If you have not added one, That should be built in on your motherboard. You can not remove or repair that. but you may buy new one and add it onto your PCI or PCI-E according to *********** board slot.

Any more help?

Hello,i have 601-686A motherboard(yes it's old) at country side and pretty sure that i'm using on board video card now(8 mb),anyways was wondering if it supports a radeon 9250?On System specs it...

Does your old AGP card got three "cuts" in her fitting board ? If yes your Radeon 9250 must have same fitting shape too. Otherwise voltage is different and cannot be installed. (Dont try again cause you may damage both card and motherboard).
If the fitting on both cards is the same then your new card maybe damaged or incompatible.

Hello, my Video card ATI RADEON 9250 is flickering and when I play a game like warcraft it get hung or restarted, I have already installed the newest driver but it does not help either, What should I do?...

your video card may have suffered from over heating, check to be sure the fan (if it has one) is running, also make sure there is space around the video card, if you can leave an empty space above the processor and chips (if the card has been damaged from overheating, your only option is to replace the card.

Is there a replacement video card for the NVidia 8600 on HPDV9700

When you look at the specifications for your system and you see an "M" after the video card number, RE: Nvidia 8600M .... The "M" means that the video is a chip and is soldered onto the motherboard and cannot therefore be changed without serious knowledge of micro soldering these connections. It takes specialized equipment. In most cases you are stuck with that chip on that particular motherboard.

More information about submitted problem.

You have a failing video card or chip, you will have to determine whether you have a video card or a video onboard chip... if it is a card, you can replace the card.. if it is a chip, you need to replace the motherboard, or attempt a "rebake" of the video chip to the motherboard.

Try disconnecting power to all your drives. It's possible one of the drives has a short that is bringing down the power supply (most power supplies will shut down if they sense a short, to avoid damaging your computer). If it's not that, it's either a bad video card (reseating obviously won't help if the card's damaged) or a bad motherboard or processor. If you have another machine you can borrow a video card out of, you can test that. Otherwise, you'll have to replace the motherboard and processor. Never replace just one of the two, as one can damage the other and it's not worth frying your new equipment by putting damaged hardware in.

Hi Naida, A while back I had a computer that was having all kinds of video issues after it had been on for a little bit. I pulled the video card out and like you was able to free spin the fan and didn?t see any dust worth mentioning. Also like you I ran the computer with the case open to verify the fan was actually spinning but noticed there really wasn?t much air being moved. I removed the fan from the card and to my surprise found that the cards heatsink directly underneath the center of the fan was blocked with a solid ball of dust I couldn't see before. Cleaned that out, reassembled and I was good to go. If that doesn?t do it you might consider replacing the card fan. They?re small, cheap and run full board on gaming machines. Since you?ve gotten some messages indicting your software detects 0 rpm it would be a logical and cheap thing to try. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this post.
