Hah alright now the comp is not booting up! =[

Alright just for my bros sake i restored the onboard drivers just so he can use it for temp use.. uninstalled the old drivers for the other 2 graphics cards and set up the default setting for everything computer was running great all night booted up and shut down 3 times with no problems. This morning b4 i got up donno what exactly what happend but now the pc will boot but no responce from the HD(nothing) nor the monitor(yellow light) and i can boot it down by holding down the power buttion. when i booted it down just to make sure its not anything that i can see wires loose or what not.. unpulgging the power cable from the tower checked a few things nothing seemed to be wrong at all, same set up. now when i go to plug back in the power cable it boots itself up everytime after. The prossesor fan running at a high RPM the whole time.
now im thinking the problem might actully be the motherboard.
if i can get any feed back this would be great! thanks again sorry didnt get a chance to try what u suggested =\ from the last post!

I think that you should get someone local to help you through this - unless you are confident that you can do it yourself.

I suspect that you may be right about the motherboard.

Did you take all precautions as regards static electricity when working inside the case?

But before replacing the motherboard - try the hard drive in another computer and another computer's hard drive in this one. I say this because you said there was nothing from the hard drive and they do fail occasionally.

Obviously if the HD works in another computer then it is the motherboard and vice versa if another HD works in your computer. This will allow you to identify which component is faulty. I still think you are right about the MB though.

Hope you haven't thrown away those Video Cards! They might both be good.

Good luck.

If the PC boots without the video card, then it has an onboard card. Try checking BIOS and make sure display is set to onboard card. It is a good chance the drivers are already loaded. Even if they are not you should default display settings, Like 256 colors and 800x600 resolution.

Can't install drivers for GeForce GT 430. "Graphics Adapter Not Found."


I am assuming that your PC is working alright connected to the onboard graphics port.
Make sure any supplementary power connectors to your video card are in place, and the card is firmly inserted into the PCIE slot.
If you try these two items with no results, you might try installing the card in a known working PC. It could be a problem with the card itself.

Well i tried everything my training and practice can think of to get this fixed and im at a brick wall wonder if u can help see i just formatted my comp into windows 7 and with my hd-465x-zpf2 video card...


Bad or conflicting drivers. First go in the BIOS and disable the onboard card. Then boot into Safe mode and uninstall all the ATI drivers you can find in Device Manager then reboot normally. Finally install the newest driver from here

Acutely, my comp (AMD Phenom II X3 2.8 Ghz in Gigabyte MA790FX-UD5P, with ASUS EAH4890 TOP) won't even boot to POST, noticing 3/4 red lights on GPU by power cables. Any thoughts?

This is the card as sold by Newegg. The general concensus is that it takes 850w power supply to run this puppy, and it has been known to burn a PSU. The board is a good one however, I'm surprised that with AMD chipsets, it has no onboard graphics.If your not getting any beep codes or anything. I would first try to remove card and boot and see what happens. If you can start in safe mode you can check your device manager, etc.

Cant boot up compy with new graphics card to reinstall drivers


if you have an older graphic card swap it out with the new or if u have onboard video use it as your video. Once you boot up uninstall the nvidia drivers and turn off pc. Now reinstall the new card and install the drivers from the CD or the new ones from the nvidia site. Dont use the windows device manager.

Monitor goes black after windows boots up


Try removing the video card, and look up your motherboard / system manual on dell's website on how to manually reset the bios.

1. Remove video card
2. Reset BIOS (physically opening the computer and using a special jumper and/or removing the battery...what ever the manufacturer says to do to reset the BIOS).
3. After BIOS is reset, try booting up via your onboard video card first. Once you get that working, go into the bios settings and make sure it is set to boot the onboard only for right now and then you can make sure the ATI software is fully uninstalled when you get into windows.
4. Reinstall the ATI card and boot up with the video still connected to the onboard card. See if it will let you install the driver.

The trick here is to reset the bios and get the system booting off the onboard card if at all possible. If that works, then you can always reinstall drivers and then tweak the bios to boot off the AGP card instead of the onboard.
