Question: Why do I get a Code 10 error on my NVidia Video Card?

Computer Help's picture

Are you getting a message along the lines of:

"Can't start device: Code 10"

All you should have to do is turn off your computer and boot up your Bios setup menu (usually F-10 or F-12 key on your keyboard). Somewhere inside your Bios setup menu you have to set the IRQ for your video card. Once you can do this, Windows will not be able to take functionality of your NVidia Video card.

If you are still receiving this error then I would recommend consulting with the manufacturer NVidia directly. Their website is located at this URL:
