Try going online to call up the specs on your motherboard. You could also call Acer or check their website.

Onboard sound lost after video card installation


If your PC had an onboard video card before this, you may want to go in and make sure you have disabled it in the BIOS. This has happened to me before.

Well i put in graphic card ATi radeone 9250 agp 128 mb and then i instaled latest drivers for it including catalyst,and when i start game...any game..it crashes and i get error from catalyst center that it...


Hello
Uninstall All drivers and software for ati card. Take card out.Put card back in. Reboot pc.Reinstall drivers.I dont think the 128 mb cards Came with a fan.The 256mb did.

All the same,check your pc fans are working and clean.Also disable any onboard motherboard Graphics.You will need to do this in the bios.

Possible card was not seated right in agp slot,or drivers were corrupt.

Video not working on 755Twins-hdtv motherboard.


The option to disable the onboard graphics is in the BIOS.
You need a PCI-express card. You should not be trying to fit any graphics cards into the PCI slot.
The VGA/HDTV conection should have been supplied on a seperate card.

Pixel shader error 06 on my optiplex 330


Graphics Card
Minimum Requirement
VRAM (256 MB)
DirectX 9.0c / Shader 3.0
NVIDIA GeForce 6800 series
ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro

Your Dell has an Intel GMA 3000 onboard with up to 256 MB shared memory and isn't listed so probably isn't supported.

Monitor goes black after windows boots up


Try removing the video card, and look up your motherboard / system manual on dell's website on how to manually reset the bios.

1. Remove video card
2. Reset BIOS (physically opening the computer and using a special jumper and/or removing the battery...what ever the manufacturer says to do to reset the BIOS).
3. After BIOS is reset, try booting up via your onboard video card first. Once you get that working, go into the bios settings and make sure it is set to boot the onboard only for right now and then you can make sure the ATI software is fully uninstalled when you get into windows.
4. Reinstall the ATI card and boot up with the video still connected to the onboard card. See if it will let you install the driver.

The trick here is to reset the bios and get the system booting off the onboard card if at all possible. If that works, then you can always reinstall drivers and then tweak the bios to boot off the AGP card instead of the onboard.

Graphics Comparison


I beleive that your onboard is pretty much the equivelent to the geforce card you have spec-wise. But the 3300 a much new technology and has a faster processing speed in comparison to the geforce 6600 (not sure about the 7200).

In anycase, if you get yourself another ATI HD card (2400, 3450, or 3470) you can actually run them both as a Crossfire set up. Also, you can slight overclock your onboard video just a tad if that is a route you wanted to take.

The HD 3300 onboard was meant to be a better option over more entry level cards on the market today.

If you're still not sure, you can always do a 3dmark or gaming FPS test on each gpu to see which gives you the best outcomes.
