Re: Dell 8600 and video card


You've probably got it sorted by now, if not then take a look at this site.

(I know it says 8500 but it's the same for 8600's I have one of each).

There is also some useful info on temp control

Hope this helps

Re: Dell 8600 and video card

You need to open up your pc tower and insert it into an open slot. Do this with the computer turned off and UNPLUGGED. Once installed, turn you computer on, but still plug monitor into your old video card. Assuming you're using XP or Vista? It should detect your new card and install the drivers automatically. If not, you need to install on your own. Use the CD that came with the card, if you got one. Or you can download the driver here:

Then turn off computer, plug monitor into new video card, then start computer.

You do not necessarily need to disable the built in graphic adapter, the computer can manage two different adapters.
The nVidia should show picture with standard VGA definition (800x600 only) if simply connected to the AGP or PCI slot even if drivers are not installed, and even if built in GPU is not disabled.
If there is no picture, check installation in slot, check that card is not disabled in BIOS, check video cable is well connected, and if nothing works, test the video adapter on different PC, the card may be faulty.

Here the manuals:

Uninstall your previous graphics card drivers and install the ones for your 5200, if that doesn't work try getting the new drivers from the nVidia site or just smash it with a hammer!

My Nvidia FX 5200 doesnt play videos


First update your gpu drivers.

Second your computer might be booting using your local gpu and not your FX 5200.
Change the setting's in your Bios.

Tell me if you have further problem's.

The only time that this can happen is if the driver is not installed correctly, as on install you are normally asked if you want to activate support for dual monitors, so if you havent already, uninstall the card driver, restart and install driver again from the cd or from the NVIDIA website. If you have already tried this my apologies.
