Is it possible to replace the integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card in my new computer with the NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT graphics card from my old computer? If so, is this difficult to do?


Yes.

Windows loaded, install the Drivers for the Nvidia GeForce 8500GT graphics card, F-I-R-S-T.

If you do not have the GeForce 8500GT installation disk (CD):
This is for an Evga model. Using it as an example. Go to the graphics card manufacturer's support website, and download the drivers.

http://www.evga.com/support/download/default.aspx

To the right of - Choose a Family - click on the blue down arrow.
In the list click on - GeForce 8 Series Family

To the right of - Choose an OS - click on the blue down arrow.
Click on the Operating System you are using. (

I chose Windows XP 32-bit as an example.
There are two Drivers listed. Go with the newer one -
8-09-2011 / Driver / 280.26 /Windows XP 32bit / Download / View

When you click on Download a small window will come up on the right -
Opening 280.26-desktop-winxp-32bit-english-whql.exe

Left-click on - Save File

A small window will come up on the left.
In the heading at the top of the window, tells you where the file will download to.
Write it down.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.
(For WinXP. Vista and Win7 are different)

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name, DOUBLE-click right on it. Follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Essentially just click on Next, next, and Finish, at the bottom of the windows)

When you are finished restart your computer if not asked to do so.
After Windows has run for a few minutes, turn the computer off normally.
Unplug from power. Observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Install the GeForce 8500GT graphics card. Close the computer case. Attach the monitor cable to the graphics card. Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

{ Note*

When a device is installed Windows breaks it's neck to find compatible drivers. If you install the graphics card F-I-R-S-T before installing it's drivers, Windows will try to match up one of it's thousands of generic drivers, OR, the drivers for the ATI Radeon HD 4200 integrated graphics.

This won't do.
A driver conflict may result.

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

You need THE drivers for the graphics card installed first. THEN physically install the graphics card.

Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System (WinXP is one example), to communicate with a device }


Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer. De-static your body BEFORE reaching inside your computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static electricity.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to touch the metal frame again upon your return.

Ugrade Lenovo 8113 to GeForce 8500GT 512 -Problems?


Not a compatibility issues per se, but their could be a Driver conflict.

Install the Drivers FIRST, then power down, computer unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static precautions, and install the graphics card.

Plug the monitor into the graphics card, plug the computer into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

(The drivers are on the installation CD that comes with the Nvidia GeForce 8500GT graphics card. Just install the CD, and load the software. The drivers will automatically be loaded)

If you install a device first, (Such as a graphics card), Windows will break it's neck trying to find suitable drivers.
Windows will match up one of it's thousands of generic drivers.

Then you come along, and install THE drivers.

Driver conflict.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

If you have already installed the graphics card, then powered the computer up, and installed the drivers, I suggest you do this;

Computer off, and unplugged from power. Open the computer case.
(I prefer to remove all cables to the computer, and lay it on it's side on a clean towel, on a table)

Observe Anti-Static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.

TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, BEFORE you reach inside the computer, or take a device out of it's anti-static bag.

Should you get up in the middle of working on your computer, and leave, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

Remove the GeForce 8500GT.
Plug the monitor into the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard.
(VGA port

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in.
Hold it in for a count of Five seconds.
(And I mean at least Five. Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.
One of which is Integrated Graphics.

Computer case open, cables plugged back in, computer in normal position.
Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

When Windows has fully loaded, go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.

Remove anything you see associated with the GeForce 8500GT.
(DO NOT remove anything in the Windows files. It's a separate section you have to go into anyway, but thought I would warn you in advance, just in case)

Restart the computer. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart)

Once Windows has fully loaded again, install the software off of the CD disk, that comes with the GeForce 8500GT graphics card.

If you are asked to restart your computer - No.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally.
(Start>Turn Off Computer>Turn Off)

Unplug your computer from power. Observe Anti-static precautions. Install the GeForce 8500GT.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card.
Plug the computer into power.
Wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Everything works okay, close the computer case.
