If your bios is still pointing at the old motherboard chipset it will never light up from the new graphics card until you change that setting in the bios.

If you dont know what a bios is, or how to get to it....get someone else to do this for you. Simple mistakes made in the bios setup can render your system useless...

IF you do know how to get into the bios, look for the video card system location option, and change it to point to the new graphics card. Once you do this make sure to save the new bios setup. Reboot and the new graphics card will hum right along....

Nice machine though, good specs for future growth if you need it....


Hope this helps

This is the Dani web forums and it is totally depend on the hardware and the software applications and the working is so more important.

Resume Writing Service

THE BIOS IS SOFTWARE STORED ON AN ON BOARD CHIP... How is that not software???
