    Hello All,
    First post for me. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for any suggestions you may post.

    I am getting an error on my video card. It states " This device cannot start. Code 10"

    I have reinstalled the drivers for the card to no avail.

    I'm running Windows XP. My video card is an NVidia GeForce 7900 GT.

    Please post any question if you want more information.

    Michael

    Try uninstalling from device manager and restarting

    See if windows picks up your card

    Is this a new card or are you just now getting errors?

    Possibly this solution may help...I've also read that you need to make sure XP is up-to-date

    It's not a new card. It is a new install of Windows XP.

    Thanks for the link. I'll give it a try.
