Install A Graphics Card In A Desktop

Installing a graphics card to your desktop PC is simple.

Installing a graphics card on a desktop computer will drastically improve the video quality of the PC. Fortunately, even a tech newbie can install basic AGP video cards in a few simple steps.


1. Turn the computer off and remove the side panel of the desktop tower. Use the screwdriver, if necessary.

2. Locate the AGP slot on the motherboard (which has a socket aligning to the "teeth" on the video card) and insert the video card until it is firmly secured. Use the screwdriver to fasten the video card to the rear panel of the tower.

3. Secure the side panel to the tower and power-up the PC.

4. Install the new graphics drivers by inserting the CD that is packaged with the video card.
