AMD 7000 Series

Q: AMD 7000 Series

How many of you are running AMD 7000 Series in your gaming PC's. I will really appreciate if you people can tell your benchmark scores cause in reviews they use latest possible hardware which not everyone runs so can't really rely on them.

I've read loads of reviews about these and come to conclusion that 7870 is best bet at the moment to go for as 7970 is way too expensive.

Moment of truth, shall I ditch my 5770 crossfire and buy one 7870 or wait for prices to go down further.

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.)

I would hold, the two current series out right now Nvidia's as well.
These are stepping stone improvements. I honestly believe the next generation will come quickly (fall/winter)
and will be a much larger improvement in real world performance.

The best numbers to look at would be at hardware compare where they just take the actual features of the card and put them head to head for you.

Honestly the 7970 is a serious beast it actually blows away my current card that handles bf3 maxed without complaint. Which is actually kind of my point too though your crossfire rig should be getting pretty good frames even if it's a middle card that kind of sucks at anti-aliasing. I'm guessing your overall experience gaming is not too different from mine right now. (see my specs)
So why bother getting in a rush?
I could be wrong about this, but I am seriously expecting a 7 series nvidia and a 8xxx ati before the end of the year.
...and at the moment I don't see the actual need to upgrade considering the list of games on the horizon and the fact most of them have rather middle range recommended reqs.

The new bioshock I think is among the heaviest reqs of any games comming out before the end of summer anyhow.

Normally just to be fair I would recommend a nvidia equiv for you.
Right now there sadly isn't one, even the gtx680 is slower not by a huge amount but it is slower, and more expensive. So unless you wanted to play with some heavy physx games I don't really see why you would want nvidia right now.

I am running Windows 7 build 7000, and I am having trouble trying to get my video card to work. The card is an ATI 7000 series VE PCI. It is recognized only as a standard VGA adaptor. Are there any known drivers out there. I tried importing my XP driver, but it failed to work as well.

Welcome to the Se7en Forums

Since many things in Vista are compatible with Windows 7, I did a search for a vista driver for your video card and came up empty. If any of our resident gurus know of a trick or two for this, feel free to contribute.

I'm asking in behalf of a friend who is (as of the moment) using a 64mb Radeon 7000 Series AGP with Windows 7 x32. Are there any moded drivers around for it lately? Currently he is using the XP driver version When he tries to log-off he get's a BSOD with the ATI driver...Any ideas here?

He is using the AGP as a temporary one and will opt to have a 256 or 512mb later. Thanks in advance for the help and advices.


A:ATI 64mb Radeon 7000 Series AGP

No there aren't any modded drivers for cards that old, there is nothing to mod as there is nothing in the new drivers that would support them. The best he can hope for is to use the last XP driver,


which is a few years newer than what he has now.

I have recently experimented flickering in my screen. I purchased this laptop like a month ago.
Acording to some answers in here , One recommendation is to turn off the Dell extended battery life. But on Windows10 I do not have that option...What i see is Dell Power Manager Lite.
It looks like on direct AC and battery fully charged I do not present the flickering. If I unplugged the AC cable and battery goes lower than 85% I start seeing the annoying flickering.

Hi Charlierca
Thanks for writing to us. 
When did the issue start? Have you made any hardware or software changes? 
Please try an external monitor if available. 
Almost all the parts in this model are quite complicated to remove including the battery. 
The noise can be from fan or the hard drive. 
Is it possible to record the buzzing noise and send to us. ? /
Should your system be under warranty we can get it repaired. 
Await your response.

Is this a common experience -- that is, do touchscreens go bad just after the warranty expires?

I have recently installed Windows 7 on my Inspiron 15 7000 - 7559. I managed to found most of the drivers and get the hardware working.
However for the Touchpad, I cannot find driver or software for it. Windows 7 just uses the default drivers PS/2 Compatible Mouse. When in the Dell drivers site, it does not have drivers for input devices.
It works fine as a regular touchpad but it does not have the additional function such as two finger scrolling etc. 
This is still fine to me until I realized that my palm will accidentally hit the touchpad when typing. Looking  at my older dell laptops, I saw that there is a palm rejection feature for the Dell touchpad.
Windows detect this trackpad as Atmel Maxtouch.
Can anyone please advise me were to find a compatible driver to solve this issue?

I just bought a new laptop a few days ago (no exact model, but it's the 17" 7000 series model, and it has a $999.99 MSRP) and while listening to music, I noticed the bass output is very weak to non-existent. I tried playing with every single setting in Dell Audio/MaxxAudio control panel but to no avail. Even tried reinstalling the Realtek Audio Driver, again solved nothing. My headphones work just fine as I tested them on my other devices and am getting bass output with them.
Any help would be appreciated. I really love this model, but I hope I am not looking at a manufacturing defect. The other aspects of the audio sounds fine otherwise, just lacking bass that would make my music enjoyable since the majority of music I listen to has a lot of bass.

I have an HP Pavilion DV7T-7000 Series Quad Edidion laptop, and the screen cracked. I need to replace it, but no sites have the full hd 1920 x 1080 version that I need. All they have to offer is the WXGA+ version (1600 x 900). I found this:
Would this be compatible with my model? I realize it is not for my particular model, but the connector is on the bottom left, as mine is. If anyone has any suggestions or advice it would be helpful.

So I was hoping to be able to add a second monitor with my Dell Inspiron, but I didn't have an extra monitor just lying around, so I was hoping to be able to use my old laptop for the same purpose. I tried hooking up the two computers with an HDMI cable, but there was no response. I'm fairly certain that the issue lies in the Inspiron's Display Adapter, which uses the Intel graphics card instead of the Nvidia one that is also installed. Is there some way to change the display adapter that the computer uses?
Or, if I'm just completely wrong about what's causing my problem, is there something else that could be making it so that my two laptops won't connect via HDMI?

I have a Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559.   It is 5 months old.  The left hinge started clicking and now everytime my computer opens the computer is starting to come apart.  I have the premium warrenty.  I have called 3 times today and talked to different people.  I have been disconnected 3 times with no one calling me back.  They say that the hinges are not covered under warrenty.  It hasn't been dropped or mistreated.   I have been a dell customer for over 15 years so i'm not sure  why they are giving me a hard time or not calling me back.    Also while gaming my fan is running super hot.    

Does anyone have any suggestions or a number I should call to get actual decent help.

Thank You ,

A:Hinge and Fan issue Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559 NOT HAPPY ATM

Does the system overheat? Does it freeze or turn off automatically when its hot? What applications are you using when the fan issue is noticed? Is the fan noisy? Does it run with noise from the time the system is turned on? Are there any bluescreens / system crashes?
Update the BIOS - - restart the system and check the fan functionality.

Just got my new laptop today, and of course first thing I do is open it up and put in an SSD. Well it looks like the "holder" that you put the drive in before screwing it into the actual laptop is warped... Photo attached. If you look, towards the left of the pic is where the screw is, then the caddy slowly protrudes out, then goes back in closer to the second screw. Do you guys think this is cause for concern (ie will it randomly one day destroy my entire laptop due to the pressure)? Or if I leave it alone should it be fine.


A:Warped HDD caddy Dell Inspiron 15 7548 (7000 series)

You could take it out, take the drive out, then use light finger pressure to straighten it out. From what I can see, it wouldn't cause me any undo concern. If the retaining screw isn't binding I wouldn't worry about it.

So I recently bought a Dell Inspiron 17 7000 series laptop and was super stoked.
Then I got home and noticed it has a lot of audio problems.  
When I plug in my external speakers I get a sharp, loud, startling crackling noise when I sometimes change windows.
More importantly, my external speakers are not working with this Dell.   The subwoofer has NO SOUND coming out at all.  The non-subwoofer speakers seem to work fine.

I tried downloading both audio drivers that were mentioned by the verifed answer in the thread here  but I get this error message each time:
Some one please help!  I spent too much on this Dell to get this problem.  Every laptop I've boughten has worked perfectly out of the box except this Dell.   

A:My external subwoofer is not working with my new Dell Inspiron 17 7000 series, please help!

TryingToFixMyDellI tried downloading both audio drivers that were mentioned by the verifed answer in the thread here 
Hello. The Inspiron 17R SE 7720 is a much older model than yours, and it has different audio hardware on the motherboard, which is why its audio driver will not install on your computer. 
I can give you a link to your audio driver but I would need to know the model of your laptop. The models that Dell has marketed under the generic name of Inspiron 17 7000 series are: Inspiron 7737, 7746, and 7778.
It also depends on which operating system is on the laptop. For example, if you have an Inspiron 7778 with Win10 64-bit, then the latest audio driver is this Realtek that was just released on Sept 5. But that driver is not meant for the other 7000 series models.
TryingToFixMyDellThe subwoofer has NO SOUND coming out at all.
I don't have any suggestions about that. In a 2.1 speaker system, the subwoofer is controlled by the cross-over in the speaker system's amp. I can't think of how the laptop would have anything to do with that, as the woofer is not connected to the laptop.
Something you can do is to compare the performance of the Realtek audio driver with that of the Windows native audio driver. Do this to switch between drivers.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked [but SEE NOTE].7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, sometimes you have to restart, sometimes not.[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]NOTE: if you have a 2-in-1 model and do not see a "High Definition Audio" option after step 6, then uncheck "Show compatible hardware". Then in step 7, if you see 2 "High Definition Audio" devices, select the 2nd one.

The internet connectivity works only wirelessly.  The direct connectivity (connecting the laptor with Cisco Router using a chord) works for sometime and goes off, and WiFi takes over.
Sounds like Dell has solution to this problem.  They tried all usual commonsense ideas and also changed the motherboard, but finally gave up or left it to fate.  There is no problem with Cisco EA3500 dual band router as I have other gadgets connected.  Tried with another another laptop (also Dell), changed chord, tried different slots in the router.
Dell 15 laptop is still covered under warranty.  
Can't Dell fix this problem?
Anyone has experienced this problem and still living with it without Dell taking initiatives to resolve?

Please share the exact model number for the laptop. There is an option to disable the wifi when an an ethernet cord is connected to the system. Ideally this option would be there in the BIOS setup. I can get our database if you can share the exact model number.

I just buy a new laptop Inspiron 13 7000 series 2-in-1. It comes with Windows 8.1. It happened (not sure why) that the volume control is frozen at the top-left corner screen with the 0% volume level, so I can not adjust the volume at all both on the keyboard and on the touch screen. 
What I have tried is below
- In control panel, sound, communications: when Windows detects communications activity
  Select "Do nothing" 
- uninstalled audio driver and leave it is automatically reinstalled after reboot
- uninstalled audio driver and install the audio driver downloaded from dell support
- do clean boot and uninstall-reinstall driver
It was resolved once when I tried pull off and push back the usb for the logitech wireless mouse. When the volume control got stuck on screen again, I tried this again but it does not help anymore.
Any suggestion please. Thank you.

I was playing a video game on my laptop around 4:30, when the keyboard suddenly stopped working. The mouse still functioned, so I tried clicking around to see if it was just a problem with the game. Then at 4:32, the mouse stopped working, too. I decided to try turning it off, but neither holding nor pressing the power button worked, so I unplugged the laptop from the charger and left it to run out of power on it's own. At 4:35, the display froze. I know this, because up until then the clock was still working. Currently, the vent fan is still running, and the screen is frozen. No keyboard buttons work, and neither the built-in trackpad nor an HDMI mouse is working.  Is there anything I can do to fix this, or do I need to send it in?The laptop was a brand new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series, with Nvidia GeForce GTX and an Intel Core i7.

Hi there,
I have a brand new (2 days old) Inspiron 15 7559. Today I went to turn it on, and it refused to power up. The backlit keyboard came on, and I noticed that the front LED would come on, then after awhile it would start blinking orange. 
I've tried it without the battery, just on AC mains; and just on the battery and the result is the same. 
I tried looking around for some information but haven't found much related to my issue. Any suggestions or easy fixes? Or is it something that needs to taken into Dell?

I am experiencing very frequent IE8 crashes. It's been happening for a while, just more frequent lately since I've been using (or trying to use) IE8 a lot more. At least once a day (Usually several times a day) while on a website, I will click a link, and IE8 will stop responding. I have to bring up taskmgr and start closing processes until IE8 either closes completely or recovers the tab(s). It does not always work either, before I had several tabs open, and when one crashed, I lost every tab except for the one I was using when the lockup occurred. Is this because I'm using the "older" version of IE8? Have problems like this been fixed?

IE7 is so much more stable for me, I never have problems with it.

Performance in 7-Series + 8-Series: Advice Needed due to the -to- bit difference I could splurge and go for an I suppose but it would be a hit to the wallet and I d have to postpone cough quot Aruban Getaway quot So I don t want to pass up on the new line of DX -only Games for Windows Age of Conan Crysis etc that have been hyped to all hell just because I stuck with price and performance instead of currency and novelty I need some help deciding Then again I could always wait until DX becomes the vogue and buy a cheaper but better card then nbsp

A:Price v. Performance in 7-Series + 8-Series: Advice Needed

Keep what you got and see what's comming next. I have a 8600GT as a stopgap until something better comes out. There has been talk of a Nvidia 256bit card to fill the gap between the 8600's and 8800's. I can't fit a 8800 in my case, if I could I would just get the 8800GTS 320mb now. If I were you, wait for the game to upgrade instead of upgrading and waiting for the game. Your X1900GT is no slouch either.

I want to invest in a SDD to replace my dying westgate harddrive. I've set my mind on Corsair but I want to know the difference between the eXtreme series and the Performance series ( According to the website, X SDDs reads a little bit faster, but the P series writes a little bit faster. The only other thing is that the P series is around 100 cheaper!

So is the X series worth the extra 100?

I'm getting really pissed off for the newer games. Some of them requires an Direct X 10 video cards to run it properly. Do you guys think 7900 SLI can run newer games smoothly such as Lost Planet? On my computer I test my system requirements and it failed for recommendations. It says that it requires Dx 10 cards to play smoothly.

A:7 series SLI versus 8 series (No SLI

I'm sure you will loose some of the gee wiz graphics not using a DX10 card but so far most game makers have been making games that use either DX9 or DX10. As far as lost planet is concerned here is whats posted on their official forums as supported vid cards.

The following is a list of video cards that our R&D labs have tested in conjunction with NVIDIA and ATI, and have been confirmed to work.
NVIDIA (DirectX 9)
GeForce 6600
GeForce 7x00 series
GeForce 8x00 series

NVIDIA (DirectX 10, requires Windows Vista)
GeForce 8x00 series

Windows XP 32-bit Driver: ForceWare 162.18 beta (July 5th)
Windows Vista 32-bit Driver: ForceWare 162.22 (July 11th, 2007)
Windows Vista 64-bit Driver: ForceWare 162.22 (July 11th, 2007)

ATI (DirectX 9)
Radeon 1650
Radeon 1800
Radeon 1950

ATI (DirectX 10, requires Windows Vista)
None currently.

For R600 (Radeon HD2900, etc.) cards there is a hot fix from ATI:Click to expand...

the 7900 is showing in that list so it looks like it should work

A:GTX 200 Series vs ATI 4000 Series...

If you want 8800GT's, the prices have dropped to about $150 average on newegg which is great considering i got mine for $250. Personally, I'm against SLI, but if you're for it and would have to make a purchase now, go with 2 8800GTS g92 as they're averaging about <$200 (MSI's 8800GTS is on newegg for $177) and they provide some performance over the 8800GT. Since the 9800GTX is basically the same performance as the 8800GTS but more expensive, then forget that.

If you can wait a while to make a purchase, I've heard that the newer 9800GTX+ will have higher stock clocks that will deliver better performance with its newer drivers too, and this card comes out in mid-July. It's supposed to be priced around $230 and it's chip is built on 55nm process. This card sounds attractive, but we'll have to wait for solid reviews of the card first.

ATI... I don't like them, so I'm sorry but I can't tell you anything about them.

will the 9 series make the $220 8800gts drop to something like $100 or will it still be $200?

A:Will the 9 series cards make the 8 series cards cheaper?

eventually, and then the 10 series will do the same to the 9 series, rinse and repeat. basically as long as its one of the fastest cards the gts will be expensive, when it becomes obsolete (relatively) its price will drop.

from the question i assume you are looking to upgrade, if you want to only spend $100 then i'd say your best bet is an OCed 7600 GT, lotsa bang for your buck, i can run FEAR with pretty high settings with just one of them.
but really, what are you looking for?

A generic audio driver gets installed with installation. If you are not happy with that the Realtek drivers works beautifully with this build and installed with no effort.

Obviously everybody will have a different experience but mine has so far been flawless.

I installed Win 7 x64 on a new computer, on the last day the beta of 7000 was available. I have Windows Updates turned on, so I thought I'd be notified of beta updates, but I just checked, and I'm still on 7000.

How/where do I download updates?

And can I install them over 7000? I assume so, since I've found messages detailing which drivers needed updating after installing 7048 etc., but I do want to be sure.

This is my first post to the forum - apologies if I've asked a question that's in the archive. I did search, but didn't come up with anything. Are there FAQs anywhere?



A:How do I upgrade from 7000?

You have to download the newer build from torrent sites, Microsoft has not released any new ones yet and they wont until May when they release the official RC1, you can upgrade to the newest build but some people have had problems doing this so it would be best to do a clean install. Another good thing about the latest build is that it wont expire until next year.

Hey guys another happy 7 user thusfar I do have a few questions, Where is windows live mail? I looked in the startmenu even searched for it with no results. And someone told me that you cannot download all windows updates is this true? I hope not and if it is I'm guessing there is a way around it. last but not least I already found a forum saying that cod4 has problems with punkbuster but does battlefield 2142 and is cod4 fixed in 7000? thats it thanks guys

A:just got build 7000

You're asking about several different things, and in this case I'd be splitting the questions up into the different forums we have here.

Ask about the games in the games forums, and as for Windows Live Mail, you'll need to get the latest Windows Live Beta to get it - Windows Mail is not included with this build for whatever reason....

What do you guys think?
I've had 7000 for at least a month and after some rocky start, everything worked out fine and the system was very reliable. But then of course I had to go for the new one, and I installed 7057.
And now everything is crashing, everyday. Yesterday my wireless card disappeared suddenly after restarting my computer (which ever since I've been scared to do). Firefox crashes everyday. Windows crashes everyday. Usually when right-click menu is involved. On top of everything I've witnessed the first bsod since the very first day I installed Vista.
What's your opinion?

A:7000 vs 7057

Did you clean install or upgrade? Some people have better luck with a clean install instead of an upgrade.

And have you tried 7048? Again, some report better stability and performance with it as opposed to 7057. Or you could always stay with 7000. I have very few problems with it.

Check ATI's website and make sure you can support multiple displays at the same time. I know that some of the slightly older video cards didn't come with that option. You may have to choose one display at a time.

Hi All,
realize someone asked this before but they resolved it by finding the original CD. I don't have the CD w/ drivers and ATI doesn't offer any drivers for windows 7 64 bit. I tried installing in compatibility mode but it failed. Any generic drivers I can use a workaround I'm not seeing? Best

(The generic VGA driver doesn't allow dual screens and the resolution doesn't fit the screen right at all). Thanks for any help

Hi benjamingrantdu , welcome to the forums, if its the radeon mobility card you have ,then im afraid you are very much out of luck win7 reqs directx 9 and above , your card does not support that you may be lucky and find an archived catylist driver but if you do find one do not expect it to work very well , aero is definitely a no no

HI  I have recently changed scanner from Scanjet 5000 to the 7000 and I can't get my scanned invoices to save in the same way.  I use barcodes on our invoices and the image has to be saved in a specific way so that our accounting system can pick up the image.    i.e. PPI - 0045265_1   All the images have to have the _1 at the end otherwise I can't see the image in the accounting system, but when I scan multiple invoices the document counter on the 7000 is now putting _2, _3 etc on the end of each one, therefore I can't see them.   Does anyone know what I am doing wrong if anything, or a way to change this?
