Yes i'm trying to figure this new graphic card out. i have an HP which has a PCI slot, i bought a new Nvidia GEForce FX5200Plus for my computer, because the on-board card doesn't work for a game I got for Christmas. I disable the on-board video card and install the new one. when I turn the PC back on, i have nothing on my screen. any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Try re-seating the card, and/or try installing it in another slot.

try this im not sure if this will work but give it a go!

plug the graphics card into the PCI port but dont plug the monitor into the card. Plug the monitor into the port on the motherboard then load up windows download the drivers and then plug the monitor into the graphics card. If this doesnt work disable them in the BIOS and change the graphics to PCI

hopefully this works. :tazz:
