Q: AMD mobile graphics switching "Enduro" technology has problems...

Recently this has come to light during my own research into mobile GPUs that are currently available on the market as I ve been considering replacing my aged i - M laptop with M GPU I had switching technology mobile graphics AMD problems... has "Enduro" even placed an order and paid for a machine but after reading much about the issue none of it from AMD themselves other than quot For those with M - Enduro issues are also being investigated quot by http twitter com CatalystCreator back on the th of August I cancelled before the unit was completed and shipped This is mostly a problem for Clevo EM EM based laptops which AMD mobile graphics switching "Enduro" technology has problems... have no way of bypassing the Enduro graphics switching unlike Alienware products which have a hardware switch Basically there is something very wrong with this immature technology Users are finding under utilisation of their cards for example Battlefield person multiplayer AMD mobile graphics switching "Enduro" technology has problems... fps dips with AMD mobile graphics switching "Enduro" technology has problems... lower recorded GPU utilisation when it should be going flat out Even worse is when the graphical settings are lowered to try and allow for more fps to be pumped out by the GPU the situation does not improve It is as if the Enduro tech is deciding that the lower workload required at lower resolution or graphical settings means it can lower utilisation further This means that someone with FPS issues at Ultra settings can drop to Medium settings and not see any improvement in output Threads about this http www rage d com board showthread php t http forums guru d com showthread php t http hardforum com archive index php t- html And many others Facebook awareness page https www facebook com Amd mEnduroUtilizationAwareness ref ts Many owners of systems with M graphics cards are now concerned with AMD s reluctance to comment on the problems that they are just going to try and sweep it under the carpet and move on to the next generation of GPU with the next generation of Enduro perhaps one that works No one is exactly sure if the problem is even something that can be overcome with a software driver or whether it is a hardware issue that the Clevo based laptops are stuck with nbsp

Preferred Solution: AMD mobile graphics switching "Enduro" technology has problems...

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: AMD mobile graphics switching "Enduro" technology has problems...

The silence from AMD on this is deafening. I honestly can't in good conscience recommend anything AMD related unless they get this situation fixed. The fact that they have tried to silence other manufacturers on forums says a lot. I would feel much better if they were just open about it and said what they are doing to fix the problem.

When I use the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network", I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
On the flip side, using the "Mobile Hotspot" option inside of the settings starts fine and works correctly.
I am running Windows 10 Pro x64 Anniversary Edition (build 14393) on a Dell Inspiron 7558. The wireless networking card is dual-band 802.11ac.

I have had a strange problem.
Occasionally after switching to the lock screen(Win + L), I am not able to type the letter "O" or "L".
If my password contains either one of these letters, I am not able to log in unless I use the onscreen keyboard.

Anyone has encountered similar problem or found a solution?

Thanks in advance.

it's on their routers and wireless cards. it claims to make your connection go faster or whatever. does it work?
 

A:is Linksys "SpeedBooster" technology on wireless equipment worth the extra $$?

Maybe, maybe not. I would personally go with N routers. All the SpeedBooster does is use frame compression, which allows for more data to be sent per packet, but not really a speed increase. But yes, it has shown to increase speed for G clients up to 10% or so.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

It did get a little better by running these

I'm running IE 8 on Windows 7.
I just formated my pc clean.
The problem however occured before aswell.

When I open a few pages, IE opens them as their "mobile" version (if you would access the page from a mobile phone).
For instance "www.clipfish.de" (a side like youtube) redirekts me to "www.mobile.clipfish.de". There are a few other sides where this strange thing occur.

When I'm using Firefox, it doesnt happen at all.

I didnt installed any plug ins (besides Flashplayer, divx and quicktime), nor set I up some weried configuration.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

A:False "Mobile Device" in My Computer.

First and foremost it does not matter if " the company doesn't keep completely up to date with security patches," YOU should. You should be running Windows or Microsoft Updates (suggest, notify only so as to not interfere with your work).

Do you run a good AntiVirus? You should, it's a must to protect your system and the company should be running an Enterprise version for all desktops.

Do you run an additional Anti-Spyware utility? Again, you should. Antivirus utilities often do not catch everything, and at other times the Anti-Spyware people become aware of threats before the AntiVirus, and visa versa. Running a good AntiVirus plus a good Anti-Spyware is best practices for protecting your system.

My company has SpyBot Search & Destroy (donationware) on their recommended list.

Try downloading SpyBot and installing it. NOTE: After updating SpyBot, you should always Immunize first (this proactively protects IE). Run SpyBot and see if what you have is a SpyBot or Adware.

Also, check your Add/Remove Programs, if it IS listed, uninstall it.

I have an issue with my iGoogle home page, which just started showing up today. When the page loads, it comes up in "Mobile" mode. Clicking on the "help" link and it shows up as "Mobile Help Center". I have tried this in all of the browsers that I have installed (IE6, Firefox 3.03, Safari 3.1.2, and Chrome 0.3.154.9) and get same experience in all of them. Tried typing in the direct link to www.google.com/ig, but it keeps re-directing me to www.google.com/m/ig, indicating it's the mobile version.

Anyone know what's going on here?

Hey,

I am an Android user and I am looking to get a HTC Windows Phone 8x...

Android has the concept of live wallpapers where you can interact with the background. The background for example could be a slow animation, or the background can be interactive when swiping (Example: Water background could be pushed with your finger when swiping the screen)

Is this kind of functionality available for the Windows platform, both mobile / tablet / PC ?

Thanks.!

I am using my mobile phone as a mobile hotspot. It uses the wifi to share the internet connection of the mobile phone on the Win 7 computer.
When I turn ON the wifi adapter of the laptop, it detects the shared internet connection and connects it. But it shows "No internet access". I have tried turning OFF the anti-virus and firewall.
The other devices like my 2nd mobile phones is connecting and accessing the connection perfectly. Even the same PC got connected and was using the connection but after I disconnected it and then tried again later, its now showing no internet access.

I don't know what's causing this since I was able to use the same connection on the same laptop a few hours ago and I don't remember myself messing up with the settings. So, I don't changed any setting or anything but still cannot connect.

A:Mobile hotspot - "No Internet Access"

Go to network properties and look at the connections available. Yes I see it's discovered this signal, but that does not mean it's the one it is trying to connect to. I have 3 possibilities on a laptop, one is home network, then BTopen network finally a dongle (just in case). The default connection is the first, when I change and go out side the home network WiFi signal, I will be told there is no connection, I go to the list and select connect to--and choose the one I need and it connects.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

First post!

Hopefully somewhere here can help me fix my in-laws' new computer. They bought an HP Pavillion that runs Vista 2 weeks ago. I worked fine until yesterday when anytime someonew types "h" or "s" something funky happens: The "h" loads "Hardware Diagnostic Tools" and the "s" loads "HP Support Information." This happens regardless of the application or the keyboard (I already swapped out a different keyboard and that didn't work). Is there a setting in Vista that somehow the h and s were assigned these two programs as hot keys? These seems like a stupid settings issue but I couldn't find anything within the hardware section of the Control Panel but I may not be looking in the right place. Any advice would be appreciated!

All very much new territory for me this so apols in advance it it's a really dumb question....!

I've already got Skype working ok on my Lenovo G50 laptop however it's the mobile phone "usage" if that's the right word that's confusing me. The problem is my ordinary mobile phone account is with the Post Office UK however they're closing down in September, so I'm wondering if there's some sort of small hand held Skype thingy with a screen instead rather than facing the dreaded minefield of Vodaphone and the rest who I have already had several bad and very expensive experiences with ?

Or is there not such a thing....?

Thanks in advance

Hi troops.

I have just been posted by my employers to an outside office with no land-line connection.
I have access to the internet via a ,"Dongle", on my lappy that connects me to a local server.

Question is,

If I connect my lappy to a wireless printer, scanner, fax etc all in one machine. Will it work through the ,"Dongle"?.
All the instruction info on the printer is for connecting to a land-line.

Any help much appreciated.

I have Windows 7 on a machine at home that the whole family uses. I've noticed that when i leave some applications running (ie...IE, Firefox, Mail, ect...) and someone else wants to login to do something they get the error message "Not Enough Resources to login".
So i will then have to log back in as me and close everything i left open so they can login.
There is no domain obviously since the windows fast switch user is being used.

Has anyone else had this issue or no how to resolve it?

If you fill in your system specs (lower left corner of your post) we would know what hardware you have.

Suspect the resources being used is RAM

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

I tried to associate the file extension .txt to a new editor program
with the well known cmdline programs ASSOC and FTYPE.

No, assigning them through WinExplorer menu does not work.
But this is another problem which should not discussed here.

When I type now one of the following alternative commands at the CommandPrompt then Win7 returns me something like:

assoc .txt=txtfile

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: .txt"

or

ftype txtfile=D:\notepad++\notepad++.exe "%%1"

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: txtfile"

Why?

The command above work fine under WinXP

A:"access denied" when using "assoc" and "ftype" from cmdline?

Question:

Did you run cmd.exe with administrative previlliges?

Ok, so basically, whenever I turn the computer on, 3 error messages appear:

- A virtual driver failed to inicialize DLL. Chose close to end the program. H:/Windows/system32/code/pRee.exe

- A virtual driver failed to inicialize DLL. Chose close to end the program. H:/Windows/system32/code/pRee1.exe

- Error loading H:/Archiv~/GBPLUG~/gbiehcef.dll. Couldn't find specific module.

(sorry if some terms are incorrect, my computer is in Spanish, to I tried to translate as best as possible)

Please help me solve this terrible problem, it is really getting me on my nerves! (oh, and if this helps, I've recently donwloaded this so called "Limewire acceleration", and whenever I ran the setup, it didn't work. I don't really remember the name of the website I downloaded it from, sorry...)

Hi and Welcome to the forum

I am almost certain that you have malware problems. Most like caused by you doing file sharing/ P2P - Limewire.

Suggest that you go here and follow the directions:

Hi Looking for insight advice re KB According to Infoworld it was quot Optional quot in May but I was not offered it then This KB3054476 "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" offered as week it was offered as quot Important quot and quot Recommended quot but only for one of my Win boxes I have read the MS KB article as well as THIS FORUM THREAD the latter of which includes a report of a BSOD due to this particular update However there isn't much out on the web about it And most of the discussion about it is overly technical for me And I am confused as to why it was previously offered as quot Optional quot but now is quot Important quot KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" or quot Recommended quot I don't think I quot need quot it as I have no webcam on this box And I don't like KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" to tempt fate by fixing things that are not broken So questions Is it safe to install Is it really necessary important Or would I be OK to hide it Thanks very much in advance

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

hi,

OK, this is a weird one.

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

If anyone can offer any advice on this curly issue it would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to TSF.

No need to post both logs. Just posting the result.txt log is enough.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link don't work) and install it. Run CleanUp! and click on CleanUp! button. When it asks you if you want to logoff, click on Yes.

Right click on this link http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/DelO15Domains.inf and choose Save As. Save it to your desktop. Right click on that file and choose Install. You may delete it afterwards.

Download AboutBuster and unzip it to a folder on your the Desktop. Do not run it yet.

Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 key until menu shows up). Make sure to close any open browsers. Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click Kill process for each one if they are still listed (they shouldn't be - but double check it):

C:\WINNT\system32\ntid.exe
C:\WINNT\System32\tibs5.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\addaj.exe

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

ASUS GT240 graphics card "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD" Can anyone help me with this error message? I can hear the windows startup sound but it shows no display so i plugged the cable into the motherboad and an error box opend wich stated "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD" with no additional information. I searched online and found that asus smart doctor can cause this and they recommend that you uninstall and reinstall the drivers to fix this problem but the pc is not picking up the graphics card to reinstall all the needed drivers. I also found people with the same problem and after they did a clean install of windows7/vista and all the drivers the error box still appeared. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

A:ASUS GT240 graphics card "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD"

Do you have the PCIe set as first to initialize in the BIOS? Also, have you tried the card in another slot on the MoBo? Have you tried cleaning out the slot with canned air? Have you tried using a pencil eraser to gently clean the contacts in the GPU where it plugs into the PCIe?

And please, thoroughly fill out your System Specs by clicking on the tab under your post.

Hello everyone
I have this problem for more than 3 months for now...

The INSTRUCTION AT "0x00a96ce0"referenced memory at "000000000" couldn't be written".

That's always what i get when i restart my computer,just before screen goes dark.
I believe that it has to do something with Microsoft updates.The reason i believe this, is that i once reinstalled my PC and didn't have any problem until i didn't update my PC.
And i posted here that thinking my problem was solved but unfortunately i was wrong.

Please if you have any tips on this one let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi all really hope you can help here its driving me crazy I have a lenovo E laptop which is a really great machine except for one small problem since christmas it has developed a tendency to randomly i havent freeze dynamic graphics "random" with pixelation. E320 with Lenovo been able Lenovo E320 with "random" graphics freeze with dynamic pixelation. to corelate the behaviour with anything from temp to usage to angle of screen to physical location freeze the system the display shows the frozen image with an overlay of dynamic pixelation this can occur when playing a graphics intensive game or while idling on the desktop while running on an external monitor both screens effected during booting or even while running diagnostic tests pre boot I've tried new drivers i've tried old drivers i've tried a clean boot the GPU and Lenovo E320 with "random" graphics freeze with dynamic pixelation. therefore system board has been replaced and still no luck a re-image is on the cards for when i have the required stuff pendrive with the bootdisc on but this stinks of a hardware issue Memory passes all tests and it really LOOKS like a GPU problem but that Lenovo E320 with "random" graphics freeze with dynamic pixelation. has been replaced to no help Updating drivers and bios seems to have HELPED but the system still crashes every now and again better then the quot every few mintues quot of yesterday any suggestions Couple of example screenshots

A:Lenovo E320 with "random" graphics freeze with dynamic pixelation.

Shand, I find solution for you.
This causes Overheating or updating BIOS if you update bios then cause BIOS stop working

Then make sure:
Don't replace GPU and other Laptop Components.
Don't overclock or use dangerous PC jobs.
Don't touching Laptop components and not removing Keyboard.
Run Full system scan with Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.org or other any malware removal software.


If doesn't help you Contact Lenovo by calling number 1-800-426-7378

I've had my HKC 21.6" monitor for over a year now, and i've been using it with my PC at 1920 x 1080 with no problems.
However, two days ago the screen suddenly went black and displayed the message "Out of Range". I've had to drop the resolution to 1680 x 1050 in order to see anything.

I've tested the monitor with the same VGA cable but with a different computer - this worked fine, so i'm assuming it's something to do with my computer.
I've tried reinstalling my video drivers, but this had no effect. My card is an ATi Radeon HD 5770, haven't had any problems with it before.

Obviously this is pretty irritating since anything other than the native resolution tends to look ugly.

Any help appreciated
 

A:Monitor displays "Out of Range" at 1080p (graphics card issue?)

Best thing I can advise is. Grab the latest WHQL ATI and CCC drivers.

before installing, uninstall your ati drivers in safe mode and your monitor from device manager.

Boot into normal mode and install the drivers. Make sure in setting you take off check for only display resolutions this monitor can handle,,, ok give it a shot.. let us know.. gl

A:"Intel HD graphics" update install crashed the computer

Click Start and right-click Computer then click Properties.

Open Device Manager and double-click Display Adapters, then double-click your graphics adapter.

Click the Driver tab and click the Rollback Driver button to uninstall the updated driver and revert to the original one.

When you have Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) drivers installed they may be set up differently than the manufacturer's drivers, which is where conflicts can arise.

If this doesn't work, boot into Safe Mode and choose System Restore to the point where you updated your graphics driver.

I have a pavilllion a1630n, currently with a GEForce 7600GS. I'm entertaining the idea of upgrading the video card, mostly to run Bioshock as well as possible. Belarc shows the following specs.

2.40 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor
2048 Megabytes Installed Memory

Slot 'A0' has 1024 MB
Slot 'A1' has 1024 MB
Slot 'A2' is Empty
Slot 'A3' is Empty

Board: ASUSTek Computer INC. NODUSM3 1.05
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 3.10 12/13/2006

I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to this this stuff, but I do know you can't just stick some fancy new $500 graphics card into any old cpu and get your desired results. From reading previous posts on the topic, sounds like motherboard and RAM are the two main factors in determining how far up the Graphics Card ladder you can go....

I'm not looking to go too far, maybe high end 8 series.. is that reasonable?

Thanks a bunch....

I just completed installing Windows 7 Ultimate x64. The installation went fine and and so far I have no graphic card problems. My card is a Radeon HD 4830 and as of now I'm using the default drivers installed during setup. I'd like to install current ATI drivers and the Catalyst Control Center so I have more settings flexibility. The following is the current driver information from Device Manager.

Driver Provider - ATI Technologies
Driver Date - 4/25/2009
Driver version - 8.56.1.16

I have the new ATI driver package downloaded and ready to install. My question is this. Since the drivers now being used are from ATI, should I or do I need to uninstall them prior to a driver update? I checked in the Add/Remove Programs and there are no ATI entries. If I need to uninstall do I remove from within Device Manager?

I don't want to screw up a perfectly working Win 7 install by doing something stupid. Any advice will be much appreciated.



When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using

Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Hi all, I recently had a computer crash and unfortunately had to "factory reset" it to restore it. Now the problem is my graphics and words are out of whack, they appear "stretched". (The aspect ratio I guess?). Anyways, I've been desperately trying to solve this problem and get everything on the screen back to the way it looked (perfect) before the crash. It is a Dell desktop, windows vista, and I believe I'm running windows 8? I haven't been able to figure out or fix this problem as I'm not that computer savvy, and I don't want to make it any worse. Any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated in fixing this problem.

Thank you.

A:Precision M4800 : Input lag at log in, Switchable graphics not functioning, GPU fan "chirping" when it starts up.

My personal experience was a long and trying one.  First they sent a tech to replace the graphics card with another Firepro.  Did not make a difference.  Then they had tech replace motherboard.  No difference.  So I insisted on a new m4800 with the nVidia processor.  That's how I got mine.  BUT, I would think if you pushed, maybe they could send a tech to switch out your graphics card.  Or at least send you a different model (for which you will obviously need a different driver) and then you could install or take to a repair tech.
For what it's worth, Dell knows they have an issue with this hardware configuration and I was told they had elevated the issue to their senior engineers.

Hey, I got my computer last September and it has been working perfectly up until last night when I was watching BBC iPlayer and suddenly it froze, Firefox Crashed, then it froze again and everything went black. Now whenever I try to boot up I get a BSOD saying that it failed to reset the display adapter. I can boot into safe mode and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers for my graphics cards. I get an error on the hardware info saying that the AMDA00 driver can't be run. If I manually disable the graphics cards then I can boot with no problems just using the onboard graphics.

I've attached the SF Diagnostic folder, any help is greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Got a shot of the BSOD to finally read the error as:

Lengthy process, but the only stable version of nvidia is 314.22 lately, which does not support 700 series GPU.

Also, check it physically that the GPU is properly seated in the PCIe slot.

If you anyhow can boot into windows with the GPU on, stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

If no improvement anyhow, we have to accept that the GPU is over.

I have big trouble with my two units of Dell Precision I want to disable quot Switchable graphics quot because some OS do not support two graphics simultaneously So I have unchecked quot Switchable graphics quot in the BIOS settings restarted and display is gone Notebook is working system is booting in unusable 7510 "Switchable disable Precision make graphics" BUG Dell REPORT: the background display is back lighted but nothing appears on the display I have checked BIOS and on two units with identical configuration I have been checking many times with different BIOS configurations Always disabling quot Switchable gprahics quot makes system unusable In fact I have successfully booted up one or two times with quot Switchable graphics quot BIOS option disabled In that case the Intel P graphic card was disabled totally and AMD FirePro was running perfectly all uptime Unfortunately it was one or two times attempts were unsuccessful When I disable quot Switchable graphics quot BUG REPORT: disable "Switchable graphics" make Dell Precision 7510 unusable and restart I get without-signal display The only solution is reset BIOS setting to default by removing and putting back the coin battery Could anybody confirm that issue My hardware configuration is Intel i - HQ AMD FirePro W M x GB DDR non-ECC and UltraSharp IGZO-Display Ultra HD

A:BUG REPORT: disable "Switchable graphics" make Dell Precision 7510 unusable

I also have almost the same issue with it. What I found out by now - if energy saving is on, you can let windows start (to the login screen that you don't see), close the display (enable standby), re-activate it, and mostly the display is coming after that. I never had to reset BIOS (v1.20) to make it work again.
As the screen itself is turning on (background led), i think the issue is about the connection from the AMD FirePro W5170M card to the display when switching is enabled. IGP isn't experiencing this issue at all.
What's also part of this issue is, when IGP is disabled, the display is flickering from time to time in Windows (Windows 7 x64). This issue neither changed when I updated the driver, nor was it affected by installing Catalyst.
At last I also saw 10-15% performance differences between the two modes (even if the application was run by the AMD GPU).
Our configuration is Intel i7-6820HQ, AMD FirePro W5170M, 1x16GB non-ECC, also with the UHD Display.

My ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 is showing up as a unknown device in device manager and i can't install the driver because it wont install a standard VGA driver

A:Graphics Card Showing up as "Unknown Device"

Hi, welcome to the forums

Are you sure it's a 9600 GFX card? The ATI/AMD site has no mention of anything above the 5xxx series of Mobility drivers?

It seems all info I find on the 9600 relates to XP as the latest OS for it, how old is the machine?

A:HDMI not working with TV "No Signal" - do I need a new Graphics Card?

Sometimes TV's wont recognize the connection. Hook up the hdmi like always, with the computer off. While connected, turn on the computer and see if that helps.

I've been having some problems with my computer recently (blue screens). I'm not 100% sure what's causing it but I have a strong feeling that it may be a faulty graphics card. The reasons why I think it might be the graphics card is because:

the screen flickers,
I once got a shock when attaching the monitor cable to the back of the graphics card (is this even safe?), and
Windows attributes the error to a 'device driver'.

Now back to my main question, can a faulty graphics card cause a monitor to "break"? Just today, my monitor is displaying all the colours wrong (a massive red tint). I've tried it on another computer and it's definitely the monitor displaying incorrect colours.
 

A:Can a faulty graphics card "destroy" a monitor?

Well, not destroy. Fry some circuitry, yes - VGA signals are 0.7V and shorting 12V to it is not a good idea

As for the shock you got.. Are you using grounded outlets and/or the same outlet for the PC and the monitor?

Hi,

I'm using Word but sometimes when I move a text box or graphic into an empty space, other text boxes/graphics jump about the page, often into the side/on top of each other. Any ideas why this might be happening and what I could do about it? I've formatted all the graphics/text boxes to "Layout-Tight".

Thanks!
 

A:MS word graphics/text boxes "jumping"

In years of using Word, I've never totally understood why/how graphics and text boxes do what they sometimes do. What works best for me is to always set the layout to "Behind text."

A:Computer uses "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" instead of my GeForce

Hi, Welcome to Seven forums.

Download the required driver software that matches your hardware definition. Save a copy of the drivers in a safe place, in case you accidentally happen to delete them from your PC.

0. Disconnect from internet and Disable your anti-virus program and before going to step number 1 (Important)

1. Boot computer in SAFE mode (press F8 during restart)

2. Extract the Driver software .ZIP completely to extract all folders. Extract the .EXE also.

3. Go to Device Manager

4. Select Display adapter (in this case it reads 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' that need to change to 'Geforce')

5. Right click and select Properties, select update driver

6. In the update dialog select 'Browse my computer fro driver software'

7. In the Next dialog window, select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'.

8. In the Select driver dialog, pick on 'Have Disk'

9. Browse to the folder you extracted the ZIP file earlier (locate the '.inf' file) The .INF file would be located in the Packages>Drivers>Display>XXX_INF.

10. Run the installation, and you are done!!!

11. Restart the computer in normal mode.

12. Enable Anti-virus programs.

Keep us posted.

After uninstalling the Standard VGA Adapter and manually erasing any remnants of old graphic drivers by using Driver Fusion, I attempted to reinstall the standard NVIDIA driver as recommended by DriverAgent. After downloading and attempting to install, I received a message from NVIDIA that my system was 32 not 64 bit (wrong), and installation was discontinued at that point. A VGA Driver was automatically re-installed at the next boot-up. Yet the Standard VGA driver (not the GeForce driver) still shows a configuration problem in "Manage" and I have been unsuccessful in reinstalling a new driver for it.

I otherwise have no visual problems with my monitors.
The Event Viewer does not seem to list any problems with a recent Chkdsk.
I have attached the logs which note the error.

Could it be something else or a hardware failure?

A:Standard VGA Graphics Adapter reports "tv_ConfigMgrErr14"

hi,

I really suggest you to uninstall DriverAgent. These software which search drivers for your system are really bad.
Remove any type of driver and manually download the Nvidia driver from Nvidia site. Also try different versions of drivers.
Run the driver setup program as administrator.
