Adding Additonal Video Card to EliteDesk 800

Q: Adding Additonal Video Card to EliteDesk 800

Try as I might, I cannot for the life of me add in an additoinal video card to this computer. When I tried initially all video (including the integrade one) would be disabled (i.e. no video at all) and would only work AFTER I removed the extrernal/additional card. When I look in the BIOS I see the integrated video is enabled but it is grayed out so I can't disable it. When I play around with the slot security settings I can get the additional video card to be installed alongside, but it is never recongized by the system or Windows - nothing shows up.

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,

I have this PC Chips K7 motherboard, it's got integrated video, but wow does it suck. I'm pretty sure there's a way that I can add my Radeon to the system, but I don't know how. I put it in today, and the screen didn't even start, probobly because of an irq conflict. What's the correct way to do this?

I have a motherboard with the video adapter onboard. Problem is I don't have any drivers for the motherboard or its video. So my resolution is stuck at 16 color.

If I put a PCI Video adapter in the computer, do I need to change anything on the motherboard. I would thinking to just buy a cheap video card with drivers and install.

Now I remember seeing a bunch of jumpers and I hope you will not tell me that I may need to change a jumper because the jumpers are beyond me. I have no documentation for that motherboard.

I hope I can just Plug n Play. What do you guys think???
 

A:Adding a video card to a video on motherboard system???

i would first check the BIOS menu of your motherboard to see if the onboard video can be turned off there. If so, then you're all set.

If not, then post the exact manufacturer of your motherboard and the model and someone here can probably find info on it for you...

In fact, someone might even be able to get drivers for your onboard video!!

I'm thinking of adding a video card to my 1 year old HP desktop. Is there a site or way to figure out if a card would give me a decent improvement? My HP is an AMD A8 6500 (3.5 GHz) with INTEGRATED Radeon HD 8570D graphics card, which seems pretty fast as it is, but I'd like to add a budget or midrange card ($50-$150). I don't need top end performance, just a decent improvement. Would a budget card even improve the performance at all? Also, if I add a card, do I have to reassign the memory that was used for the integrated card to the processor, or does that happen automatically? TIA

I need to run dual monitors on this computer. I purchased an EVGA GEFORCE GT 610 video card with dual DVI outputs. The card specifications say the PC power supply needs to be 300 watts, and have 16 amps of +12 V available, which the power supply in the Envy 700-216 meets. Plugging the card in results in no booting, no video out of either the card or the on-board video, and 8 beeps. Don't know if the card is just not compatible, or the card is defective, or the PC has a problem. Is there anything I can check to narrow down the problem? Thanks, audioconsultant

Hi! This is my first post on this forum and I hope someone can help me out.

I'm trying to add a ATI Rage Pro Turbo PCI video card and I am probably doing things in the wrong order and i am nervous i'll end up without any display. I have on-board graphics on my motherboard (Gigabyte K8VM800MAE) and in the manual it says that on-board graphics is automatically disabled when you add a graphics card. So in Device Manager I uninstalled the on-board graphics, shut down, and installed the ATI card in PCI 1. I connected my monitor to the new card and restarted. Monitor says no signal. I hooked the monitor back to the old output and i have display but with lower resolution than I had before (i was able to change back to proper resolution) . I went back to Device Manager and the on-board graphics was still there and the new ATI card was recognized too. In Properties it says: Device cannot start (Code 10).

What am I doing wrong?

I am upgrading a Dell. I just successfully installed an additional 128MB Ram. However the problem is with the Video Card. It already has onboard video with a pathetic 8MB of Video Ram. I got a nvidia e-TNT 2 M64 PCI video card and installed it. The neat little installer program first removed all the old drivers, then installed the new ones. Everything was going good untill I realized that I couldn't get a signal through the new PCI card until I reinstalled the drivers on the onboard display adapter and set up the TNT card as a SECONDARY monitor. But that's not what I want to do.

-->I want to stop using the onboard adapter (with 8MB) and use the new TNT card (with 32MB) as my primary (and ONLY) display.

I can go into Display Properties, enable monitor 2 (the TNT), move the position of the two monitors around, but I can't disable monitor 1 (the onboard) and I can't set 2 as the primary. The option to set 2 as primary is greyed out and the option to unset 1 from being primary is also greyed out. The only option I have is A: use the onboard only or B: use both moniters and stretch the display across both. If I try to uncheck the "display screen across both monitors, it disables monitor 2.

btw, when this Dell boots up, all that is displayed is the Dell splash screen with no options, it doesn't display the POST, it goes directly from the Dell logo to the Windows 98 logo.

I saw a D815EEA post recently on this forum section made by TANSOCAL and I knew from the answers I saw I could get some great advice and suggestions on video cards and RAM upgrades for my PC.

Here's my problem: I can't run more than 2-3 apps w/out low memory freezes and slowdowns. My PC needs are not high-end (for now), so I figure upgrading my RAM and video may help. I need a stable system for some web design and work projects where I'll be running Adobe, Macromedia and Office software. I have tweaked my system for better PC (RAM/startup managers, etc.) and DSL (3Mbps) performance and updated all my OS/HW drivers.


Here's what I got:

- An Intel D815EEA mobo w/a PIII 933MHz and PC100 3CL 128SDRAM chip
- 4x AGP slot - the video is integrated Intel 82815 graphic controller
- Latest Windows 98SE and hardware drivers and DirectX 9.0c
- Audio (SoundMAX 3D Sensaura) and LAN are also integrated
- 30GB ATA Primary Fat32 and 60GB ATA slave (routinely fragmented)
- 15" Elements Cyclone 7A monitor mainly run @ 1024x 16-bit resolution


The motherboard will only recognize 512RAM (@ max 133MHz speed). One website I found offers a $58 256MB PC133 2CL SDRAM chip, a $55 AGP Radeon 128MB 9200SE. I also found a $30 64MB Radeon 9200SE.

My budget's awful right now, so all I can think of is getting one of those cheap x8 AGP Radeons and a 256 CL2 133MHz RAM chip until I can get a whole new system. The RAM and card should be under or around $100. ... Read more

After I added 2x4GB DDR2 800 mhz ram to my PC and this beastly video card (Nvidia GTX 960 4GB), i started getting BSOD with messages IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, an attempt was made to write to read only memory BSOD and probably others.
I found that 1 of the ram's was corrupted, so I replaced both of the ones i had with 2 others, which were tested in memtest and by windows - all fine. So Ram is not the case anymore. I'm guessing either my PSU cannot feed the GPU (I'm said I have a 450 W PSU, but I believe it to be 500, still not sure), mainly because 1 of the fans for the PSU is broken since like 3 years, and I think the new GPU is making the PSU overheat too much. Other cause would be the hard drive, but I ran window's disk error checking thingy, with a tick on to fix bad sectors - still experiencing issues.
Please give me an insight on what the problem might be - overheating issue (PSU related) or Wattage issue (again PSU related) or something entirely different?

I'm getting the BSOD only when playing video games. Normal PC activity does not cause BSOD.

Thank you!

Hi SpiritBob,

Please run the DM Log Collector again and upload a new zip, the current uploaded one misses several logs.

Looking for some help. I recently purchased an HP Pavilion 500-314.  Specs are as follows: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04293928 The unit includes integrated Radeon R7 graphics, and comes with a 300w power supply I purchased this unit in large part because it explicitly states that "Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards".  I run a quad-monitor setup for my work, and have traditionally done this using an ATI Firepro 2450 card. I have now tried three different external graphics cards, and can get none of them to work: First attempt was with a VisionTec Radeon HD 5570 (item #900345).  This card supports quad monitor setup, and requires a minimum 250w power supply.  When I installed the card, the HP Pavilion repeatedly beeped a series of 4 or 5 (can't remember which) beeps, but refused to send an image to any video output (either onboard or the new card). Next attempt was with an EVGA GeForce GT 610.  This is a dual monitor setup, and requires a minimum 300w power supply.  Got the same exact response as with the VisionTec (i.e. series of beeps...computer would not fire any monitors up). So with both of these (new) cards, I basically gave up immediately as I couldn't even get into BIOS (b/c no monitors would work) to see what was going on.  My understanding is that the series of 4-5 beeps usually means that there is a graphics card issue, or that the card that has been added doesn't have sufficie...

So a family member lost their power supply to their external HD. Because there were some unreplaceable files on there...I offered to help. I told them I could crack the case if they didnt care, and pull out the actuall drive and hook it up to my PC via the open IDE cable (since my drives were SATA). This way I could download the info to my PC and untimately...scrap their drive and move it over to a new drive.

Having succesfully cracked into their chasis and pulling out the drive, I hooked it up via IDE as planned.....MY SYSTEM SHUT DOWN IMMEDIATELY. I tried different jumper configurations just in case thinking that was the issue...no luck.

I gave up eventually and plugged the IDE cable back to the Optical that it originally came from. NOW HOWEVER...when I boot my computer..I get an error saying I have no operating system. So I check my BIOS to look for my drive that has my OS....cant be found.

With this happening...I ask if they ever tried to power up the external with a 3rd party power supply as to acertain wether or not they may have shorted it (thus effecting my system) and they said yes.

So now I fear...I tried to power up a shorted HD and consequently fried one of my own. Does this make sense?

Could it be that I just need to adjust some configurations in my BIOS to recognize my HD with the OS or am I hosed?

A:OS SATA HD down after hooking up additonal IDE drive

Have you attempted to access the "Boot Menu" in BIOS. The "no OS" message is usually in conjunction with the boot order of the PC being wrong. The computer can't find a "bootable device" and returns that message. You need to access the BIOS, and check to make certain that your old "C:/" drive is first in the boot order. (Or obviously, make it so).

If you have a Windows or recovery disc, you could place it in the optical drive, then power up, to see if the PC still boots from that drive. WORD of CAUTION ..: This is just a test, remove the Windows / recovery disc immediately, then power down. We don't want any accidental re-installs of the operating system.

We are on a budget and found this Sapphire radeon 6450 on newegg for $39.99
Will this work in his computer and allow him to play minecraft? steam?

Hi,
I have a Vendor Thermal Printer connected to a USB port.
It is the default printer.

Applications like Word print OK.
A Java application which prints to the default printer OK on Windows XP doesn't print to the default printer correctly on W7.

In the printer properties
x64 Type 3 - User Mode is installed

there is an option to add Additional Drivers
x86 Type 3 - User Mode

Where would I look for these Additional Drivers?
Thanks?

I need advice on what addtional hard drive I can install in my Dell Inspiron 7559 laptop.
Presently, it has a 1TB 2.5" SATA drive manufactured by Toshiba for Dell. The part number is 5K1VD. The specifications of this drive are: 400-AAYK; 1TB (5400rpm) Hybrid HDD with 8GB Flash 400-AAYK; 1TB (5400rpm) Hybrid HDD with 8GB Flash
I want to install a 250GB hard drive that I could use as the boot drive and for my programs and apps. The Toshiba drive would be for data and backups.
I’ve done some research and found that the following drive is often recommended as a boot drive for the 7559: SAMSUNG 850 EVO M.2 250GB SSD SATA III Internal Solid State Drive MZ-N5E250BW.
I’m wondering if anyone has had any experience with installing this drive in their 7559? Specifically, I’d be grateful if anyone could answer the following questions:
1.      Can this drive be installed in the 7559 without a lot of tweaks?
2.      Are there any guides on the Internet to installing this drive in the 7559?
3.      Will the Samsung 850 EVO M.2 work with the Toshiba 5K1VD?
4.      When I buy the Samsung 850 will I need to buy a tray and cable?
5.      What changes, if any, need to make to bios in order to be able to boot from the Samsung 850?
6.      Do I have to identify the Toshiba drive in a part... Read more

A:Best additonal hard drive for Inspiron 7559 laptop

You can use any M.2 SATA (but NOT M.2 NVMe) drive in this system.  You'll want to check to make sure the mounting screw for the drive is present - if it's not, you'll need one.
You can install fresh on the M.2 or clone the existing drive over if it'll fit in the smaller capacity M2 .drive.
Either way, REMOVE the hard drive from the system before you install Windows onto the M.2, however you choose to do that.

Hello,

I have an OptiPlex 9010 with onboard Display Port & VGA
I am trying to hookup a new 58 inch Samsung TV which only has 2 hdmi ports and composite & component.
I need both hdmi for laptop hookups so I can't use them for the Dell 9010.
I want to run VGA to either the composite or the component.
Will the onboard VGA do this?
I have a cable like this:

I would like to add English subtitles to an Italian video which I want to burn to dvd. I have the sub and idx files along with the video. I tried using DVD Flick to do this. But it rendered the movie from widescreen to fullscreen. (Apart from that it works fine.)

I am using Ashampoo Burning Studio 11 and Shrink & Burn 3 to burn dvds. Neither of these programs seems able to include the subtitles.

Can you recommend a program to use? Thanks.
 

A:Adding subtitles to a video.

ConvertXtoDVD and I believe DVDSanta support that option.

hi everybody,
I have a couple of problems trying to add some video files to a ppt presentation. Videos are in mp4 or MOV format.
The first prolem is that I'm able to play the video only on the PC in my office (Win7 Ultimate+Office 2003). On my own PCs (Laptop with Win 7 Home premium/Laptop with WinXP/Netbook with Win7 starter. Office 2003 installed on all of them) I get a black or grey placeholder or the playack is almost immediately interrupted without any error message. In this way I cannot continue my job at home. (this is not so bad )
The second one is that on the only pc where it works, the video flashes one time at the beginning of each playback. It's very annoying...
Any idea/suggestion to solve these problems?

thanks
 

A:adding video to ppt presentation

I think it has to do with your two video formats - mp4 & mov

Powerpoint 2003 doesn't natively support either of those. It needs codecs supplied & installed with Apple QuickTime.
Your Office PC I assume has QuickTime installed, whereas your home computers don't. If you install QuickTime I think that will fix the problem.

As to the video "flashing" problem on your office PC, try updating QuickTime to the latest version: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

I am adding a new Ext HD and need a new USB 2.0 Pci Card. What would be a good investment in a new card?? I want to pay about $20-30. Can anyone tell of a good card?? ODIE
 

A:Adding new HD need a new usb 2.0 pci card

Odie,

That card would be a rather utilitarian device. I don't recall ever seeing a 'review' of USB PCI cards, anymore than LPT add-in cards, or floppy drives.

So I would say that you would be safe with most any card. Safer with a 'brand name' card.

I would like to add a USB 3.0 pci-e card to my system. There are several to choose from but none that I find have a 'header' to bring the USB to a port on my front panel. Those ports are now fed by the USB 2.0 header on my MB. I would sure be nice if I could have a USB 3.0 on the front.

Does anyone know of such a card that will permit to do this.

Thank you.

A:Adding a USB 3.0 Pci Card

I have never seen one like you are looking for either. But you can put the card in and use a front panel USB 3.0 that will fit into a drive bay and use the pass through cables to connect to the rear ports.

I have an intel d845hv board. I took an older pci card out and put a new AGP card in and I get no video, well it flashes on for a second and then right back off. If I put the old video card back in, I can startup fine. I went into the bios and the video was already set to AGP. Ive tried removing the CMOS battery for awhile and then rebooting and I still get nothing. Any insite would be helpful. Thanks!
 

A:No video after changing old PCIvideo card to new AGP video card

Did you remove the old card and drivers in device manager first? You may need to update your motherboard drivers too.
