Re: installed video card and computer won't reboot now
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

remove 1st the video card. reboot and wait for the beep, if none remove the ram and reboot again, when there is beep, maybe the ram was defective. replace ram then put the video card back. reboot. if still not working. remove again the video card and plug the monitor to the on board video. reboot, then wait...'til post. if this doesn't solve your problem then you need to buy new motherboard. if it work replace the video card with working or buy new.
Have you tried removing the new video card? Try that first. The fact that your keyboard doesn't light most likely means that either your power supply is being pulled down by the video card or is now gone. Was your power supply rated high enough wattage for your computer with the new video card? If the video card was higher-end then it's possible that it killed the supply. It could also be the motherboard that's gone. Static discharge when putting the video card in, or a bad video card can destroy a motherboard.
Hi granttoolmad Shut down computer and disconnect power plug . Extract new graphics . Reconnect and reboot computer , you should get video back . Install the driver with the cdrom you purchased with the card . Shut down . Install new card . and boot your machine . Wait for Windows to recognize the card . Shut down . Connect your monitor to new card . Reboot . Best regards , fanaudi .
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.
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.
Well you open the side cover and then you remove the old video card and then you install the new video card mke sure it is seated in the slot really good and put the screw back in repower up your computer a screen will come up say something like windows has found new hardware cancel that out by clicking on cancel then put your cd in with the software for the new video card and follow the instructions one it and you should be set when the computer reboots up
your going to have to reboot the computer with the reboot disk ,,
once thats done turn off computer and install the video card and then also insert the drivers disk that came with the video card this should work has for me and i have done 100s of video cards Although if you bought a good video card and still have a 400w power supply your going to run into trouble make sure you have a 500w power suplpy or better to run a good video card ,,,,,
Did you try and change the power supply? Maybe the power supply is faulty since u say it keeps rebooting. Since you do not see anything on the screen (the bios is not executed, could b a problem with the power supply. Do you get any beeps?)
Easiest possible solutions first: 1) download and install the latest drivers for your video card 2) see if there is an update for the game that causes the problem 3) run memtest86 from http://www.memtest86.com/ to check if your RAM is bad 4) swap out the current video card with a known good video card
