Preferred Solution: Can you swap the graphics card on the Lenovo Flex 5?

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

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

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

I had bought Lenovo Flex 4 1580 in December 2016, Lenovo official website shows that this laptop has AMD R7 M460 Graphics Card, but my system shows AMD R7 M360 Graphics Card. Why is this showing me previous version graphics card? Will it get restrored to default if i reset my Windows 10?

I have run 'Can you run It' and it says my graphics card (Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family) is below the minimum required. I have taken apart an old PC i had and have a graphics card from that and just wondered if anyone can tell if that one (ST Lab AGP-9200s-TV3W120D) is better. It's from 2003 so chances are it's worse but thought I'd try anyhow as funds are limited. Thanks guys.

Earlier today a new graphics card I ordered arrived in the post, I went to my PC uninstalled my current graphics card, restarted, turned it off and replaced the existing graphics card with the new one, the new graphics cards' fan was spinning correctly and it gave one long beep and two short beeps meaning a video error, i then googled the problem and found that reseating the ram may fix the problem, I did that and the video error sound disappeared but there was still nothing on the screen, i tried it in my TV too to see if the monitor was at fault, it didn't work there either.

I put the other graphics card back in and now that doesn't work. Not sure what to do.

I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate, not sure about the service pack or any other details atm/

I recently swapped my ATI x1650 card for an Nvidia 6800 card when the ATI card died. The Nvidia card is a temporary replacement while the guys at the shop try to replace the 1650.

After replacement, I uninstalled all the ATI drivers and utilities and other ATI related stuff and installed my Nvidia card, drivers, utilites and all.

During this period I hadn't attached my speakers on, so I don't know when exactly this happened, but after re-attaching the speakers (after swapping the cards) I realise I'm not getting any sound. My Realtek HD Audio control panel FAILS to detect any jack plugged in.

Volume is turned on, drivers are installed correctly, default sound is set to the Realtek HD onboard sound card.

I don't know what is wrong with my computer.

If I turn on the speaker volume to full blast, I can hear loud hissing coming out of the left speaker. If I mute/turn down the volume (in windows, not speaker), I hear a slight pop when it mutes/the volume reaches 0. If I try to play something I hear some very faint droning from the right speaker (hiss from left speaker still present), even at full volume.

I suspect this has something to do with the jack detection program? But I'm not sure.

Has anyone had this problem before? Please help!

I recently updated to the Windwos 10 Fall Creators update (Build 1709, 16299.125), and as soon as I updated, the graphics driver failed and switched to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. I tried updating and rolling back the driver without success. My driver right now is at the latest version (10.18.10.4358). I already tried fixing this issue with Microsoft support but they couldn't find any solutions. Microsoft Support Link: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/intel-hd-graphics-not-working-...

I accidentally deleted my nvidia graphics drivers, and the latest version doesnt work. Knowing the drivers which came with the computer will let me re install them. Thanks.

A:Lenovo flex 3 1580 Nvidia graphics drivers fabric version

You might check to see if the earlier drivers are still present on your system by doing the following Right-click on StartSelect Device ManagerLeft-click on Display Adapters to expand.Right-click on your display adapter, and select Update DriverSelect "Browse my computer for driver software"Select "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"This should provide a list of drivers previously installed on your systemTo switch to one of them, choose an older driver and click Next.It would be hard to know exactly what driver was installed when your system was new, because Lenovo does not provide release notes for its drivers as its certifies them, but older drivers for the Nvidia 940M card should be available from Nvidia, as well as newer driver versions that those release by Lenovo that may resolve your problem. which can be found here https://www.geforce.com/drivers Good Luck,

I don't keep track of these things, but I recall Lenovo preventing on the BIOS level owners from upgrading their WiFi adapters. Not sure if that also was the case with the T series or not. Question is: what's Lenovo's current policy regarding upgrading WiFi adapters? Can owners purchase an aftermarket card and upgrade at their leisure? Does Lenovo block unauthorized cards, so if you want upgrade, you have purchase one through their store (if they offer upgrades through their store?)? Or doesn't Lenovo allow you to upgrade in any case, apart from purchasing a next generation machine? Reason I'm asking is because 802.11ax is around the corner. Around the corner = next year, but I need a new machine this year, so of course I'd prefer the option to upgrade WiFi whenever I need to later down the road.

I have a Dell XPS 15 L502X Laptop which has an integrated graphics card and a nvidia geforce gt 540m. Is it possible to replace the nvidia graphics card and if so what cards would be able to fit in the slot?
 

A:Can i swap out my nvidia graphics card in my Dell XPS 15 L502X laptop?

Nothing you could buy on the open market. You should really contact Dell and see if a better replacement is available for that model.
From the NVidia forum on this exact subject:
"Some laptops are fitted with MXM modules, which are basically mini PCIe graphics cards. These modules are replaceable, yet rarely upgradeable. Normally the laptop will be designed to support a particular module, both in terms of power & cooling as well as well as form factor. Unfortunately despite the fact that 'MXM' is a standard, there are enough differences between module and laptop design that you are probably stuck with what you've got.

For laptops which are not fitted with MXM modules, the only option is to replace the motherboard as the graphics chipset will be built in.

Caveats for others:

- If the laptop you bought had faster graphics options at point of purchase - i.e. the 580M was offered but you only went for the 540M, then it is possible that a higher performance MXM module may be available. It might take quite some trial and error and time on Google to find this out.

- If the laptop was available with an NVIDIA graphics card, but you only opted for the Intel on-board at the time, then it is possible you could find a replacement motherboard which has the NVIDIA chip fitted."

 HelloI have a flex 3 1470 (model 80JK001GUS) which comes with a NVIDIA graphics card (940m).

Hello,I can't seem to find specific information about this pc related to this topic. I have a client that wants to have a hdmi port and dual monitor installed. I looked everywhere in the bios settings, I tried using a usb-to-vga adapter & and vga, dvi-d cable & vga (this mirrors both monitors, but cannot extend the display). When I changed the settings on the bios to use the built in graphics, it gives me the option to enable multiple monitors but cannot use my pcie graphic card. If i select to use the pcie graphic card, i cannot use the built in graphic ports or the usb-to-vga adapter (it does not see the other monitor) and also if I use the dvi adpater and the vga it mirrors the display. I'm guessing that the bios does not support dual graphic cards but thought of asking here. The reason the client wants this is to be able to connect a projector using hdmi and to have dual monitors. Any information will be greatly appreaciate it. Thank you.

Hi DonMaidment,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
 
You will need to look on two things
 
- Compatible Graphics
Here are some compatible graphics adapter from the Lenovo H515 Maintenance Manual
If you are going to purchase a Video card that's not on this list, I suggest you do a test First before purchasing it as I'm not too sure if other Graphics model will work.

 
- Power Supply
  Your Power Supply must match the Videocard Requirement,
or else you will need to upgrade the power supply as well.

I've tried downloading different/older drivers, I've tried disabling and then reenabling the graphics card, I've looked around the internet and nobody seems to have the a solution for this problem.

But when I go on the Crimson menu for AMD, it tells me that it is disabled. Whenever I try to play a video game on my computer and I go to the graphics options menu, the video game tells me that it is using the integrated graphics instead of the AMD graphics and I have no option to switch.

Hello.  Certain games I play on my Lenovo Yoga 900 crash and the reason is that I think the graphics card is not powerful enough. The display driver often stops responding. I was wondering if I could upgrade the graphics card from the Intel HD Graphics 520 to the GeForce GTX 980 or something else. Thanks.

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
There is no way to upgrade the graphics subsystem on your machine. The Intel HD 520 is integrated in the chipset package. Though some laptops have discrete graphics chips, almost none were socketed. They're soldered, instead.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.
Regards.

So I have a Lenovo h50 desktop and have upgraded the PSU to support a new graphics card but come to find out the graphics card (amd rx480 4 gb) is being blocked by the ram making it usable to plug in all the way, do you suggest a new motherboard all around? The subject should take you to the exact PC here is an image as well. I don't know what type of motherboard this is. All I know is it can use an amd a10 7800 processor. Here is a link to the actual PC as well.    https://flash.newegg.com/Product/N82E16883798515

Hi Lenovo, I've recently been trying to upgrade my H30-50s graphics card. In fact, I've bought the wrong card twice from misguided advice. Ended up buying 2 cards that were 12cm instead of the needed 7cm or so. Believe me, that's been frustrating enough. Anyway, I've finally found a card that'll fit. It's MSI's low profile 750ti. Its got plenty of power. Looks great. Hopefully should fit. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Nvidia-750Ti-Graphics-Dvi-D/dp/B00ZA1IFGA/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8... Wattage on Amazon says 400W. Wattage on Nvidia website says 300W. As far as I'm aware, the H30-50 has a 240W PSU? Is this graphics card an absolute no-go? I have the i3-4160 model. 12gb ram, upgraded with 8gb recently. 1TB HDD.  If this is not a possibility, is it possible to upgrade the PSU considering how slimline these pcs are? I'd much rather find a new PSU than have to try and find another, decent specification, low profile graphics card. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello all, I have been having multiple issues trying to install the latest driver for the AMD card (AMD Radeon R9 M275) onto my Lenovo Y40-70 (running Windows 10). I am now trying to play Fallout 4, but can't even open the game without it crashing immediately. Solutions online say to update the graphics card. I don't know why, but the only drivers I am able to install come from Lenovo's site. None of the drivers provided by AMD work. The driver I have right now is version 15.200.1050.0 , and it's dated from 06/30/2015. The latest driver for the card I have (according to AMD) is 15.30.1025.1001, released 12/17/2015.  However, when I try to download the driver from this page (http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+10+-+64), I get an error halfway through installation.  The error says that my operating system is not supported. Since I upgraded to Win10 from Win8.1, I tried downloading the driver for Win8, too, but the same error occurs. Why can't I update my graphics driver? Do I have to wait for Lenovo to release the update on their site? How long would that take? Are there any workarounds so I don't have to wait for Lenovo to catch up?  Thanks for the help!

A:Lenovo Y40-70 : How Do You Install AMD Graphics Card Updates?

AMD catches up again with errors lol, I stuggled with these updates for nearly 3 years and did not update since they would just give me more BSODs
 
Coming back to your issue,
1) Go to Control Panel > Programs & features
2) Remove AMD drivers and software, Restart.
3) Download the latest drivers for your GPU, keeping your OS in mind.
4) Install the drivers.
 
Let me know where you face an issue and what is the error.
Preferably take some screenshots. Thanks.
