Xfx Radeon hd 5770 graphics card
January 19, 2011 at 10:37:07
Specs: Windows 7
Ok, so this is the build.
Mobo - Gigabyte 790fxta-ud5
CPU - Phenom II x6 1035t
RAM - 2x2gb corsair dominator
PSU - Apevia warlock 1100W
HD - 32gb ssd, 1TB hdd
Video card - XFX radeon hd 5770 x2

So when I put everything together, i get one long beep and 3 short ones, which has video card written all over it. So my roommate tested both my 5770s in his rig and they both work. And I know there are no other issues since swapping the vid card for an Nvidia 9800 GTX make it run flawlessly. I've cleared the CMOS, and updated the bios, both to no avail. I've checked compatability issues on other forums and there are other people running very similar rigs. So the first person who can give me the info that makes this setup run, I'll send you 20$CAD via paypal.

I'd suspect the power supply, do you have another you can try? Apevia (formerly called Aspire) doesn't have the greatest rep plus they only offer a 1 yr warranty on their units. 1100W is extreme overkill for your system anyway. You could have gotten a decent 600W to 750W from Antec, Corsair, OCZ for between $50-75 that would have a 3-5 yr warranty (depending on the brand) & it would have been more than sufficient for your system.

Notice the total system power consumption under FULL LOAD when running 2x HD 5770 in Crossfire is only 400W:

Apevia isn't a good brand. Did u try single hd 5770?

The pci bus is not powering the card is it? Did you provide a power connector to the video card?

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Ok, I haven't tried a second psu, but I don't think that's the problem since it runs the nvidia card. The reason for it is to run a server eventually. I have tried a single card and the fan just spins at max, and the video beep code comes out again.

You've got 4 gig of system ram? Doesn't seem like it would be a problem with that setup but temporarily remove one of the ram sticks and try it again.

I am thinking a problem with one of the pci-e slots.
