I have a Dell Vostro 400 and two video cards. Only one card will work and it is an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200.The other one is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO. These are the specs from the two graphics cards:...


you cant join two different platform vga cards. simply because they have their own platform and have separate drivers, so they conflict each other thus causing one of them shut off or disable..

I have an old dell dimension 2400 and I am trying to install an nvidia geforce fx 5500 pci card and I keep getting a blue screen when windows gets to the desktop.


If the blue screen appears only if the video card is plugged in that only means it's not compatible with your computer. If you want to know what video cards you can use for that computer try to go to this link.

Having problems installing a Geforce fx5500 on my dell deminsion


sounds like yo had the same Problems that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the monitor cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is running with your card you can also see that from the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped  install the driver first then disable download latest drivers here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us

Need a graphics card in Dell dimensions 5000 to play fall out 3


It's a common problem with people wanting to customize Dell Dimension PCs. They are a great basic PC but weren't designed to be completely tricked out. The layout for the power supply is a bit different in most of their cases and to upgrade the power supply you usually have to physically alter the case =\ There are afew video cards that have a lower draw, but I'm not sure if they are going to be that great of an upgrade.

Graphics Comparison


I beleive that your onboard is pretty much the equivelent to the geforce card you have spec-wise. But the 3300 a much new technology and has a faster processing speed in comparison to the geforce 6600 (not sure about the 7200).

In anycase, if you get yourself another ATI HD card (2400, 3450, or 3470) you can actually run them both as a Crossfire set up. Also, you can slight overclock your onboard video just a tad if that is a route you wanted to take.

The HD 3300 onboard was meant to be a better option over more entry level cards on the market today.

If you're still not sure, you can always do a 3dmark or gaming FPS test on each gpu to see which gives you the best outcomes.

Is my Motherboard compatible?


Try to find out what the AGP voltage is on the motherboard.
Some graphics cards use 1.5 volts and some use 3.
If it's a 1.5 volt AGP slot and you plug a 3 volt graphics card in, it either wont work or you could permanantly damage both card and motherboard.

Installing GeForce 5200 on Dell Dimension 2400


I suggest that better check that graphic card in another machine and make sure it is working.

Also find out the data transfer speed of your mother board through the AGP slot is compatible with your graphic card. (e.g. 4X, 8X, etc.)

If you are sure that your system really has an 8X AGP port (A choclate colored slot) then you could deffinitely install the card and work with it.

With the information I received the Dell Dimension 2400 deos not features an AGP 8X port, in that case it is not possible to install the card.

Then you should buy a new motherboard with AGP 8X Port to be able to install the Ge force FX 5200.

Dell monitor power down mode with Geforce GFX card install


I think maybe some how the main graphics for your pc has possibly switched to onboard. Try getting into bios F2 or DEl on boot up and highlight Advanced ChipsetFeatures and press Enter. In here make sure your AGP card is set as the Primary graphics controller. When done press ESC and 'Y' to save settings, then re-boot pc. Hope this gets you running again.
