    I did that and all that happens is the pc screams at me the instant it begins to boot, but I will do it again and see if I keep hitting F10 it will take me to BIOS instead of screaming.

You need to power off the PC, install the new video card, turn on the PC and go into the BIOS and disable the onboard VGA, and set the BIOS to use the new card. i.e AGP slot.

Hi I have a evo d51c copaq and I'm not a video signal, nothing appears, and provide the processor and memory on another computer and all is well, the tube operating normally, I turn off and now will...


In this computer the video chip (the one that generates the signal) is part of the chipset of the motherboard - the one that joins all the other parts of the pc.
In your case the video chip has failed first, followed immediately by all the chipset. This means that the motherboard has died, cannot be fixed and it will have to be replaced.
Because this is an very old model the only place in which you could find another similar motherboard are repair shops or sites that sell parts from dismembered pc's. One like

O.k..so heres my problem...i just upgraded to a better video card on my gaming computer...and i wanted to put my old video card on my other desktop...its a compaq evo d51c...but i doesnt fit...i found out...


Hi,

PCI-Express videocards will not work in standard, older PCI slots. They are very different interfaces.

You can find older video cards that are PCI, but they are not very fast and have not been popular for ~10 years.

Problem with onboard video of a compaq sr2032x


The onboard video card is actually set to secondary when you plug in a PCI or PCI-E video card. If no video image is showing then there may be further damage inside the mother board.

Can I upgrade 32 mb Video display of my compaq evo n1000c?


As the Video Card is integrated into the Motherboard for your Model, the only way to upgrade is to change the entire board with a larger integrated Video Card. I believe there is a board with a 64MB ATI Card available. Cost of this board replacement may be more than ugrading to a newer system with higher performance specifications.

Compaq EVO 510 CMT


Accourding to other users that own the 510CMT, once the AGP card has been installed it automatically disables the onboard graphics card. http://forums12.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?prodSeriesId=316510&prodTypeId=12454&threadId=1050434&admit=109447627+1213753294488+28353475

From reading post from the link above, the EVO can run only a 4x 1.5v AGP video card and it's picky about this. So if you have an AGP card & it runs both 8x & 4x speed chances it wil not function in the EVO.
Here is a list of AGP 1.5v 4x cards that should function in the EVO:
