When something is grayed out, it means that the OS doesn't see the drivers, may not be installed r installed incorrectly.

video cards are designed to run on a number of different busses - agp, pci, PCIe, usb, firewire, etc.. The available busses on your computer will determine which cards are compatable with your computer. Other considerations are power and ram requirements. How far any of these can be upgraded will determine the limit of a cards compatablilitiy.
recovery disk for the model you're looking for is already installed within the hard drive, you can burn the disks out straight from the hard drive. the catch is, you can only do it once. so if you've already burned the recovery disks to CDs (or worse, if this computer belonged to someone else) you won't have access to the recovery disks anymore...
Connect to the Internet and get your download. Just type at the search engine (download for Software driver compac 510 webcam ) and click on it. Follow all the instruction so you can get your download. Then, at your PC, open the download, and have it installed. Then, test your web cam.
SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.
If you had a recovery disk given to you when you bought the pc, then used this to enter the recovery console. I pressume that you want to do a repair, in that you want to restore it to factory conditions?
Simply go into the bios and change the primary boot device to CDROM instead of hard disk. To enter bios, press "DEL" a few times when you first turn the pc on. The default is DEL but i have seen some systems with F2, (it will say what button you need to press to enter setup, look closely on the screen).
If you did not get a recovery disk, then there will be a recovery partition on your hard drive that you can normally access using an "F" button on the keyboard, usually F10,F12, etc (it should flash up briefly when you turn the pc on).
I hope this is of some help to you. Feel free to IM me if you need to ask more questions.
