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.

A:Enabling onboard graphics/Disabling graphics card method

That is just how you should do that, it's unremarkable.

Should not be a problem at all, it's routine, you could add another card later and be just fine after disabling on-board again.

Hello there, I am looking for a dirt cheap, Windows 7 suitable graphics card for use with a PC designed for multimedia purposes (watching films, listening to music etc). I would like to be able to use the full visual effects Windows 7 has to offer. It must have an S-video output and be compatible with the Asus M3A78-CM Motherboard. I have 1 PCI Express x 1 slot free and 2 x PCI 2.2 slots free.

Please provide some suggestions, doesn't have to be brand new.

Either that, or something like the Gadmei XGA/VGA LCD TV BOX. I want to connect my PC with the motherboard mentioned previously to my CRT TV (Panasonic TX-28PL4 Quintrix). The motherboard has onboard graphics via dvi and vga outputs. The TV has an S-VHS plug on the front, as well as RCA Audio/Video sockets. On the rear, it has 1 spare scart input.

What are your thoughts?

A:Graphics Card/Onboard Graphics for Media Centre PC

the graphics card listed in my specs may only be 64MB, but it surprisingly runs aero.
If that seems to be not quite what you're looking for, another card I would recommend is the nvidia 8400GS. It may be 512MB, but thats about as high as it's specs go, but you will need a more powerful PSU (300W+). The 8400GS is about ?30 and a vga to RCA adapter seems to be about ?5 (i recommend you buy the adapter before the card).
The one in my specs just has a VGA port, but the 8400GS has vga, dvi and hdmi (i think the hdmi may need some further cabling in the case, not sure though)

NB (the card listed in my system specs may actually be the GeForce 7200GS, all system information programs tell me that it could be both and there's no sticker on it. all i know for (kinda) certain is that its 64MB )

A:Onboard graphics detected not graphics card

Hi , The option is the one where the nvidia card and intel on-board are shown, and the BIOS should select the nvidia card as priority if it can, and has a choice.
It's sometimes known as 'Primary Video' & the option is called PEG.
Make sure you save the settings when you exit or they won't be changed from before.

I was wondering is it possible to use onboard graphics from my motherboard and use my graphics card at the same time? Also my motherboard states that the onboard graphics is dependent on the cpu. What exactly does this mean how does my cpu effect the onboard graphics

A:Can I use onboard graphics with graphics card

No, usually one can't use both onboard and add-in graphics adapters, by adding the plug-in card the onboard automatically gets disabled, at least on all the computers I've done it with.

Some newer CPUs do have things combined such as AMD CPUs that include ATI video, usual quick explanation of making things that way is for speed. AMD owns ATI Graphics.

I run a Lenovo thinkpad r61 15.4' laptop with 1,256mb ram and intel x3100 graphics which says it can support up to 384mb of video graphics. I have a question that i'm trying to get help on, my card only says 256mb. So I'm wondering if that due to having 1gb of ram in one slot and 256mb in the other slot. Is it just using ram from the 256mb slot ? So would taking the 256 out and falling back to 1gb ram improve the graphics ? I havent found any information on that issue and only know that having 2gb of ram can get the card to reach its prime. I just thought I'd ask, I've updated my card to the new driver and cant find any newer one that what I have already. Anyway thanks

A:Intel X3100 Gpu Not Using 384mb graphics

No taking the 256 MB out won't help anything, and in fact will lower the available amount of video memory. Intel graphics (all the recent ones) use dynamic memory that uses a set amount to start and then goes up to a set limit based on the amount of system memory, the less system memory the lower the upper limit for video.

I have aGigabyte GA-MA785GM-UD2H motherboard on order. The onboard graphics are AMD HD4200 which I believe are pretty good. I also have a nVidia GeForce 8400 GS which I bought when I upgraded to a HD monitor.

Simple question which should I use when the new MB is installed?

A:New MB - use onboard graphics or old card?

Pretty much either or as they both perform about the same. The only advantage the 8400GS will have is that it won't use system ram.

Hey, recently, I have came up with an idea of a fourth monitor, but my GPU (970) supports only three, which ones that I own. It has fourth one but I don't have the right cables for it for now.
I noticed that my motherboard has two open video ports, one being VGA which I needed. So, I tried just plugging it in and seeing what happens but it doesn't seem to work, I have tried looking for results around the internet and BIOS but they don't seem to work. The three monitors which I have plugged into my GPU, work perfectly fine, but, as I said, the motherboard's VGA port doesn't work. I have heard that such thing definitely is possible, but I cannot find out what I need to do.

Does anyone have an answer to this?

Probably a dumb question (sorry) but trying to do some homework before my new system and monitor arrive.

Monitor (Dell U2713HM) will have multiple input possibilities, including DVI-D, Displayport and HDMI.

Graphics card (GeForce GTX 745) will have DVI-D and HDMI outputs.

Computer will also have onboard Displayport 1.2 output.

I assume I am going to connect the monitor and graphics card directly via DVI-D, but my questions are these:

Is there going to be any difference between using the onboard DisplayPort vs the graphics card DVI-D connection? If I use the onboard Displayport as the connection to the monitor, is this bypassing my graphics card altogether or is the graphics card working in conjunction with the DisplayPort in some way?

Thanks.
 

A:Which to use? Onboard DisplayPort or DVI-D on graphics card?

Personally, if you have a dedicated card then use the ports on that card. I would assume (only an assumption without knowing more detailed system specs) that the onboard display port is associated with an integrated APU / GPU setup.

As far as DVI-D and HDMI go, they are essentially the same as far as graphics are concerned, the main difference is that HDMI also carries audio (DVI-D is only video). If you have speakers connected to normal audio ports then it makes no difference. If you are using a screen / TV with its own speakers then HDMI is probably a better option as it means less cables.

Well here is the deal. When I put windows XP on my PC my on-board graphics card stopped working. Well that was all fine and dandy because I installed a PCI-E graphics card. Well, its been about 3 years now and my graphics card is done. One of the capacitors blew up.

Now I am trying to reinstall my on-board until I am able to purchase a new graphics card. Well It is not letting me use my on-board graphics card. When I go to install it, it is telling me it cannot find the driver. I think this is happening because I uninstalled windows Vista, and that graphics card is only compatible with VISTA.

If there is any way to get around this please help! Thanks so much for taking your time to read this. Have a good day!

If the onboard graphics are not working, how are you getting this message on the screen in the first place? In other words, if you are getting this message, the onboard graphics are not dead. When you installed Windows XP, you should have gone to the PC manufacturer's website to locate the motherboard chipset, sound, LAN, graphics, etc., drivers. If the PC is a custom or self built computer, then you would go to the motherboard manufacturer's website for these drivers. Anytime you install any version of Windows you should be doing this.

Try doing it now.

I decided to upgrade to a separate video card in my HP p6710f PC with ATI Radeon HD 4200 onboard graphics. The card I purchased is an MSI Radeon R7 240. I installed the card and although the fan ran there was no video output. I don't know if the card is DOA or another problem. If I disable the onboard graphics in device manager or in the bios before installing the new card and the new card is in fact DOA, how can I ever regain output from the onboard graphics again for output to the monitor? It seems to me I would be dead in the water with a black screen and no way to do anything. If anyone can help and knows the answers to this problem it would be greatly appreciated!

A:Once Onboard Graphics Are Disabled, What If New Video Card is DOA?

You need to disable onboard graphics after installing a video card and starting the computer for the first time.
Also make sure the video cable is properly connected to the new card.

Would anyone happen to know if the onboard video should be disabled in the BIOS when installing a new graphics card in a PCIExp slot. If it is left enabled, the PC should find the new card and boot from it, correct?

yes it should auto detect your setup...if it does not THEN you might need to enable/disable in bios

I have a 1 yr-old Dell Dimension 5150 with on-board graphics and sound. I have recently purchased a GeForce 6600 128MB PCI-E graphics card to try and beef it up a bit.

I have inserted the card correctly into the PCI-E slot but my problem is in installing the driver. I'm certain that I have downloaded the correct driver, but as I run the set-up program I get the following error message:

The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.

And that's it - all my hopes of playing a decent game dashed at the first hurdle. Is there anyone who may be able to help?

Many thanks

hey everyone

my sisters emachine of 3 yrs of age has finally had its first problem, the onboard
video card seems to have failed, in an attempt i bought a cheap graphics card
hoping to resolve the problem, a"256MB AGP Geforce Fx5200", ive been told that i need to disable the onboard graphics card first, before the other card can take over, but the whole reason why i even bought the card, was because i cant see her monitor, so there is no way i can change the settings, i am not new to computers, but i am very new to this problem, any info or suggestions as to what i can do to fix the problemswould be very much appreciated, thnx
 

A:No monitor, How do i disable onboard graphics card

Disable the Onboard Grapphix in DEVICE MANAGER. Install your new card. Install the drivers. Be sure to hook the VGA cable up to the correct outlet.

Hi guys, I'm a noob here, and was just wondering if there was any way to change my onboard graphics card in my laptop? My laptop is a Acer Aspire 5520, with the default Nvidia Geforce 7000m.

I'm usually alright with it, but I'm trying to start playing serious games (Arkham Asylum ), and I get this error "1x32 fb render target issue".

I really hope this is more of a software issue than anything.

Have you looked to see if your current graphics chipset is capable of running your games. That error IS usually a software issue and you may not have to change at all
IF you have to change, it isnt the kind of change that most laptop owners (unless pretty handy and unless you dont mind voiding your warranty) can or should do.

If my motherboard currently has an intigrated graphics card, but has a PCI-E slot, do I need to do anything special after inserteing my graphics card and installing the drivers, or should it just work right away?
 

A:How do you switch from an integrated graphics card to an "external" graphics card?

Most modern PCs will detect the new installation of the PCI graphics card and automatically disable the onboard graphics, so yes it should just work.

If for some reason you have problems, you may have to make a change in the bios, I cannot be more specific because each bios is different depending on manufacturer, and model of the motherboard.

Install the card, connect your monitor to it and boot up, when you get into Windows install the driver and reboot.

A:Onboard HDMI port inconflict of graphics card

The HDMI onboard must also be connected to the onboard Video circuitry as well.
By plugging in the addon (Geforece 6800 GT) Asus Motherboard setup has concluded that you do not require the onboard Video (anything) and turned it off automatically (and you cannot change that setting)

One option would be to have a addon Video Card that also has HDMI on it.
Or purchase a PCI HDMI compatible card.

I've just installed a genuine copy of Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit & made sure my Nvidia 8800GTS was attached correctly to the motherboard at the time of installation. When Vista started up, I went into DXDIAG & it says that the graphics are 14mb integrated as opposed to 640mb Nvidia 8800GTS which I have connected.

I then tried inserting the driver CD but that didn't work either.

I'm all out of ideas. I'd appreciate any help regarding this, thanks.

Also,I just wondered... How is it even showing a display on the monitor if the monitor is attached to the 8800GTS?

A:[SOLVED] Vista Using Onboard Graphics Instead Of 8800GTS Card

In the BIOS I found a section called INTEGRATED PERIPHERALS.

Here is the list which was in that section:

SATA RAID/AHCI MODE
SATA PORT0-3 NATIVE MODE
USB CONTROLLER
USB 2.0 CONTROLLER
USB KEYBOARD SUPPORT
USB MOUSE SUPPORT
LEGACY USB STORAGE DETECT
AZALIA CODEC
ONBOARD H/W LAN
SMART LAN
ONBOARD LAN BOOT ROM
ONBOARD SATA/IDE DEVICE
ONBOARD SATA/IDE CTRL MODE
ONBOARD SERIAL PORT 1
ONBOARD PARALLEL PORT

So as far as I can tell, there's no option there for enabling or disabling onboard graphics. I'm using a Gigabyte GA P35C DS3R Socket 775 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard.

The reason for asking is I seem to have a somewhat faulty graphics card that doesn't work in PCIEX16 slots but works in PCIEX4 slots (It is supposed to work with PCIEX16 2.0).

In WEI it scores 6.8 in both graphics scores, in 3Dmark11 it gets 1488 which I think are decent enough scores?

But I'm wondering whether these benchmarks would be way better if it was working in a PCIEX16 slot?
 

A:How much difference is there between a graphics card running in PCIEX16 and PCIEX4?

An X16 full slot has 16 data lanes that can be used to transfer data.
With the PCIE 2.0 spec,the data throughput is doubled for twice as
much potential data transfer.
A slot that is limited to 4x only has access to 4 data lanes.
Under load that can really limit the amount of data transfer for an X16 card.
For regular desktop work,you probably won't see a difference.
But for gaming and other high load applications,you will see the difference.

That is normal and is not your RAM but your card's VRAM, unless you see "Shared" in the location where mine says 32GB (system RAM) then you have no issues.

Hope this clears it up for you, you might want to also check in your device manager to make sure you have also disabled the on-board GPU in the BIOS.

A:external graphics card

There are a few (very few) external graphics cards that can be purchased. I found little information except that I believe ASUS made/makes one that is an express card connected device. I suggest that you do (as I just did) a Google for 'external graphics cards" and see if you can get the information you need.
JFI I did not find anything that gave any of the devices a recommendation for other than casual games. I don't think you will find anything for your laptop that will put Crysis, FarCry 2, Fallout 3 etc on your laptop in anything but the lower resolutions. On the other hand those types of games may not be what you're interested in.
Good luck

A:were can i get an external graphics card to replace this?

External video cards do not exist. If your system is a desktop (versus a laptop), you can get a much, much better graphics card to go in a AGP/PCI/PCI-E slot.

I have a Dell 6000D laptop with radeon X300 on board graphics module. I am currently running Win 7 home premium.
I ran a test to see if it would run Win 10, the results failed because of the X300. I checked and it has the current driver.
Is it possible to use a USB graphics card to make it run Win 10?

A:external graphics card for laptop to run win 10

That thing is ancient. While I suppose it would be possible to use a usb to vga adapter to hook up an external graphics card, Idk how well they work. For the best experience you would want a usb 3.0 port which I know that thing does not have. There is also no guarantee it would pass the test, until I looked just now I didn't even know you could do usb to vga/dvi/hdmi. I am unsure if the test would take a usb graphics card and if it did that doesn't remove the x300 from the computer, you MIGHT be able to uninstall it and get lucky. But the honest to god truth is you should get a new laptop. Even if it were possible it isn't worth it :P

A:How to connect external Graphics Card

1. Yes but it won't be a good idea given the specs of that laptop especially the low end i3 which would bottleneck graphics performance.
2. A spare mPCIe or Express Slot
3. Yes adapters and an external PSU to power the card.
4. Anything but your laptop will create a bottleneck.

DIY eGPU experiences

It would be better to invest in a gaming PC, it's not worth pairing an external GPU with such a low end laptop.

Does External graphics card laptop increase the gaming performance ?
 

A:External graphics Card For laptop

Yes to an extent, but for the price you might as well buy a gaming laptop to begin with.

The price of the systems can be moderately low now if you use the basic GPU Dock station that can help but they lower the performance of said card and usually can only be used easily from home.

But to answer your question, yes it will.

I've got analog to convert to digital, AND vice versa...

I want to get some analog video movies into the pc (no current video capture).

I want also to play DVD's on the pc, and route the signal to a non-high-def TV in the living room.

Can both of these tasks be accomplished with a graphics card/hardware upgrade, or must I go with an external convertor, which seems to start at $200 for doing these two tasks...

A:USB External Graphics Card for Laptops

No. USB (even USB 3) is too damn slow to let a decent graphic card do its job. Expresscard slots or mini PCIe should be able to do something better, but afaik, there is not a lot of market for these things.

While none here would recommend it, as it's difficult to do and risky for your hardware, this page gives some introductory info and links to more in-depth instructions to how you can make your own external graphic card dock (what components to buy mainly, it's not like you make it from scratch).
Do at your own risk.

Hello!

My laptop:

This is the product i bought:

https://www.kjell.com/se/sortiment/d...ill-vga-p69146

My intention was to use the Displayport to connect one external display, and then use the USB - VGA adapter do connect an additional external display. As I connect the USB-VGA adapter, Windows 7 tries to install the drivers but keeps failing. There seem to be no downloadable drivers for this product, except for Windows 10.

Can anyone help me figuring out what is causing this problem? I really need two external monitors in order to work from home.

Abhi1010 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Sorry for the bad news, but you are operating under a misunderstanding.Unlike desktop PCs, laptops do not use video "cards"; instead, they use video chips that are permanently attached to either video modules, or to the laptop system board. These are not customer-replaceable parts. So basically, there is no way to add a graphics "card".

Hi,

I added a new graphics card to a system and Windows (Ultimate x64) is not detecting it. I don't see anything new or unknown in the device manager. BIOS is set to use the external PEG (PCI-E card) if present, if not use the onboard one.

I see the fan spinning, so I know power is going to the card.

The mobo is Gigabyte GA-M68M-S2P rev 2.3 and the card is a basic Nvdia GF7200GS. It's a PCI-E card that doesn't require power from the PSU.

I updated BIOS to the latest flash and it is set up to use the onboard card UNLESS there's an external PCI-E one. If I choose to use ONLY the external one, then I won't have video out and have to reset BIOS.

Any suggestion? Could it be a faulty mobo slot? It's all I can think about at this time.

Thanks in advance!

Hi xenocider , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As this was also discussed on this thread. 
Yoga 900 USB Type C is not Thunderbolt 3 compatible 
 
As per article: 


The new USB Type-C port supports:
- USB 3.0
- native display port 1.2 video output
- VGA/HDMI output using a Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (which is a separate purchase)(Ref: page 8 of https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_900-13isk_ug_en_201509.pdf)
Adding to the above:  Gigabit Ethernet via any of several 3rd party USB-C-to-USB3 adapters that also feature an RJ45 jack. 
 
Articles for reviews: 
USB 3.1 Type-C port. There are no indications that this is a Gen. 2 Type-C port (10 Gbps) with Thunderbolt capability 
Lenovo Yoga 900 reviews 

 

As I can see , although it is not possible at the moment future upgrades may happen.
Hope this answered your query.

Hey guys. I recently bought an Acer Travelmate 5740. I didn't realise how bad the 4500MHD graphics were and I have heard about external graphics cards and 'switchable graphics'.

I did a few googles but obviously I am searching the wrong stuff. I have a chipset that allows switchable graphics, so is there a way of upgrading my graphics to something better? I don't mind spending a bit of money to get a lot more bang for my buck and I have heard ATI has external graphics that sync with internal ones or something.

Would I be able to upgrade this card (or remove it for a better one) could I pay a professional to do that for me, and where would I buy the new GPU?

Thanks for helping.

A:Intel 4500MHD Switchable graphics/external card?

Welcome to SevenForums.

Here is an article on basically what "switchable" Graphics in Laptops is all about. Nvidia automates switchable mobile graphics with Optimus - TechSpot News

I realize this is about Nvidia but it also should apply with any combination of GPU's.

No not really since the GPU chips are soldered into your motherboard. So even if you could find someone capable of removing the 4500MHD chip he would also need to find and purchase a higher quality GPU chip that most likely wouldn't be able to simply be re-soldered into the old chips socket, then their could be all kinds of compatibility issues I would think.
Basically your stuck with what you have.

I have only been able to find this setup that allows for the use of a full size PCI-e graphics card.
http://www.magma.com/expressbox1.asp

The only video I could find on how it is setup http://www.externalgraphicscard.com/

This is really not a solution for your issue since this requires a laptop with a PCMCIA port, the MagmaBox1, additional LCD and a full size better graphic's card.

Also below this thread you'll see other threads on your graphics chip and also switchable graphics information.
Hope this helps answer some of your questions and I haven't made it to confusing as you can see I have edited this post(several times) trying to provide the best information available . Fabe

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.

A:Whats a Good Graphics card for Gaming and using Adobe Software-Graphics

7...

I've done a lot of research on this because I built a new system back in August. While I am not much of a gamer, I needed a very good NLE machine. However, the card I chose is quite the gamer card but had all the extras I needed to run Adobe Video Collection.

I picked the Connect 3D Radeon X850XT Platinum card from Tigerdirect. At the time it was $350 but I know it's cheaper now. It's got everything you need for a demanding application like Premiere Pro 1.5 and its related software. 256MB of GDDR3 memory and dual DVI outs. I highly recommend this card. I've been using it since the start of September with Adobe and it's great.

Your CPU and memory are a bit more of an important factor with rendering and burning though. My new PC has a 3.4Ghz P4 and 2GB of 533Mhz dual channel RAM. It's an exceptional increase in speed and productivity over my old 2.4Ghz and 512 Rambus.

The comparison you are making between GPU brands is pointless as a diagnostic. The MAIN difference I can see is that one card requires external power, and the other one does not. A proper diagnostic would be to test another GPU that requires external power.

I've heard that the specific PSU you bought will sometimes not power all the hardware it is supposed so.
People saying it could barely power a SSD, or even an extra fan.

My thoughts. Try using another PSU, try using a similar GPU. Use your old PSU and see if it still happens for starters.

But since my existing graphics card is gone and there is no on board graphics card on my PC I am not able to uninstall existing graphics card and install new one.

Could some one please suggest me what to do in this situation to see some thing in monitor so that in can start doing Uninstall/Installtions.?

Thank you very much for your replies in advance. I really apprecite it.

Thanks
Satish.
 

A:How to install graphics card when the existing graphics card in not working.

You could always stick the new one in and boot up in safe mode. Then proceed to uninstall all the remnant drivers. That *shouldn't* cause any problems, but it may be choppy when you boot up.(I've had this happen before, swapping a Riva TNT2 for a GF6600).

A:Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 won't detect external graphics card in PCI-E Slot

One problem that is common when installing these big video cards into Micro-ATX motherboards is that you may not get the card to fully seat properly because some obstruction is holding it up.

Carefully check the entire card/MB area to see if there is anything that may be propping the card up.
Remove the card and re-seat it looking and listening carefully to hear the rear tang on the video card "click" into place.

I just wanted to add that when I go into Device Manager there is no problem with the CD/DVD. I tried updating the driver through DM and Windows says the driver is up to date. I popped in a CD and it reads and plays no problem.

I have a new HP Pavillion Slimline Model s5-1224 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on SP1 with Intel Pentium 2.8 Ghz processor, 6 GB Ram and and a 900 GB (800 GB free) HD. I have an external graphics card (Triton TRI-UV150) connected via USB to accomodate Dual HP 2010 Wide LCD monitors.

When the graphics card is connected to the CPU, it takes upwards of 1-2 minutes to load the homepage (Google). Without the graphics card connection, home page load is almost instantaneous.

I have uninstalled/re-installed the graphics card driver with the help of the manufacturers' tech support and the issue is still not resolved. Manufacturer states that "the driver cannot cause slow page loads" but it only happens when the card is connected to the CPU.

Please advise.

A:External Graphics Card Causing Slow Home Page Loads

What graphic card is it and have you tried updating the video drivers?

What I really want to know is how to disable my Radeon HD 4350 graphics card, so that I can swap to Intel HD on-board graphics.

This is so I can compare the two on their Windows Experience Index.

Thanks

Friends,

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?
