PC wont boot


Check your specs for this one on your Card (should be on the box or in your included documentation), but I believe your card is PCIE v2.1. If this is the case, your card won't work. Your mainboard is an older one, and you can tell by the black PCIE slot that it is only PCIE 1.0. NOTE: PCIE v2.0 cards will work with PCI v1.0 as long as they meet power requirements, etc. (yours should be fine) but there are no updates to fix this on your mainboard. Time to dig out your receipt and look over the return policy. Again, a PCI v2.0 should work OK, just not the v2.1 cards.
Please take a moment to leave feedback if I helped you out today.

I have a dell dimension 4400 and the original graphics card thats came with it but yesterday i when too turn on my computer and the screen is not picking up and image from the CPU is there anything i can...


OK, I am curious how are you going to install a new graphics card without installing a new graphics card? "picking up and image from the CPU is there anything i can do to install a new PCI graphics card with out having too install the new graphics card"

You can install a different graphics card in the computer assuming you have an open expansion slot. If the Current Graphics card is actually installed in the AGP slot open the Main CPU unit and remove it then install the new card. If when you started the computer you saw anything on the screen, the DELL logo or Bios setup, the problem most likely is not the graphics card being bad but possibly that the settings in windows some how changed and it is set to something it can't support or the monitor has gone out. If it is the graphics card and it is built onto the motherboard you will have to install the new card and when the computer starts enter the Bios to change the BIOS settings to disable the on board card or it will give you problems with conflicting resources. Most graphics cards use the same resources so two cards in the same computer will conflict with each other and neither will work. I would test with a different monitor before replacing the graphics card.

Screen went dead, unplugged the graphics card and


So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button.
Try to boot the pc.

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker, put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

Could be bad ram, motherboard, cpu, powersupply, videocard.

If the video card is suspected to be damaged, try it in a other pc (friend's, mom's or dad's, pentagons' ).

if it is bad, there is your answer.

Graphics card causing system to shut down?


Please go into the BIOS of the system and Set the BIOS as default
  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer first starts, it performs the power-on self test (POST). This test checks that all connected devices are functioning. As part of the POST, the memory is checked. During the memory test, a message will appear that tells you how to access the BIOS. For example, you may see the following message or a similar message that explains how to start the BIOS setup: PRESS DEL TO ENTER SETUPIn this example, you must press the DEL key immediately after the memory test is finished to start the setup process. You may have to press the key several times to make sure that you access the BIOS setup.

    Tip There are other keys that may provide access to the BIOS. They include the following:
    • F1
    • F2
    • F10
    • CTRL+ENTER
    • ALT+ENTER
    • CTRL+ALT+ESC
    • CTRL+ALT+INSERT
    If you are not sure how to access the BIOS setup, see the user manual for your computer's motherboard.
  3. Look for the Set BIOS as Default settings. You can usually use the arrow keys to move through the menus and settings.
Do that and then try to

Graphics card makes system reboot


Please shut down you're PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Remove the video card you have installed.
Once removed plug the power cord back in & start the PC. Press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds untill the bios main menu loads. How to move around in the bios is shown at the bottom of each menu screen.
The Asus P4S800-MX motherboard has an onboard video card built into the motherboard. Before you can add a video card you must make a change in the bios. Go to Advanced menu.
Page 2-21 in you're manual. Change primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card].
Save & exit the bios. The PC will begin to restart. Press & hold the power button on you're PC until the PC shuts off. Unplug the power cord again, open the case & firmly & evenly insert you're AGP graphics card. Connect any extra power to the graphics card if required. Re-check all connections & cables before closing the case. Turn on the PC. Wait for windows to finish loading before installing you're video card software.
That's it. You're card should now function. Good idea to update windows!

Good Luck!
