That is the ID given by Everest and the name of the motherboard is:

MSI gamila/Giovani/Neon series


My friend is interested in a new video card but its hard to find the expansion slot... Everest and CPU-z did not give any information on the video card slot or anything and its ticking me off. He wants a new video card and I can't tell him what to look for.

Please help! :whistling:

Edit: Also he says, what kind of RAM can it take? Please if anyone knows the specs of this motherboard please help!

Although I don't know the spec of the motherboard, usually, an AGP slot is brown, a PCI-E slot is blue.

Crucial have a system scanner which will offer a few examples of Graphics Cards your friend can upgrade to, as well as what type of memory to use.

Does the motherboard look like this one?

If it does it has a 4X agp slot and can take either PC2700 or PC3200 memory. The first year models used PC2700.

It might be, I'll ask him to check, all I know to is he has a Celeron D CPU.

Something is weird... Crucial names the computer he has as a Compaq Presario SR1103WM and says he has AGP, yet the specs on HP's website says different... http://h10025.www1.h...c00191902&lc=en

It says PCI only so I thought this card...

It could well be that there is no AGP slot. A lot of the H-P's and Compaq's had variations of standard MB's that did not have the AGP slot even tho there was a space for it. I have 2 almost identical H-P vectras VL400's that one has agp the other doesn't.

That card is the best you can do with a PCI slot.
