I have a dc7100 SFF windows XP that the video card does not work. I have bought a new card and installed it and it still does not work. I took the hard drive out and put it in a different computer with the card and it works great. Is there something else I can try.

I need more info about the video card. Is it PCI or AGP or PCIe? You may have to check the BIOS settings, set it to AGP instead of PCI or vice versa.

Well, the nVidia website says that's an PCIe card. Go into your BIOS (F10 at startup) and change your default video adapter to the PCIe adapter.

The only problem with that is that I cannot see anything on the screen to go into the bios.

I have not tried a different power supply. Could that be the problem even though its running?

have you tried resetting the bios??? Because it is probably set to AGP instead of PCI in the bios and you need to reset that option.
