I just got a new gpu and tried upgrading it but when i put everything back and booted it up it turns on, keyboard lights up and screen lights to a black screen with nothing on it. No text about bios or anything, just straight to black screen and then it starts beeping ( 8 times and then it will pause and then repeat). please help I need this fixed soon so I can work on stuff for school! :(

Have you got yourself a modded driver for your card? New cards will not work in older machines without a special driver.

I had this issue...it was the stupid lithium battery connection...put in a new battery and fixed my connection...problem solved.
