When the GT 220 is installed does the system make all the correct noises like its booting up and loading into Windows?

You are connecting the monitor to the GT 220 correct?

Thats what I'm saying. You should install 64bit OS.
Without it you can't run all 64bit support softwares like the new Adobe ones.

Well I don't know how to solve your problem but then I saw you are running 32bit OS so just informed you. :)

This is what i think you should try:

Remove VGA cable from the back of the motherboard and reinsert GTX 220. Connect the vga cable to the graphics card and make sure all other video cables are removed from your monitor and motherboard except for the 220's video cable.

If you are using a different cable (DVI or HDMI) then try changing the input stream on your monitor if it has that feature. -- Just make sure that the monitor is only connected to the GTX 220.

You can run your Computer without the card. Right?

Maybe try anyone other card in your PC. Just to check out whether it is a Mobo problem or GPU.

When I got my new Computer then me too faced the same. Then I contacted the guy who built it, he said that connect the wire here & there.... blah blah.
And that done the trick!
So I guess its something Cable-o-Matic problem :lol:

Try fitting the Monitor cable in other slots. Fit it in every Slot, and try.
