Since you did not get a drivers disk with the card then we can try Drivermax.

Download DriverMax and have it scan your system. It will open their website with all the out of date drivers you can update. With the free version you can update only 2 drivers per day so if you have a lot of them it will take a few days to get everything updated. I have been using it for about 4 months now and like it better then any other utility out there for keeping my drivers up to date.

If you are running a add on video card then there is no need to update the onboard video driver since you are not using it.

Using DriverMax will tell you if your current driver is out of date and needs to be updated.

I have been using DriverMax for 3 months now and it does a excellent job in finding the newest drivers for all your hardware.
If there is a newer driver for your integrated graphics it will find it for you.

Not sure why it says that as I have sent a couple of people there in the past 2 days and they had no problem downloading it.
I will wait to see if you get it later to work.

If your system is exactly what the specs show on the HP site then no I doubt it meets the minimum requirements.
Do you know what your total memory is that is installed? If not please do the following.
Push and hold the Windows key on keyboard. This is the one with the Microsft windows logo on it.
While holding Win key down click on the Pause\Break key

This should open the System properties window
On this window it will show

System info:

Microsoft Windows: type and version
Service Pack number

Registered Name
Register Number

Computer:
CPU type
Memory
I need all the above info in your next reply Except for Register name and number.
This is private and we don't need to know this information

512Mb of Ram


Yeah this is bare minimum for the OS and a few programs. I need to see what the free memory is so can you do the following for please.




Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"
