Specs: Windows Vista
ok, I have a radeon sapphire x800 GTO graphics card. The only way I can get it to work is to turn on my computer and wait 3 seconds and slide it in and it will work fine but if I put it in and turn on my computer my screen is black? What could the problem be? When I wait and put it in and I go to my drivers on my computer it says that the drivers are installed and that the graphics card is working properly. Ive tried EVERYTHING to get it to work. I have a dell intel quadcore desktop. Can anyone please help??

Ill see what I can do about the power supply. Not really sure what to do tho. Well I know the ram is good and the slots are good because my computer tells me whats in the slots but it wont let me use it. The 1 gig ram is made by a different manufacturer so I think thats why it doesnt work. Any tips on what to do about my power supply?
