[Lenovo ideacentre 310S-08ASR] How to use the CPU integrated graphics?

How to use the integrated graphics card in the cpu? My motherboard has two HDMI and DVI inputs but it doesn't work, how can I use the ATI Radeon R5 integrated in the AMD A9 processor? At the moment I can use the personal computer only with the Nvidia GT730 GPU.

Re: [Lenovo ideacentre 310S-08ASR] How to use the CPU integrated graphics?

Hi @taurus1983

 

You have a switchable graphics on your computer and that there is no way for them to work at the same time. What you can do to activate the  ATI Radeon R5 integrated in the AMD A9 processor is to set the Integrated graphics as the primary video controller through BIOS or you can disable the Nvidia GT730 GPU from the device manager for the integrated graphics card to activate.

 

Option 1. Setting  Primary Video Controller to IGD ( Integrated Graphics Device ).

 To Access BIOS, repeatedly tap  F2 key  from the top most part of the keyboard right after hitting the power button to turn it on (from shutdown) until it gets to the BIOS page.

  • BIOS page 
  • select Device Tab
  • and set the Primary Video Controller to IGD.

Option 2. Disabling the Nvidia GT730 GPU in Device Manager.

  • right click on the windows icon from the bottom left and select Device Manager.
  • Click Display Adapters.
  • right click on Nvidia GT730 GPU and hit disable

 

Option 3. Configuring Intel and Nvidia dual graphics 

  • Right-click the blank space on the desktop.
  • Select NVIDIA Control Panel  
  • Switch between two graphics manually under Manage 3D Settings 
  • Click on Preferred Graphics Processor.

Note: 

Programs supporting 3D can run on switchable graphics (or high-performance NVIDIA processor). Programs supporting 2D can only run on integrated graphics.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

Regards​

Hi Jhay02_Lenovo, the Nvidia GT730 GPU is broken. Is there a way to activate the ATI Radeon R5 with the hardware? I can't access the BIOS because the display didn't receive the video signal.

Hi @taurus1983

 

Disconnect/Remove the Nvidia GT730. The Integrated GPU should automatically kicks in when that is unplugged from the computer. After removing and still having No display try reseating the RAM and the HDD. Try checking/ reseat the cable that connects the Tower and Monitor to make sure that it is seated properly.

 

Let us know how it goes 

 

Regards​

Hi @taurus1983

 

What are the lights that comes on from the computer when you turn it on?

Is the caps lock or the numlock led indicator comes on and off when you hit those keys?

 

Please do try another VGA/HDMI cable or try connecting another monitor to isolate the problem further?

 

Let us know how it goes 

 

Regards​

Only the LEDs of the power and DVD player are on, both the CPU and GPU fans work, but the GPU's fan is very noisy.

Re: [Lenovo ideacentre 310S-08ASR] How to use the CPU integrated graphics?

Jhay02_Lenovo appears to be JUST the person I need....
brand new 90HV  510A-15ICB

want to have both monitors as Full HD
I'm assuming that I need to add a video card; and Jhay02 is providing the exact type of answers I need....

What video card can I add to this registered-with-Lenovo device?


I have read your earlier response regarding the GT1030 2Gb card; but it may not be applicable to my machine.
I have further found notes regarding DDR5 is better; machine memory speed 2400 (platform profile); and a bunch of stuff that is admittedly a bit over my head.  I just need an authoritative answer - hopefully from Jhay02_Lenovo.


Thank you for your help.

(FYI:  I actually bought two of these machines in the last two months... they seem to work not jsut good, but great.  very pleased so far)

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
