Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I Won an XTASY 9600 128MB AGP DUAL MONITOR CARD AND WOULD LIKE TO INSTALL IT
look..the graphic card is a miniature board,witha radiator on it,and it is situated perpendicular on to the mainboard.you will see that from its behind there a wire which goes directly to the monitor.thats the recognise part.
in case your computer has no video card,just onboard graphic adapter you have to identify the AGP or the PCIE slot from your mainboard.
this is how you do
look on the mainboard..youll see the processor un the middle..big,with a fan on it(ventilator)
under it..there are some long slots..like 10,12 cm long..paralles between them and paralles with the lowest laturaof your computer case..
the fisrt from up...the one which is situated upper is the agp one
I exclude the possibility to be a PCIE slot because your computer is not a today one..you more than sure you have a AGP slot.
ussualy is a brown or red collor..anyway it is different by th eother slots paralel with it.
ok..you put there the video card and voila...youre done.
however if you had no video before just the integrated on mother board solution,go in bios and desactivate the onboard video.
after that,put the instalation cd or just the ati catalist driver for your new nice agp ati radeon 9600 video board.
with all done,you should have a new board:)
like an advice..I dont recomand you to do this alone..go to a specialised service and let them do it for you,ask them to let you see the job for a next time...but now..if you never did that ..its quite ok to let a specialist hanndle it.,ok?
oh by the way..you may surf for a while on internet to see some photos with video boards atached on mainboards..
i give you the link whwere I found your dell..It might not have a video board,but only a integrated video on mother board..
inform me later how it went,ok?bye
