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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi I'm hoping someone can help me out here because I'm majorly frustrated at this point Regardless of the device I use I can preview photos on the device and they are the correct color 'I'm losing my issue? this Photos or change - Is an a issue mind' graphics color They are also the correct color when viewed in paint photoshop or quicktime windows preview However they get fuzzy and green when viewed in a windows gallery or when uploaded to a site such as imageshack I can open the same file side by side one in photoshop and one in windows live photo gallery at the same time and one will be the right color and the other will be green Here are examples This photo appears blue to me Photos change color - Is this a graphics issue or an 'I'm losing my mind' issue? This one is slightly green and fuzzier The same file in the same format was used to upload both What really confuses me however is that I viewed the link to the green photo on a different computer and it looks the same as the blue one So as far as I know everyone who clicks on those links is thinking quot But they're the same and you're crazy quot Which is arguable depending on the crowd but they really don't look the same to me I'm using a Slimline s n with Windows Vista Home Edition and NVIDIA GeForce SE Graphics This is a fairly recent issue and is apparently inexplicably selective I have played around with saving the files in various formats but it doesn't make a difference and also doesn't explain why I view the same file in the same format differently depending on what program I use and when I upload it Anyone have any idea what's happening here

A:Photos change color - Is this a graphics issue or an 'I'm losing my mind' issue?

Hello, yes, they looked the same to me, as to why one program shows blue, and another shows green is weird tho.

A:Motherboard/graphics issue

For clarification:

You installed both video and chipset drivers for your motherboard and CPU.
You are using the Projection Menu built-in Windows, by pressing both "Windows Key" and "P".
When adding the graphics card, you changed the graphics settings in BIOS to use PCIe instead of IGP.

Whenever my CPU gets moved or hit slightly my Graphics card stops working. I noticed the fan would turn off and I lose the signal to my monitor. It works fine sitting on its side but whenever I secure it and move my entire PC it stops working again. I've tried both slots on my MB with the same result.

My question, how can I tell if its my MB or GFX card? Or both?

I just recently bought and assembled my own computer, however when I turn it on I see a blank screen and can't set up BIOS nor install an OS. I checked and everything is plugged and set correctly. I have tried moving the graphics card into a new PCI slot but I still get a blank screen. I also tried to use different cables (HDMI, VGA, and DVI) but still no luck. At this point I don't know what else to do. Help?

Below are the links to my motherboard and video card.

A:Monitor, graphics card, or motherboard issue?

What is the make and model of your monitor?

Hello!

Recently, my desktop has been having seeming random freezes while idle/normal activity levels and the monitor turns into something like the attached images, or a solid color closest to what the screen was displaying before it crashes.

The same thing happens upon hard reset, and sometimes I am not even able to get to the BIOS. At other times, the monitor does not detect an input from the graphics card.

My current setup is as follows:
Motherboard: P55A-UD4P (No onboard graphics)/Flashed to latest firmware after having issues
Graphics: ASUS EAH5770 1GB
Monitor: Samsung P2250

I don't think its the monitor (as I've tested it with my laptop). Therefore it probably is the graphics card or motherboard. Any diagnostics/fixes for my situation?

Hey everyone Sorry for the dramatic title but this problem really is actually making me go a little mad My system had intermittent issues where it wouldn t load about a year ago Sometimes it would post sometimes it wouldn t Then after a while it stopped posting at all What would happen is the graphics card fans would spin to maximum speed and I would get one long am Motherboard at wits boot in issue graphics / results I card my no end!! beep followed by three short ones - no VGA detected I assumed it was my graphics card and returned I am at my wits end!! Motherboard / graphics card issue results in no boot it After an extremely long and unnecessary replacement procedure I got a new graphics card which worked for a while before the same problem occurred - it stopped booting at all just giving me the quot No VGA Detected quot beep sequence So I thought it must be the motherboard I returned it and sure enough the test result said that there were problems posting I have now received the replacement AND IT STILL DOESN T WORK I do not have another system I can use for parts but I was able to check it with a basic PCI-e card from a friendly computer repair shop and that DID work So that indicates it s the graphics card But if it s the graphics card why did the system work for a while about weeks before starting to fail to boot I never saw any artifacts or anything on screen Furthermore if the graphic card is the problem why did the motherboard come up with a fault I am thinking I m cursed The motherboard comes up faulty - but then the new motherboard won t load with my graphics card itself a replacement What is the problem here I have ordered a new graphics card and will return the current one if it does work but what could be causing the issue in the first place It s a new mobo and a card that worked for a while - it seems that it would be fantastically bad luck to have two graphics cards which both break over time AND a defective motherboard I m lost Any thoughts anyone please - I am desperate Asus P T Deluxe v Intel Core i x GB Corsair DDR Corsair W PSU Sapphire Radeon HD prior to that NVidia GTX nbsp

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.

Hi, I've got this motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP.
I just went looking around the BIOS, and found out how to use my other monitor (connected via VGA port on motherboard) but not how to use both my graphics card and motherboard internal graphics (Graphics card for main display and motherboard display for alternate display) at the same time. I read that some motherboards can do this, and I would think that mine could, due to it being quite a good motherboard, but am I missing something? I can't seem to find it!

And help/answers will be awesome.

PS. the 2nd monitor is ONLY VGA and my graphics card only has ports for HDMI and DVI, I do have an adapter... for HDMI to DVI... Damn...

PSS. If im unclear, ask in the reply section.

Thanks Again!

obviously i wouldnt want to send it back so what do ya think either upgrade my motherboard and smash the extra 4 gb in there or keep to my original one i dont have money to blow atall im really struggling if its something that will really make a difference ill go with it if not then ill just keep to my original and when i come to buy a graphics card i will get a 2gb graphics card to help with gaming all i really do is gaming i dont really do anything else

thankyou for your time

A:Motherboard 4gb Max or change motherboard for 8gb ?

I'd go with 4 gigs until you had a major reason to believe it wasn't enough. If that ever happens, consider your next move. Most people do just fine with 4 gigs.

I considered 8 gigs on my 4 slot board but decided against it and don't regret it.

The DDR3 memory on graphics cards is independent to what your dektop PC has installed. The DDR3 memory modules on graphics cards are part of the card. Separate to the PC's memory.

You will however, need DDR2 for the PC. DDR3 doesn't fit into DDR2 slots.

With your PC you might be out of luck as it looks like that motherboard/model only supports up to 2GB

Hello all,

I have a machine with a Gigabyte X58A Ud3 in, because I think that it's faulty I'd like to upgrade it to the X58a UD5.

Can I do this without grief? Is it a simple matter of swapping it out, plug in original devices update bios, MB drivers and go, boot up with original c drive?

Am I being optimistic? Could I trash my existing setup?

Thanks

James

A:can I change my motherboard

James, Yes it is most likely possible to change your motherboard out BUT. It does require a bit of technical knowhow as the memory and the cpu will have to be moved to the new motherboard and moving the cpu and cooler is not for the faint of heart. Unless your young and have steady hands and good eyes. It can get sticky uninstalling and moving the cpu to the new motherboad. Damn those pins on the cpu are small

Regarding your hard disk, That could be a problem as the new motherboard has different drivers and such.

But I have seen the hard disk moved to a new mb with a minimum of fuss. First you must backup all of your data and save any install programs with the validation codes or serial numbers.

Also, according to the OEM license. when you change the mb on an oem computer, you need a new copy of windows but if you have a regular copy of windows ie.. full version then you can install it on the new mb.

The most important thing is good backups...

Good luck and may the force be with you

A:Motherboard change help!!!

What's your budget?

I think the answers will largely depend on how much money you want to put into this project.

If you are looking for a graphics upgrade and you are replacing your mobo consider moving to a board with PCI-Express graphics. That would give you a longer life to your investment and the graphics boost is nice indeed. Of course, if you go that far you are probably looking at a new processor and memory as well.

Also, what size power supply do you currently have? Newer graphics cards need more power and most stock computers don't supply much of that.

okay i just got a k8n neo3 motherboard from my friend...(my old motherboard died). And everything is great except for the fact that my ati radeon 9600xt wont work on there. Now when i went to go look for drivers i found one but needed to first reinstall windows. Now i went to go reinstall windows with the POS pci graphics card i have but i could only do things in safe mode or the compy would crash. Now i was thinking this is due to the differences in drivers for the stuff i had in my compy before i switch parts. Now i am stuck with trying to reinstall windows...but when i get to the end of installing the download freezes and doesnt start up again.
 

A:Help with graphics/motherboard

The pci and agp cards use entirely different drivers for both the cards and the slots, you should try an install with the agp card.
If you have no data you want to keep on the hdd or you have made a back up then a full format would be a good idea just in case you have any data corruption on it.

A:Motherboard Graphics

What you have heard is not entirely true. While it is true any componet will use CPU cycles that doesn't mean your not getting anything out of it.

If you disable the onboard graphics and just use an onboard graphics card the motherboard will work just as well as any other. Or if you can use Hybrid XFire to get a good performance boost with your onboard graphics card.

Hey all,

My mobo just failed so I am thinking about attempting a mobo swap without a reinstall.

I found this thread: Change Mobo and Processor without format ? where the OP reported success.

If I can get this working, are there any potential Cons that I should be aware of?

If I do have to reinstall how does the Repair reinstall differ than the Clean reinstall?

I already have all my Personal Files on a separate partition on the HD and I will be using the same processor and RAM. Thanks.

You shouldnt even have to do a repair, just install and see if it identifies everything. Have the latest mobo chipset and integrated stuff drivers downloaded and ready to go if you can. If Win7 doesnt recognize the new mobo then a repair is a 2nd option.

From your specs it appears this is a custom or homemade PC... if so you really shouldnt have any issues!

So I went shopping and they sold me a new motherboard (MSI G31TM-P31 MSI Global ? Mainboard - G31TM-P31). After i installed the new motherboard, i turned on the system and the blue light was on and the fan was spinning. after a short while the fan started spinning much faster. So I went ahead and tested the processor on another computer and it was working properly. The processor is a Pentium Dual-Core (I will post model number if requested since it's a bit hard to take off with the fan and all).

Hi

My desktop system came with an OEM version of Vista Home Premium installed. This has since been upgraded to Ultimate.

Unfortunately the mother board has developed a fault and I will have to replace it.

The original motherboard is no longer available (manufacturer gone bust I think) so I have to replace it with a different make.

According to searches on Microsoft, to continue using an OEM version of vista any change of mother board must be of the same make and type as installed on the original system the OS version was licensed to.

If this is true I will have to purchase a full version of Vista or try and get another OEM version with a motherboard. (VERY expensive so not an option)

Has anyone had the same problem and know if this is true or know of a way round this.

Regards

Copperfield

A:OEM System change of motherboard

Hello Copperfield,

Sometimes if you use the same brand of motherboards you will still be able to use the same OEM Vista on it, but you will have to check with the OEM manufacturer to be sure though.

You could get a cheaper upgrade version and use this method below to install if you end up having to buy a retail copy.

From another site (you should try google)

since the 32nm Clarkdale-based CPUs are going to have onboard video on-chip, there's no chipset currently with onboard video and it's not available on any current CPUs. If your mom needs a computer right this very moment with onboard video, I'd probably go with an AMD Athlon II X2 system and a motherboard with the AMD780G chipset

A:New motherboard and two new graphics cards

If you're still planning on OC'ing the CPU -and presumeably the cards...then probably depends on the power efficiency of the PSU and age...and how much power in reserve you're comfortable with. You were talking about taking the 950 to 4GHz...that's pushing into the 180-200w zone. Crossfired cards will likely take you to ~550w. Overclocking the cards to any reasonable extent could add another 100w - say 650w system total.

850w PSU @ 85% efficiency = 723w. Anything less than 85% might be pushing it.

I have an old ASUS K V-X SE motherboard that I slung together with a bunch of other spare parts to make a backup system For starters it s got an AMD x processor on it a decent NVidia graphics card GB s of RAM and a brand new power supply I loaded XP x on it and for the most part it s runs surprisingly well I cannot get Motherboard Old graphics problems having the USB to work on it even after loading the VIA drivers but that s another matter What s bugging me is most of the time when I boot up and sometimes even when Old Motherboard having graphics problems I resume from standby with the screen still black a strange looking electronic pattern appears almost light Old Motherboard having graphics problems plaid-like in appearance and in various colors It doesn t stay on the screen long then it goes away and the system boots up normally into Windows I ve tried several video cards and they all do the same thing but it is an older board and with the USB not working and some other little annoyances it s very possible I ve got a board that s just barely hanging on and I wouldn t lose any sleep if I junked it but is in a Socket and those are hard to find anymore though I have recently found a refurbished one online that might be better than what I think might be a lemon board One more thing I don t believe it s the monitor It s a business class LG that used to run with no problems on my main system I guess I can live with the little bug for awhile before I either pop in a new board or possibly try another video card I think those things corupt pretty easy sometimes from handling or static But all of this takes place during the boot so I m clueless The only theory I have is Could it be power supply I put in a brand new but cheap CoolMax watt but I ve never really been thrilled with that brand Guess I could pop in a pare to test my theory nbsp

Is there a motherbaord that offers integrated graphics within the socket am3/+ region?

A:AM3/+ Motherboard with Integrated Graphics

Yes there is quite a range, one that immediately springs to mind and at good value is the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AMD760G it offers AMD 3000 Radeon graphics but as im a NVIDIA user im not sure what it offers in terms of performance but any integrated graphics are going to be low-end compared to dedicated cards.

Im a bit of a Gigabyte Fanboy so i'd suggest any one of the AM3+ boards they offer with integrated graphics.

Another suggestion i could offer would be to go for one of AMD's new APU's which is a CPU/GPU in 1 chip theyre reasonably affordable and the motherboards that run them (FM1 or FM2 Sockets) are equally affordable.

But ultimately i would suggest along with many others to go for a dedicated graphics card as long as the board you have or are getting along with your power supply are equipped to run it, even if its a low end GT630.

Here is a link of a video card heirachy chart that helps determine performance of integrated video with dedicated that should help you make a decision.

My question is, in the future when I can afford proper upgrades will I be able to change the motherboard?

A:Win 7 will not start or reinstall after motherboard change

Hello Les, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is activation your only issue at this point?

It's not activating since you changed the motherboard, CPU, and RAM. It thinks you have installed it on a new computer with it still installed and activated on the old computer (motherboard etc...).

If you have a retail copy of Windows 7, then you should be able to do a phone activation, wait for the operator (if need be), and let them know that you changed out the motherboard, CPU, and RAM.

Hope this helps,

I think the ATX standard will be around for some time so I don't see new design or types of motherboards. But I do see where many of today's PC users will get rid of their computer and move solely to their smart phones.

Different materials? No. Tracings? Fiber is already being tested so maybe some boards may go light for the buses.

Maxed out speeds? No.

Computers in closets? Already there. Many new homes come pre-wired and use a server for streaming music, video, and data.

No gaming; just normal Sr. Citizen stuff; internet, playing with photos of Grandkid, etc.

Seem like most of the ones in my price range of $ 700 or less come with what is apparently
integrated on the motherboard graphics. No separate graphic card.

About a year ago my graphics card fan on my HP Desktop conked out, but I was able to replace it very easily with a cheap $40 one. Worked just fine again.

If it was all on the Motherboard, I guess I would have had to scrap the whole PC ?

Am I missing anything, and what are your thoughts regarding a new Desktop PC
with "integrated graphics" ?

Hello,

Am about to look into purchasing a new desktop PC.
No gaming; just normal Sr. Citizen stuff; internet, playing with photos of Grandkid, etc.

Seem like most of the ones in my price range of $ 700 or less come with what is apparently
integrated on the motherboard graphics. No separate graphic card.

About a year ago my graphics card fan on my HP Desktop conked out, but I was able to replace it very easily with a cheap $40 one. Worked just fine again.

If it was all on the Motherboard, I guess I would have had to scrap the whole PC ?

Am I missing anything, and what are your thoughts regarding a new Desktop PC
with "integrated graphics" ?

Thanks, as always,
Bob

A:Integrated Graphics On The Motherboard Question

The graphics chip is now combined with the cpu, they are very good, but a good video card will always be better.

Hi I am trying to get a home built PC up and running It has the following specs - ECS KV Lite Motherboard - AMD Athlon CPU - GB SATA hard Drive - GB DDR PC Motherboard PSU, or problem card Graphics RAM - MB ATI X AGP Graphics Card I know the SATA drive PSU, Motherboard or Graphics card problem graphics card and RAM work perfectly as I am using it in my current set up Socket AMD Athlon When I put everything together using the socket board and the CPU then it PSU, Motherboard or Graphics card problem all goes Pete Tong basically it sounds like it is booting up - fans work etc but I get no picture on the screen it is completely blank and the monitor comes up with a quot no signal quot message I was thinking that it is possibly the PSU I have three altogether I only have a w PSU in the machine I m currently using It is a micro ATX case When I try using my current setup in my other standard ATX case with either the w or w PSU it doesn t work Put it all back in the micro ATX case with the w PSU and everything works I can t use the Micro ATX case with the mobo as the mobo is too big I tried taking the w PSU out of the micro ATX case and putting it in the standard ATX case with the amp setup and nothing worked at all no CPU fan or lights came on Just the PSU fan was turning possiby not enough power to start it Before I splash out on a new PSU any ideas of what my problem could be I don t believe the motherboard to be faulty I was thinking graphics card but it works in this PC although I did have problems to begin with getting black screen and quot mode not supported quot message Resolved this by downloading new drivers and fiddling with the bios The motherboard doesn t have onboard graphics like my board which is shame incase I need to fiddle with the BIOS again to get it to work Both the w and w PSUs showed no signs of failure when I used them previously no bangs or burning smells like I thought you were supposed to get when one failed I ve hit a blank wall in trying to think through what the problem could be and my only idea left is to get another PSU Any help would be appreciated nbsp

A:PSU, Motherboard or Graphics card problem

read the "NO post" guide in the guides forum.
ensure your case can fit a PSU of adequate size. Do not try to use an underpowered PSU on a new system - you can fry stuff.
The PSU is perhaps one of the most important components in a new system.

Hello As you can see by my post count I m new to the TS forums I ve been reading the forums a lot but never considered joining until today Now if you must know I get down to business quickly And uh my english isn t top notch but I guess it s okay enough to be understood I live in china so you understand right days ago I booted up my pc and got to the loading screen of windows and after it was loaded and got everything packed and loaded my screen went blank and didn t get any signals I ve read the other posts from people with this problem too and I didn t really get any help I ve also googled about a hundred websites and didn t find anything that helped My rigs Pentium Processor GHz Windows Vista Business Edition GB DDR RAM Winfast PX GT TDH Extreme Direct X Princeton Monitor compatibility Motherboard/Graphics Card quot Motherboard/Graphics Card compatibility Intel G GL PV mobo I guess these are the only things that can affect display right So I ve run some tests I ve noticed that during the periods where the graphics drivers aren t loaded yet that the graphic card works fine Meaning during the system startup and the logo screen everything s okay Also the graphic card works in safemode too simply because the driver s not implemented If I uninstall the driver completely the card can get through the logo screen but everything s lags and I can t really get anything done So I took my card for fixing and the people at the store said there was nothing externally or internally wrong with the card and maybe just something wrong with the mobo or driver Btw if there s something internally wrong with a graphics card there would be no signal sent to the monitor and if there s something externally wrong then there s automatically something internally wrong So yeah nothing wrong with the graphics card I ve downloaded about different kinds of drivers all from different sites and I ve virus scanned with the latest Ad-Aware SE and found no viruses The only option I m left with is that the graphics card and the mobo have a conflict somewhere The onboard card is already disabled and has been for about months I seems strange that this should happen now Solutions I ve tried so far Dusting Reinstalling Drivers Reinstalling OS Re-Plugging card Updating mobo Mobo Monitor Nothing works I only have this one graphics card and the onboard graphics card is okay too My last solution is Is there anything way to get this graphics card to mix in with my mobo I don t have enough money to get a new mobo graphics card and just enough to fix it which is already at least dollars Mind you I live in China Thank you for your time in reading this and I hope to get an answer sometime soon -Name too stupid for these forums nbsp
