I just purchased an Inspiron 3650.
i3-6100 8 GB DDR3L Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Intell HD Graphics on Motherboard
I would like to use the GeForce NVIDIA GT620 graphics card from my old dead computer.
I understand that NVIDIA recommends a 300 w poser supply but this card only pulls 49 w.
The card fits in the machine just fine. When I install the card and power the machine up I get no video input to my monitor.
Is there a setting I need to change in the BIOS for it to see the card on boot-up?
Related question, NVIDIA says it does not have a driver for this card compatible with W10. However, my old computer started out as W8 and I later upgraded to W10. This card and associated driver worked fine in W10.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I figured it out.
Went into the BIOS and turned Secure Boot OFF. Then turned Legacy Option Roms ON.
Turned computer off and installed the GT620. Fired the computer up and it recognized the video card and somehow loaded a driver that works for it.
