I've got a 3 year old HP desktop and the video card has gone bad just recently. I start up the computer and after 5 minutes or so the screen just goes blank (the monitor still works so it's not that). From looking on HP support forums I've found out that it is the video card that has gone out. The current video card is a 1 GB GeForce 9600 GS, and all I want to do is replace it. However, it looks like its pretty old, and they don't make them anymore. I don't do any major gaming or anything like that, I just need something simple so I can use the computer again. I've been trying to research these newer graphics cards, but I don't know much about them. How do you know if the video card will be compatible with my computer? The computer is an HP Pavilion m9600t.
