Hello,
did you make sure to set up the BIOS in order to use the PCI-Express card as the primary display adapter? No, your CPU should be fine. Could you tell us more about your PSU (how many watts)?

also most of my data is getting courrpted dont know why ..?
Also, what do you mean by that?

hello,

yes i set the bios options right...and i forgot to tell....psu is 280 watts but its a good one from compaq..originial one...so i think that psu is not the matter as psu is capable of some good amperes...

also data corruption ..i mean whenever i try to install a big game or download a big file from my college intranet .. it gets corrupted ...mainly crc error is coming.
thankyou for reply...

Your power supply is almost certainly too small. You should put in a 500 or lerger for that card and any powered add-ons you have.
