The regular way is by accessing the inside of PC, reading the numbers on motherboard, or on AGP/PCI video card, and looking on google for the model.

An alternative is using software, even if this does not even work. See:

Added to graphics card to my ms7390 ver1 p7n sli platinam now it dont boot up. what do i do and what could b wrong


What could b wrong?

1) You didn't follow Anti-Static Precautions, and fried (Static Shock) the motherboard, etc, out.

2) The graphics card drivers and user interface software, has Not been installed; OR graphics card has been installed FIRST, and THEN drivers/software.

[Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Graphics card is the device, O/S wasn't stated.

User interface software {'control panel'}, is Cataylst Control Center for ATI, Nvidia Control Center for Nvidia ]

3) You didn't plug the monitor into the graphics card. It's lying on the table.

4) Graphics card requires a power cable. Power cable wasn't plugged in.

5) Graphics card requires more power than the old one did. Power Supply doesn't have enough Wattage.

6) Put graphics card in wrong expansion slot.

7) Bumped Ram Memory module/s ('Stick') loose, as happens 95 percent of the time a desktop computer is worked on.
Visual inspection alone will NOT do. Physically try to plug it/them in tighter.

7) The moon is in the seventh house, and Jupiter has aligned with Mars.

8) Your Uncle Lenny is fighting with your Aunt Mabel; and the ecosystem is in an uproar.

No video after boot up


Ahem.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device in question is the graphics chipset.

The Operating System is now Windows 7 64-bit.

You were running Windows XP -> 32bit

(Have you got audio? Sound)

This is why I repeatedly try to tell people;

LOOK TO SEE IF DRIVERS ARE AVAILABLE,
before trying to upgrade to frickin Windows 7!

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=M4A785TD-V+EVO&p=1&s=24

Yes sir; sure are.

+ VGA (3)
Suggest use the oldest version -
AMD VGA driver V8 631.0.0



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The reason Windows XP blue screened is because the Integrated Graphics of the Asus M4A785TD-V motherboard couldn\'t handle the game.

You need a graphics card. A PCI Express graphics card inserted into the BLUE PCI Express x16 expansion slot, on the motherboard.

(Remember; Install the software F-I-R-S-T, then unplug from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions; and THEN physically install the graphics card.
Software; The Installation Disk for the graphics card.
Has the Drivers, and user interface.
User Interface: Catalyst Control Center for ATI graphics cards;
Nvidia Control Center for Nvidia graphics cards)

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)

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo-Platinum.html#/?div=Detail

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,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

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:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

2) PCI-Express:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.

Any old standard PCI graphics card will work with this board as long as you stay within the power levels your PSU can put out. You can not put a PCI-E or PCI-Express card on this board because you lack the necessary slots. Make sure you double check the interface before purchasing another graphics card.

Look at the capacitors are they bloated, exploded, leaking? If so that could be your problem, and need to be replaced. If its anything else that burned out like some diode or resister good luck finding it. But first check on the caps, and replace any that are bad, if nothing else is evident, then just replace the card they are cheap.

I HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM....I HAVE AN ELITE MOTHERBOARD L4VXA2 AND WAS WORKING FINE WITH AN ATI RADEON X1300PRO GRAPHICS CARD 256MB AGP 8X....BUT AFTER SOME TIME...I HAVE A PROBLEM.....I PRESS THE START...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa Alex.
No, the battery isn't the problem as you stated that without the Card your PC runs smooth, what i can guess is that the Graphic card is gone, and to confirm this you need to cross-check it on some other PC that can support it. If on that PC the problem is same then its clear that the Graphic Card is gone. And I guess you know that if a Graphic card is of 8x Video output interface, and the Board interface is of 4x, then the Card will run under the compatibility of 4x. A 8x Graphic Card is actually 4x/8x Graphic Card.
I hope you have a clear picture now, and yes I know you will be wondering that how come the graphic card can burn, then fellow never ever trust electronics, they are arbitrary.
If you have any questions do ask, I'm here to help.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

Can i put a graphics card for my intel D915GVWB mother board?


You can not use PCI-EXPRESS graphics cards. Only AGP 2/4X Graphics Cards Supported ( 1.5V Only) You should look for This kind of Graphics cards.

I recommend , You must try changing your Motherboard with processor and buy a graphics card ( powerful one) to play these games. Otherwise You wont enjoy any of those games you mentioned.

n.b : a common PCI-E card has 16x speed where you cannot use more than 4x on your system.

About graphics card slot..


The board has a pci express port on it. You can install any video card which uses the PCI-E x16 interface. Almost all new video cards use this interface.

Your board also has an onboard video card (ATI x300 model). You don't actually need a graphics card unless you want the better performance for games.
