Replace the fan as soon as possible. If the noise suddenly stops, DON'T assume the problem corrected itself. More likely, the fan completely froze and stopped spinning entirely and you're at risk of overheating something inside. Generally, there are usually 3 fans in a desktop computer (cpu/heatsink, case, and power supply) and sometimes a 4th fan if the computer has a separate graphics card. Laptops usually only have one fan.
If 1 and 3 light don't turn on, it means that a possible graphics card failure has occurred. I would suggest you open up your computer tower and remove your graphic card, clean the graphic card slot and the gold-fingers in the graphic card and put it back into the slot. If that still persists, if you have a known good extra graphic card, install it and confirm if it's working or not. If it worked, that means that the other graphic card is faulty, if it didn't work, that means that the graphic slot is faulty.
If you don't use a graphic card, but instead you're using an integrated graphic. You should contact DeLL.
Hi there,This is quite likely the fact that your graphics card is not inserted correctly into your motherboard,You should power down your pc,And try and re-fit your video card,(or even try and use anotehr PCI slot if possible) and make sure that it is firmly positioned into the motherboard.. This should fix your issue,good luck
hi this sounds like you may have bought the wrong type of graphics card for your motherboard, depending on the age of your motherboard they have changed over from AGP to PCI-e or even ePCI-e now if you have a slot that looks just like a PCI expansion slot at the top on its own away from the other ones, this will indicate a PCI-e or ePCI-e slot, if you have a brown slot at the top of the other ones this will be a AGP slot, just in case you have the right card, for the right slot, there is a locking clip at the end of the AGP slot that you have to pull to one side to put it in check to see if this is the case, then just do that.........hope this helps
The video card is in the AGP slot on the motherboard.
There will be a plastic clip at the back of the slot that needs to be pressed to release the back of the graphics card.
When you insert the new graphics card this clip should automatically lock in the new card.
the adapter u are using is pci express and the dell dimension 9100 are not compatible.. try returning it for either a pci (usually the white slot) or AGP which in most cases is brown.. the AGP will be your best performance.. if return is not an option.. then it seems that a new pc is in your best interest.
Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change). It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports. Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card. Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.
