I recently purchased a Gainward 9800GT 1024mb DDR3 card. After installing card and checking system requirements, booted up ok but monitor went straight to power saving mode. So I installed the drivers after replacing old card, rebooted with new card but still the same so I tried VGA cable, nothing. What have I missed?

What's your specs?
Do you have the 'green' edition or not?
When is it going to power save...before post, after, win logo, desktop?
Can you get to desktop in safe more?

A few things I can think of..

1/ Have you connected the power supply to the card?
2/ Is the card loading a resolution not supported by your monitor? (try safe mode)
3/ Bad card?
4/ Did you uninstall the old drivers before installing the newer ones?
