system preferences > displays. This should allow you to customize them separately. If you mirror your displays you can optimize for a specific monitor. If you use each as it's own then customizing for both is possible

The R9 270 uses 150W of power. I don't know what other equipment you have in your computer, but it doesn't sound like you will have sufficient power. I recommend at least a 500W PSU for an otherwise standard PC build. If you're not sure how much your computer consumes, try to virtually build the system on http://pcpartpicker.com (including all disks, fans, ...

On the Gigabyte page they state that that GPU requires a 500W PSU with two 6-pin external power connectors. The PSU you link to is only 430W and only has one 6-pin external power connector. Look for PSU with at least 500W and with two 6-pin external power connectors

The clip at the end of the PCI-E slot just helps hold the graphics card in place. There is nothing to worry about as long as the case is stable. You can use any other slot that is on the motherboard without changing any BOIS settings.

If i understand correctly you want to expand your desktop over screen 1 and 2 and then duplicate either of them onto the HDTV. I know you say that you are used to the Catalyst Control Center, but I would suggest for these simple things to use the built in windows "Screen Resolution" control panel. To duplicate a desktop onto your HDTV do the following: ...

Your LCD needs to support DVI-A, DVI-I Single Link, or DVI-I Dual Link. Your monitor only supports analog. Your DVI to VGA adapter by hardware specs is analog only. The only unknown is your monitor and whether it supports an analog mode. DVI was introduced in 1999. It doesn't sound like your LCD is that old, so it might not have DVI-A. You will likely need ...

Most modern monitors should still cope with much lower resolutions even if they have to do some horrible looking interpolation. I would double check that your VGA to DVI cable supports analogue signals. It's possible your cable only supports a digital connection and your rather ancient VGA card is only producing an analogue one..

If you have a VGA port on your monitor, it should work. However, the video card cannot run the monitor at its native resolution (23-inch monitors are generally 1920×1080). 1990s video cards like the 3D Rage Pro simply were not designed to handle resolutions anywhere near full HD, and the notion of "high definition" simply wasn't mainstream back then. ...

I have the same laptop, but with a 7670M AMD graphic card. If you haven't found the solution to this yet, this is what I did(and it worked): Go to Device Manager from control panel. Disable the AMD graphic card. Run Premiere Pro from that config. Enable AMD card again. Premiere Pro runs perfectly fine after that. Hope this helped. Thanks.

In short, NO. Overclocking your chipset will not get you a significant improvement in graphics while playing games. It probably won't even get you a noticeable improvement in graphics. You might get an extra 1-2 fps if you lucky.

Sorted in the end. The Windows "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" Driver seems to be the correct one. After downloading some windows updates and restarting, the problem sorted itself out.

It's strange the new motherboard doesn't ship with the NVidia GPU. However, the Intel GPU is integrated in the CPU, so it should be also present on the old motherboard. The link you give is to another laptop manufacturer, which is not a good idea to take the driver from. It's better to search directly on the specific hardware manufacturer, here Intel. ...

A cursory search for "asus h61me continuous beep" yields plenty of results. It indicates a hardware problem of some kind. Most commonly it seems to be memory-related. Additional possibilities, browsing through forum posts, include a bad power supply / short circuit, or bad SATA/IDE cables, or any other number of issues. I suggest removing one component at ...

Assuming that you know what Adaptive syncing is about, Here is the difference between the two: Nvidia is looking to own the private market with the G-sync technology, where only their graphics cards paired with G-sync supported monitors can perform Adaptive Sync. whereas Amd plans to tread the open-source path, the technology that Amd is planning to use is ...

Although it may have been a fluke - you should definitely return the part for a replacement. As the 8400 GS is a current generation model, NVIDIA should still have this covered by warranty. As far as I am aware - the driver never stops the fan completely - only slows it down. As someone who has used exclusively nvidia card for years now in a clear case, ...

According to page of that HDMI Switch that you are planning to buy, the HDMI version 1.4 is supported. The maximum speed of the data transfer over HDMI is given here, as 8.16 Gb/s. Notice that the speed is measured as Gigabits per second. Now, what you want to render is 2560x1440 at 120hz. Calculating the bandwidth required: 2560 x 1440 x 120 x 24 = ...

Gpu's made for Laptops are expertly designed to fit in a tiny space and make do with less than average laptop cooling. Overclocking is possible but highly unrecommended. It is also not practical to have a hot laptop as it will be uncomfortable to use and may damage other components. Make do with what you have or get a more powerful laptop Gpu.

Nvidia and Amd produce the core gpu. Nvidia also makes "reference cards" which are often entirely made by Nvidia with the manufacturers branding slapped onto it. Companies such as EVGA make their own pcb's to come up with enthusiast products such as gtx 780 KING PIN edition that has a much larger pcb and is capable of liquid nitrogen cooled overclocking.

You could monitor the dedicated gpu's activity with a tool like EVGA Precision X to see if it's being utilized over idle. (Great tool to have even if your not just monitoring) The other thing (and this depends on your configuration) is that an integrated vs dedicated cards usage primarily depends on what is on the monitor it's outputting to. eg Firefox on ...

try setting the main monitor down to 120hz from 144hz. that fixed the throttling problem for me. i have a secondary 60hz monitor as well. I think it has something to do with 144hz + 60hz being wierd and 120hz + 60hz is more in sync.

Try to completely disconnect your graphics card. Then check if you get a video signal from your motherboard. If you still get a black screen then it's your motherboard or your CPU that's the problem. If you do get a signal from the motherboard then it's you graphics card or the PCI slot the graphics card is plugged in to. Try moving your graphics card to ...

Windows 8.1 seems to have problems with switching GPUs sometimes. I'd recommend installing the latest drivers for everything graphics-related but I see you already did/tried that. Usually the OEM (in you case Asus) should provide up-to-date drivers for the installed hardware but they often take their sweet time to release updates. I read that a VBIOS update ...

I had the same problem while ago. I assure you that your AMD card is not working properly, even not showing any problems in device manager.

You can simply just get a cheap S-video to VGA converter for cheap (which I'm sure your 19" monitor would support) for your 3rd monitor output from single card If you specifically need DVI output there are s-Video to DVI converters but they are expensive as they are a scaler box / scan converter, not just a cable / pin convertion (as the s-video output ...

Yes, it could be a kind of liquid damage. Imagine some little drops of liquid are still there or they dried, vaporized just water from them, but left shorting (new current leading tracks).

USB3 is as fast as Thunderbolt when only one card is used.....don't confuse USB2 with USB3.....also Firewire is as slow as USB2, so again, the most economical solution is a USB3 solution. Only problem is I havent' seen many such solutions that take advantage of the USB3 speeds.

Yes, replace your PSU and you should be good to go. I saw the product specifications and power requirements, there's a diffrence of 100W between them.

GPU and CPU fans can run faster on high load. New BIOSes have such functions (e.g. Smart Fan Control) which increase fan RPM when CPU/GPU gets hot, and decrease RPM when it gets cold. So there is nothing strange if your fans run faster. If you think your game can't do it, probably you've got malware with BitCoin miner. Scan you computer for viruses. If ...

UPDATE: It seems for me that the new AMD beta drivers (version 14.6, downloadable here) fixes the problem. At least for me.

I recommend everyone with an AMD card to check them out and see ...

I have this same issue. If you right click CMD and run as administrator, type: powercfg -a. If you see it complaining about VGAPNP.SYS, then the driver you have for your video card does not support the sleep function and you will have to update your driver.

Swapping the GPUs is 1- very risky because the are soldered to the mainboard and 2- almost certainly will not work because unlike CPUs, they don't have standardized sockets, even if they do, the circuits around them will not be the same (a lot of resistors and capacitors won't have the right value) On the other hand, laptops have a PCI-E port, it's ...

The solution has finally arrived, everyone! The card itself was faulty. I found it to be under warranty and had it RMA'd to Gigabyte, where it was returned to me and now works. No visible change on the card, either.
