  1. dont ever buy a 9400GT. i just swapped one out. they're terrible for gaming. What's your budget?

    about your question: it will work if you have a PCI-E x16 slot on your motherboard. Do you? if you're not sure, telling us your motherboard would do the trick
  2. i'll take a picture of my comp inside and let u see.

    other people told me buy cos it say at least i can play some games and its cheap. around SGD$50-70
  3. well... go for the 9500GT atleast if you must. At that price i'd suggest that the 4670 is a better option. I think its cheaper (or same price) and performs a lot better
  4. i have 3 white slots. and 1 kinda orange or brown. is it that PCI-E x16??
  5. I believe agp ports are usually brown but use this to confirm what you have;

  6. Whats your motherboard? Usually P4's will have a AGP slot unless you have the Biostar P4M900-M4, lol.
  7. how do i check my motherboard?
  8. Use CPU-Z, it should tell you what motherboard you have. Also Everest should say.

    Is your computer a OEM like a Dell or HP?

    Like already said above 9400GT is nowhere near a gaming card,
  9. link to my comp: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DPGZPZD3

  13. Lol, my thoughts exactly...
  14. APG slot, the best card you can get for that today would be a 4670 from Asus I belive, or a 3870 but thats if you can find them

    so the newegg website graphic cards work on my comp?? install it at the brown slot?? and remove the green graphic card at the white slot??

    does that graphic card in newegg sell in singapore??
  16. bumpz
  17. I think the fastest agp video card is the ATI 3650.
  18. ^^ thats true i think
  19. It's not true. There are agp versions of both the HD3850 and HD4670. Those would be wasted on a Pentium 4 however and the HD3650 would be a more appropriate choice for this guy.

    I believe you do not actually have a graphics card at the moment and are using the integrated graphics built into your motherboard. You can be sure by looking to check if the monitor is plugged into that "green card in the white slot." If it's not then that's not a graphics card, it's something else like a sound or network card and should be left in your computer.
    I don't believe Newegg ships overseas so you'll have to find some place that sells to your area.
  20. okay, btw if i buy a portable dvd drive, when i insert the reformat disk. i go to boot select. which one should i click???
  21. If your motherboard allows it I believe the BIOS setting should be something like removable device/drive.
  22. if i don't have a graphic card. how i play those games?? is that green card merge together with something else?


    if my motherboard don't allows it. then means i wasted my money???
  23. Your motherboard has basic built-in graphics that is acceptable for standard computer use but (in your case) almost entirely useless for gaming.
    If your motherboard doesn't let you boot from a removable/usb device then you just can't use that drive to load an operating system. If that's specifically why you bought it then yeah you wasted your money I guess and should have bought an internal dvd drive. It should function fine for normal use however, just not loading an OS.
  24. my place don't sell internal dvd drive. if there is i would have bought it long ago. and for some reason. i can't remove the old dvd drive from my comp. the other side of the case is not opening. even if i unscrew all of the case screw....
  25. Have you checked in the BIOS? It might not be an issue.
    If it doesn't let you boot off of a removable drive then perhaps you could borrow an internal one from someone else? If you only need to install windows then it should just take a few hours. You don't even need to install it properly in a bay. Just open the side of the computer and connect the IDE cable and power.
    I know there are also IDE to USB converters but you'd have to find a place there that sells them.

    what you mean "Just open the side of the computer and connect the IDE cable and power.

    you mean there is other way to install windows??

    and how do i learn any of the internal dvd drive??
  27. I'm saying you don't need to put it into the case of the computer itself if you borrow one from a friend. Just open your computer, connect the two cables it needs to function, install windows then detach it and give it back.
    Once windows is installed your external drive should work fine.
  28. how do i plug out my friend's internal drive?
  29. its got two cables, power and either sata or ide. you just pull them out. the only issue will be if its a sata drive and your motherboard is too old to use sata devices. P4 was popular around when the standard changed.
  30. sorry, none of my friend's willing to lend me a internal drive...
  31. jyjjy, my when i boot my comp. chkdsk works. but it said my drive is "raw drive" cannot autochk.

    what does it mean??
  32. Is it a new drive? I believe that means it's unformated but I could be wrong. If it's not new what's supposed to be on it?
  33. i don't know. but when i google it. most of them can't enter their C: drive(for me is C:)

    is it the chkdsk is raw??
