    HELP... Brisbane / Northside if possible - This evening ??

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    DO NOT ASK...

    I need to borrow a basic PCI -E Video card for a day or two ASAP.....

    If Possible - Something that uses Nvidia drivers; as that should minimise driver issues / conflicts.. But any thing will do..


    Have enough AGP cards etc to sink the local dredge... But no PIC-E cards

    PM me ya contact and I will get to you ASAP.. Or I will give you my contact number..

    Thanks.. Ya

    PCI - E *(Express... The faulty one is an older GT 6800 DDR3 etc etc *But the system OS is RAID 0 on 2 High speed raptors..

    Data is some what protected on a separate drive but some is on the boot partition.. Thus I do not want to have to rebuild teh raid on another system to get to the data...

    The system does all sorts of things including major boot issues but maintains a Signal not found on the screen.. However some times suddenly kicks into life.

    No Graphics card.. Boot appears clean and no post / error beeps but no Screen :-)

    Must have PCI - E *:(

    AM, if you cant get help tonight, try umart. They have a 8400GS for $34 PCI-E. Or maybe WSully has one... swap it for that network switch & more deserts. :)

    Could you try an old PCI video card? Old as hell but might get you into the OS to uninstall problem drivers etc.

    Not looking GOOD...

    Na.. If $$$ get spent it will be much Bigger.. Not my system.. I was just hoping that a quick short term fix might be possible..

    But getting late..

    Hi AM, I dont have any of these to offer you sadly. Even the box I thought had a pci-e turned out to be AGP. All the best with your search.

    The effort is appreciated..

    I am a seagull at times and love shitting from a great hight.. Dont care where it lands either ;)

    Would have been great to get a Roast monitor.. PS. I often get access to obsolete hardware etc.

    A hard drive and power supply is not a big issue ... Now go back and get that toshiba a80 laptop ASAP... We can help ya out...

    Often put stuff on the recycle org web site... Pay it forward I say...

    I often just put something out.. At any time and it usually goes the same night / next day. Just got an As new full hight Compac Server rack with internal shelves; 3 x fixed shelves (black and silver)
    1 x retractable compaq PS2 keyboard tray with keyboard and built in mouse , Lockable and power boards..

    Opps... What do I do with it.. Sorry to good for teh dump.. A Bean storage, control station and Raoster stand ;D

    Arrr so not a total wasted evening and better outcome and cheaper than buying an *I-Pad * *(pfttt pfttt something nasty just happened...)

    Called into to a major IT centre.. Not even the tecs had one... Bugger..

    Every one has PCI / AGP x dozens and even older units.. but no PCI-E

    Do not believe it.

    UPDATE: Going to move to a new system and on-board etc.

    Thus not so urgent; but if any one has a basic pci-e graphics card that they can donate/give (no return).. I am up for the postage..

    Yes.. Umart for $35 but why ??
