How do i upgrade My GPU in a dell Optiplex 745 Desktop Low profile?

Chris, let's back up just a second. Before you go for a new graphics card, just what problem are you trying to solve? If you're watching TV, the graphics you already have are likely just fine.

If you feel your system is slow doing regular stuff, more RAM may help, or a faster disk drive.

About the only thing a fancy graphics board will get you is faster screen updates for gaming. If that's what you're after, you may want to consider a full system update, with standard height case, 500 watt power supply and all of that....

XPS-410 needs to have MCE 2005 Rollup two SP3 replaced by Windows 7 64 bit. Too many problems to list currently but will work limited programs

Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.

Dell studio XPS 7100 tower. the power light is orange and it wont start

The amber light can mean that the power supply isn't providing enough power to the system board or that the system board (or the CPU on the board) isn't working.

Since your fans are working, your power supply hasn't completely failed and the board is providing power to the system fans. Thus, either the power supply is giving limited power, your CPU has failed or the motherboard isn't talking to the CPU anymore. (The BIOS is only accessible when the CPU is operational.) I'd first try a new power supply. Make sure to get one that has at least the same power rating as the original, matches the wiring in your case and will fit in your case. (Note: you need to be careful. 1) Some Dell systems use a proprietary power supply (shape and wiring). 2) Many current power supplies are rated by their peak power output, not their stable power output. You want to match or exceed the stable power output of the current power supply.)

If the power supply doesn't solve the problem, I suggest getting a new computer is better than a new CPU or motherboard. (The Dell Studio XPS 7100 was released in 2010.) Replacing the CPU or the motherboard makes your computer a new machine to Microsoft and you may have trouble getting a working license. (You'd have to call Microsoft for activation and they probably will want to charge you for a new license.) Take your hard drive out of the current machine to get your data from it. You can put the drive inside another desktop with SATA ports, use an external drive enclosure (3.5") or SATA drive dock, or a USB to SATA drive adapter.

I hope this helps.

Dell XPS 410 power supply fan loud and computer is running slow


This issue happens when your computer is using or requiring a large amount of power source or the power supply is simply dying out already. You may want to update the BIOS. If the problem perists, replace power supply.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

My xps710 was flashing amber tech said motherboard or power supply problem replaced both with 720 motherboard new power supply upgraded system with windows 7 additioal harddrives and bluray. same problem...

If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.

Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location, if applicable

Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board

Click on the link below for a diagram of your system motherboard:

Have you added any new hardware?

If you have replaced the Motherboard a common error is that one of the power connections to the motherboard is not connected, double check all connections.

Will a 512 mb video card work with a 300 watt power supply

It all depends. Does the card require a 6 pin PCI-E power connection? Does your power supply have such a connector? If both answers are yes then it is possible. If the card does not require a power connection then it is also possible. But I would recommend upgrading to at least a 450 watt psu to run it more efficiently. Hope this helps.

XPS 600 serious Boot up Problems!

sounds to me like the fan is on the way out ,and if the cpu gets too hot the pc will shut down.
check that the fan is not obstructed,clean it if it is full of dust, replace it if it is not working as it should.

also listen to the power supply fan, is it working ok,this could cause the same type of problem but for different reasons.

good luck

Is the 350 watt power supply unit ok for EVGA Geforce 6800 graphics card ?

The big issue with a power supply unit rating is the total peak load that it has to deal with, which you calculate by adding all the rated loads of all the parts of your pc that are connected to it, and add yourself an extra 20% for luck. The motherboard, the HDD, the fans, the drives, USB devices, modem, and many more. If you have enough wattage left to accomodate your graphics card then it should be fine. If in doubt, for the cost it is always better to upgrade your power supply to a larger rated one, rather than overloading a smaller supply or causing low voltage problems with all your peripherals. Here is the link for your graphics card manual if you need it; Check page 5 reference the supplemental power adaptor, and check your power supply has an connector for it. If you want to identify the power consumption ratings for each part of your pc, most will be written on the component somewhere, some in the manual, and some you have to guess by checking similar items ratings online. If you want help with this please post again and we can certainly try. Looking at the card, my guess is that a system that can justify such a nice card is likely to be pushing a 350w supply already, I'm guessing what your system could be like and I would put a 600w or more supply in it as soon as i had the cash to do so. post back all the details of your machine and i can figure it out if u like. This link takes you to some other interesting info about your graphics card. Mostly a power supply that cannot deal with the demand will inform you by shutting down or committing suicide, although occasionally other components can be damaged by poor power supply, the chance is minimal with many newer items, and it should be worth trying. The fan performance of a power supply often governs how well it can deal with long periods of high load - give it a proper clean, and remember to check always that it is running. if you want, you can install another fan on the outside (blowing the same way), but unless you power it from a different source then you don't really help much. Instead of getting a larger power supply, you can just get another (perhaps from an old pc) and only use it to power the graphics card - best left outside the case for overheating reasons. Hope this all helps :)
