Hello, I installed a new graphics card on my motherboard (HD RADEON 5570 1gb) and it is working but when I start my computer it boots and the following message pops up: "The last attempt to resume the system from its previous location failed. Attempt to resume again? (Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)" And then I have to choices. Either "Continue with system resume." or "Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu."

I have only chosen the first option since I don't want anything on my computer deleted if I don't know what the consequences will be. After I choose to continue with system resume I get the following message: "Your system's firmware did not preserve the system memory map across the hibernate transition. If you proceed with resume, your system could behave in an unexpected manner after resume completes.It is recommended that you save all your data and reboot the system after resume finishes. Kindly check for a firmware update with your system vendor as it may fix this problem. (Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.) and I get the same two options I got when I started my computer. Which are to "Continue with system resume" or "Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu".
After I removed the gpu, I resumed windows and everything worked like before.

I've checked if the GPU is compatible with my motherboard and if the PSU(405W) has enough power.Using Windows 7 Ultimate.(Specs attached as thumbnail)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
