Default Installing GeForce FX5500


I bought a geForce FX 5500, going to install it into a DELL Demension 3000.

It came with the Card and a CD. No instructions. I have googled instructions for them, can't find them. Any one know error proof way of installing card. I found lot of sites where people had problems installing. Don't want to mess it up.

Thanks again.

You just need to have a PC, pull of the back Metal Protector of the PCI Slot, throw the card on and plug in your Monitor into the New Card's VGA Port (the Blue thing) or the DVI Port (the gray thing) and you're done, all you have to do then is install their drivers (download them from nVidia's site)

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

Just make sure that the card is in nice and tight and the little lock slider is over the lock, when cards fall out of the motherboard bad things happen, sadly I've been there...
