    I see, but don't some cards require a power supply of at LEAST 500W or more? I am running an old NVida GeoForce FX 5200 that doesn't need any external power, but were I to "attempt" to upgrade to say, something in the 7000 or 8000 series, won't these cards require more power, or will that simply blow up my computer?



    This is what I have under the hood:



    HP Pavilion 763n

    Windows XP HOME

    Intel P-4 @2.53GHz

    WD Caviar 160GB HD (Internal)

    WD MyBook HD (3 ea. = 2.5TB)

    2GB RAM (PC2000/2300 DDR 2 x 1GB DIMM)

    GeoForce FX 5200 Card

Video card upgrade compatibility for compaq presario sr1900 nx with windows 7 sp1 installed


All the information for your computers motherboard can be found here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00714521&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3190727#N534

The motherboard has a x16 PCI Express Video Card slot , so you should be able to put any PCI Express Video Card into this system. I would however refrain from putting something extremely powerful in there as you will encounter issues with the weak power supply in the system (Unless you upgrade the power supply too)

All modern video cards are PCI Express :)

Need graphics upgrade


Your Mobo supports PCI and PCI Express x16 Graphics Cards. Keep in mind some Graphics Cards require a MIN. Power Supply Unit, PSU. How much Memory do you have installed? That a easy upgrade. You can find some useful info here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00864946&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3340228#N144 ALSO, your choise of cards is good Take a look at this for example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006662%2040000048&IsNodeId=1&Description=graphic%20cards&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20. ON the left side of the page you can select PCI or PCI e x16, which is a faster slot/card. You can also Upgrade your CPU, in the HP support page it list the Compatible CPU. Here is a Little freeware program that may help: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/. For further assistance respond to post.

What graphics card is compatable for hp d530


I'm not going to go through a list for you, but I can tell that you don't have many options. The HP Compaq Business Desktop D530 uses a small form factor which means you don't have the same space as normal desktop users inside of your machine for the vast majority of display adapters. You would need at least a medium form factor for that.
The other problem is that your power supply is only 185W and can't supply the the amount of power needed for most desktop class display adapters.
The machine you are using wasn't designed to ever be used for gaming, and it shows. You would need to get a bigger computer case and higher watt (around 400 to 600 watt) power supply to support most desktop display adapters.

I want to upgrade video card for my pc(HP Pavillion a1120n) i wanted to know what kind of video card is compitible with my pc. please help thanks. ;)


From what I gather, your computer has a PCIe v1.0 slot for a video card upgrade and comes with intel on-board video. So you will need a PCIe 2.0 video card (v1.0 are no longer available and 2.0 are backwards compatible)

I assume, like most PC's, yours has a 350-450 Watt Power Supply. Check your power supply to be sure, you just can't put any video card, you are limited to the available power from the power supply. If you want a top of the line video card for gaming you will need a more powerful power supply. If all you need is better performance and better video quality (DVI/HDMI) then any sub $100 dollars card will do.

I cannot emphasize enough, check your power supply wattage capacity and the watts required by the new card before buying.

Also, do you have additional power connection from the power supply for the new card? most cards, not all, require a 6-pin PCIe power connector.

For the average user I recommend:

Hp Pavilion 763n won't startup light on fan on cpu not running


The most common issue is a portion of the power supply has gone bad (power supplies provide +5, +12, -5, and -12 vdc). Otherwise, the motherboard may need replacing. Try finding a spare power supply from a friend and hook it up to see if everything runs fine before purchasing one (about $40-50). If the power supply doesn't fix it, it could be the CPU (although I believe the CPU fan would still run) or any portion of the motherboard.

This HP CPU is compatible with VGA Card "AGP". Like Nvidia Geforce FX5200 128MB Bit or Up, try also RADEON AGP VGA Card Compatible.

Power Supply


is there a problem you are encountering? does your pc shutting down? what is your present power supply wattage? if that is 300watts then you can change even 450watts.
