Acer :: 1712SMi Video Card
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,

Acer :: 5920 Video Card Replace
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.
Acer :: 5920 - Video Card Not Recognized
I have an Acer 5920 laptop. for specs : [url]
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"
Acer :: Video Card On My Extensa 5420
I just got an acer extensa 5420 yesterday.
Graphics are supposedly at radeon HD 2400 XT, with 256megs of dedicated vram and the option to use regular ram as hypermemory.
My problem is, whats the deal with the clock speeds?
This screen shot should explain everything....Clock speeds are half of what they should be.
Acer :: Aspire 4736z Video Card Upgrade/add
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?
Acer :: Can You Upgrade Video Card Of ASPIRE 7720G
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 Intel® C2D T7300 Processor, 2 gb ram, 250gh hd space.
Acer :: Is My Video Card Or Anotehr Part Of My Laptop Fried
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.
Acer :: Video Card No Longer Detected Or Installing Drivers
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.
Acer :: ATI Mobility Driver For The HD 2400XT Video Card (TM 6592)
Where do I find a mobility driver for my Acer TravelMate 6592 with a HD 2400XT video card?
The one on Acers site is acting weird.
I get no additional tabs under Display Properties -> Settings -> Advanced.
(so no way to manage tv out, powerplay or things like that)
Starting the ATI Catalyst Control Center only give me a chance to change resolution.
some desktop settings which are grayed out and nothing else.
It looks like some kind of initial settings/wizzard or so, but I can't get past this.
I can find no Mobility driver for the HD 2400XT card on ATI's own site.
Newest mobility driver (direct link) won't install, as the hardware isn't supported.
Acer :: Ferrari 3400 Video Card (ATI Radeon 9700 Mobility)
here are the specs of my Acer Ferrari 3400:
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
HP/Compaq :: HDX 18 Video Card
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?
Dell :: XPS Video Card Death
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".
Dell :: XPS M1730 Video Card
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.
Dell :: Help With Video Card Problem
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.
Dell :: E1705 Video Card
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.

Dell :: Xps M170 Bad Video Card
i recently purchased a dell xps m170 and i noticed the screen wasnt as crisp as i expected.
so i put the dell resource cd to install a video driver and when i started the driver install the screen went black and that was it the comp was still turned on but nothing on the screen. when first booting up i notice vertical lines during the dell screen and windows screen.
i went to the device manager and uninstalled the nvidia driver and rebooted, everything worked fine i was able to go on youtube and see a video, but when i scroll down it seems the screen is lagging i dont have a better way to describe it. i downloaded the driver for the video card from dell and installed it and immediately the screen went black
Dell :: Video Card Swap..
First off, hope everyone is having a great time during the holidays and lets not forget our fellow soldiers still deployed.
So I received my replacement on the 21st with T9800 but they are sending me another replacement with the QX9300 processor.
Scenario, lets say they decide to give me the 260's SLI instead of the 280's SLI (which is what they gave me in this replacement and this is dellienware)...
Could I take the 280's in here and put them in the 2nd replacement, obviously put the the 260's in here and return it like that?
So in short, I want to take these 280s out and put them in the new replacement. Take those 260s out and put them in this one and send it back to dell.
Any input would be great
Dell :: You CAN Upgrade Your Video Card
According to a Dell Rep at least.. This is mostly for the people who have the SXPS 16 with the 3670. I was speaking with a dell rep today and she told me that if I were to buy a 4670 and called tech support.
I could ask for their help to install the video card without voiding warranty. I don't know if this is true..
but does anyone know where to get a 4670 besides Dell's site where it's $109
Dell :: Refurbished Video Card For M90
My M90 is out of warranty and I need to buy a video card. Don't want to spend $700+ on a new one so I was looking at the refurbished.
The question is, how reliable are they, and if anyone has use one before. I found some on ebay for $250, witch is ok. Also found one that the seller claims is:

Dell :: Upgrading Video Card
My E1705 originally came with the X1400. I upgraded the card to a 7900GS I purchased from a member here.
Well - It's time again to clean the HSF. I figured while I was at it, why not upgrade video card.
With my system still under warranty, I contacted Dell chat and stated that my X1400 was running very hot and artifacting (which it was before I switched to the 7900GS). They said that my video card was working too hard and I should upgrade - but also offered to send a replacement X1400.
The Tech stated that I should contact customer service and see if they would discount an upgraded card (subtract the price of the x1400 from a 512 card). He said I shouldn't have a problem.
1. Has anyone had any success with this?
2. Which card should I get?
Dell :: Is My Video Card Dead?
My laptop hasn't worked for about a month now and I'm at the end of my rope!
I used it fine in the morning before I went to work, shut it down properly, but then couldn't get the screen or LCD panel above the keyboard to even light up, let alone work when I got home that night.
At first I thought it was just the screen, except that an external monitor doesn't work and the LCD panel is gone as well, which worries me.
When I did all the "function + power" tests the screen lit up but unfortunately instead of displaying the wavey colours I just got a sort of creamy white on it and the LCD panel still did nothing. The audio tests worked fine and scared the hell out of me .....
Dell :: XPS M170 Video Card
Basically the video card went out in my dell xps m170 a while ago, bugger was still under warrenty but they said there was a "spill" in it so they wouldn't replace it... fyi it wasn't a spill got a second opinion and a layer of nicotine formed over the video card couple with some pet hair that got in there it caused it to over heat and fry out. but alas my warrenty is screwed. (also i was runnin linux and they said it was "irregular" buggers)
anywho i want my laptop back up and runnin, its a thousand times better then this toshiba satellite a105 with a broken keyboard but the video card Nvidia go 6800 is like 300 bucks.
I was talkin to my girlfriends brother who works at a computer shop and he suggested a different compatible video card.
a Dell inspiron 9400 which has a ATI mobility X1400.
is this compatible with my dell xps m170, he said it looks like it would fit in there and the only major difference is there is one heat sink instead of two. (its not quite as powerful plus side-- better battery life. i do some gaming like world of warccraft and the ati 1400 seems like it would be good enough for that).
I've built numerous desktops but i've never personally worked on a laptop internally before. I do know the xps m170 was made a little different then some laptops in that nothings integrated and its upgradeable (hell has a guide how to take it apart that it came with.)
Dell :: M1710 Bad Video Card

Dell :: XPS M1710 Video Card Options
I was going to repair my Inspiron 8600 but now I have a chance to get my hands on an XPS M1710 with what is believed to be the same fried video card everyone is experiencing with it...what would my options be for repairing this computer if it is simply the video card needing to be replaced?
I can find the stock replacements through Dell and eBay, but I'm curious if there are other alternatives out there?
if the hard drive from my Inspiron 8600 would be compatible?
Dell :: M170 Video Card Has Crashed
so i have reformatted it at least 5 times in the last 36 hours, i finally have it working enough to write this HELP request.
as i have never experienced a video card crash on a laptop, what do i do now? is there a way that i can bypass the video card? instal a diferent set of drivers? at the moment i have all the other drivers installed minus the video drivers. last time i installed the video dricers the machine siezed up.
or can i simple take out the video card altogether?
Dell :: Dead Video Card - E1705
Alright, as you can see in my sig, I am the "lucky" owner of a GeForce 7800. I bought my E1705 RIGHT before the Core Duo 2 and 7900 GS wave, but I haven't had any real problems (besides the annoying overheating of the 7800, never caused a crash, just low FPS sometimes during gaming).
Well I went to check my laptop this morning, and after the Windows loading screen (during the Welcome screen) it would glitch and get all scrambled, then jam up.
So I went into safe mode, un-installed all the video drivers, rebooted and it worked fine. Went and downloaded the newest drivers possible from the Official Dell site just to make sure I wasn't using faulty drivers.
But halfway through the install the screen would glitch and what not, I had to go back into safe mode and uninstall the drivers again and it worked fine.
This laptop has no warranty or anything, so if it truly is that the video card finally died I guess my only option is to buy a 7900 GS or GTX?
Just looking for some opinions (I'd hate to buy a card and find out it was some other problem with the laptop, even though I'm not a fan of this 7800 ) to make sure this truly is a video card problem, and to see if anyone knows where I might find a GS/GTX for decent prices.
Dell :: The M1710 Video Card Ride Down
I've joined the legion of M1710 users that have had their video card crap out on them. Typical green lines and bars results in chat to XPS support to have 7900GS replaced. That lasted ~ 2 weeks. Dust cleaned out every month, on a cooler pad,etc. Screen goes black suddenly (not screen saver) and a reboot leads to green lines again. Another chat/phone call to Dell results in replacement motherboard AND 7950 GTX. Nice upgrade. So, how long should I expect this card to last? I've had no other issues and really do my best to keep everything clean and cool. And when this card goes (they all seem too?).... I should mention that I received the M1710 as a replacement for a E1705 that overheated, had parts replaced, and then needed to go to the depot to be "fixed," only to return un-repaired and with the wires to the wireless antenna cut inside the case.
Dell :: Video Card FlickerVIDEOS INCLUDED
Here are the videos. They are god-awful small and blurry, BUT you can still clearly see the distortion. I'm also using a unregistered version of a cropping software to make the files small enough to upload to yourfilehost.com, so there are banners on them. They are also pretty darn short snippets (1 or 2 seconds each... I need to lrn2compress)
This is me flying towards a red carpet in Shatt. Zoomed in on the carpet.
A building flickering at range in Battlefield 2142.
The waterline and metal textures of a boat flickering in SH4.
The flicker I experience between character selections on the WoW Character Selection screen. It is a brief frame between each character.
Another boat from SH4, showing the flicker disappear as I zoom closer.
All of these flickers, with the exception of the character screen flicker, disappear if I get close to the texture, which is why I HIGHLY suspect some problem with the z-buffer. Still, I am at a loss as to how to solve it.
I run Warcraft at 1920x1200 resolution, and the other two at 1600x1200 resolution.
Dell :: Puerto Rican XPS, Video Card
I decided to buy an xps from here . Its great for what it does, and it has everything I need . However Even witheverything, there is one thing that I don't like, which I would like to upgrade, and its the video card which is the - ATI Mobility RADEON® HD 3670 - 512MB
1. Is it as good as an nvdia 9800 ?
2. Is it possible to upgrade it ? I am thinking of buying the video card off somewhere else if that is even possible . Possibly a 1gb one .
Dell :: Video Card Crash (not Sure How To Describe This)
My XPS M1710 crashed (BSOD'ed) while playing a game and now I get fuzzy lines all over the screen as seen here. Not sure what happened but I'm guessing that the video card is gone.
I'm saying that as even on startup (bios screen) the fuzzy lines appear even though Windows hasn't loaded. On the other hand safe mode seems to work fine (I'm using safe mode to type this currently).
Running Windows 7 btw. Could it be any other problem (do I need to provide any other info)? Not really looking forward to replacing a video card - or buying a new laptop for that matter.
Edit: Not sure if that image describes my problem, maybe I need to take it with my mobile phone?
