He's tried a different monitor.

What is the model number of your Compaq Chad?

OK. Your model has an available PCI Express slot for a video card.

What are you doing mainly with the computer? Playing games, watching videos, surfing the web?

If playing games, which ones?

Nope, haven't played any games, at least yet. Mainly just surfing the web and sometimes watching videos.

Ok.

A good general use video for you would be a VisionTek Radeon HD 2600PRO for $42.99. It's not the greatest at gaming. but it offers much improved graphics over your current on-board video and it wont break the bank.

For a little better gaming capability, a ZOTAC GeForce 8600GT 256MB for $65.99 will work nicely with your system

Alright. Thanks. So, if I buy one of these, it'll be easy enough for me to do it by myself without sending it to a computer place and spending even more money?

Yup it should be. It's not very hard to install a video card. Plus, you have plenty of help right here.

This will give you a general idea of whats involved: Installing Devices - Video Card
