  1. Graphics card showing i have less memory than advertised?


    Been having tons of problems lately with my graphics card. Narrowed it down to either a PSU or a Physical issue with my GPU.

    While inspecting my current specs to compare with newer products, i came across this saying i only have 2047 of physical ram? Is the issue with my GPU the ram failing?

    I'm assuming this is showing the correct values for what it is, and i'm just misunderstanding it, however i just want to be sure before i pull the trigger on a new PSU or GPU.

    graphics card problems

    Hi,

    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

    • Right click on the Graphic driver and select
