The machine had more than one video connection and I move the video cord to the display to the other video output port and there it was!

As to the odd new icon issue, it's either a machine in need of repair or malware. I can't give one idea an edge so let's go get the malware out of the way with advice from Grif at 7726-6132_102-5098912.html?tag=posts;msg5099421

i am on the same computer with my older card and there is no problem with this one and the pc runs fine. could you explain how i correctly can install a new gpu with pci express en two psu slots. because i think its something with my driver.

Since the old card is working that's a sign.

so it's about the drivers you think?
by BIGMG12 / August 11, 2011 6:51 AM PDT

well how i got it kinda working lst time was that i deinstaled al my excisting drivers of this card what had no problems with that and then installed the new drivers for my new card and then it worked kind of half so ill take a look at this. also could it be that it is because i got an intel cpu an asrock motherboard and my new gpu is an amd sapphire?

It's likely to be a driver issue.

But there is that OTHER area I encounter a lot. Tell more about the POWER SUPPLY. Be precise.

Supply a link to the power supply so I can check out Amperes or just supply the full set of numbers from the side panel of the PSU.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
