    Im guessing you have onboard video-built into the motherboard. Just go into the BIOS and change the Video Aperature setting. But any video card will perform better than what you have. You can get one for as little as $40.

    thanks

    yes i do have on board video memory and no agp slots will a pci card work ok it is a 1.5 ghz processor, but it is also a celeron and i heard that they are not very good as far as video. How big of a card do you think i can use. and thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.
