try switching back to the old card and see if you get an image.. better yet, what was your old card.. could be that your PSU isn't up to par.. 26A on the 12v is kinda low.. dual rail psu?

I'd check the old gfx card first.. you could also try the barebones approach.. remove all but 1 ram, unplug all non-necessary componenets from teh PSU (dvd/cd/media card reader etc) and put the new gfx card in and see if you can get back in the system...one would hope the gfx didnt die on you, but you did say you got in one time before this issue so it doesnt seem like that would be the problem.

thanks for replay but everybody says that psu is enough, i tried to switch it on recent hours and it was succesfull, but when my cpu is under load for ex:with gta4 , the temperature gets =core0~95c and core1~86c, then i restarted it and got this on monitor -bios recovery- wtf? have i to flash my bios? i have succesfully installed the cooler but still high temps :( what should i do? i think i dont have to upgrade my psu because i havent oc_ed the cpu...
