Question about Graphics Cards
I have a 32MB ATI Rage 128 Ultra, graphics card. My new monitor is a Samsung 226BW, the max resolution is 1680x1050 and my computer will only allow 1280x1024. What new type of graphics card should I get?
How do i update my ATI graphics card

Anything modern should be able to handle that resolution. should say on the package what the max reso is and if its over what you need id say its a safe bet. That card your using is really old and out dated. i dont even think you can by cards that have less then 128mb of vram on them anymore.. hope this helps, good luck.

My name is Todd and I'm with Dell's online outreach program. Have you tried that system with a different monitor, or is that monitor working correctly on another system? Just trying to confirm it's the video card and not the monitor itself.
Another step you can try is to go into the BIOS / System Setup of that GX 240 to see whether the problem is only happening as it tries to load the drivers. I sort of doubt that it is from your description but you can test it pretty quickly by tapping the <F2> button when the Dell logo would first appear. If the video is normal in the System Setup that would let you know if the basic video functions of the card are working correctly.
But to be honest it sounds like the video card is failing from your description. I assume your system's service contract has expired?
If you would like more detailed help feel free to email us at Customer_Advocate@Dell.com. Please include my first name, Todd, in the subject line of the email and reference this issue so I can pull up information to try to help you.
