Windows 8 Booting (IGPU works, PCI-E GTX750Ti doesn't work

Q: Windows 8 Booting (IGPU works, PCI-E GTX750Ti doesn't work

Hi guys,

I have a problem and I've tried to figure it out for the whole day now.

It's mind-boggling and SUPER frustrating at the same time.

Basically I installed a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 Pro to my computer and when I plug both DVI cables into the GTX 750Ti (I run Dual monitors) it goes to the 'Windows 8 Blue logo start up but then suddenly my monitors have no signal (and my mouse turns off, aka it looks like my USB shutsdown) but my mobo is still on + cpu fans/case fans, etc.

So I tried using the IGPU and it works fine, you can plug one DVI into the IGPU DVI out, and one monitor DVI to the GTX750Ti and it will boot into windows fine.

The biggest thing that boggles me is that upon a fresh install it worked fine, AND I can reinstall windows fine again, but it *SEEMS* like after I install the NVIDIA graphics card drivers it starts happening again and I can only use IGPU to boot into windows. Now, when I first installed windows it was working fine, till I shut it down and it won't boot again hence having to try IGPU. I tried formatting, I've tried everything!

All my parts are brand new, I've tried everything there is to try, and googled alot (I've enabled/disabled secureboot multiple times, I've done 'primary display adapter 'PCI-E' and switched between them), I've tried almost everything!

My specs are as follows:

ASUS Geforce GTX750Ti GPU
Asrock H97M-ITX/ac MOBO
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb
Samsung EVO 840 SSD

I've fiddled around with all the Asrock bios settings to no avail.

Someone help me PLZ!!!! As I need my computer for the week

Preferred Solution: Windows 8 Booting (IGPU works, PCI-E GTX750Ti doesn't work

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: Windows 8 Booting (IGPU works, PCI-E GTX750Ti doesn't work

The craziest thing is - Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't - remember it goes to blue windows 8 logo AND THEN there is no monitor signal.
If I use Integrated Graphics it 100% always works. I'm thinking it might be some sort of bios problem maybe? I really don't know anymore :|

I have 3 drives, C:, D:, and E:. E: is just a storage drive. XP was originally installed on the D: drive. I installed Win7 on the C: drive following the instructions at Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP. After installing Win7, I didn't get an option to boot XP so I used EasyBCD to add an XP entry to the boot menu. That worked, but after I boot into XP, if I shutdown or restart I get an error message about the Windows Boot Manager that says

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem
File: \boot\bcd
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data."

Then I have to run startup repair from the Win7 disk. But then I just get stuck with Win7 and no boot menu entry for XP. If I try EasyBCD again, the same process results. How can I fix this?

A:Dual booting XP and Windows 7 doesn't work after using XP

Please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Management drive map and listings, using Snipping Tool in Start Menu.

Are you using EasyBCD 2.0? Use this version, select Edit Boot Menu to remove XP listing. Then Add it back, accept boot files, let autocomplete, Save, Restart.

If this fails, then on BCD Backup/Repair tab, Repair Boot files.

Hello. I'm having a rather incredible problem with Windows 8 Pro. Sometimes, after booting, my notebook's keyboard doesn't work at all. Some facts about all this to inform the diagnosis:
The keyboard doesn't work in Windows; it does in the UEFI bios. (Ie I boot to windows and it doesn't work, I then reboot, test it in the bios and see that it works; I go back to windows and it still doesn't work there.)
It happens randomly: maybe once every ?5? boot ups. Definitly not always.
**I think** (but aren't sure) that it only happens when booting, not when coming back from hibernation or sleep.
Unplugging the battery or the power cord doesn't help.
I'm fairly careful about malware and I don't think it's related. I don't have any malware protection other than Windows'.
The System section of the Event Viewer only has one apparently relevant event, "The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device ROOT\WPD\0000.". Notice this is related to a Logitec input driver, and I'm having trouble with the notebook's built-in keyboard. I never plugged a Logitec keyboard (but I did use a Logitec mouse in the past).
Nevertheless I acted upon that event log. Some pages elsewhere (The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device... error - Windows 7 Help Forums) suggested changing the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework from Manual (triggered) to automatic. It didn't help.
It has always solved itself after a random amount of time (from a few minutes to an hou... Read more

A:Windows 8: keyboard laptop randomly doesn't work after booting

Some additional info:
It was suggested somewhere else that turning off Windows 8's fast boot option would help; it didn't.
I just completed a run of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and found nothing except for 4 autohotkey .bin files that seem ok for the rest of the AVs at virustotal.
Nothing relevant seems to be logged in the System log when the keyboard comes back up.

Thanks again!

The igpu in my 3570k won't enter standby mode and I can't seem to disable it. I am not using it nor do i want to use it. So two questions. Will leaving it enabled hinder performance or cooling? and How can I disable it completely? Now it wasn't always broken. It used to enter standby mode after after a couple of restarts. Noticed this when I gutted my case for spring cleaning I'm sure one of the suggestions will be to roll back my uefi/bios as it may be the problem since I have recently updated, however the latest update fixes an issue I was having with my gtx670 FTW randomly failing to pass POST. I'm hoping there's another solution. I googled around and was unable to find anything. Could really use some help. Thanx

Just to let you guys know, I'm new so forgive any mistakes.

The title says it all.

I get a replacement GPU (GT240) because my first GPU stopped working. The first time I install the card, nothing comes up on the monitor so I plug my D-Sub cable back into my integrated graphics. I download the new drivers. I restart my computer and what do you know my gpu works. All this was done at night by the way. The next day when I wake up, I turn on my computer. Nothing appears on my screen. I still have D-Sub plugged into my gpu. On the monitor it says "no signal".

I should enough power. I have a 450w Corsair PSU.
My first GPU (actually second) was a GIGABYTE GT 240 1GB DDR3
The replacement is an ASUS (they didn't have another GIGABYTE card) GT 240 1GB DDR3

A:New Graphics, Works Once, Doesn't Work Again!

Uninstall all existing drivers and display devices in device manager and add or remove programs. Download driver sweeper and run in windows normal and safe mode. Reinsert new graphics card and go to nvidia's website to download newest drivers.

Good luck!

My wifi was working just fine last night, and then suddening just stopped. I was unable to use my Amazon Video, and my laptop, so it was not just the devices. I have uverse internet. When I connect the ethernet cable to my laptop, it works. I have unplugged and restarted several times. I just now noticed that when I walk away from the room the router is in, and go into the room where my television is, the wifi disconnects and I can no longer get on the internet. There's a black device of some sort that is plugged into an outlet in a room in between the router and the TV-I know I should already know this, but is that something that is connected to my wifi - like a signal booster? As I type, sitting in the room with my router, the internet has gone off again, and will have to plug my laptop into the ethernet cable to send this message.
Sometimes my wifi shows up as an option to connect to, and sometimes it doesn't.

I have a Gateway NE56R31U and it runs Windows 8. About 2 weeks after I got this laptop my integrated webcam would not work it would just say that no webcam was detected. Just recently my webcam started working out of the blue and then the next time I would look it would not work. This is getting pretty annoying and I have looked everywhere to find how to fix this problem and I can't find anything. Everything getting posted is for Dell or HP so this is my last hope. I could really use the help to fix my problem. Thank you.

...all the while being connected via dial-up. In other words, I can dial-up to the internet and be connected, but my browser may or may not load pages. It becomes a trial-and-error thing, where if the browser doesn't load the pages, I disconnect from the internet and reconnect. Eventually, I'll get a "good connection" and be able to search the 'net. Initially, I thought I was "Working Offline" while I was connected to the 'net.

To clarify: I always have a working connection to the 'net. It's just a matter of whether MSIE "wants" to load the pages or not.

Before yesterday, I never had a problem with it; I would connect to the 'net and BOOM!, I'd be ready to go. I should also say that I was working with files in the C:\WINDOWS directory...messing with files and whatnot. I think what may be causing the unsavory behavior is that I touched, moved, altered, something that I shouldn't have and now it's giving the browser problems. It's my sister's computer...help!

A:Temperamental browser sometimes works/doesn't work (m)

The first thing you can try is a repair of IE. If your version is 5.5 go to the Start button > Run and copy and paste the command below exactly as you see it:

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\
Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
If the browser version is IE 6 the command instead would be:

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\
Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"

When the small box pops up be sure to check it to Repair the browser.

I have IIS 7.5 running in Win7 Pro.

When I install a certificate I first create a certificate request. The certificate does install fine. After a while the certificate doesn't work any more. I try to install the certificate again and it says it doesn't match the certificate request. What is deleting the certificate request and the friendly name of the certificate so the certificate doesn't work?

Could it be CCleaner that is deleting the info?
In what file/registry is that information stored. Maybe it's a bat file I created to delete temp files?
If I knew where it was stored I could possibly figure it out.

I was hoping for some help.

I have a seagate 2 TB external HDD. It has 1 FAT32 partition. Everything works as expected in Windows Vista/7 and even in Ubuntu.

When connecting the external HDD to any XP machine (tested 3 computers with XP), the device will not show up under My Computer.

It is visible in Device Manager.

Under Disk Management, the drive shows up without any labelling and has improper file system and partitioning! It's as though the partition table is messed up, however, the drive works perfectly on any Vista/WIN7/Linux pc.

More info:
WIN7 Sees 1.86 TB, 1 partition:Fat32
XP Sees 3 TB (yes, three terabytes!), 4 partitions. 2 partitions show as UNALLOCATED, 1 partition UNKNOWN, and 1 partition (OS/2 Boot).

Not only is the capacity incorrect, but darn well everything else about the drive shows up incorrect under Disk Management. This happens with all XP PCs. Hate to sound redundant, but works well under any other OS.

Also, I ran a SFC /SCANNOW with one XP machine in the event the FAT32 drivers or DLLs were corrupted and no resolve. I reinstalled XP on the same machine and the results were identical.

Thank you for your time and hopefully, with your help, we can resolve this quickly.


A:External HDD: Works in WIN7, Doesn't work in XP

Did you format it with a GUID Partition table instead of a master boot record? 32 bit XP doesn't recognize GPT. I doubt it is that though because there is supposed to be a protective MBR inside the GPT that would make the disk look like a 2TB partition of unknown type and no free space to 32 bit XP.

I purchased a dell 15r (N5010), and have had it for about 3 days. It is a core i3 2.27Ghz, 4Gb RAM. I did a clean install of the OS to get rid of all the bloatware. I then downloaded the respective drivers from the dell website and the resource CD that came with the laptop. After the clean OS install i started having problems with my connection. The computer will not connect to the wireless connection in my room which is very close to the router, and it will say "Windows was unable to to connect to "xxxx" The thing is that other computers in the house all work with the wireless and are farther away from the router. Also my sisters computer which is a 10.1 Asus netbook connects better to the internet than my $900 one. I can only connect to the internet when I am not in my room, but the thing is, is that even my iPhone works in my room. Also i previously had a desktop computer with a wireless adapter and it would work on my room. All the drivers are updated and theres no problems on the device manager, what could be causing this? Its really annoying me that I can't connect to the internet on my room when any computer can even my iphone or a 10.1 Asus netbook, even when I move it into my room.

First of all, I am new to the forums, and really don't know if i can ask this question because it might not be related to W7.( I posted it here becase at anytime this forum is visited by over 10000 people) Anyways:
I have a router tp link td 8840t.
It is a small modem which i got from my isp and is good enough for my needs. When i use bridged mode and connect using broadband connection of W7 internet is awesome.
However if I use pppoeInternet becomes very choppy.
Now I was wandering why could this be? I experimented with various dns' from google ublic to opendns to my isp's dns but no matter what I try it's always choppy. So I was wondering if any of you guys or gals from this forum could help me?

A:Using bridged mode works but pppoe doesn't work

To my knowledge ADSL 2 (+ or whatever) does not use PPPoE for authentication. The authentication for connecting to your ISPs network, allowing you internet access, is done by the modem/router serial # or the MAC address. So trying to use PPPoE is why you aren't getting any INet access. Reset the modem/router box back to factory specs. The reason you are getting good INet access with it set to Bridge Mode is it is then authenticating with your ISP but your Win 7 computer is now getting a Public IP address, not a good thing to do. Bridge mode basically make is just a modem so you can install your own router and the add on router would be set to Dynamic IP Address, Again No PPPoE. So set the modem router to Dynamic and see what happens.

I have Win 7 and Win 8 dual booting on my brand new Dell Vostro laptop. The wireless works beautifully while using Win 7, but when I switch to Win 8... the actual Fn+F2 wireless switch has no effect whatsoever!! So I know the machine is OK, the network is OK, but what could be making the machine act differently under Windows 8??? Device manager and details say the driver is up to date.. What do I look for next?? I don't think I'm going to be able to get a call through to Microsoft!!

we are having an issue where when we try to copy and paste text, links, etc. the first time it will not paste anything.  But if you copy it a second time it works.  But if you close IE and reopen it and then try to copy anything from IE windows
again the same process happens again.  We have this happening on several windows 7 enterprise workstations with IE 9 and one with windows 8 and IE 11. 

any ideas?  i'm fresh out.

A:Copy Paste doesn't work first time but works on 2nd try

Did you try CTRL+C/CTRL+V to finish the copy/paste function?
Also, you can run IE in No Add-on mode. Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (with no add-ons).

If this issue still occurs, please attempt to reset IE settings.
If those methods don?t work, you can reinstall IE to see if this issue disappears.
How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer in Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP
In addition, you may check whether this issue happens on other places like wordpad.

If also the same issue, try update keyboard and mouse drivers.
If the issue still happen when trying ctrl+c / v, we also can test the issue in clean boot mode. Considering 3rd part applications/service conflicts.

Ok this is classic.

I have 2 windows live email accounts, one personal that I'm getting away from or wanting to end using, and one for business that I'm primarily using now.

Moderator ETAF - Removed Email - as you will get a lot of spam by having these listed - Robots - go though forums to harvest real email address

Both emails are Hotmail.com accounts

Well here is the thing, I can log into the legion email, but I cannot log into the carefree email.

I have ran ad sweeps, spyware sweeps, cleared all cookies, cache, even tried different browsers.

The first account logs in normaly it says something strange in the lower left like connecting to snt26.server etc... when I try to connect to the legion account and it works. The carefree account says in the address bar or tab connecting to snt126.server, but in the lower left it says connecting to snt109.server swt109.server, and for 3 days it has timed out. It will never connect.

The carefree one is my business email and the email I primarily use, and for some reason it's not letting me go in there at all, anyone have any ideas, and no I didn't block any sites and even if I did, there is no reason why one email would work and one won't. But I've hit try again about 30 times now, and it just ain't working.

Thanks for any help you can give me, this is crazy,

Hi there,

I am trying to access www.magictv.co on two different laptops, but I keep getting 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' errors with all the web browsers on both laptops. However, when I access the website on two different mobile phones on the same Wi-Fi connection as I use on the laptops, the website works fine!

It seems that its something to do with the laptops. I tried cleaning the cache and have also changed the DNS in Control Panel, but still doesn't work.

Does anyone know a way of fixing it?

Thank you in advance!

A:Website doesn't work on computer, but works on Mobile using same Wi-Fi connection

In my opinion, either your LAN settings are not correctly specified for your browsers (you might have proxy enabled). Check Internet Options->Connections->LAN Settings.

If that's not the problem some firewall or anti-virus might be blocking it.

Hope it helps.

Hello, I've had this problem with my laptop display for about half a year. When the laptop starts, the backlight turns on, but there is no display of Windows. When connected to an external monitor or projector, this displays the image with no problem. Thus, my question is: if my GPU and backlight are working, what component is causing the problem and how can I fix it? It is worth mentoning that sometimes on start up the display came back to life, and then if no shutdown or battery depletion occured, it would function normally. However, if the battery ran out, the problem came back (since I very often just put the laptop on sleep, this system functioned for a while...) Then, a couple of weeks ago this happened again, and the display hasn't worked since. I am now working with an external monitor.  Looking forward to your answers. Many thanks, Stefania

Hi. I formatted both my laptop and desktop computer. When i did with my laptop, everything was great. Wireless still worked. Of course i have my linksys router connected to get the wireless.
I then formatted my desktop. Its a dell. When i did this, everything seemed great. However, i noticed that if i remove my wireless router and just connect my cable modem wired, it works. However, when i connect my wireless router, then my wireless internet works but my WIRED connection does not work. It has this message that says can't connect.
Can someone help me here? I don't think this has ever happened before. I mean, there were many times where my desktop got formatted and my wired internet worked and i could not get my wireless connection to work. But never had i had my wireless work and my wired connection not work. Can someone help me on this? The one thing i did this time was after i installed the drivers with my windows cd, i then deleted the old windows file that was about 25 gb. Could that be a reason?

Hello Dynamite, My name is Dusty, and hopefully I am able to help you out some.

Do you have windows updated? Also, Windows update can check for drivers automatically.

Do you have a LAN driver and wireless adapter driver installed? If windows update doesn't find them, look them up on your motherboard's manufacturer's website and your adapter's manfacturer's website, respectively.

Follow this link to uninstall/reinstall wireless adapter: Internet speed suddenly slow?. Believe it or not, It may help with your problem.

I am trying to open a pop up chat window on a website and when i click on the link it opens a chat window that says the pop up should open soon or click on this link. This is normal, however when i click on the link the same window pops up again except that it keeps refreshing, making a clickin noise (like i keep pressing a link a lot of times), and the loading bar on the page keeps reloading as well. This keeps going o for about half an hour and then it says the page I am trying to load has expired, and i don't end up getting redirected to the chat window. I have contacted the organisation it is with and they said no one else had complained of the problem, and to make sure pop ups were enabled. So I have checked that:
-Pop ups are enabled
-Cookies are enabled
-That there is no virus or malware on my computer.

Still nothing.

I have also tried the website on all other browsers (safari, firefox, chrome and IE).

This problelm also occurs for every laptop/ computer in my house, except doesn't occur when I access the webpage using my mobile phone (in my house)! Very Weird!
Any suggestions?

I'm trying to figure out if my problem is my graphics card (EVGA GTX 460 1GB) or my motherboard (Biostar TZ68A+ LGA1155).

This computer is a brand new build. Please click my system specs for more details.

I have two PCI-E 2.0 slots. There is one x16 slot and one x4 slot.

90% of the time, my machine freezes a few seconds after powering on (at the BIOS logo screen or a few seconds after that) while inserted in the x16 slot. Sometimes it works, however, yet it is so infrequently that I've given up on the x16 slot for now. It will even freeze after I've entered my BIOS settings page, even just while browsing around in it.

The same graphics card in my PCI-E 2.0 x4 slot works fine (if you ignore the fact that it's running at 1/4 it's potential speed). At least I can boot the machine up.

I've spoken with a few different professionals about this, and the conclusion is that my problem lies either (a) with my PCI-E x16 slot; or (b) with my GTX 460. Apparently the graphics card COULD work just fine in the x4 slot and still be damaged.

Now, I know that you're going to tell me to try a different card in my computer, or try the card in a different computer. However that isn't practical for me at the moment.

I was wondering what you guys think, or if anyone has experience with this first-hand.

What are you leaning towards? Mobo, or Gfx card?

A:Graphics card in PCI-E x16 doesn't work, works fine in the x4 slot ??

Should also have mentioned that I've run three passes with Memtest86 without any errors.

Hi all.
I've just recently purchased a generic wireless mouse from eBay.
more specifically, this one: 2.4GHz USB Receiver Wireless Optical Mouse F PC Laptop | eBay
it doesn't work. I'm running Windows 7 64bit and it started installing the drivers, first it was installing "HID Wireless Mouse", then it switched to "USB Input Device" but failed after 3 seconds. now it's listed in Device Manager as "USB Input Device" with yellow sign that indicates it doesn't work.
I tested it in 2 other Windows 7 32bit computers and it works just fine! installing drivers and everything.
moreover - I testes my bro's logitech wireless mouse on my 64bit Windows 7 computer and it works fine.
I think Windows fails on recognizing it. I mean the drivers are there.. the Logitech Mouse works but mine doesn't.. how do I make it work?

P.S. here are 3 attached images:

Good day,

I have an Asus Z68 mainboard with UEFI-BIOS. Windows 7 Professional 64bit is installed in UEFI mode on a GPT partitioned drive (SSD). It worked flawlessly.

Now I added my second, old harddrive, that is still MBR formatted.
Windows won't start anymore, instead I am seeing "Windows is loading files", then a blinking cursor, and that's all.

I have two options in BIOS regarding boot priority:
1) I can boot from the SSD as primary priority
2) I can select an option called "Windows Boot loader", I think this refers to the UEFI boot code that Windows wrote to the UEFI.

If I select the first option, I get the "Windows is loading files screen" and then the "Windows has detected a startup error, do you want to repair the system startup" screen. If I select "Start Windows normally", I get a blinking cursor and then nothing. If I select "Repair startup", I see "Windows is loading files", and then again the "Startup repair screen". It is an endless loop.

If I select the second option, I get "Windows is loading files", then a blinking cursor, and nothing more.

Is there any way to get my Windows to boot again without disconnecting or re-partitioning the old harddrive?

Note that the old harddrive is NOT for booting, as it is just a datastore.

Recently I'm getting some trouble with my home server and I thought I'll ask here before troubleshooting it myself (a bit short on time).

I didn't notice it for some time because it is fully automated and works by shared resources and telnet. I noticed it when I got back home and... nothing :D (lights, ventilation and many more are connected to it).

When I tried to use VNC it failed. When I went to the box and checked display there was no BSOD, just black screen, like when PC is connected to power but turned off. After restart everything worked fine. I set up some logging and dumps in case of error / bsod and left it be.

After one day I tried to use VNC and it failed, display was dead too. Services and shares worked FINE tho. Power off / restart buttons DIDN'T work, I had to hold off 4 sec.

After restart - logs clean, no dumps, main suspect VGA card.
What do you think, did you ever encountered anything similar? What can be failing? Most likely OS or hardware error?

A:Display/VNC doesn't work but file/service sharing works fine

After some observation VGA is fine, no power problems either. It looks like its a mobo problem (noticed wrong system time). I'll sit through post next time I restart it and reset bios.
