Re: Graphic card problem

It looks like you can only use a PCI graphics card. The basic graphics card is built-in..
You can use any card that is PCI. I like nvidia boards

Got a geforce 8400 gs pci express graphics card and it does not fit in my olc pc. is there an adaptor i could get that would solve the problem as i cant take it back as its been opened?

Hi there,

1. You need to know what type of bus your mobo has. e.g. PCI, AGP

2. The adapter you are looking for is not available, there is something called RISER card. it is only for pcie to pcie used as a replacement for low profile graphics card. if there are such adapter it would be expensive.

3. You have to upgrade or swap it to some one who likes your card for an additional amount of money. it depdends on the market value of the card to be swapped.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I got the this pny geforce 8400 gs pci card but it sends nosignal

You need to install the driver that came with the card. If you don't have it you can download it from the site. Also (for experienced users), check your BIOS setting to see if it has an option to select between the integrated graphics card your other one.

Just received a Palit GeForce 8400 GS Video Card. It will not fit my mother board. Is my pc to old?

This is a PCI-E (PCI-Express) type video card. Older systems have an AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) slot. You can verify this by looking up your system online and look at the specs to see which type of video slot it has.

Hope this helps,

GeForce, monitor displays incorrectly

Make sure you uninstalled all previous drivers first. Just to let you know the 8400 gs isnt a gaming graphics card but it is a step up from the absolutely terrible 7200 gs
