Does he have a mic pluged in? If so make sure that the boost is turned off.Or make sure the mic is not too close to the speakers. That will cause feed back.

Unable to upgrade onboard graphics on dell gx520

Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. It must be supported by the graphics card. Sounds like your graphics card will not work with the game you purchased. To answer your question directly, you will need to install a graphics card that supports Pixel Shaders to be able to run games which need it.
The following cards support Shader Model 1.x: - ATI Radeon 85xx Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9000 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9100 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 92xx Series (1.4) - NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti (1.1) - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti (1.3)

Hello, Someone just game me their old pc, saying that the only thing wrong is the graphic card. The card installed is a Gainward GF2 MX-400 32MB GS (GK06428N031). The monitor is connected to CRT1. When I...

Well if you could open the pc and post me the model that reads on the motherboard to figure this one out, but if the card is build into the motherboard then only solution is to disable / turn off the video card and attach another card to the pc.

but if you can post me the brand / model that reads in the motherboard, its most likely on white text

if you look at this picture, the red circles, see the white text on the board, those details will be helpful..

Thank you
