Question about Dell Precision Workstation 490 - DT - 64 BIT Dual Core Intel Xeon Processor 5110 1.6... PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have an FX5800 Nvidia CAD card with 4 GB ram, for high end graphics rendering. It is installed in a Dell Precision 490 with dual Xeons and 64gb of ram > I fire up the computer and it runs ok but no signal is coming out to the monitors I take the same monitor and hook it into another machine and monitor works fine. The FX5800 has two DVI ports. I have used a 15 pin VGA cable with an adapter to fit the VGA cable to plug into the FX5800, still no screen signal. The card is running fine fan is on and so is green light on the card. I have removed and re-inserted the card and still nothing. I have even switched plugs; there are two inside the card, still nothing. I do NOT have the optional side card just the main card. I have reseated the RAM and still nothing same two fast beeps after boot up. I have switched the ram around and nothing. Any suggestions

It sounds like the card is bad. If it came with the computer, I suggest getting in contact with Dell.

The two beeps are a post error, most linked with a bad Video card. If it is still within the warranty period, it's best to get the part changed.

Thanks, Please Rate. :-)

I have done a monitor upgrade i.e, DELL S2340L FULL HD1080P monitor and my system has the following specs: Motherboard:M2N MX SE PLUS Processor: Athlon X2 Dual core @ 1.93Ghz RAM: ADATA 2GB DDR2...


Unless you are using a high end motherboard with the latest chipset, you will find it very difficult to get an "onboard" graphics chip to output that resolution. And your motherboard just doesn't have the power to display at that resolution. You will need to find a graphics card that will display that kind of resolution. The Nvidia GTX 650 or the Radeaon 7750 are both capable of handling that display and are cheap (in terms of graphics cards anyway).

Usb ports in front on the PC are not working in windows 7


Hello try the vista driver from here:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/precision-490-dt

You are probably needing the chipset driver, so the usb function will work again.

You can also visit intel here:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/

And run the driver update utility, by installing a bit of software.

Make also sure there are no missing drivers in the device manager.

Hope this will help you

I want some information about Nvidia GeForce 9400 GT 1GB DDR 2


If you are using Dual Core the mother board you are using may have PCI Express Slot. So that you may install Graphics card. Only for particular lower end mother board doesn't have this feature. Any way tell me your motherboard make and model no. e.g., Intel DG31PR, 945GNT, DG41TY etc.,

Ati or nvidea? which is more reliable and well built for dell


To me it is probably personal preference. I have always like Nvidia, and I have had a couple of systems that had ATI. Nvidia to me seems more stable and more reliable. You might search some sites for benchmark comparisons

Fan noise


I was having the same problem and I just fixed it yesterday. You will never guess what was causing the loud fan noise.... give up? the NVIDIA Quadro Graphics Cards that were in there...... I bought an ATI Radeon 3870 yesterday popped it in, installed the drivers, and now my computer does not sound like an airplane anymore....... this card is amazing and its on newegg now for 80 bucks..... itds GDD4 as well and the games look better than a playstation 3........ this card also improved my overall system performance drastically.....
