Graphic Card Issue after clean install of Windows 7

Q: Graphic Card Issue after clean install of Windows 7

first, i'm apologizing for being a computer idiot, but I've never actually messed with / installed a sound card myself. I had it installed by someone who knew what he was doing. :\

okay, so:
i just did a clean install of Windows 7.
a few months ago, i had a new graphics card installed to allow me to play The Sims 3. everything worked fine for months, just exactly like it is now, until I installed Windows 7.

Now, in my device manager, I show two graphics cards:
- Radeon X1300/X1550 Series (Microsoft Corporation WDDM)
- Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

Both show up as fully updated with working drivers, and claim to be working properly, but in my display settings, it shows up as "Generic PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter." I've disabled the VGA Graphics adapter in Device Manager, but when I restart the computer, it says "Default Monitor on," with no adapter listed.

Even though I always hooked my monitor into the motherboard, I tried plugging it directly into the graphics card, but the monitor shows nothing except for the "Monitor is working, test red, test blue, etc."

I also tried to enter BIOS and disable my onboard video card; but I didn't see an option to do that (I have Phoenix BIOS on an Emachine T2615, btw).

I actually uninstalled the OnBoard video through device manager, but it automatically installed when I restarted my computer.

I would just wait and take it to the guy who installed it (i won't go to best buy or any of those computer repair people who also sell computers; they don't want to fix it, they want you to buy new - always) but he's on vacation next week and I don't want to wait two weeks to play a stupid game.

I checked the Compatibility center, and they say it's compatible.
So, my question is, How do i get my computer to use the Radeon card?

Hi guys, i've been struggeling for a while now with a clean install of windows 7.

First of all it was a pain to install all the drivers of the Dell recource dvd. But okay with most the drivers in place i was trying to look for my discrete onboard Nvidia Geforce 525m video card in device manager. But i just can NOT find it, not in hardware and devices or in the Device manager. I've searched hours and hours how to fix this but just cant seem to understand.

It does see the intel Family HD display adapter but nothing in the range of a nvdia or geforce. My motherboard has been replaced a while ago but at that time the Nvidia worked, it seems like computer forgot its total existence.

Any Suggestions? I'm feeling pretty fatigued about this right now.

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... You need to go to the Dell Website and Download the Drivers from there ...

The reason being the Drivers you have on the DVD are more than likely out of Date ...

Hi,

Any advice on this?

A:Windows 10 or Graphic card issue

If you can get into Device Manager try updating your driver. If no driver is available try rolling back or using the generic driver and see if your problem goes away.

Hello !

First and foremost please be advised that I have done this before without issue.

Toshiba Satellite laptop L855-S5383
Realtek network card

As stated before, I have done this before. Though its a separate laptop, these two laptops are identicle 100%, I bought them both together at the same time off of tiger direct.

obviously I switched UEFI to CSM and disabled secure boot....the win7 installation is complete.

As I have had to do in the past, I need to install the network card driver, which I saved last time I did this, and it doesn't work. I went to the toshiba website, downloaded several drivers and none of them worked. I am stumped and usually dont have any issues with drivers, but have no clue why I cannot get anything to work. Toshiba is usually great with this, so im thinking it has to be on my end. Could it be that I have a faulty install? ...I don't see how as I already know its a driver issue.

To be as specific as possible it is :

Realtek RTL8723AE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC


Thanks in advance for the time and help !

Hello,

Few days before New Year i bought new "fancy" and "strong" computer.
Configuration:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE PP55-UD3P
Processor: Intel i5-750
Graphic card: GIGABYTE ATI RADEON 5870 1GB DDR5
Memory: Kingston 2x2GB DDR3 1600MHz (1333MHz is default i didnt overcloacked)
Hard disk: 1TB Samsung 7200rpm 32MB cash
Monitor: SONY LCD TV 32" Bravia

I installed windows 7 x64... and my nightmare begins.

First I got some BSODs during installation of drivers that came in card package. I am not sure if it was graphic card or motherbord drivers. I downloaded and installed newest 9.12 Catalist from ATI site, drivers for 5800 serie for windows 7 x64.

Then I proudly installed DIRT 2 that came with ATI RADEON 5870. I got couple of crashes during DIRT intro as many other ati card owners complaint about on forums. I think I eliminated that problem when i set GPU and memory frenquency to be 850MHz and 1200MHz for all windows energy saving states (there are 3 of those in ati profile file). Before I did that I had quite a few graphic card crashes with stripes on screen and had to hard reset the computer (problem that is also well known to ati card users according to forums).

And finally when i thought i had solved all issues (no crashes for a few days) i got two BSODs in last three days. I leave computer to download something and after few hours ... crash.

A:BSODs in Windows 7 x64. Graphic card or memory issue?

The debugger can't access symbols for your copy of Windows 7.
Please let us know where you got your copy of Win7 from.
If it was on a disk, what did the disk say?

There's really nothing that's identified by the BSOD's.

First, please uninstall your copy of Acronis True Image - it's an older version that may have some issues with Win7 (even if it's listed as "compatible"). You can reinstall it after we've finished troubleshooting.

Please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions to see if it can get us any extra information:





Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"

Booting with the cd I come to the configuration text and after that the monitor gets black. Normally it would continue on with a blue interface and installing the neccesary drivers that would be required for a disc format and installation. But now its only black.

The strange thing is that when I remove my Harddrives (WD Caviar) and reboot then the installation continues with the blue installation interface. If I only have one HD installed then the screen gets black. (nomatter what drive it is).

Hello, Community! I'm about to do a clean install of Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit on a T530 (BIOS v2.68) with an SSD. My issue is I'm new to UEFI and have never done an install with UEFI. I suspect that my apporpriate install BIOS Setup should be:UEFI/Legacy Boot: UEFI OnlyCSM Support: YesDoes the T530 support a UEFI boot interface similar to pressing F1 and getting into BIOS? Then after I install Windows 7 then install all the T530 HW drivers, I should set the BIOS settings to:UEFI/Legacy Boot: BothUEFI/Legacy Boot Priority: UEFI FirstCSM Support: Yes Does my above configuration plan make sense? I have two requirements once Win7 is installed - first, I must be able to boot from an external USB when needed. Second I must be able to boot into either BIOS or some UEFI graphical interface (I see on this forum that when some people set UEFI they lose that ability).. Will my above plan achieve this for me? Thank you!

A:Clean Install of Windows 7 Pro on a Lenovo T530 with an SSD - UEFI Issue?

Hello and welcome,
 
I've moved your post to the T-series forum.
 
A couple of quick thoughts.  Others will probably have more suggest.
 
Boot your installer via the USB 2.0 ports.  Clean '7 won't have USB 3.0 drivers and the installer will fall over.
 
If booting the installer from a flash drive you'll have to modify the it for UEFI booting. Don't know about a DVD.
 
F12 will get you the boot menu and on current UEFI machines there will be a tab for BIOS access.  Not sure about the 530.
Depending on what you're going to be booting via USB in the future UEFI-only may be fine.  Doesn't really matter if you leave at "both" but occasionally something will boot in the "other" mode and produce unexpected results.  I'm inclined to leave it at whatever the OS install mode is and toggle as necessary - but whatever floats your boat.

Hi; so basically I'll start from the begginging;

My parents computer has been running on Windows Vista since they got it, the computer is a "Dell Inspiron 530" nothing special the only thing changed in it is a "Nvidia GeeForce 9500GT"

The specs are fine for running Windows 7, I recently got round to installing Windows 7 Home Premium (32bit) copying files, extracting goes fine; reboots and then nothing; I get the windows splash screen but nothing afterward, it just goes to a black screen (no curser visable) if i restart and boot in safe mode it gets past the splash screen but onlt to inform me that Windows cannot complete the installation in safe mode, if I boot up in low res mode then I just get a splash screen and once again a blank screen (no curser visable)

After a few restarts and a few hours of forums hunting for solutions I decided to install Vista back onto the system once the install was complete and I got back to my desktop I installed the Nvidia drivers and then did another install of Windows 7 but this time using the "Upgrade" option in the hope that it may be the graphics card or something needing the drivers :P

However this time I did get a little bit further; the install copied and extracted the files fine; rebooted AND then went on to do a few more installation processes; AFTER this however the system did its restart and same issue, Windows 7 splash screen and onto the black screen nothing else;

Hello. Recently I bought Gigabyte HD 4650 1gb agp 8x card. I unistalled drivers for my old card, removed the old card, put this new card, and plugged in everything. I turned on my pc, installed drivers and directx from cd, and restarted. But i then i noticed some problems.
First, Aero looks weird(picture: http://oi56.tinypic.com/2qu87xz.jpg), so i turned it off. Second, in game scenes and game itself works perfectly, but intros, and other prerendered scenes are really slow and laggy(1 fps!).
Third, when i start playing some game, it lags a bit but after a few seconds it stops and works perfect.
Fourth, some games don't show graphics correctly. Examples:
Assassins creed 2(first scene): http://i51.tinypic.com/16c9kzp.png
NFS Carbon(if i set visual treatment on high, otherwise it works normally): http://i53.tinypic.com/21e5kb7.pn
Also, I noticed that Catalyst Control Center doesn't show SmartGart and VPU recover tab, and I think they should be there.
I installed new drivers, installed newer version of directx, didn't helped. I removed drivers, same thing, i played with some options in Catalyst and ingame options, nothing. I changed some compatibilty stuff in windows, same thing. Please help, I really don't understand why it doesn't works properly. I meet all the requirements for this card, and this problems really frustrates me. Thanks in advance

The ATI Radeon x1650PRO does not have a high power requirement so it is unlikely to be related the PSU. There are two possible problems,

the first to look at is did you install the card correctly?

the second is, do you have the correct drivers for the card. ie 64bit

I thought of adding all what I did, but it'd be long and unnecesesary. I'll just post what I did after formating.
I was getting some blue screens saying that ati2dvag.dll was stanked on a infinite loop. After a lot of unsuccessful fixes, I formatted my Hard Drives (which explains why I have so much free space).

Now after I installed the ATI latest driver, my computer keeps crashing. It doesn't crash on secure mode though. I don't see any blue screen now though, the computer just freezes, screen goes black for a second, and when the image comes back, the graphic card is not working right anymore (I know this because the image refreshes much slower). Or it just freezes permanently.

I tried older display drivers, like 8.1 and 9.1, HECK, even 5.2. None of them made a difference.

I'm so tired... I've spent hours and hours on this... I also lost everything I had when I formatted...

Please, help me...

I'm really confussed about this issue, but I'll explain whats happened and if anyone has any tips please pass them on.

I have a machine by Tiny.com, running win 98se, 500mhz celeron, intel on baord graphics and audio.

I purchased a prophet 3d 4000xt 64mb pci graphics card and followed installation procedure and install card success fully and have been using it with no problems.

3 weeks ago I got given a 700mhz P3 prosessor and replaced it with my tied celeron, and the machine works a dream (considering it's spec!!) again no issues.

I then decided to upgrade my OS to Win XP (Pro). I booted Win98 and started to upgrade, everything started fine until the computer had to rest.

After searching for the MBR the cumputer would 'Hang' on a black screen with a white flashing cusor in the top left corner.

It took me ages to figure out that it was my graphics card that was the problem and after uninstalling it the system booted with no probs and completed the upgrade.

So no I start the install process of card and the same black screen on start up appears.

I've downloaded up to date drivers for XP from Hurcules website but nothing seems to be working.

I've been having some trouble since last friday.

I thought of adding all what I did, but it'd be long and unnecesesary. I'll just post what I did after formating.
I was getting some blue screens saying that ati2dvag.dll was stanked on a infinite loop. After a lot of unsuccessful fixes, I formatted my Hard Drives (which explains why I have so much free space).

Now after I installed the ATI latest driver, my computer keeps crashing. It doesn't crash on secure mode though. I don't see any blue screen now though, the computer just freezes, screen goes black for a second, and when the image comes back, the graphic card is not working right anymore (I know this because the image refreshes much slower). Or it just freezes permanently.

I tried older display drivers, like 8.1 and 9.1, HECK, even 5.2. None of them made a difference.

I'm so tired... I've spent hours and hours on this... I also lost everything I had when I formatted...

Please, help me...

EDIT: I don't know if this is in the right section or not o.o
If not, please excuse me.
 

A:ATI Graphic Card issue.

Is the graphics card a Sapphire ATI radeon x550 if so did you go to the Sapphire site to get the drivers? Or did you get those drivers from AMD/ATI site? If you went to AMD/ATI then you will have different drivers as Sapphire have their own drivers for their graphics card

Welcome to TSF.

Sorry, but I have to ask this . . . . Why are you still running WinXP SP1 (or even SP2 as it indicates under your username)?? If this PC is connected to the internet, you subjecting it to a lot of vulnerabilities. You really should install SP3.

You can download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...displaylang=en

Both the download and the install will take a chunk of time, but it'll be worth it in the long run. Also, I'd strongly suggest leaving your PC running overnight for a couple of nights so that it picks up all of the updates released since SP3.

Anyother suggestion: Exhaust all least destructive troubleshooting methods before doing something such as formatting your HDD. Although that is occasionally necessary, it should be a last resort.

It could very well be that the graphic card is going bad. The only way to tell for sure would be to install it in another PC and see if you have the same problems. You can get a similar card on eBay pretty cheap or you can upgrade.

Since you've gone as far as formatting your HDD, reinstalling the OS, drivers, etc., I'd say that you have pretty well knocked out any chance of it being a software issue.

I'm hoping that I've put this in the right forum

A couple of months back, I bought Tomb Raider: Anniversary for my computer and kept having random crashes while playing it. After this annoyance got out of hand, I had my computer checked and the problem appeared to be a faulty hard-drive. With no apparent way to rescue it, the offending item was duly removed, and the problems ceased.

Until now.

Within the last month or so, I've acquired a number of new games, these being ShadowRun, Halo 2 and Assassins Creed (all for PC, obviously). All these games have caused my computer to freeze intermittently and eventually crash (Blue Screen of Death!), which I can assure you is irritating as anything. Especially when it wipes your game data.

As you can imagine, these games have high requirements for play, and I'm wondering whether its my graphics card that's behind this series of annoyances? I have a Radeon X1950 Pro, which is initially accepted by all the games (I do have the minimum requirements for all of the aforementioned titles).

So, can anyone suggest what my problem might be? And, even better, might you be able to suggest a solution? Altair and MasterChief need you!

Many thanks

P.S - If I've omitted any major details, please hasten to tell me, so that I can amend them forthwith!

Over the past week I have had my graphics card crash several times while gaming.I get the message Display driver stopped responding and has recovered". I'm running windows 10 and when I open precision x 16 I noticed that my GPU Clock is always at 979MHZ which doesn't seem right when i'm just on the internet, but it does go up while gaming. Everything is up to date, maybe the driver is going bad? Here's a link to the picture showing precision x. http://postimg.org/image/5z0d5ogfd/

The hardware/gaming experts here can help you better if you provide a description(brand name, model number, wattage, speed, etc.) of the following:
Motherboard
Processor
RAM
Power supply

If that's a factory-brand computer and not a custom/home-built one, also provide its brand name and model name and model number.

There seems to be driver issue on video card. As soon as you fresh install, it works great for few hours, may be few days. After that, it crashed with blue screen.

If I go into safe mode and uninstall the display driver, sometimes it works other times, it doesn't

Any idea? is my laptop running too hot? how do I check the temp?

Is it possible to change the Graphic Card ofr LenovoK410 can't be modified because of a BIOS that has no Update since the beginning ????? Is there another reason ???

Hi guys,

I need your help, there is something wrong with my brother's graphic card. When he turn the computer on, he is getting some funny colors of the text in the bios screen and there is flickering on the screen.

Here is the screenshot:




I don't have a problem with my own graphic card on my computer as it is perfect clear on the screen, but my brother is getting flicking and some funny colors on the screen that you could not read the words on the screen. When I put mine graphic card on his computer, everything works fine as there is no flicks or funny colors but if I put his graphic card on my computer I believe i would get flicks and funny colors.

Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

Do I have to go on the bios to change on the settings?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

thanks in advance

Try his card in your computer. If you get the same problem on both computers it's the graphics card, it's faulty, you will have to replace it.

Dear Ones:

I bought really a poor computer years ago Compaq Presario SR1630NX Desktop PC (HP) and the graphic card is too low.So I bought a new one
XFX Geforce 8800 GTS, but I have difficulty to install it. Here are the things I can think of if you would so graciously go through and offer me some help.

1. I got a 300W PSU. Seem to be low.

2. I have difficulty to disable the graphic card already built in the motherboard.

3. I have a PCI-e and install the new card, but whenever I start the computer. It begin to scream. It really bothers me.

4. I do not know to power up the new card, should I purchase a adaptor or buy a new PSU.

Please anyone save me from this pain. I am pretty much helpless with my limited knowledge of hardware stuff.

Great Thanks.
