 Post subject: Change the graphic card
 Post Posted: Wed Jan 13, 2016 11:49 am 
 
I need to know what to do first before taking out the old graphic card and put a new one in? I believe that I have to remove all the drivers and program that AMD have in my desktop. Then take out the AMD graphic card out and put the new one (Nvidia) in the desktop. Is that correct what I just have said above. If not, please advise to post here before I go ahead with this. I will wait for a few days to see any comments that the members here in this forum have post related to my message.

Happy New Year to all the members here in this forum.

Thank you,

John

Yes, you would remove all the AMD video drivers and software then physically remove the card. Of course you would power down the system before removing the card. Put in the new card and power up. A lot of video cards today have a secondary power socket that must be connected to a cable. You will then need to install the NVidia drivers and software.
