I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti specifications reportedly revealed

After watching the Titan X struggle at 4K with several new games (even in SLi) it's difficult to manufacture genuine excitement for this card, as sweet as the specs are and as good as it looks.

Give the Credit to for the article. I've heard these specs a while ago and just remembered to post em.

Over the past six months, we heard different bits'n'pieces of information when it comes to GT300, nVidia's next-gen part. We decided to stay silent until we have information confirmed from multiple sources, and now we feel more confident to disclose what is cooking in Santa Clara, India, China and other nV sites around the world.

nVidia's GT300 specifications revealed - it's a cGPU! - Bright Side Of News*

Answer:Nvidia GT300 Specifications Revealed- it's a cGPU!

These kinds of stats always must be taken with a grain of Salt. We wont know til we see it

Real world results usually end up being somewhere in the 25-30% at most performance increases over previous models, but more than double would be amazing!

I know Nvidia has been struggling, and not doing well with profits since the ATI/AMD 4000 Series was launched. But they still have the most powerful GPU today.

I can only hope that the GT300 is like what the 8800GT was... a HUGE upgrade to just outright serious performance, and the 8800GT was the king for a good while there. I can see the new GT300 doing something similar and just bringing graphics to a new level once again.

We Shall See. I hope it doesn't cost to much, but as long as ATI keeps making good products as well. The competition will stay strong, and the prices will fall. In the end that is good for us, the consumer. =)

Answer:Nvidia's upcoming GeForce GTX 950 reportedly detailed

Ouch! Half way between 750Ti and 960, it will go for 165euros. That will make outdated AMD offerings price competitive, and sales internally cannibalised by 960, not to mention that all the recent games like GTA, Witcher shows 960 is actually todays entry gaming card from nVidia.

Looks pretty disappointing in my opinion, core speed isn't anything special considering what's out right now, and I'm a bit suprised that there is only 256MB VRAM on that thing, especially when you get a look at how big it is. The card is too big for my likes anyways, which seems particularily odd when the r520 shots I've seen don't look much bigger than the x850.

In my experience with IBM machine upgrades, you could get a good and cheap case, pop your dell system in there, and that way you could be able to upgrade your GPU and PSU at the same time.

Just two of my cents.

O... Here's my dillema.   My HP NVIDIA card (HP p/n 466762-001 rev:M03) in my HP Model: 9520f Windows 7 Ultimate machine failed.   I replaced it with an ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT card (p/n 5188-8004, asus p/n C403H) that came from a spare HP Pavillion Model a6150y Vista machine I had on hand. The initial VID/Graphics card failure and susequent replacement caused much havock with Windows and some other stuff (ie, not booting/loading Windows etc...) and after much effort I was able to get everything loading & working reasonable well again.   But the problem I'm still having is with the old drivers (removing them and all their remnants) and loading the new drivers for the ASUS NVIDIA card that is now in my machine.  I've tried normal uninstalls as well as the GURU DDU uninstall.  I think (and it appeares) that all the old NVIDIA drvers and other software has been uninstalled because I can not find any of it in the normal locations.   But I am still unable to install the NVIDIA 8500GT drivers for the ASUS card from the NVIDIA site or even the NVIDIA drivers/software updates that Windows Update has detected and suggested in Windows updates.  The insalls start out fine but soon fail to complete. Evidently I (and my brother who was in my machine remotely for a good 6 hours because he is an IT/Computer tech and is ten times more knowledgable than I on this) are missing something very...

I'm not a gamer, but rather an enthusiastic net surfer and would like my present graphics card to be as fast as easily possible. To do this, it has been suggested that I update my card's driver with downloading/installing Nvidia's latest driver (285.62 WHQL, Win7 64-bit...4G RAM, Firefox 9). Would this be the the right thing to do?

So I just updated to windows 10. and first thing i go to do is turn up my saturation, nvidia control panel doesnt work, i go to my device manager looks like my graphics card isnt even installed, i install it and restart pc, nvidia control panel still doesnt work, I install geforce experience, that wont launch either.


Answer:Nvidia geforce experience & nvidia control panel not working.

Nightmare, but I managed to fix things on my computer.

First I stopped Microsoft updates.
Then uninstalled every NVIDIA program/driver/utility I could find and (IMPORTANT) deleted the install folders!

To stop Windows 10 updates do this...

Open the start menu and type "Advanced"
Select the second result, "View Advanced System Settings"
In the "System Properties" window that just opened, select the hardware tab
Click the "Device Installation Settings" button
Select "No, let me choose what to do"
Select the "Never install driver software from Windows Update"

To boot into safe mode do this...

Type msconfig and open the System Configuration utility.
Click "Boot" and check the "Safe Boot" option.

Next time you boot into Windows 10 it will be in 'Safe Mode.'
Install the following driver...


Do NOT install the GForce Experience and do not update the graphics driver to the newer version.

I dunno if this will work for you, but it sorted out my problems.
Incredibly, even after I had disabled Windows updates the crafty twat STILL downloaded an NVIDIA driver.
Now I get pop up alerts from the task bar whining that it can't do the update!

Microsoft... Inching it's way slowly into the past!

Hi all,
I have a XPS 8300 from 2011.  
My son wanted to upgrade his GPU (he has a Erazer 310 ( which has a Nvidia GTX 750 Ti like this one (
So I thought it was the perfect time to take his 750 Ti and upgrade both PC's at the same time.
I took my GPU out of the XPS 8300 and inserted the 750 TI. Nothing happened. The PC did not recognize the card.
Then I started to read all types of discussions, problems, adventures and what not, about this PC and a GPU upgrade. Man, I was about to do a BIOS flashing without even knowing what that meant...I have to admit that it has been 2 very interesting days and I have learnt a lot and then...
Then I found the simpliest video with the simplest explanation on how to do proceed. I tried it and completely succeeded in about 15 minutes (plus 10 minutes of downloading a driver).
So, here is the link to the video. The video is in Spanish but these are the SO LOGICAL steps (
I added two steps on my own and then followed the video:
1. My step: Turn on the PC and unistall the stock GPU (from the device manager)
2. Turn of the computer.
The video explanation starts in second 50:
3.Disconnect the power (for security reasons).
4. Open the case and extract the GPU you currently have (he does not show this in the video)
5. Check that at least you have 300 W. The XPS 8300 has a 460 W power supply so... Read more

Lenovo seems to be lagging behind in getting updated graphics drivers from Nivida to its loyal customers.  So I went to the Nvidia site and looked.  The date on my driver is 12/16/2008.  When I let nvidia scan my system it reports that it is driver 179.30.  The latest for the 105m is 186.  And to add insult to injury Nvidia says "The manufacturer of this system requires that you download the driver for your GPU from their support site."  Sooooooo....... I have two questions: 1)  for Lenovo - when do you expect to release a new Nvidia driver for us? 2)  for other (apparantly) forgotton loyal Lenovo cusoters like myself: .....Has anyone gone ahead and installed the Nvidia driver?  Does it work?  Are there problems?  How did you get around them? Ok sorry - that's more than 2 questions.  :-)  But I think you get my drift. Brassie

Answer:Graphics driver from Nvidia for my SL500 with the Nvidia Geforce G 105m?

1) The Lenovo drivers are tested rigiously to make sure it is not incompatible with the systems, so this is why it is so slow. 2) No, only the nvidia driver from Lenovo would work.

I have an older machine I use for backup (Dell OptiPlex 745) fairly well appointed, with an on-the-motherboard graphics adapter (Intel, I think) running one monitor and a plug-in nVidia based adapter, running two monitors. I was running Linux on it until January 2015, when I joined the Windows Insider Program and installed Win 10. At first the two nVidia-driven monitors would not work at all, but in a few months they started working after an update download from Microsoft (I was a "fast track" Insider). All was well until February 2016, when both nVidia monitors quit working and my WiFi card went dead. I tried a number of things, but no no avail. I got the nVidia-based monitors when I directly downloaded a driver from the manufacturer, but after that, when the first Microsoft update was downloaded, the nVidia-driven screens went blank. I really need three monitors for the work I do. I tried all sorts of things, including a hard disk wipe and complete reload of Win 10. No success. I just ran out of time to experiment with it after a few weeks.

I'm now very concerned about my main machine. It's an older custom-built machine with an Intel Core2 Q6600 processor and two graphics cards: a GeForce 8800GT and GeForce 9500GT, driving four monitors. I really can't screw up on its Win 7 to 10 upgrade and loose this machine because of bad device drives forced on me by Microsoft.

QUESTION: Does anyone have success with the 8800GT and/or 9500GT?

Answer:nVidia GeForce 8800GT and GeForce 9500GT

Hi @websquad .

IMHO you should stop Device driver automatic installation, then Uninstall the installed nvidia driver, and try 341.95 WHQL.

341.95 WHQL should work with both of your cards.
Just make one thing sure, perform a driver only installation of the nvidia installer package.

Hi, Im thinking about buying a new graphic card and found a card i liked named ASUS GeForce 9400 GT. On the website where they sell it its located under the tab Nvidia, yet if I check out Nvidias prducts page their 9400 GT looks completely different from this one. Then I check out ASUS page and there I find it. So what's the difference between ASUS and Nvidia, why do their cards have the same name, and why does the website im buying it from put the ASUS card under Nvidia products????

Answer:Difference between ASUS GeForce and Nvidia GeForce???

Nvidia designs and makes the GeForce line of graphics chips. Other manufacturers such as Asus, evga, BFX, PNY and others then use the Nvidia chips in their graphics card designs.

Hello I'm replacing a mobo in a R61 14.1" that has a bad board due to nvidia issue I'm having a really hard time finding specific info on certain boards to determine if they have socket P sockets or not (I have a T8300 processor). So, Here's what I've figured out (based on research and more importantly the HMM for my machine).  The T61 Boards will fit - I need X3100 and socket P 42W7866 - appears to be good to go41W1487 - NOT good as it is NOT a socket P board R61 boards 42W784242W7868 The two above HAVE firewire 42W784342W7869 The two above DON'T HAVE firewire. So, I know amongst those 4 for the R61, 2 are likely socket P (one with and one without FW) and 2 are not. But I'll be **bleep** if I can find a reliable source to find out which are which. I've been searching for a couple hours straight. So, if anyone knows the direct answer to that OR even better can point me (or somone reading this post in the future) to where they would find that info, that would be fantastic.

I am thinking of getting a new graphics card for x-mas. I currently have a Geforce 8600 GT and i was looking at this GT 220.

Which is better? i think the 220 is but i just wanted some expert confirmation.

GT 220: (scroll down past the 210)

8600 GT: (The right Column)

Answer:NVIDIA GT 220 VS Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT

Why bother? If you want to upgrade from an 8600GT - you need to buy a card that has a noticable difference.

For example... the 9500/9400GTs are also pretty much re-badged 8600s. Think of the 220 as a smaller and cheaper to make version of the 8600GT with blu-ray decoding abilities. Its more like a bit better version of the 8600GTs.... that costs $65~95.

An ATI 4670 is about $60~95. Heres a nice one at $80:

But for real big speed bumps - look at ATI 4800s/5700s or at least a GTX 260... or even the GT250 (which is a 9800GT which is a 8800GT - UGH! )
These cards are about $ 120~200.

Your power supply will also be important too. Do you know your brand and model number?

Also your computers own performance.

nForce is chip-set, GeForce is graphics. I would say that GeForce 8200P / GeForce 8200P-A-AR is refering to your graphics card not your chip-set.

The GT 240 is a better card then the GT 220, hence the higher model number. Neither is a great gaming card though, but the GT 240 is good enough for most games. See a benchmark here with both cards and lasts years mid range card and the previous years near top card, the 8800GT:,2475.html

paula89, welcome to the Seven Forums.

To answer your question, quite simply you don't. There is not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for that card, as Nvidia dropped support for it a long time ago. The best you can do is the last XP driver,

ForceWare Windows XP/2000 32-bit

Probably have to use compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

to get it to install. It the rest of the computer is of similar vintage as the video card, there is also a good possibility that the video driver won't install due to the lack of a working AGP/GART driver.

The reason you can't find any drivers for that card is that there aren't any, and haven't been any for close to 5 years. Here is a thread from our graphics card section,

Hey I am not entirely sure if this is the right form but anyway, I'm looking for a Compatible Graphics Card for my pc, an Inspiron 530 which I have had for 4 or 3 years.I have seen a Nvidia Geforce GT 220, and wondered if that was compatible because I need a graphics card that can play Sims 3 and all its EP's and SP's as well as the Harry Potter games and that card is in both their system requirments.  The card would must be used for gaming.So basically, my questions are;Is Inspiron 530 compatible with Nvidia Geforce GT 220?Are there better graphics cards that are compatible with my Inspiron 530 and Sims 3 and The Harry Potter games?And if I were to get it, would I need someone to fit it for me?Thank you.Just an additional question, is there any chance you can change your level of experience and what type of operating system you have, as I accidently didn't notice that at the start and I pressed ok?

Answer:NVIDIA Geforce GT 220?

According to the site, it looks like you have a 300W power supply which is not very good for a fast graphics card. You should be able to get one that will support the games you want, but most likely no more than that.A GeForce GT 240 should be good. It may be possible to get a GT 430, but you should check the amperage on your 12V rail to be sure. To do this, open up your comp and look at the power supply. There should be a sticker on it. Look for +12V it should then say how many amps (A) next to it. If you want the 430, it has to be bigger than 22A.

Hi guys. I am planning on upgrading my GTX 555 OEM cause its a little to low end for my taste. The question I have for all the tech-savy people out there is which graphics card should I get? A Geforce GTX 680, 690, or 780? I've heard that the 690 is basically 2 680s running in SLI. If that's true, that means any games that wont work with SLI or don't perform well with SLI, will still have the same problems and I wont be able to do anything about it. So i was wondering which one do you think I should get? I wanna be able to run any next gen games on max settings if not, one below max settings.

So I've installed the correct driver as prescribed by one of the members off the NVidia forums. It comes to a part, half-way into the installation that it freezes and you still get that laggy graphics. Now in device driver it says that "Video Controller" it says that "Drivers for this device is not installed. (Code 28)" And I have a choice to "reinstall driver" which is confusing... also have a few choices to update, rollback and uninstall driver. It's been an issue for the past 3 months, although it has worked once when I attempted to install a game - and mysteriuously enabled me to "enable driver".

Thanks a lot if you can help.

please help this is extremely frustrating if its broken i just want to know what part needs to be replaced thanks in advance

edit: i have removed the card and put it back, i also tried re installing the drivers but the disc tells me that the drivers are not need for the radeon (which i know) so it only detects the radeon not the nvidia graphics card.

hi can forgive me for my dumbness

can anyone explain to me my Graphic Card Specs

Im asking this because i remember buying this graphic card a year ago having 1gb. Im confused because i can't see 1gb on the specs.

Answer:Nvidia geforce 210

It depends on the card manufacturer. What you have linked to is the page from NVidia which lists the reference specs for a card of that type. Other manufacturers take the reference design and customize/tweak it. The changes that they typically make is to increase the amount of memory (usually by higher-capacity chips or by inserting chips into otherwise empty memory positions on the PCB) and/or pre-overclock the card (make it run faster than reference).

To find the actual specs for your card, you will need to check the card manufacturer's website (Sparkle, PNY, etc.).

I went to the advanced settings and tried to change the adapter and the card but none of them worked. I decided to take out the old card and try the new card just by it self but that didn't work either. after I decided to put the old card in and just use that cause I still had the drivers on the computer, I finally got the drivers for the card but it isn't working past the default display settings and won't show all the display options that the card can perform. (just 16, 256, and 16 bit color with 640x480, 600x800, and 1024x768 settings)(can do better display and more color before adding 2nd video card) whenever I try to update the drivers for the cards and the monitor, I just keep having to restart and the settings don't change. it gets really frustrating cause I end up going in circles.

But after I let it sit for 3-4 min it starts right up fine.

any idea why this would hapen?

I've the following PC Specs:(1) Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 Processor.(2) Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6 Motherboard i.e. with Intel X48 Chipset.(3) 2GB DDR3 RAM.(4) 450W PSU.(5) SATA 160GB HDD.The Gigabyte motherboard i mentioned has specified in its specification that it "Supports ATI CrossFireX with Dual PCI-E 2.0 x16 graphics for extreme gaming performance". Does that mean, "nVidia Geforce/nForce" GPU can't run to its full potential, but an "ATI Radeon" GPU can?So, i thought of adding an ATI GPU card which might result in more compatibility than adding an nVidia GPU card. Will there be any case of nVidia GPU of not running to its full potential?Should my PC run a "nVidia" GPU? OR it should run an "ATI Radeon" GPU? Which one is perfect?Specification Websites:click here --Intel Core2Quad Q8400click here --Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6click here --ATI Radeon HD4350 GPUPlease reply ASAP.Thank you.

Answer:Should my PC run nVidia Geforce or ATI Radeon?

I'm no expert but I would guess the board will support any graphics card. The CrossFireX is only applicable if you intend to use two graphics cards at once. I'm not so sure if it applies to the cards that have two graphics cores built in though, for instance would my NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2, which has 2 cores work with it even though it uses only one PCI-E socket? My guess is that it would as two PCI-E sockets aren't being used, but it's only my guess.If you're planning to use two graphics cards then I would guess your best bet would be the ATI route as NVIDIA's SLI doesn't seem to be supported. If you're planning on using one card then either make would, I presume, work. Why not email Gigabyte and ask their opinion?

OR, one with two 16x slots with SLi / Crossfire support if you plan to add another graphics card in the future.Assuming you'll be getting a 8800GT, if you can stretch your budget a little, also consider the newer breed of cards - the nVidia 9800GTX, & ATI: HD 4850 or HD 4870 in particular.What's the rest of your proposed spec may I ask?

Answer:NVIDIA Geforce FX5200

Is the S-VIDEO output on the video card connected to the TV's S-VIDEO input, and the TV is viewing from the S-VIDEO input, and using your VGA monitor to switch to S-VIDEO out in Display Properties?

I recently formatted my hard drive and foolishly forgot to backup my drivers, now I have no idea what Display Adapter Driver to download. Here are my computer details:
before it said 32 MB NVIDIA GEFORCE 2 MX
then Graphics accelerator said something different too.
I downloaded 56.72 from the website but I got this message when I tried to install

Maybe its just a loud card?. If you think it is a problem download Nvidia tray tools and Ntune, you can adjust how fast the fan spins if i remember correctly

It could be that the player copies the DVD first rather than just playing it as a result the DVD copyright protection will not allow the copy to take place?

I bought the Nvidia Geforce FX 5500.

I disabled Intel before Installing the new drivers, but I have this sick feeling
that my onboard Intel Extreme Graphics is still lurking somewhere using up system resources.

How can I tell if my graphics card is running as fast as it should be?

Answer:Nvidia Geforce FX 5500

did you turn off the integrated graphics controller at the BIOS level? you can check task manager to see if any Intel app is running for your graphics card.

use the latest graphics's the easiest way to get the most out of your system.

hi there!

i just have one very specific question, since I cannot find my specifications anywhere on my video card, but airport tycoon 2 (the game i wanna play) tells me I have to have a 32MB video card, and the main screen is shaded (you can see the menus but the main screen is dark all the time), I thought maybe it's due to my video card. Can therefore anybody tell me the following:

Is the NVIDIA GeForce 2MX/MX400 card 32MB or 16MB????

I know it's a strange question, but maybe someone out there knows, so at least I will know if it's the fault of my videocard or not. Thanx!!!

According to the December 2010 Hardware and Software Survey by popular online game provider Steam, the GeForce 8800 is the most popular GeForce GPU in use today. NVIDIA launched the GeForce 8800 for Windows Vista nearly 3 years ago in support for DirectX 10. The GeForce 8800 GT was one of the most popular GPU upgrades at the time due to the performance/price ratio. The GeForce 8800 GT and its successor the 9800 (which is the second most popular GeForce GPU) have proven to be excellent GPUs. However, today NVIDIA is giving those who have these older GPUs a reason to upgrade: the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. NVIDIA?s own data shows that people tend to upgrade their GPUs every 3 years or so. And we?re just coming up on the 3 year mark since the GeForce 8800 was released so it?s the perfect time for the GTX 560 Ti to make its debut.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is a fantastic upgrade from the GeForce 8800 GT. Overall, the GTX 560 Ti shows a 3x performance increase over the GeForce 8800 GT. The GeForce 8800 GT had 512MB of GDDR3 memory, while the GTX 560 Ti has 1GB of GDDR5. The GTX 560 Ti also has an 822MHz graphics clock. The GTX 560 Ti is designed along the same lines as the GTX 570/580 where on a transistor level changes have been made to make it more efficient with power consumption. The basic goal for the new design NVIDIA has chosen with the GTX 500 series GPUs is to have great performance while consuming the least amount of power possible. The GTX 560 Ti is equipped with 384 CUBA... Read more

thanks for that sarge, interesting improvements, does make crysis look less cartoony, but in regards to clarity, it doesnt look that good, too much happening on screen to make it look authentic might just make it overkill, also, why compare a new card to a card that was released 5 generations ago? strange benchmark comparison TBH.

its normal that my video card temperature level is 67* when im not playin no games or using any programs and when i lunch a game it gets to 70+????
its pretty hot i think could burn anytime i think plz any advise thx

Answer:NVIDIA GeForce 6800

I know that the 6800-Series cards are pretty warm, but it seems a bit (or somewhat) high for an idle temperature. I presume it's in celsius . Make sure the fan is spinning properly and attatched correctly. Open up the side your your case and blow a fan onto the card. I would suggest that you buy something along the lines of this. I say something along the lines of this because I have not personally used a VGA Cooler on anything that I own, but I searched Newegg (great company if you live in the U.S., tell me if you live elsewhere so we at TechSpot can find the correct website for you ), and I searched for the best reviewed cooler, and that came up ! Good Luck :wave: !

I recently picked up a second hand notebook a few days ago. I purchased it from a second hand notebook store and they clean installed windows 7 onto it.

The guy at the store said he wasn't sure if he installed the right graphic card drivers and considering the fact it rebooted itself and switched into 16 colour mode the first time I used it; I'd presume he was right.

As far as I can tell the problem is purely around the Nvidia Geforce 9300m G... I tried a few different drivers for it from the Nvidia website, but they all did the same thing. I then tried looking up drivers more specifically for the ASUS brand F6S Model notebook, but unfortunately the only specifically made drivers I could find were Vista drivers.

What happens exactly is:
Every time I run any 3d excelerated software where things are detailed (my old openGL tests work fine), it goes from being completely smooth to freezing the computer... the fan (the fan on the graphics card; I presume) then speeds up alot... It either stays frozen until reset or it reboots itself...

I then have to use the "repair windows" option on startup so it doesn't go back into 16 colour mode.
I really have no clue what to do... I don't know if it's drivers, incorrect bios configuration, if it was accidently overclocked in store (directX 11 claims it has approx. 1521mbs of total memory when it's only a 512mb card )
If anyone could help me, I'd be very thankful... this is really stressing me out.
