Problem installing new graphics card on Emachine/onboard-graphics

Q: Problem installing new graphics card on Emachine/onboard-graphics

I'm having a problem others seem to encouter, but can't get it resolved. I bought a ATI Radeon 600X Pro 256MB/PCI-E card. I have an Emachine T6410 computer with built in ati xpress 200. Specs found herehttp://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=desktop&subcat=T-Series&model=T6410)

My problem is after installing the card my computer doesn't recognize the hardware. As soon as I put the card in, my monitor will not work. The computer boots up and the monitor has power, but no picture. The card fan is working...i can hear it. I take the card out and it works fine.

Here is what I have tried:
-Called emachines for support and after disabling my onboard graphics, still doesn't work, they say call ATI
-Tried support from ATI....no help, they say its the computer
-Tried disabling in BIOS, but it doesn't offer a selection for that. It also does't have a PNP feature. Only first initial display..which I tried on PCIEX
-Plug monitor to both card, and onboard.
-Check MSI website and I do have updated BIOS

I can tell that the onboard graphics are disabled due to large scale print. I tried uninstalling the drivers, but when i turn it on it detects and installs the built in graphics. I just can't get the monitor to work whenever the card is inserted. If it would work I could manually install the hardware and drivers. I'm thinking I need a different BIOS that would let me use PNP and disable onboard graphics??

Any help I would greatly appreciate...this is my first time to this website and I thought I would try it before taking my computer to a shop to see if they can fix it....Just scared of what they might charge since I only paid about $90 for the card.

Thanks in advance

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: Problem installing new graphics card on Emachine/onboard-graphics

An extreme option

As you do have the option of a working computer prior to installing the new card I would back up any files that are important to you..
Then, before I would pay someone else BIG bucks, I would put in the new card and try a fresh install of windows. Force it to recognise your new card. The drivers that Windows will pick should suffice until the install is done and you can then install the card specific drivers from your disk.
This is given ONLY as a choice. I am not sure this will solve your problem but IT IS something this cheap bas____ would try before paying someone else.

Good Luck and check back, maybe someone else will contribute a better idea.

Hello there, I am doing some work for a friend on his new-ish HP computer. The specs it shipped with are:

HP Pavillion p6531p
Aloe H-RS880-uATX motherboard
AMD Athlon II X4 635 processor
6GB DDR3 memory
Integrated ATI radeon HD 4200 graphics
250 watt Bestec power supply

He wanted to upgrade the graphics for gaming, and ended up purchasing an XFX ATI Radeon HD 5670 brand new. Because it recommended a 400W power supply, he also purchased a second-hand-but-tested L&C brand 450W power supply.

He first replaced the power supply and reconnected all the elements of the motherboard and the hard disk and optical drive, and then booted up, and everything worked and displayed just fin with the onboard graphics. BUT...After installing the XFX ATI Radeon HD 5670 in the PCI-e slot he hooked the monitor to the DVI ouput on the card and rebooted. the computer appeared to reboot normally and all fans and lights were running appropriately, but no signal at all during the whole process from the graphics card. Not too unusual, right? But...

He powered down, took the graphics card back out and reconnected his monitor to the onboard graphics, then booted back up. This time, even though it had booted successfully in this configuration just a few minutes previously with perfect monitor signal, he got the "no signal" from the monitor.

We have since worked on this problem quite a bit to the extent of our abilities. The XFX card works like a dream when inserted into my computer. So ... Read more

Hi!

My name is Apoorva. I am from India.

Now I would like to know the basic difference in terms of performance for an onboard graphics card and an external graphics card for a Laptop.

What could be a major difference?
Also, for Onboard graphics, it is said on all the branded website that the size of it is upto 384MB shared.

So, say for instance, if I go for an external graphics card for a new laptop which I am planning to purchase and the size of this external graphic card is 256MB or 128MB and as Onboard graphic card already provides 384 MB shared memory, therefore the question is that how could that external graphics card sizing 256 MB deliver better performance as compared to Onbard graphics which sizes 384 MB shared?

Also, how are the new laptops launched by HP in India in terms of performance, mobility & stability?
The Laptop which I am looking for falls under 6700 series and is a business series laptop.
Waiting eagerly for a reply...

Hi all,

Video card appears to be reaching the end of the road, with regular crashes of 0x117 type. After extensive attempts to fix it, the conclusion is that the card needs to be replaced.

I plan to acquire a completely new computer when I go overseas in 8 days time. Until then, a band-aid solution occurred to me to last this week: use the onboard graphics integrated in the motherboard instead of the (failing) discrete graphics card.

Some background info:
Motherboard is GA-G31M-ES2L
Graphics card is nVidia 9800GT
Current display interface is DVI connected to graphics card. VGA cable available.

My method is:
1. Update motherboard (GA-G31M-ES2L) drivers.
2. Uninstall discrete graphics card (nVidia 9800GT) drivers.
3. Reboot and access BIOS.
4. Via BIOS, disable graphics card and enable onboard graphics.
5. Save and shutdown.
6. Disconnect DVI monitor cable from graphics card, also from monitor.
7. Connect VGA monitor cable to motherboard, also to monitor.
8. Boot

I would lke your opinion on this planned course of action which potentially could be nigh unfixable.

A:Enabling onboard graphics/Disabling graphics card method

That is just how you should do that, it's unremarkable.

Should not be a problem at all, it's routine, you could add another card later and be just fine after disabling on-board again.

Hello there, I am looking for a dirt cheap, Windows 7 suitable graphics card for use with a PC designed for multimedia purposes (watching films, listening to music etc). I would like to be able to use the full visual effects Windows 7 has to offer. It must have an S-video output and be compatible with the Asus M3A78-CM Motherboard. I have 1 PCI Express x 1 slot free and 2 x PCI 2.2 slots free.

Please provide some suggestions, doesn't have to be brand new.

Either that, or something like the Gadmei XGA/VGA LCD TV BOX. I want to connect my PC with the motherboard mentioned previously to my CRT TV (Panasonic TX-28PL4 Quintrix). The motherboard has onboard graphics via dvi and vga outputs. The TV has an S-VHS plug on the front, as well as RCA Audio/Video sockets. On the rear, it has 1 spare scart input.

What are your thoughts?

A:Graphics Card/Onboard Graphics for Media Centre PC

the graphics card listed in my specs may only be 64MB, but it surprisingly runs aero.
If that seems to be not quite what you're looking for, another card I would recommend is the nvidia 8400GS. It may be 512MB, but thats about as high as it's specs go, but you will need a more powerful PSU (300W+). The 8400GS is about ?30 and a vga to RCA adapter seems to be about ?5 (i recommend you buy the adapter before the card).
The one in my specs just has a VGA port, but the 8400GS has vga, dvi and hdmi (i think the hdmi may need some further cabling in the case, not sure though)

NB (the card listed in my system specs may actually be the GeForce 7200GS, all system information programs tell me that it could be both and there's no sticker on it. all i know for (kinda) certain is that its 64MB )

A:Onboard graphics detected not graphics card

Hi , The option is the one where the nvidia card and intel on-board are shown, and the BIOS should select the nvidia card as priority if it can, and has a choice.
It's sometimes known as 'Primary Video' & the option is called PEG.
Make sure you save the settings when you exit or they won't be changed from before.

My computer (a Dell Inspiron 620 desktop) has a VGA port and an HDMI port built onto the motherboard for integrated graphics. I have recently installed an Nvidia GeForce 630 2GB dedicated graphics card, and it has 2 DVI ports and 1 mini-HDMI port.

I have a DVI monitor and a VGA monitor (DVI-VGA adapter used) connected to the graphics card. I was trying to connect a projector to the VGA port on the onboard graphics, but I couldn't get it to use the onboard graphics with the card installed. In BIOS > Advanced > Graphics Options, there is one setting: Intel Multiple Monitor something. It has two options: Auto and Disabled (currently Auto). Its in-BIOS description states that it can use both onboard and dedicated cards to run multiple monitors. However, no luck.

Windows has shown a third monitor in the display settings, with a bunch of "Attempt VGA Connection" options. Selecting one and choosing Extend Desktop opens a "Unable to Save Settings" error. Ubuntu does nothing to recognize anything.

Is it possible to use both the onboard and Nvidia graphics together? Or am I better off buying a mini-HDMI to VGA adapter and connecting it to the Nvidia card and the projector?

Thanks for reading all my extended description.

PS: I would like to get this working in Ubuntu (currently 13.04), but getting it in Windows and Ubuntu would be a bonus!

I want to know if it is possible to install a seperate graphics card without disabling the onboard one. The reason I ask that is that cannot get anything from the onboard one, or will I have to replace the motherboard? If I have to do that will I lose everything I have on my PC. If I can replace would I then be able to disable the onboard one?

I was wondering is it possible to use onboard graphics from my motherboard and use my graphics card at the same time? Also my motherboard states that the onboard graphics is dependent on the cpu. What exactly does this mean how does my cpu effect the onboard graphics

A:Can I use onboard graphics with graphics card

No, usually one can't use both onboard and add-in graphics adapters, by adding the plug-in card the onboard automatically gets disabled, at least on all the computers I've done it with.

Some newer CPUs do have things combined such as AMD CPUs that include ATI video, usual quick explanation of making things that way is for speed. AMD owns ATI Graphics.

A:Two monitors on a emachine with built in graphics card

Depending on your PC this may be impossible as the motherboard may disable the onboard video as soon as you try to use an external video card. This is most common with older chipsets that have AGP video onboard and an AGP expansion slot. Usually it is recommended just to get an external video card with multiple monitor support (many low priced ATI/Nvidia cards support this)

No one is going to be able to provide specifics without knowing the specs on your computer, but the first place to try to mess with settings is to go into your BIOS at boot and see if it has options for picking/enabling your on board video.

I have recently purchased an nVidia Quadro NVS 200 card because I wish to have a desktop which will span 2 TFT screens, other than that my graphics needs are not demanding.

When I install the card all seems OK but when I install the driver my computer becomes very unstable and the monitors repeatedly shut themselves down. The monitor manufacturer says this is because the monitor is trying to protect itself.

The nVidia tech support people are at a loss. I have latest versions of everything, BIOS has been tweaked, motherboard driver updated (SIS), etc. They even sent me a replacement card.

I now operate my computer with the card disabled in Device Manager. This is OK except that I want a desktop which will span two monitors, not the same desktop on each monitor.

I am having a problem installing a G-Force FX 5200 PCI, graphics card. The card is installed in my computer as it was working many months ago but stopped working, I have only now decided to try to fix the problem. (the computer had and is currently using the built-in 3D card an Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller.

The problem is that the computer doesn't seem to detect that the G-Force card is there. I am having another problem with it continously detecting an ethernet controller (coming up with found new hardware - ethernet controller) even though my network and everything is working fine and it can never install this ethernet it's supposed to have found. I think the problem might be that it is confusing the G-Force 3D card with an ethernet somehow.

Interestingly though when I went to drivershq.com and ran the driver detective thing it did detect the G-Force graphics card (I didn't register though because you have to pay I just ran the test program thing), so I know it's plugged in correctly etc.

Please help if you can, thanks.

When I go to install it, it is telling me it cannot find the driver. I think this is happening because I uninstalled windows Vista, and that graphics card is only compatible with VISTA.

If the onboard graphics are not working, how are you getting this message on the screen in the first place? In other words, if you are getting this message, the onboard graphics are not dead. When you installed Windows XP, you should have gone to the PC manufacturer's website to locate the motherboard chipset, sound, LAN, graphics, etc., drivers. If the PC is a custom or self built computer, then you would go to the motherboard manufacturer's website for these drivers. Anytime you install any version of Windows you should be doing this.

Try doing it now.

If you have an onboard video card and then you install in a graphics card, will they work together? I'm getting a motherboard with a Geforce 6150, and a Geforce 7600GT. Will they work together, or will the Geforce 7600GT just do everything?
 

A:Onboard Video + Graphics Card?

The 7600GT will do everything. But that's ok if you want dual monitors because the 7600GT can support 2 screens.

Hi All,

Is it possible to switch from onboard graphics and 4850. Now I am using Intel 945GCC motherboard and having HD4850 graphics card. I want to use 4850 while playing games and onboard graphics card for regular usage, So that I can save some power.
 

A:Using Onboard graphics card along with 4850

No, and the power requirement for the 4850 isnt taxing anyway.

Probably a dumb question (sorry) but trying to do some homework before my new system and monitor arrive.

Monitor (Dell U2713HM) will have multiple input possibilities, including DVI-D, Displayport and HDMI.

Graphics card (GeForce GTX 745) will have DVI-D and HDMI outputs.

Computer will also have onboard Displayport 1.2 output.

I assume I am going to connect the monitor and graphics card directly via DVI-D, but my questions are these:

Is there going to be any difference between using the onboard DisplayPort vs the graphics card DVI-D connection? If I use the onboard Displayport as the connection to the monitor, is this bypassing my graphics card altogether or is the graphics card working in conjunction with the DisplayPort in some way?

Thanks.
 

A:Which to use? Onboard DisplayPort or DVI-D on graphics card?

Personally, if you have a dedicated card then use the ports on that card. I would assume (only an assumption without knowing more detailed system specs) that the onboard display port is associated with an integrated APU / GPU setup.

As far as DVI-D and HDMI go, they are essentially the same as far as graphics are concerned, the main difference is that HDMI also carries audio (DVI-D is only video). If you have speakers connected to normal audio ports then it makes no difference. If you are using a screen / TV with its own speakers then HDMI is probably a better option as it means less cables.

Hi,

I have a Compaq SR5000 desktop with windows vista home premium and I wanted to install a second graphics card to use a 2nd monitor. I installed the 2nd card, however it automtically disables the onboard card which I don't it to do.When I look in device manager the onboard card doesn't appear anywhere or I can't get it to appear. There is an option in the BIOS to choose the main display , either th eonboard, pci or pci-E, so obviously I've tried the onboard option, but it still is disabled. I've got the drivers for the onboard card and tried to install them while having the 2nd graphics card in but that didn't work. Is there anything I can do to get this working or is it just not possible, any advice appreciated.
Thks.
 

A:How to enable onboard graphics card

This behavior is pretty typical on most systems. Generally if you want to run multiple monitors you can do it from the same graphic device, so in this case off the new add-in graphics card. Does the new graphics card not have multiple outputs? What is the exact card you both and what connections do each of the monitors have?

Hey guys:

Sorry unfortunately I am not very computer savvy (and my comma key is jammed; sorry again). I have been messing with this computer for weeks with no luck.

I don't know exactly what kind of computer this is but it is a Gateway and it says 812 GM; Windows XP OS. My motherboard is an MS-6741 (also says N1996; not sure what that is). The card I am trying to get to work is an nVidia GeForce 6200 LE.

Let me start by clarifying the problem: for a long time the card worked great. I have a habit of leaving my computer in sleep mode for a while and one day I heard a very loud pop (possibly related?) and the next day my video card didn't work anymore. The onboard graphics still work great -- UNTIL I go to the Netflix site (I use this computer primarily to watch videos so this is a problem). As soon as the website loads the mouse gets jumpy and so does video (audio is flawless). Even Hulu works perfect--Netflix is the only problem. I tried upgrading Flash and Silverlight -- no luck there. Not sure what else to do.

So this leads me to my real problem. I think the computer is reading the card (occasionally) because when I have the card in but VGA connected to onboard graphics (forgive my lack of diction..) there usually is no display. I take the card out and the display is fine. I connect the VGA (also tried S-video) to the card and still no display. The computer is booting up fine; it's just the dang card.

SO here is what my Googling has led me to thus far:

Well, I didn't think I had the latest driver or whatever for my gfx card, so I went to install a newer version.

I uninstalled the older one with the Add/Remove programs thing from XP, and restarded my comp like it told me to. When I try installing the newer version, this message pops up:

Setup was unable to find components that can be installed on your current hardware or software configuration. Please make sure you have the required hardware or software.Click to expand...

And then I click OK and nothing happens.

Now I'm not even sure what gfx card driver I am supposed to be installing, because when I run "dxdiag" is says N/A where all my gfx info is supposed to be! All I know, is that it is ATI... I'm also not sure now that I didn't have the newest version as it was. =( Also, keep in mind I'm not too good with comps, so please be specific when telling me how to do something. =x

I have a Fujistu Lifebook N3510, if that helps.

Please help. This is a bit frustrating... =/

Recently purchased and installed a new graphics adapter, and since then, see occasional wavy lines in the display. Ran Device Manager on the system and note the manufacturer, model, and version number of the device driver for the graphics adapter. Then, checked the adapter manufacturer’s Web site and discover that there is a new driver available for the adapter. After downloading and installing the driver update, restarted the system. The system appears to start normally, except that the graphical interface has been replaced by incomprehensible noise. Due to inability to see the display, unable to work with the system. What should be done to return the computer to an operational state?

I'm really new to graphics cards, so please bear with me. I installed a PNY NVIDIA Geforce GT 610 after experiencing integrated video problems on my HP P7-1202 system. It works OK, but I get a pop up message saying: "The AMD VISION Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your AMD graphics driver, or enable your AMD adapter using the Displays Manager." Huh??? I do not understand. It seems to me like the message relates to the integrated graphics system. What do I need to do?

A:Problem after installing Geforce GT 610 graphics card

Check your BIOS settings for a checkbox that will turn off the onboard graphics card.

Hi guys, I'm a noob here, and was just wondering if there was any way to change my onboard graphics card in my laptop? My laptop is a Acer Aspire 5520, with the default Nvidia Geforce 7000m.

I'm usually alright with it, but I'm trying to start playing serious games (Arkham Asylum ), and I get this error "1x32 fb render target issue".

I really hope this is more of a software issue than anything.

Thanks,

Have you looked to see if your current graphics chipset is capable of running your games. That error IS usually a software issue and you may not have to change at all
IF you have to change, it isnt the kind of change that most laptop owners (unless pretty handy and unless you dont mind voiding your warranty) can or should do.

Would anyone happen to know if the onboard video should be disabled in the BIOS when installing a new graphics card in a PCIExp slot. If it is left enabled, the PC should find the new card and boot from it, correct?
 

A:Graphics card and onboard (Intel) Video

yes it should auto detect your setup...if it does not THEN you might need to enable/disable in bios

I have a 1 yr-old Dell Dimension 5150 with on-board graphics and sound. I have recently purchased a GeForce 6600 128MB PCI-E graphics card to try and beef it up a bit.

I have inserted the card correctly into the PCI-E slot but my problem is in installing the driver. I'm certain that I have downloaded the correct driver, but as I run the set-up program I get the following error message:

The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.

And that's it - all my hopes of playing a decent game dashed at the first hurdle. Is there anyone who may be able to help?

Many thanks
