Hi,

Any advice on this?

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 or Graphic card issue

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.)

A: Windows 10 or Graphic card issue

If you can get into Device Manager try updating your driver. If no driver is available try rolling back or using the generic driver and see if your problem goes away.

Hello,

Few days before New Year i bought new "fancy" and "strong" computer.
Configuration:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE PP55-UD3P
Processor: Intel i5-750
Graphic card: GIGABYTE ATI RADEON 5870 1GB DDR5
Memory: Kingston 2x2GB DDR3 1600MHz (1333MHz is default i didnt overcloacked)
Hard disk: 1TB Samsung 7200rpm 32MB cash
Monitor: SONY LCD TV 32" Bravia

I installed windows 7 x64... and my nightmare begins.

First I got some BSODs during installation of drivers that came in card package. I am not sure if it was graphic card or motherbord drivers. I downloaded and installed newest 9.12 Catalist from ATI site, drivers for 5800 serie for windows 7 x64.

Then I proudly installed DIRT 2 that came with ATI RADEON 5870. I got couple of crashes during DIRT intro as many other ati card owners complaint about on forums. I think I eliminated that problem when i set GPU and memory frenquency to be 850MHz and 1200MHz for all windows energy saving states (there are 3 of those in ati profile file). Before I did that I had quite a few graphic card crashes with stripes on screen and had to hard reset the computer (problem that is also well known to ati card users according to forums).

And finally when i thought i had solved all issues (no crashes for a few days) i got two BSODs in last three days. I leave computer to download something and after few hours ... crash.
I have plugged this computer and my work laptop both to SONY TV (PC is connected via HDMI cable and lapt... Read more

A:BSODs in Windows 7 x64. Graphic card or memory issue?

The debugger can't access symbols for your copy of Windows 7.
Please let us know where you got your copy of Win7 from.
If it was on a disk, what did the disk say?

There's really nothing that's identified by the BSOD's.

First, please uninstall your copy of Acronis True Image - it's an older version that may have some issues with Win7 (even if it's listed as "compatible"). You can reinstall it after we've finished troubleshooting.

Please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions to see if it can get us any extra information:





Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"

first, i'm apologizing for being a computer idiot, but I've never actually messed with / installed a sound card myself. I had it installed by someone who knew what he was doing. :\

okay, so:
i just did a clean install of Windows 7.
a few months ago, i had a new graphics card installed to allow me to play The Sims 3. everything worked fine for months, just exactly like it is now, until I installed Windows 7.

Now, in my device manager, I show two graphics cards:
- Radeon X1300/X1550 Series (Microsoft Corporation WDDM)
- Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

Both show up as fully updated with working drivers, and claim to be working properly, but in my display settings, it shows up as "Generic PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter." I've disabled the VGA Graphics adapter in Device Manager, but when I restart the computer, it says "Default Monitor on," with no adapter listed.

Even though I always hooked my monitor into the motherboard, I tried plugging it directly into the graphics card, but the monitor shows nothing except for the "Monitor is working, test red, test blue, etc."

I also tried to enter BIOS and disable my onboard video card; but I didn't see an option to do that (I have Phoenix BIOS on an Emachine T2615, btw).

I actually uninstalled the OnBoard video through device manager, but it automatically installed when I restarted my computer.

I would just wait and take it to the guy who installed it (i won't go to best buy or an... Read more

Hello TSG.

First off, I think I should start by saying my PC specs:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2, .Net Framework 1.1 and 2.0 (about to reboot and install the rest), 32 bit
Processor: AMD Sempron, 2600+, 1.6GB GHZ
RAM: 512mb + 1GB tablet
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon x550, 256MB (I know, old)
Hard Drives: C: Total - 30GB, Free - 8GB; D: Total - 45GB, Free - 44GB;
I've been having some trouble since last friday.

I thought of adding all what I did, but it'd be long and unnecesesary. I'll just post what I did after formating.
I was getting some blue screens saying that ati2dvag.dll was stanked on a infinite loop. After a lot of unsuccessful fixes, I formatted my Hard Drives (which explains why I have so much free space).

Now after I installed the ATI latest driver, my computer keeps crashing. It doesn't crash on secure mode though. I don't see any blue screen now though, the computer just freezes, screen goes black for a second, and when the image comes back, the graphic card is not working right anymore (I know this because the image refreshes much slower). Or it just freezes permanently.

I tried older display drivers, like 8.1 and 9.1, HECK, even 5.2. None of them made a difference.

I'm so tired... I've spent hours and hours on this... I also lost everything I had when I formatted...

Please, help me...

EDIT: I don't know if this is in the right section or not o.o
If not, please excuse me.
 

A:ATI Graphic Card issue.

Is the graphics card a Sapphire ATI radeon x550 if so did you go to the Sapphire site to get the drivers? Or did you get those drivers from AMD/ATI site? If you went to AMD/ATI then you will have different drivers as Sapphire have their own drivers for their graphics card

A:ATI Graphic Card issue.

Welcome to TSF.

Sorry, but I have to ask this . . . . Why are you still running WinXP SP1 (or even SP2 as it indicates under your username)?? If this PC is connected to the internet, you subjecting it to a lot of vulnerabilities. You really should install SP3.

You can download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...displaylang=en

Both the download and the install will take a chunk of time, but it'll be worth it in the long run. Also, I'd strongly suggest leaving your PC running overnight for a couple of nights so that it picks up all of the updates released since SP3.

Anyother suggestion: Exhaust all least destructive troubleshooting methods before doing something such as formatting your HDD. Although that is occasionally necessary, it should be a last resort.

It could very well be that the graphic card is going bad. The only way to tell for sure would be to install it in another PC and see if you have the same problems. You can get a similar card on eBay pretty cheap or you can upgrade.

Since you've gone as far as formatting your HDD, reinstalling the OS, drivers, etc., I'd say that you have pretty well knocked out any chance of it being a software issue.

The ATI Radeon x1650PRO does not have a high power requirement so it is unlikely to be related the PSU. There are two possible problems,

the first to look at is did you install the card correctly?

the second is, do you have the correct drivers for the card. ie 64bit

Hello. Recently I bought Gigabyte HD 4650 1gb agp 8x card. I unistalled drivers for my old card, removed the old card, put this new card, and plugged in everything. I turned on my pc, installed drivers and directx from cd, and restarted. But i then i noticed some problems.
First, Aero looks weird(picture: http://oi56.tinypic.com/2qu87xz.jpg), so i turned it off. Second, in game scenes and game itself works perfectly, but intros, and other prerendered scenes are really slow and laggy(1 fps!).
Third, when i start playing some game, it lags a bit but after a few seconds it stops and works perfect.
Fourth, some games don't show graphics correctly. Examples:
Assassins creed 2(first scene): http://i51.tinypic.com/16c9kzp.png
NFS Carbon(if i set visual treatment on high, otherwise it works normally): http://i53.tinypic.com/21e5kb7.pn
Also, I noticed that Catalyst Control Center doesn't show SmartGart and VPU recover tab, and I think they should be there.
I installed new drivers, installed newer version of directx, didn't helped. I removed drivers, same thing, i played with some options in Catalyst and ingame options, nothing. I changed some compatibilty stuff in windows, same thing. Please help, I really don't understand why it doesn't works properly. I meet all the requirements for this card, and this problems really frustrates me. Thanks in advance

Hi, welcome to the forums

Firstly, when you say "new drivers" are you referring to the one's provided on the install CD/DVD? If not then download the latest and see if that helps.

Secondly, for uninstalling drivers I'd recommend using Driver Sweeper to completely eradicate any trace of the previous driver and see if that helps.

I have a machine by Tiny.com, running win 98se, 500mhz celeron, intel on baord graphics and audio.

I purchased a prophet 3d 4000xt 64mb pci graphics card and followed installation procedure and install card success fully and have been using it with no problems.

3 weeks ago I got given a 700mhz P3 prosessor and replaced it with my tied celeron, and the machine works a dream (considering it's spec!!) again no issues.

I then decided to upgrade my OS to Win XP (Pro). I booted Win98 and started to upgrade, everything started fine until the computer had to rest.

After searching for the MBR the cumputer would 'Hang' on a black screen with a white flashing cusor in the top left corner.

It took me ages to figure out that it was my graphics card that was the problem and after uninstalling it the system booted with no probs and completed the upgrade.

So no I start the install process of card and the same black screen on start up appears.

I've downloaded up to date drivers for XP from Hurcules website but nothing seems to be working.

Hi guys,

I need your help, there is something wrong with my brother's graphic card. When he turn the computer on, he is getting some funny colors of the text in the bios screen and there is flickering on the screen.

Here is the screenshot:




I don't have a problem with my own graphic card on my computer as it is perfect clear on the screen, but my brother is getting flicking and some funny colors on the screen that you could not read the words on the screen. When I put mine graphic card on his computer, everything works fine as there is no flicks or funny colors but if I put his graphic card on my computer I believe i would get flicks and funny colors.

Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

Do I have to go on the bios to change on the settings?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I'm hoping that I've put this in the right forum

A couple of months back, I bought Tomb Raider: Anniversary for my computer and kept having random crashes while playing it. After this annoyance got out of hand, I had my computer checked and the problem appeared to be a faulty hard-drive. With no apparent way to rescue it, the offending item was duly removed, and the problems ceased.

Until now.

Within the last month or so, I've acquired a number of new games, these being ShadowRun, Halo 2 and Assassins Creed (all for PC, obviously). All these games have caused my computer to freeze intermittently and eventually crash (Blue Screen of Death!), which I can assure you is irritating as anything. Especially when it wipes your game data.

As you can imagine, these games have high requirements for play, and I'm wondering whether its my graphics card that's behind this series of annoyances? I have a Radeon X1950 Pro, which is initially accepted by all the games (I do have the minimum requirements for all of the aforementioned titles).

So, can anyone suggest what my problem might be? And, even better, might you be able to suggest a solution? Altair and MasterChief need you!

Many thanks

P.S - If I've omitted any major details, please hasten to tell me, so that I can amend them forthwith!

Hello, I had an issue with my integrated graphic card (AMD Radeon). It is broken and now my laptop cannot load into windows, only black screen appear than white screen appear and it loop there until I switch off my laptop . I try to enter the safe mode but it cannot load and do the same thing like I boot normally. Before this I disable the graphic card and my laptop work properly until my laptop update automatically  and enable my graphic card again, than this problem occur. I just want to know that can I disable my graphic card withou entering windows normally or in safe mode? Can I disable my graphic card in BIOS system? Or can you suggest any solution that can disable graphic card without entering windows? I hope you can hep me. Thank You.

Hi.
I have the above mentioned graphic card.

I have a VGA monitor connected to the VGA connector on the board, and that works great.
Then I wanted to have another monitor connected to the DVI port via a DVI to VGA adapter.
This doesn't work.
I'm unsure how to get the new monitor activated.

Any suggestions ?

TIA

Good afternoon, I have tried to find solution of this issue on your forum but without success. Problem: I have this laptop for over a 9 months. And still, with all updates and driver changes, I have the same issue. I have tried to follow some solution, like installing drivers ( latest set ): Radeon-Crimson-ReLive-16.12.1-SB-SATA-AHCI-Win10-Win8.1-Win7-64Bit-Dec7andWin8.1-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-16.12.2-Jan3 Without any success. Still I do not have driver installed for graphic card.All I got is: Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and somethimes ( yes, somethimes ) i get R7 M260 but with yellow triangle with exclamation mark. When I try to use that card, I have only basic graphic settings. Last night I have updated Bios ( downloaded from HP web page ) and again, nothing. Can you please help me? This should be decent laptop, but like this it has problems running simple tasks. Thank you.

I am running windows Vista. I have just reformated and then I literally started getting graphic card errors *Note was working perfectly fine before hand!!!!*, so I don't think it's the graphics card. After installing Vista *At this time I am running on onboard graphics*, I installed the installation disc that came with the card, and then the most recent drivers. But when I restart to ocmplete driver installation, I get BIOS beeps *2 short, 1 long* which indicates a video error *can someone give me more information on this*. Since it didn't work I decided to reformat again this time installing a later version of the graphic drivers 186, *which I know are stable from when I know I used before I reformated*, and still no luck. The thing again, which I must emphasize, is it was working 100% *no troubles at all* before I reformatted which was yesterday, and my display is connected and coming from my graphics card. I go to device manager and I get error code 43 can someone also get me more in-depth information on this as well as the BIOS beeps.

Much appreciated, and I hope to god it isn't my graphics card

A:upgrading HP 15 Ay137ng and graphic card issue

Hi,You can upgrade your RAM to 16GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM. (2x8GB) Right now your system has 8GB of RAM (1x8GB). Your graphics card is a r5 m430. It is being recognized wrongly by AMD application. You can see on internet that this is happening quite a lot with this graphics card since the chip of the 430 is the same as the 330. To resolve this (even if the drivers are the same) try going to device manager (right-click on start and then on device manager), go to graphics adapter and you will see the two graphics cards (integrated and dedicated), now right-click on AMD card and click on update software. This should bring back the writting r5 m430. Let me know if you need further help,David

I bought a geforce 7600 graphics card about 6 months ago and ever since using it the computer froze while playing certain games, especially those with high graphical demands like BioShock or Brothers in Arms etc.. Sometimes on the title screen other times shortly after starting a game. It seemed to be ok on older games like Thief 3 or Enemy Territory but I've recently moved and bought a new TFT monitor and now even Thief 3 freezes at the title screen! I had a CRT monitor before and this didn't happen with Thief 3 (except maybe once or twice in game).

When it freezes, the mouse can't be moved, no keyboard buttons function (even the caps lock light) and the music that happens to be playing in the background goes into a 1 second loop of sound, I have to do a hard reset every time. This has also happened occasionally while using music production software, and even once or twice it happened while the computer had no applications loaded, at the desktop screen. But it will *always* happen while trying to play a game.

I have checked the CPU temp straight after reboot and it hovers around 46 - 49 degrees so I don't think it's the CPU overheating. Just wondering if it could be the graphic card overheating, or some fault in the actual product or maybe the power supply (which I bought 6 months ago too). Is there anyway I can check these out without spending more money? I mean if I buy another card and it turns out to do the same thing, then I'll know it&... Read more

Hello, Lately my laptop has been displaying the following error code on Lenovo Solution Center hardware diagnose: W19JEANUN-2RJVNC The error is pointed to my AMD R9 M275X graphic card, and as of lately, I've been having a lot of issues in which games start to present lower frame rates for lapses of 10 to 30 seconds, before going again on normaly. My drivers are up to date and hardware temperatures are OK too. I'd appreciate any insight on how to fix it, or at least, get an answer if this is a software issue, or a hardware issue.

Why hello there.Thanks for dropping by ~I have a very serious issue with this laptop, the HP Pavilion G6T-2300 CTO, which, like most HP computer apparently, has two graphic cards: a bad ass Nvidia GeForce GT 630M and a whatever integrated one. The computer is meant to run mostly on the integrated one, since it uses less power, and the computer is supposed to switch between hardwares when it guesses that whatever task you're attempting will required more GRAPHIC-PROCESSING POWER.Now my problem is, it never does. It keep running on that integrated "graphic card" that can't even run minesweeper without dropping at 10FPS, and since the person who's owning this is a little bit of a gamer, it really annoys 'em.Here's what I tried so far.-Uninstalling the driver of the integrated drive (which led to a black screen and some laugh)-Updating every driver ever-Uninstalling the NVidia driver, to reinstall it, which led to nothing good.-Going in the graphic drivers parameters, to modify every single program so it uses the NVidia card, which led to my computer not to give a **bleep** about my indication and still make poor hardware choices. Now I don't know what to do and it seems like no program uses the good graphic card at all.Help.Dear dog help.

I send the computer to Toshiba yesterday but i need a feedback because a repair . If the problem even graphical as might cost to repair?

Someone know ?

A:Satellite A500 -149 - graphic card issue

I think nobody here can help you. Either is graphic card defective or maybe display only.
Anyway, if GPU is defective it will be pretty expensive.

I think you should contact Toshiba service and ask what is the result of the diagnostic and how much you must pay for repair.

HP vx74 17" CRT
Intel(R) 82845G Graphic controller.

This is a new PC. I purchased a Stealth PCI S80 card.
In CMOS I set it to PCI, it was set to that as default.
I disabled onboard graphic controller in device mgr.
I shut down pc, installed card, made sure it was seated. Connected monitor to card. Fired up the PC and monitor will not come out of standby mode.
I removed card and left onboard graphic controller disabled. PC fired up and worked fine, no graphic support. I looked in device manager and there was not monitor anywhere. I called HP support and explained. First thing tech person stated that he had the same problem with this card on a EMACHINE.
He had no fix. I contacted Stealth via email, no responce, went to their site and it stated Best Data now owns the rights. Best data no help as of now.
Card is about 3 days old now and have 12 days left to return.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,
I have an important technical issue with my computer that I bought little more than 2 years ago. Below is the information for the computer.
Model: Allienware x51 R2

OS: Windows 8.1 64 bit English
After I bought computer on April 2014, I did not have any issue for 2 years. On April 2016, while I was working on my computer screen went black and I was not able to start system again. I was able to reach the system by startup win 8.1 usb disk. But, screen was flickering and only allow to choose 800X600 resolution and only one graphic adapter were visible which was Generic Graphic Adapter. There was no any sign of my graphic card info which was AMD R9 270x (came with the system). I installed graphic card drivers again using the support disk came with the computer after I removed all old graphic drivers. It did not help.
I format the computer, installed clean Windows 8.1 and did not recognize card again. I upgraded the Win 10 and installed latest graphic card drivers from its web site and I had flickering, frozen screen again. I believed that AMD R9 270x was broken.
I bought a new graphic card (PNY GeForce GTX960 XLR8 1178MHZ 2GB GDDR5) and installed it. It worked very well without any issue for about 2 months. Just 2 weeks ago after Win. 10 did an automatic update I had exactly similar issues as I had before with AMD card, flickering screen and there was no sign of graphic card installed into my system, 800X600 resolution and only one graphic adapter were visible which ...

Hey all, I have had this issue for a few days now and I think its the graphic card causing it.

Currently im using a Nvidia 560 Ti and last few days when I try to play some semi graphic intensive games I keep getting the "graphic driver stopped responding and has recovered" every single time, and if I continue playing after I get that warning, after a few minutes the entire computer freezes and I need to do a hard reboot. I have tried different games and I have this issue on games like Skyrim, Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 4. However other games that is less graphic intensive such as Starbound, Eve Online, all works fine, I can watch 1080p movies all fine aswell. Note that this started just a few days ago, I have been able to play all those games above without a problem for a long time.

I have tried various things like checking temperature (which is fine, howers around 50 degrees in games), I have tried updating drivers to latest beta drivers and other various settings in the nvidia control panel, without success.

So my question is, is there other things I could try, and is my graphic card really the issue? I have ment to upgrade it, and maybe it is time, if yes any suggestions? Im a fan of Nvidia and I have been thinking about the GFX 770 one.

Thank you in advance

Edit: I did not try downgrading, im downloading version 331.65 at the moment to give it a try.

A:Computer freezes in games, graphic card the issue?

Try completely uninstalling the graphics driver. Run CCleaner to fix any registry errors. Also try reseating the card.

I've just restored a Precision M4700 with Windows 7.
It's got 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a nVidia Quadro K2000M which I believe has 2GB of memory
So why in Windows does it say installed memory 8GB, usable 7.88GB.
Does this mean it's using the Intel graphics by default. So how and when would it use the nVidia card?
Thanks
John

A:Dell Precision M4700 Graphic Card Issue

Hi teesvalleytech,
Thanks for posting.
This is a normal situation.  Yes, your computer will use the Intel graphics card by default, if the game or program you are using requires more graphics power, it will switch to the nVidia card.  This can not be manually changed.  en.community.dell.com/.../19664003
