video bios number on screen while rebooting , Lavalys and 3DMark03/05/06 no longer see any GPU and core speed and even any little OC with coolbits result in completely computer freeze. (reinstaled uninstaled a hundred times)
I'm running this card otherwise without any problems but wondering if there is some way maybe in registry or wherever to get system read video bios as a first thing after start or reboot of computer.
Please anyone ?
The newer cards don't show the little video bios loading screen in the corner. That doesn't mean it's not there, just not displayed. If the video bios did not load, you would have no boot, no windows, no nothing except several loud beeps.
Regarding overclocking...could just be a poor card to overclock, which is likely. Does it even have an active cooling fan? The 3dmarks, etc may not recognize the PCI card for some reason.
Thank you for your response, this card is made with more new technology with shader 3.0 and is running at stock speed GPU@350/400MHz(there is definitely room for improvement ) with nice heat sink with cooling fan. Heat sensor is showing 36 'C .
It,s probably a lot worse video bios from manufacturer for system not getting as much information from this Ge6200 than older BFG FX5500 256Mb PCI card which have been recognized in every aspect and was automaticaly configured like a charm.
I'm trying to find if there is anything to get bios file show up first on reboot (maybe registry) or is this somehow coded in bios.
There is nothing you can do to get it to show. It's coded in the video bios whether it shows or not. Editing the registry would not work since this takes place before the motherboard bios loads and Windows loads (where the registry is located).
Hope that helps. Your card seems to work fine since it plays games and runs Windows. The only thing that may be lacking (other than overclocking), is whether the drivers installed correctly or not. That can be determined if you post your DXDIAG.
Thanks again Weather_Man
I'm going to gave up, you're right It's more likely coded in video bios and it depends how every manufacturer is coding some adjustments in their video bios (even tho many vendors video bios are compatible with each other cards).
Video driver should be just fine (81.95) and driver cleaner showed everything gone before new install.
Under system information for display Ge 6200 is listed and Intel extreme was moved down the list as a other device and is disabled with yelow mark, which is okay for onboard video computers.
My card is not sharing IRQ with anything else so that is also OK.
It must be all about how and what information in video card bios code is computer able to get from in order to sneak in nicely with the whole system.
Yeah I havent seen a BIOS in a LONG time that shows itself at boot nothing to worry about there, but you may wanna go into your regular BIOS and disable the Onboard GFX(could also run Driver Cleaner and clean the Intel Extreme files out)
