Q: Just "installed" Radeon R7 250 graphics card on my Dell Optiplex 9020. Black screen when I plug the monitor into the card. Help!

Hi Yall,
So I have successfully (I think) installed my new Radeon R7 250 "low profile" graphics card on my Dell Optiplex 9020. I plugged it in the motherboard, started up the computer then went to Device Manager to update the drivers--which I did. Side note: Ever since plugging the graphics card into the motherboard, some tasks like starting programs or starting windows take 2-10X as long as they used to. Anyhow, it then asked for a restart, which I did. The computer still took extra long to start any program, and when I plugged the monitor into the graphics card all I got was a black screen.
Take two: I then read that I should have uninstalled my current graphics driver (Intel integrated HD graphics) before I installed my new graphics card, but failing this, I could uninstall my old graphics card and change the default graphics card in the bios. I uninstalled the old card and went to the bios, but could not change the default...can't remember exactly what it called it, graphics controller or something. I could see that intel HD graphics was still the default (this is after uninstalling intel HD graphics and then restarting) but could find no way to change this. Supposedly dell will make the switcheroo on its own...but it doesn't seem to have.
Take three: Next I physically removed the graphics card, restarted the computer, then physically inserted the graphics card again, then started the computer again (no, I did not insert the card while the computer was on).
I'm not sure what else to try. The computer still starts programs exceedingly slowly and still gives me a black screen when I try to plug the monitor into the graphics card--which the computer recognizes as existing in the Device Manager. What is more, the Intel HD graphics card that I uninstalled appears to have reinstalled itself as it is now visible again in the Device Manager plus it has the little control program accessible from the "hidden icons" popup menu off of the toolbar in the lower right-hand corner.
I can't help but think that if I could get the bios to prefer the radeon card I'd be set--but I don't see an option for this. Help?

The power supplies in the SFF are so small and the case is soo small that there are few to none upgrades.  USFF systems have no slots whatsoever.
The 19W ASUS EAH5450 would be the ONLY one I know works.

The Silent ASUS card fits all models Except the USFF.  Optiplex Tower is a better choice because you can use much better cards.
USFF isn't upgrade-able due to no slots.

I've got an OptiPlex 9020 SFF and am wondering what is the best possible graphics card that can be installed given the following constraints: 

Single slot - due to the PSU being a short distance away from the PCI Express x16 slot 
Length < 17 cm (6.5") - it appears the SFF can only take cards of length upto about 16/17 cm 
Only low profile/half height - due to SFF 
Powered by PCI Express only - due to PSU not having additional power outlets, and PSU is a 255W 90% unit 

I'm considering one of these options: 

PowerColor AXR7 250 1GBD5-HLE http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JQUBLY4/ 
VisionTek AMD Radeon 7750 SFF 1GB  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008RLHFQ6/ 

Will either of these cards be compatible with my 9020 SFF. Are there other better options I can consider? 

A:Graphics card for OptiPlex 9020 SFF

Low Profile cards by definition are 25w max.
Radeon 5450 = 19W
R7 250 =  68W
Thats why Fanless cards are used because they cannot afford the power for the fan. All sizes of ×4 and ×8 PCI Express cards are allowed a maximum power consumption of 25 W. All half-height cards are initially 10 W; X16 cards may configure themselves as 'high-power' to reach 25 W, while half-height ×1 cards are fixed at 10?W.

Even if you get a Tower You CANNOT USE Double wide cards because they don't Physically fit. Tower X16 Slots are marked 75W and have a 305W power supply not 255W.

A:What "maximum" graphic card can I use in Dell Optiplex 755 SFF

No such model card works with ALL SIZES.
MOST cards DO NOT FIT and WILL NOT WORK.
The slot is only 1 card wide.
The power supply is 305W or LESS depending on size.
the 755 is not a gaming system.
75W card max and ONLY with Mini tower.
Best single slot card for tower is a GT740.

Hi there,
I have recently got a Nvidia NVS Quadro 420 graphics card and have tried to connect up to 4 screens, Unfortunately this hasn?t worked and I was hoping you can help.
The equipment I have is;
Dell Optiplex 380 desktop computer, running windows 10 32-bit.
Cables being used are;
VHDCI to DVI-D splitter to 4 screens,
DVI-D to VGA straight connection to connect 4 VGA displays
So this setup goes as follows;
VHDCI >  VHDCI to DVI-D Splitter > DVI-D to VGA straight connection > VGA cable to each screen
With the above setup, Looking at the graphics card theres power going to it as fan is spinning but the screens remain unresponsive.
I have also looked in the BIOS to check if there anything there stopping it from working, everything looks ok to me.
Is there anything else I can try?
Thanks

I've had my HKC 21.6" monitor for over a year now, and i've been using it with my PC at 1920 x 1080 with no problems.
However, two days ago the screen suddenly went black and displayed the message "Out of Range". I've had to drop the resolution to 1680 x 1050 in order to see anything.

I've tested the monitor with the same VGA cable but with a different computer - this worked fine, so i'm assuming it's something to do with my computer.
I've tried reinstalling my video drivers, but this had no effect. My card is an ATi Radeon HD 5770, haven't had any problems with it before.

Obviously this is pretty irritating since anything other than the native resolution tends to look ugly.

Any help appreciated
 

A:Monitor displays "Out of Range" at 1080p (graphics card issue?)

Best thing I can advise is. Grab the latest WHQL ATI and CCC drivers.

before installing, uninstall your ati drivers in safe mode and your monitor from device manager.

Boot into normal mode and install the drivers. Make sure in setting you take off check for only display resolutions this monitor can handle,,, ok give it a shot.. let us know.. gl

I've been having some problems with my computer recently (blue screens). I'm not 100% sure what's causing it but I have a strong feeling that it may be a faulty graphics card. The reasons why I think it might be the graphics card is because:

the screen flickers,
I once got a shock when attaching the monitor cable to the back of the graphics card (is this even safe?), and
Windows attributes the error to a 'device driver'.

Now back to my main question, can a faulty graphics card cause a monitor to "break"? Just today, my monitor is displaying all the colours wrong (a massive red tint). I've tried it on another computer and it's definitely the monitor displaying incorrect colours.
 

A:Can a faulty graphics card "destroy" a monitor?

Well, not destroy. Fry some circuitry, yes - VGA signals are 0.7V and shorting 12V to it is not a good idea

As for the shock you got.. Are you using grounded outlets and/or the same outlet for the PC and the monitor?

I am receiving the PXE-E53 error when PXE booting an Optiplex 9020, and the error does not occur when PXE booting an Optiplex 780 using the same network cable. The BIOS is at A12. Any idea why this error is happening?

A:"PXE-E53: No boot filename received" error when PXE booting an Optiplex 9020

Hi ScotofMKE,
Make sure that the "boot filename" option is present on your DHCP or BOOTP server, and that its value is set to the filename of the boot loader.
When using Microsoft DHCP server, add option 067 (Bootfile Name) to your scope. When using a Unix/Linux based (ISC) DHCP server, use the "filename" parameter for this purpose.
In the context of the BootManage Administrator, the boot loader filename is "pxboot" for PXE clients and "bpboot" for TCP/IP BOOT-PROM clients. So, if you have exclusively PXE clients, set the boot filename option to the value "pxboot". If you have exclusively TCP/IP BOOT-PROM clients, set the boot filename option to the value "bpboot". In a mixed PXE and TCP/IP BOOT-PROM client environment, you must configure your DHCP or BOOTP server so that it provides the PXE clients with the "pxboot" boot loader, and the TCP/IP BOOT-PROM clients with the "bpboot" boot loader.

I don't wish to waste money but am thinking perhaps it's time to change my Video card. At present I have the Radeon HD5570 1GB DDR3 which is quite a few years old, it's still working fine but I have just bought an LG23MP65HQ IPS monitor.
I have connected the monitors VGA to the DVI output on the card, there is no DVI connection on the monitor only VGA and HDMI.
Would it be an improvement to use the HDMI cable connections instead of the DVI/VGA? The manual says that the HDMI is for Digital Video and Audio but it also gives a warning 'that it can cause compatibility problem.'

If you think an upgrade is in order any suggestions? All the manufacturers reckon theirs is best so it's not easy to select one. My budget is around ?50-100.

Thanks

If my motherboard currently has an intigrated graphics card, but has a PCI-E slot, do I need to do anything special after inserteing my graphics card and installing the drivers, or should it just work right away?
 

A:How do you switch from an integrated graphics card to an "external" graphics card?

Most modern PCs will detect the new installation of the PCI graphics card and automatically disable the onboard graphics, so yes it should just work.

If for some reason you have problems, you may have to make a change in the bios, I cannot be more specific because each bios is different depending on manufacturer, and model of the motherboard.

Install the card, connect your monitor to it and boot up, when you get into Windows install the driver and reboot.

Don't know which docs you read, but all the 9020 manuals, and the 9020M and 9020 All-in-One manuals show a CPU fan, either listed separately or shown under the instructions to remove the heat sink.
Dell CPU fans have a sensor in them that BIOS has to read. If the sensor fails, you'd get that fan failure message. The fan will have to be replaced with another Dell OEM fan. Non-Dell fans won't have that sensor and will cause the same error message.

Hi, my video card died this morning so I installed one from a different computer. I have a three year old Dell Vostro 410 running XP Pro. I took out an nvidia G310DE from a different Dell computer and put it into my computer. I managed to get a display so I uninstalled the old ATI drivers, restarted and installed the new nvidia drivers. When I restarted, I got a black screen with a white square cursor after the windows splash screen. I can boot into safe mode with no issues though. I've tried the driver from the nvidia website, the dell CD, and let windows look for drivers. Each time, I get the same result.

I've been at this for the past 4 hours now and can't think of what else to do. Thanks for your help!

A:Installed new graphics card and drivers - Black screen with white box cursor on start up

<<I've tried the driver from the nvidia website, the dell CD, and let windows look for drivers>>

Why would you use the drivers from the Dell CD...which I would think are only for the Intel onboard video?

Did you disable the onboard video in the BIOS settings?

Did you completely uninstall all the ATI software...both via Device Manager and via Add/Remove Programs?

I think I'd take a look at Device Manager and see what's reflected there.

seems good, but when i run the .exe at the end i get an error "Please shutdown and plug Realtek PCI card to complete installation". Dont know what to do here as I thought it was an integrated network controller.

Best part is that when turning 9020 on with monitor cable unplugged (which is D-Sub) after windows finishes loading then plugging dell monitor it displays everything fine. Monitor is ok - works fine with dell 7010. Computer is ok - works with hp monitor. Problem appears only with dell 9020 and dell monitor together. Monitor is quite old (2008 year) so I think if there is some compatibility issue of it with new machines. It looks like this monitor is causing that computer cannot run through POST. Computer has only onboard graphics. Tried updating bios with no results.It`s a serious problem for me because I have replaced 8 dell 7010 computers with 9020 and now any of them 'isnt working'. Buying new monitor for every computer would be quite painful. Any advice would be appreciated.

I am considering purchasing the Dell 34" Ultra-wide monitor which has a maximum resolution of 3440x1440 and I'm hoping for help on what hardware I would need to run it. I don't play any games and use it primarily for Microsoft Excel, Adobe Photoshop and Premiere.

My work laptop has an Intel HD Graphics Card 3000. I've looked that up and see that its maximum resolution is 2560 x 1600 with DisplayPort, so I guess it would run at 2560 x 1440 on the new monitor. Would that look OK? Unfortunately I cannot upgrade anything on the work laptop.

My personal computer has an ATI Radeon 4200, which also has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600, and it only has a VGA and DVI output, so I think I should upgrade this to something that can handle 3440x1440 resolution. As I said, I'm not a gamer, and my personal computer is several years old and has only a 300W power supply, so I'm not in the market for anything high end. My computer does have an available PCI Express x16 slot. The graphics card I'm considering is the GTX 750Ti, $109 on Amazon. This has HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort outputs. (I've read mixed views on whether HDMI can handle that output, or if DisplayPort is needed) If I can get 3440x1440 resolution through HDMI, I'm considering the GT 710 at half the price and lower recommended power supply.

Thanks,
Eric

Is there a better video card for the Optiplex 9020 than the ADM Radeon R7 250?

Did some research on how to tell whether or not a laptop's gpu can be replaced, and still curious whether or not the inspiron 15 5000s that include the "discrete" (as in separate from the motherboard) R7 m445 would be able to have it's video card replaced. The manual for the laptop is the same across the cheaper models, which rely entirely on the integrated gpu,  and more expensive models that don't, and it doesn't include any information on it's gpu(s).
I researched more information on the Radeon m445 to find no existing non-integrated version of the gpu which would mean it couldn't possibly be discrete unless it is custom to that laptop or something but the specs on the dell page for the laptop say that the Radeon card is discrete: www.dell.com/.../hmc-video-card-inspiron-lt
So could the laptop have two on-board/integrated gpus with a motherboard that supports it, a discrete gpu that is replaceable but never mentioned to be, or is the discrete gpu nefariously soldered to a pci-e (or whichever) slot in the computer in order to make sure it is impossible to upgrade?  
I will open it up sometime and update this post if no one can give a definite answer.

I replaced the graphics card on a spare PC, but couldn't install it so changed back to the old one, but before doing so, disabled the monitor. Actually I went into Display Properties and then Monitor, Properties and under Device Usage at bottom, clicked on 'Do not use this device (disable)'

Question is, how do I re-enable it? BTW, I have it networked to other PC but can only get into shared docs

Anyway, now I get a screen view until Windows kicks in and then it goes totally blank (though I can hear Windows start via the speakers)

I've tried to start it in safe mode but it just stops with a list of driver names without going into safe mode (just seems to hang)

I tried using the last known good configuration but this didn't help either

Help please!

Thanks, Stephen

I need to upgrade graphics card so I can use an animation program (Daz Studio). When I tried to use program, I got an error saying I need to have a card that is Open GL. I'm not a gamer so I don't think I really need a top-of-the-line card.

I usually get computer stuff from OpenEgg, but I have a gift card from Dell that I need to use (from a past return).

My plan is to get a new Graphics card. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX series was recommended by Daz Studio users. I'm looking at this card:

I'm a newbie when it comes to adding hardware to a computer. Will the choices above work with my Optiplex 780?

I'm just trying to get some clarifiation before I purchase. Thanks for any help

you need a low profile card here are some links
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814139165
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814139007

Newegg has several other low profile AGP cards but those are the only ones I could find that include the smaller bracket (some of the others may offer it as an accessory from the manufacture for an extra charge but I am not sure of that or which ones would) that you need for the card to fit your case. There is one extra step in installation. You must remove the fullsized bracket and install the low profile one (this is simple and involves removeing and replaceing the two screws holding the bracket to the card). Other than that it's just like installing any other AGP card.

Hi All
My girlfriend and I recently purchased a SFF dell 755 it has 8gb ram 2.8ghz and 1tb. We both know very little about computers. When we turned the pc on we were surprised we could not play a single game on it, so we decided we needed a graphics card. Please could someone recommend a graphics card that will fit in the SFF. I think it needs to be a low profile one and low watt's..ohh and single slot I read somewhere. Around the £50 mark would be great. Were not avid gamers we'd just like to be able to play a few games. Your help is much appreciated thanks.

Hi All
I have an Optiplex 755 SFF with 275W PSU and PCI-E low-profile video slot.  The on-board graphics on this series are awful - can't playback DVD video without stutters.  I've spent a few hours trolling about the web trying to ascertain what video card will work in this 755.  The general consensus of the card "guaranteed to work" is the Radeon HD 2400 PRO.  So, I managed to track one done (after trying a 5570 & it not even letting the PC start up), got it shipped here, and installed it.  Only to find that it too won't let the PC boot.  So typical of Dell to make PCs that are unbelievably limited.  What's the point of having a PC capable of running Win 7 (will take 8GB DDR2 RAM, currently has 2GB, plus currently has a Dual-core E6550 2.3Ghz CPU) when it can't take an even modestly-spec'd card?  This is the last time I buy Dell. 
Anyway, getting past the rant (ah, much better, thanks) - why the won't this junky 755 take the supposed "guaranteed" HD 2400 PRO?  When I try to boot it up, it does that stupid pre-boot ramp up / down of the fans, then goes off, then tries again, then goes off, then on the 3rd go all the fans just go hard out & stay like that for as long as I care to leave it.  If I take the HD 2400 PRO out & put back that silly DVI adapter card in the PCI-E slot, it's all good.

You can edit. Click the green pencil. But I already did it to remove the two profane words.
The 755 came in four different chassis sizes. You chose the smallest one with the smallest power supply so you limited yourself.

When the PC starts up, the dell loading screen begins. Normally this takes around a few seconds but this time it didn't end. We've tried all the diagnostic tests and they all came back fine. Also tried disconnecting all external cables (ie headphones, ethernet etc). Powered on and off multiple times and no change. 
By the way, I don't know if this is related or not, but last night before the issue occurred, I was randomly logged out. Once it logged me back in, everything was closed and there was a small square of like TV static towards the bottom right corner. I restarted and it fixed the issue there but I don't know.
Thanks in advance, Sean

Hello,
I recently purchased a Dell Optiplex 780 MT from Ebay. The computer has the following specs: 
Processor: Q8400 2.66GHzMemory: 4GB(4x2GB) DDR3 RAM
ATI Radeon HD 3450. 
My issue is between owning the computer for a few months, I have been using the on board VGA port and recently purchased the DMS-59 to VGA and DVI adapter. When I installed the graphics card I get a message stating that the configuration is unknown and that I need to unplug the monitor from the display port. The problem I have is that with the VGA plugged into the adapter to the 3450, I get no video output. Now I have tested it on a different system and the card worked. I also changed g the configuration and turned off the message for video cards in the bios and have updated/ downgraded the bios as well. Does the system not support this card? or do I have a bad Motherboard?
Thanks

The Dell Optiplex SFF has an 240 W power supply. The PCIex16 Slot (BLUE) (Voltage supported 3.3V/12V) has the maximum wattage = 50 W, and the Nvidia Quatro 600 (low profile) has the maximum power consumption = 40 W.

Running Windows 7 pro sp1 on Acer Aspire one ZG5. I don't get it. All hardware has always worked after I replaced winXP with win7 pro on this netbook. (clean full install from bootable flash drive) Then one day recently all the sudden I have "other devices" - 6 of them, listed as "base system device" and action center is telling me "install your memory card reader driver" (of course windows update doesn't find drivers).

Here's the thing, my memory card reader works fine, both of them, and I can use them just fine. In fact, everything works as it always has so I can't figure out what the heck these "other devices" are that suddenly appeared out of nowhere for no reason. When I check device ID's each one has 4 device ID's listed. Not sure if all 6 instances of "base system device" have the same 4 device ID's listed or not but I am showing you what's under one of them.

Why would windows action center be telling me install memory card reader drivers if the readers already work and so apparently already have drivers? Does anyone have any idea what the heck is going on? All my hardware works, so how can there be drivers missing? This just doesn't make any sense to me.

As stated in the topic, I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. It came with onboard Intel Extreme Graphics 2 with 96 MB VRAM. I looked in the case and saw 2 different types of slots, so I'm thinking mabye one of those is for a graphics card?

A now old verison of cpu-z didn't have any information on my graphics card capabilties like whether it would support AGP 4X/8X, etc. Aida32 wouldn't tell me anything either. I'm getting an updated version of cpu-z now and will see if that tells me anything more.

Anyway, let me throw you some of my specs. Maybe that will help.

Dell Optiplex GX270
BIOS Version A07
Date 06/26/2006

CPU Speed Normal/Compatible
Bus Speed 533 MHZ
Processor OID F34
Clock Speed 2.80 GHz
L2 Cache Size 1024 KB

Mainboard (CPU-Z)
Dell Computer Corp.
Model OFG015
Chipset Intel i865P/PE/G/i848P Rev A2
Southbridge Intel 82801EB (ICH5)
LPCIO SMSC

Processor (CPU-Z)
Intel Pentium 4
Code NMe Prescott
Package Socket 478 mPGA
Technology 90 nm
Well that's alot of info, but I thought it might help.

I can post a full listing of specs from a log file I generated using CPU-Z if that helps.
It's a 2.8 GHZ, 1 GB ram computer processing power wise.

I looked up the specs for the GX270 on Dell's site but it didn't say whether or not I can instal a graphics card.

Oh, and I bought this compuer refurbished from www.intechra.com, so I dont have a computer manual for it.
 

A:I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. Can it support a graphics card?

It has an 8x AGP slot, but doesn't most propably have enough good a power supply to support any decent cards, like these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102814 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102730
Neither do Dells have good cooling so the 3850 would run pretty hot in it.

The Optiplex basically takes a standard ATX PSU, but you might need to cut some metal to expose the new PSU's power switch or something like that. Safest way would be to get a Dell specific PSU, like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703016 but if you're feeling lucky, you can save a bit and get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703015
