It all depends. Does the card require a 6 pin PCI-E power connection? Does your power supply have such a connector? If both answers are yes then it is possible. If the card does not require a power connection then it is also possible. But I would recommend upgrading to at least a 450 watt psu to run it more efficiently. Hope this helps.

No picture with GeForce 210 graphics card


Picture? Are you saying it does not work? Is this a new install? Is it setup/installed correctly? Have you installed the software? Drivers? Need more info.

Video upgrade


it depends upon your mb. some mb can support pci and agp . some of them support pci and pci-ex . so if your mb has agp or pci-ex slot than you have to buy a video card according to that. video cards range from 128mb to 1024 mb. you have to check your motherboard specification which card it can support. also it depends upon the power supply unit. need at least 300 watts for 128 mb - 256 mb card.

Hp compaq d530 400 watt power supply


You will not find a power supply for this case. Why would you want to upgrade such an old computer? Get yourself a new one with amply power for your needs. If you are one that upgrades regularly, get a standard case with standard components that can be upgraded without the hassle of replacing proprietary form-factor compnents.

No video


HI,
You can go into the BIOS , under onboard devices. Change the primary video controller to PCI.
refer to the following screen
http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/syssetup.htm#wp1052347

If the cards are not detected on the board. Then the problem could be of the PCIe slot .


Thanks

It may be necessary to enter the BIOS setup to disable the integrated video and/or turn on the PCI slot(s).
It varies but entering the BIOS setup uses one or more keys (sometimes Esc, sometimes F1) that are pressed right after power on. Check your user guide to see which key give you access.
Most systems aren't smart enough to do that on their own and you may have the system looking at two video processors at the same time and is unable to resolve the conflict.

Will a DDR Ram work with a DDR2 Video card?


The on board memory on the graphics card being DDR2 will NOT affect the system memory being DDR.

And the memory you want to add depends on the memory you have allready installed on your machine and what version of windows you are running.

Please post back with more info on this.
