OK, so I built my system using Intel i5-3570K CPU and an MSI Z77A-GD55 mainboard. I also have an XFX Radeon HD 7970 Graphics card. My problem was that the screen was tearing badly during games. I am in the process of replacing the card. When I first installed the graphics card, I uninstalled my Intel HD 4000 Graphics Driver. I just had to go through the process of opening up BIOS and enabling the setting to allow my computer to run on mainboard display hookup. I then had to go to safe mode and install the intel hd 4000 64-bit graphics driver. After restarting the resolution was the same as safemode... so I changed it back to normal (not sure if the size of resolution on restart says anything). I then tried loading all of my games 1 by 1. WoW said: cannot detect a graphics card. Starcraft said same thing. league said unable to load direct3d. I then reinstalled the graphics driver thinking that it might have something to do with installing it under safe mode... it did nothing, and I am still having the same problem. Just wondering if anyone has a solution to my problem. Thanks (the driver i installed came directly from my mainboard install disc)

while waiting for a response, I downloaded an update to my driver, and even after the update the video card is not found.

Check in BIOS
MSI settings
Integrated Graphics Configuration
Initiate Graphic Adapter
[PEG] PCI- Express Graphics Device (select)
save and exit BIOS
See if your HD7970 is recognized.

Well, I'm not wanting to use my HD7970, I need to send it in to be replaced. I'm trying to reactivate my Intel Graphics from my mainboard.

To elaborate: I am connected from my monitor to my mainboard with the blue cable, not the white one I used for my 7970. I have gone into BIOS and changed the selection from PEG to the other option, not sure what is was, maybe IGA or whatever the other option is.

I have the Intel driver completely updated, I have checked 4 or 5 times.

I went as far as to reinstall the driver again, and updated it again. The games are still not working. I know Intel 4000 is enough to run the games because I was running all the games im trying to use from my laptop. I am just stumped as to what I can do to fix this problem.... I've searched for similar problems, and probably been through 100 threads without any answer to why I am having this problem.

Check ALL ! power supply connections to motherboard, then reset CMOS and load optimized options from BIOS, if no joy then check CPU socket for bent pins.
