Going from ATI to Nvidia graphics card

Q: Going from ATI to Nvidia graphics card

Is there anything that I need to do in order to make the switch easy do I have to uninstall drivers before I install the new card or what?

Preferred Solution: Going from ATI to Nvidia graphics card

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.)

A: Going from ATI to Nvidia graphics card

Yes, I would suggest that you uninstall ATI drivers & Catalyst Control Center(and anything to do with ATI) prior to installing the new card. After that it's an easy switch, install the graphics card, the latest Nvidia drivers, sofware & utilities, and you're good to go.

Hi for the last 4 months ive been trying to fix a problem that ive been having with my computer.
about 4 months ago I did a major pc upgrade where i replaced my motherboard, processor, ram, heat sink, power supply and case, the only things I used from the original computer where 2 HDD's, 1 SDD and my AMD radeon HD 6950 2gb.

Now ive have the most strange issue where i can be watching a video off the HDD or surfing the web on youtube etc and not long after I start the activity my computer will turn off like if I had flicked the switch on the back of the power supply and then it boots back up again and will run fine until i start up an activity again and then it does exactly the same thing and reboots, there is no BSOD shown nor Dumps Created.

Ive tried many things to sort this out and have RMA'ed the power supply and the motherboard (the motherboard wasn't a direct replacement as they didn't sell my original board anymore which was a gigabyte ga-x79-ud5, now i have an asus p9x79 deluxe). I have tried only plugging in one HDD/SSD and then tried a spare HDD when that failed, i have tried one ram stick at a time and still nothing.

now heres where it gets strange whilst trying to rule out differnt hardware i switched my AMD card out for a very old 512mb, pcie 1.0 x16 nvidia graphics and since then my computer has been running marvelously i can have it playing videos for hours, days even(although i havent properly tested for days) and not a single problem at all.

The comparison you are making between GPU brands is pointless as a diagnostic. The MAIN difference I can see is that one card requires external power, and the other one does not. A proper diagnostic would be to test another GPU that requires external power.

I've heard that the specific PSU you bought will sometimes not power all the hardware it is supposed so.
People saying it could barely power a SSD, or even an extra fan.

My thoughts. Try using another PSU, try using a similar GPU. Use your old PSU and see if it still happens for starters.

Hello, and thank you for checking out my post.  My apologies for writing a book, but I'm hoping to give as much detail as needed the first go round. I just received my custom-built T420s (4170-CTO) and have a couple technical questions/concerns about it.  The details of my configuration are located at the bottom of this post. First off, one of the deciding factors of my purchase was the discrete graphics card.  On the T420s I chose NVIDIA NVS 4200M Optimus Graphics 1GB, Intel Core i7-2620M Processor?.  I was thrilled to have more than 256 MB of dedicated graphics memory for my games.  Upon receiving my laptop, though, I ran the Windows Experience Index and saw that the lowest score was the graphics card, which is identified as Intel HD Graphics Family and has 64 MB of dedicated graphics memory.  After my heart started beating again I checked Device Manager and found under Display both Intel HD Graphics Family and NVIDIA NVS 4200M listed as working with up-to-date drivers.  When I configured the laptop online there was no mention of hybrid graphics, so I'm not sure why I have an Intel Graphics card on the machine.  My current laptop that I was looking to replace is a T61p with a NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M graphics card, and only that NVIDIA card is shown under Device Manager and in the Windows Experience / Performance Information.  Thinking that perhaps disabling the Intel card would cause the NVIDIA card to take over, I disa...

A:T420s Nvidia Graphics Card & Express Card Question...

The T420s with Nvidia GPU has two graphics card that can switch on the fly, if you only want the discrete gpu, just go into your bios menu under graphics there is an option to select discrete.With the Nvidia Optimus (which is what you have), it can switch between Nvidia and Intel GPU depending on your application needs. This will allow you to conserve battery or power. Expresscard slot 34 mm slot is occupied by the card reader that you ordered. What you are talking about within the ram slot cover, is the mPCIe slot, which can be occupied by a mSATA drive. http://forum.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/T420s-T400s-T410s-removal-of-4-in-1-SD-card-...

Sounds more like a driver issue. Have you uninstalled and installed the latest video driers for the card?

Latest driver can be found here: http://www.nvidia.com/page/drivers.html
Which appears to be done at this very moment.

You can try this site for the drivers: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=1715

Make sure you use Add or Remove Programs to uninstall the current video drivers.

A:Nvidia Graphics Card Help

You can not increase dedicated video memory, it is what it is. 512 MB

The system (motherboard) can share memory with the video card, my MSI shares 2 GB giving me a total of 4 GB of graphics memory.

Maybe save a little more money before you make a choice.

Hi, I just bought a new nvidia graphics card. it was a 9400 GT.. geforce.. I wanted to install it but I had a few problems..

1. it needed an extra power source comming from the power box to power the card..
2. computer startup (not windows but right when I press the power button)
3. un reconization...

details:

1. The graphics card that I bought came with a supplemental power cord that I had to connect to the computer the cord has to directly connect to the power box... I can't connect directly to the powerbox.. I found 2 female connectors from the power box they are all 4 whole large connectors and the one from my graphics card is only 2 hole small FEMALE connection (if you haven't caught on, female and female connectors don't connect....)so is there anyway of connecting the powerbox to the graphics card because I'm guessing it should be that missing connection that causes stress on the mother board which = slow boot (the computer powers on when I press the on button but makes that sound (like it's going up and down on a rollercoaster if you don't get what I mean then it's like ........vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv(oh loses power again)....vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv( again?)

Well I seem to be only able to use the NT drivers I got with my card unfortunitly when I try and use the XP drivers when I bootup the PC and login to XP it hangs I have to restart and it still hangs which means probably im using the wrong drivers. So what im pritty much saying here is only the NT drivers work. But I dont get any options or nothing in the display properties it just lists the card memory used etc. So okay i can play Medal Of Honor / Return to castle Wolfestein etc probably half life any game that does not detect the card like the new ones like Grand Theft Auto 3 etc. Im annoyed at this i was looking forward to playing Battelfield 1942. Looks like im stuck with what games i got. But why cant it play MOD3 etc which requires a 16mb card and GTA3 dont ? Because it's not proparly installed ? And why does the card hang using the XP drivers or Win2k drivers. its a 64mb Geforce 4 ? And why dont Nvidia offer support ? None at all ...
 

A:Nvidia Graphics card

Nvidia only supplies chipsets. Since they don't build the graphics cards, they don't support them.

I would check with the manufacturer of your video card and try the drivers from them. Usually the manufacturers tweak the drivers a little specifically for their cards.

Hi,

I read on another forum site that a Nvidia Geforce GT630 with 1GB dedicated memory is better than a Nvidia Geforce GT620 with 2GB dedicated memory. Is this true, surely more memory would be a bigger advantage than the slight speed difference between models?

Thanks,
Tom

A:Better Nvidia Graphics card

Usually higher models would perform better than their predecessors but there can be positives and negatives with both.

For example:
ZOTAC GeForce GT 620 2GB DDR3
Clock rate - 700 MHz
Shader Clock - 1400 MHz
Memory Clock - 1066 MHz
Memory Size - 2GB
Memory Interface - 64-bit
Memory Type - DDR3

ZOTAC GeForce GT 630 1GB DDR3
Core clock - 810 MHz
Shader Clock - 1620 MHz
Memory Clock - 1333 MHz
Memory Size - 1GB
Memory Interface - 128-bit
Memory Type - DDR3

1. 630 has higher Clock speeds
2. 630 has bigger Memory Interface
3. Size of memory won't have much impact unless you're using a high resolution or multiple monitors

Hello,

I'm going to keep this question pretty general (non-spec-oriented) and see if it works, forgive me if I don't provide enough information.

I'm planning to purchase a new laptop and have a choice between a laptop that includes an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 card and one that does not include a graphics card. I don't know how to make this decision because I'm clueless about what graphics cards do.

Here is what I will use the laptop for: The most CPU intensive stuff will be Pro Tools 11 and other audio sequencing stuff, Photoshop and Illustrator and other graphics programs, and Camtasia. I have Premier Pro and AfterEffects video processing applications but I don't use them and I think the likelihood that I will become a power user is very low.

I am not a gamer at all.

Based on that, do I need the NVIDIA graphics card?

Again, my apologies if I'm not providing enough background to enable an accurate answer. I'm happy to follow up with more.

Thank you,
Tim

Hi,

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Everything was working fine and dandy until one day I turned off my computer. I have a dual monitor setup. One monitor was connected to the integrated graphics card on the motherboard, while the other monitor was connected to the Nvidia Geforce 8600GT.

When I turned the computer on the next day the monitor connected to the 8600GT stayed in a black screen. I discovered the Device Manager stopped detecting the graphics card altogether as well. However, when I hit the windows+ P button to extend and go into screen resolution it shows 2 monitors. However, the one connected to the 8600GT says "Another Display Not Detected" and the resolution is grayed out. When I move my mouse over, the mouse goes onto the other screen, even though it does not detect the graphics card and the monitor is black!

I have tried and searched EVERYTHING. I have found MANY other people with the same problem and no solution. I switched monitors to make sure they both worked. I have gone into the BIOS and switched it to load the PCI Express graphics card instead of the onboard g-card (there is no option to disable the onboard g-card in BIOS). I went into the Nvidia Management options to make sure it was set to allow dual displays. I have installed older drivers, tried compatibility with Vista, unplugged and replugged the graphics card.

My pc is running windows 7 - 64 bit ultimate. I upgraded the motherboard of my PC in 2010 with second generation i3 processor and 4GB RAM. It has integrated intel graphics already.
Today I installed new Kingston DDR3 – 4GB RAM. My pc has detected it and running fine.

I also installed ZOTAC NVIDIA GT 730 (2GB) DDR5 Graphics Card in its PCI slot.

Unfortunately, when I turn my PC on, the monitor goes in power save mode. The graphic card fan runs smoothly.

I tried the following methods with the graphic card still properly attached within my mother board
1. My monitor connected to the graphic card via VGA cable. Nothing happened
2. My monitor connected to the graphic card via HDMI cable. Nothing happened.
3. My monitor connected to the original old slot (it works fine) through VGA cable. Nothing happened.

However, if I remove my graphic card, my PC runs fine. What should I do? I am running SMPS of 450 W. Upon confirming with my friend, he said that I should use 800-900W to run my graphics card. To my surprise on their official website, Geforce has listed minimum power requirements for my graphic card as 300W.

I've been attempting to install a new driver for my 64MB DDR NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 with TV Out (Dell). Over the past week I've completely uninstalled the current drivers and attempted to reinstall drivers that I have both downloaded (from Nvidia and other sites) as well as the automatic windows update drivers. I have made sure to turn off my antivirus software; I have disconnected from the Internet; I have used programs that claim to clean off abandoned parts of old drivers. Nothing has worked properly.

After 2 hours of support and a new BIOS on a phone call with Dell, they suggested reinstalling my operating system, which I am uninclined to do.

Currently, under Display Adapters in my Device manager, "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)" is listed, with a yellow exclamation point in front of it.

All works OK but I get a crazy flashing screen when I right click on any movie file that is set to view as a thumbnail, when the windows screen appears during start up, when windows desktop first comes up during start up, and also when I bring up the Nvidia control panel or display settings. This isn't the end of the world but I'd like to eliminate if possible. Does anyone think it might be related to drivers loaded for the Sis onboard graphics? I noticed there are Sis651 drivers loaded on the add and remove screen but I'm concerned they might also run the AGP port that the Nvidia driver is plugged into or perhaps control more than just on board graphics. If anyone thinks I could safely remove, please let me know. Also, any other ideas would be appreciated.

Check to ensure that Windows 10 did not update itself before this happened. You may be able to resolve the issue by using  Windows System Restore.  Choose a restore checkpoint dated before this began.  Windows System Restore is completely reversible and will not delete your data.

After doing a clean install of Windows 7 64-bit because of a computer crash I had that involved the "display drivers have recovered" error or whatever I have re-installed all my drivers except video ones.

I have an m15x alienware laptop that originally had Vista 32-bit and I upgraded to 7 64-bit so I can't use my support disc to install the video drivers.

Then whenever I try downloading the drivers off nvidia or any other site I can't get windows to start up and have to restore because it either freezes at the Windows Starting Up screen or I get the BSOD.

My graphics card isn't showing up in device manager so I can't even search for updates.
Everything else is working perfectly except the graphic stuff and with a gaming laptop that I also use for design work it doesnt mean much to me unless I can fix what is wrong with it.
Help will be very appreciated.

I got a new GPU from amazon for about 30$
So I got a ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 2GB PCIe x16 2.0
Put it in my computer and i immediately had problems
First problem
Computer wouldn't turn on.
Kept cycling on and off repeatedly... so I turned my computer off by unplugging it.
And this time I unplugged the hard drive to see if my computer would boot without it.

worked but i noticed the bios got completely reset. so i had to manually plug the hard drive back in while the computer was on and change the bios settings to enable hard drive controller1 and some other settings like virtualization and speedstep (now it boots up fine without cycling on and off or needing the hard drive unplugged? I guess the capacitors needed to be charged for the first time and they were never primed or tested?)

A restart and windows won't boot past windows startup logo (Forgot to disable integrated graphics driver)
so i boot into safe mode and uninstall it. let it install VGA drivers
Now ive got the driver installed from the nvidia website (without the 3D vision or HDMI audio drivers and other things i wont be using)

i installed PhysX though
but now I get random display driver crashes IF DWM/AERO is turned on (i made a seperate partition and never had any crashes on a windows XP 64-install

It crashes and successfully recovers.. Sometimes its when opening a game. right clicking my desktop to bring up context menu. or opening a new tab. pausing a youtube video. Playing a really long youtube video.

I have a Lenovo z500 ideapad laptop which has a Nivdia GT 635M graphics card and an Intel (R) HD graphics 4000. Currently running Windows 10   It had recently come to my attentoin that i was getting a significantly lower FPS when gaming. upon further investigation, i realised that the games were all running using the Intel graphics and not the Nvidia. I then realised that i was unable to open the Nvidia control panel.I immediatley tried to find some solutions and as i had not updated the drivers in some time, i went to the Nvidia website to try and download the latest driver for my graphics card after i uninstalled the previous versions using DDU. and of course, the installation failed in the first step, displaying an error message saying ''The graphics driver could not find compatible hadware''. I also tried to install older versions of the driver (compatible with windows 10) but it still displays the same error message. Geforce Experience did not work and reinstallation of it failed.    'Display adapters' in device manager only shows the Intel (R) HD graphics 4000 and does not show any signs of the nvidia graphics card. i have also read in other forums that people have found their drivers under 'other devices' but this does not appear for me in device manager.

I have a nVidia GeForce MX 4000 (I know, its cheap). This is'nt really a problem,more of an annoyance, but here it goes.. Using the Nvidia card, the 3d graphics in games, etc... are much faster. But when doing basic tasks, such as email, web surfing...stuff like that, the 2d graphics are much slower than when using the Integrated Graphics (ATI Radeon Xpress 200).
any help appreciated..

hi there,
i bought a new laptop dell xps 15 sandy bridge with i5 2410m processor, 6gb ddr3 ram and 2gb nvidia geforce gt 540m graphics card.
All my drivers r uptodate and it is playing games like mafia 2, medal of honor 2010 , nfs hot pursuit 2010 at everything set to high (nearly everything) but this game JUST CAUSE 2 just does`nt starts on my HIGH PERFORMANCE (nvidia geforce gt 540m) mode.
It only runs on the intel 3000 graphics. In the benchmark mode on the first two tests i get avg frame rate 28.8 and 44.4 fps.
i think i can play on nvidia with better graphics performance n more fps.

When i start the game with my gt 540m : the game starts just as the screen comes(first screen of the game) where all the logos come n all that stuff the game gets minimized automatically and then comes up again , this keeps happining and it gets a bit of a trouble to even end it from the task manager.
Any idea what the hell is happinig??And how do i solve it?
I posted a similar thread on the same problem on eidos forums but till now only 51 views n not a single comment..please help.

I think that it is Win 7 cause if i install it in my old desktop it works like a dream and it is running Win XP SP3, and there is no problems at all and I just completed a duel boot with a second hard drive on above system and running xp on it as well and it works fine with it. Any ideas how to make it work? If need more info just post

I assume you are using the Windows 7 driver and not the XP driver on it,

NVIDIA DRIVERS 280.26 WHQL

might be better to go with the one previous as I haven't been seeing much in the way of good reports on the latest,

NVIDIA DRIVERS 275.33 WHQL

Also is this an untouched windows disk, or has it been modified in some way?

So not able to do much changes. Please suggest if there is a way to fix this.

I am running Windows XP Home Edition on an Advent 3207 machine with a Philips 107E monitor on a Nvidia GeForce 2 MX/MX400.
Problems: mouse will freeze on screen, screen will go black, screen will go black and then switch off, computer will not start at all, computer will start and get to desktop and then switch off, sometimes computer will beep three times and then not come on at all.
After the computer crashes Windows tells me it has recovered from a serious error. I send the error report and then Mircosoft tells me it cannot help with the problem because it is to do with Nvidia Graphics Card. I have been to the Nvida website and I have the latest driver installed: 56.72 WIN. The website offers no help to individual users. There are older updates on this website but I have no idea if any of these are needed. I have done things like change screen resolution etc. I don't know if this is a hardware or software problem. Sometimes it can take me ten attempts to get the machine completely on.
Any help anyone can give me will be most gratefully received. I don't know if I have provided enough information here but if anyone can help and you need more details I will do my best to provide them.
Many thanks in anticipation of help.

I just installed a NVIDIA graphics card, and I can't play vidoes with it as when I try the computer slows way down and I have to ctrl-alt-delete to close the program playing the video.

From researching on the internet it seems it is a common problem, and one way of getting around it is to disable the 3d acceleration. Does anyone know how to do this? I tried the method that NVIDIA suggest, but to be honest I don't understand it.
"To enable or disable 3D hardware acceleration

From the NVIDIA Control Panel Select a Category... home page, select 3D Settings

Click the View menu and then select Advanced

Manage 3D Settings to open the associated page.

The options on this “advanced” page enable you to change all the image and rendering settings of your 3D applications that utilize Direct3D and OpenGL technology.

Click the Global Settings tab.

Under Settings, click the setting corresponding to the Hardware acceleration feature and select one of these options:

Single-display performance mode: If you have only one active display, this is the default setting. You can also specify this setting if you have problems with the multi-display modes.

Note: This mode is faster than either of the multi-display modes described below.

Compatibility performance mode is available if you have two or more active displays when running in nView Dualview display mode or if you are using different classes of NVIDIA GPU-based graphics cards.

When this mode is in effect, OpenG... Read more

A:how to get a compatable Nvidia graphics card

xaim9x I see you're running Win10. Did the PC come preinstalled with Win10? Or, did you upgrade it from a prior OS to Win10?Also, only a very limited subset of HP laptops actually allow the replacement of processor, audio, video or WiFi "modules" and, as far as I can tell, yours is not one of these models.This means there is really no way to upgrade the video, WiFi, or processor on your laptop. You're stuck with what came with the PC.

Hello, I've just recently purchased an nvidia geforce gtx 260 oc maxcore 55, trying to upgrade from a geforce gt 240.. When I installed my gtx260 into my system and booted into windows, the card was not detected, and I had to plug a separate monitor into my on board plug, because I wasn't getting any signal through through from my new card. I had also purchased a 780w psu to ensure I had enough power for it. I also tried to disable to on board graphics and installed the drivers for the new card before I installed it into my system, so when nothing worked for me I traded the card in for another gtx260, but had all of the same problems...

I'm about to try booting in safe mode and disabling the on board graphics again and reinstall all the drivers and try again...

Also forgot to mention that the card powers up, the fans are running, but it's just not being detected. I did clean the pci-e slot with some cleaning alchohol and a cotton swab, which didn't help at all, I thought maybe I did a no no by trying to clean it like that and so I put my gt 240 back in, but it worked just fine.

any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, So my Previous Card was a XFX GEFORCE 6800XT 256MB DDR3, This card completely fried so i requested a new one (under lifetime warranty) From XFX.

They said it was defective so they sent me a new card, they sent me this time an ATI card XFX HD 4650 600M 1GB DDR2.

So this is where my problem starts, i went ahead and plugged in the Graphics Card and Everything was working perfectly fine until i went ahead and tried installing the drivers, so i did this super late and forgot to uninstall all of the NVIDIA drivers. So i installed the ATI drivers and to no Avail restarted and Nothing happened. So finally a couple of minutes later i used Driver Sweeper to Remove most of the drivers from both NVIDIA and ATI. but there is one ATI driver that will not let me uninstall it no matter what i do. ALso, I went into the Device Manager and saw that under Display Properties there was "Logmein-Display Adaptor) So i went ahead and Uninstalled it and ofcourse i shouldnt have done that because now i have no Display Drivers showing and...My Computer isnt Detecting my ATI card at all.

Help please
