You may want more than a new graphics card. nVidia's support for the nForce 430 chipset (with its integrated 6150SE graphics) appears to be limited. ("Legacy" status. No Windows 7 drivers.)

Yes it is old and also on-board I found out. So would I still buy a card? It is working better with reinstall of Windows 7 with 64.
Thanks for answering.

Maybe.

One concern: it's common for an appliance PC to have a pretty minimal power supply. A discrete graphics card may want more power than you have.

As you haven't told us what model your HP Pavilion is, its hard to offer detailed advice.

Thank you
HP's specifications:

HP Pavilion a6110n Desktop PC Product Specifications HP Pavilion a6110n Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

It has a PCI-E (PCI Express) X16 graphics slot, which means that most cards that are for sale now will fit. PCI-E X16 versions 3.0, 2.1, and 2.0 are all supposed to be backwards compatible with PCI-E X16 version 1.

The motherboard is microATX (244 X 244 mm, or 9.6 X 9.6 inches), so check whether a card might be too long for the case.

HP doesn't mention the power supply, but from what I see elsewhere, it's only 250W.

Supposedly, you can replace it with an industry-standard ATX power supply with no difficulties.

The PC doesn't look like a prime candidate for expensive upgrades, but that's yours to decide.

Wonderful to see all I looked at print out and could nothing of the parts or language. What would you suggest to Purchase? I only do mostly basic stuff. An old lady! Tuffdahl.

I'm not sure what's best. (I don't do "basic". ) Maybe a card based on the Radeon HD 5450 chipset. here's a few:

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics Cards, Radeon HD 5450

Some manufacturers suggest at least a 300W PSU for the card, but that seems absurd - the card maxes out at around 20W. I'd be inclined to try using your stock power supply.

If you go for this, or some other graphics card, the replacement path is:

Uninstall the current graphics drivers. Shut down rather than restarting Windows.

Disconnect the power from the PC. (Better: turn off the switch on the power supply, if it has one. That'll preserve grounding.)

Disconnect the monitor from the old graphics card. (If you had a discrete graphics card, you'd remove it now.)

Install the new graphics card. Make sure that it's firmly seated in the slot.

Connect the monitor to the new card.

Power up.

After Windows starts, install the new graphics drivers. (May require a restart.)

That's all. Good luck.
