I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've been having a lot of problems with my graphics card, Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. I can't seem to enable aero or play 3D games like Minecraft. I tried to download other graphics cards, but they don't seem to install correctly or just won't work or show up at all. Can someone recommend me a good graphics card that can work? Thanks

A:Help: Need a good Graphics Card for Windows 7 32bit?

You are talking video card DRIVER, you need the current one for your system, VGA is the default driver that you would also see if running 7 in safe mode, it is HORRIBLE for anything but testing.

So, I suggest you visit (or for gpu-z) and download and run SPECCY to determine your actual video card, and acquire the driver from the web site of the brand in question, or the PC/laptop's manufacterer's site.

Even if it's just an on the motherboard GPU, those programs should find it.

A:Good compatible video Card

You can't upgrade your video card, most laptops including yours, do not allow the graphics card to be upgraded.

But you may be able to try an updated driver and maybe it'll work, the 915 doesn't have hardware Vertex Shades but it can be emulated in software/drivers.

A:Whats a Good Graphics card for Gaming and using Adobe Software-Graphics


I've done a lot of research on this because I built a new system back in August. While I am not much of a gamer, I needed a very good NLE machine. However, the card I chose is quite the gamer card but had all the extras I needed to run Adobe Video Collection.

I picked the Connect 3D Radeon X850XT Platinum card from Tigerdirect. At the time it was $350 but I know it's cheaper now. It's got everything you need for a demanding application like Premiere Pro 1.5 and its related software. 256MB of GDDR3 memory and dual DVI outs. I highly recommend this card. I've been using it since the start of September with Adobe and it's great.

Your CPU and memory are a bit more of an important factor with rendering and burning though. My new PC has a 3.4Ghz P4 and 2GB of 533Mhz dual channel RAM. It's an exceptional increase in speed and productivity over my old 2.4Ghz and 512 Rambus.

Welcome to TSG!

What is your old card?
If it is PCI-E 2.0 then yes, but be sure to put it in the pci-e 2.0 slot and not the 3.0 slot.

From the Amazon picture it looks like it has onboard graphics as well?
If so, just use that to set up Windows.

A:which graphics card is compatible

You need a PCIe x16 graphics card. If you want one with any power, you will also need to replace the PSU with a 400 Watt unit that has POCIe power connectors six-pin and 8-pin.  Your desktop PC is recent enough tso that will alow you can use modern video cards that support UEFI BIOS. Go to the Can I Run it? website to get recommendations on video cards. seems to be a popular online vendor for the US and source for video cards and PSU.

A:Compatible Graphics Card, Anyone?

According to the specs you have a PCI Express x16 slot available so you should be able to put a new card into it. The possible limiting factors that you need to consider are:

Current Power Supply
You may well need to upgrade the power supply (PSU) because the one that comes with the machine is probably only adequate to power the components it came with. A new graphics card will more than likely increase the load on the PSU, you may be lucky and it works for a short while but it would fail eventually and could damage other components when it does (i.e. CPU and/or motherboard and/or RAM etc.). Also, HP do sometimes use non standard sized PSU's which would mean you will have to get the replacement direct from HP!

Case size and space
The motherboard is a Micro-ATX so I would assume the case is fairly small, you may be limited for physical space inside, so may be limited to getting slimline cards. This also may cause a problem with a PSU upgrade as a new PSU may come with a lot of extra wiring that you (personally) may not need, this wiring needs to be stored inside the case which may limit airflow and cooling.

So, with all that in mind, proabably the best way to advice on cards is to tell us what your budget is and go from there. A decent PSU upgrade will eat a chunk of that budget. It's niot an impossible upgrade we/you just need to make sure we get all the information to ensure we advice correctly.

A:Graphics card compatible with my pc ?

The 220 watt power supply in that system might be a problem. NVidia recommends a 300 watt power supply for the GT610 although in a very basic system it would likely work with less as the card itself only uses 29 watts at maximum. Aside from that it's a low profile card and PCI-Express should those are correct.

Hi Guys,
I am looking for a graphics card for my 3 yr old computer. I'd like to get something that will work in Conjunction w/ my GPU and not simply cancel it out. I know they have them. Just don't know if my board will do this. Another thing I need to make sure it is compatible w/ my PCI. And finally when the card says ddr 3 or 5 is it compatible since my board only takes ddr 2 mem sticks? Here is the link for my board:

Please don't tell me to get a new board or system since mine is old. I know that and getting a new system right now isn't an option.


A:compatible graphics card that will work w/ my gpu?

The board doesn't have Hybrid Crossfire, which would be needed for what you're willing to do. Not that you actually can run them in conjunction with Hybrid Crossfire either, you've got a bit of a wrong vision of it... When onboard works "alongst" with a discrete card, it just means the discrete card goes to a very low power sleep when no 3D apps are running and the onboard handles desktop usage.
(G)DDR3/5/whatever is not a compatibility issue, neither are PCI versions - PCI-E 16x cards, let them be 2.0, 2.1 or whatever will work on your board.
Power supply quality and true output capacity is. What's your current power supply model? Look at its side for some hints if you don't know straight off the top of your head. "*** Watts" is not enough, a real model is needed to determine any useful facts about the unit.

It sounds like your graphics card gradually went from a working state to being broken. Check if the fan is spinnning, it might have stopped while you were playing and the card might have overheated. If that's the case, it might have caused some permanent damages to your card. I've only joined the forum for 2 or 3 days and i've read several posts about GPU fans stopping due to various reasons such as dust.

If it isn't the graphics card, then it has to be another component that gradually died

I doubt it is your BIOS, since it didn't change when your computer went from fully functional to completely useless.

If you wanna stick with Nvidia (the way its meant to be played ) My card, the 9400 GT is just what you are looking for, cheap ( i guess thats what you want) awesome, and playing those high-end games. 1gb memory of its own, and a 550 mhz Gpu.
If however, you want to cross over to ATI, they got some awesome cards too, like the 4670 which is also cheap and good (not as good, but good)

Hope this helps!

A:Need Compatible Graphics Card for New Dell

just remember that if you install a different card, you well invalidate your warranty..

personally I've never worried about such things, but some people take warranties very seriously..

- if you fill in your system specs fully, we would have a better idea of what your current system will take..

- some of the more advanced cards may well need a beefier PSU, for example..

A:Which graphics card is compatible with ASUS P5S800-VM

Unfortunately, that motherboard only has an AGP slot, so your videocard upgrade will be very limited.

Here is one of the cheaper units for AGP, but you must also ensure your case has adequate cooling (at least one case fan aside from the power supply fan is recommended) and also ensure you have a fairly beefy power supply (350 Watt or greater, 400W+ preferred).

A:Is My Graphics Card compatible for my friends computer?

I don't see why it wouldn't work, as long as it will fit in the case. It may be a little bit challenging with your friend's current power supply, depending on the model of your Radeon card. A 7870 will probably use more power than a 7850, for example.

But the card should be compatible, none-the-less. I would give it a try and see if it works with that PSU.

Yeah, It looks like it should work, it is PCI-E X16, which is also on your motherboard, so that means it will fit. But since your motherboard is AMD, I reccomend a Card from ATI or AMD, in my experience, An amd card works better on an amd motherboard.

HP doesn't list what it has for a power supply here,

Compaq Presario SR1630NX Desktop PC Product Specifications - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

but going on how HP likes to put in a power supply that is just powerful enough to run the system as it is out of the box, I'm guessing that it will be something in the 250-300W range. If that is what it is (only way to find out is pop the side off and see what it shows on the label), then a new power supply is also going to be needed.

With that in mind, how much are you looking to spend?

I'm buying my daughter a new computer. I have limited money so I'm thinking referbished. I have a couple of Dells. Both choices have AMD Athlon processors. One is 64 Duel Core, the other is x2 processor. I'm not sure if one is better or both the same. I learned a lot from reading the forum on this sight but I'm still a litttle confused. Both of the computers have integrated nvidia Quadro nvs 210s graphics. She mainly uses it for internet (UTube video) and Sims. She plays sims 2, and just got Sims 3 but her old computer is not capable. Sims 3 requirements name many nvidia Ge Force, Radian (several) and intel GMA 3 & 4 series. The Quadro is not included, is that because it's to new or because Quadro is actually for business application?

A:Solved: Graphics card & processor compatible with Sims 3?

Hi cinnamon555,

According to the offcial Nvidia Quadro geforce 210 website: , Sims3 are well supported:
Modern games and 3D applications demand more graphics performance than ever before and Intel integrated graphics simply aren’t good enough. With 16 processing cores, the GeForce 210 delivers over 10x the performance1 of Intel integrated solutions! If you want to play popular mainstream games like World of Warcraft, Spore or Sims3, the GeForce 210 is an essential addition to your PC.Click to expand...

Hope it helps.

The issue that it seems you're having is that you've got a Radeon 7000 card and are trying to install drivers for the radeon 9800, which is a different card altogether. The 7000 only supports up to catalyst driver version 6.1.1, while the 9800 supports up to version 7.5. The drivers for the 9800 won't run the 7000 card.

If you want more performance out of your laptop, then I suggest that you upgrade the card to something better than it's current card. You can get graphic cards at most local stores (like best buy, walmart etc.) and at a ton of places online.

A:Is the ATI Radeon 9550 / X1050 graphics card compatible with a Dell Vostro 200?

If the card will fit in the box it'll probably work for you. When I looked up Dell Vostro 200 they were built into two kinds of cases. There was one type built in a slim case and the other type built in a mini case. The mini case is much wider than the slim case. It looks like both types of cases sport motherboards with X16 PCI-E slots for adding an aftermarket video card. Trouble will arise if your 9550/X1050 video card has an AGP connector instead of a PCI-E connector, or you have a full size video card and a slim case.

A:What is a good Graphics Card?

Hello AmazingMSF! Firstly welcome to TSF! Now, depending on your budget you can buy a high end graphics card such as the "Nvidia GeForce 550ti" at a price of 114-120 USD. This card would be guaranteed to play any game at a very rewarding fps (60-100+). Now, if you are looking for something cheaper may I recommend the "Nvidia GT 430" it is low costly and runs all modern games (GW2, Diablo 3, etc) at anywhere between 40-70+ FPS. This is a low costing 60 dollars. (All benchmarks based off games max performance)

Once you buy the graphics card, your motherboard will have a PCIe slot where you insert the videocard as if it was a game boy game and install the drivers from Nvidias home page.

A:A good HP to buy and a graphics card to put in

assuming that your not interested in building your own machine, that will work if you put a graphics card in it. the X4 620 has decent performance gaming, it lags a bit due to the lack of L3 cache, but for most it will do well when paired with a decent graphics card....which leads me to my next point. The gt9500 GT is an entry level card, it will do okay with games like WOW, but if you are wanting to play games like Far cry 2,crysis,stalker etc at any kind of resolution or detail, the 9500 GT will fall way short. also if you do find the 9500 GT to be the card you want, see if you can save a few dollars and get the 512 version. 1 gb of ram on a low end card is absolutely worthless, and in some cases can actually slow performance a bit.

Do you think that is good enough to run games such as Age of Empires 3 or the new Command & Conquer? If you think you know any better cards out there for AGP, please let me know.

I also read somewhere that the Radeon X1950 is the best AGP card out, is this true?

If so you will need a low profile card, and there isn't a whole lot to choose from. Assuming the specs are right it has an AGP slot, so you're looking at something like this, - ECS N6200A-256DZ GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit DDR2 AGP 8X Low Profile Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

There is also a ATI HD 3450 in AGP, but I don't think the 180W power supply (unless you have changed it) is going to be up to running it.

I'm thinking of getting a new low end graphics card for an outdated system of mine. their website XFX Graphics card GeForce 4000 PCI. It says that it has some sort of extra support for multi-monitor.
My plan is to use it in my computer until I buy my new computer (with ) this christmas. Then I'll move the XFX card into the new system for use as a second monitor. I know NVIDIA is good, but I've never heard of XFX Graphics Cards. This card is also 64M (my current one is only 32M).
It's only $60 but I thought I would check in here to see if anyone had any experience with XFX cards, or the multi-monitor support it referred to on the box (though I can't find it on the website).

A:xfx graphics card any good?

XFX is crap - we use to use these where I worked and man did they fail bad and they are cheap.

Also, PCI cards offer really poor performance compared to AGP cards - for gaming they simply aren't worth the investment. As for reusing it for dual monitors later, most new video cards support multiple monitors and you don't have to worry about driver issues with two video cards.

hi to all

I am just wondering if you knew if the gf 7100 gs is any good and would it play most games out now with ease on high settings??

Thanks Jase

Heres a link for the graphics card >>

A:Is this graphics card any good....

No. It's a rubbish card for gaming and is mostly suited for HTPCs and the like. The 7300GT or even the 7600GT\GS would be a better bet.

I am looking for a really good graphics card but the highest I will go is $100. I am only 16 and without a job so I can't afford those high end cards. All I need is a card that can play Halo, Need for speed Underground 2, Nascar Thunder 2004, Half Life 2 with all mods, and Call of Duty. To see my system specifications just look at my profile. My only requirement is no less than 128mb and my mother board (mobo, thats funny) supports 4x and 8x. I also want a fairly good Manufacture, good costomer support and all the helpfull stuff. Also you can look at this to see my computer: OO
It's the canada site, but I got my computer at the US site.

I have an ATI Radeon 9500 PRO 128 MB Graphics Card installed in my system of P4 2.4 GHZ, 512 MB RAM, 845G chipset. I am finding it a bit slow to meet my video editing requirements and am thinking of upgrading. Is it advisable to go for a new mobo and processor with same AGP 8x Graphics card (choice limited to mobo with AGP slot with 865 or 875 chipset) or directly go for 915/925 PCI express cards. I am on low budget and hence trying for a value for money solution. Will you please help.

A:Graphics Card AGP 8X is it still good?

Are you sure it is the vid card that is being the bottleneck?
For video editing it is the CPU that does all the work.

A:Hi, I need some help. Is this a good graphics card?

in terms of your existing set-up, that's a difficult question to answer as it depends on a number of variables..

sure, it's a decent card, especially when compared to your existing FX5200, but you'd need to get a more powerful PSU - as your current 300w model won't cope with the extra load..

it also requires PCiE, and without full details of your motherboard, it's hard to tell if it is a suitable replacement..

I am thinking of buying a new motherboard, Processor, ram and video card. Would this video card be worth it because i want to play medium-high end games

Please respond soon

That card will probably only run games on low to medium settings. What resolution is your monitor?

i mainly want ti for musci production and some games ( gta san an + doom3) not a total fram rate freek but would like somthing that runs things smoothly



A:Is this a good graphics card for me

I don't think a 9550 will run doom 3 acceptably, even on low settings, it apparantly gets about 18fps at low quality mode, which is too slow to be really playable.

A card like an agp nvidia 6200 will be much better in doom3, it should be getting about 40fps on high settings.

Other cards to consider, ati 9600pro, 9600xt, 9800, 9800pro.

This is much better for a similar price.

Hey, i want to know if my graphics card is good enough to run shogun 2, if it isnt which graphics card would you recommend (can't be too expensive).
Heres my graphics card : EVGA Geforce 8600 GT 1024 Mbs.
Heres my MOBO: Gigabyte - GA-MA785GM-US2H


A:Is my graphics card good enough for Shogun 2?

Yep you should be good. You might not be able to run all the settings on high for graphics but you should get reasonable frame rates.
If have at least 250-350 budget you could get a very good video card and that would help even more. Especially with all the great games that should be coming out through out 2012.

Hello all of you,

I'm actually seeking for a good graphic card but I don't really know what to choose. I want to play lot of games like Crysis, Assassin's Creed, Dirt and other good games meaning also good graphics. I don't want to buy on that I will need to change shortly due to the fact one or more games cannot be played on it.

You can get access to my system specs. I have a PCI Express x16 Port on my mobo.

Thanks in advance for all your help

A:Seeking a good graphics card

Your total budget, and your PSU will define what you should get.

However, any very good graphics card is going to be hitting the limit of performance vs. your CPU with your setup, so I wouldn't go too mad.

Its also very important (read essential) that we know what the total wattage of your PSU is, and preferably also the manufacturer of it. Your current PSU may be incapable of powering even a budget GPU currently.

It is also beneficial to know what resolution you currently game at, what resolution you would like to play at (if you wish to change it) and what sort of settings you currently use (e.g. low, medium etc) as certain graphics cards are better at different resolutions than others due to the target audience they're marketed for.

I am using Nvidia Geforce 7025/nforce 630a, which is very old. 95% of games doesn't work properly on it. I have to play games in less resolution(below 800*640). Suggest me good graphics card below 2000rs or $45
. I can increase my budget upto $60.

processor:amd athlon II X2 255 @3.10ghz
Motherboard:GA- m68mt s2p am3.

Though my processor and motherboard is relatively low end, i want to play atleast fifa 11 or game released in 2011. Please help? Thanks!

A:Suggest good graphics card?

You'll struggle massively with such a low budget.
Latest games require new tech, and don't tend ti scale down well to older hardware.
Maybe the second hand market is best, might pick up an AMD 5650 or 5750 for around that price. Probably a big ask though.

Find $100 and your in a better position, as buying a cheaper card now will mean as soon as tech moves on you'll be in the same position as you are now.

I'm looking for a new graphics card for my Gateway computer. It currently has the integrated Graphics Media Accelerator 950 which just won't cut it for games anymore. I'm wondering if anybody knows of a good, fairly cheap (under $150) graphics card, preferably a Nvidia GeForce. I was looking at the GeForce 8800gt, but it's just too expensive. Anyone know of a graphics card that would still run games well (Battlefield 1943; Call of Duty), but that won't break the bank? Thanks!

A:Solved: Looking for good graphics card?

If you want to stick with nVidia, there are bunches of sub-$150 GTS 250 cards around. Personally, I'd buy a Radeon 5750, but performance is pretty close either way.
