I want to buy a graphic card, but i dont know if it will fit my graphic card, there is suppose to be a bump where i can slide in and screw on the bump, but my computer's slot is flat, so there is no place to screw on, does that mean i cant install a graphic card?

Re: can i install this graphic card?
Most cases now a days are using clips or clamps in place of Screws, the other peripheral cards should show this when looking at the case. Providing that this is the case with your system case, and your system supports PCIx, then you should be able to use this card.

It should be printet in on the mainboard what socket it is. There is 2 different ones: AGP and PCI-E slot I think you have an PCI-E slot. All newer mainboard have pci-e slot. An AGP socket card does not fit:
If you are unfamiliar with mounting a graphic card Let a expert do the job. It does not cost much. Make also sure you have the driver for it.
It is possible you can etheir find an agp of the appropriate generation for your video card and attempt to solder it into the board. Even then you will need to re-program the bios to recognize it. Would be very difficult to do though as you would need to know how to code the eprom in machine language.
you probably have a video card already in computer either on the M/board or i a slot check device drivers any with a yellow mark do not have drivers installed right click and go to properties new popup go to driver update it should go on the net to find them
I am afraid Dimension 3000 has no support for PCI-e or AGP Video cards. You can however install a PCI Video card in one of the three PCI slots. Just ensure that the PCI Video Card you get is universal (i.e. supports both 3.3 and 5 volts).
When you have your new PCI Video card, check herefor guide to install the hardware.
do one thing.just call up your hp customer care ask the exact website for updating your bios.also update the drivers of ur intel graphics card. most high end online games need latest nvidia graphics card.You made a mistake by purchasing intel graphics card.
well, alot of factors come into play. First get an ATI 9700, ther less than hundred now, get it from a Computer store that actually has staff that know about computers, dont go to best buy or someplace like that, they only stock the better more expensive ones.
Make sure you get the right one, I.E. AGP or PCI, whichever one your PC is. The graphics card will make your P.C. run better when it comes to rendering graphics so you will see improvement on Games in the way of smoothness and detail. Picture viewing and editing will improve.
If you dont know anything about computers, or enough to get the right hardware, then find an Altek computer store or a comp USA or some kind of store that deals mostly with computers. take your whole unit and go in with it and ask a rep, say, " I need a Video card that fits this machine that meets or exceeds the minimum requirements of this program. Take the program box with you also.
Be prepared for them trying to sell you more than you need, get something thats better than the minimum requirements for the program so that way your sure to not have performanc issues.
