Graphic Cards :: New Galaxy NVIDA GEForce 620 Not Allowing Computer To Sleep
Dec 21, 2013
Recently, I got a new graphics card for my computer (the card was Galaxy NVIDA GEForce 620). Well, after install some things changed that I do not like:
I can no longer sleep my computer. The #1 thing I liked about Windows 8 was getting to sleep the computer/ wake it up real fast. After I put this card in, the only options I get are Reboot and Shutdown. (And I even had to turn fast startup off, because when I start the computer up with it on, my USB's loose their functionality).
I installed an EVGA GT630 1GB but it doenst work properly with Windows 8 Pro x64. All I have is a black screen, but the computer isnt freezing, 'cos I can hear the logon and shutdown sounds. I've tested it on Server 2003 R2 x64 (XPDM) and it worked just fine.
I have a 2GB GeForce 640GT video card. It has 2GB onboard and windows 8 is using an additional 2GB of ram for it. I don't do gaming or heavy rendering. Occasionally I use google earth and a few other 3d mapping apps. I don't see how any of these need 4GB of ram to do this. This 2GB of system memory is 25% of my entire system memory. This card, in an older PC used no system memory under Windows 7.
How can I reclaim this ram? If I cannot, and add more ram will it take even more of that?
nVidia says this is a windows issue and not a driver issue but I cannot find anywhere in windows to tune or change this.
See the attached System Information from the nVidia control panel.
So I bought an MPG645 which is actually a Medion and I have a GeForce GT640 (which should work fine with Windows 8). First time when I installed the card I got the beeps (long short short) and nothing happened. Went into bios and noticed I had an "OS selector" for either Windows 8 and Win7/OtherOS. Setting it to the Win7/other OS solved the beeps and I could use my GT640. Now yesterday I had a big problem resulting in me needing to get back to factory default so as I am used from the previous OS setups I removed my videocard, set the bios back to original and re-installed my system
Then I wanted to put my card back.....black screen (after setting the OS back to WIN7/otherOS). tried it without the card and got a message telling me I had to use the proper boot device, hit any key and try again". The solution I was reading on the nvidia page told me to disable secure boot, no solution.
Basically, it has worked fine until I had to reset my system and now whatever I try I can't install my graphics card

I have recently installed a new Video Card a Gigabyte GeForce 660 GTX, when I'm playing video's or if I open the Geforce Experience program from the task bar the screen goes blank for about a second then returns to normal, it always seems to happen when I get the program to check for updates. I am using the latest driver 320.49.
When I play games there's no problem occur so I don't think it's the card it's self, I suspect it's something to do with the program.
I recently installed a new GTX660 Ti GPU, but I am now experiencing a major issue with the sleep function. Whilst I am able to sleep the PC, when I try to wake it, nothing really happens. I hear the "device disconnected" sound and then nothing for at least 2 minutes before it automatically restarts.
Once it eventually boots, a message appears saying "Windows experienced a problem and had to shut down" (owtte)
I have attached a screenshot from WhoCrashed.
I have obviously tried installing new drivers, resetting the GPU etc but to no avail.
My computer randomly shutdowns when I use it for a while maybe 2hrs or 3, reboots by itselfs and windows cannot boot back, getting a black screen and nothing happens, So i manually turn it off and turn it on again to make it work. Sometimes it doesn't even want to work, black screen after multiple reboots So i need to syster restore it, sometimes that also doesn't work and i need to reset it completely.
At first i thought it was the new drivers i installed for my nvidea geforce gt640, the 331 version. I heard it was making pcs crash like mine does, so i downgraded the driver to 306 and it works for longer but the crash happened once again after a while, and after a windows 8 reset (deleted everything and reinstalled by itself). So this is a fresh Windows 8 i believe but still does crash.
After the crash that happened tonight, i restarted my pc and realised one of my fan in my pc is going extremely fast at random times but not for long. I went closer to hear which one was doing that and it seems to be the fan on my video card, I also touched my card and its very HOTTTTTT close to burning my hand ".".
My pc has been cleaned yesterday by my step dad, had lots of dust, even in the video cards fan, but now is clean and still overheating. Using a 350W PS which i heard is not really good and that i should upgrade really soon. CPU Temp is fine, all fans are working properly, I believe my video card is broken or my PS not giving it enough power or something?
The auto reboots are annoying, making me have to restore every time and sometimes reset Windows 8. It seems to only happen when i do lots of stuff at once like mixing via audacity and having x2 perfect world clients up, plus radio streaming live.

I am running two 7950s in crossfire on my computer. Anytime I launch a game, my computer just locks up and this hardcore buzzing sound playing right when it crashes, the sound continues while the computer is frozen.
This problem has happened in both Battlefield 3 and Splinter Cell Blacklist. I have enabled Crossfire and Crossfire for applications that have no associated profile. In GPUz, it says my cards are enabled for crossfire.
I'm wondering if it's my psu? If I disable crossfire, the games work, but the second gpu is at 0% utilization.
Here are my specs:
Windows 8 64bit AMD 13.8 beta 2 drivers ULPS is disabled via MSI Afterburner (and I did restart after) CPU: 4670k Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87x-UD5H RAM: 16GB Gskill HDD: OS on a 120gb ssd, games on a 2tb WD Black PSU: 750w Corsair
I have to galaxy s2 one of of the can't connect to the pc and the other one can. The one which dosn't connect a messege pops up ( the last device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and windows dosen't recognize it.
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.
Why I am not able to choose the underlined letter when hitting alt-x which brings up the quick list of shortcuts? I was able to before and now it no longer allows it. I have to select w/the mouse. No huge deal but want things to be how they were. I 've also tried using Win 8's "refresh" to no avail.
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).
I actually think it's integrated, how do I do it? According to running a random game on systemrequirementslab.com (Dead Island), my dedicated video RAM is 32mb. It's not a custom built, I bought it from the store.
Here are specs according to dxdiag: System Info: Operating System: Windows 8 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) System Manufacturer: Dell Inc. System Model: Inspiron 5323 BIOS: A08 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3217U CPU @ 1.80GHz (4 CPUs), ~1.8GHz Memory: 6144MB RAM Page file: 3252MB used, 5310MB available DirectX Version: DirectX 11
I am on my work computer, a DELL desktop with Windows 8.1, and I've been using a dual monitor setup for months, both with Windows 8 and 8.1. One monitor is connected via the VGA input, and the other is through a VGA to HDMI adapter. Again, they've been working flawlessly for months. It was a plug 'n play setup that took a minute and never had an issue.
I came in today and the second screen was blank. In the screen setup menu it recognized it and allowed me to adjust between extending, mirroring, etc. But after I unplugged it and plugged it back in, it no longer recognizes it. It simply cannot find a second monitor plugged in. Both screens work when plugged directly into the VGA port separately but not when plugged in the way they've worked for months.
I just purchased a new windows 8 PC. I was attempting to hook the computer up to my tv through hdmi (the pc has no VGA input) and when I went through the normal paces to put the display on my tv (display desktop only on 2), the signal did not transfer and there is no display on either my tv or pc! how to revert the display back to my pc monitor without being able to see anything? Acer support was less than useful. It's an acer aspire z3-605 all-in-one pc.
I've noticed that whenever I unplug my charger my brightness dims down to a point where I know its on, but I can't use it. Usually I have to put my computer to sleep and turn it back on to get it to fix. Also, the brightness wont adjust in anyway when its on. I've tried the function keys and the setting in the side bar. I have a toshiba laptop running windows 8.1 . I also have recently completely wiped it thinking it was a virus of some sorta with no change.
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.
Today, I got a new graphics card for my computer that is about 5 years old. Here are my specs:
Dell Inspiron 530 Intel Core 2 Duo e2500 2.33 GHz Processor NEW GPU: MSI Geforce GT 440 (N440GT) OLD GPU: NVIDIA Geforce 8600GT 3GB ram 300 watt power supply (unsure of 12V ratings) Windoes 8 Pro 64bit
I installed my GT440 into my computer today, and the card worked fine when there was no drivers installed. I uninstalled my older drivers from my 8600 and installed drivers for the 440. When I restarted, I got the BSOD with an error message saying VIDEO_DTR_FALIURE. What does this message mean, and what can I do to fix this BSOD problem? This didnt happen on my old card, but it does on my new card? Is there a problem with my power supply, or is it an issue with the drivers?
