Having an interesting issue with my brother's GPU

#1BIGGESTPS3FANPosted 2/23/2014 10:51:03 AM
Well, it's interesting to me, anyways. >_>

I sold my friend my old PC, and since it doesn't have a graphics card, we took my brother's 780 out so we could play BF4 together. Upon installing it, he tried to play BF4 and it told him his PC didn't meet the minimum specifications. Interesting, because upon starting the game with HD4000 graphics, it worked fine. So we tried Magic. Same thing, told him he didn't meet the minimum requirements. Decided to see what happens if we tried something stupid like Solitaire... It told him that it might run slowly.

So I download Speccy and see what the GPU was being detected as, and it says 14MB Standard Nvidia VGA Graphics Adapter. wat

We are running current drivers, btw.

Check the BIOS and make sure the IGP is disabled and it's set to PCIE, not auto, etc

Then remove the drivers completely, use

http://www.guru3d.com/content_page/guru3d_driver_sweeper.html

once all that done, restart, then reinstall, which is the basic steps in trying to fix this, did you do anything yourself or just rush to Gamefaqs to ask this question?

Did you forget to change the monitor cable from the integrated output to the actual video card?

We did do Driver Sweeper and re-install. Also disabled IGP.

Nope. Display pops up on the GPU and everything.

I could almost swear I saw that message a long time ago because I didn't plug in the PSU to the GPU. Check that, but I doubt you forgot that part.

I'll test it on my PC and see what happens.

Did you check device manager?

Windows installs a generic driver for the video card, maybe try to remove that and then drivesweep, reinstall current whql drivers, or maybe a previous version

It displays as a 780 on my PC, so it works fine there.

I did check device manager, and it shows the 780 on there. I don't see any generic drivers.
