GPU too big which blocks slot for Elgato HD60 Pro

Q: GPU too big which blocks slot for Elgato HD60 Pro

Hey, recently I got myself an Elgato HD60 Pro. Without thinking (stupid me), I bought it and found out I have to put it in an I BELIEVE PCI-E 2 slot. But anyways, the slot is directly underneath the slot my GPU is placed. Now, my GPU is pretty big due to the fan meaning it blocks of the slot for my Elgato, meaning I can't plug both my Elgato and my GPU in at the same time.

My GPU doesn't have USB (I've seen a few PCI risers online but they all need USB as far as I understand). Is there a way to - without getting a new motherboard etc - get them both in (I thought of some extension thing for my GPU so I can place my GPU somewhere without directly putting it in the slot)

Sorry if this is messy written, hopefully it's understandable. I have no experience with hardware whatsoever.

My Elgato HD 60 has what i call a glitch no clue what its actually called, but static pops up on the preview screen and it records it like that static and no audio. If you know how to fix that then thank you that would help a lot.

My real question is, is my processor to weak for the capture to work. I have a Intel Pentium CPU G2020 @ 2.90GHz. The system requirements for CPU are 4th generation Intel Core i5 CPU (i5-4xxx or comparable), 2 Ghz or higher, before Turbo Boost.

I really dont know much about computers so i dont know how to figure out almost any of this stuff.

I recently purchased an elgato hd60s capture card. After I set it up it showed that the card required a 3.0 usb port. I then plugged it into a port titles ss, which is a 3.0 usb port. When I went to check my Universal Serial Bus controllers I realized that I dont have 3.0 usb drivers. I dont know much about pcs and was wondering how to get these drivers.

A:Laptop or desktop for using elgato

Hi Xdelx, Welcome to PCHF!

To be honest both of those systems seem pretty low end. What is your budget for a new computer?






Here are the general Elgato Game Capture HD System Requirements.

Windows:

? Windows 7, Windows 8 or later
? 2.0 Ghz (or higher) dual core CPU, or 2.0 Ghz (or higher) multi-core i3, i5 or i7 CPU
? Sound card
? 4GB Total Installed RAM (or higher)
? Built-in USB 2.0 port



You should get a computer that is well above the minimum system requirements. You may be able to run the software with either of those systems but not particularly well.

Just today I got an Elgato Game Capture HD so that I could record myself on YouTube playing XBOX 360, XBOX 1 and Retro Game Consoles. I installed the latest version of the Elgato Game Capture software which required me to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 and also required some sort of update for Windows 7. I also downloaded the latest version of the Elgato Game Capture HD Driver. I then opened up the Elgato Game Capture software only to find that it didn't recognize my Elgato Capture device. I went into the Device Manager only to find that there was a yellow ! under the Elgato Game Capture device. I double clicked it to see what the issue was and it gave me the Code 52 error. I tried typing something in CMD to solve the problem but that didn't help. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver but that didn't help. I know that the Device itself is not broken because when a console is hooked up to it then it would show on my HDMI monitor and Retro consoles are included.
Here are some pictures that explain my situation-

I originally submitted a ticket to Elgato about this issue a few days ago, but was just told that my PC's specs weren't new enough to use this device. The ticket I submitted reads as follows:
 
"Hi. I recently installed an Elgato 4K60 Pro in my PC (replacing my outdated Hauppauge HDPVR60) to record footage at 4K 60FPS OR 1080p60FPS from my Xbox One X and am currently experiencing some serious issues with playback, making the footage that I record almost unwatchable.
 
When attempting to record in any of the given resolutions listed in the drop down menu of the 4K Capture Utility (even 720), the preview window always seems to appear choppy and is constantly stuttering. I first thought that this choppy-ness was just part of the preview window and that the footage would sort of 'work itself out' upon actual playback (opening the file in some sort of media player once I had stopped recording) but I was wrong. After opening the file, I found that the stuttering (along with what looked like the footage was being sped up) was still present, as it was in the preview window. I don't have too much experience with Elgato capture devices as this is my first time purchasing one of your products and am curious, am I doing something wrong? I've installed the correct capture software. I've installed the correct drivers for the 4K60 Pro from the official site.

A:Elgato Game Capture Device PROBLEM with Black Ops 2 [HELPME!]

Sounds like a configuration issue in your recording software/configuration.

There is no reason to deinterlace the video as it's a progressive signal (ie: 1080P) and you want to record it as a progressive signal (1080P).

As far as cables go, that device doesn't appear to offer an input options. Looks like you should be using an HDMI cable. For the most part, HDMI cables either work or they don't.

I have a AMD 7870 Dual slot video card on my Asus M5A99X-Evo Motherboard. It is installed in the first 16x slot...and I also have a PCI-e 1x XF-I Titanium Sound card. The problem I am having is that one of the 1x slots is covered by the video card, and the 2nd one is open, but right smack below the Video card. My Video card is the Sapphire 7870 GHz Edition non OC.. Attached is a picture of what I am trying to explain. My other question is: Will this cause issues since one of the GPU fans is semi covered? Its it recommended? Last question: If I move this to one of the 8x slots below on my motherboard, will it cause my 16x PCI-E slot to slow down? Thanks ahead of time for any help you can provide.

Computer Specs -

Asus M5A99x-Evo Motherboard (AM3+)
AMD FX 8350 8 Core (4Ghz)
Sapphire AMD Radeon 7870 GHz Edition (2GB)
8GB DDR3 1600 Kingston HyperX memory (2x 4GB)
500GB WD Black Edtion SATA HD
1TB WD Black Edtion SATA HD
Sound Blaster XF-I Titanium PCI-E 1x Sound Card
Thremaltake 750 80+ Bronze PS (Smart Series)
DVDRW (SATA)
DVD-ROM (SATA)
 

A:Question about PCI-e slot below dual slot video card

My opinion ...

Yes, setting up like that will have an impact. The air flow to your GPU will be restricted so it will more than likely run hotter than it did. It may still stay withing recommended specs, but it will run hotter.

The motherboard has onboard sound (Realtekģ ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC ), any particular reason why you don't use that? Onboard sound is perfectly good for gaming and the like now, its not like older machines where you needed a dedicated card for decent quality. In my opinion, you only need a dedicated card if you are doing a lot of detailed audio work (mixing, remastering and other specific audio work). This would totally remove the issue.

This is the strangest thing I've seen in the past 10 years of using computers. I have an Acer Aspire 7535-5020 laptop that came with windows 7, but I'm very picky and I wanted Windows xp back so I went onto Acer's website and downloaded all of the windows xp drivers and then formatted the laptop to Windows XP with intergrated Service Pack 3.

The computer works just fine except for one very strange oddity - the USB mouse I'm using only works when plugged into the first USB slot, it will refuse to work in the other 3 USB slots.

I'm using a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 USB which is my favorite mouse and I have 3 of them at home. When I was formatting the laptop, I had the mouse plugged into the first USB slot and now that is the ONLY slot it will work in. If I plug it into the other usb slots, the red laser will come on which means it's getting power, but it will not move the cursor and clicking either of the mouse buttons won't do anything.

When I have the Device Manager open, and I plug the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 mouse into the first USB slot, the 'Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0' entry will appear in BOTH the 'Human Interface Devices' tab and also the 'Mice and other pointing devices' tab.

However, when plugging the mouse into the other 3 usb slots, the 'Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0' entry will only appear in the 'Human Interface Devices' but NOT the 'Mice and other pointing devices' tab.

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

You can't add a slot to a motherboard.

How old is this computer that it doesn't have a PCI slot? Those have been around for quite a while. Are you sure it doesn't have one? Even AGP is not new technology.

EDIT: After seeing your other thread, are you asking if you can purchase an AGP or PCI video card? That's a totally different question, and the answer would be yes depending on which slot your motherboard has. How much it costs depends on what you plan to use the computer for. A simple one is cheap, and high-end gaming cards can get expensive.

Hello All, I'm looking under the hood of my 1st gen Thinkpad X1 Carbon, and I'm trying to identify the PCIe slots.  In particular, the following page states that I should have 2 PCI Express Mini slots:  https://support.lenovo.com/au/en/solutions/pd027202 Now I see the WLAN card and the WWAN card, and my natural assumption is that these are both in PCIe ports, but on closer inspection I see that the WLAN card's slot is only 19mm wide, whereas the WWAN card is the standard 26mm width of normal PCIe Mini ports. This raises some questions:  1. Is the WLAN connected to a proprietary slot, or is this just a different type of PCIe standard?  2. If the WLAN is connected to a proprietary slot, where is my second PCIe slot? Any help would greatly be appreciated. Regards,Adam Zebrowski-az  

A:Why is my WLAN card slot narrower than my WWAN card slot (PCIe mini)?

On closer inspection, it looks like my SSD connects to a similar-looking slot as my WLAN card.  I guess this means my WLAN card uses a SATA connection or something? I normally work with desktop PCs, so I'm unfamiliar with a lot of these laptop hardware standards. Regards,Adam Zebrowski-az-

I'm not familiar with it. But based on the image, there is no input signal (upper right box - Game Capture HD "no signal").

So the error is likely trying to tell you to change the output video type of whatever you have connected.

Hi, I installed windows 7 on my laptop (acer aspire one) and I didnt have the partition as primary it was logical(doh). So I deleted the partition and tried to make a new one with acronis disk director and it says: cannot resize partition with bad blocks.
Okay... this computer is only 2 weeks old, idk why my hard drive would be failing now.
I ran chkdsk and it said it replaced a file some .exe.
I ran an acronis report thinger if this helps

Revamped my HD recently. Was able to play Links2003 on line with friends previously. Now something is blocking and unable to find. Operating System on Desktop XP Home, Sony Computer. Need to be directed to area of problem and instructed on what to do to clear up. A 70 yr young golfer that gets mixed up occasionally. Currently using Internet Explorer, and MSN, as well as Yahoo. Now, all three may have blockers....spyware, pop-ups, etc. I have disabled as much as I know how. I also am on Cable Comcast and they most likely have security stoppers as well. I want to be able to get into Links on line with buddies and play golf. After I'm able to do that...I'd like to keep at minimum, a Virus Scan going, and pop-up blockers. Your help and time is much appreciated. pgau65 (H E L P)

I am not familiar with Outlook but with Outlook express 6, there is a setting that blocks attachments that could be virus's. The setting is in options/security. Could this be the same with Outlook?

My apologies if this is in the wrong place.

I've been having a major problem with my PC for a couple of weeks now.

I have been getting white blocks that appear when watching something in windows media player. Sometimes when a person moves, a white or bright coloured block appears (sometimes small and sometimes big).

It's been happening in my Photoshop too, bright blocks appearing on my pictures.

Does anybody know what this could be? I am in the middle of de-fragmenting my PC and doing a disk cleanup, but I don't think this will solve it.

Could anybody help me, I'm at a loose end now.

Thanks
Elise

This is really a guess, but the only thing I can imagine is a problem with the monitor. Do you have/can you borrow a known good monitor to plug in and try?
Whoa, just noticed it only happens in 2 apps. Don't know.

Hi,

Has anyone been able to get Outlook to stop blocking attachments.? I have tried everything I could find on the subject including the registry tweak , but no luck. It is very annoying that Outlook blocks everything.

thanks for any help

A:Outlook blocks

Have you tried the following?

IN the program....

Tools
Options
Security

Then UNCHECK the box next to ..
Do not allowattachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus.

Make sure this has NO tick next to it, as this makes sure you cannot open or save any attachment.

regards

After years of not seeing any failing drives, I've had several customer PC's with them recently. I'm working on one laptop for the 2nd time, same issue: bluescreen due to bad blocks. I'm thinking its time to retire it but wonder: is there a test routine that tells one "its time" ?? If I simply look at the SMART status after doing chkdsk repairs, it will show "healthy".

A:HDD with bad blocks, again. When to replace?

I've wondered the same thing.

If you Google around, you will see a lot of recommendations to replace when bad sectors are first seen--the implication being that more bad sectors will follow, sooner rather than later.

But I've never seen any reasoning behind that assumption. Maybe more bad sectors are no more likely to occur just because you have a few. I do remember that when hard drives were very small and expensive, you didn't see the recommendation to replace offered so freely--implying that they were still serviceable.

I'm not aware of any other inexpensive consumer-level hard drive tools that shed much light on this.

After installing my new (well, used) gigabyte 9800gx2 and updating drivers, when I play some games there are theseflickering fuzzy lines or blocks in a checkerboard pattern. How do I fix this?
Extra into: I tried it on Warcraft 3, street fighter 4, and Starcraft so far the first two are installed and Starcraft I had on another he before I reformatted. On Starcraft, however the fuzzy lines do not appear. In Warcraft the lines are thinner and wavier in street fighter, they are more blocky. Tomorow I will test it out on the rest of the games I have (just like Starcraft, they are not installed but I have them from before reformatting my main hd.

I will report back here with a picture from my phone and ifthe other programs have the lines. Also, I can't seem to screenshot the fuzzy lines on Warcraft. I'm either failing and getting it when they flicker or it will not show up. Anyone had this problem?
Edit: I am still covered by manufacturers warranty

My setup if needed is:
4gb ram
Amd athlon x2 5200+
Gigabyte nvidia 9800 gx2
19" LCD with 1240x1024 resolution (this is from memory but I'm pretty sure it's correct)
Update;
Yes means they have the fuzzy lines
Warcraft iii yes
Street fighter 4 yes
Starcraft no
Counter strike source yes
World of goo no

((SORRY FOR REPOSTING THIS, I POSTED IN THE WRONG FORUM))
I have this problem (and I know its not a virus, because I just reformatted my computer and the problem still persists). Every picture I see in internet explorer is messed up with little blue and red dots appearing in random places on the picture. It doesnt do this with mozilla, but still, when I download a video using that, it will have the same dots that jump around and tend to clump where the action is happening... any idea's on how to fix this?
 

A:Little blue and red blocks

A quick guess, since you just reformatted, would be to update your video drivers.

My computer at work will not let me use any email such as Yahoo or Google and I canít visit pages such as Netflix or the New York Times. There are Symantec blocks on it. I figured out that when I use a friendís AOL account it gets me around theses blocks. But I really donít want to have to pay a fee to join AOL. Can anyone think of a free program I could sign into to get around the Web blocks on my computer?

Thanks.

Im sure this question has already been asked and have tried looking all over google, but unfortunatley my knowledge of proxy servers/vpn/ssl tunneling etc is quite limited, i have tried to do my research but not got answers, i have tried using HTTP-Tunnel client, but i dont really know what im doing!

Basically i want to play steam above all things, as i have paid for my games but steam will not even load in offline mode because it needs to download my account details of something because i copied it over from my XP laptop onto this new Windows 7 so i needed to sort of compatability file. I know which ports steam needs, but i dont know how to trick the proxy server to let me use these ports or to open them, maybe it cannot be done, i dont know, so i would be very grateful for any advice

Kind Regards,

Alex

I have been having the problem recently that all AOL services, including AIM block my webserver which is running on port 80. I can access the webpage internally by typing in "192.168.1.4" in the address bar. All of my ports are forwarded correctly, I have tried resetting cable modem/router and both and still nothing works. This problem has not always existed, it just started for some reason. It still gets blocked even if I use AOL/AIM on another computer on the network.
