PC Won't start with graphics card installed?

So, my Geforce 9500gt was working fine but I wanted to install it in my brothers PC and it didn't work, now when I took the graphics card out from that PC and put it back in to mine my pc won't even start, it just keeps restarting in the very second it starts, also when I take out the graphics card again my PC won't even boot without it, i must reset the bios settings to default before I can even turn on my PC without my graphics card..What's up with it? any ideas?

  1. Do the computers have no less than 300W PSU?
  2. does your pc have onboard graphics? if it does, will it boot using the vga port?

    if not, then it's either:
    1. not making contact properly - clean the GPU contacts on the card and in the pcie slot
    2. something became damaged on the GPU when it was taken out

    if both PCs have adequate power and the card is not working in both of them, then it sounds like the card has died
  3. first reset the bios by removing the motherboard battery and fixing it again. Then connect the vga adapter with the motherboard vga port without the graphics card. Your pc should start then. Now insert the gpu and connect the ports and try it, if it does not works then maybe ur card is dead.

    My PC does have an onboard GPU but if I install my 9500gt, my PC won't even start with my onboard GPU. It just keeps restarting all the time every 3seconds.

    does the pc boot with the 9500gt removed and just using onboard gpu?

    If it does, more than likely damaged/faulty 9500gt
  7. i think ur bros pc may have damaged ur gpu and hence the problem, i would suggest to try anyother gpu just to be sure.

    Yeah It does, I am using it right now from default gpu, well I guess i'm throwing it away in that case.
