  1. First off I am new to this so i would like to apologize if this is in the wrong section or if I am doing this wrong in any way.

    I have just recently purchased a new video card because the one i had died off. After putting in the new video card and booting up it gets to the black screen with the blinking underscore then goes completely black and doesn't change. I was wondering if someone could help me out with this.

    The new video card is a Galaxy GeForce 8400GS. Motherboard is a Foxconn G33M02. I am able to boot in safe mode.
