    I tried doing just that but the computer would not recognize the cd. The
    problem is that I cannot get any screen what ever I do. Could the 480
    watt powers supply have been to strong for something? How would one know if something has been destroyed?

Is there nothing at all on the screen? If you are seeing nothing at all, I'm guessing the new graphics card is not working. Try an old card to see if something shows up. BTW, having a 480 watt power supply shouldn't affect anything. It just allows you to power more things.

Are you possitive your motherboard support this card? check the documentation for your motherboard and double check.
use another video card, one that would allow you to see the screen, go into your bios and disable the onboard video then try again with the gforce 6200 agp graphics card.

You will need to flash the graphics bios of you comp. Put the CD that you got along with the Card and reboot your computer and then follow the onscreen instructions to flash it.

Let me know if you need more help!

Sai.

Help with upgrading Dell Dimension 4600 GPU


June,

The Dell Dimension 4100 Desktop PC, utilizes an AGP slot on the motherboard, for a graphics card.

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/17152514/17275500.aspx

There are different styles of AGP expansion slots.
The one on your motherboard was the last current style of AGP -

AGP 8X

Therefore your Dimension 4100 uses an AGP 8X graphics card.
It is (Was) an Nvidia GeForce FX5200 graphics card, and the AGP 8X style.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

To replace it just use a graphics card that is AGP 8X, and is better, or equivalent to the GeForce FX5200.

You also need to know that your Power Supply in your computer, will handle the power requirements for the computer system, AND your new found AGP 8X graphics card.

Power Supply was rated, at a maximum Wattage rating of 200 Watts.
Problem is; that back in the day when the Dimension 4100 was made, the Power Supply manufacturer 'Fudged' the real Wattage specifications.

Power was (Is) more like 60 to 70 percent of what is stated.
Divide 200 Watts by 10
= 20
Now take that times 6, for 60 percent.
= 120 Watts
Now take that times 70, for 70 percent.
= 140 Watts
ACTUAL power

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4410189&CatId=2234

I would recommend this one, but it requires 250 Watts MINIMUM,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=853908&CatId=2234

[Graphics card manufacturers, base the Minimum power requirements for their graphics cards; based on a test computer system.

So the Minimum power requirement stated, is not only for the graphics card; but ALSO the rest of the computer.
The test computer system is usually based, on all of the top of the line, power consuming hardware components; of that time

Top of the line powerful Processors, and Motherboards.
Add to that the maximum amount of Ram Memory, that can be used.
Two optical drives, (CD/DVD drive)
Processor fan, and at least two computer case fans ]

KNOW THIS:

A) FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer, and BEFORE taking any new parts out of their Anti-Static bags, or cartons.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF, you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return

B) Windows running on your computer, PUT the Installation disk that comes with the graphics card, in your optical drive tray.
(CD/DVD drive)
Install ALL software.

There will be Drivers you are installing, and also a graphical user interface. (GUI)
The GUI for an Nvidia graphics card, (Evga GeForce 6200 is an Nvidia card), is the Nvidia Control Panel.

(For ATI it's Catalyst Control Center)

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

In this case the device is the graphics card.
What version of Windows operating system was not stated.

-> AFTER <- you have installed the software, and if it asks you do you wish to restart your computer; the answer is -> NO

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Now turn the computer off normally.

Follow Anti-Static Procedures, and Physically install the graphics card.
Note*
The AGP expansion slot on the motherboard, will have a type of Locking Arm on it. With most the end of the arm, has a 'fingerdip' in it.
Makes it look as though you press DOWN, on the end of the Locking Arm, in order to release it. (Unlock)

Actually you GENTLY pull up a little on the PLASTIC Locking Arm, to release it.
Release to remove the old graphics card, and to install the new one.

After the new graphics card is installed, attach the monitor cable to it, and close the computer case.
Turn the computer on.

You MAY have to go into the Nvidia Control Panel, and set Screen resolution, and other parameters.

(Look up your monitor by it's manufacturer name, and model number. {Back of monitor - Model Number}
See what the Screen resolution is.
Example - 1280 x 800 pixels

Set Color quality to High (32 bit)

Have additional questions please post in a Comment, or Reply.
(Below my solution)

[When a device is installed on a computer with Windows, Windows will 'break it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.
This = NO
A Driver Conflict can result.

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

With THE drivers installed first, Windows will find them.

Installed a Graphics card EVGA 6200 AGP 8X in my PC HP Media Center PC m370n now keeps showing failure notice


Did you install the drivers for the Graphics Card before you plugged the card into the computer? If not, remove the graphics card and reboot using your old video connection, install the driver then install the card and plug your monitor into the newly installed card. If you still have an issue try booting into safe mode.

Does This Graphics Card Work With My Dell Inspiron 530s Even Though My Power Supply Is Only 250 Watts? Will my computer work with this card even though the PSU is only 250 watts?...


I think you're asking for trouble. The specs at the link you gave recommend at least a 300-watt supply. By the time you figure in the normal load of everything else in the system, there probably won't be enough power from the 250-watt supply to let the card work reliably, and may affect overall system operation. One of the problems with small form-factor computers is that they often use a proprietary power supply to fit the case, and you can't replace it with anything larger. This limits expansion capability. I'd suggest saving your money.

Are there any video cards that you can use to upgrade the 530g? I have seen posts that the power supply is an issue. If it is possible is it a matter of installing the card and disabling the onboard...


Your pc has a special graphics expansion port - AGP x8

You can insert any graphics cards which will fit the port. Check carefully, there are quite a few different types of graphics port.

Once inserted, boot up the PC, and insert the disk you should get with the card, it will have all the relevant drivers.

There should be no need to alter the bios settings, the new card will be identified by the boot process.

If power supply does become an issue, you will need to upgrade the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

I have a HP dc7600 SFF. Tried to Install 2 graphics cards no vid


The dc7600 SFF only comes equipped with a 240 watt power supply. I think this may be causing your problems.

I am currently looking for a graphics card for the same comp with the HIS ATI HD 4350 in mind, but the website states that a 300 watt power supply is recommended.

ATI Radeon 1650x Problem in Installation


This one is simple, the computer's stock powersupply which is probally at about 250 or 180 watts isnt generatiing enough power to the Vcard. Basically you need to purchase a higher watt power supply, you can get a decent 400+ watt for under 40 dollars almost anywhere.  Just a simple swap will do the trick.
