Dell PowerEdge 1950 and PCI Express graphics card

  1. Friends,

    I have recently bought a used Dell Power Edge 1950 with two Dual Core 2.66 GHz Xeon processors and 32G of RAM, which only came with on-board vga graphics card. Searched on dell site and found that NVS 290 x1 (nVidia Quadro 256MB DDR2) can be used with this server. Bought one, installed it and installed the drivers, by the way, I am using Windows 2008 server Enterprise edition 64 bit.

    I can see the graphics card in device manager and no issues no conflicts, but there is no output from it. I can not see this card in the display settings dialog box also.

    As this is a server, Dell does not allow us to disable the on-board vga card and there is no option to chose pci slot as the primary video as well.

    please help me out ...

    Thanks in advance.

    Chandu

    That is a PCI-e x1 card, this thread is about PCI only. Should ask that in the graphics card section.
