I went into the device manager and my PC does indeed detect my Nvidia card, a NVIDIA GeForce GT 430. I tried to find out what was wrong with it, it was currently up to date, I tried taking it out and putting it back in, but the results were still the same. I did notice that if I left the graphic card out and booted the PC without it, it would not have that strange boot up effect as if there was a ram issue. So I decided to actually go back to my older Nvidia card a Nvidia Geforce 6150SE nForce 430. I booted it up and it booted normally without the strange "Ticking on and off" issue, but it also would would get no signal to the monitor. SO once again using the original port for the monitor I was able to detect the video card and update it. After updating it and restarting the computer, the SAME ticking on and off and non recognizance occurred!
Could this be an nvida drive update issue? Or is it just my PC not wanting to use Nvidia graphic cards??
