Default Installation Graphics Card

Hi there

The other day i just bought a GTX 560ti and need help installing it. I tryed a few times at installing but failed, ill tell you what i did.

- I uninstalled all of my Internal GPU (Intel Graphics family) drivers, the ones that i thought that they where the gpu ones, but i think i didnt delete em all.

- Went through Bios and did Auto bybass Internal GPU.

Both didnt work when i put my DVI cable in and then tryed my VGA cable, both didnt work, so i reinstalled all my internal gpu drivers and now back to square 1.

Any1 help, send my in the right direction please.

Thanks (my first time doing this)

Go into bios and disable your onboard graphics.

Install your card in the pci-e slot on your mobo. Make sure it is seated in the slot good.
Go to Nvidia website and download and install the latest drivers for your video card....then should be good to go.

And make sure your plugging into the NEW gpu, not your on-board one.

Should be in I/O devices, or something like that.

Did you connect a power cable to the card?
