Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card
First, can you look on the back of your neighbor's PC and get the exact model #? Also, upon boot, can you also get the BIOS manufacturer and its date?
If the BIOS is not recognizing the newer video card, it might need an upgrade, if one is available. I would check the DELL site:
Upon reboot, listen for system beeps and look them up here:
Does the newer graphics card show up under CONTROL PANEL > DEVICES?
If this Dell PC is as old as you say, can I assume it is still running Windows ME? If so, was Universal Plug and Play ever installed - check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/262458?
Due to the ages of all this gear, you'll likely have to install device drivers for the "8Mb 3D card" but you will first need the BIOS to recognize it.
