Hello all. I bough a Nvidia GF520 GT card and instaled it into my pc. When it asked me to restart my PC, i did it. PC started to load the windows configuration (the green line filling) and after that I get a black screen for few seconds and my pc crashes and restarts itself automaticaly.
Maybe the graphic card doesn't support my pc?

PC spec:
300w power supply
3gb DDR2 memory
motherboard Conroe Presler FSB1066 - http://www.asrock.com/mb/VIA/775Dual-VSTA/

and the card I tried to instal: http://www.zotac.com/index.php?page=shop.product_detail...


Does it even support my PC? I am totaly new to this.

whew, your motherboard supports AGP, and PCI-E 4x

try removing the cards, and uninstalling any drivers from previous graphics cards

hmm, not really good lol, AGP is an outdated interface, and PCI-E 1.0 4X is pretty bad as well, but it will suffice for what you have

what is your power supply, and could you take a picture of the side of it (if there is a sticker)
