PCIe graphics works ONLY when integrated graphics enabled

Q: PCIe graphics works ONLY when integrated graphics enabled

I recently installed a PCIe graphics card nVidia GTX Ti on my ASUS P Z -V MB running Windows and an Intel ONLY enabled when integrated graphics PCIe graphics works i processor The goal was to get displayport so I PCIe graphics works ONLY when integrated graphics enabled could use a higher resolution monitor In the BIOS I changed the quot system agent quot graphics setting to make the PCIe graphics card the primary video When I do that the machine seems to boot and the MB splash screen offering the option to enter BIOS comes up on a monitor attached to the PCIe videocard but Windows never fires up the PCIe videocard If I set the MB to enable integrated graphics the machine boots into Windows fine and Windows uses the videocard Monitors attached to the videocard get the Windows display and if no monitors are attached to the Intel integrated graphics the Intel graphics software does not run The problem is that with the Intel integrated video set to be the primary video I don't get the splash screen on monitors attached to the PCIe card nor I PCIe graphics works ONLY when integrated graphics enabled suspect would I see Windows recovery screens should something go wrong though I don't PCIe graphics works ONLY when integrated graphics enabled know If I attach a monitor to the Intel integrated video then Intel's graphic engine runs in Windows and I'd rather it did not As per usual I don't know if this is a Windows problem or a MB problem or a graphics card problem Since the MB bios splash screen goes to the right monitor for the MB setting I am presuming the problem is in Windows But I cannot imagine what that would be I did the usual updates on general principles so latest MB bios latest Intel and nVidia drivers all Windows updates Any help thinking this thru would be appreciated

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.)

A: PCIe graphics works ONLY when integrated graphics enabled

Not sure how your motherboard works but may need the Intel graphics enabled for the dedicated card to work. Do you have the latest Intel graphics drivers installed? Have you tried installing the Nvidia drivers when on the Intel graphics?

Could also try reverting to the basic graphics drivers in Device Manager when on the Intel, then switch to the dedicated in BIOS and see if it will boot with the basic driver installed.

A:No way to disable integrated graphics on Vostro 270S when using PCIe addon card

Just a bit more information.  The add-on card is a NVidia NVS280 or NVS285 LP with pigtails to dual VGA.  With monitors hooked up to that card it has worked perfectly fine so far.  I haven't tried one monitor on the integrated card and the other on the card to verify both are still working, but the Intel integrated graphics still shows up in device manager and is using system memory.

I just plugged my monitor into the new card (HD4770) and it works, did not disable or uninstall the integrated graphics. the integrated is a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE chipset. The performance index went higher on paper but other than having better resolution I don't see a huge improvment. I still have video lag trying to watch streaming hd movies and my new camera (Panasonic Lumix ZS7) wont play video in HD over my computer. Must I disable and even uninstall the old integrated graphics too or am I missing something else?

A:I just installed a new graphics card, must I disable the old integrated graphics?

Have a look in your bios to see if it has an option to boot from pci-e or intergrated.

PCIe 3.0 is still irrelevant at this point, there is simply no current card that can effectively make use of the full bandwidth of 2.0 let alone 3.0. It is overrated and offers no real life performance advantage over 2.0. Running any PCIe 3.0 card in a PCIe 2.0 slot will not affect performance, the benefits of PCIe3.0 are only visible while running intensive applications with a multi-GPU setup.

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

Does anyone have an answer to this?

No, not really. I recommend integrated gpu's for my users that are just using the web and email. The A6 has a integrated HD 8470D gpu. I think that is very similar to the Intel HD4000 series. It should give you HD graphic capabilities at 1920x1200, possoble as high as 2560x1600 depending on the monitor.
You do not get the high frame rate of a new gen gpu in a 16x pcie slot.

A:integrated graphics

Intel graphics chips don't meet the requirements of most of today's PC games.
Whilst it's (usually) possible to allocate more system RAM to the graphics chip in the BIOS Setup, there is a limit to how much you can allocate, and it's certainly less than the 1GB (recommended) that SkyRim requires.

Not only that, the more RAM you assign to the graphics chip, the less there is left over for Windows and applications to use. SkyRim requires 2GB RAM (minimum), 4GB (recommended). You have a total of 3GB RAM at present. Windows Vista needs most of that for itself just to run at an acceptable pace.
There just isn't enough RAM for both Vista and SkyRim together, especially as Vista is particularly heavy on RAM usage compared to other Windows versions.

So the Intel graphics chip is the primary weak spot, with installed RAM being the second weak spot.

You can add more RAM of course, but you're stuck with the Intel chip.

I doubt that it could run that game all on low at playable frame rates. It is passable for older games and general purpose use, but if you want your games to be playable you're going to have to add in video card.

A:Help with integrated graphics

Well, if you motherboard has an agp slot(as many integrated mobos lack graphics upgrade slots), you buy an agp card that's compatible(if your board has 8x agp get an 8x card), carefully install it(after reading it's directions of course), and then boot up. It should display using a generic windows driver, but look really low quality. If it doesn't display from the new card, you might have to enter the bios and setup the video options. Maybe select that your using an agp card instead of integrated or something like that, bioses vary. Then, you install the newest drivers for the card, like if it's nvidia based, dl the latest driver from nvida and install it.

Hey !

I have integrated graphics (Intel HD graphics) on my lappy . It says it can use upto a total memory of 1696mb approximately . I have core i3 370M processor and a memory of 4gb .

If my lappy can use memory upto 1696 mb , I can play all most all high end graphics games smoothly . But it is not happening . NFS HP3 is not running smoothly !
And games like GTA 4 aren't running .
What should I do in order to increase my gaming performance ?
Will it works upgrading my ram to 8 gb ?

A:Integrated graphics help !

Just because the integrated graphics has up to 1696 MB of shared RAM available, it doesn't overcome the fact that they are integrated graphics, which by virtue are not good performers at all when it comes to gaming. Unfortunately in your case, if it only has the Intel HD Graphics, there's not really going to be anything you can do to improve graphics performance with software. Your best bet would be to get an external graphics card for your laptop such as MSI’s external graphics card promises vastly improved graphics for laptops wanting a little more…. Don't know if they're selling it yet but if they are, then this would definitely help you with games.

Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:M92p SFF - Graphics upgrade; PCIe 2.0 vs 3.0

The GTX 750 Ti could work with a SFF M92p.   Upgrade to the latest BIOS beforehand, CD ISO method is most reliable.   Check that there aren't any taller heatsinks on the motherboard that could interfere with the graphics card (refer to photos of the card.)   
 
Since your system is older, to ensure the necessary airflow, clean the front air intake and fan with vacuum and canned compressed air, jam the fan with a cable tie or similar so it can't spin and over-speed.  Same for CPU fan and heat sink, and vac the intake and rear exhaust of the power supply.  
 

I can confirm that this MSI brand low-profile  GTX 750 Ti 2GB  card works perfectly in my M93p SFF machine without upgrading the PSU:   MSI N750-Ti-2GD5TLP
 
Measuring the power draw running Prime95 (CPU benchmark) , FurMark (GPU benchmark) , charging mobile phone via USB and copying large files at the same time , it stays below 190W.   Have been running this for several hours. I have also been playing Fallout 4 (FullHD, ultra textures, 60 FPS) for 100 hours without any problems.   As the case is quite compact, I was worried about the temperature but it stays below 80C for the GPU at full power over extended periods of time (about 25C ambient temp in the room). 
 
Installation is ok. Just mount the low profile bracket and move the PCIe 1x WiFi card (if you have one) into another slot.  Preferably leave an empty slot next to the graphics card.

If you wanna stick with Nvidia (the way its meant to be played ) My card, the 9400 GT is just what you are looking for, cheap ( i guess thats what you want) awesome, and playing those high-end games. 1gb memory of its own, and a 550 mhz Gpu.
If however, you want to cross over to ATI, they got some awesome cards too, like the 4670 which is also cheap and good (not as good, but good)

Hope this helps!

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

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

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

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

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

A:Integrated Graphics Question

Short answer - no.

Laptops generally are non expandable regarding video memory.
Some exceptions are in the top end of the market, but in the general range what you get when its manufactured is what you are stuck with.

Some allow more or less to be assigned from the main memory within limits. Check the BIOS to see if 32 MB is tha maximum in your case.

Bought my daughter a new HP dv9000 laptop for school.Has vista premium.Has 6150 go graphics.Only had i gig of memory so i popped in 2 gigs of memory.Right on a sticker on the computer it states up to 287 megs of shared graphics.Went into bios and the only setting i seen was vr ram-frame buffer size.I upped it from 64 to 128 which was max setting.When i go to control panel and system it shows memory at 1918 megs.I'm a little confused! can someone enlighten me on this? did i change the wrong setting to up shared video graphics memory? it was the only thing i saw.

i have a acer aspire x3400g with a integrated nivdia 9200 graphics.

i have a asus gt430 installed.

i play diable 3

would it be profitable to have integrated graphics turned on in the bios.

i set my bios to have it on with uma buffer size 512 (which is the 9200s ram).

would this offload textures and make fps better?

btw in device manager it is showing both gpu's.NVM IT INSTALLED THE 9200 ONCE I TURNED ONBOARD GRAPHICS ON IN THE BIOS. BUT ONCE I RESET MY COMPUTER ITS GONE. BUT ONBOARD IS STILL ON.
thanks

A:is it better to have integrated graphics on with gaming?

Hello sogone209,

Short answer, nope.

Long answer:-

Your integrated graphics card would actually reduce your performance by using up system RAM from your system that it'd have to permanently reserve for its own functionality.

What you've mentioned as the UMA buffer size is actually referring to the amount of system RAM you are allowing the integrated card to reserve from it. For example you have 4 GBs of RAM. You set the UMA buffer to 512 MB. You are telling the integrated card to take that amount of RAM from your system for its own functions. So in effect you only have 3.5 GB of RAM left for your system and applications.

Offloading textures and the like refers to SLI functionality which requires 2 dedicated cards like your Asus GT 430 to be installed in tandem.

In conclusion, switch off that integrated card, and use your dedicated card for optimal performance. Unless power conservation is important to you. But I believe that it doesn't really matter since you're gaming on a desktop.

I don't quite understand how to take advantage of Intel? HD Graphics 3000 built into the i7 2600k processor. I know mine is inactive. I wonder if it is because my motherboard is H67 or because I have a graphics card installed? I also wish to know the purpose of the Intel? HD Graphics 3000. Is it to replace the need of a graphics card or to work in conjunction with a graphics card or is it for better performance if there is no graphics card. I have searched the web and haven't found a definitive answer.

Replies will be appreciated. Thank you

A:i7 2600k and its integrated graphics?

My guess it that you have to enable the HD 3000 graphics in the H67 BIOS.
You probably should remove the dedicated graphics card you installed, first.
Hook up your monitor to the available H67 ports.

Hey there,

I just got a new computer with a Gigabyte M68MT-S2P motherboard.
With everything installed, including graphics card (GTS 450), the monitor said no input signal (the monitor works on other PCs). Trying with just the integrated graphics, still no signal. Ive taken out the ram, switched it around, used one stick at a time, unplugged all peripherals, and anything out of the blue I could think to solve this issue.

Any ideas, or if the motherboard just seems to be a dud, let me know.

I've bought a new pc and it comes with an integrated Geforce4 MX video card. Is it possible to remove this and buy a stand-alone graphics card. My pc comes with 512MB DDR RAM, but the video card uses 128MB of this memory, leaving me only with 384MB of RAM. If you can remove the card would the shared 128mb memory go bak to the 384mb and make it bak up to 512MB again.

Im grateful for any help

Yep,

If you've got an AGP Port.. you could simply buy a better AGP card and stick it in, you would have to disable your on-board VGA though... but that will still free up your lost RAM.

A:Integrated Graphics Memory

Using software to "increase" your memory isn't really ever a good idea. The way I look at it is the companys designing such software are just trying to rip off those of us that dont know any better just like companys that sell "pop-up blockers" or send you messages using Messenger Service asking you to buy software to stop the same messages they themselves are sending.

I remember using a program called SoftRam back in the day. It never made a difference in my performance or what I was able to run.

Your best bet is probably to optimize your Windows installation. If that doesn't make any difference you might want to try to tweak your virtual memory or SWAP.

Do a google search for the keywords "optimize" and "windows".

you can turn off the onboard video in your bios, so when you put in a new psi card it's all you'll have. and it's possible to get a pci graphics card that's better than your onboard graphics, but don't expect to be playing farcry or bf2 on there.

Hey all! My Asus motherboard has an ATI Radeon HD 3000 built in that can access a gig of the system DDR3 memory and all. It also can be over clocked to a gigahertz and can stay relatively cool. The thing is is when it comes to gaming, like Grand Theft Automobile 4. (Yes, I can run GTA 4 on rather goods settings too) After a few minutes of game play, the screen kind of flickers to black a bit. Or sometimes out of nowhere, the screens goes real dark and I have to wait a few seconds for it normalize out.

That only really seems to happen when the graphics chipset gets over clocked closer to a gigahertz. At 925ghz, it's all great. I have my drivers all updated too.

So is there a specific reason or reason in general why this is happening?

Yes, your graphics card will work just fine in that system. No compatibility issues as far as I can tell.

The only potential problem I see is that the power supply is only 230W. There is a chance that this will not be enough love juice to power your card.

All of my connections and wires are connected properly, my power supply is the right voltage and has enough power to support my graphics card. My hard drives are spinning but I cant access my BIOS. I have tried everything that is common. I know my graphics card is not defective and im thinking that it might be my motherboard. Any suggestions?
 

A:My integrated graphics won't work

You were using integrated graphics before the discrete card? It's strange that your onboard isn't working if it was before hand. Usually it's just a overlooked cable or something plugged in the wrong place. Did you make any changes to BIOS? Some boards require you to change the primary display adapter to PCIE or onboard. Maybe a BIOS reset will help the situation. I doubt there is any issues with the MOBO itself. I suggest stripping the build down to nothing but the bear essential components for operation. This way you can isolate the issue a lot easier.

Is there a motherbaord that offers integrated graphics within the socket am3/+ region?

A:AM3/+ Motherboard with Integrated Graphics

Yes there is quite a range, one that immediately springs to mind and at good value is the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AMD760G it offers AMD 3000 Radeon graphics but as im a NVIDIA user im not sure what it offers in terms of performance but any integrated graphics are going to be low-end compared to dedicated cards.

Im a bit of a Gigabyte Fanboy so i'd suggest any one of the AM3+ boards they offer with integrated graphics.

Another suggestion i could offer would be to go for one of AMD's new APU's which is a CPU/GPU in 1 chip theyre reasonably affordable and the motherboards that run them (FM1 or FM2 Sockets) are equally affordable.

But ultimately i would suggest along with many others to go for a dedicated graphics card as long as the board you have or are getting along with your power supply are equipped to run it, even if its a low end GT630.

Here is a link of a video card heirachy chart that helps determine performance of integrated video with dedicated that should help you make a decision.

It might, but I'm not sure.
Here it seems it can run it, but not very well.

The sis mirage2 is not very fast at all though.
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/imageview.php?image=910
It's the bottom one, it's less than half as fast as the slowest agp card listed, the 64bit fx5200, which is pretty bad itself.

If the pc you're considering is one of these(one's sempron based, the other athlon 64, they should be in the $500-600usd range),

http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/s...Z_series&subcat1=rts&catLevel=3#defaultAnchor

then it's a good deal, since it's upgradeable to agp graphics. You could get a cheap graphics card, like this,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814164008
and install in it and it would run the game well, but with the standard graphics(sis mirage2), it will barely play any games well.

A dell that's upgradeable will cost at least $800usd.

Does anyone have experience of Movie Maker, Vista and integrated graphics
cards?

I am thinking of buying a laptop with 2mb of memory and an Intel Integrated
graphic media accelerator X3100. Or should I go for a nVidia GeForce Go 8400M
GS with 128mb dedicated memory?

My main use is downloading video from a video camera, editing in Movie Maker
and rendering with Nero. Any thoughts are welcome.
 

A:Integrated Graphics Cards

anytime it's better to get 8400 rather than integrated card.
remember, laptop graphic card are not meant to be changed.
its manufactured to live with the graphic card made...

although the performance might not be significant in the movie editing,
believe me, there is difference between integrated graphic card and external one, especially X3100 vs 8400...

btw the laptop you mentioned have 2GB memory, not 2MB...,
and if the specification of the laptop is the same,
definitely go for 8400 instead...
Good luck choosing...

Are you sure that your motherboard has no PCI-E X16 slot? The last person that I encountered here thought that his board had no PCI-E X16 slot, only X1, but he was mistaken.

I asked yesterday about running my graphics card from the second PCIe slot for purely visual reasons after deciding that the speed decrease would be negligible if any. Firstly if you disagree with this, please let me know :P. I tried to start the computer with the video card in the second PCIe slot (PCIe 3.0, 8x), but I got no video signal to my screen with both the motherboard output and the videocard output.

Is it actually possible to run a single graphics card out of a PCIe slot which isnt the primary one?

Thanks.

A:Running Single Graphics Card from Second PCIe

Well it should be possible...

How do you figure running CrossfireX solutions would be like if one PCI-E slot didn't accept a card in it's slot?

Have you tried reseating the card properly and also remembered to replug in the dual 6-pin PCI Express power connectors? I know it sounds rather trivial, but loose connections to the slot can cause those issues some times...

As for your motherboards output, try checking your BIOS whether your integrated card has been enabled or not.. you may have disabled it after installing your dedicated graphics card initially...

I have a dell laptop with a dock that allows you to add pci cards. I have an ati card in there now running 2 monitors. The dock also has a vga out that i am assuming is being driven by the integrated onboard graphics from the laptop. I want 3 monitors. Is it possible to do this by driving 2 off of the pci card and 1 off of the integrated graphics? I read somewhere that you may need to look through the bios to make sure that your computer doesn't automatically disable the onboard graphics once a card is plugged in. Is this true?
 

A:3 monitors with pci card and integrated graphics?

Yes. This totally depends on your onboard graphics. Some will allow you to use both the integrated video out as well as an add-on card, while other cards will only permit you to use one or the other.

If you post the exact model number of your laptop that will help! At the very least find out what the integrated card is.

A:Intall new graphics from integrated to PCI express

Without the model of HP Desktop, it's tough to figure out. Though it being HP, you probably won't be able to go in and disable it in the BIOS although you shouldn't need to as when you install the new video card, the integrated one should disable itself and the discrete video card will take over; this is what occurs in most cases.

A:integrated graphics, is there a way to increase performnce

Faster RAM and overclocking are only options baring adding a real video card. Having 16GB of RAM does not mean it's all used by GPU, probably no more than 1GB is used for it now. GPU in that processor would not benefit of more than that anyway.

Your integrated graphics should allow you to use a TV tuner quite happily, but you might want to make sure your drivers are up-to-date.

Nope, on most, if not all laptops, the graphics are built in to the mainboard. There is no way to have a dedicated card on a laptop.

Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
Open each + down into the component itself and then click on it - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that device. See pic for example. Though a Google for that NVidia you quoted gives me the motherboard but try it anyway.


Disregard the top bit and look at Other components and my pic just click on the square for example motherboard and it will give you in depth details model serial no etc etc

PS Have just found this it is probably the driver you need NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 307.83 Driver WHQL now try it but you may have to uninstall the other but try it first.
