    Have you checked to make sure the card is seated correctly on the board? Also make sure that you did not loosen any other cables or memory while you were installing the card.

AGP driving control
If you get it wrong, the graphics card won't boot, and you'll be left with a black screen. The only way to remedy this is to temporarily use an old PCI graphics card, change the driving control setting, and then reboot

After installing new ATI HD4670 video card I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black


Hello,
I assume you have the driver for the new video card if not you can download it from ATI website.
Try booting the computer in the safe mode and remove the driver of the old card, restart the computer and install the driver for your new video card.
You can also put the old video card back and remove its driver then install the new video card and driver.
Best of luck to you.

Uninstall the video driver and reboot at least twice - don't touch the BIOS. Shut down the pc, install the new card, connect the monitor to it and start the pc. Make sure the video card is correctly detected and reboot. Download the latest driver from nVidia and save it in an easy to find location - NOT THE DESKTOP. reboot, go into device manager and uninstall the driver that has been installed automatically. Reboot one more time and launch the installer for the driver you downloaded.

Black Screen after installing new NVidia 9400GT


Put the old card back in, remove the old drivers and restart it in VGA mode.
You don't say what operating system you use, but XP & Vista you should be able to hit F8 before the windows splash screen to select VGA mode or Safe Mode.
Once you do that you should be able to put the new card in and start it in standard VGA mode then load the new drivers.

Black screen


Boot in safe mode if you can. Then select system restore to the time your system is still in good operating state before installing pinnacle.

And for additional input I think you have to upgrade your video card if you are using a built in video card.
I think this is a video card problem. It cannot handle the pinnacle 12.

Videocard not working


Try removing the new card, booting into BIOS, change your video setting the slot of your card: I believe your card is PCI-E, save changes and exit. When it starts to reboot, turn the computer off, install the new card and then try rebooting again. You may also have to boot into Safe Mode\Uninstall the original video driver or disable that video component and then try rebooting your system.

Lock shows on screen


Remove and then reinsert the video card is first step.

Does your motherboard include an onboard graphics card? If so, boot machine with video card removed and look at the system log to check for any error events. You may need to reinstall the drivers if they have become corrupt.
