Hi and welcome to sevenforums

Could you do a couple of things for us

First go into device manager (type device manager in search) and see if there are any unknown drivers (yellow triangle on them). If so those need to have their drivers updated.

Second could you go into event viewer (yep type event viewer in search) and see if there are any errors in the "app" tab relating to this

If there are unknown devices, or errors could you use the built in snipping tool to take screenshots and upload them to us using the attachment (shaped like a paperclip) Icon in your reply

Thanks\

Ok do you have a win 7 dvd? if so boot from it. decide which graphics card you want to use and stay with it.

Hello Wicker,

When updating your drivers, the screen flicker is normal, but it shouldn't last any more then 5-10 seconds.

If you could, could you go into device manager and check if there are any Yellow Indications next to your drivers, and take a screenshot?

ok thanks guys for helping me out

im currently installing windows 7 from a dvd again. Ive got my good grapics card in there now after it goes through the installation process the screen goes black but doesnt restart itself is that normal and should i restart manually? now ive found after that, the computer with my new graphics card can only get up to the bit where those different colour balls make up the windows logo then the screen goes black and thats it, although safe mode does work though and if i put in my old graphics card it works normally though the mouse freezing still occurs once i have reinstalled it i dont think safe mode will allow me to use the ethernet ports so should i put the old graphics card in there so i can come online with the desktop to do that stuff u said

Try installing with only one memory stick. also are you doing any overclocking ?
