Blue screen with new graphics card - Nvidia 640.

Recently received a new Nvidia 640 to replace my old Nvidia 9400, however whenever I try to boot the computer with the new card inside it, a blue screen occurs when "starting windows" appears. This happens during safe mode as well.

Tried uninstalling previous drivers, think I did it correctly, Device Manager ---> Display Adapters/Nvidia 9400 ---> Properties/Drivers/Uninstall. But still has the blue screen.

Any idea what might be the issue? Any help would be most appreciated :)

Edit: Am using Windows 7

Edit 2: Message on blue screen is...

*** STOP: 0x0000000A (0xFFD08FFF, 0x000000FF, 0x00000000 0x82E0DFC2)

    Try running your PC without the card. on the integrated graphics. if it works, then download latest drivers from the nvidia , and then put your card back. if the problem persists, try checking your bios for plug and play options. they should be on, i think it will work when u update the drivers. but this blue screen thing is due to some problem in the parts other than graphis card.

    Tried running without any card at all, Nvidia drivers wouldn't install without a compatible card being found :(.

    Not too sure how to do that on the bios (or what a bios really is).

    Rest of the computer is fairly old, so I guess it could be older parts not powerful enough or something causing the blue screen then?
  3. Then you should update yor graphics card bios or get it checked. and BIOS is a set of deafult rules that recognize the start of an operating system
    .
  4. this could be due to ram as i have just purchased the asus gt640 2gb and it wouldnt accept my ram so try taking your ram out and try a different make or type as i did hope this helps

    Yeah , Try that, Sometimes the ram is faulty. but there are less chances . So if it doent work , try Reinstalling windows ! i think it may b a software problem ! infact m pretty sure, but only if the ram is fine.
    If you have any other questions you are welcome. If ur question is solved, dont forget to select the best answerr :D
  6. try the ram first as i wiped my system and now i have to start from scratch to find it was the ram
