Hi there,

My PC is reasonably mature now and after getting a few BSOD's I just thought I was getting a little unlucky every so often. However they are now increasing in frequency and I can't seem to see a recurring theme in-between them.

Here's the log file. Hope it helps. I'm happy to provide any more info required.

Thanks a lot for any help at all in advance

Model SVE151G11L. I do not want to delete the contents on the HDD so reloading the OS will only be a last resort. When i power on first screen shows:

Automatic Repair
Automatic repair couldn't repair your pc

I then choose Advanced Options which shows 4 options:

Continue- Exit and continue to windows 8
Use a Device- Use a USB device, network connection or windows Recovery DVD
Troubleshoot- Refresh or reset your pc, or use advanced tools
Turn off your pc

Anything I can do here to get back to windows without losing any files please? I don't wish to use the Troubleshooting option if it will erase any files on the HDD?

A:Sony Vaio E series Laptop cannot go to desktop

You should be able to "refresh" your pc without losing your files. Im not sure about programs, but personal files you shouldnt lose. This should  work, I have done it myself and the Microsoft website also says it will not remove personal files when you choose this option. But I will say do it at your own risk. If it works, back up your personal information onto an external media for safe keeping incase something like this happens again.

Gentlemen/Ladies: I am strongly considering the purchase of above HP Desktop. I will use the system for surfing the web and video and photo editing. I am a novice in the area of video and photo editing. I am taking up the craft as a hobby and see where it takes me. The primary components of the system will be as follows:

- Windows 7 Home Premium (Upgrading to Windows 8 when available)
- Processor:3rd Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K quad-core processor [3.5GHz, 8MB Shared Cache]
- Memory: 16GB DDR3
- HD: 256GB SSD + 1 TB 7200 HD
- GPU: 2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX680 [DVI, HDMI and VGA via adapter]
- Power Supply: 600 Watt
- Liquid Cooling Solution
- Monitor: Looking at Dell 27"2560x1440

The system comes equipped with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere 10

HP's Phoenix series is a favorite of some gamers. I was considering an Imac but decided against it because I wanted to stay with a PC. My question to the forum is are these components a little overkill? The price is not a barrier for me.

A:Is the HP-HPE h9-1210t Phoenix series Desktop Overkill for Me

I guess it will depend on how much video editing you end up doing. It is absolutely overkill for surfing the web, and overkill if you only do a little photo editing. The extra cores will help with the video editing, but you will never use them surfing the web. Even if you do gaming it will not help much. Games rarely use 4 cores of a processer. If you want a system like that, you would be better off building it yourself. It really isn't as hard as most people think and you will get better quality components, and exactly what you want. And you always have the experts here in chosing components and assembling the computer.

Hello!  I went to put my desktop into sleep mode before bed last night and noticed it had turned off.   No idea why.  I go to turn it on and NOTHING.  No lights, no sounds, no fans, nothing.  The power signal light on the back is flashing green.  I followed some steps from this page Unplugging everything from the back and holding  the power button for 10 seconds didnt do anything.  Pushing for 1 second and waiting 10 seconds didn`t do anything.  I took off my side panel for the next steps, but didn`t want to touch anything as I don`t want to harm anything.  I`ve tried another outlet and the light keeps blinking green.  I haven`t had this computer for too long, maybe a couple years or less.  I take good care of it with good antiviruses and making sure to put it to sleep mode everynight, and keep it updated etc.  Looks like the power to the machine is okay since the light is flashing....  is it something internal? Wondering if anyone could help?   Feeling anxious.  Please and thank you!

I understand that you started through the troubleshooting guide for power supplies.  The step about disconnecting internal components is essential to continue the troubleshooting, however.  If you are not comfortable with that, maybe get a more knowledgeable friend to help.  Otherwise it is off to the repair shop.

So, yeah. 5 year warranty compared to two of Buffalos and WDs, but does that actually mean that much more reliable a drive? With the problems with Seagate drives lately and a price slightly lower than with other similar drives I'm a bit wary...

However, I DO NOT like the graphics card 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M - looks like they are putting laptop graphics card into a desktop.

My question(s) is/are :

Can I replace this card with one of the NVIDIA GTX series graphics card ? Which one will you recommend? I want to put in a new GTX 590 or any of the following :

GeForce GTX 580
GeForce GTX 570

Will it be a simple SWAP or I need to upgrade PSU as well.

If I need to replace PSU what will be specifications of the new PSU? I do not know what is the rating of the current PSU. Do you think, it will handle the new GTX card?

I recently got an HP 2311x Monitor for Christmas and hooked it to a Lenovo H200 tower. I am unable to get past Windows splash screen. BIOS says "we apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this." I have tried going into safe mode and just about every other option to no avail. I asked HP tech support to see if bad monitor but it is fine. I also called Lenovo Idea tech support and they said a tech will call back. I think something is uncompatible with Lenovo and HP monitor. It worked just fine when it was hooked to an old CRT. Cant handle the latest flat screen technology perhaps?. Any suggestions?

Do you know anyone you can borrow another monitor from?

Have you checked monitor settings to make sure frequencies are within the range supported by your display device?

Another option would be to manually disable the display adapter driver. What type of display adapter is involved? Intel, NVIDIA, AMD?

I have the above PC and was hoping to increase the Ram size from 2gig to 4 gig.
I had a fruitless chat with Sony tech support (as usual) and they inform me that 2gig is the max for my machine.
The mobo has 4 ram slots 184pin config and at the moment is carrying 4 x 512m memory sticks type PC3200U and was hoping to fit 4x 1gig type PC3200U sticks. Unfortuately the PC takes for ever to boot with 4 x 1gig sticks in.
Can anyone advise if this machine is at its max of 2gig or can the BIOS be pursuaded to see 4gig?

Hopefully I can workout the new 4 x 1gig sticks config, if not I will have to return them to the supplier. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a set of HP Z210 Workstations with E3-1245-V2 Xeon Cpu's, SSD boot drives and varying sizes of memory from 8-16GB 1600Mghz DDR3 ECC. We use Windows 8 Enterprise for these machines, with Hyper-V enabled.
We get regular driver failures from the 2 sets of USB controllers on the machines (Mainly and issue for the KB & Mouse) that can only be resolved with a full power down (not restart) and a power up. This happens at least once every 1-3 days per machine.
I had gone through the HP support, but they have advised this isn't an issue on their side, and I had agreed all along. I was just hoping to get some traction by notifying them. Anyway, after a lengthy trouble shooting session, we found that once Hyper-V
was enabled, the fault arose.
As it was an Intel chip, they I asked them. They advised that on Windows 8, the drivers are supplied via windows update and that it was not their issue.
So, how can I get this resolved? Not through HP or Intel, surely through MS? Maybe not. Disabling Hyper-V is not desired as I the teams with these PC's are developers and require local visualization. Also, we have templates ready for Hyper-V, I don't really
want to remove Hyper-V and use Virtual box or VMWare workstation. but I am at wits end with the fault and lack of help from the vendors.
Please help.

A:Hyper-V causes Intel(R) Series/C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller driver to fail

I have found a work around for this fault with the USB failure - ENSURE YOU POWER  THE MACHINE OFF - DO NOT RESTART.
Its almost like the restart doesn't initialise the device correct, thus causing a failure.

I know it's been posted a s#!+load of times, but I figured I'd go ahead and get something straightforward- all the other posts have been in jungle English, and haven't included the proviso I'm looking for.

Anyways, my situation is that I bought my X1900GT from Newegg around Christmastime, as a present to my ainsel (ownself, for those not familiar). I've been getting kind of disappointed in it recently: It underperforms and often crashes on STALKER:Shadow of Chernobyl and some more modern games akin to it. It also runs hot as Hades.

I'm in the market for a new card. I'd like to go DX10, but the late-production DX9's (7900 series) seem to outperform a lot of the more affordable DX10 offerings (8600 series), especially at higher resolutions, due to the 128-to-256 bit difference. I could splurge and go for an 8800, I suppose, but it would be a hit to the wallet and I'd have to postpone :cough: "Aruban Getaway 2008".

So: I don't want to pass up on the new line of DX10-only Games for Windows (Age of Conan, Crysis, etc.) that have been hyped to all hell just because I stuck with price and performance instead of currency and novelty. I need some help deciding. Then again, I could always wait until DX10 becomes the vogue and buy a cheaper, but better card then.

A:Price v. Performance in 7-Series + 8-Series: Advice Needed

Keep what you got and see what's comming next. I have a 8600GT as a stopgap until something better comes out. There has been talk of a Nvidia 256bit card to fill the gap between the 8600's and 8800's. I can't fit a 8800 in my case, if I could I would just get the 8800GTS 320mb now. If I were you, wait for the game to upgrade instead of upgrading and waiting for the game. Your X1900GT is no slouch either.

I purchased one of Sony's new NW-E MP3 Players this mourning, and was very happy with what I had got. It was small, good looking and had the USB Connecter built in. Very pleased.

But later on I discovered it was not all to be. I wanted a MP3 Player that was a Generic USB Device, so I could drag and drop my files without converting them. I transfered some of my MP3's straight onto my Sony, and they "wern't" there when I went to play them. I have to use the software they provided.

Is there any way around this? I don't want to convert my songs into .oma or whatever it is. I want them so I can drag and drop my MP3's straight onto the Removable Device, and straight back off them if needs be.

After some intense computer usage, for example gaming laptop gets hot. Of course it'snot a problem. Problem is that fan starts spinning faster and then suddenly stops, after a while fan gets 100% again, and again 0%. CPU gets throttled at the same time.

laptop cleaned, thermal paste replaced. Tested on 4 different BIOS versions (6.70, 6.70 unlocked, 6.80, 6.80 unlocked) . Tested on Windows 7/10.
With installed toshiba programs sometimes message telling me that the cooling system had been damaged appears and fan lock on 100% (and the problem is gone then :))

I can provide any additional information.

This problem doesnt occur 2-3 years ago while playing same games or running same programs. I think BIOS since 6.7 is broken. Could somebody provide older versions of BIOS?

Im about to go nuts.

But now it wont record any cds. I use Record Now to record my cds. Mostly music. so now when I got to record it says your recording device does not writing to CD Media. this option is not available with this recorder. It reads Cds, and play music, and games, but now it wont record or burn or whatever you call it. It was working ok for about 4 months now and boom this happens. HP support site doesnt give much help, its out of warranty and theres not chat help for it, and they will charge a arm and leg to get help. All the drivers are current, ect It and my mouse are the only ones using USB ports. I hope someone can help me, my husband is having music cd burning withdrawls lol thanks Dawn

Hey guys, I'm currently at school and I'm trying to get a computer to work on an old Win95 system. Its an HP LaserJet 1200 series printer, I downloaded the latest drivers from HP to install it... it prints a test page, and it even printed once from MS word, but it won't print from my teacher's grade program... do you think its a driver problem? If so, should I try to find an older version of the drivers? Anything you might know would help... thanks.

Is the teachers grade program a DOS program? Maybe changing the spool settings for the printer from EMF to RAW and making sure it's set print to spool is selected, also make sure you have spool DOS print jobs selected.

dpproject, welcome to the forums.

The "Creative Audio Service" should be on by default after you install the drivers. To check open Services (click on the Start orb and type in services), and see if it is set to on and its startup is set to automatic. When it is running it will show up in Task Manager as "CTAudSvcService.exe".

Hi Guys, thanks for accepting me on this forum.
I bought a Samsung Series 3 notebook from a notorious (rip off) high st retailer 6 months ago. Its been unopened in its box until yesterday when I gave it to my wife as a birthday pressie.
Eagerly opening it, we switched it on but all we got was a lighted back screen and a small rectangular dot. It would not boot up.
Have I been an idiot by not using this laptop as soon as I bought it. ie, has the system closed down ?
I havn't contacted the seller yet.. Thought I would check the experts out first.
As you can tell, My knowledge of computers is very limited.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Seven Forums Snoopster03.
Windows update is often behind with drivers. How old is the laptop? The ATI designation indicates 3-4 years? You can go the Toshiba support site and see if they have a newer driver available for your model. Most laptops have specially created drivers which should be used for best performance.

Can anyone help me please?

A:ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 Series problem

You're likely having problems because you're trying to use two different GPU architectures together at the same time. Take out the 3200 and use the 4570 and you'll be good to go.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, which I think I am now that I've read over it twice more:

the yellow exclamation mark denotes there was an error of some kind during installation. Did you see anything wrong in the generated report? You can try uninstalling the drivers from the Control Panel and upon restarting, boot into Safe Mode and use Driver Sweeper, check "ATI", hit Analyze and get rid of all of the files that come up after the scan.

Boot back into Windows and try the install again using the latest available drivers.

Hi guys!

Just had my nightmare barebones bundle shipped back to me after a repair to find there is seemingly no power to the I/O front panel for my Fatality Series Sound Card as the lights don't power up. This was working seemingly fine prior to the transport. The headphone jack works and the system recognises that headphones are connected but the volume knob does not function from the front panel.

Took the case open and quadruple checked that the cables were properly seated and in the correct way at both the sound card end and the front panel end and still no joy. I then again removed both ends and firmly reseated them, making sure they were not shimmyed in or bent and still no joy.

Could this be driver related?

Or perhaps even connected with the BSOD problem i experienced before?(

RMA'ing this could be an issue as me being the extremely clever individual threw away the packaging (yes I am a massive fool)

A:Fatality Series Front Panel Problem

I have an Xfi with the disc drive slot front I/O panel. Other than possibly the basic Xfi drivers the only other thing is the interconnecting cables. If the cables are connected correctly, and I'd reseat both cables at both ends again, then it has to be a hardware problem and most likely in the card.

You need to be more specific. What website? What part of your speakers turn red? The LED on the physical speakers or the speaker icon by the clock or what? Has everything been working fine for a long time or have you recently installed this sound card? It sounds like the driver may be installed correctly, conflicting with something else or needs to be updated.

Uninstall the ATI drivers/WDM Drivers/Control Center from the Control Panel. You only need to reboot once after all these uninstalled, not after each one.

On reboot let Windows install whatever drivers is pleases or none at all - don't provide the CD.

Now run these ATI uninstallers and reboot:

The video driver is here:!
All-in-One downloads are here:!
Seperate WDM driver here:

Each one is an Executeable that will install the drivers automatically, but you may have to go to Device Manager and click Update driver on any devices that the driver fails to install for and let it search for the correct driver. Might also help to uninstall it and reboot.

A:Radeon 9800 series bad gfx problem! big puzzle...

Similar Issue

Yeah, same here. Except I have a Radeon 9700 PRO graphics and every now and then (usually like once every two days) the graphics will run vertical lines and dots flickering across my screen, and also messing up the graphics of the game I currently play (polygons are stretched and out of order, textures aren't in the right place, gaps on the walls, etc.). It happens to any game but the overall problem is the graphics card. Sometimes it happens while I'm on the desktop as well but it isn't as bad as when compared to playing a Direct 3D game. The only problem I think is going on is that its overheating because it runs fine when I open the side case of my computer chassis and let it get some air and cool off. Bit disappointing for me though because I have about 5 Fans as it is (6 including the CPU fan). But they're not strong enough so thats a reason why it gets to about 92-105 internally. Not good for me and alot of you might think I'm nuts, lol. The only option I think you can do is to download and install new graphics drivers @ and go to Customer Support. Just pick the correct Driver for the graphics and operating system, install, and the problem should be fixed. Another possibility is installing the latest DirectX drivers @ If those two methods dont work then just buy some chassis fans - hope this helps.

I asked him at the time if I may experience this problem again when I next update my drives and he replied yes most probably.
Its been sometime maybe 12 months since this happened and tonight I decided to check if there was a driver update for my card so I went to the AMD website and downloaded there app that scans your system and detects if there is a newer driver available. It detected that there was a new driver 12-2_xp32dd_ccc.exe it downloaded it unpacked it and began to install the driver all seems fine until it gets to the Catalyst Control Center part of the installation and then a dialogue box pops up saying Install Package Failure click OK and new message appears Failures occurred during installation view log

A:RAM / BIOS problem with:TP 1200 series (1161)

Hi there, The 1200 series TP officially only supports 128mb upgrade. You can, however use 256mb successfully but the chip has to be low density. You can tell if it's the right one by looking at the chip. It has to have 16 chips on it, eight on one side and eight on the other. Use PC100 SDRAM 144pin SODIMM. You can get them off ebay for about £20.00. I have just upgraded my 1200's memory with one and it works perfectly. I think the reason you computer was showing 64mb was because that's what's installed on the M/B in the factory and the 512mb chip was not showing at all.

Hello there!
So I was experiencing some unsolving problems with my laptop so I figured refreshing it might do the deed. But when I did so my touchpad scrolling started not to work: I couldnt scroll it up, down or sideways in my windows 8. Now i`ve tried pretty much everything I could imagine to fix it, but I just cant figure it out what`s the problem and why my scrolling is not working. I need sugestions, because I couldn`t sort this out by miself. Thanks!

I just put my old computer back together, when I get this neat little error...I've exhausted all my methods of problem solving and well, I still have a problem. That problem is, whenever I have my monitor attached to the radeon, and set the resolution to 1024X768, the computer restarts. It runs perfect on 800X600, and it works with 1024X768 with the onboard card. I don't show the onboard video in the device manager, and I'm not totally sure it's disabled, causing me this problem. Windows has the most updated driver for my card installed.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to help me with my dilemma. I have a Samsung series 5 ultra. Model number NP530U3C-A01US. Running Windows 7. I was in the middle of updating my bios and my computer froze. I waited well over 30 minutes and still nothing. I couldn't move my mouse or anything. Also I could not shut it off. I had to push the power kill button on the bottom of the ultrabook to finally get it to shut off. Now when I turn it on it doesn't do anything. The screen won't turn on and there is no activity after about two seconds.

My big question I guess is if it is now a paperweight?

Okay, so I have here before me a Sony Vaio NR series laptop.
It has a large problem: The WiFi Doesn't work properly.

For some odd reason, when you start it up in safe mode, the WiFi works perfectly.
When you start it up normally, you see the WiFi light comes on and it connects to one of the preferred networks like it's supposed to, until about a minute later, it turns off the WiFi light and disconnects from the network, and will not find any networks. When you click "Diagnose why windows cannot find any wireless networks" it says "The Wireless Capability is turned off" or something like that and says I should turn on the wireless switch. However, the wireless switch, is already on.
I can flip it as much as I want, it does nothing. The light will not turn on again until I restart it, only to have it do the same thing over again.

I know it's not a hardware problem, cause it works in safe mode just fine. So why doesn't it work in windows when it's started normally?
Help would be much appreciated, I'm pretty close to just reloading the operating system.

EDIT: I have uninstalled and reloaded the updated driver software for the wireless LAN card... no luck.

You also need to indicate more about your system specs to get any idea of the problem, like: What operating system and its release level? What is the make/model of the wifi card?

Hey all, let me get down to the point. Lately my steam games (Insurgency, TF2, and ZPS) have been acting up. When I play them, I can usually play 5-15 mins, but then, my character or camera freezes up, like you're being disconnected. However, I can still hear people chatting and hear the game going and see damage indicators. It doesn't go away though, so I have to disconnect. Afterwards, I cannot rejoin that same server--the connection fails. I either have to rejoin another server completely, wait a bit, or restart said game. I've been trying everything possible I could think of to fix it. I uninstalled some programs I got around the time this started happening, completely uninstalled steam and its associated programs, antispyware and antivirus scanned, and updated my gfx card drivers. Can anyone help me?

It's a really frustrating problem and make its hard for me to do my job and have fun.

Some tech. help would be greatly appreciate as I do not have the money to have it looked at professionally. Thanks a bunch in advance.

I bought this pc a week ago but only noticed a couple of days ago that when the machine goes into sleep mode I cant wake it up properly. I thought that it was my wireless mouse at first so changed to the included non-usb one to see what would happen. Ok here is what is going on. The PC is a HP with a Intel® Core™2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz CPU:0, has Japanese Vista Home Premium installed, 4gb ram, NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS etc. When the PC goes into sleep mode and I try to wake it up, I get the display up just fine, but the mouse indicator is frozen. Sometimes I get that dreaded BSOD and when I try to boot up again it wont. I then have to go back into safe mode (F8) and choose the second alternative which I think reads something like this in English [abondon restore and reboot]. Having gone through that the pc boots up fine. Can somebody please suggest what the problem might be and how to solve it please. I have searched the web somewhat and have seen a post somewhere here that suggested that it may be connected to the graphics card. I have tested the graphics card out and there seems to be no problem there, and the drivers are the very latest.

Thank you in advance.

Please post the BSOD information as it will help us to isolate the problem.Where did you get the video drivers from? I generally avoid Windows Update and HP for video drivers - preferring to get them from (in this case) Have you tried to roll the drivers back? Have you tried removing the old drivers completely, rebooting, and then installing the newly downloaded nVidia drivers?Is this 32 bit or 64 bit Vista? 32 bit Vista doesn't recognize all 4 gB of RAM (I've got it on 2 systems at home). Although I haven't noticed any significant problems with it, I'm starting to wonder if there's any drawbacks to using too much RAM on these systems.

My b-in-l has just bought an Acer 3000 series laptop. It appears to be partitioned into two sections, C & D ~ both of which are around 37Gb in capacity.

When we right-clicked on the C icon and chose properties, it comes up that 35GB is used up with only around 2.5Gb left ~ this would appear to be exactly the opposite of the way things actually are!

Hi, this is my first post on this board.

My computer currently does not play any sound. Under device manager, there is an exclamation point next to the Creative SB Live! Series (WDM) entry.

Can this be solved by just uninstalling the driver for that device, restarting the computer, and allowing Windows to reinstall the driver?

I recently had a problem with my USB ports --- namely, that nothing was being recognized by them. All the USB Root Hub entries had the same exclamation points, and I was told to uninstall and reinstall the driver for the Enhanced Host Controller. This worked, and so I'm wondering if I just have to do the same thing this time around.

I have another problem with this computer (involving an incredibly long load-up time between signing in under a profile and being able to use any programs), but I'd like to do one thing at a time here. Thanks for any help you can give.

A:No Sound --- Problem with Creative SB Live! Series (WDM) device

I'd try uninstalling the driver and rebooting. If your running an XP it should provide a sound driver for Creative? If not - pop up to Microsoft updates and click Custom not Express and see what comes up under your Hardware, for system updates. Jazz

I searched on the internet and came to know that it happens because it is not booted in the UEFI mode and then i tried again but it doesnot go into the windows setup and shows a black screen with the notification that no operating system was found.

Before everything, I apologize for my English, because I'm Pole and when I have problems I use a translator.
OK, now my problem. I have an old laptop, Acer Aspire 2010 (for detailed specification you can go to my profile to System Spec bookmark) with Win 7.
Before I did formatting EVERYTHING WORKS FINE.

And problem is that, after formatting computer i can't correctly install drivers to my graphic card. It's quite complicated, i tried a lot of solution but none of them worked. I am going to explain this as easily as I can.
So, when i try to install drivers by normal way (version 6.5 for xp - newer drivers don't operate my graphic card), system show this communicate:

When I saw this i realized I forgot to install Mainboard drivers, but there is problem with compatibility - there is no drivers for this Mainboard working with Win 7.
So I give up with Mainboard drivers and focused on graphic card. I can install these drivers in Troubleshooting Mode but there is another problem. When I shut down computer there shows bluescreen, always the same: When I restart my computer, resolution is good (1280x800; without drivers 1024x768) but there is no transparency from Windows Aero.

It is quite old issue, however once again happened to be a problem after fresh reinstallation of Win 7 (disk format) and Aero not working at all. Transparency also disappeared.

Three days looking for new driver.
Maybe someone has the same problem - so it is solution:

1. starting from standard VGA installed by win 7 during system installation process

2. install old driver for for XP (delivered by notebook producer); it results with better resolution but not aero and not transparency.

3. download driver for Radeon Pro 9700 - catalyst_8-31-100_vista32_rtm

4. unpack it - it creates folder ATI/SUPPORT/catalyst ...

5. go to control panel, dvice manager, and update manually driver for graphics card browsing to this folder described above.

6. it updates driver asking in the end for restart,

7. restart - Aero is again !!!


maybe it is possible to bypass step 2 but I am not sure.

A:ATI Radeon X1300/X1550 Series (256mb) Problem

What games are you trying to play? What card do you actually have? It may be from that series but the X1300 and the X1550 are two different cards with the X1550 a bit better. Anyway, they are both fairly low powered cards for high end gaming. Depending on the games you are trying to play, low settings might be the only way to play them.

That said, if you haven't already, go into the BIOS and disable the onboard graphics. As long as it is enabled, it is unnecessarily tying up some of your system RAM and perhaps it is conflicting with the ATI card.
