My 1712 video card has just died. Does anyone know of any options to the Geforce 5700 that will work? I don't use the computer for gaming so playing a dvd is the most taxing task the card would be hit with,
I am hoping i am able to replace my video card in my 5920g.
I believe it is MXM2 and as such can be replaced.
The current card is the nvidia 8600m-gs and I'm very much afraid it isn't going to last very long, i bought this machine to play games (COD4, Bioshockand such), since the 8600 is included in the bad cards list you can see my dilemma.
My questions are, Can this card be replaced?
If so what can i replace it with other than the 8 series nvidias?
How difficult would it be to replace? I'm not afraid to open it up and i've done a bit of work on other systems.
I have had a long and complicated history with the product. I bought it back in March.
Then, I got a virus on the system. I did not get a restore CD with the laptop so I installed XP on the laptop (initially it came with Vista). This installation was on a separate hard drive than what came initially with the laptop. Also, my monitor got broken so I had to replace it with one from an older HP laptop of mine.
Now the product had some problems, but ran with XP fine. There were problems with my video card since the drivers I needed to install were integrated with Vista.
Now, I finally reinstalled Vista on the laptop. Everything is almost back to normal... except I have one BIG problem. My device control reads that I have a "standard vga video adapter" for my video card. This is entirely false as I have an Nvideo card.
I have tried installing drivers from Acer's website but to no avail. I have gotten the error message :"Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware"
i just recently bought this laptop and was first satisfied with it's features.
But then.... 64MB of system video memory?
Come on Acer. And so I was thinking if I could add some graphics like buying a decent video card for it.
I heard that video cards for laptops are in PCI express.
Can my Acer use it?
IF and only IF this Acer Aspire doesn't have the ability to use a new video card, is there any other way I could improve its graphics like getting some of the built-in shared memory and putting it in the video?
Just bought one of these ACER ASPIRE 7720G laptop's from ebay afew days back. It comes with the Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS, but i'm wondering if it's possible to upgrade this card with something that packs more of a punch.
If it is possible, what would be the ideal card for this setup?
The processor is the Intelģ C2D T7300 Processor, 2 gb ram, 250gh hd space.
I was able to resurrect it several times. Don't know how but it would work for a while then crash again. The card was a 9600M GS DDR2 and the laptop model was an Acer Aspire 6930G. Judging by the picture below of my start up screen. Would you say it's directly related to the video card? The windows noise would play with that screen but recently, it doesn't even play the noise anymore.
I'm working on this Acer Aspire AS7520-5311 laptop, on Vista 32, with a NVIDIA GeForce 8400M. Trying to tweak some graphic settings last night somehow I guess I deleted the video drivers for the nvidia card. I went into the device manager and deleted all of the display drivers. When it rebooted it tried to install it again. For some odd reason, it installed a "Standard VGA adaptor". So my desktop resolution is back to the former settings but any remotely graphic demanding programs will not run. I've went to Acer's website and nvidias website and cannot find the exact NVIDIA GeForce 8400M driver. I've tried everything listed under the model number on acer's website and it will install, reboot, but when comes back up. It still only shows the same standard vga adaptor.
This did not come with a restore disk for some odd reason!
Now before I just blame Vista, transfer all of my data, erase it, and then put XP on it.
I'm sure If I could somehow find the correct driver for the video card it would help.
I currently have a: Acer Aspire E ¬† Model Name: Aspire E5-511-P2D6Part Number: NX.MNYAA.002 ¬† Windows 8.1Intel Pentium N3530 Quad-core (4 Core) 2.16 GHz15.6" HD (1366 x 768) 16:9Intel HD Graphics with Shared Memory8 GB, DDR3L SDRAM1 TB HDD ¬† Is there a way that i can change my video card memory. It says im using 32MB but my maximum is 1792MB. How to I make it run at 1792MB?
I just want to know if my laptop video card is upgradable? I have the 4745G core i3 330M with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 514 VRAM. I want to know if it is possible to upgrade it to 1Gb or 2Gb any brand of video card.
Acer Ferrari 3400 ATI radeon 9700 mobility 2 gigs of ram Dual boot with Win XP pro and Ubuntu 7.04 feisty fawn Newest BIOS and software updates from Acer homepage
Few days ago I started having a problem with my Acer Ferrari 3400 laptop. It all started one morning when i tried to boot my computer.
I booted with ubuntu 7.04 feisty fawn and right after the operating system loaded the X graphical interface, the screen went black and the computer freezed.
I rebooted and tried again with Windows XP (I use a dual boot with Win XP and Ubuntu), and this time I got as far as the Windows loading screen. Then the loading screen turned black and the computer just rebooted itself.
I turned off the windows "auto-rebooting in case of error"-option and tried to boot with Win XP again.
This time I got a "blue screen of death (BSOD)" right after the Win XP loading screen. The BSOD indicated a problem with ati2dvag.dll and said that the "device driver got stuck in an infinite loop". Also the technical information said: ** STOP: 0x000000EA (0x8A56C218, 0x8A5BDAD8, 0xBACDFCB4, 0x00000001).
The numbers in parenthesis are always bit different each time i try to boot.
I googled the error and it seems this kind of a error message is very generic and could be the result of nearly anything ranging from software problems to hardware malfunction.
So this is what I have tried to do so far: - I booted Win XP with VGA mode -> Windows booted normally, but as I try to increase resolution the same BSOD appears and I have to reboot.
-I uninstalled all ATI video drivers from Win XP and windows booted normally. Of course, without video drivers, the performance of Windows was very sloppy. But it worked with higher resolutions.
- I installed the newest Omega Drivers for the vid card. Windows booted normally, but still had sloppy performance. I tried dxdiag and it showed that DirectDraw&Direct3D acceleration are unavailable. It also showed that video card memory was n/a. Win XP worked with high resolutions.
- I tried to boot Ubuntu linux with a generic vesa driver and it booted normally. Changed back to radeon drivers and it didn't work.
- I ran the Memtest 21 times and got no memory based errors
- I cleaned Win XP radeon drivers with DriverCleaner and tried a fresh install of radeon drivers. Didn't work.
- Finally, I did a Win XP recovery (reinstall) with the CD:s that came with the computer. The result: same error as before and now I can't even enter the VGA mode because the windows tries to raise the resolution right before entering the desktop -> BSOD
I am trying to disable integrated video card,because¬†it eat my ram. In BIOS (Inshyde) didn't enabled advenced menu On offical Acer site don't uploaded drivers for Windows 7 x64 and BIOS image (( Supports don't answer, just send me respond to email about¬†acceptance¬†my post.
I own this model since May 2013, and all this time I have this problem: ¬† In my drivers list the NVidia GeForce Mobile sometimes is present and most of the time not.
When it suddenly appears it will stay for a few days or weeks and I can play all the modern games happily. But then something will happen computer will reboot and the driver is no longer in the list, and for month until it will appear suddenly again. ¬† This already happened about 5 times. Unfortunately I cannot go to the repair because I bought this device in Taiwan and now I am in rural Russia. ¬† I suppose it might be a microcrack in the PCB or maybe a bad sensor or a bad cable, who knows. This is definitlely not a driver or software issue. Or is it? ¬† This device is very good, but without GeForce it looses about 25% of it's value.
if the Nvidia 130M can be upgraded? I love everything about the HDX 18 but the video card... running games like crysis is not what I hoped it to be. Was wondering if any high tech users know anything about upgrading the video card on this bad boy?
took my 1730 apart to blow out the dust and quiet a noisy vid card fan. Upon re-assembly, I used a long screw instead of a short when securing the monitor back to the body of the laptop.
That screw pierced a resistor and killed my video card... POOR design Dell + idiot move me= dead 1730. The short of it is, I need someone who has had their 1730 apart to tell me the value of the resistor R12, which is under the rubber flap below the left lid support screw.
(UPDATE) I purchased a new card..I know, I know, but I had to as I had projects that I needed access too. I would still like to fix this card though.
The R12 resistor is a micro resistor with "2A2" printed on top of it.. Anyone have any idea where I can get one of these? I thought at first it was 202 but under the magnifying glass I am pretty sure its "2A2".
Both m8800gtx have an error code 43 in hardware device manager (vista32). Well, here is what is going on. I have an m1730 that has been working A1 since I got until yesterday when I installed CoD:WaW.
It might be just a coincidence though because the game was playing good for a while until I got kicked out of the game and when I tried to launch the game again it said I had a DirectX corruption. So I took a look at directx diag and saw no problem, except for video card info showed nothing!
This is where I decided to look in hardware manager and saw the dreaded exclamation point (error 43) for both my cards. I did a full video driver uninstall, then did a driversweeper and took out all nvidia stuff and tried to install my drivers again and still get the same error!
Are my video cards messed up? I will be attempting a clean install on another spare drive today to see if it really a driver/software conflict.
My wife and I have a couple of Latitude 600m's both seemingly with Radion 9000 video cards.
Her HD has been on the fritz, and my mother board seems to have been on the fritz recently (not powering on), and seems to have finally died, so I put my HD in her machine and everything - except - the video seems to be working properly.
Basically the only two display options I have under the video properties are 1024x768 and 800x600... whereas in the HD's native machine, I can go considerably wider.
about a year ago my e1705's video card memory had a error and I had colored stripes on the screen. I researched a little and found that I could upgrade my card to a xps 512mb card and so I did. Now a few days ago my screen went black and I freaked out thinking my video card died but a few seconds later everything was fine again. Today, the same thing happened although this time the black screen turned to a blue error screen saying "***Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity check/ memory parity error ***The system has haulted***" I ran the diagnostic and the graphics card memory is showing errors. I checked ebay and another card is $300. What options do I have? I like my laptop but I'm kind of tired of this problem especially if I buy another card and expect it to happen again.
Id thought Id be nice and try to put together lots of GPUZ charts for those wondering about video cards, when compared to one another. I asked a few members to set their OC'd monsters to stock speeds so we could look at them in their original settings.
