I am using AMD Radeon 7700hd series 1gb ddr5 video card. A few weeks ago I bought AMD Radeon RX 550 gaming 2gb ddr5 graphics card. This card uses DVI D cable, different then the former, my monitor also has a dvi-d port. When I changed the video card, and started the computer, screen was black like nothing had happened, and I saw that the graphic cards' fan was spinning. I am runnng on windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. They told me in the store that my motherboard can support this graphics card. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for help in advance :)

You switched monitor input to DVI-D?

Depends on your monitor. It's probably named input.

I googled, it seems that it is the rectangle with the arrow. When I press it it just says analog. Doesn't give me any options. Of course I am on the old video card now, maybe I should press that button when I put in the new one

DVI-D should be digital so that's probably problem.

I have DVI pc mode and DVI AV mode, it is set to PC mode right now, maybe that is what I need to change?

Perhaps yes. Hard to say as different monitors use different terms.

You were right, just shut down computer, unlpugged PC, pressed on little rectangle with arrow button to change from analog to digital, replaced radeon graphics card with new radeon graphics card, connected with dvi-d at both ends. Voila, it works

Good, often simply ways are most effective.
