I have a motherboard and it has a PCI video card slot. My problem is that I can't use my existing video card which is VGA. Is there a way for me to use my old VGA video card?

VGA video card to PCI slot



Hi James R. Wilson,

     Yes, it is possible to insert your VGA video card to a PCI slot. VGA is more to a display hardware rather than a type of slot of a video card. Since you said that it is an old VGA card, then I can assume it has an AGP slot since old video cards have AGP slots. Your video card supports VGA display rather than it has a VGA slot. Anyway, it is possible. You should buy an AGP to PCI adapter. Make sure it is PCI not PCI-E adapter. Upon installing, insert first the adapter, and then turn on your computer. Install the newly found hardware. Just follow the instructions; it should be very easy. Once you have installed it, turn off your computer, and then insert your video card to the adapter.

Hope this helps.
