Hi David,

Try removing and resetting the CMOS battery on your motherboard. Also, make sure that all connectors from power supply are plugged into the motherboard. There should be power for sys fan, CPU fan, etc.

Thanks,

Try opening the case and removing any installed PCI cards one by one and testing whether the problem is still present after each card is removed.
If you have a built-in VGA adapter on the motherboard and a separate graphics card, then connect your monitor to the built-in adapter when removing the graphics card.
If the problem remains after all expansion cards are removed, then the fault most likely lays with the motherboard and you may need to buy and install a new one.
Depending on the age of the current motherboard, you may be able to re-use the existing processor and memory if you can get a replacement which takes the same types (processor socket type and memory standard (DDR, DDR2, DDR3 etc)).
If you go for an upgrade motherboard and processor, then you may also need to upgrade the power supply - check the minimum power requirements of the new motherboard against the power outlet capacity of your existing supply.

What is the best video card that is compatible with my Dell Inspiron 530s?


You can use any PCIe X16 card you want, the only restriction being the power supply. Most of the high end gaming cards require minimum 400w supply with 600w for crossfire. The 530 comes with a 300w supply so, if you were looking for a card with out upgrading power supply you would have to stay within the 300w supply. I personally like the ATI/AMD Radeon HD cards because you gain sound and video through card but thats just me. If you are a light to moderate gamer and want HD video for tv monitor, etc. a midrange card, probably in the price range of $80.00 would ne good for you and could be done without upgrading power supply.

Need apower supply and hard drive for my compaq presario 1103WM. how old is this unit


It must be up to 8 years old ish as it has XP installed.

17-inch flat screen CRT monitor NEW* Intel Celeron D Processor 3252.53 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 256 KB L2 cache 256 MB DDR SDRAM CD-RW (48x32x48) 40 GB hard drive 9-in-1 memory card reader 10/100Base-T networking interfaceIntegrated graphics with 64 MB shared video memory *The new Celeron D processors are more efficient than the old Celeron processors. The New 325 D benchmarks faster than the old Celeron 2.7 GHz processor.

Almost any IDE hard drive will work, up to 540Gb and any reasonable power supply should be OK. Check ebay and also google for a power supply.
Hope that helps.

Power light not turning green just amber.not a power flactuation problem


There are a few things you will have to do. First, remove any newly installed card in the PCI socket if any. Try to re-sit the memory chip modules, that's removing and re-installing them. If they are two, try replacing one after another. Thirdly, try another VGA card incase you using the onboard one. Finally, swap your monitor. It must work. Good luck

Vidoe Card


Yes. Have you installed the software and driver for the new video card? If you had "onboard" video before you may have to turn it off in the BIOS setup screen.  Additionally if you had a different video card you may have to remove the software for it but not usually. Need more help , just ask.

I want to upgrade Compaq Presario SR5410F with Video card GE FORCE 8600GT, 512 mb. What are the requirements of DDR Memory (Presently 1GIG AND Power Supply 200Watts). Please explain what to add and take...


To install the 8600GT, turn off your computer, unplug the power cable going to your power supply, remove the side panel of your case, remove the current video card and firmly push the 8600GT into your PCI-Express x16 slot. Now plug in your monitor to the video card’s ports, close up your case, plug in your power cable, and turn on your machine. In BIOS turn off the built-in video and enable the PCIe slot for use. Restart. Insert the included installation CD and follow the onscreen instructions. The power supply is small but should work as long as you have not added other items. The memory is adequate and does not matter as far as adding a video card is concerned. Some games may require more memory, however.

Video card upgrade


Can you try your old card? does your card have a 6 pin connector on it for power? Does your power supply have a 6 pin connector for video card power?

Installed new Power supply, Monitor stays in standby...? So I noticed my fan was starting to go out, then it actually went out, my power supply would start to over heat and the cpu would shut itself...


Your problem is either the processor or the motherboard. that is why your monitor is not getting any signal. first try to replace the processor because I suspect that this might be the problem as it has gotten overheated before. if there was a power problem with you power supply you monitor would not power up at all.
