Windows 7: cannot detect HDMI cable

13 May 2014   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2

i think your trying to fit it into a pci slot not a PCIe slot which will explain the issue.

the second slot down is the one you want to put it in. on your dell it will be upside down, but still the same port.

heres an example in a dell xps 420

pieces of antiquity

Dear Badger,
Well- thanks for making me aware of the difference between PCI slots and PCI-e slots. After another trip to the store I know that my computers are pieces of antiquity,almost extinct and they certainly don't carry cards older than 5 years.E-bay to the rescue!
