But go back to what worked. If that fails something is broken.

So it's back to before the addition?

If so, be sure the video cable didn't fall off the display or PC.
Test the monitor on another PC or this PC on another monitor.

With the power removed gently push the video card into its slot.
Recheck your work and try again.

-> Leaving out machine details can hamper the discussion. For example if this was one of those onboard Nvidia AMD X2 machines, then I link about that failure.

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?
