Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT Video Card Listed As "Unknown Device" in Windows XP - Symptoms and Solution

A perfect example of a hardware device that plays a major role in the performance of your computer is the video card, such as Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT. But what happens when your Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT video card is recognized as an
unknown device
in Windows XP? What are the possible symptoms and causes of this problem? And what are the practical steps you need to take to fix this problem? These are the questions that we will discuss.

Possible Symptoms and Causes

In most cases, having a graphics card recognized as an unknown device will result in poorer 2D graphics resolution and your computer will not be able to render 3D graphics. This is usually due to an incompatible, outdated, or missing driver. In the case of the missing driver, Windows XP will install a generic video driver, which usually doesn't provide all of the features of the specific video driver.

Sometimes, it may also result in distorted and unrecognizable graphics display or Blue Screen of Death (also called BSoD). Most often, this is due to a corrupt driver.

Practical Steps for Fixing This Problem

The recommended solution is to install the latest version of device drivers, which can be found at the vendor's website. Below are the practical steps that you need to remember to fix the unknown device related problem of the Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT video card.

1) Be Certain of the Device Identity:

This is a precautionary measure that you should take into consideration. You must ensure that you have the correct model/name of your video card, especially if there are multiple
unknown devices
on your computer. If you install the wrong drivers, you may end up causing even more problems. Follow these steps to confirm the identity:

1. Click Start

2. Right click My Computer

3. Click Device Manager

4. Right click the Unknown Device

5. Click Properties

6. Select Details tab

7. Browse to Device Instance ID

8. Take note of VEN_**** and DEV****. Nvidia GeForce GT 9500 IDs are VEN_10DE (Vendor ID = 10DE) and DEV_0640 (Device ID = 0640)

2) Confirm the Windows XP OS-type:

Common device drivers for Windows XP are compatible for both OS type, either 32-bit or 64-bit OS, but not for all device drivers. So, it is recommended to take note of this information to avoid installing incompatible device drivers. Please follow these steps:

1. Click Start

2. Click Run

3. Type msinfo32.exe

4. Look for System type: It's either x86-Based PC (32-bit OS), or x64-Based PC (64-bit OS)

3) Download Procedures for the Official Vendor's Website:

Knowing the model/name of the graphics card will lead you to the official website of its manufacturer or vendor, the safest place to download the device drivers for any hardware device. Here are the steps to download its drivers:

In the upper left side of the homepage, the first available tab is the "DOWNLOAD DRIVERS" tab. Roll over that portion and select "Download Drivers" from the provided drop down list. You will be redirected to the NVIDIA DRIVER DOWNLOADS page which offers two options:

a) Manually find drivers:

This option requires filling out a form consisting of five categories. The first category is the Product Type, which is GeForce. The second is Product Series which is GeForce 9 Series, while the third category will let you specify the Product which is GeForce 9500 GT. The fourth category will ask for your Operating System, so make sure to choose the driver for your correct OS type, whether it is Windows XP or Windows XP 64-bit. The last category will let you choose your preferred language.

Clicking the Search button will redirect you to a page with helpful reviews for the device driver such as Release Highlights, Supported Products, and Additional Information. Lastly, you can now download the device driver for your Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT by clicking the DOWNLOAD button, and afterward install it on your computer.

b) Automatically find drivers:

This option will install the Nvidia Smart Scan tool on your computer. After the scan, this option recommends the latest compatible device drivers. If you are not an experienced PC user, it may be best to use this option first to see whether it will detect your hardware properly.

To recap the important steps that we discussed: first before downloading the driver for the Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT video card, ensure the identity of your device such as (model/name) to prevent wrong device driver download. Second, take note of the OS-type to avoid compatibility issues. Lastly, download only from the official vendor's website; be very careful while providing the specific details such as model and OS-type; and read the available descriptions/reviews of the device driver. Consider using the "Automatically find drivers" option first if you are not an experienced PC user.
