Hi,

Are you migrating from On-Board to External graphics? Is then you may need to do the following...
  1. Plug the VGA cable into the On-Board port
  2. Access the BIOS (press DEL, F1, F10 or F12 when 1st boot screen appears)
  3. (normally) Under Advanced settings find details of GFX
  4. Change from Internal to External (PCI-E)
Now plug the cable into the new card and hopefully you should have your image back.

Wow!
Thanks a tonne for replyin!
I cannot find Anything like External or Internal in my bios.
All i can see In Advanced Tab (of bios) is a list which looks like this
1.CPU
2.Periphrals
3.Video and !@#$%$
4.
5.
I dont remember them. But under all of these ,there is nothing called PCI-E

And I would like to tell you this, Under Periphral-> OnBoard i can see PCI/IGD and PCI.
But not PCI-E

He is saying go into system start up and go into the bios iformation section

this can be done when booting hitting the delete button on start or what ever f-xxx option they give

Once inside look for chipset and look through the configuration of the gpu and check if it is enabled or disable meaning onboard video or the PCI-e configuration you are looking to achieve

Also if you are only seeing PCI something must be wrong or your board simply doesnt use that kind of bus type but that would make no sense cause you are useing a zotac 240 gt it could be possible that section of your board has burned or failed

What is main criteria under which my gfx card should be selected?
Does it have something to do with my motherboard?
That is, is it enough if my motherbrd has an pci-E 16 slot? Or does it have something more to do?
The gfx works fine on my frnd's system, but not mine ..
