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. 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.
I built myself a new PC and everything was running fine. Then I decided to change the graphics card from an ASUS Radeon HD 6770 to an ASUS Radeon HD6850 1GB.Upon restart and every restart since, the Aero effects do not work. At first I just figured I hadnt got the right drivers. Games were working fine so I left it alone. Now I've updated all the drivers to the latest ones from the ATI website, 12.4, but the Aero effects still do not work.
I'm running it on my HP Pavilion g6, which has a Intel Core i3 firstname.lastname@example.org ghz, 4 gb RAM and both an ATI Radeon HD7670 and an Intel HD 3000 series video card.So the problem is that the aero effects are kinda laggy, for example when using the windows key+tab or when shuffling around the elements in the start menu. I know there is an option to select which video card runs a certain application( Configure switchable graphics), but how can i canfigure it so the windows uses the faster ATI card, rather than the Intel one?
EDIT: I also forgot to add that all the drivers are the newest versions.
i hope to get some advice for updating my video card before I install Windows 7. I ran Microsoft's upgrade advisor and was informed that my video card (ATI X1650) was not up to running Aero. I'd like to have that functionality but it is essential that I be able to have a card that runs dual DVI monitors, one of which, an Eizo ColorEdge is color-calibrated.
I'm not a gamer so that stuff is moot for me but the ability to maintain high resolution color-perfect monitors is critical for Photoshop apps (my main app).
With that background, what video cards do you think I should be considering?
I am considering upgrading to Windows 7. My current system is Pentium D @3 GHZ w/2 GB ram. Win 7 upgrade advisor tells me my NVIDIA GeForce 7300LE will not support Aero. Any advice on what graphics card would be a good upgrade would be appreciated.
I would like to upgrade my geforce 7600 GS and was looking at the 9800Gt series, as my card is a silent version I would really like another silent card, Ive had a look around and the only silent one I think will fit my mobo is a Sparkle 9800GT Silent Cool-pipe :
Model number : SF-PX98GT512D3-HPL Cool-pipe Graphics Processing : NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT Core Clock : 600MHz Memory Clock : 1800 MHz Memory Type : 512MB GDDR3 Memory Interface : 256-Bit Shader Clock : 1500 MHz Bus Type : PCI-Express 2.0 RAMDAC : 400 MHz This is the only one I think wil lfit the MSI neo FR board I have without obstructing the sata ports.
Is this card worth moving to from the 7600GS ? I use windows 7 home premium and the only games I play at present are call of duty 4 and call of duty modern warefare 2. I was thinkig that if this card is a better card, I can donate my card ot my daughters pc instead of the 7300GS that she uses.
I just recently upgraded Windows 7 Ultimate from Vista Home premium. When I "upgraded" though I chose to completly reinstall my OS.Anyways I used to have transparency, but when I try to get that same effect it says "The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver."and then when I try to troubleshoot it says "Video card driver doesn't support Aero effects" . I've tried the "Fix it" options, but that doesnt work. I just don't see how transperancy would work on vista but not with windows 7... do I seriously have to purchase a new video card?
I recently got new Leadtek WinFast GT 520 grapihic card, I bougth it because I don't use my PC for gaming or so, and after installing new OS ( Windows 7 x64 SP1) I don't have sound, speaker aren't detected, just HDMI outputs, and some kind of virtual spakers. I tried all kind of drivers, updates, enabled on board audio on motherboard in BIOS, anything I colud find online, I checked ports for speakers, even the speakers them selves, it's working. I tried with frend's graphic card, and with it I have audio.
I recently purchased HP Envy which comes with 7690M XT graphic card. The driver which came pre-installed is dated 28/11/2011. I've tried latest catalyst software to update but it gives error of unknown graphic card and driver not supported.
Currently I'm working on an rather old PC with an onboard graphic-chip. I just installed Win 7 and it works great - the only problem is, areo isn't working on this machine... and now I'm looking for an cheap graphic card that meets the necessary requirements for aero. I don't play games or use graphic programs, so I really don't need a good graphic card - all I want is areo to work. So, if there are any recommendations on which graphic card I can buy, I'd very much appreciate any hints!
This card is OK for me since I very very rare play in PC games, but I was wondering if I can improve my Windows 7 experience. As far as I know, Windows 7 uses DirectX v10, my built-in card uses only v9.
Also what I want to achieve is less CPU usage (when my x1250 unable to meet certain challenges in Windows 7 then for this calculations is uses CPU)
I don't want to buy powerful GPU like the newest graphic cards on the market, what I need is Eco-friendly (uses not too much Watt) better than currently mine graphic card.
I was thinking about, for example: Radeon 4670 or GeForce 9500GS but I'm not really sure if they are eco-friendly.
I started with Windows 7 Home Pr. last week, after using XP for about 6 years. I bought the new PC without a new graphic card and wanted to use my NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS until I have enough money to buy a new one. I use the PC only for the MS Flight Simulater X with 3 Monitors and the Matrox TripleHead2Go (Analog). The Screen is expanded over the 3 Monitors.First of all I mentioned, that there is no Driver from Matrox for Win7 matching with the TH2G, I got bad results in resolution and frames and so I tried different old Drivers from matrox and from NVIDIA (f.e. I tried Vista64-Driver).
No chance for better graphics, so I decided to buy a new card, the NVIDIA GTX460 2048MB. It works excellent with good resolution and frames, but now my problem starts.I have only installed the right driver from NVIDIA, no other one, but I didn't de-install any other.Now, when I fire up my PC, every day there is this damned Mini-Dump. Till now, only during starting, today first time during flying.After reboot the PC runs normal.I suppose it depends on my horrible trying with drivers, but I'm not sure how to delete or change which part.Hope you can see anything in the file, if there are more necessary questions,
this is a new computer, but had BSOD problems, so I reinstalled Windows 3 days ago. Today I was using graphic card based rendering engine, photoshop, Indesign, Itunes, etc, and I had my task management window open, but it had low memory and CPU usage. However it crashed saying:0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff800035fb9bc, 0xfffff880035d2638, 0xfffff880035d1e90)
My system installed he Windows 7 SP1 a week or so ago - immediately had a problem: my ATI 9600 graphics card stopped working with the upgraded driver giving the error message: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing (code 39). The legacy drivers from AMD/AT also did not work - so I am currently stuck with MS standard VGA driver and oval shaped circles at a resolution well below thy native resolution of my monitor. Feedback from MS is that the card is not supported (legacy), however, their Windows 7 hardware compatibility webpage shows the card to be compatible.
I bought my laptop awhile ago and it has 2 graphic card drivers in it. One Intel and one from NVIDIA. It all worked fine until I decided to upgrade my NVIDIA Graphic Card driver. I think this is the cause although it could easily be something else. Either way after the new installed driver there was no way to run ANY program with my NVIDIA card. It does get recognized in the "Device Manager" but no program seems to be able to acces the NVIDIA.So I decided to download the lastest driver from the Dell site and install it. As that was the driver version I used back when it was working but I still seem to have the same problem. I don't really know what causes this.
I tried running a performance test to see if this program could use the graphic card but I seem to have no luck. Accesing the NVIDIA Control Panel and setting the desired program (or the global options) to automaticly run with my NVIDIA Graphic Card above anything didn't seem to pay off. I have searched with google for awhile but it's hard to use google if you don't know what your looking for. I found some things but I can't even tell if there connected to this problem.
i have a big problem my graphic card HD4830 in Windows 7.i just installed Windows 7 my other drive ( D: )im downloaded latest drivers from ati and im installed driver 9.7 version . after im restart pc and problem still there cpu usage %100 i think graphic card driver is not correctly working ? but im sure im installed driver successfully. whatever if you know solution pls write there.
I ve been playing a lot of games without having any trouble with my graphic card .Last thing I remember is I was playing Deus Ex Human Revolution and i did finish itSome days after that while attempting to boot my pc it struggled the first 2 times ( my CPU lights have gone in 2 seconds ) then it boots successfully in the third time. My Monitor was turned on but no display .. First I think the problem might be in the VGA cable but it is not coz when i unplugged it and plug it in the default pin in the CPU, the monitor shows display .. So definitely the problem is with the graphic card . I dust cleaned it and insert it again , no breakthrough but the fan in the card is rotating . I figured that there is a mild problem in my SMPS . I ve red in an article that problems in the SMPS will affect the power supply to the video card . So the real problem is the SMPS ???? or the Graphic card
