Hello,Just got a new graphics card, Geforce GTX 460 Se. Ever since then my monitor Samsung SYncMaster 204B, has been taking forever to turn on. Sometimes it takes up to 4mins and then it blinks and then finally it turns on. Other then it taking 4ever to turn on, the monitor works fine. My monitor is about 4-5 years of age. I know that my power supply for my video card is barely handling it with its current wattage. Pretty sure all my drivers are up to date. SHould i get a new power supply or a new monitor? Thanks for your time
Well, if it really is a full dell system, all their PSU's are proprietary (last I checked) which means with a dell case any PSU you buy probably won't fit. So make sure to double check whatever you buy does fit first. A 350watt PSU definately needs to be upgraded for about any of todays modern video cards.
well I replaced my buddies dell I believe it was an xps410 or something with a corsair tx650 and it screwed in just fine, one thing about dell is that there cases are proprietary unless your willing to split up all the damn wires to fit a standard mobo connections for hd led, power, reset, etc... The psu upgrade should be fine,
Just thought I would update everyone on my issue with the monitor. I tested my monitor with my laptop with a VGA cable and my monitor still took forever to turn on. SO i guess its something wrong with monitor.
