I have a pretty old computer but i dont think that is why my graphic card is messes up. its a window 200. ok when i first go tthis comp it was working fine then one day when i started up a gb emulator that i play it was giong really slow unlike wat it used to be. my graphic card is Direct 3d. i also cant play high graphic games when i start it up a window pops up then it has some random symbols in it, the only thing i can read is Direct 3d and Direct X. So if u can tell me how i can fix this plz tell me. maybe a software that fixes this kinds of things or do i have to get a brand new graphic card. if u suggest for me to buy a new one can u tell me the best place to buy one??

hi, you may even find a new graphics card won't help. you are most likley suffering from an overheated northbridge. there not usually monitored for temp this is on the MB so, not good news as this will eventually go dead. and even re- greasing at this point won't help. however. by disassembling both the video card and northbridge heat sinks. you should find one of them pretty dried out.
those beeps are actually codes telling you HEY something is wrong with me and that particular beep means there is something wrong with the display card so you should try to re seat your graphics card or maybe even check to make sure that you ram is good and in working condition
It's never 100% "safe" to update even with good drivers. You'll want to take precautions like making sure you have a backup copy of the old drivers just in case something goes wrong and you are not able to revert to the old drivers. As long as you are getting the drivers off of the official website for the exact card you have, and the operating system you are using is supported, it's usually pretty safe.
that is an old budget graphics card not meant for gaming. An Ati 3650 or Nvidia 8600gt or better would suffice for gaming. The minimum specs for games show what is needed just to play the game at the lowest detail and resolution. UPGRADE!
First you should have the driver for your graphic card, its always better to uninstall it rather than doing the update for most cases because these is the . Then try to go to safe mode, restart your computer and press f8, then choose safe mode, when you on your desktop right click my computer then go to manage or if you know how to go directly to the device manager, if you see the display adapter from there uninstall it and go to the control panel or in add/remove programs then make sure that the name of the video card driver is not there, e.g nvidia/inter graphic driver. Then go to the normal mode or you can stay on the safe mode and install it. If there is a latest driver update you can go to the card's manufacturer and download it and if you have the previous driver, always make sure to uninstall it.
as for the pcie slot you need to enter the startup setup and choose the graphics card that your computer uses which is mainly the "integrated periferals" menu, then choose that the pcie card is your primary graphice card or simply disable your older card.
you might want to try uninstalling net.frameworks 2.0 (or new versions) restart, then uninstall your graphic drivers restart, then install your net.framework first then install your graphic drivers. NOTE: make sure your net.framework is the most recent one i think its 3.0 (make sure its updated by internet explorer > tools > windows update) and make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card (which you do).
