> not sure if have one installed.

One what?

Take a look at the connectors on the 2 cards.

Is one connector a VGA "video-output" connector?
If so, it's a video-card.

Is one connector a pair of sockets, with 4 gold wires per socket?
If so, it's a modem.

Is one connector a single socket, with 8 gold wires?
If so, it's a network adapter.

Is one connector an oval "female", with 25 holes?
If so, it's a parallel-port adapter, for an older-style printer.

Is one connector a thin slot (or a pair of thin slots) ?
If so, it's a USB adapter, for connecting USB devices.

Is one connector a standard coax cable (such as on the back of your TV) ?
If so, it's a TV-input card, to turn your computer into a TV-receiver.

How to install video card?

Hello Ruel

I have step by step procedure about installing video card.
1. Turn off your PC, unplug it, and remove your computer's case. "Your computer should have either a PCI-Express 16x or AGP slot for your card. The card won't fit into the wrong slot, so you can't go wrong. But don't confuse your computer's thin memory slots for its video card slot."
2. With a small screwdriver, remove the screw holding in the old card or the metal cover. "Don't lose that screw! You need it to secure the new card in place."
3. If you're replacing an old card, pull it up and out of the slot (left). "If you're not replacing an old card, remove the metal cover from the back of your computer (right)."
4. Hold the card by its edges and position it over the correct slot. "The edge with the shiny metal bracket should face toward the back of your computer. (That shiny bracket replaces the cover, if you removed one.)"
5. Line up the tabs and notches on the card's bottom with the notches in the slot. Push the card slowly into the slot. "You may need to rock the card back and forth gently. When the card pops in, you can feel it come to rest. Don't force it!"
6. If the video slot has it, bend out the flexible plastic retaining clip that fits over a tab on the end of the video card. "When the card fits into the slot, release the clip, letting it hold the card in place."
7. Secure the card in the slot with the screw you removed in Step 3, then plug the computer back in, turn it on, and see whether Windows recognizes and installs the card. "Windows usually recognizes newly installed cards and sets them up to work correctly."
8. If everything's working, put your PC's cover back on. "If something goes wrong, turn off your computer, unplug it, and make sure you've seated the card correctly."

Be careful not to touch any chips. Touch as little as possible on the video card or inside your machine.
If possible, do the installation in an non-carpeted area to avoid static.
If possible, use the slot with the most open space around it.
If you do not understand these instructions or you lack good manual dexterity, have a qualified technician install the video card for you.

Best Regards

Catalog of Motherboard AOC AX45-V say that this motherboard support 3 memory cards of 2 types up to 3 GB, DDR 266 or DDR 333. If I use DDR266 can be installed in any slot, but I f I use DDR 333 can be...

either can be installed in any of the 3 slots, there is no specific spot for any. It's never guaranteed it will work specially if you deal with different type of memory modules.

What are the three expansion bus slots that are found on the mainboard?

  1. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16) (Note 4)
  2. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8) (Note 4)
  3. 3 x PCI Express x1 slot (All PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
  4. 2 x PCI slots
(Note 1) Due to Windows 32-bit operating system limitation, when more than 4 GB of physical memory is installed, the actual memory size displayed will be less than 4 GB.
(Note 2) The DVI-D port does not support D-Sub connector by adapter.
(Note 3) Simultaneous output for DVI-D and HDMI is not supported.
(Note 4) For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot. The PCIEX8 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16 slot. When PCIEX8 is populated with a PCI Express graphics card, the PCIEX16 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.
(Note 5) Whether the CPU/system fan speed control function is supported will depend on the CPU/system cooler you install.
(Note 6) Available functions in EasyTune may differ by motherboard model.

How do I install an additional RAM card

The IBM NetVista A22p has 3 memory expansion slots. A memory bank is a group of memory expansion sockets, a bank must be completely filled with memory modules of the same size and type in order for the system to recognize and address the memory. i.e. :

*2 sockets (2 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 2 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.

*3 sockets (3 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 3 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.

*4 sockets (2 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 4 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

*8 sockets (4 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 8 memory slots. These are divided into 4 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

*12 sockets (3 banks of 4) This indicates that there are 12 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of four memory slots. So you must add memory four pieces at a time (and they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.
