If you've changed the hardware you may need to hit the CUDA switch.
Where that is on the motherboard depends on what model you've got.
Look for a red pushbutton somewhere on the motherboard. You may also
be able to pull the plug, then remove the battery, give it a minute,
and replace it. You'll lose your preferences, but that shouldn't be a
big deal.
