Geforce 6800 Xtreme AGP

I just put in a new Geforce 6800 Xtreme AGP 256mb video card into my Dell 260 Optiplex with 512mb Ram, and when i turn the computer on there is a constant loud beeping noise. It even does it with everything unplugged (only power source to the computer). Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Re: Geforce 6800 Xtreme AGP

You will have to delete the bios settings, by removing the side of your pc and locating; on your motherboard the'JBAT1' terminals. The jumper should be put accross pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to pins 1-2. Boot the pc up and press del or F2 and set he time etc and in the standard bios settings highlight the default settings and press enter. In the peripherals menu make sure that you dissable on board graphics and chhose your AGP graphics as the primary graphics controller. Save all settings and exit and allow a re boot an hopefully your pc will start without problems, although there should be 2 short beeps. The only other roblem will be making sure that your dell motherboard has the AGP controller driver installed as the card will not function, so download motheboard drivers first and install if you have no cd.

Problem installation video card

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: ). 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.

After I plug in my graphics card it makes a high pitch squealing.

Unplug the board, don't put the side panel on and listen for the sound. Sometime a rolled up newspaper can be used as a stethescope and help determine the squeal location.

I want to know about dell gx260

theoretically, yes, but whether you would actually want to purchase the card is a different story, 256mb cards are pretty much obsolete any more, and depending on your intended purpose, it probably won't do what you want. i would suggest getting a new pc, preferably custom built, as you'll pay alot less, and get a lot better computer. but in any event, as long as the gx260 has a pci-e, agp, or pci slot, it should be able to support a 256mb nvidia geforce card with no problem, probably not the 9800 gtx, but it could probably handle a 6800-7800

Is my Motherboard compatible?

Try to find out what the AGP voltage is on the motherboard.
Some graphics cards use 1.5 volts and some use 3.
If it's a 1.5 volt AGP slot and you plug a 3 volt graphics card in, it either wont work or you could permanantly damage both card and motherboard.
