Question about Gateway 500 X PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer Trouble I started off with a problem with my old graphics card. I installed a new GeForce 6200oc 256mb Card and a new 400 watt power supply. Now I have trouble, mainly when I put my computer in standby then go back and try to use it. Sometimes it works fine. Other times it will bring up the desktop and either lockup or shut down completely and restart. Sometimes I'll get a message that said my computer just recovered from a hardware error. I have updated the bios and changed a setting for standby in the bios that seemed to help or so I thought. I also tried updating the video drivers but this created another problem so i went back to the one that came with the card. Any ideas!

Most likely an IRQ conflict error between other hardware. Double check settings first, then try to reinstall drivers. This might help: http://www.helpwithpcs.com/upgrading/change-irq-settings.htm

I want to upgrade my graphics card, i currently have a Nvidia Geforce 7300 LE installed, which is 128 mb. Which new grapihic card can i install in my motherboard?


Hello here is the homepage for your mainboard:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5GCMX1333/#specifications


Your mainboard is using the PCI-E 16 socket.

This is great because all new graphic card has this socket.

I would choose a AMD graphic card, 1 to 2 gb in the 6000 series.

Price is around 100 to 200 dollars.

But some of them will need external power from the power supply
as they need 100 to 200 watts, depending how much money you will spend.

You will maybe also need a new power supply for at least 500 watts.

A local computer dealer or online shop can sell you a great graphic card.

Please uninstall all old nvidia graphic software, before installing the new graphic software.


Good luck

Hi Yasir,


pcsyke_134.jpg

As you can see from the image above the molex power from the PSU is connected to the card for additional power. from your post "Where as the power cable is duly connected" like the image?. If you connected the supplementary power, you have to consider the peripherals connected to your desktop and the brand of your power supply.

The link would help you if your power supply wattage is sufficient. Link
If you are using generic power supply, for example a 500 watt power supply the real wattage can be 300-400 watts only.

Using a tru rated supply might fix the problem. try to test a different power supply for your system or try to turn off or remove additional devices that consumes power that might help.


Hopefully this information helped.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hp compaq d530 400 watt power supply


You will not find a power supply for this case. Why would you want to upgrade such an old computer? Get yourself a new one with amply power for your needs. If you are one that upgrades regularly, get a standard case with standard components that can be upgraded without the hassle of replacing proprietary form-factor compnents.

Looking to buy a new graphics card


You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.

You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.

Is the 350 watt power supply ok for EVGA 6800 128 mb agp card ?


I would suggest at least a 400 watt power supply as the amount of peripherals you are running will soon take up the 350 watt supply, but go for a 500w as the price difference is negligable.
