Specs: Windows Vista 32 bit, AMD Athlon x4 2.8GHz
hi, i have a new PNY Nvidia GeForce GTX 470
with 1280MB GDRR3 RAM. i installed both the
Drivers and the card itself. i know i have
enough power, and CPU can handle it. i have
enough ram (4GB DDR2). i installed the drivers
but the only output that works is the default
VGA output that is on the motherboard. the
outputs on the card itself dont work. its
plugged in, the pc detects the card. the drivers
work and detect it. its just that my Mini HDMI
to HDMI and my DVI to HDMI dont work. my
monitor supports VGA and HDMI, and my graphics card supports 2 DVI and 1 Mini monitor is a Samsung 32" HDTV 1080p. res @ 1920x1080.

"i know i have enough power"

Prove it. What are manufacturer, model, and specs of your power supply.

We'll answer everything here. No one is gonna email you or contact you on youtube.

As Skip said, no one will be contacting you directly.

You need to list the system specs, especially the motherboard & power supply. I assume your board has integrated graphics. The integrated has to be disabled in the BIOS for the card to work in Windows, but either (integrated OR card) should work to display the POST screen. If you're not able to view the POST screen with the card, the card has a problem. Make sure it's fully seated in the PCIe slot & that you have both 6-pin PCIe plugs connected to the card. The GTX 470 is a fairly power hungry card, especially under load.

Here's the PSU requirement from the PNY site:

"Minimum 550W or greater system power supply (with a minimum 12V current rating of 38A)****"
