When I am working in speed more for a while, when I try drag around windows i get this really annoying lag.
The window will kind of sputter as I drag it... but if i do it a few times then the dragging gets smooth again. Its as if the nvidia chip needs to wake up and run fast or something. It feels like garbage
I've been eyeing a Vaio Z-series (555 or the the 590 online-only in Canada) but I want to make absolutely sure that it contains a nVidia card (9300M GS 256MB).
When I go to the stores to look at the store model (Sony store & Best Buy), in Device Manager and Display setting, I only see the Intel Mobile graphics chips. No where on the system does it appear to say that it contains a nVidia card. I tried using the Stamina/Speed slider to see if there was a different (setting it to Speed), and the graphics card still says INTEL.
For all those who own a laptop from this series, what do you see?
Do *all* Vaio Z-series have a nVidia or only certain ones? Is it just a driver/software issue for the ones at the stores?
Earlier i changed my window vista home premium to window 7, but then i changed it to window vista ultimate.
when i had window 7, my graphics card which is nvidia work perfectly fine, but after i change to window vista ultimate, i " lost " my nvidia driver. i downloaded nvidia driver at ww.nvidia.com but when i tried to install it, i get an error " The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hrdware. Setup will now exit."
I really want to install that driver, i have nvidia graphic card but i cant install the driver
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.
I've had my Inspiron 1420 for about a year and a half now, with virtually no problems except when dealing with Windows Vista. But, about a month ago, I was playing a very graphics intensive game and all of a sudden my screen froze, colors inverted, and it started to flash and pixelate at me. I turned my computer off, then back on, and this started happening:
I turned my computer off again and blew out all the dust I could, then let it cool down. When I started back up everything was fine again. But about a week later, it did the same thing, but for longer.
About an hour later it was fine again. A couple weeks went by and nothing like that happened again, up until about three days ago. I was playing my game again and then it started to pixelate, but I could still play. The screen would scramble, but it was almost like it would refresh every 10 seconds or so and the screen would be fine. That night, I was (again) playing my game and my screen scrambled, froze, and went to your basic blue screen.
I rebooted and everything was fine, but the next day I turned on my computer and it did the segemented screen again and when I tried to fix it, another blue screen came up saying "Hardware Malfunction, call you hardware vendor for support .....
Recently bought a Acer Aspire Nitro v15 with windows 8.1 with a qualcomm atheros ar5bwb222 wireless network card. The connection is really unstable and often disconnects and have very few bars. This is not from the router since the connection on my phone and other computers are fine. The connection (when i have it) is also really slow compared to when i use my phone on the same network. I tried updating the drivers but it says my latest drivers are installed. Could this be a Windows 8.1 problem? this is my first time owning a windows 8.1 computer.
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.
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.
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).
Ive been having playing my games thought, every time I play my driver crashes. so i try to update my nvidia driver which the laptop came with, now i go to nvidia scan my driver and says i got to download the update from acer. So i look for it and i search for it...downloading the setup...and i extract it...and two files are corrupt...anyways, is that happening for anyone else or the site is down or something.
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 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 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 .....
On my VN7-571G-599B, i have a problem with the wifi.
With Nvidia card (GTX 850M):
In 1920*1080, when i launch a game in full screen, my wifi disconnect (on all games). In 1600*900, when i launch a game in full screen, my wifi still connects but crash 2-3 minutes after. When i launch a game in windowed mode, my wifi still connect.
With Intel card:
No problem !
My drivers are up to date (Nvidia and Atheros Wifi). Avast and Windows firewall are disable for the test.
Could a few technologists in the know give me a detailed rundown on the primary differences between the three nVidia card options for the E1705/9400?
I quickly replaced my original X1400 with a dual pipe 7900GS but I am now interested in either moving up to a 7900GTX or a 7950GTX. I know I will also need to upgrade to the 130W or 150W PS as well.
I am looking for comparison information regarding memory, clockspeeds, pipeline counts, pixel/vertex units, pixel/fill rates, processing bandwidth, etc.
I am also curious about a good source for the purchase of any of these items. I have found one posting on eBay for a 7950GTX. I am interested to know if I can purchase directly from Dell, or save a few bucks by purchasing from eBay or a forum member. I also know I have read that there are equivalent Quadro (sp?) cards which will work in my machine. Are there any disadvantages to taking this route?
I know I could dig through a thousand plus posts on the topics and find all of the information I want, but I also know how much you guys thrive on expressing your technical expertise on subjects such as this ..........................
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.
I have a Dell inspiron n5110 with a dedicated graphic card. My laptop was running fine till yesterday but today as i started gaming on my laptop it started to shut down. I tried many things but to no avail. Then i uninstalled my nvidia graphic card and tried to run the game again it wroked just fine but as soon as i installed my nvidia card and triend running it on it the laptop again got shutdown. i searched the internet and found its wither my Power unit or my graphic card has become faulty.
