I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi, yes, my motherboard has ATI on board video and it's still on. I have a Nvidia geforce 550 ti video card that i much prefer to run my games.

I'm having a video confusion problem in my games where i can't see some of the video. I was told by the maker of the MOD for the specific game that i need to disable the ATI on board video so there wont be any more conflicts with my Nvidia video card.

How do i disable the on board video on my motherboard. the motherboard is the following:

Hi,

I put it in today, and the screen didn't even start, probobly because of an irq conflict. What's the correct way to do this?

It can only be one of the two enabled at a time. For most systems, as soon as you put the pci-card in the slot, it disables the on board video.

Hi all,
I have a dell here with on board video that has failed (someone literally pulled the connector off of the motherboard). The system should be fine otherwise, therefore I was wondering if I could put in a old style PCI video card into one of the PCI slots (it does not have a video slot) and have it work. Or would the onboard video cause conflicts? I know that with some BIOS's you can turn off the onboard video, and this is usually a option if the motherboard has a video slot available (agp, PCI Express). Of course this motherboard does not and is a dell cheapo.

I am thinking it will probably work but thought I would ask before getting a card for it.

A:Can a dell use a pci video card if it has on board video?

Will a PCI video card work? Possibly!

Attached is a pic of a board where the Sub-D connector was pulled from the board, and when it was pulled it shorted out the board, and a PCI card would not work.

A:Specs on on-board video card

What exactly do you wish you know about it?

Here's the specs on the chipset:
http://www.sis.com/products/sis661fx.htm
http://www.sis.com/products/sis661fx_features.htm
http://www.sis.com/products/sis661fx_benefits.htm

And since its based on the SiS315: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/sis315.html

SIS graphics are not even close to being in the same league as ATI and NVidia dedicated video cards. Even the older Radeon 8500/9xxxx or Geforce 3/4/FX series cards will outperform it in almost every game and without using 64MB of your system memory and at better quality.

Here's some benchmarks: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/chipsets/display/int-chipsets-roundup.html

Hey im thinking of upgrading my pc so i can just hook it up hdmi to my tv. Ive looked around and my mobo only supports pci cards, which when i checked the hdmi out cards were a bit pricey. It also has one agp 4x slot but cant find a decent card in that department.

Should i get a new MOBO instead with an integrated hdmi out because another benefit of that would be a better CPU and ram support (mine currently says max memory is 1 gig on crucial, but i looked up the serial and says it supports 2) I do want a faster and stronger rig but dont know if all my components would matche up with a new board.

What would i need to look for in terms of choosing either of these options. My case apparently supports uATX (micro).

A:Upgrade board or new video card?

Depends on your cash situation. Sounds like your PC is a bit old so a refresh would be in order. Particularly if you have a nice TV, you are probably going to want to use the PC for gaming/media.

I need a litte bit of info here. I had a problem where I was getting horizontal red and green lines on my screen at times. I changed monitors and got the same problem. I sent my system in for repair. I was told that if a mother board had on video card that the motherboard its self would need to be replaced. The repair tech did a ReImage does that fix the issue? I am very concerned here. It has been a month messing with people to get it fixed. Was sent to Best Buy and they did nothing even though it was under warranty. Finally sent it directly to Gateway, and they ReImaged it. Just wondering if someone knows if this possible or did they just say they did something? Please respond. Thank you.

I am on my old computer, I just formatted and loaded windows 98 back onto it but this time the video card only displays 16 colors and has a huge resolution that can't be reduced. I believe it has the latest drivers too, could be wrong.
 

A:on board video card has failed me

If you just put 98 in and haven't loaded the drivers for your motherboard, that is the problem. If you have the disks for the MB, install the drivers using it. If you don't you're going to have to locate the drivers for the MB. First try the PCs manufacturer's web site. If the PC is not a real antique, they should have everything you need.

Looking for information on a graphics problem
I have an MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GB video card.
It has given problems in my computer since the computer was new. BSOD’s, artifacts, glitches etc. The card was returned three times, once by itself and twice in the entire computer.
The computers onboard video works perfectly but of course will not run Witcher II or Crysis II.
A temporary replacement video card (Radeon 5450) works perfectly but of course will not run the games.
I assumed a bad video card or possibly a conflict with the NVIDIA card and the motherboard (I’m grabbing at straws). The MB onboard video is AMI.
This morning I removed the video card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275) from my wife’s computer and put in the MSI N460GTX Cyclone card. It is working perfectly in her computer.
I put the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 in my computer and it works perfectly in my computer.
So now, the N460 apparently is good, the MB must not have a problem with an NVIDIA card. What could be causing the problem with that one card in my computer?
My PSU is much more than adequate for the 460 card. I have tried two different video drivers including the latest (280.26) and still the problems exist.
My system specs are:
AMD Phenom II 1055T
8GB Corsair XMS
Mother Board BIOSTAR TA890GXE
Windows 7 HP 64bit
 

A:Video Card-Mother Board??

It might be worth checking on the Biostar website to see if there are any BIOS updates or anything, this may be a known problem.

I'm trying to troubleshoot this laptop for somebody, I don't have a lot of experience with laptops. I'm getting a lot of video lag when streaming movies on sites like Netflix. It runs fine at first but then it starts to bog down. The computer runs fine until I try and use the video card more then a tiny bit. This only happens when I'm streaming videos or trying to play any sort of game. I ran a memtest and a hardware benchmark and everything seems to check out. Is it possible that the on-board memory for the GPU has went bad? That's the only thing I could think of, how can I test it? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

It's an Asus u50f if that helps.

Edit: Before I get any replies I should note that I've done all the basic things I know how to do. I know the on-board video card is rubbish and can't be expected to play any high end games, I'm not trying to play Skyrim or anything. I can't even stream Netflix videos properly or anything that is even remotely a little bit stressful on the video card. Also the drivers are completely up to date. I should also let you know that the motherboard was recently replaced by Best Buy (where she bought the laptop). I'm not exactly sure what happened with it, I'm guessing it just burned up or something.

So recently I got a new monitor assuming that something is wrong with my old one. But the same problem occurs, my monitor still goes blank! Well, ever since I switched my video card (same time I got my old monitor) I was experiencing that problem. People at the store are no help at all since they are so clueless!

So I came to this conclusion, its either my video card that's experiencing problems or my mother board is getting out dated or whatsoever. (I got it back in 2003 and its Pentium 4 hyper-threading) My current mother board doesn't have a monitor slot on the pentium, only has a slot where the video card is. I don't think that could be a problem because when I had my old video card, I never experienced any problems. Please help.

no.

Memory on the video card is for the GPU (graphics chip) to store the image data. It has nothing to do with your computer ram. Note: many of todays video cards have gDDR5.... how many DDR5 motherboards are out there? None.

I was wondering
a power supply went out yesterday and at the same time took the video card with it. the video card was built in on the motherboard. the powersupply that went bad had an extra wire with a plastic end that had two yellow wires and two black wires in it an plugged in the motherboard I assume for the built in video card.

got a new powersupply and put it in and thats when I found out the video card was also bad. so I got a pci video card and popped it in and boom everything was fine.

well it must have been a defective power supply cause it went out today. Same thing the computer would not even come on. I have a powersupply tester and tested it and yes it was bad again.

Had an old powersupply in an old computer and tested it and it worked so I hooked it up in the computer that the powersupply had gone bad in. the only thing is is that it does not have the extra wire that hooks to the mother board (with the two yellow and two black wires) that I think is for the video.

My question is since we by passed the built in video card and put in a PCI Video card does that wire then have to be hooked up? the old power supply we found doesn't have that wire but when hooked up to the computer the power turns on BUT no video.

the first time the power supply went out it took out the video with it. we then put in the PCI video card.

I have been getting blue screens with the “drive irql not less or equal” messages and when I play games such as witcher and HOI 3 both crash to the desktop. Is it possible that the motherboard sound “card” is causing these crashes because there is a conflict between it and the video card or is it because I have a blank slot where my audigy used to be but the drivers are still installed? Any help appreciated

Hi, Am working with a PC with a new monitor and an ASUS P4S8X-X system board. When restarting, sometimes (over 50%) the monitor just doesn't make the connection, i.e. a black screen though you can hear the box do its thing. When this occurs, there is no display during any part of the boot process, not even a logo screen. You just keep restarting it and then it works OK. Haven't troubleshooted something like this before so I have a question. . . Would it be worth purchasing a new Video Card? I cannot produce any kind of a 'short' in the monitor port connection and have cleaned and reinstalled the video card. All seems to be in good working order. Have you heard of the on/off button doing this? Its a P4, 256 MB RAM, 60 GB HD. I clean installed Windows XP Pro from Windows 2000 Pro. It was having this problem for the past year or so. Any ideas would be very well recieved. Thanks

Hello,
I just got a Asus A8N-SLI mother board and a pny 7800gt video card. The card only works in the bottom pci express slot though, when i try to plug into the top the monitor light keeps blinking like nothings going through. Everything seems to work fine when in the bottom slot but i am worried about the heat. I have my sound card close to that so theres not much flow between like their would be in the top slot. (also the top slot is blue, bottom is black, if that makes a difference) I left the default set at single card mode on the motherboard. Also being in that slot is the card running at full capacity? 16x?
My other specs are:
1gb Corsair value select ram
Antec 450Watt SmartPower 2.0 PSU
AMD 64 3700

thanks
 

A:Video card wont work in top PCI Express slot on sli board

mmm... Check out the BIOS option for the SLI cause it could be that just one slot is enabled (the bottom on)...
about the heat issue... can you move the sound card to another slot?...

My HP Pavilion 502n has on-board video. The computer turns on but will not display anything on the monitor- it'll just put the monitor to sleep. I tried 2 monitors and it has the same affect on both. I tried both monitors on another computer and they both work fine on it, which makes me think that the on-board video unit has failed.
how can I disable on-board video using "device manager" when I can' t see the display? I'd like to replace it with a video card- do I just install a sound card anyway and hope that it'll work?

Thanks.

You don't replace a graphics with a sound card. They're two different animals. Sure, you can install a sound card but you'll only get sound out of it. You replace graphics with a graphics card.

A:on-board video card for "ultra" brand laptop

is there a model or serial number somewhere on the unit? be sure to carefully check all surfaces of the unit, including any areas that are accessed via removable panels. you may even be able to find the unit's FCC id, in which case you can get further information from the FCC website (they have a nice database that lists any device based on its FCC id).

what do you want to use this laptop for? usage possibilities depend largely on the RAM and video card, which are not strong selling points for most laptops.

First, my specs. P51 with Xeon processor, 64GB of ram, Win 10 Pro, NVIDIA Quadro M2200 Video, Intel HDGraphics P630 Video, Docking Station.  I have two external monitors via my docking station, one on the VGA other on the HDMI port. I also have two monitors via Sabrent USB to VGA devices. While I was out of town last week, Windows delivered an update to the Intel P630 graphics. Got home, put my P51 in the docking station. Bam, video driver keeps crashing, reverting to the basic driver and disabling all my external monitors.  I finally tracked it to the Intel P630 driver, I can uninstall it and reboot and it works fine for a while, but then after a reboot it crashes again.  I've tried reinstalling the NVIDIA driver from both their site and the Lenvo support site, no change. I looked for the P630 driver, but couldn't find it on the Lenovo site, at least as an independant download. It may be included in some other download. I did try getting the P630 from the Intel site, but what I downloaded said it wasn't compaitble with my machine.  Right now it has the same image on the internal monitor and the two monitors hooked to the docking station. Yes, the exact same image on three monitors, which shouldn't be possible under Windows. The two monitors coming in over USB seem to be OK and not have the "same desktop everywhere" issue.  I actually have two docking stations with external monitors, I have an office upstairs in my h...

I have had this problem for a long time.  Just now getting around to fixing it.  I have been using an external USB reader to read the SD card which works fine. When I put the SD card into the computers onboard opening the computer tells me that I must first format the card.  Its already formatted with data on it.  So I decline to format it.  MY COMPUTER recognizes it as in DRIVE F-so it is seeing it. I am open for any ideas as to whats wrong and how to fix the problem.  Thanks for your help.

Yet another problem needing a solution. I was given yet another PC assembled by my brother (part of the problem). I have everything working except for needing better video. The on-board video only gives me the options of 2 or 16 color @640 x 480 pixel . I obviously need better graphics capability for many of the programs and games we would be using. I have a PCI video card left from a former AGP upgrade on another system that I think should work. I need someone to walk me thru the procedures to deactivate the on board video and install and activate the PCI replacement. All I know about the mother board is what the owners manual tells me. I see no specific instructions on this particular procedure.

The MOBO is a Micro ATX Socket 370 1st Mainboard FR33 with a 733 mHz processor (Cyrix.... I think)....Award BIOS

I've looked all over in the BIOS for a enable/disable on board video...no luck

Any help would be appreciated

I think I have a problem with my on-board video but I'm not 100% sure. Last night while on my computer, my monitor would go black and the power light on the monitor would go from green to amber. This happened several times. The only thing I could do was to turn off the computer and turn it back on. It's an Emachine and I don't know if I could disable the on-board video. But that doesn't matter because I don't have any available slots open to install a video card anyway. What do you think the problem could be?
 

A:on-board video

It could be the graphics chipset is over-heating, but that would be unusual in a system that has it onboard, as those GPUs are pretty low powered. Unless you over-taxing it with a high-power game or similar at the time?

Its more likely that the connection between PC and monitor is dodgy. Check that the monitor lead is really securely fixed in place, that there are no bent pins either end of the connector lead, and also that the connector to the motherboard is also secure.

Has anyone trodden on the monitor data cable, or could it have got damaged in some other way?

Try installing the mobo's chipset drivers first then do the video/agp drivers.

Hi all, question please. I have a PIII 700mhz board with on-board video which I have established is not working. How is this fixed, do I have to replace the mainboard or buy a new PC altogether. Or is there a way to test it.
Thanks Andy.
