Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
Is there a way to update the graphics on my old dimension 8200? Compared to my other computers, this one seems to open up outdated or incomplete versions of any given website.
I think I'm up to date with all drivers, bios, etc available over the internet.
thanks in advance, Bob
They have some VIDEO patch and upgrades available that may apply to your computer. Seems that they used many different video cards. One option,if it is a stand along(not onboard) video iis to buy a better video card and change it out.If on board video , it it may have a slot for the video or buy a PCI visdeo card and install it while turning off the on-board one.
Here is the Link to download the Video drivers and patches.

Tips for a great answer:
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
hope this helps
