    I have a pcchips a13G+ motherboard with a 350 watt power supply & 4 gig of ram.

  • frank_carole Feb 11, 2009

    The specs for the card say a 300 W supply is needed so I should be OK there.

    I did change the setting in the bios. I do have the latest drivers for both the motherboard and the video card. AS for not working right. The colors of the text in the bios screens are screwed up, as well as during the post. Instead of white text I get purple, yellow,etc. Then when windows boots it gets part way and I get a blue screen saying a serious error has been detected and windows has timed out while trying to reset the video card, then the computer shuts down.

    Tell me more about the problem with the 8500. Did you change the setting in the Bios to use the card instead of the onboard video? Did you get the latest drivers for the motherboard? Did you get the latest drivers for the video card? When you say it doesn't work properly, in what way?

It could be that the card is bad. If you can exchange it, I would and see if the replacement works.

If you have it in the proper pci express slot and it malfunctioning, it may be your power core unable to power the card. check your power supply to see if the wattage is enough to run this card.

Audio driver install failed

Try downloadign the driver and installing it again. PCChips is a rather cheep line of motherboard as I hve dealing with them. If that does not work consider installing a PCI sound card like soundblaster. I have had to do that a few times rather than replace a board.  The PCChips website reall does exist.See below: Good luck
