video card trouble

By masurtonya ·
I recently wanted to upgrade my video card. I bought a GeForce 210. I disabled the onboard graphics through device manager, inserted the card into the pcie slot and now I can't do anything. The "hp" screen comes up, but I cannot do anything with it. I cannot access bios or anything else. How can I reenable the onboard graphics or make the GeForce 210 function? Any suggestions?

Well, is the card comapatible with your hardware?

Did you follow the installation instructions?

Not being able to access BIOS setup would indicate to me a separate problem. So, remove the card to get your onboard video back, and try again from there. Make sure there isn't some contraindication for installing that card on your system hardware or OS version.

Hello masurtonya, What is the wattage on your power supply unit?

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to video card trouble

Your motherboard needs at least 300 watts plus to run this card, so get at least a 500 watt power supply unit for your system and you will be fine. Unless of course you have not fitted it properly into the slot, take it out and make sure it seats good and firm into the slot. Does your board make any beeps when starting up?

A bit late but have you thought about resetting the bios? Easiest is to do it on the motherboard.
