PCI or PCIe

Jusy bought a card for old my old Dell Dimension 3000 (PCI). The card is told and labelled as PCI. I inserted it into my computer and it does not work. I doubt it may be a PCIe or a bad card.

Let me give all information:

Label: NVIDIA FX5500 256MB PCI S/N: HZH20110503014

CULUS: listed accessory ITE 204896

D33088

Took the fan off and chip is labeled: NVIDIA 5200

    The FX5500 predates PCI Express, it would come either in PCI or AGP. Switch back to your old graphics and check your BIOS settings, make sure it is set to look for a GPU in the PCI slots, under chipset options there should be an option for display adapter, set it to PCI card instead of AGP or integrated graphics. If the card still doesn't work you may have a bad card.
  2. I inserted it into another computer. It was recognised and used smoomthly in the safe mode. The computer will be deadlock in normal mode during the Windows loading process.
  3. Well i can be a pci-e which not support pci or agp connection.
