Hi, I have a Presario SR1550NX Desktop, with 512mb, ( I plan to add more memory when I install the new video card, - to 2 G) It has 128 mb integrated video memory, 2.4 G ADM Athlon 64 processor, bus clock: 200 mg, 250 G usable hard drive capacity. I would like to install a video card that is a little better than the one I have. What do I need to know to get the right one?

First your budget

second the interface (PCIe, AGP)

if you are planning to install SLI video cards...make sure you have enough expansion slot for your card..
check your computer Specification in HP website

Since you are Using AMD CPU, its better to get ATI chipset Video Card

How can i add video card from my dell optiplex 160l motherboard?


It's a matter of finding a compatible video card for your machine. In all likelihood, your machine will accept a PCI Express video card. Choose what size you'd like, (unless you're a serious gamer who requires a lot of vid memory, a 256MB or 512MB card will do). Then remove and unplug cables from your Desktop and pull out the tower. Remove the cowl and blank so you can add your card to the appropriate slot. Once the card is installed, plug everything back in and turn the machine on. Since it's Plug n Play, your machine will automatically identify the new hardware. At this point, uninstall your previous video hardware in the Hardware Manager and install the new card either by downloading the driver online of if provided, use the disk that should have come with the new card.

I have intel desktop board D865GBF WITH INTEL PENTIUM 4 PROCESSOR PLEASE SUGGEST ME SOME ACCESSORY FOR UPGRADING MY PC PERFORMANCE AND QUALITY


You can start with the CPU. Here is a list of supported processors for your motherboard.

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D865GBF/sb/CS-026966.htm

Then your RAM can be increased. See this page for approved/tested RAM modules:

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D865GBF/sb/CS-027111.htm

If you should install 4 1GB modules, you will only show 3.5 if you use a 32-bit operating system.

The third thing you can do is to add or upgrade a video card. This board has an 8X AGP slot. It is compatible with 0.8V or 1.5V cards only. Install one with the greatest amount of memory you can afford. Suggest 512MB or 1GB.

Those are the main improvements you can make to this, or any board for that matter.

Good luck. Thanks for using Fixya.

Added a memory stick to my Dell 2400 Desktop computer and the monitor, mouse, & keyboard won't work


Hi

The supported Memory types for Dimension 2400 Series is PC2100 (266-MHz) or PC2700 (333-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC). Supported Memory capacities are 128, 256, or 512MB and a Max if 1GB (1024MB).

The first obvious question is does the new 512MB Memory module meet the above specification? Some Memory modules are able to steep down speed.

If it does, then first ensure the new memory module is properly installed. Take ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) precautions or you may damage the new memory module and/or the system board.

To proceed compare the system beeps and diagnostics lights color and sequence to the Advanced Troubleshooting guide.

It is possible that the new memory is DOA (Dead On Arrival). Or there is a new fault on the system. If you have access to another compatible system, you may test the new and old memory modules. You may also swap the new and old memory modules to determine if the memory slot is at fault.

Lastly, if you remove the new memory module, does the system complete POST (Power On Self Test)?. If it does you may indeed have a DOA or incompatible part.
