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?

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

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)

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
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/specs.htm

Better buy a new one..

Regards

WANT TO PLAY GTA 4


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.

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200


The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

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


HI,
You can go into the BIOS , under onboard devices. Change the primary video controller to PCI.
refer to the following screen
http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/syssetup.htm#wp1052347

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


Thanks

Getting access to bios in Dell Inspiron 1300


No, The amount of RAM the integrated video uses is dynamically adjusted depending on the loading of the video and the total amount of RAM installed.

If less than 512 MB RAM, the video is limited to 64MB, 512 to 2 GB max video RAM is 128 MB.

If you want to upgrade RAM to improve performance, check the link below:

2 GB for $50 + tax, not bad

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.
