Hello,

I have a Samsung-517 Samsung] 17 inch laptop RF711-S04HK since 2012, it was working really well since I bought it.

May 2017, I upgarded to Win10 Creators from Win10 Anniversary, there are 2 issues suddenly appeared:

1. The Geforce GT540M graphic card is not longer detected, it just disappered whatsoever. Only left with the Intel 300 graphic card. So annoying.........

2. And also, 80% of the time when I restart the laptop just pauses with a black blank screen, I have to power off by holding the Power button every time.

Please help fixing these two issues, the laptop was perfect until recently. I have already tried pulling out the RAM and re-inserted back, still having the same issues.

Thanks a lot,
Eric

Hello

I suggest you reinstall your Geforce GT540M graphic card driver, which should fix the issue.

Hello Eric

Can you see the Geforce in your device manager ?

I didn't know that it was possible to have two graphic cards.

Hello Ambucias,

Under "Device Manager" I can only see "Intel HD Graphic 3000" now.
But before Win10 install, I could see both Intel HD Graphic 3000 and Nvidia GT540M.

But now, only Intel is detected, Nvidia GT540M is no longer there even I try to install Nvidia driver.

below is the link of the exact model I have: Samsung RF711-S04HK

Thanks,
Eric

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the link to your manual.

Windows 10 Creator has new features for 3D design and a GeForce card is not compatible with Win10 Creator's new function.

I suggest you uninstall Windows 10 Creator (1703) and revert back to Windows 10 Anniversary.

Good luck and let me know.
