Hi everyone. Recently, I've had a computer that has ran windows XP for years. Recently, I switched out my hard drive for a blank one with more space and installed Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit version. Everything installed fine but the screen resolution is too low (640x480). I've tried to change it but it won't allow me too. In addition it does not have any color settings outside of 16bit. I have a standard VGA graphics adapter with an up to date driver. I also completed a windows update for the whole system. What's up with my computer? Why was I able to have a higher resolution on my XP for years and now have such a low one on Vista?

My graphics chip type is Intel(r)845G/845GL/845GE/845GV

I recently purchased a ATI TV wonder USB 2.0 capture card for my laptop. The problem is that when i open the ati tv capture program that came with it. A pop up saying "EZLOOK requires the color display to be 32 bit per pixel" the main problem is that I found that the Intel Graphics conrtoler 82815 on my Dell Inspiron 2500 doesnt support 32 bit color. With another computor i would just buy a new graphics card however i believe that is imposible for my laptop and the Graphis controler, i believe, is in the motherboard. Is there something i can do or will i have to buy a new laptop? Yes I've tried updating the driver from the intel support site. I had to do that before or the program would crash right durring the startup screen.

Good day and welcome to the community.Please provide more information about your system (model, OS, recent updates, etc), otherwise it will be difficult for the community to assist you. We will also be able to confirm that your post is in the proper forum.
In general, there are very few laptops that ever offered the ability to upgrade the graphics system (MXM daughter card). On most systems with a discrete GPU, it is soldered to the system board.Regards.

Hey Jaalhu, Most of the laptops have gfx processors so you'd have to swap the proc. For example, Intel HD Graphics 520 or 620 in processor. You can always lookup your graphics properties by searching "msinfo" on your computer then expanding Components and select display. Hope this helps.

Hello, Just purchased the ideapad 500s...love the laptop but after a computer scan through the lenovo solution center, i keep getting a failed result because of the intel graphics 520 hd card.  The 'mathematical operations test' keeps failing.  I have re-installed the driver through the lenovo support website but it did not take care of it.  is this because of Windows 10?  I am thinking there are still some quirks with the operating system and compatability with hardware. Thank you.

A:Ideapad 500s - graphics card issue

I've never owned a Lenovo laptop until recently, I've always bought my computers from Dell. However, a couple of week ago, I decided to purchase the Ideapad 500 and I'm already having an issue with the Intel Graphics Card. When I watch videos, like from YouTube, the images keep scrambling and there is a horizontal, white band of interference that keeps flashing at the bottom of the screen. I've even started getting the blue and black error screens. I ran the Lenovo Solutions Center app and got the same result. There was a failure with the Intel HD Graphics Card, "Mathematical Operations Test." Here is the Results Code: WVC007002-RK8WFH. I checked the Intel website for the latest version of the graphics card to see if mine is out of date, and it is. My version is, which was released, 8/24/2015. The new version is, which was released, 10/26/2015. The recommendations given by the Intel website for updating the driver, seem to address the issues I'm having with the blue and black screens. Anyway, since my driver is out-of-date, I downloaded and tried to install this latest one, but I got an error message, saying it must be done by the manufacture. I then checked Lenovo's website to see if they had it for downloading, but the only graphics card that Lenovo has available is out-of-date too. I have a two-year warranty, but I don't want to ship my laptop just to have my graphics card updated.

First off I have an ideapad y510p with a Gt755m, So a little while ago i got a BSOD with the code driver power state failure after updating the driver and the laptop would constantly restart only to get the same error code over and over and I was unable to launch safemode, Going into the bios i was able to convert the graphics settings from discreate to UMA and this switched to the intel graphics allowing me to access windows and activate safe mode. Long story short I tried several different methods to fix the problems but the error code kept arising so i finally settled to uninstalling the device and its drivers and restarted the laptop. Now the graphics card won't even be detected and I can't install any drivers because the software says no compatible hardware is detected. Im just curious but does anyone have any solutions or ideas? Or is the GPU just dead?
*Note - I also forgot to mention I did change the BIOS option from UMA back to discrete

My graphics card or driver is stopped by windows (code 43) after fall creators update and bios update from lenovo website (lenovo service bridge). It was perfectly fine before and now i have uninstalled my graphics driver and have tried to reinstall several times but it has always failed. I tried to install the driver i got from lenovo website and the nvidia website but neither worked. The bios update is this BIOS Update for Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows 8 (64-bit), Windows 10 (64-bit) - Notebook3JCN29WW2017/06/07I don't know what went wrong because both the fall creators update and bios went well.

Recently I noticed that my resolution was maxed at 1024*768 and i couldnt go any higher than that and in all of my frustration and attempts to figure out why this was occuring i managed to disable my graphics card and now upon startup, everything seems fine while the windows XP logo loading page is up then when the blue screen should appear and the desktop, all i get is a blank screen. It seems like the comp is startin properly, just that i have no graphics. Ive tried to go into safe mode but while it begins to load it then stops at agp440.sys which i then disabled in the recovery console but then it just stops at the previous process and so on.

Does anyone know how I can re-enable my graphics card or fix this problem about not being able to get into safe mode???

I cant find anywhere in BIOS where I can re-enable it... I've also taken out the mobo batt and reset CMOS settings but still no go!!!

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Hi Yall,
So I have successfully (I think) installed my new Radeon R7 250 "low profile" graphics card on my Dell Optiplex 9020.  I plugged it in the motherboard, started up the computer then went to Device Manager to update the drivers--which I did.  Side note: Ever since plugging the graphics card into the motherboard, some tasks like starting programs or starting windows take 2-10X as long as they used to.  Anyhow, it then asked for a restart, which I did.  The computer still took extra long to start any program, and when I plugged the monitor into the graphics card all I got was a black screen. 
Take two:  I then read that I should have uninstalled my current graphics driver (Intel integrated HD graphics) before I installed my new graphics card, but failing this, I could uninstall my old graphics card and change the default graphics card in the bios.  I uninstalled the old card and went to the bios, but could not change the default...can't remember exactly what it called it, graphics controller or something.  I could see that intel HD graphics was still the default (this is after uninstalling intel HD graphics and then restarting) but could find no way to change this.  Supposedly dell will make the switcheroo on its own...but it doesn't seem to have. 
Take three:  Next I physically removed the graphics card, restarted the computer, then physically inserted the graphics card again, then started the comp... Read more

So, when I am using the Windows lock screen, especially when I am not currently signed in, Windows tends to set my lock screen accent color to purple, much like my wife's account on the computer. She has chosen a purple accent color for her account, which is fine, except that mine is red. Now, this is not really a huge issue, as everything is normal once I have logged in, but the fact that everyone else's account is normal and it isn't assigning that color to any other accounts is extremely annoying. I've just been dealing with it for the past few months and I'm just tired of it.

Does anyone have any possible solutions to this? Or maybe an explanation as to why this would be happening? Thanks.

I'm updating a friend's computer. It already came with Windows 8.1. It's an Asus Transformer T100.

I have this strange problem. Normally, the screen has the correct color and brightness. However, whenever I'm using Windows Mail (Windows 8 app), the screen will change to this yellowish/grayish hue or tint. I switch to another app or a desktop program and the screen returns to normal. Only with this app do I have this problem!

I went to color profiles and management to see if it was a setting. I'm not very familiar with color profiles so I didn't do anything. I did run the screen calibration utility. No fix.

I turned off adaptive brightness.

It's just Windows 8 Mail that has the problem!

A:Windows 8 Mail changes screen color.color profile problem?

I found out what's the problem is.

Asus has a utility called Asus Reading Mode or something like that. You can add apps to that list and any apps on that list will cause the screen to change color to make it more readable I suppose. You can disable the feature by flipping the toggle switch in the app. Then all the apps will maintain the correct screen color.

Hey all,

I have a question regarding the font/background colors on the Windows 7 log screen. I just accepted a position with a school and a few computers have customized log screen font colors/backgrounds. The Windows 7 classic background is there, but the username and password boxes have been changed. For example, one computer has green text that sits on a black background for both username and password. Another has a different combination of colors. I've searched related topics but am having trouble finding a good, clear cut solution. I basically just want to reset the log screen back to the default white background with black text for each box.

Anyone advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

I am building a PC for my mate and here are the specs so far:

P5N-E SLI (I bet you heard that 1million times)

Intel Q6600

2GB DDR2 800MHz

EV Gamer case (with PSU included...)

500GB 7200rpm 16MB cache Samsung

Lightscribe 20x DVD/CD R+W

So now I have a choice to make... the graphics card and screen.

1). He will be using this PC primarily for gaming, which is why I chose a good processor and big HDD.

2). My total cost at the moment is £291.16 (GBP, which is 1/2 dollar).

3). The budget is anywhere in the reigon below £1000, please note I need a screen, speakers (although these will be £50-£100, sound card AND the graphics card, so no rediculously high prices graphics cards.

4). He asked me for good graphics.

5). Must be from http://www.ebuyer.com.

6). Must be 512MB+, I can have 2x 512MB cards or 1x 1GB, but I will let you guys (more experts than me) tell me if 512 or better etc.

Ok, it's a long list but to summ up, it's a graphics card costing up to £200, give or take, anything lower is excellent.
I have been looking at nVidia 9 series and GeForce 8, it must be nVidia.

For screens, currently I have chosen the Samsung 2243NWX 22" monitor with 1680x1050 300c/d 8000:1 screen, which is at http://ebuyer.com/product/145315, although I am open to suggestions on anything else, up to £200-£250.

The PC meets all the minimum requirements for this card however all I get is a blank screen. I have also contacted Sapphire support who will likely suggest uninstalling / updating every driver , flashing bios, reinstalling windows.... but does anybody here know if there is any reason why this graphics card should not work with this PC / motherboard.

Hi everyone, this is my first post and i hope its in the right place!

Last night i turned on my computer for the first time that day, and all seemed fine; windows logo came up with the little loading bar, but instead if loading the desktop, up came a black screen. Funny thing was that windows was working in the background! I read through people having the same problem in these forums, and it turns out its not an overly uncommon problem; graphics card issue. I booted in safe mode, and uninstalled the graphics card and drivers, and when i rebooted it was fine, albiet in low resolution. i downloaded and reinstalled the drivers from my providers site, and when i rebooted i had the same problem. So now i am sitting typing this (the text looks huge on this resolution) and have a simple question. Is the issue here that the graphics card is broken? I hope this isnt the case as it is an onboard card and will cost about $900 for a replacement. My specs are below (i'm a bit of a gumby when it comes to computers so go easy on me

So i tried taking the card out and booting with onboard graphics and that worked fine. So im thinking how do I set it to boot onto onboard over my gts 250 then maybe try installing the drivers from there in windows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
