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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, Your PC will require a legacy graphics card. The NVIDIA GTX 660 would be your best choice. You might be able to get the NVIDIA GTX 670 or 680 to work but there have at times been issues with these two graphics cards. Review this posted article.

Hi everyone....

Current PC specs listed above ..... to get it out of the way I am a gamer......

This upgrade is to allow me to play some of the newer games such as The Witcher and also to enable me to utilize DX10 when I eventually upgrade to Vista.

RAM.....this is what I have found...I do not overclock and I am very happy with the matched pair of Corasir XMS 512MB 5400C4 running at 533 that I currently have so I figured the safe bet is in just jumping to a matched pair of 1MB sticks of the same.....

Graphics card.....

I do have a budget and from the reviews I have read this card should carry me through the gaming world for at least the next year (hopefully 2) I like eVGA and I have nothing but good things to say about the eVGA 6800GS that I am currently using.

But if anyone has some input as to problems with the card listed below or if you know of another card that will perform just as well (or better) for around the same price I would like to hear about it.

Your 500 watt PSU meets the minimum requirement.... GeForce GTX 970 | Specifications | GeForce

Hi,
My system came with a R9 270 which I want to replace with a Sapphire Dual X R9 R280x.
That card needs a 6pin and an 8pin connection and the manufacturer's site say a 500W PSU is advised.
So, I'm concerned that I get a new PSU that fits my case, has the right connectors for all the 8700 components, and is say north of 600W.
Could anyone point me in the right direction.

What kind of computer do you have? Have you updated it since you got it (adding stuff inside)?
Also, that is the drivers, they probably did something where those became uninstalled, because nothing is "Standard VGA Graphics" every company gives their cards names.

I'm trying to upgrade to a Radeon RX 480 card.  I've upgraded the PSU to a 600 W Corsair.  I've been running a XFX Radeon 6950 with no issues.    I've had the 480 working in another machine so I know the card is fine.  I'm wondering if the 480 is even compatible with the motherboard.  I can't find information on its compatibility.

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

@ArcFlashAvoider, welcome to the forum. I believe that your problem is caused by the fact that the RX 480 requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a Legacy/standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The BIOS can't be upgraded to UEFI.  I suggest that you contact the manufacturer's Tech Support to see if they can help you with a VBIOS update for the card that will allow it to work with UEFI. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

Hi: There are no removable or upgradable graphics cards in your notebook. The nvidia GT940m GPU is integrated into the motherboard and the only way to upgrade the graphics would be to replace the entire motherboard with one listed in the service manual for your model notebook that may have better graphics. This would be a very costly and labor intensive project. Better to sell your notebook and get one with the graphics solution you want.

A:Best Graphics Card, I can upgrade to.

The best card you can get is the one you can afford. Just go to a higher series AMD card. Something in the 7000 series.

You can only put 1 video card on that board, it only has 1 PCI-Express slot

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c01925486

And you could always max out the memory to 16 GBs (but 8 GBs is fine)

But you might want to spend the money on a really good 550 to 650 watt Power Supply

Hello! I have recently purchased an HP Pavilion 550-222ur and found out that the default graphics card (GeForce GT 730) is underperforming in most games. So I  want to get a more powerful one (was thinking GeForce GTX 750 Ti or Asus GeForce GTX 950 mini). While researching the upgrade possibility, I found out that some graphics cards fail to function on HP-branded PCs due to some BIOS issue. So the question is: will the graphics cards mentioned in this post work? And if those cards are compatible, I will have to get a better PSU as well, right? Thanks in advance. Providing specifications of my PC for reference purposes: http://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/HP-Pavilion-550-200-Desktop-PC-series/9259612/model/9764558/docu...

A:Graphics card upgrade

GeForce GTX 750 Ti or Asus GeForce GTX 950 mini are not viable for your specific desktop PC. The internal 180W PSU, as shown in the specs that you graciously provided a link to,  is a definite showstopper. Your PC is, unfortunately, not what one would call a good upgrade candidate as HP did not state which case format it has. I will ask HP about it.

To do this, you must replace the mainboard - which will also mean replacing the CPU.  You'll also need a new heatsink assembly and likely, a new AC power adapter.   Together, plan on it costing about $250-300  in parts, plus the labor to do the installation if you don't do it yourself.

I've searched and found a few posts on here questioning upgrading the GPU in the H30 but I haven't seen any follow-ups from people that have actually done it. I'm in the same position with an H30-50 with a GT 705 that I want to change - ideally for a GTX 750Ti but I've found that it draws a bit more power than the GTX 745 which is on the Lenovo hardware list.  Lenovo list 2 ratings of PSU (180w and 240w) and I have a 240W.  The max power of the 750 is 60W against 55W for the 745 - which would equate to drawing about  2% more power on the 240W PSU.  Not much more and possibly within tolerance, although I have already added an SSD. Anyway, I'd be interested to hear from anyone that has actually upgraded their GPU in an H30 or comments about upgrading to a GTX 750Ti. For info the comparisons are shown below.  http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp[]=2815&cmp[]=2843&cmp[]=2952

I am really new to computers, so I followed a friend's advice and purchased this computer (Slim Desktop 410-030) for gaming. However, I came to find out later that the computer wasn't really all that well equipped for gaming straight from the factory. So, I've been looking at ways that I can possibly upgrade this computer to better suit my needs since I JUST bought this thing a few months ago. I need to get an actual dedicated graphics card, I know at least that, but according to a techie that I went to about upgrading the computer, there isn't actually enough space in this computer to get an updated graphics card. So to remedy that, apparently I have to get a whole new case for the computer. And ON TOP of all of that, apparently there's not even enough power in this computer to handle a new graphics card. I feel so hopelessly lost and helpless. What on Earth am I supposed to do to get some form of satisfactory gaming power out of this thing?

Hi all,

First time on the forum as this is my very first attempt at upgrading my PC.

I'm having serious doubts whether my 2 year old Dell XPS 210 (Core 2 Duo E6600 Processor 2.4GHz 1066Mhz) box will be able to cope with Street Fighter 4. I've been using the URL link (below) to benchmark my computer against minimum specs of some current graphics heavy games (Far Cry 2, Crysis, Left 4 Dead etc.). The funny thing is that it apparently fails minimum specs for games that seem to already run just fine with my current setup.

Can You Run It?

Anyway the issues are:1. Graphics Card

Currently I still have the factory fitted 256MB ATI Radeon X1300 Pro (PCI Express x16 interface with DVI output) in place. I'm well aware that because of the space saving case, the Dell XPS 210 is notoriously difficult to upgrade, and I suspect (as a newbie) that this impacts on the graphics cards I can upgrade to. I'm told that the Radeon X1300 is a half-height graphics card and my general search for half height replacements similarly have 256MB.
Would I be able to replace my current PCI-Express x16 graphics card with a (half-height) PCI-Express 2.0 card?
Are there any more powerful (>256MB) low-profile/half-height graphics card you guys can recommend?
Hopefully I won't have to start considering about replacing the power supply as well, since I have exactly no knowledge about that what-so-ever.

2. RAM

I have a AMD A9-9410 CPU, I have a Radeon R5 Graphics card + 5 compute cores (2C+3G if that helps) and Im curious to see if I can upgrade my graphics card. The screenshot is a picture of my computer info via dxdiag. Thanks Just lemme know if I can upgrade it or not 

A:Graphics card upgrade

No there is no removable part that could be upgraded. All the video function is on chips soldered into the motherboard. This is true of almost all laptops.

good morningI own a PC pavilion 2302-el, and I must connect it to a 4K screen.I would like to replace the graphic card (Radeon HD7570) with one that supports the resolution to 4K (just to see movies and photos, not for gaming): is it possible? You have a list of cards that are compatible with this PC? Or, alternatively, to make sure that a card is compatible, what things I must check (for example, I see geforce gtx1050: it could be good)? Thank you Tommaso

Just wondering if I can upgrade the graphics card on my HP Envy m7 - u009dx Notebook... It came with a 940mx & I was really looking to upgrade it... 

A:Can I upgrade the graphics card?

Not without replacing the motherboard. I think there is a version with a 950MX, but the cost of replacing the motherboard for that modest upgrade would not make sense. The video is not a "card" as we understand it on a desktop. Soldered right into the motherboard.

Good morning,

I'm looking for some general advice around my graphics card on my rig. The rig itself is just over 3 years old now (see specs next to my name) It was a customised one and at the time I went for pretty much the best of everything that I could afford at the time. I have upgraded a couple of things, namely memory and hard-drives over the past couple of years, but I've not really needed to do much else as even by todays standards it runs games on high sometimes ultra..depending.

I'm looking at either obtaining another GTX280 (1gb) and running in SLI (I know its dated now but as previously mentioned it still runs games at high) I am bidding on a couple on ebay...as it seems I can't get them from many places now. My other option is to splash out on one of the newer GTX 680 cards... but at £370 I don't think I can justify it on the basis that I don't think it will improve my system by £370! I can probably pick up a GTX 280 for between £60 - £80 or less if i'm lucky!

What are your thoughts?
