Video Card Trouble

Specs: Windows XP 32 Bit
I am having some issues installing a PNY GeForce 9400 GT 1024 mb vers. I have Windows XP 32 bit with SP3 pack. The motherboard is EVGA NVIDIA Geforce 7050/nforce 610i. CPU Pentium D 3.73 Extreme Edition, 4gigs of ram.

When I installed the card and booted up the comp it does not recongnize the card. I went into device manager and disabled the onboared display driver, rebooted and still no luck. Took a look under sytem devices and there is a yellow exclamation next to one of the PCI standard PCI-toPCI bridge and it reads code 12.

I am lost, your help would be greatly appreciated.

The 9400GT is an extremely weak card & in most cases, the 1024MB version is slower than the 512MB version. There's no need for 1024MB on such a low end card anyway. They only do that to sucker people into buying because "more memory is better", right? I hope you didn't buy it for gaming...if you did, you're gonna be very disappointed. Make sure you have the 6-pin PCIe plug connected.

You should not have disabled in the onboard video in Device Manager. That may come back to bite you. Re-enable it. Then boot into the BIOS & disable the onboard the right way. And look for a setting called "Initial Display 1st" & change it to PCIe. Then shutdown, install the card, connect the monitor, bootup & install the drivers.
