Computer Crashing after buying Graphic Card?

July 2, 2011 at 17:11:59
Specs: Windows Vista
I just bought a new Monitor( LG LED HD 22inch, with HDMI CORD) and a graphics card( ati radeon 5570 HD).

Computer: HP PAVILLION a6700y

Alright, after getting this all hooked up, the first time i turned on the computer the power button started flashing, and beeping. It flashed and beeped about 7 times before it finally loaded up. This went on for a couple days until it finally started to load up to the login screen then finally crash...
The screen would go black as the windows symbol popped up, then "THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!"
I took it to a repair shop, thinking oh yeah there is something totally wrong with it. They plug it in, with the new graphics card in it and everything, without the monitor. For them, it runs perfectly. Thinking that the problem was resolved, i take it home hook it up like usuall and the same problem occurs. Can anyone help?

The shop probably connected to the VGA connector.
You are using the HDMI. Attach both cables and select the input on the screen once the machine boots.

It would benefit us if you reply whether it works or not. Thanks!

If the card worked for the repair shop with their monitor & not yours, you have to try a different monitor. What about your old monitor?

The power supply didn't change between your house & the repair shop.

Try the deal at some friends house to double check your suspicions.

If passes there also, I'd have an electrician look at your electrical system. It may be that there is an issue. Anything from over to low voltage and a new issue is the result of many electronic devices on the line. They cause harmonics in the line that can't be read easily with normal meters. Fluke makes a special meter to detect this issue.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
