Go into your device manager and see which devices are listed by pressing the +. If you see anything related to ATI...disable it (enable your new card), then go to your programs and features and get rid of ATI related software (watch out though, your processor is AMD...so don't get too happy in there! On startup, go into bios (F1 or F10 repeatedly) and go to advanced and select PCI Express as your graphics default. When you restart, you should have some ancient resolution on your screen, pop in your driver disk and you should be fine.

I already tryed it all by disabling onboard graphic in bios, 6-pin power connector is plug in,but when im goin to install driver it wont let me its saying not suitable driver for your hardware (this driver cd came with the GTS 250 in the box)

I have sent the GTS 250 back and they replaced it with new one, got it 2day tryed it on but it's same as before,either bios or OS doesn't want to pick it up any GTS 250 it wont find it so i really dont know now..
There is a 2 6-pin connectors does any1 know if i have to plug both of them i have 500W PSU..I have just 1 6-pin connector so I'm thinkin that my PSU its maybe to low or I need have 2 6-pin plugged in?????
Any ideas?

You definitely have to plug two 6-pin PEG cables.

There is an adapter for 2 4-pin to 6-pin PEG cable bundled in the box, right?

Hi martin2k8.......did you ever find a solution to this? I am having a similar issue... I have installed GTS250 into the Asus M4A785D-M PRO motherboard. I have plugged in my monitor and do get a picture, but it is blinking. When i run a diagnostic tool, the GTS card is not seen anywhere (even thought the monitor is plugged into it). However the onboard ATI HD4200 graphics card is recognised. Clearly the onboard graphics needs to be turned off, but I cannot see anywhere in the bios to turn it off. I have even done a driver sweeper and removed ALL ATI and NVIDIA drivers and leftovers....then installed fresh nvidia driver... but the system still only sees the onboard ATI card.
