My PC wont show any display when this card is installed, I have 400w power supply.
using SATA hdd , core 2 quad 2 gb ram
when i install this card, monitor wont give any signal, just orange
light on power button, ( it turns green when display is showing up )
and when i remove the card, it works fine with integrated video card.
It worked fine for about 1.5 week , then yesterday morning, it stopped working when i turned my pc on.
The problem occured probably because of a power shortage of motherboard battery malfunction, if your motherboard has an integrated graphics card you then need to enter setup and disable it or choose which graphis card your pc has to use but you have to do this while connected to the on-board vga slot as the other one won't be working, you will problably find the choice under the
'integrated periferals" menu in the setup menu, and to access it you have to press the "DEL" button when your pc starts-F10 in some devices-

Hi karban0 It means your power unit could deliver max 400W in extreme conditions but only for a very short while ( one or two seconds or even less ) . So , you could encounter great difficulties to get your pc running smoothly under heavy conditions , especially if you are a fervent game fan . It would be wise to replace your power unit by one of a larger wattage . This is very easy and relatively cheep operation . Regards , fanaudi .
The fact that your old Palit GT220 worked shows that your system components are NOT faulty.
The Palit GTX 260 requires the following
1) A PCI-Express 2.0 comliant motherboard.
2) Two 6 pin PCI-Express power connectors.
3) Minimum 450W or greater system power supply.
Lets break this down a little
1) You already have a motherboard that supports this card so no problem there.
2) I am unsure whether your power supply has two 6 pin PCI-Express power connectors, it should have one though and the GTX 460 package should have a molex to 6 pin PCI Express power adapter that you can use for the other.
3) Now it comes to the power supply itself. Currently your system has a 480W power supply. Through some calculating it seems that a system of this spec should have at least a 550W power supply. This means that your current power supply is 70W out. This may be why you get no signal, there is enough power for allthe other comonents but not enough left over for your GPU.
Before you go out and buy a new power supply just check that both 6 pin power connecters are firmly clipped in. If after that the card still doesn't power up then I suggest you purchase a Cooler Master Exteme power plus 550W or greater power supply.
There is no need to go for another card just keep you pc well ventilated. and try to install some cooling fans in it. but if you want real cooling solutions then just purchase a coolermaster gpu coolers from the shops and i tell in the whole world that, they are the best company in producing CPU and GPU Coolers.
It could be your power supply, your monitor, your graphics card or a software problem.
Try to reinstall your graphics card drivers, if that doesnt help try another monitor.
If that also doesnt help I suggest you temporarily install another graphics card. If that also doesnt fix your problem, you should go buy another power supply.
Hi, has the problem recently started after the installation of sp3 because it has been known to cause problems like your having. If the computer is a new build it could be one of two problem, the asrock motherboard which i personally wont use anymore because of constant failure, or your power supply is not powerful enough. i would recommend nothing less than 500w power supply for gaming pc`s.
Not really a solution but just thought i would point out that the 5200 card is pretty old by todays standards and will only be good for playing games from a while ago. What games are you hoping to play?
This would usually indicate that there is a problem that is causing your computer to not boot correctly all of the time. What you have described could be many different problems and without more information I cannot say which one it is.
1. Hard drive. I have ran into Hard Drives that for some reason do not start up correctly right away when you put power to them. This can cause the initial startup to hang possibly indefinitely. 2. Video Card. Something probably firmware is causing your video card to not start up properly when power is first applied. 3. PSU. The power supply could cause similar problems if it cannot supply enough power because the highest power draw is when you first turn on the computer. When you push the reset button the power is already being supplied to most of the components and the ones that did not have enough power to start properly before can do so now. 4. CPU. If the CPU has some minor problems it can cause similar problems. In any case to fix it you can try clocking down the CPU but you are better off replacing it. 5. RAM. I have had similar problems with RAM. Clocking down the RAM fixed the issue. 6. Settings in BIOS. I would check to make sure the setting for init display on boot is set for PCI-e.
