Question about Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it is highly likely that you have just fried your whole computer. Most Dell computers use a proprietary power supply which means that the voltage running from the pins on the motherboard power connecter are different from the standard pc designation. This is a necessity, because their motherboards are of their own manufacture. This is why if you don't buy a power supply from Dell, you must buy a converter cable for the standard power supply in order to connect it to the motherboard. I would advise you to put the old power supply back in and hope that you still have a compy.
Another culprit could be the fact that you are using dual channel memory, and the new stick you inserted doesn't match the mhz speed or size of ram in MB or GB of it's neighbor.
Another reason is that you have not gone into your BIOS and told the system to run from the pci-e 16 slot

Yes. Have you installed the software and driver for the new video card? If you had "onboard" video before you may have to turn it off in the BIOS setup screen.
Additionally if you had a different video card you may have to remove the software for it but not usually. Need more help , just ask.
