Re: Compaq Computer

When the pc is powering up, keep pressing F8 to get into safe mode, and when in the menu select last known good configuration and press enter for a reboot. This should get you running, if not restart again pressing F8, but this time select start windows in safe mode and whilst in safe mode select the administrator account and try doing a system restore to a date before you tried loading the programe, and let the pc re boot, and hopefully you are now ok.

My graphics card does not show up on my Device Manager

I had just run into the same problem while installing my new graphics card earlier today. This is what I did to fix it:

1. Uninstall the new driver for the new card, if you can, in control panel if it installed.

2. Reinstall the new driver.

3. Go to Device Manager and UNINSTALL, not disable, UNINSTALL the on-board card. Don't worry this won't kill anything. It will ask you to restart your computer. Click yes.

4. While the computer is restarting and on the shut down screen for windows unplug the monitor cord from the onboard card and plug it into the new card.

5. Wait for windows to boot up and load the new drivers. It should be working with the correct drivers.

If it takes more than 8 minutes for anything to come on the screen(icons, login screen, etc.) reboot your computer again.

I have compaq sg3530il desktop and i want to know which graphic card is compatible with my computer ?

You must contact the manufacturer of the computer (HP) for compatibility and recommendations for a graphic card. Go to the HP website and click support and send them an email. Only the manufacturer can give you a straight answer. HP bought out Compaq several years ago, so I'm sure it would be HP to contact.

Can we have external graphic card for Compaq Pres. c700?

You need to check that with the Compaq itself. Ask them what all brands of graphics cards are compatible with your computer.

thanx :-)

It sounds as if the software is 'dropping frames'

Video consists of 25 frames per second. When capturing video, the computer has to read and compress each frame in real time. If your processor is not fast enough, it cannot keep up and will drop frames.

The problem is it only drops the video frames, not the audio frames, so over time the picture and sound go out of sync.

Make sure your computer meets the minimum specs. for the software. Also close any other programs that are running as this will lighten the load on your processor. If you've got loads of icons in the lower right-hand corner of your screen (these are all progrmas running in the background) close as many of these as possible as well.

Hope this helps,

S video out


To my thinking, your concern would largely be dependent on the Screen Resolution setting of the PC. It may be that the screen resolution be initially lowered down to the lowest possible.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Wont turn on

The computer start up? or does't work?
If the computer doesn't work, check first the power supply.
Second, the memory and the video card.

See first which video card is supported by the motherboard (Agp, 2x, 4x, 8x) or use some PCI video card.
