If your PC has a PCI-Express graphics slot, then there should be no reason why the graphics card should not work. Make sure you have the correct drivers for your graphics card and it should all be fine.

Well if your computer is new generation computer than it has integrated video and you don't need to buy graphics card to view normal display.Now a Days all the new motherboard has integrated 128mb to 256mb graphic chipset in build , but if you want to play high resolution games and graphic works .
And if your computer belongs to old age,say 8-10 years old than you need to put a PCI VGA card to get normal display.
There is a memory stick in a socket on the formatter board in the right side of the machine. If you pull the right rear cover to the rear it will come off revealing a metal cover you open by the tab. Once open it shows the formatter board. Inside is a laptop sized memory stick,or DIMM. With power off you spread the tabs to release it then pull the memory out, same as in a laptop. You likely have 96mb RAM - most come with a 64mb memory on the formatter (non removable) and a 32mb option. On the P3005N and P3005DN the memory is required to make the embedded (builtin) network card function, otherwise you can run it fine without the bad DIMM if you use USB. If you want to replace you need a 200 pin DDR2 DIMM in either 32mb, 64mb, 128mb or 256mb value. Last I bought was on ebay for $20 for a 128mb brand new. HP wants like $220 for the same.
Add memory to the machine and it should resolve your issues. The 2840 comes with 96MB built-in and has one slot open for additional memory located under the right side cover. It can take a max of 224MB total. I would recommend adding a 128MB memory card to max out the machine. It takes 100 pin, 133MHz, SDRAM.
Don't by it from HP as they list it at $500.00 or so. Buy the clone memory for around $25.00 for 128MB.
"Memory (Option) 2635-8xx/9xx/Axx/Bxx 8MB and 16MB 70ns EDO DIMM card 16MB, 32MB, and 64MB EDO DIMM card (max. 96MB)"
There you have it. Although unless you are able to find that specification of memory for cheap online, I would say it's not really worth it to invest in older ram with such slow bus speeds unless you definitely need it. Hope that helps.
