Go here, download the tool, save a report and post it here.

I cannot figure why the only info you have is "Acer". :confused:

Just download the program from a website, double click it to extract the files (if it is a compressed .zip file) and choose where you want to save the files to (pick your desktop). Then open up that folder and double click cpu-z and it runs the program.

There is nothing listed under "Graphic Interface" in the "Mainboard" Tab. It is "greyed out". What does this mean?

Graphic Interface
(boxes are grayed out and no writing is in them)

What kind of slot (PCI, PCI-E, etc.) do I have?

0

just tell us what kind of dell (what model), and we can tell you what kind of graphics card your computer can support. most likely though, if your computer doesnt have a graphics card in it now, it probably wont support anything besides the basic pci.

Well congrats! you have pci express! :)

This link tells about all the basic info of your computer. Also, the reason some stuff was grayed out on cpu-z is most likely it was a newer board that they did not add into the program yet.

You can double check this data by opening up the side of the computer case and looking at the motherboard. You should see something like this http://www.viaarena.com/images/articles/pcie 002.jpg if you have pci express. If you wanted to upgrade to a dedicated graphics card, you could install one in the pci-e 16x slot.

Hope this helps :)

i got a dimension 3100 do i have a PCI-E slot?

lol this might be kinda late but

Number of PCI-Express x16 Slots: 1 Number of PCI-Express x1 Slots: 1 Number of PCI Slots: 2

yes the dimension 3100 does have pci-e

0

By the way the dells have a crappy design. Many good graphics cards need two slots (one for the card, one for the fan) but dell put the PCI-X x16 at the end so theres no slot cover for the fan.

Hey guys, i downloaded CPU-Z but under graphics interface, it is greyed out. What do i do to find out whether i have PCI-16x??? Can u help me out???

0

Well the easiest way that i know of, is to look at your motherboard next to the slot in question.
To the side in small black writing it should say if it is PCI Express x16 or not.

Hey everyone. I am attaching a picture of my motherboard. Can someone tell me whether i have PCI-E 16x. I do have PCI-E 1x. But I donot know whether i have PCI-E 16x. And please tell me if 8800GTS 320 MB graphics card will be able to work? Thanks.....

Well if it was PCI-E x16 it would have the x 16 written there, so best bet is that you only have standard PCI express.
It really is a case of try it and see! If you can go into your local tech store, or if you are going to buy this in a shop, you could bring your computer with you and ask them to try it in your machine, just to make sure it works. I'm sure they will be happy to help you.

Not always the case, mine is a black slot and has PCI Express x16 printed alongside it.
So seeing as yours only says PCI Express, i don't think it is x16 speed.
Check with a computer expert shop and they will advise you further.
