Today I got a Nvidia Gtx 560 ti, and i installed it and while i was trying to start it up, the computer gets stuck on the windows loading screen. I heard that i have to go into the bios to fix it but i have not seen any of the options to use on my bios to make it work. I also went to device manager and disabled my current graphic chip that is on with my cpu. My computer is an Asus essentio model cg5275 and nothing seems to be working. Does any one seem to have a fix?

There should be a BIOS setting...that allows you to disable the onboard video. This will prevent the onboard from even appearing in Device Manager and indicating a need for drivers.

That may be needed to actuate an installed card.

Also...rather than disable the video via Device Manager...it's probably best to uninstall the device from Device Manager, thereby removing the drivers.

I deleted the intel HD graphics, but when i log back into windows it automatically reinstalls it.After messing with it for three days i think i have a defective card so thanks for the help though.

What card were you using before? Did you also upgrade your power supply? What make/model power supply are you currently using?
