I have a Dell Dimension 3000 PC and have a
GeForce FX 5500, 256MB, PCI graphics card installed. All works fine but recently the graphics card has become noisy.(I believe the fan bearings have worn down). So I purchased a replacement graphics card. I got the same spec card i.e. GeForce FX 5500, 256MB, PCI
(the only difference is in manufacturer). However, once I installed the new card and swtich on PC there is no signal to the monitor. I can't even get to BIOS settings. Does anyone know what might be the issue here ? (Apart from the new card being faulty). Could the same spec card, from a different manufacturer have different requirements (e.g. power/Wattage) ???
