Default Re: Base build off a dell dimension 3000 (STRICT BUDGET)

ok, I'm out of town with work and my parents are installing this video card...which isn't the best of situations but is what it is. So they are having issues with the video card install. Here is what they told me.

when she went into bios to switch to the pci slot for the video card, the only option she had available was "automatic" so she chose that, installed the fx5200 drivers and went to restart. when she restarted, she's just getting a black screen.

any ideas what she could have done wrong? I know i didn't provide much detail as to how/what she has done during install and I'll try to get more to narrow down the problems. any starter ideas of where the problem may be... are appreciated.
