    "You say your integrated graphics works well, does the GT610 is an OC version? All the problems I've found are with that type of card, factory overclocked versions"

    Both geforce cards I am trying to use are normally clocked. Or at least they are not advertised as being overclocked. I am going to try and change motherboards in a few days as I believe it is either with the bios or the pci-express. I have a one year old motherboard I am not using currently and will try with that. It will have a lot newer bios and the pciexpress will be at least version 2 maybe 3 I am not sure when three came out.
    Thanks for your info.

    I installed a new or rather old motherboard but not one hp bios and then re-installed windows 8 pro 64 bit and I am up and running. So the problem I was having was related to the motherboard or the bios or maybe even both. The bios was very limited on changes I could make so I believe HP's wisdom of what we should be allowed to change got me. The other motherboard I am using now is a biostar cheap micro atx motherboard but works well. The Pci-Express is the same on both boards being version 1 and the video card I am using is version 3. Hope you get your problem solved too.

    this is interesting. My motherboard is a Gigabyte of low-mid range but will try another. It also has the 1.0 specification in the PCI-e and the graphics are from 2.0 onwards. Soon I will come a GT630. I'll try everything and try to change the motherboard too.

    Gracias por la informacion!!! thanks for the info!!!

    Hello. Reagent this post because I keep trying to find out a little more about this problem. I next week change my old motherboard GA-M61P-S3 (nforce chipset) with GA-MA780G-UD3H (AMD chipset)


    I think this may be related to some of the motherboard chipset and I did run a GT630 in Win8x64 necessarily activating the integrated graphics in the BIOS and allowing it to be the first to be activated and using the drivers that windows installed by default.


    Next week I will discuss how I went with the new motherboard. I hope to be lucky!

    As thought, changing the motherboard and use a non-nvidia chipset, my graph, a GT630 and GT220, work perfectly in Windows8x64 without having to activate the graph of the motherboard or do anything, even using the latest drivers nvidia available.


    Therefore, I think the problem is what I already mentioned, win8x64 problem with nvidia graphics driver generic, which creates a conflict or something with integrated graphics and PCI-e card.
