Question about Computers & Internet
Just built myself a new computer spec as follows:
Abit IN9 32X-MAX
2 gig OCZ ram
Quad core Q6600
Inno3d Geforce 9600 GT Over Clocked
Antec 800W PSU
Here is my problem: My computer works fine, infact i'm using it now to type this thread however the problem is I'm having to use my old PNY 256mb GFX card as I get no signal with my new one.
I know my card works as I've tried it in other machines.. What I've done so far:
Updated the BIOS to latest version
Tried card in PCIe slot 1.. No video signal.. Monitor light remains amber
Tried card in PCIe slot 2.. It works! and can get to bios
Tried card in PCIe slot 3.. It works! and can get to bios
ATX power from PSU is plugged in
ATX 12v power from PSU is plugged in
Tried different memory and just 1 gig
I've ran power from the 6 pins located at back of Video card direct to PSU
When the card is in slot 2 or 3 when booting the machine it tells me to move it back to slot 1.. However When I put my old PNY 256mb card into PCIe slot 1 it works fine with no problems.. I'm now at a point where I've had to make a decision!
decision..1 ask for help as I have no more hair left to pull out
decision..2 Throw it out the window and drop my weights on it
However I don't want to do decision 2 just "YET" but I am very close!
Any help on this would be great
Have you checked how the BIOS is setup to recognize the added video card? You may have to change a setting in there. It could be that it thinks the old card is still there or you may need to uninstall the old cards drivers and then install the new cards drivers after reboot.
