I there a replacement for a gx280 SFF powersupply?

I have a DELL GV280 SFF running Windows 7 and just brought a ATI Radeon 4350 to replace the onboard INTEL graphic chipset. The problem is that the powersupply can't supply enough watts to run anyting beyond the windows inviroment (at least I have AERO now). I there a replacement powersupply available that will get me 300 - 350 Watts?

This model uses a custom dell power supply, and is made to be low cost. So the simple answer is no. You can use a different, higher watt power supply but it wouldn't fit in the proprietary dell case, you would have to run it outside the case or some other custom way of mounting it as dell doesnt use standard parts in this machine.

Your best bet is to take the power supply out and take it to a good electronics store that has decent computer hardware. That way, you can compare the connections available and also its mounting style to make sure it will work.

Dell gx280 wont run I installed new video card in pci e slot


I had exactly the same problem on my friends Dell GX280. It will only let you use the onboard card or the new radeon card not both together. In the end we had to buy a Radeon card that was made specifically for two monitors and disable the onboard card on BIOS. It would not let us use the two seperate cards in unison.

My video controller driver is not working in windows 7. i have a dell optiplex gx280. where can i find it?


Because the your sistem is very old he is no longer have officialy support for Windows 7. But because this sistem model was sold with ATI or INTEL chipset video driver, if you are lucky to have one with ATI video card x300 you can try this driver for Windows 7 beta from HERE. Or you can upgrade your video card with a better one compatible with Windows 7.

I have a HP dc7600 SFF. Tried to Install 2 graphics cards no vid


The dc7600 SFF only comes equipped with a 240 watt power supply. I think this may be causing your problems.

I am currently looking for a graphics card for the same comp with the HIS ATI HD 4350 in mind, but the website states that a 300 watt power supply is recommended.

I installed the ATI x1650 but the monitor is blank when I turn on


Yes the card does support the screen. If you have blank screen right from turn on, chack that you have not plugged the monitor into the onboard graphics port instead of your Radeon. If you have plugged it into the right port then you have hardware problems. Could be any of the following:
1. Monitior
2. Video Card
3. System memory
4. Motherboard
5. Powersupply
6. CPU

Try a different monitor and get back to me if you want troubleshooting tips.
Cheers

Power off issue for GX280


just run scandisk for your windows driver and check for any errors.

i once got this problem i just ran scandisk and some errors are found in the filesystem and they were removed
after that i have no prob shutting down my pc.

and if possible try to run a virus scan like avast or avg. etc.., this could take long if you have a monster harddrive and data.

hope this helps..

HP D530 Video card upgrade


If the HP D530 has an AGP slot, which I think it does, then yes you can install the Radeon HD 4350 card.
Make sure you have the correct driver for the video card.
