Question about PC Desktops

PC is dead

HP Media Center PC model m7060n. Was working fine earlier today. I unplugged it and removed the side cover to install a graphics card. Graphics card was the wrong type so left the PC unplugged for about three hours while went to the store to get another card. No additional carda available so I buttoned the side cover up and plugged the PC back in. Now it won't turn on. Little green light on the rear of the PC blinks instead of solid. Any ideas as to what the problem is??

Re: PC is dead

I assume you installed the new graphics card already. Did you check if your power supply could handle the increased power? If your power supply is rated at 350W or less, I'd upgrade to at least 400W.

Also, ensure that the graphics card, if it has a power connector, is connected properly to the power supply, and that in the process of installing it, you didn't accidentally remove any of the power connections to your motherboard.

The Green LED lets you know that it is receiving power from the wall, and that the problem lies in the computer somewhere.

Installed a Graphics card EVGA 6200 AGP 8X in my PC HP Media Center PC m370n now keeps showing failure notice

Did you install the drivers for the Graphics Card before you plugged the card into the computer? If not, remove the graphics card and reboot using your old video connection, install the driver then install the card and plug your monitor into the newly installed card. If you still have an issue try booting into safe mode.

Media Center has an Intel graphics chip on the mother board. How do I omit using it so I can install a PCI video card?

Have you tried adding the card and see if it defaults to the card rather than the onboard video? Many BIOS are set that way by default.

Go into your BIOS and look at the onboard devices. It is preferable to tell your BIOS to first look for an add-in card and default back to onboard if you don't find one. But you can disable your onboard video, then save and reboot.
