SOURCE: GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card doesn't work

contact the shop / place you purchased it from and they should be able to give you info of where to send it and what to do - they should have a section on there website where you can go through the return process and you will most likely need to get an RMA number to authorise the return / replacement.

SOURCE: Graphics Comparison

I beleive that your onboard is pretty much the equivelent to the geforce card you have spec-wise. But the 3300 a much new technology and has a faster processing speed in comparison to the geforce 6600 (not sure about the 7200).

In anycase, if you get yourself another ATI HD card (2400, 3450, or 3470) you can actually run them both as a Crossfire set up. Also, you can slight overclock your onboard video just a tad if that is a route you wanted to take.

The HD 3300 onboard was meant to be a better option over more entry level cards on the market today.

If you're still not sure, you can always do a 3dmark or gaming FPS test on each gpu to see which gives you the best outcomes.

SOURCE: nvidia geforce 9400gt 1gb card problem

The maximum performance of your video card is limited by the hardware you attach it to. In the display properties of Windows, your highest resolution is 1280x1024 because your monitor is not able to go any higher than this. This resolution is a typical maximum for a 17" monitor. Some 15" can do this, and some 19" can do this. In order to get a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor with a higher native resolution. For example, a nice 24" monitor can only do 1920x1200. The video card can go higher, but it's limited by the monitor. 32bit color is your highest setting - that's 16 million colors. Your video card's 1GB of RAM only determines how much rendered data (usually 3D) it can store and move at any given moment, which is related to but not determined by your screen resolution. That's a very nice card - you should be able to get very good frame rates, color, and performance out of 32bit color and 1280x1024. If you want a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor.

I have a compaq presario cq61-410US and I use it a lot to play a game called League of Legends. It often has fps drops and freeze ups though. Im not sure if it's because of the computer proccessor


You have a Graphics Adapter integrated into the Motherboard it's not upgradable Disabling unnecessary processes will help quite a bit. Adding more RAM is a option, depending on your OS, 32 or 64bit? 32bit will use 3.80GB's or so, 64bit 4GB's or more. your specs say you have Windows 7 64bit with 2GB's of memory, is that correct? If so add up to 4GB's of Memory Max, SEE: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c01966130 In the BIOS you MAY be able to adjust/increase more Shared Video memory? The game usually has a Optimal Setting for your machine. Have you done ALL your Updates for Windows and HP? ALSO I use RAZER GAME BOOSTER freeware on my lower spec machines to disable ALL unnecessary processes, you configure what you want to disable during game play: http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html Give it a try , it's safe, free and works for me.

Freezing


Probably not a power issue if games play ok.
Could be your computer processor is too slow, not enough ram, driver settings, video codecs, graphics drivers or combination of any of them.

Low frames per second while gaming


The FPS in your games is primarily controlled by your graphics card. The better the card the better the fps. To get the best possible fps in gaming you should be using a good quality card like the NVidia GTX 260 card or better or an ATI Radeon 4870 or better. If you have the money you might want to upgrade. If not try turning off all but your essential background processes & see if that helps. Good luck.
