So my computer's intergrated video card is not working and I have no warranty. Moniter isn't getting any signal.

If I purchase a new video card will I be able to use it without having to get a new motherboard?

It's an HP Pavilion model p6310f.

Will it be better to just buy a new computer? If I'm not able to use a new graphics card on it.


If getting a new graphics card is worth it, what is the best one I can get and the PSU i will need. Here are the specs.


Processor Type: AMD Athlon II 630 Quad-Core
Hard Drive Size: 1TB & Up
Processor - Clock Speed: 2.8GHz
Multimedia Drive: Yes
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Monitor Size: N/A
Graphics Type: NVIDIA GeForce 9100
Resolution: N/A
System Ram: 6gb
Primary Color: Black
Model No.: HP P6310F



Thank you.

The reason it broke is that my dad dropped it on Its side while moving it... *sigh*

How far was it dropped? Does it make any noise when you turn it on?

Is the computer even booting up? Damaging the Integrated Graphics Adapter by dropping the computer on its side, would be difficult to do unless the Plug that the Video Cable itself is broken. I would suspect that there would be other damage, or at least Components jarred loose that might keep the computer from starting up. Such as Power Connections to the Motherboard, Ram jarred loose.

The computer does boot up and I able to hear the windows sound when booting. I know it is the video card because of the problems I was having with it before.
