Albatron GeForce FX5200LP dead

Albatron GeForce FX5200LP has died. Dispays yellow screen divided into many vertical slices. Temporary insertion of another card showed a valid screen (but not a very good one as drivers probably weren't installed), so I'm fairly certain it's the card. These cards seem to be museum pieces, at least in UKland. Can I substitute any other card? Can I upgrade? Would a Fx5500 256MB card of the same form work? Thank you. Rev. John.

    way cool. I will try another AGP 8x card tomorrow. I'm quite confident doing hardware, and installs, but I've never had a graphics card die before.
    I thought those things were immortal.
    I'll keep you in the loop.
    Thank you,

    Thank you.
    Sorry for the delay in reporting back, life intervened.
    You were right. Another AGP card worked fine.
    She is up and running.
    Thank you,

Yes, you can upgrade it yourself, if you know how to install the hardware itself and to install drivers from its CD. When buying be sure that it's "AGP 8X" a type of slot that is the same/compatible with the slot of GeForce FX5200LP... Have a nice day!!!

Hp 6530b laptop screen split

It means the screen is dying. Sooner or later the screen will develop more lines. It is possible to fix it (temporary) by pressing both of the ends, but sooner or later it will show up again.

Just installed a new geforce gt 640 video card and drivers and now i have a red tinted screen with vertical lines

The card may not be set into the slot properly. Make certain the computer is OFF when you check the interior of the computer case. Crossing the tangs (small flat pins on the board) can damage the controller, so be careful when inserting or pulling it out. Press down firmly on the top of the card and seat the card so it won't move side to side. Reattach your Computer Monitor cable in the correct position and screw down the attachments to make a positive connection. Check the Monitor and see if the Cable is well attached also. Start up and see if that fixted the problem. If not the Controller is defective.
