I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have lost my cd rom windows will not acknowledge that it is there although on start up is is shown as being found. thanks for the help with the video card.

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.

We've recently had a new graphics card installed, GeForce 220, and are having problems viewing on the TV. 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? Oh we are running Vista 32bit. Thanks!

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!

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.

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
Previously had 512mb ram, just put another 512 in.
Previously had 5200 AGP, just put in a 7600GT AGP.

Any help would be appreciated!

I m trying to figure out if my problem is my graphics card EVGA GTX GB or my motherboard Biostar TZ A LGA This computer is a brand new build Please click my system specs for more details I have two PCI-E slots There is one x slot and one x slot of the time my machine freezes a few seconds after powering card in work, in Graphics x4 ?? fine works x16 PCI-E doesn't the slot on at the Graphics card in PCI-E x16 doesn't work, works fine in the x4 slot ?? BIOS logo screen or a few seconds after that while inserted in the x slot Sometimes it works however yet it is so infrequently that I ve given up on the x slot for now It will even freeze after I ve entered my BIOS settings page even just while browsing around in it The same graphics card in my PCI-E x slot works fine if you ignore the fact that it s running at it s potential speed At least I can boot the machine up I ve spoken with a few different professionals about this and the conclusion is that my problem lies either a with my PCI-E x slot or b with my GTX Apparently the graphics card COULD work just fine in the x slot and still be damaged Now I know that you re going to tell me to try a different card in my computer or try the card in a different computer However that isn t practical for me at the moment I was wondering what you guys think or if anyone has experience with this first-hand What are you leaning towards Mobo or Gfx card nbsp

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.

Hi TechSpot folk, and thanks for in advance for anyone who can help me.

I've bought myself a new video card yesterday; HIS Radeon X1650 Pro 512mb IceQ, AGP. I went ahead to install it, and I get no picture after booting up.

I am receiving a signal to the monitor (I am not getting a "check signal" message) but no image comes to the PC. I went to put my old card in which is a Gigabyte 128mb 9600 Pro, and it now it doesn't work either!!!

Both cards are receiving power as theirs fans are chugging along.

I had also purchased a 1gig stick of RAM to complement my new video card, so I set my PC up the way it was before the attempted installation of the new card. Still nothing happening.

Current components of PC are:

P4 2.8ghz (D865PERL)
Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro 128mb
512mb RAM
DVD and Lite-On burner

A:New video card install no good, now older card doesn't work either

I don't know about the 9600 Pro but the X1650 Pro should have a power connector on it. Possibly a floppy drive type connector. Was that plugged in?

Just to let you guys know, I'm new so forgive any mistakes.

The title says it all.

I get a replacement GPU (GT240) because my first GPU stopped working. The first time I install the card, nothing comes up on the monitor so I plug my D-Sub cable back into my integrated graphics. I download the new drivers. I restart my computer and what do you know my gpu works. All this was done at night by the way. The next day when I wake up, I turn on my computer. Nothing appears on my screen. I still have D-Sub plugged into my gpu. On the monitor it says "no signal".

I should enough power. I have a 450w Corsair PSU.
My first GPU (actually second) was a GIGABYTE GT 240 1GB DDR3
The replacement is an ASUS (they didn't have another GIGABYTE card) GT 240 1GB DDR3

Uninstall all existing drivers and display devices in device manager and add or remove programs. Download driver sweeper and run in windows normal and safe mode. Reinsert new graphics card and go to nvidia's website to download newest drivers.

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:

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 .

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

I recently developed a problem with my PC (p4 2.8 win XP 2gb ram) where
it doesn't want to seem to work with my 6800LE anymore.

Basically what happens is that I boot it up, get as far as the logon screen
and then my screen goes black and nothing works. Not even trying to use
the keyboard to login without seeing it happen.

Things I've tried:
Used a different graphics card.
Tried it with a 7300GT and got the same problem

Tried it with a 5200FX and PC works fine!

The difference between the 5200 and both the 7300 and 6800 is that the latter
both required a power supply.

So I've tried disconnecting everything to the powersupply except the
MB, HD and the gfx card and I get the same problem.

Has anyone got any ideas on what else I can try?

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.

One day, the sound suddenly cut out. Since then, it hasn't worked. I had the same dilemma before, but then miraculously, the sound came back. The sound stayed for quite a while, a few months, then it went out again about 2 days ago. Since then, it hasn't worked.

I plugged my speakers into my phone and it worked. So the problem cannot be the speakers. I looked in my Device Manager and I can't find the driver. I tried installing the sound driver, but it tells me this:

"Setup is unable to detect a supported product on your system. Please ensure that your product is properly installed before running this Setup program."

So, my computer isn't detecting the sound card. My sound card is Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit

Btw, I'm running Windows XP

Anyone have any ideas or clues?

That is a pretty old card and nothing lasts forever. Pull the card and give is a close look; see if you find any leaking caps, burned components, etc. If it looks OK, install it in another pci slot and pw ON. See if windows finds the card.

A:USB card device doesn't work

Does the problem just occur on very large files?

If you open the Device Manager (run devmgmt.msc) and look under the USB tree -- is there an entry there for an "Enhanced" USB controller? If so, is it "working properly"?

You might try doing what is known as a USB "cleanup":


First set a System Restore point and test it: start > run: msconfig > Launch System Restore.

The standard approach to these problems is to remove all the USB devices in the Device Manager and let Windows reinstall them. But there is a special technique to it.

I am uploading a registry patch you will need to download, unzip and run. Confirm the merge to the registry.

It is the patch described in JohnWill's note here:

Once you have installed the patch, follow the rest of his instructions.

Note: in some cases Windows does not have the proper install path for the information files required. If the New Hardware Wizard prompts you for an install location, point it to:


This is a hidden directory, so you will need to have "show Hidden Files" enabled in Folder Options > View to see it.

I have a year old XFX GeForce GT PCIE X that Im trying to install in a new computer with vista and on board ATI radeon HD The first couple times i tried it after install i got no graphics at all until i removed the card After going into the BIOS and changing the quot displayPort Config quot from card not help graphics get work- to Can Auto to Enabled the on board graphics would work with the card installed but not the card graphics When i try to load the supplied drivers I get this message quot The Can not get graphics card to work- help VGA detected seems not XFX's product please go to nvidia com to get the driver for the other NVIDIA VGA quot I dont understand that but i then downloaded updated drivers from Nvidia but when i try to install them i get an assortment of error messages including quot The Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware quot quot you are running a bit version of nvidia uninstaller on a bit system quot quot setup detected the operating system in use is not windows vista bit quot these errors seem to contradict themselves Is it possible this card is not compatible with the computer The card may be bad as my old PC lost graphics but the geek squad a bunch of morons by the way swapped cards and still no graphics and said my MoBo was bad so i just got new PC but woudl like to use this card as I assume its better than the included built in graphics Going into the MoBo users guide it doesnt cover switching from on-board graphics to PCI slot other than describing how to configure the BIOS settings for the graphics card to support ATI Hybrid CrossFireX I tried that but it didnt seem to do anything either im guessing the ATI contol center software doesnt show the enable CrossFire option without a CrossFire compatible card installed or i didnt install the drivers correctly for that function Im loving the power of the new PC but its weak point is definatley the on board graphics

A:Can not get graphics card to work- help

Is there anyway for you to disable the onboard video in bio's?? Sounds like it is enabled and not letting your card operate. Seems like that's the cause for your installer for your driver's not to work right. Just a guess, since all the boards I own do not have onboard video. But did you do bench marks on that onboard video compared to your 8600 and see where they rate at??

Hi all,

My next door neighbour is wanting to upgrade his graphics card so that he can play flight simulators in better quality. He has currently got "Advent Quad core intel core quad processor q6600" with an already upgraded grahics card but i can not remember the make of the one that is currently fitted.

He is wanting to buy a Nvidia 9800gtx Graphics card and fit it in to the machine. We know that there is a size issue and we can work around this but i dont know how to find out if the motherboard can give the graphics card enough power to run propperly.

Is there any way i can find out if this would work?

Thank you for reading.


A:Will this graphics card work?

Motherboard will probably be ok. Worry about the Power Supply.

Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) 105C
Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) 140W

The main thing that throws me off is the different memory types: DDR SDRAM for the processor and GDDR2 on the card. Does it matter? Do they have to match?

Thanks for any help you can give

A:Will this Graphics card work?

I'm assuming you mean the DDR SDRAM for the memory. It doesn't matter if memory is DDR and the Graphics card is GDDR2. No compatibility issues there.

I'm quite new to the whole PC building thing, so I had a question about graphics cards. For instance, how come a Radeon HD 5750 performs better than a Nvidia GT 220? They are both 1GB cards, so shouldn't they perform the same?

Could somebody explain to me how a graphics card works, and what makes a 5750 better than a GT 220? (Just picked those 2 cards because I know they are quite different in performance)

A:How exactly does a graphics card work?

the 1 gb memory has nothing to do with speed - it merely refers to the amount of memory (and hence texture detail for games) on board.

without getting too technical, graphics cards have a dedicated graphics processing unit - a gpu.

different cards have different gpu's, running at different speeds. the graphics memory (vram) also runs at various speeds.

an expensive card will have a fast gpu, and lots of fast vram, and will give a much smoother higher framerate in games, because it can 'crunch numbers' faster.

it's a bit like asking why does a 3 GHz intel processor perform better than a 300 MHz amd...or why does a ferrari go faster than a ford if they both have four seats.

A:New Graphics card, can't get it to work

Hello Vorbroker, Welcome to the Forum.

Why do think you need that BIOS update to install the video card?
Flashing the BIOS is serious business and an error can brick your computer. You should do this only if it is necessary and only if you clearly understand what you are doing.

I visited the Lenovo website and looked up the Ideapad Y710 and saw that there is only one BIOS available (v1.0). So I am concerned about where you got this new BIOS from. They are not mix and match. You must only use the BIOS for your model laptop!

Important: You need to check the specs on your laptop. Newer laptops have "Dual Graphics" capability. In addition to the video card there is also a integrated graphics processor, either on the motherboard, or built into the processor. You need to know if this is the case with your laptop, because if it is so you will need to install either the dual graphics drivers package from Lenovo, or do a more complicated dual install. Let us know what you've got.

If there is only the graphics card in that laptop you should be able to install just the AMD/ATI drivers.

To install a new video card it is very important to follow proper procedure, as follows: Go to the ATI website and download the most current driver for your new card and save it to an easy to find location.
Go into Start > Control Panel > Remove a Program and uninstall all programs for the video card. For ATI, select “ATI Catalyst Install Manager” and click on “Change”, then “Uninstall All Components”. Do not restart the computer at this time.
Run DriverSweeper to uninstall all video remnants Guru3D - Driver Sweeper .
Shut down computer and remove the battery.
Remove the old ATI card, install the new ATI card. Make sure all auxiliary power connectors are plugged in. Some cards need 2. Read the manual.
Reinstall the battery, plug in the power supply/charger, and boot the computer.
When it reaches the desktop Windows will find new hardware and will install it's own WDDM1.1 driver. Let it. You will be asked to restart. Do it.
Once back on the desktop you can now install the ATI driver package for your card.
Hope that helps.

A:Which graphics card will work on my PC

For your CPU, the best video card is 8800 GT or 9800 GT. For only about 60 dollars. PCIe of course. You have a PCIe slot right,, where your current card is.

Anyhow this is the best bang for the buck, and you will increase your performance by a lot.

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.

I have a GeForce 8500GT Graphics card that no longer works if I install ANY drivers available for it. Before you ask I have tried the oldest drivers possible, they do not work either! It all started from a BSOD (unfortunately I lost the minidump files in a system restore) and the following days it stopped working, the computer would freeze on the Windows starting logo of Win7. Making it seem like a OS problem. But a week later and numerous tests later it appears the card works fine without drivers, but as soon as I install any it stops working. I was wandering if there is another way of using this card?

Hi Guys,
I am looking for a graphics card for my 3 yr old computer. I'd like to get something that will work in Conjunction w/ my GPU and not simply cancel it out. I know they have them. Just don't know if my board will do this. Another thing I need to make sure it is compatible w/ my PCI. And finally when the card says ddr 3 or 5 is it compatible since my board only takes ddr 2 mem sticks? Here is the link for my board:

Please don't tell me to get a new board or system since mine is old. I know that and getting a new system right now isn't an option.


A:compatible graphics card that will work w/ my gpu?

The board doesn't have Hybrid Crossfire, which would be needed for what you're willing to do. Not that you actually can run them in conjunction with Hybrid Crossfire either, you've got a bit of a wrong vision of it... When onboard works "alongst" with a discrete card, it just means the discrete card goes to a very low power sleep when no 3D apps are running and the onboard handles desktop usage.
(G)DDR3/5/whatever is not a compatibility issue, neither are PCI versions - PCI-E 16x cards, let them be 2.0, 2.1 or whatever will work on your board.
Power supply quality and true output capacity is. What's your current power supply model? Look at its side for some hints if you don't know straight off the top of your head. "*** Watts" is not enough, a real model is needed to determine any useful facts about the unit.

450W PSU
It can handle an AMD 6670, so it has at least PCI Express, with a x16 lane graphics slot (don't know what that means)
I will add a picture of the inside soon

And here is the GTX 660 website:

If you could tell me if my computer meets the requirements then that would be great.

A:Graphics Card on my Motherboard - will it work?

It won't interfere with the RAM slots.

The components on a PCI-E card mount on the side that's away from the CPU. The 7950 is a dual slot card, so you'd cover the PCI-E X1 slot that's nearest the X16 slot.

Two questions:

What kind of power supply do you have? You'd need at least 500W, with two 6 pin PCI-E auxiliary power connectors.

Can your case handle a card that is 275 mm (10.8") long? The card is longer than the width of your micro-ATX motherboard.

I have recently seen a great graphics card that I want to buy for my computer. The only thing is I don't know whether my computer will bottleneck if I add the graphics card and PSU.

My current PC:
It is overclocked to 3.6Ghz.
The graphics card I want to get:
And the PSU:

Any information will be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,


A:Unsure if my new graphics card will work with my PC

This is a better choice of a PSU:

I have just brought a XFX GeForce 7600 GT 256mb Graphics Card and was wondering if it will run on windows XP and also on Vista. As in the specs on some sites it only mentions Vista and i run XP. And also is this a good card . I didn't buy it from a shop otherwise i would have asked them about it. And is it easy to install ? Thanks Rob
