Preferred Solution: Nvidia removes overclocking from 900M mobile GPUs, a feature advertised on some notebooks

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 removes overclocking from 900M mobile GPUs, a feature advertised on some notebooks

LOL it is clearly a move by Nvidia to force people to upgrade more often. They will probably take the 980m and do the same thing they did with the 680MX -> keep re-releasing it with 10% higher clocks every year.

Problem is that someone with a 680mx could just overclock it 30% and get an 880m. However this should be a problem for Nvidia, not us. If they want us to upgrade, give us something worth upgrading to!

Answer:Nvidia quietly blocks GeForce GTX 900M overclocking once again

Why would nVidia do this secretively? This just erodes their relationship with gamers and their buyers... At least give a SIMPLE statement: "Overclocking was shown to make GPUs unstable and lessen their lifespans, so we disabled the overclocking ability in R350 drivers again". No need to keep that secret.

NVIDIA Renaming Desktop & Mobile GPUs

According to VR-Zone, NVIDIA is giving their desktop and mobile GPUs a name change. The crew at VR-Zone was digging around in a recent driver package and found the following:
It appears Nvidia is carrying out the rebranding of their GPUs on both desktop and mobile front as VR-Zone has learned from the recent releases of the Forceware drivers. On the desktop front, there are GeForce GTS 150 based on G92, GeForce GT 130 based on G94, GeForce GT 120 based on G96 and GeForce G100 based on G98. On the mobile front, there are GeForce GTX 180M and GTX 170M based on G92, GeForce GTS 160M based on G94, GeForce GT 130M and G 110M based on G96 and GeForce G 105M based on G98.

I am currently overclocking my graphics card. I have increased the frequencies as follows:
Core was 200 now 216
Mem was 390 now 393

I am pleased with the results so far but iwas wondering how far i should go. There dont seem to be any comparisons posted on the net.

Answer:Overclocking Nvidia Geforce 4200 Go mobile

how far you should go depends on YOUR chip and memory, not what everyone else has. so as a guage, i recommend you loop 3dmark 2001 demo or something like that and look for artifacts. if you see triangular/polygonal shapes appearing that don't belong, then your gpu is too high. if you start seeing snow (typically green), then the memory is too high.... or i could have gotten that backwards, but those are the two signs that tell you your setup is too fast. you also have to consider heat, as well, but that shouldn't be too hard to tell if it's too hot.

Hi! I'm looking for a notebook with USB-C port, and specifically for one whose battery can be charged through its USB-C port. For the sake of clarity I'm not talking about charging other devices here, like Powersharing, but more the ability to charge the PC itself without having to bring a big Powerbrick wherever I go. I know that the Spectre ultrabooks have this feature but since I'm leaning towards a more traditional model in terms of ergonomics I'd like to know if there any of the ProBook, EliteBook och ZBook models that also can be powered through the USB-C port? It seems as if the ProBook 640 G2 and the HP EliteBook 850 G3 can do this, but I'm not sure. Help is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Anders

Question: Mobile GPUs

While I have been sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for DB to sub naruto and with no games to play and no Venice to tweak, I have been thinking up ideas for a variety of things.

We are all well aware that GPUs are built in the mobile format specifically for laptops, but how would you feel about a mobile GPU availible for the desktop enviroment.

Obviously less heat, smaller card size, and less power consumption are something the end user would appreciate, so I'm interested in your thoughts as to why GPU manufacturers have not made say a 6800MT or something availible to the desktop platform. Is this something that you would be interested to see?

In my opinion, I'd be all over one of these as would most likely many other users, both for overclockability, and since GPU temperatures are quite dangerously hot now.

I have a GTX 950 GPU which is adequate for gaming and an integrated GPU which supports additional monitors but I want to connect some more monitors and to do this I am considering the nVidia Quadro NVS 450 which is pretty cheap (<?25). Two people on the nVidia forum said that you can't have two different GPUs in the same machine because the last driver to be installed overrides the other but this seems wrong to me. My nVidia 950 and integrated Intel graphics chip work alongside each other and it seems incredible to me that nVidia could be so incompetent that they can't write drivers which don't interfere with each other.

I have a Z230 SFF with both integrated Intel E3-1245v3 iGPU and an Nvidia NVS 310 dGPU. I use the iGPU as the primary VGA (active on boot) and pass the dGPU through to a virtual machine. With BIOS 1.18 + ME this worked fine by setting: Advanced: VGA Configuration:Slot 1: Nvidia VGA controller: Non-boot deviceIGD: Intel VGA controller: Primary VGA device Then, before a planned system reinstall, I decided to update the BIOS and ME. I chose BIOS 1.53 and ME based on the History.htm release notes included with the latest BIOS 1.55 update package. Following the BIOS and ME updates, the system initially continued to work as I wanted, booting with iGPU active. But then I cleared the CMOS while troubleshooting another problem. That reset the primary VGA to the dGPU. Advanced: Device Options : Integrated Video was set to Disabled. I enabled Advanced: Device Options: Integrated Video, but then there was *no* VGA active on reboot. I had to reset CMOS again to get back to using the dGPU as primary VGA. Then I discovered that with the updated BIOS + ME, the BIOS Setup Advanced: VGA Configuration option has disappeared.  Any hints for getting the iGPU back to primary VGA? Ordinarily I'd consider flashing back to working BIOS 1.18, butI don't actually have a BIOS 1.18 flash file.

A few days ago, NVIDIA released the Forceware 196.75 drivers. Yesterday, I noticed the Forceware 196.21 drivers are listed again. Does anyone know why NVIDIA has reverted back to the previous version? I personally am not having a problem with the newer version, but I'm not a gamer nor do anything graphically-extensive with my Vista desktop.

int he video cards settings it has an option for overclocking. it has both auto and a manual option. when i click auto it gives me a long warning on how it voids my warranty and could seriously hurt my system. ive had no problems with the card but i wouldnt mind it faster. would it be worth it to overclock?

Answer:overclocking nvidia 6600gt

It all depends on you. The performance gains you recieve are pretty much goign to be solely for bragging rights. That card can run any game on the market right now at good speeds and high settings, without over clocking. So it's not like it will effect game play really. Doing it would pretty much just be to increase scores on benchmarks at this point.

As far I know this procedure was only able on the desktop PC with the older Nvidia graphic driver. But as far as I know it?s not possible to activate the option ?Refresh Rate Overrides? on the Toshiba notebooks. Toshiba graphic driver includes a overheating protection because of graphic card overheating issue.
In this case it?s not advisable to overclock anything on the notebook.

In one game I play, It does not have 1920x1080 resolution, I use 1280x800.

If I use 1920x1080 normal resolution, and start the game, it will only show in the top left hand corner of the screen, it does not cover up the whole screen, so I have to use 1280x800 as my normal resolution.
For Nvidia users, the problem was fixed by using Nvidia scaling feature, I use ATi, so is there anything I can do?
Thanks in advance.

-Sorry for posting in 'Graphics Card' section.

Answer:Is thera an ATi equivalent for Nvidia scaling feature?

ATI drivers do have GPU scaling. Although I'm not sure this is your actual issue here. It looks more like an issue with the game itself.

Drop the desktop resolution to the resolution you want scaled.

CCC - Desktop & Displays - Right Click on the small Monitor icon - Configure - Attributes - Tick Enable GPU scaling and select Scale image to full panel size.

If it's a DX9 game you can return to your monitors native resolution then launch the game.
With DX10 & 11, you have to remain at the resolution you intend to game at else it doesn't scale properly.

"The answer is: yes we can!"

Thanks Obama. For any Mac users who love to hang out on their windows partition, or if you have an Nvidia card (which is a lot of people) with some dedicated memory in it, then I suggest this app.

I run my GPU overclocked at 632MHz

and my shader at 1300 MHz

Do not go over these limites, and you are going to need to download a fan control program for your mac side, set up a higher fan speed, get core temp and make sure you don't go over 90C core temp is here

And I take no responsibility for you frying your card. Although I've been gaming on these settings for over a year, and I'm completely fine. So take it as you will, I get almost 25%+ better performance with these settings.

Im looking to get a little bit more juice out of my Nvidia GeForce 4 Ti 4200 128MB. What tools do I need to overclock? Are there any guides out there? How do I know when its passed the limit?

Thanks for reading,

Answer:overclocking nvidia geforce 4 ti 4200

If you are running the lastest Detonator in the display property should have a "overclock" option. That option let you increase the memory and chip speed. If you don't see that option then use google and find the "coolbits registry" hack. Basically it "add" the "overclock " option to the Nvidia tab .
Couple of things to keep in mind though.
1. The more you increase the speed the more heat the card will generate ( all though rare , you can fry the card). So standard Geforce heatsink+ram is not recommended to be used when overclocking.
2. Since you have a Ti4200 even though you might be able to increase the speed ( RAM and chip) you'll not see a "dramatic" increase in game play. The Ti4200 was a "budget" card , meaning it misses some "features" that can increase "game play". You would be better off with a Ati 9600 ( if you have the cash)
3. You'll know you when you'll run into problems with overclocking. You'll see that windows will not be able to run , or will see weird graphics ( be that game play or 2D windows), will see games "crashing" and booting you back to 2D windows. Of course if you'll not able to boot at all and the mobo will start making sounds, you'll know that the card is fried.
If you still are interested, i suggest to start slow. Increase slowly, reboot , try some games , if they look fine and run for 10 min , them increase again and... Read more

Answer:Dual Nvidia 8800 GT SLI overclocking

I would use EVGA precision (sorry, no link atm) and just...overclock?
SLI doesn't make any difference except temperature wise. Also you can individually control the graphics cards, but thats not necessary. Just keep temperatures in check.

With the 8800gt, you could easily reach 650 (my suggestion is to just leave the shader clock in check with the core speed, I believe EVGA precision will do this by default), and just inch on from there while watching temps and stress testing with games or something.

Hey guys, I recently bought a Geforce 9500 GT and I'm looking to overclock it. It's from BFG Tech (part number BFGC951024GTE) It comes clocked at 550, and I'd like to overclock it to 600 or 650 (600 first, watch temps ext.)

When playing games, it averages in about around 54 celcius, which is pretty decent for gaming. It QUICKLY drops down to high 40's (47 currently, just coming from playing WoW on full).

I've heard about RivaTuner, and it looks promising, I'm just not 100% sure yet. How good is RivaTuner, or what can I use to overclock my GPU?

Also, I am using Windows 7. Would this make any difference?

Thanks a lot guys!

Answer:Overclocking a nVidia Geforce 9500 GT?

Overclocking the 9500GT (which is pretty much a 8600GTs) may gain you 2~5fps.

RivaTuner is an OC software you can use. If you want noticeable more performance, you need a better video card... Even something like the $65 4670/9600GT is about twice as fast. But even the 9500gt is more than enough for WOW.

Answer:Overclocking an Nvidia 8800 Ultra/ Quad Core 2.5

You can't overclock your Ultra like that. You can only overclock the frequency speeds, like the core speed and memory speed, not the amount of physical memory.

Overclocking your CPU from 2.5 to 3.0GHz should be easy. I overclocked my CPU from 2.66GHz to 3.0GHz easily with no problem.

Your graphic cards are fine for GTA4. GTA4 doesn't use SLI yet, and 1 Ultra is enough. A friend of mine is running GTA4 with a Core i7 920 and a single Ultra and he gets 65fps on max everything.

Core i7s run GTA4 amazingly, quad cores run it well, but still get some slowdowns on maximum everything.

Alright ladies and gentleman. I've decided to make a tutorial for getting the latest desktop drivers for NVIDIA laptop models to work well

You can try to permanently disable this "feature" of Windows 7 x64 by searching Google. Please do not ask me how as I do not use x64 and
don't know. But there is a way. If you can't find it, for x64, you will have to use f8 or similar key to start the machine each time.
1) Download the latest desktop driver for Win7 and the card that is closest to yours from NVIDIA's website.

2) Extract the installer to C:\NVIDIA - Close installer after extraction. It is not needed now any longer.

3) Find NV_DISP.inf and open it in notepad.

4) Look at the models of cards listed. Choose to edit one that is closest to yours.

5) Open device manager. Right click on standard vga or your video card and choose properties. Details tab. Change drop down to hardware ids. The second line down is of interest here.

6) In the .inf, scroll to the bottom [Strings] section. Again, look for most similar desktop model. Change the beginning part to match what you found in last step 5. For example:

NVIDIA_DEV.0421.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT"

and you have 8400M GT, change it to

NVIDIA_DEV.0426.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT"

7) Now look up higher in the .inf and search for the number you edited. In this case, "0421&q... Read more

Hi there,

I'm running a P850-KVE series laptop with the Nvidia Geforce 640M installed.

I believe it needs "proprietry" driver support - as downloading from Nvidia will just throw the fact that no compatible hardware is found. Is there a way to circumnavigate this - or is there any chance that Tosh will eventually update the driver?

I'm aware graphic cards change their drivers often - but ultimately as I'm using the laptop for gaming/faffing around additional features such as power saving etc aren't greatly important to me - where as having a better experience with the driver is.

I've looked at a website that claims to offer modified INF files to run the new drivers and a) I don't entirely understand the process involved and b) I don't want to cause harm to the system either!

Thanks for any advice.


Answer:Satellite P850-KVE - Nvidia 640M mobile driver update - none available


It?s a known fact the notebook manufacturers uses own modified drivers. Such drivers are modified for mobile usage. So its always recommended to use such drivers. The usage of drivers from graphic chip manufacturers would lead to higher performance but also to higher heat dissipation and to high temperature levels.
So what to do?

If your notebook runs properly with the current graphic card driver, don?t try to update it.
If you need an update because of gaming compatibility issues, well, in such case you could try to use an driver from nVidia page.
But the usage of such drivers is your own risk?

The installation of such drivers should be done via device manager.
There you could use an Advanced installation procedure which would allow you to pick up the driver files in the folder which you have downloaded from nvidia page.

At work we are using M9 laptops with the Nvidia graphics card.

We have these laptops docked on Mobile extension hardware

I set the laptop up to display to two external monitors which works well, until we want to undock the laptop for when the laptop are needed to take home.

When they switch back on the laptop it will appear as the secondary screen and wont be useable.

I was wondering if there is any settings that I can change to make it display the two external monitors when docked and display just the laptop screen when undocked.

I am aware that there is the display device change utility but this doesnt offer two external monitors it only offers external/internal.

We are running Windows XP.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Tecra M9 - Nvidia Dual Screen Mobile extension problem

Do you have the latest BIOS installed?
Have you installed the latest Display Driver, Common Modules, and Mobile Extension software? (download them from the Toshiba website)

Have you tested it with a fresh Toshiba installation of XP (by running the factory Recovery)?
Maybe it a software/driver problem if you have a generic installation of XP installed.

NVIDIA is ready to deliver on last week's promise

When we think of notebook computers which use Intel Pentium Dual Core, Core 2 Solo, or Core 2 Duo processors, the systems are usually paired with an Intel Northbridge and Southbridge. Intel hopes to carry on this tradition with its Centrino 2 platform which is slated to launch during the summer.

NVIDIA, however, has plans of its own when it comes to mobile platforms for Intel-based notebooks. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang recently called Intel out on its integrated desktop/mobile graphics performance. Huang even went so far as to say that NVIDIA would "open a can of whoop ***" when it comes to its upcoming products.

It appears that NVIDIA's first few cans of "whoop ***" are just now leaving the factory and they are labeled MCP79. MCP79 is a new single-chip integrated chipset for "small form factor" notebooks according to NVIDIA. Each variant of MCP79 incorporates a DX10-capable GeForce graphics controller supporting Shader Model 4.0, NVIDIA's VP3 video processor, and support for Hybrid Power/Hybrid SLI/Hybrid Performance.

In addition, MCP79 features a single-channel TMDS interface for HDMI 1.2, support for a 1066 MHz FSB, 800 MHz DDR2, 1333 MHz DDR3 memory support, 3 Gbps SATA/eSATA, NVIDIA DriveCache (similar to Intel Turbo Memory), an NVIDIA GbE controller, High Definition Audio, TPM 1.2, and up to 20 PCIe 2.0 lanes.
