Re: My friends new video card.
the 1394 is onboard firewire plugings.. plug int he graphics card and while booting up hold down f8 and see if you can get into safe mode.. could be a driver problems (since there are no drivers isntalled yet) or a resolution problem. regardless of the settingsin bios you should be able to atleast post windows.
