Okay an AGP video card will go into a brown slot but not all computers have one, especially dells. The computer should automatically detect when a new video card is inserted and run off of it bypassing the onboard video. If you do have a brown slot and it's different than the connection of the video card you purchased, then you need a PCI express video card. This slot can be other colors as well. If you don't have a PCIe slot then you need a PCI video card that will go into one of the available white slots on your motherboard.

That being said, when you said the colors weren't great, what exactly did that mean? You may just have needed to tell the computer to display in high quality (32 bit) or change the options in the game to do so.

    Okay I've looked up your specs and what you have is an AGP 4x slot. Even though the card you have may have an extra slot in it, it should still fit and the 8x speed will automatically downgrade itself. So as long as you can put it in your computer without forcing it, it should work :c)

    Yes it is the top slot.

I need a sd card and cable for sony f 717


Your Sony uses a memory stick called Sony Memory Stick Pro which they don't make any more, it was replaced with a smaller card called Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo, go to ebay and buy a adapter called Sony Memory Stick Pro Adapter it is sliver in color with blue color at the end. Once you get ahold of that adapter, you can now buy the new smaller card called Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo and insert it to that adapter, then slide the adapter with the new smaller card into your camera.
I have several older Sony digital camera that I converted to use the newer Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo cards, it works great ! I checked your Sony model on Ebay and you have to scroll down a bit to see those adapters I just mentioned, some sell with the adapter and the newer memory stick already included in the price.

I just installed SIMS 3, and it keeps freezing up and crashing. Is my ATI Radeon X600 the problem?


The card is most likely NOt the problem, best thing to do is upgrade the Graphics drivers and other drivers... If that doesnt work...
Check to make sure the Ram is sufficient,
I believe it would be the problem if its a older card, and Sims 3 is a high Polygon game. and Alot of radeon cards Get old quick.. if You really want to play sims 3 Upgrade your Video Card If your running a Crossfire Mother board (Ati only) Buy one of the new Ati cards 4890 i believe is the newest one, Its a great card
If your running a Full compatibility board buy one of the new Nvidia's But before you buy make sure your Computer Supports it :)

UNLOCKED CELL PHONE


try using your sim card in a previous or other phone. (one that is not soft unlocked but factory unlocked or branded.) if the sim still doesnt work then you may just need to get a new one from your provider.

Unable to unistall to reinstall new driver


I think your best bet would be to disable the network adapter in "Device Manager". Install the driver that you want to use, then restart the PC and see if it sets it up with the driver you want. I don't know if "Vista" has the "Driver Rollback" feature, but if it does you may can try that also. I'm thinking the reason error messages occur when you're trying to uninstall that driver is because it's in use and needs to first be disabled. I'm not too familiar with Vista cause I've heard many bad things about it and didn't want to chance it, so unfortunately I can only give you my best guess ... hope this helps
