Question about E-Machines T4852 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have the T4852 w/ Intel Extreme Graphics card. I just bough an LG flat screen monitor(W2361VG), and I was wondering "should I replace the graphics card? Would it make the pixels on the screen much better? Or am I pretty good now? I'm at 1920 x 1080 resolution with the new monitor.

No, your pixels aren't going to improve.  Match the resolution to the native resolution of the display (usually listed right on the settings menu) or the recommended Bayer equivalence.

What a graphics card would improve would be CUDA and videogame performance; that is, photo and video editing (or computation-intensive software programmed to take advantage of nVidia or AMD video processing past the GeForce8800 era cards) would get more responsive and capable with the change in the card, as would Far Cry 2 or a similarly demanding videogame.  Office 2007, OpenOffice (so far,) and Peggle would not improve at all, and your carbon footprint would increase with no benefit other than slicker virtual desktop action.

The fancy videocards draw tens of watts when doing no computation and showing a blank screen (i.e. idling,) so there's no need for them just to show YouTube or fansubs.  Encoding is another story.

How to fix this compaq evo d510 sff

D510 (very old) , looks XP like to me. stuck in VGA.sys, default video mode, lacking the real driver. (xp did that for 17 long years now)

I cant see inside your PC nor scan it with sniffer3. app.
so no answers possible. (just this)
it a desktop and has 2 VGA jacks or 1. (not told)
you never said what's inside.
so no answers but 1.
this pc could have 100s of video cards inside or not. (vast, can list them endlessly)
even 6 by HP sold as options day 1, again i cant see inside.

but XP driver for the onboard chip is at intel
not at HP it's too old now,(no support now)
not at MS, , XP is dead. XP support ended 4 years ago.

so has it for sure for XP, super easy to get at (ask)
but the XP driver does not work on W7 up. (but might if installed (risk)
using the compatible mode, to install the driver.
doing that is tricky want to learn?

here is a wiki page
that shows why XP drivers may not work
on the never windows,(
i call it the XDDM/XPDM snafu.

the steps are convoluted.
run the setup file in XP SP3 compat mode.
extract in and find the Inf file that match your
video GPU chip
then run that INF. (right click it and pick install)
there is no other way to install wrong video driver in W7

ever do this?

If monitor is on it could be (1. the screen cable is faulty .(2 then screen cable is not plugged in, or you have installed a graphics card and connected it to the on board and not the graphics card.If its connected to the motherboard or the graphics card and is not coming on then your graphics card or onboard is shot.If onboard is shot buy a graphics card and install it or replace graphics card.

Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START

According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

First thing is check the monitor by replacing it with any working monitor. If that does not work remove the Graphics card and do the same. The problem will be either in the Graphics card or the monitor....sodeep

Screen has rotated 180 degrees

I have lots of Dell monitors and none of them has the ability to flip the screen orientation built into them. What I suspect has happened is he accidentally hit a keystroke combination that activated a feature in your video card driver. If you have the built-in Intel Extreme Graphics read this link and let us know if it helps.
