There should be a model number on the board somewhere. A search of the model number would be better. You may have to remove a fan to see the chipset, then go to the Asus website and look up the video cards that use the same chipset. Graphics Cards ASUS

Did you try to play games for a long time, with the stock cooler. i'm amazed about all the gammer which are still using stockcooling and the teperature stays warm for 5 hours. And if i say they need to watercool it, just like you cpu and memory, because high temps degrease 1. the lifespan of your gear ( especially mb with cheap capacitors) enemoursly, but they overclock the graphiccard at the same time , while the effectivity decreases , caused by too warm components, they want also higher ratings from the card by overclocking. That's why i never by second hand cards or mb's or cpu's. Does the card still work; if not, does it smell burning? and did it broke, while gaming?????

Check very well that the connection of the connectors is right: push the videocard lightly onto the motherboard, with a little wriggling. Maybe remove and clean connectors with alcohol and then reput it in. Also check the powerline connector very well. if this is of no help, I am afraid it is broken.

Hi , I suggest to check for any thermal issues including condition of the video card fan / heat sinks ie dust , If supported you can run a LINUX disk like Ubuntu in live / try mode If video works ok , then most likely a Windows environment incl hardware conflict or virus / driver corruption issue , but if not then most likely a video card hardware issue like bad card cooling fan or excessive dust - thermal shedding issue or card bios/chipset fault If a likely software issue then uninstall and then reinstall the video card Consult ASUS or Nvidia support The procedure is something like this Onboard video support ? yes uninstall the video card driver and any video vendor configuration applets Uninstall video card in device manager if still present. Shut down and remove mains power cable remove the hardware video card , (using anti static electricity procedures) Attach onboard video to display Power up and enter and configure BIOS setup if required, ie 1st seek onboard video Bootup to Windows Install the onboard video device using Windows plug&play default driver executed during booting Restart Confirm working ok Update the chipset driver (inf) if applicable, restart Shutdown Reinstall the hardware video card Attach to display Reconfig BIOS setup if required Start to install default driver Install video driver / update from card default using a known good driver whose setup file has been previously downloaded restart and test Hope this helps

Yes, your mainboard supports up to 2GB of DDR memory. That does not change if you add a graphic card. Windows XP 32 bit can actually address up to 4 GB of total memory including CD, hard drives, and video cache. Note: Your mainboard only supports up to 2 GB, but newer boards can support much more memory, up to 16GB of RAM.If you could install 4 GB of RAM in your machine, it would still work, but windows would only address as much RAM as it can use; the rest would go unused, so it would probably show up as 3.5 GB of RAM then.

If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low. Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768
