XPS 9100 Graphic Card Question

Just wondering if someone can confirm what I think my problem is.

I just got a XPS 9100, it was the base model, so I added 12g of ram and a second hard drive, restarted my computer and confirmed everything was working.

But when I swapped out the graphics card, the computer starts beeping and does not boot up, put the old graphics card back, everything is fine.

Could this be because I don't have enough power for the PSU? I was already thinking about upgrading it anyways, just confirming that this is most likely my problem.

 

Thanks.

Re: XPS 9100 Graphic Card Question

what video card are you installing and what is the old one that worked??  your system has a 525w power supply that should handle a decent card.

I picked up a Radeon HD 5750, but I don't know if its working or not.

If you think the power supply is good for a decent card, then my card might be indeed bad.

Thanks for the reply.

your 525w power supply should be enough to run the HD 5750

 

there is a 6pin plug that needs to be plugged into the back of your graphics card .... did you plug the 6 pin power supply cord into the graphics card?
