RE: XPS 8700 - Black screen before getting to Windows 7 screen. Help plz.
Power off, remove the MSI GTX 660, put our video card back in, power on. If it boots faster, the culprit was the retail video card. If it doesn't boot faster, power off, put the MSI GTX 660 back in. Disconnect all devices from the XPS 8700 except the monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Power on. What happens?
