Question about HP DC663A (64 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Second Life According to second life, my Intel graphic card, which is installed on my HP Pavillion e4900 laptop is not compatible and therefore does not support Second Life. What kind of impact would getting one of the two graphic cards that are compatible (ATI Radeon 8500 or higher, or, nVidia Geforce 2 or higher) have on how my computer operates? And what's the average cost of these cards? Thank tiy

Re: Second Life

Well, alot of factors come into play. First get an ATI 9700, ther less than hundred now, get it from a Computer store that actually has staff that know about computers, dont go to best buy or someplace like that, they only stock the better more expensive ones.

Make sure you get the right one, I.E. AGP or PCI, whichever one your PC is. The graphics card will make your P.C. run better when it comes to rendering graphics so you will see improvement on Games in the way of smoothness and detail. Picture viewing and editing will improve.

If you dont know anything about computers, or enough to get the right hardware, then find an Altek computer store or a comp USA or some kind of store that deals mostly with computers. take your whole unit and go in with it and ask a rep, say, " I need a Video card that fits this machine that meets or exceeds the minimum requirements of this program. Take the program box with you also.

Be prepared for them trying to sell you more than you need, get something thats better than the minimum requirements for the program so that way your sure to not have performanc issues.

Does anyone know how to use proxy servers to get past a parental blocking site for Second life?

Hmm don't you have to be at least 18 to play SecondLife?
You can use a proxy server but I doubt that will bypass the parental block on the SL app.

I have 4870 installed. i want to activate Second

Running two ATI cards is CrossFire not SLI, and no, you cannot run those two cards together. I am assuming you are reffering the the Video game Second life. The 4870 is still a beast of a card, I find it next to impossible it wont run the game. Make sure you have the latest CCC driver from

Hi i hope you gan hellp me. I am trying to paly second life on line and i can not get it on my new labtop its a asus X5DC Series and it has a SIS672 mirage 3+ in it but it is still not working can you...

your video card is not supported for second life. secondlife requires an ATI or Nvidia opengl compatible card. second life does not support most mobile cards and does not have any support for the SIS chipset that i am aware of.

I have a laptop HP pavillion dv6000 with Nvidia 8600 M GS videocard. When I tried to connect it to TV with Svideo cable it is not Identifying the TV as second monitor.


You need to configure the nvidia software for dual monitor mode. And refer the manual of the laptop to find the hotkey to enable external display device. If you provide the exact model number of the laptop I will be able to provide much information to you.

Revert back for clarifications.

I have a Dell Inspiron 531S, AMD Sempron LE-1300, 2.31 GHz, 1.93 GB RAM. My current graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. I play Second Life online and need the best graphics card I can...

NVidia 8400GS PCI card is a pretty good card that isn't oversized, and the best thing is that all computers have a PCI slot so you shouldn't have problems with fitting/compatability. They're in any electronic store like best buy, etc. I had that card and played WoW/warhammer very well on it.

When you install a new video card you must disable the onboard video card by going into the bios setup. Below I have listed the requirements of Second life game. e 531 does come with PCI-E slots so make sure you buy a VIDEO card with PCI-E Walmart sells some pretty decent priced Graphics cards. pretty much any pci-e card you buy new in walmart these days will be fine for this game.

PC Minimum System Recommendations:

* Internet Connection*: Cable or DSL

* Computer Processor: 1.6GHz Pentium 4 or Athlon 2000+ or better

* Computer Memory: 512MB or better

* Video/Graphics Card**:
o nVidia GeForce FX 5600, GeForce 6600, or better
o OR ATI Radeon 9600, X600, or better
