Hi,

Take out the two last cards you added and boot again.

Then turn it off and insert only one card at the time to find which one is the faulty.

Good Luck!!!

On boot up I have no video display on my dell optiplex 330


It could be one of two things, either your monitor is bad or the video card is bad. Try taken connecting your monitor to a different computer. If the monitor works then it the video card. You could just purchase a new video card and put in and it should work

On no signal


If you are saying the Monitor says No Signal, then more than likely the Video Card in the computer is bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor does the same and displays No Signal, then your video card is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad.

Dell optiplex light turns orange


Does anything ever post on the screen when you hit the power button?

Maybe the monitor is bad or the video card inside the computer is bad. Normally if the video card is bad the monitor will display a message of No Signal. If you are getting no message then I think your monitor is bad. To isolate the problem you need to put another monitor on the computer.

Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, family member or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed Monitor displays and works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as the original monitor then your video card is bad.

Monitor says no signal and will not run a dvd


It could be a couple of things. If this monitor is hooked up to a computer, it could be a bad video card. A video card is easily fixed on a desktop, if you're using a laptop you're probably out of luck.

If it's hooked up to a DVD player, check that the cord to the monitor is hooked up properly (make sure the connection goes from the "Video Out" on the player to the "Video In" on the monitor and that all connections are tight, not barely hanging on). If that doesn't work, try a new cable.
This is probably insulting, but also make sure that the monitor is set to the right channel if it's multichannel. For example, if your DVD player is hooked up to HDMI 2, make sure the monitor is set to use HDMI 2 for signal.

If none of these work, it's time to find a tech-happy friend that can inspect everything visually. Hope that helps!

do the following 1.check if the monitor power cable is fixed good.
2.try to connect your cpu to another monitor and see if its working.(if it works no prb with the video card else prb with the video card)
3.if your video card is good .then there must be a prb with your monitor a little soldering will fix it !!!

Whenever the monitor is turned on, it displays for about 3 seconds and then goes black. what to do? It is only about 3 yrs old


One of three things is the most likely culprit.

1. Onboard video card is either disabled or bad.
2. Cable is bad
3. Monitor is bad.

You can check the last 2 relativly easily by hooking the monitor and cable up to another computer to see if they function. if they don't then first try swapping out the cable (i say this first because its cheaper) then swap out the monitor.

To see if the video card is bad try hooking up a different monitor to the system. If the new monitor is not displaying anything then you most likely will need to put a new video card in the machine.

I want to run 3 monitors on my dell vostro


Hi,
 
Couple of points I’d like to mention. Vostro has two models slim and mini tower. Both of them are mostly similar so this should be applicable for whichever you have.
 
The default graphics card on the computer is integrated on the motherboard. When you add another video card, say to the PCI-Express 16x slot on the motherboard, this disables the integrated video card.
 
If the 2 monitors are connected to the video card, both would get display.
When the computer is turned ON, if you plug in the 3rd monitor to the integrated video card, you would not get any display on the 3rd monitor. BUT if you restart the computer with the 3rd monitor plugged in, the computer would give a signal to the 3rd monitor and disable the two monitors connected to the video card. This feature is added on purpose to diagnose any possible video card problems. Eg. Assuming there was a problem with the video card, if this feature were not available you would not get any display on the monitor from any of the ports and you would not be able to diagnose if the problem was with the monitor, integrated video or the video card.
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ

Bought refurbished dell optiplex 260 w/o operating system


The problem might be with the video card of the system as it might have gone bad. & as far as my knowledge about DELL Optiplex series is concerned they come with a integrated video card. So the problem might be with the mother board...

Intel 82845G Graphics doesn't support 1680x1050


You also have to install the monitor drivers.
And yes, the drivers directly from Intel will not work. Dell has a perpritory video, and you have to use the Dell Intel drivers.

I've installed a few of these, and I know they will work.
But I had to go with a 1280x1040 setting. It does work, and will fill the entire screen.

Another option is to put in a PCI video card (yes, a full size card will fit in the GX260's) One bonus to that is you can do multiple monitors. I've had best luck in the GX260's using video cards with an ATI chipset.
