    Default [Solved] Can't get Lucid virtu to work on my Gigabyte mobo, Help!

    I have a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 mobo (z68) with a 2600k.
    I download and install the virtu software from the gigabyte site and i have gotten the same software from the lucid site.

    My monitor only has dvi/vga.
    I have dvi from my gtx 260 to my monitor and i have the vga from the mobo to the monitor.

    I install the software and when i try to run the program, i get this pop up:
    http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z100/micro5797/virtu.jpg
    "Virtu Alert Can't run with this current gpu configuration" etc.
    I don't get any virtu icon in the task bar.
    Virtu shows up in the start menu, but i get the pop up when i open it.

    I tried to see if i could enable from bios, though every where i read, it said virtu will run through windows and that you don't have to change anything in bios.
    All i could find was what video port to set to look for on boot. PcieX16, pcie x8, pci or on board. I tried on board and didn't get any display. I had to reset cmos at this point.

    Any suggestions on where to go from here?

    EDIT:
    I did update to the F8 bios (newest) as suggested in the Lucidlogix VIRTU download area on the gigabyte site.

    EDIT 2:
    A guy with about the same problem with his MSI.
    EDIT3: His problem is solved as well.

    Am i then working with the wrong software trying to get video display through my cpu?
    What software should i be using?

    Unless you are thinking that i am trying to run dual monitors?
    I am trying to get my vga to be my main display through the cpu and have the video card switch on only when it needs to.

    RTFM
    Depending if you want to use i-Mode or d-Mode the monitor must be connected to either the iGPU or the descrete graphic card, not both.

    I am not even getting to the point where this matters. What am i missing to even get to the point where the lucid software will even work or have the icon show up in the task bar?

    I have both the video card and mobo connected so that i can tell when the i-mode is active by switching to that input on my monitor or switch via the lucid software.

    I have totally disconnected the video out on my discrete video card and just connected the igpu and booted my pc. There is no display at all as i am still not getting the software to work.

    This is my first attempt at setting up this virtu system. Specifics would be helpful.
    Thanks.

    You need to enable Onboard Vga(Advanced BIOS Features)
    Also try settng Init Display First to Onboard.

    Well, it took me quite a while to figure out that i needed to install a "video controller" driver for my cpu.
    While installing and uninstalling my Lucid virtu software, windows 7 popped up saying "do you want us to update the video driver via windows update!?". (Intel (r) hd graphics family).

    After this was updated, virtu now works perfectly.

    EDIT:
    I am trying to change the name of the main thread to say "solved", but i am not seeing how!
    I go to edit,advanced options but it only gives me the option of changing the title of my reply. (on my original post).

    I had same problem with MSI z68a-gd55. Here is what I found solved the problem:
    (This post applies to all instances of difficulty installing the Virtu Logix software.)
    1. You must install a driver for Intel HD Graphics Family (for the HD 3000 integrated gpu on 2500K and 2600K)(or hd2000 on
    2500 ). My driver was on the mainboard CD, under Drivers--VGA.
    2. Once you have installed the Intel HD Graphics driver, check Device Manager, and you will see Intel HD Graphics Family
    listed under Display. (Start--Right Click on Computer (in windows 7)--properties--Device Manager at top left--Display.
    Note: If you only see "Standard VGA Adapter", and discrete card, like AMD or NVIDIA, you don't have Intel HD driver
    installed.
    3. That cured my problem. However, you also need the following:
    a. Driver installed for Discrete GPU (mine is GeForce GTX 9800. This will also be listed under Display in Device Manager.
    You can download this from video card maker website.
    b. In Bios, have to enable either i-mode or d-mode for Virtu Technology (for MSI, under Advanced--Integrated
    Graphics configuration.
    c. In Bios, same place, IGD multi-monitor must be enabled.
    4. Once you have all this, you have to install the virtu logix software (from the CD that comes with your mainboard).

    I hope this helps others...
