No you do this in the setup of the cmos. look for a key to hit to enter setup during start up of the computer. sometime it is del and sometime it is an f key. once in cmos setup look for system devices and enable on board graphics. this had to be disabled to use the other graphics card. good luck get back to me if you need more help

I installed a new AGP video card on my Optiplex GX260, when the computer is plugged in, I can hear the fan going but it does not boot up, help?


Unplug the computer, Check if the cable connections to everything, reseat, you may have inadvertently disloged a connection when you installed the card. wait 30 seconds or so, plug in, reboot. You say the monitor is fine, what do you see on the monitor?

I got a refurbished computer and do not know how to connect the external speakers I bought. I need a diagram or details on how to connect the speakers.


The speaker output for the Dell is the light green audio jack on the back panel. Just plug your speaker connection into that jack.

RADEON 7500 AGP Graphic Card: just reformatted my old dell optiplex gx260 and i ...


You can try reinstalling the firmware for the video card, but if that doesn't work your video card is probably dead and you'll need a new video card. The firmware is what controls the video card, so if the computer shut off while the firmware was in the process of being rewritten, there's a good chance some of the code needed to run the card got erased or scrambled.

I need a new graphics card for my dell optiplex gx260 what can i buy


What you are looking for is an AGP 4x Low Profile video card, The GX260 is designed to be a business Small Form Factor computer so you are really limited on what you can upgrade to.
What are you looking to do with the video card?
How much do you want to spend on the upgrade?
What Country are you shopping in?

I want a driver for my dell optiplex gx260 vga i am using a vista operating sestem


As the person above said, that video card will not work with Windows Vista. You are basically left with 2 options:

1. Downgrade the computer to Windows XP, in which the video card will work with

2. Purchase a new video card like this one

Really the choice is yours, but I would downgrade and save the $!

Using dual monitors on a Dell Optiplex GX260


You cant.. Unless the nvidia card you added has two video OUTs. Plugging in a aftermarket card causes the motherboard to disable the onboard video..
If your nvidia card has two "outs" then you can use two monitors... most newer nvidia cards support this. sometimes it requires an adaptor, but usually it was included in the box

My pc just bought will not work


if you computer has a graphics card you would find a connector on the bottom, there will be two places where you can connect you computer to, one would be on the middle and the other would be near the bottom the connector woudl look blue in colour, make sure if you have a video card installed, you would see a blue colour port near the bottom and it would be horizontal, connect the monitor video cable to that port and this issue would be resolved

Pci-e question


Hi

I am afraid Dell OptiPlex GX260 has no support for PCI-e.

You can however install a half-length AGP (66MHz) graphics card.
