Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
In order to replace your Graphics card, you will need:
A screwdriver that fits the bolts of the casing of your computer
A new Graphics Card that is compartible to your Motherboard
And computer knowledge.
Start by removing drivers of your old Graphics card, by starting up the Device Manager from the Control Panel. Expand "Display Adapters", and double click on your Graphics card. On the Driver tab of the window that opens, click Uninstal, and follow the installshield wizard (could be automatic or might be another wizard).
After your Drivers are removed, shut down your computer, and remove the cable from your PSU. Make sure that your computer is not connected to anything that provides power to it.
-You might want to use insulating gloves for this task-
Start by removing one of the sides of the casing by unscrewing the bolts. It should be fairly easy to understand how to remove it after the bolts are removed.
When looking at your motherboard, your graphics card should be placed near the back of your computer. If you are unsure which card(if there are many) is the old Graphics Card, see where the Monitor's cable goes in.
Carefully unscrew any bolts that are used to lock your graphics card on the computer casing.
After that is done, remove all cables attached to your graphics card from inside the computer, and then carefully pull the Graphics Card out, making sure that your card is safe. After that is done, place your new Graphics card in the slot of your old one, and connect any wires connected to it(if needed).
Then do all the things you did to your computer backwards.
After your graphics card is ready and installed, start up your computer and insert it's manufacturer's disc. If you do not have a disc, look up on the internet.
Install the drivers, and it's ready for use.
