I'm really confussed about this issue, but I'll explain whats happened and if anyone has any tips please pass them on.

I have a machine by, running win 98se, 500mhz celeron, intel on baord graphics and audio.

I purchased a prophet 3d 4000xt 64mb pci graphics card and followed installation procedure and install card success fully and have been using it with no problems.

3 weeks ago I got given a 700mhz P3 prosessor and replaced it with my tied celeron, and the machine works a dream (considering it's spec!!) again no issues.

I then decided to upgrade my OS to Win XP (Pro). I booted Win98 and started to upgrade, everything started fine until the computer had to rest.

After searching for the MBR the cumputer would 'Hang' on a black screen with a white flashing cusor in the top left corner.

It took me ages to figure out that it was my graphics card that was the problem and after uninstalling it the system booted with no probs and completed the upgrade.

So no I start the install process of card and the same black screen on start up appears.

I've downloaded up to date drivers for XP from Hurcules website but nothing seems to be working.

The ATI Radeon x1650PRO does not have a high power requirement so it is unlikely to be related the PSU. There are two possible problems,

the first to look at is did you install the card correctly?

the second is, do you have the correct drivers for the card. ie 64bit

Hello TSF.

First off, I think I should start by saying my PC specs:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 1, .Net Framework 1.1 and 2.0, 32 bit
Processor: AMD Sempron, 2600+, 1.6GB GHZ
RAM: 512mb + 1GB tablet
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon x550, 256MB (I know, old)
Hard Drives: C: Total - 30GB, Free - 8GB; D: Total - 45GB MB, Free - 44GB;
I've been having some trouble since last friday.

I thought of adding all what I did, but it'd be long and unnecesesary. I'll just post what I did after formating.
I was getting some blue screens saying that ati2dvag.dll was stanked on a infinite loop. After a lot of unsuccessful fixes, I formatted my Hard Drives (which explains why I have so much free space).

Now after I installed the ATI latest driver, my computer keeps crashing. It doesn't crash on secure mode though. I don't see any blue screen now though, the computer just freezes, screen goes black for a second, and when the image comes back, the graphic card is not working right anymore (I know this because the image refreshes much slower). Or it just freezes permanently.

I tried older display drivers, like 8.1 and 9.1, HECK, even 5.2. None of them made a difference.

I'm so tired... I've spent hours and hours on this... I also lost everything I had when I formatted...

Please, help me...

A:ATI Graphic Card issue.

Welcome to TSF.

Sorry, but I have to ask this . . . . Why are you still running WinXP SP1 (or even SP2 as it indicates under your username)?? If this PC is connected to the internet, you subjecting it to a lot of vulnerabilities. You really should install SP3.

You can download it here:

Both the download and the install will take a chunk of time, but it'll be worth it in the long run. Also, I'd strongly suggest leaving your PC running overnight for a couple of nights so that it picks up all of the updates released since SP3.

Anyother suggestion: Exhaust all least destructive troubleshooting methods before doing something such as formatting your HDD. Although that is occasionally necessary, it should be a last resort.

It could very well be that the graphic card is going bad. The only way to tell for sure would be to install it in another PC and see if you have the same problems. You can get a similar card on eBay pretty cheap or you can upgrade.

Since you've gone as far as formatting your HDD, reinstalling the OS, drivers, etc., I'd say that you have pretty well knocked out any chance of it being a software issue.

Hello. Recently I bought Gigabyte HD 4650 1gb agp 8x card. I unistalled drivers for my old card, removed the old card, put this new card, and plugged in everything. I turned on my pc, installed drivers and directx from cd, and restarted. But i then i noticed some problems.
First, Aero looks weird(picture:, so i turned it off. Second, in game scenes and game itself works perfectly, but intros, and other prerendered scenes are really slow and laggy(1 fps!).
Third, when i start playing some game, it lags a bit but after a few seconds it stops and works perfect.
Fourth, some games don't show graphics correctly. Examples:
Assassins creed 2(first scene):
NFS Carbon(if i set visual treatment on high, otherwise it works normally):
Also, I noticed that Catalyst Control Center doesn't show SmartGart and VPU recover tab, and I think they should be there.
I installed new drivers, installed newer version of directx, didn't helped. I removed drivers, same thing, i played with some options in Catalyst and ingame options, nothing. I changed some compatibilty stuff in windows, same thing. Please help, I really don't understand why it doesn't works properly. I meet all the requirements for this card, and this problems really frustrates me. Thanks in advance

A:HELP! Graphic card issue

Hi, welcome to the forums

Firstly, when you say "new drivers" are you referring to the one's provided on the install CD/DVD? If not then download the latest and see if that helps.

Secondly, for uninstalling drivers I'd recommend using Driver Sweeper to completely eradicate any trace of the previous driver and see if that helps.

Hi guys,

I need your help, there is something wrong with my brother's graphic card. When he turn the computer on, he is getting some funny colors of the text in the bios screen and there is flickering on the screen.

Here is the screenshot:

I don't have a problem with my own graphic card on my computer as it is perfect clear on the screen, but my brother is getting flicking and some funny colors on the screen that you could not read the words on the screen. When I put mine graphic card on his computer, everything works fine as there is no flicks or funny colors but if I put his graphic card on my computer I believe i would get flicks and funny colors.

Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

Do I have to go on the bios to change on the settings?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

thanks in advance

I'm hoping that I've put this in the right forum

A couple of months back, I bought Tomb Raider: Anniversary for my computer and kept having random crashes while playing it. After this annoyance got out of hand, I had my computer checked and the problem appeared to be a faulty hard-drive. With no apparent way to rescue it, the offending item was duly removed, and the problems ceased.

Until now.

Within the last month or so, I've acquired a number of new games, these being ShadowRun, Halo 2 and Assassins Creed (all for PC, obviously). All these games have caused my computer to freeze intermittently and eventually crash (Blue Screen of Death!), which I can assure you is irritating as anything. Especially when it wipes your game data.

As you can imagine, these games have high requirements for play, and I'm wondering whether its my graphics card that's behind this series of annoyances? I have a Radeon X1950 Pro, which is initially accepted by all the games (I do have the minimum requirements for all of the aforementioned titles).

So, can anyone suggest what my problem might be? And, even better, might you be able to suggest a solution? Altair and MasterChief need you!

Many thanks

P.S - If I've omitted any major details, please hasten to tell me, so that I can amend them forthwith!

I bought a geforce 7600 graphics card about 6 months ago and ever since using it the computer froze while playing certain games, especially those with high graphical demands like BioShock or Brothers in Arms etc.. Sometimes on the title screen other times shortly after starting a game. It seemed to be ok on older games like Thief 3 or Enemy Territory but I've recently moved and bought a new TFT monitor and now even Thief 3 freezes at the title screen! I had a CRT monitor before and this didn't happen with Thief 3 (except maybe once or twice in game).

When it freezes, the mouse can't be moved, no keyboard buttons function (even the caps lock light) and the music that happens to be playing in the background goes into a 1 second loop of sound, I have to do a hard reset every time. This has also happened occasionally while using music production software, and even once or twice it happened while the computer had no applications loaded, at the desktop screen. But it will *always* happen while trying to play a game.

I have checked the CPU temp straight after reboot and it hovers around 46 - 49 degrees so I don't think it's the CPU overheating. Just wondering if it could be the graphic card overheating, or some fault in the actual product or maybe the power supply (which I bought 6 months ago too). Is there anyway I can check these out without spending more money? I mean if I buy another card and it turns out to do the same thing, then I'll know it&... Read more

I am running windows Vista. I have just reformated and then I literally started getting graphic card errors *Note was working perfectly fine before hand!!!!*, so I don't think it's the graphics card. After installing Vista *At this time I am running on onboard graphics*, I installed the installation disc that came with the card, and then the most recent drivers. But when I restart to ocmplete driver installation, I get BIOS beeps *2 short, 1 long* which indicates a video error *can someone give me more information on this*. Since it didn't work I decided to reformat again this time installing a later version of the graphic drivers 186, *which I know are stable from when I know I used before I reformated*, and still no luck. The thing again, which I must emphasize, is it was working 100% *no troubles at all* before I reformatted which was yesterday, and my display is connected and coming from my graphics card. I go to device manager and I get error code 43 can someone also get me more in-depth information on this as well as the BIOS beeps.

Much appreciated, and I hope to god it isn't my graphics card

Hard disk: 1TB Samsung 7200rpm 32MB cash
Monitor: SONY LCD TV 32" Bravia

I installed windows 7 x64... and my nightmare begins.

First I got some BSODs during installation of drivers that came in card package. I am not sure if it was graphic card or motherbord drivers. I downloaded and installed newest 9.12 Catalist from ATI site, drivers for 5800 serie for windows 7 x64.

Then I proudly installed DIRT 2 that came with ATI RADEON 5870. I got couple of crashes during DIRT intro as many other ati card owners complaint about on forums. I think I eliminated that problem when i set GPU and memory frenquency to be 850MHz and 1200MHz for all windows energy saving states (there are 3 of those in ati profile file). Before I did that I had quite a few graphic card crashes with stripes on screen and had to hard reset the computer (problem that is also well known to ati card users according to forums).

A:BSODs in Windows 7 x64. Graphic card or memory issue?

The debugger can't access symbols for your copy of Windows 7.
Please let us know where you got your copy of Win7 from.
If it was on a disk, what did the disk say?

There's really nothing that's identified by the BSOD's.

First, please uninstall your copy of Acronis True Image - it's an older version that may have some issues with Win7 (even if it's listed as "compatible"). You can reinstall it after we've finished troubleshooting.

Please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions to see if it can get us any extra information:

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"

first, i'm apologizing for being a computer idiot, but I've never actually messed with / installed a sound card myself. I had it installed by someone who knew what he was doing. :\

okay, so:
i just did a clean install of Windows 7.
a few months ago, i had a new graphics card installed to allow me to play The Sims 3. everything worked fine for months, just exactly like it is now, until I installed Windows 7.

Now, in my device manager, I show two graphics cards:
- Radeon X1300/X1550 Series (Microsoft Corporation WDDM)
- Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

Both show up as fully updated with working drivers, and claim to be working properly, but in my display settings, it shows up as "Generic PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter." I've disabled the VGA Graphics adapter in Device Manager, but when I restart the computer, it says "Default Monitor on," with no adapter listed.

Even though I always hooked my monitor into the motherboard, I tried plugging it directly into the graphics card, but the monitor shows nothing except for the "Monitor is working, test red, test blue, etc."

I also tried to enter BIOS and disable my onboard video card; but I didn't see an option to do that (I have Phoenix BIOS on an Emachine T2615, btw).

When i remove the drivers of the graphics card (in safe modus) and restart so the card gets installed again, it works normal again for some time.
Mostly on the first start up of the day, after a little browsing i get 'display driver stopped responding and has recovered.' But after some time it gets slow again, and i get a blue screen(bcc116) . So i remove the divers in safe modus, let windows install the drivers again and it works again...

try reinstalling the driver if you can, or get e newer version if there is one. if you can't get it off of that pc, burn the driver onto a disc from another computer, and put in the problematic one and quickly install driver

or you could set the screen to default settings while you install driver e.g. (My laptop) Intel Series 4 Express Chipset Standard Monitor. Or Standard VGA Resolution.

Hey all, I have had this issue for a few days now and I think its the graphic card causing it.

Currently im using a Nvidia 560 Ti and last few days when I try to play some semi graphic intensive games I keep getting the "graphic driver stopped responding and has recovered" every single time, and if I continue playing after I get that warning, after a few minutes the entire computer freezes and I need to do a hard reboot. I have tried different games and I have this issue on games like Skyrim, Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 4. However other games that is less graphic intensive such as Starbound, Eve Online, all works fine, I can watch 1080p movies all fine aswell. Note that this started just a few days ago, I have been able to play all those games above without a problem for a long time.

I have tried various things like checking temperature (which is fine, howers around 50 degrees in games), I have tried updating drivers to latest beta drivers and other various settings in the nvidia control panel, without success.

So my question is, is there other things I could try, and is my graphic card really the issue? I have ment to upgrade it, and maybe it is time, if yes any suggestions? Im a fan of Nvidia and I have been thinking about the GFX 770 one.

Thank you in advance

Edit: I did not try downgrading, im downloading version 331.65 at the moment to give it a try.

Try completely uninstalling the graphics driver. Run CCleaner to fix any registry errors. Also try reseating the card.

First of all:
I don't know too much about computers, so use easy language please.

I have sent in my computer to get repaired and got it back yestersay. Since then i've been trying to get it to work properly again.
I can't play any of the games I used to play before I sent it in to get repaired (for example, Battlefield 3). I can start dota2 but it looks pretty messed up. I can run minecraft though ^^

Anyway, after a lot of questions asked, trying out different stuff and after getting further and further to the end of this problem I've come to this:

My computer shows me that I have an nvidia geforce 7025 nforce 630a graphic card.
Although it says in the computer description that it SHOULD have a AMD HD 6870 1GB GDDR 5.
My screen isn't plugged in the graphic card, since it doesn't recieve anything from there. It is plugged directly to the motherboard.
So, from what I understand the nvidia card is the integrated graphic card or am I totally wrong?

Anyway, the device manager can only find the nvidia card and I cannot run any game smoothly on this computer.
Before I realized this possibility I've tried to download newer drivers for the nvidia card, but it didn't help.

Please help me to get my ADM HD 6870 1GB GDDR 5 to run!
I'm trying to google for solutions, but I'll give this site a shot.

Hey, I recently put together a PC and I've been having problems with it since. When I initially built it, the specs were:

i7 920 2.67GHz
Asus p6t Motherboard
8gb RAM
500gb Sata II HD
ATI Radeon HD 3870x2 (the card with with 2 GPU's)
500W unbranded PSU
1 added 120m coolermaster fan

Shortly after I started using my PC there was a power surge that knocked the power supply out. I recently got a new power supply. A 650W Silverstone PSU that I thought was more than enough for this. The problem that would occur now is that the computer would restart during games and sometimes while processing/rendering videos in adobe premiere.

When I would enable the 'crossfire' option on my card (to enable both GPU's to work) the computer would no longer just 'restart' the entire screen would hang or the colours would go out of sync shortly after which I'd have to restart the computer. This having happened I assumed the problem was with the graphics card, not the new 650W silverstone I got. I upgraded to a newer card; Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX460 768mb. The specs are now as follows:

i7 920 2.67GHz
Asus p6t Motherboard
8gb RAM
500gb Sata II HD
Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX460 768mb
650W silverstone PSU

You've got Asus motherboard, hence the first thing I'll look at considering the issues you are having, is at RAM settings/voltage in the board's BIOS, these should be exactly the same as on RAM packaging, but even that doesn't guarantee that it may not be the issue, so basically you'll need to fiddle around a bit with settings/voltage in case default specs doesn't work.

You may also consider stress testing your graphic card using OCCT (including vRam). Regards

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.

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.

"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.

For the last few weeks I have been attempting to diagnose an issue with my PC! It used to run more or less any game without fail, I could even often play on the highest settings... But recently? Everything seems to either flash, flicker or stretch out the textures!

Here are some videos of the games with their respective issues:

Skyrim: Skyrim choppy/flicker issue - YouTube (Beware: If watched non-sober you may puke!)
Star Wars: Force Unleashed II: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Graphic Issue - YouTube
The Sims 3: The Sims 3 graphical issue - YouTube

As you can see, they all have their own issues... I decided to try some old games and the first two I tried were GTA Vice City and San Andreas.

Vice City was very normal, and not much to mention, but San Andreas had the same issue as the Sims 3 and Skyrim just to a lesser extent!

Here is San Andreas: GTA San Andreas slight flicker? - YouTube

After it first happened I assumed it was that the graphics card had needed a driver update, so I done that and restarted the game... and it had the same issue! Tried pretty much everything to fix it up to the point where I gave up and done a full destructive restore to factory settings, after hours of screwing around doing that I put in a game and... exactly same as it was before the restore!

Does anyone know what is going wrong with my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (see screenshot).

It is a new install and the issue appear on several windows and program installations.


A:Windows 7 Graphic Issue.

I'd check the installation disk for errors or corrupted data. don't know off the top of my head how to check though.

After that, reinstall your graphics drivers?

I doubt it's a font problem, as the window itself is corrupted.

hi guys,

I just bought a 6600GT today and i am currently experiencing a few probs..
My PC will random auto shut-down (not auto reboot) and this happened a few times question is does this graphic card have any PSU-power requirement? currently my PSU is a 300W one....
Secondly, sometimes my comp refuses to do POST even after multiple restarts..lights are blinking on the tower but the monitor is unable to detect my graphic card... what is causing these probs?


A:Help regarding graphic card

Check your requirements at this site:,aid,119585,pg,2,00.asp

See if you have enough wattage. 300Watts is not very big for a current spec'ed PC.

I want to upgrade my graphic card. I have a XFX 9500 GT 1GB now

I would like to upgrade it to a GTX 260 or a HD 5770. Please suggest me as to which one would be better?

and also I have a motherboard XFX nforce 630i (PCIE 1.0 slot). Can I install any of the 2.0 cards on it?

Please suggest ASAP

PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards. PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v 2.0 will be able to work with the other being v 1.1 or v 1.0.

PCI Express

5770 or GTX 260 - I think I know the answer

If not,
google 'GTX 260 vs. 5770' and you'll have plenty to take in.

I'm planning to upgrade my graphic card soon when I have the money and would like which one is better for cost vs effectiveness. A ATI Radeon HD 4870 or a Nvidia GeForce GTS 450?

A:Which graphic card is better?

The 4870 has roughly 20% better performance. With the prices you got there, their performance/cost ratios are pretty similar.

Of course, if you can find a benchmark comparison on stuff you use the card for, that'd give a better estimate.

Also want to mention that the card is running at 80-87 celsius when I play starcraft II, and I dont know much about graphic cards but aint that really high?

A:New Fan To My Graphic Card

Asus and Gigabyte have a habit of making non reference cards i.e it is hard to find a after market cooling solution for them, as most after market cooling solutions are for reference cards. In short, what your asking may not be possible.

Price for Cards like the GTX 460's e.g are dropping rapidly due to new models having been released so maybe you could consider an upgrade.

Well since my stock graphics card is pretty bad I'm looking to update to a better one. Now I'm just learning about computers and looking in my manual it says :

One APG 1.5V 8x/4x slot
Three 32 bit PCI bus slots(support 3.3v/5v PCI bus interface)

So basically I'm wondering does this mean I can support both a APG and a PCI graphics card or are they the same thing?

Also I see 256 MB, 128 MB etc what're the differences in them really?

Finally I'm looking at these two graphics cards and I'm trying to learn if my computer is compatable for either.

Anything you guys would recommend would be cool too but my price range isn't too high as I'm only buying this to play CS:Source + a few other shooters. Say 50-200$?

Finally for a second time my computer specs:

AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3000+, MMX, 3DNow, 2.2GHz
752 DDR Ram
VIA/S3G Unichrome IGP
16.0 MB memory approx

As I side note my computer runs CS horribly basiclly being so choppy and I can't play.

Thanks to anyone who replys and if there's anymore info you need just ask.

A:Graphic card help

Those cards you're looking at are PCI-Express. You're motherboard only supports AGP and PCI(competely different interface from PCI-E). A few good cards in you're price range that would run Source flawlessly. $169.99 $114.99

Value Card, with good performance for what you're looking for. $84.99
