I was recommended a XFX PVT44AWANG GeForce 6200 256MB GDDR2 video card by my friend Derek, who is using the same computer as me, A Dell OptiPlex GX270 with BIOS revision AO7. My onboard video card works fine with Windows Vista and XP as far as resolution and sharpness goes, I can get the full 1366x768 out of it and have a nearly crystal clear display. But when I use an AGP video card (one that fits into my PCI slot on my motherboard), I get a slightly blurry resolution. All of the text and images are kind of hard to see from a distance away, and this is a problem because my computer monitor sets about 3 ft from my face, making it unusable by my daily means.
Noteworthy is that I have tried three different operating systems - Windows Vista, Windows XP and 7 - and two different video cards - my current and a Radeon 9200 - to no avail. Same exact result on both. I'm using a Dell IN1910N 18.5" inch Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor, if that would have any bearing at all on it.
Please help; I only have 5 days left on my warranty for the video card and need to return it if my motherboard isn't compatible or some such similar scenario.
Thanks for reading.
