Basic process:
Remove power to the computer. do not just turn it off, unplug it..
Open your computer case.
If you have a separate existing video card, remove it.
If not, examine your Video card. look for a physically matching slot on your motherboard.
To do things the right way, either use a grounding strap, or use the ESD wrap that the card came in to grasp the top of the card.
line up the card with the physically matching slot. Keeping it even with the slot, slowly press it in. If it encounters resistance, make sure no wires have gotten in the way. If it still won't go in, double check that the slot you are trying to put it in is the same size as the connector on the bottom of the card.
If it does go in, go ahead and press it in until it stops. put about 10-15lbs of pressure on it, screw it in. make sure one end is not "cocked up", first.
put the case cover back on.
hook the cable from your monitor to the correct connector on the back of the video card.
plug your system back in.
turn it on. if nothing appears on your monitor after 10 seconds, something is wrong; make sure your monitor is plugged into the card properly. you might want to open the case and verify the card is where it's supposed to be.
Try the power again.
It should be working. if its not, something is either wrong with A) The Video card B) the connection from the card to the motherboard or C) the connection from the card to the monitor.
If the monitor shows something, your card hardwar is installed properly. When your operating system finishes booting, software installation is needed.
I would need to know what Operating System you are running to provide software & Driver installation instructions. To give instructions on how to disable a built in Video card (if you did not remove a card earlier), I would need to know your Computer or motherboard Make & Model.

No signal. Installed in a Evga x58 3x sli motherboard.

Is the card seated in the slot correctly.
Did you check the bios by tapping the correct key when the computer boots and making sure the computer is set to use the PCI express slot. Sometimes the bios will not allow the PCI express slot to function without manually configuring it to do so.

Hi drago,

You can find your drivers here:
Download the drivers you need, and install them manually in the Device Manager.

In Windows 7, goto the Device Manager (click on Start, right click on My Computer, left click on Properties, click on Device Manager) Look for your video cards, click on the + to see which ones are installed.

Once you have the new drivers installed, you may have to uninstall the integrated graphics drivers to force Window to use the new card.

Hope that helps

Monitor wont work

You were not very clear with your question. If you mean you have disabled your onboard video, then installed the new video card and get nothing then the card is not compatible with your system OR you got a bad card. If you mean you simply installed the card, turn on your computer and get nothing until you move your monitor plug back to the original port (without turning off the computer) then you must disable your onboard video by going into your BIOS settings. Follow the instructions that came with your video card or your computer to do that. Usually you get in by pressing delete or F2 while the computer boots.

If the type of card is the same,and will fit into the slot,such as AGP or PCI or PCIe, then it wil work after you install the new video card drier for your operating system of windows.

Is my Motherboard compatible?

Try to find out what the AGP voltage is on the motherboard.
Some graphics cards use 1.5 volts and some use 3.
If it's a 1.5 volt AGP slot and you plug a 3 volt graphics card in, it either wont work or you could permanantly damage both card and motherboard.
