Q: graphic driver can't detect graphic card

Hi, i'm running window 7 32-bit OS.
My graphic card is (ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics)
My problem is that after i went to www.amd.com, downloaded,uninstall the old catalyst and installed a new catalyst which matches my OS and yet i got this message whenever i tried to run that catalyst.
"No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly.
Please install the AMD driver appropriate for you AMD hardware"
can anyone help me solve this problem?

I've downloaded the catalyst alot of times and kept install and uninstall but i'm still having the same problem.
I really appreciate any suggestions..

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.)

I have a secondhand ATI HD 5770 Graphic Card, i have used it for some time, but the fan is working slow (30% on AMD Catalyst Control center), i tried to clean the fan and unscrew the fan and the heatsink to clean it, after i put it all together, the fan seems better but my PC can not detect it now? How can i damage it?

When i connect Monitor using the card's slot the monitor does not detect any signal and i connect to the motherboard's it detect signal and start the windows. When i check hrough device manager (while connecting the card on the slot, but using motherboard's port), i did not detect any card on the slot?

Did i damage it? Any help would be appreciated.

A:Cannot Detect Graphic Card

Did you reconnect the graphic card's power supply connection(s) when you reinstalled the card? The manual for that GPU shows that it needs a power connector.

Hi, I'm new here because I've been searching everywhere and I can't find an answer. Recently, I bought and downloaded The Sims 3 Supernatural, because I'm a huge fan and have all the games. Well, after I played the first time, and shut it off, my screen resolution went really big, so I adjusted that, then I noticed that my computer has been very laggy, and it recently told me it doesn't support 'Aero effects' So, I assumed it was the game, and uninstalled it. Then I re installed it, and now it is telling me that it doesn't have a graphics card to support it. I am not very intelligent when it comes to computers, and I have no idea what to do. I went to the screen to check what graphics card I has, and it says that it is unavailable.

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.

A:Clean install windows 7 cant detect graphic card!

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 ...
Start with the Chipset Drivers ... Also Post your Model Number please ...
And we shall take things from there ...

First of all:
I don't know too much about computers, so use easy language please.

I have sent in my computer to get repaired and got it back yestersay. Since then i've been trying to get it to work properly again.
I can't play any of the games I used to play before I sent it in to get repaired (for example, Battlefield 3). I can start dota2 but it looks pretty messed up. I can run minecraft though ^^

Anyway, after a lot of questions asked, trying out different stuff and after getting further and further to the end of this problem I've come to this:

My computer shows me that I have an nvidia geforce 7025 nforce 630a graphic card.
Although it says in the computer description that it SHOULD have a AMD HD 6870 1GB GDDR 5.
My screen isn't plugged in the graphic card, since it doesn't recieve anything from there. It is plugged directly to the motherboard.
So, from what I understand the nvidia card is the integrated graphic card or am I totally wrong?

Anyway, the device manager can only find the nvidia card and I cannot run any game smoothly on this computer.
Before I realized this possibility I've tried to download newer drivers for the nvidia card, but it didn't help.

Please help me to get my ADM HD 6870 1GB GDDR 5 to run!
I'm trying to google for solutions, but I'll give this site a shot.

A:Graphic card isn't found. Only finds my integrated graphic card. Help!

Hi, I have recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit,and I have several problems listed below:

1. My games are lagging like crazy, can't move the character, even the older games like CS 1.6, Half-Life 2, Tomb Raider Legend, Sims 2...

2. When I had aero effects on, some random pieces of open windows and taskbar flickering, but removed when I put the Windows 7 Basic theme on.
So I was wondering, is this because of the driver, because everything was working fine when I had XP installed, and is there a way to fix it???

P.S. I have chatted with an NVIDIA support technician, and he said that I perform a clean installation of the driver, which I did, but nothing still.

A:Need help with Graphic Card driver

Have you performed a clean install of the Windows 7 or you upgraded from XP?
I usually suggest to make clean OS installs so possible errors might be avoided. If you didn't upgrade, try using Driver Sweeper and then make sure you install the proper drivers for your videocard: 7600GS - Windows 7 x32 drivers.

A:Graphic Card Driver Problem

There could be a problem with the driver you are installing - or your video card just doesn't like it. You can try installing a previous version (older version) driver to test.

Or your video card may have gone south (died - the slow death). If it works when using the generic drivers that load from Windows but then fails when you load the nVidia drivers it means that the advanced features of the card - like 3d graphics - are failing or have failed.

You can play with the settings for the card in the nVidia Control panel to see if you can get it to work with the driver, or at the very least isolate wherein the problem lies. If you have played with these settings in the past you should try resetting the factory defaults.

Also try re-seating the card, and check that all the contacts are clean and there is no dust in the slot. Re-check the power cord(s) to the card too.

A:How do i install a new Graphic card driver

What you're asking is to change hardware, not software... which isn't exactly updating. You would have to buy the specific graphics card to do that.

A:NVIDIA Graphic Card Driver

You're very welcome. I don't know the specs on the cards other than I know they work on W7, because I installed two of each in 4 d530's and they ran W7 just fine for years. I did not upgrade the power supplies, and never had a problem.  I don't believe you can upgrade the P/S on any of those PC's. I got the cheapest ones I could find at the time, which is why I didn't go with all of one brand or the other. I think the 9600's are more available and cheaper nowadays.  They should have 128 MB of onboard memory. Here's a 9600 for $13 bucks. This will only work on the CMT. http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-9600-SE-128M-Video-Graphics-Card-AGP-102-A03509-10-DVI-VGA-S-VIDEO-/321613165179?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4ae1a3727b If you have the SFF you will need to find a low profile model with low profile mounting brackets.

OK no clue where to start. I have had a new comuter built for me. The guys great, but he can't seem to get the problem to happen while he has the computer. During games (so far only games) my screen will either freeze, go black, or give me an error message. When I can get my computer rebooted, sometimes it downloads the problem to Microsoft and then sends me to a screen that tells me there was a problem with my driver, but ATI has no solution for the problem. Is there anything I can do?

Would having all of my OLD files (I had to purchase a new hard drive) on the hard disk mess something up? The old files are All in a folder marked OLD files.

I am so lost. And to top it all off, I am not very savvy on the programming files and such. I kinda know where to look, but things have changed so fast, I can't keep up.

A:Problems With Ati Graphic Driver And/or Card

First of all welcome to the forum!!!

Sorry to hear about your problem. It would be handy to know the specification of your computer, if you are unsure ask your friend to detail what components are inside your comptuer, also what operating system do you have. (make and model of graphics card, processor, memory, etc) We can then get a better idea of what your problem is!!

Hope that gets you started

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

Hi Serious Gamer,

You could try running the Intel Driver Update Utility. Completely safe directly from the Intel site, it should find any drivers that our out of date and update them. Intel® Driver Update Utility

I know you said you ran multiple programs like that and if you've already tried that one, just let me know. I was trying to find a specifications sheet about your friends laptop, best I could find was this. Product data-sheet Toshiba Satellite L70-A-13P notebooks (PSKNEE-03X02WFR)

Does his laptop have the discrete graphics card or the on-board graphics?

I'm trying to get autocad to recognize the graphics card of my new laptop. autocad tests numerous cards for compatibility, and on their website, my card is listed as a certified recommended card. But when I run the autocad tunelog, it lists:
3D Device
Name :
Manufacturer :
Chip set :
Memory :
Driver :
Your machine contains a 3D Device that is not certified.

The driver that autocad tested the card with is different than my laptop’s graphics card drive. Perhaps that's the problem. The comments section for my particular card says: “This driver is supported on HP Compaq 8510w laptops and can be downloaded from here.” Now I wonder if I should actually install this driver... if that driver would work with a different laptop? I'm afraid that might be a problem because (from what I understand), it is only recommended to use driver updates provided by the laptop maker. Does installing a different graphic card driver void warranties on laptops? is it reversible by a restore point?

My notebook specs:
Lenovo T61p
Windows XP professional
Intel Core2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz
2GB RAM, 160 GB hard drive space
Nvidia Quadro FX 570M

Hello all,

I have a strange problem with my nvidia graphics card driver. Recently I did a format of my laptop and re?nstalled Windows 7 Home Premium. Everything seems to run oke, the only issue I have is that I can't get my nvidia graphics driver installed. Windows tells me my graphics card drivers aren't up to date so I went to the Nvidia website and let it scan my laptop. When it's done it tells me to download the driver and install it. When I run the driverupdate program from the Nvidia website, it first scans my systems and then comes to tell me that it cannot find the graphic cards hardware so it cannot install? Can anybody help me with this?

A:Latest driver for my Switchable Graphic card......

jeagerjaques, welcome to the forums.

This is one of those cases where you're pretty much stuck with whatever is available from the laptop manufacturer. Reason being is that they have modded the INF's and a few other files (they have not modded the actual drivers themselves though) to work with both the display in the laptop as well as how the switching works, any other drivers you find won't have the necessary modifications to them to work.
