I have an Nvidia GS 7300 graphics card. I opened my computer to add a new part to it, but it didn't fit. Then when I booted the computer up, the colors were all different. I checked, and I had lost all of my red colors (couldn't display any red). When I took the video card out, I saw that one of my pins were broken clean right off. I was wondering if it was possible to repair the pin on my video card? Or any recommendations of new, low priced video cards. I also tried to provide pictures to show you what i mean (sorry if they are low quality, I used my phone camera) My VGA cable connects on top of these pins

If you are very good at soldering, you could try soldering that, but I don't like the odds of success.

If you replace the card nothing wrong with the 7300 GS as budget card.
If you want something a bit better, the 8600 GT is a good mid range.

not very good pictures,trying to figure out if the set of pins with the broken one are on the video card or on the motherboard .a lot of times sets of pins like that are intentionally mission a pin.did you find the broken off pin!what plugs into that set of pins,also what new part did you open the case to but in and it did not fit !???

Sorry for the bad pictures. I used a quick cell phone camera (not a good idea). The pins that are broken are on the video card itself. Normally there is this wire-like thing that goes on top of it, but somehow that thing fell off when I was plugged in my video card or something, and broke the pin. To show you what I'm talking about, here is a pretty bad/simple picture of what I mean.

Red indicated the broken pin.

is this on the motherboard?
here is a suggestion, get a nail ( very small headless) cut to a size a little taller than the pin, and make sure it can fit snugg, the connect the monitor cable, works for me before until i had to get a new video card

if that picture is of your video card then where it says vga is where you plug you monitor in and the card fits into either a pci or agp slot on the mother board .

i dont see any pins on you card ,

Well to be specific about the video card I'm using, I'm using a Axle Geforce 7 series 7300GS video card, which would explain why it looks different than the picture you provided.

Thats what my video card looks like. The pins are under this little black piece thing which protects them. But apparently it is fairly loose and doesn't stick on too well.

you might not be able to fix it unless you are very skill with soldering and you have the broken pin, i suggest you got for a DVI/VGA adapter. if you apply heat to the card who kow hat else might not work
