Look at the cord where your monitor plugs into the back of the computer. THAT card is the graphics card. If it plugs directly into the motherboard, then you are not using an external graphics card.

Hp desktop keeps crashing


Agreed not a lot of info, but you may not know what is going on, so s'okay.

There are three main reasons for desktop computer failure;

1) The computer is dirty inside.
Over 80 percent of the personal computers in my shop, suffer from this 'ailment'.

What happens?
The Processor overheats, and turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is because there is a fail safe feature built-in. Keeps the Processor from burning up.

The hardware components inside your desktop computer, (i.e., Processor, motherboard chipset, Ram Memory, graphics chipset, {Integrated graphics}, or graphics card, etc.), are cooled by AIR.

When dust, dirt, hair, food crumbs, spider webs,you name it; clog the cooling system for the computer, the temperature inside goes up tremendously. Especially for the Processor.

[ I just cleaned out an old Dell desktop computer, for a store. Worst one I have seen in 14 years. Had 3/4 of an Inch of hair, dust, dirt, and junk, on the bottom of the computer case. The computer case fans were so clogged with 'dust bunnies', I could NOT see them. The Processor fan was one dust ball, and the Heatsink underneath looked like a solid block. Couldn't see the fins.

Q-tips, a soft small brush, and THREE cans of compressed air for computers, later, the computer is working fine again ]

Start with this, then if it does not sure the problem, state back in a Comment.

ONE:
Unplug the computer from power.

TWO: FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
(Don't know? State in a Comment)

THREE: Post the computer manufacturer NAME, and Model Number. I'll tell you how to open the computer case.

(It's on the back of the computer case, (Tower), next to the Windows product key, OR up on the side of the computer tower.
For an HP, or Compaq computer it is the Product Number.
It is in the white Service Tag, and is P/N )

Will; a radeon hd 5450 work in a gateway 300x desktop


Ummmm, no.

The old Gateway 300X desktop computer has only white PCI slots, to install a graphics card in.

http://pcworld.about.net/news/Jan082003id108534.htm

More info on PCI technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_local_bus

The ATI Radeon HD5450 (No matter who remakes it. VisionTek, Sapphire, etc) uses a PCI-Express x16 slot, on the motherboard,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6671719&CatId=3670

More information on the PCI-Express technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI-Express

From the link above's info on the Gateway 300X, it uses an Intel Pentium 4 at 1.8GHz, and uses old SIMM ram memory. (Single Inline Memory Module)

Not EVEN a gamer computer for today's games, no matter how you upgrade the graphics card.
(Not trying to be harsh, just telling it like it is)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(If you want to upgrade the graphics, use a PCI graphics card, IF there is any open, available PCI slot on the motherboard.

A) BEFORE you install the graphics card, stick that CD that came with the graphics card, into the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive) F-I-R-S-T.
Load the software on the disk.

B) Now turn the computer off normally, then unplug it from power.
Observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

1) Work on a table. DO NOT work on a bed, couch, or directly on a carpet floor. These are HIGH areas of Static.

2) Computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH the metal frame (Unpainted surface) of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

C) Install the graphics card into the computer. Close the computer case, plug into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
{Don't forget. You have to plug the monitor cable into the graphics card now, not into the computer's I/O area }

The computor beeps 3 times when switched on.


The consistent length beeps usually refers to faulty memory, check that your ram is correctly seated.

My compaq presario sr1000 computor won't stop beeping from the inside and it says no signal on the monitor


1 short beep and 1 long beep means its a memory problem.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and replace the memory module.If you have 2 or more modules ,try starting the pc with one.If it fails, try a different single module.

2 short beeps and 1 long beep repeating for 5 times means its a graphics card issue.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and unplug the graphics card, then plug it again.If this doesn't help, try with a different(confirmed working) graphics card.

Ugrade Lenovo 8113 to GeForce 8500GT 512 -Problems?


Not a compatibility issues per se, but their could be a Driver conflict.

Install the Drivers FIRST, then power down, computer unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static precautions, and install the graphics card.

Plug the monitor into the graphics card, plug the computer into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

(The drivers are on the installation CD that comes with the Nvidia GeForce 8500GT graphics card. Just install the CD, and load the software. The drivers will automatically be loaded)

If you install a device first, (Such as a graphics card), Windows will break it's neck trying to find suitable drivers.
Windows will match up one of it's thousands of generic drivers.

Then you come along, and install THE drivers.

Driver conflict.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

If you have already installed the graphics card, then powered the computer up, and installed the drivers, I suggest you do this;

Computer off, and unplugged from power. Open the computer case.
(I prefer to remove all cables to the computer, and lay it on it's side on a clean towel, on a table)

Observe Anti-Static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.

TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, BEFORE you reach inside the computer, or take a device out of it's anti-static bag.

Should you get up in the middle of working on your computer, and leave, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

Remove the GeForce 8500GT.
Plug the monitor into the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard.
(VGA port

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in.
Hold it in for a count of Five seconds.
(And I mean at least Five. Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.
One of which is Integrated Graphics.

Computer case open, cables plugged back in, computer in normal position.
Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

When Windows has fully loaded, go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.

Remove anything you see associated with the GeForce 8500GT.
(DO NOT remove anything in the Windows files. It's a separate section you have to go into anyway, but thought I would warn you in advance, just in case)

Restart the computer. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart)

Once Windows has fully loaded again, install the software off of the CD disk, that comes with the GeForce 8500GT graphics card.

If you are asked to restart your computer - No.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally.
(Start>Turn Off Computer>Turn Off)

Unplug your computer from power. Observe Anti-static precautions. Install the GeForce 8500GT.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card.
Plug the computer into power.
Wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Everything works okay, close the computer case.

GE washer (WHDRR418GWW)(14 MO. OLD)HAS STOPPED AGITATING.WHERE TO LOOK? WHAT TO TRY?


My washer would fill/drain ok but would not agitate or spin. I unplugged the washer and listened for the motor to click. When the motor clicked I plugged the washer back in. Then I opened and closed the lid 10 times. I turned the washer to the drain/spin position and turned it on. The belt moved back and forth several times and then went into a fast spin.
