Is my graphic card broken?

Q: Is my graphic card broken?

My 9800gt for some odd reason doesn't seem to work? I'm not sure if it's dead because the screen stays black when I turn my computer on and the computer beeps like it usually does and then I hear the windows 7 start up sound thing and I can type in my password and it logs in.

Is it dead? Or is it something else?

Preferred Solution: Is my graphic card broken?

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.)

A: Is my graphic card broken?

Check to make sure all the connections are working and plugged in, e.g. power cord for the monitor, vga/dvi for video. I know that seems rather obvious, but sometimes it's the easy things we overlook.

Are there any other ways to make sure it is indeed the video card before I go and buy a new one heh Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Broken Graphic Card?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but...
Your graphics card is artifacting. Compare with some classic examples here

The checkerboard pattern is a textbook example of having a "cooked" GPU. This particular card is known to run very hot and even a small build up of collected dust would raise this even further. Unfortunately the damage is irreversible.

As you have two seperate cards connected by an internal SLI bridge, even narrowing down the fault to doubly hard over a single GPU card.
You'll need to buy a new card.

hi i have an acer 5920g, with an nvidia 8600m with windows 7, a few weeks ago i was playing batifield 2 and my laptop crashed, upon restarting the laptop the screen had lines down the screen and would not start any games or complex images such as in i tunes with the artwork, i have used system restore, and updated he drivers, i have also payed for a brand new anti virus and completed a full scan, somtimes the laptop will restart in the most basic colour settings i have ever seen and this usually happens after i have reinstalled the latest drivers nd restarted the system, device manager comes up with error code 3 if that helps at all, i have no idea if the card itself is broken or if there is som ther underlying problem, but i would be very grateful for any mor ideas

my friend gave me a graphic card ((ATI RADEON model AIW 8500dv. 64 mb i think)) anyways, so i put it in my comp and when i turned it on, it was black and said "no signal" so then, i checked out some forums and i disabled my current card ((SiS 630/730)) and then retried putting it in, but still no luck. is it the card thats broken? or is it not compatible with my comp? my comp doesnt have an agp slot so i stuck it in some other one, im pretty sure it was the right slot, since it was the only one that worked, anyways, any help would be great, thanks u guys.

A:is my graphic card broken? or is it my comp

unless you are clearly forcing it, the card is in the right slot (agp). in your mobo's bios, try setting promary video adapter to AGP instead of onboard, if not already done so. i had a 8500agp card and it worked fine for years. the the computer an OEM make (mass-produced prebuilt)?

I have a HDMI cable for my monitor, with a nvidia graphic card...

but now I have a big doubt, I dont know if my motherboard's graphic card's imput is not working anymore or if its my graphic's card after a FLASHY BLACKOUT today...

my nvidia control panel is not working anymore... whenever I try using VGA or HDMI with my graphic card it doesnt show any sign in the screen... so im currently using my normal VGA motherboard's imput...

I tried using an old graphic card and its not working, I tested the VGA cable and HDMI cable and they are working perfectly...

yet, after I set the graphic card in the slot, the fan it start working, if I unplug the graphic card but leave the curent cable, it doesnt start the fan so I guess the motherboard's imput is working

so idk what's the problem here, I have all the drivers and everythign was working perfectly before the blackout

A:Broken motherboard slot or graphic card

Well... its too late and soon for expect an answer but...

I tested my graphic card in an old motherboard and it was working... it didnt load windows cuz of the diferent motherboard but connecting my VGA in my gpu worked, and the HMDI didnt work I guess because it need to be configured after windows loading etc

I just placed a 7900gtx on a fairly old computer. I connected the card with the extra power cable and everything but as soon as i start the computer i get no picture, there's nothing on screen. The fan on the card is spinning and i can feel it getting warm, also i hear the loading sound through speakers so window loads up fine. I have an integrated graphic card so my computer is still usable, but i can't game or anything with it. I was just wondering if its the card or the pci-ex16 slot thats broken.

A:Can you change a laptop video card/graphic card?

Unless the laptop has onboard graphics, there is no reason why the card can't be changed.

Of course, I am not very knowledgeable with GFX cards, so I can't necessarily tell whether is has onboard graphics or not.

A:video card/graphic card reboot problem

boynamedanurag Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about booting and video card problems and wanted to help. So, if I understand what you're saying, you reinstalled Win7 and the PC boots OK, right? But when you then install a video driver and reboot, it does not boot, right? My guess is that you have one of the old DV6 laptops that has two video chipsets, something called Switchable Graphics.  And the problem with that is that only the HP OEM video drivers will work on that laptop.  IF you install other ones, such as the ones you get from AMD or Nvidia, they will NOT work -- which sounds like what is happening to you. What DOES work is restoring your PC using HP Recovery Media because that will contain the HP OEM drivers.  Media. This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".  If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entty and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while! Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

Thank You for your responses


A:What is the diffret in a video card / graphic card?

A video card and a graphic(s) card are the same thing. What you have now is an integrated graphics card. Integrated graphics cards have terrible performance. Now, we need to know whether your motherboard has a PCI-E or AGP slot. Download CPU-Z , take screenshots of the tabs called "CPU" and "Mainboard" and post them here.

They should look something like this (the information and logo will be different):

I have ProLiant ML110 G6  I've bought Sapphire Radeon R7 250 2GB GDDR5 card. Before I buy, I've checked compatibility of my PCIe v2 x16 slot with PCIe v3 x16 card. I'ts compatible backwards so I can use v3 card in my v2 slot i MB. But When I was trying to install it I've noticed that on MB is inprinted PCIe x16 45W (I attached photo below).  So can I use this card - in specification is given that consumption of this card is 70W. Can undervoltage break my G card? Maybe I should ure Riser with extra molex pin? x16 slot gives 45W and molex can give 35W = total 80W. What you think

Are these the same thing? I have an old Dell (as you can see), but I like it. I was told that I could improve its performance by adding a video card. When I look them up, I see pictures of odd-looking devices that in no way resemble a "card." I can only find 2 that will work with this computer. Does that seem right?

A:Video card vs graphic card?

"Video Card" and "Graphics Card" are the same thing.

There are 4 different versions of the 745. A "minitower", a desktop, a Small Form Factor and an ultra small form factor. Which one do you have? It makes a difference for a video (graphics) card.

The minitower will take a PCIe type video card. With the small power supply that can limit you (if this is the model you have). The others versions are even further restrictive as they will require "low profile" type cards.

I'm looking to replace my old GTX 260 OC graphic card, but I'm not up to date with the new hardware, so I need a little help

My current GTX260 is fine in most games, but after i bought a 24" monitor, it's having a somewhat hard time running some games at 1920x1080 with decent graphic details. Especially GTA IV is maxing it out, and thats the game i play the most.

I was doing some research and found out that GTA IV doensn't support multi GPU cards, so i guess i need some hardcore single gpu card? Like 5870, but that card is nearly impossibile to get unless i wanna wait several weeks

Any ideas?

My rig is:
Q9550 2.83ghz
4gb DDR3 pc12800
Samsung Spinpoint 1tb
Asus GTX260 Top
Gigabyte EP45-T Extreme
PSU Corsair 650 watt

A:What graphic card should I buy?

Well, if you only want a single GPU card and you don't want to wait for the 5870 and you already have a GTX 260, I suppose that leaves the GTX 285.

may i know wat graphic card is best for gaming?

nVidia geforce or ATi ?

may i know what is a VGA Controller ?

A:Graphic card

Both companies make excellent cards for games. Which one is better is a matter of opinion for the most part, unless there is just one specific game you want to play. For example if you ONLY play one game, and it is openGL based, then nvidia tends to outperform ATI. Each has it's own area of specialty, but in general they even out.

And to answer your other question, a "VGA controller" is just another name for "graphics card".

Thank you

I installed a geforce 8400 gs graphic card on my '02 gateway and i cannot get it to work. My original vga is not compatible with windows 7 therefore everything is huge and looks outdated and crappy. My PC Tech insured me that this graphic card would have no problem with windows 7 on my PC. When i go into the install drivers option on my installation disk it says (Only windows xp and Windows Vista, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, are supported by this driver cd. I tried to download a driver from NVIDIA or EVGA but it still is not working! I also disabled my standard vga adapter in the device manager and enabled my NVIDIA GEFORCE 8400 GS, and still nothing. Can anyone give me good news, I need help badly, please!

A:Graphic card

What happens when you try to install the drivers fro Nvidia's website:

Did you get the PCI or AGP version of this card? Did you also set the primary video to the matching interface in the BIOS and try to disable on the onboard video in the BIOS as well? You must also plug the monitor into the new card before you turn on the computer.

But honestly, thats not the ideal system to be running Windows 7 on.

if you want to go down the amd/ati road, have a look at either an ati hd4850 or hd4890 - they should be cheaper now that the hd5870 is out.

i'm sure other members can recommend a well-priced hi-performance nvidia card if we wait a bit...

Hello I have Pavilion seria 500-306nd descop pc i wannt too upgrade graphic card from geforce gtx 745 to 1070 and i was wondering if i must change power suply for new grapic card.I cant find any spec about my power sup so can u guys give me some advice ???Sry my bad eng its not my native language and thank you for help in advance 

A:New graphic card

Hi, Yes, there is no info on HP sites or third party sites referencing your PC's power supply. You will have to open the tower to check the existing power supply specs. The 1070 requires a minimum 500 watt power supply. I doubt your system shipped with a 500 watt power supply. It is also possible a 1070 card will not fit in your system. The 1070 requires 10.5 inches in length and a double slot. If the 180 watt power supply is a laptop (external) power supply you may not be able to install an internal power supply. Jay

A:PSU and Graphic Card Help

Exactly which Cooler Master PSU are you trying, how many 12v rails and what is the amps per rail?

ATI says you need a 450W psu for a HD5770 but recommends a 600W, this will also be affected by the quality of the unit.

I would be very surprised if it worked with the existing 250W psu, that wont produce anywhere near enough to power the graphics card on its own, let alone the rest of your system.

I think this is this your PC?

Based on that info you may not get the most out of a HD5770 as it will be bottlenecked by the rest of your system!

It is possible that the card itself is faulty, it does happen.

I have a intel hd graphics card which is 1GB yet I am not able to play gta 4 episodes properly.

A:Graphic card


To run GTA 4 properly you need at least a strong dual-core processor and a discrete dedicated graphics card. Intel Integrated graphics cards are not really designd to run these heavy graphics games.

However, if you post your pc specifications (Processor, RAM, Graphics Card...) and if you dercribe your problem with details, i can try to help you to solve your issue.

A:Which is the better graphic card?

I'm curious as to why you are against a video card with a PICE (6 or 8 pin) power connector especially since the power supply you want has that connector. Your budget would easily support a 6770, 6790 or even a 6850(this would almost max out your budget) but these cards all require a PCIE power connector. Between the 5670 and 6670 I would defiantly go with a 6670 It has 80 more stream processors and GDDR5 is a definite improvement over GDDR3 but again it doesn't cost much more for a 6770 which has almost double the stream processors but requires an auxiliary PCIE power connector.

It all depends on your needs:

A great mid-level card if the ATI Radeon 9200SE. It comes in 64 or 128MB flavors, works well with Windows, and is pretty good at game support (I play a lot of SoF2 and Madden 2004, and both look great. I also used it with RtCW with no issues.)

A higher-end gamer's card would be something like the ATI Radeon 9800XT or the nVidia FX5950. Very robust cards, but they carry a price.

If you're into 3D rendering (Pixar type stuff), then look at the ATI FireGL X1 (128MB) or X2 (256MB). Big $$$ here.

I've been trying to figure out whether it would be in my best interest to upgrade my mother board and cpu as well as add some ram or to go with a EVGA GeForce 8800 GTX / 768MB graphics card and max my ram out at 2 gigs. As I currently cant afford to do both but which ever route I take I would like to have the best, so if I go with the vid card I would like to have the best and the same rule applies to the M board and cpu..
I am currently running a amd anthlon xp 3000+ cpu
512 mb of ram
w/ Nvidia Geforce 4 Mx...

Any suguestions as far as what would be best in regards to a game based pc would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you....

I would recommend these: +
Free 5 working day delivery, I doubt's free shipping is any faster. doesn't have a single decent quality, affordable power supply.
If you really want to cheap out, here's a 9500 GT for you: (the 1 GB of memory does NOT in ANY way increase performance of such a low end card. Just in case you started thinking.)

Hi there,
If you were to install a new graphic card in a PCI slot do you then have to disable the onboard graphic card and if yes how would you do that.

SAPPHIRE 11188-22-20G Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (OC Edition)

I wanna play diablo, SC 2 and some new release games. Is it good enough to play those?? like with high resolution and stuffs?? Cause my budget is around 200-300 and this card is like the cheapest in my list.

That is a great card and will handle the games you mention without any problems as long as the rest of your system will support the card just fine (PSU, temps, etc).

Hi Guys, 1st thanx for the pointers regarding last thread about my Sapphire Radeon HD 6770

I bought this card to get 3 monitors, and it did that, I think it got a little help from windows anyhoo, as for eyefinity, did get it for a time, but very problematic, and now I don't even get the options, add the fact the playing X3 Albion Prelude was like a ticking clock every tick was a jerk, was the final straw.

So may I ask you all, I need 1 graphics card to run min 3 monitors, and with a bit of gaming on the side, I like the eyefinity idea but it has to work this time round, okWhat Graphics Card.

Win 7 64bit Triple core 3g ram ..... price tag around the ?150 to ?200 gbp

I have checked out a few only I don't know if they run 3 monitors,
Appreciate your help

If you want to try nVidia, I believe that the real 600 series cards (650, 660, 670, and 680 cards, along with the "ti" variants) can run 3 monitors. Web search on nVidia Surround.

Eyefinity is supposed to be better, but whichever work is best for you.
