    I purchased the GE Force 8500 GT video card and installed on my computer and when I boot the computer it detects the card and installs the proper drivers. Once the installation is finished I reboot the computer as suggested. However, the computer freezes on the Windows start up screen.

    I though it maybe a capability issue with Windows 7 however I tried with Windows XP on the same computer but I am having the same problem. I tried with the drivers that come with Windows and the one you can download from the Nvidia web site.

    Is it possible its compatibility issue with my motherboard? I have a Gigabye GA-8I915G-MF.

    Thanks in advance
