Hello guys I am a budding gamer on a budget and this weekend I decided to upgrade my nvidia geforce gt610 to an ati r7 250. I followed the install instructions to the letter but on booting my system it starts for a few seconds with a black screen, reboots then continues on running still with the same black screen. When I place my old g.p.u it runs fine without a problem. I am wondering what could be the problem I have updated the bios on my mobo and still no solutions

my system is
intel i3 2120
8 gig ram ddr3 1333
foxconn h61mxl/mxk-k motherboard
a b U Graphics card

Before installing the R7 card are you completely uninstalling the drivers and software for the GT610? When performing this uninstall operation try using driversweeper (or similar program) to completely get rid of any leftover NVidia drivers before installing the new card.

Ok guys thanks for the help I found a solution I contacted foxconn and it seemed that I had updated my bios to an old version (that was still newer than the one I originally had ) they gave ne instructions on how to update the bios to the latest version and the card worked fine.

Thanks for the help.
