Dell :: Can I Disable Nvidia Card And Use Onboard Video

Jan 6, 2010

My laptop is Vostro 1500 with 8600M GT

I'm experiencing some weird flashes, driver stops working and recovered, random distorting dots etc recently. I'm 99% sure its the video card's problem. Luckily the display card can be exchanged. But before going ahead to change it I wanna ensure its video's fault. So I wonder theres any way I can turn off the NVIDIA 8600M GT ,use the intel graphic instead, and see if I still get any of those problems.

I don't seem to find any option in BIOS letting me to do so.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Possible To Disable Intel Card Completely And Use NVIDIA Directly Through BIOS?

Jan 25, 2015

if it's possible to disable the Intel card completely and use NVIDIA directly through BIOS?

I'm trying to use Nvidia Nsight to debug shaders in OpenGL but Optimus/Switchable Graphics make things difficult for Nsight.At his point BIOS has just UMA and Switchable Graphics as options.But I've seen other laptops with a discrete graphics option.Is this model hardcoded to go through the Intel card anyway?Is there some other BIOS version that can add the option?

Dell :: NVIDIA Quatro NVS 135M Video Card Crashes

Sep 30, 2009

I use a Latitude D630 with an NVIDIA Quatro NVS 135M video card. I generally run my computer with dual screen support using an additional monitor.

Last week, I returned to my computer to find the image looking all scrambled, the resolution low, looking like it was in safe mode. It said there was a problem with the display driver and needed to restart.

I restarted, everything seemed to boot up normally, but as I would perform operations in Windows, the screen started to mess up and the machine would lose display or freeze completely (I still can't tell which it did).

After continually having to manually turn off and boot my machine, at one point at startup it mentioned that the volume on the C drive was dirty and needed to do some clean up. It took a few minutes, but then booted normally. I'm not sure what happened there .....

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Can't Detect Nvidia Gt 525m Video Card Anymore

Nov 10, 2012

I've recently accidentally dropped my n5110 ci5 laptop. It was a hard crash that the screen cracked. Later i had the screen replaced and checked that all hardware is working properly. Everything was fine except my laptop can no longer detect my NVIDIA Gt525m Graphic Card. I really need it for my advanced modeling and rendering purposes. What i know is that display is working and it's definitely using Intel HD Graphics 3000. I tried re-installing video drivers but the setup won't continue saying that it can't detect any compatible hardware.

Dell :: 9400 / E1705 Mobo Replacement With Onboard Video

Nov 30, 2009

My 7950GTX failed and all replacement cards I've seen on Ebay, from the X1400, 7900GS or better are overpriced.

Since I won't be gaming with my laptop anymore, I was thinking of replacing my motherboard with the one with integrated onboard video, which is more cost effective.

Do you know if it fits, meaning will my current LCD connector fits this motherboard ? Should I expect a bad surprise?

Dell :: Switching To Onboard Graphics Card

Apr 16, 2009

I have an dell m1710 xps and the graphics card has died (again). I know there is an onboard graphics card, and I am hoping/wondering if I can use that to transfer my files off the hard drive.

I thought maybe I should hook a monitor up to the machine, but then I don't know how to access the bios to set which card to use - as the screen is blank. I know there is a way but I cant figure it out.

Dell :: Dual Monitors On An E5500 With Onboard Graphics Card

Jun 19, 2009

For some reason I can't search or I would have done that first so I apologize if this has been beaten to death. I placed an order for a Latitude E5500 with 4G of memory and the 2.4g processor.

One question that I asked of the online chat people was if it would support a dual monitor set up with the onboard gpu (I didn't have an option for an upgrade on the 5500).

The first guy said no, my salesperson on the phone said yes, absolutely although unless I buy a dock one of the monitors would have to be my laptop lcd, and just to break the tie I asked another online sales person and he said absolutely not!

HP/Compaq :: Onboard Sound Card Not Detected:dv6736nr

Feb 15, 2010

all of a sudden my ONBOARD SOUND CARD is not detected.

all i see is an X mark on the speaker icon.

i cant really pinpoint the culprit but i do remembering doing the latest updates (this is a windows 7 ultimate system btw) and installing WINXP as a VM.

the SOUND BUTTON seems to be stuck. it just stays lit and i cant turn it off.

what i have done so far:

- tried to install vista drivers from hp.com, but obviously am unable to install it since its a win7 system. link to a win7 64 bit driver for a CONEXANT HIGH DEFINITION AUDIO 221.

- tried to do a system restore but fails.

- tried having win7 detect what the problem is and i come with a .reg file which supposedly contains the audio settings but i am unable to install it..

HP 13-p111 Nr X2 :: Does Onboard Card Reader Support SDXC Cards In One Or Both Slots

Jan 24, 2014

Does the onboard card reader in my my 13-p111 nr X2 notebook (Win 8.1) support SDXC cards in one or both slots (standard and micro)?  Win 8.1 supports the file system, but my 64GB micro sd card is not being recognized in the onboard slot, making me think that the card reader hardware may not support that format.  If the onboard reader does not , should the notebook still recognize a 64GB SDXC card in a USB card reader stick?  
 
I've looked in the service manual for this X2 notebook and it is not specific about SD 0r SDHC or SDXC support.  Where can I find detailed system specs for this machine?

Dell :: Switiching HD From 6400 With NVidia Card To Intel Card?

Sep 25, 2009

Just swapped out my e6400 with the nVidia 160M GC fro a 6400 with the Intel card (due to heat issues).

I tried just swapping the hard drives so that I wouldnt have to reinstall the OS.
Its not letting me start Windows.

I think the issue is that I dont have the drivers on my older HD for the new motherboard/GC.

Dell :: Xps Studio X16 And Nvidia Video

Sep 30, 2009

there are many out there that likes to dab in linux, unix, opensource, and usually those folks demand nvidia video, and will not even think twice about a rig unless the nvidia option is available..

ati video cards are very hard, if not impossible to configure with linux..i know, i have tried.....i just wonder who makes these decisions for dell, and if they even smart enough to realize this...

i went to dell laptop sales chat ,and asked them about the nvida choice -

1. don,t have info
2. might be a product shortage
3. design team made the ati decision
4. will pass along the info

the replys were what i expected....no idea

Dell :: 8400GS Or NVidia Video Driver

Jan 25, 2009

My Vostro 1510 laptop came with the latest 8400GS video card driver from Dell. Is it unwise to try the latest driver from nVidias site?

I've been reading that some drivers can run a little cooler. HWMonitor says my GPU normally runs at 60c, a little warm from what I'm reading.

Sony :: Repaired VAIO Nvidia Video

May 26, 2010

I have a VAIO SZ series laptop which got the typical video isue with Nvidia GPU (vertical lines). I was very disaponted from what I read and from the 750-1000 Euro repair cost that sony Greece (I live in Greece) offered me so I started looking for a motherboard on ebay. I was very lucky and surprised to find a company offering a repair service for my laptop located in Greece. I bought the service for 200Euro I packed the laptop and send them my pick up info.

Next day a courier picked up my laptop and 10 days later it was returned fully functional and they even solved the problem with the noisy fan! This happened one week ago and today they even refunded 50Euro of my payment because I am located in Greece and the offered price was calculated for shipping in EU! So it actually costed me only 150Euro in total!

Checing their listing I show that they are offering repair services for FZ series laptops for much less but they are asking to send them only half of the laptop. Anyway I prefer not to mention the company's name but if you check on ebay.co.uk for VAIO SZ video repair you should find them and maybe more proffesionals closer to you who could repair your laptop for a fruction of what sony is asking.

Dell :: XPS M1330 WITHOUT NVIDIA Card

Feb 15, 2009

wondering if people have still run into issues with the M1330 with just the Intel X3100 card (overheating, motherboard, etc)? I really liked the XPS due to its looks and portability and wanted to hear people's opinions on purchasing this product with some features (such as 4 GB RAM, 250/320 GB HD, X3100 card, standard display, Core 2 Duo T8100) as I pretty much just use it for Internet, word processing, music, and watching occasional movies...I'm really in it for the portability factor as I occasionally lug my laptop around and use it in class (being a graduate student), but not every single day.

Apple :: Video Artifacts In Unibody After Nvidia Update 10.5.7

May 13, 2009

I updated to 10.5.7 and it runs quite well however I noticed a flaw of video flashing and I wanted to confirm this with others. In Stacks I use the Applications folder in list view. I have a long list of applications so I always have to scroll to go through all of them. When I use two finger scrolling to zip through them I see flashes of video artifacts while two finger scrolling. This only happens when you have enough apps in list view to require scrolling to see them all. For example, with no windows open I click the Applications folder and begin rapidly two finger scrolling through list view and I can see artifacts of the desktop flashing within the list view box. Anyone else notice this after the update? I have already reformatted and installed nothing but my basic apps and still see this.

Apple mentioned that they updated the Nvidia drivers for the unibody Macs. I have a Macbook Air.

HP/Compaq :: DV4-1000EA Video Performance (256mb Nvidia 9200m GS)

Jan 11, 2009

Recently purchased DV4-1000ea as follows;

2.26Ghz P8400 Core2Duo
2GB RAM
250GB HDD
256MB Dedicated (1024MB Shared) NVidia 9200m GS.

I liked the idea of the laptop having a HDMI output to connect to my TV to watch movies etc downloaded on iTunes. I thought the graphics card was going to be ample given that my housemates Macbook with 32mb shared graphics works just fine.

However, I am really disappointed with the graphics performance playing High quality video, in particular, H264 Quicktime files.

For example, I have downloaded a few 720p trailers from the apple website and torrent sites and when playing, the videos are choppy in most scenes and speech is not in sync with video a lot of the time. This is true for display on the laptop screen, as well as display on TV via HDMI.

I have checked CPU usage whilst such clips are playing and it's running quite comfortably at 40-50%.

I have downloaded the latest NVidea drivers from the NVidia website (version 7928).

Also, even music video previews in itunes (and subsequent previews) are choppy and out of sync whilst playing. I have tried apples suggestions of turning off 3d accleleration for DirectX but it makes things worst.

Dell :: How Do I Get Warranty Service For My M1330 With A Bad Nvidia Card

Feb 24, 2009

My warranty on my computer expired in December and now my motherboard has fried for the second time. Every time I call dell they take my service tag and say how sorry they are but my warranty has expired. I try to explain to them that dell extended the warranty for all computers with the defective card for one more year and they reply by saying that it is not in the computer. They keep sending me to the out of warranty department.

Dell :: Buying An XPS 15 Laptop NVidia V. ATI Graphics Card

Mar 13, 2009

I am starting to research 15/-16" laptops and looking at the XPS - for my wife who is a photographer. She currently has an Inspiron 1720 but it's not performing for her so she wants to upgrade.

Plus she still has the PITA issue with Vista where her screen color calibrations are continually lost. I on the other hand have an Inspiron 1520 with an nVidia graphics card and once calibrated, my screen doesn't lose the settings.

So I wanted to get her a laptop with an nVidia card - but looking at the XPSs they all seem to have the ATI graphics card - only the old stock still has the nVidia cards.

Is the ATI comparable or better than the nVidia? Will it retain the calibration settings like the nVidia does? Is dell no longer bundlingg nVidia cards because of the problems I have read about (never had any myself).

HP/Compaq :: Video Performance :Pavilion Dv5t With NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS

Jan 30, 2009

Dv5t, the problem of having non-optimal /under par performance of Nvidia Graphics accelerator 9200/9600 used with Windows Vista.

I have done some troubleshooting myself, but yet to find a working solution.

My configuration is :

Pavilion Dv5t CTO Notebook.
15.4" diagonal WSXGA+ LCD.
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor P7350 (2.0GHz)
Current Running Resolution 1680 x 1050.
3GB system RAM.
NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS with 256 MB of RAM.
Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit.

The degraded performance I am talking about is not specifically for games and 3D applications. Nor is playing games and running 3D rendering my primary purpose. The various benchmarks and tests mentioned at this site maybe more directed towards running specific games and other applications............
