Question about Power Color RADEON X1550, (256 MB) Graphic Card
I have three suggestion. Since your currently using your old video card now I'd like you to update windows. You need to have at least .Net framework 2.0 installed in your PC. Do not skip installtion of earler version of .Net framework like 1.0, 1.1.
If you haven't updated in a while this may take some time.

Restart the PC. After windows finishes loading remove your older video software from Control Panel -Add/Remove. Shut down PC, unplug power cord. Remove older video card, clean slot with a blast of canned air or clean paint brush. Install newer card. Make sure it is seated correctly. Re-connect Pc & boot to windows. Install downloaded drivers. If your card continues to wig-out after 10-45 min, it might be over heating. Make sure you have plenty of fresh air to enter the case.

The floating 'Dell Self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen on a black background if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green. Also, depending upon the selected input, one of the dialogs shown below will continuously scroll through the screen.
If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.
- This box also appears during normal system operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
- Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable, then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
