You may have ahad a glitch in the system, go into your bios (F2 or DEL)on boot up and and go into the menu pci and peripherals or similair and look down to the primary graphics controller to see if you are able to set it to your agp card from onboard. If so save settings and exit and try again, but theres noting to say that your graphics card isn't faulty.

I want to change cpu settings in bios i can get in but can't seem to change it

Why do you want to change CPU settings? Are you trying to overclock your processor? Packard Bell is a bottom of the line desktop (now owned by Acer) and I am sure they have no BIOS support for tweaking the CPU settings.

The best you can fit is an AGP 8X type card. They are difficult to find now, so the prices of decent cards are going up. Your computer is about 3 generations behind, You would get better graphics performance by buying a new motherboard, CPU and memory bundle. It would be cheaper in the long run, as you could then upgrade the graphics card in the future and then upgrade the CPU as well. You can still keep the case and other computer peripherals you already use. But if you want an AGP card look on the Auction sites.

Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?

The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

2) PCI-Express:

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

Can i upgrade my packard bell 5090 motherboard?

No. And old isn't what your PC's ancient. Packard Bell machines from that era were in proprietary cases, making upgrades difficult if not impossible. Additionally, the power supply will probably be underpowered and will may not have the correct power connectors for modern mainboards . It's time to part with the old relic and get a new one.

Upgrade the existing graphics card. GEForce 4 MX440

Yes you can upgrade the card. For information regarding video card refer to website belwo

You can purchase teh AGP video card for the computer with higher memory.

Currently your video card is with 64Mb, try for 512MB or higher version. Do not go for PCI Express or PCI video card. The computer will support only AGP.

From the looks of your system, Its a pentium D 915 CPU, with integrated graphics.
From the spec sheets, you should be able to upgrade to even an 8800 series, although that would require you to purchase a higher wattage power supply.
My recommendation is:
if you want graphics grunt for later model games, (i.e shooters like CoD4) the card you need (without needing a new PSU) would be the 8600gt. This is an excellent card and does not require external power.
If you want a cost-effective option, go with the 8500gt or an ati (amd) something equivalent. They arent the fastest cards out, but they will do a better job than the integrated graphics.

Hope that helps,
