Hi
I think your problem is a Driver one.
Try downloading and installing the Graphic Card driver, as it is sometimes that you need a specific driver to be able to use your graphic card as it is supposed to be used.
Even you have a working driver now, try unistalling it & installing a new one.
I hope it works.

So I have a HP Compaq d530 SFF PC Desktop problem. I checked out the HP tech specifications: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11632_div/11632_div.html#Technical Specifications - Graphics Is...


"Graphics, is there an upper limit on how much you can upgrade a video card?"

Yes, and no gammon_ben.

Your computer uses an AGP graphics card.
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards. (1.5 volt)

Goes in the brown AGP slot on the motherboard above the three white PCI slots.

The best AGP graphics cards are the AGP 8X ones.

Sky's the limit, just depends on your pocketbook.

Yes, so far.


Primer:
When using Integrated Graphics, the graphics chipset on the motherboard borrows some of the System Resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program being ran.
(Windows XP is one example of an O/S. Operating System)

Let's use an intensive graphics program for an example, a Game, and Windows XP.

The Processor and Ram Memory is supporting Windows.

They're also supporting the characters of the game, the shading of the game, and the background of the game, just to name a few characteristics.

Due to the resources needed from the system resources, (Processor and Ram Memory), from the game, the game will lag, or freeze up.

Using a graphics card frees up the system resources.
A graphics card has it's own Processor (GPU), and Ram Memory. (Graphics memory)
(GPU = Graphics Processing Unit)

However, the Processor still has to utilize the information from the graphics card. Even though it, and the Ram Memory have been freed up, there is a limit on how much information a Processor can handle at one time.

Your Processor may be an Intel Celeron, or Pentium 4.
These are single core processors, and have their limitations.

HOWEVER one more time, you are just speaking of operating a 40 inch widescreen (?) monitor with 1080p.
A really decent AGP graphics card can handle that with no sweat, and watching videos.
Some of the newer intensive games may be a problem.

Here is an example of a decent AGP 8X graphics card, that is Low Profile. (Low in height)

Look in the drop down list and select The Sims 2 Double Deluxe PC game. Then Click on the "Can You Run it" Button.

It wiil then Scan your System & Build a detailed profile of Hardware & Software installed, and will inform you of what software or hardware is/is not compatable with the game you want to play.

I have a Pentium 4 3ghz Processor, 1GB Ram, Direct X 9.0c, Win XP SP3 installed & after running a test to see if my Machine would handle The Sims 2 Double Deluxe, it passed on all areas except Video Card. & This is what it informed me :

Video Card
Minimum: A T&L-capable video card with at least 32 MB of video RAM. ATI Radeon series 8500 or better, NVIDIA GeForce series GeForce2 GTS and better

You Have: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family (Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset)

Hal.dll error after booting


HAL - Hardware Abstraction Layer (hal.dll)
HAL is Microsoft’s abbreviation for the Hardware Abstraction Layer, the technology and drivers that let the Windows NT, 2000, and XP operating systems communicate with your PC’s hardware. HAL is one of several features–along with the NT file system (NTFS) that replaced the much less secure MS-DOS–that make NT-based operating systems more secure and reliable than Windows 95, 98, and Me.
HAL.dll prevents applications from directly accessing your PC’s system memory, CPU, or hardware devices (such as video and sound cards)–a method that can prevent many device conflicts and crashes. Unfortunately, HAL.dll sometimes also slows or stops DOS games and programs, which need to load their own memory managers or control hardware directly for better performance.
With HAL.dll in the way, developers must rewrite or even abandon their older software in favor of newer, HAL-compatible versions. Microsoft has pressured hardware makers to provide or support technologies such as MMX, DirectX, and 3D graphics language OpenGL, all of which allow fast but indirect access to the advanced high-performance features of video, sound, and CPU hardware. Such access also makes for a better visual experience when using Windows for Web and productivity applications; improved graphics performance is evident all over Windows XP’s new user interface.
XP also offers some new compatibility-mode features that let you run programs meant to run under earlier operating systems, but, frankly, most DOS-based and even some Windows-based games simply won’t work with the new OS.

Many of the newer machines for sale now unfortunatly do not include a seperate and powerful video card. The machine comes with an internal video card that shares the machine's memory for video loads; iy is built into the motherboard to reduce the selling price. Many of the current games out there require a very large amount of video power and these onboard video MB's just can't keep up with the software and the game slows to a crawl or fails to work at all. All games sold retail come a minimum requirements list. Make sure you PC has all the requirements the software needs to run. Remember this is a minumum list and this is NOT the best hardware to make the game run well. Games today for the most part require a huge amount of power to run favorably and these sale machines usually don't cut the mustard. Check that the CPU is fast and you have at least 1 to 2 GB of memory installed. Check to see if you have a video slot available to install a decent video card. If it does'nt forget the whole thing a get another PC built to play games on it. If yes, install one immediatly and a good one should cost around $150 or so. The machine's manual should tell you if you can or not.These can be expensive however, so pray the machine you have will take a videocard and good luck.
