Lack of knowledge of Dell OptiPlex SX280 SFF video capabilities

I want to set a computer up as a media center but don't know if the
onboard video capabilities of this particular unit will allow me to watch
my vids in full 1080P on my 42'' flatscreen. Tried to find specifics of
onboard video at dell site but was unable to do so. Would appreciate
anyones input who knows. Thanks!

Nop, you will not be able to watch 1080p, the graphic card is not that good, you have an integreted intel GMA 900 graphic card, that card can never show full HD as 1080p is. And the 512mb memory that you have, thats is not good enough either.


Sorry M8



Good luck

Hi, excuse my poor english. How can I disable onboard video on a Lenovo M55e 9632AE2? Thanks in advance. Markus Brandl


There are two ways to disable the onboard video:

First Option:
When the machine boots up, watch for instructions such as "Press to enter setup, bios, configuration, ect." Within the BIOS setup should be an option to disable to onboard video. This can usually be found within an Integrated Chipset Features section or a Video section depending on your BIOS. Be careful though, messing with settings that you don't understand can affect your computer negatively.

Second Option:
Assuming you're disabling the onboard video because you have installed a video card, access the device manager by right-clicking "My Computer" and click Manage. Select the Device Manager on the navigation pane on the left, then expand the Display Adapters section. Right-click on your onboard graphics adapter and then click Disable and you're done!

I just lost my video output from my HP m7250n. I tried replacing the graphics card and that did not work. I connected the display with its VGA cord to anther computer and it worked just fine. Any ideas?


This particular model of computer is known to have bad capacitors. If the capacitor that regulates power to the onboard graphic chip is bad, you will not get a video output.

On my windows media player the Audio noise i can here but i can not see no picture with any of my video's do you no how to fix it


Hey, this problem is usually because you do not have the proper "CODEC"downloaded. "A codec is a device or computer program capable of encoding and/or decoding a digital data stream or signal." - in your case, your vids.

So, All you need to do is update your system. A good codec pack you can download is on this site:

http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm

or if you can find many other sites that provide that very same codec for downloading by simply typing: "download k-lite codec pack" in google.

after you install the program. Restart the computer and then you can watch your vids.
Hope this helps

Media Center has an Intel graphics chip on the mother board. How do I omit using it so I can install a PCI video card?


Have you tried adding the card and see if it defaults to the card rather than the onboard video? Many BIOS are set that way by default.

Go into your BIOS and look at the onboard devices. It is preferable to tell your BIOS to first look for an add-in card and default back to onboard if you don't find one. But you can disable your onboard video, then save and reboot.

When turning monitor stays in the "E" for at least 10 -15 min.


You can do a system restore which will set the computer back to previous settings. If it is not allowing you access at all, It may be loose video card.
Are you able to access your control panel?

MOST LONGER VIDEOS ARE SLOW AND "STUTTER' ALONG AS THEY PLAY


A video card with more onboard RAM would help cure the stuttering but it also depends on what you have running in the background. Hope this helps.

Connecting media center to receiver


Hey there,

Okay let me start with your pc setup. What type of sound card are you using? Are you using onboard? You have to check and see if the sound card or device you are using supports SPDIF passthrough. Basically this does just what it says...passes the surround sound signal through your hardware with no onboard decoding and uses the decoder found on your stereo. I use a soundblaster Audigy and i had to enable passthrough in the audio console. I also had to enable spdif as my default audio playback device. This is in Windows Vista. You also need to go into properties and set the formats your receiver supports. Once that is complete you need to adjust the audio settings in media center and select toslink as your audio output and select 5.1 audio.

Things should work now...BUT...you will only get surround sound audio when watching a source that has dolby 5.1 or DTS. You will not get surround sound in games =( When i watch ota hd shows that have dolby audio, the blue light kicks on in my receiver and i get 5.1 audio. Same goes for watching DVD's. I hope this helps you out
