I just bought a Zotac Geforce GTX 770 graphics card, and i cant get my operating system (windows 7) to show up on my monitor in order to install the GPU drivers. I'm fairly certain that i hooked it up to my PC correctly. It's just that, all that comes up on my monitor is a black screen, with a white, blinking underscore. I am completely stumped on how to fix this. Please help!!

You could try to put in your old graphics card and see if that works and if it does that means somethings wrong with your new GPU.

My old GPU does work. Is there any way to test if it is the new GPU that's broken? I really don't want to ship it back and get a new one if it has nothing wrong with it.

Are their any other systems you could try it on? Maybe a friend's system?

I could, but before I do, just want to be 100% sure here. What SHOULD come up if it is working. Because when i installed my old one, I had to run my computer on my integrated graphics with my APU in order to install the drivers. With this one, should i keep my monitor plugged into my newly installed GPU? Will my windows 7 pop up? Sorry if this sounds juvenile, or like i know nothing. I just want to be certain on what i should expect, if it were to work.

Yes you should have your monitor plugged into your new GPU to make sure it's working. Your operating system (Windows 7) should start up. If you manage to get to windows 7 with your monitor plugged into your graphics card everything is good to go.

So even though I don't have the drivers installed for the new GPU i'll still get a display? And do you recommend that I turn my integrated graphics off, so it's just my PCI-E getting recognized?

You can update the drivers when you plug in your graphics card. So yes you are supposed to get a display. BTW was your previous card AMD? Because if so you have to uninstall the amd drivers before putting in your new card because the 2 drivers might not like each other. Also I would keep integrated graphics on . I have integrated graphics and when I first installed my 7750 I didn't need to turn it off.

No, it's not AMD. And I just scoured my computer for any AMD video card drivers, and i deleted what i thought it might be (AMD Catalyst, if that sounds right) and uninstalled it. So i guess ill try to hook it up again.

HA! thanks for all your help. This did teach me a big about GPU's and what not. But it looks like all i had to do was update my BIOS. Now it all works perfectly fine!

MSI A75-G55, and to be honest, i don't like it much, it's very small, and it's not even a micro. I'm thinking of upgrading to bigger, Intel fitted socket. I think i'm going to get full ATX tower as well.
