krelian858 Posted January 30, 2009 Report Share Posted January 30, 2009 Hi all, can anyone help me with my Gericom 1st supersonic? I have a Gericom 1st supersonic PCI-E, recently the videocard a geforce 6600 128MB died then I thought to buy a 8600m GT 512MB DDR2 (MXM-II) as a video upgrade. I read in some forums that this card should be compatible with my laptop. Here is the story: i) I install the card but I don't see anything on the screen, the main and external screens (tried LCD and VGA) are both black. ii) Windows is normally booting (I can hear the starting sound of windows) The video card has an acer bios and my motherboard is a KN1 with bios gericom inc 3A28 from 2/1/2005. What should I do? i)Modify the acer bios? Or flash a new bios? In the second case which one should I use? I now a guy managed to install a quadro 770M on this computer but he modified the video bios. I have no idea what parameter I should touch with NiBitor ii) Update the KN1 bios? In a forum I saw there is a Q3A29 out. Does anyone know if this could help the process of recognition of my video card? iii) Send the card back an forget about this story because the 8600m GT card is not compatible with gericom 1st supersonic? Thanks to all the good souls who could help me with this laptop. PS: this is the card I got http://cgi.ebay.com/nVidia-Graphics-Card-G...bayphotohosting Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
