Windows 7: Removing my graphics card

Removing my graphics card

I opened up my computer to look at my graphics card, as it was the first time I had opened it but when I did open it, I couldn't really find a graphics card. I have a Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family graphics card. All I saw was the back of a blue VGA port and it was on a big, yellow board.

Could anyone explain how i could remove this? I really need a new graphics card, as this isn't really up to the standards I'm looking for.

you have onboard video.

you can buy a video card and put it in, but I would recommend having a friend that is knowledgeable help you out.

The GTX285 in the pic below is what a video card looks like,

no, it has to go in a specific slot either an AGP type or a PCI/PCI-E type slot its very much motherboard dependent

Motherboard in your HP,

Motherboard Specifications, P5LP-LE (Leonite) HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7755.uk Desktop PC - HP technical support (United Kingdom - English)

A video card would go in the black slot (PCI-E 16x) at the top of the three white ones (PCI slots).

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Would putting in the graphics card be the same way as it normally would on any other system?

Here is what the slots will look like

Make sure you remove the rear plate that aligns with the slot you will use, connect the video connection on the video card, use the screw that you removed from the plate to hold the video card in place, apply power and reboot. You may have to disable the onboard video in your BIOS if not done automatically and this will free up the memory it uses for your PC's applications.
