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 just picked up an HP dx2000 desktop computer that has the "Intel Extreme Graphics 2" onboard video card. Im trying to play World of Warcraft on the machine and it is a bit jumpy due to what I assume is the graphics card. The system has 1Gb of RAM so I dont believe it has anything to do with the RAM.

My question is, will my system benifit from a PCI graphics card or is the bus too slow for PCI to show any type of improvement? The only reason I say PCI is because the system does not have an AGP slot.

Thanks!

Is this video card sufficient to run SIMS games? I am thinking of purchasing a Dell with this card installed.
 

A:Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2

It should run it if you get a processor(preferably a pentium 4 instead of a celeron) that's above 2ghz.

Neither intel extreme 2 or sis mirage2 are good at games. I have integrated intel extreme 2 graphics in my one system. If I use it I get a score of about 4,000 points on aquamark3(about 4 frames per second, a real slideshow), but when I use my nvidia 6600 graphics card I get about 40,000 points, (about 40frames per second, a reasonable rate). The 6600 128mb is about 10X as fast as intel extreme2. The 6600 costs about $110 usd. You need an agp or pci-express port to use the graphics card though, which most cheap dell systems don't have(they can't be upgraded cheaply).

Hello every one, I'm having a problem. I want to install a better graphics card to my compaq presario 2223US notebook. It has intel extreme graphics 2 which isn't very good with new 3D games. I heard it was very hard to remove and may not be removable at all. Is it possible to remove it? all answers are thanked.
 

A:removing Intel extreme graphics 2

Well intel extreme graphics 2 is a chip built into the motherboard so you can't remove it but you can dissable it in bios allowing the instalation of a seperate video card.
However most notebooks don't have slots for video card upgrades so chances are you won't be able to upgrade your video card.

I want to get my parents an LCD for their Dell PC. The PC is using Intel Extreme onboard graphics which claims to support resolutions of:

350 MHz DAC for 1800x1440 @ 85Hz max CRT resolution or [email protected] max FP resolution

However, here is what I found for supported resolutions:
1024 x 768, 16M colors (60, 70, 75, 85, 100,120 Hz)
1152 x 864, 16M colors (60, 70, 75, 85, 100 Hz)
1280 x 1024, 16M colors (60, 75, 85, 100 Hz)
1600 x 1200, 16M colors (60 Hz)
1920 x 1440, 64K colors (60, 75 Hz)
2048 x 1536, 64K colors (60 Hz)

Those may be for CRT and maybe not for LCD. I just don't want to buy the monitor and have it not work.
 

A:Intel Extreme Graphics and LCD WideScreen

Just get an LCD and a cheapo graphics card for like $30. Get like a X300 or Geforce 6200 or something. They are cheap, and support resolutions of up to 2560x1600 at full 16m color instead of crappy 64k. Also, they come with a VGA and a DVI output (DVI is for LCDs and that intel graphics card doesn't have DVI) so it will work.

Hopefully it has an agp expansion slot so you can install a decent graphics card, but sadly many computers with intel extreme graphics completely lack this slot, and hence are stuck with very low end graphics.

i just got my pc fixed from a local shop too.. pics below
if anyone can help me id appreciate it!!!btw i am on Windows xp PRO



 

A:need help on installing intel extreme graphics card

Intel Extreme Graphics aren't a graphics card- but instead integrated graphics chipsets. This means your system must already have integrated Intel graphics on the motherboard. As you've stated, you already have SiS integrated.. so which one does your mainboard have? You can't just install the Intel drivers and have it "change" the integrated graphics chip your system has. You'll get the INF error if you try to install Intel Extreme Graphics on a system without this chipset on it.

If you can provide your system stats, this would be helpful for providing advice on what you need to do. Neither SiS nor Intel integrated graphics are very good or supported for many 3D games, so it's highly recommended you consider upgrading to a new videocard and disabling the on-board/integrated graphics entirely.

Intel Extreme Graphics 2 XGA 1280x800 support?

Hi, im new here and i really have searched hard for many weeks to resolve this issue to no avail. I will be very impressed if someone can help.

The basic driver that came with the computer, regularily when i open a browser window or video window, the screen goes stripey grey. Everything seems to be fine underneath as i can shut down with no problems but no screen until i reboot.

I installed the latest drivers (and tried those inbetween to no avail) and this seems to overcome this problem but there seems to be no support for XGA resolution.

The new driver says in display>settings that monitor is digital flat monitor 1280 x 1024, but my screen is 1280 x 800 (XGA) and there is no option to change that. The only resolution that is usable is 1280 x 768, which fits the screen, but the text and icons are slightly distorted.

Ive searched all driver sites, intel drivers and the give the same driver for the GM and GME.
Is there any other drivers i could possible use for this resolution or is there one i can't find.

Hi, I just got a Dell Dimension 3000 computer that has integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 and no AGP slot. I was thinking of buying a 128MB or 256MB Nvidia/ATI PCI video card to improve gaming performance.

My computer's specs are: P4 3.0Ghz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 cache and 256MB DDR PC3200 RAM.

Do you think I would get any tangible, noticeable improvements in video playback quality and gaming performance? Or will the slowness of PCI just negate any benefits of the better video card?

If there are noticeable benefits to upgrading, which should I choose, the 128MB or the 256MB?

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!

If your computer has an "on-board" Intel display adapter and uses the Intel Extreme Graphics 2 drivers, version 14.2(6.14.10.3792) was released today to replace version 14.1(6.14.10.3762).

After installing the new version and rebooting, my HP N5495 laptop with Windows XP refused to go beyond a black screen. I went into safe mode and reinstalled it, then rebooted again, but still no luck. I went into safe mode a second time and attempted to roll back to the old version, but the rollback function did not work. I went into safe mode a third time and installed the old version(which I always save), then rebooted. Everything returned to normal.

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

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

I am building a Web Server using Windows Web Server 2008 R2 which I understand to be based on Windows 7 as for dealing with SSD drives and TRIM. I am getting so much different information for recommendations in other forums, hopefully someone here can clear this up for me. Some are insisting on Intel, swearing they blow away OCZ, but I see performance charts showing the new Vertex 2 consistently performing better then the X25 -Extreme

1.) Does using any form of RAID with Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 create the need to partition the drive only utilizing half of it. I have been told that there is no TRIM when using RAID.

2.) Is the OCZ Vertex 2 with Max Read: up to 285MB/s, Max Write: up to 275 MB/s, Sustained Write: up to 250 MB/s, and Random Write 4KB (Aligned): 50,000 IOPS now competitive with the Intel x25-Extreme drives featuring Sequential Access: Read up to 250MB/s, Sequential Access-Write: up to 170 MB/s (can't find an IOPS spec for random read/write).

I had purchased a Dell Precision M6300 that has a Intel Core 2 Extreme. Now from what I read from there page about this system, it can run CAD and other graphic programs. Well, when I had got it form the person it had Linux Ubuntu on it. It ran fine until I wiped the drive and installed my iso of  Windows 7. It was REALLY SLOW. To the point I could not watch videos with VLC and it took forever to load Firefox.
I opened the task manager and it was running at 0.59GHz! This CPU should be at around 2.5GHz. So I disabled the bios options for Speed Step and it went up to 0.89GHz and no higher.
About a week has passed and I now have Windows 10 and it runs nice but still at 0.89GHz. I had done more searching and found ThrottleStop. Well now I'm running at 2.5GHz, but I need to run that program to have the CPU to be at where I want it.

TL;DR Is there an update for me to be able to access the CPU Multiplier in the BIOS? It's at Revision A15. I have another Dell which is a XPS M1730 and it has a setting in the BIOS for it.

A:How can I access the CPU Multiplier for the Intel Core 2 Extreme x9000

There is no BIOS level control over the CPU multiplier - it's auto-set by the system board.
Is the AC adapter recognized (F2 at powerup to check)?  If not, the system will run as if on battery all the time.
Similarly, disabling SpeedStep will force the system to run at low speed all the time - you want that setting to be enabled.

It disappeared only to reappear when checking for updates. The reinstall went breezily and to plan so this problem is unexpected. Its just set aside for the moment.

I finally decided to ditch my old Core 2 Duo 6400 Processor (~2.13 Ghz) and upgrade to a quad core. My issue is that my machine is about 4 or 5 years old now. My mobo is the Intel DP965LT and the my current cooling for my processor is the Freezer 7 Pro.

I purchased the Intel« Core?2 Extreme Processor QX6700 (Quad Core), I know I will need to update BIOS for the new CPU, but I believe that is worth it. While waiting for the new CPUs arrival I've been researching if my current cooling system will be enough. The Freezer 7 Pro is a small fan with a small heat sink (98mm I believe). All the aftermarket fans I've been looking at are 120mm and up. Will these be too big to fit in the holes already there for the push-in style heat sink & and fan slot already in my cpu?
I need to find a heat sink and fan that will fit in the slot where my Freezer 7 Pro has been. I really appreciate your help and suggestions.:approve:

p.s. My new CPU won't be coming with heat sink or fan, since I bought 2nd hand CPU. Also, I don't plan on overclocking....the 2.66Ghz out of a Quad core will already feel like a ferarri compared to my old 2.13 Dual

Current System Specs:

Operating System: Windows XP Home, SP3
Mother Board: Intel Model #DP965LT; Chipset: Intel P965/G965
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 ~2.13Ghz (this must go!)
Memory: 3 GB DDR2 RAM
Video Card: NVidea GeForce 9500 GT w/1 GB Memory
 

A:Cooling for (SL9UL) Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700

As long as the heatsink is made for a socket 775 CPU it will fit the mounting holes. IMO, if you are not planning to overclock, the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro is enough. If you decide to get a larger heatsink/fan anyway, most that are designed for a socket 775 should fit. Just make sure the larger heatsink/fan won't interfere with other components like side case fans or extra tall heatsinked RAM.

If this PC is for gaming, consider replacing the 9500GT.

Hi Nazbir and Welcome to SevenForums

I have two questions, 1. are you overclocking the CPU, if so bring it back to original spec. 2. are you overclocking the RAM, is it one stick of 2GB or 2 sticks of 1GB, do the part #'s match exactly. These things all make a difference when your trying to make it work. Hope this helps sort things out and if you need more help just ask.

Hi all , i recently just bout a new intel core 2extreme x6800 processor for 200 pounds i have heard that this processor was really good but i have a few doubts now after i bought it . first off, was 200 pound good for this processor? or should i have maybe went a bit higher and got the the quad extreme qx6700? opinions would be greatly appreciated because i want to run crysis really well and just need some opions on this processor cheers
 

A:Intel core 2 extreme x6800 wise choice?

I'm not sure about the 200 lb price tag for X6800, but a Q6600 will go for $325 and a regular E6850 for about $299Cd here in Canada. For sure you won't see any difference between an X6800 and the Q6700 when it comes to Crysis. I've read and seen the performance reviews and they all show such little diff. it's not worth talking about. To run Crysis very well means mid-high settings and one of those above cpus and a minimum 8800GT 512Mb to achieve (believe it or not!) 30FPS!!!!

Checking my systems' reliability in the Windows 7 'Reliability Monitor' I have noticed a daily 'critical event'. The error report is as follows:

Now it doesn't seem to affect anything I do, but seeing's as this was a clean install just last week, and it's the only problem apparent, I'd like to get it sorted. Plus it's labelled a 'critical event' which somewhat concerns me.

It gets 'reported' to windows via the 'check for solutions' button on a daily basis, but I don't expect that does anything really.

Has anyone seen this, know what this means or how I can fix it?
Thank you for reading.

A:Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, PerfTuneService.exe stops working

Haven't seen it, but the usual solution for errors of this sort is:
- download a fresh copy of the program from the Intel Download Center ( http://downloadcenter.intel.com )
- uninstall the current version from your system
- install the freshly downloaded copy
- monitor for further errors

Just FYI - if you are overclocking, you can expect odd/unexplained errors because you're pushing the hardware past it's intended usage.

I currently have intels integrated exteme graphics on my computer, i have purchased and currently being shipped a ATI radeon 9200 PCI, Will any problems arise from this, how should i fix any error, and is this possible to be done? Thank you -jarrett
 

A:Integrated Intel extreme graphic to ATI Radeon 9200 PCI Problems help needed

Normally this is a pretty basic upgrade.It has been my experience ,that it is wise to switch your VGA drivers to Standard windows VGA drvers first and reboot .Then Shut down ,install your card . When you start up again go direct to your CMOS setup and disable onboard graphics and then save exit.
Windows should recognize the card for driver install on that last restart.
Please read your installation guide in case there is any issues to be aware of , and if there is any procedure I did not mention.
Good luck

In Lenovo updates, says there's an update for Intel GTX graphics driver; does not update.  I have driver 20.19.55.4474 but Intel has a more recent version, but all I get is an error message to contact my manufacturer, but my warranty has expired.  Tried using device manager and telling it to update from Intel driver that I downloaded from their site but will not do it.  Any ideas?

Intel Core i3-2330M + Intel HD Graphics 3000 = Black Screen
Hi,

first of all, my words of deep and sincere appreciation and thanks for this website. I use it, though only sporadically, for many, many years and always got very professional and useful help here!

Today I am inquiring about a problem that seems to be quite common and wide-spread, based on my own Internet searches: the bad combination of the Intel Core i3-2330M processor and the Intel HD Graphics 3000. During normal operations, my system works with that. But when using render software (POV-Ray) or attempting to play games, then I am getting that famous Black Screen. The laptop still continues to work, but I cannot see anything anymore. Only a restart helps, unfortunately. My online search did not reveal any solution, and having downloaded the "Intel Driver Update Utility", nothing new can be downloaded it seems.

I am speaking out here today about my problem with the hope, that someone here know a functioning solution. I need my system in order to create renders, that is my work. I just recently upgraded my system with that better processor, and it kills me now.

System Specs

Compaq Presario CQ57 Refurbished
Intel i3-2330M Processor
Intel HD Graphics 3000 (Driver)
16 GB RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium
17 GB free HDD space on C:\

Edit: I fixed it! (I was causing the problem myself but uninstalling the chip in the first place when i should have been disabling it instead)


Ok... I looked for about an hour and decided i would have to make a new thread for my specific problem... so sorry if im making my first post in an odd place

I recently installed a NVIDIA GeForce 5500 FX PCI 256MB DDR video card
followed directions as best i could, and disabled the Intel integrated graphics... but my PC insists on REinstalling the intel integrated graphics controller upon restart... It left me alone for awhile and i could run Counter Strike : Condition Zero moderately well (low frames after playing for over an hour) but after allowing my computer to update itself (while using IE to dowload firefox for a reinstall, IE randomly decided my home page was going to be the microsoft site for the day) and since then no matter what i do the computer insists on trying to reinstall the intel integrated graphics thing...

so my question is, how do I make this stop? how do i keep the computer from giving me the dreaded "found new hardware" bubble when im using a FAR superior (REAL) video card already?

is there something i do in the BIOS (i hope not, i dont like messing around in there) or on the motherboard itself?

i have some basic info about my comp in my signature but im going to use "PolSystemInfo" to find all my PC specs and just copy paste them below, I just hope its enough info to help so... Read more

A:NVIDIA GeForce 5500 FX-vs-Intel Integrated Graphics... please make intel go away!

Hmm that didn't happen to me when I put mines in. Did you install the NVIDIA drivers? Try disabling the onboard in the device manager. That?s what I did. There doesn?t seem to be an option to turn it off in the bios (my bios) maybe there is for you however. It isn?t too complicated. Just simply look for onboard graphics or integrated graphics controller or w/e and select disable, but first try disabling it in the device manager. It should be listed under display adapters -> properties -> disable this device.

You should upgrade to DX9.0c...

Okay, I need help big time with this one.
Recently I have been having a very odd problem with any game I've installed on my computer, both from CDs and off the internet. Whenever I try to load one of these games my computer screen goes black then turns what I can only describe as pixalated/multicolored and has no resemblance to anything in the games whatsoever.
At first I figured it was a problem with my graphics card and my first thought was that I needed to download new drivers. I downloaded the most recent but it remains unchanged.
I am almost certain that this is a graphics card issue, but I do not want to go spend all that money on a new card if I don't have to. I have an eMachines T3092 that hasn't been upgraded or had anything done to it really at all, so we just have the geforce 4mx series graphics card that it came with. I have played all the games in the past, so this is a newly developed problem.
Any help would be appreciated, please and thank you!

Did you read the specs for the game BEFORE you got it?

It sounds like your system MAY not comply.

Hi,
I have Dell E7470 and I'm considering a motherboard replacement. The board has i7 CPU with Dell Part # VNKRJ . I wanted to ask If the new board with i7 CPU 6050 and Intel Iris graphics 540 (Dell part # YDW8F) will fit on my laptop ?

In addition, If I purchased an i5 board (Dell part # 3GMP2) , will I be able to replace the CPU with the one that I currently have on the old motherboard and get an i7 board ? I'm asking because the i5 board is cheaper than the i7 board.

Thank you

A:Dell E7470 - is it possible to get the new Intel 6050 CPU with Intel Iris graphics ?

While the boards should interchange, bear in mind:
Whatever board you buy has a CPU soldered to it - the CPUs cannot be replaced separately from the mainboard;  they are not removeable.
If the system is in warranty, replacing the mainboard voids the warranty.
