Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server
I am trying to installa video card in my Dell 1600SC server, in order to convert it to a workstation. I have installed windows XP successfully.
The docs say that inserting a video card in a PCI slot, the BIOS will automatically recognise and send the video signal to the card. It actually seems to shut down the onboard video, but the signal does not seem to get to the new card.
I tried to install a PNY 8300 PCI, which would display the bootup screen, but went blank when Windows tried to start.
I traded it for a PNY 6400 PCI (at recommendation of local store tech), which doesn't seem to even receive the bootup signal. The card is ok, as I tried it in another machine.
Try repeatadely pressing delete on startup with the monitor cable attached to your onboard graphics socket but keep the new graphics card in. then you should go into the bios. change the graphics setting to your graphics car and then save and reboot. it should now work from your new graphics card
