As it is a gaming PC, number of provisions are made to install graphics cards. These cards boost the performance of the video and graphics media. Before installing video card and video drivers, make sure that the device is fully compatible with Dell XPS 730x. After installing the video card, video drivers need to be installed either from CD or from the Internet.
The following might be considered while installing video drivers for Dell XPS 730x:
- Check for minimum system requirements
- Uninstall the current video card driver
- Install the new video card
- Check for new video drivers
- Check settings
Check for minimum system requirements
Choose a video card that matches the specifications of that slot. Make sure that the minimum system requirements are met. As for the monitor, make sure the card you purchase has video outputs that match at least one of the monitor’s video inputs. Also check the monitor’s documentation to find out what its maximum resolution is and only buy a card that can output video at or above that resolution.
Uninstall the current video card driver
After installing the hardware, install new drivers. Drivers are software that let hardware and Windows® communicate with one another. Before installing the new card and drivers, however, you should get rid of any video drivers already installed on the computer. In Windows Vista®, click ‘Start’, go to ‘Control Panel’, click ‘Uninstall a Program’, and click the video driver entry in the Uninstall. Click Uninstall and follow the prompts to complete un-installation.
The new video card needs to be installed inside the computer. Since video card is a delicate device, installation by a Dell expert is recommended. After the video card is installed inside the computer, you could start to install necessary drivers. The drivers may be supplied in the form of a CD with the purchase. If there is no CD then download drivers from the respective websites.
Drivers are specific to both the computer’s operating system and the video card, so the appropriate one has to be installed. You can get its exact model number from the packaging. Armed with that information, visit the web site for the video card and download the latest drivers. After the video drivers are installed, reboot the computer.
When Windows® is running, right-click an empty area of the Desktop and click Personalize. Click Display Settings and adjust the Resolution slider. If you use an older CRT (cathode-ray tube) display, the ideal value is a matter of personal preference, but LCD users should select a value that matches the native resolution of the display. It will be displayed in the manual. Make sure Color Quality is set to Highest 32-bit and click ‘Apply’.
