Hi there, it may not be the mother board, it may be that the graphics card doesn't have the drivers for your system. Bring it to a computer shop and they will install the drivers for you.

Can't get 1600x900 Resolution


Your graphics card may not be able to display this screen resolution.
Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and move the slider on the Screen resolution - to get as close to 1800 X 900 then click apply.

Dell dimension 5100 will not boot, numbers 2 and 4 illuminated on front panel


According to the manual this indicates a possible failure of the graphics card. The solutions from your manual: • If the computer has a graphics card, remove the
card, reinstall it (see page 71), and then restart
the computer.
• If the problem still exists, install a graphics card
that you know works and restart the computer.
• If the problem persists or the computer has
integrated graphics, contact Dell (see page 116).

The manual is available as a PDF at:

I hope this helps.

Upgrade graphic card


Your RAM is expandable to 4GB. 400-MHz and 533-MHz DDR2 unbuffered SDRAM is your type.
For your graphics card, you may use either a PCI slot or PCIeX slot. You'll get the best performance if you use the PCUeXpress slot.Price would be determined by the vendor from which you purchase it. Installation is as simple as installing the drivers from the CD that comes with it and pushing the card into the slot after you have turned off the PC and removed the cover. Instructions for that can be found at
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/index.htm
I use nVidia cards myself and find them reliable and easy to configure. Let me know if you have any other questions. Please rate my answer.

Dell Dimension 5100 won't start with new FireMV 2400 PCI Express video card


Did you check to make sure the video card is installed in the right spot? Has the onboard video card been disabled in Windows - and when you say it will not boot, do you mean physically no POST. Do you get any error codes? If you can get into the CMOS (Bios) Setup screen - change the primary display adapter from the onboard to AGP, PCI, or PCI-E depending on which card that is. Use this information at your own risk - hope it helps.

Installing Problems


It's a hardware incompatibility with windows vista. for example your graphics card on your Inspiron might not be fully supported in windows vista and your Laptop's graphics card is supported by Vista. Most of the times we can find this incompatibility is with graphics cards. Download and install the newest drivers for your inspiron's graphics card. I have seen your inspiron has an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card. The windows Vista drivers can be downloaded here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista32/common-vista32
