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.)

Hello everybody. As I mentioned, I am using the Omni 27 - 1000et model All In One desktop computer. I have 2 problems.1- The factory-built Windows 7 computer automatically upgraded itself to Windows 10, but did not receive the Windows 7 activation code. As a result, the currently installed windows 10 seems to be unactivated and I am uncomfortable with this situation. I have to solve this.2-I do not know if the graphics card of the device is AMD mobility Radeon HD 5570 or AMD Radeon HD6550A. As a result I applied to 3rd party driver control applications and installed the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5570 driver and said that the driver was successfully installed. But when I go to the device manager, I get the message '' The driver for this device is not installed ''. As a result, when I turn the computer on and off, I get an error such as '' The driver for the device is not installed or the device is not installed '' by AMD.I ask for your help in solving these problems.I'm sorry for my bad english.

Can I request for replace the same graphic card on my laptop? Can I just send it to service center to do this? I think my graphic card was damaged

A:Replace graphic card

There is no replacement for a graphics card; it is a soldered component on the motherboard so if the video chip is bad it means a whole new motherboard. Have you tried connecting it to an external monitor to see if the picture is garbled like that? May be the screen or even screen cable and not the motherboard although that does have the look of a bad video chip.  Are you under warranty? If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

It's apparent that my laptop's graphic card is messed up. When the computer is switched on, the screen first goes white an after a long time, half the screen turns black.I'm forced to switch off the main power then. My laptop is an HP one, 2.0 Ghz,2 gb ram and 128 MB Nvidia AMD graphics. I bought it in late 2007. I heard it's not possible to replace graphic card; but how can I check whether it can be replaced ? It has an expansion port on it's left side and a slot in the right side.

Also, how much long will it to take replace it (at the repair store I mean) ?

Hi techy guys,

I really need your advise. I have a laptop and it is now 4 years old. I have never experienced any problem until my "graphic card stop" functioning. I believe it is the real problem it is also not appearing anymore in device manager and i tried several times reinstalling it but no luck it is still broken, i cannot play any rpg game and everytime i play videos using media players, it is a bit laggy and also i cannot adjust the brightness. I already asked several people here in my country, still i have a doubt on their analysis. Some says, they can fix it by using reflowing method (i believe it will not be fixed permanently) and other says i should replace it by now. What should i do?

Hoping for your response,

A:Want to replace integrated graphic card on a HP desktop

as a rule of thumb, i like to use at least a 450-500w power supply for any video card that requires external power directly from the power supply (minus the enthusiast grade cards of course, which will require more). you may be able to get away with a 400w unit with the 5570 but i don't know the power requirements off the top of my head. is there any specific reason you are looking to upgrade the graphics?

i would like to point out though that for an extra ~$75-90 you could get a 5770 which would be much more powerful than the 5570.

You are going to have to purchase a new or different card if you want to replace the current card.

If you are asking if you can just increase the amount of memory on the current card, then no.

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.

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

I am trying to upgrade my computer. So far I've successfully upgraded the CPU, RAM and wifi/bluetooth adapater. However, I have not been able to successfully upgrade my video card.  I've purchased two different cards and when I install them the computer powers up but the screen is black. It seems like the computer is still functioning because when I remove the card and boot using the onboard video the system has installed drivers for each of the two cards I've tried. This is my computer:http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c03377747 These are the two video cards I've installed:https://www.amazon.com/HP-EliteOne-Radeon-Graphics-671864-002/dp/B00H71JJOShttps://www.amazon.com/Asunflower-GeForce-N13P-GL2-A1-660498-002-Graphics/dp/B01MF91A4P I noticed that my computer doesnt have a cable connected to either the MXM_LVDS or UMA_LVDA ports which are located right above the MXM slot. Is this related to my problem? I've inspected the hardware and there does not appear to be a lose cable anywhere.  As far as I can tell there is nothing to plug into either one of those two ports. I have also updated my bios, disabled secure boot and all power management functions (suggestions I read in other posts). So far nothing has worked.  I've included a copy of my msinfo32 and a picture of the motherboard. I'm at my wit's end, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,I own a HP Omni 27-1015t  with a GeForce GT 540M card.  Unfortenuately, I am not able to install windows 10 due to compatilibity issues. After contacting HP support some months ago, I finally got around to removing the card today (as they suggested), but when I switch on the computer again, the display is blank. Is there anything outside of removing the card I need to do for the mother board graphics to kick in?  Only thing HP support suggested was to remove the card, install win10 and then put the card back into the computer (it should be win10 compatible).  I did try to install win10 with the card in, but was not able to get the correct graphics. Hoping for some good tip here.  Thank you. RegardsAre

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.

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):

I have ProLiant ML110 G6  I've bought Sapphire Radeon R7 250 2GB GDDR5 card. Before I buy, I've checked compatibility of my PCIe v2 x16 slot with PCIe v3 x16 card. I'ts compatible backwards so I can use v3 card in my v2 slot i MB. But When I was trying to install it I've noticed that on MB is inprinted PCIe x16 45W (I attached photo below).  So can I use this card - in specification is given that consumption of this card is 70W. Can undervoltage break my G card? Maybe I should ure Riser with extra molex pin? x16 slot gives 45W and molex can give 35W = total 80W. What you think

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.

Nothing. So, I'm now looking to either buy a USB wifi adapter, or preferably just get a new wifi adapater card and replace the Atheros AR5BWB222.

 How do I change the card in my desktop PC?  I have uninstalled the AMD card, removed the driver and removed the card so my PC is just using the onboard Intel graphics but when I try to put in my old GeForce 430GT card the PC just gives me three long beeps and 3 short beeps over and over.   It wont respond to me holding down the esc or del keys while booting (they both work fine without the GeForce in the slot)   People have suggested I need to change something in the BIOS first to disable the Intel graphics  but I cannot see anything in there relating to that. I admit to being rather stupid in assuming that a new PC with newer graphics card with 2Gb RAM must be better than my ancient 1Gb GeForce but that seems to be the case :-(    If there is a problem with using this particular card then suggestions for what would work better are welcome. Thanks in advance.

If so whats the best way to do a uninstall and a install? I also have a ATI Rage Fury Maxx card laying doing nothing. Would it work or not, is it better than what I have? Is it compatable with the XP OS? Thanks.

I'm running Win 7 ultimate. Last night everything worked and I left it running, but this morning the machine was shut off and on restart it got the startup options (normal, save mode, etc.) and I had no sound.  I did a windows restore to yesterday and when that didn't help, I let windows update the driver. Since that didn't help, I downloaded the ????7ka403ww.exe from Lenovo, ran it and did the restart. Still no sound and the device manager was then listed as "High Definition Audio Device" When I let windows update the driver again it showed as SoundMax again.  What is it supposed to be? I do have an old T61 for spare parts and could replace the sound card if that's what it is and I can figure out how.     

Go to Solution.

A:Replace T61 sound card?

The sound card is not replaceable. DO you get sound from the headphone jack? Also is your internal speaker selcted as the primary playback device in your control panel? Also is your restore a complete factory restoration or just restore to a previously backed up point.

Built a computer for my son to game on. I have a MSIK8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI mobo. I have been running two Nvidia NX7600GT's. One of them blew the other night. Any suggestions on what to upgrade to? I have a 600w power supply so I think I'm pretty good there.

I'm kind of new to the building and compatibility part; so any help would be wonderful and well appreciated.

Also, probably a stupid question but here goes. I assume that since I'm running dual cards now, I will continue to run dual cards? Would like to stay with Nvidia products.

Thank you in advance!

A:Need to replace video card

From what I can remember you have a few options:

- Run single new card, Nvidia GTX 460 or the 550Ti cards would offer decent performance at a mid to lower end price range. Or spend more for the top end Nvidia offerings GTX 580, not sure their minimum PSU recommendations, but at least require 2 x PCIe Power connectors.
- Run dual cards, 1 new, 1 old 7600GT as NVIDIA® PhysX® processor, offloading that processing from the main new card.
- Bin the old working card and run 2 x New. GTX 460s are nice in SLi but all others above this can run SLi too.

Just because it is an SLi motherboard it doesn't mean you have to run 2 cards. It will happily run one card, it just has support to also run 2.

I've had a bit of trouble replacing my graphics card. Annoyingly, this isn't even a new card; it's an old one that the (rather dodgy) shop didn't transfer when they moved all my parts to a new case with a new motherboard.

At first I struggled to actually find where in the case the graphics card would fit; it turns out I had to punch out a metal bracket first. It seems like my current graphics card is built directly into the motherboard or something, as the graphics card slot was free.

Motherboard: N1996
Current GFX Card (according to DirectX Diagnosis): ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series
GFX Card I want back: nVidia Geforce FX 5200 (Lancer - 210 - M03)

Picture A shows where my monitor plugs in (where I'm assuming there is some form of GFX card built into the motherboard).

Picture B shows my "new" graphics card from the outside after I tried to put it in. I tried plugging my monitor in here and I got nothing.

Picture C shows my "new" graphics card from the inside. It was very tough to get in as there was no little lever that I've seen in instructional videos, and it didn't seem to want to fit. In fact, I'm worried I won't be able to get it out.

Right now the "new" graphics card is still in my computer (doing nothing), but I'm still plugged into the old one.

Can anyone help me get this set up properly?

Hello, As per the specs of the unit in the link below, There is a dedicated NVDIA graphics card on the machine apart from onboard graphics. If the screen resolution is still not satisfactory try updating Intel and NVIDI drivers, also try windows update. http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04089399#AbT0

this is my first post...and first of all just wanted to say hello, and this is a pretty awesome site.
I recently bought a laptop (HP Pavilion DV 1000) for college. It has a Mobile Intel Extreme Graphics 2 Card. I bought this computer knowing that i would not be able to play a lot of new games such as Counter Strike Source which i played a lot on my home computer. Now i am regretting this decision and am trying to figure out if it is possible to change my graphics card. The thing is it is integrated with my mother board and according to HP its not possible to change this. But i figure there is prolly some way to change the graphics card and was wondering if you guys knew how to do this?
thanks in advance for any help....

A:Possible to replace my graphics card?

Check the motherboard and see if it has a AGP slot. Way of knowing this is that it will be the first slot(closest to CPU) and it will be positioned farther to the right than the other slots. IF your computer has one you can turn off the integrated video in your BIOS and install that one.

Well after much screwing around with my second computer system I have concluded that the GeForce 7200GS I bought a year ago is dying. So I'm looking to replace it.

I don't need anything spectacular, I don't even use the computer. Just let me roommate use it and the most demanding thing she does is play some WoW.

Looking to spend no more than $50.00. Its going in a PCIe slot. And I would prefer something with a fan. Not big on passive cooling, at least with the case its in. Not the best airflow. I don't need dual monitor out or TV out or anything fancy.

the PSU I have is a 500w Antec.
right now I'm kinda eying this card:

MSI N94GT-MD512 GeForce 9400 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail

Any thoughts for ppl who know more than me??

thx in advance

A:Need to replace video card

You could also look at the older 8600GT. It will net you marginally better performance than the 9400GT.

Another consideration could be the Radeon HD 4650.

Just a quick query this is about Win7, and the way it handles installs.

I currently have an nVidia 6600 APG video card, I am replacing it with a
HIS Radeon HD 4670 PCIe card.

So I believe the steps should be like normal

1. reboot system to safe mode.
2. un-install nVidia drivers and software. (should this include Nvidia physix
software I beieve it installed with a game ?)
3. power down PC
4. remove old card
5. install new card
6. reboot PC to safe mode
7. Install drivers from CD. (here is the first question, with Win7 do you skip this
step and let it find/install drivers from internet?)
8. reboot PC normal
9. Have fun
Second question, will this cause Win7 to ask to be re-activated?

I think that covers it, feel free to add steps if neccessary.

A:Replace old video card

why do you need to boot into safe mode? Also, you won't be able to install that card's driver in safe mode.

uninstall anything that says nvidia in the control panel (if physx is listed, then uninstall. if not, it is coupled with the driver). power off, remove card, insert new card. power on, install new drivers from the manufacterer's website (This is not a windows driver install). Windows will normally select an older, trusted version of the driver. If you want the latest, most updated version, see below V

According to your specs, this is what you need to download: http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloa...n_win7-32.aspx

ps. now have fun

hello, I am a gamer and I was wondering what is the best graphics card to upgrade from my old GT 545. This is my exact PC model right here: HEREI was thinking of getting the EVGA GTX 1050ti but can someone confirm it is compatible and if so can I get better high-end GPU without having to replace any other components? (I would prefer Nvidia)

A:What is the best graphics card to replace my GT 545?

Also I'm very new to computers and was wondering what the different brands of Nvidia cards such as EVGA, Windforce, Gigabite, MSI, Zotac etc are. Do they improve performance? What should I pick as my own graphics card?
