Hey. I just bought an 8800gt from PNY, and when I plug everything in, turn the pc on, it won't show anything. The screen doesn't receive a signal from the card. My motherboard has an integrated graphics card (6100), and that's the one it boots. I've entered the bios, though, and set it to boot the PCI-E slot first. It still won't load. Can you help me out?

Thise comes sometimes when you overcklock your card , or it's can be from a bad video memory ( VRAM ), so try to install afterburner , and remove a little frequences from core clock and memory clock and see if this help you or not , and than tell me the results :)
check to see if your directx is binding to your new card. do this by typing dxdiag into run and hit ok then do the test and see if they pass if not change refresh rate or some settings till the driver rewrites then check again should work. if it passes your games should work. if not call your tech support and ask them how to bind directx to driver.
Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change). It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports. Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card. Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.
