Default Graphics card not working - help

My friend just bought a new graphics card. At the moment he has onboard graphics so he just put the new one in a PCI slot. It was working fine until the computer was restarted and now both of them do not work. The new graphics card was inserted into different PCI slots but it did not sort the problem.

Any ideas of what might be wrong?
