Hello, i got a MSI Neo4 Platinum motherboard, AMD Athalon X64 3200, 3GB of RAM, and I just slapped in an XFX GeForce 8800 GT Alpha Dog to replace my old ATI X1600 [since I broke a capacitor taking it out on accident]. I'm getting a black screen at boot, no nothin anywhere. I reset the Cmos by removing the battery, and even restarted in safe mode with an old pci graphics card to use a driver cleaner to make sure nothing was in the way. No dice. Any suggestions? Running Windows 7.

My PSU is a 500W and the 6-pin-PEG is hooked up and ready. I think I'm going to have to update/flash the BIOS of my mobo. Just gotta make sure I do it right, otherwise... :sweat:
