For Motherboard interface:

mini tower version of the Optiplex GX520 appears to have one PCI Express Slot. other cases don't appear to have anything.

Check the photos on the link below to match up your form factor

For monitor, make sure you have a DVi port or something like that & that your card has a matching port or that you can get an acceptable adapter. If monitor not DV capable, HD video card will not help you much.

Your card is actually archived and now only has limited driver support.

It sound like it has trouble readfing or is having resolution problems but, if you haven't updated driver recently, that could be the problem. There is no support for Windows 7. The link above is the only driver with Catalyst Control for your card. You may want to consider a new one.

Hello xvanpersiex, these are "Full Specifications" of your [Graghis Card].
"Check this to the 'Specs' of the "Motherboard to see if it 'Supports' the Graphic Card?"
"Try 'disconnecting, and reconnecting' the "Graphis Card"
Verify that 'all' the "Connections" are "Tightly Inserted."
*Go to the Control Panel > Device Manager > AGP Graphic Card > Verify Installed? >

"If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!

Monitor port will not work. Can you replace?


You can install a PCI-E graphics card in the PCIE-16 slot and use that instead.

To get performance at least as good as the failed video output, you'll want the new card to have at least 256 MB video memory, 333 MHz or faster clock rate, and 16x9 native resolution formats available, including 1920x1080 (HDTV max resolution for DVD playback). The card should also have DirectX 9 support so you don't have any software issues. The cheaper video cards might be a bit short of this mark, but most of those over $100 will have all this and then some.

Video not working on 755Twins-hdtv motherboard.


The option to disable the onboard graphics is in the BIOS.
You need a PCI-express card. You should not be trying to fit any graphics cards into the PCI slot.
The VGA/HDTV conection should have been supplied on a seperate card.

Hi,

You can purchase a new graphics card and install no problem. Dont use S-Video tho, as the quality is not good. HDMI graphics cards are much cheaper these days.

Stay with Nvidia, as the onboard chip for your PC would support this better.

Hello,

Yes, You will a new video card, if possible, one that is PCIe with DVI outputs andor HDMI outputs and as much onboard memory your budget will allow. The standard VGA port on your motherboard can not support the refresh rate of the HDTV thus the static.

Good Luck

I want to hook laptop up to tv


after you hook the cable up to the tv, go into the tv's menu to make sure the input mode is set to s-video. then go into the control panel on your laptop and find the settings for your video card and set the output to "TV" or "Clone"

Let me know :)
