Desktop shuts down with no video

Specs: patriot memory 4gb x2 / 4 sata drives / 1 dc rom / 650PW NEW / geforce 8800gt 512mb pci-e video card i forget the processor model but its an intel quad i had this pc for over 4 years and all the components are original except for the power supply which was replaced days ago and the hard drives have been swapped out for newer one running windows 7 with all the service packs then i noticed windows was only seeing 4gb of memory.. went into the bios and changed settings in the memory overides, some speed seetings, unfortunately i didnt make notes rebooted and the system never came back up, i mean it would turn on but no video decided to reseat all components, one at a time, all with the same results, bootup then cpu led (red light) will light up then pc will shut down thought maybe video card was bad since i wasnt getting any responce with video whatsoever, i decided to purchase another video card with the same results thought i could reset the bios to its original state by taking the bios battery out (round silver battery on the motherboard) and left it out for at least 2 hours, put the battery back and booted up again with the same result

This would seem to indicate that the RAM or motherboard does not work correctly with the settings that you set. There should be a jumper on the motherboard for BIOS reset. Also most newer systems will automatically detect a problem and reset to defaults after 3-5 failed boot attempts. The most likely reason for only seeing 4GB would either be that you have 32-bit version of Windows 7 or that one stick of RAM is bad. To see and use more than 4GB of RAM you need to have a 64 bit operating system.

Windows does not see the Nvidia G100 video card in the PCI-E slot. Does not even show up in device manager. Tried to install drivers, but the driver installer says that I don't have any compatible hardware...


Do you have another computer to try it out in? It might be that either the card isn't working, the PCI slot is not working, or the card isn't compatible with the motherboard.

First make sure that you have the P4 connector (the square one at the top of the board connected to your P4 power from the power supply.
From here I would disconnect the data cables from the hdd, optical drives, and remove all video/peripheral cards. You should have only the RAM, CPU, and power connected, then try to boot again.
If this works, then add 1 device at a time until it fails to start. This will isolate the component that is giving you problems.
With a single stick of RAM, try to get the computer to POST. (if possible, test the ram in another machine first to ensure that RAM is good)

8800gt black screen


Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change).
It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports.
Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card.
Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.

Upgrade card


Well, these are the minimum specs for Age of Conan:

OS: Windows Vista/XP
Processor: 3GHz Pentium IV
RAM: 1GB RAM
Video Card: Shader Model 2.0 and 128MB RAM: NVIDIA GeForce 5800 or ATI 9800

These are the specs of your computer (base):

  • Intel Pentium 4 550 (3.4GHz) Processor
  • 1GB PC2-4300 DDR2 Memory
  • Two 74GB WD SerialATA Hard Drives in RAID0 Drive Array
  • 16x DVD+/-R and 48x CD-RW Burner Optical Drives
  • Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Audio
  • NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Graphics Card with 256MB
Seems to me that you are okay. Would a faster computer be better? Of course. But as you are, the game should play alright. Upgrading to an 8 series Nvidia is worth the change, though.

Updating my GT5464


The 8800GT will work and the GT5464 is a core 2 Processor motherboard. But why put such a high grade video card into a motherboard that will only take two gig memory? If you are a gamer which most likely you are, by you wanting a 640mb video card. My I suggest looking into a motherboard that will take two video cards. I found one for a co-worker that came was a complete PC with two 512mb video card for $400.00. new. Less the hard drive and burner. Running dual video is where the gamers are going to. Plus you can up grade to Quad. You can't up the GT5464 to Quad.
