I have windows 7 Inspiron 1545 that keeps going to a black screen, recovering, and then saying "Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers for Windows Vista(R) stopped responding and has fully recovered." But I do not have vista. Do I need to update?
I have Dell Latitude D820 with NVidia Quadro NVS 120M, but its causing failures, probably NVIDIA GPU. There are vertical straight lines on the screen, sometimes it won't boot at all, sometimes it would go dark screen and never start... etc Its been approximately 2 years since Ive had it.
Im planning on buying Dell latitude E6500.
I have the following questions:
1) Most people's reviews about E6500 are very disappointing, is it really true that E6500 is worse than the D820 or D series laptops in terms of build quality and hardware failure problems?
2) Considering Im having trouble with the NVidia GOU (probably) and that some people have witnessed GPU failures in Apple Macbook Pro (which uses 9400M and 9600M GPUs) and E6500 uses 160M (9300M GPU), so its a 9-series GPUs failing. Should I consider having Quadro NVS 160M in E6500 or I should avoid it and get Intel's Graphics card for now?
3) How much performance affect is there if comparing NVS 160 M with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD ? regarding the basic 3D simulations, such as using Macromedia Director or Studio Max, or games? I mean to ask, is Quadro NVS 160M really worth it?
Purolator left me a message saying my Dell laptop will arrive tomorrow morning. Ordered the Inspiron 13 on Sep 10th. Would I be able to run Counter Strike Source on high with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100? I was able to run Fallout 3 on medium with GeForce 9500M GS. How does Intel X3100 compare to NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS?
I don't play any computer games. Had Fallout 3 for PC when my Xbox 360 broke again. I'm not going to play any games with this new Inspiron 13, but still just wondering. I have a 16" Acer right now, I wanted a smaller laptop to carry around and faster CPU. I hope the T8300 does its job.
wen i bought my studio 15 i go the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD for my gpu cuz i dont do any serious gaming... anyways i play this korean fps game and looked at the requirements and thought i would be ok, but i cant run it.
the system requirements for the game is pentium 3-800 mhz for cpu, for the graphics its atleast 32 mb, and the ram is 256mb. i mean my like 5+ year old desktop ran it and how come my studio 15 cant run it. i d/l and wat ur suppose to do is log in at the web browser at ie, then click the server and loads the game.
after it loads and its about to enter it, the screen just turns black, and stays there.
I just bought an Acer-Notebook with the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator x3100.
I did not buy the notebook for playing games, but sometimes I just want to play. First it is all fine with World of Warcraft. Low FPS at all, but everything normal.
But when I am trying to run Warcraft with the notebook I get bluescreens. I know this have been discussed several times yet, but I can't get it running with the given hints.
First I did: -opengl on shortcut (Bluescreen)
-swtnl on shortcut (Bluescreen)
Then I tried several drivers to run. The latest and some older drivers from the official Intel page.
Another hint is to install drivers of the version 14.33 or older. But I can't find anything like this. The links posted in some posts i found here didnt work and in the archieves of the Intel page are just newer drivers.
I have an Inspiron 1545 which was on Vista but I have just installed Windows 8. Pretty well everything works fine but my grandson purchased Minecraft to run on the 1545 but when it starts it immediate crashes saying the graphics drivers are incompatible. I have tried all sorts of driver update sites including Dell but simply go round in circles.
I have an InspironR Special Edition 7520 and my AMD 7760 2GB will not activate or do any graphics processing. It is stuck on the Intel Graphics. I am running windows 8.
-My laptop is set on high performance and is plugged in.
-I ran NovaBench and it used the intel graphics card
-FurMark detected Intelgraphics as my main graphics card
-I ran a small game called "Slender: The Arrival" on the lowest settings it could barely handle it
-During the game and the graphics run I had Catalyst Control Center Up and it showed 0% usage of the graphics card, indicating it failed to switch
- All the drivers are up to date, per the windows solution and from downloading them from the AMD website.
I would like a solution to either, have the switch start working, or to change a setting so only the graphics card is constantly used. If this does not work I fear I'll have to return the laptop for faulty hardware.
I just received a refurbished Inspiron 17R SE with the HD and SSD pre-installed. I want to use the Intel Smart Response feature to speed up the hard disk with my SSD. When I open the Intel Rapid Storage utility I see no accelerator button. How do I enable this feature?
I have the BIOS SATA type set to Smart Response. It arrived with that setting. I don't know of any other setting that could affect this.
I own a Dell 7520 and it has four 3.0 usb ports. However, I have discovered that one program I use does not support Intel 3.0 USB ports only USB 2.0 ports. So the only port that program will use is the Realtek USB card reader on the 7520 because that is a native 2.0 port.
According to a poster Innogen on the Intel support forum "The BIOS in my Dell Inspiron 7520 allows me to disable it so that the USB 3.0 ports revert to USB 2.0 functionality." but I can't find any such functionality in my BIOS (using version A06).
I tried uninstalling the Intel USB 3.0 drivers in WIn 7 Ultimate hoping that when I rebooted it would install USB 2.0 drivers but it simply reinstalled the USB 3.0 drivers.
I would really like to get this program working on my computer and while I am not happy about losing USB 3.0 functionality I can live with it until the vendor gets its act together and starts to support Intel USB 3.0.
So I recently bought a laptop (Dell Inspiron 5520) with AMD Radeon 7670m HD graphics cards. However, the laptop came with another graphics cards too which is I suppose called an integrated graphics card. It's name is Intel HD 4000. So basically I was on a site which told me whether my computer could run a specific game or not. I passed everything like processor speed etc. but the graphics card. It said I use Intel 4000. I checked from some other applications and those also told me that I was using Intel 4000. I want to know whether I use both graphics cards or just Intel 4000 and if that is the case how I can switch manually from Intel to AMD Radeon graphics card.
I bought a manufacturer refurbished Inspiron 5720, i7 3612QM, 8GB RAM. The BIOS is currently A12. When I received it, it had a bad hard drive. Dell sent me a new hard drive under warranty, but it was blank and I had to use a recover CD to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I have installed every recommended and updated driver for all of my hardware components. But, everytime I install the HD 4000 drivers, the system starts to freeze up.
The system runs fine with the Standard VGA driver, but I can't run anything that requires better graphics. I have tried installing every version and they all cause the system to freeze. Sometimes it freezes during the boot up and sometimes it will run for up to 2 minutes before freezing. And by freezing, I mean that it just stops working. Sometime if I let it just sit and wait, it will shut off automatically. Other times, it just stays frozen for hours and I have to hold down the Power button to turn it off. When it restarts, it boots to the Safe Mode option screen. I then have to boot to safe mode and restore the system to a previous recovery state.
After updating to the latest video drivers from the ThinkVantage Update Retriever, our Lync clients crash when sharing desktop on our T440P series and X240 series. I noticed when I uninstall the video driver I am able to screen share without incident. Also, if I update the driver from Windows Update I am able to share successfully. We use the update retriever and thininstaller to install our drivers in our environment. I have tried uninstalling the Lync updates all the way down to the base version and experience the same issue at every level. It crashes 100% of the time when sharing desktop. I have tested it on T440p machines in our environment that do not have the latest display driver, and no crashes occurred. Here are the specifics:
Thinkpad X240 [20AL] Thinkpad T440p [20AN] ThinkVantage Update Retriever 5.00.0007 Thinkvantage Thin Installer 1.2.0010 Intel HD Graphics Driver - gid634ww (10.18.10.3412) Microsoft Lync 2013 SP1 32 Bit (15.0.4569.1503)
In my dell latitude d500,i am having intel 82852 graphics card and when i see report tab says me Maximum graphics memory is 64mb but memory in use only 5 or 7mb.Can someone help me to solve this problem because i can't play Counter-Strike on steam which is a game that released in 2000.
I believe that graphics memory in use is the problem that i can't play this game without having 60fps(i am having 15-30).
I am looking for an office laptop.. want E6400.. but, I don't want to go w/ nvidia video due to lot of heat and fan issues. Only reason I wanted to go w/ nvidia is their DIGITAL Vibrance... I LOVE IT!! Make the colors very rich and bright and I cannot live w/ it.
Does Intel video card have something close? My old laptop had Intel video and it is very junk, it had blue tint to entire screen.
I'm planning on making the switch to a Mac but I don't need a new notebook till Q3 09/Q1 2010. I know the next major hardware refresh is coming soon and I want a Macbook to last through uni but I don't know Apples sales strategies.
My main concern is the integrated graphics that the MB may come with when it is refreshed. What I wanted to ask is if anyone knows the likelihood that Apple will drop NVIDIA and go back to Intel.
Because if that was to be the case, I might as well buy one now (or once SL is released) because i'd rather have a Centrino 2 based MB w/ NVIDIAs iGPU then go back to Intel (harsh, i know... but it's the truth). Even with all the benefits the Calpella chipset/Westmere CPU would bring i.e. USB 3.0, SATA-III, Bluetooth 3.0, native SSD support, removal of FSB, integrated memory controller, DDR3-1600, improved wireless tech (w/ finalized 802.11n spec), lower power consumption, 32nm Nehalem.
Man I wish Apple would stick with NVIDIA for their next platform. NVIDIA has greater compatibility than anyone else and I know for a fact that the integrated graphics that will come with Arrandale are just a higher clocked 4500MHD so it will still be a lot weaker then even todays Macbook offering (9400m) which is like taking two steps back. Would be frickin AWESOME if we could get Calpella with a variant of Arrandale without its integrated graphics core. Instead, couple it with a 40/32nm shrink of the current 9400m based on the G300 architecture.............
My 2013 Inspiron tended to come out of hibernation either quite slowly , taking 20 to 30 seconds to get to the log-in screen, or crash altogether (not every time, but every 2 or 3 wake-ups) which required a hardware reboot.. After doing some research, I found some information. It appears there may be some conflict between BIOS settings and Windows (8.1 in my case).
I checked BIOS settings and the only thing I found was that Intel's Rapid Start Technology was enabled. So I turned it off and rebooted. Turns out, the Rapid Start actually delayed the boot process: my computer boots MUCH faster now (about half the time from before) in the full boot process, it comes out of hibernation almost instantaneously (as I would expect from a system with i7 processor, 16 GB Ram and SSD) and it has not yet crashed when coming out hibernation.
I've had my inspiron 14z for about 2 months now. From the start I've had issues with the computer crashing (blue screen). It started happening about every hour, and has now increased to about every 20 minutes. If left it will be on an- on- crash- restart loop for eternity every 20 minutes. I have tried updating drivers, I have done diagnostics at startup, not working.
I have a Dell E6400. The OS has been uprgraded to Windows 7 - 64 bit by an authorized Microsoft refurbish dealer. The driver stops randomly. Using the internet, Office, version 2010. is there a better driver?
I am a newbie to graphics. When I bought my laptop I was told that it has inbuilt intel hd graphics 4000. So when I checked the device manager there was no such driver or device. Is this because it is inbuilt in the processor or have I missed installing any driver.
I recently purchased a Lenovo ... so I was trying to get some games running on my big screen with my lenovo y50 laptop which I should have set to always use the 860m dedicated card. But when I'm running a second display it defaults to using the Intel 4600 chip, obviously not great for running games. I've tried looking every where in the Nvidia control panel and Intels control panel but can't find anything to fix this issue. That HDMI port is the only display port on the laptop as well.
