Very odd artifacts with Nvidia Official Drivers..

Q: Very odd artifacts with Nvidia Official Drivers..

I had this problem with the earlier 66.71 drivers and I just installed 66.93 and had the problem again (I was using a nonofficial driver, can't remember number). What it appears to be doing is taking the polygons of certain things and extending them, like lines, across the entire world, they move with the originating entity, but they just extend to infinity... This has happened with both Far Cry and the World of Warcraft Beta, both of which worked fine with the non-official drivers. Has anyone ever heard of this kind of thing before, or am I alone in this?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Did you completely uninstall the old driver first?

Also when installing drivers it`s a good idea to disable any antivirus programme you are using as this can seriously screw up the process of installing and uninstalling.

I just installed the office AMD VGA Driver jan 17 2017 16.40.2701.1. once through amds regular install and then a second time after using DDU in safe mode.  I can now access radeon addition settings display color setting all drivers since 16.9 drivers.  I use a tv as a display and need that function greatly.  I havent been able to get it to show that tab with AMDs newest drivers at all.  My new problem is with Lenovos drivers my apu is max 800mghz constantly when plugged in. I attached a pic so you can see.  The APU going from 800 to 300 was me plugging and unplugging it.  This is an issue for me now because I down clocked my CPU to play some games and now im crashing constantly from what my guess is the APU at 800 mghz constant even with little no no load.  THis is so frustrating Lenovo and AMD.  THis is the flagship laptop for AMD right now and Its terrible with drivers.  So any help or explanation would be greatly appreciated. I just want to use the newest drivers with display color settings.  Its not that hard to ask. EDIT in radeon additional settings I always have used maximum performance when plugged in and now when I switch it to optimize battery my APU for down to 300 when in idle or light load like it should and used to with all the other drivers ive used and left it on Maximum Performance.  This sucks if that settings on optimize battery the cpu runs at 2.5ghz on high performace. &...

May sound stupid but do you have the latest drivers installed. Makes a huge difference sometimes.

Some games no matter how hard you try just don't like a PC. Take Shellshock Nam67 for example.... its always looked like you pics. On my old PC or my new one. whatever GPU - so try a different game?

Chec its the GPU is not overheating using nTune - (search on google)

Hi,

I had been tearing my hair out for the last 2 days trying to work out why my SSD performance was slower than my previous computer (Q9300, GA-EP41-UD3L with no AHCI, 4GB DDR2 RAM) and realised that it was the SATA drivers that came with my motherboard. As soon as I went back to the Windows default AHCI SATA drivers my read/write speeds were about 280MB/270MB per sec. once I installed the Intel ICH10R drivers and the Marvel SATA 3 drivers, my performance dropped to about 240MB/235MB per sec (This is using ATTO Benchmark)

Anyone notice this and is there a solution for this problem?

P.S. It also appears that the Intel/Marvel drivers do not support the TRIM command as when I run a program to force this to happen, the drive does nothing (whereas it works with the default drivers)

A:Slower SSD performance with official drivers

Hello Scorpian, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might give the 10.0.0.143 beta Intel AHCI SATA drivers a try to see how it works for. It supports TRIM. I got better performance with my SSD with this one.

The latest official WHQL 9.6.0.1014 Intel AHCI SATA drivers (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) also supports TRIM, but it not the latest version as the one above.


Hope this helps,

Hello HP community,I have quite a problem here. I game on this HP 15-r032nx notebook that I obtained about a year and a half ago (as silly as it seems, but I'm a low-spec gamer, so anything goes), and I've been vouching for Intel to grab the latest Intel HD Graphics drivers, as the official ones provided by HP are sorely outdated (a little bit over a year, to be exact, latest official driver was released back in August 2015), meanwhile Intel's latest driver update was released in the middle of August 2016. But, the big thing was, when I decided to revert into HP's official latest drivers, all my games' performances improved marginally. I seriously feel the performance could be further improved by having HP release their version of the latest drivers for Intel HD Graphics 4400, but unfortunately I do not see that for my laptop model. Anything going on here?

A:Official HP Intel HD Graphics 4400 Drivers Outdated

Nothing is going on. HP does not create the drivers for the HD 4400 graphics, Intel does. It is their product. The graphics solution  is on the same chip as the CPU\APU and not on the system board. Your best source for an Intel HD 4400 graphics driver will be at the Intel driver download website

Your files aren't stored in the main Toshiba files, which probably means Toshiba no longer supports your model. But they are still stored in the listed archives. This is all the files I could find for your device Windows 7 32bit

I recently have noticed some odd little graphical problems when I play any game on my computer. This is relatively a newish (1-2 months) problem, and I can't for the life of me figure out what the problem is, as it never really happened before.

With certain types of graphics, small lines or boxes appear around them. It happens mostly with things that are cloud or glow effects, mostly on spells and the like. It almost looks like the graphics engine is trying too hard, and showing the borders of the effect as well. The cloud effects also seem to be really square and boxy as well. Some transparent colours also appear too intense, becoming almost opaque.

This whole problem started as far as I know when I installed Neverwinter Nights 2, but it effects my whole system now.

I am using the most current version of DirectX, and the drivers for my ATI Radeon X550 are also up to date.

Any idea what might be causing the problem, and/or how to fix it?
 

A:Small graphical artifacts: card or drivers?

There are a lot of error messages posted by users at the Neverwinter Nights 2 forum, so check there first... and do a gurgle search for Neverwinter Nights 2. Then if you don't find relevant answers there, you might look at this stuff below... which is guesswork, but has helped with some of our clients.

It would be helpful to know what those "certain types of graphics" are... It sounds as if it could be fixed by uninstalling and reinstalling Office and other software. but it is perhaps possible that spyware or adware is involved, as well.
Run your antivirus and antispyware software twice... once in normal mode, then immediately shut down and reboot in SAFE mode.
I would uninstall every relevant program, then run a defrag, then run CCleaner free registry editor. Then reinstall every relevant program. Often times, you need to again run a registry cleaner such as CCleaner at this point. Then as a precaution, run your antivirus and anti-spyware in regular and SAFE mode... and also run Adware 2007 and Spybot 1.4
Sometimes screwy things get into Microsoft Office Professional setups... and Adobe software.
It can also be a graphics driver problem, where disabling the current driver, and downloading 0the latest or a previous version will help, but I doubt this is the case based upon what you report.
After all the above, if still bad, download and run HiJack This, then post the log to this forum where some real experts can look it over.

Hello all. My laptop used work perfectly until the day I decided to remove all the extra stuff by doing a clean install of Windows 10.  I predownloaded all the drivers I would need and then did the clean installation.  Now I have an issue with my wifi.  It randomly drops connection to wifi and is slow to start working again.  After coming out of sleep it does not automatically reconnect to the ap and I have to trigger it manually.  Separately (i think) when coming out of sleep, the login screen does not respond to the keyboard and I am forced to use the mousepad to click or a touchscreen swipe to get to the password field. What I'm seeking is an official list of drivers that are required for a clean windows 10 install on a thinkpad yoga series 20CD.  If order of installation is critical, please give this also.  I believe I downloaded everything available from the support page but just want to be sure.  Sometimes not all drivers are available when filtering by OS "Windows 10".   Thanks in advance. Laptop specs are:512gb ssdmemory card slot2.4/5 n/ac wireless 7260ac w/bluetooth

Well this one has me completely stumped. A friend gave me his old Sapphire Radeon X850 XT after upgrading to a new card, so I threw it in my rig. After installing the latest version of Catalyst, I tried demoing a couple of WMV HD videos just to see if everything was tip-top. Well, I got a mess of snow and red and blue pixels - the kind of artifacts you'd expect when things are getting a little too toasty inside.

I tried reinstalling the card a couple of times, and one time I ran the WMV HD video BEFORE installing the card (XP detected its presence, but I didn't give it any drivers). Worked like a charm. Picture was crystal clear. Every time I install Catalyst, or just the bare display drivers, the thing goes haywire, but with no drivers it is just fine. Any idea what could cause such a thing? Should I try to find an old version of Catalyst or something?

Setup:

ASRock P45TurboTwins2000 mobo (P45 + ICH10)
Core 2 Duo E6550 2.4GHz
2GB DDRII - 667
 

A:ATI Radeon X850 XT works without drivers, but shows artifacts with them

My guess is two different drivers.

Is XP popping up the New Hardware wizard? Am guessing so and it's choosing diffferent drivers in the two cases.

When you uninstall the product it's uninstalling and removing/deleting the driver files for the one driver completely as well. So XP goes searching it doesn't find it for that case and chooses something different.

Look in Device Manager for both cases. Find the card under Display adapters. Rt click Properties and look at Driver tab.

Alright, here's the deal.
? Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit, with SP2 RC.
? nVidia Gforce 9600 GT

Never had problems updating the drivers to their latest versions (downloaded from nvidia.com) until I de-installed Spybot (that crappy anti-spyware thing).

After that, everytime I try to install (after a deinstallation) or update the current drivers nothing happens. Install runs fine, copies files, reboots and voila... same drivers as before.

The only drivers that actually I was able to install were the 178.13 via the internal Windows Update. That's it. If I don't install them, the VGA card is shown as "vgasave" in the Device Manager.

I'm quite fed up with this and planning to reinstall Vista, but backuping everything up is going to be a real hassle, that's why I'm trying to find out a possible solution to this beforehand.

Any suggestions?.

Hello. I have a MSI NF750-G55 motherboard which came with Nvidia sound drivers. Windows update even provided an update for the nvidia drivers once I connected to the internet.

However, I also know that there are Realtek sound drivers. Will my system be more stable if I just install the nvidia drivers or should I install the realtek HD drivers too? Or would having 2 sound drivers cause freezes?

I appreciate any advice. So far all my sound works great so that isn't an issue, and I don't really care about having the realtek audio manager.

A:Nvidia sound drivers, realtek drivers, or both?

Basically, if it isn't broke, don't fix it.

The sound is a Realtek chip on the motherboard, thus the Realtek would be the first choice, but if other supplied drivers work and you have all functions there is no need for additional drivers. The Microsoft drivers are actually Realtek drivers (but Microsoft can be several versions behind due to their validation process).

Now to trouble shoot the problem i started googling and heard it might be my PSU (which was deffective) so i got a new one, it works great computer's now a quiet happy camper. However windows is not. Now by installing and uninstalling drivers one by one I have found out that the trouble with my windows environment is that the new ATi card's drivers are craptastique or are clashing with my Nvidia drivers(for the built in stuff of my M2N-E motherboard). I do not have these problems in my Ubuntu environment which further strengthens my belief that it's a Windows driver issue. That would also explain my 10005 system event error (10005 is Dcom failing)

Well that you all for the help in advance

A:omega drivers or nvidia drivers?

The enemy of good, is better.
Wait until you are no longer happy with what you have. Don't get caught up in buying the latest thing just to have the latest product in a good review.

I have a GTS250 made by EVGA. When I installed windows 7, it knew it automatically.

I would prefer to leave it alone, but I am I missing out? Will it perform better with the Drivers from EVGA?

A:Win7 drivers or NVidia drivers?

Do things seem sluggish? Are you having any problems? Anything unstable or acting up? If you answered no, I'd leave things alone.

If I install any video driver updates beyond that which WU wants me to have I end up with an inferior 1280 x 1024 resolution and a grey taskbar and everything is squished. I end up with no nVidia control panel and no higher resolution or landscape setting possible.
I've read the release notes for 181.20 and 181.22 beta and they both supposedly support 1680 x 1050 x 32 @ 60hz W/S for my 7600GS card.
So what gives?
I seem to be doomed to be forever stuck with 179.23, not that I suppose it really matters.

I had a Geforce GT1030 video card in my M81 and each time it booted up, would go to black screen or go to black screen before finishing booting to Win10.  Ive actually tried several different Geforce cards with same results.  I took out card and used onboard video with no problem.  Gonna try ATI cards but seems like an issue with M81 and Geforce driver set.  I have even tried messing with bios settings to no avail. Anyone else experienced this?   Thank you!!

A:M81 and Nvidia drivers

ok, a little more digging found a nvidia compatability list for win7 thru 8.1 but not for 10. interesting part is that i believe a lot of these cards use the same geforce experience drivers.

Hello, 'tis me again.

I am currently on 2.70 drivers for my GeForce 250GTS. I have lately been playing a game called World of Tanks a whole lot.

My question is, does anyone know which driver specifically was made to improve the game World of Tanks? I know certain driver numbers will improve certain games. I don't just want the latest drivers. I'm looking for a specific one that improves World of Tanks. The game is a couple years old by now (and so are the 2.70 drivers, I think). Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

A:Nvidia Drivers

go to nvidia.com and fill in your card where it says drivers and it will find the latest graphics drivers for your card.

Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies

Never heard of using a certain driver for a certain game. Now maybe a certain VIDIE CARD for a certain game, that I`ve heard of.

In Device Manager, I can't find my NVidia GeForce 6150SE.

A:What NVidia drivers do I have?

No, the 6150 is an onboard graphics "Card", so the driver is part of the chipset. If you look under Chipset, what do you find?

I've experienced system lockups when the system returns from Monitor Off or Sleep states using the new Nvidia 197.13 version GeForce Vga drivers with an Asus/NVidia GeForce 8400 GS video card and Windows 7 x86.

Reverting to the 196.21 version seems to have fixed the problem....

The 197.16's work fine for me.

today i got an nvidia geforce 6600 256mb agp. i installed the drivers needed & noticed there are wmd drivers on the disk. do i need these drivers? i tried installing them & it said this driver has not passed windows driver signing or something like that. i clicked on continue anyway, but it says error(10 or 010). anyone know why? thanks
 

A:nvidia drivers

The only driver you need and should install is the latest ForceWare driver from nVidia's website. Any drivers shipped on CD's are always out of date. And don't worry about the 'not passed test' message from Windows, it doesn't matter if you're using the official nVidia driver.

Hi, I just have a quick question about graphics card drivers.

When I download and install a new driver, can I delete the old version's folder? Or will that mess up something?

Thanks

A:Nvidia Drivers

You can, I just let them sit there my self.
But it's not going to hurt anything to get rid of them, I think most people hang on to one or two in case they have problems with the new ones.
