ML310 Server - new video card

I need to install a new graphics card on a HP ProLiant ML310 Gen3 v2 Server as the on-board one is failing.


Card - EVGA GeForce 8400 GS


Upon installation the BIOS boot hangs after initial check (100% / no errors) and remains at a black screen indefinitely instead of progressing to the ProLiant logo boot prior to windows.


I am thus unable to get into the bios to enable the PCI 16. 


Front System LED Indicator flashes red at this point.


Any assitance will be appreciated.
