I think i need new graphics card but how do you tell what slot you have ie PCI, PCI express, AGP.

AT presnt i have built in graphics on M/B, can get screen to work.
Check screen on another PC ok
Check Hard drive on another PC Ok
Check PSU ok
You can hear PC start up & hard drive start but no pict, M/B hs light on and procc fan works so wanted to try cheap graphics card
PC is a Time machine about 4 years old

Any advise please

Hi, what make/model motherboard do you have, though being an old Time machine it is unlikely to have PCIe.

OK, download and run SIW ...

click here

then click on Motherboard in left-hand column, this will tell you all you need to know about your mobo.

Ooops, silly me, of course you can't do that can you... Dohh

OK - so I would advise you to get a simple PCI graphics card which is pretty sure to work in your pc.

However, before that, remove and refit your memory sticks - these may have been disturbed.
