Adding a video card in a hp pavilion p6620f with a card mother n-alvorix-rs880-formfat (alvorix)

I want to replace the video edge in this computer with a video card. I want to use a card geforce n210 1 gb ddr3 pci express dvi/hdmi. Anyone know if it will work. It seems that this is what I see so far, but I'm not a computer person. I want to be able to put a tc in my TV and be able to play some of the new games.  Thanks for any help


The graphics card must be a PCIE x 16 compatible (for the expansion on the motherboard slot) one. Geforce n210 will definitely work, because it's a pcie x 16 card compatible USB2.0. You have a desktop computer, then that means that any pcie 2.0 x 16 graphics card might work and it's always on your wallet and the power of the power supply.

    original title: video card

    Hello Dennis,.

    Too many changes on the hardware and Windows/Microsoft thinks you might be trying to engage in piracy.

    I've not seen this happen just for a video card, then maybe you have changed other materials in the past too?

    Sometimes, happened me on a Windows/Microsoft Update.

    If you are reactivated successfully, should be inconsequential.

  • Dimension 2400, adding a video card


    I'm new to this discussion and just hope I am posting this in the correct place. I have an older Dell Dimension 2400 with an integrated video card. I'm running 2 monitors. Problem is that when I install the video card, VGA - slot PCI, the machine loads, see the new map, then flashes all for sure!

    Is there a jumper on the motherboard that should be placed or a setting in the BIOS/setting (looked everywhere here), that I need?

    Thx for the help and time with this frustrating problem to anyone. I ran 2 monitors on all of my machines simply by adding the video card, but not this machine.

    It is running Win XP Professional.


    The Dimension 2400 BIOS default setup an Auto setting for the video.  If you must have both integrated and the functional PCI card, you must go to the system configuration (F2 during the self-test after the start-up of the machine) and change the setting on board to force the computer to send video to the built-in port.

  • Adding a video card second second opinion of monitor

    I have a HP Pavilion HPE h8 model - 1360t.  It has a Radeon HD 7550 video card.  I would like to add a second monitor and I need a second video card.  It must be a PCI Express x 16.  Can I use an old Series 6000 Radeon card or need a newer series 7000.  I was chatting with a tech support and asked him and he gave me 4 cards of the hd series 7000 I could use.  But I can not find but one of them and I would go less if possible.


    If they are monitors Dell 1901fp, they support the VGA and DVI - D. Please check that there is VGA and DVI - D time ports. Your card will work without needing to be replaced. Connect as follows:

    Computer > DVI - D cable > monitor #1

    Technology > cable HDMI-DVI > Monitor #2

  • P7-1414, adding a video card

    I would add a PNY NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 610 graphics card to this computer. It requires only a 300W PSU, so I should be good in this regard. I was in the bios but does not know how to disable the onboard video. the system runs Win8 and has 8 G of ram. Any ideas?

    The BIOS automatically disables the embedded video when it detects a properly installed and powered in the PCIe x 16 slot discrete video card. In addition, you will need to ACTIVATE 'Secure Boot' and 'Legacy Support' in the BIOS before the computer will start with a video cardinstalled compatible no UEFI.

    Before installing new video card, make your changes in the BIOS and turn off the computer. Then, install the video card and turn on the computer.

    Please see HP PC desktop - computer does not boot after installing a video (Windows 8) card for more information on the subject.

  • La carte video card mother cupertino2

    See you soon!

    I ve got a HP Pavilion p6-2055sc with a motherboard cupertino2-H61-au-TX and processor i3 2120. I'm about to upgrade to a core i5 - 2500 k. I am also considering a new graphics/video card that is compatible with the motherboard. I don't have high-end graphics/video card because it would cost for many, need to do something about feeding, etc. (and so I guess I could go for a new computer altogether). You know a card compatible and "affordable" better than the nvidia gforce 520?

    / Coggers

    What is your version of the BIOS? If it's 7, ok.  If it's 8, your in the UEFI.  It is possible to get the GPU that have no requirements of UEFI.  Some reading to understand why WIN8 and UEFI is the latest system.

    If you can get over the hedge, PSU, for example look at this British seller.  600W Corsair

    If you go to this site, you can run different configurations.  I took the liberty of linking "Assassins Creed IV".  You enter the different specifications, and it gives you "values" based on these specifications.  If you want to enter the site with the name of the game in a different game, or google, or use the tab "Can I Run It.  Then you need an account, but it's free.

    Yes, it seems that everything should play nice. The CX600 Corsair is known to fit the cases most, HP consumer computer office, of which your p6654y and it is strongly recommended. The AMD HDX850WFK42GM is a processor of Deneb TDP of 95 watts, so it should work on your computer. Geforce GTX660, while it is a little big, must match your computer... Make sure you just measure along the slot PCIe graphic for obstructions.

  • Add video card model HP Pavilion 500-217

    I have a Pavilion model 500-217 with integrated graphics running Windows 8.1.  I am trying to add a graphics (MSI Geoforce GT 730) but the computer is not see it.  Put in the new card into the slot of the PCE (the only one on the motherboard), I do not know of riders or swithces that must be addressed.  Graphs can be upgraded?  And if so, what am I doing wrong?


    Have you changed the 2 BIOS settings must be changed so that you added the video card?

    If this isn't the case, please see the info on the link below.

    If you did (or if you didn't, but then changed the BIOS settings) and the card still does not, unfortunately, I don't know what could be the issue.

  • PC does not recognize video card

    I had bought an EVGA Geforce GT610 graphics card and installed in my HP Pavilion 500 - 54 (Windows OS 8.1). When I tried to install the video drivers (latest drivers from EVGA) for the new video card I received a message as the "graphics driver cannot find compatible devices. Also the new map did not appear anywhere in the graphics card or anywhere in the Device Manager. I've disabled the secure boot mode and disabled slot security legacy for the pci slot where the video card. Yet I still can't the PC to recognize the video card (which is compatible with this system). I tried to uninstall the pilots on board, but that did not help. The PC should recognize the video card, when he was put in the x 16 pci slot. Someone has or has had this problem and have you found a solution to the problem. And Yes, I have tried the card in another PC and it works fine. I have exhausted all avenues of solution up to now and still can not solve this problem. Any advice or fixes will be greatly appreciated.

    Only, I solved the problem. It turns out that the instructions on adding a video card failed a defintely detail to include.  As well as strives mode, you need to go into the boot settings and select legacy boot.  I thought that ithat legacy mode automatically would have done, but I shouldn't assume. All is well now. It detected the video card and drivers have been installed. Thanks for the suggestions. I hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

  • Please help me with the video card and power supply issues!

    Hello and thanks in advance for any help. I'll try and do a short explanation, but I can't promise anything. I bought an a6620f Pavilion about 2 months ago I didn't know that you had to purchase a special hardware in order to play video games. In any case, I bought about 300.00 worth of new video games and none of them works. they say because of my video card. Then try to buy a new video card and it won't work because I only have a 250 watt power supply. I spoke with a hp technician before you buy a PSU and I was told that my motherboard was only designed to use a 300 watt max power I tried to buy one at best buy and the clerk said 4500 is the smallest they sell. and I need at least a 400 Watt or powerrsupply to make the new video card with a value of buyiong. My questuion is what can I do if I can't buy one more big power supply how can I install a new video casrd? Please help me I'm lost

    Hi chefinomaha,

    Sorry to hear about your frustration. Here's some good news.

    I think you have been misinformed or there was a communication error. Your motherboard should not be limited to the only 300W. I don't know with certainty how high you can go in watts, but you can go higher and should go higher, if you add a video card.

    The important thing is to get the right kind of diet that fits your connectors.

    Here's your motherboard page.

    Here is a document with step-by-step instructions and video for adding a video card.

  • Upgrade the video card on PC p7-1421

    I'm looking at adding a video card in my pc.  The problem is all the cards I have watch requires more power or are a card double slot.  On some forums, I looked in there are a lot of warnings while ensuring that a card double slot is compatible not only with the motherboard and the power supply, but also if it can be inserted into the case.  One of the cards below will work with the power I and enters the case?

    I have a PC of p7-1421 with a 300W power supply.

    The cards I look at are:

    MSI AMD Radeon R9 270 2048 MB PCIe 3.0 x 16 dual video card

    R7 MSI 260OC 1 GB PCIe video card 3.0x16

    KnightFall, welcome to the forum.

    All cards except the R9 270 (10,08 ") seem to be good as much as the length and depth of the card.  The R9 also requires an additional power on the power supply cable.  However, MSI does not provide the necessary power to the power supply (PSU).  You must contact them for this information.  I suggest to make a model of the size of the card that you choose to ensure that it fits in the space.

    It is not impossible to find a video card to run with a 300W power supply, but almost.  If you want a good mid-level video card you should definitely consider an upgrade of at least 500W POWER supply; 600W is still better for future updates.

    Here's a guide that will help you understand what the installation of a video in a computer Win 8 card required.

  • ThinkCentre m91p 7033 D 54 Add video card

    Hi all!

    I got a plug from the Tower of 7033d 54 m91p and was looking online everywhere to see if I could add a video card to this computer. I know that there are other posts on m91ps in discussing the range of the ati HD6600 series to the 7700 s but I wanted to be safer for the sake of my own computer. If someone has or had a thinkcentre m91p 7033d 54 (since there are several models of the m91p, I suspected that energy consumption is different), please let me know if you have added a video card! or... If anyone is familiar with this model of the m91p, please help me! I realize, because it is a tower compact that I would need a small and discreet video card. Thank you!

    To be clear on terminology, your model is a Small Form Factor, SFF (the tower is a different model).

    7750 is the best graphics card available (a 6670 also works, but has worst heat and lower performance). You will need a low card profile, and measure the length available, as it will be too tight. Get the one with the biggest fan, it will cool better with less noise. The PSU is a custom size and not easy to upgrade.

    I use AMD Catalyst 13.4, it is solid. Monitor system and GPU time during the game, you may need to remove the cover from the pci beside the GPU for ventilation slot.

    Be the latest updates of BIOS, Lenovo and MSFT.

  • upgrade the video card for HP TouchSmart 600-1120 or renounce FF XIV

    We just bought the HP TouchSmart Desktop PC 600-1120, and now, we found that we cannot play FFXIV top because he has the wrong video card.  He needs an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 video card.

    Can we change the map?  It will mess up of the touchscreen?

    This model does not support the upgrade of the GPU. The touchsmarts use the Integrated GPU and do not have expansion slots required on the motherboard for adding a video card.

  • HP Pavilion 500-314: big problems by adding an external video card

    You are looking for assistance.

    I recently bought a HP Pavilion 500-314.  Specifications are the following:

    The unit includes the integrated graphics card Radeon R7 and comes with a 300w power supply

    I bought this unit in large part because it states explicitly that "supports PCI Express x 16 graphics cards".  I run a quad-monitor configuration for my work and traditionally did it this using a card ATI over-pants 2450.

    I tried now three different external graphics cards and can get any of them to work:

    First attempt was with a VisionTec Radeon HD 5570 (point #900345).  This card supports quad-monitor configuration and requires a minimum power of 250w.  When I installed the card, the HP Pavilion beeps several times a series of 4 or 5 (can't remember which) emits a beep, but refused to send an image to a video output (either on board or the new card).

    Next attempt was with an EVGA GeForce GT 610.  It's a Setup dual monitor and requires a minimum 300w power supply.  Got the same exact response as with the VisionTec (i.e. the series of beeps... computer would not start all monitors).

    So both of these cards (new), I basically gave up immediately that I couldn't in the BIOS (b/c wouldn't monitors) to see what was going on.  My understanding is that the series of 4-5 beeps usually means that there is a problem of graphics card, or the card that was added doesn't have enough power.  It's frustrating, because the HP Pavilion 500-314 a supposedly a 300w power supply, which is at least equal to the minimum required for each of these cards.

    At this point, I took out the ATI over-pants 2450 my old machine and tried.  This card at least has not caused the series of 4-5 beeps.  Windows has started.  However, once I log in, Windows tries to install the new (card over-pants) repeatedly, only then, the screen flashes and blinks and flashes.  Then I went into the BIOS.  The BIOS indicates that the system recognizes the card, and that the integrated video has been disabled.  However, there is always a signal coming out of the onboard video output (DVI), so it is not in fact actually disabled.  My feeling is that Windows is trying to control two separate video cards (edge + external), which is what causes the problems.  I can turn off the graphics card over-pants w/under Windows (in Safe Mode) and let the card installed, and things work fine.  However, as soon as I try and activate the card, I get endless cycle flashing monitors.

    I spent a few long sessions with HP technical support and they were useless.  They claim that this is not a problem of HP as the embedded video works fine.  I find this extremely frustrating response.  I think it is a matter of HP, because BIOS doesn't seem to be properly disable the onboard video.  Not to mention that the PC can't seem to properly interface with Windows compatible 8 PCI-E cards that claim explicitly require less energy than this unit has.

    I'm usually pretty computer savvy, but have reached my wits end on this one.  I'd appreciate any help anyone could provide.  I tried all kinds of combinations of variables (i.e. enabling integrated video, setting external card at the elementary level, etc.) through the BIOS, but also combinations of w/under Windows, disable integrated video, but nothing is working.

    900345 VisionTek Radeon HD 5570 1 GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x 16


    Thanks a lot for your quick response.

    The first time that I spoke with HP support, they had me disable secure boot.  Unfortunately my problems (i.e. the cards would not install correctly).  However, after reading the link you provided that I was inspired to try things one last time with a new beginning.  I uninstalled all drivers, removed all cards, re-engaged start-up secured, restarted, close, disabled secure boot, reinstalled the cards and rebooted.  And, this time, the system accepts the card GeForce GT 610.

    Difficult for me to express how grateful I am to you.  I spent two weeks and countless hours trying to get this corrected.  Just I found these forums earlier wish.
