Question about PC Desktops
Did you mess around with the settings in your BIOS? If you did, make sure the boot settings are such that your computer tries to boot from your hard drive as the first or second option. It seems you might have changed the setting so your computer tries to boot from the network instead.
If that's not the issue, is your hard drive currently being recognized when the computer is started? What Realtek products do you have? I assumed the Realtek product is your Network Interface Card (the one that you connect an ethernet cable (one that looks like a phone cable except bigger) to, also called an NIC).
Make sure you didn't disconnect any cables that were previously connected when you installed the video card. Specifically check the IDE or SATA data cables that connect your hard drive to the motherboard, and the power cable that's connected to your hard drive.
