Windows 7: Dell Gx260 will not boot when PCI GeForce 6200 card is installed

Dell Gx260 will not boot when PCI GeForce 6200 card is installed

it has a 250w PSU

I've been trying to upgrade an old coimputer to run Windows 7, so far it works really great, but the intel graphics are really shitty, so I bought an EVGA GeForce 6200 256MB PCI card to install. problem is, whenever the card is installed the computer won't boot, and is stuck on this screen:

I pulled out the CMOS battery to try to reset it, but no dice.

Dell bios's are very picky. You may need to change some Bios settings before you install the new GPU.

I know that card doesn't require a connection to the power supply, but which model of GX260 is it? It came in 3 different form factors with all 3 having a different power supply in them,


small form-factor computer: 160 W
small desktop computer: 180 W
small mini-tower computer: 250 W
If it is either of the first two it is entirely possible that the power supply isn't up to running the computer with the card in it.

it's the small mini-tower computer.

I really can't figure this out; and it's downright annoying.
