    You need to post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact pw supply, etc, etc.
    You are not trying to install this card on a dell, hp, or other big box system are you?

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 Do not use the driver on the support disk; they are almost always out of date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

    Done.
