Dell gx280 wont run I installed new video card in pci e slot


I had exactly the same problem on my friends Dell GX280. It will only let you use the onboard card or the new radeon card not both together. In the end we had to buy a Radeon card that was made specifically for two monitors and disable the onboard card on BIOS. It would not let us use the two seperate cards in unison.

How do I replace the video card in my Dell Optiplex GX280 computer?


There are two black button of the sides near the back. Press both in and lift the top upwards. It is hinged at the front and opens like a book. The GX280 has a built-in video card.

Check to see if it has another by checking the PCI slots for a card with the monitor's plug on the rear. (You can check without opening the computer by opening the Device Manager. Make sure View has "show hidden" selected. Under Display, look to see what is listed. More than one, means you have a card installed in addition to the built in card.

Remove the second card or a blank if there is no second card. Insert the new video card. Close the unit and restart. If you have a CD with the video card, install it when prompted.

Good Luck

Increase the amount of shared video dell gx280


Hello!

Don´t lose time for that, I think that you have integrated grafik in own chip, and they have same options with 1 or 64 MB, option in bios, that isn´t a standard shared grafik. Try AGP card if you have a socet for that.

Dell Optiplex GX280 Video Card Install Problem


You hit that one right on the dot.  ATI website showed the specs for that graphics card you installed as needing a 300 Watt power supply.  Good news though... I researched newegg.com and I believe I found your 300W power supply.  There are 4 different Optiplex gx280 designs with 4 completely different power supplies.  Since you bought the low-profile video card, I believe you have the slim computer case and this power supply should work for you...

Upgrading graphics card onto gx280 motherboard


You need to find a "PCI Express" video card. Your Motherboard does not have an AGP slot. There are lots of them to choose from. Better to pay more now and get more memory on the video card than to regret the purchase and buy another one. IMHO

Hi there
hey if you boot into bios and under the video section change the graphics from pci to agp or vice versa what ever your case may be than save and reboot ( f10 ) you can also go into device manager and uninstall your graphics card and restart the computer and it will reinstall the card and set the graphics for you

Pci-e question


Hi

I am afraid Dell OptiPlex GX260 has no support for PCI-e.

You can however install a half-length AGP (66MHz) graphics card.
