Hello thar! I recently got my new graphics card GeForce GT620  ECS and installed it into my computer. Everything was okay until i installed NVIDIA drivers so i could run games. (PS it wouldn't let me play any games it kept saying i had an invalid video card so i ofc installed nvidia drivers to see if that would help.) So it told me i had to reboot my pc. So i did. And after it got past the loading screen when it says Windows my monitor screen went BLANK. It then said something about couldn't find a video signal. monitor going to sleep. I know am using this computer with no NVIDIA drivers but i cannot play any games more thank likely due to that. PLZ HELP! Thanks in advance! -Mike

:step3: Uninstall the current Nvidia driver from Control Panel --> Programs and reboot the system.

 

:step4: Download and install the latest driver from the below link.

 

      http://www.nvidia.in/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-in

 

      Once the driver setup completes, choose to restart the system manually. Now set the system resolution and refresh rate to the native values of your monitor. For example , 1366 x 768 60 Hz. Restart the system and check how it works.

Hi

 

The card or the motherboard PCI -Express interface might be faulty. Unplug the card and use on-board VGA port for testing. If that works fine, you need to plug the card to another working machine to check whether it is faulty or not.

I'm sorry i'm not to grand at computers so could you possibly explain what on-board vga testing is? Thanks!

Sorry for the double post but i do not think it is the card because i can use the card i just can't add NVIDIA drivers but I will try anyways once i do VGA port testing. 

EDIT: The card was also brand new out of the box yesterday.
