Question about HP Compaq Presario SR2180NX (RK548AA#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I want to add a video card upgrade to my Compaq Presario SR2180NX, which came with an Intel 82945G Express Chipset integrated video with 128MB DDR RAM. Would an nvidia geforce 8000 with 512MB work without upgrading my power unit?

    Can you reccomend a particular card that would work. I am not a gamer, just like to view videos - preferably utilizing an hdmi interface to my flatscreen monitor.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I will try this approach and do hope it works.

NO you would need a extra power supply or upgrade your power unit to at least a 500 WATT see Hp jips its customers and puts a 350 watt or a 400 watt in there systems so then you are not going to have the connectors to power that card in the pci E slot. So you will need to unfortunately upgrade the power supply. its for your benefit to do so anyhow.

    Sure I would and that would be EVGA cards any amount of ram will do but when you go shopping look at your power req's make sure you stay under 300W for that card.



    good luck with it

DOWNLOAD ATI RADEON PCI EXPRES X300 SE 128MB


Need more information on the exact problem and what and where you downloaded. I assume you are replacing the integrated video adapter with a PCI expansion slot.

You must disable the integrated Motherboard video adapter in the BIOS. The new card must be compatible with the expansion bus in your computer. New drivers new from the manufacturer must be installed before the PCI express card.

Follow the instructions included with the new graphics card.

I have an ATI - Radeon AGP HD 3450 512 mb video card. can i use it in my hp compaq dc7600 ultra slim with any problems.? can someone please help me out.thanks.


Hi Michael,

The HP DC7600 Ultra Slim Desktop only has either onboard Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset graphics or a single PCI slot for you to add a PCI (not PCI-express) graphics card.

The system board does have a PCI-express slot, however this is not fully implimented by HP and is only used to run a secondary additional monitor from the onboard Intel Chipset graphics when used with an HP-specific adapter.

AGP is not present on the system board and is therefore not supported.

On a related note, also be aware that some PCI graphics cards required the PCI 2.2 bus standard to be supported in the PC - I have no idea if the Ultra-Slim actually supports this, so do further research to ensure compatability before purchase of any PCI graphics card for your machine.

Good luck!

I have a dell dimension 3000. I want to add a 2nd monitor. I believe the video is integrated, Does the unit have a slot to add a video card. What kind of card should be added?


The Dimension 3000 Springdale G chipset supports AGP 8X cards, integrated video, integrated audio, ICH5, 533/800 MHz FSB, dual channel DDR 333/400 memory, integrated Serial ATA, and the Intel Pentium 4 Prescott.
The AGP 8X slot refers to Advanced Graphics Port. You can add a AGP video card if you motherboard has that slot. Usually that slot is encased by a green plastic enclosure .

  • Motherboard: MSI MS-7525

Hi sunee, when a motherboard has an integrated graphics card it's something you can not see. (Integrated mean part of the board). The Intel you have has an 865GV chipset (No card slot). You'll need to enter your bios & find your graphics card. The bad part of a integrated video card is it shares your main system memory to function. So if you set the memory usage to say 128MB & your PC has a total of 512MB your video card takes 128MB leaving your system to run 384Mb.
This link is drivers for your 865GV chipset Intel board.
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=1049&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
This link shows your board & its specifications.
http://www.firingsquad.com/hw/4096/FIC_P4M-865GV/

You can add a PCI video card to free system memory.
I suggest you check your manual. You are looking to see if your bios will allow you to use a PCI video card.
