Windows 7: Black screen after long post bootup

Black screen after long post bootup

I just bought a gtx 970 to replace the 9750. I did a new install on a new ssd. I installed all the appropriate mobo drivers and now it's time to install the geforce drivers. I shut off the computer, connected the 6pins to the video card, and made sure the video card is secure seated. Turned on the computer and noticed the post screen, but it lingers for a while then I get a black screen. I'm not able to enter the BIOS.

Could this be a faulty video card?

Hi,
Could be which exact brand and model 970 ?
Looks like the board has on board graphic's so remove it and use that
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (rev. 1.0)
Look at the pci-e slot for damaged pins.

I just bought it from ncix so I contacted them instead. First technician said it was defective. Second technician blamed my PSU then my mobo. The video output on my mobo works find though so I'm not even sure any more.

If I'm understanding the sequence of things.

You can use the motherboard video and use the computer.
Is that correct?

If that is correct set your bios to default while you are using on board video.
Shut down your computer.
Installed your new video card and install the cables back to your video card.
Boot and see if anything appears on the screen. "Anything"
If nothing appears on the screen, shout down the computer.
Install your old video card with cables and try again.

Let us know what happens.

By chance have you done any motherboard bios updating?
