I remember on vista I was playing dirt 2 for a while, and the main menu music sounded incredible. Awesome deep loud sound.
Now on win 7, It seems do dull and lifeless and low. I have the latest realtek HD drivers for the 5920g. Everything is on max. Played around with the settings.
The speakers are capable of so much more, need more power delivered to them, NOT just a higher equaliser setting. Its so annoying having the volume on 100% and not being able to hear much.
Does anyone know of a way or modified drivers that boost the sound up? Such a shame, you should be able to use the speakers to capacity. I.e the point at which they start to distort is where you stop. I need at least 200% volume to achieve this.
Also what 64 bit druvers from realtek offer the best quality sound? Has anyone exprimented with this? I id notice a difference between versions in the past on vista.
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.
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.
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!
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?
About a week ago I had to do a full restore from the restoration discs HP had sent me, something was causing Windows Explorer to be incredibly unstable and I couldnt even make a set of backup discs...
BUT thats not the problem, after the installation, I realized that my laptop no longer detects the built it fingerprint reader and memory card slots... I figured, ok maybe I just need to go back and manually install the drivers... So I did from the HP website and still nothing worked... So I contacted HP support and naturally they gave me the links to the exact same pages I got the drivers off of, then they had me update my BIOS... still nothing... then they had me reinstall my fingerprint reader software... Still nothing... So then they told me to just send it into them under warrenty to have it fixed, except I'm a full time student and I depend on my laptop.
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.
I am having a problem with using the builtin microsd slot on the HP ElitePad 900.The Microsd card works on my laptop and works on the ElitePad when using the expansion jacket.When I insert the microsd card into the microsd slot on the rear on the Elitepad next to the 3G sim card, Windows 8 does not detect the card.I am using a Kingston 32Gb SDHC card.
Okay, well the day before yesterday I was trying to watch Youtube but when I clicked on a video it had no sound. I thought it was Youtube, so I exited the site and thought I'd wait a little bit. So then I went to Spotify to listen to some music. I kept clicking and clicking and nothing was happening. Then I noticed a blue notice at the top that said something about my soundcard not working properly.
I then checked everything on my computer to see if it had sound. Windows Media Player...no, videos on Facebook...nope, nothing was working. At first I thought it was my daughter. I let her watch Youtube when she lays down for a nap. I came in the other day and she was hitting all kinds of buttons on my computer. I stopped her though and everything seemed fine. I also remember my computer updating that day. Could it be that something went wrong with the update? I don't know if that's possible or not.
And also, what is a soundcard. Do I have to buy it or do I download it???
I went to Yahoo answers and someone said to uninstall the drivers. I did that and then reinstalled them and it worked. The rest of that day I had sound on everything except for Facebook. Yesterday night it happened again and the sound has not returned since but my computer sounds are still working. When I logged on the computer made the log in sound it usually makes. I also tried to listen to a video with headphones and it still did not work. Again, I uninstalled the drivers and then re installed them and got nothing.
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?
My Laptop model is: Dell Inspiron 15R. It has Intel HD 4000 and AMD 7670M Graphic Card, but only Intel HD 4000 card is detected when I scan for configuration in URL... This means AMD graphic card will not be used during game play ? what should I do to make the AMD card will be detected when we scan for configuration.
I have my options set for automatic Windows updates. Screen shows default time as 3am (changed to 5am), but I am receiving updates without warning while using computer. Can I receive a notification before the updates begin which gives me the option to delay???
Is this happening because I log off and completely shutdown computer/network at night?
I upgraded to windows 8.1 from store on my HP Envy DV6 7206tx and now, i am have problem with drivers for video and wireless cards. Both of them are not detected... checked in the windows device manager in video drivers Intel HD 4000 is detected and dedicated Nvidia card is not detected, it say "Microsofts Basic Display Adapter" instead.I just installed RaLink's Drivers from HP site got my wireless card working yet with problems like frequent disconnects and slow speed. When are the update from HP for all drivers expected for windows 8.1 ?
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.
i installed win 7(64bit) on 15d 103tx laptop...but i cudnt find the graphics card now...i have searched it via running dxdiag command in run and checking display adapters in device manager(there's only one adapter there-"standard vga graphics adapter").it was told that this machine has nvidia geforce 2gb graphics card dedicated.
I have a X1 Carbon with Sierra EM7345 WWAN modem. It is all installed perfectly - drivers etc. But id does not recognize the SIM card. I have googled a bit and I can say that:
1) I have the drivers OK, I have the WWAN network adapter etc. 2) I have inserted the SIM card correctly
The SIM card works perferctly if I use the USB 3G stick instead. So the problem is not in the SIM card. I think there is some configuraiton of the Sierra modem which should be done - to switch to 3G/2G or something.
ive got a new acer 6920g, while playin trackmania nations(da only game i hv rite nw) it starts off smooth at whatever graphics level i put it at but after say 2 minutes of gameplay da game gets choppy nd dusnt recover until i restart da game. i thot at first it wus da graphics card overheating or sumthing as sum ppl sed fer oder ppl wid similar problems....but i jus recently saw sum sed dis ws a problem wid da soundcard...so i disabled da sounds nd it wrkd fine...
I'm trying to get the latest video driver from Intel, but I couldn't install it. It gives me a message saying something like the product compatibility is not verified for my system. How do I get the latest driver for my gm965 chipset?
Round 1 was the GPU and thanks to that ordeal I made my share of posts in the venerable "Vertical Lines on Reboot & Crash & Vertical Lines" thread.
To insure I wouldn't have to go through a mobo swap again, I also did the infamous Cu Mod - which, btw, worked flawlessly and I still support the concept, regardless of which revision nVidia GPU you may have.
So talk about my astonishment when my 1330 just powered off instantly last night while I was doing some 3D work (*and* charging the battery...). At first I thought it was an OS glitch but after noting that I couldn't power the 1330 back on, I realized I was dealing with another issue.
Round 2: Symptom, diagnosis & prognosis:
>1330 will not power on and the external PS's blue LED is not lit.
>Connecting the 1330's PS (adapter) with the 1330 causes the PS to immediately switch off (fail-safe circuit).
This is easy to determine because the infamous blue LED goes out and stays out until you unplug and replug the adapter to the AC outlet (mains). Reconnecting the 1330 with the PS causes the PS to once again switch off. And so on.
>Hence, my second Mobo replacement is on order... sigh.
There's the slight chance that it's only the so-called "charger Board" which is actually connected to the mobo (see my pics - link in my sig. below) but the last time they replaced my mobo, they replaced the charger board along with it.
