Nvidia and AMD (formally ATI) are chip makers for video cards. Your slot is PCI-e x16, which is good because it may allow physically smaller cards to be inserted. Don't think about the size since your's is x16, but rather the version of PCI-e.

So, if your slot is PCI-e x16 version 1. Don't purchase a version 2 card. It is not compatible. On the other, hand if you have a PCI-e x16 version 2 you can add ver 1 or ver 2 card. The slot is backward compatible.

Hope this make sense and is not too confusing.

SOURCE: I have a NVIDIA nForce

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. Nvidia Quadro NVS will not support SLI function unlike the Geforece GTX 460. If you are planning to SLI the 2 video card it would be impossible. If you want to create a 2way or 3way SLI you need to use an identical Video card. Quadro was made for multi display for workstations to run applications like Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, Bloomberg, Thomas Reuters and Windows Media Player across multiple screens unlike the GTX version that are for high end gaming.
If you have questions please let me know. Thanks

No sir, is the answer.

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

B) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

You need an AGP 8X graphics card.
Here is but one example,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161337

You also need to look at what your Power Supply maximum rated Wattage is. Then look at the system requirements for the graphics card, and see what the -> MINIMUM power supply requirement is.

For the above graphics card it is 400 Watts, OR greater.

What would be the best compatible 512 MB GPU(with shader 3 or 4) working with P4I45GV 3.00 /P4 2.4 GHZ/1 Gb ram ?


http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?Model=P4i45GV%20R5.0

Any of them Shubham.

If we are to discern by a few known statements;

1) It is believed in some 'geek communities', that using the same manufacturer of motherboard chipset, and graphics chipset; to be a good thing.

For example an AMD motherboard chipset 'plays well' with an AMD ATI graphics chipset;

Nvidia motherboard chipset 'plays well' with Nvidia graphics chipset.

Intel motherboard chipset with Intel graphics..............no wait,....... there is no Intel graphics chipset, unless it is -> Integrated Graphics.
[ Intel GMA ]

(Integrated Graphics is also said as OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD)

2) DOES NOT MATTER what graphics memory type is used.

Motherboard can use DDR Sdram ram memory, and graphics card can use GDDR5.

Why?
Because the graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.

Graphics Processing Unit, or GPU; is the Processor,

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

Graphics memory is the ram memory.

Operates independent of the system resources.
Processor, and Ram Memory.

The graphics expansion slot on the P4I45GV (P4 i 45GV), is an AGP slot.
Accelerated Graphics Port,

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

It will use an AGP 4X, or AGP 8X graphics card.
Use an AGP 8X.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/search.asp?keywords=agp+graphics+card+512mb

REMEMBER;

1) ALWAYS follow Anti-Static Precautions.

2) INSTALL the software for the graphics card F-I-R-S-T,
(Drivers and 'control panel')

THEN unplug the computer from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions, and Physically plug the graphics card into the motherboard, and install.

3) L@@k at the system requirements (Minimum) for the graphics card.
Specifically the Power Supply requirements. You need a Power Supply with enough Wattage, to handle the graphics card.

Mainboard: g31 m7 te - power: antec hcg750 - gpu: gtx560ti


No the mobo is compatible with the Power Supply, and GPU.
And vice-versa.

Mainboard fan???????
You mean the Processor (CPU) fan?

I'm guessing I guess, because computer case fans aren't on the motherboard/mainboard/mobo.
(MOtherBOard)

You're getting power to the mobo, but the question is how much?

1) IF ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

http://206.108.48.60/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=363&tab=1

The mobo will support Intel Core2 Quad-Core processors. Depending on which one, you may be talking about Up To 105 Watts of power,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Quad-Core_Desktop_processors

This is why LED's can light, and fans may spin, but the Processor isn't getting enough power, so the computer will not turn on. (Processor isn't turning on)

Why?

1) Just because that Power Supply is new, doesn't mean it is good.
Sometimes you get a bad one. Test the three main voltages coming out, with a multimeter set to DC Voltage.

Need guidance post back in a Comment.
(An economical multimeter can be purchased, for as little as $8 to $12. I have seen cheaper. Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example )

2) You don't have the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugged in.
Goes to the white square 4-socket hole connector, to the left top corner of the Processor socket.
(Motherboard installed in computer case)

3) REQUIRES -> TWO 6-pin PCI-Express power cables, for the Nvidia GTX560Ti graphics card.

The Antec HCG750 PSU has 4 of them, so no problem there, IF you have two of them plugged into the graphics card.

Both connectors of the 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable's connector, need to be used. Biostar mobo requires a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371049

Post back in a Comment as to power cables plugged in, and DC Voltage test on PSU.

Is that the ATI Radeon HD 4570 GPU Compatible with the ASPIRE 5535 Laptop


Have you tried applying a little heat to your original GPU to see if it works. Wrap the motherboard in some aluminum foil and leave the GPU Video Card exposed then take a Hair Blow Dryer and put it on high and apply heat to it for about a minute or two using a sweeping motion (not sitting in the same place). Take something like a pencil with an eraser and push down on the edges and in the middle of the GPU to help it reseat itself. Repeat the steps for another time or two then remove the aluminum foil and let it cool off before putting the board back into the laptop. You might be surprised because I've done it lots of times to bring a bad video back card back to life.

Replacemother board dv 8000 hp lap top and trunall ligths trun on but blac k screen.


I'm going to assume it was yourself, or someone besides a tech, who installed this motherboard.
A tech would have the machine working before giving it back.

A) What was the original problem? Why motherboard replacement?

B) Do you know for a fact that the replacement motherboard is a good working unit?
Bought from a reputable dealer, or history of motherboard is known?

C) Did you follow Anti-Static Precautions, and used a ESD wrist strap, and connected it's alligator clip to a good ground source?

D) How acquainted are you with the design of a laptop's cooling system?
Aware of the basic design?

1) Air is drawn in for the cooling system usually from the Bottom of the laptop.
(Air Intake Duct. It is expelled through the Exhaust Port)

2) The air is drawn straight up into the cooling Fan.
Air then is pushed through the fins of the Heatsink

There is a Cooling Tube usually made of Aluminum or Copper. One end is attached to the finned Heatsink.
The other end is usually attached to a small metal plate.
This metal plate sits on top of the Processor.

Heat from the Processor is absorbed by the small plate. The heat is then transferred to the Cooling Tube. (Cooling Tube absorbs heat from the small plate)

The Cooling Tube then transfers the heat to the Heatsink.
The Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with the tall, thin fins.
Air going through the fins, and around the fins, helps to carry the heat away.

Also on the same end as the Processor, is usually another small metal plate. This plate sits on top of the GPU.
Graphics Processing Unit, or simply stated as the graphics chipset.
(Essentially the 'Graphics Engine')

The Processor, and the GPU, are the TWO hardware components that PRODUCE the most HEAT.


Example of basic laptop cooling design I referred to above,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-hp-pavilion-dv6-laptop/

Scroll down to Step 29.
Here you see the black Fan Assembly.
To the immediate left of it is the finned Heatsink. Black in color, fins are not visible.

Coming down on the left from the Heatsink is a copper Cooling Tube.
Most of it's length is attached to an aluminum plate.
(Three machine screws hold the plate to the motherboard)

The aluminum plate you see is covering the top of the Processor, and also the GPU sitting next to it.

Point?
In looking at the Heatsink/Fan/Cooling Tube combination, for the HP Pavilion dv8000 series of Notebook PC's, I do not see a metal plate for the GPU.

I only see that the Processor is covered by a metal plate.

Examples;

1) http://www.pchub.com/uph/laptop/423-55686-4713/HP-Pavilion-dv8000-Series-Cooling-Heatsink.html

2) http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-DV8000-8100-8200-Heatsink-Fan-Assembly-403826-001_W0QQitemZ280451159745QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0

Heatsink with copper Cooling Tube attached, and small metal plate at the end for the Processor,

3) http://www.laptoppartsexpert.com/i-5846952-cpu-heatsink.html

4) Motherboard,

http://www.global-motherboard.co.uk/hp-motherboard/HP-Pavilion-DV8000-Motherboard-403835-001.html

This means there is no cooling for the GPU, except for air that may make it's way around, in the inside of the laptop.

Point?

A GPU is mounted to the motherboard with a BGA Surface Mount.
Ball Grid Array.

To explain a BGA surface mount;

Your motherboard has an AMD processor socket (Mobile) that an AMD processor fits in.
The socket has the socket holes, and the Processor has the contact pins, which go into the socket holes.

With a BGA surface mount there are no contact pins, or socket holes.
There are Copper Pads, and Solder Balls,

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

The bottom of the GPU chipset has Solder Balls.
The surface of the motherboard has matching Copper Pads.

The GPU is set into place with the Solder Balls lining up, to the matching Copper Pads on the motherboard.

Heat is then applied at a certain specific temperature, and length of time.
The Solder Balls melt, which solders the GPU to the motherboard.
(Solders the GPU to the Copper Pads on the motherboard)

IF, a GPU constantly overheats, the solder connections start to melt. This creates cold solder joints, and a black display on the laptop's internal monitor.

To summarize;

A) The motherboard that has been installed may have the same problem as the original one, if the problem was poor contact for the GPU.

B) If you did not follow Anti-Static Precautions, there's a good chance the motherboard is now an expensive paperweight, or doorstop.

I have HP DV dv6835nr laptop . It was working properly untill few days ago when the display screen showed some flickering and after few mins , its went to blank but the application windows and forms can be...


Your diagnosis is correct abhisheks27, it is a graphics 'engine' issue.

The HP Pavilion dv6835nr is one of the HP Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's.

The Pavilion dv6000 series Notebook PC's have an issue with inadequate cooling for the GPU.

{Graphics Processing Unit, or graphics chipset,

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

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The cooling system consists of the Fan Assembly, Heatsink, and Cooling Tube.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-hp-pavilion-dv6500-dv6600-dv6700-dv6800-notebooks/

Scroll down the page to Step 18, and it's second photo.
Here you are looking down at the top of the laptop, and can see the Fan Assembly, in the top left corner.

Steps 25 and 26 show the bottom of the motherboard, the Fan Assembly, Heatsink, and Cooling Tube.

The Cooling Tube is a hollow copper tube, slightly flat, and is filled with Nitrogen.
You can see it's curved J shape.

Looking at the photo in Step 25 observe the aluminum looking X shape, at the left side of the Cooling Tube. It has 4 red circles marking it's mounting screws.

This X-shaped object is a flat plate. It is a type of Heatsink.
This particular metal plate sits on top of the Processor.

Heat from the Processor is absorbed by this plate, then transferred to the Cooling Tube.

Observe the next aluminum looking plate to the right. Looks like a square tab, attached to the side of the Cooling Tube.
This metal plate sits on top of the GPU.

Heat is from the GPU is absorbed by this plate, and transferred to the Cooling Tube.

{Step 26 shows the top of the Processor uncovered, {Processor (CPU) }, and the GPU uncovered.
The GPU is the greenish square to the right of the Processor }

The cooling area (Size) of the small plate of metal, that sits on top of the GPU, is inadequate.
It cannot absorb enough heat away from the GPU.

This leads to the GPU overheating.

The GPU is mounted to the laptop's motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array.

To explain the BGA surface mount technology, I'm going to use an older Socket 478 Intel processor.

The Socket 478 Intel processor's have pins on the bottom of them. These pins line up with socket holes in the processor socket.

With the BGA surface mount there are no pins on the bottom of the chipset. (Chipset circuit board, actually)
There are Solder Balls in place of the pins.

On the motherboard there is no socket. In it's place there are Copper Pads.

The chipset is set into place on the motherboard, with the solder balls lining up with the copper pads.
A specified temperature of heat is applied, and this melts the solder balls. The chipset is soldered to the copper pads on the motherboard.

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

When the chipset overheats, (In this case the chipset is the GPU), the solder balls start to partially melt again.
This causes a poor connection due to cold solder joints.

{The solder balls have melted, and rehardened again. Not done properly this causes a cold solder joint }

The poor contact of the GPU to the motherboard caused by inadequate cooling, is the problem.

The solution is too have the GPU's BGA surface mount reflowed, and to install a better Heatsink plate for it, or add to the heatsink plate.

This is to show you more in-depth as to the problem. It also shows a possible solution.

I am Not providing this link for the possible solution it provides. The tech is also advertising selling a repair. I do not advertise for other people, and know nothing of this tech.

Hi!

Nahh...you can use that gpu with that mobo, but i wouldent recomend it. The GPU - Requires NVIDIA HybridPower™- enabled motherboard, and that mobo dosent have that. It might work but you cant use the full power of that gpu on that mobo. And beside that, that gpu is bigger then the mobo itself
I sugest you to buy another mobo, the gpu you looking at is a good one but your mobo isent that good.

Graphics Card Compatibility with Asus M2A-MX motherboard


Hi Anli!

Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.

Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.

Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.

Good luck with your new card M8!
