    If there is a separate video card in your computer, you need to know what kind it is.
    First, what color is the slot that it is in? This will tell us basically what kind of card you have.
    For instance, a white slot means it's a PCI card, a brown slot means it's an AGP (but there are several types) and a black slot (or can be orange or green) means it's a PCI-E card.
    Perhaps you can take the card out and tell us what brand it is or even the model which many times is printed on the card.

That is untrue, who told you they are all the same.

when i type in any video card drive i get 8.1 million

when i type windows video card drivers i get 2.5 milloin

when i type in trident video cards i get 62 thousand.

Desk top dell has a black screen

If your dealing with a black screen on a dell desktop it could mean a couple things. First make sure your monitor is connected to the back of the computer. Second make sure its connected to the right video card because there may be 2 of them. The one at the top is the on board video and a lot of people add a better one in a pci slot towards the bottom. In event that is not the case and the monitor is turned on it could be a faulty video card, bad driver, or the video card needs reseated.
1. turn off computer Sometimes when moving desktops pci cards are jarred and need reseated.
2. Open the case at the back by removing the two screws holding on the side panel
3. then remove the screw that is holding the pci video card, pull out the card
4.then reseat
6. restart
if this doesn't fix the issue then buy a video card that is compatibly to your motherboard and replace it

if it is an onboard video card buy a pci or pci-e or a video card that is compatible for your computer

I have a gateway 509GE desk top, with no "video out" source on desk top. it has 915g express chipset graphics card.. i alsp have an old SIS 6362 Rev C5 Graphics Card from on old Micron Elect Inc....

If these things are true:
The composite connector on the card is for input.
The computer has a compatible card slot for the graphics card.
The TV has a composite connector for output.
There is a driver for the card that is compatible with your OS.
You have video capture software.

If not, purchase a video capture device/card. I recommend

I hope this helps.

I would like to know what are the replacement parts for a video card and sound card for my Gateway GM5480E, or suitable parts.

You have a PCI Express slot on this computer (the black slot that run horizontally on the bottom half of the board. It is compatible with PCIE spec 1.0, so whatever video card you get MUST be 1.0 spec. The 2.0 spec won't work. You did not provide the information on your power supply, but this is another important consideration. Many video cards require a certain wattage output, and many will also specify a minimum output on the 12V rail. The more powerful the video card, the more likely this will be a problem. If you are a gamer, get the best card you can for the price, and make sure to check about power and the PCIE specs for the prospective card. If you are not a gamer, look for a slightly cheaper card, as you really don't need all that power.
As for sound cards, your PC has 2 PCI cards, which you can slot in any PCI sound card. I prefer the soundblaster line of cards or Xfi from creative labs. Depending on your Operating system and how much you want to spend, I can provide a better recommendation. Feel free to post more information on your PC if you want a more specific recommendation.

If you really wanted to disassemble your desktop, first unplug your power cord. Unscrew the cover screw at the back you of computer casing under your power supply. Discharge electro static by holding both hands on the computer casing chassis around 1 minute. After discharging you can now unplug the power supply which to your motherboard, cdrom drive and hard disk drive. Unplug the video card, memory, data cable like ide or sata. Unscrew your motherboard and hard disk drive and cdrom drive. That's all have a good day!

Need help my desk top monitor is showing a sign flashing saying no signal detected need to see how to fix or what might be the issue with desk top

This is the message shown when you power off your computer but you leave the monitor on. If your PC is on but you still see this message then it is a video problem. It could be as simple as a loose connection somewhere in your video cable (either where it plugs into the monitor or where it plugs into the PC). It could also be the monitor-many have different input modes and maybe the input mode changed somehow. Then again something could be wrong with the video card-are components loose on it? Check all of these, in that order (easiest to hardest), and I think you will have found the problem.

Hope this helps.

Cost of game hardware in india

2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.
