I'm a bit uncertain with the vocabulary here. My mom has an HP Pavilian w/ an integrated AMD Radeon HD 6530D graphics. Does term 'integrated' mean that it is physically part of the motherboard? I'd like to remove her graphics and replace it with a newer graphics card and reuse her graphics card, if there is one, in my even older computer.

 

Will her card, if there is a removable one, work in my Dell E520? My Dell has a PCI Express (x16) port. I am also running Windows 8.1. She has Windows 7.

 

Thanks for any help.

If the video card in your mom's computer is integrated that means it is physically attached to the mainboard and does not come off.  If it is discreet (not physically attached, then you May be able to take it out and put it in yours.  There may be power issues here as your older pc may not be able to power the graphics card.

The AMD Radeon HD 6530D is a integrated GPU.  This is soldered to the motherboard.  You will not be able to use it.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
