Your power supply prolly isnt powerful enuf for the new video card.

if you remove the new card, the pc should automatically go back to integrated graphix, assuming it turned integrated gfx off automatically when the new video card was first put in...

In the BIOS, it would be under on board peripherals/devices if it's there at all. On board AGP or something...
If there's no BIOS setting to disable on board video, it should recognize the new card.
This may sound silly but is the card completely seated in the slot? Sometimes it may seem like it is. Something to check anyway...?

Wanted to know what year it wasand if anygood?


Made in mid-year of 2005.

Any good?

Depends on what you wish a computer to do.

ONE:
The AMD Sempron line of Processors, are a Budget line of Processors.
Equate to comparing an Intel Celeron to an Intel Pentium.
(Celeron's are Budget/Starter processors)

[ The 'Sempy', and the 'Celey' have half of the Cache, that a comparable Athlon, or Pentium has.

(Cache for a Processor, is the first memory area that the Processor accesses.
The Cache operates at the same frequency rate as the Processor.

Cache for a Processor is a small memory area for the Processor)

Crude explanation of a Processor's cache;

You are writing a paper for college. You need more information for it.
Where is the information?

In a book, down in the basement, under the stairs, last book on the bottom in a box, and there is no basement light.

Down the stairs you go, flashlight in hand. Dig the book out, back up the stairs, open the book to the page you need.

You find you need more information, but it isn't in that book.
Yep, back down the stairs you go, flashlight in hand.

OR,
You could click a couple of keys on the keyboard in front of you, and have the information in seconds on your computer.

Basement scenario = Small processor cache
Computer scenario = Large processor cache ]

AMD Sempron:

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

List of AMD Sempron microprocessors,

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

2) HP Support > Compaq Presario SR1403WM desktop computer > Main Menu,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00257657&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=501310&lang=en

Note the supported Processors.
Note the processor socket type used; Socket 754.

Note the maximum Total amount of ram memory.

(2GB's of PC3200 ram memory will get you by just fine.
PC3200 is DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz.
{400MHz)

Me?
Again, depends on what you wish to do with the computer.

The AMD Sempron 3000+ processor, (That uses a Socket 754 processor socket), can operate at a maximum frequency rate, ('Speed') of 1.8GigaHertz.
(1800MegaHertz)

I would try to find an Athlon 64 that uses a Socket 754 processor socket.
Here is one example I just found from searching, (Not advertising for this person, or website. Just an example of what to look for)

http://cgi.ebay.com/AMD-Athlon-64-3200-Socket-754-CPU-BRAND-NEW-/320559466147?pt=CPUs

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (Socket 754)
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 2.2GHz
Has an L1 cache of 64KB, and an L2 cache of 512KiloByte's.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon%2064%203200+%20-%20ADA3200AIO4BX%20%28ADA3200BXBOX%29.html

(In comparison, the AMD Sempron 3000+ can operate up to a frequency rate of 1.8GHz.
Has an L1 cache of 64KB, and an L2 cache of 128KB.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Sempron%203000%2B%20-%20SDA3000AIP2AX.html

Bump the Processor up, max out the Ram Memory, (2GB), install a decent PCI graphics card, and you'll be okay for basic internet, and watching a few movies. Even game playing if the game isn't too intense.
(War of Worlds at low settings, mmm okay
CS:S? Mmmmm, no)

Around my area, the computer tower by itself would sell for around $100 USD. With monitor, (Depending on type), keyboard, and optical mouse, (Throw the roller mouse in the trash), the price goes up.

Refurbished?

1) Generally means the inside of the computer, and the inside of the Power Supply, has been cleaned out. (May be a new cheap quality generic Power Supply installed instead)

2) Thermal paste in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, has been replaced. (Better be)

3) New Harddrive, with a fresh GENUINE copy of Windows installed.
This bumps the price up. Especially if Windows 7 has now been installed.

[Microsoft makes one master disk of an Operating System. Then GENUINE copies are made from it, and sold]

Look up the price of an IDE (PATA) harddrive, with the appropriate size. (150GB, 250GB, and so on)

Then find out which version of Windows 7 has been installed, and look up that price. Or whatever Windows operating system has been installed.

Add these two prices to a base price of $100 to $150, and see how the price compares to what is being offered to you.

K8s mx unknown processor


The Asus K8S-MX mobo?

http://www.asus.com/999/html/events/mb/socket754/k8s-mx/overview.htm

CPU (Processor) Support:

http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASUS/K8S-MX.html

IF, the mobo (MOtherBOard) is in a computer that is working, and internet capable, I suggest you use CPU-Z from CPUID.com

It's a free, tiny, tiny, program.
Information on CPU-Z on Wikipedia,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z

(Home page URL of CPU-Z is listed to the right)

Should you need help in downloading, installing, or using CPU-Z, simply state so in a Comment.

IF, the motherboard is Not in a working computer, then you need to Physically look at the top of the Processor's case.

You are looking for the Part Number.

Examples using the AMD Athlon 64 processors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_amd_athlon_64_processors

(For the AMD Sempron processors, just type -
List of AMD Sempron processors, in the Wikipedia search box, and left-click on the magnifying glass icon.
Same thing with AMD Sempron 64)

Some basic photo examples of what the part number will look like, on the top of the Processor's case,
(Scroll the page down),

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/TYPE-Athlon%2064.html

NOTE*

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You probably won't see it, Or feel it.
The Processor is the MOST susceptible hardware component to static shock.

Handle it by the sides of the case, refrain from touching the pins on the bottom.

Work on a table. Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

If the motherboard is already out of the computer case, TOUCH the metal frame of an empty computer case, BEFORE you touch the motherboard.

On top of the Processor is a Heatsink.
This has to be removed.
There will then be Thermal Paste.

I use an old plastic credit card, (Non-static item) to scrape as much of the old thermal paste off, as I can.
Do Not bear down too hard, as you may make the Part Number unreadable.

I then follow with Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol.
(Rubbing alcohol)
91 percent alcohol is best, but 70 percent will do in a pinch.
I would not recommend 50 percent.
(It's 50 percent Alcohol, and 50 percent Water. 91 percent Alcohol, and 9 percent Water is best)

It will take a lot of Q-tips dipped in alcohol, as old thermal paste is usually a gooey mess. (Unless it is dried up. Then it's worse)

CAUTION!
Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!!

Use in a WELL ventilated space with no flames, or sparks present.

Have any further questions simply state so in a Comment.
