To be honest, Are you a power user meaning are you a gamer for online games. If you are than yes I would get a better graphics video card. I personally like radeon made by ATI. They are under the umbrella of amd. So go to and look at the various video cards. As for your power supply, do you keep your computer on, all the time? Power supply and video cards are easy to change out. You can get a 500 watt power supply for about 60 bucks. As for the video card, look at how many mb or megabytes the video card has. I personally on my video card have 512mb which is more than sufficient for my needs. If you are heavy into gamin some people go for the 2 gb of memory for their video cards but if you get that, that means you will have to update a lot of things on your computer such as the motherboard. I would assume your video card is 128mb or less. I would just make sure you have good memory in your computer. go to and run the memory scan and it will tell you what the max memory you can put in your computer and how many slots you have in your computer as well as the type of memory you need. I would say 2gb of memory will be good and you won't have to worry about your graphics card since you have plenty of memory. I will also suggest Its a free memory cleaner and I use it religiously just to clean the **** out....ccleaner stands for **** cleaner. I hope this helps

Howe to connect the power cabel to my new graphic card

Firstly, you need to have a power supply that meets the power (Watts) and current (Amps) of your card. Check your video card's documentation to verify this, and look for a sticker on your power supply to give you more information about your power supply's Wattage and Amperage ratings.
Next, if your video card needs additional power (it will have a molex 4 pin (like a floppy drive uses), or a 4 or 6 pin PCI Express Power plug. In case your power supply does not provide you with this type of power connector, many video cards include a 4 pin Molex to PCIE adapter. Again, make sure you meet the power requirements for your card, or it will likely die prematurely due to under-current conditions.
If you are using an adapter, plug a hard drive or CD-ROM drive power connector in on one side and to the video card on the other.
IF your power supply provides the correct power connector, use that one side goes to the power supply, and the other to the video card.
(It's less hinky that way, and I think it gets it off the same circuit with the other devices.
Good Luck!

Hi again.... u just wrote me an answer for my power supply surges problems "Hi i just bought an asus m4a88td-m i instaled it with a amd phenom II x4, 500 watts corsair power supply, ati radeon hd...

Ive been playing around with pcs for 20 years. Im not a professional in the field, BUT.. Just booting up, a 250 watt will do it. Now, if you are playing a power hungry game you would expect it to fail then. I think maybe the PSU you have has a problem. So, you should return it and probably upgrade while you are at it. So, same answer.. NEW PSU. And... You do not want to run a system underpowered for any extended time. You can stress any number of components.

Gateway GT5032 add a video card on PCI E slot and no video shows.


Please check if the following is in order:

  1. Make sure the graphics card is seeded correctly in the PCI-Express slot.
  2. Make sure that the graphics card has power.
  3. Make sure your screen cable is connected to the graphics card and not the on-board connector.

You also have to install the graphics drivers that came with the card to get a proper resolution on your screen.

Hope this helps!
Please let me know if this information was useful!

Kind Regards

No power black screen. Red light lite on botom right corner. Replaced power supply; same problem. An suggestions?

Sounds like a failed power board inside the TV, not the power supply. Unfortunately this is a very difficult repair, and unless you are an electrician I would not recommend attempting it. You will need to contact a local TV repair person in your area. If you think it may still be under warranty please contact the manufacturer to file an RMA. If you happened to purchase the TV with a major credit card (not a debit card) there is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.

So sorry that I don't have better news but it is definitely a power issue internally.

Getting a new psu

I'm not sure about the size, but this may be what you are looking for:

Most power supplies are a standard size, but I'm not sure about your model of HP. The from the photos on the HP site, it looks like a standard mid-tower case and it should fit.

All the time less 0.13 GB of RAM

your computer is using your memory for the video card. This is normal because it is compensating for your weak video card.

Dell computers are hard to upgrade.

hi will

yes these cards uses a lot of power. Check to see if the power supply pushes enough power to run the video card. I think these card needs its own power source so make sure you use a sepearate cable from the powersupply to the video card and not share it with other components.

if you have less than 400w powersupply thne this is morelikely your problem

good luck

If it is a AGP card it is not possible that the graphics card can make the keyboard and mouse not respond.
If it is a PCI card there is a chance that it can do what you mentioned.
Also it could be the size of the graphics card, a 512 mg card can sometimes need a 500W power supply so you could get your power supply diagnosed as well.
Hope this helps
