Installing RAM and a new graphics card..

Hello, I have just purchased new RAM and a new Graphics Card for my computer via the internet. I am simply curious if it is safe for me to install them myself or if I should bring it in them in to Best Buy to have them installed. Also an approximated cost and approximated time would be nice. Thank you! :)

Heres what ya do to replace it yourself:

1. Unplug everything
2. Remove and jewwrely, watches, etc..
3. Set computer on a level table
4. Before opening the case, touch metal on the case for 15 seconds.
5. remove the screws, Take out old videocard and be carefull to lift up on the latch if it has one.
6. Take out old RAM by removing each latch on both sides of the RAM.
7. Store videocard & RAM in an antistatic bag if you have one. A cardboard box works too.
8. put in new videocard vertically where old one was and place back screws.
9. Put in the RAM. (May go in hard) Put in the RAM vertically and make sure the latches are secure.
10. Put back on case cover.
11. Turn on computer after plugging everything back in.
12. Done and hopefully it works.

It will cost about $20 - $50 for best buy to do this and will take about 30mins either way.

Having someone at best buy do it is a better choice if you have never done it before but its your call.

Using Windows XP with a terrible, terrible video card. Will not go above 640x480 resolution. Only has 8mb video ram and Windows won't let me raise past that. Was wondering if there was any way to force...


if windows does not have the correct driver for the graphics card the resolution may be stuck at a "safe" setting, try downloading and installing a graphics driver, if the graphics card is very old and its maximum resolution actually is 640x480 there is no way other than replacing the card to achieve a higher resolution

How do i install extra ram


If you are referring to installing extra video RAM then I'm afraid to tell you that it is impossible. When you purchase a Graphics card it has a fixed amount of video memory and it cannot be increased.

I haved downloaded a game called call of duty modern warfare 2 but my video card cant handle it


Hello donayre_jose, You have a really weak graphics card outdated back 2004, you aren't going to be able to play any of the new games not even low settings. I recommend that you purchase new computer with Windows 7.

Good Luck!

Your graphics card was overheating and might be toast. You can try and Purchase a custom Graphic Card cooler for your graphics card. If you decide to purchase a new Graphics card go for an ASUS or XFX one.

Game not working please help


The game that you are trying to play most likely asks for more than 128mb of RAM for a graphics card. Try upgrading your card to increase the performance of your computer and gameplay.

Trying to install Geforce Verto 8400 GS card on Dell GX260 and cannot get computer to start in safe mode when card is in computer! HELP!!


Seems like the graphics card simply isn't compatible with your motherboard either. However, have you tried installing the drivers for the new card with the old one still in, then inserting the new one, and booting up? That's the only thing I can think of that you didn't try yet...

Computer and video card memory/ram


Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.

Nvidia geforce FX 5200 having poblems booting pc....


as your primary pc now has a working graphics card . I would guess your graphics card is fried in all honesty there is really no hope in repairing it especially for the cost of one of those cards, if you are simply using your second pc for non graphic intensive apps then I am sure you could find an ol pci grpahics card down the local dump for next to nothing hope this helps.
