    OK thanks... The bios is set to PCIE but there is only one slot. It only had a setting for 16k with no other options. Problem now having restarted again because it locked up its gone into windows repair and I have no display for the last few hours other than being able to see the mouse curser. Unfortunately I didn't get a disc with the pc which came fom ebay with a new build of Windows 7 on it and I don't know how i'm going to reload it with Win 7 or 10... Beginning to think its now just scrap.
    However i'm very grateful for the help i've had from you guys and if I can find a way to actually get a display up again I will have another go and report back...
    Thanks

    It is easy to get Win10 Disks form M$ , Win7 too , so don't worry about that part.

    What's your system specs? Please do this System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums - Windows 10 Forums so we can help you further.

    I'm thinking it's the motherboard already showing problems.

    Thanks for that. I'm making some progress in getting the machine to actually work again and as soon as I can will do the above and fill out the specs.... The sooner the better I think because I don't like my sons laptop at all.
    As always thanks for your help and support.

    I was having the same thoughts as RoasterMen about a bad MB or PCIE Slot , both hard to figure out .

    Is your Warranty up on the Machine ?

    Yes it was an ebay purchase so doesn't owe me a lot but all was well when I first got it 6 months ago even with the current graphics card in it. First thing I did was upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10. Was about to run the utility Roastermen suggested and post the specs but it won't start up again so i'll do that when I make some progress.
    Thanks

    GeForce 210 doesn't need any 6-pin power connector to power it up, it only consumes at about 5-15W.
