when you inserted the graphics card did you also connect any required supplementary power connector? It is common for PCIE graphics cards to require an additional power connection. Your motherboard manual will have details.

In many BIOS versions there is no need to disable the onboard.
The default is to use PCIE if present, and revert to onboard if PCIE is absent.

in the card manual it says some thing about it it says " connect the DC Power Plug from the system power supply unit if your card has an auxiliary power connector (for specifiq cards only). Some models come with DC power cable, wich connects between the card and the system power supply uint".?? it came without any DC Power Cables!!???
P.S There are no DC Connection On The Video Card Only SPDIF IN

The additional power connector is on the motherboard not the graphics card. The motherboard has a 24 pin power connector and supplementary 8 pin connector. ( I think you plug in two x 4 pin molex connectors. Those connections provide the additional 12V that is required for the PCIe slot

The aux power connection is required by high performance gaming cards, not low end cards.The 8400GS is extremely low end, low performance & does NOT require an aux power connection.

Do NOT disable the onboard video in Device Manager...you're only looking for trouble by doing so. Make sure your new card is fully seated in it's slot & that the monitor cable it connected to the new card. Boot up, enter the BIOS & see if there's a way to disable the onboard by changing one of the settings. Some boards will auto-disable the onboard when a card is detected. Try looking in the BIOS chapter of your motherboard manual.

Have you considered the possibility the graphics card is DOA?

I have had a situation where a brand new card failed out of the box.
