Hi, I've got an Inspiron 9150 which must be about 14 years old now and my Nvidia Geforce 7900 GS has just given up. I believe it is PCi express. I know the unit is old but I am in love with it - it's silent, powerful, smooth and I use it in the classroom to project classes and films. I would like to find a cheap compatible card, preferably with a fan and HDMI support in order to carry on using this machine but things have evolved so much I am unsure of what I can put inside, especially as I think this model is low power compared to newer PCs. Would this be an acceptable model? https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B071L9NX28/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1AT7YVPFBWXBL&psc=1 Thanks

Taking into consideration my geographical location in Europe, and the fact that I will be doing absolutely no gaming, I was just going to try something super light like the Gigabyte GT210 or GT710. They have HDMI and DVI outputs. What worries me most to be honest is Windows XP drivers as I am still on the original Windows. I would appreciate ANY advice. Thank you.
Thanks again. I just want something simple to connect the monitor and projector and I've seen some cheap passive PCIe GPUs. I am aware I have to find something backwards compatible to PCI 1.1. 
Thank you for your answer. My PC is a DIMENSION 9150 - predecessor of the XPS desktops and probably about 13 years old. I believe the NVIDIA GS 7900 IS PCI express, so am I correct in assuming that I... See more...
Thank you for your answer. My PC is a DIMENSION 9150 - predecessor of the XPS desktops and probably about 13 years old. I believe the NVIDIA GS 7900 IS PCI express, so am I correct in assuming that I can just swap it out with another graphics card? Thanks again!

Hi, the problem so far. This morning I started my PC as normal, an old Dell with NVIDIA 7900GS card. The splash screen shows up fine but once Windows loads, nothing, the screen goes black. I can hear (and see when I open the unit up) that the PC is running well, but no signal arrives to the monitor. So I started the PC in Safe Mode - restored to another configuration etc etc - but to no avail. I start the PC in VGA mode and it works well. From there I uninstall the graphics driver and when I restart, the PC works perfectly (after reinstalling the drivers automatically). However, restarting the computer leaves me back at square one - a black screen. Now I'm guessing that it's probably the GPU ... but I want some sort of verification or solution if possible.   Thank you.
Thank you very much.
That's what I feared, Thanks for the help. Would increasing from 4 to 8gb make a lot of difference? Is there any preference to which DDR3 1066/1333 MHz SODIMM ram or is any fine? 1.5 volts or lower is... See more...
That's what I feared, Thanks for the help. Would increasing from 4 to 8gb make a lot of difference? Is there any preference to which DDR3 1066/1333 MHz SODIMM ram or is any fine? 1.5 volts or lower is my guess. Thanks again.

Hi, got a L501X XPS laptop - 3 years old at least and really wanted to know what the MAX RAM I can install is. Some doubt on net. Mine is the M460, 2.53 Ghz with Win 7 Premium. I'm hoping to install 16gb but I fear the max is 8. Thanks for your help.
