'Not enough Free Resources'

I just got a new monitor (Dell S2409W) And then noticed these errors on my graphics card panel. I'm not sure if this happened before I got the monitor but this is when i first noticed it. What do i do?

Need to sort something first. Are you using the onboard video as shown in those screen shots, or are you using the Geforce 210 listed in your specs? If it is the 210 then the fix for what you posted is to go into the bios and disable the onboard video.

The 7050 is onboard video, it is not a card. This is the Geforce 210,

Every PC needs good graphics.

Do you have both showing in Device Manager?

This is an example of a computer with onboard video (#1) as well as a video card (#2),

If your monitor is connected to #2 then you need to go into the bios and disable it.

Good monitor, I have the same one

ahh, you don't need to worry RiD, you are using hybrid SLI, but your computer cannot handle it, you need to reboot your computer and load the bios, from there you need to go into integrated pheripherals and look for onboard GPU, disable it and that error will disappear along with the extra card.

Edit:

the nForce 7050 is the chipset of your computer, the drivers are loaded by default once you disable your onboard graphics card, you don't need to worry about that.

Delete or F2 likely. Start tapping one of them shortly after hitting the power button.
