I tried to identify it with the serial number on Asus website but it find nothing, the GPU if from an AMD 64 bits CPU computer at the beginning of 64 bits support on Windows XP

What could I do without using another computer to identify it ?

Seem like an ASUS 512MB NVIDIA 8400GS Low Profile Version but the vga port is a s-video port and the s-video video port is an hdmi port ... (almost identical)


Right sticker on the back :

HP P/N 5188-8905 C78S906-11593

Up-left sticker on the back :

S/N : 78C0AIC51916

Down little sticker on the back :

?00 C78S906- 09287- 60-C1D0EZ- A03 000

Good start with the pics - any ID Codes on the stickers as the pics are not that close-up. An FCC ID code would be great –  Linker3000 Sep 1 '11 at 22:40
Any serial numbers, it's still quite hard to identify –  Sandeep Bansal Sep 1 '11 at 22:49

Exactly it thanks to you !!! –  zillion Sep 2 '11 at 0:08

Since this is a guessing game, I think my research narrowed it down to an ASUS 512MB NVIDIA 8400GS Low Profile Version

And from your pictures, it doesn't seem there is a HDMI port on that card.

I could assure you that the second port is an hdmi port, it's even writen ... –  zillion Sep 1 '11 at 23:05
Guess I was mistaken and it's the Ranger 200 Version –  Sandeep Bansal Sep 1 '11 at 23:43
