Got a problem when I installed my new graphic card.

Not sure that this thread is in the right place.

Just checking if there might be someone that knows where the problem is.

Got my new graphic card today, a "Sapphire Radeon X1600PRO 512MB DDR2, AGP8X, Tv-Out, DVI-I, Lite-Retail".

I put it in the computer and installed the drivers with the cd that follows. Everything worked as it should but when I was trying a game I noticed the sound wasn´t working anymore. So I took out the soundcard to check what drivers I needed to download for it but when I turned on the computer again the screen didn´t start.

I got a message on the motherboard "FF": "The flash has been updated successfully. Make flash write disabled. Disable ATAPI hardware. Restore CPUID value back into register. Give control to F000 ROM at F000:FFF0h".

Don´t know if it should say that or if it tries to say something is wrong :p  but as I said gthe screen wont work anyway =/.

I thought that the computer might lack power so I put the old graphic card in instead but I got the same problem, the screen wont work. So now I don´t know what to do to make it work =/
