Need advice for the new graphics card

I have a desktop HP Pavilion a6610t with HP w1907 monitors. Windows 7 32 bit.  I want to upgrade to a graphics card that supports two monitors.  Games isn't a factor, but I'd like a card that does not become the neck of the bottle when you surf or work remotely.  I have a PCIe - x 16 available slot.  My price range is around us $100.

What should I look for another as the PCIe - x 16 and the ability to support two monitors when you shop for a graphics card?  I think the AMD Radeon HD 6570 is a good starting point.  What do you think?

Any information will be appreciated.


Here are the specifications and the configurable option for your desktop HP Pavilion a6610t CTO. According to specifications, your system came from the factory with a 250 watt power supply. Most retail graphics cards require a power supply minimum system assessment of 300 watts or greater. The Radeon HD 6570 you noted requires a 400 watt or a bigger power supply. The CX500, CX600 Corsair are highly recommended, are favorites of the forum and are known to adapt to most cases of HP.

  • Recommendation for the new graphic card for the Pavilion a1250n Office running windows xp service pack 3

    trying to upgarde my pavilion a1250n computer of office for graphics card MSI r5450 radeon. After installation of the new card in the PCI express and turn on the machine, does not start, screen goes black and the fans to run at top speed. The card and the machine starts fine with the ATI radeon 200 exprees edge. I went into Device Manager and disabled the ATI radeon 200 adapter, and the system still wouldn't start with the new card. Went into the Bios at startup and changed the setting of the adapter PCI E, the slot where I put the card, and still won't work, even with the Bios and Device Manager changes I made.

    New card right out of the box, could be bad, or perhaps not compatible with my system? If is not compatible, what would you recommend? Currently I am running windows XP SP3 and am looking for a card that can be upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit. I know that the ATI integrated graphics card cannot be upgraded, so I'd appreciate some advice really.

    Thank you.

  • Need help with the new graphics card

    So my trusty GTX 555 is finally dying after 4 years and 10 000 + hours so I looked in an upgrade and heard the GTX 960 would be a good upgrade for an Alienware x 51 R1. So I got a PNY GeForce GTX 960 Amazon and installed but when I turn on my system it passes to the BIOS screen and is there for about a minute and a half and it beeps every 30 seconds after the screen came. After the minute and a half or two then goes to a black screen and says the brand and model of graphics card in the upper left corner for about 5 seconds, then he sits on a black screen. I did something wrong?

    If necessary system specs:
    Intel Core i7 2600
    8 GB RAM
    Windows 7

    Have you updated the BIOS?

    There are several laptops Toshiba with 15 screen I think that the important point is the price because other requirements such as 2 GB RAM, 200 GB, etc are no problem. Most laptop have 4GB or more of RAM and also tough with more disk space.
    Moreover the Intel Core i3 processor is standard CPU at the moment, some models have a Core i5

    Take a look at Satellite C650, L650 and L750. These models are to fundamental factors such as Internet, music, videos and simple games.

    You can compare all models on the official page of Toshiba:

  • Pavilion p6 - 2020t: HP-Pavilion will identify the new graphics card


    I got a HP Pavilion for a few years now and never updated my BIOS (not that I know well). I'm trying to install a new graphics (gtx 750ti) card and the computer does not recognize it. It shows the first screen, and then a black screen and a beep, then it crashes. Keyboard does not work, cannot get into the BIOS.

    I tried everythign with current BIOS, boot legacy and ensuring that the Integrated GPU is disabled, and nothing works. I also did research on food, and but it is not terrible, it should work with this graphics card (the fan even spinning).

    According to my research, the current BIOS is simply not recognize, and I need to update. My current version is: FRIEND 7.16, 05/10/2011

    I navagate through the HP website and it said that the automatic update should update the BIOS for Windows 10, and it won't let me download all drivers (although the last BIOS update was 2011). I tried to enter the FRIEND's site and download it from there and it won't even install their drivers, it says that flash is not supported (probably for Windows 10).

    If someone could give me an idea of how can I get a newer version of the BIOS for my motherboard, it would be much appreciated as I'm pretty sure that's the reason why the computer is not recognizing the new graphics card

    The risk is that the video card is one that is for a newer PC with an EFI BIOS. That's why the empty card is not recognized.

    If you use a card equipped with a switch on the virtual card allowing the use in legacy and uefi BIOS it will work with the BIOS of your PC.

    Sapphire makes video cards that have this capability. Take a look at the catalogue. What you need is a PCIE x 16 card video with switchable legacy\uefi BIOS or legacy support, but not only UEFI. & lang = eng

    You cannot change the type of BIOS that your PC has in the UEFI.  It's a question of his being of a generation of diferent from the PC.

  • Pavilion p6 - 2120t: Windows will not start with the new graphics card

    Installed a Zotac GT 740 profile down in my desktop PC graphics card HP Pavilion p6 - 2120t and now the PC does not start.

    HP Pavilion p6 - 2120t CTO desktop PC

    Intel Pentium CPU [email protected]
    4.0 GB RAM
    Intel HD Graphics Driver version Family: dated 27/01/2011
    Motherboard: IPISB-CU (Carmel2) (1 open PCI Express 16 expansion slot pins)

    BIOS to Version 7.18

    Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit w/service pack 1
    Two monitors (VGA, 1 digital port 1)

    Before installing the new graphics card, I replaced the power supply original 300w with a 400w power supply.

    For starters, I disabled the onboard graphics in Device Manager. Then, I opened the case and installed the GT-740 in the open PCI Express slot. I made sure that the card was fully engaged in the slot.

    I plugged both monitors to their connections voted on the new map.

    When I tried to boot the PC, the digital monitor displays the screen HP (the one that indicates which key support to achieve the start menu) and then frozen. No other entries of key or mouse have been accepted.

    The PC then sounds 4 short beeps (about 10 seconds between each beep) and then a long beep before turning off the signal to the screen.

    Then, I removed the new graphics card on the PC that starts then. I have reactivated the original graphics drivers and the PC then worked normally.

    Tried the above process two more times with the same results.

    I then went into the start menu to look at the BIOS. The menu of the BIOS shows two options:

    > Sources of boot UEFI

    Windows Boot Manager

    > Sources of boot legacy

    ATAP I CD/DVD player


    Hard drive


    Network controller (Realtek PXE B06 D00)

    PC using UEFI Boot Manager Windows boots normally

    I have not tried Legacy Boot Sources because I don't know which one to choose.

    I went to the HP site and looked for an update to the newest BIOS, but updating them is a rev version 7.16 while my PC shows my BIOS to version 7.18

    I know that others have had a similar problem but I have not seen a solution that works for my PC.

    Any advice would be welcome.
    Thanks for your time.


    Your PC isn't spec'd to run Windows 7 using the Windows Boot Manager.  I expect to a UEFI-based graphics card likely to work on an HP PC that does not have a BIOS version 8.

    The below listed OEM HP, graphics cards should work in your PC using a normal non - UEFI W7 and W8 installation.

  • Guard application launch at the start of the appliance, also need advice for the implementation of network methods

    Hi all

    I'm new to the development of Blackberry and I'm writing a relatively simple application to run on 7.1.

    So far the development was interesting, I managed to create my user interface using resources online (mainly this forum), but today I tried to implement some of the network classes that I need and now I just met constant problems.

    I use Eclipse SDK 3.7.2 (the one that comes with the plugin RIM)

    First question:

    I'm not sure what I changed, but today I noticed that whenever I start the Simulator (by sim 9360) my application is started during the initial startup process. I don't think he did this before, but to be honest, I wasn't paying much attention. I think it starts at the start of the device is because I put a breakpoint in the constructor for my class from the main screen, which is hit before the Simulator happens even to the point where it is ready for user interaction. In addition, once it is ready, if I press the BB button, I see my registered application.

    I don't have it set to automatic start in .xml descriptior enforcement.

    I started this application on the HelloBlackBerry sample, here is my main method for the entry of the application:

    public static void main( String[] args ) {
            appSettings = AppSettings.fetch();
            // Create a new instance of the application and make the currently
            // running thread the application's event dispatch thread.
            HelloBlackBerry theApp = new HelloBlackBerry();

    As far as I know, this is the only entry point for the application.

    More code

        public HelloBlackBerry() {
            // Push a screen onto the UI stack for rendering.
            mainScreen = new ScreenHelloBlackBerry();
            pushScreen( mainScreen );

    Here is the method of. my class AppSettings fetch()

        // Retrieves a copy of the effective properties set from storage.
        public static AppSettings fetch()
            AppSettings savedSettings = (AppSettings) _store.getContents();
            return new AppSettings(savedSettings);

    Some of this code that I wrote myself, the persistence store cause the launch of my car?

    I tried to reset the Simulator to the factory settings, no change.

    All applications initialized during the startup of the device and then closed shortly after?

    Part 2: Need advice for the implementation of functions of network in the application

    I need to implement some methods that will retrieve data from a web service, and I also need to send data to this service. What I've read, the ConnectionFactory is the way to go. I want my application to make a request when the application is open and can check on a set interval. I didn't know exactly how to go about adding another thread for networking, I understand that network connections should not be created on the thread main event, so I tried to do this:

    The constructor of my class that implements screen (ScreenHelloBlackBerry), I use the following to create a modal dialog box to prompt the user for a username, I also try networking wire in the same segment of spawning:

            public ScreenHelloBlackBerry(){...initialize fields and managers, add it all together...then near the end
    //This will open the confirm dialog when the application is launched
            UiApplication.getUiApplication().invokeLater(new Runnable() {
                  public void run() {
                    //start connection - Possibly broken
                      ConnectionThread ct = new ConnectionThread();

    I don't know if it's somehow OK to do, but it seems to work for what I need. I want a user who launches the application at the prompt, and if a user switch applications, when they come back they wondered again (unless they close the app and reopen it).

    Here is my ConnectionThread:

    public class ConnectionThread extends Thread
        public void run()
              ConnectionFactory connFact = new ConnectionFactory();
              ConnectionDescriptor connDesc;
              connDesc = connFact.getConnection("");
              if (connDesc != null)
                  HttpConnection httpConn;
                  httpConn = (HttpConnection)connDesc.getConnection();
                      final int iResponseCode = httpConn.getResponseCode();
                      UiApplication.getUiApplication().invokeLater(new Runnable()
                          public void run()
                              Dialog.alert("Response code: " +
                   catch (IOException e)
                     System.err.println("Caught IOException: "
                          + e.getMessage());

    At the moment it has basically unmodified code from a sample that I found, I'll be retooling to meet my needs whenever I can make it work. I HAD this work to the point where, after the closed user confirm this dialog, a few moments later a an alert dialog appears with the 302 response code. I don't know what changed, but now it doesn't work at all, and if I try to scroll with the debugger, I can't past the httpCon.getResponseCode (). I've seen some mistakes earlier on "no record of service was set up", and I also had once a timeout exception.

    I'm sure I'm doing this wrong, but at the same time as I said WAS working, and now it is not. If someone has done this far, thank you very much for your time and advice are much appreciated.

    Also, should I try to start the thread of the network of the UIApplication class instead of the screen? There is currently very little happening in the class that extends UIApplication, do I spend most of my business logic out of the class of the screen and in the UIApplication class?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi all

    Just to conclude this topic for those who are interested, I found an excellent guide to the implementation of networks in applications of BB, click here for a link.

    About my application being started at the start of the simulator of the device, I found that on a device real this behavior is not complied with, and in addition, the behaviour seems to have stopped after uninstallation and reinstallation of my Simulator.

    See you soon,.

  • Is satellite A10 - possible to install the new graphics card?


    I have a videocard Satelite A10, 2.2 Ghz, 712 MB of RAM, provided with your computer.

    I just bought the Sims 2 and thought from the specifications that I would be able to play on my current card. However when I try to run it it gets to the intro screen and then hangs when it is ready to go into the Menu. My first impressions are that I don't have a pretty good graphics card.

    I need a 32 MB T & L capable card so can someone confirm if this is why it would not work on the system.

    If that's the case I'm looking to see if it is possible to install a new graphics card on the machine I want to play more games to date.

    the map I'm looking at is Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600 XT 256 MB AGP8X graphics card. It will work on the machine and it is likely to solve my problem?

    Thank you

    HI Jeff,

    In General, it is not possible to change the graphics card in your laptop. This is because the graphics cell are generally not a component separated (as with a normal PC), but generally a specific graphic chip attached to the motherboard so make the graphics a part of the laptop.

    At the same time, the graphics driver is normally a specially modified version will omit some of the more esoteric aspects of the normal driver to minimize the risk of overheating chip since it does not have its own cooling system. Given this, you will find probably than trying to load the latest graphic website manufacturers drivers (Nvidia, ATI, etc.) will not work, and you will therefore be limited to these pilots provided by Toshiba on their Web site.

    In order to get your copy of the SIMS 2 to run you need to omit or reduce some of the graphics settings in the game itself, or alternatively, you can try to use some of the graphics third-party drivers that are written to provide some of the omitted features of the original notebook drivers. Note that if you do that there is no guarantee that they won't cause your overheating graphics chip, even if I used the ATI Omega drivers for some time now without any problems. You can get them: -.

  • Qosmio G10 with the new graphics card and pcb - CD update tools do not work

    Hello world

    I hope you can help me. Before a few weeks, I received my Toshiba Qosmio G10 return of aid, because the laptop no longer works. So I get it back with a new graphics card and a new PCB. With my laptop I have a CD called the update tool CD and a sheet of instructions, where it says to start with this tool CD-Rom update after you have installed the Windows with the reovery CD.

    So I did, but when I know the update tool CD to put in and I start with it, the computer installs something, but after a short then it is a message that it is a different model and that I have to put a button to close Notepad. So I did it, but Windows does not start.

    Why is it so? I had done everything that has been said on the instruction sheet.

    Please help me


    It will be interesting to find more information on this CD-Rom tool update. Are there tags Toshiba? Can you please write what is described here?

  • Does not start with the new graphics card

    Hello. I have a P7-1058uk Pavilion Cleveland-GL8 motherboard with integrated graphics.

    I bought a new monitor that has resolution 2560 x 1440, equal the integrated graphics card can face if tried to to level with a Gigabyte GT630 card.

    When I start, I have now the chance to the blue HP screen but not more details. If I start with F10 or ESC key, I get a black screen instead. Whatever it is, I am asked to press ESC to enter in the start, but by pressing on the button has no effect and the computer just hangs. There is a cycle repeated very quiet click that sounds like the disk drive HARD trying to start then stop

    If I remove the graphics card and connect the monitor to the integrated graphics card then all's well again (but limited to the resolution 1920 x 1080).

    Perhaps foolishly, I assumed it was a problem with the residual power (300W) and not enough punch power to run the HARD drive. But who, after having upgraded to 650W it makes no difference. I also tried to download the NVidia drivers but it won't let me install because I can't get the computer to work without the graphics card and Nvidia install it because it cannot detect the hardware.

    Any ideas/help would be appreciated.


    You can have one of these motherboards that are not happy with NVIDIA graphics cards.

    This may sound a little weird, but it happens.

    The other possibility is that you have damaged your home x - 16 PCI Express by installing a map requiring more that the installed power supply has been able to provide.

  • How to install the new graphics card due to the absence of HDMI Port

    I have an old laptop, and I want to connect it to my HD TV. Problem with that is that I don't have an HDMI Port. I noticed on a similar question that you responded that it might be useful to consider the insertion of a new graphics card. As I have never opened a laptop before, I was wondering if it is fairly simple to do this, (as anyone who could do it) or if I'd rather pay someone to do it?

    You can use something like this:

    or Google "USB to HDMI" of many other and different price ranges. Don't forget to look at the comments of consumers before buying something like this. They all promise of greatness, but I'm sure few deliver.
