Question about ATI RAGE XL (8 MB) Graphic Card
I am using the ATI RAge xl 8mb video card as a second video card. This card is for my secon monitor. I have downlaoded the driver and it says the device is working properly but I do not have anything on my monitor. Please help.
Have you set your system to use a second monitor? Right click the desktop and choose Properties. In the Settings tab, click the 2nd monitor and check the box that says Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor. If that fixes it, please rate me accordingly. If not, let me know and we'll try something else.

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers also you might uninstall the display adapter restart your computer then reinstall the display adapter and its drivers this would apply to the sound video and game controllers to
If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it

My name is Todd and I'm with Dell's online outreach program. Have you tried that system with a different monitor, or is that monitor working correctly on another system? Just trying to confirm it's the video card and not the monitor itself.
Another step you can try is to go into the BIOS / System Setup of that GX 240 to see whether the problem is only happening as it tries to load the drivers. I sort of doubt that it is from your description but you can test it pretty quickly by tapping the <F2> button when the Dell logo would first appear. If the video is normal in the System Setup that would let you know if the basic video functions of the card are working correctly.
But to be honest it sounds like the video card is failing from your description. I assume your system's service contract has expired?
If you would like more detailed help feel free to email us at Customer_Advocate@Dell.com. Please include my first name, Todd, in the subject line of the email and reference this issue so I can pull up information to try to help you.
