Question about ATI RADEON 7500, PCI Video Card

Video card in Dell Inspiron

I'm trying to install an ATI Radeon 7500 PCI video card (128Mb) into a Dell Inspiron 1100. The PC specs are as follow...

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?~ck=ln&~tab=2&c=us&l=en&lnki=0&s=gen

There is no display at all on boot-up. This is with the LCD connected to its original on-board connection or the ATI card. I also tried the DVI connection with no results. The display comes back when the ATI is removed. I've tried upgrading the chipset, the BIOS version is as high as it goes, and I installed a higher-voltage power supply - no-go on all of this.

Any help is appreciated.

    I forgot to mention that I was able to install it on another clone system (sorry - it was late on Friday).

    spyzampinoy, RODGANDYSR:

    Thanks for your input but I figured it out. Not only does the on board video need to be disabled in the BIOS, it also has to be disabled in Device Manager. I was very hesitant to do this but it worked.

Hi steve, either the video ati 7500 is not compatible with your motherboard, which is very unlikely... its a big possibility that your video card is defective

DOWNLOAD ATI RADEON PCI EXPRES X300 SE 128MB


Need more information on the exact problem and what and where you downloaded. I assume you are replacing the integrated video adapter with a PCI expansion slot.

You must disable the integrated Motherboard video adapter in the BIOS. The new card must be compatible with the expansion bus in your computer. New drivers new from the manufacturer must be installed before the PCI express card.

Follow the instructions included with the new graphics card.

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.

Cant utilize extended monitor function in XP w/ onboard chipset as other VGA out


You cannot use both the onboard video and a separate card at the same time. Are you trying to use multiple monitors? Your video card must support that if you are, and the Radeon 7500 does not mention that it does. If it does, the ATI Catalyst drivers will have the option.

Installing a Dell RADEON 7500 AGP video card into a Compaq Evo SFF


Did you remove the previous video cards drivers from the control panel? The Catalyst Control Center requires Microsoft’s .NET Framework version 2.0. To remove what might have installed or your old ATI software run this uninstaller for Radeon. Download here:

Try your install again.
