    I recently re-formatted my pc, and installed a new graphics card also. I chucked in the XP windows PRO disk after the instillation was complete and after POST, and the graphics card pci-e etc... loads up. Where the XP pro screen pops up (and the blue bar goes across) nothing pops up or loads apart from a dull black screen. (Screen still lit up - Green).

    Not even the onboard grahpics work, same as the current card.

    Any help?

    Check your BIOS settings. There may be a setting for what type of graphics card should initialize first, AGP or PCI.

    Was the new card different from the old, and did you disable the onboard graphics?
