Compatibility

I have an Asustek A7N8X-LA motherboard with a Athlon XP 2.2 ghz cpu. I just purchased a PNY gforce 8400gs 512 mb graphics card. My question is: are these two components compatible?

  1. If your motherboard is http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c00006476&lc=en and the graphics card is PCIe instead of AGP, then they are not compatible and you wouldn't be able to insert it into the slot.
  2. I have an AGP slot and PCI. No PCI-E. The card is a PCI and it fits. I had the card in the computer, and when I boot it up, it did show the stats. of the card on the screen. When I went to install a driver for it, it didn't work. I can't find the correct driver. Plus, the fan on the card had seized up. I did replace the fan. but am afraid that I can harm my computer with this card. If there is anything anybody can enlighten me to, concerning the driver, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
  3. go to nvidia webside and download the latest driver
    you dont have to find a driver for a particular card, the driver has instruction sets for all their cards
