  1. Hello, I have a aspire 1430G desktop that has an AMD E-450 APU and I recently upgraded the PSU to support my also recently gained Gigabyte GT610. When I place the GT610 into its PCI slot and turn it on I get a black screen that says no input detected. When I remove the graphics card my computer runs like normal, and now im stuck with not a clue in the world of what to do to get the GT610 to work with my desktop. Any suggestions of what to do?

    Are you connecting the monitor to the card? In order for the card to work the monitor must be connected to a port on the card.

    If not the reason for the black screen is the integrated graphics is disabled when installing a dedicated graphics card.
