It is possible the power supply is now too small for the number of loads you now have.Not sure what your CPU is ,but I bet it is 80 watts just by itself. The minimum wattage requirement or the video card by itself is 300 watts.Add the drives,ram,fans and mobo and you way underpowered.

I have installed two diferent graphics card, #1 was MSI 5459 and #2 was a Nvidia GeForce 250. Bth ran fine afor a short period of tme #1 for a month an #2 for about 2 weeks. After these periods of time...


I don't find the MSI 5459 graphics card, William.
Am familiar with the Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS, though.

Using the GeForce GTS 250 as an example, the graphics card requires a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, for additional power, along with the power it gets from the PCI-Express x16 slot it is in.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

The unit is furnished with an adapter power cable, that converts 2 Molex power cables, (4-pin Peripheral power cables, actually), into 1 PCI-Express 6-pin power cable.

Note that the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, has two Yellow wires in it.

Let's look at a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note there is one Yellow wire, one Red wire, and two Black wires.

The Red wire is a 5 Volt wire, and not used by the adapter power cable.

The two Black wires are Ground wires, and only one is used by the adapter power cable.

The Yellow wire is a 12 Volt wire, and is used by the adapter power cable.

The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable requires TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.
(And three Black Ground wires)

This means Two 4-pin Peripheral power cables MUST be used.

Failure to use two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, to that adapter power cable, means the GeForce GS 250 is NOT receiving enough power.

This will burn the connection at the graphics card, burn the adapter power cable connector, and burn the PCI-Express x16 slot it is sitting in.

Takes time, but will happen.

Could this be what you have done?

It also requires 150 Watts all by itself. You need more power for the rest of the computer.

(The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable is designed to provide up to 75 Watts of power. This means 75 Watts of power, also comes from the PCI-Express x16 slot, it is sitting in)

Does This Graphics Card Work With My Dell Inspiron 530s Even Though My Power Supply Is Only 250 Watts? Will my computer work with this card even though the PSU is only 250 watts?...


I think you're asking for trouble. The specs at the link you gave recommend at least a 300-watt supply. By the time you figure in the normal load of everything else in the system, there probably won't be enough power from the 250-watt supply to let the card work reliably, and may affect overall system operation. One of the problems with small form-factor computers is that they often use a proprietary power supply to fit the case, and you can't replace it with anything larger. This limits expansion capability. I'd suggest saving your money.

Acer Aspire M5641 has a black screen, Power fan is on, CPU fan is on, hard drive has several initial clicking sounds but motor is not running; and i replace a new cmos-bios battery. But nothing...


if by pushing on the power button the machine does not immediately shut down, and you have to hold it down for 5 or 10 seconds, this would indicate that the system is fully functional. the problem would be , your monitor or integrated graphics (NVIDIA GeForce 7100 / nForce 630i) are bad. the graphics can be resolved by adding a graphics card to your system for a reasonable price that varies from 25.00 to 85.00 dollars. the proper card would be a PCI Express video graphics card. here is a link that will provide you with many different options suitable to your need. i suggest you take into consideration if you are a gamer , that you aquire one equal too or greater than 512 self supported ram. 512 will by far exceed the factory video capabilities, enabling a much higher quality video resolution and clearer video /gaming viewing.

Need to know the spec for mother board


The Packard Bell iMedia D3318UK desktop computer?

If it is an iMedia D3318UK model it will have the Part Number - PV.U050Y.019 on the back of the computer tower.
(P/N PV.U050Y.019)

If this is the correct model;

Motherboard:
Made by ECS (EliteGroup Computer Systems) for Packard Bell

Packard Bell's name for the motherboard is Denver 10
It's a Micro-ATX form factor. (Size. Should be 9.6 inches by 9.6 inches, or also stated as 244mm by 244mm)

Uses the Nvidia nForce 610i Northbridge chipset
Uses the Nvidia GeForce 7050 Southbridge chipset.

(The Northbridge chipset, and the Southbridge chipset make up the motherboard chipset)

More information on Nvidia's nForce 610i chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#For_Intel_processors_2

1) Uses the LGA 775 processor socket
The processor socket has the pins, while the processor has the socket holes.

2) Has support for Pentium 4, Celeron, Core2 Duo, and Core2 Quad processors, with up to a 1066MHz Front Side Bus. (FSB)

List of Intel Core2 Microprocessors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors

This way you can look at the processors with a 1066MHz FSB.

I know it will support the Conroe Core, Intel processors, but can't give you factual data at the moment, whether the BIOS program on that motherboard will support Intel's Wolfdale-3M Core processors.

3) Supports (Uses) DDR2 Sdram ram memory at either 533MHz, 667MHz, or 800MHz. (PC2-4300, PC2-5300, and PC2-6400 respectively)

Has two ram memory slots, and will support up to 8GB's of ram memory.

Bear in mind that this is only with a 64bit Operating System.
Otherwise it will support up to 4GB's of ram memory with a 32bit O/S.

(Windows XP Home is a 32bit O/S. Windows XP Pro also, but there is a 64bit version. Vista also comes in a 32bit version, as well as a 64bit version. Never assume all Vista versions are 64 bit.

Note*
With a 32 bit O/S, only 3.2 to 3.5GB's of ram memory will be recognized)

4) Has one PCI Express x16 graphics slot.

This graphics slot uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.
You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just will not get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice?
Doubtful.

"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.


Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter


so...
your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website? http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.
