I just installed a geforce 6200 with heatsink, no fan, in my computer. Fry's is having a sale and for $20 after rebate, how could I go wrong? Upon first installation, the computer failed to boot.

THE FIX

Discovered modern computers will not even atempt to boot if the power supply is below the minimum requirement for the video card's recommended wattage. More proof that over-powered supplies are not an absolute necessity. I upgraded to 250w from the onboard 180w and it fired up. The rest was disabling the integrated video which i found out was compatible with geforce 5200 level of operations.

My system:
Dell Opti-plex GX260, cut to bare minimum since it was from a commercial business with 1G RAM after upgrade.

What motherboard do you have?

There will be somewhere in the bios to select which display device to use first.

Blank monitor after installing new video card


One thing you can try is to go into the Bios and load the default Bios settings. Sometimes that helps in reassigning interrupts and I/O addresses with new hardware.

I installed the ATI x1650 but the monitor is blank when I turn on


Yes the card does support the screen. If you have blank screen right from turn on, chack that you have not plugged the monitor into the onboard graphics port instead of your Radeon. If you have plugged it into the right port then you have hardware problems. Could be any of the following:
1. Monitior
2. Video Card
3. System memory
4. Motherboard
5. Powersupply
6. CPU

Try a different monitor and get back to me if you want troubleshooting tips.
Cheers

Blank screen after boot up


Remove the card, plug into your built-in card. Start your PC in safe mode. Uninstall all ATI software and delete the card from Device Manager. Restart. Reinstall the ATI drivers. Power down. Install the card and connect your monitor to it. The OS will find the card in default mode - let it. Restart. When it comes back up, you will be able to select the full range of operating modes.
BACK UP :)

Blank Monitor


I have the same system and card. The problem is the system is trying to run two monitors at once. Use Windows safe mode (F8 during boot) to uninstall any Pny drivers you may have put on. Reboot. Install the pny drivers again. Before rebooting, use the device manager to look at the display drivers. There should be two, an Intel one, and the pny Nvidia one. Disable the intel driver and reboot. Worked for me. Youmay also want to upgrade the power supply. The 3000 has a 225W and the 8400 card wants at least 300W.

Radeon X1650


Hi,

before doing anything.. What do you mean you get no blank monitor? Do you see anything at all? Do you see the POST running? Also, when you put in the AGP, did you plug your monitor into the new card? Or are you trying to boot from the old intergrated one?

You can change your graphics input in the BIOS from integrated to AGP (after putting in the new card). But, It should pick it up fine without changing it. And if it doesn't work after doing so, your motherboard may keep the settings, and then a deeper problem arises..

Installing AGP video card


Don't boot with the monitor connected to the card. You need to let it boot into windows and install the drivers for it first. Once you do that,shutdown and restart with the monitor plugged into it and it should work.
