    Hi

    I built a computer a couple of years ago using Windows Vista. I installed Geforce 7300 GS Nvidia graphics card. The card has now developed a fault (I think). When I boot up the screen is not clear text it looks like lots of pairs of eyes looking at you. There is a message saying remove faulty hardware. The system will only boot into safe mode. I booted the system using the onboard graphics and it is ok. So I have now purchased a new card Geforce 8400 GS but when I insert this into the pci-e slot nothing happens. The motherboard doesn't do the post boot pip. When I take the card out all is ok. Is it possible I have bought a dud new card? With the Geforce 7300 GS providing some graphics I assumed the card was faulty and not the motherboard, any advice would be great.

    Thanks:confused:

    New graphics card is bad. Either that, or you didn't seat it firmly in the slot.
