Most likely un related. Make sure their are not wires coming near the fan to make the noise.

If its a 'grindy' sound it could just be the ball bearings wearing out. But if you just worked in their, maybe something is rubbing near it.

The biggest problem you will face is trying to find one, not choice or manufacturer. The interface is obsolete, so finding one If you have an AGP 8x motherboard then you will have more luck. The motherboard is the most important part of the system. This upgrade will not make a vast difference to the system, by the time you have spent money on a new graphics card and the cost of your new ram you could have spent the same money on a motherboard bundle and ended up with a much better computer for only a few more dollars.

Hi, Is Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 Silence 1GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI Low Profile PCI-Express Video Card capable for my Compaq HP Presario SR2020NX? -thanks a lot.

You mean will the Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 with 1GB of graphics memory, work in a Compaq Presario SR2020NX Desktop PC?


The Compaq Presario SR2020NX Desktop PC has a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.

{Motherboard illustration and photo are towards the bottom of the page}

Look at the specifications.
Scroll down to the heading - Expansion slots.

Three PCI. (PCI expansion slots)

One PCI Express x16 graphics.

Looking at the motherboard illustration, it is Wrong.
Shows - PCIEX1 (PCI E X1)
According to the specifications it is a PCIEX16 expansion slot. (PCI-E x16)

A PCI-Express x1 slot has 36 contact pins. 18 on each side.

In comparison a PCI slot {White} has 124 contact pins. 62 on each side.

Looking at the photo of the supposed PCI-E x1 slot they show, the black PCI-Ex1 slot is longer than the white PCI slots.

It is a PCI-Express x16 slot with 164 pins. 82 on each side.

The Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 uses a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.

So you know the graphics card will fit. Low-profile to boot.

Power requirement:
The Compaq Presario SR2020NX desktop computer comes with a 300 Watt power supply.
(Although in actuality it's more like 70 percent of the maximum rated wattage. 210 Watts)

Enough power for the computer, and the graphics card.
ATI graphics cards do not use as much power as a comparable Nvidia graphics card.

Concerned that the Asus graphics card uses DDR3 graphics ram memory, and the Presario SR2020NX uses DDR2 Sdram ram memory?

Don't be. The graphics cards graphics memory runs independent of the computer's ram memory.

Information on PCI-Express,

Is appears your Compaq desktop will be able to upgrade to a PCI Express graphics card.

I have provided a link to the EVGA site for you to copy and paste into your web browser to review the board specifications for compatibility with your computer as well as what operating system you have. They will work with XP, Vista or Windows 7. Also have 1GB video memory.

Good Luck 9 Series Family&sw=

You should try taking the side of the case off and run your blu-ray and see if its the fan if so I would get in touch with pny it maybe a bad fan if you have the sava you can upgrade the fan to a non noisey one.

Loud noises

it is very possible that that fan is mulfunctionning overheating the videocard. replace the fan. (you can by the fan seperate from radioshack or some local computer store. (sometimes it is cheaper to replace the video card since it comes with it's own fan.) but of course it depends on what card you have.

I need a list of compatible video cards that can be installed to upgrade the computer to make it run smoother and assist with games, I also need to know what processors can be installed in it ato upgr

I hope you realize the manufacturer recommends a maximum of 1GB of RAM in this system.

Since the system only has PCI slots, any kind of PCI video card should work without a problem.
