Old Graphics card needs replaced(750ti) replacing with 1080ti(highest i can put with motherboard?) Z77 Sabertooth Motherboard, have a external disk drive for graphics card disk. Anyways going from VGA monitor to HDMI/Display port and after installation I get Black screen(yes I'm new at this) Solutions show as follows, take out graphics-boot up using onboard-disable onboard and set boot to safe mode-shut down-install new card turn on-install graphics drivers?-turn safe mode off restart. Sorry for my ignorance, but is this correct?  Currently sitting with onboard graphics and new card has to be installed.

Your motherboard should support even something like the RTX 2000 series -- as long as  you have a PCI-E X16 slot, you should have no problems.

CPU bottlenecking is another issue.

 

  1. Make sure you Windows installation is up-to-date. The newer drivers require the latest version of Windows 8.1/10
  2. Make sure the old drivers for the GTX 750 Ti have been uninstalled
  3. Use the LATEST drivers from nVidia's website -- the drivers on the CD is outdated

Really was just wanting upgrade from my 750ti even though it handles all games I own on computer the 1080ti blows it out of the water. With 750 ti and old monitor  I usually set custom settings, medium quality and some setting off just got a good price for the 1080ti and new monitor, just need to get it working.

You typically don't need to run the computer in safe mode.

Like I said

  • Uninstall the drivers with the GTX 750 Ti still installed
  • Turn off the PC
  • Take the GTX 750 Ti out
  • Install the GTX 1080 Ti  (PC should still start up and display without any drivers)
  • Got to nVidia's website and download the latest Windows 10 drivers ( https://www.geforce.com/drivers )

have you tried 

1. DDU every driver with your old setup (even the IntelHD driver)

2. Turn OFF PC (don't let windows search for driver)

3. install new GPU and let windows handle the driver 

4. if success update driver

 

if still doesn't work 

try to clear CMOS before turning on PC with GPU installed

 

i get this problem too while upgrading PC in my local church (has ASUS H61 motherboard)and my personal pc (has Gigabyte Z77 Motherboard) and this is how i solve it. because both seems had a werid habbit of turning on on board GPU even after i turn it off in the bios if i remove PCI-E GPU and re install it with different PCI-E GPU

 

but if you don't have a lot of free time i suggest just take it to the shop because it's a weird problem and i'm not sure that your problem can be solved the same way

PC shop said:

1: Remove DDR3 SDRAM

2: Remove old GPU

3: Restart without any in SDRAM slots to let it reset

4:Uninstall old GPU drivers +Disable onboard

5: Install new GPU and let windows handle the driver 

and if all else fails

remove battery(clear CMOS) don't know if it has a battery, or at least not 1 I can see first glance

if that fails

bring it in cause he really wants to see this...lol (hope it's not a dud)

 

750ti is ddr5

1080 ti is ddr5x

may be some issue with frequency? and removing my SDRAM may solve that
