Go to control pannel then device manager and when the list generates click on display adapters you should see your current graphics card listed if so right click on it and click properties once in the properties menu look under the general tab and you should see something that says Location: PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0 or something different for the location but since mine is a PCI card it says PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0 if yours is not PCI it will have something other than PCI...

Graphics card installation problem into pci slot in compaq d500


What's the problem? If it does not go into the slot, you bought the wrong kind of graphics card.

Maybe you need a AGP type graphics card instead of a PCI type.

So which video card do i need? i have 845gl motherboard . before installing this video card (rage XL 8mb pci) my pc plays videos and most 3d game very (even gta sanandreas) efficiently but now it is not...


Hi,

The ATI Rage XL 8MB PCI video card is a very old and low power video card.

PCI graphics cards are not as fast as AGP graphics cards so if your motherboard has an AGP slot (it's the slot closest to the CPU and is usually coloured brown) then that would give you better performance.

These days AGP has been superceded by PCI-Express but since your motherboard does not have a PCI-Express slot then the best graphics card for it would be something like this one:

Hope this helps, please rate my answer :)

I have a hp presario SR5440AN and am trying to find out if i can use a pci express graphic card in it


Yes you can, if your computer has an AGP slot (advance graphic port) then it would be better to use a AGP graphics card instead on a PCI graphics card.
I can't remember if the Presario has an onboard graphics controller on the motherboard, if it has and you install a AGP or PCI graphics card, you may need to disable the onboard graphics controller in the BIOS.

Motherboard installation


Hello mecompe,

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card.

There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card.
First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to
section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to
[AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card.
Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software.
If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.

Need the Asus manual? Click this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4SGX-MX&SLanguage=en-us

To view the manual you'll also need Adobe PDF reader, click this next link for Adobe.
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

(The green led (light), means standby. The board is receiving 5volts DC.

If you still do not have display just let me know.
Good luck mecompe!

Graphic Cardur


Cards range from $50-$500 It all depends on how High-end of a Card you need, There are a Few Things you need to know before buying a Card though
1) Is this a Laptop or desktop, Sounds easy enough but Laptops usually have no slots to install an additional card
2) What type of slot (If Applicable) you have. Options are usually AGP, PCI, PCI-e (PCI Express Which ranges from x1 to x16, for graphics this is usually x16) and PCI-e 2.0 (Newer model of computers and New model of cards)
3) If your Power supply can handle an addtional card. Some cards draw alot of power and require their on power connection.
4). Space inside the computer, Graphics card come in low profile for small spaces, Knowing the appropriate size of the Card is very important.

All of this can be researched and Installed by yourself, and the card is easy to install, Just slide it in the correct port, or you can bring this into Best Buy and We can install this for $49.99 + additional taxes, Its upto you to decide it the work warrants saving the money

Graphics card for my computer


Hi

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 here for guide to install the hardware.

AGP card support


Hi, Unfortunately no AGP slot nor PCI-E. The Gigabyte GA-8I845GV motherboard has only 3 Expansion Slots and all of the are PCI (33MHz & PCI 2.2 compliantt). From their website, here's an image of the motherboard http://www.giga-byte.com.tw/FileList/Image/motherboard_productimage_ga-8i845gv_big.jpg It has a built-in Intel® Extreme Graphics Engine (845GV chipset) for video with max of 128 mb shared memory. Should you wish to install an add-on 3rd party PCI video card, Inno3D FX5500 256ddr PCI slot tv-dvi are still available (at least in my location) for an equivalent of about 3.5K INR (80USD+). Hope this gives you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.
