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 have recently bought an Ideapad 500s with an i7 processor and Intel HD Integrated Graphics 520. I have seen, through the use of some websites, that my dedicated video RAM is only 128mb. It appears that the way to increase this is through the use of Advanced Settings in BIOS, but this laptop does not appear to have that option in its' bios settings. Is there any way to either access the advanced BIOS settings or increase the dedicated video RAM by another method?

Hello. My girlfriend has a Lenovo y50 Touch with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860m GPU. It has perfomed well, however when I recently installed AutoCAD 2015 on it, I found out that it is actually using the Intel Integrated graphics card instead.
 
Rant:This is very disappointing because I advised her to purchase this one because of the dedicated graphics, and if it is not even going to use it then she could have saved a lot of money buying one without it.
 
Anyways, I have tried a few things to fix it, namely going to the Nvidia Control Panel and chaning the prefered graphics card to to the Nvidia. But I right-click on autocad and go to "Run with Graphics Processor >" it still shows the intel as the default, and even when I chose nvidia, the intel is still shown as the graphics processor from the autocad setting.

In short, I need help enabling the dedicated nvidia graphics card and using that insetad of the intel integrated. Any help is much appreciated! Please let me know what additional information would be needed.

A:Lenovo y50 Touch not using Dedicated Graphics. HELP!

See this AutoCad knowledgebase. Hopefully you can disable the intel card in BIOS as the article states.
 
Edit: This could lead to trouble I will post the link shortly. Here it is.

Hello dear community, recently I bought myself a Lenovo ideapad 305. Mainly for office purposes, however the fact that it has a Nvidia 820m as a secondary graphics card is a nice feature, since I like to play games from time to time. Since my games aren't the most demanding either, they work just fine as long as I use the 820m on it. They do lag considerably using the Intel Graphics Card. So, the thing is, I am considering whether to upgrade to Windows 10, and one central question is: Will the switchable graphics work? You know, my parents taught me to "ALWAYS have the latest drivers on your computer!" so earlier today I went ahead and downloaded the latest driver for the 820m from the nvidia website. Unfortunately, my parents hadn't told me that that's not how it works with hybrid graphic pcs. Apparently if you have two graphics card in one pc only the drivers from the manufacturer will work. That explains why my game suddenly started lagging after the driver update (even THOUGH I had it set to use the nvidia card on the nvidia control panel). I went back to the original driver via the onekey recovery partition now, and it works fine just like before. HOWEVER that means I would need a driver directly from Lenovo that makes this switchable thing work under Windows 10. Is there? If so, does it work? Any experiences? I need to decide this rather quickly, what with work and also the free upgrade period ending rather soon. Thanks a lot in advance!Gre... Read more

Hi!
I am Techsavy8 from India.

Now I would like to know the basic difference in terms of performance for an onboard graphics card and a dedicated graphics card for a Laptop.

What could be a major difference?
Also, for Onboard graphics, it is said on all the branded website that the size of it is upto 384MB shared.

So, say for instance, if I go for a dedicated graphics card for a new laptop which I am planning to purchase and the size of this dedicated graphic card is 256MB or 128MB and Onboard graphic card on the other hand provides 384 MB shared memory, therefore the question is that how could that external graphics card sizing 256 MB deliver better performance as compared to Onbard graphics which sizes 384 MB shared?

Also, how are the new laptops launched by HP in India in terms of performance, mobility & stability?
The Laptop which I am looking for falls under 6700 series and is a business series laptop.
Waiting eagerly for a reply...

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

Hello dipdap mate personally I prefer NVidia as I had no end of problems and issues with AMD stuff.

Now I am of the opinion that a plug in GPU is better than on board stuff which is usually ok these days for day to day stuff. Now this brings me to what do you intend to do graphically with your machine??

As for bottle necking unless I have it terribly wrong plugging in a card disconnects the motherboard graphics so in effect it would be in theory impossible to run both at once.

It also depends on your budget but generally speaking out where I am this would cost you $179 GeForce GTX 750 Ti which is reasonably good for general use and light gaming to $429 for this ASUS GeForce GTX 970 Turbo 4GB - I like Asus stuff as you may have guessed and I use the Asus GTX 650Ti in both my desktops.

Hi Adomce123, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Have you tried running dx diag with a high graphic application software running alongside?
 
The automatic switch from Intel to NVIDIA would happen when there is demand for it thus you were allowed to re install NVIDIA drivers and use the NVIDIA control setting since it was available in your system. This can also be checked in your device manager as well as lenovo diagnostics to confirm if the NVIDIA device if available.
 
Try going in the BIOS and verify options under Configuration Menu for graphic device to run on Discrete or UMA only as option. F10 to save setting before exit.
 
Update us how it goes.

You'd have to look around in the Nvidia Control Panel for that one. But your browser should be using your dedicated GPU for x264 decoding if you have hardware acceleration enabled.

My GPU is broken, I'm going from a 8500GT to a GTX260, and therefore the crappy winpower PSU in my computer isn't going to cut it. I'm aware that a good solid 600w PSU should do the job, but quite frankly I'm not paying 50 for a PSU. No way.

Is there any good reason I can't use something like this:
http://www.hardwarehounds.com/techspotlight/powerexpress.shtml

Seems logical because it's future proof etc etc. So it's only 20ish.

Also, another thing. Cheap PSUs etc are overrated by their manufacturers, but if you took say a 700w cheap PSU and made that dedicated for the GPU, the GPU is never going to take more than 200w anyway (less than what my computer is using with the 700w winpower in my machine). Is there a reason I can't just buy a cheap one and make that dedicated for graphics? How can it break/explode if it works fine on my 300w+ computer and I swap it into a 200w card?
 

A:Dedicated PSU for graphics

You mean besides that your Winpower could fry your entire system and cost you far more than $50?

Never used that Thermal take, but my main question is where would you put it? Do you keep your system on a test bench or in a case, as there are no mounting places for that in a typical case.

How much is that dedicated PSU? I would just buy a decent regular PSU and save yourself time, energy and a fried PC.
