Cannot get K330B to use a dedicated graphics card and NOT the IGD

Q: Cannot get K330B to use a dedicated graphics card and NOT the IGD

Just like the topic says. I have an older K330B that I want to use for some gaming. I have added a newer Radeon video card and upgraded the PSU to support the new card. With the PSU connected to the video card, the system power up at boot (fans, etc), but the display never gets a signal.With the PSU disconnected from the video card, the system boots up fine. In the BIOS (DPKT21A 08.08.2011) there does NOT seem to be a choice for using PCI v. IGD. Any help would be appreciated.

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.

I have an old K330B 7747 (i3) with 8gb RAM running Win7. I would like to use the Adobe CC Lightroom/Photoshop monthly deal for photographers, but I only have the onboard IntelHD graphics. I will only be editing photos, no gaming. The only graphics cards recommended for this system are:NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ GTX 460NVIDIA GeForce GT 440ATI? Radeon? HD 5750 However, to use Lightroom, Adobe recommends 1gb VRAM and an OpenGL 3.3 and DirectX 10-capable video adapter. (Is that only for GPU acceleration?) The graphics cards recommended by Adobe start with NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M and AMD Radeon HD 8470. I currently run Photoshop CS3 (with no problems) and Lightroom 3.6, but Lightroom runs slowly at times. I am on disability and have very limited funds. Thanks!!

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...

I'm not that techy but heres what I have: -Lenovo Z50-75-8GB Ram-AMD Radeon r7 m260dx graphics (one integrated power saving graphics and one high performance dedicated graphics card)-Windows 10 No matter what I've tried so far I cannot get the high performance graphics card to run X-Plane. Therefore it is using the power saving integrated one which means I can barely play the game on its minimum graphics settings and I know it should be able to do a lot better! I've been into the AMD control centre and set the game to run on the 'high performance gpu' yet when I select the power application monitor it shows that its never the high performance dedicated gpu being used, just the intigrated one! Any ideas to help me get this working anyone?

Hello everyone. I own the Lenovo Z50-75 and I would like to know if it's possible to use only the dedicated graphics card for gaming on this laptop. First of all, my system specs are:
 
CPU: AMD FX-7500 @2.1GHz
RAM: 6GB (5GB in use)
GPU: Radeon R7 (integrated; shares 1GB with RAM), Radeon R7 M260DX (dedicated with 2GB VRAM)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
I know this laptop comes with the AMD's "Dual Graphics" feature. The problem is that most games don't work well with this setting (I had problems in many games with Dual Graphics enabled, such as screen flickering). Therefore I would like to use only the dedicated card, but no matter what I try, it seems impossible to get it working seperately from the integrated card.
 
I monitor the GPU load using GPU-Z, and the only way I could get the dedicated graphics card to show activity was when I enabled dual graphics with "AFR Friendly mode". Without Dual Graphics, it never turns on! But it is supposed to turn on when I set the power plan on "High performance", right?
 
What I've tried so far: 
 
1. Disabled Dual Graphics and set every possible setting on High Performance (under power plan and CCC). The integrated card was used instead of the dedicated.
 
2. Enabled Dual Graphics, but set the game profile (in CCC) not to use Dual Graphics. No luck.
 
3. Plugged the laptop on an external HDMI monitor to see if the dedicated graphics card is enabled. Didn't... Read more

A:How to use the dedicated graphics card on Z50-75

Your point 1 should work for using the dedicated GPU.
From what I read, "Dual Graphics" from AMD is not a good working feature at the moment. You should do Point 1 (you mentioned).
 
Also, switch to Windows 8.1
Apply GPU updates.
Apply BIOS updates (if any).
Play a game and make sure you connected to AC power.
 
Try older AMD drivers, if the latest one gives problems.

There is no such processor as a AMD Ryzen 5 220G, so I'm going to assume you actually have a AMD Ryzen 3 2200G processor.

If your computer has a GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB, it definitely has a dedicated graphic card.

Hi guys and girls,

I've been having a little trouble lately with my dedicated graphics card. My integrated is working fine, but my dedicated graphics card isn't even being detected (via device manager) let alone working.

I opened my case up and saw that on startup my fan budges a little bit as if it has life, but then fails to fully fire up. Yesterday i reseated it, cleaned it and the motherboard slot with some compressed air, swapped pcie cables and power cycled ect, and it worked like a charm, running everything I wanted it to. But the morning after it reverted back to its undetectable, idle state. a I retried everything that I did before, nothing happened.

So now I come to you, could I get some help please?

my graphics card is AMD HD Radeon 7800

Thankyou so much in advance!

Hello.I've had this issue for about a year now, but since it was never really that important, i just let it go. BUt now, I would really need a fix. Basically what happened is that I had an issue with my cooling fan, it was ful of dust. So i had it cleaned out by a company, but when i got my laptop back, my dedicated amd graphics no longer worked. But not only that, it was literally gone from every scan. Cant find it under device manager, not in the dxdiag, not anywhere. SO my guess is that it must have been somehow disconnected. My question is, how can i reconnect it. Where on the motherboard do i find the connection between the graphics card and the motherboard. I dont know if these 2 are connected, but my cd/dvd rom also no longer works.

So this is an issue that I've had for about a year or so, but it kinda wasn't important to me that much until now.  Basically what happened: My fan was getting really loud and my laptop would overheat, nothing would help, not even vacuuming it. So i decided to open my laptop, but for some reason, I couldn't get the entire cover off and I ended up not cleaning the fan, so I decided to give it to a company to clean it for me. They did a great job, but when I got the laptop back, one of the graphics cards wasnt working, the dedicated radeon one. Not working means it wouldnt show up anywere, as if it wasnt even in the laptop, i couldnt find it in device manager or anything, so my guess is, its actually disconnected. Due to a number of reasons I could not get back to the company to make them fix what they did. but since I didnt really need the graphics card, I didnt mind. That was until now. Now, since I want to do some video editing, a bit more hardcore gaming etc. I would realy need the graphics card, so I decided to open my laptop and I managed to find a video on how to do it, and I did it. When i got in, I could clean the fan, but I simply dont know where the graphics card is so i could reconnect it. I've been searching all around trying to find it, but i cant. Can somebody please tell me how its supposed to look like, where I can find it and how i can reconnect it.  Thanks a lot.

Hi Alexandr,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to inform you that the AMD GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) will automatically if the application that is running requires High-End graphics and cannot and manually switched in the computer; even if the Intel driver is disabled or Un-Installed the computer will automatically download using ?Windows Update? and revert back to same stage. I suggest you to use the graphics and the other features as provided by the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
 
Do post us back for further queries.

Is the Dedicated Video Memory the value of the graphics card itself?? 32MB??

Please give me a constant answer.....

Thanks.
 

A:Help with my Graphics card and Dedicated Video Memory,please!

Dedicated is just what it sounds like. I think of it as a "minimum," amount of video memory. The shared memory is basically what the rest of your unused pc ram will let you use.

A:Dedicated system memory for graphics card as zero?

Dedicated system memory is what the CARD gives to the PC. So if you have an app taking most of your ram, the card will give it its own DEDICATED system memory. But your pc has dedicated GRAPHICS that is for aero and gaming. So if you have 1GB= 1024 MB and 64MB DEDICATED SYSTEM MEMORY, your COMPUTER can use 1088MB TOTAL for APPS.

Hello.

I am thinking of upgrading my old Dell Inspiron 620s after several years in order to run some of the latest games at high graphics settings and better performance. That said, while I know my way around technology and software, I'm still pretty much a novice when it comes to hardware.

I understand that if I want any sort of decent graphics card I'll need to check my motherboard for a PCI Express X16 slot. Based on the model of my computer, is there a way to know if I have one, or do I need to take off the back and check myself?
Assuming I do have such a slot, what are the steps I need to go through to install a new card? I believe my computer currently runs on integrated graphics, so are there any issues with switching over there?
If I don't have a PCI Express X16 slot, then what are my options? Would I need to buy a completely new computer? Replace the entire motherboard? Or is there a "hopefully" much easier solution?
I would be grateful for any and all advice that is directed my way.

A:Installing dedicated graphics card questions

The 620S has no room for a card that will run most games.
GT 610 Low profile card is the only option.

I probably wouldn't bother, does the motherboard have an integrated graphics card? Most motherboards do - and that will easily be sufficient enough for that sort of thing.

Hi all,
I recently ordered a Dell Inspiron 5576 and it arrived on Friday.
I fired up one of my games and noticed the performance was not very good. This was surprising to me since the unit was supposed to include an AMD R7 M445 graphics card - hardly top of the line, but I expected it to perform at least as well as the graphics card in my 5-year-old laptop.
I looked at my system information and it lists Intel HD 620 as the graphics adapter. However, if I check against the purchase order and the system configuration on the support website they both clearly indicate that it's supposed to have the AMD graphics card.
I've checked the device manager, used DXDiag, GPU-Z, checked the BIOS, updated the BIOS and chipset drivers, and tried installing the driver for the AMD card and nothing has worked to indicate that this computer has the graphics card it's supposed to have.
I really don't want to have to return the laptop, so I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions that I can investigate before having to send it in for a replacement.

I got a Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 Laptop, with all the drivers up-to-date (including beta drivers).

http://support.lenovo.com/ro/en/prod...Product%20Info

The laptop features an Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 video card and a NVidia GeForce 840M.

The trick is that everytime I'm playing a game that is a bit older (not recognized by NVidia GeForce Experience, it runs with the Integrated Graphics card). And yes, I've tried to set to run globally with the dedicated card.

Hello, I had dell inspiron 15 5558 8gb ram 1tb HDD core i7 5500u ...so the my question is that will my laptop  supports nvidia geforce 945m or nvidia gtx 950m dedicated graphics card? If I replace it with my current nvidia geforce 920m dedicated graphics card???? Please reply fast!

A:Dell 5558 i7 8gb ram dedicated graphics card support

HRISHI7276,
Thank you for posting, I wish that i have better news for you. The 5558 is similar to a good many Dell notebooks in which the discreet GPU is soldered on the system board. Unfortunately there are no means to upgrade the GPU.

Hi there,

I'm new to this site. I was hoping I could get someone's opinion.

I plugged a dvi cable into on board graphics and the screen had lines going horizontally. I have a picture but don't know how to add one onto here?

Anyway, I restarted several times and the drivers are up to date.

I put back into graphics card and it was fine... Up until a few days ago it started doing it on there too.

The monitor is an Asus 24" and set to 1920 - 1080.

I have a zoostorm desktop pc with the followong specifications.

Intel i5 3330 3ghz
Windows 8.1
16 gb ram
Mobo is gigabyte h61
Nvidia Gt 640 (upgrading soon)
Psu cool master 500w.

I have not had the chance to see if it happens on the TV too as it is intermittent and hard to fully troubleshoot.

Also, I am under warranty until July and have the PC being picked up soon for Mobo replacement. But does it really sound like a Mobo problem to you guys or should I be looking else where too.

The monitor is brand new, and has been fine until I tested the on board graphics.

Thank you in advance =]
 

A:Horizontal lines on screen via on board or dedicated graphics card.

My first thought would be the Power Supply. Can you post the exact Motherboard Model Number? If nothing else the Model Number is Silk Screened on the motherboard.

Also some other checks you could do is using a different Video Cable or a different monitor to see if the problem is one of those items.

I bought a lenovo z50-75 laptop a  few months ago, but it spent more in service then my home. It was recent 2 times because it was said that the laptop has no problem. I sent the laptop in to service because the dedicated graphics card doesn't work. I have tried all the sollutions that were mentioned in the forum but non of them worked. I have tried the win7ultimate ,8.1, and 10 (all licensed) and a lots of AMD driver. All of the settings were in high performance in AMD options, and the dual graphics was ON. But all game (dota2,lol, CSGO) run in low perfomance because the dedicated card doesen't working. 
 
Mod's Edit: Updated model number in Subject line.

Hi Everyone, Hello Lenovo, I bought this laptop recently, and I was satisfied so far until i decided to play a game. I bought this one because it has a discrete graphics for a lightweight gaming. But after about 10 mins of playing any kind of 3D game (Dota, CSGO, CoH, even Telltale games) fps drops start to occur - graphics settings in the game doesnt matter (low vs high - hd vs fhd .. still the same shuttering, fps droping). After some googling and testing via gpuz i discovered that there is thermal cap at 61-62°C and if the card reaches this temp, it will start downclocking - After 10 mins of playing, GPU clocked itself at somewhere around 650Mhz (default clocks are around 950MHz), reason of throttle: thermal - via gpuZ. I tried using a cooling pad, but it doesnt seem to help much. Via Nvidia Inspector: there is a thermal limit set to 61C, but u cannot modify this setting, then in the other two states of a card (i think those are the states, that are triggered by the thermal limit) there are clocks set to 405MHz - neither these are modifiable, so i think, that after some more gpu usage, it would continue dropping to 405MHz.   I have tried:I have installed the newest nvidia drivers.There is no problem with power management settings (been set to max via windows power plan manager).I have also tried every power management settings in nvidia control panel (max power, adaptive etc,) - no positive results. I dont even think i got a defecti...

Hello, I have a brand new Inspiron 15 7559 that is having some issues. First and foremost the keyboard is useless after the computer goes to sleep. This just started a few days ago, about a month after receiving it. The screen comes back on after opening the lid and the touch pad works fine. But no buttons on the keyboard produce any response. The keyboard becomes backlit like normal but does not produce anything on the screen when I try to put in my password/pin. I can click on the Ease of Access button and get the on screen keyboard to appear. This does work and allows me to input my pin. But that's no way for my laptop to run. And a laptop without a keyboard is pretty useless. My second problem is that my computer no longer sees my Nvidia dedicated graphics card. I only mention this here because I am not sure that the 2 issues are unrelated. I noticed a few days ago that the Nvidia icon was not in my system tray ( I think that's what it's called) like it normally is. So I opened it manually and it told me that it could not find a driver for this computer. That is odd because just the previous day I had been looking in the program and all was fine. So I followed the link to get a driver. I followed all the instructions on the Nvidia site and downloaded the driver for the card my computer came with. But when installing it a window popped up saying that no hardware could be found on my computer for that driver. Not sure why it doesn't see it.

Hello All, I have a lenovo ideacentre k330b, comes with a Intel Core i7 2600 (3.40GHz). I recently purchased a MSI R9 380 4g graphic card and a Corsair 750 PSU. Once i connected the GPU to the Power supply and plugged my VGA to the onboard motherboard nothing happened, monitor stayed black, i  got curious and plugged my iphone usb and connected my phone and it wasn't providing any power at all from the motherboard (obviously i tried plugging my VGA or HDMI to the new GPU , but nothing,same black screen). So i shut down the computer, unplugged the the GUP from the Power Supply and my onboard motherboard ports  started to work again.   I try checking the Bios to set up the GUP as primary, doesn't give you that option. Could it be a defective GUP? Also I'll like to upgrade my motherboard if the motherboard is the issue, is it possible to use that processor on another motherboard which may not be a Lenovo motherboard? Thanks.
