Unplug the computer, Check if the cable connections to everything, reseat, you may have inadvertently disloged a connection when you installed the card. wait 30 seconds or so, plug in, reboot. You say the monitor is fine, what do you see on the monitor?

SOURCE: Using dual monitors on a Dell Optiplex GX260

You cant.. Unless the nvidia card you added has two video OUTs. Plugging in a aftermarket card causes the motherboard to disable the onboard video..
If your nvidia card has two "outs" then you can use two monitors... most newer nvidia cards support this. sometimes it requires an adaptor, but usually it was included in the box

My Dell Optiplex gx260 Pentium 4 Flat CPU doesn't Display anything, and Power light is Orange.. Please help me out


You say the power light is orange--I'm assuming that you mean the monitor.
This indicates the monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer.
Assuming that the computer actually powers up (fan runs, you can hear the hard drive being accessed, etc) then your problem lies in the video card.

If, on startup, you do see the BIOS info and maybe even the Windows splash screen before your monitor goes dark, then the problem lies in the video card drivers. In this case, starting in safe mode will work and allow you to download and install new drivers.

MY THIS QUESTION IS ONLY FOR CONCAKA


AGP stands for accellerated graphics port and is a slot for a AGP video card to be added. These cards can come with amounts of memory embedded in them up to 512meg and will only go into a computer with a AGP slot. these cards do not fall into the 2 gig motherboard limit. That limit refers to the system RAM, not the ram on the video card.
If you go to START- RUN -type "dxdiag" without the """" in the box. the direct x tool will tell you how much of that 2 gig limit is installed on your computer. at that point you will need to do therough math and figure out how much more memory you need to add to reach the 2 gig max.
Hope this helps you.. Regards..

RADEON 7500 AGP Graphic Card: just reformatted my old dell optiplex gx260 and i ...


You can try reinstalling the firmware for the video card, but if that doesn't work your video card is probably dead and you'll need a new video card. The firmware is what controls the video card, so if the computer shut off while the firmware was in the process of being rewritten, there's a good chance some of the code needed to run the card got erased or scrambled.

I need a new graphics card for my dell optiplex gx260 what can i buy


What you are looking for is an AGP 4x Low Profile video card, The GX260 is designed to be a business Small Form Factor computer so you are really limited on what you can upgrade to.
What are you looking to do with the video card?
How much do you want to spend on the upgrade?
What Country are you shopping in?

Pci-e question


Hi

I am afraid Dell OptiPlex GX260 has no support for PCI-e.

You can however install a half-length AGP (66MHz) graphics card.
