New system - help with 3D


Just build new system with the following:

- G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) Model F3-12800CL8D-4GBXM
- SPARKLE SXT440512D5NM GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 512MB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
- GIGABYTE GA-H67A-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX
- Intel Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz LGA 1155 65W
- SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum front panel, 0.8mm SECC body GD01B-R ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
- LG Black 10X Blu-ray Burner - Bulk SATA WH10LS30
- Samsung 55" 3D TV
- Samsung 3D glasses
- How to Train Your Dragon Blu-ray 3D Disc

With PowerDVD and TotalMedia Theatre 5 I can't get 3D to work. Even after I pull graphic card and use Intel on-board HDMI port I still can't get 3D.

Do I have issue with GT440 or is this MB?

I was thinking to get GT430 and give it try.

What did you guys got 3D working with?

Thanks in advance!

  1. You might want to post this question in the graphics and display forum. The guys there will likely have more experience specific to 3D display issues, and you'll likely get a quicker response. :)
  2. I'm assuming you're using NVidia 3D Vision and have it set up, right?

    What version of PowerDVD are you using?

    The GT 440 should be able to do it.

    You should be able to finagle 3D on the Samsung, even though it's not listed as "supported" on NVidia's site (I've heard it done online via forums). I believe that you may need to use the regular Blu-ray disc, not the 3D version.

    I used to have the Asus VG236H monitor and used it for 3D gaming and movies, and I forgot how to set it up ;) I used PowerDVD 10 Ultra 3D to do Blurays.
  3. Thanks guys for the replies!

    No, I'm not using NVidia 3D Vision kit.
    PowerDVD 10 Mark II w/ latest update

    I've posted new thread over @ graphics and display forum link.
  4. By NVidia 3D Vision I meant the drivers/software, not the glasses kit. That's required to actually run the 3D applications.

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with NVIDIA.
    I downloaded driver from Sparkle site 266.58 so I'm assuming that includes everthing what does NVidia has?

    No the drivers don't include the 3D Vision drivers. Download these (this is for 64-bit):
  7. Just wanted to report back that I got it to work, in case someone runs into same issue.
    I installed NVIDIA 3DTV Play software and still wasn't able to see 3D. Then I reset NVidia settings to defaults changed back in PowerDVD to auto detect display and voila it started working. Not quite sure what got it fixed but it works now.
  8. Good. The software is a bit tricky (both NVidia's and PowerDVD 10) sometimes, but I'm glad it's working now.
