Install A Video Card

A video card is a computer component that assists the computer's main processor and RAM with rendering and displaying 3d graphics. If you want to play computer games, you will need a decent video card installed on your computer.


1. Turn off your computer.

2. Unplug the cords.

3. Open the case with a screwdriver.

4. Locate the appropriate expansion slot for the card by comparing the size of the card's gold tipped connectors with the size of the expansion slots.

5. Take off the slot cover. A slot cover at the back of the case should be removed by taking out a single screw.

6. Install the card. Align the video card and push it into the slot with moderate pressure until the connectors sink, or pop all the way into the slot.

7. Connect power to the card if necessary. Some card PCI express cards require additional power cords.

8. Close the case, plug in the cords, and power on the computer.

9. Install drivers from the CD that came with the video card and restart.
