Installed new graphics card. PC won't boot.

Specs: Macintosh
I'm trying to set up multiple monitors on my PC. I put a new graphics card into one of the PCI slots, plugged my monitors into the new graphics card, and now my computer won't boot. It turns on, but nothing happens... and the monitors don't display anything. I removed the new graphics card and plugged the monitor I was originally using into the display adapter, and the same thing still happens. The power turns on, but nothing loads or displays. What have I done??

Before plugging the PCI card in you may need to go into your BIOS and switch the Graphics to the PCI bus.

Thanks for your response... but why would the PC not boot with the new graphics card removed from the PCI slot?

When u start the system, the system look for display adapter by default it's pci-e(PEG) or AGP if u didn't set the initial display to pci it will not detect any pci v-card.
