Question about Computers & Internet
Some PCI-E cards require a special 6 pin power adapter, be sure that yours is connected if it is required.
I know that some PCI-e cards also require lots of power, if you are using a power supply less than 300 watts, your system may not be able to handle it.
also, check your BIOS settings. Your PC may still be trying to start off the on board video rather than the new PCI-E card.
