There are four different series of Compaq Evo D510

Compaq Evo D510 Convertible Minitower

Compaq Evo D510 e-pc

Compaq Evo D510 Small Form Factor

Compaq Evo D510 Ultra-slim Desktop

If you don't know which series you have....

If it's a HP or Compaq computer.....
Go here:
Scroll down a bit.
Look for the similar label on the outside of your computer.
Quote the specific Model number
Quote the Product number (P/N)

HP has no graphics drivers in the support for Compaq Evo D510 Convertible Minitower for the 82845 onboard video for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8.

Compaq Evo D510 Convertible Minitower

Your computer was probably first released in 2002 - Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 didn't exist then.

When you find no drivers for Windows 8, ones for Windows 7 will probably work; when you find no drivers for Windows 7, ones for Windows Vista will probably work, but in this none of those is there.

I looked on the Intel web site.

There are no graphics drivers listed for Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit there for the desktop Intel 845 main chipset, therefore they're built into Windows 7.

If they're built into Windows 7, then they're built into Windows 8.

However, you MUST install the main chipset drivers after having installed the operating system from scratch.

Intel® Chipset Device Software (INF Update Utility)

AFTER you have installed those......

When Found New Hardware pops up, allow Windows to automatically search for the onboard graphics drivers in Windows.

NOTE that I'm assuming that you DO NOT have a graphics card installed in an AGP slot.
If you DO,
- the onboard video is automatically disabled by the bios when you install the AGP card - you need the video drivers for the video chipset on that card - they may or may not be built into Windows 8.
- if the AGP video card's video chipset supports 2X AGP mode as well as 4X or 4X / 8X mode, you will get NO VIDEO from it and your mboard's AGP slot circuits may be DAMAGED if you install such an AGP card !.

"Specs: Windows 8, p4 2.4 ghz 1gb ddr1 "

Your computer will probably run Windows 8 relatively slowly.

I recommend that you install more ram....

If Windows 8 is 32 bit, install two more gb, if you can.
If Windows 8 is 64 bit, install the maximum amount of ram that you can install.

That's the original Intel Extreme chipset, which will not work with Win8. Intel Extreme Graphics weren't even fully DirectX 7 compliant.

Unlike Windows 7, which could shift back into a WinXP-like mode of operation when used with a DX7 or 8 video card, Win8 requires a DX9 graphics card in order to use any hardware acceleration. Otherwise, everything will be done on the CPU, which with a 2.4 P4 will be rather slow.

Windows 8 Release Preview System Requirements

"...Windows 8 Release Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and Windows 7"

Windows 8 won’t require any more hardware than Windows 7

If Windows 8 won't install built in drivers for your onboard video, if your mboard has an AGP slot, you may need to install an AGP card that has a video chipset that supports DirectX 9 or higher

However, depending on which series you have, the wattage capacity of your power supply may severely limit which video cards you can install.
The Compaq Evo D510 Convertible Minitower series has only a 220 watt power supply capacity.

There are very few video chipsets that will work fine when your system has only a 220 watt power supply. You might be able to get away with one a recommended 250 watt power supply is specified for.

Your power supply must have at least the minimum capacity required to support a system with the graphics card you are using installed, or the max graphics card you might install in the future.
(Onboard video - video built into the mboard - IS NOT A CARD ! )
If that info is not in the ad for the video card, you can go to the video card maker's web site and look up the specs for the model - often under system requirements - the minimum PS wattage, and, more important, the minimum amperage the PS must supply at 12v is stated. If you don't find that, any card with the same video chipset including any letters after the model number has very similar minimum PS requirements. Some power supplies have two or more +12v ratings - in that case, add those ratings to determine the total +12v current capacity.

Radeon X1300, X1300Pro, X1300SE, X1300XT;
GeForce 5200, FX 5200, 7200 GS (250 watt PS)

Radeon HD 2400 (200 watt PS)

I have no experience with Win8 (yet) but Win7 will run poorly on that system, especially with only 1GB RAM. If you upgrade to 2GB, which is the max for your system, Win7 should run reasonably well as long as you install the 32-bit version. You'd probably be better off with XP or one of the Linux distros. Regardless of which you choose, you should install a "real" video card & get off the crappy Intel graphics.

Please start your own topic by clicking on the Start a discussion button.

Provide information about your computer

Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.

The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.

The specific model of a brand name system is often shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site and loading a program they have available, if Windows is still working, on the subject computer.

Provide as many details as you can think of regarding your problem

Windows 8 was desgned to be able to be compatible with software desgned for Windows 7.

If there are no Windows 8 drivers available, Windows 7 drivers should work fine .
If there are no Windows 7 drivers available, Vista drivers should work fine.

You MUST install video drivers the proper way. DO NOT have Windows install drivers when Found New Hardware pops up.

You must install the proper drivers - for either Windows 7 or 8 32 bit or Windows 7 or 8 64 bit, whatever version of Windows 8 your computer has.

You should ALWAYS have video while booting the computer BEFORE Windows loads in any case. If you don't, you have a hardware problem.(or you have a desktop computer that supports Hybrid video, you're trying to use a video card installed in a slot that is not supported by that feature, and you must change settings in the bios Setu)p.
