Question about ASUS P5GD1-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Installed GeForce 8500 GT PCI-E video card and pc will not turn on

I purchased an AXLE GeForce 8500GT PCI Express 512 MB video card for my PC. Motherboard is an ASUS P5GD1-VM. The PSU is 430W

After installing the card in the PCI Express 16 slot the PC does not turn on. With the card removed everything is fine.

I have tried removing other cards and power from hard drives etc with no success.

Are there known issues with this combination.

    The problem I have is that the system will not start at all with the new card in. It simply does not power up.

If your mboard has a builtin video card you should configure that b4 u can use that add on card.

1. connect the add on card.
2. connect the monitor to the built in VGA.
3. start system and press "F2 or Delete" to go to bios setup.
4. on bios setup " refer to the manual on installing addon PCI express card".
you find it here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us.

or enlosed in the board.

After configuring your system restart and unplug in the wall outlet and then connect the monitor in the add on card.


Hope you find in order.

I'm having a problem with my new graphics card


camocrazy:
-Make sure that the video card is properly seated. and you have installed all the latest drivers and patches of this card from?
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_163.75.html
try to play games now and if the problem still exist then do:

-At this stage I would recommend just to blame the card's software (drivers) uninstall all drivers and software partinent to this video card. Restart the machine and play the game for a while, see if your monitor crashes. If still does crashes then its the OS.

-Simply uninstall the graphics card from the PC and check if the perfomance of games effect your video. If it still does effect then there is a problem with OS.

Finally I would suggest to simply install the card install the latest patches and drivers from the website of the manufacturer and restart your machine if it works then we can blame faulty driver and software.
-Also please check the manufacturers website of any known issues with this particular card with Vista.

Hope that helped!
