Video card errors

I have a Dell Dimension 3000. It has a problem with choppy video and sound and various .exe errors. I replaced the sound card with a PCI card but nothing changed. Photoshop is having video card errors and is not working. The computer runs very slowly too.

If possible for you to take data backup - do that ASAP.
During POST [ Power On Self Test] turn on RAM checking [ disable fast mode checking ] from your BIOS/CMOS setup.
unplug and replug all H/W amd card connections - especially IDE SATA and PCI and RAM. Check if the fans are OK - get free from doubts - if the CPU cooling is the problem or not.
If all these do not help - it could be a virus problem.
If possible - do reload the OS and drivers from the scratch - get a good Anti-Virus and check your back-up data before copying them back.

Hi..

This is what happen to me also, but after i do some clean into my fan processor, fan graphic card, and do vacum inside my computer ( because has too much dust). Too much dust also can make your pc performance going bad.. settle about cpu performance.

Regarding you cant play mkv file and other video format. Did your computer has a software to make all video can run that we called codec code? Try to install it and play it. Maybe this software can help This is a link to download the codec code.

I have a dell dimension 3000. I want to add a 2nd monitor. I believe the video is integrated, Does the unit have a slot to add a video card. What kind of card should be added?


The Dimension 3000 Springdale G chipset supports AGP 8X cards, integrated video, integrated audio, ICH5, 533/800 MHz FSB, dual channel DDR 333/400 memory, integrated Serial ATA, and the Intel Pentium 4 Prescott.
The AGP 8X slot refers to Advanced Graphics Port. You can add a AGP video card if you motherboard has that slot. Usually that slot is encased by a green plastic enclosure .

How do i replsce the sound card on dell dimension


The sound card is on the mother board, but you can buy a PCI sound card and install it in one of the empty whit slots on the mother board.
I am not sure but you may need to dissable the onboard sound before you install the add in replacement sound card.
You can ask dell support if you need to do this, www.support.dell@dell.com
Good luck. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

I was just wondering if there is any way to upgrade dell dimension 3000 desktop`s video graphic card, thank you


Yes. It already has a decent video card but it has 3 pci slots available and you can use one of these for a better video card. My advice is anything Nvidia. The higher the number the better the card and higher the price

Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop Burned Out w/Memory Upgrade


Is the video card built into the motherboard? If not you can try replacing just the video card to see if that works. Otherwise I am afraid you may have to replace the motherboard.
