Hello! Not sure if this is the correct forum but after looking around i figured it is.
I have a:
*Dell Inspiron 530S
*Windows 7 Ultimate
*Intel Dual Core E2200 @2.20 GHz
*Radeon R7 260X
*4 GB RAM card
This is all I can get off the top of my head since I can't get back in to see the specs, sorry!
What had happened was:
I had gotten a new laptop and decided to give my younger brother (19) that old desktop.
I have to add that I had just spent 4 hours cleaning it before unplugging everything and movie it into his room, which is next to mine, it moved possibly 13~ Feet.
I told him to plug in the power chords and connect the VGA cable, and LAN Wire; the keyboard and mouse is wireless, what could go wrong?
At first he plugged the VGA cable into the on board graphic card, started it up and hit the prompt screen that tells you to re-plug it in the graphics card instead.
No biggie, I told him the correct place to connect it.
Not 10 seconds in and he say's "The graphic card fell out"
The card is wider than the desktop case, but properly inserted it barely moves as it should.
When I connected everything properly myself I am now stuck on this screen unable to press anything with my keyboard(s):
When I take the card out and plug it in the default I am met with this:
When I try a different graphic card I am met with picture #1 stuck on dell logo screen still.
I assumed that one of the graphic drivers was damaged somehow in the 2-3 minutes that he had possession of my desktop.
I have had this desktop for probably a year, just used it to store stuff and watch my shows and play really low end games like Hearthstone, Mabinogi, ETC.
I admit there were times when I was messing with swapping out graphic cards and such that it was stuck on that screen, but it was resolved after waiting a couple of minutes before turning it on. It is now morning and it is still stuck on that screen.
I hope that I was able to provide what limited information I have.
Thank you in advance for your swift and helpful replies! <3
