I currently have PCI slots in my computer (HP PAvilion a1120n) and I want to upgrade to PCI Express. How do I go about doing this?

Buy a new computer . Pci and Pci-e are totally different animals. Your Motherboard doesn't have a pci-e slot or support for it.

That's right. It's called PCI-Express for a reason. PCI is something totally different.

I know that they are completely different, I was just wondering if I could add a slot into it.

I was thinking about buying a new computer anyway. This is an old computer. Thanks.

You can't add slots. They are soldered into the motherboard.

The reason I want to upgrade is because my most recent graphics card crapped out. The card is actually fine, the fan on it just broke. Do you know if I could get the fan fixed or if I have to buy a whole new card. (It's a GeForce 8400 GS 512 MB).

It's more costly to fix most electronics stuff than what it's worth. depends what's wrong with the fan.

The 8400GS is a crappy card, so it's fitting that it "crapped out".

It's crappy, but it let me play the games I wanted to online just fine. I'm a cheap b---tard.
