Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
How can I change from an onboard video graphics to a PCI installed graphics card. My onboard video graphic won't let change to the PCI card. I'm trying upgrade my graphics to more memory using the PCI card instead of the onboard graphics.
Being a PCI card, not a AGP or PCI-E the system may not simply switch to that one a primary display adapter when you install it, in the bios under advanced system settings or intergrated periferals, you should have an option to change the primary display adapter, make sure a PCI adapter is included.. if it isnt, chage it to recognise a PCI card as a primary adapter, turn the system off, and install your card then, depending on the bios/model of the mainboard on some of those dells, it may be a little hard to find, ive had to play with a few of them

You should just have to plug the card in to the PCI slot and install the drivers. After thats done try removing the driver for the onboard graphics I had onboard switched to a geforce 8800 and it worked just fine for me. Did you say your running a Dell?
