    It could be a couple of things. Did you hook up the power to the card? Did you disable the onboard graphics in bios? Does your power supply meet the requirements for the video card?

    I was under the understanding once I placed this product into the slot, that was the power supply! It has a 12 pin setting on it but I thought that was for something else. There is not a 12 pin power plugin in the tower

    The BIOS does not offer anyway to disable the grapics. Its only options are: PCI, PCI-Ex1, PCI-Ex16, Onboard. Thats it?

My screen is so dim on my dell vostro 1500. my kids play educational games on it and i'm worried it's so bad for their eyes. the fn key does not work. please help!m thank you.

You can try to go to the power settings and adjust to brightness of your portable system. There should be a battery icon on the lower right portion of your computer, double click it and you should have the power setting. On the bottom portion, there should be a lever where you can set the brightness higher. if this does not work try to adjust contrast in the nVidia Control Panel (assuming you have an nVidia card).

In Vista, go to
Display Settings->Advanced Settings
Click the GeForce tab
Click "Start the NVIDIA Control Panel"
Click the "Display" category
Click "Adjust desktop color settings"

VeI have a DELL VOSTRO 220S when i am turning it on it partly loads and then freezes and has black lines flashing on the screen? what could be wrong with it?

The video chip , which is part of the motherboard , has failed. You can't fix that, the motherboard will have to be replaced. If the pc is still in the warranty take it to where you bought it.

Sounds like you are overtaking the power supply with the upgraded video card. 250 Watt is pretty much an entry level PWS, with most systems and upgraded Video I suggest a 400 watt PWS or higher
