Specs: Win 7, Athlon 64 XS Black
I Dell Dimension C521 that serves as an HTPC. It has had an ATI HD5450 Low-Pro card processing Video. The card went out. So now, until I can replace it, I need to use the on-board video.. But when I boot up with VGA connected, No Signal. I cannot get it to recognize. How can I get the PC to switch to the On-Board video chip?

There is a CMOS reset jumper on your motherboard...

Page 63/64.

Instructions begin on page 104. Follow instructions on page105. You shouldn't need to even touch the battery.

It wont even let me see the BIOS because of no video, so you recommend just pulling the CMOS battery and reseating it?

Resetting CMOS Worked. Grrr. Now I have to suffer through Crappy Resolution until I can get a new VID Card. Can't find any up to date drivers for the VGA Adapter on the board, and the Driver is dated 5/14/2009!! lol

You have a Service Tag Number on a label on your machine. Go to Dell Support and use that number to download the drivers you need.

OEM doesn't update their drivers for old systems, better to download it from nVidia.
This is the recent one Win 7 32 bit
