X1550 black screen

I recently built a new pc , and was supplied with a x1550 pcie graphics card.i built the pc in basic form ie no extras added just yet. then when it was up n running i installed my goodies .all went well til i tried to install the graphics card ,its fan runs and it overides the onboard graphics but all i have is a black screen nothing else. iremoved the card and installed the .net software and drivers etc of the supplied disc but still nothing.so i cant use my new pc unless i take the graphics card out of the case which i think you will agree ,sort of defeats the object of having a graphics card in the first place, please help

You must change your adapter to PCI-E in your bios setup BEFORE installing this card. If the bios is set to onboard or PCI, you will get a black screen.

Hope this helps!!!

My hp Compaq DC7900 has 5 beeps with 5 red light flashing does this 3 times. then the fan kicks on. That's all it does. Anyone know what this is?


This is a sign of a pre-video memory error. If your DC7900 has a video graphics card, that card has probably failed or doesn't have enough power. On at least some of HP's Compaq DC7900, the video card uses a PCIe x16 slot.

There are two things to consider when you choose a new video graphics card: 1) it must fit in a slot in your case and 2) your power supply must meet the requirements of the card. The small tower format of the HP Compaq DC7900 came with a 240W power supply. Most modern video graphics cards often need more power. You may need to upgrade the power supply.

I hope this helps.

I need to know if I can upgrage my ET1810-03 with a Radeon HD7770 card and a 460W PSU that came with a Dell XPS 8700


Most likely. The power supply will fit, but Dell machines tend to be skimpy on the extra connectors as they are custom-built. The Video card is PCIe 3.0 standard. I could not get spcifics on your manboard, but I'm fairly certain that it is not up to the 3.0 level. PCIe is backward compatible, however. Just don't expect 3.0 level performance if you mainboard only supports the 1.1 standard. Basically you are racing the Ferrari in your driveway.

Hi I have a supermicro x8sti Server Board inside


Basically you have two choices for installation of video card:
1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or
2. Purchase PCI express riser card and to install most full-sized PCI Express cards (Check this link for PCI Riser )

What videokard working for acer wg43m


The wg43m uses a PCIe graphics card... so theoretically any PCIe card shold work with it... however, if its in its original acer case... you have two problems.
First, its a small form factor case, which means you will have to get a low profile card...
second, if it is, as I suspect, in a SFF case, it will also have a pretty crappy acer power supply...ie. around 300watt or less, which will limit what cards you can use.

If you just want a working card... most low end PCIe cards in the $50-100 price range should work, so long as they A.. have a low profile bracket, and B, don't consume too much power... ie, usually, if they dont have a dedicated 12 volt power plug and just draw power from the PCIe port, you SHOULD be OK.

If you want a gaming pc however, I don't like your chances in the current case and PSU...

Hope this info helps...

My tower comes on but i cant see anything on the screen. sometimes it works but most of the time i see nothing except a box that says monitor is working, check pc.


the graphics card in your pc maybe loose. the grapics card is located where you plug your vga/dvi connection in to the back of the tower. If you slide open the town you will see the graphics card in a brown slot beside the white PCI slots. check if it is secure.

Also the vga/dvi cable maybe faulty try a different cable.

Install ATI Radeon X1550 PIC on Acer Aspire E650


If you think the PC boots up but just no screen, check the Graphics settings in BIOS for first/initial diaplay with PCI instead of other Graphics Ports (on board/PCIe/PCI/AGP)? Disable on board display if any.

Updrading power supply of Dell Optiplex GX280 Small Desktop.


Hi there.
No, 400Watts will not affect your computers performance, it just means that you will be able to add more peripheral devices to your PC, for example, an external or internal hard drive or more USB devices.
Make sure you get the power supply from Dell themselves as you will find it difficult to install a standard PSU (power supply unit).

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

GeForce2 MX400


The geforce2 mx400 is an agp video card. If you want to stick to the same agp slot you don't have many options these days and the prices are very similar to PCIE slots except the PCIE is a newer technology that would provide a lot better performance.

If you can afford it you should upgrade your motherboard to one that support PCIE and then get a good PCIE video card. The best price/performance these days are the 8600GT cards so look into that. The money you save buying a new video card may even contribute significantly to a new motherboard plus you get other benefits with a newer mobo ie. faster ram, SATA technology more usb ports and support for more CPUs.

Just becareful on what CPU you are using at the moment and make sure the new motherboard supports your cpu.

alternatively look for a used agp slot graphics card ie. the ati 9800pro or nvidia 6xxx series is a good choice of a slight upgrade from where you are.

good luck
