I have a Dell XPS 9100 and I went to start up and I got 6 beeps with no display. Dell online said 6 beeps is a video card failure. I had an Asus Radeon R7 250. I got a new one (same card) and I installed it and it worked! Made it through the install completely. Shut it down that night and booted it up the next day I got 6 beeps on start up, no display. I took it to a microcenter and they said it booted fine there, must be a bad gpu. I got another video card (same kind) and 6 beeps no display… should I try and different kind of card or what else should I do? Kinda stuck without a display.

Thank you in advance!!!!

Hi
Seems odd that each one of those cards had the same issue.
If you can take off the cover and than boot it up. Lets see how long it takes before the error code occurs.

I suggest testing the power supply output see if the PSU in good working condition.
