Hey guys, I just installed a sapphire radeon hd 7870 and went to try and install the the Lucid Virtu software and my intel integrated gpu was not detected. This seems very strange. Please help. Thanks.

Hello and welcome to the forums
Is the onboard GPU enabled from the BIOS ?

^The GPU must be enabled in BIOS and there should not be a Graphics card installed on the PCIE slot. Most mobos disable on board graphics when a graphics card is connected to PCIE. Check your manual, it should be in there.

you mb bios like mine the asus sabertooth you have to go in and turn the lucent chipset on. got to got to advance mode it under system adjent (pch settings) turn them on under here and the intel gpu should turn on.
make sure your using the newest intel chipset driver from intel web page and the mvp software.

I'm sorry, what is that mvp software you speak of? Also, question for you, is the latest bios version from february because when I go to update my asus bios through the asus suite ii it just stays loading and doesn't update anything. Thanks a lot for the info guys.

the last one is P8Z68-V PRO BIOS 3402 from asus. I never flash the bios from windows if it screws up it brick your mb. I always use a usb stick fat32 formated and use the bios flash tools in the bios.

the updated software..newer then the one on asus web page,
you dont have to install it if your not trying to run the gpu and the intel video chipset in games. if you have a slower gpu you can make the intel chipset help your game play.

I have another question about the integrated gpu. I just enabled my igpu. what should I set the memory to be used to? Should I set it to the highest(1gig)?
Thanks.

Do I have to pay for lucid virtu mvp? My motherboard dvd just came with lucid virtu software and, from the looks of it on the lucid website, lucid mvp is a much enhanced version of the base lucid virtu software. Thanks.

set it to auto the mb will only use the amount of system ram it needs. (the software is free from that vendor sight some mb can use the mvp software some cant. the sabertooth mb came with the mvp software. im not sure if it for different chipsets.

I tried to use the asus updater to update my bios to version to 3402 and as always it just continues to try to connect to the server? What do I do?

i dont use asus server. just use a usb stick and plug it in and boot into the bios. under the bios in asus flash program. all you need do is put the flash file on a fat32 formated usb stick and it read fine.
