Preferred Solution: Upgrading graphic card in HP Pavilion a1522in

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 would recommend a gtx 460 or an amd 6790. Both run right around $150. For only 150 you aren't going to get anything near max settings. Also you have to upgrade your psu. The recommended amount is at the very minimum 300w for a low end graphics card. You ideally need a mid-high end gpu, but you can't get all that much better performance in your price range. You should be looking for a decent 450-550w PSU. Corsair is a good brand.

Which specific video card and model do you mean?  You have only identified them with their generic model series names. What is the product number of your desktop PC? I can't find anything with the "hp pavilion 560-p003" you have identified it with.

A:Upgrading Graphic card help

you wouldnt have to change anything, it would work fine.

the main question is your powersupply, what wattage is it rated to? I think the gtx 760 recommends a 500w or above, but different card makers quote differences.

the weakest link in your pc will become your cpu which will bottleneck the system, but youll still be fine playing games, maybe not at their maximum settings.

I have a ATI Radeon X300 PCI Express 1.0 card and was wondering what ATI card would be suitable and will fit in a Dell Dimension 5150 case. I want to upgrade as I'm hoping to get my old Pentium 4 computer up to a state to where it is good enough for games that still do require a Pentium 4 processor to work as I'm finding that whilst it can handle games, sometimes it struggles to work with others.

Just curious but on the site it says that i can download the NVidia graphics software but i can't complete it unless i have an actual Nvidid graphics card installed on my computer. Is it possible for me to upgrade the card. I have the Intel HD Graphics card and i want to switch it out for the Nvidia without any problems.

A:upgrading graphic card

Hi: In order to add the nvidia graphics adapter, you would have to change out the entire motherboard with the one that has the Intel/Nvidia switchable graphics. This would be a very labor intensive and costly project to undertake.

The HP h8-1010it motherboard with it's WIN 7 is a Legacy BIOS.  The answer your seeking is the MSI 750Ti card, which you already know has the UEFI - Legacy switch.  Your PSU is adequate for the GT545 or the GTX 750Ti.  Call MSI concerning your desires on the R7 or R9 series, and ask which specific card is UEFI - Legacy (Hybrid) card.  Be aware that you'll need a new PSU, as these cards need more Wattage.

A:Help upgrading my computer (graphic card and psu)

The graphics cards wil fit in your motherboard as you have a 2.0 16x PCIe slot and from what I can see your case can fit a dual slot card (as far as card slots on the back go) but I cannot find any details regarding the length from the card slots to the (hard drive cages?) edge of the case. The best way would be if you could measure the length from the card slots to the hard drive cages / edge of the case, then we can recommend an appropriately sized card and a new PSU based on the recommended card.

A:problem upgrading the graphic card

Can you buy a 1GB AGP graphics card at the moment? They seem to be scarce (in the USA) at the moment.

If you can get one, the only harm that I foresee is a slightly higher cost than a 512MB model.

oo.. ill like suggest a GF9600GT just for the fun of it. =)

but seriously, guessing your MB only has a AGP slot, so your choices are pretty much limited. you can try the HD2600XT or the nvidia 7-series. but they cost about $100 or so? not really worth it when you compare them to the pcie cards.

Hi: There is no removable/replaceable graphics 'card' in your notebook like what can be done in a desktop PC. The only way to upgrade the graphics would be to replace the entire motherboard with one listed in the service manual for your specific model PC that may have better graphics. This would be a costly and labor intensive project.

A:Upgrading Graphic Card SIMPLE HELP NEEDED

First of all, we have no idea what we are working on; post your exact system specs; ie make and model of mb, exact pw supply installed, etc.

Next here is how to properly install a new video card;
1 Uninstall ALL software related to the card using control panel; ie driver, any editing software, any control app, etc
2 When prompted to reboot, do not. Just shutdown the system and pull out your old card
3 Install new card and pw ON the system. Do not use any supplied CD. Go to the amd/ati site and download the latest driver for your card. Install the driver and reboot when prompted. Note you can download the driver prior to removing the old card; just do not attempt an install until your new card is installed.

Note for ati cards, I never install all of the stuff that comes on a CD. I install just the driver files downloaded from ati. IMO the CCC is problematic at best and often causes problems.

Hi, You need an UEFI enabled, low profile, low wattage graphics card with a full size bracket.  Sometimes graphics cards are shipped with both brackets.  Your PC only has a 270 watt power supply so your pickins will be limited. I have seen some cards that might work but the graphics card manufacturer's all recommend a bigger power supply. A higher wattage Slimline power supply from Athena might work in your PC. You can use GPU-Z to determine the performance (memory bandwidth) as a place to start from when looking for a graphics card.

A:HP Pavilion p7-1421 upgrading graphics 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.

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.

Hello, I am wanting to upgrade from the integrated graphics that came with my computer to a GeForce GT 730. I already have the card and had plugged it into my PCIe x16 slot and do see the fan running but neither my BIOS or Windows sees a card plugged into that slot. I did go into the BIOS to see if I had to enable the slot but the only option I see is to Disable or Enable security on the slot. It was already set to disabled. I'm kind of at a loss as to getting it recognized and if any more info is needed I'm happy to provide.

Many people say it's useless to upgrade the video card on a Hp Pavilion like mines because it only accepts PCI cards. I'm not looking for any expensive high-tech cards, just something that can Handle COunter-Strike:Source.

Help please.

A:Upgrading Video card on my HP Pavilion a705w

Honestly, your best bet would be to buy a new computer, if you were going to run CS:S on a system like this, you would have to upgrade video as well as some memory... There are no "good" video cards for a PCI slot, and the memory in that system isnt all that great...

I'm looking to upgrade my Graphics Card to a newer nvidia model, currently have GT 620 which came with the pc. I'd like to know how far up the nvidia line would the motherboard of my HP Pavilion HPE H8-1203 be capable of handling(ex. 700 series, 800 series, 900 series). I have heard that this particular model has some issues with newer Graphics Cards due in part to some issue with the bios. Just wondering at what point would I be wasting my money by purchasing a newer graphics card.  Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.

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

Firstly i went to to check what gfx cards my computer was compatible with. It told me PCI-express

I bought the above gfx card.
The gfx card installation CD doesnt have instructions for its specific type of card (X1300), just a bunch of other ATI Radeons, which is ridiculous.
Its made by Sapphire so it figures.

Well ive never done this before, ive installed RAM which is easy but ive heard this is a bit more complex. Ive been told i need to first uninstall my current video drivers and possibly disable the onboard. My Current card is on a Intel® 82915G/82910GL Express Chipset Family motherboard. I also heard i have to hook a bunch of things up. Could anyone give me a walkthrough or point me in the direction of an installation guide?

A:Upgrading video card on HP Pavilion a1020n with ATI Radeon X1600 Pro PCI-e

Don't kill the messenger but....

It looks to me like for expansion slots, you are limited to PCI only. You do not have any PCIexpress slots on that motherboard, nor any AGP.

The card you purchased will not work in your system. You may want to wait for a second opinion before you toss it out your window, but I am 99.999999% sure.

A:HP Pavilion dv6-6155tx graphic driver

Hi: That 84.9 MB driver HP posted is a mistake.  There aren't any AMD graphics drivers in that file. This is the one you should be using, and if it doesn't work, unfortunately I would not know why it doesn't. This package provides the AMD High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver and Catalyst Control Center for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. For notebooks with switchable graphics modes, this package includes drivers for both graphics processing units (GPUs). Switchable graphics enable users to switch between a power-saving graphics mode (normally used under battery power) and a high-performance graphics mode. If high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video output is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver. File name: sp55092.exe

Since I reinstalled the computer, I no longer have to option to chose what graphic card I want to use. Before this reinstallation I could just right click on the desktop and there was a option that said Switch Graphical units, but now there is nothing like that. And I have the latest drivers for both graphic cards and latest Catalyst Control Center and Direct X installed. And in device manager all drivers are installed correctly. So I have no idea what to do.

Is probably your best choice, but if I was you I would actualy build a new computer instead of upgrading a old one, Saves you from upgrading all the parts ( which could add up to alot of money because the Manufacture's website sometimes doubles or triples the price of the part so you pay more )

If you go on Newegg you could probably find the same part for cheaper then the manufacture's website

My 4 year old Pavilion 9695c came with 128 MB RAM, and an empty slot for another 128. The literature said that 256 was the max.

I added the second stick but now find that 256 is not enough. Some applications (twain) will not run adequately for lack of memory.

I inquired to HP to see if they offered a motherboard/RAM upgrade. This was their reply:
The motherboard shipped with your HP Pavilion 9695c PC supports maximum 512 MB, 256 MB in each of the two memory slots. Although installing more then 256 MB might sometimes work on your computer, it is recommended that you install 256 MB memory only.

Rather than buy a new machine, I'd like to keep this one, just need more RAM. Before I buy two new 256 sticks and see if it will work, does anyone know? Or any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

A:HP Pavilion 17-e049wm upgrading ram

The official specs say it maxes at 8 gigs but the service manual says 12 and we know it will run 16 as reported by many users. You will not see a lot of benefit from the 8 gig to 16 gig upgrade. It is generally a pretty powerful laptop with an A10 processor and 8650M video but it is onboard video. The processor is an APU which does both the regular computing and the video chores. If you want to do gaming you are going to need a laptop with real dedicated video. 8 gigs is going to give you all the gaming performance the laptop is capable of providing. If you are doing heavy video editing or photoshop work 16 gigs might help.  See p. 54 of the Manual here for memory installation instructions: Manual Post back if you have any more questions. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:video card/graphic card reboot problem

boynamedanurag Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about booting and video card problems and wanted to help. So, if I understand what you're saying, you reinstalled Win7 and the PC boots OK, right? But when you then install a video driver and reboot, it does not boot, right? My guess is that you have one of the old DV6 laptops that has two video chipsets, something called Switchable Graphics.  And the problem with that is that only the HP OEM video drivers will work on that laptop.  IF you install other ones, such as the ones you get from AMD or Nvidia, they will NOT work -- which sounds like what is happening to you. What DOES work is restoring your PC using HP Recovery Media because that will contain the HP OEM drivers.  Media. This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".  If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entty and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while! Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

Can you change a laptop video card/graphic card?

I looked in a shop and they said "a laptop graphic card can not be changed."

Can a laptop graphic card be changed??
(Nvidia geforce go 6150)

Please help
With many thanks,

A:Can you change a laptop video card/graphic card?

Unless the laptop has onboard graphics, there is no reason why the card can't be changed.

Of course, I am not very knowledgeable with GFX cards, so I can't necessarily tell whether is has onboard graphics or not.

I want to upgrade my HP Pavilion g6 A3J87UA#ABC laptop... This laptop is been with me since 2010 and I want it to last more by upgrading it. I want to prioritize upgrading the RAM and storage memory, what is the maximum possible memory I can put in this without any errors and such issues?  Another thing to is, I like to upgrade it into Windows 10 (at present its Win7 Service Pack 1 64bit). Can I upgrade my motherboard or even the graphics card to handle large workloads such as Adobe CC, Cubase and Cities Skylines? Or I just upgrade the memory modules only... Thanks for the help!

Hi, The following link shows specs of your machine: 1. RAM: Currently it has 4GB of RAM (2 x 2) you can upgrade to 8GB ( 2 x 4). The following manual shows you how: 2. Storage: It has 750GB 5400rpm, you can upgrade to 1TB faster HDD or even SSD. In theory you can use any BUT please use existing brand for compatible. 3. CPU: Please check page #2 of the above manual. You need right part number on page 81. 4. Video: sorry you can't, the chip is solderd to the motherboard and it came with CPU. 5. Motherboard: You are talking about buying new machine, much better. It is not easy and NOT economical to upgrade motherboard for laptops. Regards.

I have been running win 7 on my a450n. It has a 3.0 socket 478 cpu now. Microsoft says that the prosessor is too slow.  I can update the BIOS and install a 3.4 gig prosessor.  (I think that the 3.4 is the fastest  intel made)  Will this allow me to run win 10?

The HP site states the maximum upgrade is 256 Mb ( 2 - 128 MB 168 pin sticks - PC 100)
Can I sucessfully install PC-133 256 MB sticks and get 512MB?
There are only 2 slots on the mother board, so I'm limited to what will work in those slots.
Thanks for any help.

Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 (main concern is: will the drivers work ok?) Thanks

View Solution.

A:Pavilion a6332uk - Upgrading to Win 7 from Vista

IMHO, I would do a clean install but the upgrade is easier for a novice.  The upgrade would bring along any junk from the old install but a clean install would need to have all the drivers saved on seperate media to be available for the reinstall.  6 of one, half dozen of the other.BTW: All the Vista drivers are HERE on the support page.  I do not see anything for Windows 7.

A friend of mine has this system, and is finding it hard to play most new games. He was wondering what would be his best options for upgrading, and if it might just be better to get a new system instead. It's a HP Pavilion 753N, with Pentium4, 2.53Ghz, 512mb RAM, with a GeForce5900 video card.

My friend bought a used laptop last year that has been running very slow. She asked me to fix it and I found out she's running Windows 7 on an old HP pavilion dv4250us with only 512 MB of ram. Obviously it needs more memory to run Windows 7 smoothly. I'm not sure if it's worth trying to find memory for this old laptop or going back to Windows XP. She can't afford anything too expensive (otherwise she'd just get a new laptop).

I found this:
which looks pretty reasonable. I'm guessing 2 1 GB sticks will do the trick.

I'm not really sure how to change the memory in this laptop, but I managed to snap a picture of the memory after I opened it up and was hoping one of you guys can give me some tips and let me know if it's worth the effort.

A:Upgrading my HP Pavilion h8-1170uk with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti

Hi, Your first issue is that most NVIDIA GTX 750 graphics cards will not work in your PC.  MSI does have a couple of models of the GTX 750 graphics card that may work. Most if not all graphics cards that I have worked with are designed to fit around the the back slot separator I/O vertical strip.  Review this posted article for the view of a double wide graphics card.  The slotted plate in the middle is easily removed by inserting a flat bladed screwed and wiggling it back and worth until the removable plate becomes loose enough where you can use a pliers to finish the remove process.  The shield is designed to "break off".

I tried to replace the hard drive in my Pavilion g - d dx with an SSD before taking advantage of the free upgrade to Windows I installed the drive a SanDisk Extreme GB unit that I've had sitting around unopened for a while and then used my recovery discs to get Windows onto the SSD The process seemed to be going okay--it went through all five No luck Pavilion g6-1d21dx upgrading SSD to recovery discs rebooted from the SSD and began the setup process Soon I got a restoration incomplete error message though No luck upgrading Pavilion g6-1d21dx to SSD So much for that The HP Recovery Manager also gave me this incredibly helpful explanation There might be unexpected reboot during Specialize to BBV The process will cause CTO panic because the image might not be normal On rebooting I also got an error message about ntoskrnl exe being corrupted or missing nbsp I put the computer's original drive back in and updated Windows to Windows on that drive just to get the Windows license No luck upgrading Pavilion g6-1d21dx to SSD it was the final day to get the free upgrade I also used the Windows media creation tool to create a Windows installation DVD Next I put the SDD back in and tried to install Windows using the DVD I tried this several times but the installation was always unsuccessful I got error messages like Windows could not set the offline locale information Error code x FE and We couldn't format the selected partition Error x No luck upgrading Pavilion g6-1d21dx to SSD I also got this a couple of times Windows cannot be installed to this disk Windows cannot read from the selected disk Windows cannot be installed to this disk Windows could not determine if this disk and its parent devices have the necessary driver support nbsp This computer is not all that old--is it possible that the BIOS doesn't support SSDs I updated the SSD's BIOS but that hasn't fixed the problem I also made sure that the computer's BIOS is up to date nbsp Thanks in advance for any relevant information

A:No luck upgrading Pavilion g6-1d21dx to SSD

Hi, Yes, it supports SSD and you could restore using DVD's. Sounds like the process compared old HDD size and new SSD size. Now, my suggestion: keep the HDD running and when you are happy with this, try (a) Clone the HDD to SSD using many free clone software (I have not tested all of them, only the 2nd and the 3rd on the list) (b) Replace HDD with cloned SSD, Because the HDD is only 320GB therefore at the end you have empty space on the SSD. You can use its as another drive or merge to C: using Windows Disk Management. Regards.

@MSspark, welcome to the forum. HP has their motherboards made to their specifications.  Therefore, they are not the same as retail boards.  This presents a possible problem with upgrading to a different board.  The main problem is find a board that has the holes that match the stand-offs in the case. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.
