Hello & How?
My Video graphics card is not working. It is a ATI radeon HD 4350 with 512 MB dedicated graphics. I would like to upgrade to a better card that would fit and work with Windows 10.
The computer is a HP Pavillion Elite e9220Y desktop PC.
Please recommend a card that would work in the slot with Windows 10 and with 2 gb on board memory.
I am not that big into games, but like good resolution.
Attached is the link for the spec sheet of this computer.
Thanking you in advance,
Richard De Gannes

From that "specifications" document, you can see that different models of your computer have either a "low-profile" spine (with only 2 connectors) or a "full-size" spine (with 3 connectors, but only 2 can be used at one time).
So, that is the first consideration in your selection -- "will it fit?".
Second, which video-inputs does your monitor (or your TV) have?
No sense in buying a video-card that does not have the correct connectors.
Third, some video-adapters require more wattage than your computer's power-supply can produce.
Fourth, what is the "optimal" resolution of your monitor? Make? Model?
To have the "best" picture, your video-card needs to be capable of running at that resolution.
Fifth, what's your budget?
Answering these questions will help you make an appropriate purchase.

> This computer has a full-height ATI Radeon HD 4350 Video card and is not using integrated video.
Please try physically removing the add-in card, and connecting a DVI cable from the integrated DVI port to the DVI port on your monitor, to observe the quality of the video, before spending any money on a different add-in graphics card.
