Having uninstalled my previous graphics card software, I installed my new and turned the computer on. Nothing happened. I had also previously disabled the onboard graphics, so that won't produce any results eeither. So here I am, with a 1 year old computer that won't display anything. I am currently typing this on my mates computer and I need to to get mine up and running again because I have some presentations that my boss needs. Please Help!!!!

You may well need to go into the BIOS/Setup as the pc first boots to disable the onboard graphics. (to enter the bios it will tell you the key to press as you turn the pc on,normally Delete)

Or are you getting no display at all. Also is the pc giving any beeps.

You may also want to make sure the new card is firmly in place.

AndySD, Yes there is no sound at all and it is making beeps, what should I do?

if you are getting beeps make sure all cards and ram are seated properly then try again

Graham, it's either 1 long and 2 short or 1 long and 3 short

Ok take the card out and then replace it. See if that works.

Take the new card out. At startup, Windows should enable the onboard graphics.

AndySD, do you mean take out the crd and put the same one in or take this one back and get another one?

Put the same one back in. It may just be the contacts didnt meet properly the first time.
