Re: Cant boot up compy with new graphics card to...
If you have an older graphic card swap it out with the new or if u have onboard video use it as your video. Once you boot up uninstall the nvidia drivers and turn off pc. Now reinstall the new card and install the drivers from the CD or the new ones from the nvidia site. Dont use the windows device manager.

Download and burn recovery cd that boots into memory and not install.from here https://www.system-rescue-cd.org/Download
when booted from it try finding correct video driver for Ubuntu or un install video driver and reboot
Depending on the exact text of the message, you need to either update the drivers, or you need a newer graphics card. To update the drivers, go to the graphics card manufacturer's website and download/install the latest driver.If the graphics card itself needs to be replaced, you will need to purchase a new graphics card (check the game requirements for the type/make/model card that will work), then install it to your computer. If you already have a graphics card, it's merely a matter of replacing it with the new one and installing the drivers/software that came with it. If it's built in to the motherboard, you will need to install the graphics card, install drivers, then disable the onboard in the bios (check your computer documentation for how to access the bios, typically it will be holding the del key when you see the pc manufacturer's splash screen on boot). If you don't want to get that in depth, most computer stores will do the installation/configuration for you if you purchase the graphics card from them.
Just because you have a new video card with CD drivers does not mean the drivers are the latest. Go to Saffhire directly & download the latest driver software for you're card. http://www.sapphiretech.com/us/support/drivers.php Uninstall any older driver software before installing newer. Try not to restart the system between installs. And update windows before you install the new drivers. You do not need to install WinXP SP3. Unless you want too.
Uninstall current graphics card drivers.
Before you install your new card, you'll need to uninstall your current
graphics card's drivers to avoid any potential conflicts. Right-click
My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the
button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed
under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your
graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the
Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.
Remove old card. Turn off your PC and unplug it from the wall.
Open the case Make sure you first
ground yourself by first touching a metal part of your PC case or by
wearing an antistatic wrist strap. (Grounding yourself will prevent you
from getting shocked and from unintentionally damaging your PC's
components.) If you are replacing a graphics card, you'll need to
remove a small screw attached to the back plate prior to taking out the
Install new card. It wouldn't hurt to page through your new
card's instruction manual at this point. Then, take your new graphics
card out of its foil wrapper and slide it into your motherboard's slot. Press down firmly with even force until it is securely in place
(your system won't boot up unless the card is in all the way). Screw it
into the back plate and close up your case.
Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers.
Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you
through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card,
click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click
Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new
drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good
idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date
drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since
manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply
restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.
When you say "it isn't bootable from the cd", do you mean the cd isn't a bootable cd?, or the computer isn't configured to boot from a cd? If the latter, I suggest obtaining a bootable ME cd, but if the computer isn't configured to boot from a cd, depending on the computer motherboard, you will need to access the bios setup, either by pressing the 'DEL', 'F1', or 'F10' key during boot, then under a section called 'boot' or 'advanced-->peripherals' should be the settings on changing the boot sequence, if it's set to this sequence:-
4........NETWORK (not available on some systems)
You will need to change the sequence to:-
4.......NETWORK (Not available on some systems)
Then press the relevent key to 'save & exit', this will enable you to use an ME bootable cd to re-install ME on a clean hard drive.
to see if your graphics card is installed and recognised, go to My computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for graphics adapter, click on the '+' sign and see if it is recognised, if so uninstall it and reboot pc and it will install itself again.
If you require the driver seee this site:
if there is a yellow '!' mark on the graphics adapter line then right click on it and select update driver and then it should search your system for the driver, assuming you have installed the downloaded driver first, if it is unable to find the driver, choose to manually install and point windowws to where you downloaded the driver, but remember to unzip the driver first if it is in a zip folder.
