Not every computer is the same, but many times you can disable your integrated graphics by going into the BIOS setup and disabling the onboard graphics. This is not necessary, even if you plan to upgrade.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx110/ens/ug/specs.htm#expansion_bus

when i read the system specs it says it only has PCI expansion slots. I regret to inform you your computer is very limited in its ability to expand, basically you will not be able to upgrade to render graphics for more 3d applications especially newer games. you need at least one AGP port or PCI Express. However if you absolutely want the best available for PCI you can purchase a RADEON 9000 PCI edition. It can handle most older 3d games or apps and it will work on your computer. All you have to do is plug it in to any PCI slot and install the software that come with the device, and voila.

For newer 3d apps and games you will have to purchase a new system.

I need vga driver for dell optiplex 380


Which specific model is the Optiplex 380 and what OS is installed on the computer? Does your computer have a graphics card installed or are you using the on-motherboard graphics?

Most of the Optiplex drivers are available here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/optiplex-380 . Use the drop down menu to select your OS. Expand the section labeled video for the Dell drivers. If you are using the on-board graphics, use the Intel Graphics driver. Otherwise, you need the one for the manufacturer of your video card. Note: Dell has the drivers for the NVidia and AMD cards that were installed on some models. If you have upgraded or added a new card, get the drivers from the manufacturer.

I hope this helps.

Non display for DELL GX 110PC Desktop


Either your monitor is bad or the video card inside the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try a different monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. If the borrowed monitor works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside your computer is bad.

It will run but if you want smooth full graphics you will need to get a better video card. of course 4 gigs of ram is better then 2 but if you are running 32 bit windows then you are stuck with a max of 3 gigs of ram.

Unable to upgrade onboard graphics on dell gx520


Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

Dell optiplex 210l mini-tower video card upgrade


Before upgrading a video card, it's strongly recommended to check the wattage specification of the power supply unit. If the installed power supply unit can cater the need of the newly installed video card then it can be used normally.

You may refer to the user manual of the Computer to check the wattage specification or the Power supply unit(PSU) or directly open the tower to check for the printed value on the PSU itself.

Lost resolution windows vista upgrade on GX260


Hi all,

I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:

1. Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window.
2. Click ‘Device Manager’
3. Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’
4. Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’.
5. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’
6. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
7. Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.

This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!
