Question about Computers & Internet
Ok...so I ordered a cheapo computer for the kids to goof on but wanted to make sure it had at least some kind of graphics card so they could play simple games. I ordered this one. HP Compaq dc7800 Desktop PC - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33GHz, 2GB DDR2, 160GB HDD, DVD-ROM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS VC, Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit Here is the issue. Pulled the comp out of the box and plugged it in. GREAT! no display but powered on. Good job guys no drivers installed. Pulled out the card computer boots up fine. Go to get the drivers and uh oh...card must be installed for it Nvidia to recognize it and install. Here's the issue....How do I install the drivers for this card when i cannot see a display with it in my computer?
If the PC boots without the video card, then it has an onboard card. Try checking BIOS and make sure display is set to onboard card. It is a good chance the drivers are already loaded. Even if they are not you should default display settings, Like 256 colors and 800x600 resolution.

2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.

The maximum performance of your video card is limited by the hardware you attach it to. In the display properties of Windows, your highest resolution is 1280x1024 because your monitor is not able to go any higher than this. This resolution is a typical maximum for a 17" monitor. Some 15" can do this, and some 19" can do this. In order to get a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor with a higher native resolution. For example, a nice 24" monitor can only do 1920x1200. The video card can go higher, but it's limited by the monitor. 32bit color is your highest setting - that's 16 million colors. Your video card's 1GB of RAM only determines how much rendered data (usually 3D) it can store and move at any given moment, which is related to but not determined by your screen resolution. That's a very nice card - you should be able to get very good frame rates, color, and performance out of 32bit color and 1280x1024. If you want a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor.

If you are using Dual Core the mother board you are using may have PCI Express Slot. So that you may install Graphics card. Only for particular lower end mother board doesn't have this feature. Any way tell me your motherboard make and model no. e.g., Intel DG31PR, 945GNT, DG41TY etc.,

There is no need to go for another card just keep you pc well ventilated. and try to install some cooling fans in it. but if you want real cooling solutions then just purchase a coolermaster gpu coolers from the shops and i tell in the whole world that, they are the best company in producing CPU and GPU Coolers.

If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
Want to make sure your drivers are in place and no errors have occurred? Simply click start right click on my computer select properties then select device manager scroll to Display Adapters and click on the small "+" you should see the model of your PCI Express graphic card there. If there is a problem with it, a yellow exclamation mark should appear besides it. If you don't see it everything is OK and your card is working properly.
