Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
Windows logo comes on, then screen goes dark. Video output on the pc was broken, so I installed a pci expansion slot video card.
Do I need to change bios? Start in safe mode?
In the bios there could be setting to disable your onboard video. Since the output was broken, see if there is an option to disable the onboard setting. If you do this and you are still having problems, I would go ahead and start in safe mode, then lower your resulution to the lowest settings till you can get the video drivers loaded for the new card that you have just bought.
