Preferred Solution: Can I change the graphics card on y510p

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.)


Why is it so hard to pop-out the graphics card on my Y510P? Has anyone else seen this problem?

Just wanted to let others know about the SLI Graphics Card. All of a sudden my pc shutdown while viewing a Youtube video. I smelled some weird burning smell coming from the computer. Wouldn't boot, eventually I pulled the second graphics card on the right side of the pc. Looked at it and there was major burn spot on it. Started up the PC and it was fine without the graphics card. There must be some sort of overheating issue and they are defective. I rarely play games on this pc and this occured simply watching a youtube video which seems really odd. I do have two monitors hooked up to the system.

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?
*Note - I also forgot to mention I did change the BIOS option from UMA back to discrete

Hey Everyone, I've recently noticed my laptop slowing as I played games like h1z1 on the lowest setting. Eventually, I would get error messages about my GPU when the game would crash. I noticed my drivers were out of date and SLI was also not enabled. I have since updated the drivers and enabled SLI but I still get many of the same problems.  The laptop has two GeForce GT 750M's. I downloaded MSI afterburner and it shows both graphics cards at 135/405MHz at rest. But while gaming, the second graphics card remains at that same amount and relatively the same temperature while graphics card number one goes to about 1058/2499MHz and 75-90 degrees C temperatures. I've also taken out the ultrabay with graphics card number 2 out and put it back in to make sure it wasn't loose. I honestly don't know what any of the data really means, but I'm really hoping to get this fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Let me know if I can provide any more information!

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.

Ok so I have just ordered my computer, which will arrive in a few days, but I would like to change the graphics card to something more powerful when I recieve the PC.

My specs are:

Motherboard: UNKNOWN (that's the problem)
CPU: AMD Bulldozer FX-4100 -- Quad Core 3.6Hz -- Overclocked to 4.0GHz
GFX Card: ATI Radeon HD 6670 1GB
RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistic 1333Mhz DDR3
Hard Drive: 320GB

I do not know the power supply's wattage, or the motherboard, as the seller did not specify these, and I haven't got the PC yet.

I would like to replace the graphics card to either a ASUS NVIDIA GTX550 TI PCI-E Graphics Card - 1GB


SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition PCI-e 3.0 Graphics Card - 1 GB

Now I am very new to gaming on computers, I know how to replace the graphics card, but I do not know whether it will fit in the slots, or whether it is compatible for my power supply. 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.

I have a HP Pavilion dv9753eo Notebook PC, and I was wondering if it was possible to change the graphics card of one of these babies..
The current one doesn't live up to the standards of gaming these days.. (8400m GS Nvidia GeForce)

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?

I am trying to decide if I should get a new graphics card to be able to play games better. What do you think? If I do replace it, how would I go about it?

I had bought a PCI Express Card and put it in so I would have more USB Ports, it worked till I rebooted, and since then, Windows has not recognized it, so anything I plug into one of the USB Ports does not work. I would hate for the same thing to happen to a graphics card.

Hi everyone, I have been using a Vostro 3568 (i5 7200, 4gb ram, AMD R5 M430) for 1 month. However, after I updated AMD software, the details of my graphics card changed. From AMD R5 430 to HD 8500M. 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.

Over some time, I have had problems here and there watching videos, but nothing major. Recently, I bought a new game, and the graphics are just terrible. I set everything to low, everything to high, custom, random. I tried everything, and the game looks so bad. Pixels are easily noticeable, and the frame rate is bad. The video skips as well, when moving around in the game. I am wondering if it is possible to replace my graphics card with a new one, either the same or an upgrade.

I've never messed with graphics cards before and don't have a clue, please can someone give me a hand...

My brother tells me that his computer is no longer giving a graphics output, totally blank screen, and that when it boots it gives 1 long and 3 short beeps.

It has an AWARD BIOS and the POST beep code apparently means that there is a problem with the graphics card. Since I know nothing about graphics cards I did a bit of research to find out about the subject before I opened it up. I read up about AGP and PCI cards etc... The computer is quite old so I expect a PCI card.

I open it up and it is a PCI card, so I give it a blow and a wiggle, still no display, just beeps. However, I noticed that the motherboard (an M6TAB, if that means anything) does have an AGP slot with something in it. I get confused. :suspiciou

Can anyone tell me what this card in the AGP slot is and what it does?
Is it another graphics card?
Am I correct in assuming the graphics card is broken?

The little sticker with a picture of a monitor says to plug the monitor into the PCI card, but the AGP card has the same port (expect it doesn't have an input). I'd never noticed the port before and didn't ever try the monitor in it.

As a separate question, why do both cards have 20 pin ports on them?

One card might be a 3D Voodoo Banshee, I think???

my son says the intel graphics card not good enough for him playing steam game,can i change to a better graphics card,and if so any special things i need to do.and can it only take a certain card

A:atc-603-eb11,can you change the graphics card

Hi juice58,
There is a PCI express slot available on the ATC-603, so it is possible from that aspect. There are a couple other considerations that need to be made.
Game Requirements - So Steam is a digital distribution for different games. You can have a Steam Account, and have 1, 2, 50, 1000 different games on it. You'll need to understand which game your son is interested in playing. You can google "Steam (game name)" and it will take you to a Steam Page for that game that has system requirements. Here is an example: http://store.steampowered.com/app/570/
Power Consumption - I show that this PC has a 300w Power Supply (PSU). You'll need to find a card that meets this specification or a bigger PSU may be needed to run a higher end card. Based on the game requirements, a video card that requires a higher video card could need more than your current PSU can support.
Power Connections - Most video cards require a separate connection from the PSU, these are 6 (2x3) or 8 (2x4) pin connectors. Here is a picture for some older content, but could help you visualize it. https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/zotac-geforce-gtx-480,9.html
I would recommend looking at a GTX 750ti as it is a smaller card that I don't believe requires a Power Connector. This will run most if not all games (it might require lowering the settings on some games to get a good frame rate).
Hope this helps,Cory

I am wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I am running Windows 8 64-bit with an old Nvidia 8800GTX card. I have a new HD 7970 card. When I put the new card in, I can't get the OS to boot. It just says "Windows ecountered a problem" and will just do this over and over. I can't preinstall the ATI drivers before I put the card in. Can anyone offer some advice? Thanks.

A:Cannot change graphics card from Nvidia to AMD

You have to uninstall all the old NVIDIA stuff first. This includes the drivers and all software. Once you are sure you are clean, then change the cards and boot into win 8. Once there, you can install your new ATI drivers.

Also, does overclocking a GPU void your warrenty?

A:How hard is it to change a graphics card?

It is very simple. What you do to take out the 5770 you apply in reverse for the 5850.. don't forget to plug in the power cord for the card! As far as overclocking your GPU voiding your warranty... it is a very debatable issue as most manufacturers give you the program to overclock. Though a stable system always runs at stock clocks.

A:How to change graphics card and drivers?

What exact pc do you have? Motherboard..

It solely depends on your motherboard on which video card you should get..

Because of type of connection and speed it will handle..

In my opinion I would go nvidia over amd, but it's just solely based on my experience with nvidia over amd cards always having to change or have things fixed in games updates..

People have many problems with video card incompatible issues so once you pick out a video card you will need to use google and read reviews of it with your specific motherboard and look for people having problems.. Usually you will see many posts of people complaining about problematic video cards and your motherboard.. So obviously stay away from those..

I tried adding a second older Nvidia graphics card into my desktop computer. (I was seeing if I could use it via PCI pass-through in a virtual machine.) My Windows 7 Home Premium OEM (on a custom built pc) didn't like that, disabled the original Nvidia graphics card, and tried to use the new card by default but the display was stuck on a low resolution. I removed the second graphics card but Windows 7 didn't automatically revert to using the first card on reboot, so I had to reinstall the Nvidia driver for it, after which everything was ok... except that Windows 7 said I had to reactivate it.

I have previously read that changing the gpu shouldn't affect the activation status, but in this case the activation seems to be dependent on the graphics card.

So my question is: Why is my Windows 7 installation so finicky about the graphics card?

Hello there everyone.

My current computer specs are located in my signature. Ive bee thinking about this for a while, but is it possable to somehow change an S-VIDEO output on a graphics card to an input? Im assuming everything is output on my card atm but I would like to try and hook up my nintendo Wii to my LCD monitor. I have an adapter which converts YPbPr to s-video cable so I can hook it up to the graphics card. I know there are VGA-YPbPr converter out there but i dont have the money atm lol... Basically is there a way to somehow configure the graphics card so that it can view my wii? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading

A:Graphics card -- Change output to input?

I'm gonna go with no.

The way I imagine it the wiring could be adapted and re-soldered to the board to allow it, but the chip would still not know what to do with the signal, and it would probably fry.

If anyone knows anything I don't here I'd love to hear it, but it sounds grim to me.

Easier would probably;y be a modulator to use from the Wii to the monitor.
