Yes. Installing a video card is somewhat easy and very beneficial also.

I will give you step wise description of all the steps needed to be taken:

1.  Uninstall all the graphics card drivers if you have any.

2.  Turn off your PC and then remove the old card from your PC's AGP slot.

3.  Insert your new card into the AGP card slot in your Motherboard.

4.  Install the new drivers needed and then you are ready to go.

There are a few simple steps to follow in installing your Video Card. The only tool you need is just a screw driver with a standard size. After turning off the computer, unplug the power cord connecting the CPU to the outlet. Unscrew one side of the side panel of your casing in such a way that you can see the components inside the Computer Unit. 

When done, insert the Video Card into its corresponding slot. AGP Video cards cannot be inserted into a Main board with a PCI-E slot and the other way around. So after inserting the Video Card, screw it tightly to the Main Board. Cover the Computer Unit and plug it in.

At the first start, install the driver from the Disc included in the box or if you don’t have the disc, you can download the driver directly from the Video Card’s Website. After installation, your Personal Computer is good to go.

It's great to have this problem here.

I have also undergone installing this sound card.

Actually setting up the system is not that much difficult to understand unless you follow the steps given.

After installing the Hardware, be sure to always TURN OFF the power because this will lead you to unintentional corruption of programs or the OS.

Sometimes the compatibility of the OS you use may differ and corrupt your system.

So, let's just make it a plug and play situation.


Insert the Sound Card ( this can be located below the Graphic Card.)

Turn your PC on.

Wait until your computer load all the programs in your system.

Go to DEVICE MANAGER (Control Panel+System and Security+System)

Or PUSH control key and pause/break button.

Click to Device Manger.

Then Find and Select the selected item below and RIGHT click.


Assuming that the DRIVER is the SOUND CARD you put.



Wait for the Response.

Then there you go.


I hope that this will help you solute the problem.

To install the video card, just follow the steps below :

1. Turn off your computer and remove the case on your CPU.

2. Remove all the screws that attach your video card.

3. Your computer either has a PCI-Express slot or AGP slot. Below is an image of the video card, and it will only fit on the video card slot, so you can’t put it somewhere else.


4. Insert the new video card into the slot. Gently press on it until it fits in the slot.

5. Connect any power connector to the back of the video card. Some video cards don’t have one, but some have one or two.

6. Turn your computer on, and you will see a BIOS message stating that a video card has been installed/changed.

7. Install the video card driver.
