SOURCE: hp pavilion slimline s5000 series whats the

There are 14 different versions in the s5000 series of slimline desktop computers,
{From s5200z to the s5285t}

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

Some are Intel processor based, some are AMD processor based.
The Power Supply wattage differs also. Seems it goes from 220 Watts to 300 Watts.

All versions have a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot, though.

[ It is based on the PCI-Express 1.1 version technology
A graphics card based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology will work.
Why?

Because PCI-Express 2.0 is backward compatible with PCI-Express 1.1

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

"PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards. PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v2.0 will work with the other being v1.1 or v1.0."

Means;
1) Motherboards based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology, are compatible with a PCI-Express graphics card that is based on the older PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

2) PCI-Express graphics cards are also generally compatible, if they operate at the smaller bandwidth of PCI-Express 1.1

Since the slower technology of PCI-Express 1.1 is what is available on your motherboard, a graphics card based on PCI-Express 2.0 will not operate at full capability.

{Graphics cards based on the new PCI-Express 2.1 technology will work also }

Will you notice?
No ]

What is the limit for a graphics card?
The sky.

Two problems though.
A) The Power Supply
B) The available room inside the computer case for a graphics card.


1) Power Supply:
According to HP Support, and looking at the specifications for the s5200z, and s5285t, the top of the line graphics card is an Nvidia GT220.

This is due to the low power consumption. (And probably reduced cost from Nvidia)

Based on price, and performance however, the GT220 is a less than choice.

Using a Zotac version as an example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=348736&CatId=3669

Stream Processors = 48

You can have the fastest Core Clock, and Memory Clock, plus all kinds of graphics ram memory, but if you do not have enough Stream Processors, your graphics card will be less than adequate.

Consider Stream Processors as the 'Information Highway'. The path that graphics information takes from the Processor to the Graphics Card, and back.

If you do not have enough stream processors it's like a road being worked on.
Traffic is redirected into just one lane. Everything slows down.
There is a 'Bottleneck'.

Most decent graphics cards that are better than a GT220, require a Power Supply with 400 Watts, or greater.
.
The size and shape of the Power Supply's case, makes it hard to find a replacement that is greater than 300 Watts.

2) Available room for a graphics card (Height) inside the computer case:

With the Slimline case you have to purchase graphics cards that are Low-Profile.
{Low Height}

It isn't so much the length that you need to be concerned with, as it is the height of the graphics card.
The length of a graphics card goes from the back of the computer towards the front.
The height of a graphics card goes from side to side inside the computer case.

Average width inside a Slimline case seems to be around 4 inches.

You have to take into consideration; how far the motherboard is supported off of the support plate inside the computer case, and when inserted how high does the graphics card sit in the PCI-Express x16 expansion slot.
4 inches is Not enough room.

If it were I, I would remove all internal components, and install them in a cheap, decent, Mid-tower computer case. There is more room inside the case for a taller graphics card, and the case will use the common ATX style of Power Supply. A 600 Watt ATX power supply is pretty economical.

{There is also more room inside for air flow. Air is the cooling medium for a desktop computer. (Unless it's a high-end gamer computer. Dry Ice, Nitrogen, Refrigerant etc. have been used )

More air flow means cooler hardware components inside the computer.
Result? Longer life, more reliable }

Then I would use an ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics card, (And a decent 600 Watt power supply)

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=465512&CatId=3669

{A decent mid-tower computer case averages around $50 }

Why my Nikon Coolpix L26 isnt uploading to computer via usb to PC


When you connect the USB cable from the camera to the PC, the camera should shut down. If it doesn't perhaps your cable is defect. Or one of the connectors, from the camera or from the PC.
When the cable works on another PC (or Laptop) you can assume the cable is good. But then the USB connector in the PC could be not connected, or the USB controller in the PC is not working correct.
Sure you did install the Nikon software on the PC to?

Replacing the SD card slot door cover Nikon D60? The SD card slot cover/ door is broken. Can I replace it myself? Where can I buy the part? Could someone give me step by step instructions on how to replace...


Hi Sasha - New Nikon repair parts are not available in the marketplace. You'll find repair parts that are offered for sale are used. The used products may be very good - and in some cases practically new - but you'll never know for sure. A battery door and other non-electronic parts should be pretty easy to determine if they have been abused or damaged upon arrival. Electronic parts are going to be a crapshoot.

I was quoted $270 to replace a sensor in my old D70 last year. I found one on eBay for $55. I have no idea how many times the sensor was used, but fortunately it seems to work fine. The work to replace it was tedious and required a very steady hand and some small specialty tools. Replacing the battery door will probably be nowhere near as involved - but I don't know your level of ability, either. You should ask anyone that is selling this part for written instructions or a link to instructions or video that details the replacement process. Read or watch the directions and determine if it is in your skill set. If not, you'll never go wrong sending the camera to Nikon for repair. It will only cost you a bit more - but it will be done right and your camera will not incur additional damage during dis-assembly and reassembly.

I hope this helped and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Dear Readers, i have a Nikon camera and it works great. I have had it for a year now, but last week it got dropped, and the battery door will not stay closed. NOTE: There is nothing actually wrong with...


I would use some epoxy.
Put a big drop where the plastic part is missing, wait until it hardens and then take a razor blade and shape it the same size of the missing latching part.

Epoxy should be strong enough to hold your door in place.
