Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

I want to upgrade Compaq Presario SR5410F with Video card GE FORCE 8600GT, 512 mb. What are the requirements of DDR Memory (Presently 1GIG AND Power Supply 200Watts). Please explain what to add and take out and the steps. Thank you. R.Kohli


Answers :

To install the 8600GT, turn off your computer, unplug the power cable going to your power supply, remove the side panel of your case, remove the current video card and firmly push the 8600GT into your PCI-Express x16 slot. Now plug in your monitor to the video card’s ports, close up your case, plug in your power cable, and turn on your machine. In BIOS turn off the built-in video and enable the PCIe slot for use. Restart. Insert the included installation CD and follow the onscreen instructions. The power supply is small but should work as long as you have not added other items. The memory is adequate and does not matter as far as adding a video card is concerned. Some games may require more memory, however.
