Question about Intel D945GCZLKR (BLKD945GCZLKR) Motherboard
I wanted to upgrade from ATI 9600 to HIS 2600 xt. They both wotk via the agp slot. The HIS requires a power connection as if it were a drive. I uninstalled the old card and its drivers. I put the HIS card in and the machine will not boot. Starts to power up and red lighton the case stays on and nothing happens, not even powere to the keyboard or mouse. I am using a 400 watt power supply, pc 400 mobo, p4 1.6 processor. I tried clearing cmos and flashing bios, dowloading new drivers, nothing. I pop HIS card and insert old ATI and it fires right up no problems. Is there possibly a jumper have to be changed when you use a powered video card? Does anyone have any thoughts on this. I am ready to return the HIS card where I purchased it.
I'm surprised that you can get this car into the slot, since from all I can find, the HIS 2600 xt is a PCI-E card and not AGP.
In some cases, there is just a compatibility issue and since the MB manufacturers have moved to PCI-E from AGP, there are fewer options for new cards.
Take it back and see if oyu can find a different card that will work wiht oyur motherboard.
