Hi everybody. Smile

I added a video card (I was having an integrated one), and now, after few seconds after the boot, I have a black screen.
Even with recovery mode.

What can I do...?

Thanks! Wink

ahah, no, sorry...
ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO.

I was thinking the problem was the change, not the model...

Maybe it is a good idea to also disable the other card in the BIOS.

Thank you very much!!! Smile
It was "simply", I was thinking I had to reinstall all the system...
Hopefully I (you!) solved it. Thank you again.
