W530 black screen using descrete graphics

Q: W530 black screen using descrete graphics

During the installation of Windows 10 on my Thinkpad W530 my screen would just turn black. I was finally able to get Windows installed after going into BIOS and changing to intergrated graphics. If I go back to descrete graphics, I am able to boot up and log into Windows but my resolution is very small and after several seconds the screen will turn black. While the screen is black no buttons work, the computer is completly locked up and I am forced to cold shutdown. I've installed and reinstalled the proper video card drivers many times but with no luck. Is my GPU dead? I believe my W530 has the K1000m

Hi, Im running a GPU intensive software that performs significantly better in descrete graphis mode (switched trough BIOS). Since the only GPU active, is the M1200 im wondering if this has any inpact on the number of video outputs that can be utilized. ATM. I can only test with the HDMI out and that works fine, but soon ill find myself in a situaton where ill need to use all three outputs plus the laptop screen. Is it posible to run four displays (HDMI, Thunderbolt, DP and the laptop screen) using only the M1200 GPU?

Before I start this topic, I have tried everything in all related topic in this forum and elsewhere. It seems to me that this is something new, please dont re-direct me to those threads about W520 dup screen fix, etc. The major different of my problem is that when mini-display or VGA port is being used, NVIDIA control panel no longer can see both graphics cards, and only sees quadro K1000M which is making connection to the external source through those ports, see attached screen shot. At the same time, the Intel graphic control panel only sees the internal graphic card. It really looks like two of the control system decided to split my graphic system and refuse to talk to each other, which lead to no duplication of the content on both screens. Some addtional info, 1. I use USB display, ASUS 168B, which doesn't show on either control panel at all, so, no dup screen, but works as extention.2. I use MS wireless display adapter, the WiDi display shows under the intel graphic card, so, Yup, here is the dup screen I can have. Any ideas what is going on?  

A:W530 Graphics malfunction, win10, cant dup screen

To add more fun to the problem, the windows+P can force a duplication excution, but with the 2nd screen out of signal. Iooking into my Physx, see attached, it is mind twisting. It looks like the computer agrees there is a 2nd screen connected to the intel system, but consider it a phantom one, which means the signal is not coming to the physical VGA port. Any good ideas or suggestions?

I have tried uninstalling reinstalling downloading setup from 4 different places. I have updated my winxp in a futile attempt to get it working but still have problem.

I bought a Sapphire HD 7950 graphics card about 2 months ago. Everything worked fine until one day ago when I booted up my computer... everything booted up (Fans Lights & No system beeping) But I was only getting a black screen, with occasional small white flashes. I tried booting with multiple displays and multiple ports (nothing worked). I also tried changing my bios settings also with no luck. (the on-board graphics work fine when the graphics card is removed from the PC) My power supply is a 600W which is more than enough. Again Everything worked fine until that day. I doubt anything is damaged (I handle everything in my PC with extreme care). And yes all of the AMD drivers are installed.

Hi everyone, this is my first post and i hope its in the right place!

Last night i turned on my computer for the first time that day, and all seemed fine; windows logo came up with the little loading bar, but instead if loading the desktop, up came a black screen. Funny thing was that windows was working in the background! I read through people having the same problem in these forums, and it turns out its not an overly uncommon problem; graphics card issue. I booted in safe mode, and uninstalled the graphics card and drivers, and when i rebooted it was fine, albiet in low resolution. i downloaded and reinstalled the drivers from my providers site, and when i rebooted i had the same problem. So now i am sitting typing this (the text looks huge on this resolution) and have a simple question. Is the issue here that the graphics card is broken? I hope this isnt the case as it is an onboard card and will cost about $900 for a replacement. My specs are below (i'm a bit of a gumby when it comes to computers so go easy on me

So, I havent really understood this with two dispaly adapters. On my Thinkpad W530 I have the Intel HD Graphics 4000 and the Nvidia Quadro K2000M Does the computer use both of these? How do I choose which one to use? It looks like mine is using the Intel, because as I right click on the desktop and go to Screen Resolution -> Advanced Settings I only get the Intel Controlpanel as an option (Not the Nvida). When I right click the deskop and choose Nvidia Controlpanel I get the error message: "NVIDIA Display settings are not available - You are not currently using a display attached to an NVIDIA GPU" I am totally lost  The laptop works perfectly fine, but I would of course like to use the best display adapter, if itīs possible.

So long story short I replaced my first W530 with another about six months ago. I rarely use it on battery power, but the other day I neeeded it so I went to go turn off Optimus and force only integrated graphics because A) it uses less power: even with the nvidia not being utilized in optimus mode it seems to draw power in an idle state and B) Because the nvidia GPU is more or less powered it throttles the machine to 1.2ghz. For some reason, Windows 10 will not load past the logo. It just stops. I tried the installation disk for the fall creators edition and it was the same deal though I did get to the spinning balls before it quit. I tried Knoppix which is a live boot distro. It worked ok with Optimus but the only way to get acceleration and multiple monitors was to force the Quadro only via the BIOS and then it seemed to work just fine. I even played some windows games via wine on it which kind of blew me away frankly. I tried a Windows 7 install ISO and that loaded and got to the install screen using only the default VGA drivers.  If I try to force Windows 10 to use safe mode by itself, or with the low resolution option (vga drivers) it just freezes and refuses to boot. That leaves two options here at this point. Either I have a broken HD4000 on my i7-3740QM or the the newer BIOS that was released last fall broke something. On my old W530 it booted Windows 10 with the intel GPU just fine. Seeing as how optimus works and that it offloads most of the processing to... Read more

A:Black Screen.Graphics Card Failure?

Make sure you update the graphic card drivers from the venders site, if you dont know then i can show you where.

Next click the link on my sig and do everything there then reboot. If the problem still exists then go into the bios and set the display to onboard graphics, boot then shutdown the pc and remove the graphics card. Then boot up and see if the problem still happens. If you need help with the BIOS settings then just ask.

NOTE: if you dont have onboard graphics you'll need another graphics card which you can put in instead of the one your using

If after doing all the above its still not working correctly then download http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php and run it then take a screenshot so we can see all the values and post it here

so i have these questions. 1. should i return my geforce 8400 and buy a GeForce 6200 Video Card that will fit in my agp slot?

2. or can i use the 8400 that i have? and if so, how do i do it?
 

A:changing graphics cards = black screen

OK, you are missing a few steps when attempting to install your card.

1 With the old card still installed, uninstall the driver for the card.
2 Shutdown and pull out your old card
3 Install the new card in a pci slot; connect monitor. Note your bios may need to be set to use pci video. Read your manual.
4 Pw ON and see if you get a display on your monitor.

FWIW with that old of a card now installed, I would think the agp slot is a 1X or 2X. This will not work with a modern agp type card which needs 4/8X to work.

If the above procedure does not work, I would NOT be putting any money into such an old system. It is not cost effective.

Well I took apart my computer and put it back together about 3 times and after the third i turned it on and the screen was black straight away as soon as i pressed the ignition button. (the other times I turned it on it was fine).

I have determined that it is the graphics card because I plugged the monitor into the motherboard VGA port and it worked like normal. I have tried taking out the card and cleaning the port.

I went into Device Manager and under other devices it says: "VIDEO CONTROLLER (VGA COMPATIBLE)" but it has a exclaimation mark by it. And when i go into the properties of it it says: "THE DRIVERS FOR THIS DEVICE ARE NOT INSTALLED (CODE 28)". But i cannot install the drivers with the cd I have and i cannot use hardware update wizard.

My CD ussually identifies the card and the installs the drivers, but this has not happened and at the top where it says what the card is it says "NO SUITABLE DRIVERS".

Hello :) Today I bought a brand new Acer V3-772G laptop that runs Window 8 with a nvida gtx 760m graphics card built in.

Getting home I decided to use Just Cause 2's bench test to find out how the laptop would hold up. After completion and getting a rather low score I noticed it said the graphics card it was running was the integrated Intel(r) HD graphics 4600 card and not the nvidia.

So after some researching and trying out different ways with no results I right clicked on computer, clicked on manage, went to device manager then to display adapter, saw the intel card and the nvidia card so I disabled the intel card in hopes it would force the nvidia card to be used.

Once I did that all windows disappeared, the desktop was still there and I could still access the tile menu/start screen so I restarted hoping it would set everything back to normal and start using the nvidia card. Oh how wrong I was. Upon restart the acer title/logo pops up then disappears as usual but after that I only get black screen, nothing else.

Is there any way to fix this? To re enable the graphics card some how?
Thank you in advance!

A:Black screen after disabling graphics card Help!

If you could get to Safe Mode, you could re-enable the onboard graphics.

In some cases, if Windows 8 doesn't successfully start a few times in a row, it will display a screen with alternate boot options - among them an "Advanced Options" tab - which will include an option to start in Safe Mode. Try letting your laptop restart a few times. If it recognises a problem with the onboard graphics, it might produce the Advanced Startup Options menu.

If you don't see that menu appear, you can use a Windows 8 repair disc (USB, CD, or DVD) to boot your computer. It will produce a menu from which you can choose Advanced Startup Options & choose Safe Mode. The Wndows 8 repair disc is not your Windows 8 installation disk, nor is it a recovery disk (such as those provided by your manufacturer). The repair disc starts your computer into the Windows 8 Recovery Environment.

It only takes a minute or two to make the repair disc (literally). From a working Windows 8 PC, press the Windows & R keys at the same time. Then type recdisc. Choose create repair disc, & provide a blank CD, or blank DVD, or USB flash memory drive.

I have a ATI/AMD Graphics Card on my Dell Studio 1558, and the chip has become faulty (design fault from manufacturer). Now the screen display is black and does not come on.

Temporary workaround I am using
I plugged in my separate VGA monitor to the laptop and using it, I switched on my laptop, and after the Windows startup logo, the computer would crash and restart (and repeat).

So I managed to get into Safe Mode, and from there, under Device Manager, I roll-backed my ATI/AMD driver to Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. Then I restarted the Laptop normally (not Safe Mode), and the laptop DID NOT crash, it made it to the logon screen and I got in.

Problem:

So now, I have my VGA Monitor plugged in to the laptop and using it, I am able to boot up windows normally.

While the laptop is on, if I unplug the monitor, the Laptop Screen stays black, nothing happens. When I plug it back in, I get this error that says Microsoft Basic Display Adapter is not compatible with your display (I'm assuming it means my laptop screen since it's a Full HD resolution, whereas my VGA monitor is half that resolution.

What I need help with

Is there any other driver I can install apart from ATI/AMD which will allow my Laptop Screen to work? I want to bypass the ATI/AMD Graphics card completely as it's faulty and maybe somehow use Windows one just like the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter is currently doing?

UPDATE: I do not mind using a smaller resolution on my Laptop Screen. I can learn to live... Read more

A:ATI/AMD Graphics Card error, black screen

I don't think a different driver would help with the laptop's screen. It sounds like a hardware problem, especially if, as you say, the chip has gone bad. It looks like the problem exists somewhere between the video card and the laptop screen, but it still allows you to use an external monitor.

You could boot without the external monitor and shine a light on the laptop's screen to see if there is anything there. If there is, that rules out the graphics card. It would be the actual screen backlight that is at fault.

Is there any chance that this laptop is still under warranty?

Hey guys,

I thought I'd share my experiences for those who may have similar setups. I have a Sager NP8265 laptop, with AMD/Intel switchable graphics.
I did a clean install using an ISO I got from Mosharino's beautiful thread up there.

You MUST install the latest Intel graphics drivers, and then, DO NOT REBOOT, for you MUST ALSO install the latest ATI drivers (13.11 beta right now).
If you don't do both, you will get black screen of fun when you do reboot. BSOF. Not as fun as it sounds.

As far as upgrading rather than a clean install, if you upgrade, you will likely get the black screen anyways. So what you have to do, is reboot to safe mode after the upgrade completes (oh you'll know, cause all you can see if a black screen, with a mouse cursor), and remove both graphics devices (device manager, right click the graphics adapter, uninstall)

Then you can boot into Windows normally, albeit with sh*te graphics. Then do the installs as I outlined above.
After a couple of reboots, you should (..should..) have a functioning machine again, that doesn't even look like sh*te!.

Hopefully this helps someone who had the same issues I did!

I have a
Hp desktop
1gb memory
ATI radeon x200 intergrated graohics card
200gb hd
XP SP2
Pentium 4 3.06ghz

This is the problem

I got a used grapgics card- an ati x800xl 256mb. The I uninstalled my intergrated one through device manager. Turned off computer. Installed the new card to my PCI-E slot. Then connected the monitor cable to the new video card slot. Turn on computer and............nothing! Black sceen saying "No signal.

I researched this problem. Went to BIOS then switched cards or slots had a option like "PCI, PCI-E, AGP. Figuring that I installed it onto my PCI-E slot i switched it to that option. But still no start up.

I seems that the intergrated card never goes off. I uninstall it but its still there. Cause when I restart my computer its still enabled.
POWER SUPPLY is 300w of computer. Graphics card is recommended at 300w also


Question

How can I fix this problem so I can get the new card to work?

am I supposed to disable or uninstall the intergrated one? (I uninsatalled it first)

If I disable it and it still dosent work, the new card, can I reinable it cause I don't want to mess up the computer?

Thank you very much

Hey all,
having some graphics card problems and would appreciate any help.
I built two identical computers for my parents from spare parts and some new components just to give them something to use until they can buy something newer. Both work fine with the onboard graphics, but video play back performance is obviously low (very choppy). Trying to install an upgraded graphics card and does the same thing in both systems.

System specs:
Dell Optiplex GX260
Windows XP home, SP3
2.4GHz Pentium 4, 1GB ram
Onboard graphics is Intel 82845G

Graphics card I'm trying to install is a PNY VCG62256APG
This is a Nvidia Geforce 6200 card, ddr2 256 mb, 4/8x AGP interface
Should mention the card was new last winter and hasn't been installed in any other PC's.
When I install the card and boot up it shows the specs of the graphics card in the upper left corner. Goes through the normal bios and windows boot screens. Windows opens in a low res graphics mode, says found new hardware etc etc, loads nvidia driver from windows update and prompts a reboot. After the reboot it goes through the load screens again and shows the windows boot screen with the progress bar for about 15 seconds, then just goes black. Monitor says "no signal" and goes into stand by. If I restart in safe mode I get a signal back and can open windows but in low res of course. Tried updating driver with the newest one from nvidia's website and no go. Does the same thing. All other drivers on the... Read more

Hi guys, I've done a fair bit of looking into this but I can't get a definitive answer. I recently bought a Gigabyte GeForce 750 TI OC Edition to go with my computer, knowing it would fit in the case. But ever since I've tried to install it, it has been a nightmare. It fires up, fans whirring and all but all I get is the HP BIOS screen, no imput commands and 3 quick beeps then it goes to an entirely black screen with a blinking underscore in the top left hand corner. From what I've read around I have to enable Legacy mode in BIOS, but since my computer is running the HP 7.07 BIOS I can't find that it even remotely supports Legacy mode. Then I've read that some HP MoBo's cannot effectively run a different graphics card due to age/restrictions. It doesn't sound like a power issue as I've already upgraded the PSU with no issues. I'd just love an answer to what exactly is the issue because it's driving me nuts and I'm pretty much ready to sell the card at this point. IF I have infact bought a non-applicablegraphics card, could you recommend one that would ACTUALLY work? Thanks again.

Hey I'm not sure where to start but a while ago I bought a desktop and a monitor and they are

Desk Top:
Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AX1420-UR10P (PT.SG9P2.003) Desktop PC Athlon II X4 645(3.1GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Capacity NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Monitor
newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009256

But the graphics card that came with the computer sucked, it simply doesn't support 3D games.

So I went ahead and bought this graphics card:

Graphics Card:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-N520SL-1GI GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Here note that the maximum power my computer has is 220W but the graphics card needs at least 300W for it to run

So I bought this power supply unit:

Power Supply:
Newegg.com - Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply

Here's the story:

After I bought my computer and the monitor I bought the graphics card. It took me a while to figure out how to install it, but I worked my way out and installed it. So I followed the general guide to installing graphics card, remove driver first, install card, (the computer didn't have a card so the pci slots were empty) then I started my computer and tried to install the new driver with the disc that came with the graphics card. The first time it went so well that I thought it's gonna work, but after a while the screen suddenly goes back and on the top right corner it says "VGA then DVI... Read more

Im sorry to trouble you guys, but I have tried everything I can think of and have seen via google.

I tried starting my pc about 3 days ago and I got the windows loading screen up and then it all of sudden went black. To cut a long story short, my pc will not start with any nvidia drivers installed. I have tried a fresh reboot of the OS and all is good until I update the graphics driver.

I have tried re-seating the graphics card, and unplugging everything but it still isnt working.

Please could you advise on what to try next, or is my graphics card a gonner.

Thanks in advance

I deleted all of my old ATI graphics card drivers, and even used a 3rd party tool to whipe out the traces in safe mode after. I then installed my new nvidea GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics card. I installed the drivers as well as active X.

During my first gaming session with the new card, it randomly cut to a black screen and the fan started to spin at a pretty high rate. (Fan on graphics card)

Anyone have any clue what I can do here?

Hello all, thank you for taking some time to help me with this!

I bought a new PC from PCSpecialist 4 months ago and I have just found out I can't send it back to them for a repair because I have reseated my graphics card - it says that basically moving anything about voids my warranty. So I thought I'd crack this on my own (with your help!).

I have:

Intel Core i7 2600k 3.4GHz
Asus P8P67 (New Rev 3.0)
4Gb Kingston Hyper-X DDR3 2133Mhz
2Gb AMD Radeon HD 6950
120Gb OCZ Vertex 3 Series SSD
1Tb WD Caviar Black
600W Quiet plus Quad Rail PSU
Win 7(SP1 I think)

The problem (in summary):

Screen started showing some snowy lines near the top and the screen split into two - the right third of the screen on the left and the left two thirds on the right. I found that this was solved through right clicking on the youtube video and disallowing graphics acceleration

About a month later it started happening again now but also turned the screen black with only re-starting it getting it back. It then stopped turning on at all (still black screen) but now had a beep code of one long and three short. I read that it could be the graphics card needing to be reseated so I thought I'd try it - hence no warranty anymore. Sigh. I reseated the card easily but still found that black screen (my monitor said "No Signal Input"). So I switched it from the top (blue) PCI slot to the bottom (black) PCI slot which seemed to solve it, ...for 1 day. Then the same thing ... Read more

Hi,I have in the past had a lot of problems with my Nvidia K2000M on my W530. Windows have kept disabling this due to "code 43" (Yellow triangle by the display driver).I have solved this by reinstalling Nvidia drivers, but when this happened every 3 days or so, I started to suspect something was wrong. And I believe I was right.... I tried to uninstall the driver (probably a mistake) before reinstalling the driver, but now the graphics card cannot be detected at all. When I try to install Nvidia drivers I get the following error message: "NVIDIA Installer cannot continue. This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware". I also tried to disable optimus in BIOS, and enabled discrete graphics to try to force the computer to find the NVIDIA graphics card, but this obviously didnīt work. The computer then starts up with low graphcis and bad resolution. Under "Display adapters" in Device Manager there is no card detected at all (As the Intel integrated was disabled). So, is my NVIDIA graphics card defective, or is there som other solution to try to detect it? PS! I Also did a system update through Lenovos update center. Updated firmware in BIOS etc. This did not solve the problem..... Thanks,-ø

As soon as I install Intel HD Graphics 4600 in my Dell Precision M3800, the screen goes black and after rebooting, it goes black again right after Windows is booted.
Here is everything I tried:

clean installed Windows 8 (original Dell USB drive recovery media)
clean installed Windows 10
install all Windows Updates and drivers from Windows Updates
Install latest (2015) drivers manually from dell.com (M3800_Video_Driver_7C6X2_WN32_10.18.15.4248_A00.exe)
Install latest (2017) drivers from intel.com (Intel HD Graphics 4600 15.40 2017 win64_154036.4703.exe)
let Dell System Detect install drivers automatically
In Safe Mode, in Registry, set "DisplayOptimizations" to 0x0  and "NoFastLinkTrainingForeDP" to 0

RESULTS: all the same, screen goes black as soon as Intel HD Graphics 4600  is installed and remains black as soon as Windows is booted, no matter how many times you reboot.
NOTES:

I restored Windows from Advanced Startup Options each time screen would go black as a result of installing Intel HD Graphics driver, sometimes restore failed, and I clean installed Windows from USB media.
screen works fine in Safe Mode and if I disable Intel HD Graphics 4600 in device manager, Windows boots normally and screen works. 
I could live with builtin Microsoft Basic Display Adapter driver (1920x1080) but the the problem is screen brightness is stuck at maximum and there is no way to change it!

[prologue] A while back I posted a thread on here about how Age of Empires II wasn't working in Vista on my laptop. I never got it to work, but just today I tried playing it on my XP box, where it used to work - and I got the same error as in Vista. Well, someone on a different forum suggested disabling the graphics driver to play the game (as did the last commenter on my thread), so I figured I'd try that. I did, but I still got the same error, so I decided to turn the driver back on.[/prologue]



And there was where the real problems started. I couldn't figure out how to re-enable my graphics driver. When I went to do so (right-click on background, Properties, Settings, Advanced, Adaptor, if I remember correctly), it showed my VGA un-accelerated driver instead. I thought perhaps if I disabled this, it would revert to my Radeon 9600 card.

I thought wrong.

When I restarted my computer, after the Windows loading screen, I saw . . . nothing. Nothing at all. A black screen. Now I knew Windows was functioning, because when I did the keystrokes to log in, I got the sound effect, but the display was obviously disabled. Duh.

But how to get it back again?

I asked around on IRC, and I was recommended to try starting in safe mode, and deleting my drivers so that they'd be reinstalled. Whether that would have been a good idea or not, I'll never know, because safe mode wouldn't work either. Instead, the names of various system files scrolled by, and then sto... Read more

Odd that Safe Mode didn't work. From the same boot menu try selecting VGA Mode and see if you get a display then. If so then remove the graphics drivers, reboot and allow Windows to re-install them.
