What graphics card is in the imedia 5064


I think as supplied, this PC uses the on-board graphics (built into to the m/b). As this PC is 2nd hand, it may already contain a graphics card.
To fins about your system easily without opening the case you could go to www.piriform.com and download a program "speccy" (free). Run this and it will tell you the details of your system including the graphics card type and detail of the memory. The simple memory can be obtained from Windows > My computer > (right click on) properties if I remember correctly).
Next go here
http://www.wowwiki.com/System_requirements You will find the minimum system requirements for playing WoW. You may find that to upgrade not only the graphics card but also the RAM. If you need and decide to upgrade the graphics card be sure to shoose one that is compatible with your computer with your computer/motherboard. I suspect (http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/1/tech-helproom/69141/packard-bell-imedia-5064-motherboard/) it may be very similar to this one
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=1335#ov but I don't know for certain. This page contains all the details for that motherboard. Note that speccy will give you some detail about your motherboard and memory types required as well.
Depending on which graphics card you decide (this may be helpful http://www.playtool.com/pages/vidtable/table.html ) on you may need to upgrade your power supply (PSU). It's very easy to do this; more difficult is to decide on which PSU to choose. You may need to some research (as with the graphics cards and memory). There is some good second hand stuff - PSUs graphics cards memory often available through ebay but caveat emptor - read listings very thoroughly and carefully, don't pay too much (set your limit before you look).

This thing is old. Just buy a new computer for cheap. If you upgrade the motherboard and CPU you will have to upgrade the HDD, the memory any video card you have and possibly the CD/DVD player. New motherboard will require newer of all the components I listed. So essentially buy a new computer it will be cheaper.

Keeps beeping when i turn it on but there is no signal to the screen


A beep code usually means there is a problem with the motherboard, CPU or some other hardware. You have to listen carefully to the code, write it down if necessary,ie: one long, two short, etc. and refer to your manual. Alot of times it's a ram problem,ie, either one stick is bad or maybe there is a bad connection. Write down your beep code and repost.

I have Packard Bell iMedia 5094 (P660403401) which is very slow on start up and running programs can upgrade or add to the memory to speed it up


Howdy. unless you are doing nothing but very basic word processing, that computer will not run most modern programs well or at all. There is no way to speed it up enough to match current applications. A variety of faster machines are available for as little as 200 dollars. You can keep your mouse, keyboard and monitor and just replace the tower, or get all new for just a little more. walmart, tigerdirect dot com or overstock dot com have a bunch of deals. It's cool that it still works, though. you must keep it pretty clean. Farmerbear at FixYa

WHERE CAN I BUY A POWER SUPPLY CABLE FOR A PACKARD BELL dk22000282 i media 5069 pc


You can purchase this cord (or poser supply) from the manufacturer, or any of the big box stores that handle computers .... a few examples I am familiar with K-mart - Office Max - Office Depot - Staples - Wal Mart - Radio Shack - Best Buy. You will probably be greeted wby FixYa.com advertisers who can help you with this as well.

There is likely a computer repair guy struggling to get by, who lives around the corner from you (where ever that is) who would also be happy to assist you with this problem.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

I have tried to upgrade my Packard Bell Imedia 1559 to 4 gigs from 1 gig of factory installed memory. However, the machine will not accept memory from Kingston or Transcend in any combination, and although...


I have read many posts about the PB Imedia and problems trying to upgrade memory. Sounds like there are some motherboard issues with this PC . Some have reported success with mixing different memory types and speeds, but no real answers as to why.

You may have to check the voltage that powers the memory. Some memory sticks are rated at 1.8v , others use other voltages that will hang your system if mixed.

Check with the manufacturer for their recommendation.
