Having problems installing a Geforce fx5500 on my dell deminsion

Hello people..
Im kinda a newbie at this. I have a dell dimension 3000 OS XP,
P4 processor 2.8 ghz 16 kb cache and 1024 secondary cache
500 gig harddrive and 512 ram. With a 250 watt power supply.
Well heres the scoop. Ive started out disabling the original Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller [Display adapter]. Then going in bios Integrated devises and switching video controller to auto. Then i shut pc off and installed the geforce fx5500 and plugged the monitor into the pci card and rebooted. Then had no video at all and could not get video even when i plugged monitor back into original port. I had too take the geforce out of mt pc to get a picture back on.
Now too add i researched this geforce graphics card for compatibility and it should be compatible.
If there is ANYBODY out there plzzzzz give me some advice on how to get this thing running TYVM

Sounds like yo had the same Problems that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the monitor cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is running with your card you can also see that from the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped  install the driver first then disable download latest drivers here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us

I can't find msi geforce fx 5500 driver for windows 7 32 that can work correctly


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.msi.com/product/vga/FX5500-TD256.html#/?div=Driver&os=All

Here is no drivers for windows 7.

And no driver here, at nvidia:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us

You have to buy a new graphic card, to support windows 7.

Good luck

it would probably be easier to just swap the hard drives. then when you go to boot, put in an OS install cd (Mac OS X ; Windows XP ; Windows Vista ; Windows 7) and it will walk you through the steps and partition your hard drive for you.

Problem installation video card


Hello Virna, i have that exact graphics card and dell GX270 desktop here at home, tho it has been awhile since i removed the Nvidia PCI card for a more favorable AGP card. From what i remember, first check your BIOS (hit F2 on startup) and select integrated devices, scroll down and make sure your default video output is either PCI (if available) or AUTO) exit saving changes. If that yields no result. Plug in a second monitor to your old integrated video output, if you can view windows after bootup from there, then you can install the proper Nvidia display driver for windows Xp (available here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html ). After installing, right click on the desktop, select properties, display settings tab, and make sure the Geforce card is the main monitor and the desktop monitor. Click apply, unplug the integrated VGA output, and restart. Hope this helps.
