It may be necessary to enter the BIOS setup to disable the integrated video and/or turn on the PCI slot(s).
It varies but entering the BIOS setup uses one or more keys (sometimes Esc, sometimes F1) that are pressed right after power on. Check your user guide to see which key give you access.
Most systems aren't smart enough to do that on their own and you may have the system looking at two video processors at the same time and is unable to resolve the conflict.

The graphics card in my HP Pavilion Slimline s3600t computer went out. The invoice states "512 MB NVIDIA GeForce 9500GS DVI-1, HDMI, VGA Adapter". On the card it says Model P729. How can I find a


How can you find what???
If you mean find the same identical card, there are lots of the on eBay, but I'm not sure that can find a "New" one, unless you get lucky.
You can also type "shop for nvidia geforce 9500gs" on Google, and see what it brings up. You will see plenty of links that you may use as resources, or to buy from.
Here is an example on eBay:

Otherwise, an equivalent card should work just fine

Google both "PCIe" and " AGP " in images to see what one best matches your old graphics card. After that you can go on newegg.com or another electronics store, even possibly a bestbuy and purchase a card with the same style of port. If you do not have a PCIe or a AGP slot on your machine then you may not be able to upgrade the graphics.

To be quite honest you do not need all that for watching a good quality movie! Your processor is good enough! As long as you got a nice upgrade on your video card and sound! A nice Player and enough Ram you will have great video playback.... I hope this helps you decide.. Good luck to you!

Have to replace Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS video card


Yes, the card will work as your board has a PCI Express x16 slot according to the eMachines Specs

Just don't expect performance miracles out of it, while better than your on-board video it is definitely not "enthusiast" grade.

Will a 512 mb video card work with a 300 watt power supply


It all depends. Does the card require a 6 pin PCI-E power connection? Does your power supply have such a connector? If both answers are yes then it is possible. If the card does not require a power connection then it is also possible. But I would recommend upgrading to at least a 450 watt psu to run it more efficiently. Hope this helps.
