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.)

Hey Jaalhu, Most of the laptops have gfx processors so you'd have to swap the proc. For example, Intel HD Graphics 520 or 620 in processor. You can always lookup your graphics properties by searching "msinfo" on your computer then expanding Components and select display. Hope this helps.

While I have a working machine, I don't have this card working as so its a little slow. Is it possible for me to get the card changed or is it fixed into the laptop?

I am working on an Ideapad Yoga 13 and after the Creator's Update was issued I have not been able to run dual monitors on this PC. When I open the device manager, the graphics driver is showing an error and the properties menu returns the following message:"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)" I have tried reinstalling the Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver about 10 times, including the most recent version from Intel, and about 5 previous versions. None have been operable. I did also try resetting the PC, which worked for about 5 minutes before reverting back to the current state. Is this something that can be resolved? Or has this graphics card simply reached the end of its run?

hello, i have a 9800gt that gives a very low fps on crysis, i went to the shop from where i purchased it and they said that you need to change your power supply, currently its 230watt, i was thinking that i should replace my card with another one as mine does not have a six pin supplementary power connector. so my question is that should i change my psu first or should i switch my card first?
 

A:Should i change my power supply or should i change my graphics card?

your running a 9800gt on a 230W PSU!? not sure how your doing that without it shutting down as soon as you start a game. the 9800gt needs a 450W psu with 24A on the 12v rail (s). change the PSU. you are fortunate that you haven't overstressed the 230W psu and destroyed the rest of the system.

A:Ideapad 500s - graphics card issue

I've never owned a Lenovo laptop until recently, I've always bought my computers from Dell. However, a couple of week ago, I decided to purchase the Ideapad 500 and I'm already having an issue with the Intel Graphics Card. When I watch videos, like from YouTube, the images keep scrambling and there is a horizontal, white band of interference that keeps flashing at the bottom of the screen. I've even started getting the blue and black error screens. I ran the Lenovo Solutions Center app and got the same result. There was a failure with the Intel HD Graphics Card, "Mathematical Operations Test." Here is the Results Code: WVC007002-RK8WFH. I checked the Intel website for the latest version of the graphics card to see if mine is out of date, and it is. My version is 10.18.15.4279, which was released, 8/24/2015. The new version is 15.40.10.4300, which was released, 10/26/2015. The recommendations given by the Intel website for updating the driver, seem to address the issues I'm having with the blue and black screens. Anyway, since my driver is out-of-date, I downloaded and tried to install this latest one, but I got an error message, saying it must be done by the manufacture. I then checked Lenovo's website to see if they had it for downloading, but the only graphics card that Lenovo has available is out-of-date too. I have a two-year warranty, but I don't want to ship my laptop just to have my graphics card updated.

Good day and welcome to the community.While your machine does have discrete graphics, the dGPU is integrated (i.e. soldered) onto the system board. It is not a socketed chip or daughtercard. Very few laptops offered any kind of dGPU upgradeability.

First off I have an ideapad y510p with a Gt755m, So a little while ago i got a BSOD with the code driver power state failure after updating the driver and the laptop would constantly restart only to get the same error code over and over and I was unable to launch safemode, Going into the bios i was able to convert the graphics settings from discreate to UMA and this switched to the intel graphics allowing me to access windows and activate safe mode. Long story short I tried several different methods to fix the problems but the error code kept arising so i finally settled to uninstalling the device and its drivers and restarted the laptop. Now the graphics card won't even be detected and I can't install any drivers because the software says no compatible hardware is detected. Im just curious but does anyone have any solutions or ideas? Or is the GPU just dead?

Good day and welcome to the community.Intel HD Graphics 520 support is integrated into the CPU chipset. There is no discrete GPU or removable graphics card to upgrade on this machine.
 
Looking at one of the Yoga 500 hardware manuals: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_500-14isk_500-15isk_hmm_201509.pdf there appear to be system boards that offered discrete graphics (still soldered), so your only option would be a full system board swap.

Hi xenocider , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As this was also discussed on this thread. 
Yoga 900 USB Type C is not Thunderbolt 3 compatible 
 
As per article: 


The new USB Type-C port supports:
- USB 3.0
- native display port 1.2 video output
- VGA/HDMI output using a Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (which is a separate purchase)(Ref: page 8 of https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_900-13isk_ug_en_201509.pdf)
Adding to the above:  Gigabit Ethernet via any of several 3rd party USB-C-to-USB3 adapters that also feature an RJ45 jack. 
 
Articles for reviews: 
USB 3.1 Type-C port. There are no indications that this is a Gen. 2 Type-C port (10 Gbps) with Thunderbolt capability 
Lenovo Yoga 900 reviews 

 

As I can see , although it is not possible at the moment future upgrades may happen.
Hope this answered your query.

There is no way to upgrade the graphics subsystem on your machine. The Intel HD 520 is integrated in the chipset package. Though some laptops have discrete graphics chips, almost none were socketed. They're soldered, instead.

Can anybody help me out by telling my what slots the motherboard needs to have and what the minimum power supply I need for those card is, so that I can change it if necessary. ... Read more

A:Am I able to change my graphics card?

Well if the system has a 6670 in it already then the motherboard has a PCI-E slot so either the 550Ti or 7770 you picked will be compatible. You need to find the model and wattage of the PSU first though, to make sure the new GPU is getting enough power.

Just curious but why did you decide to buy that system if you were intending to change the graphics card? The mobo and PSU may be of questionable quality so you would have been better off choosing and assembling your own components.

A:Possible to change the graphics card?

Since it's a notebook, it's quite possible that your current video adapter is built right into the motherboard. I'm not familiar with that particular model but there might be some kind of graphics port for an upgrade but I wouldn't count on it. Unfortunately, HP Pavilions are pretty basic systems. Might be time for an upgrade if you want to play some of the newer games... How fast is the notebook, cpu speed-wise?

Haven't noticed any considerable changes in gaming or any errors, however should I reinstall again or let it be? Just afraid that some games wouldn't be able to run with wrongly-identified card.
Thank you so much

A:Graphics card change its model?

There is no problem. The AMD R5 Mx30 is a rebadged AMD HD 8500M series GPU as seen by the AMD catalyst.

RELEVANCY SCORE 56.4

Hello, hello, it's been a while since I last posted around here.

I've been working on my cousins computer which keeps freezin up for a couple of days now. I checked each piece of hardware, and found out it's his graphics card that's slowly going to the underworld. It's an old computer, and he plans to buy a new one in a couple of months, but he still wants to buy a new vc for this one.

These are the specs:

3,00 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
16 kilobyte primary memory cache
2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache
64-bit ready
Hyper-threaded (2 total) Board: ASUSTek Computer INC. LITHIUM 1.04
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 3.08 09/12/2005
Drives Memory Modules c,d
200,04 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity
34,60 Gigabytes Hard Drive Free Space

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS50 [Optical drive]

WDC WD2000JS-60MHB1 [Hard drive] (200,05 GB) -- drive 0 2048 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory

Slot 'A0' has 1024 MB
Slot 'A1' has 1024 MB
Slot 'A2' is Empty
Slot 'A3' is Empty

NVIDIA GeForce 6200SE TurboCache(TM) [Display adapter]
edit: running Windows XP
My question is, can someone suggest a slightly better graphics card (lets say under 150 euros). Given he's going to get a new computer I personaly think something around 50euros would be enough.
Thank you for your time, and if you need further info or if I skipped something, let me now.
 

A:Solved: Graphics card change. A bit of help?

From the description, it appears this is an HP branded computer. The power supply is probably 250 to 300 watts, so I would not buy a graphics card that is much of an upgrade over what it has now (if it requires more power). Maybe sonething like a Geforce GT 210 http://www.dabs.com/products/gigaby...ess-2-0-hdmi-68VZ.html?refs=43990000-55140000 or 8400GS.
