I own a Dell Inspiron 531S. I'd like to get a new graphics card. I currently have a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. I don't want to spend too much for this but I'd like to run my Second Life game with better graphics. What do you recommend and how to I retrieve it?

When you install a new video card you must disable the onboard video card by going into the bios setup. Below I have listed the requirements of Second life game. e 531 does come with PCI-E slots so make sure you buy a VIDEO card with PCI-E Walmart sells some pretty decent priced Graphics cards. pretty much any pci-e card you buy new in walmart these days will be fine for this game.

PC Minimum System Recommendations:

* Internet Connection*: Cable or DSL

* Computer Processor: 1.6GHz Pentium 4 or Athlon 2000+ or better

* Computer Memory: 512MB or better

* Video/Graphics Card**:
o nVidia GeForce FX 5600, GeForce 6600, or better
o OR ATI Radeon 9600, X600, or better

Quickbooks conflict with nvidia


If you installed the latest NVIDIA drivers, did you also try installing a different PDF printer driver? I would suggest try installing a different PDF printer driver like PDF995 or Foxit Reader. Post back how it works out.

Try to Update the Nvidia driver by downloading it to NVidia Website. if you still have the same problem it might be some application/programs running in the background. you may check task manager> processes and see if what processes are running.

Computer crashes and vista says it is NVIDA Geforce


If I were you I'd wait for the next driver update. ALso, you could try sending Nvidia a complaint about this, so they know they've got to fix it.

I hope this helps,

I have a Dell Inspiron 531S, AMD Sempron LE-1300, 2.31 GHz, 1.93 GB RAM. My current graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. I play Second Life online and need the best graphics card I can...


NVidia 8400GS PCI card is a pretty good card that isn't oversized, and the best thing is that all computers have a PCI slot so you shouldn't have problems with fitting/compatability. They're in any electronic store like best buy, etc. I had that card and played WoW/warhammer very well on it.

New Graphics Card


Not too much is a relative term, so I'll leave that up to you. When I want to upgrade parts and pieces, I always check a number of sites to compare prices and reviews. Some of my favorites (and others will have their own favorites) are Tiger Direct, NewEgg, MicroCenter, Geeks.com to name a few. The difference in prices may be just a buck or two on some items, but you'll stumble across really great deals from time to time.
