Here's what I've done - besides googleing for the past 5 hours...: Updated intel chipset Tried the guide here: How to Fix NVIDIA Driver Update Installer Error - YouTube ---- this got me a little further but as soon as it tries to access my tv the installation dies (the time of a gfx installation where the screen flickers) Removed the windows driver. Uninstalled old nvidia drivers.
When I try to change my video adapter the only option I get is Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
I have a Nvidia Geforce Go 7400
Operating System: Windows 8 Pro 32-bit System Manufacturer: Dell Inc. System Model: Latitude D820 BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A10 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T7400 @ 2.16GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHz
My problem is that I can't change resolution on my laptop's display with win 8. It's quite an old, Toshiba Satellite M70. I installed win 8 directly from XP. Everything is working fine except this. I tried to install the old drivers in compatibility mode, but says the system requirement is not enough. Do I have any chance to make it work?
i bought new computer few days ago.i have sapphire HD 7750 2gb ddr3 - and im installed the driver for that by the CD but after i want to play some games . i get this massage Display driver stopped responding and has recovered.
I amm using windows 8.1 64 bit and everytime I open Photoshop cs6 for the time after a boot I get this message 'Display driver has stopped working but has recovered', my system can handle photoshop so I know thats not the problem. My graphics card is a AMD Radeon HD 8330.
i have a Leonovo H520 current gpu is "Radeon 5750" i recently upgraded my psu to 600w which 450 is enough for the card. but everytime im in a game my screen goes black and my game crashes and i have that error it is really annoying [URL]
I just installed my new graphics cards and successfully install new driver.
Most of time i got this error on the start up of my computer. Here an image But it did happen once,when i was playing sniper elite nazi (for about 10min) and when it crashed i had to reboot because the driver didn't recover so any other games refuse to start giving DX11 failed error or just .exe crash.
All other games work properly.
I tryed to place the card in another PCIe slot but doesn't work either. I try both Driver Beta and the official one but both failed.
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 know how to select the second screen options, however, my Surface Pro and our Samsung Laptop both running Windows 8 cannot detect a second monitor/screen. We are connecting via the HDMI port, but it will not display no matter what option we choose nor whether we run it from the desktop or apps. This is what we use for work to display presentations for clients.
For last couple days I've been going through a minor computer issue. I wasn't doing anything special, I just turned the computer off. And the next day the problem occured; After bios and Windows 8 loading screen ( the little dots going round, just below the windows 8 icon ) my screen goes black and there's no signal to the display. I've already tried formatting my hdd and installing windows 8, also tried doing Reset option, from the Windows 8 troubleshot system. I can't access my Safe Mode, because it tells that Windows can't finish the installation in safe mode ( After installing the new system I format all the data and it goes just fine until the windows icon and "Preparin your devices" sign. It goes 100% and gets black again.
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.
Every time I try to download the HD7310 AMD driver instead I get a program that wants to charge me to auto update all my drivers.
I just want to download the latest Windows 8.0 64 bit driver for HD7310. I'm on a Laptop and the video text is horrid. I have catalyst software installed but every time I try to adjust brightness and/or contrast it looks nothing like the sample page. It gets progressively worse the more I attempt to adjust it. I can't believe it's this tough to get legible text on a monitor in this day and age.
I have to reinstall Windows 8 on my laptop for some reason. So after installation finished I went to Device Manager for Installing Drivers. After all the other drivers like Chipset, Network, Audio etc, I went to the Install the Display Driver. There I noticed that under the Display tab my NVIDIA GT 650M is already listed but usually if any Device driver is not installed then it will be shown as Unknown Device or Standard VGA Adapter. But here it shows that it is working and one more Thing I noticed is that in the display tab it was written:-
NVIDIA GT 650M (Microsoft Corporation-WDDM 1.2)
So my question is that should I install the NVIDIA driver from my ASUS Driver And Software Utility Disk or should I keep it as it is? I have heard somewhere that WDDM drivers works better than any other Driver with Windows 8. Is it true? I didn't get any Performance Fall or any BSODs etc and games are also working.
I have a Lenovo Flex 14 - win 8.1 (64 bit).I have restored my pc and after the recovery the option to adjust the display brightness has "disappeared". The option is no longer in place in the charms bar or in Power Option and the adjustment keys (F11 and F12) are not working either.
I just upgraded to 8.1 and now a game that I play called theHunter wont launch. When I run the launcher it comes up with an error saying 'No Appropriate Display Modes'. It was working fine on Windows 8. The support at the Hunter hasn't been very useful and despite trying a number of different things I can't seem to solve this issue.
I'm having a terrible time after reformatting my 8.1 machine (desktop).Every time I try to adjust a display setting, such as gamma, some other process overrides it in real-time. Meaning I can't calibrate my display in windows color calibration, or even in my nvidia control panel, it instantly resets it while you're adjusting the slider. I don't know what this could possibly be, but I've uninstalled the Dell display manager, so I assume it's not the monitor overriding it. I also have nvidia control panel set to 'use other applications' for display configuration.
I use Windows 8 on a rMBP, but frequently use an external monitor that's 1080p. Since it scales 200% for the HiDPI of the rMBP, it's way too big on the external. Is there a way I can have it scale only the internal monitor, and leave the external one at 100%?
Both primary and secondary displays are 1080p, native. Windows says both are running at 1920x1080, but I can visually see the secondary display is running a lower resolution. The GPU is GeForce GTX 560M, with the latest drivers. I didn't have this issue with Windows 7.
I'm using Windows 8.1pro,also I use HDMI to sometime output video files on a TV screen,that works fine. HDMI cable is always plugged in,primary display is set to my computer monitor.I don't always use TV screen and because of existing cable connection my OS extends image to second screen and my mouse cursor alway disappear when it goes to borders,that is an annoying situation,is there a way to disable/eanble extend display on second screen without unplug the cable,just like I can set default output sound device (computer/hdmi sound) ?
I have an Acer Aspire 5515 with an AMD Athlon 2650eprocessor (64 bit) however, I have installed the 32 bit version of Windows 8 Pro. I cannot locate a driver for the ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 Graphics card that is compatible with Windows 8 32 bit. Acer's website is no support, since they only ever sold the Aspire 5515 with XP or Vista 64 bit systems, therefore they cannot provide what I need.
AMD's website is useless. It's auto-detect system for determining which graphics card and operating system I'm using is incompatible with Windows 8, and there is no method for ,e to type in which card and OS I have (you can only select from pull down menus, and the 1200 series and Windows 8 are not listed). Following the links to contact their technical support take you to a video on how to determine what graphics card you have, then right back to the beginning all over again. Worthless.
ATI says I can run a Vista driver in Windows 7, but I can't even find a Vista driver in 32 bit, and I'm using Win 8, not 7. I'm to the point where I'm going to install Windows 7 64 bit and be done with it.
All the new nvidia graphics drivers pass 314.22 has a well-documented crashing problem on certain models which I'm a victim to. So I always stay on 314.22. Problem is, windows is a bit too smart for its own good and keeps trying to install the newest version without asking or even prompting me. I can disable it from doing that by changing the "Device Installation Settings" to "Never install driver updates from windows update", but the problem I realized today is that this prevents windows from auto installing all other driver as well... for example, when I plugged in my printer, it said in order to auto install the driver I need to re-enable the auto driver update thing. The minute I re-enabled, BOOM, windows 8.1 re-installed the newest nvidia driver, and i had to spend more time rolling back and uninstalling all the parts I don't need, like HD audio, nvidia update, 3d vision .etc. etc
So my question is, is there anyway I can disable windows from updating that specific driver, or, if there is a way I can manually make windows install drivers for new devices (through windows and not driver hunting on manufacturer website) without having to enable the automatic driver update option.
P.S, when the setting is on "Never install driver updates from windows update", I see the nvidia update when I manually check for updates. So I tried hiding the update. Unfortunately, as soon as I let windows automatically install newest drivers, the nvidia driver installs anyway....
I have a laptop where my LCD is broken on the left side, but the right side works fine. Is there a way I can change my display to only show on the right side? I've managed to make the display horizontally smaller, but I can't figure out how to change the center to the right side. This is annoying because I have to re-size every window every time I open it, and then I have to constantly scroll back and forth on web pages. I'd rather be able to maximize and have it only on the right side. See the attached picture to see what I'm talking about.
I am on a laptop with a gtx 765m. I am trying to connect a thunderbolt port to a display port monitor. My understanding is that thunderbolt is backwards compatible with display port. But, for the life of me I can not get it to work.
I am using a minidisplay port -> display port cord.
I have ended up hooking the monitor up with an hdmi cord for now. FYI the monitor is a 2560x1440 monitor if that matters.
In a few weeks (I can't wait! ) I will replace my laptop with the Surface Pro.
Right now, though, I have my laptop connected to two monitors: One via VGA and other via DVI. I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64, so this all works great.
So the big question is whether it is possible to have multi-monitor support via the one-and-only DisplayPort that is on the Surface Pro? If so, what--if any--additional hardware would I need?
When I'm docked at home and using my Surface Pro as laptop, I really need to keep the functionality of using both external monitors (one is 31" and the other 29"). I would really hate to go back to only being able to use one.
So I'm running 2xR9 290X (crossfire) with 3xQnix Qx2710 monitors. One of the qnix monitors was purchased with HDMI/DisplayPort connectors along with the usual DVI connector (normally these monitors only come with the D-DVI input)
I had a 2 monitor (with just the two DVI-only monitors) setup for a while that was working fine.
Since installing the third monitor I'm experiencing several weird things:
- On boot, until the Windows login screen comes up (Windows 8.1), there is nothing on the non-primary DVI monitor (so my setup is my primary monitor is one of the two DVI monitors, and then the left and right monitors is another DVI-only and the DP monitor).
- If the monitors go to sleep, or I put the computer to sleep and wake it up, any windows that were on the non-primary DVI monitor are moved over to the primary DVI monitor. Windows on the DP monitor do not move in this configuration.
- Within CCC, after sleep / monitors off, I have to restart CCC's control of the color settings for the non-primary DVI monitor. (I'm forgetting what the actual button says, but it's the button under the Display color controls settings where you can manipulate the R/G/B channels - I have to use the GPU for color matching since the monitors don't have any inherent ways to change R/G/B levels
If I only connect the two DVI monitors this is not an issue.
If I connect one DVI and the DP monitor, after sleep/wake any windows that were on the DP monitor are moved over to the primary monitor (again, note that this didn't happen when all 3 monitors were connected).
I have tried the newest version of CCC, as well as the current beta version - same behavior in both.
I have tried using HDMI instead of DP - same behavior
Aspects of this sound similar to the issues discussed in this post : [URL] ......
What I don't understand is why the second DVI monitor is acting so oddly when all 3 monitors are connected. Why would there be no picture when the computer boots?
I'm not sure if this problem is with the GPU, but I think it might be a good place to start.
Up until recently, I was running Windows 8.1 on a custom build with the following: Athlon II X4 610E processor, Silverstone NT01-E cooler, MSI 890-GX MoBo, 4GB OCZ DDR3/1333 RAM, Zotac GeForce GT 240 GPU, AuzenTech X-Fi Home Theater Sound Card, Western Digital 2TB Caviar Green, Corsair GT 120 SSD, Samsung SH-B083 ODD, and Silverstone NightJar ST40F PSU.
With this build I noticed that there was a certain tendency for the screen to "flicker" when the video changed (ie, starting a Netflix video, a Hulu video, movie on WMC, etc). It generally occurs at the start of a video and it's conclusion, being most annoying on Hulu because it does this at the start of a segment, just before the commercial break, and during the commercials.
Since I'm transitioning to gaming on my PC, I replaced several components, upgrading to a EVGA GeForce GTX 770 DUAL SuperClocked GPU, Intel Core i5-4570 processor (stock cooler), CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) RAM, ASUS Q87M-E LGA 1150 MoBo, and CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W PSU. I also reinstalled Windows 8.1.
I had hoped that this would clear up my issue as a side benefit, but that is not the case. In fact, in some instances it's frequency has increased, mostly only occurring at the times I've come to expect, but I was watching a Hulu video just a few minutes ago and the number of times the screen flickered was nearly unbearable.
