Question about Dell Computers & Internet
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.

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.

Boot the system in safe mode. Go to device manager and under display adapters , right click on the onbaord graphics adapter and disable the same. It worked on one of the systems i troubleshot for the same problem.
Thanks for using Fixya
