From "Extreme" Graphics 3D to Radeon 9250 PCI

Q: From "Extreme" Graphics 3D to Radeon 9250 PCI

So hey everyone, I'm kind of a complete noob, but I need some help. I recently (like 30 min. ago) bought a Radeon 9250 PCI vid card. I was desperate for some kind of upgrade, and this looked pretty good and fit requirements as far as I could tell. Anyways I was trying to replace my relatively crappy "Extreme" graphics 3D crap that came integrated with my PC. So I followed all the instructions throughout the box and thought I would finally be able to see Master Chief in all his iradescent green glory, when I hit a roadblock. Nothing had changed. It was still running the same way. I poked around in the device manager and found the secion where my graphics stuff was. It listed my Extreme Graphics 3D, my Radeon, and Radeon (secondary). All of them were enabled. So I thought "hey, I'll just disable the Extreme and all my dreams will come true!" So I did, and it told me to restart. Once it was booted back up again, everything was really big, really pixely, and there were very few colors displaying. I tried changing the settings in Properties, but that changed nothing. Eventually I just enabled my old crap and things went back to normal. Please help me! Thanks

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.

Hello and welcome to techspot.
Do you mean Intel Extreme Graphics?
generally we know what are the steps, like:
1. Uninstall and the drivers in device manager, DISABLE it then
2. Turn off
3. Insert the GPU card
4. Disable the IGP (Ext Graphics) in BIOS one more time
5. Install the ATI / nVidia software and device drivers (i.e catalyst)
6. restart

i know you have do the abovelisted method, but i didn't see above that you have install the ati drivers AFTER disabling EG.

Big pixel and few colors probably 640x480 (default) and 256 colours, and it's the default your gpu could produce w/o a proper driver. for example, in a safemode (which the driver are turned off), my MR9700 also use 640x480 with 256 colours as the drivers are OFF.

so, i think you might consider taking a REINSTALLATION one more time and if the problem persists, please write your COMPLETE system specs so that it will help other TSmembers to help you

Good luck

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and I'm seeking help to setup dual monitors with my new ATI RADEON 9250 from NewEgg. I have an AOPEN motherboard with an onboard graphics card (Intelr Extreme Graphics Driver I came upon this thread and I saw he had trouble installing his ATI card. I read that, and I went to Device Manager and I disabled the Intel controller. Then I shut off my computer and installed my ATI card without any problems. I booted up the computer and installed the drivers successfully. But I had one problem - dual monitors. I wanted to set up one monitor hooked up to my onboard intel card and one monitor to my ATI card. When I clicked properties on my desktop > settings, under the display I saw *screenshot 1* (attachment) I was hoping to see Intel and ATI but instead I saw 2 ATI. Now I know that on the ATI card theres a secondary plug for a second monitor but you need an adapter to it. The adapter would be my second way out, the first way out is to set up the second monitor to the Intel onboard card. When I went to device manager, I only saw 2 ATIs, the Intel disappeared. I tried installing drivers again but it gave me an error.. *screenshot 2* shows what I just said.

Which is the better card, the "Sapphire Radeon 9800 Atlantis Pro 128MB" or the "PNY GeForce 6600GT 128MB"? I'm talking about the AGP versions. The 6600GT is about £10 more here in the UK. I had a faulty Radeon 9600XT so I'm looking for a new card. I will spend around £150 ($260). These 2 cards have caught my eye and I don't know which to choose. What would you get?

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

Hey everyone i need some help to install the radeon 9250 card. I have put the card in the correct slot and tried installing the software to go with it but it is not working. All i get is a blank screen when i connect to new card. I have a intel extreme graphics card already installed but i am not sure of how to uninstall the software for it. The intel card is with the main board in the back and its not a removable one. How can i remove this card software and driver and make the radeon the main graphics card. Also is there anything i have to do to install the radeon other than putting the card in and installing the software?

Ok i've bought the relativly old but reasonable graphics card, which will play sims 2. (If the card is compatible :S) I didn't really think at the time I needed to know much more than weather it was an AGP-PCI-PCI-E card. So I went ahead and bought and AGP card. I then found out that you needed to know if your slot was 4x or 8x, mine is 4x. The card specs say AGP 8x/4x which I guess means it will work on either. I then found out I needed to know if my power supply would be good enough it 250W so not high, but maybe as its an old card it would be ok? I then found out that I have 34bit AGP whatever that means :S, and the card said it was 64bit? Will that work? I have no idea thats why I signed up to these forums in search of help. I now know however that when buying hardware look up everything first :S. I have 510mb RAM and a 2.2ghz processor intel. I have a optiplex GX270 dell computer with an intel 82865G graphics card (onboard). I need to know if the radeon will work with my computer or not because of things like the power supply the bit and the 4x/8x thing. So I would really like advice please on wether this card will or will not work well on my computer. Thankyou sorry for being such a jerk!


A:Urgent Graphics Card Radeon 9250 Advice

Everything should be okay except for the 250W PSU.

As you've determined, it's fine to have an AGP x4 slot because your video card can run at AGP x4/x8.

I'm pretty sure the part you read about the Radeon 9250 being "64-bit" is just the memory interface. The Radeon 9250 has 128MB of memory and a 64-bit memory interface. Those are just the specs of the card, and does not present a problem in terms of compatibility.

The Radeon 9250 states that it requires "250 Watt power supply or greater recommended".
It seems that your current unit is barely cutting it, and I would recommend you upgrade to a more modern PSU just to be safe.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:

Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:

I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

I cannot seem to access the bios at all with windows 8.1 and my gtx 780 ti. When I connect the hdmi to my gtx 670, I can see the bios screen and can change the config but with the hdmi in my 780 ti I get a black screen until the dual boot windows selection. I've disable fast boot and have no idea what else to do.

A:No "uefi firmware settings" option on asrock z77 extreme 4

My guess is its defaulted back to another output on that card. I have three monitors on my GT 640. My BIOS splash screen and the Windows splash screen display on one monitor (DVI), and the Windows logon screen etc display on my main monitor (HDMI). It does the same thing whether I set Windows to single monitor or extend. I haven't tried it with just the HDMI monitor plugged in by itself though. Normally they should all go to the one monitor that's plugged in. If I get a chance latter on I'll unplug my two DVI monitors and see what happens. There is no guaranty that it will do what yours is doing but it will be interesting to see what happens just for future reference for me.

This is my system

Dell Dimension 3000
Intel pentium 4
2.8 GHZ 512 RAM
windows XP (sp2)
Intel extreme graphics 2 onboard video

The video card im trying to install is a
Radeon X800 PCI series

When I try to disable the video card it seems to only reset my graphics settings to 8 bit and 800 x 600 resolution, I've looked at other posts here about the Intel extreme graphics 2 and I know that it will consistently try to reinstall its driver if uninstalled. My ATI Catalyst software will not install itself for some reason. I put in the disc and it goes through the installation process, aburptly stops but it doesn't install any ATI things onto the computer, when I look in my control panel afterwards there are no ATI things in there whatsoever.

I know this video card works and everything cause it was working in my other dimension 3000 even before I disabled the onboard video on that computer it allowed the ATI software to be on the computer. I tried getting the latest drivers from ATI but when trying to install them it pops up a message saying
"Setup was unable to find components that can be installed under your current hardware or software configurations. Please make sure you have the right required hardware or software"
what does that mean? Im not sure what hardware or software I may be missing...

any idea as to what I should do? Thanks in advance!

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I have tried every google search string that I can think of, and found... Read more

Hi my name is James

I am running a Dell dimension 2400 with 256mb ram, celeron processer 2.4 ghz and Intel extreme graphics, and 40 gb hdd and the rest.

I just brought a 256 mb PCI card made by powercolor, built with radeon 9200 technology. Not pci express just straight PCI

Followed the instructions, pluged card in, turned on computer,go into the device manager and i get a yellow
"!" mark with the code 12 error against my card.

Uninstalled onboard intel extreme graphics controller, its model thing is ...
Intel® 82845G Graphics Controller it has 64mb of video ddr ram
Um well as soon as i uninstalled it and rebooted, windows would automactically recongise it again and then yeah. it would become default.
So i disabled it and now its outta use. yay =)
I am currently running off the default windows vgasave graphics thing and i still have the error code 12 on my radeon.

I have installed catallyst, downloaded specific drivers from the powercolor site, installed those and i get either

Well i am using the plain Radeon 9200 series driver ^
And have tried both with no luck.

I read somewhere that i should not use the microsoft drivers

Then i saw that I should try adjusting the agp apeture in the bios setup.

Did some research on how to tell whether or not a laptop's gpu can be replaced, and still curious whether or not the inspiron 15 5000s that include the "discrete" (as in separate from the motherboard) R7 m445 would be able to have it's video card replaced. The manual for the laptop is the same across the cheaper models, which rely entirely on the integrated gpu,  and more expensive models that don't, and it doesn't include any information on it's gpu(s).
I researched more information on the Radeon m445 to find no existing non-integrated version of the gpu which would mean it couldn't possibly be discrete unless it is custom to that laptop or something but the specs on the dell page for the laptop say that the Radeon card is discrete: www.dell.com/.../hmc-video-card-inspiron-lt
So could the laptop have two on-board/integrated gpus with a motherboard that supports it, a discrete gpu that is replaceable but never mentioned to be, or is the discrete gpu nefariously soldered to a pci-e (or whichever) slot in the computer in order to make sure it is impossible to upgrade?  
I will open it up sometime and update this post if no one can give a definite answer.

Okay guys, I'm at my wits end.

In the device manager, there are two entries for the video card, one being called secondary. The primary one has a code 12.

When I load up Windows, and the ATI control panel goes to load, it gives me an error saying that the driver is either not installed or not installed correctly and then proceeds to close.

I have disabled the onboard video in safe mode, uninstalled the onboard video drivers, as well as uninstalled and reinstalled the ATI drivers about a million different times in a million different ways.

According to e-machines tech support, you can't disable onboard video in the BIOS.

ATI tech support told me that I needed to upgrade my BIOS (and that this problem was common on e-machines) but then e-machines proceeded to tell me that there was not a BIOS update available for my machine.

So one big resounding WTF from me.

As for my specs, I am not entirely sure how to give them to you, but here is a link to my particular model on e-machines website.

I recently upped the RAM to 768MB.

At this point I am just wondering if I ought to save up my money for a better machine.

Being as most people who write threads about their problems tend to leave out information which could be useful for those who are trying to help out, I'll try to write a post that includes what you need and then some instead of too little..

Hardware Specs

ASUS CUV 4X-E, Celeron/PIII, ATX (Motherboard)
Intel Pentium III 1 GHz Coppermine (CPU)
Radeon 9600SE (Graphics Card) - Not sure of the "mark" of this one..PowerColor or ASUS

Background Story
Well, about 3 months ago, I exchanged my old and outdated GeForce 2 GTS Graphics Card with the new and better (I thought) Radeon. Being the CS-gamer I was back then, I did this in hope of increasing my FPS-count (not a lot, just a little), but was fairly disappointed when I experienced an all-time record low FPS of 5-10 (no matter what was going on).. Also, being lazy, I decided to take this as a chance to lay off the CS-scene for some time, perhaps focusing on some other aspects of gaming and general usage of the computer.. It was just now, today, that I got the craving for fragging again?

After doing some reading, I realized that I was not the only one with problems regarding Counter-Strike 1.6, ATI and FPS. After some more reading, I decided to downgrade to Catalyst 3.6. Since I'm not the most experienced person when it comes to messing around with drivers, hardware-settings, software-this and that, I read around some more and went with the information given in this thread. I followed the advice writ... Read more

One hint: Check whether IT IS Radeon MOBILITY!

I just met the same problem and tried many ways and can not solve it.
Later when I happened to check the product specification from its vendor page, I found out that it is a Mobility Radeon display card.
There are two ways to get mobility radeon to work on PC:
1. download official mobility radeon driver, eg, 4.12
2. get the latest ati catalyst, and use a very cute little tool to make it work for mobility radeon. The tool's name is ati dhmod. you can search google for download or contact [email protected]

Friends - On my laptop running 8.1 I need to remedy the often-seen "Display Driver Stopped Responding" display crash. On other systems equipped with AMD GPU components I could use the CCC Presets [Profiles] + Overdrive to workaround the strict Windows timing parameters, increasing the idle clock and core clock targets for the Preset, then invoking it [which requires AMD Overdrive]. On this notebook, no such option is accessible. There is a lot of chatter on the web about this and it is not new to 8.

Anyone know for SURE what a cure is? What I'm gathering is that there should be a Registry entry for a key that deals with Overdrive, but it is missing on the Registry I can see.

Otherwise, I don't know of a certain fix. Microsoft/TechNet board suggests a Registry hack to alter the base windows timing parameters but in the past I have found that not a good solution. It may cut down from 20 errors a week to four or five, but it does not have the surety that the CCC/Overdrive fix is - which targets only the GPU in use

I got a new AMD Radeon HD 6850 video card just a few days ago and installed it fine. I installed the software from its disc, updated it, and it works great.

However, I've found that about once a day, late at night, after the comp has been on for many hours, the screen will freeze for several seconds, monitor blank, then return just fine, with the message on the taskbar "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered"

Nothing else happens, nothing bad happens, this never occurs while I have games or videos or other memory-intensive programs open.

I have Windows 7 Premium edition 64-bit, an AMD Athlon II X4 620 Processor with 2.60 GHz. My power supply unit is a Corsair, 620W. The power unit and motherboard are less than 3 years old (I got them in October 2009) and I have two harddrives. Just defragmented them last week or so.

How do I narrow down what the issue is? Is it Windows 7 idle power saving thing? Is it innocuous if it is?

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned above. The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere.

Ok so I opened up the .msstyles file (using Restorator) located in the theme folder of this VS. I went into the images directory and located what seems to be the images used for the buttons. Intuitively, it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones (perhaps from another visual style) and it should change them. However, would this actually work? Could the theme get messed up in some other way (like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller)? I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy.

But I did run into another problem. For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory. Where else would they be?

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

Hi all,

So I'm kind of stuck.. I currently have the problem where I am in an endless cycle of "loading files" -> "Windows Boot Manager" (see: How To Boot Into Safe Mode On Windows 8 (The Easy Way)).
I have tried to load all of the options -- and none successfully load.
I also end up at a OneKey Recovery as well.. unfortunately, the laptop does not have initial backup or user backup images.
I have a Windows 8 CD for repairing purposes.. however, I cannot load the BIOS/UEFI to change the boot order to load the optical drives first. I have also tried to remove the CMOS battery to fix it.. did not work. .
Also - Windows Boot Manager:
Windows Setup [EMS Enabled] -- does not load properly (leads to OneKey Recovery) Safe Mode (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Networking (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Command Prompt (doesn't load - tries to boot and load all files onto partition that is too small.. can't change partition?)
Enable Boot Logging Enable Low-Resolution Video Debugging MOde Disable automatic restart on system failure Disable Driver Signature Enforcement Display Early Launch Anti-Malware Driver
Start Windows Normally
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Hi all, I beleive this is an error with all Acer 7535G laptops, and was wondering if there is a fix. This is the error I get; http://i48.tinypic.com/9thbmq.jpg "This device cannot start (Code 10)".

I uninstalled and reinstalled, which didn't work. I tried a fix which worked for 4550 models, which was to uninstall, go into Safe Mode and delete the drivers, then reboot and they'll automatically re-install, which they did, but the error was still there.

Is there an fix out there whatsoever? I understand the 3200 Series is supposed to work without the laptop being plugged in, and when it is plugged in, it should switch to the 4500 Series.

Btw, I'm running 64Bit W7 Ultimate.

I'm having a problem with my display, and I believe it has to do with the graphics card, it's drivers, the monitor and refresh rate.

Here's the story. Back when I got this graphics card (2 or slightly more years ago?), a few months after having it with no problems it started to have a weird wiggling, vertical effect on the screen. Back then, this only happened with some games, and it rarely extended onto the desktop. Usually, messing with the graphics settings stopped it, but it would return. Messing with the Refresh Rate eventually tamed the wiggling but it would never miraculously fix itself. Until some months ago from today, I had decided to update my drivers and the wiggling disappeared permenently.

2 days ago, I had the bright idea to format my computer, since it was getting too bloated with stuff. Following the setting up and driver install, I decided to do a benchmark with DOTA 2. To my surprise, the wiggling started again, and now, I have no idea what to do.

The wiggling pattern is funny, though. It goes like this: I start the game, 3 minutes later it starts wiggling, and it slow... Read more

Hi, I'm new to these forums and I have a problem booting up my computer with my new graphics card. My monitor reads no signal when connected to the card. When plugged into the back of the pc, it just stays black. When I take the card out and start up my computer everything works fine.

I have a ATI Radeon 9600 SE 128 mb card (the low profile type) AGP. I'm running windows xp with service pack 2 and my PC has a pentium 4 w/512 mb of ram. The monitoir is a flat panel lcd with a vga connector. I haven't been able to get a picture with the card in place, so I haven't even got to installing the drivers yet or anything. My computer came with an integrated intel graphics controller, and this is the first graphics card I have tried installing. Any ideas why my computer is doing this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I know this may sound silly, but I've done it a few times myself, have you checked to make sure you've plugged your monitor into the correct video card? If you have, try plugging into the built in video card and making sure the 2nd video card is enabled. RIght click desktop, properties, settings, advanced and have a look through there.
