Question about Dell Vostro 230 PC Desktop
What are some options I have to fix this.
If you are sure the graphics adapter is gone, you have check ALL cables, connections, try another monitor/ cable, drivers: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/vostro-230. A Graphics card is a option, make sure to look at the min. requirements for the graphic card, the power specs are important. I would not change the BIOS if Dell does not require it.

So if this is a slimline pc you are kind of limited in upgrade options
space being the biggest , then being followed with cooling ability, the best advice I can give you if specs say 350 is needed i wouldn't chance having the card pull more of a load off of the PSU than what is rated for it. Hope this helps

You hit that one right on the dot. ATI website showed the specs for that graphics card you installed as needing a 300 Watt power supply. Good news though... I researched newegg.com and I believe I found your 300W power supply. There are 4 different Optiplex gx280 designs with 4 completely different power supplies. Since you bought the low-profile video card, I believe you have the slim computer case and this power supply should work for you...

There is a work-around for Vista. Look here.
A little bit down you can read:
"A user could force the installation of a XPDM driver for each of these devices, and therefore get heterogeneous multi-adapter multi-monitor to work as in Windows XP."
If you can go that way depends mainly on the manufacturer of the video card driver.
If you are going to sell all your nice 22" monitors - let me know...;-)
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
