6 beeps with regular intervals , a short puase and it repeats.. nothing comes out on screen and com does not boot..


As stated above, you can try removing the Memory and re-seating the Memory cards.

However, 6 Beeps indicates an issue with the Video Card. If your computer is configured with a Video Card, try removing and re-seating it by following the instructions provided in the Manual. You can access the Service Manual for Studio XPS 8100 from the link below:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/studio8100/en/index.htm

If the issue is not resolved even with re-seating the Video card, you need to check with the Warranty of the computer with Dell and get if it is under warranty, get a replacement Graphic Card.

All the Best.

Seems out of date.runs slow bought from a friend they kept in closet seems to work ok i had to reboot it once it has ran ok since affraid to do to much dont want to crash it.


The best trick for speeding this thing up, killing the malware and any viruses is to use their (Make A Restoration Disc) Feature.
You will then have everything set up exactly the way it was the day your friend bought it.
Remember that this system has the slower AMD 3800+ so it won't be as fast as a dual core PC. When I get one of these in my shop I do 2 things to speed it up. First I add ram, 4 gigs total is best, then I turn off the onboard Video and add a new Video card with 512 megs of video ram or better.
Your PC has an AM2 socket, so a simple CPU upgrade will make your rig absolutely scream with speed. Just buy a new dual core AMD AM2 cpu. I will provide a link for you below.

Your PC has these components:

Key Specs
Processor: 2.4GHz Athlon 64 3800+
Memory: 1GB DDR2
Storage: 160GB hard drive
Optical Drives: Double-layer DVD±RW
Monitor: None
Graphics: Integrated nVidia GeForce 6100/nForce 430 MCP
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Basic

What type of video card may I order to go in this unit


hi, im new with the whole computer knowledge but i have done some research seeing as i have this comp as well. just like me your needing to upgrade the comp to be more sufficient and up to par with todays upgrades seeing as this comp is old and prolly got it at Best Buy. but if your going to do some heavy media, gaming etc. i suggest getting a new comp that is up to date with todays changes. only reason why is the video card you require for this comp is a PCI which i have read is the lowest quality and probably soon to be obsolete that many programs dont support anymore. dont get me wrong you can still buy them, but dont expect high quality performance. remember you need a PCI not PCI Express (PCIE) to fit the slot that your motherboard has. ive done alot of searches for PCI video cards, i suggest just to google it or check newegg.com. im still actually looking around myself. im sure if you have this comp your also looking for an inexpensive part. anyways i hope this helped.

my upgrades are:
500 hard drive
60 slave
2g memory

Monitor gets no signal


yes. it is almost positively the video card.
you can get a PCI video card and install that in an open slot.
if you don't need to play games, you don't need a fancy one, just a basic card.

What video card would be compatable with a insignia computer model d300?


I would recommend any of the Nvidia or ATI video cards that come in the PCI format. Your computer only has PCI slots. These are the older slot types, so your options will be limited for brand new cards, but there's still plenty out there. As long as the slot type is PCI and the chipset is a major manufacturer, it should work with no problem. Do NOT get any video card that says "PCI Express" or "PCI-X" - they won't fit.

I have a Gateway 702Ge desktop. I have upgrade the ram to 4gb. I want to upgrade the video card for gaming purposes. Best Buy gave me a Pny XLR8 GE Force 9800 Gt Graphics card x16 PCi express. It will fit...


It may have been a return, and yes you most likely need the power. Take it back get a new one. Also you may need a new power supply for your computer because the new card power requirements may be too much for stock systems.

My acer aspire t180 ua380a desktop comp will not post. I turn on the comp and the red light comes on but no green lights and again the comp will not post. I have reseated the ram and cpu.


If it won't post you have a bad memory chip or memory slot try a different slot. Do you have more than one stick of ram? if so remove one stick and try it in different slots, if it does not post then buy some new ram.

Hi,
         Ok best thing to try, which will quickly solve your problem would be to go here

http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srl

Then Click where it says : "Find out if you can run
that game on your PC"

Look in the drop down list and select The Sims 2 Double Deluxe PC game. Then Click on the "Can You Run it" Button.

It wiil then Scan your System & Build a detailed profile of Hardware & Software installed, and will inform you of what software or hardware is/is not compatable with the game you want to play.

I have a Pentium 4 3ghz Processor, 1GB Ram, Direct X 9.0c, Win XP SP3 installed & after running a test to see if my Machine would handle The Sims 2 Double Deluxe, it passed on all areas except Video Card. & This is what it informed me :

Video Card
Minimum: A T&L-capable video card with at least 32 MB of video RAM. ATI Radeon series 8500 or better, NVIDIA GeForce series GeForce2 GTS and better

You Have: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family (Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset)

 Video Card Features - Minimum attributes of your Video Card
 
 Video RAM: Required - 32 MB , You have - 128 MB
 Video Card 3D Acceleration: Required - Yes , You have - Yes
 Video HW Transform & Lighting: Required - Yes , You have - No
