First of it is possible to do all that you suggest.

I would up the PSU a ittle more to 450 minimum

The ram needs to be in matched pairs in no more than 667 DDR2

The video card is any PCI-E and my personal preference for ease of use is NVIDIA

My hp Compaq DC7900 has 5 beeps with 5 red light flashing does this 3 times. then the fan kicks on. That's all it does. Anyone know what this is?


This is a sign of a pre-video memory error. If your DC7900 has a video graphics card, that card has probably failed or doesn't have enough power. On at least some of HP's Compaq DC7900, the video card uses a PCIe x16 slot.

There are two things to consider when you choose a new video graphics card: 1) it must fit in a slot in your case and 2) your power supply must meet the requirements of the card. The small tower format of the HP Compaq DC7900 came with a 240W power supply. Most modern video graphics cards often need more power. You may need to upgrade the power supply.

I hope this helps.

I want to get a few more years out of my a450n so I began to upgrade some components. I first installed a sound card a few years ago to get 5.1 surround...no problems. Then I installed the max 2 gb of RAM...


If I've got the right unit, you have an AGP 8x slot which means you can get an AGP 8x graphics card. The selection of the AGP cards is not what it used to be so you make have to upgrade your PSU, depending on whats avalable. If I'm also got the right unit, it came with Nvidia GeForce FX5200 graphics and, I'm guessing that is intigrated. If the fan is a problem for you, you can get "spped fan" here:

This will allow you to adjust your fan speeds.
As far as a Graphics card goes:

Something like this would work for you, it requires a 300w power supply, others are available. The thing I like about the Radeon HD cards is that your can get the graphics and they have built in sound as well. If it doesn't come with the DVI adaptor, you can order one.

Can I upgrade the video card on a Gateway E4300 to work with Shader 3 graphics (Eve Online)? Or do I have to buy a new computer?


You only really need to upgrade the video card and the PSU (most video cards need more power than what most companies like dell and gateway provide.). So no need to buy a new computer.

I added a new video card and the monitor wont come on


1) Did you plug the monitor into the graphics card?

(Hey, happens! Sometimes in our zealousness to see what that baby will do, we mess up a little)

2) Did you install the Drivers? First?

These will be on the installation disk that comes with the graphics card.
Recommend installing the software from the disk FIRST, then turn the computer off, unplug from power, install the graphics card.

3) Does the graphics card require additional power?

Some graphics cards will not receive enough power, from the graphics expansion slot they are inserted into.

[Gateway GM5084 uses a PCI Express x16 slot, for best graphics.

(Left-click on Specifications]

Some powerful graphics cards require additional power cables from the Power Supply.

My gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs **** *** window 7... or explorer 8... or flashplayer 10... how can i upgrade my computer 2 make it run these programs ? a new hard drive ? or what do i do...


Hi,

You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

Thanks

I have a mobo C51PVGM-GB that I would like to upgrade the video card and not use the one built into the Mobo.


You are upgrading the graphics.
Instead of using Integrated Graphics, you will be using a dedicated graphics card.

Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard.

The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered to the motherboard.

It is not a video (Graphics) card.

A dedicated graphics adapter card has it's own GPU, and graphics ram memory.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

Information on the Gateway 4006136R - Nvidia GeForce 6150 AM2 uBTX 1394 motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006136R/4006136Rnv.shtml

Viewing this small photo of the motherboard, the Orange long slot you see is a PCI Express x16 slot.

1) The Northbridge chip is a C51PVG
2) The Southbridge chip is an MCP51

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another name is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

3) Made by ECS
4) Has an AM2 processor socket on the motherboard, for AMD processors.

    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.
