  1. Did you connect the power connectors from the PSU to the GPU ?
    Did you connect the wires properly from the GPU to the Monitor ?
    Is the monitor using the right input ?
  2. okay...now i kind of rebooted my cpu....i got it to work...i had downloaded drivers from nvidia.com....because msi.com was taking too much time...but when i install the drivers it says windows imaging component not found...which is needed by .NET...it says to go to microsoft.com.....please help what should i do...where do i find drivers...

  4. Did you select the correct OS for the drivers ? Drivers from the Nvidia website should be fine
  5. yes i selected correct os...but the only problem is that it might not be for the particular gpu..that is msi...its only for geforce 8400gs...not msi...is their someway to download it from msi site..???i mean its downloading...but too slow...so it stopss in between..
  6. It's the same. Nvidia made the chipset while MSI makes the cooling system and sells it. Every 8400 GS you buy will use the same drivers from the Nvidia website.
  7. so where do i find windows imaging component for .NET???
