Q: media server software interferes with graphics card

Hi there,
i've got a strange problem for you all out there, was hoping someone might be able to help me.
Any media server software i install (xmbc, serviio, nero media home, plex) on my windows 7 system makes my graphics card non functional, its completely undiscoverable, even in my bios, though it is still running? it works until my system is rebooted and every time i uninstall any of the above software my graphics card magicaly works again.
im thinking it doing something to the pcie slot, ive tried my card in all 3 on my mobo with the same result, i dont have another pcie device to test if its my graphics card. its frekin annoying!!!!
i have no idea whats going on, any help would be amazing.

my system-
windows 7 home premium
asrock professional z77 mobo
ati 7970 graphics
intell i5 3570k processor

Preferred Solution: media server software interferes with graphics card

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

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

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Whats a Good Graphics card for Gaming and using Adobe Software-Graphics

7...

I've done a lot of research on this because I built a new system back in August. While I am not much of a gamer, I needed a very good NLE machine. However, the card I chose is quite the gamer card but had all the extras I needed to run Adobe Video Collection.

I picked the Connect 3D Radeon X850XT Platinum card from Tigerdirect. At the time it was $350 but I know it's cheaper now. It's got everything you need for a demanding application like Premiere Pro 1.5 and its related software. 256MB of GDDR3 memory and dual DVI outs. I highly recommend this card. I've been using it since the start of September with Adobe and it's great.

Your CPU and memory are a bit more of an important factor with rendering and burning though. My new PC has a 3.4Ghz P4 and 2GB of 533Mhz dual channel RAM. It's an exceptional increase in speed and productivity over my old 2.4Ghz and 512 Rambus.

Hello there, I am looking for a dirt cheap, Windows 7 suitable graphics card for use with a PC designed for multimedia purposes (watching films, listening to music etc). I would like to be able to use the full visual effects Windows 7 has to offer. It must have an S-video output and be compatible with the Asus M3A78-CM Motherboard. I have 1 PCI Express x 1 slot free and 2 x PCI 2.2 slots free.

Please provide some suggestions, doesn't have to be brand new.

Either that, or something like the Gadmei XGA/VGA LCD TV BOX. I want to connect my PC with the motherboard mentioned previously to my CRT TV (Panasonic TX-28PL4 Quintrix). The motherboard has onboard graphics via dvi and vga outputs. The TV has an S-VHS plug on the front, as well as RCA Audio/Video sockets. On the rear, it has 1 spare scart input.

What are your thoughts?

A:Graphics Card/Onboard Graphics for Media Centre PC

the graphics card listed in my specs may only be 64MB, but it surprisingly runs aero.
If that seems to be not quite what you're looking for, another card I would recommend is the nvidia 8400GS. It may be 512MB, but thats about as high as it's specs go, but you will need a more powerful PSU (300W+). The 8400GS is about ?30 and a vga to RCA adapter seems to be about ?5 (i recommend you buy the adapter before the card).
The one in my specs just has a VGA port, but the 8400GS has vga, dvi and hdmi (i think the hdmi may need some further cabling in the case, not sure though)

NB (the card listed in my system specs may actually be the GeForce 7200GS, all system information programs tell me that it could be both and there's no sticker on it. all i know for (kinda) certain is that its 64MB )

I tried to run a check disk of my C: (System) drive, and was unable to do so through Windows. It claims that it cannot run due to a recently installed software package and recommends I use system restore to revert back. Odd thing is, I just recently used a system image to recover the system, and I have not installed any new software since that time.

The system image recovery feature of Windows seems to do some odd things, as well. For instance, my Windows update history is blank now; the updates show up in add/remove programs but not under Windows update.

I am currently running chkdsk /r through the Windows 7 DVD on the C: (System) drive. I'd appreciate any suggestions to fix my issue(s) for when I wake up in the morning. Thanks everyone!

Probably not hardware. Suspect system corruption.

First do a SFC

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

It may need to be run up to three times before sucessful

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

Then if nec. a repair install.

Recently acquired an A1186 EMC 2113 Server that sat unplugged for over a year. I am trying to rescue it. When I power it on, it lights up but the graphics card fan runs at full speed and no display. The current card is a ATI Radeon X1900XT 512 mb, I have read there is an overheating design flaw. I think it may have overheated. I would like to replace it if in fact it is dead. Not sure how to test it, do not have access to another server. Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced replacement card or a way to test this one. I would prefer a card that does not need flashing. Thank you in advance for any input.

Windows was able to successfully install device driver software, but the driver software encountered a problem when it tried to run. The problem code is 43.

I have tried reinstalling the card and drivers but it seems to make no difference.

A:Graphics card driver software won't run

You can try using system restore to a point before this crash.

If that doesn't work:

try using driver sweeper to clean it out.

Then go the NVIDIA web site and install the drivers.

Hi: If you don't want to change the power supply, I would go with the nvidia GT210 fanless since I assume you want your PC to be as quiet as possible + no fan to die on you. Read the reviews.  I see some folks have installed this card on P/S in the 240 W range. http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Passive-Graphics-01G-P3-1313-KR/dp/B004KABG1I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&... The card only draws a max of 30.5W so it should work fine with the stock P/S. http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-210/specifications As long as you don't tax the card trying to play graphics intensive video games, it should check all the boxes you listed.

I don't know if its a PCI slot or a PCI express cause it really doesn't say so.....

So if it is a PCI, can i get one from best buy becuase it has the option to get a PCI video card or a PCI express.

The memory for it i guess they said it can hold 512 or 256mb.

That's an old mobo....and all the slots PCI not PCIe. That being said you might find a decent PCI GPU for that mobo.

If you really want to get creative or ambitious, uprade your MOBO and RAM and then get a GPU. You can keep all your original hardware and case.

It used to have more start up software then now today, i don't know what might have caused or why it happen. I try reformating it again and same result. For some reason the Radeon 9250 series don't seem to work on my computer. Everytime when it reach to the desktop, the screen go idle-like. It's just blank black like the computer is not even turn on. But somehow the mouse function and the keyboard works. I can turn off my computer with the buttons and mouse click works. Just my screen goes blank black. Might there be some software i'm missing that cause this problem?
 

A:What software makes the graphics card work?

Umm yes the drivers

Anyway, presently the Monitor refresh rate is set too high in Windows (not in the Monitor itself) and therefore it won't display (being above the Monitors max level)

So you will need to go to Safe mode
By repeatively pressing the F8 key on Windows initial startup
Then select Safe Mode
And log on to an Administrator account

Then go to Device Manager
Start-Run-> Devmgmt.msc
Then remove the Display adaptor device (right click uninstall or remove)
Then restart to Normal mode again

Then download the drivers from Radeon support driver page

That is all

A:Confusion with graphics card driver software

The one from AMD should work as long as your laptop also doesn't have switchable graphics, which is where it also has Intel graphics that is used for low power/regular use and the AMD is used for high power/gaming use. If it does have switchable graphics then you will have to get the driver from HP as it will have the intel driver integrated into the AMD driver.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525.
I seem to have broken my display when I was trying out the Intel GMA Driver's feature 'Flip 180' which supposedly flips the monitor's display. Instead it exhibited what would happen if you change your resolution to 640x480, with really large icons. I tried to restart the computer but when I checked in my display settings it says something like:

"The currently selected driver cannot be used. It was written for a previous version of Windows and is no longer compatible with this version.

The system has started using the default VGA driver."

And in my screen saver settings:
"The screen saver can't run because it requires a newer video card or one that's compatible with Direct3D."

Aside from that, the computer works perfectly fine, but I don't want this to be a problem in the future. What happened here? Is there any way I could fix this?

Soo... What are the chances of a 6GB "980Ti" variant? A bit like the 780Ti was to the Titan Black?
Because it would be better for games and a hell of a lot cheaper

If the rumor mill is to be believed, the price is going to be $1,349, Most people who buy this for gaming will have no use of the double precision floating point prowess of the card, and the few that would probably should have spent a couple hundred extra bucks to get a proper Quadro!

Hi, I have a EVGA e-GeForce 7600GT 256 MB PCIe Video Card which supports the SLI technology allowing me to link up 2 or more graphics cards for greater performance. Now this card has DDR3 memory. I wanted to know if I can link it up with a DDR2 memory graphics card which also supports SLI. If I can, how will this difference affect performance?

Which card?? "A card with DDR3 memory", or "A thingy with a red switch on it" tell us just as much.
But if it's not another 7600 GT you're trying to SLi, just forget it, especially if you're going to buy the other card.

My graphics display suddenly stopped for my computer. My PC is not even recognising my monitor, I tested my monitor with some other PC's and it is working properly. I though graphics card not working.??

But since my existing graphics card is gone and there is no on board graphics card on my PC I am not able to uninstall existing graphics card and install new one.

Could some one please suggest me what to do in this situation to see some thing in monitor so that in can start doing Uninstall/Installtions.?

Thank you very much for your replies in advance. I really apprecite it.

Thanks

A:How to install graphics card when the existing graphics card in not working.

You could always stick the new one in and boot up in safe mode. Then proceed to uninstall all the remnant drivers. That *shouldn't* cause any problems, but it may be choppy when you boot up.(I've had this happen before, swapping a Riva TNT2 for a GF6600).

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

The comparison you are making between GPU brands is pointless as a diagnostic. The MAIN difference I can see is that one card requires external power, and the other one does not. A proper diagnostic would be to test another GPU that requires external power.

I've heard that the specific PSU you bought will sometimes not power all the hardware it is supposed so.
People saying it could barely power a SSD, or even an extra fan.

My thoughts. Try using another PSU, try using a similar GPU. Use your old PSU and see if it still happens for starters.

I have a HP Pavilion ZV 6100 with 512 memory running XP Pro. It has a media card reader and accepts most cards. I inserted a Sony 1 gig camera card into the reader and it went into the reader and left no part of the card in which to remove it. This will not allow the computer to boot up normally and caused it to start in Safe Mode. How do I remove the card?

Thanks,

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.

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?

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: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.

A:Problem installing new graphics card on Emachine/onboard-graphics

An extreme option

As you do have the option of a working computer prior to installing the new card I would back up any files that are important to you..
Then, before I would pay someone else BIG bucks, I would put in the new card and try a fresh install of windows. Force it to recognise your new card. The drivers that Windows will pick should suffice until the install is done and you can then install the card specific drivers from your disk.
This is given ONLY as a choice. I am not sure this will solve your problem but IT IS something this cheap bas____ would try before paying someone else.

Good Luck and check back, maybe someone else will contribute a better idea.

That is just how you should do that, it's unremarkable.

Should not be a problem at all, it's routine, you could add another card later and be just fine after disabling on-board again.

It's likely to be an improvement, but check it and see.
Onboard graphics are disabled in the BIOS (Try looking under "Integrated Peripherals" or something similar.
You probably don't need to do this, but it's nice to know how.

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?

Friends,

Lately I have been having graphics problems in games. There are these " artifacts", wierd shapes, triangles, ect that appear and "shot" through my screen. it is hard to explain what it looks like, except that it is NOT normal.

It is hard to say when these appeared. I have recently got a different monitor. It is not new. It is a Dell CRT monitor. I replaced 1 CRT with another because I am cheap .

I have the latest drivers, I think, for my graphics card ( GeForce 5700 LE ). Not great , but not terrible. I play the games with either low or medium settings. I ran a benchmark test that was terrible.

Any ideas as to weather it is the card or monitor?

A:Onboard graphics detected not graphics card

Hi , The option is the one where the nvidia card and intel on-board are shown, and the BIOS should select the nvidia card as priority if it can, and has a choice.
It's sometimes known as 'Primary Video' & the option is called PEG.
Make sure you save the settings when you exit or they won't be changed from before.

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

What is the ram & psu make and model?
Try clearing the cmos, per MoBo book.
First check to see that you used MoBo's stand off's correctly and
that the MoBo is not shorting out on the case.
Do a bare setup, only the essentials. Can be done with or without case.

1.cpu heatsink/fan
2.MoBo
3.1 stick of known good ram
4.video card
5. keyboard
6.monitor

Un-hook all power & data cables (except the power to MoBo)
remove all addin cards.
This is just to get you to the bios screen.
Failing this, try booting without any ram just to see if you get any error
beep codes, same with video card.

This should help getting some trouble shooting in order.

I just picked up an HP dx2000 desktop computer that has the "Intel Extreme Graphics 2" onboard video card. Im trying to play World of Warcraft on the machine and it is a bit jumpy due to what I assume is the graphics card. The system has 1Gb of RAM so I dont believe it has anything to do with the RAM.

My question is, will my system benifit from a PCI graphics card or is the bus too slow for PCI to show any type of improvement? The only reason I say PCI is because the system does not have an AGP slot.

Thanks!

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.

Hiya,

trying to resolve an issue with my homebuilt computer crashing while playing games. I had an HIS Radeon 5770 installed. I removed it and put in a Radeon 6670. When I powered the computer up, I got "no signal" on my display. I removed the new card and put in the old card again. "no signal"

I tried both in another PCIe slot. "no signal"

For the record, I have a Rampage III Formula mobo. There's no onboard video, so I can't try the computer without a video card.

Help?

Did you test the HD 5770 in another machine to see if it was indeed failing ?

I have an Alienware m14x laptop with a GeForce GT 650M graphics card, but lately my games have been recognizing the "Intel HD graphics 4000" as my graphics card.

Anyway to disable the intel card without messing anything else up?

A:Games only recognizing Intel graphics card, but using a real card

I don't know to much about Alienware computers. But the first place I would look is in the BIOS. My old T400 had an option in there to disable the integrated or discrete graphics cards.

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

The T420s with Nvidia GPU has two graphics card that can switch on the fly, if you only want the discrete gpu, just go into your bios menu under graphics there is an option to select discrete.With the Nvidia Optimus (which is what you have), it can switch between Nvidia and Intel GPU depending on your application needs. This will allow you to conserve battery or power. Expresscard slot 34 mm slot is occupied by the card reader that you ordered. What you are talking about within the ram slot cover, is the mPCIe slot, which can be occupied by a mSATA drive. http://forum.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/T420s-T400s-T410s-removal-of-4-in-1-SD-card-...

Windows XP on old Dell Inspiron computer. Whenever I try to load Microsoft Picture It! Photo 2002, which I know to be resident on my machine, the first (usual) screen comes up. Then we go to white and then the program starts in the background but good ol' Windows Installer jumps up and tries to install what's already running.

I lost the installation disc years ago and have installed a new HDD since. I have to click CANCEL about ten times before I can use the program. Went to regedit and it wasn't there anywhere. Not really concerned about this. It's just annoying to have to play their game every time I want to use my program

Any clues? Please, I would prefer responses from true deep computerists, Please, no re-install. Please, nothing but a response from someone who has been there and found a real answer.

Need screenshots? Let me know.

Thank you.

A:Windows Installer interferes

Hi, I don't know how much help I will be for you, but worth an attempt.

Did you carry the program over by backing up something, on a disk perhaps to put on the newer hard disk? How did it get on the new drive?

PictureIt 2002 is also found on some similar model Inspiron Dell CDs that came with new computers back in those days.... here is an example

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Microsoft-P...2995?pt=US_Other_Software&hash=item3392754cc3

Or,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MS-Works-Su..._Office_Business_Software&hash=item4ad928f5bd

These usually will install on a Dell. Or, you may be able to run a repair of your Picture It Photo software from Add/Remove Programs list....does it have a "Repair" button when you go into the Control Panel>Add Remove Programs and look up MS PictureIt 2002?

A:Skype interferes with sound

I don't think any sound system can handle more than one signal at a time. You can output the one signal to more than one output, and you can mix two inputs into one output signal but as far as I know you cannot get two different outputs out of one audio system. Your computer is judging that at the time of a Skype conversation the telephone conversation is the most important signal, therefore it mutes out any others.
 
If you have two sound systems on your computer - say onboard audio and an add-on soundcard - it might be possible to get Skype out ot one and the background to YouTube out of the other, but I have never tried this.

I am enquiring for a friend who found that Google Chrome would not load any sites. I helped him over the phone and, to cut a long story short, got him to uninstall and re-install Chrome via Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, during the installation process he receive an Error 502 message and the installation stopped. To make the story even shorter, I eventually discovered that one of his grandchildren had downloaded SweetMI, regarded by some anti-virus programs as being malware. His default search engine in IE had changed from Google to SweetMI. I got him to uninstall SweetMI via windows (I should have got him to use Revo Uninstaller) but the problem persists and he cannot download Google Chrome. We have tried lots of approaches but without success. Any suggestions?

Whenever I try setting a static ip it works fine but other computers can't access my files on the homegroup (and I can't access theres either) , they can join alright and access each others fine.

What do you guys suggest?

A:Static ip interferes with homegroup.

Are you picking a static IP that is in the range of the dynamically assigned IPs that the router gives out? I'm guessing that your static IP is the same as one of the other computers.

It's easier to let your router pick the IP address, and then use the router's admin console to permanently assign that IP to that specific computer. It's called DHCP reservation.

Depending on your computer as soon as you install the video card it may disable the onboard video. If you install the new card and it doesn't work then you will have to acess the BIOS and disable it from there.

what VGA coolers do you reccomend? (that do not attatch to the card)

My Gainward 6800Gt 2400\2ns, is a nice card and has quite chunky cooling, it does run quite hot and would like to cool it down for o/c purposes.

Incase you havnt seen the Gainward cards they are coverd in a chassis with 2 60mm fans which makes putting any other cooling on it hard, (however one side is exposed apart from the baseplate).

I was wondering if anyone new of anything to aid my graphics card.

Cheers, Alex

I have run into this problem before and maybe there is a simple way to address it but if so I'm in the dark (I hate when that happens).

The problem is that my laptop screen is very small and, like the situation tonight and other nights - I am installing a program and I have to click "Accept" to finish up and I can't see the "Accept" Link. If I move the window I see it is there but I cannot access it with the window displayed normally.

I don't see any scroll bar either on the side to allow me to move further down the page.

Anybody ?

To move a Window without using the mouse please select the program in the task bar and hit alt+space then M.

Now use the arrow keys to move the Window to an appropriate position.

Hopefully next time that Window opens it will open where you moved it too.

A:Laptop interferes with FM radio reception

Hi and welcome to TSG.

It's probably the charger that's causing the interference, try putting as much distance as possible between the charger and the radio.

Also something metallic between them, like a metal tray, might help. You may have to experiment to find the best position for it.

If the above doesn't help you can try running the laptop on battery when you want to listen to the radio, or another charger.

EDIT : it's worrying that it tripped a circuit breaker, I think you should invest in a new charger, preferably from a different maker.
