    First of all did you order the right video card and memory? You need to get 400MHz (PC3200) Expandable to 4GB Memory and a PCI Express (PCIe x16) video card.

The installation is usually fairly simple. The hardest part is ensuring you ordered the correct parts for your specific computer/motherboard.

If you did when you open your computer you will see slots for your 1 GB DDR Ram (your existing memory will already be installed) and also some PCI/AGP slots for the ATI video card. These parts can ONLY go in the correct slots so unless your ordered the wrong stuff you should be able to figure it out.

Here is a diagram of a generic motherboard:

For the DDR RAM you will need to remove your current memory in first. The new memory will go in the first slot on the left or top which is usually labeled Slot 0 or Slot 1 with the others being a higher number. You will want the new memory in the first available slot and any left over old memory you can either keep and place in the corresponding slots or just put aside. Most PCs will have anywhere from 2 to 4 slots for memory so feel free to fill them up. One note though: If your old memory is a lot slower than the new memory it may be best to just discard it. i.e. DDR 233 (old) vs DDR 400 (new). If you add those together the new memory will only operate at 233 speed. Usually it's not a huge deal and I almost always go for more memory and don't worry too much about the speed.

For the ATI video card, I will assume its an AGP or PCI-E card. There should be a slot in the card sections for it if you ordered the right one. If there is a card there already just remove it and line up the card and slots on the bottom just like you did the memory. It can ONLY go in one way so you can't really get it wrong w/o breaking it.

    Did a little more research and you should be ok. Below is a link to a standard Motherboard for your Computer. If you look at it you'll notice the card and memory slots I was refering to and they will be similar (if not identical) to yours.

    The top left ones (white) are your PCI and PCI-E slots. The graphics card should go into the PCI-E slot.

    The bottom right (Green/Blue) ones are your Memory slots. You will probably have 512mb already installed. Just move it to the 2nd slot from the top and put your new 1GB stick into the top most slot. That should work fine.

    Once you boot your computer the memory will work automatically but the Video card will need to have drivers installed as well as your monitor cable (in the back of your computer) which is currently going into the onboard video controller moved to the new Video card.

    Inserting the cards should of course be done with the computers power OFF and the computer unplugged.

Open up the side door before you do anything else. Look for a stick or RAM that looks like the one your going to be putting in. When you find the extra slot that the RAM is going in, your going to find two latches one on each side of the RAM slot. The memory itself is slotted meaning it can only go in one way. Put the memory in and line up the slot with the hold on the bottom of the RAM. It should snap into place and the latches will hold the memory into place.

As far as the video card is concerned, its going to go into a long white slot, it also can only go in one way, the metal part of the card will face the outside of the back of the computer and the card will snap into place. After you do this you might need to have to put a screw into the metal slot of the video card to keep it in place.

At this point you can hook up the monitor to the external video card and the thing you might have to do is install the drivers for the video card when you get into windows. It might not detect the video card properly which is why you might have to intstall the software for it.

Also do the memory first to make sure the computer sees it and boots up. If it does then turn the computer off and then do the video card. That way if there is a any problems it will be easy to figure out where the problem is right away.

    I am trying to buy a video card for my D101GGC Motherboard. I know my motherboard has a PCI Express x16 1.0 slot so I will get a PCI Express video card. But can I get a PCI Express x16 2.0 card and will it...


    First, your RAM is already maxxed out and it is only DDR. See:

    Secondly, PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible with 1.0 slots.

    The RAM on the graphics card doesn't matter as long as the card is compatible. As far as how much...if you can afford 1GB, great!

    ATI or nVidia? That's personal preference. I have had both and was happy with both. Other manufacturers use ATI and nVidia chips and market them under their own name. Galaxy, XFX, EVGA, and others. Here are some mid-range boards from Tiger Direct:|c:3669|&Sort=0&Recs=10

    You don't say how fast your processor is. You may be better off going for a new board or computer.

    Hope this helps.

    Will a DDR Ram work with a DDR2 Video card?

    The on board memory on the graphics card being DDR2 will NOT affect the system memory being DDR.

    And the memory you want to add depends on the memory you have allready installed on your machine and what version of windows you are running.

    Please post back with more info on this.
