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.)

ok so i can not get certain games to run right.

i recently upgraded my gfx card from a 5700LE to a 6800GT...both agp. also got a new PSU due to the fact the gfx card called for the 400watt.

i did this because the 5700LE really couldnt handle games all that well...such as call of duty 2, battlefield 2 and anything else half decent and newer...

now the problem im having is i can not get battlefield 2 to run basically...up untill u actually start the game everything runs fine....hits up to 100fps (using FRAPS). but then as ur picking ur spawn point it hits like 17fps...then when it goes into the game its at like 2 or 3 fps.

this is the case no matter what foreware i seem to use...from 77.77 up to the newest beta 163.xx.

no matter how i change some settings in the control panel nothing seems to make any difference. i have all the settings on low and all...i mean i would assume with this newer card i should be able to run battlefield 2 on medium, call of duty runs fine with the textures on extra with everything possible enabled.

i been installing and unintstalling driver versions for the last 2 days now and im not getting no where. yes i have tried removing the game and reinstalling it. nothing any difference.
the cards not over heating that i noticed or anything.

i would really love any ideas at all!!

maybe a specific forceware or something??

pleas help!! lol!!

Hi, this may be a slightly dumb question but ill ask it anyway.

I am currently using an XFX Nvidia GeForce FX5200 Video card and when i was checking for driver upgrades(due to another problem) i tried the xfx site however the driver i got with the card is version 77.77 and the one on their site is 66.93. I felt this was strange so checked the Nvidia website and their's was version 84.21.

I recently installed a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS video card on my HP Pavilion Desktop. Until this time all video was controlled by an Intel onboard chipset. (ASUS mb)

I ran 'Autoruns' and the following drivers were shown to load at boot:
+ "i81x" "Miniport Driver for Intel Graphics Driver"
+ "iAimFP0" "Digital Display Minidriver for Intel(R) Graphics Driver"
+ "iAimFP1" "Digital Display Minidriver for Intel(R) Graphics Driver"

My question is since my system is now using the graphics card, can these drivers be safely disabled from loading at boot?

Yes, or you can uninstall the Intel Graphics driver from Add & Remove Program(or Programs & Features), which is the recommended procedure.

I have an Nvidia 9800 gt video card that was working perfectly until a few days ago. I'm running Windows 7 with 8 gigs of ram. I bought the card about 4 months ago and I never had a problem after installing it. Now, it's overheating all of a sudden and putting my monitor in sleep mode and only way to get it working again is to reboot. I've opened my case and the vid card fan is running. I installed nTune and set the fan speed to a 100 percent. My idle temp is between 60c-70c. But when i start up a game, after about 5 minutes, it goes up to 105c. Any ideas on what I can do to keep it from getting so hot? I love my house cold, so it's about 70F in my bedroom. Oh, the min requirements for the card said at least 400w psu, mine is only 300w but since it was working, I didn't bother upgrading it. Think that is my problem???? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Video Card Question

Aren't you going to need to use the card that comes with it?

It seems to be the general consensus that there is no such thing as the 103M. Some people suggest that the numbers may have been switched by someone at Compaq and it is actually the 130M. In any case, they are similar if not identical.

Here is where you can make comparisons:


Every game will specify what video card characteristics are required, so consult the game site for what cards you need.

I need to get a new video card for a friend's computer, and just have a basic question.

The computer specs (Dell 8300) say that the AGP bus is rated at a max of 32 bit, yet all of the new cards I see are 64 bit or more. I'm guessing that the 64 bit cards will work and perhaps simply be limited to the rating of the motherboard. Is that true or do I need to search for a 32 bit card?

Thank you in advance.

A:Solved: Video card question

You'll be fine getting any AGP card you select, really. This motherboard is Socket 478 - therefore several years old, it's not set to start handling true 64 Bit instructions, but will process 32 bit. Just make sure to pick up an AGP, not a PCI-Express video card.

Since posting recently about display problems, and concluding that I should get a new video card, but having my usual inner conflicts over price vs. quality and being too cheap to just get it done... I was looking in device manager at my two video adapter listings. I disabled one and got a slightly better screen (which still sucks) and figured why not disable the other one too and see what happens? Nothing changed at all. So if I have my video card disabled and I still have patterns on my screen, does that mean that the problem lies elsewhere? And... what device is enabling me to see anything at all?
There is so much I don't get about this display stuff - is there a web site or a book you can recommend that explains hardware issues in a fairly straightforward way? Thanks! Vdah

Would like to be able to play games like "Far Cry 4" on the highest settings with perfect FPS.

A:Solved: Video card question

Here is a benchmark breakdown of high-end video cards: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html

You currently have a fairly good video card coming in at a benchmark score of 6,159. Granted, benchmarks are not a definitive say on if you will get better performance out of a card but they are a very good indicator.

If you are looking to get a video card with better performance than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770, your best bet would be to get a card that is higher on the list/with a higher benchmark score.

Here are Far Cry 4's recommended system requirements: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/far-cry-4/12380/?p=r#rec

One of the recommended cards is better in terms of benchmarks than your current card, one is directly under.

When it comes to video cards, you generally get what you pay for. You are likely going to have to shell out a good amount of cash in order to run a brand new game known for it's intense graphics with highest settings and "perfect FPS".

In short, when you expectations are that high, your budget has to be high. There's no way around it. If you really want that type of experience, you will need to get one of the top 5 cards on the benchmarks list. I have a GTX 780 Ti and often play BF4. Even with that card I don't get "perfect FPS" on the highest settings. I would say it does an excellent job, but it's not perfect.

A:Solved: Video card question

XFX is a great graphics card manufacturer, and I see no reason why this product from them would be a "dud". Only 1-egg review is by a retard, so don't look at that. Other cons seem to be from delivery and a case without proper cooling, and other casual mishaps.
It will 99% sure work in a 1.x PCI-E 16x slot.
Make sure you have enough good a power supply for the card. Post your PSU model, remember, watts don't mean anything in PSUs.
Also, look at Radeon 4850 if you want to save a bit. It won't do PhysX, but...

I have an old monitor. Can't find the off-the-wall manufacturer in driverguide.
I'm thinkin it was in dev mngr as a SiS 626 on an old PC I had (I could be terribly wrong here).
If I start fooling around with drivers, the monitor may become garbled and I won't be able to get in to see to make changes... is this a correct assumption? I recall making some changes to a PentI I had some time ago and having to blindly revert the changes cos the monitor was using colors it couldn't handle.
I just formatted/installed win98se on the e-machine, haven't ran win update cos when I did it initially, the sys just hung cos all the updates.
I ran Belarc and got this:
VIA Bus Master PCI IDE Controller Standard PCI Graphics Adapter
(VGA) [Display Adapter] default monitor
I'm sitting at 16 colors/640x480 pixels... and need to bump it up a notch; say 800x600???
Also strange is as win loads it uses the full viewable area but as my desktop comes up I have a 1" or so black border... I can't alter this at all using adj on the monitor. Any clues?

A:Solved: Video Card Driver Upgrade

ATI has a newer driver out, Catalyst 5.13. Visiontek only posts a link to the same driver that ATI provides so I'd always get the one from the ATI website as it may be newer, as in this case.

Here's the link: https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&questionID=640

They offer two different downloads for the same driver. One is the full package and the other is just broken up into three parts for dial-up users with slow connections.

So last night I tried to update the drivers for my Nvidia GeForce GXT 260 by going into the Device Manager on the Hardware tab in System Properties to do so.

Well this failed and it said it was going to revert to the older version, however when it did so it came back on in the lowest settings and internet pages were scrolling very slowly.

I figured it was the way I went about updating it so I went to the Nvidia drivers pages and did it from there. Same results.

So my question is how can I properly update the drivers OR at least get it back to the way it was so web pages scroll at the proper speed.

A:Solved: Video Card Memory Question..

Video cards usually have their own, on-board memory and do not share system memory. But some do share system memory and that amount is limited and needs to be set in BIOS.

And sometimes some system memory is set aside for textures, too. The amount can be set in BIOS setup as the machine boots. It is usually called "Aperture Size".

I would guess they have to have the same base graphics processor
for it to work properly.

You can use a single nvidia graphics card on a crossfire motherboard.
Just the one card by itself.

Hi, I just bought a new video card, it's a Gigabyte nVidia 8400GS. I just put it in the PCI-E slot and was about to plug it in to the power supply but for some reason I can't find a power connector on the card. It's not a defect as the picture on the website is the same as the card.

There's only a little two-pin connector (like the one the fan is plugged in to) but no other ports, is it possible for it to get it's power from the PCI-E port or am I being stupid and missing something vital?

I can take a photo if needed but I'm pretty sure I'm just missing something


A:Solved: Really quick question - Video Card

What Model number is the card? I checked the 8400GS cards on the Gigabyte site and none of them seemed to have a power connector. So I would say that it indeed does draw its power from the PCIe Slot.

My computer did not come with a drivers CD, so I can't get it from disc.

When I bought my computer, all it had for graphics was the integrated video card, so I bought another graphics card to use instead. To get it to work, I uninstalled the driver for the integrated card and installed my new card.

The other day, my video card's fan stopped working and now it has an overheating problem. I plan to get a new card, but in the meantime, I want to use my integrated videocard so I can continue using my computer. However, when I plugged the monitor into it, it didn't give me a display on my monitor, so I'm assuming it needs the driver reinstalled.

I went to the website to find my computer model to download the driver, but it offers about 4 different display drivers and I don't know which one I need. How do I figure out what driver to download to get my integrated videocard to work?

This is my computer model:

I think mine is slightly newer than that since it came installed with Windows 7 64-bit instead of Vista. It also runs the Core 2 Quad, not the Core 2 Duo.

I wass just wondering if someone could tell me if I am on the right track or not

Power supply went out on the computer
Put in a new powersupply and everything comes back on except the monitor.

The monitor lite is green at first and then turns to amber and nothing comes on.

I tried another monitor and it does the same thing so I am guessing it is the video card.
I would not think it would be the cord to the monitor cause that means the other monitor cord would also be bad and the odds are good that that would not be the case

So am I on the right track that it would be the video card not getting from the tower to the monitor??

It is a built in video card so I would have to get a PCI Video card cause there is no AGP slot.

Can anyone confirm these assumtions??

Hey , sorry to bother, but could sumone please answer me a quick question...
(plz no suggestions on new/better motherboards or graphics cards)

So, i've decided to get a new graphics card , but i'm confused, wat is the meaning of the memory interface e.g. sum video cards state the memory interface is 64bit and sum say its 128bit, now wat is meaning of that?

I've got an old motherboard and i'm just looking for a video card upgrade so i've decided to get the Powercolor X1650, so it says the memory interface is 128 bit will this work on my old ASUS P5PE-VM?

Plz help im reli confused~!


A:Solved: Video Card Interface... (Quick Question)

That is the type of memory used on the card.

You do understand that the 1650 comes are either an agp or pci-e correct? You need the agp version to work with that board.

The next thing to consider is that card is going to use more power than the onboard type video that your mb is now using. Do you have a power supply that is capable of powering your video card? I would be looking for a min 350-400W with at least 20amp on the 12V rail.

I'm building an older computer that utilizes the Intel 440BX chipset, a PentiumIII 1 GHz CPU, and the Matrox Millennium G400 video card.

The question I have pertains to the combined characteristics of the chipset, CPU and video card:

Since this particular CPU operates at a front side bus speed of 133 MHz, it means that to achieve maximum speed I will be exceeding chipset spesification which I recall is 100 MHz. With the 440BX chipset, the AGP bus is configured from the FSB by using a ratio of either 1:1 (66 MHz) or 2:3 (100 MHz). 66 MHz I gather is the same as AGP 2x.

The video card is according to some reviews I looked at good for AGP 4x so my question is as follows:

Should I set the AGP bus ratio to 1:1 or 2:3 when running at the FSB of 133 MHz?

At 2:3 the speed of the AGP bus is ~88 MHz, at 1:1 it is 133 MHz.

According to logic, even 1:1 ratio would still be within the limits of the graphics card. After all if AGP 2x = 66 MHz, then AGP 4x = 133 MHz, right?

I don't dare trust just logic in case I'm missing something important, so could someone tell me if I've come to the right conclusion?

A:Solved: Chipset/video card overclocking question

After a bit of researching (and actually putting the computer together) I now have my answer.

I discovered the AGP clock and multiplier are not linked things, and that in fact the AGP bus frequency is never supposed to exceed 66 MHz.

Unless the motherboard in question has a 1:4 AGP divider, you cannot use the 133 MHz front side bus without overclocking the AGP bus. This is the case with most Intel 440BX chipset based motherboards.

In my case, the safest option was to use the 2:3 AGP divider, which overclocks the AGP bus to 88 MHz. Out of spec, but so far the machine has not shown any signs of instability.

When I right click on my desktop and select properties to get the contrast rates of my video card and the lowest was 800 x 600 and the highest was 1600 x 1200. If I buy a 22" widescreen monitor it says the max resolution is 1680 x 1050, would I use 1600 X 1200 as it's correct settings?

My current video card is an ATI Radeon 4200 Series Integrated Chipset. I have never had any issues with it until yesterday, when Steam offered to handle all of my video card driver updates automatically. I was hesitent, but figured that it would be one less thing to worry about. Boy, was I wrong.

After installing what it said were the latest drivers for my video card, the resolution immediately became very low and I noticed that I had lost my ATI Catalyst program to manage all of my graphics settings. I was unable to set the resolution back to the way it was because the resolution menu options were different and anytime I went too high the monitor would say that the input signal was out of range. The updated drivers also replaced my ATI Catalyst program with a seperate program called AMD Graphics Engine. It does not work and shortly after loading Windows, my computer gives me an error message stating that there are is no recognized AMD Video Card.

When running Windows in normal mode, everything takes an eternity to load, oftenitimes timing out alltogether forcing me to do a hard shut down of my PC. After doing a hard shut down, I've had to run Chkdsk to check for errors and now system restore can not retrieve any prior restore points.

I've tried everything from uninstalling reinstalling all of the drivers from the Device Manager to manually attempting to install the drivers from the AMD website while in safe mode. When I run it in normal mode, Windows f... Read more

Hey All,

In Windows 7, I followed the instructions below to find my graphics driver version number.


In Device Manager, what is the NAME of what I am looking for? I don't see anything labeled graphics driver on my system? Might need to update the video driver in the future.


A:Solved: How do I find the Version Number of the Video Card Driver I Have?

Click the + in the Display Adapters heading.

The graphics device should be listed there.

Double-click that graphics device to open its properties window.

Click the "Driver" tab.

The driver date and driver version should be listed there.

I have a OCZ 500W power supply, but it doesn't have the 6-pin connector my ATI 5750 needs. Alright, so I have the splitter included with my card that splits the 6-pin into 2 Molex plugs. I'm pretty sure I need both of those plugged in, but I'm unsure of the orientation of the wires. I took a picture of how I *think* it should be set up:

So you can see the longer end will connect to my PSU with the 6-pin, and the shorter end, also with the 6-pin, will connect to my GPU. My question is if the end coming from the PSU is right. The cable coming from the PSU end doesn't actually "split" into 2 Molex plugs. It goes to one Molex, then continues to another Molex, and then continues to a plug, that I can't identify.

I'm assuming this is right because my PSU is "SLI Ready", and it has two of the cables you see in the picture (the longer one), meaning one for each card. Sorry if this is confusing, but I really don't want to damage anything

I was given an old laptop which I am planinng to use as a media center by plugging it into my TV, but I’m having difficulty with the video card. I’m running an S-Video cable into the TV, but the picture switches between black/white and colour once every second, at regular intervals. It’s temperemental, because sometimes if I change the video settings of the driver and then change back it’ll be OK, until I reboot or go into standby.

I know the cable and the monitor works fine with this and the settings are OK, because I used to occasionally plug my newer laptop into the TV via S-video.

It has video card S3 ProSavageDDR driver currently installed, and I know this to be the latest driver.

I’m not bothered about having a video driver that’ll give my high-res, because I’m using it straight through my TV, so I’ll only be using 800x600 anyway.

So, is there a generic video card driver to make the S-video out work fine? cheers
