Oh Mellonhead this all has been a comedy of errors. My regular tech since 2004 has serious life issues and hasn't teched for us for over 1 year and 5 months.

I called on 4/28 a new tech from the phone book and when he came out to removed my old defective card I knew something wasn't quite right with him but I gave him a chance. On 5/1 he brought out a wrong video card then came back in 4 days and tried another wrong card then today he failed to have the needed adapted for the new card to connect to the monitor. I lost it a little bit and we agreed that I should call someone else. He did give me my check I wrote to him on 5/1 back to me.

So no new card yet and working with the onboard still

This is so exasperating!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Mellonhead gee maybe you could help me...you seems so very intelligent with computers and graphics. Do you thi nk you could research and get me a link to buy the graphics card I need? Please oh please dear Mellonhead.

Here is what I had before...I have a HP low end profile computer and below I put in my system information.

This is the card I wish to purchase: It is a Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS and this is what is on the old box.

Features: TC512
HDCP
DVI + VGA
TV-OUT
OpenGL
PCI Express 2.0
Windows 7 support

I have a Windows 7 Pro x 64. The card can not have any HD because I do not have HD speakers or HD web cam. This now fired tech kept getting me HD enabled cards and my sound would not work.

I attached my system info .


Thank you if you can help me.

I'm a little confused as to why an HD enabled card would interfere with your sound. I suspect that what was happening was that the new HDMI driver was installing it's own sound, and your audio system was switching over to that. It's a simple matter to switch it back, but I guess your tech didn't know that...

Anyway, I found three cards that will likely work. They all support OpenGL and they are low profile cards. One is Nvidia and two are ATI Radeon HD cards. All are inexpensive, but should work just fine for you. And don't worry about the "HD" in the Radeon name. It's just a branding thing, and remember about setting the sound back to speakers when you've got the driver installed.

Here they are:

Good:

Newegg.com - New EVGA nVidia GeForce 8400GS 1GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card

Just as good:

XFX HD-645X-ZQH2 Radeon HD 6450 1GB PCI Express Video Card - Newegg.com

Better:

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6570 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (100324L) - Newegg.com

Remember, I don't know for certain if any of these will work for you. It depends on a lot of variables, and what kind of cards your system supports. In the end, it's up to you what kind of card you get, if any.

Mellonhead I ordered this: Can you tell me if I completely goofed???

Asus GeForce 8400 GS Graphic Card ( 8400GS-SL-512MD3-L ) - Video Card - Asus System

Does this card have open GL?

I ordered before getting your reply but I can cancel the order and get a refund if I need to.

According to Nvidia's website, that card supports OpenGL 2.1, so you should be OK.

Yippee I got dear intelligent smart Mellonhead's OK!!!! I'm thrilled. OMG Mellonhead this new fired tech was such an incompetent!!! I didn't know you could switch from the HD sound back to your original..he sure didn't know how...so incompetent!!!!

My tech we've had for 8 years is having serious life issues and hasn't done tech work for over 1 year and a half. I am so lost without him.

And my horrible experience with this new tech which I fired was causing me such anxiety.

Now the problem will be getting a competent tech out here to install my new card when it arrives...ughhh

OMG I'm so thankful and grateful to you dear Mellonhead. You sure helped so very much and eased my anxiety so much. AGAIN YOU ARE THE BEST OF THE BEST!!!!!!

Well bad news I did some research on that card I ordered and my computers dimension the height is not high enough for the card..the cards height is 4.8 and my computer height is 4.5

I e-mailed sales and ask them not to ship and to credit my card. So I'm going to look into your suggested cards...will let you know what happens
