Question about HP DT PAVILION P6140f DESKTOP PC

1 Answer

I have a HP P6140f. The only upgrade I have made was to the power supply and I added a graphics card (Radeon HD5770). It has been running stable for some time. I did a Bios update which syopped at a BSOD. I immediately tried starting up the machine but I just get a repeating long beep in groupds of two with a second or two interval in between. I already tried doing a cmos reset using the jumpers. I also tried a soft reset by draining the power by pressing the power button with no power cord. I removed all additional hardware components (All RAM but 1 DIMM, Video Card) Still getting the same beep. Any Suggestions?

SOURCE: HP D530 Video card upgrade

If the HP D530 has an AGP slot, which I think it does, then yes you can install the Radeon HD 4350 card.
Make sure you have the correct driver for the video card.
Go to this site for more info:

SOURCE: HP pavillion a800n pc wont' boot up..I get nothing...

After much trial-and-error, I finally figured out the solution for this common issue with certain HP Pavillion models. It turns out to be a design flaw with the front-panel memory card reader. Somehow the card reader's firmware gets scrambled, and it prevents the computer from booting. You can test this on your machine by temporarily disconnecting the card reader cable at the motherboard header. Voila - I'll bet you $1 that your computer will now boot!

The solution is buried deep inside this HP tech support document. The card reader firmware needs to be reset.

Here\'s how to fix it once and for all:

1) With the computer power unplugged (duh), open up the case & disconnect the card reader cable at the card reader itself - NOT the end that connects to the motherboard header. Make sure the cable end is not touching any metal components before proceeding to step 2 (another duh).

2) With the cable still disconnected, fire up the computer. The tech support doc says to let it boot into Windows and stay there for about 5 minutes.

3) Shut the computer down and reconnect the cable to the card reader.

4) Turn your computer back on - your memory card reader will work and, most importantly, the computer will no longer hang at POST!

I suspect that when you fire up the computer without the cable connected, the card reader is designed to reset its firmware by grounding out through the case - sort of like a CMOS Reset jumper on a motherboard.

I hope this solution is helpful to others.

best,
JohnB

SOURCE: "Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.

The Nvidia GeForce 6150 is Integrated Graphics. Also known as 'On-Board'.
Integrated Graphics 'borrows' some of the computers system resources. The processor and ram memory.

Your computer needs all of these system resources to run the Operating System, and also a program like an intensive graphics game.

Solution? Install a dedicated graphics card. A graphics card has it's own processor. GPU
(Graphics Processing Unit, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU)
It also has it's own ram memory. Graphics ram memory.

This frees up the computers system resources.
Recommendation? Install a graphics card. Get away from the Integrated Graphics.
You need to know what expansion slot your motherboard has for a graphics card. There is the PCI expansion slot, the AGP expansion slot, and the PCI Express x16 expansion slot, that is used for a graphics card. Hopefully yours is a PCI Express x16 slot.

The PCI Express x1 slot, is NOT used for a graphics card. Just thought I would mention that.

I concour, that using an Nvidia GeForce graphics card in the 9 Series, is a good idea. It's a 'Best Bang for the Buck' type of graphics card, at the moment. Perhaps the GeForce 9800GT, or the GeForce 9800GTX?
Make SURE, your power supply has enough wattage, and enough Amp's on the 12 volt power rail, to support it.

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.

Trouble with install second video card HD 5450 to emachines t6532


Unclear of your statement. (More like run-on sentence)

Problem heading statement reads,
"trouble with install second video card HD5450 TO eMachines T6532"

Need clarification

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

(Click on photo for a better image)


Has one long white PCI Express x16 slot. (Expansion Slot)
Only uses one graphics card at a time, will Not use two.

[Graphics card / Video card. Same/same]

Therefore I surmise you are not referring to adding a Second graphics card, but are referring to;

A) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.

Or,

B) This is the second ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.
Had one before. Removed it, and are using a new one.

Or,

C) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.
It is not an ATI Radeon HD5450 like the old one is.

Know this;
1) You can ONLY use the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics,
OR the graphics card.
You CANNOT use both.

When using a graphics card the monitor is plugged into it.
You cannot plug into the onboard graphics of the motherboard, with it installed in the computer.

Said differently;
With the graphics card physically installed in the computer, you cannot just unplug the monitor from the graphics card; and plug it into the OnBoard graphics of the motherboard.

[Also; Computer on, you CANNOT unplug a monitor, and plug it back in.
This = NO ]


2) Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device is the graphics card.
The version of Windows operating system was not stated.

Did you install the software from the Installation Disk? (CD/DVD)
Has the drivers on it, and the user interface software.
User interface software for an ATI graphics card, is Catalyst Control Center.

(Just to note; I'm using a Powercolor Radeon HD5450 graphics card, right now.
I'm using dual monitors.

HP 2009M - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an RCA L26HD31 HDTV as the main monitor. (26 inch HDTV)
They work GREAT! ]

(It is an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card just like yours, IF yours has 1GB of graphics memory.

Doesn't matter what graphics card manufacturer, makes that HD5450, it is still an ATI (AMD) design.

Powercolor, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond Multimedia, Mickey Mouse, or Goofy. It is still an ATI graphics card )

The ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, has to have a MINIMUM power requirement of 350 Watts.
Does your power supply have 350 Watts or more?

If it is the original power supply, the answer is NO.

Back then power supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the true maximum rated wattage.
Why?

Sold more power supplies.

Power supply rated at 250 Watts?
Nope.
More like 60 to 70 percent of that.

Divide 250 by 10.
= 25.
Take that times 6. = 150 Watts (60 percent)
Times 7 = 175 Watts (70 percent)

Would like your opening statements clarified.

Hello there!

Advantage is fairly possible.But the main thing that blocks people from getting full performance is,the power supply of your pc.

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

Have a Dell 531 Inspiron 4400+ Desktop with a Nvidia GEForce 6150SE. Would like to upgrade graphics card???


hello, according to wiki your Dell 531 is same as 530 except for the nvidia chipset.
ATI Radeon HD 4670 is recommended for this system without adding too much of extra burdun on the power supply.
rest also depends on how much are you looking to invest in a graphic card. below is link for newegg's graphic section:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=40000048&Description=pci%20express%20video%20card&name=Desktop%20Graphics%20%2f%20Video%20Cards

after you have the card follow this sequence(unless ofcourse you know excatly what to do)
1 go in BIOS and change graphic card priority from onboard first to PCI express.
2. turn off system install the new card, switch the vga/dvi cable to the new card and startup the system.
3. upgrade drivers with provided cd.

let me know if you have any questions.
good luck

What can i upgrade to from an ATI radeon


Reasonably price varies from opionon to opionon, now if you're talking about a desktop yes, it is very easy to upgrade. You just have to make sure you have a decent power supply, and room in the case to support a better video card. Video cards run from $50 all the way up to $1000+ so its depending on what you want.

ATI Radeon 1650x Problem in Installation


This one is simple, the computer's stock powersupply which is probally at about 250 or 180 watts isnt generatiing enough power to the Vcard. Basically you need to purchase a higher watt power supply, you can get a decent 400+ watt for under 40 dollars almost anywhere.  Just a simple swap will do the trick.

you can upgrade your processor to a 3200+ or a 3600+ but the problem is availability and it should be socket 754 pin compatible...

Comparable cards to the ATI All In Wonder 9700 Pro 128 MB


Hello there. The Radeon 9700 Pro was a high end graphics card in its time. Today the latest Radeon cards are 3870X2, 3870 and 3850 models. The 3850, while mid-high end range, would be a substantial upgrade from the Radeon 9700 Pro.

If you are planning to upgrade your system, make sure you choose the correct type of card (AGP/PCI-E) and that your current system has a good enough power supply to power a new upgrade.

Hope this helps.

Adding a graphics card


You should be OK with the graphics card as long as you choose a PCI-e version. If you are confident enough to change the power supply and the RAM you are OK to do a graphics card. If your power supply is at least 350W you should be OK. The HP website does not specify what the power supply is so I cant advise on this. The graphics you mention is not graphics but the chipset on the motherboard. If you seat the graphics card securely without too much force and then power up your pc and load the drivers from the disk which comes with the card you should have no problems.
