"I have very little experience with internal computer or settings. I have a dell dimension B110 with celeron D windows xp home with just a standard dell 15inch monitor. The objective here is to connect my sony 37inch lcd xbr tv screen to this computer. I have already run hdmi cable from tv to back of computer cabinet. I have a philips hdmi to dvi adapter and I have a sapphiretech ati radeon x1650 pro video card that needs to be installed. (computer has its standard video card installed at this time) this video card came from an extra computer at my office, so there is no instructions for installation of the card, nor any disk with it for installation. can you assist me in how to go about removal of standard video card, replacing with X1650 pro card and fine tuning setting for optimal use of this computer with BOTH dell standard monitor and Sony XBR lcd tv. Desire is only to be able to use the tv for the monitor when using wireless keyboard at kitchen counter and still leaving intact regular monitor at computer for use when there. Thanks !!!!"

Hello kcfromks13 Yes , it seems to be a PSU insufficiency . A new one will only cost you a little money , don' t hesitate buying at least a 400 W power unit . Indications about this should be found on the box of your video card . Check first if the correct driver has been successfully installed . Best regards fanaudi .
Yes, it is compatible, just that you must first uninstall the previous video driver, then configure the BIOS to route the video signal to the PCI and not the AGP and only then install the new card. And in the end it will behave worse than the previous AGP card you got because the PCI interface is way slower than the AGP.
Just buy a good AGP card, PCI cards are made for office pc's in which the onboard one is totally obsolete.
open left side of computer (after shutting it down and disconnecting it)locate the graphics card, its the one your monitor connect to,disconnect monitor cable from board remove little screw holding card to back frame and ease card out replace with new one put it all back together and start pc up if it asks give it the software disk that comes with new card and follow the instructions.
If the blue screen appears only if the video card is plugged in that only means it's not compatible with your computer. If you want to know what video cards you can use for that computer try to go to this link.
Hello Virna, i have that exact graphics card and dell GX270 desktop here at home, tho it has been awhile since i removed the Nvidia PCI card for a more favorable AGP card. From what i remember, first check your BIOS (hit F2 on startup) and select integrated devices, scroll down and make sure your default video output is either PCI (if available) or AUTO) exit saving changes. If that yields no result. Plug in a second monitor to your old integrated video output, if you can view windows after bootup from there, then you can install the proper Nvidia display driver for windows Xp (available here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html ). After installing, right click on the desktop, select properties, display settings tab, and make sure the Geforce card is the main monitor and the desktop monitor. Click apply, unplug the integrated VGA output, and restart. Hope this helps.
Try to disable your integrated video card in your PC's bios setting. If you have done that job already or your bios doesn't support it then clean your cards pins or tiny golden terminals with soft cloth.Check whether your card supports the mother board Graphic card slot or not . like in case of "AGP slot" speeds are 2x 4x or 8x and in case of "Pci Express Slot" 8x or 16x. Check *********** board's or main board's manual as well as EVGA's manual for compatibility issues. Hope it works .don't hesitate to contact me agian. thanks
Hi, I think you will need to run the Dell restore disk, install the orriginal drivers and use the dell system to bootup then load the drivers the ASUS drivers then close the system, install the new card and then bootup. on doing this there will be resident drivers for the new card and it should work fine, then delete the orriginal drivers.
