Video Card for a HP Compaq dc5700 small factor

HP Recommended
Hello, I'm looking for a video card that will work in a HP Compaq dc5700 small factor computer. When trying to install a video card I get a error saying the cpu only supports Add 2 video cards. Can someone tell me or link a Add 2 card that will work in this type of computer? Would this work http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-256-P1-N399-LX-e-GeForce-256MB-Graphics/dp/B000V4PYTC

SP, here is the 'Hardware Reference Guide' for the computer.  If you go to the section titled 'Hardware Upgrades', there is an explanation of the ADD2 cards.  The explanation says that the slot looks like PCI Express, but will not support the standard PCIE cards.  Therefore, the card in the link that you provided will not work.  Here is a HP ADD2 card that should work.

Hi,

 

I have similar problem. I have DY674A adapter installed on my DC5700 but I cannot connect second monitor because it has VGA cable. Is there any other adapter or can I use VGA to DVI adapter?

 

Thanks

Hello mustaficharis,

You should be able to get any DVI to VGA adapter and use the monitor as normal. Since the DY674A is compatible with your machine you should be fine with any compatibility issues.

Hi,

 

as far as I could see on hp website, it is not possible to connect dvi-d with vga. I found it on this web page http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=bph03739&lang=en&cc=us&conten...

Despite that, I have tried using DVI to VGA adapter but the screen says no signal input. As I could understand DVI-D sends only digital signal and that is the reason why it is not working. If it was DVI-I (sends digital and analog signal) it would be working.

 

Correct me if I am wrong?

You are right, your card is a pure digital card:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12008_na/12008_na.HTML
Btw. a dvi2vga adapter shouldn't fit at the card.
The pins for the analog signals will find no holes at a dvi-d port.
See wikipedia:

Hello mustaficharis,

You are correct I overlooked the fact it was a DVI-D, my apologies. Since you have a DVI-D port then you have to go to another DVI connector and VGA will not work (as you have already noticed).

I believe your simply installing that card into the ADD2 only slot, which is slot# 4, its a PCI related slot... but specifically for ADD2 cards....
