I am on my second high quilty laptop which keeps crashing the graphics card when I use auto cad LT.
First I bought a Dell XPS and it kept craching so I returdned that one and bought a HP pavilion dv7 and the same thing keeps happen with this one as well. I have gone back to a 5 year old Laptop to continue my work.
Does anyone have any ideas.
Are we to guess at your configurations, and what you have done to correct the issue, and are you able to share now:
Exact Windows version included?
Actual Video card installed? Driver version? source of current driver?
Did you use 3DCONFIG command to add updates in LT2012? What was the outcome?
Did you use 3DCONFIG command to just change Hardware Acceleration? If it's on, turn it off. If it's off, turn it on.
Did you turn off Win7's Aero theme?
sorry I should have thought to include more information,
I have today updated both drivers for the two cards that are in this laptop
TM HD Radeon 6490M
Mobile Intel HD Graphics
windows 7 Core i 7
Auto CAD LT 2012
The screen still goes black and then a error comes up saying the amd graphics stopped working but have restarted
3DCONFIG command, look it up in HELP in LT2012: it does two things you've not done before posting, it updates your video card driver (if one is available) from Autodesk, and it also turns on/off Hardware Acceleration in LT2012.
And did you turn off Win7's AERO THEME yet? go with Windows Basic Theme, it solves a lot of problems for some folks, especially laptops.
Changed to basic theme last night and appears to have fixed it. Cant thankyou enough I have had this new Laptop for 5 months and not been able to use it.
Wish I would of ask sooner
LOW-END Minimum Specs.
Out-of-work archi. (with minimum funds) unfortunately needing a new computer. Found a good price on a HP laptop (i5, 2.4 GHz, 6Gb Ram, 614MB DDR3 SDRAM, w/ Turbo Boost 2.0), 3GHz dual core & Win7Premium (64bit). It does NOT have a dedicated graphics card. The internal card is an Intel HD Graphics3000 w/ 1696 MB available graphics memory.
This is not meant to be a graphics work horse. I primarily used AutoCad LT.
BUT, I would also like to be able to run Revit (and Rhino) to practice. It is ok if it takes a little longer to render. I assumed if it would work for Revit, it should also work for LT 2012?
I checked the accepted graphics card list, and REVIT supposedly accepts the Intel HD "family" (with specific drivers), but other websites specifically warn agains Intel integrated cards.
I just want to make sure it will work at all -- not at lightening speed! Any advice?
Thanks in advance!
