Make sure the card is properly seated.

Can you bring it up in safe mode?
If you can, download the latest driver from
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
and install.

If the only thing you changed is the graphic card and you can't even boot off the CD, I'd wonder if the graphic card is bad. You have the old card and that works fine? If so, try your card in another computer. If it's still bad, the card is the culprit.

ok so i just put my old card in the pc and everything works fine .. so i've tried to uninstall the drivers then put the card without any drivers but no succes ... still the same error since this card requires 2 pci plugs i used one that was used for the old card and another one that was going straight from the PSU is that what i had to do .. or should i use the 2 pci from the power supply?

i still get the 0x000000DA (0x00000504 , 0xC0438C90 , 0x00000010 ,0x00007192) error

Sorry that just didn't make much sense.

*If you don't have the required power going to the card, no wonder why you're getting errors. Plug in the two or required PCI power cables and it should work fine.

Could you state your power supply?

EDIT: I always forget that there is a 'My System Specs'

Yes, you absolutely need the 2 dedicated video PCI plugs installed. If you don't have the correct plugs then you need to buy a new power supply to run the 470.

You don't say what the old card was, but it is important to uninstall all the video software first, then uninstall the driver, then Shut Down (off), then replace the card, then boot. In that order, no exceptions.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Remove a Program to uninstall the video software. With nVidia you can uninstall the driver here also (that uninstalls the card). You will then be asked to restart. Do not restart - Shut Down.

Are you replacing an ATI card with an nVidia one?

you dont need dedicated pcie plugs you can use adapters ie 2 x molex to 1 x pcie that said i suspect the psu may not be up to the task , what power supply do you have?

edit scrub that i see you have a thermaltake what is the model number? so we can see its amperage and how many 12v rails it has
