Alright, straight to it...

Me and my GF are playing AoC... We wanted to upgrade her PC to play the game better... So, we got the 8800GT for graphics.

Specs :
Intel Pentium D 940.. or 920.. 3.2GHZ
2gigs DDR2-533
Abit IP-95
Orion HP585D PSU 585W
and of course the 8800GT...

Anyways, the PC won't boot... just a black screen. Everything gets power all the fans turn on and everything.. it makes a little noise... but everything seems to be fine.. I put the old graphics card in and it boots fine.. (8500GT.. why I replaced it..) I've checked everything all the connections and everything. The PSU should be good enough easily.. I don't know what's up.

It seems like your motherboard Abit IP-95 has a VIA P4M890 chipset, this seems to be a common problem between VIA chipset and the 8800 series.

I don't really know if it is incompatible, but search on google for "VIA chipset and 8800" or something. I will promise you that you will find a answer for this problem.

Maybe there is a way to flash your graphic card bios to make it work or you can just get a new motherboard, well try to search on google.
