Compaq 510s sff. Graphics Card

Just bought a sff compaq and its got no graphics card installed. i tried an AGP (geforce FX 5200 128mb). That didn't work at all. nothing happened at start up. do i have to get a PCI graphics card or are there some AGP cards that work? if so do you know which ones? Not much room inside the box so a PCI card may not have room. Thanks in advance Michael

Hi Mikey You need to go to your bios setting and change your graphic adaptor from PCI/.. to AGP 1- turn your computer off (Shut Down) 2- keep press and release "delete" key on your keyboard while turning your computer on untill you go to bios (normally blue screen) 3-find your desplay/graphic or anything that is related to graphic. 4- Change it to AGP Now it should work but if it didn't work: 1- Faulty Display (Monitor) 2- Not compatible graphic card(rearly) 3- loose or damaged cables 4- Damaged Motherboard please let me know of your progress Kind Regards

Desktop Casings are lower enough that can't be closed when inserting Cards like your Graphics card. Change your desktop casing to Tower Casing so you can freely install your Graphics card to the graphics card of your motherboard.

Fx 5200 geforce graphic card


You did not mention if the board your running has an integrated video card on it. If it does & you have added the FX 5200 AGP you need to make a change in your bios. Set the bios to see AGP. Re-check the insertion of the AGP card. Remove the video card. Use a strong flash light & look into the AGP slot. Use canned air & blow out the AGP slot. Re-seat the video card evenly into the AGP slot. Try again.

GeForce FX 5500-picture flickers


assuming you have set your agp slot in the cmos settings to the primary graphics controller and already had the agp graphics slot driver installed for the motherboard, try using a driver from the nvidia web site if you are having trouble with the driver that came on the cd. Use the VGA onboard graphics if you have any or fit your old card and click on the link below for XP Drivers http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71.html If you still have problems then you will have to try an ATI graphics card as it just may not be compatable with your make of motherboard
