I have 2 PCs that im trying to get running for our yard sale coming up,
The first one is a Gateway Essential 500c,
This one has integrated graphics, and no AGP slot (all of the spare graphics cards i have are very old and AGP), and i know for sure by using the process of elimination, that the power supply, RAM, all drives, CPU, and i even checked the battery, and none of those are the problem,
Is it safe to go ahead and buy an old PCI graphics card or could it be something else?
Now, on the next pc,
This is also a gateway, and this one has an AGP slot,
And this machine has the same problem, however, on this one i can change the graphics card, and i tried several working graphics card on this one and sill no luck, and again, process of elimination, i eliminated power supply, RAM, cpu, battery and all that,
Since i currently have no PCI graphics cards that are extra,
It could be that the AGP slot is somehow bad, it has been sitting in my basement in the dust for a long time.
Can anyone help me?
