NVIDIA 8500GT/This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12) RRS feed

  • Question

  • So from all the post I guess anything NVIDIA above 7300 which was the last to work in my Vista Home Basic 2gbram 310power source is useless? Here's something I' yet to try  :

    1. Please check if you installed any version of Nero on the computer by chance, if yes, please installed the latest version check if this issue resolved.

    2. If you installed the Nero on the computer and the above step did not resolve this issue, please follow the below steps to check this issue again.

    3. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSfilter

    4. Rename "NeroVideoProc.ax" to say "1NeroVideoProc.ax"

    5. Rename "NeVideo.ax" to say "1NeVideo.ax"

    6. Reboot

    After that, please check if this issue still exists. If yes, please also go to the steps 3 to narrow down this issue.

    Step 3: Check lmpgspl.as on the computer

    ==========================================

    1. Please locate C:\WINDOWS\system32

    2. Please find the file lmpgspl.ax in this folder

    3. Please right click on the file and rename it as lmpgsplold

    4. Restart the computer

    5. Please Click Start, type CMD in the Search Box

    6. Please copy the following command one by one in the prompt Windows.

    regsvr32 /u lmpgvd.ax

    regsvr32 /u lmpgspl.ax

    regsvr32 /u lmpgad.ax

    Please note: A message that the commands have been run successfully should appear.

  • Hello,

     

    I think I did misunderstand your means. If you like, let us narrow down the problem’s scope and try to find the cause of this issue.

     

    If you are using PCI Express expansion chassis, refer the following KB article and see if it helps in your case:

     

    (KB942959) Error message when you attach a PCI Express expansion chassis to a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008: "Code 12" or "Code 31"

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;942959

     

    If that doesn’t apply to this issue, tell me more details especially your system information.

     

    Cheers,

  • Hello,

     

    I don’t think we are the best support resource for this issue, to know more details about the driver file, contact NVidia for further assistance. Thanks!

     

    If I misunderstood your concern, feel free to let me know.

  • Thank you very much Mr. Chen-MSFT; however if you search the boards you will find many post regarding the Code 12 error in the Device manager and not all are caused by the same thing. I even found two separate post that suggested MSFT knew of this problem and was refusing to deal with it and was handling it by refering users to manufactures. I can't speak for all, but I only post here after seeking help from the manufactures, and if they are all saying the same thing "it works in everything but VISTA" then  what are you supposed to do? Seeing as how MSFT only supports VISTA for 90 days. Again I cant speak for everyone else, but the thing I like bout MSFT over MAC is you can change your PC to more than it was. Can you do that with a MAC? I don't know. I do know that when my car breaks down I go to the CRAFT SHOP before I go to a mechanic. You know a place where a bunch of guys and a couple of women work on their own stuff and if you run into problems fixing your stuff, maybe there's somebody there who knows a bit more or has seen the problem before. If I misunderstood your concern, feel free to let me know.
