Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) @yahoo.comI have windows 7 on - julyallan01_52.jpg

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 :)

Did you run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor before you installed Win 7. You may find that windows 7 doesn't allow the use of your graphics hardware. With the issue of Win 7, Microsoft decided that they would only allow the use of hardware that had been tested by themselves. To enforce this all drivers for Win 7 onwards require "Signed Drivers" to operate properly. You may need to buy a Win 7 ready graphics card to continue with a stable computer.

What are the pros and cons of upgrading your OS from win7 starter to windows 7 ultimate? Given that the processor is N450 on a netbook.


Hello,

There are basically no con's to upgrading. You will gain some features when you upgrade. You may have to install new device drivers for some devices like mouse, external hard drive to work properly, but this is unlikely.

Windows 7 Starter does not include:

* Aero Glass, meaning you can only use the Windows Basic or other opaque themes. It also means you do not get Taskbar Previews or Aero Peek.
* Personalization features for changing desktop backgrounds, window colors, or sound schemes.
* The ability to switch between users without having to log off.
* 64 bit version
* Multi-monitor support.
* DVD playback.
* Windows Media Center for watching recorded TV or other media.
* Remote Media Streaming for streaming your music, videos, and recorded TV from your home computer.
* Domain support for business customers.
* XP Mode for those that want the ability to run older Windows XP programs on Windows 7.

So, you can gain some additional features when you upgrade!

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!

Windows 7 is superior to XP, in my opinion. If you have 7 there isn't any reason to go back to XP, which is no longer supported by Microsoft in a big way.

I think that the graphics card on a laptop is integrated onto the motherboard in ways such that upgrading to a better graphics card is not generally possible.

It's fun to think about these things, though.

Please i want to enable aero in windows 7 my direct x is 11 and 64mb graphics


Hi waquashashmi,

A way to know if your Windows 7 system supports Aero or not is to look at Windows Experience Index score. The score (both base score and subscore for graphics component) should be equal or higher than 3.0 for Aero to work. To view your Windows Experience Index, go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System, then click on "Windows Experience Index".

To display Aero effects such as transparency in Windows 7, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that Windows Experience Index has been calculated and computed.
  2. Click on Start menu.
  3. Type the following text into the Start Search box: Aero
  4. Click on a search result listing under Control Panel group that named as the following: Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects
    arun_zac_16.jpg
    Trick: If you don't see "Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects" in the search results, click on Control Panel to see all Aero related items in Control Panel.
  5. An "Aero - Troubleshoot computer problems" wizard dialog will appear. Click on Next button. arun_zac_17.jpg
  6. The troubleshooting wizard will try to detect any problem by running a series of checks against various components required to make Aero works and running, such as video memory, Desktop Windows Manager (DWM) service, color depth, theme, power settings and etc. At the end of the analysis, the wizard will attempt to fix the issues related to Aero service and restart the Aero feature. arun_zac_18.jpg

Thank you for using Fixya,

Can I add a graphics card to my Acer Aspire 3610 so that I can run Windows 7 with Aero?


Unfortunately no... in the interest of keeping laptops and notebooks slim, the graphics card is integrated into the mainboard and not removable or upgradeble. You can still enjoy most of the features of Windows 7, but depending on the graphics card, may not be able to experience all the features of Aero. You will need to upgrade to a laptop with a graphics card that meets the criteria for AERO or simply continue to use your current system. It depends on your preference, however in my opinion, while Aero is nice, its not worth getting a new laptop for. You aren't missing much except eye-candy.

Hope this answers your question.

How to upgrade a Compaq Presario SR1211NX video card to a better one?


Find the video card you want, You must make sure that your new video card will fit into the system as some cards need the extended PCI slot that your computer does not have. The system should recognise the new vidxeo card, but if it doesn't you will need to go into your computer's BIOS with the f10 key on startup. Once in Setup, go to Advanced with the right arrow key, then down arrow to Primary Video Adapter. Pfress Enter, select PCI, then press Esc then F10 to save and exit.
