    I was able to find the motherboard on the web. It is actually an A8N2N-LA. The slot is a PCI-e. I bought a XFX-8600GT card and plan on trying my 300W power supply since it actually has 19A on it's only +12V output. I tried putting the card in and powering up with the current drivers and found that it caused the display on my monitor to shift to the right, barreling and a change in resolution that prevented me from accessing any buttons to access the control panel or shut down. I shut down and haven't done anything else until I am confident that I know the next proper steps to take. It makes me afraid to disable my current video driver.



    Thanks for your help.

Sounds like 8x agp. go to new egg.com. good deals on vid cards there. unfortunately for you the agp doesent get into the higher end video cards. nor does the standard pci. the transfer rates just aren't fast enough. but unless you are doing serious gaming either pci or agp will give you about the same frame rates.

    no big deal really. just adjust the monitor itself back to center. then install drivers. now you may run into stability issues with a 300w psu. but it all depends on what all is installed on your pc. the more components that are installed the more power you need. my current motherboard needs minimum 400w just to post. but thats an asus sli motherboard. but don't fret, the shifted output is not a big isue at all. that happens when you go from on board graphics to vid card all the time. hope this helps.

I am going to upgrade ram to 1 gb. can i use ddr2 1 gb ram to upgrade .motherboard is microstar model ms-6526 ver: 2 . present ram is ddr1 400 MHz, 512 MB


If your computer has two RAM slots on the motherboard, i would recommend trying it. The computer will run on the 512MB stick alone and just not recognise the other stick. And if it works it works.

I have searced for support documentation and came up with none for the original MS-6526

I run my original version MS-6526 on a 512MB PC2300 (DDR1) and a 512MB PC3200 (DDR1) and it runs just fine for games and videos.

Personally I would recommend trying the DDR2 first and if that fails, return the card and get a DDR1 card. They are expensive, but at least they work.

Is the MSI-K9N SLI-Platinum (MS-7250) capable of running an HD capable video card?


I would recommend upgrading your RAM to 2GB or even 4GB before investing into HD video card. It might be jerky. Your processor should be ok for it as it is.

Replacing the motherboard and/or cpu on an Emachine T2958


Your motherboard can handle a P4 2.8Ghz chip with 1MB cache or you could go to the P4 3.06Ghz chip with 512KB cache. And either one would give you a bit of a performance improvement. I think the bigger question would be: is there any place locally where you could get a screamin' deal on a motherboard/CPU package that would still support the memory your currently have?

A motherboard replacement would not require you go purchase a new retail MS OS. It would require re-activation of your current product though which could entail a toll-free phone call to Microsoft and your existing product key.

Graphics card issue - GA-0ST800 Motherboard


Your motherboard have an AGP 4X port, you can easy upgrade whit that card since it is an APG-card. Not sure tough that your motherboard can handle all that DDR3 power witch come with the card but im sure u will notice a big improvment.
I think that a cheaper card with 512 Mb DDR2 will give u the same results.

Good luck

RAM error with RAM Installed


Hi,
As I figure your problem, it seems that you upgraded your motherboard, and video card, but the other part are still the same with your previous P2, if you upgrade your computer better to upgrade everything, cause if your still using the old part like the RAM, the upgraded computer will not detect that part.
Thanks.
