The problem wouldn't be overheating, the problem would does your power supply have a high enough wattage to run the card. Typically you want a power supply with at least 300-350 watts. Most store bought computers won't have a big enough power supply. Drop the card in and power up the computer. If it boots all the way your good if it doesn't, upgrade the power supply. You want hurt the computer by trying. Also when you open the tower up the wattage should be listed on the side of the power supply. There are plenty of cheap power supplies on line. Just looked on $30 for a 500W. Search YouTube on how to install, it's pretty easy.

Bad Power Supply. Weak Voltage power rail. Suggest you replace the Power Supply. Before you do, make sure you follow Anti-Static Precautions, and also clean out the inside of the computer, with a can of compressed air for computers, if it is dirty. Need to know how to open your computer case, and replace the Power Supply? State in a Comment (The Power Supply is a 200 Watt unit. It isn't the common ATX style of Power Supply. ATX power supply case size, is approximately 6 inches Long, 6 Inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall. The PSU (Power Supply Unit) that fits in your computer, is approximately 6 inches Wide, 3.75 inches Tall (3 and 3/4 inches), and 4 inches Long. Be prepared for a 'Sticker Shock' when you see the average price ) Should you want to test your Power Supply, before taking advice from a stranger, I would be happy to lead you through it. You'll need an economical Multimeter, or a power supply tester. State in a Comment if this is your intentions.

SOURCE: can' started my pc

As you are getting beeps when you try to boot up, that are not in any particular sequence, the problem is not easy to diagnose .
The cheapest solution if are confident in taking the cover off your pc is to

1) if you have more than one stick of ram swap them around & try to boot up,

2) if you only have one stick, replace the ram stick

if this does not fix it ,it is a motherboard or a cpu problem
that can mean big bucks.
good luck with that

I wanna know what video cards will fit my DC7600 convertible minitower

Your PC has a PCI-e x16 slot available for upgrading graphics cacapabilities. Any PCI-e x16 that is not double-slot wide or that requires a pcie power plug should work. If you take a look at the images at you can see which NVIDIA (Geforce) and Radeon based cards are double wide. Your PC just doesn't have the physical space for a fit. For Radeon cards 3000 series and below with the exception of not higher that an HD 3650 in the 3000 series. For NVIDIA based cards in the 7000 series and lower with a couple of exceptions. 8000 series: nothing higher than an 8600 model. 9000 series is a no go.
Your PSU is not capable of running the cards I mentioned as exceptions. Your PSU is less than 300W. Powerful video cards require more wattage and extra PCIe specific power connectors. Read the specs to ensure that the video card you are considering does not have any additional power requirements.
You can link to the cards you are considering and we will let you know if the will fit and work and why they will not if they are exceptions.

Can i put Nvidia 7300 SE 512mb 64bit video card on hp dc7600sff with 240 watt power suply will it work and not burn or overheat power suply or some other part?please help


Yes you should be able to install that card in the DC7600 as it is a low profile graphics card, however i would think about upgrading the power supply as 240 watts might be a struggle for the computer.

Make sure that the video card is compatible with the operating system. Also make sure that all peripherals attached to the computer have been fully updated along with any other device are software. Best options is to check your computer with the manufacture website for full update.

I want to upgrade video card for my pc(HP Pavillion a1120n) i wanted to know what kind of video card is compitible with my pc. please help thanks. ;)

From what I gather, your computer has a PCIe v1.0 slot for a video card upgrade and comes with intel on-board video. So you will need a PCIe 2.0 video card (v1.0 are no longer available and 2.0 are backwards compatible)

I assume, like most PC's, yours has a 350-450 Watt Power Supply. Check your power supply to be sure, you just can't put any video card, you are limited to the available power from the power supply. If you want a top of the line video card for gaming you will need a more powerful power supply. If all you need is better performance and better video quality (DVI/HDMI) then any sub $100 dollars card will do.

I cannot emphasize enough, check your power supply wattage capacity and the watts required by the new card before buying.

Also, do you have additional power connection from the power supply for the new card? most cards, not all, require a 6-pin PCIe power connector.

For the average user I recommend:
