Graphics card for HP slimline 3300t PC

Hello - I am trying to hook up my compact 3300t with dual monitors, however it is becoming increasingly difficult for me to find any kind of graphics card that will simply fit in the machine. I know how to install and hook everything up but I cannot find a decent graphics card that supports Vista and 2 20" widescreen monitors that ALSO fits my machine. Any ideas or suggestions of what I need? I even called HP and they sent the wrong card . . . I'm getting a little frustrated to say the least!

    Here are the monitors I have.

    HP w2007 20-inch Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor

    I just bought a low profile card - this would be my 3rd one

    :( really hoping it will work. Just to confirm this is an HP slimline PC not a compaq. Thanks for all your help!

    I got mine working fine but it wasn't easy. HP told me the same thing prior to my purchase and sent me the wrong card. I was ready to return the whole thing and go back to my old computer! The only thing that will work for the slimline computers is a low profile bracket. The graphics card I got is a decent mid grade (bout $150) but it works and that's all i care about :) If you want the product number I can easily get that for you but if you're into heavy gaming it probably won't be the highest quality you can get.

    I love how the slimline looks but its impossible graphic card options are limited. I'll probably go back to the big bulky PC or a MAC when I upgrade.

Most cards, that are skinny, will have or you can buy a low profile braket for it, But look at the card, if it looks like it is skinnier than most then it will probably fit.

Don't know why it won't work

You won't be able to. Your on board graphics does not support it. You would have to update your graphics card and with your laptop you are unable to do so.

Hp pavilion slimline s3100n boots up - fan on - monitor reads no video signal

The most common causes are:
  1. Loose video cable on either monitor or back of desktop
  2. Bad monitor (only way to test monitor is hook it up to another machine or hook up a known working monitor to your existing machine.
  3. Bad video card - this is less likely since most video cards are on board but if you have a different card, check to ensure it's seated properly on the motherboard.

Unfortunately, there is no way to run on board graphics with your dedicated graphics card. One will always be disabled, (would need a hybrid SLI/Crossfire board for that option).

You will need to upgrade to a graphics card that has dual DVI & or VGA outputs built in to be able to hook up 2 monitors. (output type of port depends on what type of connector you have on the monitor cables)

At start up my monitor goes to sleep and stays. hooked up another monitor and it did the same thing. hp pavilion a6600f PC and hp w2207h monitor

the most likely issue is the computer's graphics card. to avoid extra problems, try replacing it with the same model graphics card.

Hi. I was buying HP Pavilion slimline 5310sc and want to put a new graphic card in it, to play games. What cards would fit best? Bjarki

Graphics cards are of many companies. For my opinion, Ge-force and N-vidia graphics cards are best. 512 mb graphics cards are well for playing games. As your need of gaming, buy high capacity graphics card as 1 gb or 2 gb.

My hp slimline's screen flickers violently at times and then it calms, but sometimes my computer restarts. Sometimes on restart it will not communicate a signal to the monitor. Problem has gotten steadily...

That issue normally happens with the graphics card. I am not sure if you have a PCI or an AGP graphics card or an onboard graphics card. But for all of the issue, you can try updating the motherboard chipset driver, or the graphics card (incase you have the onboard or AGP graphics card).

Try logging in to BIOS stay for some time and check if the screen flickers. If the screen flickers still in BIOS, its a possible graphics issue

No analog signal

Sounds like the graphics card is gone belly up. Try the monitor with another pc or just replace the graphics card.
Hope this helps
