I have an Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT (1GB DDR2)
When i hook my monitor up to it the screen is just black :(  ...I tried disabling my integrated graphics through the device manager..(nvidia 6100)....I am running windows vista...the card does not need extra power(i dnt think) and im sure i have a pci-e slot...the card runs..i know because the fan spins..but my pc wont detect my graphics card...(i have a compaq presario SR5223WM)..Any help would be appreciated... :D 
THANKS :bounce:

You just installed the card? Have you tried plugging in other displays? And yes, I also have a 9500GT myself, and it doesn't require extra power.
