PCI Video Card for ML350

I need to add a PCI video card - HP NVS 280 64
MB PCI on Proliant Server ML350 G3. Can anyone confirm it will run on the server please?

Cheers

Bobby:
You should be able to install most any PCI video card in the server so long as:
1. It physically fits in the chassis. (not a problem ususlly)
2. Has a video driver that is compatable with your O/S.
3. That you set SW1 S1 to ON
4. That the RBSU (or SCU) identifies the PCI card.

This particular card has dual monitor support. I am not sure if every O/S has support for that... you did not mention, so you should check.
Enjoy!

The OS I intend to run is Windows 2003 Server, which I think it usually uses Win XP or W2k driver.

What is SW1 on the motherboard for? Is it to disable the integrated video card?

Re: PCI Video Card for ML350

Yes... normally you need to set the SW1 switch #1 to disable the onboard video. As I read the documentation, you may not need to... try installing it first without setting the switch... let me know if it will boot to video without setting the switch. Generation 3 and later changed some things.
Enjoy!
