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.)

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.

Hello guys  So I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre  M92p Tower (machine type 2992).  I recently obtained a MSI R7 250 2GD3 OC and am currently trying to install it. I followed the manual and removed the proper back plates and opened the living mechanism. However  when i try to fit the card in it is just a couple millimeters off and it won't slide down.  Am i doing something wrong or is my card incompatible with my case?  Thank you

Hey guys, I recently bought an old HP OEM computer (a 'dc7700', I think) off eBay. It's one of those towers that is placed horizontally, and it's quite thin. I was planning on using it as an HTPC but it lags when trying to watch HD movies, so I think I'm going to buy some really low-end graphics card.

I was looking at this one (I'm in Australia and it's either eBay or local IT shops):

I'm wondering, will this fit in the tower? Do I need to specifically look for a low-profile graphics card? Thanks in advance.

Hi TechSpot Forums!

I own a Dell Optiplex GX280 Mini-Tower PC, and am seriously considering buying a graphics card for it.

My question to you is, which would best be compatible with my specs?

System Specs:

Dell Inc. OptiPlex GX280
Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3
3.00 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
2552 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory
500.10 GB HDD

Current Video Card:

Name: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family
Manufacturer: Intel Corporation
DAC Type: Internal
Approx. Total Memory: 128.00 MB
Current Display Mode: 1400 x 1050 (32 bit) (60GHz)

Does installing a graphics card mean you can achieve higher resolutions on your LCD monitor? That is partly the reason I will be purchasing one.

Thanks for any info or suggestions,

Hello everyone.

Can someone post a good GFX card for no mor ethne $100 for a miini tower PC such an emachine El series etc. So a low profile GFX card. My friend does some basic gaming WoW, Moonlight etc.

i know a regular card is too big. What is one of the best 100 dolalr or below gfx cards that are low profile and can fit into mini tower PCs? The slot can be the regular PCI 2.0

Thanks guys

A:Solved: Best budget Graphics card for mini tower form factor?

The biggest problem with OEM PC's is that the power supplies aren't typically up to the task of an addon card. So it's generally recommended to replace the power supply as well. With this being a mini-tower, I wouldn't be surprised if it does not use a standard sized power supply, so that is likely not an option.

If you want to simply try a new card anyway, your options will be limited by the card size. There isn't much of a selection of low profile cards. Find the latest generation chipset which fits your budget.

A:Hp pavilion h8-1020 and a new graphics card

@Scottperkins?, welcome to the forum. The problem that you are experiencing is caused by the fact that the GTX 970 requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The BIOS can't be upgraded to UEFI.  The last cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670's. The GTX 750Ti requires UEFI, also. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

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: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.

There is no way to add a video card without upgrading the power supply unit (PSU).  The current PSU is only 300W.  While some of the newer cards state in the specs that they will run on 300W, most members have reported that they require 400W. Here is a USB 3.0 video adapter that will work.  You have two USB 3.0 ports on the back of your computer.  I suggest contacting StarTech's Tech Support for help with choosing the best video adapter for your needs. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

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.

Boba729, welcome to the forum. Here is a card that should work for you.  It is a double card, so you will no doubt lose the use of one of the PCI Express x1 slots.  Read the "Customer Reviews" to see what other users have to say.  If you decide against this card be certain to stay under 9" in length to assure that it fits into the space provided. It doesn't state the amount of wattage required to run it properly, but I believe that you can get by with a 550W to 600W power supply unit (PSU).  Here is a highly rated PSU manufactured by Corsair.  I also like OCZ products. These two items should keep you close to your $200 limit. Please click "Accept as Solution" if your problem is solved.

I want to install a new graphics card in my old Pavilion.

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.

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.

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

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?

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.

A:M70e Tower-memory, graphics & power supply upgrade

If you don't wish to buy memory from Lenovo, both Kingston and Crucial have 'System Specific' memory for your system that are guarranteed to work. Memory timings must be match what the BIOS expects for the system to recognize it, and generic memory often doesn't work.   
Use your Hardware Maintenance Manual for instructions on how to upgrade the memory. After making any memory change, run 2 passes of MemTest86 to ensure all is well.    A few older system types (eg. some models of M58), required a BIOS update to support 4 GB modules.   I'm not familiar with the M70, but it's probably similar to the other models.   If you take the cover off and measure the existing supply, then you'll know if it is a ATX or TFX standard. )
The Mini-Tower uses a standar ATX power supply, and the SFF a standard TFX pwer supply. A power connector adapter (ATX to Lenovo) is required for M92 and forward. For the SFF, the maximum aftermarket TFX is 400w, with 350w being more common -- not a huge increase over stock. For the Mini-tower, I have had an 650w aftermarket Corsair in mine (I recommend one that is semi-modular and shorter, as space is limited inside the case.

I have a FujiFilm XD-Picture card, and I noticed for a while when I go to put my card into the card slots in the tower it would pop up a notice such as:

I guess what I am wondering is what is causing this message to come up? I always just exit it, and access the card a different way because when I exit the dialogue above another box pops up such as:

I guess my question is, what exactly does the Scan and fix mean on the first dialogue that pops up? Should this be done and does it have to do with the XD card itself, or the slot that I put it in?

A:XD card or the XD slot in tower?

All this message means is that the card was pulled from the PC or the camera at some point before a file operation was complete. It would be harmless and helpful to allow windows to 'scan and fix' on occasion.

Something else that would fix it would be to allow the camera to format the card the next time the card is empty.

The comparison you are making between GPU brands is pointless as a diagnostic. The MAIN difference I can see is that one card requires external power, and the other one does not. A proper diagnostic would be to test another GPU that requires external power.

I've heard that the specific PSU you bought will sometimes not power all the hardware it is supposed so.
People saying it could barely power a SSD, or even an extra fan.

My thoughts. Try using another PSU, try using a similar GPU. Use your old PSU and see if it still happens for starters.

You could always stick the new one in and boot up in safe mode. Then proceed to uninstall all the remnant drivers. That *shouldn't* cause any problems, but it may be choppy when you boot up.(I've had this happen before, swapping a Riva TNT2 for a GF6600).

Windows will allot 50% of your ram by default, for when you need them programs. Remember, rams fastr than hard drive, and why have all that ram and not use it.

For your power supply, a nvidia 430/440 or an ati/amd 6450, maybe get away with a 6550... Seasonics are quality.

The slowdown is probably because Vista is a bit more of a beast than xp, and graphics can be a bit more hefty.

A:Upgrading Video Card on Dell Vostro 270 Mini Tower

The 2GB you are referring to is how much system ram is being given to the onboard Intel GPU video to use. You cannot increase that to 4GB. But you can add a discrete PCIe x16 video card. The Vostro 470 has a 300w power supply. So that will limit you as to which video card you can use. The two video cards that we shipped on this model were =
YG17P Nvidia GeForce 640GT 1GB67V2J Nvidia GeForce 620GT 1GB
Or you could remove our power supply and install a higher wattage power supply and then get a better video card.

The Graphic card has one DVI port and one DP port while the on board card has 2xDP and one HDMI.
We have to connect two monitors to this computer . We have been able to connect the monitor to external DP port. But for some reason the DVI port is not working.

So we decided to use the on-board card but it is not working....we removed the external graphic card and set BIOS to Intel Graphic card but still it is not working (I have only tested the DP port at the moment)....

So what do you think the reason might be?

Thanks in advance for the help

hi, I am going to upgrade my graphic card to ATI 5770 so I need a new power supply which has power about 550--600 watt. But the most frustrating problem is that I failed to find a proper power supply with the correct dimension.
I have an HP pavilion e9300 which uses a very wired power supply tower-150mm(W) 86(H) 140(D). But so far all the PSUs I found is the standard size --150mm(W) 86(H) 150(D) which cannot fit in my setup.

So could any PC God give me some suggestion, please??
Is any PSU with the size of my tower or can I just simply install a bigger PSU which can still successfully power up the comptuer?

Thx in adance.

If the power supply will physically fit your case, it should work fine with your computer. Will the extra 10mm interfere internally with anything inside the PC?

So I bought a mini tower. It did not come with a card reader. I was looking at some at a few places, then I get the credit from dell rewards and tried to find the card reader on Many Vostro 3900 come with one, so I know dell makes them. But I tried and tried but can not find them. Does anyone know what to search for? Thank you!

ASUS GT240 graphics card "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD" Can anyone help me with this error message? I can hear the windows startup sound but it shows no display so i plugged the cable into the motherboad and an error box opend wich stated "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD" with no additional information. I searched online and found that asus smart doctor can cause this and they recommend that you uninstall and reinstall the drivers to fix this problem but the pc is not picking up the graphics card to reinstall all the needed drivers. I also found people with the same problem and after they did a clean install of windows7/vista and all the drivers the error box still appeared. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem? Your help will be greatly appreciated.


Do you have the PCIe set as first to initialize in the BIOS? Also, have you tried the card in another slot on the MoBo? Have you tried cleaning out the slot with canned air? Have you tried using a pencil eraser to gently clean the contacts in the GPU where it plugs into the PCIe?

And please, thoroughly fill out your System Specs by clicking on the tab under your post.

Hey, recently, I have came up with an idea of a fourth monitor, but my GPU (970) supports only three, which ones that I own. It has fourth one but I don't have the right cables for it for now.
I noticed that my motherboard has two open video ports, one being VGA which I needed. So, I tried just plugging it in and seeing what happens but it doesn't seem to work, I have tried looking for results around the internet and BIOS but they don't seem to work. The three monitors which I have plugged into my GPU, work perfectly fine, but, as I said, the motherboard's VGA port doesn't work. I have heard that such thing definitely is possible, but I cannot find out what I need to do.

Does anyone have an answer to this?

If my motherboard currently has an intigrated graphics card, but has a PCI-E slot, do I need to do anything special after inserteing my graphics card and installing the drivers, or should it just work right away?

A:How do you switch from an integrated graphics card to an "external" graphics card?

Most modern PCs will detect the new installation of the PCI graphics card and automatically disable the onboard graphics, so yes it should just work.

If for some reason you have problems, you may have to make a change in the bios, I cannot be more specific because each bios is different depending on manufacturer, and model of the motherboard.

Install the card, connect your monitor to it and boot up, when you get into Windows install the driver and reboot.

A:Graphics card doesn't post any graphics to my monitor, computer boots up fine

Its usually just the graphics cards, they do fail especially if they overheat - then video card fan not speeding up might have been the problem - most are dynamic and should actually speed up under load. Depending on the manufacturer of your 8800GTX you might be able to get it replaced under warranty if they have a 3 year or greater warranty.

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.

That is just how you should do that, it's unremarkable.

Should not be a problem at all, it's routine, you could add another card later and be just fine after disabling on-board again.

A:Problem installing new graphics card on Emachine/onboard-graphics

An extreme option

As you do have the option of a working computer prior to installing the new card I would back up any files that are important to you..
Then, before I would pay someone else BIG bucks, I would put in the new card and try a fresh install of windows. Force it to recognise your new card. The drivers that Windows will pick should suffice until the install is done and you can then install the card specific drivers from your disk.
This is given ONLY as a choice. I am not sure this will solve your problem but IT IS something this cheap bas____ would try before paying someone else.

Good Luck and check back, maybe someone else will contribute a better idea.
