    You're saying you removed your old AMD Radeon RX 560 graphics card and replaced it with a new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card?

    Did you remove the driver software for the old graphics card and install the driver software for the new graphics card?

    How to properly install a video card;
    1 Old card still installed, go to the support site ie nvidia or amd. Download the latest driver for your card. Do not use the driver on the support disk; it is almost always out of date
    2 Old card still installed, uninstall ALL software based on the old card ie driver, any suite, any monitoring software, etc. Do not reboot when prompted; just tell it later
    3 Shutdown and pull the old card. Install the new card and make any necessary pw connections
    4 Pw ON and install the driver you downloaded in step #1. Now reboot when prompted

    Done.
