Preferred Solution: X1 Carbon 1st Gen Integrated Graphics died

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.)

I need to find out how to disable the Integrated Graphics on a HP Pavilion a705w Desktop PC. The integrated Graphics went out and I have a new PCI Graphics card to replace them with but I cant get the Bios to switch to the new card, because I cant see the bios to change the settings. Any suggestions? PLEASE Help! I have spent many hours talking to HPs online techs and they are obviously from another country and have no idea what I am talking about ( one guy I had to explain what Integrated meant).

Hello, As in the description, I have the 3rd gen X1 Carbon with a touch screen. I am having trouble getting my integrated camera to work. I believe I remember it working when I first got my laptop, but I haven't used it in a while. Yestrday, I went onto Google Hangouts to try and utilize the camera again, but it wasn't working. I kept looking around for how to start it. I tried downloaded the newest drivers (which would never complete installation because it couldn't find the device). I deleted my antivirus. I turned off my ad blocker on my Chrome. Restarted my laptop a few times. I did a bunch of stuff but nothing seemed to work. I went into the default integrated camera program on my laptop and it just shows a camera with an X through it, so it seems that my laptop is not hooked up properly or something. Any way to fix it??? Is it just a little glitch that I can fix it with, or is there a bigger issue at hand? Or... am I just delusional? Did I never have an integrated camera???

Open up Lenovo Settings from there you can control your camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and much more make sure under camera that safety mode is not enabled if it is then it won't sent pictures from camera disable it for it to send picture again since this a safety thing when you're not using the camera to prevent hackers / intruders from hijacking your camera to see what you got at home so they can break into when no one is home to steal stuff.  If this does not solve it reboot into bios then find I/O section in bios and make sure integrated camera there says [Enabled] and not [Disabled] if it's disabled thats also areason why it wont work.

Late in June (and it may go back further to when I bought the laptop earlier this year), I noticed the integrated camera in my X1 Carbon 6th Gen always stops sending video from the integrated camera exactly 30 minutes into a video conference. It doesn't make any difference if it's Skype, Zoom, or Google Hangouts. After 30 minutes in a video conference, the video feed freezes on a single frame of me, but the white LED next to the integrated camera is still lit. I've discovered that I need to start Task Manager, find Windows Camera Frame Server, force WCFS to quit, turn off the integrated camera in the video conference application, wait a moment for the white LED to go out, and then restart the integrated camera in the video conference application to get the video to restart. Lately I've been keeping Task Manager running from the start of the video conference calls. I've noticed that WCFS spikes at 20-30% of CPU use just before the video freezes (it usually is below 5-10%).  I appear to have the latest Integrated Camera Driver for Realtek (updated 6/11/18, released 6/5/18) and have the most recent BIOS and other firmware updates. The last time this behavior occurred was in my most recent video conference, on 8/24/18. Is this a known issue?

I recently installed a PCIe graphics card (nVidia GTX 750 Ti) on my ASUS P8Z77-V MB running Windows 8.1 and an Intel i5 processor. (The goal was to get displayport so I could use a higher resolution monitor.)

In the BIOS, I changed the "system agent" graphics setting to make the PCIe graphics card the primary video.

When I do that the machine seems to boot, and the MB splash screen (offering the option to enter BIOS) comes up on a monitor attached to the PCIe videocard, but Windows 8.1 never fires up the PCIe videocard.

If I set the MB to enable integrated graphics, the machine boots into Windows fine and Windows uses the videocard. Monitors attached to the videocard get the Windows display, and if no monitors are attached to the Intel integrated graphics, the Intel graphics software does not run.

The problem is that with the Intel integrated video set to be the primary video, I don't get the splash screen on monitors attached to the PCIe card, nor, I suspect, would I see Windows recovery screens, should something go wrong, though I don't know. If I attach a monitor to the Intel integrated video, then Intel's graphic engine runs in Windows, and I'd rather it did not.

As per usual, I don't know if this is a Windows problem or a MB problem or a graphics card problem. Since the MB bios splash screen goes to the right monitor for the MB setting, I am presuming the problem is in Windows. But, I cannot imagine what that would be.

Not sure how your motherboard works but may need the Intel graphics enabled for the dedicated card to work. Do you have the latest Intel graphics drivers installed? Have you tried installing the Nvidia drivers when on the Intel graphics?

I could be wrong and I want people to tell me if they think I am but I am at the point where I prefer integrated graphics even for high end functions like gaming and/or video rendering.

I have had several computers with integrated graphics and I have had several computers with dedicated graphics cards and my opinion is that the dedicated graphics cards absolutely blow. In all instances the cards caused the video to lag, the fans were always running, my Internet surfing slowed to a crawl and more blunders all attributed to a dedicated graphics card and I have never, ever experienced these issue with integrated graphics.

Before anyone asks, yes the cards were installed correctly, set up properly, and had the latest drivers just as I do with integrated graphics.

Has anyone else experienced this or am I the only one who thinks dedicated graphics cards blow? Thanks all.
 

A:Discrete Graphics vs Integrated Graphics

How well either perform largely depends on how you are using the PC.

Most of the symptoms you noted would indicate some sort of installation or configuration issue, and not a hardware issue. many chips/chipsets are used for both types. ALL testing shows that a dedicated card is always faster than an integrated chipset using the same chip/chipset.

A:Help with integrated graphics

Well, if you motherboard has an agp slot(as many integrated mobos lack graphics upgrade slots), you buy an agp card that's compatible(if your board has 8x agp get an 8x card), carefully install it(after reading it's directions of course), and then boot up. It should display using a generic windows driver, but look really low quality. If it doesn't display from the new card, you might have to enter the bios and setup the video options. Maybe select that your using an agp card instead of integrated or something like that, bioses vary. Then, you install the newest drivers for the card, like if it's nvidia based, dl the latest driver from nvida and install it.

Hey !

I have integrated graphics (Intel HD graphics) on my lappy . It says it can use upto a total memory of 1696mb approximately . I have core i3 370M processor and a memory of 4gb .

If my lappy can use memory upto 1696 mb , I can play all most all high end graphics games smoothly . But it is not happening . NFS HP3 is not running smoothly !
And games like GTA 4 aren't running .
What should I do in order to increase my gaming performance ?
Will it works upgrading my ram to 8 gb ?

A:Integrated graphics help !

Just because the integrated graphics has up to 1696 MB of shared RAM available, it doesn't overcome the fact that they are integrated graphics, which by virtue are not good performers at all when it comes to gaming. Unfortunately in your case, if it only has the Intel HD Graphics, there's not really going to be anything you can do to improve graphics performance with software. Your best bet would be to get an external graphics card for your laptop such as MSI’s external graphics card promises vastly improved graphics for laptops wanting a little more…. Don't know if they're selling it yet but if they are, then this would definitely help you with games.

No, not really. I recommend integrated gpu's for my users that are just using the web and email. The A6 has a integrated HD 8470D gpu. I think that is very similar to the Intel HD4000 series. It should give you HD graphic capabilities at 1920x1200, possoble as high as 2560x1600 depending on the monitor.
You do not get the high frame rate of a new gen gpu in a 16x pcie slot.

Hello Sagar and welcome to TSG!

Intel HD Graphics is the GPU that's integrated onto the motherboard of the computer. You cannot increase its DEDICATED memory UNLESS the motherboard you have allows such an adjustment in it's BIOS, AND you have enough RAM installed to account for the increase.

May I ask what the purpose is for increasing the dedicated memory is?

Hi everyone

My first post here. I don't really what I'm talking about but I think I know the answer already, hoping someone can help me tho. I've just bought skyrim and I checked my laptop specs against the minimum requirements which it did meet. I've been having trouble running it even with everything turned down low and now I know the problem. Its due to the integrated graphics which I don't know much about and didnt even know of its existence until yesterday!

I mentioned my problems to my friend who thought there might be a way to adjust the shared memory, is this possible? I'm just looking to explore all ways I might be able to run it before I admit defeat although I would be extremely surprised if I could run it.

Its an acer aspire 5735Z so not the newest and the specs are:

Windows Vista
intel dual core processor (2.16 Ghz)
3 gb RAM
Direct X 10 (intel graphics card with up to 1.244Mb)

any help would be appreciated. i didnt post this in the gaming section as i thought it was more of a hardware question
 

A:integrated graphics

Intel graphics chips don't meet the requirements of most of today's PC games.
Whilst it's (usually) possible to allocate more system RAM to the graphics chip in the BIOS Setup, there is a limit to how much you can allocate, and it's certainly less than the 1GB (recommended) that SkyRim requires.

Not only that, the more RAM you assign to the graphics chip, the less there is left over for Windows and applications to use. SkyRim requires 2GB RAM (minimum), 4GB (recommended). You have a total of 3GB RAM at present. Windows Vista needs most of that for itself just to run at an acceptable pace.
There just isn't enough RAM for both Vista and SkyRim together, especially as Vista is particularly heavy on RAM usage compared to other Windows versions.

So the Intel graphics chip is the primary weak spot, with installed RAM being the second weak spot.

You can add more RAM of course, but you're stuck with the Intel chip.

Seeing as no-one was replying to my thread in the Hardware section, I thought I'd repost it here:

First of all, please read the first part here, otherwise you might miss something out with whether it can be fixed or not: monitor problems after installing new RAM
To cut a long story short, I did got a BSOD later on - after I first put the new RAM in correctly (which is included in the previous post). I didn't think it was related at first, but now I get the feeling it might be.

I've got two GeForce 8800GTS' via SLi. When I plug my monitor in the bottom card, it works (but it says it's not attached to an NVIDIA GPU, and there's no Aero etc. - although I can up the res to 1280x1024, so it's not like SafeMode in that respect), but when I plug it in to my top card - the one I've always used - the monitor doesn't come on.

So does that mean my graphics card has died? It can't really be dislodged, as both cards are pretty much firmly fixed in place.

A:Could my graphics card have died?

I apologize that you haven't gotten any assistance yet. There are so many people that post questions and only a few of us that can actually answer them

So, let's see what i can do for you. I am going to ask some questions about your previous thread, too, to keep it all together. Otherwise I will confuse the hell out of myself and will be of no use to you.

I see you got a Code 43 on your graphics card. Does your Device Manager say you have a graphics card properly installed? It should look something like this (with your card's name, of course)

When you get a Code 43, something in the card itself has gone wrong, and has to be ignored by Windows. In your case, it is most likely the card that isn't giving you a picture. Since it's in SLI, your drivers or Windows knows there's two that are supposed to work in tandem so everything is diverted to the second, functioning, card.

There are a few things you can try in this case:
Remove the physical address extension patch if it is still active on your machine. I'll have more to say about this later.
Update your graphics drivers if possible by going to NVIDIA DRIVERS 260.99 WHQL
Remove the card that doesn't seem to be working and run off of the one card for the time being. Do you still get Code 43 or no acknowledgement that your monitor is hooked up to an nVidia card?
Isolate that card that seems to not be working. By itself, does it still not give you any image on your monitor?

Hello,
Earlier today I was simply reading a web page on my computer when all of a sudden it froze, many vertical strips of Horizonta lines appeared on my screen and so I turned off my computer. I turned it back on and the display seemed fine until the 'Starting Windows' message appeared when the lines then came back. This had not happened before.

I custom built my PC in may where everything was new apart from my graphics card (NVidia GeForce 9600 GSO) and my 600w psu. I have had my graphics card for a few years now (4 years) and so I am pretty confident that my graphics card has reached the end of its life. The psu is around 9 months old.

I tried to connect another monitor to the PC however the lines were even worse on the monitor making everything unreadable. I then reseated my graphics card and when I connected my original monitor back in nothing now displays. The screen is just black (standby). The graphics card also makes quite a bit of noise in comparison to the rest of the PC too. When the PC is turned on all the hardware and fans are working fine, the fan on the graphics card still runs too.

Is it a case of simply getting a new graphics card?
Thanks.

have a hd5770 graphics card and cant seem to get it installed on a fresh windows 7 ultimste 64 install, constantly come up with integrated graphics, have tried an nvidia gt240 in to see if that would work but no luck, any ideas on how to help?

A:cant switch from integrated graphics

You need to disable the on-board graphics in BIOS.

However, according to this;

your board does not have any onboard graphics.

Hello all
I recently received my new Dell laptop
I am still fiddling around but I saw that except my gt540m I have an integrated graphics card.
How do I know which is being used? And how do I know that my nvidia card is active when I am playing and my integrated when I am doing basic stuff.
thanks

Im not too advanced with the hardware side of computers, and was wondering if anyone could help me out.

I've bought a new pc and it comes with an integrated Geforce4 MX video card. Is it possible to remove this and buy a stand-alone graphics card. My pc comes with 512MB DDR RAM, but the video card uses 128MB of this memory, leaving me only with 384MB of RAM. If you can remove the card would the shared 128mb memory go bak to the 384mb and make it bak up to 512MB again.

Im grateful for any help

Yep,

If you've got an AGP Port.. you could simply buy a better AGP card and stick it in, you would have to disable your on-board VGA though... but that will still free up your lost RAM.

I had to format my computer change the hard drive and install windows XP from an old 2002 CD I had and now my computer is not recognizing my intel integrated graphics card. When I go on device manager there is no "display adapters" category at all and before it used to say what chipset I had under the general tab in system properties, and under the display tab in dxdiag, but now it doesn't say anything. How can I fix this?

Okay, So I have a Dell and it came along with an Intel Integrated Media 900, with a Intel® 82915G/82910GL Express Chipset Family. I am trying to get the latest drivers for the card and I have tried to install them numerous times. When it is installing, I get this error message:http://images.dx-h.com/files/23/Driver error.JPG

I have no idea if this is my computer, which I don't think it is because I just got this computer last week. I'm wondering if Intel goofed something up when they made the .exe or if something els happened.

Is there a motherbaord that offers integrated graphics within the socket am3/+ region?

A:AM3/+ Motherboard with Integrated Graphics

Yes there is quite a range, one that immediately springs to mind and at good value is the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AMD760G it offers AMD 3000 Radeon graphics but as im a NVIDIA user im not sure what it offers in terms of performance but any integrated graphics are going to be low-end compared to dedicated cards.

Im a bit of a Gigabyte Fanboy so i'd suggest any one of the AM3+ boards they offer with integrated graphics.

Another suggestion i could offer would be to go for one of AMD's new APU's which is a CPU/GPU in 1 chip theyre reasonably affordable and the motherboards that run them (FM1 or FM2 Sockets) are equally affordable.

But ultimately i would suggest along with many others to go for a dedicated graphics card as long as the board you have or are getting along with your power supply are equipped to run it, even if its a low end GT630.

Here is a link of a video card heirachy chart that helps determine performance of integrated video with dedicated that should help you make a decision.

i have a acer aspire x3400g with a integrated nivdia 9200 graphics.

i have a asus gt430 installed.

i play diable 3

would it be profitable to have integrated graphics turned on in the bios.

i set my bios to have it on with uma buffer size 512 (which is the 9200s ram).

would this offload textures and make fps better?

btw in device manager it is showing both gpu's.NVM IT INSTALLED THE 9200 ONCE I TURNED ONBOARD GRAPHICS ON IN THE BIOS. BUT ONCE I RESET MY COMPUTER ITS GONE. BUT ONBOARD IS STILL ON.
thanks

A:is it better to have integrated graphics on with gaming?

Hello sogone209,

Short answer, nope.

Long answer:-

Your integrated graphics card would actually reduce your performance by using up system RAM from your system that it'd have to permanently reserve for its own functionality.

What you've mentioned as the UMA buffer size is actually referring to the amount of system RAM you are allowing the integrated card to reserve from it. For example you have 4 GBs of RAM. You set the UMA buffer to 512 MB. You are telling the integrated card to take that amount of RAM from your system for its own functions. So in effect you only have 3.5 GB of RAM left for your system and applications.

Offloading textures and the like refers to SLI functionality which requires 2 dedicated cards like your Asus GT 430 to be installed in tandem.

In conclusion, switch off that integrated card, and use your dedicated card for optimal performance. Unless power conservation is important to you. But I believe that it doesn't really matter since you're gaming on a desktop.
