My PC will not start the boot up process. I fitted a new graphics card yesterday and it was working fine.

Any ideas?

Make sure your new graphics card is pushed all the way in!

disconnect, take out card and push back in reconnect lead try wiggling lead a little check card again and reboot.

Try inserting your old graphics card - will the PC now boot up ?

You might have disturbed a connection. Have a good look around, try the memory chips, drive cables, ALL the PCI cards and the power lead from the PSU.

Taking the card out and then back in did the trick.
Many thanks for the tips.
