I have this card and do not show video nothing and without the car I try to install the driver and software Cd but don't want to run. is my Pc totally incompatible? dell studio XPS 8000 thanks

Not neccessarily. Depending on the power rating, your 350W PSU may not be strong enough to power this card.

I would get a new PSU anyway. They are cheap nowadays and yours is very small. It will barely be enough to boot up the computer and its devices let alone a power hungry graphics card

YES, if your card has 2 power connectors, they should both be connected. Always, Always, Always!
I would rather use 2 separate cables, I am having a hard time imagining what kind of "jumper" your a talking about. That sounds kind of Hinky, so before proceeding I would strongly suggest that you make sure that your power supply meets the power needs (for Watts and Amperage) for your new video card. Check out your video card's specs in your documentation, and look for a sticker on your power supply for its specifications.

Ill be playing a video online off youtube or playing a massive online game like World of warcraft and mid game or halfway through the program or video will freeze and the sound stalls like a motor...

The two main causes of this kind of malfunction are:

1. Network latency or disruption. The videos will stop and restart later, possibly in a "fit and start" pattern.

If this were the case, though, you should also experience troubles with ordinary navigation, Skype calls and so on, and you say nothing of this. So I'm afraid it's case

2. Hardware problem of the video card. The fact that it happens when the card is working heavily, strongly indicates that it is a cooling problem (you may notice the problem happening more often when it's warm, and disappearing with strong air conditioning, for example). With newer and hotter cards, requiring active cooling, it may be caused by a fan which is either disconnected, burned, or jammed by some wire or connector. Open the case and inspect the graphic card: if it has a fan installed, and YouTube is running, verify it is blowing air. If it is not moving, try nudging it very gently with a finger (quickly removing the finger from the fan blades). Loose cables jamming the fans are easily fixed by taping cables somewhere safe. Broken fans require replacement.
Another possibility, which needs experienced help, is a faulty or dried-and-flaked-off thermal coupling between graphic card GPU and heat sink (if there is one). Just unassembling the sink, cleaning GPU and sink, and properly applying a new layer of thermal coupling grease solves this kind of problems.

If i try to format my Kingston flash drive it will say insert driver and try again

Ok, do you have the driver for the flash? if you do I think you need to install it on your system.

You can also try scanning the drive with a strong anti virus like Avira anti-virus, because your drive might have been infected and maybe that's why it is malfunctioning.

Also try the flash on another system and see what happens, it might give you a clue on what the problem is.

Best wishes.

Dell optiplex 210l mini-tower video card upgrade

Before upgrading a video card, it's strongly recommended to check the wattage specification of the power supply unit. If the installed power supply unit can cater the need of the newly installed video card then it can be used normally.

You may refer to the user manual of the Computer to check the wattage specification or the Power supply unit(PSU) or directly open the tower to check for the printed value on the PSU itself.

I record but the sound is very very low.

If you are recording from a line-out coming from a headphone output from the TV try increasing the TV volume. (and check the signal is strong by testing with headphones).

If you need to still increase the recorded volume... open the Volume control mixer; open the properties for Recording; select an Advanced option and then Microphone boost

Trying another cord would be the first step. After that, make sure that you have the correct drivers for your OS. If it is not the drivers, then check the connection between the the card and the physical output device (the male VGA or HDMI connector).

Fx 5200 geforce graphic card

You did not mention if the board your running has an integrated video card on it. If it does & you have added the FX 5200 AGP you need to make a change in your bios. Set the bios to see AGP. Re-check the insertion of the AGP card. Remove the video card. Use a strong flash light & look into the AGP slot. Use canned air & blow out the AGP slot. Re-seat the video card evenly into the AGP slot. Try again.

Vibrating monitor

Depending on what monitor you have (most new lcd/plasma models dont have vertical hold) it may have a vertical hold adjustment knob. If you have not already tried adjusting it, turn it all the way clockwise, then all the way counter-clockwise, and then see if you can find a middle ground and slow or stop the jumping.

Another thing it could be is your video adapter, if the above step does not repair it, shut down the computer, unplug the video cable, then plug it in again and secure it tightly with the provided screws. If THAT still doesn't do it, shut down, remove the video card, then make sure the contacts are not damaged and are clean, re-insert the card and secure it properly to the chassis with its screw. Attach the video cable, and turn on the computer.

If none of the above fixes your issue, the last step I would suggest is reinstalling/updating the drivers for the video card, available at your card manufacturers website.

If that doesn't help you, the only way to continue troubleshooting would be to open the device up and service it, which I would strongly advise against if it is a CRT monitor (Glass screen, heavy) as certain components hold strong charges that can seriously harm you and possibly cause death, if you touch the wrong component.
