Hi, I am looking for a possible graphics card upgrade for my computer. My computer doesn't have PCI-Express or AGP, so PCI is my only option (short of buying a new, better computer which we absolutely don't have the money for.)

I am wondering, what you guys recommend for me? Right now, I'm getting 4 fps on World of Warcraft which is barely playable (max is usually like 10, in less detailed areas).

I am running this:
Dell Dimension 2400
Intel Pentium 4 2.53GHz
0.99GB RAM

And I saw somewhere that I might have to upgrade my power supply, so here's the specs of it:

Model - DPS-200PB-146B Rev 01
Input 100-127V~/5A, 200-240V~/2.5A
Output - +12=--/10A -12V =--/1A
+5=--/22A -5VSB =--/2A
+3.3V =--/14A
Max Combined Power of +5&+3.3V Output: S135W
+5V&+3.3V 135W

Can you help me out? It'd be nice being able to play with a better fps. =)

I am having a problem with my Intel 82852/82855 graphics card drivers. this started when I tried to update the driver. I downloaded the driver, and tried to update it by unzipping the file, and going to device manager, selecting the device, selecting update driver, and specifying the location. it worked pretty well, but right at the end of the proccess, where the bar was almos full, it stopped. the wizard told me that there had been an error while installing my hardware; "the specified file could not be found." however, I didn't see a file specified anywhere! also, after this, my video card, (or cards, I'm not sure; device manager shows two had the little yellow circle with and exclamation mark near it. I tried this several times, completely unninstalling the drivers from the add/remove program lists. I've even tried it with an older driver, but I get the same message. Please help me: I'm pretty desperate!

Hi There,
Sorry if i am asking the same question which may have been answered in some other post. We created an image for windows 10 on a Dell OptiPlex 3050 with HD graphics 630. Everything is working normally, but when we try to RDP to the desktop from another machine, the below error comes right after login
igfxEM Module has stopped working
The current display drivers are version We downloaded from Dell website and these are the most updated ones. 
We have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers few times already. The error does not appear when login in locally, but only when we try to RDP.
When we disable the service "Intel(R) HD Graphics Control Panel Service", the error does not appear in RDP. 
Kind of trying to figure out the behavior and if someone has experienced this before. The same is happening on OptiPlex 3040 as well. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading this post.

After I upgraded to Windows 10, The Graphics card worked fine, atleast 4 months later, I saw that the Intel Graphics tray icon was missing when I entered Device Manager it had a little exclamation point by it and said

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525.
I seem to have broken my display when I was trying out the Intel GMA Driver's feature 'Flip 180' which supposedly flips the monitor's display. Instead it exhibited what would happen if you change your resolution to 640x480, with really large icons. I tried to restart the computer but when I checked in my display settings it says something like:

"The currently selected driver cannot be used. It was written for a previous version of Windows and is no longer compatible with this version.

The system has started using the default VGA driver."

And in my screen saver settings:
"The screen saver can't run because it requires a newer video card or one that's compatible with Direct3D."

Aside from that, the computer works perfectly fine, but I don't want this to be a problem in the future. What happened here? Is there any way I could fix this?

A few days ago, I upgraded my my old GTS 250 to a GTX 550ti and added 4 GBs of RAM as well. I opened up WoW to test it and noticed that it would go from around 60fps to around 10 in a 2-3 seconds span and go back up again(the game would be all jumpy). This would happen every few seconds. I deleted all the drivers, used Driver Sweeper, restarted computer and installed the latest driver again and the same thing would happen. Today I took the card out, along with all the ram, made sure that everything was installed correctly and put it back together again. I also re-installed the drivers a few times and updated my mobo's chipset and still the same thing is happening (this time with Skyrim so I guess it's not a patch or anything). It's fan is working and all the other fans/heatsink as well. I defragmented my computer as well even tho it didn't really need it.

I have moved the sound card to another slot, fitted the new graphics card but there is a problem - when I reboot, the screen i dead and I get a constant 'beep' coming from the PC's internal speaker. If I don't move the sound card, the new graphics card won't fit.

hello everybody, my name is Brian, I own a dell xps 13 (9350) purchased in 2017, but its the 2016 model with intel iris 540 graphics, its also the model with the QHD+ touch-screen, 3200x1800 resolution.
not sure if it matters what else the system has spec-wise, but ill include that also.

My question is in regards to the colors, and what this screen is producing picture/video quality-wise when I'm viewing colorful photos, or watching videos with colors on youtube;

I've watched quite a handful of videos on youtube about the dell xps 13, and a lot of them suggest that this laptop comes "a touch off" in terms of color gamma and/or color accuracy - whatever that means, but they say the xps 13 out of the box, with no settings adjusted other than what dell and intel have done, that the color and screen needs to be calibrated. 

how do I know what to do and how to check if I need it? I mean, everything seems to be good looking, but if its off and I just don't know it, I would like to know how to modify these "said" settings, as I want the most out of my xps 13!

I'm also experimenting with different power-plan settings, trying to configure this machine for the best possible battery-life, and also longevity in overall-life span. meaning I want to preserve this machine in ways possible, without reducing any of the added benefits of having such a high-performing laptop.

I have an Intel Family HD 4400 Graphics card on my laptop and I have updated the driver as of an hour ago (latest driver released August 12, 2015).  Before I upgraded to Win10 I never had a problem with my graphics, even playing Skyrim or other graphics demanding games, but now, even watching a streaming video online, my graphics driver crashes and recovers...  constantly.  I've tried rolling back the graphics driver as well and still I have crashes.  Anyone else having this issue?  I've searched all over and haven't found much about graphics drivers being affected after the Win10 upgrade, but anyone who has had issues either just updated the driver or rolled back their driver and the problem was fixed, so I really don't know where else to look for ideas on how to resolve this problem. 
I don't know what all details would be needed, but I'll list some hardware specs here:
Dell Inspiron 17r 5750...? (or something like that)
Intel core i7-4500 cpu 1.8 GHz 2.4GHz
64 bit OS
8 GB Ram
Windows 10 Home Edition
Intel Family HD 4400 Graphics

"Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered." 
If anyone has a clue, please let me know.  Much appreciated...

I recently purchased an Acer Veriton (M498G) desktop which has an i5-650 processor, Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) and Intel HD Graphics listed as the video card. I also purchased a PNY nVIDIA Quadro FX 380 PCI-E card for improved picture editing and home video viewing and editing. I have already replaced the original 300 wattt power supply to a 430 watt Antec Truepower I had on hand and boosted the RAM to 8 gigs from the original 4.

Question 1) Am I getting any improvement in visual quality or system speed with the Quadro or is it a waste of money and I should just save up to buy a bigger video card? This card was on sale for $115.

If I am getting improvement then I need to ask another question.

Question 2) Instructions for the Quadro installation are as follows...

1--Uninstall the existing VGA driver.
-Remove the existing Display Driver via "Add or Remove Porgrams".
-Shut down your computer.

2--Remove your Existing Graphics Board (or Disable Integrated 3D Graphics Controller).

skipping instructions on how to remove existing graphics board

-Systems with integrated (also know as on-board) 3D graphics may require you to disable the integrated 3D graphics system. Consult the owners or vendor manual that came with your PC on how to properly do this.

So how do I disable the onboard? just uninstall the driver? The only driver I can find on the uninstall menu is "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver" does this sound correct? I did find the option in BIOS and ... Read more

Im trying to play World of Warcraft on the machine and it is a bit jumpy due to what I assume is the graphics card. The system has 1Gb of RAM so I dont believe it has anything to do with the RAM.

My question is, will my system benifit from a PCI graphics card or is the bus too slow for PCI to show any type of improvement? The only reason I say PCI is because the system does not have an AGP slot.

A:Unable to install Intel HD graphics driver on a fresh install of WIN10

The most likely suspect is a bad video chip.

Now it could be a power related problem too, or heat, but if you have used good parts and a cool case and have tried multiple versions of the driver then it starts looking like hardware failure is likely.

Who makes your 550W power supply?

Double check all of your connections.
And you could go into the UEFI/BIOS and reset all defaults - don't do any tweaking until this problem is resolved.
Is that board running the most recent version of the BIOS?

Hey guys. I recently upgraded my laptop- a pavilion dm4-3055dx to win10.  I've been trying to update my laptop graphics from Intel Graphics 3000 to 4000 but it keeps saying my laptop doesn't meet the conditions. Is there any other display resolution better than this i can get. I can't even install a decent game on the laptop because of this.

A:Intel (R) Graphics Upgrade

Whether you have Intel 3000 or Intel 4000 depends on the processor. You have a Intel Core i5-2430M which means you have Intel HD3000 and that is not going to change by going to Windows 10. What display resolution are you seeing? The laptop is native 1366 x 768 and that is the max and really only resolution it can run.  What is it saying under display adapters in device manager?

I need some help with my Alienware 17 R1. I did a clean install of Win 10 using the Media Creation Tool. I seem to have gone wrong somewhere as I've completely lost my integrated Intel graphics card. It's missing from my Device Manager and from my BIOS. I only have access to the Geforce 770M. As such, I can't even install the Intel graphics card driver from the Dell Support site. All other drivers installed without issue.
I have no idea when I lost the card, whether during this clean install or my previous Upgrade to Win 10 as I wasn't paying attention. Note: during initial upgrade, I didn't follow the guide on Dell Support as I wasn't aware there would be specific conditions to upgrade the laptop. That means during initial upgrade I didn't turn off Secure Boot in the BIOS, nor did I uninstall my graphics card drivers prior to upgrade.
Any help would be appreciated as I need this fixed URGENTLY for some pending work. Please let me know if anyone of you has a solution to this.

Hopefully someone can help with this query as I don't know very much about graphics cards. I've connected an external 19inch monitor to my Sony laptop which the graphics driver (Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset v7.14.10.1295) can support with a maximum resolution of 1440 x 900. However I now want to upgrade to a larger 23 inch screen with a 1920 x1080 resolution. Basically I'm not sure if the drivers capability is determined by the specification of external equipment connected to it, so need to know if I have to upgrade the graphics card as well. Any assistance would be appreciated.

A:Intel Graphics Card

I'm not absolutely certain but if your onboard graphics adapter specifies the maximum supported resolution to 1440 x 900 then I don't think you can exceed that. You could always connect the 23" screen and run it at 1440 x 900 although it would look bad.

However, I suggest you wait for other opinions from the experts here before taking my word for it.

Many game system requirements say that a discrete graphics card needs to be installed in order to play.

For example, even Diablo 3 which isn't that intensive wouldn't play on my friend's desktop computer until he installed a nVidia graphics card. Then it played perfectly. Even though he has a Core 2 Quad which came out before the Intel i-series chips.

Well I noticed that newer Intel i-series chips have the GPU embedded into the processor. Like on my Surface Pro 3 i5. Does this work the same way as if you had a discrete nVidia card installed? Meaning games with the requirement for an independent graphics card would work without need to install an independent graphics card?

Because alot of game requirements list the need for a nVidia or AMD graphics card. But don't specify anything about GPU embedded into the Intel chip as an alternative.

by gpu embedded I would have to assume motherboard integrated is what you are referring to? integrated gpu's don't have video memory specifically for graphics so they aren't nearly as specific nor will they dependently focus on gaming/video performance.

It's sort of like with older laptops you can have a "dual core laptop" man back in the day we thought that was the new hit! In reality though without a dedicated card it might be able to run a game on low settings ( just maybe) but it won't do much more than that.

First time posting, so bare with me...

Okay, here's the deal: I recently installed W7 on my laptop. Absolutely, and I mean ABSOLUTELY no problems. SO, I decide to install it on my PC. Bad idea, I guess.

My computer keeps crashing. Once I run Winamp or get to multi-tasking, it crashes and reboots.

Recently, it's given me a "Solve PC Issues" message about my graphics card. So, I look into it. I can't find a Windows 7 driver for my graphics card and this is driving me nuts! Please, help!~

Hey, Yesterday I bought my Lenovo Z51-70 with Core-i5 5200U and Windows 10 (64bit) with two graphics cards - Intel HD graphics 5500 and AMD R9 M375. The issue is that cards don't switch automatically nor any other way. I just can't switch between them. (checked if they switch i AMD System Monitor) I have been searching my native and english internet in search of solution to the problem for last few hours, found many many people with the same prblem, but no solution. I have already installed all the newest drivers, patches etc. Changed many things in my Catalyst Control Centre, added apps and games to it. I have tried every possible way and now I'm losing hope. Anybody solved this problem?Thank you in advance for replies, Hope you can help me, please!

I don't think DirectX versions change depending on your graphics card. They are Operating System specific and you can get the latest version here.
