Are you sure that the card is seated in the slot properly?

Also did use a discharge strap when fitting it? If not the electrical charge from your body can destroy computer components.

If it does it has to be disabled in the bios.When the PC is booting keep pressing F8 and opt for safe mode. This starts pc with minimum drivers etc - then have a look in Device Manager - Start> right click My Computer>manage in drop down list> Device Manager. You may be able to see whats going on

that is safe mode not the bios, to get into bios start pc then keep pressing del, then look for onboard grahics and switch to disable, then press F10 restart with saving

Depending on make. You will see the option on startup :thumbsup:

Best to try to see what is going on before going into Bios - Could be a bad driver and as you have already been told, getting into bios depends on the make (not stated) could be keep pressing delete, F1,F2 or F10

A bad driver could not ever cause no signal on boot, if you're not seeing a POST screen it's something much more fundamental than Windows drivers. Windows doesn't start getting in the way till further down the line than that :thumbsup:

OP: I'd suggest you check the card's seated properly and that any power connectors are attached properly, X1650's often require more juice than the AGP port can supply. Failing that sounds like a fault to me.

EDIT: LOL, too late :thumbsup:
