Hello there, I'd be glad to help you with that. According to your question you have a Gateway 510 X. If that is the case you have an Nvidia FX5200 video card (also called an NV34).

Also, you can check what kind of card you have by clicking the START button, right clicking on My Computer, and going to properties. You will either see DEVICE MANAGER on the left hand side or you will have a HARDWARE tab one of the two. Click Device Manager (or if you have a hardware tab, go to that then click Device Manager) and this will pop up the list of hardware in your computer. Go do DISPLAY ADAPTERS towards the top of the list and click the PLUS (+) sign next to it, it will drop down what kind of video card software is loaded in your machine (which should tell you what kind of video card you have in your computer).

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

Black screen

If you know your monitor works then the likely culprit is the on-board video could be bad. If you can give me the model # of your computer or if it's a custom computer, the model # of your motherboard, I can let you know what kind of video card your computer takes and what brands to stay away from.

Good luck and hope this helps. If it does, please vote! Thanks!

Im looking to upgrade my dc5000 sff graphic card and I wanted to know what kind of video card i need etc; pci, pci-express..... And if you have a product that could be used in this computer that would be...

Hi W Matt - Unfortunately your PC has only PCI slots available, no dedicated video slots like AGP or PCI-e.

You can get a PCI card with better/faster graphics than you have but the difference won't be dramatic.

If you want something to run Windows 7 in full graphics (Aero) mode and some games at medium settings I would recommend a card using the Nvidia 8400gs chipset. It's a fairly inexpensive card made by many manufacturers and won't put a strain on your systems small power supply.

You must remember that you need a PCI card that is also a low profile version.

I've created a search for what you need at Newegg (an online seller) and you can view the kind of card you need HERE.

Happy Computing!

How do I choose an appropriate video card, I want to edit personal video recordings, and to add audio. I will also be purchasing a new camcorder.

I recommend any ATI Video card with HD in the model number since these are designed with home theater in mind and usually work quite well for video editing.
Example ATI HD4750 etc. Most other video cards are made with gaming in mind and may work ok for your projects, but tend to slow down when I edit video and audio then combine them.

I have a quite old Canon MV400i camcorder, which I am unable to get any connection indication from my new PC when I connected by S video/S video cable, the same applies when connected by the AV in/out jack...

For a camera of the kind you have, you need an analogue video input card in the computer to accept the video input, and you need to play the video into the computer while the computer records it. The PC will not recognise the camera as such, using these AV connections, it will only see a video signal. You don't have to install anything relating to the camera on the computer, but you need software running on the computer that understands the video input card and can take the analogue input and store it in a file. Yes, I know the computer stores the videos on digital tape, but the connectors you are talking about are analogue, and so is the signal at that point.

I am not sure that your computer actually has a video input interface (unless you have installed one?). Sometimes display cards have s-video sockets that are actually output sockets. In any case, video input interface cards generally come with the software required to capture input- it won't be specific to the camera.

Video card

This link covers basically everything you need to know for installing a video card. Basically you need to determine what kind of card you are going to use based on available slots on your motherboard (PCI, AGP, or PCI-E).

Then find a new card (some really good deals on video cards at

Setup is pretty easy, once you physically install the card, you usually just have run the CD that accompanies your video card to install the drivers for it. If your current video card is onboard video, then you will have to disable it in device manager in order for your new card to work properly.

You also want to be sure your power supply is large enough to supply enough juice to your new video card.

How to transfer home video's to computer to make DVD's

Compaq Presario is a product line that has very many configurations. If you have a video capture card you should have all you need. You can identify if you have a capture card by looking at the connectors on the case. Video capture cards have a wide verity of options but it will have the same kind of connections that TV’s and VCR’s use. If you don’t see this type of connectors you don’t already have a capture card.
You options then would be to get a capture card installed or get a USB external capture device. If you plan to be doing a lot of video transfer I would suggest you would get better quality and performance out of the internal card installed in your computer. Most computer shop and many consumer electronics stores should be able to assist you.
