Adding video card to HP Envy 700-216

Q: Adding video card to HP Envy 700-216

I need to run dual monitors on this computer. I purchased an EVGA GEFORCE GT 610 video card with dual DVI outputs. The card specifications say the PC power supply needs to be 300 watts, and have 16 amps of +12 V available, which the power supply in the Envy 700-216 meets. Plugging the card in results in no booting, no video out of either the card or the on-board video, and 8 beeps. Don't know if the card is just not compatible, or the card is defective, or the PC has a problem. Is there anything I can check to narrow down the problem? Thanks, audioconsultant

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi: When you install a non-HP video card on any HP PC that came with Windows 8 or newer from the factory, you need to change two BIOS settings before adding your new video card. Please see this link for what settings to change...you will need to remove the video card if you have not done so already to change the settings. http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03653200/

Brand new Envy 750-435st. Disabled on board audio in the bios, installed Soundblaster XFI card in Pcie slot. Tried to install drivers that were downloaded from creative's website. Driver installation came back with an error stating that it could not find any device in the system that used the drivers. Although card did show up in the device manager. Removed the soundblaster XFI and installed a brand new Soundblaster Audigy FX in the same slot (there is only one PCIe slot). Was able to install drivers downloaded from creatives website succsessfully but sound is horrible. It is all scratchy and sounds horrible. NOTE: sound was the same horrible before drivers were installed as well. Summary review:Disabled on board audioTried 2 different creative labs sound balster cards in the PCIe slot.Both cards show up in device manager but niether card functions correctly. Is it possible I have a bad PCIe slot?

I have a motherboard with the video adapter onboard. Problem is I don't have any drivers for the motherboard or its video. So my resolution is stuck at 16 color.

If I put a PCI Video adapter in the computer, do I need to change anything on the motherboard. I would thinking to just buy a cheap video card with drivers and install.

Now I remember seeing a bunch of jumpers and I hope you will not tell me that I may need to change a jumper because the jumpers are beyond me. I have no documentation for that motherboard.

I hope I can just Plug n Play. What do you guys think???

A:Adding a video card to a video on motherboard system???

i would first check the BIOS menu of your motherboard to see if the onboard video can be turned off there. If so, then you're all set.

If not, then post the exact manufacturer of your motherboard and the model and someone here can probably find info on it for you...

In fact, someone might even be able to get drivers for your onboard video!!

I'm thinking of adding a video card to my 1 year old HP desktop. Is there a site or way to figure out if a card would give me a decent improvement? My HP is an AMD A8 6500 (3.5 GHz) with INTEGRATED Radeon HD 8570D graphics card, which seems pretty fast as it is, but I'd like to add a budget or midrange card ($50-$150). I don't need top end performance, just a decent improvement. Would a budget card even improve the performance at all? Also, if I add a card, do I have to reassign the memory that was used for the integrated card to the processor, or does that happen automatically? TIA

I believe the 6500 series cards require at least a 500 Watt power supply so you will most likely require a power supply upgrade as well if you choose that card.

Hi! This is my first post on this forum and I hope someone can help me out.

I'm trying to add a ATI Rage Pro Turbo PCI video card and I am probably doing things in the wrong order and i am nervous i'll end up without any display. I have on-board graphics on my motherboard (Gigabyte K8VM800MAE) and in the manual it says that on-board graphics is automatically disabled when you add a graphics card. So in Device Manager I uninstalled the on-board graphics, shut down, and installed the ATI card in PCI 1. I connected my monitor to the new card and restarted. Monitor says no signal. I hooked the monitor back to the old output and i have display but with lower resolution than I had before (i was able to change back to proper resolution) . I went back to Device Manager and the on-board graphics was still there and the new ATI card was recognized too. In Properties it says: Device cannot start (Code 10).

What am I doing wrong?

Can Vista support more than 1 GPU driver? I am running Vista Ult 64. Looking to upgrade to Windows 7.

I previously had an Nvidia 8800GT as my primary graphics card and also had an 8500GT installed as well on my dual boot XP/Vista PC. They worked fine and the computer recognized both correclty on both OS's I think I didn't have any trouble b/c as I found it all 8 series cards use the same driver.

I bought a new primary GPU, a ATi Sapphire 4870 1GB Toxic. I am NOT trying to run SLI or Crossfire, I need availability for 3+ monitors. Can I have two completely different video drivers? I was under the impression NO, but a computer parts guy said I can install an Nvidia & ATi driver as long as I do not install the supplemental software.

After I added 2x4GB DDR2 800 mhz ram to my PC and this beastly video card (Nvidia GTX 960 4GB), i started getting BSOD with messages IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, an attempt was made to write to read only memory BSOD and probably others.
I found that 1 of the ram's was corrupted, so I replaced both of the ones i had with 2 others, which were tested in memtest and by windows - all fine. So Ram is not the case anymore. I'm guessing either my PSU cannot feed the GPU (I'm said I have a 450 W PSU, but I believe it to be 500, still not sure), mainly because 1 of the fans for the PSU is broken since like 3 years, and I think the new GPU is making the PSU overheat too much. Other cause would be the hard drive, but I ran window's disk error checking thingy, with a tick on to fix bad sectors - still experiencing issues.
Please give me an insight on what the problem might be - overheating issue (PSU related) or Wattage issue (again PSU related) or something entirely different?

I'm getting the BSOD only when playing video games. Normal PC activity does not cause BSOD.

Thank you!

A:BSOD after changing video card and adding ram

Hi SpiritBob,

What memtest did you use?

Please upload the chkdsk logs Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

Please run the DM Log Collector again and upload a new zip, the current uploaded one misses several logs.
You could check if there are 18 .txt,

If there are a few missing, no problem as we can get them manually if required

I am upgrading a Dell. I just successfully installed an additional 128MB Ram. However the problem is with the Video Card. It already has onboard video with a pathetic 8MB of Video Ram. I got a nvidia e-TNT 2 M64 PCI video card and installed it. The neat little installer program first removed all the old drivers, then installed the new ones. Everything was going good untill I realized that I couldn't get a signal through the new PCI card until I reinstalled the drivers on the onboard display adapter and set up the TNT card as a SECONDARY monitor. But that's not what I want to do.

-->I want to stop using the onboard adapter (with 8MB) and use the new TNT card (with 32MB) as my primary (and ONLY) display.

I can go into Display Properties, enable monitor 2 (the TNT), move the position of the two monitors around, but I can't disable monitor 1 (the onboard) and I can't set 2 as the primary. The option to set 2 as primary is greyed out and the option to unset 1 from being primary is also greyed out. The only option I have is A: use the onboard only or B: use both moniters and stretch the display across both. If I try to uncheck the "display screen across both monitors, it disables monitor 2.

btw, when this Dell boots up, all that is displayed is the Dell splash screen with no options, it doesn't display the POST, it goes directly from the Dell logo to the Windows 98 logo.

change the video cable from the onboard to the card
reboot into the bios

Try as I might, I cannot for the life of me add in an additoinal video card to this computer. When I tried initially all video (including the integrade one) would be disabled (i.e. no video at all) and would only work AFTER I removed the extrernal/additional card. When I look in the BIOS I see the integrated video is enabled but it is grayed out so I can't disable it. When I play around with the slot security settings I can get the additional video card to be installed alongside, but it is never recongized by the system or Windows - nothing shows up.

I saw a D815EEA post recently on this forum section made by TANSOCAL and I knew from the answers I saw I could get some great advice and suggestions on video cards and RAM upgrades for my PC.

Here's my problem: I can't run more than 2-3 apps w/out low memory freezes and slowdowns. My PC needs are not high-end (for now), so I figure upgrading my RAM and video may help. I need a stable system for some web design and work projects where I'll be running Adobe, Macromedia and Office software. I have tweaked my system for better PC (RAM/startup managers, etc.) and DSL (3Mbps) performance and updated all my OS/HW drivers.

Here's what I got:

- An Intel D815EEA mobo w/a PIII 933MHz and PC100 3CL 128SDRAM chip
- 4x AGP slot - the video is integrated Intel 82815 graphic controller
- Latest Windows 98SE and hardware drivers and DirectX 9.0c
- Audio (SoundMAX 3D Sensaura) and LAN are also integrated
- 30GB ATA Primary Fat32 and 60GB ATA slave (routinely fragmented)
- 15" Elements Cyclone 7A monitor mainly run @ 1024x 16-bit resolution

The motherboard will only recognize 512RAM (@ max 133MHz speed). One website I found offers a $58 256MB PC133 2CL SDRAM chip, a $55 AGP Radeon 128MB 9200SE. I also found a $30 64MB Radeon 9200SE.

My budget's awful right now, so all I can think of is getting one of those cheap x8 AGP Radeons and a 256 CL2 133MHz RAM chip until I can get a whole new system. The RAM and card should be under or around $100. ... Read more

Hoping to get some clarification on repairing an HP Envy 17 laptop.  The exact model is a 17t-3200.  The screen is going blank after initial startup.  It appears to happen at the point that the video would be handed off to the video card.  I can boot the machine into windows safe mode(f8) and also into the HP diagnostic and recovery modes and the screen is viewable. One of the HP diagnostic tests for video memory resulted in a fail.  The laptop is out of warrentyWhen I initally contacted HP I was informed that HP would be able to repair the laptop.  There would be an inital diagnosis fee to obtain an estimated price for repairs.  If I chose to have the repair done, the diagnosis fee would be deducted from the total.  I chose to delay sending the laptop off until I could make backup copies of my files.Once I had done that I contacted HP again, (a few days later), about returning the laptop for repair. I called the same support number.  This time I was informed that HP could not repair the laptop because a video card to fit this machine was no longer available. So, why the different information each time?  Is there a way to confirm that there is in fact no video card available to fit this laptop.  It is operating fine other than the video issue.  I would prefer to get this machine repaired if possible, even to have as a back up unit.

Looking for some help. I recently purchased an HP Pavilion 500-314.  Specs are as follows: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04293928 The unit includes integrated Radeon R7 graphics, and comes with a 300w power supply I purchased this unit in large part because it explicitly states that "Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards".  I run a quad-monitor setup for my work, and have traditionally done this using an ATI Firepro 2450 card. I have now tried three different external graphics cards, and can get none of them to work: First attempt was with a VisionTec Radeon HD 5570 (item #900345).  This card supports quad monitor setup, and requires a minimum 250w power supply.  When I installed the card, the HP Pavilion repeatedly beeped a series of 4 or 5 (can't remember which) beeps, but refused to send an image to any video output (either onboard or the new card). Next attempt was with an EVGA GeForce GT 610.  This is a dual monitor setup, and requires a minimum 300w power supply.  Got the same exact response as with the VisionTec (i.e. series of beeps...computer would not fire any monitors up). So with both of these (new) cards, I basically gave up immediately as I couldn't even get into BIOS (b/c no monitors would work) to see what was going on.  My understanding is that the series of 4-5 beeps usually means that there is a graphics card issue, or that the card that has been added doesn't have sufficie...

Big_Dave, Thanks so much for your quick reply. The first time I spoke with HP Support, they had me disable secure boot.  Unfortunately my problems persisted (i.e. the cards wouldn't install properly).  However, after reading the link you provided I was inspired to try things one last time with a fresh start.  I uninstalled all drivers, removed all cards, re-engaged secure boot, rebooted, shut down, disabled secure boot, reinstalled the cards, and rebooted.  Lo and behold, this time the system accepted the GeForce GT 610 card. Hard for me to express how thankful I am to you.  I've spent two weeks and countless hours trying to get this fixed.  Just wish that I'd found these forums sooner. WallMonkey02

I don't know if I don't have enough juice or what, but after I add an external video card I get a BSOD.

This never happen before so I don't know what changed when I added an external video card that now it crashes when I would have one before it was fine.

A:BSOD after adding an external video card error 0x000000124

Start by updating your system specifications so we would have a better understanding
of the hardware involved.
System Info - See Your System Specs
What I can pick from the .zip file you uploaded is as such:

Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arg1: fffffa800e2991c0, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff880051924a8, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: ffffffffc000009a, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 0000000000000004, Optional internal context dependent data.
This bugcheck is usually associated with driver failure but can be attributed to hardware under the right circumstances.
DXDIAG reports HD graphics as your GPU, which is another reason to why I asked you
to fill-out your system specifications.

Card name: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
Arg2: fffffa80070b5028, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
Arg3: 00000000b2000000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Arg4: 0000000081000402, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.

My HP Envy 700-214 came with a HP 4600 video card, which has one DVI port and one VGA port. I currently have a TV hooked to the VGA port which works ok, but doesn't have the resolution of my regular Dell S2440L monitor hooked to the DVI port. What I was looking for was a video card that had, beside the DVI port, a 2nd port that I can hook up to the HDMI input on the TV. Can someone advise if this is possible, and if so, what video card they would recommend. I assume, to be compatible, that this would require an HP card, but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Computer is only two months old.  Screen will lock up and show multi-colored pixels on entire screen.  At times, screen will just freeze.  Can't use keyboard commands or mouse to restart the computer, so I am forced to use computer on/off button to reboot. Installed a new graphic card on the motherboard and diabled the on-board graphic card in device manager.  Computer screen is still freezing. Are there setting in the bios that have to be disabled also so the new video card will work? Could this be some other hardware issue other than the graphics card? Called HP support, but was not helpful. Any help would be appreciated. loucille

I've installed a second SSD (PNY CS1311 960 GB) in my HP Envy 17t that is not always being recognized.  After the initial install, I was able to see it in Disk Management, create a new simple volume and mount it as a folder.  Everything was working fine.  After the first reboot, the volume was missing and I was unable to find it in Disk Management.  I removed the SDD and connected it using a USB/SATA cable.  The volume is good, so I suspected the internal SATA cable was bad.  I ordered a new one and installed it, but the disk was still not recognized.  I double checked the cable and it was installed correctly.  After a few reboots, suddenly the disk was recognized again.  I was able to use the volume until the next reboot, when it disappeared again.  Any idea what might cause this behavior?

A:Adding a 2nd SSD to an HP Envy 17t

I had cloned the original 1TB 5400RPM HDD onto a new PNY CS1311 120GB SSD.  I wanted to have the OS and applications on the 120GB and add the PNY CS1311 960GB SSD in the 2nd bay for all my other files which I also backup offsite.  Since the laptop can only see the 2nd drive ocassionally, I've cloned the original HDD to the 960GB SSD.  The laptop works fine with just the 960GB SSD in the first bay.  It's not the setup I wanted, but it'll work.
