SOURCE: Is the T690 compatible with an Nvidia Geforce 8600

Yes, it appears the PC has a PCI-e graphics slot.

And it does not need an extra power cord in it so you should be fine with that card.

A list of the compatible PCI-Express 16X Graphics cards for a PCI-Express...


Having trouble finding out which graphics card will work with your PCI-Express motherboard? Here is a list all PCI-Express graphics cards for AMD/ATI Radeon. This list is in descending order. (The top graphics cards from each manufacturer are more recent, have greater memory and are faster while the bottom are older, have less momory and are slower).

If your Motherboard supports PCI-Express X16 then here is a list of compatible ATI/AMD Radeon Cards.
AMD Radeon 6000 Series - (AMD Radeon HD 6870 and AMD Radeon HD 6850)
ATI Radeon 5000 Series - (ATI Radeon HD 5970, ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyfinity 6, ATI Radeon HD 5870, ATI Radeon HD 5850, ATI Radeon HD 5830, ATI Radeon HD 5770, ATI Radeon HD 5750, ATI Radeon HD 5670, ATI Radeon HD 5570, ATI Radeon HD 5870, ATI Radeon HD 5550 and ATI Radeon HD 5450)

UPGRADE of CPU and graphics card in HP Pavillion 9000?


The HP Pavilion dv97072ea Notebook PC?

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3308945&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Nope.
Doesn't use the MXM technology, with using a separate graphics ->adapter card.
The graphics chipset (GPU) is soldered directly to the motherboard. (GPU on a small circuit board, that is)
It's Integrated Graphics,

http://www.ascendtech.us/hp-434659-001-dv9000-laptop-motherboard_i_mbhp434659001lm.aspx

Scroll the page down to the larger photos.

The Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 mobile graphics chipset, is the darker OD green circuit board. (Generally speaking)
In the views you are looking at the TOP of the motherboard.

You see the white rectangular Processor socket, with the square hole in the middle.
Next to it is a green square circuit board, and next to that is the darker, Olive Drab green square circuit board, that is the Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 graphics chipset.
{Circuit board and GPU, is referred to now as the graphics chipset.
That is why I stated - Generally speaking, above }

[GPU,

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

You can see the Nvidia GeForce GO7600T chipset, and circuit board, more clearly here,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-new-nVIDIA-GeForce-GF-GO7600T-N-B1-GPU-BGA-IC-Chipset-with-Balls-/190698089722?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c667decfa

It's mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array.

To explain the Ball Grid Array surface mount, simply;

In the photo of the chipset in the Ebay link above, you are looking at a green square circuit board, with an Nvidia 7600 GO, mobile graphics chipset, in the middle. You are looking at a TOP view.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_Go_7_.28Go_7xxx.29_series

The GPU ->Nvidia GeForce GO 7600, is mounted to the green circuit board.
The bottom of the green circuit board has Solder Balls.

The Solder Balls take the place of Contact Pins.
(Contact pins, such as on the bottom of an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket)

On the motherboard are matching Copper Pads.
(The copper pads are coated with a gold plating)

The Nvidia graphics chipset is set down on the motherboard, with the Solder Balls lining up on the matching Copper Pads.
Heat is then applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.

This action makes the solder balls melt, and solders the Nvidia GeForce GO 7600 to the copper pads.
(Which in turn solders it to the motherboard)

This demonstration of a BGA Rework Station, shows you more about the above technique,

http://www.ersa.com/art-ir-pl-650-346-1472.html

Go down towards the bottom of the page, and click on the Red -
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video. (5 minutes)

Just for edification;
If it indeed did use the MXM technology, and a graphics adapter card for a laptop, that is based on the Nvidia GeForce GO7600 GPU, it would look like this, and plug into an interface, (Connector) on the motherboard,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/nVIDIA-GeForce-Go7600-Go7600-N-A2-G73M-DD2-256MB-MXM-II-VGA-Card-35G1P5310-10-/330758557353?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4d02bf0ea9

(There is also a model with 128MB of graphics memory, besides the 256MB model shown above)

I want to switch out AM 5641-u5630A graphics card for a GeForce GT 220 so that I can run two monitors. Where is the AM 5641-u5630A graphic card located? Do I plug the GT 220 into the brown female...


In this desktop the video card has been part of the motherboard so you don't remove it - you insert the new card in the brown PCI-E 16x connector, connect the monitor to it then you go in the BIOS and disable the onboard one.

I would like to upgrade my emachines t6528 pc with geforce 6100 chipset, to someting like NVIDIA GeForce series 7800, 7900, 7950 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800 or better Can it be done? If so, is it just...


First you need to make sure that motherboard has a PCI-Express slot

If it has that then you will be able to upgrade to any card you want willing your power supply has enough wattage to fuel the card

Most higher end video cards need 450W power supply's to operate without problems

If you meet both of those requirements then your good to go :)

Video card


The card may be faulty. I have a 8600 GT over there on the bookcase, it has the same problem, going to send it to warranty repairs. I'd suggest you return the card / have it checked in another pc.
