Are you sure that the card is PCI? Are you sure the slot you are trying to use is PCI?

Check out the wikipedia article. Near the end is a diagram that shows the card and slot layout(s).

Hi, Is Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 Silence 1GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI Low Profile PCI-Express Video Card capable for my Compaq HP Presario SR2020NX? -thanks a lot.


You mean will the Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 with 1GB of graphics memory, work in a Compaq Presario SR2020NX Desktop PC?

Yes.

The Compaq Presario SR2020NX Desktop PC has a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00757470&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3245048

{Motherboard illustration and photo are towards the bottom of the page}

Look at the specifications.
Scroll down to the heading - Expansion slots.

Three PCI. (PCI expansion slots)

One PCI Express x16 graphics.

NOTE*
Looking at the motherboard illustration, it is Wrong.
Shows - PCIEX1 (PCI E X1)
According to the specifications it is a PCIEX16 expansion slot. (PCI-E x16)

A PCI-Express x1 slot has 36 contact pins. 18 on each side.

In comparison a PCI slot {White} has 124 contact pins. 62 on each side.

Looking at the photo of the supposed PCI-E x1 slot they show, the black PCI-Ex1 slot is longer than the white PCI slots.

It is a PCI-Express x16 slot with 164 pins. 82 on each side.



The Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 uses a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.

So you know the graphics card will fit. Low-profile to boot.

Power requirement:
The Compaq Presario SR2020NX desktop computer comes with a 300 Watt power supply.
(Although in actuality it's more like 70 percent of the maximum rated wattage. 210 Watts)

Enough power for the computer, and the graphics card.
ATI graphics cards do not use as much power as a comparable Nvidia graphics card.

Concerned that the Asus graphics card uses DDR3 graphics ram memory, and the Presario SR2020NX uses DDR2 Sdram ram memory?

Don't be. The graphics cards graphics memory runs independent of the computer's ram memory.

I just need to know if thisHp compaq presario sr2020nx pc desktop is wifi compatible


Yes it is compatible although you will need to fit your own Wifi card. There are two types of card, PCI and USB. To fit a PCI card you will need to open up the PC and install the card into a spare PCI slot. To fit a USB card you simply plug it into any spare external USB socket.

Type of video card


The Compaq Presario SR1630NX desktop computer, has a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard, for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The Presario SR1630NX came out in 2005.
PCI-Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007.

The Presario SR1630NX uses the PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, however.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just won't get the full capability, of a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

Will you notice?

NO

MY XFX8500GT CARD WON'T FIT INTO ANY OF THE CPI SLOTS IN MY COMPAC PC,CAN I USE THE BLACK ISA SLOT?


That card is a PCI EXPRESS. Not the same as a PCI. Definetely wont work in your ISA either. PCI Express came out a few years ago and is a faster interface than PCI. Hope you can get your money back or exchange it for a PCI. Please remember to rate me if this fixedYa. Thanks.

HELP WITH SOUND BLASTER PCI 128


Refer to this link
http://www2.hawaii.edu/~elton/computer/4712.html

You have the PCI slot but that your graphic card has occupied already if you have one and you can add a PCI expansion card which has a PCI slot on it as per these tech specs of your system. For that now you need to contact your hardware vendor that is Compaq
