HELP FINDING A CARD TO FIT MY PCI SLOT

I have a dell pentium 4 computer with one open PCI slot but I am having trouble finding a graphics card that will fit in the slot. looking at the slot from the back of the comp to the front it has a long socket next to a short one. I bought a GFORCE 5200 but on the card the short male side was backwards from the pci slot in my computer

    I have a dell demision 3000 the top slot on my computer has an EMU 0404 sound card in it. and it is the only slot that has 3 spaces the other two slots just have two spaces. I have my Modem in one of the other two slots. So are you saying I will have to get rid of the 0404 sound card and go back to using the oem sound card built into the computer?

It is easy to get the PCI & PCIE stuff mixed up. PCI slots are all white doesn't matter who makes the board. PCIE however is all together different from a PCI slot. The PCIE slot sits fauther away from the back of the computer & so does a AGP. PCIE is a very long card. A PCI is not. The short slot you saw is also a PCIE slots. Not for video but more likely for network card. Most people never use them. Most likely the long slot above the short slot is a PCIE. So you want a card that is like what I'm going to list in this link.

    From your description the long slot next to a very small slot sounds like.... The long slot is likely a PCI-Express. The smaller slot is a PCI-Express 1x speed. The GeForce FX5200 series comes in two types. PCI & AGP. Again post the model number of your Dell & I can post a suggestion video card. You can also check your manual which will tell you what the Dell can take.

    According to the spec sheets I'm looking at you not only have a intergrated sound card but you also have a intergrated modem & intergrated video.The intergrated video is a PCI card. The bad part is it shares your system memory (Dimm). You have 256MB of system memory. You can set your bios to use more or less.

    You do Not have a PCIExpress slot or an AGP slot. Just the two PCI's (white in color) excatly 3 5/16" long. It comes down to just what do you want to do. If your goal is to increase your video memory /speed which will help your gaming & you do not want to loose more system memory than I suggest you increase your system memory to 1GB which is the max amount of memory the 3000 can handle. You can keep the sound card & the video card. Just increase your system memory to 1GB.

    Link to your Dell 3000:

    Suggested memory upgrade: 2 each = Max 1GB

    Well Tex. All I can tell you about the Dell 3000 & the Geforce 5200. It comes in two types. AGP which you do not have a slot for & a PCI type & you have one pened PCI slot. I can not see the 5200 you bought. Since you wrote it doesn't fit I suspect it is an AGP. Both FX 5200 & the strait 5200 come in AGP & PCI.

    If want to add a PCI video card I'll add a link here that list nothing but PCI video cards. Any one will fit you Dell.

I have a dell dimension 4400 and the original graphics card thats came with it but yesterday i when too turn on my computer and the screen is not picking up and image from the CPU is there anything i can...


OK, I am curious how are you going to install a new graphics card without installing a new graphics card? "picking up and image from the CPU is there anything i can do to install a new PCI graphics card with out having too install the new graphics card"

You can install a different graphics card in the computer assuming you have an open expansion slot. If the Current Graphics card is actually installed in the AGP slot open the Main CPU unit and remove it then install the new card. If when you started the computer you saw anything on the screen, the DELL logo or Bios setup, the problem most likely is not the graphics card being bad but possibly that the settings in windows some how changed and it is set to something it can't support or the monitor has gone out. If it is the graphics card and it is built onto the motherboard you will have to install the new card and when the computer starts enter the Bios to change the BIOS settings to disable the on board card or it will give you problems with conflicting resources. Most graphics cards use the same resources so two cards in the same computer will conflict with each other and neither will work. I would test with a different monitor before replacing the graphics card.

I`ve just bought a graphics card and i am struggling to install it in the mother board


hi this sounds like you may have bought the wrong type of graphics card for your motherboard, depending on the age of your motherboard they have changed over from AGP to PCI-e or even ePCI-e now if you have a slot that looks just like a PCI expansion slot at the top on its own away from the other ones, this will indicate a PCI-e or ePCI-e slot, if you have a brown slot at the top of the other ones this will be a AGP slot, just in case you have the right card, for the right slot, there is a locking clip at the end of the AGP slot that you have to pull to one side to put it in check to see if this is the case, then just do that.........hope this helps

Need help to upgrade graphics card HP Pavillion a1150y


Yes any graphics card will work just depends on the type of picture you want and if you play games. Since it is not factory built hard to tell what kind of PCI/AGP slots are available. To be safe take out the current card and put new one in same slot.

Pls rate this solution.

Install Used ATI 7000 graphics card on Dell Optiplex GX270


OK, I got into Dell. Your motherboard should support an AGP card.

GX270 System Boards

Is there something in the green slot?

That is the AGP slot. If there is something in it, remove it. The ATI card should work in it if it is an AGP card.

PCI Graphic card for Tomb Raider underworld


Hi,
There are PCI slots in your Machine and one or two PCI-Express slots (one of which might be very short). Usually the Graphics PCI-Express slot is the one on top (right below the CPU).
In order to play Tombraider at a decent speed, you should consider buying a Graphicscard for about 100-120$ going to low will result in low framerates, going to high is not worth the money since graphics cards are becoming obsolete in a matter of 2 years or so...

so get yourself a decent PCE-E GraphicsCard and youll be all set!
Hope this was understandable =)

Ack graphics card wont fit in any input slots


the adapter u are using is pci express and the dell dimension 9100 are not compatible.. try returning it for either a pci (usually the white slot) or AGP which in most cases is brown.. the AGP will be your best performance.. if return is not an option.. then it seems that a new pc is in your best interest.

Seems from what i gathered that as long as its an SLI ready motherboard with a open 16x PCI-E compliant slot and of course its gotta fit your tower. Find out the form factor of the tower then also make sure that it fits the correct type of ram that you have and prosesser. Then u should be good to go!
