  1. BTW - I tried disabling my onboard APU (is it an APU?) in the Device Manager. But my GPU still didn't work. However, I haven't tried the BIOS thing yet. But I don't know if I even have that option.
  2. Sorry it took so long to reply, bro. I'm back home now. So my motherboard model is an Acer Aspire M3450 And my integrated graphics is ATI Radeon HD 4250 Alright, so what can you tell me now with that information?
  3. All I get is the Acer splash screen on my monitor. Then it beeps a short beep one time. Then 10 seconds later it beeps another short beep. Then my screen goes black.
  4. I tried everythiiiing. I plugged the monitor into the graphics card using the DVI-D cable first. Then I plugged the monitor into the graphics card using a VGA cable. Then I tried plugging the monitor in using a different port (my card has 2 ports). Nothing works!
  5. Oh, and my specs are: CPU - AMD FX-4100 PSU - VIOTEK 550W MOBO: Acer Aspire M(something) RAM: 8GB OS - Windows 10
  6. To make a long story (fairly) short: I bought a GTX 950 last week. I put it in the PCIe slot. My computer wouldn't boot, and it wouldn't even boot into the BIOS. Then I bought a GTX 750ti this week. The same thing happened. My power supply is 550 watts, so that shouldn't be a problem. I'm using the correct display cable (DVI-D dual link). And before you ask, yes, the graphics card is in all the way - the power LED was on, and the fans were spinning. The only problem I can think of is that my BIOS is outdated. I could update my BIOS, but the update would only go to 2012. (right now the current version is 2011). ...So before I downgrade to an older GPU, a 500 series, maybe you guys have some bright ideas to make my 750ti work?
  7. You know, you drop your phone in the toilet. You find out it won't turn on. You cover your phone in rice for a day. Then it works. I know the rice absorbs the water! That part is obvious. But how does it absorb the water from INSIDE of your phone? It's not like the rice can actually get inside your phone because the case and the screen is in the way. So how does this age old trick actually work?
  8. I was bored today and came up with a random idea, but it's probably stupid. What if there were HDD's that you could connect to your PCIe slot? Would that even be possible? I know that people all already upgrading to M.2 SSD's because, apparently, PCIe is faster than SATA. But SSD's typically have lower storage than an HDD (unless you buy an expensive SSD)... But what if you wanted 4 TB of storage? But you also want more bandwidth? Would it work? And there's an expression: "There's nothing new under the sun." I bet someone already thought of that before.
  9. Oh okay! So because GPU's are all different, I can't tell how powerful it is just by looking at the Ghz? That makes sense... But does architecture matter? Like, is there a brand of GPU that has a better architecture than the rest?
  10. Yesterday I posted a topic on this forum asking if a GeForce GTX 950 would be bottlenecked on my pc. Then someone said I should get a Radeon R9 380x instead, because they're better... However, the Radeon has more VRAM but less clock speed. And I thought clock speed usually mattered the most. Basically, I want to play Far Cry 4 on my pc when I get a graphics card (whichever one I decide to get). So which would be better? Radeon R9 380: 4 GB GDDR5, 918 MHz GeForce GTX 950: 2 GB GDDR5, 1.17 Ghz
  11. I want to buy a graphics card soon for gaming (right now I'm just running off integrated graphics). I just wanted to know if the graphics card will be bottlenecked in any way. I'm going to get an MSI GeForce GTX 950 (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-gtx950gaming2g) My PC specs are: CPU: AMD FX-4100 Quad-Core Motherboard: Acer Aspire M3450 Memory: 8 GB DDR3 (dual channel) HDD: 930 GB PSU: 550W I don't THINK the graphics card will be bottlenecked because it's probably not that powerful, but I just want to make sure. Thanks!
  12. Okay, I know people have probably asked this question on LTT about 1,000 times already. But there are a lot of smart people on here and I want your guy's opinions on a good graphics card I should buy on a budget. (I don't need to run high-end games like Crysis, Battlefield, or Skyrim) And I don't want to spend more than $130. I have a computer with an AMD-FX 4100 quad-core 3.60 Ghz CPU, 8 GB of RAM, a 550W PSU, and 1 TB harddrive.
  13. Hey guys, I was just wondering what kind of graphics card I should buy to run a dual monitor setup. But before I do, will a cable splitter work? Because I already have a "Y" shaped DVI-D cable, and I tried connecting it to two monitors, and the only thing that happened was it "duplicated" the image onto both screens. So everything I was doing on my main monitor was happening on my second one. But I want to have it where I can expand both monitors and be able to multi-task. Did I do something wrong? Or do cable splitters not work and I need a graphics card with 2 DVI ports?
  14. I guess I'll just use Avast and stick with Malware Bytes!
