I ordered a Gigabyte 9400 GT from NCIX to replace my BFG 7900 GTX; I wasn't able to play games because my screen would start showing random textures in the game environments and other weird effects before the computer would lock up. I assumed it was the video card because my ram was replaced and still the problems persisted I removed all my nvidia drivers via add/remove programs and shut off the computer unplugged it, took the old card out put the new one in (following the directions from the manual to make sure i dint miss anything) started the system back up (sounded normal, new video card fan started running) yet the monitor wasn't getting a signal, I went to shut my computer off by holding the button for 5 or so seconds like I normally do when windows is frozen and it wouldn't shut off, tried the reset button and no response I had to switch the PSU off to shut it down, I put the old card back in and now it doesn't work at all either. Did I cook something? Please help.
