Re: video Card

There is no such thing as a PCI-E to AGP converter, they are 2 completely different technology. Anyways a motherboard with a PCI-E port is really not that expensive, you can find one for about $100.00, just make sure you choose the right socket for your processor.

I need a recommendation for a video card that will work in a Gateway Performance 733 that originally came with integrated graphics.

That is a pretty old PC to be upgrading, but a new video card might help a bit for video viewing.
Im assuming that it has either only PCI or maybe a 1st gen AGP slot. You would need to open it and find out. Iff all the slots look exactly the same its PCI if the top one is different or even darker brown in color its AGP. now dont get the regualr PCI mixed up with PCI-E (pci-express16x) those will not fix and they are what is mainstream right now in the video card market.

I'd suggest looking on eBay or other online retailers to find a PCI oe AGP card.

256 MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for Inspiron 9400/E1705 Card Failu

Both solutions are wrong. The Dell Inspiron 9400/1705 is a laptop. If you buy a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for this laptop, you need to buy a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 motherboard for a discrete video card. The integrated video is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The integrated video has the video chipset on the motherboard and the discrete video (GeForce Go 7800) has the video chipset on the video card.

Problem installation video card

Hello Virna, i have that exact graphics card and dell GX270 desktop here at home, tho it has been awhile since i removed the Nvidia PCI card for a more favorable AGP card. From what i remember, first check your BIOS (hit F2 on startup) and select integrated devices, scroll down and make sure your default video output is either PCI (if available) or AUTO) exit saving changes. If that yields no result. Plug in a second monitor to your old integrated video output, if you can view windows after bootup from there, then you can install the proper Nvidia display driver for windows Xp (available here: ). After installing, right click on the desktop, select properties, display settings tab, and make sure the Geforce card is the main monitor and the desktop monitor. Click apply, unplug the integrated VGA output, and restart. Hope this helps.

Adjusting video card ram

You cannot add more ram to your graphic card, If you want more ram for optimum system performance I recommend buying a new ATI, or NVIDIA graphic card to replace the old one. they both have the best cards on the market and visit their site at NVIDIA or for more cards information and where to buy them.
I recommend 256MB RAM for PCI systems, 512MB RAM for AGP systems and 1GB RAM for PCI-EXPRESS systems.
