I am trying to find out if there is an upgrade for this that is Vista compatible. I don't want to pay too much, the computer is an old one. I don't need it for gaming just an improvement to watch netflix, and Hulu on my computer. I have an older monitor still.
The computer is a HP pavilion 750n to which I have recently upgraded with 2gbs of memory. Vista is just using a generic adaptor and does not seem to be utilizing the present graphics card. It is not even using the monitor to its fullest capacity. The processor is a pentium 4 so I'm trying to decide which one to upgrade.
That system I believe is an AGP slot for the video card.
There should be a decent selection of cards which will work with Vista.
When I get home from the office later, I'll see if I can track you down some inexpensive selections.
How about some specs, your PC may actually be too old to run Vista even if you upgrade your video card.
I had already stated that I have Vista, Vista Basic which the Upgrade stated my computer was capable of running. I have even been rated as Premium capable but I'm not buying that. Also with Vista users with new computers had a lot of issues. After some service packs and updates from Microsoft occurring in the last half of this year improvements have been made. So I am making upgrades to the specs as the original post stated as well.
