Windows 7: New MB - new graphics card won't start at boot time ?

New MB - new graphics card won't start at boot time ?

I'm preparing my system for a Win 10 upgrade. Installed a new motherboard-memory-cpu etc
With the new graphics card Geforce GT 740 sc (2 gig) the system initiates...but then nothing

If I remove new card and replace it with the old Geforce GT 630... and system works fine - replace with new GT 740 and nothing happens at start up ? Card is seated properly in slot...fan on card spins...but no video

Do I need to unistall the Gt 630 drivers...etc and then install the new GT 740..? Or what else would keep the New GT 740 from initializing at system start up ?

Thanks...TiminAz

Considering this is a new card, it may be defective.

Have you tried a BIOS reset? If not give that a try with the GT740.

Ok...been awhile since I fiddle with the bios...how do you do a "reset"...and how do I check or update the bios to the current bios for the board ?

Thanks....

There's usually several BIOS "reset" options. I haven't checked for your specific board, but usually when you exit the BIOS there will be an option to reset it to defaults. The others, either a jumper or push button to reset it on the motherboard and finally with the PC powered off, remove the CR2032 CMOS (BIOS) backup battery for at least 10 minutes.

If you have any custom BIOS settings, such as the boot drive, that will have to be reset after the BIOS reset.

A BIOS update would be at the Motherboard vendor's site. They usually have installation instructions.
