I am having trouble installing a Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti video card into a PowerSpec B634 desktop computer with integrated Intel HD Graphics 2500. The GTX 550 Ti plugs into a PCI-E X16 bus port which the PowerSpec supports. However, when I hook everything up and turn the computer on, the monitor does not display. The monitor acts like the computer is not even on. When I unhook the GTX 550 Ti video card then the monitor works again and the computer boots up normally.
I'm not sure if there is a problem with the video card support or maybe the integrated Intel HD 2500 graphics is conflicting with the Nvidia card.
Power Supply: 500w
Memory: 8GB DDR3 Ram
CPU: Intel i5 core, 3.1ghz
Any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated.
Problem solved! I didn't have the monitor plugged into the DVI port on the graphics card. Noob mistake. The monitor didn't come with a DVI cord so I had to go buy one. Now that I have it everything works great.
