Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Display Problems I have tried to install a new PCI video card and cannot get it to work. The card is an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 with 256mb of Ram. I have tried all 3 PCI slots, but the screen remains blank, though the PC appears to start up as normal. I have both uninstalled and disabled the onboard Intel graphics, but unless I plug the monitor back into the onboard serial connector - the display remains blank. I am running the original CRT Dell Monitor. Does anyone have a solution or is my motherboard dead? Thanks

Enable your onboard graphics and plug your monitor into the onboard. start up your pc and install any needed drivers for the secondary graphics card. right click on your desktop and go to your display properties you should see a faded out screen that has a 2 and a lit screen that has a 1 right click on the faded screen and check enabled then move your monitor cable over to the new vid card right click on the lit 1 and disable it making 2 your primary.

Card didn't work while fan is running


That is a really low end video card. The same card is available for $10-30 on bidding sites. Get another one or upgrade to something with more horsepower if you like games or watch video. Just make sure your motherboard will support the new video card. THe one you looks to be a standard PCI (older format).

Hi.

You do not necessarily need to disable the built in graphic adapter, the computer can manage two different adapters.
The nVidia should show picture with standard VGA definition (800x600 only) if simply connected to the AGP or PCI slot even if drivers are not installed, and even if built in GPU is not disabled.
If there is no picture, check installation in slot, check that card is not disabled in BIOS, check video cable is well connected, and if nothing works, test the video adapter on different PC, the card may be faulty.

Here the manuals:

GEFORCE FX 5500 video quality low, slow motion videos and games


well if your trying to game on a pc the 5500 isnt quite sufficient. If you dont know about nvidia you are about 5 generations back of days cards. So the card wont handle any of todays games. If your really trying to game i suggest you build/buy a new rig. But as far as playing videos, quality should be good. Try goin to nvidia.com and downloading the newest drivers.

try downloading " Driver Magician ". This searches for and updates all drivers on your system. There is a small fee for registration but this has been a God-send for me.
