I have a radeon HD 4350 video card for my hp compaq dc7600 that I want to install.  The instructions seem pretty simple, but I have never installed anything but memory before, in another computer.  Are there problems I might have?  Any help would  be much appreciated.

If this is your computer it is a small form factor.

 

There is one PCI-E x16 low profile slot.  Fortunately the Radeon HD 4350 is a low profile board.

 

You have a 365W PSU, so that meets the power requirements.

 

Installing it should be pretty straight forward, although it looks like it will be small space to work in.

 

I see where hamluis helped you with information regarding this card the 28th of last May.

Yes, he did. Mine is the Minitower.  I am just a little nervous about actually installing the card, but I've read all the instructions, so I'm going to go ahead with it.  Thanks a lot.

Your more than welcome.

 

There is one thing that you should be aware of, electrostatic discharges can kill pc board components.  To avoid this simply touch the metal of the case before you touch anything inside.

 

Take you time with the installation, and don't forget to install the driver.

Ok thanks.  I actually have a wrist band that clips to the computer case.

What??? No ankle straps and smock? :hysterical:

 

Actually, I worked in an environment which required all three items.  You don't want to see very expensive integrated circuits get killed with no more the 10V.
