Question about Computers & Internet
this is my video card
here is my psu
And here is my problem, I install the video card, everything powers up, including the video card, the fan comes on, the HDD and cpu fans kick on. Mouse and Keyboard never power up, so i'm not sure if the comp is locking up on the bios screen, or what? but, the monitor stays blank, the light never changes, just stays in "sleep" mode. I have tried 2 different monitors and 2 different computers. Also I am using a 512 pci-e video card now and everythings works just fine when I reequip this video card. Main concern is "Is this video card compatible, if so, then my assumption of a faulty card is correct", Unless someone has any other advice that I am completely open to, and/or suggestions. This is my motherboard info.
