Is this new video card the only video source on the PC (i.e. there is no other VGA connections on the PC)?
Without knowing the make and model of the PC, I will list the most common issue when replacing the video card in a PC.
1. Connect the monitor to each available VGA connection and boot the computer - to see if any VGA output is working
2. When you find a working VGA output, go into BIOS and change the VIDEO settings to either allow BOTH the onboard and add in video OR allow the add in video only. Save the changes and turn the computer off.
3. Move the video cable to the add in video card, turn the computer on and see if the BIOS is using the new Video card
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart you will have to have master with slave set up you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive IDE-0 means Pri master IDE-1 means Pri slave IDE-2 means Sec master IDE-3 means Sec slave single or master ::::: master with slave ::':: slave :::': black line between dots is plastic jumper note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive betweenthe EIDE and electrical lead/s
some bios settings disables the add on video cards. to enable them go to bios setting by pressing DEL or F12 while power on your system. (u will see that a message appears "press ----- Key to enter bios settings). after entering bios setting u will see onboard VGA enable/disable. u have to disable onboard VGA in order to get the display thruogh VGA card.
This is a BIOS problem, you have to boot to BIOS config menu, do it by pressing f1 or f2 or f10 on boot splash screen, browse the menus and find an option like 'init display first' or something like that, set it to Pcie or AGP, depending on your motherboard, reboot and voila!, have a nice day
This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system. Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive. You can solve this errors with following 2 methods. (1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode. Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error. (2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk. Boot your computer with that disk For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios. Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom. Then save settings and exit bios. Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom. Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.." Then press any key. Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r" Then type "y" Then it fix error on hard drive. Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.

have you checked your bios settings? check there if you can disable your internall VGA card and only use your NVIDIA GeForce.
When you start your computer start BIOS to press DEL or F2 or F10 or F12, depends on your computer model and manufacture.
Please go into the BIOS of the system and Set the BIOS as default
Restart your computer.
When the computer first starts, it
performs the power-on self test (POST). This test checks that all
connected devices are functioning. As part of the POST, the memory is
checked. During the memory test, a message will appear that tells you
how to access the BIOS. For example, you may see the following message
or a similar message that explains how to start the BIOS setup:
PRESS DEL TO ENTER SETUPIn
this example, you must press the DEL key immediately after the memory
test is finished to start the setup process. You may have to press the
key several times to make sure that you access the BIOS setup.
Tip There are other keys that may provide access to the BIOS. They include the following:
If you are not sure how to access the BIOS setup, see the user manual for your computer's motherboard.
for the Set BIOS as Default settings. You can usually use the arrow keys to move through the menus
