How do I restore the BIOS settings on my Cyberpower Windows 8 64-Bit Gamer Ultra 2150. I installed a new graphics card and went into my BIOS to change the setting and after I saved new settings I have no...


You should remove the CMOS battery from motherboard for 10-15 second and than put it again. When you change the graphic card, you shouldn't go to BIOS, just install the Driver for your new grapic card. bed355b8-0e7a-4736-bf41-c4eb95ebe7a5.jpg

Help with upgrading Dell Dimension 4600 GPU


June,

The Dell Dimension 4100 Desktop PC, utilizes an AGP slot on the motherboard, for a graphics card.

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/17152514/17275500.aspx

There are different styles of AGP expansion slots.
The one on your motherboard was the last current style of AGP -

AGP 8X

Therefore your Dimension 4100 uses an AGP 8X graphics card.
It is (Was) an Nvidia GeForce FX5200 graphics card, and the AGP 8X style.

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

To replace it just use a graphics card that is AGP 8X, and is better, or equivalent to the GeForce FX5200.

You also need to know that your Power Supply in your computer, will handle the power requirements for the computer system, AND your new found AGP 8X graphics card.

Power Supply was rated, at a maximum Wattage rating of 200 Watts.
Problem is; that back in the day when the Dimension 4100 was made, the Power Supply manufacturer 'Fudged' the real Wattage specifications.

Power was (Is) more like 60 to 70 percent of what is stated.
Divide 200 Watts by 10
= 20
Now take that times 6, for 60 percent.
= 120 Watts
Now take that times 70, for 70 percent.
= 140 Watts
ACTUAL power

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4410189&CatId=2234

I would recommend this one, but it requires 250 Watts MINIMUM,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=853908&CatId=2234

[Graphics card manufacturers, base the Minimum power requirements for their graphics cards; based on a test computer system.

So the Minimum power requirement stated, is not only for the graphics card; but ALSO the rest of the computer.
The test computer system is usually based, on all of the top of the line, power consuming hardware components; of that time

Top of the line powerful Processors, and Motherboards.
Add to that the maximum amount of Ram Memory, that can be used.
Two optical drives, (CD/DVD drive)
Processor fan, and at least two computer case fans ]

KNOW THIS:

A) 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, and BEFORE taking any new parts out of their Anti-Static bags, or cartons.

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

B) Windows running on your computer, PUT the Installation disk that comes with the graphics card, in your optical drive tray.
(CD/DVD drive)
Install ALL software.

There will be Drivers you are installing, and also a graphical user interface. (GUI)
The GUI for an Nvidia graphics card, (Evga GeForce 6200 is an Nvidia card), is the Nvidia Control Panel.

(For ATI it's Catalyst Control Center)

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

In this case the device is the graphics card.
What version of Windows operating system was not stated.

-> AFTER <- you have installed the software, and if it asks you do you wish to restart your computer; the answer is -> NO

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Now turn the computer off normally.

Follow Anti-Static Procedures, and Physically install the graphics card.
Note*
The AGP expansion slot on the motherboard, will have a type of Locking Arm on it. With most the end of the arm, has a 'fingerdip' in it.
Makes it look as though you press DOWN, on the end of the Locking Arm, in order to release it. (Unlock)

Actually you GENTLY pull up a little on the PLASTIC Locking Arm, to release it.
Release to remove the old graphics card, and to install the new one.

After the new graphics card is installed, attach the monitor cable to it, and close the computer case.
Turn the computer on.

You MAY have to go into the Nvidia Control Panel, and set Screen resolution, and other parameters.

(Look up your monitor by it's manufacturer name, and model number. {Back of monitor - Model Number}
See what the Screen resolution is.
Example - 1280 x 800 pixels

Set Color quality to High (32 bit)

Have additional questions please post in a Comment, or Reply.
(Below my solution)

[When a device is installed on a computer with Windows, Windows will 'break it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.
This = NO
A Driver Conflict can result.

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

With THE drivers installed first, Windows will find them.

I want to get a few more years out of my a450n so I began to upgrade some components. I first installed a sound card a few years ago to get 5.1 surround...no problems. Then I installed the max 2 gb of RAM...


If I've got the right unit, you have an AGP 8x slot which means you can get an AGP 8x graphics card. The selection of the AGP cards is not what it used to be so you make have to upgrade your PSU, depending on whats avalable. If I'm also got the right unit, it came with Nvidia GeForce FX5200 graphics and, I'm guessing that is intigrated. If the fan is a problem for you, you can get "spped fan" here:
http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
This will allow you to adjust your fan speeds.
As far as a Graphics card goes:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161318
Something like this would work for you, it requires a 300w power supply, others are available. The thing I like about the Radeon HD cards is that your can get the graphics and they have built in sound as well. If it doesn't come with the DVI adaptor, you can order one.

Hi my graphics card went out on my hp a620n desktop i was wondering if i had to get a specific type of graphics card to replace it. Any assistance helps!


i tought you were dead since it has an integrated graphic card, but it seems you have an expansion agp 8x slot.
you can buy a hold agp 8x graphic card for it.
anyway as a personal suggestion, don't buy a 100$ card for a pc that whose vlue would be arround 50$... buy a new cheap pc the would be enormously better than this!

New graphic card for Evesham Axis 64 3200


Are you asking about upgrading your graphics card?
Aslong as you get a graphics card that is AGP connection you will be fine.
They dont make AGP graphics cards anymore, but one of the last ones made (and most powerful is the Nvidia 7950 AGP) can be found all over ebay.
Its not a cheap card though, and a later edition nvidia 6 card would be just as good for you, such as an Nvidia 6800 AGP graphics card

Monitors wont work


It appears that you have a faulty graphics card.
If the graphics card is integrated with the motherboard then it cannot be repaired. Just purchase a new AGP graphics card, insert it into the AGP slot and connect your monitor to this card.
You may need to go to the BIOS setup to disable the on-board graphics card.
If you don't have an integrated graphics card, then buy a replacement graphics card.
You will need to install the new graphics drivers after installing the graphics card.
