NVIDIA GTX 970 problems

So I got a nvidia GTX 970 as a gift from my father and I had a HP ENVY 1420 T desktop computer. Can someone tell me what Power suply I need?



This power supply has a maximum rating of 250 watts so that will not be enough.

Try the Corsair CX500 , or CX600.  The CX600 is on sale right now is a better buy.

BTW - Specifications for the h8 - 1420t do not show a 250 watt optional power.

  • GTX 970 problem

    Nice day.

    I recently bought an evga 970 fan gtx type of ebay.

    When I put it in my x 51 r2, it seemed to work well. But for some reason, my computer didn't register as a gtx 970. In my view, that he classified as a general or standard player, or something like that.

    All of a sudden my computer acted upward. A bunch of icons disappear. And in closing, the sleep option mode disappeared. (I use windows 8.1). When I rebooted, I found myself with a light blue screen (not BSOT), the mouse cursor was the present thing. Alienware loading screen was present.

    I ended up putting my old gtx 745 back in and was forced to renew my PC. It works again.

    Can someone help me? Was it because of my gtx 970? Or was it just a problem with windows?

    I will also mention that I was updating my grapgics driver 4600 HD Intel (r) when this happened.


    Remember this computer has an integrated video card (HDMI located in half superior) and the discrete card (located at the bottom of the half), so make sure that you connect the monitor to the discrete card.

    Then try to connect the GTX970 again and just do a clean install of the driver Nvidia 970.

    Let me know how it goes!

  • Illustrator crashes after installation of Nvidia GTX 970 in MAC Pro

    Hi all

    in a cheese grater old mac pro as you and it is a festival of crash in .ai and I would be interested to know if you are also experiencing photoshop bail out completely if you try 'resize' an image?

    I tried several other drivers of web that improved things but always authorized random crashes,


    the only solution that I found (and that's a total of "fix" as abel to get one with some work again finally!) is to disable the gpu acceleration in preferences (not only temporarily using the rocket button or the Preview on CPU option in the menu (, but a STOP appropriate in the Preferences section, same "fix" has been used in Pshop to make it usable as.))

    I was worried that it would mean a totally unnecessary 'upgrade', but coming from a 1 GB card, everything seems still to be a lot better and faster despite disabling the GPU acceleration, perhaps simply because the operating system and all other open applications (not adobe) are able to use the GPU at least partially? and which allows a little more resources elsewhere. Anyway, this isn't a total waste, and I can now work on files that have been previously direction buy me a new imac instead of the mac pro upgrade one last time... (which turns out to be a blessing, because it seems to imac users have problems too).

    the 'upgrade' was essentially a downgrade effect for me in the aftermath, as even though it have 4 x the power of the previous card, Adobe have totally ruined the options found in the application, which means that what was once a system (even with 1 GB) which was capable of an overview of the 'real time' virtually no matter what if you waited so that it runs through a reading of frame by frame 'green line '. , has now turned into an application that can only run previews in real time by jumping the executives, it's a joke...

    hope get you it sorted, and I hope that nvidia will give us more options driver soon?

    or adobe could remedy the situation! Ha ha, that's a good joke to put end to now I think...

  • XPS 8910, bi-ecrans, Nvidia GTX 970?

    I just got a new 8910 XPS, well. But the video card (Nvidia GeForce GTX 970) only on the card, DVI - D video output. I want to connect a second monitor, DVI - D or VGA input. There are a lot of other jacks on the rear panel, several HDMI, DP (DisplayPort). Are all the HDMI outputs and the DP for a second monitor?

    There is only a single HDMI output port on the back of the chassis, #4. #3 is the DP (DisplayPort) aboard.

    Because there is not a "Multi screen" option in the Bios. This means that if a video card is added (GeForce GTX 970), cannot use the embedded outside DP or HDMI ports for monitors.

    You must attach two monitors to the GeForce GTX 970 addition.

    The Dell OEM GeForce GTX 970 has the following video ports =
    DVI - I
    HDMI 2.0

    So if #2 monitor has only DVI and VGA ports, you will need to connect to the HDMI port on the GeForce GTX 970.

    GeForce GTX 970 DVI - I-->--> #1 monitor DVI DVI to DVI cable to
    GeForce GTX 970 out HDMI--> HDMI to DVI cable--> #2 monitor DVI in

    You can buy the HDMI cable to DVI at Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc.

  • NVIDIA GTX 970 will work for the use of CUDA with Adobe Premiere CC 2015?

    So it's my graphics card: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00R3NK2LE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8 & psc = 1

    I don't think that I am currently using Nvidia CUDA with Adobe first CC 2015. My card is compatible with this feature?

    Also, if the answer is "Yes", when I install drivers Nvidia CUDA, I uncheck the display driver? Since I also use my rig for games, I want to make sure I'm not downgrading my display driver. Or is the necessary display CUDA driver?

    Thank you.

    It will work very well.

    You only need the CUDA for Mac pilot.  The normal display driver has everything you need for Windows.

  • Dell XPS 9100 compatible with Nvidia GTX 980/970?

    All the world either of these new cards video 980/970 series installed in a dell xps 9100? Or whether they will work with the 9100, in particular motherboard/bios original card?

    I plan to upgrade my studio xps Dell 9100 (2010 I7 930 12 GB of ram, motherboard Dell 05DN3X Intel X 58 Intel ICH10R) with a new video card in replacement of the Radeon HD 5870. My choice of card is the new Nvidia GTX 970.

    The GTX 970 and 980 GTX are based on the new Maxwell Nvidia cards with high specifications on page and good price. While they are not suitable for the power of the XPS 9100 (two GTX cards consume less energy than the 5870), I don't know if my original xps 9100 motherboard (with a bios updated from July 2014 on the site of dell driver) is compatible with the gtx 970. BIOS office 8700 recent Dell was not compatible/created a problem of black screen, and Dell has released a updated Bios updated for the 8700 in December 2014 that apparently works fine now with the 980/970 series. I wouldn't drop the $350 on a video card that didn't work with my 9100

    I use the Dell 9100 for video editing (Sony Vegas Pro 13, Hitfilm 3, NewBlue and other programs based GL/CL) works more 3d animation with iclone (who prefer Nvidia). I could probably get another year or two out of it with a newer video card... otherwise I'll put all useful to a construction of the self.

    I'd appreciate any comments on it. Maybe Chris from Dell of this forum would know that he shares the fix for dell bios enabled the 980 work with 8700.  Thanks to Chris if he answers or if he can answer my question gtx 970 for me and other 9100 owners.

    Just this moment installed a MSI gtx 970 in my 3 1/2 years, xps 9100. Original motherboard. The only thing I've really updated over the years is the memory.

    Processor Intel Core i7-960 @3. 2 GHz (8 MB L2 Cache)
    16 GB OF RAM, DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-12800
    NVIDIA GeForce (r) GTX 970 4 GB
    Dell XPS 9100 desktop
    Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) SP1

    525 Watt POWER supply was more than enough. You must use both the point 6 and point 8 plugs not one or the other. Biggest problem was to find a second source of power. The 6 + 2 plug, but don't think that the other was there. He was and is buried in the middle of a wire harness. A sheet of plain to 6 points. Just enough.

    It works like a charm. Not at all of the start-up problems

  • No performance difference using Nvidia GTX 1070 against 970 GTX?

    I've been running a Nvidia GTX 970 on a machine Windows 10 with Skylake 4.0 GHz 64 GB ram and Lightroom/Photoshop CC. I recently acquired a GTX 1070. Does anyone know if using the 1070 GTX would make any increase in performance over using the GTX 970 in Lightrooom or Photoshop CC? Also the faster architecture for a 1070, 8 GB of DDR5 ram memory and a 970, 3.5 GB DDR4 games. Don't know if this makes a difference in CC as Adobe is not write code to take FULL advantage of the GPU. This is probably a question for engineers from Nvidia, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

    Thank you.

    lol... not even close.
    Adobe has really bad support GPU.

    I've spent a GTX 970 to a GTX 1080 and I don't see any improvement in speed at all in lightroom.

    for photoshop im not sure at 100%. I Don t use 3D in photoshop.

    with my daily work (edition 24-50MP images and panoramas more) I Don t notice a difference either.

    Maybe there are a few features that operate more quickly when compare you to them.

    but noticeable when faster with PS... nope not my experience.

  • P6769 UK: card Geforce GTX 970 of GTX 550ti graphics upgrade

    My husband bought a HP PC, because I work for HP.  The Geforce GTX550ti card worked perfectly on the P6769 UK PC running Windows 7; He bought the new card GTX 970 but couldn't make it work with Windows 7, so decided to put the old card back in and install Windows 10 to see if that would solve the problem, which was not. The old card works well running Windows 10 but not the GTX970. Despite extensive research and talk to the 'experts' that he has not yet found a solution - he has a terminal illness, so I would really appreciate help from someone in the forum to help him to enjoy what should be the great graphics for the short time he has left. Please respond to this message and personal email address [personal information deleted] If you can help.


    The NVIDIA GTX 970 will not work on your PC. Video in graphics card BIOS and the BIOS is your PC are not compatible.

    I suggest that you are looking for an old graphics like the NVIDIA GTX 660. I've used both the TI 550 and 660 and the 660 is a far superior graphics card.

    Thanks for posting on the forum.

  • Alienware X 51 R2 - what Miss me to upgrade to GTX 970 FTW


    I have gtx GPU 745 and I received a new GPU, the gtx 970 FTW with fan double. We read different forums and sometimes with contradicting information and I must say that I am a little lost in how to change.

    Our main questions are:

    (1) the power R2 board optimized for this dual fan gtx 970 or should I expect to observe problems due to high temperature in the case? We have seen that it seems to be a technical problem with the 970 like gtx with the double sending hot air fan inside the case compared to the fan only. Replacement is not an option, so I'd like t understand the penalty for having the double fan.

    (2) with respect to the power supply. At this moment we have a 240W. Just switch to 330w? We have seen some forums saying that it should require less energy and 330w should be fine, but when you are looking for the GPU to places to buy it is said that it takes min 500w. So I am confused.

    (3) for the records, we went just to 10 WINDOWS

    Is there something else I'm missing? What should be the final configuration?

    Thank you in advance.


    It has not validated the Nvidia GTX 970 as an option for GPU upgrade to R2 of Alienware X 51 system. As a result, we cannot ensure that this GPU upgrade will work properly with the system. However, some of our customers have tried this upgrade successfully. Click here to see another thread for more information on this upgrade.

    Because I don't want to buy a card that only will NOT WORK AT ALL with my CC 2014!

    Thanks in advance


    Now the 900 series cards are tested very well with the MPE engine and acceleration of time. I have not seen any limitation, including the effects. So I don't know where people are facing problems. Acceleration of EI is Raytracer and on track. Do not expect in the Nvidia drivers to maintain the AE version has even and I would be surprised if the new maps to work with it since Adobe is emerging. Very little use at this stage and C4D with octane is much better especially for GPU acceleration.



  • HPE-H8-1010: Gtx 970 stop start

    I recently bought a Msi Gtx 970 and it arrived yesterday. However, after upgrading my power to 750 watts and the installation of the graphics card, the computer started and froze on the splash screen for hp. I have triple everything checked, updated my bios and tried to make the map work for consolidated five hours, but nothing helps. Does anyone know what could happen and how can I get my graphics card to work?


    Most of the NVIDIA GTX 970 graphics cards will not work in your PC with a few exceptions.  What is the model number of the MSI graphics card?

    Check with MSI and see if there is a cure.

  • Problems: upgrade cars - msi Geforce GTX 970 graphics

    I recently bought a Geforce GTX 970 of msi graphics card.

    The problem is that my pc will not go through the HP-splash screen that opens before the windows splash screen.

    My electricity supplier has enough power enough.

    Help me please!

    HP motherboards support even msi graphics cards?

    If this is not the case, what companies do support?


    Your PC was shipped only with a version 7 of HP BIOS so the NVIDIA 970 isn't going to work. There is no provision in a BIOS version 7 to deactivate or activate the secure boot or activate the UEFI.  You would see these selections on the Security tab in the BIOS if there is this selection.

    Try one of these models NVIDIA GTX 660.  You only need a power supply of 450 watts.

  • GeForce GTX 970/980 on XPS 8700

    Hello, I have XPS 8700, which came with OEM GTX 745. I think it passes to the Geforce GTX 970 or 980. These word on 8700 XPS video cards?

    I am particularly concerned, because system recommended for 970 power is 500 W to nVidia's specifications, total power of XPS8700 is 460 w. Has anyone installed GTX 970 or 980 on 8700 XPS?

    Hey Ryocchin,

    The GTX970 or the GTX980 will work in terms of being able to connect through PCI-express port.  Where you might encounter a problem is with the physical size of the map.  I know that some 970 models can be 12 inches, I guess the 980 years can grow according to the solutions of cooling for these exotic cards.

    The other piece of the puzzle is to replace the power supply.  A 460W pourrait be authorized as a basis of suppliers GPU their system requirements on the assumptions made about the power draw of the entire system & always shoot a bit on the high side.  But if your computer is a few years old is probably not turn off 460 watts.  So I recommend a new power supply.  EVGA, Corsair, XFXm and Antec have all been good for me over the years.  If you want to simulate a modular PSU that you'll save tangles of cables.

    So those are the two big things to look for: physical space for the graphics card (although I'm sure that a XPS8700 will hold a 970 without problem a lot) and a new power supply.

    The Dell service manual is here if you want to get an idea of what it looks like to replace components:

    I hope this helps!  Let us know what other questions you might have.
