Nvidia quardo fx 3500 / Dell Precision 690

Hi I have a Dell precision 690 workstation fitted with an Nvidia Quardro 3500 fx card. I have encountered win sys errors recently (blue screen) when using solidworks & now when I open for example sketchup the screen flashes up black then back to the windows screen & repeats. I have to manually shut down (it is pretty much a crash).

I am presuming this is a problem with the card ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This sounds like it could be a driver issue. I have seen solidworks cause crashes and lock-ups whedn any microsoft applications are running, most notably outlook. Assuming you have plenty of memory (2Gb+ essential) and all latest service packs/drivers, it could be a problem with the graphics card, possibly an overheating issue.

My Dell latitud 3100, Can't see my new fx geforce 5200 256mb

Uninstall your previous graphics card drivers and install the ones for your 5200, if that doesn't work try getting the new drivers from the nVidia site or just smash it with a hammer!

I forgot my latitude d800 bios password and it won't let the computer boot past the windows load up.

for that you have to reset bios settings.
For that you have to open cpu cabinet and if you have laptop you have to open back side cover of laptop then you find motherbord .
pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are defaults.then it not need password.

How to rebot dell laptop

Usually three ways.

Start-turnoff computer-reboot

Three finger salute aka hold down CTRL and ALT and then press the Delete key. That will either bring up task manager where you can select reboot or it will just reboot if you press it again (depends on os version)

Hold down the power button.

Depending on your model there may also be a reboot button that you can poke. It is usualy hidden on the bottom somewhere.
