Problem in Installing Lucid Virtu in Asrock z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 with i5 2500k

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Good day to all! Im just new in this forum, thus, first time to create a thread. I really need a hand on this issue. I installed the onboard gpu display driver already (updated one) but whenever i try to launch Virtu Control panel, it won't run with this error message, "Wrong GPU configuration. Please check your hardware/drivers. Disabling Virtu and exiting. Remember to enable Virtu after the problem is fixed."

I tried drivers from the support CD that came with this mobo, the one from Asrock site, as well as the one from Intel itself. I've never mingled with the display properties. So every line must be in default settings.

I'm currently running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Here are the reference photos:

I badly need your expert help fellas. I expect this Virtu to work now that I can't purchase a discrete gpu just yet.

GOD bless

I tried to install the Virtu application from the support CD of my mobo, Asrock site, and from the main site of Virtu as well. Same error encountered.

you have to Install Intel VGA drivers as well as your GPU's drivers for virtu to launch. your GPU drivers, like the one from your video card aren't installed. if you don't have a VGA card and only use onboard, then there is no need for virtu.

Thanks a lot sin for the quick response.

Is that so? I read info that Virtu applies to the best available graphic resource whether its an onboard or discrete.

yes that is true, it uses either one, but you have to install drivers for both devices lol.

You cannot use Virtu unless you have more than one GPU(iGPU inside the CPU=1 GPU), in other words you have to have a discrete GPU to switch between GPUs..

Virtu is a switching technology, you have to have two devices to switch between. So do you have a GPU? or just the GPu inside the CPU?

Virtu just switches between the integrated GPU and the discrete GPU. So if you game it will shut down the GPU inside the CPU and use your other GPU, and if you aren't gaming it will shut down your discrete GPU and use the internal CPU's GPU.

Did you buy a separate video card? are you using one? or are you just using the CPU's graphics>

That's what I needed to hear! Thanks a lot fella for these info. At least I had proven that nothing's wrong with my software setup. Like what I posted, using only onboard gpu at the moment for the mere reason of not having a discrete available. hehehehe

Keep it up bro!

I've got a z68 extreme3, I'm temporarily running an 8800gt, I've got both graphics adapters showing up in the Win 7 device manager, I have Virtun software installed and running fine, I have the bios set as follows for graphics: , under the advanced tab in the bios, northbridge, primary graphics adapter set for pci express (for the 8800gt). Okay, so far, so good.

I have 3dmark2006 installed, which supposedly runs with virtu. I have 3dmark 2006 added in the virtu list. Again, so far, so good . . . I think.

Now, running 3dmark 2006 without virtu enabled, the opening scene starts off running at about 80 fps, and the levels off to 30fps. With virtu enabled, it drops to like 18fps, and then 8fps. In short, enabling virtu totally slows down the performance on 3dmark2006. Now the good news is that there is an effect. But I should not get such a huge crippling effect.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION - I may have the solution, my temporary video card does not meet minimum specs for this to work. I have GeForce GTX Ti 560 to put in there, that should meet minimum specs. I'll try that.

Plus, and here's really my question, what is the benefit of virtu? Assuming that I will be using a video card (I'll be putting a much better card into this build in a few days), how will Virtu benefit my system? I've been reading up on it the last few days, and I cannot really figure out exactly how it is supposed to be beneficial. Supposedly, it lets me switch back and forth between the Intel graphics and the dedicated card without disconnecting the monitor, but then I read that you do have to disconnect the hardware.

Does anyone really have a handle on Virtu? It seems like this should be obvious, and I feel like an idiot that I cannot quite get this.

Thanks all. This is a great forum. I'm new to it since starting my new build (i5 2500k, ASRock z68 Extreme3, CM Hyper 212, other parts are just temporary right now, I have a temporary win7 OS and I'm just doing benchies, playing with this mobo, learning the UEFI.
