Ack graphics card wont fit in any input slots

I have a dell dimension 9100 computer and i just bought a x1950 radeon graphics card. i opened up the side, took the old one out and realized it didn't fit in any of my input slots. none of the slots even look like the side of the graphics card. do you think i need to just up and get a newer and better computer or can i somehow fix this problem?

The adapter u are using is pci express and the dell dimension 9100 are not compatible.. try returning it for either a pci (usually the white slot) or AGP which in most cases is brown.. the AGP will be your best performance.. if return is not an option.. then it seems that a new pc is in your best interest.

Get a new Video card, Your Radeon x1950 has meeted the end of it's life cycle. Once of the capicitor is damaged. You can repair the card if you know how to solder and weld other then that, it is cheaper to get a graphic card these days.

My ati x1950 xtx! FAULT LIGHT!! ??


What i recommend is take the card out your computer and see if it boots up.....if it does boot up then you know for sure that its the card or not...if it is the card it will all depend on what sha happened to it...if it has been struck by lightening then you household insurance should cover it to be replaced if you have household cover....but if it has just started that for no reason take it to the people you have baught it from so they can do a check on the card...please feel free to get hold of me if you need assistance

PCI Graphic card for Tomb Raider underworld


Hi,
There are PCI slots in your Machine and one or two PCI-Express slots (one of which might be very short). Usually the Graphics PCI-Express slot is the one on top (right below the CPU).
In order to play Tombraider at a decent speed, you should consider buying a Graphicscard for about 100-120$ going to low will result in low framerates, going to high is not worth the money since graphics cards are becoming obsolete in a matter of 2 years or so...

so get yourself a decent PCE-E GraphicsCard and youll be all set!
Hope this was understandable =)

My sapphire radeon x1950 pro has two power in puts


It may seem that there are two power connectors. (Sure it looks like) it but you will only be able to use one power connector. Cards with what looks link the same connector that you would plug in to a cdrom may & most times will not fit. It's normally the plug you would connect to a floppy drive. In either case only one power connector will be needed. (Do not force a power cable in to the card. As shown.

HELP FINDING A CARD TO FIT MY PCI SLOT


It is easy to get the PCI & PCIE stuff mixed up. PCI slots are all white doesn't matter who makes the board. PCIE however is all together different from a PCI slot. The PCIE slot sits fauther away from the back of the computer & so does a AGP. PCIE is a very long card. A PCI is not. The short slot you saw is also a PCIE slots. Not for video but more likely for network card. Most people never use them. Most likely the long slot above the short slot is a PCIE. So you want a card that is like what I'm going to list in this link.
