Hello.
I recommend you to buy the best you can afford, to be sure about compatibility you should look in your Motherboard manual
and look for what kind of graphics ports does it have and all the information related.
- PCI Express x16 ?
- PCI Express x1 ?
- AGP ?
- PCI ?
From top to bottom the performance decreases.

Also make sure your power supply can deliver the power the graphics card is going to need, you can see the power comsuption of the card in the manufacturer specification.
If you don't have the motherboard manual you can visit the manufacturer website and look for it.

About graphics cards manufacturers:
- Nvidea
- ATI
I have more experience with Nvidea, Geforce series are exellent.

I Hope this help you.

Hi

I am afraid Dimension 3000 has no support for PCI-e or AGP Video cards. You can however install a PCI Video card in one of the three PCI slots. Just ensure that the PCI Video Card you get is universal (i.e. supports both 3.3 and 5 volts).

When you have your new PCI Video card, check here for guide to install the hardware.

My dyson Max 08-21663b WHEN FULLY CHARGED I TURN IT ON AND IT RUNS FOR 5 SECONDS AND GOES OFF AND DOES THE SAME THING REPEATELY I BELIEVE ITS MY BATTERY PACK WHICH IS A 6 CELL CAN YOOU ADVISE ME?


Yes the battery pack would be the most likely culprit here. Go on eBay and buy the correct battery cells and build one using the old one as a guide. This method will save you about 50% over trying to buy a make up replacement if available. This is an easy job, just take your time, buy batteries with solder tabs.

What software should I use to bypass my university internet restrictions?


If the games are in fact, "yours" then you can configure your game server to publish on the normal HTTP port (80). Then, you will have no trouble at all.

Screeen is upside down


If you have a Windows OS, press and hold the ALT and CTRL (control) keys and then press the Up arrow. (If that doesn't work, try holding the Alt and CTRL keys and pressing the left (or right) arrow key twice.) If that fails, right click on the desktop (Windows+D will minimize all programs), anywhere with no running programs or icons. Then select the Screen Resolution option. Look for the line Orientation; use the drop down menu to select the correct orientation. Click Apply and then confirm the setting change if a confirmation window pops up. (This works in Windows 7 and 8.) For older Windows versions on laptops, you may need to select Graphics Properties (or a similar line) and then repeat this. The Windows screen rotation option is dependent on your video card. With some models, you'll need to open the graphics card properties to undo the rotation. You should see a line for the graphics adapter when you right click on the Display.

For Macintosh OS, make sure that the System Preferences is closed. Then open it by pressing Option/alt + CMD . Select the line Display. Find the button labeled Rotation: Standard then choose the correct screen orientation.

I hope this helps.

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
