The Medion computers appear to use standard parts so the video card can be replaced with any one that uses the same slot. I believe the slot that yours has is PCI Express x16. In any case you can find out just by looking at the card that is already in there (maybe bring it into a computer store and ask the sales people what slot it is).

What graphics card can i use to fit ideq 220m model

You need an AGP graphics card. Preferably 8x. These are getting difficult to find now as the interface has been replaced (in general use) by the PCI-E standard. Hope this helps.

Gaming graphic card for u8668-d

This is an old motherboard, it supports PCI or AGP interface. Do NOT get a PCI-E graphics card for it. Best graphics card for this would be Radeon HD 4650 AGP 8x. However, I would save the money, those are and near 100$. That mobo will only support pentium 4 series CPU, very outdated and slow. I would consider upgrading to a whole new system.

What are core i mainboard of acer?

The i3,5,7 cores use a differnet structure to what your pc has now ie: intel/amd processor.

You will a new motherboard, the i3 CPU and DDRIII memory.
It would be alot easier and cheaper to get a new pc.
You hardware maybe to old for this new layout.... ie: IDE Hard drives instead of SATA, AGP grpahics instead of PCIE...and many other factors.

heres an updated 'Acer' i3 desktop pc. Just under £400. Its a superb pc for the money, only lacking a graphic card. not sure how good the Intel graphics adapter is

My compaq presario sr1000 computor won't stop beeping from the inside and it says no signal on the monitor

1 short beep and 1 long beep means its a memory problem.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and replace the memory module.If you have 2 or more modules ,try starting the pc with one.If it fails, try a different single module.

2 short beeps and 1 long beep repeating for 5 times means its a graphics card issue.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and unplug the graphics card, then plug it again.If this doesn't help, try with a different(confirmed working) graphics card.

I have HCL Beanstalk Desktop, Monitor - Samsung Syncmaster 794MG. I don't have a ups. I get frequent powercuts in here resulting in interrupted shutdown of the computer. Sometimes while playing a game...

You seem to have a corrupt display card. Is it on board or do you have a separate graphics card installed in your PC. Either way on restart graphics processor is not turning on. What does the Power and HDD indicator on the PC show during boot up. You could also have damaged the Hard Disk because of your abrupt shutdowns. You can open the side cover and try disconnecting the HDD power (Yellow, Black & Red ) cable and IDE ( 40 pin flat ribbon wire ) cable and try restarting. If your monitor starts up and shows BIOS page you have a faulty HDD. Also see if the processor fan is a working when you start the PC. If not you have a failed mother board. Are you getting the boot up RAM beep. If not before you do any of the above mentioned things Just pull out the RAM ( with PC unplugged ) and reinsert into the slot. It might get your PC working after all

Screen problem blackout

Make sure the video cable is securely plugged into the VGA port of your motherboard or graphics card. If you still don't get signal and are using onboard graphics then your motherboard has become faulty. I suggest you take your computer to your nearest PC store and have a technition diagnose the extent of the damage. If you were using a graphics card before you lost signal the you will need to plug the monitor video cable into onboard graphics. If you get signal now then it means that your graphics card has become faulty. If you still don't get signal after plugging into onboard graphics then it means either youir motherboard is faulty or your graphics card or both. Best take it to a PC technition to have it tested. Another thing to try is to try another monitor on the system to test if the other is malfunctioning or not.

I have no image anymore on the screen. There is `No Video Output`on the screen. I changed the battery for the Bios, but still no go.

try replacing your graphics card with a known good one to see if that is the problem, also check your screen is ok by running it on a known good PC.
