Recently I Just bought a new video card.
When I installed the video card and turn the power on
and when in comes to loading the os it cant load to the OS.

My Computer can boot up , go to the bios , and choose an operatings system and Mode.

You are connecting the monitor to the new card aren't you?

Maybe I am not understanding what is happening.

With the new card installed can you see video when you turn on the computer? If so, describe what does happen.

Yes I Connected my monitor to the new graphics card.
The card can be detected in the bios but when i load onto my OS it cant load.

When its already loading to the OS the screen just stays black.
I tried safe mode and vga mode but it doesnt work.

Intel boards sometimes have a jumper to disable on board video. Or there may be a setting in the BIOS (setup) screens.

Try booting into Safe mode (F8 at start up).

I change the setting in BIOS in plug and play into AGP and runned it in Safe Mode but I still can't load to my OS.
Is it possible that my video isnt compatable w/ my system ?

Try this. Restore your computer back to the onboard by removing the add in card. After booting into Windows right click an empty space on the desktop and choose properties> settings> advanced> adapter> properties> driver> uninstall.

Then exit Windows and shut down the computer. install the AGP card and boot to the BIOS. Look for a setting for the shared RAM and set as low as possible. Also set to use AGP add in card first. Save and exit.

Hopefully the computer will now find new hardware and try to install. Hit esc key when that happens. After Windows settles down then install the drivers and software for the card from the CD. Follow the prompts.
