    I have removed the old drives and reinstalled the new ones, when I do that it needs to restart to finish the process.

    I have turned off my Norton protection, uninstalled, reseated....

    I had it working for a while yesterday, but when I woke up this morning my computer wouldn't wake from hibernation and the card wasn't working.

    What can I try.

Have you removed the old drivers and reinstalled the new ones... i.e right click GeForce 6100, uninstall, then reload the drivers you got with the GF 8500

    Is your card PCIe or AGP... If you turn your computer off and restart it does the card post, can you get to the bios?

Black Screen after installing new NVidia 9400GT


Put the old card back in, remove the old drivers and restart it in VGA mode.
You don't say what operating system you use, but XP & Vista you should be able to hit F8 before the windows splash screen to select VGA mode or Safe Mode.
Once you do that you should be able to put the new card in and start it in standard VGA mode then load the new drivers.
