GeForce 8400 upgrade problem

\015 I have an Optiplex gx 240 with 1 gig RAM, 1.8 gig processor and I want to upgrade the video card with a GeForce 8400 gs. When the computer boots after installing the card it is recognized, but the boot process stops. Any suggestions? I have tried switching to a diff pci slot--no change.\015

Answers :

I would try two things: One pull the GeF 8400 out and boot as you normally did, install the drivers for the 8400. Then reinsert the Vid Card (8400) and when it looks for driver viola... If that fails:
Second if you can get in at all try the old F8 key on the boot up...and see if you can get in using SAFE MODE...and install your drivers from that point. Assuming the second set fails update the video driver using device manager.
That's a great vid card...good luck..leave a rating please.
