Question about HP DC663A (64 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Second Life According to second life, my Intel graphic card, which is installed on my HP Pavillion e4900 laptop is not compatible and therefore does not support Second Life. What kind of impact would getting one of the two graphic cards that are compatible (ATI Radeon 8500 or higher, or, nVidia Geforce 2 or higher) have on how my computer operates? And what's the average cost of these cards? Thank tiy

Well, alot of factors come into play. First get an ATI 9700, ther less than hundred now, get it from a Computer store that actually has staff that know about computers, dont go to best buy or someplace like that, they only stock the better more expensive ones.

Make sure you get the right one, I.E. AGP or PCI, whichever one your PC is. The graphics card will make your P.C. run better when it comes to rendering graphics so you will see improvement on Games in the way of smoothness and detail. Picture viewing and editing will improve.

If you dont know anything about computers, or enough to get the right hardware, then find an Altek computer store or a comp USA or some kind of store that deals mostly with computers. take your whole unit and go in with it and ask a rep, say, " I need a Video card that fits this machine that meets or exceeds the minimum requirements of this program. Take the program box with you also.

Be prepared for them trying to sell you more than you need, get something thats better than the minimum requirements for the program so that way your sure to not have performanc issues.

Can I install HD video graphic in my PC Hp 2000 notebook RAM 3GB T3500 @2.10GHz mobile Intel (R)45 Chipset family therefore I want to know how can I install the HD graphic driver


In most laptops you can't replace anything but the RAM so your out of luck for installing a new graphics card, although Intel HD graphics are integrated in the cpu so its hardwired in and can't be changed, but for most basic tasks it will be alright.

Does anyone know how to use proxy servers to get past a parental blocking site for Second life?


Hmm don't you have to be at least 18 to play SecondLife?
You can use a proxy server but I doubt that will bypass the parental block on the SL app.

Nvidia drivers display not surported


What graphics card do you have ? (Model). According to that specific laptop specs it is fitted with a Intel graphics adapter and not nvidia so the nvidia drivers will state that there is no supported device found because there is a Intel on-board adapter. I don't think nfs Rivals will work with that on-board Intel graphics adapter sorry.

I have 4870 installed. i want to activate Second


Running two ATI cards is CrossFire not SLI, and no, you cannot run those two cards together. I am assuming you are reffering the the Video game Second life. The 4870 is still a beast of a card, I find it next to impossible it wont run the game. Make sure you have the latest CCC driver from game.amd.ati.com

Hi i hope you gan hellp me. I am trying to paly second life on line and i can not get it on my new labtop its a asus X5DC Series and it has a SIS672 mirage 3+ in it but it is still not working can you...


your video card is not supported for second life. secondlife requires an ATI or Nvidia opengl compatible card. second life does not support most mobile cards and does not have any support for the SIS chipset that i am aware of.
