I wanted to know whether an AGP card which has a DDR2 or DDR3 graphics memory is compatible with a HP D530 SFF (which only supports DDR main memory since it has an Intel 865G chipset - ICH5)


The on-board graphics memory is separate from the system memory and should have no impact.

NOTE: You DO need to make sure the card will fit into the machine. From what I see your box will only take low-profile cards. So at least your AGP card needs to be low-profile to fit into the unit.

Here is a link to a number of different manuals for the unit.

Hi, I have an Acer X275 SFF PC [ps.vame3.210] I need to install a graphics card with HDMI and VGA but whilst the PC has a PCI-E slot it needs to have a very slim graphics card as the fan or heat sinks on...


I believe Radeon has a decent line of Thin Format graphics cards but I'm not sure about having PCI-E format. Most of the newer cards on the market are AGP and AGP II slotted. I haven't looked at them in the past year since I got out of the business but I used Radeon in the Thin Bodies I worked on and built at that time.

So I have a HP Compaq d530 SFF PC Desktop problem. I checked out the HP tech specifications: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11632_div/11632_div.html#Technical Specifications - Graphics Is...


"Graphics, is there an upper limit on how much you can upgrade a video card?"

Yes, and no gammon_ben.

Your computer uses an AGP graphics card.
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards. (1.5 volt)

Goes in the brown AGP slot on the motherboard above the three white PCI slots.

The best AGP graphics cards are the AGP 8X ones.

Sky's the limit, just depends on your pocketbook.

Yes, so far.


Primer:
When using Integrated Graphics, the graphics chipset on the motherboard borrows some of the System Resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program being ran.
(Windows XP is one example of an O/S. Operating System)

Let's use an intensive graphics program for an example, a Game, and Windows XP.

The Processor and Ram Memory is supporting Windows.

They're also supporting the characters of the game, the shading of the game, and the background of the game, just to name a few characteristics.

Due to the resources needed from the system resources, (Processor and Ram Memory), from the game, the game will lag, or freeze up.

Using a graphics card frees up the system resources.
A graphics card has it's own Processor (GPU), and Ram Memory. (Graphics memory)
(GPU = Graphics Processing Unit)

However, the Processor still has to utilize the information from the graphics card. Even though it, and the Ram Memory have been freed up, there is a limit on how much information a Processor can handle at one time.

Your Processor may be an Intel Celeron, or Pentium 4.
These are single core processors, and have their limitations.

HOWEVER one more time, you are just speaking of operating a 40 inch widescreen (?) monitor with 1080p.
A really decent AGP graphics card can handle that with no sweat, and watching videos.
Some of the newer intensive games may be a problem.

Here is an example of a decent AGP 8X graphics card, that is Low Profile. (Low in height)

No Ben, there is no jumper for this on the motherboard.

The method is to go into BIOS Setup, and change it to AGP.
(Should be the default factory setting however, IF you have an AGP graphics card installed)

For your computer, BIOS Setup is referred to as
Computer Setup Utilities. It is accessed by pressing the F10 key at a certain time.

1) Computer off. Turn the computer on. As SOON as the monitor light turns green, start tapping the F10 key. (Tap in 2 second intervals)

If you do not press the F10 key in time, the computer will go on to load Windows. Shut the computer down normally. Try again.

When you are in Computer Setup, select your language, press the Enter key.
(Use the appropriate arrow key to select. You cannot use your mouse anymore when in Computer Setup)

You will see Four headings.
File, Storage, Security, and Advanced.
Use the Left or Right arrow key to select Advanced
Press the Enter key.

In the menu headings select PCI VGA Configuration .
(Use the appropriate arrow key)
Press the Enter key.

It will only display if you have an AGP graphics card installed. (Multiple PCI video adapters)

It will not display if you only have Integrated Graphics, and no AGP graphics card.
(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as Onboard.
ON-Board. Meaning ON the motherBoard)

Use the appropriate arrow key to highlight AGP. Press the Enter key.
Press the F10 key. (Save changes)

Now things may differ.
Some BIOS Setup utilities, (Computer Setup Utility for your computer), have two different methods for selecting YES.

You may see a Y/N, or a YES/NO

Use the appropriate arrow key, and highlight YES, if it shows a YES/NO

Press the y key if it shows a Y/N.
(It is Not a capital Y. The capital Y is shown for clarity. Press the lower case y on your keyboard)

Now press the Enter key.

Your computer will now restart with the changes you have made.

NOTE*
If by some chance your computer did not come with an AGP graphics card, and you are installing one, you MUST load the drivers for the graphics card.

Drivers are small software 'pieces', that allow the computer to 'communicate' with the device.

Drivers come on a CD disk provided with the graphic card. The drivers SHOULD be installed BEFORE the graphics card is installed.

Why?
Because as soon as a new device is installed, and the computer is turned on, Windows breaks it's neck to find appropriate drivers.

IF THE drivers are not already installed, Windows will chose from it's thousands of generic drivers, and match one accordingly.

If you install the drivers AFTER you have installed the graphics card, you will get a driver Conflict.

Crude illustration:
Windows: 'Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?'

Your graphics will look like something for the Flintstones.
If you do not have the driver installation CD disk, you will need to download the drivers from HP Support,
IF they are available.

If your computer Came with a Restoration Disk, AND your computer has an AGP graphics card, the drivers are on that disk.

The disk is installed in your optical drive, and when asked you chose REPAIR. (Or non-destructive installation)

Should you need more information, or want me to look to see if graphics drivers are available, post in a Comment.

Hp compaq d530 400 watt power supply


You will not find a power supply for this case. Why would you want to upgrade such an old computer? Get yourself a new one with amply power for your needs. If you are one that upgrades regularly, get a standard case with standard components that can be upgraded without the hassle of replacing proprietary form-factor compnents.

ATI Radeon 9250 PCI card not recognised.


Make sure the slot isn't disabled either by jumper settings or in the bios, and the card is securely inserted in the slot. If these aren't the case, you have yourself a bad card, or a bad slot.

Desktop Casings are lower enough that can't be closed when inserting Cards like your Graphics card. Change your desktop casing to Tower Casing so you can freely install your Graphics card to the graphics card of your motherboard.
