Graphics card issue

Hi:

 

You are pretty limited with what graphics cards you can install in that model because of the 240 W power supply.

 

I recommend either of these cards for your PC:

 

1. AMD Radeon HD 6450 low profile.

 

2. nVidia GT 610 low profile.

 

Either of these cards will work with the 240W power supply your PC has, as they both draw less than 30 Watts of power.

 

Make sure you buy a card that is low profile, and that it comes with the low profile mounting brackets in the box.

 

Remember to first uninstall the Intel video adapter and driver in the device manager and shut down the PC before installing a new video card.

 

After you install the new video card, if it has an HDMI port (most of them do nowadays), you will need to go into the advanced BIOS settings, find the onboard audio setting.

 

It will be set to disabled.  Change the setting to enabled.  Save the setting there, and again when you exit the BIOS and the onboard audio will be restored.
