I installed a new vid card, XFX Fatal1ty 8500GT 512mb PCI-e, to meet specs i had to replace the power supply as well. the power supply works fine but when i install the new card the system will not turn on. Do i need to disable the onboard vid card, if so how do i accomplish that? Any help will be greatly apperciated.

    Did you get this working? What power supply did you use to fit the case? I need a new power supply for my case and I don't want to pay the insane prices for the proprietary Sony PSU.

U need to insure that the new Vid card is compatible to Ur pc. Does the pc power up without the new Vid card? If so it sounds like the card may be defective and shorts out the pc power supply.

I bought an Ultra LSP 650w power supply (upgrade) for my HP a1150y and it won't even boot up (fans come on & thats it). If I put the old 300w (oem) PSU in the PC, it works but it won't meet the power...


if thats wat the specs say then thats most probably the max youve just bought one thats to powerfull, and y did you need so much power the most powerfull graphics card in the world needs a 750watt power surpply, your computer is probably not designed to have major upgrades, and by looking at the specs i can see that your computer well putting it simply is **** for upgrading the specs are **** (no offense intended) i suggest upgrading to a whole new computer if you want that sought of power and graphics

According to the specs of the MSI 9400gt 512mb HDMI graphics cards, its system requirements are:
1. PCI Express or PCI Express 2.0 - compliant motherboard with one x16 graphics slot.
2. Power supply of 300 (and up) watt is highly recommended for system stability.

Make sure that your power supply meets the or exceeds the system requirements for this graphics card.

Blank screen after grapics card installtion


NO NO NO!
The 7900 is vastly superior to the 8500gt!
the 8500gt is a low end budget card not suitable for demanding games- return it get rid of it, that is a massive step down form the 7900. Its likegoing from a 7900 to a 7600 or worse!

COMPUTER GOES SHUTDOWN WHEN PLAYING HIGH-END GAMES


If your mobo wasn't compatible with your video card, you wouldn't get a screen at all.
Yes upgrade your directx to 10
and yes upgrade your power supply to a 650Watt or greater.
The problem is most likely that you have a low wattage PSU and
when your vcard request more power to run higher graphic games than the
Windows Interface, your computer shuts down because it doesn't have enough power to give.

Installing NVidia 8500GT XFX 256MB graphics to A8N-VM Motherboard


The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.
