Acer :: Video Card No Longer Detected Or Installing Drivers

Apr 13, 2009

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.

Apple :: MBP No Detected Video Card In Photoshop CS4

Jul 20, 2009

I've installed Photoshop CS4 11.0.1 on my Macbook Pro (15", 2.8Ghz, nVidia 9600M GT), but under Preferences>Performance, the GPU Settings section is greyed out with the message: "Graphics hardware acceleration is unavailable. You will need to upgrade your video driver and possibly your video card."

I have tried re-installing Photoshop, trashing preference files etc. But the problem still exists. I can't find anything on the web about the 9600M GT or the 9400M not being recognised by Phothop CS4, so what could be causing this?

Dell :: Installing Video Drivers Straight From Intel...Impossible

Dec 10, 2008

I periodically check Dell's site for updated video drivers but they are always sooo old. (Dell's driver-Version 7. something, Intel's-Version 11.something) Intel's site is much more up to date. Anyway, I'll download the Intel drivers and attempt to run the installer. It'll extract all the files but then close and show a message stating that the driver isn't "validated" to run on this computer and that I must get driver updates from my pc maker.

Why are others able to install the drivers, even on other Dell systems? Is it a business notebook thing due to the need for stable system images?

Acer :: Ethernet Card Not Detected

Sep 25, 2008

My laptop doesn't detect my ethernet card, so when I plug a cable in, only the yellow light at the top left of the port flashes, whereas the green light at the top right of the port does not light up. I get no signal at all. In Network Connections it shows that I only have a Wireless Connection and not LAN. Device Manager shows 3 Unknown Devices, however when I downloaded my Atheros driver from Acer's website the driver said that my hardware could not be found.

Lenovo Y580 P/Y/Z Series :: GTX 660M No Longer Detected?

Feb 19, 2014

I've been using my Y580 for a little more than a year now and I absolutely loved it. Recently though, my graphics card has completely dissappeared. This happened after playing an hour or so of Titanfall (which ran really well) and attempting to update my nvidia drivers. I was not able to update the installation using both Geforce Experience and manually. While downloading manually, I noticed that their website was not able to detect my graphics card. I then checked the device manager and all I could see was the Intel card. Later on, the Nvidia control panel was also unable to detect the card. 
 
I decided to uninstall all my drivers and start again with the one on the Lenovo driver page. I was able to successfully download the driver and it made the 660 appear in the device manager. This did not solve my troubles because when I tried to play a game, the 660 dissapeared again. I then looked through the BIOS and I was also unable to find the card. Frustrated, I did a system restore to before I first downloaded the driver. Once again, the 660M briefly appeared again but dissapeared when I tried to game or update it.

Acer :: Installing Windows 7 On An 6920G - Drivers, Experience Etc

Jan 24, 2010

Well my PC came OEM installed with Vista 32 Bit edition and I would like to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit edition (as i get a student discount).

Looking around the forums and internet in general, I have noticed that on the acer 6920g there seems to always be a problem with drivers such as the CineDash, Realtek, TV tuner, Modem, Card reader, Fingerprint, Webcam, Bluetooth etc.. I have also read that you can fix the launchmanager by running in Vista compatiability mode.

If i do an in-place upgrade (going from vista 32-bit to windows 7 ultimate) will it be fine? Also is there anything I should be cautionous of such as the drivers etc..

I would actually really like to do a clean installation but I'm worried that the keyboard "quick" buttons (such as the internet,bluetooth,mail on the side of keyboard will not work)- can someone please confirm if I did a clean installation, would theese buttons still work?

Also I have two games:GTA IV, Call of Duty 5 , will theese both work on windows 7 (or on compatability).

Acer :: 5920 Video Card Replace

Nov 18, 2008

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

Oct 6, 2008

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"

Dell :: HDMI No Longer Outputting Audio Or Video To TV

May 28, 2009

I've been using my 1737 to playback movies and downloaded TV shows to my HDTV via the HDMI socket for ages and its worked wonderfully. Suddenly the other day it stopped working and I no longer get an image on screen or sound.

I've got the latest drivers for my (intel) graphics card and the laptop detects 'something' is plugged in as a second monitor (windows 7 even detects its a Toshiba TV, but still no output on screen) so I assume it it working to some degree.

Acer :: Aspire 4736z Video Card Upgrade/add

Oct 1, 2009

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 :: Is My Video Card Or Anotehr Part Of My Laptop Fried

Jul 30, 2009

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 :: ATI Mobility Driver For The HD 2400XT Video Card (TM 6592)

Jan 1, 2008

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.
