Video Card Problem on Gx60 and Gx260 Desktops


Sep 8, 2011

I am trying to install VisionTek ATI Radeon 3450 512 DDR2 PCI video cards on a number of GX60 and Gx260 desktops so that I can have two VGA outputs for dual monitor and extended desktop support. I cross referenced with the compatibility on these systems on dell's website and they state it should work fine.

However, when I install the PCI video cards into the systems, both the onboard and the new PCI video fail to output anything. This happens on all of the systems and I have tried with different video cards so I know its not a bad card.

What I am doing wrong here? How can I make sure that both can work together?

Just to clarify, I am NOT trying to install MULTIPLE cards to each system, but rather just one card per system, so there will be a total of 2 VGA ports per system (onboard + new PCI card)
