Sounds like you could have fried something, I'd say if pulling memory all out and putting memory back in doesn't solve the issue you should go into hock and buy a new computer.

I have an. Hp p3017f3 it has black screen.

p3017f3?????????? what is that, a PSU #?
this HP has both a name and model number clearly stated on the service tag, use that or all answer will be wrong
the model we can work with.

the card smacks of Desktop but MY LAPTOP has one too an
elitebook LT has Video GPU card that comes out.
ILL run with desktop for now (a coin toss that)

PC's made for 36 years, now.
modern DT, PC have PCI-e slot the old PC's and AGP slots.
they can not be mixed, ever.
my wild guess, is pc is black screened,
the motor tests good.
so PC side is bad, and someone told you its a VIDEO card.
so what card is there now? it has name and number too.
if non, and is on board, VGA and its bad.
then yes add a new card, to PCI, slot.
but you never told the model of this PC./

AH you meant say, the MOBO has no VGA card
but does have rear edge MOBO VGA jack sure. (called onboard)
so you want to add one,,, sure.
we are not HP so cant help much.
but the real HP site has service page.
in fact HP will nag for this, until you tell it, 10,000 pc made at HP

this is the service tag.
the model is there. MODEL:xxxxxxxxxxx (what is XXXXXXXX)

I have a Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M Motherboard with 2gb ram. I want to disable the onboard graphics card and add another VGA card. Which card should I go for?? Will adding VGA card, show physical memory as 2gb...

Hello you can download the manual, and drivers here:

You can add a graphic card 1 x AGP slot (8x/4x-AGP 3.0 compliant), supports 1.5v display card only.
And Max capacity: Up to 2GB DDR400 RAM by 2 DIMM slots.

ATI/AMD makes very good graphic cards.

Adding a graphic card on the mainboard will not slow the physical memory. It has it`s own ram.

Good luck

Can not make my pc work with dual monitor, one with the DVI and the other one VGA. My PC is a Dell Dimension 4700

You are right,you can not make that work.You need either dvi or vga,on both monitors.You can not mix them,sorry.Check for an empty pci or pcie slot and add another video card.

Your computer will use the shared memory for the VGA unless you disable or lower it.
Memory Upgrade for Acer Aspire E500 Series Computer, the Acer Aspire E500 Series Computer takes the PC2-3200 DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs,400.

LG Flatron 1717S, sits in standby mode, screen black, green power light flashing, wont come on. Sometimes works as normal.and there is no LG customer care in place where I live.....pls help me

Take off the VGA cable from the Graphic card (on PC), do you see anything displayed? Something like SELF DIAGNOSTIC. If yes, there is something wrong with your Graphic Card. Open the case, check the connection to the slot, re-seating and clean it if necessary, do the same thing with the memory card.
Let's see the result n good luck

MEMORY/RAM problem, system won't acknowledge both slots of memory

You might have on-board VGA card which take 8 Mb (shared) in memory taken from extended memory card.
My suggestion, use exactly similar memory card ( same PC clock, either 400/533/667/etc. If this won't work, try to clean the memory slots with brush.

Beeping sound at boot up, screen showing auto save and not booting up

remove the memory chip, clean it, insert it back in the slot again. "be carefull" dont wrongly place the memory chip else it will burn, there r two clips on each end of the slot, and in the middle a separator. hope this will help. if u have a graphic card in it remove it, clean it, and insert it back on the slot. if doesnt work then replace the memory chip or graphic card. now if u have two or three memory chips in the slot, then test one by one. remove all, then place one, then turn on pc see if the display come, by this way u will know if the chips are good or not, then try the others.

Memory stick reader

It sounds like to me that either the slot is damaged, dirty or you may have the wrong kind of media for that slot. If you have a can of dust off (compressed air) you may want to blow out the dust in the slot. After doing this, try your memory stick again. If it still doesn't work but it has in the past for that slot you may want to consider replacing the card reader. Sometimes the pins get dislodged or bent inside. Good luck, let me know how it turns out. Thanks...
