I just installed a GTX 570 and an 800W power supply to my hp a6720y and my more demanding games are running smoothly. The only problem is, sometimes they wont boot up, for no particular reason it seems. Batman Arkham asylum was working perfectly the day I installed the hardware, but today it won't start! Furthermore, all of my popcap games like Peggle, Chuzzle and PvZ wont boot up. I have never had this problem before. What should I do?

MS, have you searched for patches for the games? This is the first thing that I do when installing a game. It may be that the new components are too high tech for the games. I have had this happen. A patch can solve this problem.

Ye my PC boots up fine, everything works except for these particular games. It's the damnedest thing!
And all of the aforementioned games are through steam which keeps them updated. Would the patch go through steam or do I still need to google it or go to the game website?
Thank God WoW is still working LOL.

I've a strange problem with the mentioned card. (GTX 570) and a 8200 elite pc.
the card is not visible in the device manager, it seems to be not up or recognized by the bios. I tried the card on another pc and is working fine. do I have to install a different power supply with more capacity ? at the moment I'm trying with the original one and an external supply for the 4 power connections on the vga card.
Thanks for the help you could give me

try to uninstall the video driver from BIOS then make a restert for you desktop and then install again last driver from nvidia website for your video card and do again a restert and maybe your problem will solved
