i have a dell studio 540s running win7. called dell and ordered a video card and they suggested and sent the ati radeon vtx1300dmspci video card. instruction stated simply to disable onboard video, power down, install new card. after restart when os says "new hardware found" insert cd and install drivers.

i did everything but the cd part. computer will not recognize the video card. under device manage the pci to pci bridge says it will not start (code 10)

if anyone can help or need more info please please do so.

Thanks.

Are you using the blue VGA port or the White DVI port?
A lot of the older cards only output vga(the system used to display the splash screen that says Dell and the bios pages) signal on the Blue VGA port.

The 1300 is a pretty old card for a win7 system.

Ah 1/2 height card I missed the s for slim line after the 540 :)

That will output correctly through the single port.

As long as the card is fully inserted in the slot and you had the monitor hooked to it after setting the bios to PCIe first and rebooting, I think you may have received a bad card.

If there is nothing listed under Integrated Peripherals in the advanced menu then the bios will automatically switch to a add in card when installed, providing of course the card is good. Personally I would recheck the card is actually what you want, the ATI 1300 series card is a DX9 card from about 2006 and uses Legacy drivers on Win 7.

Okay. That sounds like the best route to take. Thank you very much for your time and advice.
