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.)

First of all:
I don't know too much about computers, so use easy language please.

I have sent in my computer to get repaired and got it back yestersay. Since then i've been trying to get it to work properly again.
I can't play any of the games I used to play before I sent it in to get repaired (for example, Battlefield 3). I can start dota2 but it looks pretty messed up. I can run minecraft though ^^


Anyway, after a lot of questions asked, trying out different stuff and after getting further and further to the end of this problem I've come to this:

My computer shows me that I have an nvidia geforce 7025 nforce 630a graphic card.
Although it says in the computer description that it SHOULD have a AMD HD 6870 1GB GDDR 5.
My screen isn't plugged in the graphic card, since it doesn't recieve anything from there. It is plugged directly to the motherboard.
So, from what I understand the nvidia card is the integrated graphic card or am I totally wrong?

Anyway, the device manager can only find the nvidia card and I cannot run any game smoothly on this computer.
Before I realized this possibility I've tried to download newer drivers for the nvidia card, but it didn't help.

Please help me to get my ADM HD 6870 1GB GDDR 5 to run!
I'm trying to google for solutions, but I'll give this site a shot.
Thanks!

A:Graphic card isn't found. Only finds my integrated graphic card. Help!

first check they havent stolen you GPU
then check that the 4/8pin pci power supply is plugged into the top left of the motherboard.
then check the gpu has power cable(s) plugged in.

A:video card/graphic card reboot problem

boynamedanurag Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about booting and video card problems and wanted to help. So, if I understand what you're saying, you reinstalled Win7 and the PC boots OK, right? But when you then install a video driver and reboot, it does not boot, right? My guess is that you have one of the old DV6 laptops that has two video chipsets, something called Switchable Graphics.  And the problem with that is that only the HP OEM video drivers will work on that laptop.  IF you install other ones, such as the ones you get from AMD or Nvidia, they will NOT work -- which sounds like what is happening to you. What DOES work is restoring your PC using HP Recovery Media because that will contain the HP OEM drivers.  Media. This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version.

Unless the laptop has onboard graphics, there is no reason why the card can't be changed.

A:What is the diffret in a video card / graphic card?

A video card and a graphic(s) card are the same thing. What you have now is an integrated graphics card. Integrated graphics cards have terrible performance. Now, we need to know whether your motherboard has a PCI-E or AGP slot. Download CPU-Z , take screenshots of the tabs called "CPU" and "Mainboard" and post them here.

They should look something like this (the information and logo will be different):

Are these the same thing? I have an old Dell (as you can see), but I like it. I was told that I could improve its performance by adding a video card. When I look them up, I see pictures of odd-looking devices that in no way resemble a "card." I can only find 2 that will work with this computer. Does that seem right?

A:Video card vs graphic card?

"Video Card" and "Graphics Card" are the same thing.

There are 4 different versions of the 745. A "minitower", a desktop, a Small Form Factor and an ultra small form factor. Which one do you have? It makes a difference for a video (graphics) card.

The minitower will take a PCIe type video card. With the small power supply that can limit you (if this is the model you have). The others versions are even further restrictive as they will require "low profile" type cards.

Im about to buy new graphic card and i decided to buy VGA ASUS ATI HD7770 it says it fits to slot PCI express 3.0 and my mobo is intel DQ67SW i looked on the mobo and it looks like it fits? im rly not sure.This mobo has integrated graphic card already. Can somebody give me a hand with this? and if it fits should i plug my monitor to mobo or graphic card?
 

A:New graphic card

You have one PCIe 2.0 x 16 expansion slot on your Intel DQ67SW.

The AMD Radeon™ HD 7770 GHz Edition is designed to use PCIe 3.0, though PCIe 3.0 is backwards-compatible with PCIe 2.0.

PCIe 3.0 has a theoretical throughput of 15.75 GB/s while PCIe 2.0 has a theoretical throughput of 8 GB/s. Obviously you won't be able to attain the same speed, but the card will work.

---------------------------------------------------------------

You would plug the monitor into this graphics card, not the integrated graphics chip on the motherboard.

Hi i built my own desktop and i got all the required things for sli but it didnt work. My two graphics cards are about 3 years apart and i was wondering if the year mattered for sli. Also one graphics card is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 and the other is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 performance edition and i was wondering if one being the performance edition would cause any problems.
 

A:graphic card sli

No, that's fine, they just need to be the same base GPU so as long as both are GTX 660's then that should be fine.

Does your motherboard support SLI? Did you enable SLI in the BIOS? Did you enable SLI in the NVidia Control Panel? Do you have a power supply capable of running two GTX 660's in SLI?

It would be immensely usfeul if you posted the complete and exact specs of all your computer hardware including the exact model of your power supply, the motherboard revision and BIOS version, and the nVidia driver version.

Hello al52 and welcome,
Try this: Go to add/remove programs, and completely uninstall CCC and all ATI drivers.
Then go to device manager and right click on your display adapter/properties/driver details and make sure it is uninstalled.

Then try to reinstall the latest ATI Catalyst 9.12 Display Driver.
Also check to see that your monitor driver is installed and up to date. If the monitor is out of diplay range ( unable to display 1280x1024)it wil freeze.
See if that helps, and post the results. If not, we'll try another route.

I will tryto be as short and accurate as possible but basically a then new PC and cardwere recommended to us but when the new card was fitted it failed to work, wewere told after that, the new card was to powerful for the motherboard so wefitted a different card, which worked but as any PC gamer will know this is nownot up to what is needed for today?s games.

My son isnow desperate to upgrade his card once again but we don?t want to be in thesame situation again.

His currentPC is as follows,

DellInspiron.660 (bought in 2012)

i5-3330 CPU3.00 GHZ

Windows 8.1

We upgradedthe PSU to a XFX 650W

The cardthat he had bought but failed to work was a VTX3D BlackEdition Radeon HD 7870 (Tahiti LE) OC 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card [VX78702GBD5-2DHV3E]

The card that he currently has is Radeon 6870

The card that he would like to fit into his PC is EVGAGTX 970 SSC

Can anyone see any problems that we may come up againstfitting the EVGA card.

Regards Swamps

A:Graphic Card Help Please

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
The evga card requires a 500watt power supply
If you have a 750 you should be fine like most gpu's you need some over head to power the rest of the machine/ monitor/...

So if you look at the power supply/ psu it will have a tag on it which will state what wattage it is
Post that info you might have to upgrade it as well to get a better gpu/ graphic's card to work properly

That is the first time I've heard that a card is too powerful for the mother board
Usually it would be too powerful for the psu.


For the record you're better off with a NVidia card than a AMD anyway
Which the AMD also requires a 500watt psu as well but the evga card will perform better

So yes you'll need to look into modular power supplies I would look at evga psu's in the above stated 750-1000w range and a P2

I have a intel hd graphics card which is 1GB yet I am not able to play gta 4 episodes properly.

A:Graphic card

Hi,

To run GTA 4 properly you need at least a strong dual-core processor and a discrete dedicated graphics card. Intel Integrated graphics cards are not really designd to run these heavy graphics games.

However, if you post your pc specifications (Processor, RAM, Graphics Card...) and if you dercribe your problem with details, i can try to help you to solve your issue.

Hi

I need a graphics card for my system, but i am not sure what will be compactable for my system.

Heres my system spec

Asrock P4VM890 Motherboard
550Watt Enermax PSU
Pent 4 3.2 Prescott CPU
1 GB Ram

Currently have onboard video, which is rubbish for gaming, i dont have lot of money so i was thinking about something like Asus ATI Radeon X1050 or the Asus ATI Radeon X1550 but i dont want to waste money and find out that they wont work, as i have already bought one and its not working and causes the system to not boot up its was a Connect 3D ATI Radeon X300

Thanks for any help!

A:Need a graphic card

Decent board with Socket 478, DirectX 7 integrated VIA graphics, and a PCI-Express slot.
And PCI Express video card should work... but drivers can be a problem.
You have to disable the video graphics in the device manager, sometimes, when you install a new video graphics card. Then install new drivers using the disc that came with the card, or by downloading new drivers from the video graphics card manufacturer.

Hi i want to upgrade my gtx 260 graphic card to a bigger one is that possible ? and if what card would you recomend ?

A:graphic card

From: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02612749your desktop computer has a 460 Watt power-supply.This is enough power to drive almost every graphics card. The graphics card currently installed has a PCI Express x16 interface, which is required by most "high-performance" video-cards. So, you seem to have complete freedom to change the graphics card. But, check the power-connectors on your power-supply.Do you have a "spare" 4-wire or 6-wire or 8-wire lead that is not currently being used (or is currently connected to your current graphics card) ? Some graphics-card require additional power, and have a socket for one of: 4-wire / 6-wire / 8-wire power. So, make sure that your power-supply can supply this "extra" power to the new graphics card that you purchase.
