Can't install NVIDIA Go5200 64MB in Dell Inspiron 5100

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately BIOS does not give me option to change video/vga/agp, etc...when I hit F2 at start up time. It's the latest BIOS for the laptop, i.e ''A32''.
I assumed it would detect ''automatically'' the new card.. And yet, I get blank/black screen. So something is missing and yes it should not be a driver issue per se, but something prevents the system from seeing the new graphics card. Could it be that this NVIDIA card is not supported by DELL for this laptop, as opposed to the ATI Radeon 7500 and 9000 (not working well by all accounts) and therefore something has to be added/downloaded first?
If so, what is it? Thanks for any other idea, plain English and detailed, please!!!

Did you plug your monitor to the new installed graphics card. Actually if you are adding a new device you need also to install their driver. As what i have said first you plug your monitor to the new installed video card. That card is the priority to display.

Yes, I would have installed the software first. Let's just hope that your other comments are right because, if there wasn't any other option in the BIOS you might have to have a BIOS written for it.

    Do you still need help. Possible incompatibility issue too. Do you need a new BIOS written?

SOURCE: Problem installing ATI Radeon X1300 256mb in Dell Optiplex GX260

I am having the same problem with the GX260 and the x1600xt card. If you go to Visiontek's website and look in the forums, you will see that ATI and Visiontek have known about compatibility problems between certain Dell models and the X1300 and X1600 line of cards since 2006, and continue to market these cards with no warning of these issues. Visiontek established a beta test program back in 2006 to try to alter these cards to work in the incompatible Dell models (sometimes it works, sometimes not). If you have the Visiontek model, you may be able to participate in the beta test program (assuming it is still in existence). Otherwise, I'd call ATI about this known problem. I have used 4 other cards (currently 7300gt) in my computer and they all have worked fine, so this is an issue with the card.

No, you shouldn't need to install driver first. I checked the video card, and it should work fine with your system. You need to go into bios and change to vga mode or the other mode( I don't remember for agp)

256 MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for Inspiron 9400/E1705 Card Failu


Both solutions are wrong. The Dell Inspiron 9400/1705 is a laptop. If you buy a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for this laptop, you need to buy a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 motherboard for a discrete video card. The integrated video is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The integrated video has the video chipset on the motherboard and the discrete video (GeForce Go 7800) has the video chipset on the video card.

Problem installation video card


Hello Virna, i have that exact graphics card and dell GX270 desktop here at home, tho it has been awhile since i removed the Nvidia PCI card for a more favorable AGP card. From what i remember, first check your BIOS (hit F2 on startup) and select integrated devices, scroll down and make sure your default video output is either PCI (if available) or AUTO) exit saving changes. If that yields no result. Plug in a second monitor to your old integrated video output, if you can view windows after bootup from there, then you can install the proper Nvidia display driver for windows Xp (available here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html ). After installing, right click on the desktop, select properties, display settings tab, and make sure the Geforce card is the main monitor and the desktop monitor. Click apply, unplug the integrated VGA output, and restart. Hope this helps.
