My motherboard has no on-board graphics, i picked up the tower with windows 7 already pre-installed so i slotted in my gpu card and away it went. But everytime i try to upgrade the windows it installs the new windows and then on first launch i loose my monitor, i guessing as i not installed my gpu card drivers but i have no on-board gpu to use either.

My motherboard is a asus m2n32-sli deluxe which the site comfirms does not support any onboard gpu so is the solution, i guessing there is but for the life of me i cant think of a way round it.

What is the graphics card you are using? DVI or VGA ports? And your card worked before you installed windows? Was it a clean install or an upgrade?

You say you upgraded which I hope finished loading, if so try tapping F8 repeatedly as it boots.  That hopefully will get you into safe mode and possibly minimum graphics which would help with trouble shooting the issue.

I am using Nvidia GeForce GT 610 Asus Silent 2GB Edition which has DVI, VGA and an HDMI connection on. Card was working when i got machine as it had Windows 7 already installed so i slotted in my card and i works fine. When i tried to upgrade it i did it from the desktop so it wasn't a clean install as i was concerned about this issue.

Yes it had finish and was restarting after finishing installing, cant say i tried putting it into safe mode to honest so may be worth a try.

I agree with old phil. Try booting up in safe mode and reinstalling the graphics driver, nvidia installer should have an option to do a clean install and uninstall all the drivers for you.

I suspect you cannot install drivers in Safe Mode

What happens if you connect to the VGA connector and boot up in normal mode and then use the graphics card disc to acquire the latest driver

Also can you burn the applicable driver for whatever you are upgrading to from that link you provided to disc?

What about the upgrade advisor for whatever you are upgrading to?

What does it report about your graphics driver?

I suspect you cannot install drivers in Safe Mode

Maybe not via installer package... however if one could extract the package and point the device (via device manager) to an inf, oem or the like file it will install through safe mode.
