    About 5 days ago I Purchased a new graphics card and had the store install it to be safe. Just today my computer started up, looked fine did its weird circles spinning in a circle thing then when it fades out and goes to where I would sign in, my monitor just goes blue. As it does when nothing is plugged into it. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button for 30 secs then starting up, tried auto-repairing, but nothing is working! I just spent about 600 bucks on my already 600$ computer. Please help, I read that its a driver issue but then I finally got something to show on my pc and it said windows did not start correctly. I looked at the connection between everything to my motherboard and power supply and it looks fine. My power supply is good enough handle everything in there as well. The card I purchased was an evga geforce gtx 670 super clocked 4 gb ddr5 if that helps. I don't know why this would have occurred out of nowhere. As far as I know it wasn't dropped, hit, or moved in any way that would affect it. If you guys know any solutions please help. I also want to get into safe mode to back everything up. PLEASE HELP Extra info: Im using an HD MI to connect to my monitor. Its a desktop(I see a lot of forum posts about laptops) I don't have any windows install disks to reinstall the os.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you can help me out

    did you check your psu was capable of running the new card

    video and psu upgrades usually go hand in hand

    what are you running
    video card brand and model
    cpu
    m/board
    ram
    power supply
    brand
    model
    wattage

    check the listings in the bios for 12v line voltages and cpu temperatures and post them
