I just installed a amd radeon HD 7770 and new 550 watt antec power supply. Now my computer will not boot up unless i put it into safe mode. In safe mode it works normally but outside of that the computer pauses at "Welcome" 

My computer is a GT5449E, the only modificiatinons ive made is add all the memory i could and the modifications mentioned above. The computer was working fine before these instillations. I am currently running on windows 7. 

I have tried installing graphics drivers, but i can not do that in safe mode as it tells me the installation fails due to detection problems. 

When we installed the new products there was no power connected to the machine (all external wires disconnected). plugged in the graphics card with the 6 pin plug. Installed the graphics card in to the correct slot, and made sure everything was in order. We also vacummed out most of the dust before we installed it. 

I will admit i am not the most "tech savy" person but i was hoping that someone may know why my computer can only boot up in safe mode. 

Thank you.
