I bought my pc a few months ago and I used my graphics card in it, and all worked fine. Then after a while it did not turn on again. It works with the on-board graphics but not my graphics card itself.


The PC just goes to a black screen with the graphics card making a slight noise.


I have attached a file of a disk scan which said there were errors, but I do not know what they mean.


The PC itself is HP Pavilion p6-2371ea Desktop http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=uk&lc=en&docname=c03635751



Any help on fixing the problem would be great, thank you :)

It looks like the recommended PSU size is a minimum of 450W for that graphics card.


The PSU in your computer is only 300W.
