Hello all, I hope you can help me with this.

I recently bought a Ati x1950 pro for my computer. seen HERE.

I have then bought this PSU. See HERE.

I connected everything up, put in the auxiliary power connection for the graphics card ect...
I then switched on the computer to find that I can't get a display. So i went back to onboard graphics and i got a display and I am able to boot into windows as I am on it now writing this. I know that it isn't a faulty graphics card, because I have had it tested by overclockers, that's where i bought the card from. There is more than enough power from the PSU, combined 50a on the 12v rail.

I have set it to pci-e in bios and still nothing.

I just don't know what else to try, please can anyone help me?

If your running windows xp (hopefully works with vista too), go to start, control panel, system. Then when that box pops up go to the hardware tab, and click device manager at the top. You should see (in alphabetical order on the list) Display Adapters on the list that pops up. Click on the + sign so it opens up, and you should see your integrated graphics. Right click on your integrated graphics and click disable. Then try your graphics card in. Hopefully this works out for you!

Nope that didn't work. I just don't know what it could be. The graphics card has been tested and found not to be faulty. The PSU Is new and is more than enough to power it.

Thanks for the suggestion though. Can anyone else give me a suggestion on this problem?

Regards Jason

I took my graphics card up my cousins today and he tested it in his computer and it works. I am now thinking I could have a damaged pci-e bus. What do you lot think? Do you think i should contact the place where i bought the motherboard from and rma it back to them as it is new?

Regards Jason

I guess it might be something wrong with your motherboard. Even if you have integrated graphics, when you put a graphics card in, the graphics card usually becomes the default display.
