BSOD, I think caused by the Nvidia Graphics Card

Q: BSOD, I think caused by the Nvidia Graphics Card

Hello everyone I own an Asus n jv notebook with a core i processor GB of RAM and two video cardsne integrated from Intel and one from Nvidia GT M I had some problems with powering it since the beginning and took it to the service On return on Ubuntu everything was fine but after reinstalling windows I have often Blue Screens I think this is because of the M graphic card because when it starts it has optimus so the dedicated card starts only when needed then the BSOD occurs I have windows Bit on installing I let him install the drivers from Windows update and I only installed the nvidia driver from the asus site ASUSTeK Computer Inc - Notebooks - ASUS N Jv Everything was fine for a couple of Card Graphics think I by caused BSOD, the Nvidia hours then suddenly the BSOD appeared or the system just froze I attached the files to spot the BSOD, I think caused by the Nvidia Graphics Card problem and want to thank you very much Best BSOD, I think caused by the Nvidia Graphics Card Regards Dan

Preferred Solution: BSOD, I think caused by the Nvidia Graphics Card

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.)

A: BSOD, I think caused by the Nvidia Graphics Card

Please go to Device Manager and see what devices have issues (I think it'll be your USB controller and your PCI controller). As such, please visit the Asus support website and download and install the motherboard/chipset drivers for your system.

There are 45 to 60 (or more) hotfixes available from Windows Update. Your system only has 2. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL the updates for your system.

2 of the BSOD's are STOP 0x116's and they point at your nVidia card/drivers. Please follow the troubleshooting advice at this link: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting not 100% certain, I suspect the ks.sys BSOD will be taken care of by Windows Update.

Your ATK Hotkey ATK0101 ACPI UTILITY Driver(atk64amd.sys) is from 2006, please update it from the Asus Support website.

I have been suffering from BSOD crashes for a while now and they seem to be really random. Sometimes my computer will give me BSOD on startup, can be several times in a row or just the once. Other times, my computer will have been on for a while and I will be in the middle of something when it crashes.
It seems to do it more often with the graphics card installed, hence my suspicions of there being something amiss there... I have uninstalled and reinstalled the card physically and done the same with the drivers. The drivers are up to date.
Can anyone help interpret the attached dump files and point me in the right direction?

Many thanks


A:BSOD caused by graphics card, or is there something else amiss?

Hi Welcome to TSF

Now pink lines showing up that could be hardware issue as well as some wires not plugged in properly but lets see

so your mini dump is pointing to

Image name: nvlddmkm.sys
Timestamp: Thu Oct 20 02:35:50 2011 (4E9FEB76)

Download "Driver sweeper"
install it
download latest drivers from Nvidia's website but not install them just save them to a folder
Boot into safe mode
Uninstall current video drivers using driver sweeper
boot into safe mode again and install the video drivers

Run driver verifier to see if it catches something (your system will run a lil slower) but use it as normal

A:Z400 Desktop - NVIDIA Graphics Card BSOD after Win 10

@Samantha24?, welcome to the forum. I have had symptoms very similar to those you are experiencing when gaming.  The solution to my problems was installing all of the patches that I found for the games.  Also, games place a lot of stress on the video card. The fact that you were able to play the games without any problems with Win 7 and are having problems with Win 10 is not surprising.  Win 10 is a complete different operating system.  It is not even close to Win 7.  Remember, Win 8 and 8.1 have been released since Win 7.  You should run HP and Windows Updates to assure the software and drivers are up to date.

I'm not a gamer, so the only programs I use that require my nvidia geforce gt550M graphics card are Google Earth and Google Sketchup.  I get the BSOD everytime within seconds after opening either program.   I also tried a graphics card benchmark tool, which caused the same thing.

Hi for the last months ive been trying to fix a but Nvidia Random not card with restarts card graphics graphics AMD problem that ive been having with my computer about months ago I did a major pc upgrade where i replaced my motherboard processor ram heat sink power supply and case the only things I used from the original computer where HDD's SDD and my AMD radeon HD gb Now ive have the most strange issue where i can be watching a video off the HDD or surfing the web on youtube etc and not long after I Random restarts with AMD graphics card but not Nvidia graphics card start the activity my computer will turn off like if I had flicked the switch on the back of the power supply and then it boots back up again and will run fine until i start up an activity again and then it does exactly the same thing and reboots there is no BSOD shown nor Dumps Created Ive tried many things to sort this out and have RMA'ed the power supply and the motherboard the motherboard wasn't a direct replacement as they didn't sell my original board anymore which was a gigabyte ga-x -ud now i have an asus p x deluxe I have tried only plugging in one HDD SSD and then tried a spare HDD when that failed i have tried one ram stick at a time and still nothing now heres where it gets strange whilst trying to rule out differnt hardware i switched my AMD card out for a very old mb pcie x nvidia graphics and since then my computer has been running marvelously i can have it playing videos for hours days even although i havent properly tested for days and not a single problem at all The main difference between the cards is obiously one is nvidia and the other is AMD the nvidia one doesn't require any form of external power from the power supply where as the AMD one requires pin connectors and the AMD card is Massively more powerful when compared to the nvidia one the AMD one can run Practically all new titles on max with ease whereas the nividia card struggles to play gta sa on medium so i think ive narrowed it down to a driver error with amd and another driver with my new board a damaged AMD card a second dodgy power supply or something else that i haven't thought about or discovered yet Has anyone else had a similar problem or have any suggetions as im pretty much all out of ideas at this point and its starting to grind my gears that i cant use my expensive new computer as it should be Any help is appreciated Joe P S sorry about any spelling or punctuation mistakes made but Im very tired at the time of writing this and will be going to bed

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.

Hi i have Vista Home Premium x64 and i am getting BSOD's at random. sometimes on youtube and most prominently during game play.
I went into msconfig -> Services, Disabled the MS services and saw only 3 there. 2 of them are stopped. and the only one running was Nvidia Display Driver Service.

And i am assuming that it is the one causing my BSOD's?

Please help me on this one

A:BSOD caused by Nvidia Drivers?

Hi, almightynugget, and welcome to the forums.

Not sure how long you have been using Windows, but that service could very well indeed be the cause of your problems. So could about 100,0000 other things on your computer. Not sure really why you think a service is causing your problems. I am not trying to be snotty, but your assumption is way off base until you either provide us with more information as to *why* you think this is the cause, or else explain why you suspect a service in the first place.

Also, if you have tweaked services because you think you're getting a performance gain, untweak them and see if the problem disappears...and I ma *dead* serious about that - tweaking Vista services is a bad bad idea unless you are 100% positive that the services you have tweaked are not dependent upon / being depended upon by something else.

To help trouble shoot, first of all, we need your hardware specs, and also the driver version you are using for your video card.

For the past few days loading any 3d programs resulted in a freezing of the screen for 30 seconds or so. Lately, this has been replaced by very big graphics glitches forcing a restart. The last time, on boot, the screen had 6 green dashed lines. ( I think meaning fried video ram or something)

It did not want to go to to XP unless booted in safe mode.

Borrowed a friends old X1300 and it works. So definately a graphics card problem

Spec: P5K-E Wifi/ap
Asus 8800GTS 320MB
Intel C2D stock at 2.66 OCed to 3.5
2GB GeiL ram
NZXT lexa case

Just wondering what could have caused it.

Will probably replace with a 4850 but dont want it to happen again


A:Graphics card broken- what may have caused it?

Could be a number of things. Could be heat, could be lack of power, could be overclocking, could be an internal failure of the card - electronics like everything else will fail at some point.

Whenever I try to play Smite by HiRez Studios, I sometimes get a bluescreen error. It says the cause of the problem is my NVIDIA Geforce driver called "nvkflt". I have attached the .zip file. I don't know how I can fix this problem. Thanks in advance for any help/advice you may have for me.

A:BSOD caused by NVIDIA GeForce driver

It may not be the driver issue only, but as you are having this thought, let us try to have a closer look.

Uninstall your installed display driver using DDU.

Then download the driver 347.09 WHQL ....
Follow NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems to install the driver.

Let us know for any further BSOD. More troubleshooting may be needed depending to the situation.

A:BSOD possibly caused by new NVIDIA driver. Not sure what to do.

Try this first:
Go to the nVidia website and download the most recent WQHL driver for your video card.
Run the program. (I'm writing this from memory - so things may be slightly different)
After it extracts the files you will be given the option to do a 'Custom Install'. Do that.
Leave all the component boxes checked, but down near the bottom there will be a box that says "Perform a Clean Installation". Check that box.
Also check the box if it asks if you want to delete all your old settings. That is the part you really want to get done here.
Then run the installer. See if that fixes it.

A:T420s Nvidia Graphics Card & Express Card Question...

The T420s with Nvidia GPU has two graphics card that can switch on the fly, if you only want the discrete gpu, just go into your bios menu under graphics there is an option to select discrete.With the Nvidia Optimus (which is what you have), it can switch between Nvidia and Intel GPU depending on your application needs. This will allow you to conserve battery or power. Expresscard slot 34 mm slot is occupied by the card reader that you ordered. What you are talking about within the ram slot cover, is the mPCIe slot, which can be occupied by a mSATA drive.

Hello, mrAfi and welcome to Sevenforums. I will see if I can be of any help. Could you tell me if that model uses Optimus technology? Does it switch between the on board graphics and the Dedicated card? You had 1 dump file recently. all ther others were several months old. I looked at a few of the older dumps and they seemed to be the same as what you have now.

This is your recent dump file


Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.

Arg4: 0000000000000002, Optional internal context dependent data.
A TDR failure (time delay and recovery) means the drivers crashed, but did not recover within the time allotted by Windows. So, Windows assumed a graphics failure and shut down to protect your computer. That is common with switchable graphics. This is your current driver.

I think you can see that your driver needs updating. The problem is that many of the manufacturers alter the graphics drivers to make them work the way they designed their computer to work. So, usually a driver download from anywhere other than MSI won't work correctly. You should be able to download the driver for your particular machine from MSI. I believe this is your computer, MSI Global - The best gaming gears maker in the world. If it is, please download and install new graphics drivers listed for your machine. I would suggest you uninstall the older drivers and clean up the older drivers which are left over by following this Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling. When you run DDU please be sure to only select Nvidia Graphics drivers.

I would also make sure and monitor the CPU and Graphics temps at all times.

Also, please open an elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

You can also make sure you have the latest Direct X from here How to install the latest version of DirectX amd also make sure your Windows updates are current.

hi, usually my computer starts right up and the monitor lights up as well. sometimes tho, the computer seems to start, but the monitor on light keeps flashing and monitor doesnt light up. I hear the motherboard beep ok, then I hear the windows music playing (the welcome to windows 7 screen music) so it seems the computer function is working, just the monitor doesnt light up. so I hit reset and it works fine. happens about every 7 or 8 boot ups. suggestions?

The computer works fine when using it for everyday stuff but whenever I try to run a game Slap! BSOD. I tried to diagnose the problem myself so ran the DX diag tool;

After running the test direct 3 d function the blue screen error was as follows;

Any help would be really appreciated, thanks in advance,

A:BSOD caused by 3d graphics?


1. You can try to uninstall your display drivers via Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs
Then download a new driver and reinstall. Depending on your graphics card you can download a new driver here: nVidia Drivers
(I am presuming you have an Asus motherboard with an nVidia display card?)

2. Download and run this application: BSOD_XP_v1.3_jcgriff2_PROD.exe.
Once it has finished running zip the folder TSF_XP_Support which can be found in your Documents folder.
Attach the zipped file to your next post.

3. I also read on another forum that you can also try switching off Asus OSD and Splendid by going to Control Panel->Display-> Settings-> Advanced-> ASUS

Let us know how it goes.

I've had my HP Pavilion DV7 laptop for about four years and have never had an issue with blue screens until now. The first one occurred about a month ago, but after a restart everything seemed to be ok so I didn't worry about it. It happened again two days ago, and then again today.

I'm not sure what triggered them, they just happen randomly, even if the Nvidia chip isn't in use. The one that happened two days ago was while I was using Firefox, and today when I woke it up from sleep. I'm able to play games that use the chip, if that matters.

The chip is a Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 2GB. I believe the attached zip archive and BlueScreenView report have all the required information, but I will be happy to provide anything else that is needed to help diagnose the issue.

I have Win 7 64 bit OS, HP P6-2203a computer with CPU/GPU combined A8-8550,8GB memory and a HD7450 graphics card,the GPU intergrated into the GPU is HD7560D.I started to get a message that my graphics driver needed to be updated so I downloaded the latest AMD catalyst driver from the AMD site with their auto download program.I installed it but the next time I booted the problems began with win 7 freezing at startup or a black screen I tried startup repair and restored to an earlier time but to no avail,I kept getting blue screens. Although it worked when in safemode but I cant seem to get into safemode again to try and fix it?

A:AMD graphics driver has caused BSoD

You should have downloaded the driver from the HP website. OEMs often "tinker" with the hardware in their PCs, or optimize their drivers for a particular PC. This means that you can't use the drivers from the AMD website (or you shouldn't) on an OEM computer. It can lead to problems.

Incidentally, I've never seen a message from my system telling me to update my graphics drivers, and I run an old version of AMD drivers. Were you getting popups or something?

Also, if you're getting freezing at startup, you're going to have to get into safe mode to do this... somehow.

I read on another forum site that a Nvidia Geforce GT630 with 1GB dedicated memory is better than a Nvidia Geforce GT620 with 2GB dedicated memory. Is this true, surely more memory would be a bigger advantage than the slight speed difference between models?


A:Better Nvidia Graphics card

Usually higher models would perform better than their predecessors but there can be positives and negatives with both.

For example:
ZOTAC GeForce GT 620 2GB DDR3
Clock rate - 700 MHz
Shader Clock - 1400 MHz
Memory Clock - 1066 MHz
Memory Size - 2GB
Memory Interface - 64-bit
Memory Type - DDR3

ZOTAC GeForce GT 630 1GB DDR3
Core clock - 810 MHz
Shader Clock - 1620 MHz
Memory Clock - 1333 MHz
Memory Size - 1GB
Memory Interface - 128-bit
Memory Type - DDR3

1. 630 has higher Clock speeds
2. 630 has bigger Memory Interface
3. Size of memory won't have much impact unless you're using a high resolution or multiple monitors

So as you will see i think my GPU is fairly old but i would like to know if there was anyway to boost Perfomance

Here is the DxDiag Results

The Nvidia Control Panel

Also Would It be posssible to increase the dedictated Video Memory(i have checked the bios it is not there so dont tell me to check)
I would also like to know if you think this graphics card HERE is a good one for my PC Or This one im on a budget of about $80 to $90

A:Nvidia Graphics Card Help

You can not increase dedicated video memory, it is what it is. 512 MB

The system (motherboard) can share memory with the video card, my MSI shares 2 GB giving me a total of 4 GB of graphics memory.

Maybe save a little more money before you make a choice.

A:Nvidia Graphics card

Nvidia only supplies chipsets. Since they don't build the graphics cards, they don't support them.

I would check with the manufacturer of your video card and try the drivers from them. Usually the manufacturers tweak the drivers a little specifically for their cards.

Is there anything that I need to do in order to make the switch easy do I have to uninstall drivers before I install the new card or what?

Yes, I would suggest that you uninstall ATI drivers & Catalyst Control Center(and anything to do with ATI) prior to installing the new card. After that it's an easy switch, install the graphics card, the latest Nvidia drivers, sofware & utilities, and you're good to go.

when turning on my computer it starts up goes to my desktop display is 32bit colour after about 5 seconds screen goes blank then comes on again but display is now 8bit colour.
I go into the display menu and change it back to 32bit wich is fine until windows has to re-start
it then goes back to 8bit.
Have taken the card out checked the contacts made sure everything is secure but it still happens on re-start
Has anyone any ideas what could be the problem do i need a new graphics card it about two years old

A:nvidia graphics card

Sounds more like a driver issue. Have you uninstalled and installed the latest video driers for the card?

Latest driver can be found here:
Which appears to be done at this very moment.

You can try this site for the drivers:

Make sure you use Add or Remove Programs to uninstall the current video drivers.

Hi I just bought a new nvidia graphics card it was a GT geforce I wanted to install it but I had a few problems it needed an extra power source comming from the power box to power the card computer startup not windows but right when I press the power button un reconization details The graphics card that I bought came with a supplemental Graphics Nvidia card power cord that I had to Nvidia Graphics card connect to the computer the cord has to directly connect to the power box I can t connect directly to the powerbox I found female connectors from the power box they are all whole large connectors and the one from my graphics card is only hole small FEMALE connection if you haven t caught on female and female connectors don t connect so is there anyway of connecting the powerbox to the graphics card because I m guessing it should be that missing connection that causes stress on the mother board which slow boot the computer powers on when I press the on button but makes that sound like it s going up and down on a rollercoaster if you don t get what I mean then it s like vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv oh loses power again vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv again vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv oh come on vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv resumes normal operation finally it boots up this is what the boot process Nvidia Graphics card is like please excuse my bad sense of logical order Sorry to the fourm admins that they had to endure that am I breaking one of this fourm s rules explained in my linux OS does not reconize the card and only reconizes the old integrated card if you don t know what that means then it means that I can t take the graphics card out because it s built in the computer s motherboard again sorry to everyone for the exessive capitalization and sorry to the admins too hope someone can help me thanks in advance nbsp

recently upgraded my pc from windows vista 32 bit to a windows 7 32 bit. Problem is that my graphics card (nvidia geforce 9800gtx)keeps stopping and i get an error thats says" Display driver stopped responding and has stopped Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 257.33 stopped responding and has successfully recovered" I usually get this error or i get the blue screen of death keep in mind this never happen when i had vista so i know it is windows 7. Also the driver is the latest driver from nvidia/ Can someone tell me how to fix it because I do not want to go back to vista and spent $120 on windows 7.

A:Windows 7/ nvidia graphics card

Also i Found this solution from Larry D. Lawerence but the problem is that windows have a preconfigure driver for my nvidia 9800gtx graphics card so everytime i uninstall the drive/restart my pc it automatically installs the driver
1. Control Panel=>Windows Update=>Change Settings=>"Download updates but let me choose whether to install them".
2. Download the latest driver for your card from the nvidia website.
3. Go to Device Manager, select your display adaptor, and uninstall it, choose to also delete drivers when prompted.
4. Reboot computer into safe mode by pressing f8 when the computer boots, when prompted to install new display driver choose "never install a driver for this device"
5. Navigate to c:\windows\system32\drivers\ and rename the file nvlddmkm.sys to nvlddmkm_old.sys. Take note of the date of this file
6. Navigate to c:\windows\system32 and rename any other file of the same date as nvlddmkm.sys which begins with the letters 'nv'
For example:
nvcplui.exe becomes nvcplui_old.exe
nvd3dumx.dll becomes nvd3dumx_old.exe
etc..etc..etc..Repeat for all files with the same date as the file you found in step 5, they begin with the letters 'nv'
If it is too tedious to rename all the files, you can simply move them to a different folder.
6a. For 64bit Vista / 7, repeat step 6 in c:\windows\sysWOW64
7. Reboot to normal Windows, if prompted again to install a driver choose "never install a driver for this device.
8. Install the driver which you downloaded from the nvidia website.

Hey, I've been looking for a good but not overpriced graphics card for my new computer, which frankly has a terrible card which comes with it. I was wondering if the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti was any good, the most graphically intensive game I will be running on it is Skyrim.

So do you think it's good, and if so which graphics level (Low, Medium, High, Very High) do you think I'd be able to run it on?


Here are my current system specs.

Intel Core i5 3330 @ 3.00GHz
Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit

Hi, I spent 2 days browsing for a solution before posting this. My Nvidia graphics card just disappeared. It's gone from the device manager as well.I've tried every solution posted on this forums and on Nvidia and every other website. Didn't work.When I start installing through GeForce, or a direct download from HP drivers support I get an 'No compatible hardware was found' message. Tried unisntalling Nvidia and reinstalling windows and intel chipsets.Tried the DDU program.Tried everything.   Please if there is any new fix for this issue, kindly share it with me.

ON my BFG graphics card there is an HDTV TV OUT port on it. It also came with an HDTV breakout cable. I have an Xbox 360 Elite and there are 2 sets of audio video cables. The RED,WHITE,YELLOW cable and the BLUE,GREEN,RED HD cable. The colours on the HDTV breakout cable match the colours on the XBOX's HD cables so i figured they mite work. Do any of you know if i will be able to connect my Xbox 360 to my flat screen monitor?

A:BFG nvidia 8500 GT graphics card

The Blue, Red and Green cables are component video cards, capable of carrying a HD signal. The Red and White of the other cable are for the left and right audio channels, and the Yellow is composite video, good for non HD signals.

If you are trying to use the cables to connect the computer or the XBOX to a TV or to a monitor that has component or composite connections on the back of it then they will work with either device.

But if you are trying to connect the XBOX through the computer to display on the monitor then that won't work. You'd need to have a video card or separate PCI card that supports TV input not just output.

I am wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I am running Windows 8 64-bit with an old Nvidia 8800GTX card. I have a new HD 7970 card. When I put the new card in, I can't get the OS to boot. It just says "Windows ecountered a problem" and will just do this over and over. I can't preinstall the ATI drivers before I put the card in. Can anyone offer some advice? Thanks.

You have to uninstall all the old NVIDIA stuff first. This includes the drivers and all software. Once you are sure you are clean, then change the cards and boot into win 8. Once there, you can install your new ATI drivers.

I think my newly bought NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS graphics card is faulty. Is there any signs or ways to test whether it is or not.

The reason I think it's faulty is because I had a pretty messed up PC about two weeks after installing it. I eventually had to reinstall the old card (NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200) and do a full system recovery (reverting back to the factory setup). Without the 7600 everything seems to be working as it should.

I have a Lenovo z ideapad laptop which has a Nivdia GT M graphics card and an Intel R HD graphics Currently running Windows nbsp nbsp It had recently come to my attentoin by graphics not l... my being detected Nvidia Card is that i was getting a significantly lower FPS when gaming upon further investigation i Nvidia graphics Card is not being detected by my l... realised that the games were all running using the Intel graphics and not the Nvidia I then realised that i was unable to open the Nvidia control panel I immediatley tried to find some solutions and as i had not updated the drivers in some time i went to the Nvidia website to try and download the latest driver for my graphics card after i uninstalled the previous versions using DDU and of course the installation failed in the first step displaying an error message saying ''The graphics driver could not find compatible hadware'' I also tried to install older versions of the driver compatible with windows but it still displays the same error message Geforce Experience did not work and reinstallation of it failed nbsp nbsp 'Display adapters' in device manager only shows the Intel R HD graphics and does not show any signs of the nvidia graphics card i have also read in other forums that people have found their drivers under 'other devices' but this does not appear for me in device manager It's almost as if the Nvidia graphics card never existed nbsp nbsp I finally visited the lenovo website to try and find the drivers here as i thought they may have been modified slightly for it to work on the laptops nbsp nvidia driver for Lenovo Z nbsp However form what i saw the latest drivers i could find only supports up to windows and was released in What would happen if i tried to install this driver on my windows device nbsp nbsp nbsp I also found a video detailing how to edit the INF files to allow the computer to recognise the GPU but im afraid of messing with those things and My VEN ID was which he mentions in the comment that that ID would pose a problem when carrying this process out for reasons i dont know nbsp https www youtube com watch v HKwFHU ka I nbsp I am unsure of exactly when this problem arised and so i cannot use the restore points However i do know that i never had this problem when running windows and the graphics card ran perfectly should i consider rolling back to windows if its possible nbsp As of now I'm stumped and wondering if i should factory reset my computer and pray something good happens i only know the very basics about computers so this has me worried Apologies for the long message any help would be MUCH Appreciated Thank You nbsp CPU intel R core TM i - QM GHz nbsp nbsp

At the moment I have a PCI-E ATI Radeon X800GT card but I also have a PCI nVidia FX5500 card which I want to use just to add another monitor really.

Is it possible to do so as I have heard about not being able to use a ATI and a Nvidia card at the same time. My friend has my nVidia FX5500 card at the moment so I can't actually test to see if it will work.

I got a new GPU from amazon for 710 card New graphics 2GB GT new problems, Nvidia about So I got a ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GT GB PCIe x Put it in my computer and i immediately had problems First problem Computer wouldn't turn on Kept cycling on and off repeatedly so I turned my computer off by unplugging it And this time I unplugged the hard drive to see if my computer would boot without it worked but i noticed the bios got completely reset so i had to manually plug the hard drive back in while the computer was on and change the bios settings to enable hard drive controller and some other settings like virtualization and speedstep now it boots up fine without cycling on and off or needing the hard drive unplugged I guess the capacitors needed to be charged for the first time and they were never primed or tested A restart and windows won't boot past windows startup logo Forgot to disable integrated graphics driver so i boot into safe mode and uninstall it let it install VGA drivers Now ive got the driver installed from the nvidia New graphics card new problems, Nvidia GT 710 2GB website without the D vision or HDMI audio drivers and other things i wont be using i installed PhysX though but now I get random display driver crashes IF DWM AERO is turned on i made a seperate partition and never had any crashes on a windows XP -install It crashes and successfully recovers Sometimes its when opening a game right clicking my desktop to bring up context menu or opening a new tab pausing a youtube video Playing a really long youtube video but it doesnt crash with DWM AERO turned off at all ever instead I get lots of crackly audio on youtube IF my taskbar is showing and not quot hidden quot but I open my start menu with the taskbar showing and it stops the crackling audio And hovering over a link to make a extended text bubble appear makes the audio start crackling as well this doesnt happen if DWM AERO is on so I have two choices random driver crashes and recovers or crackly audio doing certain things Ive tried the drivers from the CD DVD and NVIDIA's drivers and theres no difference it also doesnt make a different if i underclock my CPU and GPU to the lowest they can go or overclock them to the highest they can go I also even tried raising my PSU voltage with the potentiometer adjustment dial with a micro precision screwdriver so from v to v and my - v and v and v are locked to the same dial so I got V for v within spec below v And it helped my CPU overclock a tiny bit more mhz more but nothing else changed besides that to be honest its a very old computer One of the voltage adjustment knobs don't seem to do anything at all seems broken none of the voltages change when i adjust it so only the main pot does anything For some reason even with DWM aero off or on I dont get any crashes during playing a game of any kind only when I go to start a game like clicking the exe occasionally i'll get a crash but it usually doesnt make the game crash and i can just ignore it The audio crackling thing happens no matter how I play audio from my computer USB bluetooth wireless adapter USB headset mm jack front or rear happens anyways but only when DWM AERO is disabled Happens if I watch p to p FPS videos or even playing audio in WMP or VLC Sometimes even when playing games although gameplay isnt affected Surprisingly the GPU can overclock by huge amounts and still need no voltage adjustment and be stable no visual artifacts or glitches up to mhz core and mhz memory without any voltage change almost a shear increase in both memory and core And FPS Stock is mhz core and mhz memory And the temp barely rises by even C when overclocked this much so I flashed the bios to be permanently overclocked to and and its been fine no change in stability temp is only C under load for several hours no fan but it still stays cool good

By any chance did you install the NVIDIA beta drivers? If so they are broken for the 8600GT right now (been documented EVERYWHERE)

The only way to fix it is to system restore back before the driver was installed OR a reinstall of Windows

replaced cable

What kind of noise? It's probably a fan bearing - most likely a failing fan. Not uncommon for it to die at a certain age. Consider replacing the cooling fan with an aftermarket one or purchasing a new graphics card.

If not,remove it.

think the title says it all.... i need a betetr graphics card, but i know almost nothing about them, only requirements are it must be PCI express, and must support advanced pixel shading 2.0 (or something like that im sure you guys who know what your on about will know what i mean) and id like it to be nvidia because i have an nvidia chgipset and iv got it in my head (probably wrongly) that it will work better if its an nvidia card on an nvidia chipset....

A:decent (preferably Nvidia) graphics card for <80?

I noticed you were in the UK so I took the liberty to check a UK site for you.

Palit GeForce 9800GT 1GB ?79.89 inc VAT
Gigabyte GeForce GT 240 512MB ?72.85 inc VAT

Here are a couple to start you off....The 9800GT is a better card (Clockspeed and RAM) and for that price you really can't go wrong. With either card you're going to need to make sure your PSU (Power Supply) can handle it. With the 9800GT you'll need at least a 400W. With the 240 at least a 450W. If you can find a GTS 250 at a reasonable price, I'd go for that as it's a repackaged 9800GTX (Even better than the GT). To put things into perspective the 240 is basically a repackaging of the 9600.

It really depends on what you're planning to use it for of course. Is there a specific game you're aiming to play with this card? Either way, you're going to want to go with the best bang for your buck and at the moment in your price range, this is it.

Here's a little lesson for nVidia cards:

The second number in the series (8x00, 9x00, 2x0) is the most important. The first number is basically the generation. The second number tells you whether the card is a low end, mid-grade or high end card. You don't want anything below a 6 (ie. 8200, 9400, 230). They are low end cards. There are of course exceptions to the rule because nVidia stupidly rebranded using a different number scheme. For instance, the 250 is a mid-range card even though it has a number below 6. The mid-grade cards are ok for people on a budget. Some really do offer fantastic performance for their price range. Feel free to ask if you have any other questions

I have a Nvidia GeForce2 mx200 64mb graphics card and am running Windows XP. I am having problems installing the graphics card. I have downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia and the manufacturers of the card, Jetway, but am still unable to install it. When i look at the card on device manager i get 'This device cannot start. (Code 10)' however i know the card works as i had no problems when i was using Windows 98 orWindows ME. I have uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times, removed it from the AGP slot and replaced, there is nothing else i can think of that i could try.
If anyone has any other ideas, i will try anything, i am looking to take it into a computer shop tomorrow to be looked at so any ideas before then???

Hi I have an ASUS laptop running on Windows 8 64 bit with i5-3210M and nVidia 645M 2GB. I sometimes like to game on my laptop and i play games like Skyrim, COH, CSGO, Bioshock, Metro, etc. And they tend to run smoothly when I set them on medium to low quality. But recently, I think it is drivers or graphics card problem... My laptop keeps on getting warm when I am not even gaming and When I DO game I constantly get less than 10 fps. I have tried reinstalling drivers and deleting all nVidia drivers and install a new one but the problem is still here. I might have to take it to repair if nothing else works.

So I was running Windows 7 fine for 3 weeks or so on that standard driver but the display was kinda fuzzy and I couldn't play dvd's so I finally installed my nvidia drivers. Shortly after I got all kinds of problems, freezing, crashing etc. Is there a solution to this or do I just need to live with the standard graphics card driver?

computer: HP dv2819nr
graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7150M

A:crashes with my nvidia graphics card driver

Just to be clear is this the driver you downloaded? NVIDIA DRIVERS 179.48 BETA
(this is the Windows 7 32 bit version so if you have 64 bit, it will be a different driver)

You've probably found this already but here is some more info from HP Finding Software and Drivers After Changing the Operating System to Windows 7 HP Pavilion dv2819nr Entertainment Notebook PC - HP technical support (Turkey - English)

If it is, can you get the dump files and maybe repost your question in the Crashes and Debugging forum? There are a lot of experts in there who will analyze your dump files for you and they can go from there

Also, make sure you add your FULL system specs so we know what we are looking at.

Here is the link to how to post a dump file

While your problem is related to the graphics card (and you rightly posted in here), it may help you out if you are getting crashes to get the files analyzed.
