What video adapter card is compatible with Seagate ST3400620AS HDD

There are many things you need to consider before purchasing a new graphics card.
First you need to know what type of graphic card is compatible with your motherboard and how much space you have inside of the PC tower.

Since newer cards use a lot of power, it is also important to check your PCs power supply.
The simplest way to find out what type of graphic card is compatible to your motherboard is by looking at the expansion slot and power specifications in the motherboards manual.

Locate your motherboard's manual.
If you don't have one then open up your web browser and enter your motherboard or PC's manufacturer's website.

Go to the support page on the manufacturer's website and enter your motherboard's model number.

Download the motherboard's manual from the support page.
Look for the "expansion slot" section in the manual to check the motherboards expansion slot specifications.

If your motherboard uses a AGP expansion slot then write down the version (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), and the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x).

If your motherboard uses a PCI Express expansion slot then write down the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16).

Look for the "Power Supply" specifications in the manual and write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V,5V or 12V).

Determining a compatible graphics card

Download, install and run SiSoftware's Sandra (see link Below)
Free to try $49.99 to buy

to find out information on your motherboard. Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model."

Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website.
If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website.

Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model.
Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications.

Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express."
If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x).

If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16).
Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply."

Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A").
Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance.

Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot.
AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa.

Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot.

Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard.

A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU.

Amd 64 bit processor the computer powers up or at least turns on and there is a consitant beeping but the monitor is not getting a signal. Could this be as simple as a video card? I received this comp from...

The beeping is a trouble code. The beeps will be different based on the reason for it not working correctly. Generally when a PC beeps as such, it is caused by a hardware issue, most likely a removable device such as memory or a video card or other addin card. If the computer has an addin video card, but also has onboard video, I would pull the card out and plug the monitor into the onboard video. if that does not change anything, replace the card and begin looking elsewhere. I would start by removing the memory (RAM sticks) from the computer and see if the you get a picture after that. If so I would check to see which memory stick is bad by trying them in there first with 1 stick and as it continues to function adding another. Remember to only install and remove components with the computer powered off and preferably unplugged.

I have just Installed CSI Deadly Intent on my PC but when I go to play it All I get is a blank screen?

Dependent on the age of your PC the video card that drives the graphics may not be capable of supporting or rendering the graphics in the CSI game. Like computer video cards come with memory on them that enables them to run calculations and render objects (all graphics are based on polygonal figures and are thus mathematical) CSI has multiple characters and background imagery that must be rendered and then HELD in place on video card for game to progress. Like this the background has to be stored while the video card redraws the characters as they move, talk, etc. Since you didnt list the type of PC you have, I dont know if its old or new. The first thing you can do is go to your manufacturers website and see if a new video driver is available for your system. This might possibly solve the issue.. However if you have an older machine more than likely the video card is not capable of supporting.

Fitted new graphics card now i have to press F1 key to reboot

hi david_culley,

looks like the installation did not work out properly
you may be caught in a routine that the machine boots up continously,
If you have an onboard graphics card, please disable it in the BIOS before your computer can find the newly installed device.

try this and if you still face the prob please come back to fixya.

Good luck

Sound Device

Hi Jeenny, open the PC case, look for a white slot on the motherboard. You can add a PCI sound card to the PC. If you look on the case (Unless it's a case you bought), there should be a sticker with the make & model number printed on it. Post that information here & I should be able to help you more.
Click on the link below, these are PCI sound cards for desktop cases.

Apple Mac 9600/350 problems

Try moving the PCI sound card to another PCI slot. On standard PC machines the IRQs are limited to 15 and many cards require their own, not a shared one. (start from the lowest going up... Leave the graphics card in the top slot (if PCI as well)
