Be careful with this computer. The cooling system works by blowing air INTO the machine over the cpu then the heat slowly comes out of the holes on the side panel (on the left side of the machine). One reason the text may be blurry is because the video card is heating up too much. This problem is specific to this machine. Most computers have the cooling fan blowing the heat out of the case and not sucking air into the case. On the plus side at least this PC is near silent right? I would know since I own this machine. Amazingly silent it is.

What is the video card slot type


From the information available on the Dell website I would say you could fit any PCI-E you can afford. The thing to consider is the power output of the power supply, which isn't great and it is not easy to upgrade on dell machines. So I would suggest you spend no more than about 75 (GBP)

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

Video Card upgrade for Dim 4700 to 1920 x 1200


go to dell's web site.
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/upgrades/en/segmenter?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~ck=mn

Fill in the requested information and they will give you the details of your computer, and recommended upgrades.

Does your current card meet your needs? The 24 inch should not need any thing special other than loading its drivers, and setting up the video. You will of course be using the "D"
15 connector on this monitor and a mating video cable. These have to be purchased on their own sometimes, so make sure one comes with your monitor.

No video


HI,
You can go into the BIOS , under onboard devices. Change the primary video controller to PCI.
refer to the following screen
http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4700/sm/syssetup.htm#wp1052347

If the cards are not detected on the board. Then the problem could be of the PCIe slot .


Thanks

Video Card


It is likely to be your old graphics drivers conflicting with the new card - Put the old card back in and be sure to remove them

1. Start
2. Right Click My Computer
3. Properties
4. Hardware Tab
5. Device Manager
6. Display Adapter
7. Uninstall

Turn your PC off and place the new card in then reboot

Install the new drivers after booting.
