Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX150 PC Desktop ?

No video output on Optiplex GX150

\015 Machine powers up, hard drive cranks up and everything seems to be operating correctly, except that i can not get any video output. \015\012Any ideas?\015

Answers :

This may explain why the output does not work. Sometimes on these Dells there was an onboard video port (that was useless unless you had a video card installed) and a slot for a video card, so you would have two video ports. Now the DELLs that I have worked with in this case, you had to have a video card in the video slot or the onboard video would not work. I know it sounds weird but I bought one from the Goodwill Thrift store like that and it would not give me anything until I put a video card in the slot. Also another weird thing about these DELLs is that once you put a video card in you could only use of the video ports or the other, not both. I wanted to run a dual monitor setup but couldn't using it that way.
