    Typically, you should see at least two or three PCI slots available, unless they have already been used by someone for something else.

    Are you able to remove the cover from the computer? If so, how many open/unused slots do you see?

A1230n ethernet port

If this machine is running XP, or earlier (98, 2000, ME, etc.), beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine, or don't try to get on the Internet with this one.

HP Pavilion a1230n had bad power supply I changed it out for a better one of the same make and model. Now when it turns on I can hear the hard drive spinning and the fans running but it beeps every few...

If the beeping is coming from the power supply, that typically means that you are pulling too much wattage. I would recommend trying a higher wattage power supply. The video card is one of the lowest things on the computer's list of things to keep running at all costs, because even if your video card flickers off, you won't lose data. Before getting another new power supply though, I would ensure that your video cables are properly plugged into your video card and your monitor. To be sure that they are snug simply screw them in so that they don't wiggle at all when you pull on them.

After a long time trying to start my computer has a blank screen that says "system failure insert recovery disk" I have recovery disk that I made when the unit was new. but they do not do anything.

Try rebooting the computer with the back up disk inserted in the slot. This should work because the computer looks at all the disk drives when it reboots. And should default to the backup disk. :)

Check your video card connection.Be sure you have set the default monitor in the BIOS settings.If it still doesn't work. Try to install a video card because your motherboard maybe faulty.

I need a list of compatible video cards for an hp pavilion a1220n, can any one help?


I would recommend Nvidia graphics card.
It is one of the best, and compatible with your computer.
I would recommend one of the most recent models.
Check with your local computer shops and they will assist you in getting a good recent model.

Hp a1230n heating

Robert, I recommend you to open the chassis cover and check if there is any obstruction of any air vent. Meanwhile, if you can hear a loud fan spinning of the CPU heatsink, you might have to replace the thermal paste, the instruction

If the problem still persist, don forget to come back here. I will try my best to help you.
