Please suggest a graphics card for me. I have the integrated AMD Radion R7 that came with the motherboard when I purchased the desktop a couple of years ago. Max resolution appears to be 1600x1200.  I want to upgrade my monitors (two) and the graphics card to better support my Adobe Lightfoot work.  I do not and never will do any gaming.  The desktop's power supply is 300W. I'd like to keep the card price under $100. I have not picked out monitors so I don't know what my target resolution will be, but 1600x1200 is too low. Thanks.

I have an HP Pavilion 550-a114 and I was wondering if it would be at all possible to upgrade the graphics card to something a tad more powerful. The current graphics card is an AMD Radeon R5, and I was hoping to upgrade to a Radeon R7 360 ( this be possible, or is there even a way to upgrade with my model?  

A:Can I upgrade my HP Pavilion's graphics card?

Can you verify that this is your actual unit?  Have you looked inside? According to HP, it's has an external 65W power supply, similiar to a laptop brick.  The motherboard is a Mini -ITX, with  1 PCI Express half-length mini card socket (like a laptop). The CPU is soldered onto the board, and the Integrated graphics: AMD Radeon R5 Series is embedded into the chip.  This motherboard does not have a PCIE slot on any type, and a PCIEx16 is required for the R7 card.

Hello, I've wanted to upgrade my PC's GFX card for a very long time and just learned that it IS in fact possible to upgrade, but if the card is too powerful I will need to upgrade everything else as well. I have never attempted upgrading a PC before, but My dv6 has a GeForce GT 320M GPU card and I would like to upgrade because I want to play games without having a large amount of lag. Is it possible for me to upgrade to a higher GPU without having to replace everything else inside of my computer?And which of these Cards would I be able to upgrade to?(again I am very new to this): Thank you for listening

A:HP Pavilion Dv6 Graphics Card Upgrade help

Hate to burst your bubble but no it is not possible to upgrade. Not sure where you got that information. The video chip in the laptop is soldered to the motherboard. There is no place to put a video "card". I also don't think there is a dv6 with a GT 320M or that such is a "thing".

A:Pavilion p6674y Graphics card upgrade

@Maggietron?, welcome to the forum. Newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The motherboard can't be upgraded to UEFI.  The last video cards that didn't require UEFI were the GTX 660/670's. I suggest contacting EVGA's Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) for help with choosing the best card for your system.  They are the experts on their products.   Also, they can tell you the power requirements of the card that they recommend. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Can I upgrade Nvidia graphics card to latest cards or supported one from Nvidia.

The reason to change the graphics card is, it is over heating and crossing the 100 degree celsius which reports in black screen and suddenly crashes.

So anyone can tell me which is the suitable graphics card that will support HP Pavilion P6270IN Desktop .
What will be the upgrade process with new graphics card?

Please suggest.

Below is the Product information:
Link : HP Pavilion P6270IN Desktops
Prod: AU930AA#ACJ

Hardware Information:
Motherboard: IPIEL-LA3 (Eureka3)
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT220
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500

A:How to upgrade Graphics card of HP Pavilion p6270in Desktop PC

You have a PCI-e slot on your motherboard so theoretically you can fit any of the latest cards. It's not that simple though, for starters you only have a 300W PSU which will limit you to the most basic cards and is probably why a GT220 is fitted. You'd need at least a 450W PSU to run a decent card.
You only have a dual core CPU too which will bottleneck any of the latest nVidia cards.
Lastly is case size, some of today's cards are absolutely massive and the chances are most would be too big for your case.

One thing to try to get your GPU temperatures down is to remove the side panel from the case (with the power switched off and every external cable unplugged) and give the machine a good clean out with a soft brush and a can of compressed air. Dust build up can easily block the heatsink on the GPU (as well as other components) which will stop it from cooling properly.
Are you using this machine for gaming by any chance?

I need help in order to get this grahic hardware in because I can't put the grahics card in first then download this because the computer immediatly wants to run on that graphics card even though the built in grahics card in the motherboard is still active. Any tips on how to fix this?

A:Installing a new graphics card on a Pavilion P6-2026

Hi: Did you first uninstall the onboard Intel graphics adapter, and check the uninstall driver box in the device manager before installing your new graphics card? If not, I suggest you do. The Intel driver may be interfering with the nvidia driver when it tries to install. The  Intel HD graphics adapter is disabled in the BIOS automatically after you install the new video card, so it is not active, but the if the driver is still there, it may be the cause of your dilemma. After you uninstall the Intel graphics adapter and driver in the device manager, shut down the PC (do not restart as prompted), and install your new video card.

There are three concerns that I have about the card: 1) it states that it will work with only 300W.  I have found these claims have not been correct.  2) the card is extremely long.  There may not be enough space for it without some problems. You can measure from the Back I/O plate to the front of the case. and 3) newer cards after the GT 640 series require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  Your computer was released on September 24, 2009. My advice is to choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your computer and needs.  I like EVGA (1-888-881-3842).  Their Tech Support is very helpful and knowledgeable. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Hey guys,

I have a run of the mill HP slimline desktop which i use as my main pc. I have recently stuck in some more ram and am now looking for a new graphics card in order to play a few games more smoother.

At the mo its running the onboard nvidia geforce 6150 le but am having trouble finding a card to fit in the case as it's so small.

A:Can you replace the graphics card from hp pavilion 17e073ed

Hi: There are no removable, replaceable, upgradable graphics 'cards' in your notebook. The graphics is all part of the motherboard and in order to upgrade the graphics, you would have to see if there is a motherboard listed in the maintenance and service guide for your notebook that has better graphics. Replacing the motherboard would be a costly and labor intensive project.

My new HP laptop isn't using its Nvidia graphics card when playing games, and instead is using the default Intel card. I can tell as it is affecting gameplay and causing massive frame drops and lag on games that a laptop of this standard should have no issue playing. The laptop recognises the Nvidia card and is shown on the system info. I have updated all the drivers. I have also set the properties on the Nvidia control panel to use the high performance processor instead of being automatic.I have tried disabling the Intel card in device manager but this caused the games to play even worse as was using the Windows default.I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Nvidia driver None of this has made any difference. I am wondering if there is a way to force the computer to use the Nvidia card? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I want to upgrade my graphics card with one that will run 4K. I bought and installed a GEForce GTX 980 (was on special) but the PC wouldn't boot with this installed. I played around with it for a while, with no success. I contacted the shop where I bought the card from and they said, bring it in, we'll sort it. I took it to them and they had the same result. They then said that HP put a block/code in the BIOS to stop third party peripherals from functioning. I've not been able to verify if this is in fact the case. If it is, does HP have a prefered "vendor" of graphics cards they "allow" to run? If not, what card/s will work with this PC? To save ppl looking up the hardware specs:Motherboard is a Cleveland-GL8Graphics Card is a AMD Radeon HD 6850

I sent this laptop in for repair awhile ago and I just noticed that my computer doesn't recognize my dedicated NVIDIA 650m graphics card. It's not avalible in device manager or anything. It's as if it doesn't exist. I've started doing some work where I really need it and I'm stuck with the integrated graphics. I've ensured every drive is up to date, I've tried downloading drivers from NVIDIA's website, and I've tried downloading HP's posted Windows 8 drivers (there's nothing for WIndows 10). Nothing has worked so far.

A:Video Card Upgrade for Pavilion HPE h8-1380t

Hi, I have the same system. We have a non-EFI legacy BIOS. The 1060 is never going to initialize because it requires a UEFI BIOS. We cannot update our systems to a UEFI BIOS. You cannot run a UEFI graphics card such as an Nvidia 700, 900, or 1000 series products in your PC. The Nvidia 600 series cards are the last legacy cards made by Nvidia. You could consider a switchable BIOS AMD graphics's card. Unfortunately, comparable AMD cards are longer and require more power. For example, a Radeon 8 GB R9 390x is 12.1 inches long (which will probably not fit in your chassis) and the card alone requires 375 watts! Please see all available AMD options at You may as well build a new system if you are going to change the motherboard. Jay

I want something that's worth the upgrade from my 285 as I play all the newest games and I would like stable FPS in games like Bad Company 2.

I'm really interested to know how much gain in performance I would get from upgrading from my 285 to this card MSI GeForce GTX 570 OC Twin FrozR III Power Edition 1280MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card [N570GTXTWINFROZRIIIPOWEREDITION/OC]

I would appreciate any advice given to me regarding this upgrade and if my system components are capable.

My current power supply: Eclipse Computers - Product Details (I know its a cheap brand but my friend recommended it to me back in the day so I got it...)

Thank you

800w will be sufficient.

If you'd like to save some money, I'd suggest the 560Ti, it -rivals- the 570 but still lacks just a little (from a scale of 10, it'd be 7/10 against 8/10)
Really depends if your wallet is stuffed with bills

If you run a 1920x1080 monitor or any dual-triple, then the extra VRAM would do nice- that's if you go dual SLi or triple.

I would imagine disabling UEFI mode would be the same thing as entering Legacy mode.

Is this a desktop or laptop?

If this is a laptop, did you check to see if the card can be replace? Most laptops have integrated cards that can't be replaced.

Have you checked to see if your card is replaceable?

Hello, i am looking to upgrade my old PC's GPU as well as CPU.

The motherboard does have the required slots for a new graphics card. Right now it has an integrated one ( ATI Radeon 2100 ) as well as a weak one core processor (amd sempron 140). The motherboard is FOXCONN A74ML-K. What are some good, but rather cheap graphics cards as well as a processor which will fit my motherboard, both for the price of £120 combined? I would like to use this computer for light gaming, i dont expect ultra settings on every game, just want them to be playable. And can this motherboard work with any processor and graphics cards?

Thanks for suggestions
