Contact your PC's manufacture and ask for the proper settings or you may be able to Google search it by typing in your PC make and Model and then ask how the bios settings are supposed to be set at.

SOURCE: video graphics card

being a PCI card, not a AGP or PCI-E the system may not simply switch to that one a primary display adapter when you install it, in the bios under advanced system settings or intergrated periferals, you should have an option to change the primary display adapter, make sure a PCI adapter is included.. if it isnt, chage it to recognise a PCI card as a primary adapter, turn the system off, and install your card then, depending on the bios/model of the mainboard on some of those dells, it may be a little hard to find, ive had to play with a few of them

Is the connection different. If so you need a VGA to DVI converter. You can get this at Best Buy or Fry's or any computer store.

The memory issue should not be related. Go to control panel and then to the system icon and click system is should show the memory. You can also go in to the system bios to see actually how much you have. When the system boots. It should give you an option to go to the setup screen. The screen goes by quick so you may need to reboot a couple of times.

Please rate my response.

So if this is a slimline pc you are kind of limited in upgrade options
space being the biggest , then being followed with cooling ability, the best advice I can give you if specs say 350 is needed i wouldn't chance having the card pull more of a load off of the PSU than what is rated for it. Hope this helps

We can troubleshoot it and repair it. There is no doubt of that in my mind. But now that they admitted their fault, this is the time to make them fix your computer. If everyone would do the same thing the stealing of the customer's money will be decreased by a large measure. Again, if you want us to work on it, we are ready able and willing. But the truth must be told..... Thank you for your considering us and your choice to work with our service. My name is Constantin (arzconst is an internal nickname used with the Fixya.com).

SOURCE: Optiplex 520 pci video cards Dual monitors & Vista

There is a work-around for Vista. Look here.

A little bit down you can read:
"A user could force the installation of a XPDM driver for each of these devices, and therefore get heterogeneous multi-adapter multi-monitor to work as in Windows XP."

If you can go that way depends mainly on the manufacturer of the video card driver.

If you are going to sell all your nice 22" monitors - let me know...;-)

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

My ATI firepro V7800 makes continuous beeping noise. PC does not boot when I turn it on.....pls help!!!


1) Believe the continuous beeping you hear is a BIOS Beep Code, stating you have a graphics problem. Computer, not video card, is beeping.

2) Do you have the external 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the graphics card, from the Power Supply?

3) IF, your Power Supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, are you using TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, connected to a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

To wit;

6-pin PCI-Express power cable example, and also showing a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable on the right,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Example of a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
(Misnomered by many as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make that type of connector. The name stuck, kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note the color code of the wires used in a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable.

Red = 5 Volt wire
Yellow = 12 Volt wire
(All are DC Voltage)
Black = Ground wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

The 4-pin Peripheral power cable has ONE Yellow 12 Volt wire.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

The most power that a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot can deliver, is 75 Watts.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

"This cable is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. PCI Express motherboard slots can provide a maximum of 75 watts."

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

"The older 6 pin version officially provides a maximum of 75 watts (although unofficially it can usually provide much more)"


The ATI FirePro V7800 graphics card requires 150 Watts by itself.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot CANNOT deliver the recommended power (Wattage) needed, therefore an external power cable capable of delivering 75 Watts is needed.

What happens if you just use ONE 4-pin Peripheral power cable, in a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot contact pins -> BURN

The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card -
BURN

The connection on the graphics card for the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable - BURNS

The contact pins in the 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable -
BURN

If it is too bad, and cannot be remedied by cleaning, the motherboard is TOAST, and so is the graphics card.

DOWNLOAD ATI RADEON PCI EXPRES X300 SE 128MB


Need more information on the exact problem and what and where you downloaded. I assume you are replacing the integrated video adapter with a PCI expansion slot.

You must disable the integrated Motherboard video adapter in the BIOS. The new card must be compatible with the expansion bus in your computer. New drivers new from the manufacturer must be installed before the PCI express card.

Follow the instructions included with the new graphics card.

I have an Asrock Alive NF7G-FullHD motherboard. The pci-e slot is not working what maybe the problem of these boards? I have 4pieces of these boards all have the same problem. Thanks for your input.


You have to change the BIOS settings for the Primary Graphics Adapter. Restart the system and go to BIOS Setting and Change the Primary Graphics Adaptor to [PCI Express]
(This item will switch the PCI Bus scanning order while searching for video card. It allows you to select the type of Primary VGA in case of multiple video controllers.)
The default value of this feature is [PCI]. Configuration options:
[PCI], [Onboard] and [PCI Express].

Asrock Alive NF7G-FullHD User Manual
Please refer to Page 46 of the above Manual

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I recentl reformatted my computer and although I have been able to ascertain the make and model of my Graphics card I can still not succesfully install/update the drivers and get it working.


And you re-checked your BIOS and it has the right 512mb and PCI adapter setting. You also might try in the hardware device manager since I know the software usually does it. You may be stuck between the 2 videos adapters your using too. Make sure the BIOS is set for the card's PCI. does it have a little e' to it.

It looks like your trying to install a PCI Graphics Adapter. If that is the case, I would try the PCI Graphics Adapter any Slot other than Slot 1 or Slot 2. That is unless, your PCI Graphics Adapter Card is a PCI Express, then that must be installed in Slot 1, if the Board supports it. If the PCI Graphics Adapter is a PCI-I Card then it must be installed in Slot 2.

Check AMD's site, they have or already implemented standards on their support chips. The standard, as I understand it, is Slot 1 - PCI Express, Slot 2 - PCI-I, if you're using those Slot for PCI Graphics Adapter.

It should be possible to use those Slots (1 & 2) for any PCI Cards that is not a PCI Graphics Adapter, be careful, I have not checked that out. Those do not handshake as Video Adapter, so the PCI card should not be thrown or overdriven, the PCI-Express and PCI-I, to my knowledge is only for Grahpics Adapters, should that be different, then Slot 1 for only PCI Express Cards and Slot 2 for only PCI-I Cards.

Me, for now, Slot 1 for Express, Slot 2 for PCI-I, and the rest of the Slot for all else. If your PCI Graphics Adapter is not an Express or PCI-I, install in any Slot other than Slot 1 or Slot 2.

Motherboard detects nothing


anniegms, I had the same problem with a new Asus board running a Dual Core Duo Quad processor. The boards BIOS was not updated to handle the Dual Core Duo yet. I had to switch processors to a P4. Use a different PC to make a BIOS update disk. Update the BIOS and switch processors back. But I had all the same symptoms of yours. However I did/do have a PCI-E XFX Fatality (Nvida) based graphics card. I would check or swap processors, it sounds like the board is waking up but not the processor. Just my thoughts.... PCdok
