    Well my brand new gpu is a radeon 6770 from Sapphire. My PSU is 500w the deal is that when i plug my card in, it DOESNOT display anything. When i use my old nvidia 9500gt it displays the second i press the power button HELP ME FIX THIS. Oh and without using the 6 pin power connector the gpu runs loudly but if i plug the connecter in the gpu runs silently........my cpu is intel core 2 quad

    It would show the windows welcome message for 2 seconds before turning black....i can hear the windows running cause of the error sounds it makes when i hit keys....

    Sounds like you need a new card.

    Does your computer also have integrated graphics? What motherboard do you have and whats the model of the power supply?

    The 6 pin power connector MUST be plugged into the card for it to work right.

    Since you are seeing the welcome screen and shutdown screen then you initial description of not seeing anything is wrong. You may just have some BIOS settings wrong and/or a driver issue.

    You must also uninstall the previous video card drivers, do that with the old card plugged in.

    Or as mentioned the card may just be faulty, new products can indeed be faulty.
