Graphic Cards :: First Generation I7 Mobile HD Graphics Compatibility With Win 8 / 8.1
Jul 24, 2014
I have a notebook with first generation i7 processor. It comes with windows 7 home premium pre installed and I would like to upgrade it to windows 8 or 8.1. But Intel's latest HD Graphics v220.127.116.11.2993 (2/19/2013) is only compatible with windows 7 as they mentioned. Also my manufacturer was stop providing drivers for the latest operating systems after windows 7 for my model. Can I still update my O/S with the above driver?
My laptop has Mobile Intel R 4 Series Express Chipset Family, and now I am using Windows 8. Problem is I can't install Intel graphics media accelerator driver that was been used when I was using Windows 7. Problem says "this computer does not need the minimum requirement of installing software."
I Know that Windows 8 doesn't support this program. Before i have Windows 8 but i had to format. Now i dont' find how to install it. How can i install Graphics Media Accelerator of Mobile Intel R Series Express Chipset Family?
My Sapphire AMD HD 7870 just bit the dust so it has been sent back with an RMA. I had hoped to replace it with an ASUS AMD HD 3850 but Windows 8.1 will not work with it. There is an error message on a blue screen something about a header (I don't have the exact error message today).
I suspected it was a driver problem so uninstalled the existing driver and tried to install the latest AMD one. I can uninstall OK but as soon as I reboot the Microsoft driver installs itself giving me no opportunity to install the AMD one.
Problem: Tried to hook up my new nvidia video card, powered on the computer. No display. Unseated the video card, switched the cable back to the onboard connection, powered on, booted into BIOS, and I did not see any option for disabling Onboard or switching to PCI-E. So, I booted into Windows 8 and disabled the onboard graphics there. I then installed the video card physically into the computer and powered on. Still no display. I unseated the graphics card and plugged back into the onboard once again and now I only get display up until POST is finished then the display is turned off (I only assume this is because I disabled the Intel HD onboard graphics in the OS). But I tried to boot to miniXP from HIRENS only to find out I cannot boot to the CD! This is ingenious (sarcasm noted), so I need to figure out how to get this very limited machine to boot to a CD to get into MINIXP so I can reenable the onboard.
I am currently using Windows 7 32-bit and when I did a clean install of Windows 8 Pro on my PC, I noticed that there was no smooth 3D Graphics nor full-screen mode in DOS mode (the cmd.exe prompt) on my PC. I have an "Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family" built-in display adoptor on my PC. Any workaround for this problem (except for buying a new graphics card)? And can I also install Win 8.1 RTM on my PC?
I have windows 8 on a Dell LATITUDE D620 everything works fine except that what my graphics card is i have tried everything to find out what it is including taking off the back of the laptop and what i think is the graphics card but i dont know it says on it Hylinx Made in korea. i need to update my graphics card drivers in order to play a game that i have but i need a way to download the right driver from the maker's website but i dont know who the maker is
I have just put an additional 8gb of ram into my machine and am now sitting at 16gb ram but i did not notice any difference on my graphics during games. i have the AMD a6-5200 APU processor which has the integrated radeon hd 8400 graphics.
I'm wondering if there are any settings adjustments i can do to make the graphics card run faster. I mean i have 16gb of ram, shouldnt that be a lot of shared ram for the graphics card?
When I installed the Video card, I either disabled, or uninstalled, the Intel HD 3000 Video adapter. I am now having issues with the card and wanted to try using the Intel graphics, before replacing the card, but they are no where to be found. "Scan for hardware changes" produces nothing.
They do not show up under display adapters in Device Manager, so I can't enable/install them. I d/l the last 2 versions of drivers form Intel, neither will install -

I have an AMD HD 7870 based graphics card working with Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. I want to check which graphics modes are supported (not just by the currently connected monitor). Is there a method or utility available which interrogates the graphics card to list the graphics modes supported?
I have a notebook pc that comes with windows 7 from factory. I would like to install windows 8 in my machine. It has integrated intel hd graphics chip and separate nvidia geforce 420m graphic card. I heard switchable graphics are not working fine with windows 8. Is that true? BTW my system manufacturer isn't providing drivers that compatible with windows 8. Whatever windows 8 upgrade assistant says already installed drivers also compatible with windows 8 and individual hardware manufactures has windows 8 compatible drivers. So, what should I do? Windows 8 upgrade is useless for me?
So I could not get my graphics card to register while disabling my integrated Radeon Graphics card to move to my other card so I found a article saying that "You need to disable integrated graphics in your BIOS" So I did that...... and now my screen is completely black and i get no video input.
Basically as of two nights ago opening tabs in internet explorer and trying to run Adera I have been getting this crash anytime seemingly a certain type of video/media tries to play? My event log shows this starting literally with trying to get through a cutscene in Adera and has been happening since.

I have two Events.
Event 4101 "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."and Event 4109 "Application Adera.exe has been blocked from accessing Graphics hardware." "Application iexplore.exe has been blocked from accessing Graphics hardware."
After certain update of my graphics card driver I no longer have a video playback on my video players (including WMP), besides VLC. All the other video player are just able to play the sound of the video file, Nut not the video (the screen just stays black).The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now!
I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed. As I mentioned I didn't have this problem before,, with a previous versions of the AMD graphics card driver. This happened to my laptop a while ago already,, Since I have this problem I updated my video drivers 5 or 6 times at least, and no change so far !!!
As I mentioned I have the problem for some time already, during this time I re-installed my Windows couple of times, plus I even changed the version of the windows (7 to 8), for the moment I have the last version of video driver installed, I haven't installed ANY codecs.
I can probably find out from which update of a graphic card driver it started to happen and install the previous version, but I don't wanna miss out on the benefits of the driver updates, since I can still play normally videos on VLC (Only! cuz its probably have integrated codecs?!)
All the other graphic card related tasks are perfectly normal, I play games and so on.
my graphics card, Nvidia GT650 is not ready for UEFI installation and I have no way to flash the bios. If I boot using legacy bios, install the card, then can I flash the card BIOS and then return to UEFI booting?
The card is currently not installed and I have no other system to use to flash the cards bios.
Well I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 and ran the WEI test from an elevated C prompt, and it seems to have taken a dive in the graphics and gaming areas as opposed to the WEI I ran last fall with Windows 8 installed. I have no clue as to why or what to do about it. The machine runs well. I did an SFC/ Scannow to check for errors and it was good.
Semi-new HP DV7 Notebook. Display adapters : Intel HD Graphics 4000......NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M
I have been getting these errors in Event Viewer intermittently, every 1-2 weeks since upgrading to Windows 8.1 . I have an HP m6-1158 (specifications linked).
I had to get rid of my last computer because of constant BSODs because I changed out the graphics drivers so often. That's why I'm reluctant to do it again. A friend advised me to do it only if there's a problem, otherwise leave them alone. If I do update them, he said, it's best to go through the computer manufacturer. Last time when my computer failed, I installed drivers from AMD, so I have been avoiding theirs and Intel's websites.
With this system, that I've had since May of last year, I haven't been able to update the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 with this Windows 8 driver or this Windows 8.1 driver. Each time I tried, I got an error that my computer does not meet the necessary specifications. Therefore I left it alone and the only driver installs recorded in Device Manager for it are from when I bought the system in May 2013 and the 8.1 update in October.
The Radeon driver is from 2012 and came with my computer. According to Device Manager, it reconfigured or reinstalled for 8.1 but the driver version has not changed. I have not had any major issues with gaming performance. I tested Far Cry 3, which runs great.
I recently installed the game Papers. After constant crashes on startup, I contacted support, who advised me to change the AMD switchable graphics options for the game to High Performance. After that, it runs fine. That leads me to think that there is an issue with the Intel driver.
I have recently Bought hp envy M6 ,1003tx, comes with
Intel Core i5-3210M AMD-Radeon-HD-7670M and Pre - installed win 8
i tried a Lot of methods on it , so that i can swith works perfectly Now after Unsuccessful attempts , i Thought i should got to win 7 ,, So Now i have win 7 but somehow my divers are for 8, so i still can't change..
i recently had installed amd monitor,, and tried to play crysis 3 with low-mid setting -- it had poor performance,, But amd monitor was showing am using 100% of gpu...
My computer is hp envy dv6 7280sf notebook with 2 GPUs intel graphics HD 4000 and Nvidia Gefoce 630 M running windows 8 64x.
After making an free upgrade online for windows 8.1 which run successfully, both gpus were ok...
But after receiving a windows update with new drivers for intel graphics 4000 gpu , after install and restart , the computer freezes on blank black screen at windows startup with no mouse or anything only backlight.
So safemode was succeful but i figured that the update for windos update was the cause and graphics drivers were installed so i removed the drivers for intel graphics and itried to reboot the computer so the restart was succeful but the intel graphics card was unistalled and no drivers were automatically installed so i tried to download and install the drivers from hp and intel website for windows 8.1 however the install fails.
Automatic install from device manager failed both online and from computer and even from manual driver selection.
So therefore the install failed in safe mode , and the high def audio device ( on screen audio possibly) failed and the device was not recongnized (no drivers installed) so i'm stuck without anydrivers for the integrated gpu and the games are no longer able to run normally even if the nvidia card is on.
I tried downloading an installing Windows 8 drives but it failed to install also , for instance any new install of drovers seems to fail for me even for external usb hard drive.
Here is the problem... everything boots just fine and runs with 2 of the GPU's installed. I have the latest AMD 13.12 drivers, and the AMD APP SKD installed. When I add the 3rd GPU though, windows will auto detect it as a Radeon 7900 with the caution sign, AND/OR a r9 200 series card, also with the caution sign, most times BOTH. Then it randomly freezes the system. A couple of times I got it to run long enough just by luck I guess, to install the 13.12 drivers on the 3rd GPU, but then in a few minuites the system would freeze again.
2 GPU's run just fine, the problem only shows up when the 3rd card is installed, and it happens on any of the 4 16x slots, or both 1x slots on the MOBO. It doesn't matter if the GPU's are directly on the MOBO, or on 1x16 risers. There are plenty of folks running this set up with up to 6 GPU's, so I know it can be done, but I must be missing something somewhere in the windows set up.
I've got a bit of a strange issue that I haven't had with previous OSes on this PC. I'm running a Dell OptiPlex 380 with Win 8 x64 at the office and I have to run 2 video cards for all of my screens. I have a GeForce 8400GS in the PCI-E slot and a GeForce 6200 in the PCI slot.
Previous to the Win 8 install, it worked fine. Booted exactly as I had shut it off. Now, with 8 - it's killing my PCI-E card presumably when it puts the screens to sleep when I leave for the day. So I'm coming in to all of my windows being moved to the PCI card's monitor (only one hooked to it) and I have to reboot to get PCI-E card to come back.
If I check the screen properties, I see only the screen hooked to the PCI card. I've changed the setting in the BIOS for the first video card to Auto and also tried the PCI-E selection and it's the same either way.
Why on earth would it default to the PCI card rather than the PCI-E card?
i am on windows 8.i am using HP laptop.this is my ccc version.
i got 2 problems:well first one is that i can't update to windows 8.1 as the update always hang on 82% and after that my laptop automatically shutsdown i don't know whats the reason is and that's why i am stuck at windows 8 till now although have 8.1 ISO but i don't want to install it as i have to erase my my windows 8 which came pres-installed so i will loose my genuine windows 8 .now i want to know what if i open the 8.1 installer and install it from a virtual tool like Deamon although it gives an option to keep files app setting safe but i fear that it would conflict with 8 and i would have to format my laptop then ok now to the major problem i just recently purchased Watch Dogs and installed it.I played the first mission and got busted so the mission failed and it began to reload and then a error pops up saying watch dogs have stopped working upon googling i found out that this is due to DUAl AMD Graphics so they stated that i should disable it but i cant find any option of disabling DUAL Graphics.
i play a browser game on chrome named begone nplay with my charger plugged in i get 100-130 fps but whenever i unplugged it it drops to like 20-40 fps . i checked power settings and its always on high performance .
I just decided to turn loose Windows 8 RP on "bare metal" here as opposed to a VM. I didn't even bother to mess with video under a VM, but with the bare metal install, I've run into some trouble.
At first, media player didn't seem to play anything, including .wmv files. Messing around, I unchecked the "Direct X acceleration" box and that allowed it to play .wmv files. However, it still won't play .mp4 files -- no video, just sound, and Media Player will hang trying to exit.
It did this with a clean install with only the Windows supplied video driver. My video card has been obsoleted by AMD now (HD 4200 chipset) and I couldn't use the new Windows 8 preview driver package, but I did try installing the AMD 12.4 driver in Win7 compatibility mode. That worked fine it seems, but it still won't play .mp4 files. Turning the Direct X acceleration back on still kills .wmv playback as well.
Win7, both x64 and 32-bit played .mp4 files fine right out of the box on this machine.
I have the following graphics card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Windforce 2X NVIDIA Graphics Card - 2GB installed on the system in my sig, what are the correct BIOS setting for the GPU, The options are: PCI Slot, PEG, PEG1, PEG2 and PEG3
I'm having issues with one of my GPU's fans (it features a dual-fan cooling) and will have to fix it soon. The problem is, it's making an annoying noise and I was thinking if I could just block it for the time being, however brutally that sounds.
So, the question is - provided the GPU doesn't reach critical temperatures (I'm going to monitor this obviously) - would this create any additional risks, like overcurrent or something? (I don't play games, but it's a HD6950, so it does emit a lot of heat).
