Graphics card upgrade for Compaq Evo D500

Hi! Got a Compaq Evo D500 computer from my moms work. They were going to through it away so I thought I´d use it as a surf-computer on the plasma TV. The graphics card is a Nvidia Vanta 16MB. I would like to upgrade it to a card that has some more memory, and preferably a DVI-output. What cards fit my slim computerbox? Thanks in advance!

A NVIDIA GeForce 6200 or similar will fit into the compaq slimline case. You need to get the slimline model, then modify the steel bracket to get it to fit. This is what iv'e done to a EVO (P4 1.8 GHZ)and

Here's the specs on your system, specifically the video specs: http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/10946_div/10946_div.HTML#Graphics Looks like you can get an AGP 4X card. This doesn't give you any suggestions, but it does let you know your limitations.

Hi, What do I need to connect an extra monitor to my Compaq Evo D500 PC. eg:- what graphic card do I need and connections.


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814134076This links to a low profile AGP video card with the appropriate brackets. This would allow you to connect two monitors to your system. I linked this card because I do not know if you have the D500MT or the D500SFF. I would suggest purchasing a DVI to VGA adapter as well so that the card will operate as a Dual VGA (D-SUB) setup.
I would not suggest spending much more than this on upgrades for this system as it is an older system and you could get a current technology system, possibly with a dual head video card, for between $300-$600.

How do I install an operating system on my Compaq EVO D500? The hard drive has been wiped clean and there is no operating system on it. I have a windows 98 SE uprade disk.


Hi, you can only use an upgrade disk for win98 if you have win95. If you do not want to purchase an OS, look into linux. I've been very happy with openSUSE and Ubuntu.

Try to start your EVO desktop in safe mode (press F8) before Windows loads.

Other things to try are a different graphics card or monitor.
