I just got a new compute with a Geforce 9800GX+ video card. I have it connected to a Panasonic Plasma TH-50PZ850U via DVI/HDMI. I can't seem to get the right video card settings. When the comp[uter boots up, the windows screen is black. What settings should I have on the video card?

just make sure the drivers are up to date. I know they released a new one for that series about a month ago. the older cards aked up from time to time. I have SLI 9800gtx's and they will do weird stuff sometimes then recover.
Hello! You must first shutdown your computer. Open your cpu and connect the video card on the agp slot of the motherboard. Make sure it is properly seated. Return back the cover of the casing. Connect the vga cable of your monitor to the vga connector of the video card. turn on the computer. The operating system will automatic read the new found hardware. Now try to download the driver of the video card this will give the video card its properties to change its resolution sizes and graphics output. The download site can be found here, just enter the code you see from the image and click download.
First, you need to be sure you have installed the correct drivers for the card that corresponds to your OS.
Second, you need to go into the control panel (assuming you are running Windows of course) and tell the computer you now have a new graphics card installed and to use it instead of the default one detected when the OS was installed.
Reattach the monitor to the GeForce card and reboot. All should be OK.
The video card is in the AGP slot on the motherboard.
There will be a plastic clip at the back of the slot that needs to be pressed to release the back of the graphics card.
When you insert the new graphics card this clip should automatically lock in the new card.
When you install a new video card you must disable the onboard video card by going into the bios setup. Below I have listed the requirements of Second life game. e 531 does come with PCI-E slots so make sure you buy a VIDEO card with PCI-E Walmart sells some pretty decent priced Graphics cards. pretty much any pci-e card you buy new in walmart these days will be fine for this game.
