It would appear from the advice that I have received on here etc., that the video card in my three year old Dell Dimension 5150 is cream crackered. Specifications: Microsoft windows xp media center edition with service pack 3 Intel Pentium 4 cpu 3.00ghz 2.99 ghz 1.00GB ram Sorry don't know anything about the PSU :-( Any help in a replacement would be appreciated, and I should have also added that my daughter uses the pc to play The Sims 2 plus all seventeen add-ons.
yes, it's quite simple really. Switch off PC, open side panel, disconnect & take out the old, and insert the new carefully, ensuring it is seated correctly. There should be a locking lug also so make sure this is in place on the new card. Just a small bit of white plastic which stops the card becoming loose. The power connectors should be self explanatory.
I think the 4350 might do you if cost is an issue.
Once installed, go to the ATI site and dl the latest catalyst control centre complete with drivers. These should self install if you hit 'run' after dloading. Good luck with it.
