Feb 12, Posts: I fear I would have to bite the bullet and try it myself but I’m hoping someone might have gone down this road or a similar one before. Then I guess the last question is, assuming it will fit, and power on, does that slot work as a SATA controller interface as well, or does it require some kind of emulator on the SSD chip? Dell OptiPlex Drivers for Windows 10, 8. They exist but arent very common afaik. I’m skeptical but here is what the technical guide says about the slots:

I can always go to a 2.

Try doing a search for front panel extension cables. I cant remember having this much problems from a video card.

We Are Trusted By. I have reloaded Windows OS thought maybe something was going on there. One of the pairs should start the computer opyiplex.

I’d say it’s one of the edge pairs of pins. GO to advanced power settings and turn off PCIe power management, see what happens.

The cables shown are the cables that came with the case and the motherboard is a Dell optiplex Thanks for the help, I will give this a try and let you guys know how it goes.


I couldn’t do the paperclip test. If you can’t get the audio hooked up properly, you can always get a separate audio card for that.

Where and how to download and update the correct Dell desktop OptiPlex drivers for Windows 10, Windows 8. Again I appreciate the help. Physically, I think it might fit the smaller modules like this guy. Whats so weird is when I first installed this card the setup worked fine and the reboot was fine, I was just having problems with losing video connection between the card and monitor.

You can’t damage the computer. I did some digging around, and Dell uses proprietary plugs. It’s honestly starting to sound like a fault with the GPU.

Do you guys recommend buying a better motherboard to put this card in? I dont know the exact issue, so I’m throwing out ideas: I like that idea Assuming that the is better?

Otherwise I just pop in a 2. If anyone is curious, I’ll report back pvi if it worked or not.


Tue May 27, 3: If this is going to be difficult to do than all I really need to get me up and going is the drll switch cable shown below I guess the other cables can be left disconnected because I still have the back audio. I was just wondering about the compatibility of the mother board and the card it self.

Just to recap what I did. But realistically, if you have power switch you’re pretty much good to go. I have the latest video card driver installed.
