Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook

Fried Video Card

Have fried the video card. All it will run is 640 x 480 8 bit. I have found a possible replacement for the Nvidia 7190 card that came with the system.
It is a Dell Inspiron E1705 Video Activator, Part # LS-2883P.
It is supposed to activate the chipset on the motherboard.
Was wondering if anybody out there knows if this will work with my system to activate the onboard video chipset?

    Thanks for the input on the Dell Inspiron E1705 PC Notebook. The video card was overheated, due to cat hair in the cooling fins. It still works, but only in safe mode with the most basic (8 bit 640 x 480) settings. Tried the basic drivers from dell and upgraded from nvidia also. Same results on all accounts. Guess the owner doesnt want to pony up for a replacement card. She could buy a new pc for what they want from dell and ebay isn't much help either. Again, thanks for the input.

If you "fried" the video card you wouldn't get anything on the screen. Most Likely the wrong driver got installed or you need to check video properties to set video screen size and drivers installed.
Happens when installing updated video drivers.
Note: MS Update has installed incorrect drivers because thay were "NEW" but were incompatible with the video card on my systems before. Had to unistall "NEW" and reinstall "OLD".

I have a tower that's gateway and I have an aftermarket video card installed (Nvidia Geforce GT220) and i want to run dual mopnitors....one of the internal video and the other off the GeForce. both cards...


I don't think It's possible. Normally the Graphics card over rides the onboard Video. You would have to get another Graphics card with duel video ports.

My video card fried, bought a new one, plugged it in, monitor display


Possible reasons:

> The newly bought GCard not compatable with the motherboard (Check for PCI-E/AGP logo on your Gard box and see if your motherboard supports the same.)

>There might be issues with the your SMPS (Damaged/Over current supply/Current Fluctuations, possible cause for getting a fried video card you mentioned.)

See if this helps.

Hello ognetpc, did you install 32-bit or 64-bit video drivers ? Example if you have windows 7 64-bit you must install 64-bit video driver, because nvidia 32-bit video driver will not work properly. I found latest drivers for you video card. Click save driver to your computer, install the driver, don't forget to restart the computer. Here is the link.

Copy and paste link into your browser and press enter.




For Windows 7, Vista 32-bit

Monitor display "No Signal" tried with other Monitors but not working either.....can i use a video card??


You can use a video card. It is possible that your motherboard is fried which is preventing the video output from working. You can try using another video card and see if that works.

When I try to turn the laptop on, it comes on for approx 1 second and turns off. The indicator lights flash and you hear a noise from the cdrom. No display on the screen, no beeps. It does this when...


It looks like it's one of the following: a) fan not running and CPU overheating; b) video card fried; c) CPU fried
Possible solutions:
a) Check to see if you can hear the fan running when you turn it on. It should run all the time, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, but ALWAYS on. Check if the laptop has too much dust inside it and clean it up (remove the bottom cover and blow air using a compressed air can). If the fan runs ok and is always running, then go to the next point
b) if the video card is fried, there is nothing you can do. Video cards in laptops are usually part of the motherboard and is not something that can be replaced or repaired. You'll need a new montherboard... and it is more convenient to replace the whole laptop. Sell your old one for parts.
c) Same as above. If the CPU is fried, it can't be replaced or repaired. Get a new laptop.

Video Card issues: fried?


Yes, it sounds like either the video card is bad, or the PCI-e slot on the MB is bad. If you do indeed have a PCI-Express x16 slot on the MB, than yes a 9800 series should do fine provided your power supply is up to the requirments needed for the card.

Nvidia geforce FX 5200 having poblems booting pc....


as your primary pc now has a working graphics card . I would guess your graphics card is fried in all honesty there is really no hope in repairing it especially for the cost of one of those cards, if you are simply using your second pc for non graphic intensive apps then I am sure you could find an ol pci grpahics card down the local dump for next to nothing hope this helps.
