Pavilion p6600 vga replacement


What did you have in mind?

Just a graphics card, to give the same basic graphics quality the computer came with, or much better graphics?

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/th/en/ho/WF10a/12454-12454-3329740-64546-64546-4269976.html

You didn't state specifically, as to which model number p6600 you have.

http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_pagetype=s-001&h_lang=en&h_client=s-s-r2515-1&h_cc=th&h_query=HP+Pavilion+p6600+Desktop+PC+series

(It's on the back of the computer in a white Service Tag.
State the Product Number -> P/N )

I'm just going to pick the first one out of the list, for an example.
All model numbers should use the same motherboard, but even if not; they all will have a PCI-Express x16 slot for a graphics card.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02558771&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=4278026

Coming up from the bottom of the motherboard, there are 3 black PCI-Express x4 slots.

Right above the top one is a longer black PCI-Express x16 slot.
This is where a PCI Express graphics card goes.

Examples of PCI Express slots,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCIExpress.jpg

The top example is a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Next one down is a PCI-Express x16 slot.
Next one down is a PCI-Express x 1 slot.
Next one down is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

The last on at the bottom, is a PCI slot.

As you can see, color of slot does NOT matter.
WHAT, the slot is, does.

{Plus the PCI-Express x16 slot examples shown, have a 'Pinch Lock' on the right side.

Your motherboard has a different style lock.
The lock looks as though you press down on it.
Nope.
Gently pull up a little, when installing or removing a graphics card }

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

You can use a PCI Express graphics card, based on the
PCI Express 2.0 technology, or PCI Express 2.1 technology, or PCI Express 3.0 technology.

The only drawback you have is the Power Supply.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02594653&cc=us&destPage=product&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4278026#N90

250 Watts

For some puny graphics cards, you might get away with having a 300 to 350 Watt power supply, but if I had to replace it; I wouldn't go less than 500 Watts.

You should have at least 10 percent more power (Power Supply), than what is needed. It's easier on the Power Supply, and better all around for the computer system.

A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and no more.
Surfing the internet? About 100 Watts.
Playing an intensive game, and you have a 500 Watt power supply?
Then the computer may use Up To 500 Watts.

[The minimum required power, stated for a graphics card; is based on the entire computer system, and not just the graphics card.

Graphics card designers base the minimum power requirement, on a test computer system they have set up.

Has the most powerful Processor available, for that test system motherboard.. At least 4GB of Ram Memory.
2 optical drives. 2 computer case fans. Gamer style motherboard ]

Something like this graphics card, if you just want to restore graphics to your computer. (Motherboard VGA is bad)

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7373215&Sku=P450-54500

Next two examples are if you are starting to get serious about gaming / video editing / 3D programs,

Replace integrated Radeon 4200


You can't replace integrated graphics, the chip is on the motherboard.

See what you have for PCI-E slots, a forty dollar graphics card is three times better then your 4200.

Change graphics card


1) Follow Anti-Static Procedures

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

Relieve your body of Static, 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.

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

(Also use Anti-Static Procedures BEFORE removing new hardware, out of their antistatic bags, or cartons. Such as a graphics card, for example )

Now we come to;
1) Are you still using the graphics the computer came with?
According to this website it is an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card,

http://www.cnet.com.au/dell-dimension-e521_specs-339271259.htm

Example,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-ATI-Radeon-X1300-256MB-DDR2-DVI-TV-Graphics-Video-Card-PCI-Express-/151012337856?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item23290968c0

(The Integrated Graphics on the motherboard, is Nvidia GeForce 6150LE,

http://support.dell.com/support/systemsinfo/document.aspx?s=dfh&~file=/systems/dime521/en/sm_en/specs.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6150LE )

The graphics expansion slot you have is a PCI-Express x16 slot.
It is based on the Nvidia nForce 430, and Nvidia GeForce 6150LE; motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

Came out on the market June of 2006.

The PCI Express 2.0 technology didn't come out, until
January 15, 2007,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_2.0

Therefore, we can assume the PCI Express technology your computer is using, is PCI Express 1.1

You can use a PCI Express 2.0 graphics card, though.

This is is because PCI Express 2.0 technology, is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

"PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards.

PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1.

Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v2.0 will work with the other being v1.1 or v1.0a."

(From the above Wikipedia article)

However, will you get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card?

NO

Will you notice?

NO

You can also use a PCI Express graphics card, based on the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

Requirements;
1) PCI-Express x16 slot.
You have that.

(The Lock lever on the end, looks as though you press down, to unlock.
Actually you LIFT UP, slightly.

Use CARE though, and do NOT lift too much. You'll see it just takes a little. It's also PLASTIC, and can break.

Lift up slightly to install a graphics card, on remove one )

2) Power Supply:
You need to look at the system requirements. Plus more specifically, the Power Requirements.

Website that sells the graphics card does Not state this?
Go to a different website that does.

Your Power Supply is rated at 305 Watts.

HOWEVER, this power supply was made back in the day, when Power Supply manufacturers were 'fudging'; the REAL actual maximum rated Wattage.

Actual maximum rated Wattage is more like 60 to 70 percent, of what is stated.

305 Watts divided by 10 = 30.5
Round it off to 30.

30 times 6 = 180 Watts
30 times 7 = 210 Watts

BIG difference.

Recommendation?
It really depends on what you wish to do, with the graphics card.

It also depends on if you are willing to get a better Power Supply.

It also depends on the Processor.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+?

Dual core processor that can operate Up To, a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 2.0GHz.
(Can also be stated as 2000MegaHertz.
2000MHz)

Not bad.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7620168&CatId=3585

Going to need a 400 Watt power supply, though.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2941922&CatId=3669

Same here.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=899123&Sku=T925-5002

500 Watt power supply.
Gives you more, than the recommended 10 percent extra power you should have.
This way the Power Supply will last longer, because it doesn't have to work as hard.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hp pavilion slimline s5000 series whats the highest graphics card i can put in it


There are 14 different versions in the s5000 series of slimline desktop computers,
{From s5200z to the s5285t}

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

Some are Intel processor based, some are AMD processor based.
The Power Supply wattage differs also. Seems it goes from 220 Watts to 300 Watts.

All versions have a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot, though.

[ It is based on the PCI-Express 1.1 version technology
A graphics card based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology will work.
Why?

Because PCI-Express 2.0 is backward compatible with PCI-Express 1.1

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI-Express

"PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards. PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v2.0 will work with the other being v1.1 or v1.0."

Means;
1) Motherboards based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology, are compatible with a PCI-Express graphics card that is based on the older PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

2) PCI-Express graphics cards are also generally compatible, if they operate at the smaller bandwidth of PCI-Express 1.1

Since the slower technology of PCI-Express 1.1 is what is available on your motherboard, a graphics card based on PCI-Express 2.0 will not operate at full capability.

{Graphics cards based on the new PCI-Express 2.1 technology will work also }

Will you notice?
No ]

What is the limit for a graphics card?
The sky.

Two problems though.
A) The Power Supply
B) The available room inside the computer case for a graphics card.


1) Power Supply:
According to HP Support, and looking at the specifications for the s5200z, and s5285t, the top of the line graphics card is an Nvidia GT220.

This is due to the low power consumption. (And probably reduced cost from Nvidia)

Based on price, and performance however, the GT220 is a less than choice.

Using a Zotac version as an example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=348736&CatId=3669

Stream Processors = 48

You can have the fastest Core Clock, and Memory Clock, plus all kinds of graphics ram memory, but if you do not have enough Stream Processors, your graphics card will be less than adequate.

Consider Stream Processors as the 'Information Highway'. The path that graphics information takes from the Processor to the Graphics Card, and back.

If you do not have enough stream processors it's like a road being worked on.
Traffic is redirected into just one lane. Everything slows down.
There is a 'Bottleneck'.

Most decent graphics cards that are better than a GT220, require a Power Supply with 400 Watts, or greater.
.
The size and shape of the Power Supply's case, makes it hard to find a replacement that is greater than 300 Watts.

2) Available room for a graphics card (Height) inside the computer case:

With the Slimline case you have to purchase graphics cards that are Low-Profile.
{Low Height}

It isn't so much the length that you need to be concerned with, as it is the height of the graphics card.
The length of a graphics card goes from the back of the computer towards the front.
The height of a graphics card goes from side to side inside the computer case.

Average width inside a Slimline case seems to be around 4 inches.

You have to take into consideration; how far the motherboard is supported off of the support plate inside the computer case, and when inserted how high does the graphics card sit in the PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.
4 inches is Not enough room.

If it were I, I would remove all internal components, and install them in a cheap, decent, Mid-tower computer case. There is more room inside the case for a taller graphics card, and the case will use the common ATX style of Power Supply. A 600 Watt ATX power supply is pretty economical.

{There is also more room inside for air flow. Air is the cooling medium for a desktop computer. (Unless it's a high-end gamer computer. Dry Ice, Nitrogen, Refrigerant etc. have been used )

More air flow means cooler hardware components inside the computer.
Result? Longer life, more reliable }

Then I would use an ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics card, (And a decent 600 Watt power supply)

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=465512&CatId=3669

{A decent mid-tower computer case averages around $50 }

Graphics card


Hi bob,

Is your onboard video busted? as i check your specs; you have these slots available in your motherboard

2 ( 2 ) x PCI ¦ 1 ( 1 ) x PCI Express x1 ¦ 1 ( 1 ) x PCI Express x16 ¦ 1 ( 0 ) x processor ¦ Memory

base from:
http://www.twenga.co.uk/specs-Aspire-T180-ACER-Desktop-PC-243132

so, you can go to your nearest computer shop and ask them for a videocard that uses PCI Express x16, if its for gaming then go for the higher specs, i can't assist you further with regard to the exact video card model though.

Having problem with new games


What is the Name and model number of your motherboard

The nforce 430 is an older chipset model and may not use the full capacity of the Phenom processor ...some boards won't even boot and there are Bios updates available for others ...etc

The onboard graphics (geforce 6150 se) is negated by the 8800 GTX ...good card......the problem isn't your video card

Your also running PC5300 ,,667mhz ram ....if board is capable of PC6400 ...800mhz ....there could be another speedup

The bottlenck seems to be with the board and possibly Ram

(Again MB model and name)

Also make sure you have all the latest drivers for Vcards ...chipsets BIOS etc......

Video card for the gateway 507gr


Yes, your computer specifically supports:

PCI Express 16x and
PCI Express 1x

The 16x is the long one and the 1x is the reallly short one. Most likely the card that you get will fit the big slot. Be careful not to upgrade too high though, because if you do you may have to upgrade your power supply as well. Ask someone at gateway or a local shop for a recommended card for your system.
