Trying to update the video card in a PE2650 Server 2003, where can I find a BIOS that will allow a PCI video card?

If you can get this to work, I'll give you $500.00 USD -NOT KIDDING-

    You need to talk to Dell.

    Aside from that, wtf are you loading a PCI (assuming regular PCI) on a 2650 for?

    Probably because he's looking to do it on a PE2650...i.e. PowerEdge rackmount server and he's likely limited on his slots.

    PCI in servers of that era are not that strange.


    To the OP:
    Did your Original GC die? That's would have been an integrated ATI board or such correct?

    Can you enter BIOS and disable the on-board card?

    I don't think the Dell server bios will allow for changing the video card from the onboard video card. I know some of them don't anyway.
