So Yesterday I found this ATI A7000/t/64mb/A graphics card and I tried to install it in my pci slot (orange colour) So after I did the procedure I turned my pc on and then installed the drivers. Next I restarted and went to the Bios and enabled inuit boot pci slot first. So next I turned my pc on and then the whole thing started to lag. The screen started to disotort. And there was a message saying that the driver did not follow the graphics accelator's instruction and the Vpu closed the graphics accelator.
(everything went fine untill I logged in). So I am stuck with the intregated graphics card. I really need that card so if anyone could help...... (alos as shown in the picture the card has that golden strip divide into three parts with 2 slits cut but the slot had only one barricade that went into the first slit form the back. There was another slot but I had my Vx 5.1 creative sound card there and the slot wast to close to the casing for the graphics card to be able to fit.)
 

The a7000 is an agp card and 64 mb

I use windows xp sp 3

my intregated graphics card is intel 82845G 64mb

I have 512 mb of ram

My hard disk is about 37 gb of

I have an intel pentium 4 at 2.3 GHz clock speed

I haven't upgraded since 2001

I have two slots an agp and a pci

the rest are in the detailed version

 

Here are the detailed specs

Please explain what you mean by "found this card".  If the card was laying around it might have been defective from the start.

Oh that card was my primary one untill my cousin changed my mother board as the previous one was faulty or so he thinks.... (my cousin used to fix our pc before he got really busy. And so he kept the card safely in a box that I found out some days before.

If it looks like the one you pictured, it does not use a separate power connection from the power supply.

 

Wish I could help you further, but if you plugged it into the AGP slot and not the PCI slot :wink:....  then I am at a a loss.

So as TNF stated the card needs no power supply and the pc seems to work fine with the intel card untill I try to use the a7000
