Compaq 510s sff. Graphics Card

Just bought a sff compaq and its got no graphics card installed. i tried an AGP (geforce FX 5200 128mb). That didn't work at all. nothing happened at start up. do i have to get a PCI graphics card or are there some AGP cards that work? if so do you know which ones? Not much room inside the box so a PCI card may not have room. Thanks in advance Michael

Hi Mikey You need to go to your bios setting and change your graphic adaptor from PCI/.. to AGP 1- turn your computer off (Shut Down) 2- keep press and release "delete" key on your keyboard while turning your computer on untill you go to bios (normally blue screen) 3-find your desplay/graphic or anything that is related to graphic. 4- Change it to AGP Now it should work but if it didn't work: 1- Faulty Display (Monitor) 2- Not compatible graphic card(rearly) 3- loose or damaged cables 4- Damaged Motherboard please let me know of your progress Kind Regards

I lost the cd for my graphic card and cannot for life of me find on internet, here is card type : pny geforce fx 5500 ddr 128 mg agp.. anyone have a free driver ?

I don't, but Nvidia does at
you have a geforce 5 your os and language. this will give you the unified driver that works on all Nvidia chipsets. be advised the card you bought was private labled to PNY so the automated driver search will probably just tell you you don't have any Nvidia cards installed.

Desktop Casings are lower enough that can't be closed when inserting Cards like your Graphics card. Change your desktop casing to Tower Casing so you can freely install your Graphics card to the graphics card of your motherboard.

Fx 5200 geforce graphic card

You did not mention if the board your running has an integrated video card on it. If it does & you have added the FX 5200 AGP you need to make a change in your bios. Set the bios to see AGP. Re-check the insertion of the AGP card. Remove the video card. Use a strong flash light & look into the AGP slot. Use canned air & blow out the AGP slot. Re-seat the video card evenly into the AGP slot. Try again.

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.

Nvidia fx 5200

The only time that this can happen is if the driver is not installed correctly, as on install you are normally asked if you want to activate support for dual monitors, so if you havent already, uninstall the card driver, restart and install driver again from the cd or from the NVIDIA website. If you have already tried this my apologies.
