Question about IBM Netvista Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz / 512MB DDR / 40GB HDD / DVD-ROM / 10/100Mbps LAN / Windows XP P (RBP42400XPP) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Installing AGP card

I bought a refurbished Netvista P4 2.4Ghz, working without any problems. I bought an ATI Radeon 9550 256mb AGP in order to stream s-video to my TV. The card fits into the available AGP slot but is too high and the cover will not close. Question. will this card work with my Netvista, before considering modifying the cover?

    Without the cover in the right position, the computer can not be started, unless by mimicking the function of the starting button with some sort of an improvised device. I do not want to do this, unless I know from people with experience that this card can indeed be successfully installed in the Netvista computer.

Try it with the cover off first. Just don't stick your fingers in there anywhere. ;)

    A little extreme to rate this as "inappropriate"; "inaccurate" maybe, but this solution would work perfectly well in 9 out of 10 cases, probably more.
    Not as a permanent solution, but just to test the hardware.

The AGP slot on this system is 4X

The two cards that were tested on this from Dell are
ATI 64MB Radeon VE 7500 ATI 32MB Radeon
The maximum card you can connect to the system any PCI video card not more than 128 MB. As the motherboard and the power supply would not support it

You must uninstall your previous video card drivers before installing the new card, especially if they were nVidia drivers.

IBM Thinkcentre m50 video card


Hi, i'm getting an ATI Radeon 2600XT for this system soon. But any AGP card *should* work fine (i'm hoping), just stick to midrange cards due to the low-grade power supply. I will post after the install and let you know how it goes.
