Preferred Solution: System doesn't recognize 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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Thunck,
Did it just stop suddenly or has it been playing up for a while ?, if you have another card can you try that or try re-seating your card, and also check to see if it is getting power, i had a problem like this and i removed the power lead from the PSU for about 5 min's, then re-connected it and it worked, dont ask me why but it did. Good luck and post your results.

A few weeks ago I reinstalled Vista because of some problems. I believe I updated all the drivers, service packs, and directx (I believe). I tried playing a game and an error message appeared, "unable to initialize direct 3D" I've searched around and tried to fix the problem but haven't found anything. Here's the dxdiag system tab:

And here is the display tab, my graphics card does not show up:

Here's a screenshot of the device manager, which gives me code 43:

Here's a screen of GPU-Z:

And Here's a screen of CPU-Z:
If there is anything else you need me to provide, just let me know. I'd really like to get this problem solved. I've reinstalled the video card drivers and it didn't help, I'm thinking it might be a BIOS problem. Any suggestions?

Hi All!

I have a nvidia graphics card (Not sure what kind, It's part of the problem) and windows 7 does not recognize it. It branded my computer with "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter."

I was wondering if there is anyway to check my graphics card in this state or fix this problem without knowing what kind of driver to update

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to seven forums. We can try going to device manager>right click on display adpater>properties>details tab>drop down menu> hardware id(first in list) Copy and Paste the hardware id string. This should allow us to figure out your video card. Or try typing in the search box sys info click on system info>then components>display. however if it is'nt reconizing it I don't think it will show up, but might as well give it a try.Thanks. Fabe

I have been looking for a Windows 7 driver for a NVIDIA Geforce Go 6800
for an Alienware Area-51 M7700 laptop. Every driver that I download from NVIDIA's website gives me the error message during the installation that it cannot find a
driver compatible with my hardware. Windows 7 has installed a generic "standard VGA adapter" which does not allow for aero functionality. Any suggestions as to how I could resolve this issue would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hello, I've been having this problem 2 days ago and it's a bit frustrating. I was just playing some games when it suddenly restarted automatically. My device manager doesn't seem to acknowledge my graphics card anymore for some apparent reason. I've tried plugging my monitor in my graphics card and it just seems like on a standby mode with the blank screen showing nothing. But when I plug my monitor to my motherboard port it shows up fine and is in the device manager. I've tried cleaning my drivers with "Driver Sweeper" then reinstalling the lastest driver for my graphics card, but that didn't do anything. I was hoping if anyone knows what's wrong with my graphics card . Thank you.

Is my graphics card burnt/broken?

EDIT:
Graphics card - Radeon x1900

A:System doesn't detect Graphics Card

OK first of all there are no drivers for Windows 7 supporting you card. Your card is not even supported by Windows Vista as support has been removed, therefore, the reason for the problems you have been experiencing is a driver issue not the card itself. You cannot use 6.5 drivers on you card, the reason why you are getting these blank screens and dropping out of games is because of the drivers.

Not the news you peobably wanted to here but an upgrade is needed the drivers which would have been used would have been Catalyst 9.3.

ATI Catalyst? Display Driver
Version 9.3

9.3 Operating System(s)

Windows Vista - 32-Bit Edition Products Supported

AMD has moved a number of DX9 ATI Radeon? graphics accelerators products to a legacy driver support structure. This change impacts Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Linux distributions. AMD has moved to a legacy software support structure for these graphics accelerator products in an effort to better focus development resources on future products.
The following products have been moved to the legacy software support structure (including Mobile and All-in-Wonder Variants):

ATI Radeon 9500 Series
ATI Radeon 9550 Series
ATI Radeon 9600 Series
ATI Radeon 9700 Series
ATI Radeon 9800 Series
ATI Radeon X300 Series
ATI Radeon X550 Series

ATI Radeon X1800 Series
ATI Radeon X1900 Series
ATI Radeon Xpress Series
ATI Radeon X1200 Series
ATI Radeon X1250 Series
ATI Radeon X2100 Series

AMD may periodically provide Windows XP and Windows Vista driver updates (for the products listed above) for critical fixes only. No new features will be provided in future driver updates. The Linux ATI Catalyst? driver will only be supported in Linux distributions prior to February 2009 for the legacy products listed above.

Any customers using a combination of a ATI Radeon? HD 2000 Series, ATI Radeon? HD 3000 Series, or ATI Radeon? HD 4000 Series product with any of the legacy products listed above in a single PC system must use the ATI Catalyst 9.3 or earlier driver. All future ATI Catalyst? releases made available past the ATI Catalyst? 9.3 release will not include support for the legacy products listed above or any of the features associated with those legacy products

I m running an eMachines M notebook It has an ATI Radeon Mobility U also known as ATI Radeon acknowledge card graphics my System doesn't Mobility IGP M graphics card I recently installed Vista I noticed that I didn t have the Aero color scheme available and discovered it was because I didn t have D Acceleration I checked the Device Manager to see if there was a problem with my graphics card System doesn't acknowledge my graphics card and low and behold it was only showing VGA I disabled VGA and rebooted and Device Manager then listed my graphics card but had the yellow exclamation point indicating that there was a resource conflict and that the graphics card wouldn t work until I disabled another device on the system I couldn t figure out where the conflict was I disabled just about System doesn't acknowledge my graphics card everything I could without completely crashing my system but every time I would disable a device more and more resource conflicts would pop up How can I get my system to recognize my graphics card without having conflicting resources Also is there any way to enable D Acceleration on my graphics card I don t think it supports it but I ve seen a few mentions of a patch or something nbsp

A:System doesn't acknowledge my graphics card

The yellow flag may or may not be a resource conflict. Usually it is simply a defective or incorrect driver. Download the new driver. Once you know where it is, go to the Device Manager in System and remove or disable existing driver. Then install correct driver for VISTA.
Cannot figger out why you would want VISTA on an M310. I would move back to WXP at the first opportunity, as eMachines does not easily make the drivers available.

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

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

I have a Compaq Presario 5240 w/AMD K6 400mhz, 128mb ram. It came with an integral 4mb video processor with software-based 3d accelerator. Because this caused most new games to run very slowly, I recently installed a 32mb Wicked3d Voodoo2 PCI card. The new card shows up on the "device manager" and has up-to-date drivers. The monitor is connected through the new card and functions properly. My system seems to recognize the physical presence of the new card, and the diagnostics check out, but when I try to adjust the settings of my games (like Tropico, Civ III, and Starfleet Command) I get a message that I only have 4mb video memory and only software-based 3d acceleration. What do I have to do to get these games to recognize and use the full capabilities of the new card?
 

A:software doesn't recognize video card

I would disable the onboard video in the BIOS. Tap F10 while the computer starts up and you will get into setup. I don't know exactly where you will see it.

On the other hand you may be able to go into Device Manager and disable the card.

Windows may still see it even after you have uninstalled from the BIOS. Thats because it doesn't ask the BIOS what is in the computer. It checks it out for itself.

I just bought a 9800 GT Geforce nVidia card.I have an Intel G43NB motherboard. I installed the new graphics card into the PCI-e slot, but I can't get the computer to recognize the card. If I plug my monitor into the card's I/O slot, I get the "no signal" message. I tried installing the driver off the website, but it says: "The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.". The card also doesn't appear in Device Manager. Any suggestions?
 

A:Computer doesn't recognize video card

With the monitor connected to the onboard video you need to enter the BIOS setup, like F2 or DEL, on start up and change the primary video to PCI-Express or PEG. Then save and exit the setup. Power off the computer and connect the monitor to the new video card and turn on the computer.

Also you need to make sure you have at least a 400 watt or higher power supply and that you have connected the auxiliary power cable to the back of the video card from the power supply.

A:X220 doesn't recognize Wifi-card

Update:I used a debian live installation running from a pendrive to look for detected hardware. No wifi was found - again for both cards.I'm really lost for ideas at this point. What really irritates me is that the BIOS/UEFI recognizes the 7260 card with correct VID and PID. Yet still the cards are somehow (I guess) not made available to the operating system.On another note: I've just noticed that I posted in the wrong forum section. It's about an X220, so the "ThinkPad X Series Laptops" forum would be the correct one. Could a moderator maybe move this topic?

I have a Nikon D40 camera I borrowed and I took some pictures with it on a new Kodak 4GB SD memory card. I formatted the card in the camera before I took the pictures. When I put the card in my reader on my printer my computer with XP doesn't recognize it. I even tried to format it from the computer but nothing happens except getting an hourglass and then hanging the computer for about a minute. I tried a second SD card with the same result. The reader will read a CF card with no problem so I know it's not the reader. Does anyone know what the problem is?

I just installed Windows 7 Professional x64 yesterday, and It will not recognize my 512MB Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT hardware. Therefore I am unable to install any drivers, as it does not recognize the hardware at all. Is there a fix for this or will I have to wait until HP officially recognizes windows 7, and releases a guide?

I just reinstalled windows xp on a computer I won from school. This computer used to have the latest ubuntu release on it but it was annoying so I switched to XP. Now my display is stuck in 8 bit color and at a huge resolution. When I go to the display settings from the desktop, the area where it should say my graphics card just says default monitor. I know I have some sort of integrated graphics card that came with the computer but it's not recognizing it. I've tried to find drivers and such but I don't know what exact graphics card I have so I have a bit of a dilemma. Any help would be amazing :D

I've just bought a VIA PCI IEEE 1394 Adapter (Firewire). I removed the old modem that came with the motherboard from the pci slot and inserted the new firewire adapter into its place. I made sure it was pushed firmly into the slot.

When i connected everything back up and started the computer, nothing happened. i waited a bit and still nothing. Any suggestions or explanations as to why windows won't detect my new hardware?

i have attached a dxdiag file with this post in case anyone needs to know my specs.

The new hardware could be defective but try going into the Add and Remove Programs in the Control Panel and uninstall any drivers or programs associated with the old modem and restart the PC. The DXDiag shows it thinks you still have the modem installed.

This is a hand-me-down computer from someone that was fired from this office.(now I see why he was fired) Anyhow, some where along the line after rebooting my computer the system has failed to recognize my cd-rom and cd-rw. Neither on shows up as a icon and when I try to open them the system tells me "not ready", or "no cdrom detected". How do I retrieve these files? I've looked and looked throughout the system but am unable find them. I've done a system search and neither one shows up. As a matter of fact the system has renamed my cd-rw as a new hard drive!! Any hints or help that I can get from anyone else that has had the misfortune of this happening to them would be very helpful.

A:lost cd-romdrive while installing graphics card card doesn,t work right either

Welcome to the forum Ray and Julia,

Recheck all the cables and make sure they are plugged in properly.

When you install a new video card you have to remove ALL drivers for the old card.
Uninstall the drivers for the old card in Add/Remove Programs and if you don't have the option there, check in Control Panel/Device Manager and make sure there are not 2 cards showing under Display Adapters. If the old one is still showing, Highlight it and click Remove.

Uninstall the new video card drivers, restart then re-install the new drivers.

i've never tried to hook up dual monitors before so its probably something simple. i installed a new graphics card a while back and haven't used the original for months, and now that im trying to hook up dual monitors it wont even recognize the original in the device manager, or that i have a monitor plugged into it. both monitors work perfectly fine in the newer card slot. any assistance would be appreciated. thank you for your time.

A:computer wont recognize original graphics card for dual monitors

You can't use your onboard video card and an add-in card at the same time, it's one of the other. Well you can, but only on motherboards that support hybrid CrossfireX. In most cases your onboard video is disabled when an add-in card is detected by the BIOS. To use dual monitors you will have to have a video card that supports it and connect both monitors to that video card. Then press the Windows key and the P key to extend your desktop onto the second monitor.

EDIT: Filling in your system specs would help.

When we start the computer we can see it loading up, but when it finishes and gets to the desktop the screen will go blank and we can't see anything. The computer is no forced to use the VGA and we can't watch any videos, DVDs etc. The computer will not recognize the TV if we have both the TV and a monitor. We have tried other tvs/monitors and the video card is working properly so we figure it is the tv being a 720, anyone have any solutions/suggestions for me that don't involve buying a new TV?

A:My graphics card's fan doesn't turn

Arctic Cooling makes extremely high quality, quiet aftermarket coolers for ATI GPU's. The units for the 9800 Pro's are about $30 USB. Combined with a dab of Arctic Silver 5, you're 9800 Pro should no longer have any temperature related issues... plus also be very ready to try Overclocking if you choose this route.

The main problem is- Arctic Silencers are about 40mm thick, so it will be tight in the AGP slot if you have something in the first PCI slot. I'd think this is a bad combination anyways since the first PCI slot usually has shared resources with the AGP slot and should always be left open anyways.

If you think you have enough room (try measuring from the PCB on the 9800 pro and out where the fan is now to be 45mm or so), the link is:
http://www.arctic-cooling.com/vga2.php?idx=36&data=1&disc=

It's either this or you remove the fan yourself and hit an electronics store in hopes of finding a suitable replacement if you wish to repair vs. replace the 9800 Pro.

If it's a true-blue ATI, it may still be under warranty as ATI cards of that era carry a 3-year warranty. If you still have proof of purchase documentation, ATI will most likely RMA the card in a week or two. Realize any repairs you attempt yourself will of course void that warranty.

Good luck!

Hey guys Mettalknight here

I recently bought a new Graphics Card (A Powercolor HD7750 Pic) this graphics card has 1 HDMI 1 VGA and 1 DVI slot. My old graphics card had the same setup so I thought no problem I will just take my 2 vga monitors and since I already have a converter it will work no problem right? Well I was wrong on that one. So my VGA monitor now works but the one that is converting from DVI to VGA doesn't. Is there any way to fix this? Do I need to go out and buy a new converter?

Thanks a lot for the help!
Mettalknight

A:Got a new graphics card and now my second monitor doesn't work

The problem is that the new card is DVI only on the DVI port. Also what you are connecting with is not a converter but an adapter. An actual DVI to VGA converter can cost upwards of $100 or more, where the adapters are a couple of dollars at most.

Sounds like your old card (what was it by the way?) was intended to do VGA over the DVI port in addition to the native VGA port. Unfortuneatly there is much you can do in this regard as very few if any cards made recently do more than VGA from one port, either native or via DVI adapter.

I recently got a VGA-HDMI Cable, so I could link my TV to my computer, but when I went to plug it in, my computer did not detect it. I then tried to force my computer to detect it, as many of the things I saw online recommended this, but this did not work either.
Please help me!
Thanks

Also, if its any help, my graphics card is AMD Radeon HD 6400M Series, and as this is a laptop, I cant really get a new graphics card.

hey guys,
yesterday i bought a new Nvidia XFX 7600gt AGP to replace my old 5200 AGP and i got 512mb ram to up my gaming performance. I put these into my computer, the correct slots and everything, plugged my comp back in with the new adapter from the comp to monitor and then the problem began. The computer booted up, and the monitor had power, but nothing was displayed on the screen. Instead of a green light on the monitor, there is an amber one like when it's in standby. I'm baffled.
My specs are:
Intel Pentium 4 3CPUS
3.00ghz
Previously had 512mb ram, just put another 512 in.
Previously had 5200 AGP, just put in a 7600GT AGP.

Any help would be appreciated!

Yesterday I got battlefield 2 and installed it. It was working fine until I got to the start menu. Then this thing popped up and said my graphics card was going to reset its resolution and needed to restart the computer. So I said yes then restarted the game and got back to the menu but it did the same thing so I went online and looked up the requirements for a BF2 graphics card. It said it could take ATI radeon 8600. So I'm thinking wait I have ATI 9250 and thats higher soooooooooooo. I NEED HELP PLEASE.
 

A:Battlefield 2 doesn't support a higher graphics card need help!!

Go to BF2 website and make sure you have the latest patch installed for that stupid game. By stupid I mean "nothing but technical problems for everyone that buys it". Your 9250 is supported. Make sure you have the latest drivers for the 9250 from the ATI website and the latest mobo chipset drivers. Also you'll need Direct 9.0c installed (prob on the installation disk).

Good luck

Hello, I recently performed a clean install of Windows 7 x64 Ultimate onto my computer. While doing so, I had to unplug my graphics card and use the onboard video, otherwise I'd get an error about unexpected restarts.

After installing, Windows 7 doesn't detect the graphics card (the card works, but it doesn't show up under the device manager and I can't install nVidia drivers). If I use the BIOS to switch to onboard video, then that shows up on the device manager and works fine, but I use this PC for gaming so I'd prefer to use the video card.

Any help would be greatly appreciated .

I sent this laptop in for repair awhile ago and I just noticed that my computer doesn't recognize my dedicated NVIDIA 650m graphics card. It's not avalible in device manager or anything. It's as if it doesn't exist. I've started doing some work where I really need it and I'm stuck with the integrated graphics. I've ensured every drive is up to date, I've tried downloading drivers from NVIDIA's website, and I've tried downloading HP's posted Windows 8 drivers (there's nothing for WIndows 10). Nothing has worked so far.

This was really perplexing. I am trying to install a Galaxy GT520 on my Inspiron 546. So i take of the slot i need in the back-plate and fit the card into the slot. But...the card didn't fit into the back-plate. It's like a millimeter off.... There is a little slot that the back-plate slots go into but it doesn't fit into the slot. It's almost like it needs to be a millimeter longer. Thanks to anyone who helps.

When you say you uninstalled the previous drivers, are you sure you got all of them? You must have had some display when booting into Windows in order to install the graphics driver, or perhaps I'm a little slow. Also, am I correct that you have a 380W Power supply? From what I am finding it is recommended to have a 500W minimum and preferably a 600W PSU. Although from what I find on the power draw of your card, I think the 600W is a little high. But, according to the dump files, what is happening is the drivers are crashing and not recovering within the allotted time for windows.

I might suggest you try reinstalling the graphics drivers, if you can get a display as follows.

I am going to give you some links that will help you get a good clean install and not have any drivers you don't need that will conflict with other drivers. Download a WHQL driver from Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 . Once you have them downloaded, uninstall you current driver from control panel. next clean up any left over drivers from following this tutorial Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling and select only ATI Display Drivers. After you have done that and rebooted, install the new driver, only select custom install and install only what you have to. Very few people need most of what they include. You do not need the audio/HDMI drivers as you already have that in your Motherboard drivers. Unless there is some reason you need them, the only thing you really need is the Display Driver.

Hey, I just had a question for my fellow geeks and nerds of the internet:

I'm building a new PC, and my Motherboard is an Abit- KN8 SLI, and it does not have integrated video.

Due to the issue on hand, I'm unable to install my copy of Windows XP onto my machine.

Now the only video card I have is an Asus Extreme AX850, running through a PCI-Express port, and my Motherboard doesn't recognize that. I can't even bring up BIOS. I'm a poor 15 year old, so I can't afford another graphics card. Is there no hope? Or is there something that I can do to get this card working.

Or, should I be looking at the Diamond AMD Radeon HD 7970 PCIE 3G GDDR5 Video Graphics Card 7970PE53G at Amazon.com: Diamond AMD Radeon HD 7970 PCIE 3G GDDR5 Video Graphics Card 7970PE53G: Electronics ?

Or, maybe look at the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC with Boost 3GB DDR5 DL-DVI-I/SL-DVI-D/HDMI/DP PCI-Express Graphics Card 11197-03-40G at http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-DL-DV...970+OC+Edition ?

These are all around the price range I'd like to stay in.

Also another question... my computer only has one lead that plugs in to the end of the graphics card. Do any of these mentioned about require two leads? If so, how do I accommodate that?

Can I split the one lead I have into two, or would I have to install another lead from whereever it connects to, like power supply?

One is 1GB and the other is 512MB, does the memory matter? I know GTA IV needs 768MB of RAM on the card, I don't know what will happen when i try the game...I don't know about what future games will require so 1GB is choice for now. I didn't find a Geforce card because I don't understand the power supply rating of 18amps.

I need your help please!! thanks

A:Best Graphics Card For My System??

Maybe that is just it. That card is just sucking more power than the whole unit can handle. I would suggest getting a bigger PWS in consideration of budget.

You have to take into consideration.

When you buy a system off the market from retail, they put in a PWS just big enough to handle what the default configuration is.

sorry for the grammar.. i just suck.

Hi.... I need to buy a new video card and would like to find a range cards that are compatible with win7 and will play the newer games on the market.
Thanks in advance for any assistance........

For the system in your specs? First I would buy a proper PSU, then put in 6GB of triple channel RAM, if not 12GB, then put in a 5870. For that card, a Corsair HX 750 is enough.

A:Best graphics card for this system?

Look for a model number printed on your motherboard, usually printed around the CPU area.

The info you provided only tells us you are using a Pentium D. Most likely an 820 (could also be either 915 or 920) but not positive. In any case this would be an LGA775 platform, which usually has a PCIe x16 slot. But without knowing the model number of the motherboard so we can check, I'm not going to swear on PCIe x16 support. I am leaning toward PCIe x16 support, since you stated having a graphics card.

I'm looking at the specs on this:
Lenovo IdeaCentre K450e Desktop (57327391) Black
and I can't figure out what that graphics card actually is. As named, it doesn't appear to exist.
Any ideas?
I won't be building one, for various reasons, so has anyone found a better off-the-shelf, sub-1k system?
I'd be gaming and watching videos. I'd do both at the same time, ideally, so dual monitor support would be great.
Thanks!

I think my computer has a 300W power supply.
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 2.6Ghz
RAM: Soon to be 8GB

EDIT:
On this page about my PC model info it says maximum PSU 300W, does that mean I am screwed and cant get this ? as I wont be able to upgrade power supply if its needed or is that something else ?

A:Upgrading Graphics Card With This System?

Don't know what power supply comes with the unit, but the card calls for:
Minimum 450W or greater system power supply (with a minimum 12V current rating of 24A)Click to expand...

So you may need to upgrade the PSU if it doesn't meet that.

I am thinking of upgrading my graphics card and would like
some advice.My system is a PII 400 MHz with an Intel
i740 card, someone said the latest cards won't be a good
choice since they require a better system and that I should
look for TNT2 or Geforce 2mx at the most.The i740 card was
not able to run 3D intensive games but after updating to
DirectX 8.0 it was able to run most of them although at
lower resolutions.Now it seems the newer games need
multitexturing, which my card does not support.So what
do you think?

Thanks

gforce2 mx 400 would be a low cost choice, the tnt2 is too old in my opinion.

Hey guys, I've got a somewhat older Dell Dimension 4800, with Intel Extreme Graphics 2 (integrated card) and I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade the graphics card or if I'm stuck with what I've got because it's an integrated card?
