Solved: Graphics problem, monitor or graphics card ??

Q: Solved: Graphics problem, monitor or graphics card ??


Lately I have been having graphics problems in games. There are these " artifacts", wierd shapes, triangles, ect that appear and "shot" through my screen. it is hard to explain what it looks like, except that it is NOT normal.

It is hard to say when these appeared. I have recently got a different monitor. It is not new. It is a Dell CRT monitor. I replaced 1 CRT with another because I am cheap .

I have the latest drivers, I think, for my graphics card ( GeForce 5700 LE ). Not great , but not terrible. I play the games with either low or medium settings. I ran a benchmark test that was terrible.

Any ideas as to weather it is the card or monitor?

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

hi. i am currently having this monitor driver/graphics card problem which i really cant figure out whether it's the monitor driver or the graphics card problem.

my display is set to 1920x1080 but it isn't displaying correctly: it has a 'bigger screen' than what it displays and i had to point my cursor to one side of the screen to "scroll the screen".

so is this problem got something to do with my graphics card or the display driver?
or i was thinking maybe some viruses/worms screwed up some system files.

sorry i'm kinda bad with my english, doesnt really know how to explain.

edit: oh yea i forgot to mention. sometimes when i start up my com it loads normal, otherwise it loads up in this eff-ed up resolution.

Any help would be much appreciated My computer has onboard graphics Nvidia geforce nforce a which works fine I wanted to do a dual monitor setup with my TV Panasonic TH- PX U I first checked with my computer manufacturer quot Shuttle Barebones quot Card/Dual Problem Solved: Monitor Installation Please Graphics Help! and was told that the Nvidia Gforce GT graphics card would be a suitable choice I purchased an HDMI w Ethernet cable and installed the new card When I first made the installation the connection to the TV worked It displayed my desktop etc When I turned it off I was unable to get the signal back on the TV I checked with Panasonic tech support and was Solved: Please Help! Graphics Card/Dual Monitor Installation Problem able to determine that the problem is most likely that I must use the lowest resolution setting on the computer as the TV is not really meant to be used as a monitor but it could work As I had a picture and sound before I think it will work However I am having a heck of a time with the computer settings in Nvidia Control Panel and some strange readings in my Device manager for the new installation I disabled the original Graphics card and the computer monitor is functioning normally on the new card However the peculiar reading in device manager is this Under Display adapters the old card correctly shows up as disabled and also reads under quot Location quot Bus device function The working quot Enabled quot card reads quot Location PCI Slot PCI Bus Device Function O IS THAT CORRECT or does it mean that this card is somehow NOT registering correctly Second In the Nvidia control panel I setup a quot Dual quot setup with the computer monitor as my primary quot quot and the TV as my secondary quot quot When I click on quot Identify quot the primary is identified as and when I click on the TV secondary it is identified as quot quot also and in fact there is still no signal passing from the card to the tv but I will try to do this using the lowest resolution and see if it works again I am not certain which settings in the Bios like Onboard or PCI express are correct I did a tremendous amount of research and the only other thing I came across was that the setting for the card under registry edit should be quot Allowed quot and not quot Read only quot so I enabled that but it seems to insist upon quot Both quot Allowed and Read Only being checked Can anyone shed some light on this and offer advice as to how to get this setup to work Incidently the tv tech support had me check that my HDMI cable and HDMI connection on the TV were working properly and they ARE Many thanks for any assistance Anxious to get this solved nbsp

A:Graphics card doesn't post any graphics to my monitor, computer boots up fine

Its usually just the graphics cards, they do fail especially if they overheat - then video card fan not speeding up might have been the problem - most are dynamic and should actually speed up under load. Depending on the manufacturer of your 8800GTX you might be able to get it replaced under warranty if they have a 3 year or greater warranty.

I am trying to install an ATI rage fury 128 pro graphics card. When I finish installing it, my monitor goes nuts. I get three(3) of everything and my Icons have no color(show white) I have a CTX monitor which works fine with a 3D Yamaha card. Can anyone help me with this ? Is it the Monitor, the card, or what? I have downloaded the latest drivers for the card. Until I did that I just got a black screen on the monitor. I realize this isn't the greatest card in the world, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on another card and find out it won't work either. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Monitor : ViewSonic 19" CRT Graphics Series G90f+

Graphics Card : ATI Radeon X800 XT Platinum

NOTE : Drivers are up-to-date and all cables and connections have been visually checked.


The screen oscillates between a normal colour cast and a slightly yellow colour cast. Oscillations are typically around 1 per second. Sometimes the screen stabilizes for a few hours on either the normal colour cast or the yellow colour cast and then starts oscillating again.

Any suggestions on possible causes would be gratefully received.

A:Monitor or graphics card problem?

I would say its the monitor.

Have another PC, graphics card? A friend with a PC and a monitor?

If its No,no,no, then I would go to my local PC shop and ask them to tell you which one it is for sure, and then buy what you need to.

I have a Dell Latitude D620 with Windows XP and was infected with malware few days ago. After we finished cleaning the laptop, I have started seeing some problems in the normal mode. When I start the laptop in normal mode, in most cases, it will start with lot of blue stripes all over the screen and will continue to have it even after the system has completed the start up process. In case it did not show the blue strips during start up, it will show up within few minutes after the system has completed the start up cycle. On the other hand, in safe mode, there are no lines at all so this problem is only in normal mode.

Please advise.


A:Graphics card or monitor problem?

You might try uninstalling the video drivers (could be damaged from malware or removal of same)...and then reinstalling the video drivers.

The fact that it doesn't occur in safe mode...seemingly points to the drivers, IMo.

It all started a yesterday while playing a game of Counter Strike : Source , I had alt-tabbed ingame and decided to alt-tab back into the game and as i proceeded to do this my computer locked up ... couldn't move mouse or anything.

So I proceeded to restart my computer. This is where everything went wrong. My monitor was not showing any image, only a black screen with the Analog/Digital box flashing.

So I tried a few things to see what would resolve this problem ...
Removed all cords, plugged them in agian ect.Unplugged graphics card then plugged back in agian.Restarted PC numerous times.Reinstalling drivers
I'm using a DVI to VGA cable connecting my graphics card to my monitor, if that helps.

I've also tried plugging another monitor into my graphics card, with no result.

Onboard graphics work fine.

I don't have another graphics card to test it on ...

In my computers devices it says the video driver is not installed correctly or something along those lines?

Does anybody have a step by step guide on installing drivers?

Specs are :

Intel Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz
2GB Corsair RAM
500GB Seagate Hard Drive
Leadtek 8800GTX 768mb
Antec 900 Case
Samsung 226BW

Thanks in advance

can you restart your pc but in safe mode to get back to windows while the 8800GTX is plugged in? or is the computer not even starting properly?

I am using an HP laptop with Vista,32 the display adapter is NVIDIA GE Force 7000. Whenever I use Windows Movee Maker and publish my file, the "publish to" menu stays on screen until I reboot as if it is burned in my monitor. I have tried closing and reopening the movee maker, closing all programs and reopening (then it is on the desktop) but the "publish to" does not disappear.

I publish a lot of movees as I make and edit photos, websites, etc. for a profession. So it is very annoying. Also I'm afraid it will burn into my screen.

A:Monitor/Graphics Card - Ubuntu problem

Seriousness: 4/10.

What it seems to be to me is that Ubuntu is for some reason setting your monitor's refresh rate to 87 Hz... "Out of Range 46.4kHz/87 Hz." When your monitor's maximum setting is probably around the 80 Hz mark.

When that message comes up, maybe try to quickly set the refresh rate to 75 Hz?

If that fails, maybe a clean install of Ubuntu is in order?

A:Problem installing new graphics card on Emachine/onboard-graphics

An extreme option

As you do have the option of a working computer prior to installing the new card I would back up any files that are important to you..
Then, before I would pay someone else BIG bucks, I would put in the new card and try a fresh install of windows. Force it to recognise your new card. The drivers that Windows will pick should suffice until the install is done and you can then install the card specific drivers from your disk.
This is given ONLY as a choice. I am not sure this will solve your problem but IT IS something this cheap bas____ would try before paying someone else.

Good Luck and check back, maybe someone else will contribute a better idea.

Okay so I ve just had to turn my graphics card off This is because the problem that has plagued me (Graphics Corruption Graphics Card) Problem for the better part of the year has gotten worse The problem THIS This first started in the first Q of the year During a game HL GarrysMod the graphics screwed up The thing is when I got back to desktop everything worked works fine Just the graphics are b ggered royally After an email exchange with the sellers of the graphics card An Abit Radeon SE Dabs I got them to take it back and quot fix quot it By quot fix quot I meant that after using the quot fixed quot card for a while a couple few months it happened again around September So I asked them again but the warranty had expired so no Graphics Corruption Problem (Graphics Card) help Graphics Corruption Problem (Graphics Card) there So I simply didn t play any games Apart from a small period of time in October Where it worked for some reason then started screwing up again I haven t been able to play any D games I then reasoned that it struggled on the D factor So I started playing D games like CnC RA and Baldurs Gate But then recently they started to screw up too So I stopped playing games But now tonight the card started screwing up on the desktop So I disabled the card More information While the card was away getting quot fixed quot my stepdad lent me a spare card of his which he no longer has an Nvidia When i put it in the motherboard wouldn t recognise it So we did everything we reinstalled windows we did the drivers again and we finally came to the conclusion that it was the motherboard So we put in a new mobo and it worked This card worked without a hitch I believe that this may have been caused by not uninstalling the previous drivers before putting in the new card However what I want to know is Was this error caused definitely by the card And will I have to get a new mobo when I get my new graphics card Christmas YAY I would like help and advice Thank you nbsp

My Nvidia graphics card has a small cooling fan that is not always working right and I want to uninstall that card and use the
onboard graphics that was installed when i first got the desktop. Will the onboard graphics take the place of the uninstalled card or will I have to reinstall the graphic desktop before I unstalled the bad graphics card.

Any help will be appreciated with this problem. I have installed a new graphics card in my PCI Express slot that is compatible to the slot. The card is a BFG Tech GeForce 7300 GS OC. When I rebooted the new hardware was detected and the drivers were installed to the video controller and the display adapter. But then the computer still detects new hardware it calls a PCI device. It cannot find any drivers from the installation CD or online for the hardware. Every time I disable it in device manager,it pops up again when I reboot. Before I installed the new card I removed the old display drivers and hardware.

My system is a Dell Dimension E510.
Intel Pentium D CPU 2.66 Gh
1 Gb memory
Windows XP Home w SP2

I have worked on this on my own for days so I am ready to listen to suggestions. Thanks!

Hello everyone

I've posted this in hardware, however it's also software related. I've recently fitted a VTX3D 7750 Radeon graphics card to my PC, now after installing the drivers I got black bars around all four sides of the screen and Catalyst Control Centre was of no use and only displayed an option for Hydravision.
My Monitor hasn't been detected and I therefore can't change the black bars using the overscan option. I have the latest drivers and have un/reinstalled countless times.
What am I doing wrong?

All Help appreciated

Hi , I recently installed Command and conquer red alert 3 but am having graphics issues.

The problem :
When I try and play a game in either skirmish or the tutorial , in fact any aspect of the game , my selected units produce a solid colour duplicate of themselves , almost like a shadow.

Here is a picture to help explain :
I installed the latest Nvidia drivers for my 7600GT a week ago so I tried rolling back to the previous set but the problem is the same.

Please help , I really want to play this game !

I just got a new ATI All-in-Wonder X800XL and everytime i try and go into a game (single or multiplayer) in Call of Duty 2, from 10 seconds to 5 minutes, the screen just goes blank and I must restart. I also have Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Age of Empires 3, both work fine. I DID NOT OVERCLOCK IT! Using Everest Home Edition, the temps don't go any higher than 69C on the GPU, when I quickly minimized the game. Would updating the drivers help. I just used the CD drivers. And when I looked at the ATI website, I found the drivers but which one do I use. Click here to see the page. And how do i see which version I have. When I go into the control panel and click about I see version 1.2. But that almost seems to old. Or do I have to reinstall Call of Duty 2?

When I boot in Safe Mode everything is working properly, (or so it seems) except refresh and scrolling is slow and not smooth, but maybe it's because Windows uses basic VGA driver. I am not really sure because I haven't used Safe Mode for a long time.

it works on safe mode, i reckon.. you can't ever ignore XP problem(or virus nd so)
why dont you scan your computer with SUPERANTISPYWARE

I recently bought a Nvidia GTX 660Ti to replace my older 560Ti. However, the card is having some major issues. The moment I had it installed and launched a game, I was getting noticeable lines running down the screen every time I looked at a black area or cut-scene, and the card would make a high pitched squeal-like noise. I then decided to download driver cleaner to completely get rid of previous ATi and Nvidia driver that may have been present on my PC. This stopped the high-pitched squeal and lines in some games but they are still present in others. I then tried to turn on adaptive v-sync as suggested by another forum but to no success, the lines and squealing are still there on some games. Can anyone help me?

Is overheating a common problem with hp laptops? Is it also common that it causes a "separation" from the video/graphics card?

A:Solved: hp laptop graphics card problem

If you do a Google search for HP laptop graphics reflow, you will find many pages on repairing HP Laptops with graphics problems. Repeated heating and cooling of the graphics processor IC causes failed solder joints between the IC and motherboard. Reflow resoldering usually solved the problem.

I am having a bit of trouble installing a graphics card (ATI Radeon 9800 Pro. AGP 238 MB 4x/8x Support to be exact) on my Dimension 4550. My old graphics card is a crummy nVidia GeForce MX400 64 MB. I basically did the typical installation, that is, uninstalled the old drivers for the GeForce, removed it, and attached the ATI. When I booted the machine, my monitor remains asleep (black screen). I'm not sure what exactly I did wrong. But I was wondering if anyone could give me a pointer or two.
My computer specifications in an attached text file.

Note: I also just updated my BIOs to AO8. Problem persists.

also go to RUN and type dxdiag check it there is an option there to set to MMX.

My PC is showing just a black screen, I know it is not the monitor as I have checked it on another PC. I want to know if it is possible to install a seperate graphics card without disabling the onboard one. The reason I ask that is that cannot get anything from the onboard one, or will I have to replace the motherboard? If I have to do that will I lose everything I have on my PC. If I can replace would I then be able to disable the onboard one?

Any help really appreciated,

A:Solved: New Graphics Card Install Problem

UFO said:

I have a 2000 Gateway with Win98SE on it whose graphics card (an NVIDIA TNT 64M thing,) was heading for the great substrate in the sky - there were dark horizontal stripes matching every dark element on the screen at any given time, and a general loss of contrast no matter what I did with the monitor.

I got an ATI Radeon 9200 card (it's via some weird licensee that calls the card "Xtasy" for no apparent reason,) at 256M, and supposedly compatible.

When I boot up, the hardware wizard looks for new driver, finds it on the CD-ROM, installs it, then prompts for a reboot. [Since my PC always hangs up on "Windows is shutting down" when you try a restart (another exciting problem I'll never solve,) I always pick "No" and just select Shutdown from the Start menu afterward.]

When the system comes back up it prompts for a driver again. If I go through with the install wizard again, it not surprisingly results in another driver showing up under the first in the "Device Manager" box, but with "Secondary" in parenthesis after it.

When I bail out of that second driver install wizard prompt and stick with the one I've already done, an error message pops up saying something to the effect that "The ATI Control Panel cannot load because the ATI driver is not installed or the ATI driver is not functioning properly. Control Panel is shutting down."

If I go through the second install and end up with the "Secondary" driver installed, when I reboot I get The Blue Screen Of Death and a Fatal Exception 0D error, Windows refuses to load, and have to do the Adaptec GoBack thing and start over again.

I'm wondering if I've got a bad ATI card, a faulty/incompatible driver, or (what I suspect, since it's the most troublesome,) a complex system compatibility problem.

My next step will be to take the ATI card back and exchange it for an NVIDIA GE-FORCE, probably a 128M because the ATI card was the only 256 one I could find that was still supposedly compatible with Windows 98SE.

Why can't this stuff just work right the first time around?

"Plug and Pray," indeed.

Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can offer.

I sometimes get issues not unlike your first problem after I've updated drivers for my Saphire ATI x1600 pro. To fix it I usually just leave it and it will fix itself after a reboot or two.

As for the colour problem, I don't know. That is very strange...

Send it back if I were you and choose a better one. 128mb VRAM isn't very much these days. Try and get at least 256mb.

Hi, I have a EVGA e-GeForce 7600GT 256 MB PCIe Video Card which supports the SLI technology allowing me to link up 2 or more graphics cards for greater performance. Now this card has DDR3 memory.

Which card?? "A card with DDR3 memory", or "A thingy with a red switch on it" tell us just as much.
But if it's not another 7600 GT you're trying to SLi, just forget it, especially if you're going to buy the other card.

I have a compaq computer(Athlon 64 3500+) that has a built in graphics card. I was looking into throwing in a XFX GeForce 7600GS 256MB PCI Express x16 Video Card (Dual DVI S-Video). I have a pci-e slot open so I know that isn't going to be a problem. The only thing I am worried about is that this new graphics card isn't going to have a vga output, which is the only connection my monitor has. Will I still be able to plug my monitor into the original vga output slot while using my new graphics card? If not, does anybody know how well a dvi to vga adapter works?

I have an HP Envy Desktop 750-114 and an HP V242h monitor. Colors, etc. on the monitor are flat, dull and almost gray. It's been like this since we got the computer about a year ago. I tweaked the contrast, etc., on the monitor and it's a little better, but still not great. So, do I need a new graphics card for the computer, or a new monitor? I'm afraid if I buy a new monitor, it'll be the same, dull and flat. If a new graphics card is needed, what would be a good one, and would I need a new power supply? My son does like to do gaming, so one that is good for gaming would be preferred. Thanks in advance!

A:Which graphics card for a 3+ monitor set up?

... Honestly. **** Dell.

For running 4 monitors, you need:
a ~120&#8364; motherboard (high quality costs a little extra)
a ~70-150-200 &#8364; CPU
a pair of ~30 &#8364; graphics cards.

A:Add third monitor - graphics card?

I'm not personally into multiple monitors. (My main system uses a 28" UHD one.)

This card looks like it'd work:

EVGA GeForce GT 710 DirectX 12 02G-P3-2717-KR 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Video Card -

(eVGA GT 710). I suggest replacing the old Acer since it only does 1680X1050. With a third VS228H-P. you'd need a cable that works with the min HDMI port on the card. There are cheaper GT 7XX cards, but I'm not sure whether any support monitors.

Hi all, new here.
I recently purchased a Chimei 22 inch wide screen monitor. When I hooked it up to my computer the images aren't really all that great, with the small text being blurry. When I try to change my display settings there is no option for 1680 x 1050. Is this because of my graphics card? How do I find out if my graphics card will support this monitor? Did I make a bad purchase?
Any help appreciated.

A:New monitor and graphics card???

First off, don't set the Monitor to the MAX.
Why because if your Video Card can't go that high you won't be able to use 1680x1050. In this case replace video card.

What video card are you using? This is not onboard video, better not be?

1. Go into Windows Control Panel and click on Display
2. Select Appearance Tab
3. Click on Effects
4. Check box: Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts
5. Go from Standard to ClearType (for LCD Monitors)
6. Go into Settings
7. Click Advance
8. Click on Adapter then on List all Modes

In the List all Modes you'll see how high your video card can go. Don't worry about refresh rates with LCD monitors. Those are for CRT tube.

Word of caution
Make sure Color quality is set to Highest (32-bit)
Don't max out your video card to support the LCD panel.

A:Solved: PNY GeForce 6200 graphics card installation problem

It looks like you are using an installer utility that comes with the graphics card that is causing a problem.

Let's try installing the driver a different way. Insert the install CD and exit the install utility if it autoruns. Open Device Manager (right click MyComputer, click Manage, click Device Manager). Right click the unknown graphics adapter and click Update Driver or install.

If the hardware update wizard asks to connect to the internet, choose No. Then choose install the software automatically. Windows should find the driver on the CD and install it.

I have a Nvidia GTX 580 GPU

I have just bought a Dell UltraSharp U2713HM - running a resolution at 2560*1440.I know it's not a gaming screen, but I still manage to run games pretty well.

But I'm thinking. If I get a better GPU will that make the games run even better at 2560*1440 ?


A:Graphics card and monitor resolution ?

Yes. In general a larger, more powerful graphics card will run games better at higher resolution. It can get much more complicated than that, but in general, this is the deal.

For best advice about what to expect in higher performance from any particular card over your 580 (which is no slouch by the way) you could ask here, or better, over in the Gaming forum where all the graphics-heads hang out. They start talking about Frame Rates and Cuda Cores and I just glaze over!

For instance, when you compare your 580 to my 660 you can see that in some categories your card is better:

Due to a shoulder injury I need to type and edit photos standing up. I thought I'd upgrade to a large high resolution monitor but wonder if my present system could handle it. The 19" monitor I'm using has a 1440 x 900 native resolution but I want a bigger monitor, maybe 30"and the resolutions are now 1920 x 1200 and 2650 x 1440 at the bigger sizes for photo editing. My HDTV, which I have linked via HDMI is a nice size but the resolution makes everything look very crude. I just can't see what I'm doing.

Yes you should be fine with that card as long as you don't do any gaming. PCs always look worse on TVs through HDMI, so with a large monitor (even at 1080p) you will see a world of difference.

HI, Im new to this forum but I really need help.
My computer has been working for quite some time now, about 5 years, and suddenly i turn it on and usually when i turn my computer on, it hums very loudly, beeps, and then starts to come on. Today, I turned my computer on and it just kept on humming and the monitor showed no signal. I then started fooling around with the cables, unplugging and plugging them back in and that didnt work.

So I plugged my monitor into the regular slot on the cpu and the desktop screen came on. Before my monitor was plugged into my graphics card. Now my computer is on but the hum is constant and never stops. What can I do to fix this situation?

A:Problems with cpu, monitor, and graphics card

Whilst it's on, you may decide to backup any important user data (to CD or USB Flash drive; etc)

One of the best options is to open the side panel up, and then listen to where the "humming" is specifically coming from

After turning the computer off, you also may decide to remove all internal dust
Dust on or around electronic components can cause many issues including no post issues

Dust can either be removed by high pressure air (air cans can be purchased) obviously performed outdoors (really a lot of dust can be built up over 5 years, even 6 months!)
Removing all internal dust, could quite possibly fix the issue of humming

A:New Monitor New Graphics Card Issues!

I would suggest you try (while using the on-board card), connecting to the internet; going to the manufacturers website of your video card and downloading/installing the most recent drivers. Then, disable your on-board video in Device manager, and shutdown your computer. Attach the 9500GT and restart your computer; allowing Windows to detect and install it.

You may also want to go into your BIOS and disable on-board video prior to booting back into Windows with the 9500GT.

See if that helps.

The graphics card is not detecting the monitor. the monitor's a crt which the graphics card does not support, the graphics card is a ge-force 7600 by xfx, I used a bridge from the graphics card package. this allows the crt connection to attach to the lcd port on the graphics card. The monitor looses connection and the monitor lcd drops its color as soon as I hook it up to the bridge. I think that may be the problem, but I'm not sure.

A:Monitor not starting after new graphics card

Make sure you have connected the power supply to the video cards if there is such a connection. Since you only have a 230 watt supply, your system may not support the new card anyway. What is your system's specs and who makes it?

I installed a monitor formerly used with a dell C521.. worked very well for 7 years.. I bought a new Dell 660s and use it with that same old monitor.. works very well....I wanted to salvage some material from the old C521 and hooked it up to the same monitor that had worked so well for 7 years. Message on screen tells me that I have to" hook it up to a graphics card .".... as the connection that always did work, no longer allows for any function.... What's the answer?

Does that C521 HAVE an addon Graphics card installed in it?? If it does did you plug the monitor into the GPU port or the port on the I/O plate??
