Not Getting signal with a new graphic card on Windows 8/10

 

Not getting Signal, Turn of Secure Boot!

In Windows 8 Secure boot is enabled by default on verified Windows 8 Computers. If you install a Graphics card that is not compatible with UEFI the system will not boot. If we want to be able to use the Graphic card we must disable Secure Boot.

Step 1:

Power of the computer and take out the Graphics card. Then reconnect the monitor through the old Graphics card or use the onboard Graphics if present.

Step2:

Now boot your system and go into your BIOS setup. For most computers this will be a key like F2. Head over to the Boot menu. (On your computer this might be on an different location the image below is from an Dell Computer.)

Step 3:

Now Disable Secure boot and enable Legacy Boot. This time if you insert your Graphics Card you should be able to boot up your computer.
