Hi, I would like to start out with my problem. I have a HP pavillion a747c computer with an integrated grapics media accelerator. I recently puchased a Evga geforce 6800xt pci-e card. At first things were ok. I was having a little bit of problems with it resuming from hibernation, but not that big. Now the computer wont even boot up. It boots to the windows loading screen but then turns black with a cursor that changes into an hourglass, and thats where it stops. I messed with the whole drivers thing downloading everything I could for the computer, monitor, and graphics card, but that hasn't worked. I disabled the onboard video in the device manager and in the bios, but that didnt help either. I have removed and tried just about everything. I'm a little new to all this stuff, but I am eager to learn. Please could someone help me get my video card to work. my system specs are as follows....pentium 4 htp, 512 mb ddr sdram, and 160 gb hd. This system is stock with the exception of the video card. It is not in my machine right now. please help. My computer is set up for pci express.
