Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?
My pc was working fine untile i tried a new graphic card.
\015 Now no bootup even after puting the original graphic card back in ?\015
You have to do a change in the bios setup. Your first graphics card must be set to VGA or PCI. If u r using VGA card then set it to VGA otherwise set it to PCI. Insert ur card again after cleaning the slot for the display.
