Graphic card or Power supply?

I have an asrock alivenf6p-vsta M/B it has a generic 400w power supply. My problem is the onboard graphics can power my 22" screen at high resolution,full hardware acceleration but when I added an x1950xt I had to lower the resolution and halve the hardware acceleration just to get it to boot and 10 minutes into a game the screen goes blank but I sometimes hear the game still going. I've tried Ati's and Omega drivers. thanks

Compaq 1930nx no power


May be the PSU. This PC has a few miles on it ,right? I had a HP/Compaq SR1120nx when the PSU when out it would try to start and immediately shut down. Over and over. A PSU is not that expensive. Be sure to get the same type ATX connectors. Verify it is a ATX. Mine was 400w for under $50.00. I uped the power from 250w to 400w, I had added Graphic card, sound card, wi-fi card.

Which video card do i use in a vcg rb50


Dear,
you have pci express slot that supports high graphic card. You can buy a high graphic vga card but it relates with your power supply too. Check your power supply wattage and then buy the vga card accordingly because high graphic vga card require more power from supply.

There are alot of pci slot supported card in the market.

best of luck!

Prime95 won't tax the video card, you'd need something like 3Dmark or Everest. It's most likely a power issue. Upgrade to a 500W minimum, the higher the better. Check NewEgg, Slickdeals.net, dealzon.com for deals. The power supply's the last place you want to cheap out - get a good one.

Try to start your computer into a safe mode and then remove the old graphic card driver but if you cant get to safe mode then probably theres a problem with your operating system. Consider reformat and install a fresh copy of any OS you prefered.

What the best 250watt video card for my acer m1640?


Dirtdog,

I'm sorry to tell you, but if you want a high end Videocard in your system, you will likely need to replace your power supply.

Any person who knows much about computer Modding/Gaming will tell you if you want a PC with a modern Videocard, you will need at least a 400W Power Supply Unit,

I like you bought an ACER desktop that had onboard video in my case it was Geforce 6100. Then I bought a BFG 9600GT. Only to find my PC freezing on boot up.

The problem went away son as I upgraded to a 465W PSU. But now my System is running awesome graphics and gets a 4.8 out of 5 on Vistas 3D card performance.

Hope this helps you
Dave

do you have onboard video as well and a video card in?

if so place the cord into the onboard and see if it fires up properly

if so then refer to your bios to turn it off and use your video card for the video and then it should work fine.
