8400gs use low power (not a gaming card) 250w psu will run the card fine.
Do the following
-uninstall onboard video drivers.
-Enter bios and disable igp, return shared memory, set initial display to pci e (if 8400gs is pci e) or pci (if 8400gs is pci). Save settings and shutdown the system.
-Remove power cord and install the v-card.
Start the system and install driver. U can download latest driver from nvidia website.
