Question about Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop

1 Answer

No video XFX nVidia GeForce 1GB 9500 GT PCIe, VisionTek ATI Radeon 512MB HD 2600 XT PCIe, VisionTek ATI 256MB HD 2400 Pro PCIe are all not recognized by BIOS, WinXPSP3, or Vista Ulimate SP1 in 3 different Dimension 4700s. All are upgraded to 450 Watt PSU. No video from VGA ports and intrgrated video on MB continues to function. BIOS A10 video set to Auto. All of these graphics cards work and function normally in a Dell OptiPlex GX620 with only a 280 Watt PSU.

    Make sure to go into set up and where the Bios A10 video is set to automatic that you check PCIe too. Probably done it, but its usually the simple things that trip me up.



    Look in device manager to make sure PCIe functioning okay with correct drivers. Somestimes the PCIe is what holds you up in a case like this. Maybe you need a new driver from nVidia, Something sounds turned iff or bad driver. Checked everything applicable in device mgr and bios.?

HI,
You can go into the BIOS , under onboard devices. Change the primary video controller to PCI.
refer to the following screen
http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/syssetup.htm#wp1052347

If the cards are not detected on the board. Then the problem could be of the PCIe slot .


Thanks

you cant join two different platform vga cards. simply because they have their own platform and have separate drivers, so they conflict each other thus causing one of them shut off or disable..

EA Game ''Spore'' - Videocard & Driver Issue


Well, I can solve it but it is somewhat bad news. Basically your video card is not powerful enough. Here are the ATI specs from the EA website;
  • ATI Radeon™ series
  • 9500, 9600, 9800
  • X300, X600, X700, X800, X850
  • X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950
  • 2400, 2600, 2900
  • 3450, 3650, 3850, 3870,
  • 4850

    and here are NVIDIA
  • NVIDIA GeForce series
  • FX 5900, FX 5950
  • 6200, 6500, 6600, 6800,
  • 7200, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950
  • 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800
  • 9600, 9800, GTX 260, GTX 280
    I would recommend buying a new video card. You can pick up a NVIDIA 8400 thru 8600 for about $30 or $40 from Frys.com or newegg.com sometimes cheaper with rebate.

    They are fairly easy to install.

    Good Luck.
