Re: Video card

Wow, everyone wants to shove this guy into spending a lot of money. You should consider the machine he has. It's 4 or 5 years old so how fast does the video card have to be?

you can get a 512mb PCI card that will work fine with your system. ATI is good.

Re: Video card

Hi, Yosemic
Happy Holidays,
Sometimes is difficult to accept the reality of technology, but is happend, there is no 512 RAM video for this particular PC, but you can found for 256 ram, yet from Nvidia or Radeon taste.
PCI-E is eating the market.
(time to change your MOBO)

Re: Video card

Hi Yosemic..

Bad news for you... your computer don't have an AGP or PCI-e slot, so a video card upgrade is possible, but no recommended cause you will have to buy a PCI VGA (very slow).

Your computer only have 3 PCI slots as you can see at this link

Better buy a new one..

It will run but if you want smooth full graphics you will need to get a better video card. of course 4 gigs of ram is better then 2 but if you are running 32 bit windows then you are stuck with a max of 3 gigs of ram.

Upgrades and advice!!!!!

2GB is the maximum amount of ram you can install in your Dimension 2400. Depending on how much ram you have in it now,.. you could get a substantial speed difference by upgrading. You can upgrade the video card if you want. If you want to upgrade to 2 GB and upgrade to a decent vid card,.. you are looking at about $180 for parts. you will need to determine if that is something you want to put into the 2400 or buy a new computer with substantial speed and performance difference for about $500 from Dell. If you have any further questions, please post a comment here and I will answer them for you.

When i turn my computer on the power light and


If your computer turns on and your monitor stays in stand by mode, then there is no communication between your video card and the monitor.
You could check if the cable is plugged in correctly or even faulty.

It is also possible that there is a problem with your video card. Maybe physically uninstalling and reinstalling it could solve it.

If none of this helps, then you might want to check a new video card.

Hope this helped.

It is lagging for certain games like World of Warcraft. I checked bios, and in only allow for 8 mb of the CPU to go to it. How do I allow more ram to be used?

It configures the system memory allocation reserved for the integrated video controller. Settings are 1MB and 8MB. The most effective solution is disable onboard video and put any Radeon 8 series with 256 or 512 MB RAM, they are cheap now and WOW will be fine, I confirm because use the Radeon 8600 512 MB card. Your computer has PCI Express slot and any Radeon fits perfectly onto it. Good luck!

Do I need to upgrade my video card before using a Dell 24 inch monitor with a Dell Dimension 2400

Technically, no.

However you probably won't be able to use your monitor's maximum resolution unless you do. However, if you don't you'll still be able to see the video. I recommend trying it without upgrading first and see if what you have currently supports your monitor's resolution. If you don't like the available resolutions, then you can upgrade.

No video

You can go into the BIOS , under onboard devices. Change the primary video controller to PCI.
refer to the following screen

If the cards are not detected on the board. Then the problem could be of the PCIe slot .

Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop Burned Out w/Memory Upgrade

Is the video card built into the motherboard? If not you can try replacing just the video card to see if that works. Otherwise I am afraid you may have to replace the motherboard.
