    You have to go into bios to fix this.

    I can't guide you through it because I haven't done it in a loooonnnggg time, but there is a setting somewhere you have to set to 'PCI-Express' or 'PCI-Express VGA'.


    It could also be that it doesn't support the PCI type.

    "• Two PCI card slots
    • One PCI Express x16 card slot
    • One PCI Express x1 card slot"

    I tried that but no go

    i plugged the VGA cable into the onboard VGA
    and it boots but doesnt let me get into BIOS
    a pop out says a display adapter has been added please turn off computer connect VGA cable or adapter to the PEG slot retarst.
    did that but no VIDEO pops out.

    Do you even have the drivers for your new graphics card?
    If you dont, go to this link Dell Technical Support Home Page / Dell Troubleshooting Search
    and follow the easy steps

    And this video might help: [YOUTUBE]DN6nU8MzTH4[/YOUTUBE]
