I doubt you'd be able to run just a graphics card by itself via ethernet. But you could connect to another PC using some kind of remote desktop application (VNC, etc). There has been rumblings about being able to connect an external GPU via Thunderbolt or USB 3.1, and AMD says they want to make a standard for it: ...

Maybe you could connect a second video cable to the monitor from the same PC, trick it into thinking there's 3 monitors. You would have to switch though. I have a monitor I use with 2 PCs, so one or the other gets dual monitor. When I used a (cheap $10 with remote) HDMI switch, Windows 7 would detect the change and switch all my apps around. So I ...

I believe VirtualGL might help you with this - it allows you to run the graphically-intensive program on device and view the results on another.

Not with ethernet, but with PCIe and Thunderbolt. This article breaks down the external GPU (eGPU) landscape well. A number of companies sell PCIe/Thunderbolt enclosures. Some are limited by Thunderbolt's power, some have their own power. MSI GUS II using Thunderbolt and limited to 150W. Akitio Thunder2 PCIe Box using Thunderbolt 2, but only provides 25W. ...

The closest you can come to what you want is, if you're gaming via Steam, to use the in home streaming option to use your network to route the display from the a gaming desktop to your laptop and user input from the laptop to the desktop running the game. This would require a full desktop somewhere in your home instead of just a laptop + external GPU; but ...

Try looking at this previously answered question for connecting a pci device via usb Adaptor that allows me to use a PCI card via a USB connection As for connecting pci via ethernet, NO

It is not clear what you intend to use as primary device. The Laptop? or would an adapter that connects the devices also be acepted? In the latter case the Steam Link device would exactly do this (transfering GPU rendered data over ethernet and just provides them to an outputmedium.)

Not by Ethernet, but PC Mag ran a story last Sept on using a gaming card with a laptop connected via PCIe adapter card, Express Card, or Thunderbolt for Macbooks. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2984716/laptop-computers/how-to-transform-your-laptop-into-a-gaming-powerhouse-with-an-external-graphics-card.html The author uses a 2011 Thinkpad and under $200 ...

Likelier option may be PCI-to-USB. Might be a smarter move. If you don't have a free USB slot: Plug something out! Or get a hub.

If you have no technical skills, then the easiest way to break this down is simply: does your graphics card have an Ethernet port? As far as I know, there is no adapter capable of adding an Ethernet port to a graphics card. If you simply want to beef up your laptop with an external graphics card, there does happen to be a solution for that, though it's ...

Connecting a GPU by Ethernet is like connecting your PS3 controller to the PS/2 keyboard port: sounds like it's trying to fix a problem but the solution turns out to be completely outlandish and impractical. (Granted, if you can pull it off, you'll gain more popularity as that one crazy guy.) That said, I advise you not to try to do this because the ...

Probably not at commodity pricing for another few years. The current offerings are all high-end, using 10/40 Gbps connections and Nvidia Tesla cards. Even then, it's not directly usable for gaming or graphics, but more for CUDA processing. e.g. http://www.chelsio.com/gpudirect-rdma/

No. Chances are very slim that your laptop has a 10 gigabit ethernet adaptor - its uncommon on high end desktops. You'd also need some clever hardware to translate between PCI-e to ethernet, and the latency, oh the latency. You have a device which is typically put as close to the processor as possible with 16 dedicated pci-e lanes right into it, and you'd ...

Your computer's glitchy performance is characteristic of video RAM artifacts. If the RAM in your graphics processor is failing, sometimes just a small fraction of the RAM goes bad while the rest of the RAM continues to work properly. This results in the part of the operating system that was being stored in that RAM malfunctioning. Sometimes as a result of ...

VGA is an analogue standard which tends (in my experience) to look less sharp than a digital connection such as HMDI, DVI or displayport. So from a quality point of view, you may be better switching to HDMI. I don't believe that VGA vs HMDI will affect the framerate. Your performance issues are more likely to be affected by your screen resolution settings. ...

If you can't install the latest driver, you can install the Intel Driver Update Utility that will attempt to detect and download the best driver available. Also, you can install the official driver from Acer support page for your laptop. This isn't the best thing to do, because these drivers are older versions that might have incompatibilities with some ...

Having tested a Motherboard powered GT 730, and confirming that it works, I connected a meter to my PSU. It was indeed not providing sufficient power. Replaced it under warranty, and everything is now working.

I figured it out by myself after reading a dozen of retarded answers from people all proclaiming that they have knowledge, and know what they are talking about. They all said no it cannot be done, but one guy posted this: Running on an Asus Motherboard, Go to Bios -> Advanced -> System Agent Configuration -> Enable both integrated graphics and GPU -> set ...

Most motherboards disable the onboard graphics when an external graphics card is detected. In most cases, there is no way to enable the embedded graphics with a external GPU installed. Your best bet is to drive both monitors off of the graphics card, if that isn't possible, you will most likely have to replace the graphics card. This post and the ...

All Intel HD Graphics are integrated, meaning they reside on the CPU chip instead of a separate card. If you have a dedicated card, like the GT 650M, then the computer will always default to that and you should be OK.

When you are running a DVI port video card with an HDMI to DVI cable, it runs in single-link DVI mode and the cable doesn't have the bandwidth to drive your 2560x1440 pixel monitor. You need a dual-link DVI cable with no HDMI adapters at any point in the chain so that two DVI channels are used, OR you need a native HDMI source capable of supplying the ...

I have a u2713hm and had the same problem. I am using a DVI-D cable but it was a cheap one so have ordered something more premium, i'll try that when it arrives. In the meantime I managed to get a decent picture by going into the Nvidia control panel > change resolution > customise and dropped the refresh rate 1Hz at a time and testing the new setting. ...

Mostly, this error is caused by GPU heat, Windows shuts down (block) the GPU to prevent it from heat damages. So, cooling the GPU and lowering some NVIDIA settings could fix this issue. For the settings matter, you can follow the following instructions : Setting up your Nvidia settings: Open Nvidia Control Panel and go to Manage 3D Settings Click on ...

According to you Notebook model specs, you graphics card is AMD R7 M270 The issues is you are manipulating by your own the graphics settings First, delete all what you modified by using AMD's special software. Download and run AMD CleanUp Utility to erase all trace of AMD/ATI drivers/Software. Then Download and install Lastest Stable AMD's Driver

The issue lies with the cable. This cable is a DVI-D Dual Link cable with a max resolution of 2048x1536. Please see the following image for further information regarding cable types. You will need to graduate your graphics card to use HDMI 1.3, 1,4 or DisplayPort as well as the monitor to achieve what you want. Your monitor's native res is 2560x1440. You ...

This happens when you get excessive use of GPU such as you opened more videos program, movies, and games. So this is normal. The display driver stopped responding and has recovered is is mainly happened above Windows Vista. There are several reasons: Your graphic card driver is outdated, it remind you to update the graphic driver. You opened more videos ...

There is also a thermal paste you can use instead of thermal pads. It's name is K5-PRO. It is the only one I know that can replace thermal pads. I've used it for a couple of years now on my laptops and it does wonders. Has anyone else tried it? There are also some videos you check out if you want on youtube in case you don't know how to replace the pads. ...

TL;DR New power supply solved the problem. So the problem is solved. Problems in my PC subsided over two or more days and everything works just fine. In the meantime, my uncle's power supply burned out and after installing a new one, it is all fine. There was a driver update in this time too, but we tried to test it with older drivers and it does not behave ...

I have a similar hardware setup (my motherboard is an Extreme6, but otherwise identical) and I dealt with an issue that I suspect you're also experiencing. Does this sound like your bluescreen message? SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (igdkmd64.sys) If so, it's an issue I'm seeing a lot with computers that have ASRock Z77 motherboards. What's ...

Firstly, I have to admit that I was completely wrong about the Nvidia drivers causing the issue, the timing of the update was just coincidental. After many clean installs of windows, drivers, software etc., I found that Dxdiag was working fine until I installed a trial version of FL Studio from Image-Line. Immediately after the install on 3 tests with a ...

With a bit of reasoning and the help of some users in the comment section of my question I quickly came to the conclusion that my ghraphics card just died of old age. Installed in March 2011, it lasted around 5 years, and that's no surprise since that I used to use it quite a lot to play computer games etc. The red lines and random colored pixels make me ...

I fixed the issue in a very bizarre and unintentional way. I tried to install the proprietary nvidia drivers by following this tutorial and performing dnf install akmod-nvidia "kernel-devel-uname-r == $(uname -r)". I'm not sure if I installed the wrong drivers, or if it conflicted with nouveau, but it resulted in an error message upon reboot. I had to ...

DVI-VGA converter might be bad or cables not 100% properly connected into it (look for bent pins). Try replacing it. This is likely the issue. Make sure your graphics card is securely plugged in and set properly in the case. Try switching cables. Try connecting to an alternate monitor. Try moving graphics card to another x16 slot of your motherboard has ...

After some additional information from the OP, it seems that the problem was that he had two monitors connected to the internal graphic card and one to the additional GTX. As he changed the connection to have two monitors connected to the additional GTX and only one to the internal graphic card - the problem disappeared. My assumption is (an only an ...

So, is using a cpu without an integrated graphics card not a "wise" choice in any case? The quick answer is: No, you do not need integrated CPU Graphics (If I understand the double negative in the question). Longer answer: As long as you have sufficient cooling for your system, you should not see a real difference in CPU operations, except in the ...

If you keep it cool, it will be fine. (Same goes for a non-OCed version) And yes, you can underclock it if you wish. You can use EVGA Precision X16, or MSI Afterburner to monitor the temps.

The Elitebook 8470p/8570p came with either AMD Radeon or Intel graphics, not both, you have one or the other unlike some notebooks who contain both and use a switchable graphics technology. Intel drivers are loaded, they recognize the chipset as Intel 4000. That is what you have No, it is not possible to "upgrade" the graphics. The graphics subsystem is ...

Well. It seems that the issue wasn't about the drivers but it had something to do with my bios. I Updated my bios on my Pegatron A15, and it worked just fine.

I wonder if there is anyway I can make this system boot. Easy. Turn on power. Done. The system should start, run its firmware (probably BIOS given the age of the system) and try to load the bootloader from whichever target is configured in the BIOS. Now, without graphics this is where it get tricky. Most BIOS implementations on consumer motherboards ...

Go to "Switchable Graphic Application Setting" (bottom of your screenshot) Then change the setting of the apps that you want to use dedicate graphic to "High Performance" Hit Apply It should be running on dedicate graphic now.

Try downgrading the driver from version: 364.72 - while somewhat alarmist - this article suggests that that specific release is buggy. I believe I had 361 earlier and it was fine. I'm personally not having issues with 364 either, but my guess would be the previous version should be fine for now.

Are you using BatteryBoost? NVIDIA BatteryBoost extends battery life by limiting the maximum frame rate. This reduces the load on the GPU and therefore power consumption. You should be able to adjust or disable this feature in GeForce Experience.

Did you try just switching to a different "console", with CTRL+ALT+F1 through F8? Those usually switch screen size/graphics modes and could throw a "reset" like command to the monitor. Sometimes CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE is set to kill or restart the window manager too, it may cause a "reset" also. PS. Doing a pull-the-plug power off is terrible for most ...

I can see where you're coming from - why spend good money just to see if something works. Unfortunately, the only way to test if your graphics cards work (and, not only that, but if they work reliably under stress and over time) is to install them into a properly configured, compatible PC. That includes using a compatible and compliant power supply. If you ...
