I bought a dv9000 about two years ago and recently the motherboard died. Since I'm not exactly rich at the moment I haven't bought a new laptop, but instead my father gave me his dv6286 because choose to upgrade.
But the geforce 7200 in the dv6268 isnít any good for gaming, so I though if it was possible to take my geforce 7600 from the dv9000 and put it in the dv6286.
I have HP Envy dv7-7212nr. It has Intel HD graphics 4000 which is shown in dxdiag and a GT 650M. ¬† I have VGA and also HDMI cables. ¬† How do I set it so that GT 650M is the main one and has it shown on dxdiag? Is that setup to be done in BIOS or can I do it on the desktop?
My Dell Vostro 1500 has been behaving strangely. I have a problem which occurs sometime when I start it up.
When booting, the monitor does not turn on and it does not complete the start up (I can tell by the hard disk not being read). However, if I press the area to the right of the "Power" button (above the keys F8-F12, Num lk, Print Scrn, etc), the monitor turns on and it proceeds to boot. However, when windows starts, it suddenly gives a blue screen and says "Hardware Malfunction". I have no option but to shut down. If I try running diagnostics, everything shows it is running fine. I can also run Windows "Safe Mode".
I figured that if I press the area to the right of the "Power" button WHILE turning on the computer, it starts up normally. After that, it gives me no trouble at all.
I thought I was fine, until another problem came up. This time, when I start up, the monitor shows up as a white screen, but it seems to boot normally. I can even shut down with Alt+F4. I can run diagnostics and all, but I only get a white screen. Sometimes, I get a combination of this and the above problem.
After this problem, I shook my computer a bit, and managed to get it to start normally. I haven't shut it down (or hibernated it) as yet.
Can anyone suggest what I can do with my computer? I am afraid the problem might get worse. Should I have a replacement for my video card or video RAM ready?
I have a Dell Vostro 1015 Laptop and the graphics card is not working for me. I know it has a built-in graphics card and there is nothing i can do about that but is there any type of external add-on type of thing for a graphics card ? For example, a supplementary graphics card that is plugged in through USB or another input.
its my dads laptop, a dell vostro 1540 just over a year old i believe and its running 7, in recent times it has been taking a good 10 mins (yesterday half an hour) to automatically connect to the internet, the router is downstairs and the laptop is used upstairs and its getting a signal of about 3-4 bars.
I've got a problem with setting the admin password on bios A02 at Vostro 1540. Machine just doesn't switch to "locked" mode, after reboot it goes straight to OS, like bios password never been set. Is it defective machine/firmware or maybe I've missed something?
I had to install a new hard drive into my above laptop, eventually i've gotten everything working except the above video card which allows me access to wireless networks. i can't get the internet at all on my pc so i'll need to be able to save down the drivers on to disk then install on pc. Where i'll find the drivers.
I'll be buying an XPS M1330 soon. The only option I'm still confused on is the graphics card. I'm not a gamer and battery life is important to me as I'm on the road every week for work. However, with Vista now - which I have no experience with - is it true that you need a discrete graphics card to efficiently run Vista (and I guess certain options such as Aero).
Specifically, my questions are:
1. Will an integrated graphics card impair the ability to use Vista in any way and, if so, how?
2. What's the difference in battery life when using a dedicated vs integrated graphics card? I.e., how much extra battery life will I gain by choosing integrated?
3. Will an integrated graphics card cause my system to just not operate as efficiently in general - just every day navigating even - since Vista relies so heavily on graphics? And, if so, how does any inefficiency manifest itself? Slower time bringing up screens? Computer running hot because of a strain using graphics?
You can't Change your Graphics card, is there any graphics card that i can use through the PCI express slot, or the the expansion port? the laptop is hp pavillion dv2000 (exactly: dv2132ea) since i don't want to go through the hassle of changing my laptop. I just need a better vga card
The one component of my Acer Aspire 5002LMi notebook that defies upgrade is the SiS M760GX integrated graphics. Otherwise, I've been very happy with the unit. Processor, hard drive and ram upgrades were easy. Is anyone aware of any tweeks that can be done to get the most out of this weak integrated graphics platform? Suggestions appreciated as I intend to keep the unit in service for a long time using XP Pro since the graphic won't handle Vista. Obviously, not a gaming machine but it will handle some older games.

I actually want the Intel Integrated graphics for the dv7t. This was offered a couple months ago but now the only options are for NVidia chips. Will the integrated graphics ever come back or are they gone for good?
Also, what happened to the regular edition dv5t? The special edition is nice and all, but I don't care about the fancy case. Are the new low-resolution 16:9 laptops taking over completely?
I have just recently purchased an HP 17-e049wm. This laptop has the AMD Radeon HD8650G integrated graphics with up to 4206MB of total memory. I understand that this graphics "card" uses the onboard memory to act as video memory. How can I increase or decrease the amount of memory allocated to the graphics? I don't seem to be able to make any changes from the BIOS. Is this something that adjusts automatically?
Acer Aspire 3830TG-6494 crashes while gaming. ¬† Crash symptoms:
-happens anywhere from within the first 15 minutes to several hours into a game (no link to graphic quality settings). No loss in performance leading up to the crash. ¬† -screen glitches and goes black, with a brief buzzing sound. Power remains on and fan is still running, forcing a hard reset.¬† ¬† -Occasionally the sceen will freeze, ~1cm horizontal green lines will appear all over and a loud buzzing sound is emitted from the speakers until a hard reset.¬† ¬† -Rarely I get a BSOD or the computer will shut down and restart itself. Resulting DMP files show no consistent suspected cause. ¬† -Crash will occasionally be preceded by certain in-game sounds cutting out. But not always. ¬† -The only link between crashes is that I'm usually thinking a solution worked right before the crash. (Frustrating!) ¬† -System will occasionally crash while ¬†watching videos or something, but only crashes consistently while gaming. ¬†¬† I have tried the following:¬†
-Running games using only the integrated graphics or nVidia GeForce GT 540M GPU. ¬† -Underclocking either the GPU(500MHz and 700MHz, from 672MHz and 900MHz), the CPU (seting max 70% power plan), and both simultaneously.¬† ¬† -Temperatures do not exceed 70C under heavy use, and crash does not seem to be linked to any temperature increases.¬† ¬† -Run both Windows 7 memory diagnostic and memtest86 (no problems found) ¬† -Run intel CPU diagnostics and intel XTU benchmark which did not cause a crash.¬† ¬† -Upgrading all drivers to latest versions, as well as rolling them back to the versions recommended on acer download website. (Completely uninstalling graphics drivers before re-installing different versions) And making sure windows update was not automatically installing driver updates. ¬† -upgrading BIOS to v1.12, it was stable for a weekend then went back to crashing. ¬† -The system seems to be more stable in power saver or balance mode, but not ¬†by much. I also suspected the Ac power adapter because it didn't seem to crash on battery for a brief time. But I was wrong and it did end up crashing whether plugged in or not.¬†
Aand cleaning it out w/ compressed air, obviously ... I don't game often, and usually play older games on lower quality settings. I'm not overclocking or streaming at the same time.¬†
I have an aspire 4745G which AMD Radeon Graphics might somehow be corrupted, and so ever since I was using the Intel dedicated VRAM, However I have accidentally changed graphics from switchable to discreet in BIOS and after restart all I get is black screen. I tried resetting the BIOS by shorting the jumpers beneath the WLAN card as per the manual but its still no good. The only thing it does after turning it on is that the HDD LED lights up for a second and then gone all black screen ...

This is a long winded question so bear with me. Both me and my friend, have Dell XPS M1710 laptops.
mine has the Go7900GS 256MB, and my mates has the 7950GTX 512MB, Graphics cards. have been thinking about an upgrade to a XPS M1730. The base model of the M1730 comes with a single Go8700gt 256MB card in it.
my question is this card any better than our older ones at DX9 and DX10 Games?? there is also an SLI option for the 8700gt, again how would this compare to our older cards??
I have an M90 and my FX 2500M has memory failure. I upgraded the M90 with a T7600 CPU, 4GB Ram, and it is running Vista Ultimate 64. What do I need to do to run the FX 1600M? Any other suggestions on cards is appreciated. I use it for 3D solid modeling and mechanical design.
I got this new xps studio 1340 and I noticed in the device manager that the display adapter is NVIDIA 9400 MG instead of g210 (n10). I also checked the Nvidia control panel and it said the same thing. I also installed some gpu detector (GPU CAPS viewer) and it said the same thing .....
