My son saved up and bought a Gateway SX2855-UB12P. We have upgraded to 8MB of RAM and now are looking to upgrade the video card which currently is a PCI Express x16 Graphics. Given his machine is a en


Hope you mean upgraded ram to 8 GB 8 mb is not much ram to run a computer.

To upgrade your computer's graphics card, unfortunately you can't just simply purchase a card and install it to your computer. Before purchasing a card, you must first confirm what is compatible with your motherboard. Graphics cards use either AGP or PCI Express technology. Many older computers use AGP. AGP cards can vary in version and bandwidth, whereas PCI Express cards can vary based on their lane . Moreover, the card itself is not your only consideration when looking to upgrade your computer's graphics. You must also consider the strength of your computer's power supply as well, since most newer cards use a lot of power. Download, install and run SiSoftware's Sandra (see link Below) to find out information on your motherboard. http://download.cnet.com/SiSoftware-Sandra/3000-2086_4-10556571.html Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model." Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website. If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website. Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model. Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications. Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express." If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x). If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16). Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply." Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A"). Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance. Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot. AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa. Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot. Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard. A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU. Hope this helps.

Can I change the graphics card on a Compaq Presario CQ71-402sa Laptop?


The use of multiple video cards is possible thanks to SLI by Nvidia and CrossfireX by ATI, two proprietary technologies created for that purpose.


The technology has matured and is now a viable option for anyone looking to build a computer capable of running the most graphically intense games at extremely high resolutions.

Both SLI and CrossfireX have requirements that must be met to use two video cards.


Depending on your motherboard, some computers may be compatible with dual video cards and some may not.


When purchasing a new video card, check for compatibility issues. In some cases, purchasing two of the same video card can ensure compatibility.



Open the computer case by unscrewing the screws at the rear of it and sliding or swinging the case door open. Find the PCI Express slots.


They are located directly below the processor. If no video cards are already installed, it might be necessary to move other PCI cards, power leads and other case clutter out of the way to fully reveal the PCI slots.


It will also be necessary to remove the PCI slot blanking plates that keep the back of the case sealed when no card is installed.

They are secured by one screw and will slide or swing out once that screw is removed.


Line up the long, thin connectors on each card with the PCI Express slot and firmly press down on the card. If the card is properly inserted there will be little play in it.


The PCI Express slots will also have a snap that secures the video cards.

This snap would have to be opened to remove any prior PCI Express card.


It should at this point be fully closed. Secure the cards using the blanking plate screw removed in step 1.


Link the cards together using the proper SLI or CrossfireX connection.

Both systems typically use an internal bridge that comes packaged with the video cards.


This bridge connects to the outside edge of each card inside the case, linking them together. However, some older versions of SLI and Crossfire use different methods of connecting.


Refer to the user manual for more details about these connection methods.

Connect the video cards to the power supply using the appropriate PCI Express power connector, which is a small black connector with six pins.


If your power supply does not have enough PCI Express power connectors to connect to both video cards, use Molex-to-PCI Express adapters instead.

A Molex connector is white or black and has four pins.


The adapter has two Molex connectors on one end and a PCI Express connector on the opposite end, thus allowing the Molex connectors to power a video card.


Activate the dual card setup on the motherboard, if required.

Motherboards have various ways of handling this, and not all of them require it.


Those that do require it usually need a jumper to be re-positioned or a DIP switch to be activated.

The manual of the motherboard will detail the specific steps required to complete this process.


Install the drivers for the video cards using either the installation disc supplied with them or the installer available for download from the websites of Nvidia and ATI.


Run the installer and follow the onscreen instructions.

The process will probably require multiple reboots.


Once the installation is complete, open the driver software.

Nvidia's is called nForce and ATI's is called the Catalyst Control Center.

Enable the dual card setup by activating the option in the driver software.


This is done by clicking on a check box in the software under the CrossfireX or SLI menu in the driver software. The computer's screen will likely flash or blink while the setting is activated.

hope this helps

I have a ASRock CONROE1333-DVI/H R2 motherboard and i wanted to know if i could use a graphics card that requires a pci express 2.0 slot


Absolutely!

The AsRock Conroe1333-DVI/H R2 mobo uses PCI-Express 1.1 technology. It's in the Intel 945G motherboard chipset.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=CONROE1333-DVI/H

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

Scroll down to bottom of chart. 945G made in 2005.

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

Scroll down to History and revisions.
PCI Express 2.0 -> 15 January 2007

A graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, will work on a motherboard based on the PCI express 1.1 technology.

Why?

Because PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You just won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice? NO

PCI Express 1.0a, and PCI Express 1.1, operate with a per-lane data rate of 250MegaBytes per Second. (250MB/s)
Transfer rate of 2.5Gigabits per Second. (2.5Gb/s)

PCI Express 2.0 operates with a 500MB/s per-lane data rate.
Transfer rate of 5.0Gb/s.

Make SURE you have Windows running, then install the software for the graphic card -> F-I-R-S-T, then physically install the graphics card.
(Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions -> FOLLOWED)

The computer will not use the graphics cards software, UNTIL the graphics card is installed.
It will keep on using the integrated graphics on the motherboard, until the graphics card is installed.

Means get the motherboard going first, use it's integrated graphics.
Install software for graphics card, and then Physically install the graphics card.
(Don't forget to attach the monitor cable to the graphics card, lol!)

I have Wolfdale 1333-D667 motherboard which Supports Dual Channel DDR2 667/533 memory. Can i upgrade it with a DDR3 Graphics card?


atlantisshak, you can use a graphics card with ANY graphics ram memory.

A graphics card has it's own Processor, and graphics memory.

Doesn't depend on the system resources, ( Processor and Ram Memory)

GPU = Graphics Processing Unit, the graphics card's processor,

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

Doesn't matter if you use a graphics card, that has GDDR3, or GDDR4, or GDDR5, graphics ram memory.

I do however, recommend using a PCI Express graphics card based on the 2.0 technology. (PCI Express 2.0), and NOT the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

Could have problems.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

joecoolvette

{ ALSO;
Make SURE you,
1) Windows running on the computer, install the graphics card's Installation Disk. (CD disk)

AFTER loading the graphics card's 'Control Panel', and drivers,
DO NOT RESTART.

Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen. Shut the computer down normally.

THEN unplug from power, AND follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Physically install the graphics card. Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Close the computer case.

Plug the computer into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

IF you do not, you stand the chance of driver conflict.
To explain;

When a device (Such as this graphics card), is installed on a computer, Windows 'break it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's
THOUSANDS of generic, one size fits all, drivers.

This = NO.
Could cause a driver conflict.

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

[ If you install the graphics card FIRST, THE drivers are NOT there.
Then you go back, and do install the drivers, there may be a driver conflict ]

Drivers:
Small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Some O/S examples are Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
The graphics card is an example of a device.

[ When you put the Installation Disk in the optical drive's tray, and close it, the graphics card's software will come up. Go for the option with the 'Control Panel', AND drivers.

Example; For an ATI Radeon graphics card, the 'Control Panel' is ATI Cataylst Control Center ]

Dear,
you have pci express slot that supports high graphic card. You can buy a high graphic vga card but it relates with your power supply too. Check your power supply wattage and then buy the vga card accordingly because high graphic vga card require more power from supply.

There are alot of pci slot supported card in the market.

best of luck!

What video card are compatable with SR1620NX ? The graphics card is not working right anymore and I need a compatable video card.


A PCI Express graphics card.

Doesn't matter if the PCI Express graphics card uses the PCI Express 2.0 technology, or the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

The PCI Express graphics card, will insert into the PCI Express x16 expansion slot on the motherboard.


Supporting data;

1) View of the motherboard in an illustration,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00378480&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1127351

Scroll down the page to view the motherboard illustration.

A) Looking at the illustration, view the BATT. (CMOS Battery)

To the left of the CMOS Battery (BATT) are three white PCI slots.
Above them is a longer expansion slot. This is the PCI Express x16 slot.

Above it is marked > PCIX16X1 (PCI x16 times 1 slot)


NOTE* When installing the PCI Express graphics card, lift up gently on the Lock 'handle'.
It looks as though you should push down on it, but you need to lift up on it instead.


Also go above the motherboard illustration, and read to the right of the heading > Internal Connectors

In the list you will see > One PCI Express x16 graphics slot.


WHEN installing a graphics card, ALWAYS install the software from the CD disk provided, First!

Computer on, and Windows running, insert the graphics card's Installation disk, (CD) into the optical drive tray.
Install the software by following the directions.

THEN shut the computer down normally, and unplug the computer from power.
OBSERVE Anti-Static Precautions.
Install the graphics card.
Close the computer case, and plug the monitor into the graphics card.

Turn the computer on.

When you install a device (Such as a graphics card for example), Windows will try to find compatible drivers.
IF, THE driver is not installed First, Windows will match up one of it's thousands of generic drivers.

This = No.

You want THE driver installed first, so that Windows will find it, and Not try to match on of it's generic drivers.

NOTE 2*
It DOESN'T MATTER what graphics ram memory the graphics card has.
The graphics card's Processor and Ram Memory operates independent of the system resources.

Example:
The computer uses DDR Sdram ram memory.
The graphics card uses GDDR5 graphics ram memory.

It will work just fine.

NOTE 3*
It does NOT matter if your computer uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology, and the graphics card uses the PCI Express 2.0, or 2.1 technology.

PCI Express 2.0, and 2.1 technology is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Will you get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0, or 2.1 graphics card?
NO

Will you notice?
NO


What you need to look at it, is how much power will the graphics card use. Look at the system requirements for the graphics card, and be sure your Power Supply has enough power for that graphics card.

Also, IF, the graphics card requires additional power cables from the Power Supply, make sure your Power Supply has the required power cable, or power cables.
IF the Power Supply does not, use a power adapter cable.


NOTE 4*
Graphics card manufacturer's base the power needed for the graphics card, Not just on the graphics card itself, but on an entire computer system, AND the graphics card.

The graphics card manufacturers use a test computer system, that is a powerful computer system.
Gamer motherboard, Dual Core, or Quad Core processor, 4GB of ram memory, and at least two harddrives, and two optical drives, PLUS the graphics card in question.

This complete computer system uses a LOT more power than just the graphics card by itself.

There isn't a single graphics card out there, that uses more than 150 Watts by itself.

Recommendations for a graphics card that is compatible, with a Compaq Presario SR1620nx desktop computer?

Budget to medium:
Good enough to watch videos, older games, and some newer games.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4675217&CatId=3670

Medium:
Higher level games, and large screen monitors,

Black Screen after installing new NVidia 9400GT


Put the old card back in, remove the old drivers and restart it in VGA mode.
You don't say what operating system you use, but XP & Vista you should be able to hit F8 before the windows splash screen to select VGA mode or Safe Mode.
Once you do that you should be able to put the new card in and start it in standard VGA mode then load the new drivers.
