Not a question but...why is my Graphics card showing it can be removed?

    I have had it on previous beta's of Vista and Windows 7 but it was nothing that drivers could not fix, but you might be waiting some time before drivers are available for that card as this is not even a full version of Windows 8

    Turns out that "Show Hidden Devices" was enabled in device manager :D

    It could be that its a Mobile Card that can be swaped out of the Laptop like some of the Dell Alianware PC can, but windows 8 is locking it (Drivers might hide this from windows Vista/Seven)?

    Last time i updated my card (before i had to do a fresh install) it never showed up. When i updated a few days ago it said update failed but still worked. That could be it?

  • Thanks for the info still think its to do with that its a mobile graphics card as my PC dose not do that when hidden devices are shown...
