ATI Graphics Driver does not work properly

All of a sudden when I play my games on Facebook my computer completely freezes. Reports error saying that the ATI Graphics Driver does not work properly.
I have checked all the updates of Windows, said that I installed all available updates. Help, please!



First manually check the updated drivers with ATI and ask their support and Forums on all known
questions. Use the methods to update the following drivers.

the cause and eliminate problems.

What antivirus/antispyware/security products do you have on the machine? Be one you have NEVER
on this machine, including those you have uninstalled (they leave leftovers behind which can cause
strange problems).

Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

-Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
each installation.

Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
manually by model.

Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
get new manually if you wish.

  • Satellite P200 accidents + message: graphic card driver does not work properly


    hope that this issue has not been covered before, but I've owned a Satellite P200 for 3 years now, and this week, it crashes all the time.

    When it started going down he gave me a few messages in the sense of "your graphics card/driver does not work properly and windows will be arrested to avoid damage.

    It has progressed to the point where now when I turn it on, I have vertical lines running down the screen and the screen flashes on and outside. Within 20 seconds, it restores the BSOD - 'there was a problem and windows will be arrested. Error Page_Fault_In_Non_Paged_Area"then stops.

    I ran a system restore but the problem remains.

    I have a feeling that my graphics card is toast. Is this good? Are there any other options to try? Thanks in advance for any answers.



    Sounds like the GPU problem.
    But try the graphics card driver update.
    Use the most recent driver for your graphics card.

    In addition, clean the fans of portable computers.
    Dust and debris could prevent the cooling fans to turn with the best speed and this could lead to a higher temperature which would lead to overheating.
    Use a jet of compressed air. I also use it and it helps to get rid of dust and debris.

    If this is not enough, then a problem of graphics chip would be possible.

  • Portege Z930 - display driver does not work properly


    We have a Portege Z930 with Windows 7 64 bit in use where the Intel display driver seem to work fine.

    First problem is the slow presentation on screen - if we open a (simple JPG) photo and move the window, the frame window break during the move and showed very weird.

    Then, we have installed a U3.0 dynadock docking for the use of two external displays more. This method works even worse. To the docking station, we used the driver from the CD supplied in the delivery and connect to a USB 3.0 connector.

    On starting switching on 2 screens instead of internally for computer laptop screen does not work - and we use workaround of using an extended desktop on all 3 displays (2 external and internal display for laptop as the third).

    In Internet Explorer, it should turn off GPU Rendering and use Software Rendering rather because otherwise, we observed critical irregularities on the external screens (with 2 Windows Open the screen froze or could not display Windows Mobile). However the display isn't satisfactioning.

    We have tried 3 different versions of the recommended Driver Intel which is also offered by Toshiba to download; We loaded it is there and also 2 versions more (a more recent, one older) Intel directly.

    So, how can we get this working properly?

    Thanks in advance and best regards,
    N. Cochems

    More importantly. Make sure you have Service Pack 1 installed Win7. New laptops have problems running in win7 RTM (without service pack).

    It seems that Windows uses the standard VGA driver instead of the Intel driver. Uninstall all display drivers from Control Panel-> programs and features and then go to the Toshiba website and install the utility Intel Chipset then the Intel display driver, then go to and install the latest DisplayLink driver for the dynadock. The new software v7.xx DisplayLink driver fixes several issues found in v6.xx drivers.

    Verify that the Intel drivers are installed properly in Device Manager.

  • Sat 1900 - CD/DVD drive does not work properly. How to solve this?

    Hello :-)

    I have a Toshiba Satellite 1900, bought in 2003. It has a cd/dvd drive called MAST * UJDA720.

    For the last 3-4 months he was not working properly with movie DVDs. whenever a movie starts, it does not work smoothly, but in stop-and-go. First of all, I had everything again and it works fine, but lately, he never runs well and some DVD doesn't work well at all. Excuse me it I do not explain, I don't have the words in English.

    But maybe someone understands me and can help. My DVD player is dirty? Is there something like a standard CD? Or do I have to give the laptop to a repair shop?

    Thank you in advance, I would like to have my DVD player, back to normal - especially as I don't have a TV.


    Hello, Kerstin

    If you can watch the DVD on the unit I don't think the drive is defective. I have the same unit and still work well. Stop and go while playing DVDs can be caused due to the high utilization of the processor.

    Please try to start the Task Manager and check all running processes. All unnecessary processes can be stopped and on this way, the CPU will go to a lower level. If the antivir software is installed on your unit checking if this software analyzes the HARD disk and stop it.

    These things together can be responsible for stop and go while playing DVD movies.

    Good bye

    Has anyone else found the Equium A300D PSAK2E Windows Vista 32 bit download Toshiba ATI display driver will not download center work? If you choose Run, download causes crash windows Explorer during installation and the upgrade fails, even to save and installation do not install it.

    I tried to get the TV out S-video port work. See the thread on the TV does not. I've tried everything. does anyone else have this problem that Toshiba are not aware of any problems with the S Video TV out not working only not on this machine.

    Thanks Vince

    I ve checked the download from Toshiba Europe site, and there is no problem with the download. The file is approximately 96 MB and I downloaded it for about 40 seconds.

    The question is: how you tried to install the display driver?

    Anyway, who knows how you use the S-Video option and what can be the problem. According to your announcement you didn t get answer from Toshiba about it. Am I right about that?
    To be honest I don't think that there is a problem. The fact is that how to use the cable S-Video with TV is the same for all models laptops.

    Can you please explain to us how you try to see the desktop on your TV with the S-video cable?

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I understand that the webcam on your HP Pavilion 15 laptop does not work.

    Please make sure that you use the following download to install the CyberLink YouCam software for your notebook: Cyberlink YouCam software.

    Can you please tell me if there is a version of the currently installed YouCam software and the webcam works in this software?

    Also, check in Device Manager for devices of imagery for any conflict with the webcam. It should display with no X,!, or? symbols on the appliance.

    You can also restore the laptop to before the show began. You can do this by tapping F11, while the laptop turns on to access the HP Recovery Manager and selecting the restore option.

  • External hard drive does not work properly

    Hi all

    It is a slightly different external HARD drive problem.  I had my faithful media ATMT bin since my first laptop with XP (2003) and I bought it in 2005.  It's a little wobbly as the fan vibrates a lot, but this isn't a problem.  What is the problem, is that I have a windows machine 7 who thinks that drive a need to put in shape, but my previous laptop which has vista on it was absolutely no problem to read the files IN ALL and you can open one of them without a hitch.  I tried to run CHKDSK I:\I (it is labeled as the I drive :) and 7 claims that it is in the format RAW.  I had a look at CHKDSK on my old machine and it is in FAT32, I since changed it to NTFS, but seems to have no effect.  I also tried the hunting of the drivers for the external hard drive, but I come only through links to Amazon as these things are always available.

    I really need to access this drive on my current computer as the older one needs a considerable cooling method to make it work therefore the latest machine.  What I also don't understand, it's that it was working absolutely fine on this machine too until quite recently.  He worked on it that I need, but have not been accessed for a while and so solutions in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much for your time.


    Your drive has reached its copy by date and it works on time taken (if he is stil)

    If this does not work on another PC then it's probably dead.

    You can try the utility disk SeaTools from Seagate to check and see if it can detect and report on the drive

  • ATI graphics card does not work - Pavilion m6 1062er - Windows 7

    I have Pavilion 1062er laptop with ATI 7670 M and Intel 4000 m6.

    I put 'high performance' in the ati Control Panel for all applications updated to latest drivers and BIOS. All games show that they use the video card intel, in dxdiag video intel only is also displayed.

    There is no "switchable graphics - fixed" option in the bios.

    If your bios does not support "Fixed Graphics" then you need to clean your drivers and install unofficial.

  • Satellite P100-221: DVD Super Multi DL drive does not work properly

    Hello world!!!

    the problem is that one day I inserted my CD - RW in drive, launched Nero but failed to remove any previously saved data of him cause I couldn't push the button 'clean' (sorry, not sure he's called this version in English).

    In my computer, where all readers are collected, in the context menu for my drive I couldn't find option to erase the disk. In the properties of the label record disappered (label where I could mark the box: Alow CD recording).

    I also tried to burn many Cd - R with nero, I recorded using multisession with a small amount of data, but after this, I was not able to record something on their cause, they have all been closed and developed, too, I told nero ot not to develop.

    Maybe someone can help me, I don't want to reinstall windows.


    I think that this is not a drive problem but possible it s more a configuration issue between Nero and second burning software.

    I think on many laptops Toshiba sound recording has now been installed.
    This software can be used for disc erasing and finalization.

    Please check the application.
    I put t don't know if this helps but maybe when you remove the sound recording now Nero does not improve.

  • Carpet * a DVD - RAM in Satellite A100 drive does not work properly

    When I insert any type of disc, the drive lights up, but the system cannot access anything on the disc. I tried all the fixes that were shown in the forums, but nothing works. The message I get is: D: / is not accessible. I/o device error. Oddly enough the only disc it reads without any problems is the recovery disk. Unfortunately, a system recovery didn't solve the problem.


    If you're still guaranteed then it would be necessary in your case bring/send your machine to a local toshiba for a hardwarecheckup servicepartner. But even if Don t you out of warranty you should do it because your questions sounds like a hardware failure.

    If you need help finding a service partner so I can give you a link where you can find one that is closest:

  • Portege R100 hard drive does not work properly

    Recently, my computer suddenly started working slowly. I restarted. Then it took 25 minutes for lunch my windows xp Pro. Whenever I tried to launch an app he bugged and restarted again. After scandisk, I decided to reinstall my operating system with the recovery CD, but the computer still runs slowly. For example, when I opened Internet Explorer, I can't move the mouse or do something else while it's loading the content of the page. everything is locked.

    When I tried to run the scandisk, I have the same error (but the folder is always different) like these examples:

    1 Disk Defragmenter cannot continue prescan because there is CORRUPTION in file:

    2 Disk Defragmenter cannot continue prescan because there is CORRUPTION in file:

    What can be the problem? What is a virus or a hardware problem?

    Before beginning the new installation, you can try to repair the system files on the HARD drive.
    -Run CMD
    -use the command chkdsk/p or chkdsk/r.

    For more details of command, you can run chkdsk /? or chkdsk/Help

    But as mentioned above, is the new operating system installation is without danger, but don t forget to make a backup if you use important and data files on the HARD drive ;)

  • After that the computer is idle for a few minutes, you receive an error message. "Vtdispl display driver does not work properly, please restart the computer to solve the problem."

    I rebooted and turned power off the computer several times and always get the same message. The size of the text on the screen and the icons are larger than the way in which they should appear. How can I solve this problem?

    Consult the manufacturer of your so great PC OEM, for example Dell / HP or laptop and install the latest drivers.
