Nope, I had this issue with mine when I first put it in. Try taking it out, reseating it back in, then pluging its power into the molex connector on the side again. Same card, same issue, this worked for me. Hopefully it'll do the same for you.

(You did remember to plug the molex connector (the power cable) into the side of the card, right?)

Hold on, how do i find out just where my onboard video card. And I've never had to plug my monitor plug into my onboard video card before.

And yes my molex connector was plugged in the fan was running, and i saw it. ....Oh man this probally really changes things but i just found out that my onboard video card is located in PCI bus one, that means that it is a PCI based card right. Anyway like i said that must really change things but just what does that change about getting my new one to work?

If you never had your monitor plugged into the onboard how did you ever have video before? To plug into the onboard card just look for the monitor plugin like whats on your video card except it will be up somewhere around where your mouse/keyboard and USB ports are.

And i think onboard cards are usually shown as being on PCI Bus 1, even though there not in a PCI slot. I think thats what my old system with integrated video says too.

Is your old card AGP?

You didn't mention taking out the old card. Did you?

The monitor worked fine before yes?

Ok now it makes sense i never knew i was plugging my monitor plug into my video card before i always thought that monitor plugs and intergrated video cards dont connect or something. I thought were i was plugging it into before was just something completly different. Anyway....i think the last thing i can try is to disable my card from BIOS as well as the device manager but what is BIOS, how do i get to it, and when it is disabled and my video card still doesn't work how do i get my old video card back on.

BIOS = Basic Input / Output system

To get to the BIOS, as soon as you turn the computer on, you should see a BIOS screen flash or quick loading screen, as soon as you see that you have to hit a button such a F2, F8, or Delete (don't know what yours would be).

It should say somewhere something like "enter setup" and "boot menu" or something similar, just hit whatever button it says for setup.

I heard that when you disable things from BIOS you have to go through more shit to get it back on is that true?

Also what about drivers before i installed the card i went to the site and downloaded the latest drivers, and i just read in the manual to download the latest drivers for the motherboard as well. Oh yeah when i installed the drivers from the site i also poped in the cd and it told me that it could not find any drivers that are commpatible with my current hardware. I really frikin hope that doesn't mean my comp can support this video card.

hmm......that's weird. Maybe you installed it wrong. usually when I pop in a new card I just open it up, insert card, and close it. Then when i turn it back on it's fine. seems simple to me.....but.....I guess you like it complicated.:D

No, you just have to go back in the BIOS and turn it back on.
