While on holiday in amerca I experienced Black Friday (you americans are a little crazy) and got a really good deal on AMD 64 3700 with stuff for $400. I also bought an ATIRadeon 1950 pro and also a new power unit. I am a complete novice but was proud of myself being able to replace the power thingy. Now the problem is installing the graphics card. Reading up on this its meant to be easy but i think my problem is that i have an integred nvdia graphics thingy on the motherboard (Asus A8N-LA). I think I am meant to be able to turn this off and uninstall stuff But I dont know how to do this. Ive pluged in the card but I dont get a picture. Thankfully when i take it out again the it all works. I have tryed other stuff which messed things up for a bit. But then i dicovered the system recover butten which fixed that. If i just knew what i was doing i would be able to play my new game call of duty 2. I would be very grateful if anyone could help me.
1) Turn off your PC
2) Plug in the new card (and any additional power connectors if applicable)
3) Turn on your computer
4) Enter BIOS
5) Turn off the onboard video (should be in the onboard devices or similar area)
6) Save changes and try to boot into windows.
If you can't even get to the BIOS screen, then you may not have the card physically plugged in correctly or your PSU may not have enough power.
