AGP card to replace inboard graphics card

Hi there, Thanks for stopping by. My son is studying Civil Engineering, so he is in need of a more powerful gpu card. My computer is a HP BRIO BA410, it has an Intel Pentium 3 with 512 MB ram. As far as a I know it has 4X slot. The question is can I install an AGP GeForce FX5200 card in it and replace the S3 inboard graphics hardware. Thanks in advance.

Yes, your GeForce is compatible with the BRIOs AGP 2X port. And there is no problem in using an 8X board in a 4X or 2X AGP slotted motherboard... it would only be a problem if you have a 1X AGP port which is rather old (fisrt agp ports on the market).

Fan stops working and overheats and shuts down

Hello, its seems the fan on your card is faulty, because of this it your card overheats and then has to shut down to prevent damage to your computer. You should get it replaced.

My Fan on the Graphic card just stopped working.

The power supply pins located on the graphics board have failed or the fan itself has failed. you should be able to remove the fan and plug it in to a open power souce on the motherboard after bootup and test the fan to insure its not the source of the problem. if the fan works, the graphics card needs replaced. if the fan doesnt work then the fan needs replaced.

ASUS Radeon 9600XT/TVD stop working need to replace.

An nVidia 7800 is the best agp card made, as agp has been taken over by pci-ex16
but any AGP x8 card will do, if its just for word processing and internet stuff just go with a cheaper one.
found on on ebay for £20

Vga not working tried agp video card

Hi Eugene!
Okay, so if there is not beeps of such......
If you can remember the last time you started up your PC or had it running, did you have a power surge?
Try taking out the BIOS Clock (Watch battrie)
for a day or so, then it should be drained... Replace it you might hear beep, if you screencomes on make your processor clock is back around it avrg state if not "Load with optimized default" Option on BIOS. Best bet.

AGP card not detected

remove motherboard battery and re-seat the graphics card if there is a power connector make sure it's plug properly. also check the vga/hdmi cable for loose connections.

The P5PE-VM has an AGP 8x expansion slot. So AGP 8x graphics cards would be compatible. AGP is old and got replaced by PCI Express. But you can still buy AGP cards. the Nvidia 7800 is the best AGP card you can get, because Nvidia stopped creating the technology for AGP cards with this one.
