Yes it will. I have the same setup and i just upgraded to 8gb of ram. The way AMD A4, A6, A8, A10 work is that the cpu and gpu are one and share system ram. This is called an apu. So even though it says 4gb really your getting 3.5ish with .5gb going to the gpu portion of the apu. When I upgraded to 8gb 1gb went to the apu automatically, the rest went to the ...

The only thing adding more ram will likely affect is the loading time between areas of the game. The more ram you have the more areas that can be kept "in memory" and will have faster access times. FPS is very tightly linked to the performance of your video card above any other factor, using a laptop you do not have many options for improving that.

A MXM V3.0 card can be replaced, that is true. Carefull: They come in 2 formfactors, A and B and the B modules might not fit if your current is an A. But your laptop can only handle a GPU with a TDP of 75W with it's cooling (so says the service manual) and with the 675M it is already running on the edge. It gets bloody hot already. Any faster GPU will ...

It seems quite possible, however I would recommend choosing an upgrade with the same or closest TDP, to avoid issues.

Check the cable is compatible with 4k: http://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/hdmi_2_0/hdmi_2_0_faq.aspx#119 Does HDMI 2.0 require new cables? No, HDMI 2.0 features will work with existing HDMI cables. Higher bandwidth features, such as 4K@50/60 (2160p) video formats, will require existing High Speed HDMI cables (Category 2 cables).

You do know that a TV is not a monitor right? Just because it supports output from HDMI, and your PC does output to HDMI does not mean a TV will give you the image a monitor would. This is a common misconception. A TV is made to show video content, not pixel perfect content. Some TV's will do it better than others, but a monitor will always be a lot better ...

The simplest solution for you is to just buy one DVI to HDMI adapter (~5$ on amazon) and plug into one video card. As mentioned by Brad, mirroring is an easy thing for a single video card to do but not 2 video cards.

"System interrupts" isn't really a process, even though it appears in the "Details" tab lists of processes. Interrupts are not charged to any particular process. Task Manager just displays it that way to give it a label. A high interrupt rate is normally caused by one of: An I/O device with a lot of activity. The commenter asked if your disk was very ...

In the general case, no. In the specific case, it would depend on exactly what the artifact is. If you're talking about purely display corruption, most likely "No." But if the hardware is causing driver issues, "Maybe." As a diagnostic tool, this would be mostly-meaningless. "Mostly" because there IS the possibility of comparing known-bad screenshots ...

My periodic laptop fixerupper in mainly focused on making sure I don't have any heating issues, as my laptop has a beast of a GPU compared to its cooling. What I do is screw it open and: - Clean out all filters with compressed air - Take out the fan, and give it the same treatment (be sure to disconnect its power first, so that you don't induce power ...

This is weird, installing drivers on windows should still let you see the boot sequence... Try this: Remove the battery from the motherboard a few seconds. This will force to load the default setting of the bios setup.

I calculate 408W (12V * (16 amps + 18 amps)) on your 12V rails, which is the rail your GPU will use. It probably can't actually do that do to efficiency challenges, which explains why the PSU is only advertised as 500 watts. The GPU gets power from the slot it plugs into, and when that's insufficient, is supplemented by up to two extra power connections. ...

Yes, you can set this option by a registry entry. Open the registry. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common. Create a subkey named Graphics. Create a new DWORD and name it DisableHardwareAcceleration and set its value to 1. Hope this helps.

Your best option here, assuming you want to continue with your mentioned configuration, is simply to ensure that your power settings allow for the additional graphics card to power itself down when not in use. I would advise using maximum power savings for your situation, though if you notice any issues with excessive graphic delay during normal us I would ...

Just remove that brass stud on which you are installing the motherboard. That small bump on which you are inserting the stud does the job of the stud. The brass studs are used in chassis which have a flat motherboard tray. Your chassis already have those small elevation for installing the motherboard, there is no need for using those studs. Just align your ...

I had an old Gateway monitor that decided to go on me and flickering, lines, and banding where all telltale symptoms. I'd try it on another monitor for sure. Worst case, you can now split screen. Best case, you have a new monitor to replace one on its way out. If you know anyone with a monitor that is known to be in fine shape, try them first.

Have we tested any of the cards in a secondary computer? Are we testing the computer on different monitors or the same monitor every time? If we have and all these cards have legitimately failed, I'd recommend investing in a new power supply. Corsair makes incredibly solid power supplies (As a rule, don't go cheap on your power supply. It's arguably the most ...

Try change vsync to always on. I believe the default setting is application control. Following is instruction from Intel website: http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-034107.htm Online opinion/result of vsync effect on non-gaming graphic performance varies, but doesn't hurt to try.

I agree with Dave. I'm not familiar with the Virtual Worlds 3D design software, but check the computer specifications of your software to find your limitation bottleneck. Next time that you are producing a JPEG, try to open the Windows Task Manager to check if your CPU and RAM usage. I might help you to understand your problem. Since this is a rendering ...

Not enough rep to just post this is a comment. Have you tried the card in another slot? I've had motherboards that only let me put my graphics cards in either the closest or farthest slot from the CPU. In fact, my current system only boots with it in the farthest away slot. Otherwise, the only obvious answer would be that the graphics card is dead. The ...

OK, an embarassingly simple solution - only one of the two DisplayPort cables was connected, so only 4k resolution was available. The UP2715K on-screen display shows two DisplayPort icons side by side, but that doesn't necessarily mean that both ports are connected, only that it will try to use both if possible. So you can successfully drive two UP2715Ks ...

Your hardware does not allow connecting hdmi and vga at the same time. Most hardware even modern ones do not allow this. There is a usb to vga cable though that will allow you to circumvent this and have your third monitor appear simultaneously.

Reinstall the Graphics driver directly from the Manufacturer. Don't install it using Windows Update or by letting the Driver Installer search online.

The screen-size on the Yoga 2 laptop is much larger. Dxdiag shows : Display Mode: 3200 x 1800 (32 bit) (60Hz). As per your tests the Yoga 2 is blazingly fast when using the same resolutions, this is probably a hardware limitation on the performance of the embedded Intel HD Graphics 4400 card. Embedded video controllers are usually much slower than ...

Very few cards today can in theory exceed the x8 3.0 capabilities. In the 260's case, there is no practical difference even if you specifically run tests designed to be able to exceed the specs. So in short, you're fine. A scenario where things would go bad is if there will be significant driver problems with PCI-E bus bandwidth management, but that's in no ...

Taking pity on poor lazy soul and for all future queries along those lines. Yes, it's possible. Just look for "half-height nvidia 730 gt". You can actually put in any one of many GPU cards provided it will not exceed 25W of power consumption (this is max the PCI-e on this system can do) and is half-height card

No, SLI only work for 2 nVIDIA and crossfire for 2 AMD cards. Mixing 2 different cards doesn't work.

The higher resolutions like 3K or 4K , or any resolutions over the usual 1920x1080 or 1920x1200, gets over the bandwidth capability for a single link DVI. The graphics card would have to supply a Dual Link connection. The DVI cables would have to connect completly the dual link connections. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface Without ...

You will find that it's impossible to get into any recovery mode with Windows, no hardware faults present.

At this point the difference between the Intel HD integrated graphics and the nVidia chips is minimal for the kinds of tasks you are considering. nVidia is a better chip and will give you an advantage in the processing of extremely large graphics in a GPU acceleration aware application (Adobe Photoshop is the only one that I know of that will use a ...

GPU wasn't bricked at all. My PCs motherboard just recognized that the GPU have different model (GTX770) BIOS on it and refused to start. When I plugged the GPU to my server, there was nothing wrong with it. I flashed it back to original BIOS and then modded it to match GTX770 specs and everything was alright. Thanks to all of you for help!

Turns out the VGA adapter (on-board) does not support my native screen resolution at 60Hz, and my monitor doesn't support it's own native resolution at 50Hz, which is all the VGA adapter is willing to output. Problem can be solved by forcing a different display resolution from Grub, a safe bet is 1024x768, on grub command line options, add vga=792 Sadly, ...

While Julian's post answers my question, I am posting here the way I manage to use those OSes with two cards.

This is not possible. The motherboard will choose one of the cards as the primary and the POST information will appear there always. What might be possible, assuming you have 2 monitors, is if your secondary monitor has two inputs, you could either take a second output from the primary card (if it has 2 connectors) or use a splitter cable to feed the ...
