Your PC has a PCI-e x16 slot available for upgrading graphics cacapabilities. Any PCI-e x16 that is not double-slot wide or that requires a pcie power plug should work. If you take a look at the images at NewEgg.com you can see which NVIDIA (Geforce) and Radeon based cards are double wide. Your PC just doesn't have the physical space for a fit. For Radeon cards 3000 series and below with the exception of not higher that an HD 3650 in the 3000 series. For NVIDIA based cards in the 7000 series and lower with a couple of exceptions. 8000 series: nothing higher than an 8600 model. 9000 series is a no go.
Your PSU is not capable of running the cards I mentioned as exceptions. Your PSU is less than 300W. Powerful video cards require more wattage and extra PCIe specific power connectors. Read the specs to ensure that the video card you are considering does not have any additional power requirements.
You can link to the cards you are considering and we will let you know if the will fit and work and why they will not if they are exceptions.

Hey there, the HP bios is pretty smart - it should automatically detect a new sound card and switch off the internal one when installed - alternatively you can go to the 'system devices' panel and disable it in the software as well.
hope this helps
cheers

SOURCE: I have a HP Compaq

Ron, the HP Compaq DC7600 Convertible Mini-Tower uses DDR2 Sdram ram memory at 533MegaHertz.
This is also referred to as PC2-4200
The above is according to HP.

My sources indicate DDR2 Sdram at 677MHz can be used also.
PC2-5300
However the Maximum TOTAL Amount will be 2GB if using PC2-5300.

(It isn't the 'speed' to be so concerned about, in regards to ram memory. It is the Amount that should be the concern. More = Better.

'Speed' is a term brought about, so the average Joe will be able to understand the concept of ram, and Processor performance better. It is actually Frequency Rate. Measured in MegaHertz, or Gigahertz amounts

Mega = Approximately 1 Million
Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

Using the above example, PC2-5300, it can operate up to 533 Million Cycles per Second

The Maximum TOTAL Amount is 4GB for the Convertible Mini-Tower. (When using PC2-4200)
The Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.
Use DDR2 Sdram that is 1.8 Volts
Low density
Unbuffered
Non-ECC

Regards,
joecoolvette

(Need help in finding ram memory, or need examples, just post in a Comment)

No videos playing on my HP dc7600 convertible minitower PC


Have you installed Abode Flash Player? If not, get it here. If you did install it and the issue still exists, it might be the Windows Media Player plugin. You can go to Microsoft's website to get the plugin.

When I installed new Os Win 7 on my PC some I am not getting sound on my system


There is no Windows 7 driver for this model, howver there is a Vista driver. Its worth downloading it and installing it. it just may work. If it does not then suggest you buy a pci audio card and fit that after disabling the on board sound in the bios.

Good luck

why not post in English , you can see this forum is in English.
Santa said, you stated: (commented)
One question, my computer has 4 slots(mem) and I put 1 GB in each slot is this model DDR2-800MHZ-CL8 PC6400U. the question, if? the computer presented a problem with time?
(memory speed wrong?)
to do this and the last I would like to know what video card? I can put it and how much mega(bytes) can the computer scare? me.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
dc7600 (12 years old)
NO OS stated. (XP,VISTA, W7/8/10) 1st came with w2000

you posted to
dc7600 Convertible Minitower PC Desktop , Pentium 4 at best.
800 MHz front side bus.
Dual-channel DDR2 667 memory. 4GB max !

if this is correct, (most are not, due to lack of fixya variants)
then.
PCI Express™ x16 , slot.
the spec page says it has this slot. so most new video cards
will run in this slot but not over 75watts unless the PSU is upgraded for powerful fast GPU cards with its own power cable.

when new this card was an option over a decade ago
ATI RADEON X300 SE PCI Express 128-MB DDR single head DVI with TV out

they offered 4 vidoe card choices then.
the PSU is 364watts. (marginal for any fast new Video cards)


simple answers:
  1. only you memory seller can match up correct memory types DDR-667 or faster. like Kingston, as them !!!
  2. 4GB max mem.
  3. lacking correct PSU only 75watt Video cards work or less.
  4. with correct PSU the sky's the limit,!!! on power.
why upgrade such and old 12 year old system.
are you dreaming of running fast $60 games? it wont work.
it's too old.
tell why you need the video card first?. usage matters first.

No signal to monitor


Have you checked the drivers? If the drivers are installed then a good possibility is that the onboard video is no longer working. One way to check it is to try another monitor. Otherwise, try installing a video card to see if that doesn't solve the problem.
