Specs: Windows 8, Intel Core 2 Duo
So I have a ASUS GT 440 That I wish to Put in a ASUS PSKPL-AM Motherboard... I Was Upgrading from a EVGA GT 220 Which Still Works Fine... I First Uninstalled All Graphic Drivers for the 220 and Then Took It Out and Put In the 440 But when I Turn the Computer On I can Only get Video From the Motherboard Graphics and The Computer doesn't Say that there is new Hardware but the Fan on the 440 Comes on... I'm Stumped, Pleases Help if you can

Your PCIe 16 slot is version 1.1. Your 220 is PCIe 2.0. The 440 is PCIe 2.0. So it should work.

The card can pull up to 75W. What size is your power supply?

Make sure the card is fully seated.

Did you connect the monitor to the newer card using no adapters?

Hopefully you got the card with GDDR5, not GDDR3.

"I First Uninstalled All Graphic Drivers for the 220"

Unnecessary, both cards use the same drivers. And please don't capitalize the 1st letter of all the major words, it's also unnecessary (& annoying).

"when I Turn the Computer On I can Only get Video From the Motherboard Graphics"

What happens when the monitor cable is attached to the card, do you get any display at all? The ASUS splash screen or POST screen? Did you make any changes to the BIOS such as disabling the onboard video? "Initiate Graphic Adapter" needs to be set to PEG/IGD & "Internal Graphics mode" needs to be set to disabled.

Below are your board specs, what is the wattage of your power supply? Are you sure the card is fully seated in it's slot? Did you remove it & install it again just to be sure? Did you put the 220 back in again to confirm it still works?

"The card can pull up to 75W. What size is your power supply?"

That is the one thing I'm not sure about, I would think that the 220 takes close to the same amount of power as the 440 would. But I don't have the casing for the power supply that would tell my the wattage, I made this PC out of plexiglass so my class would see what the inside of a computer looks like so I dismantled a few things to make it look better. (This computer was only built for a flight simulator for teaching 7th and 8th graders how to fly a plane.)

"Make sure the card is fully seated. "

The first thing I checked.

"Did you connect the monitor to the newer card using no adapters?"

Nope, no adaptors, I've tried the VGA cord and the DVI cord.

"Hopefully you got the card with GDDR5, not GDDR3."

Yes it's the GDDR5

"What happens when the monitor cable is attached to the card, do you get any display at all? The ASUS splash screen or POST screen? "

All the moniters I've tried say "No Signal" or "No Input".

"Did you make any changes to the BIOS such as disabling the onboard video?"

I mess around In the BIOS a lot for expermentation but I Set BIOS to defalts

"'Initiate Graphic Adapter" needs to be set to PEG/IGD & "Internal Graphics mode" needs to be set to disabled."

I cannot find this or anything like this in the BIOS.

"Did you remove it & install it again just to be sure? Did you put the 220 back in again to confirm it still works?"

My third rule of computers:
If it dosen't work, take it out, try agin. If it still dosen't work, restore it to how it was.

Yes the 220 still works.

So, the power supply has no case with a label?

"Yes, I don't have the case with the label"

Are you saying you removed the metal shell from the power supply & have all the electronics exposed? Like THIS? It's kind of important to keep it closed for both safety & cooling purposes.

It's Dead, I ended up trying it in my dad's computer that has a gigabyte GT 650ti (I think) and it did'nt work, Oh Well. Thanks for your Help anyways... And yes riider like that, Yes I know it is a safety issue to have the case off of it but I always cut the power 5 minutes before I open the case and I have quite a few fans for cooling and a lot of heat sinks.

The capacitors in the PSU can hold a charge for a very long time and can harm or even kill. It is dangerous to leave the wiring exposed.

I know, I do have it enclosed in a separate part of plexiglass case but when I take the lid off the top of the case then the top of the power supply is exposed, I'm not a beginner in electronics, I do have a Ham Radio license (KF7ZFK) I know that the large capacitors in the PSU can hold a charge for quite some time. Also I do fix my friends computers all the time. I don't wish to be rude but I do wish to point out that safety Is my first priority and I am not like some people on some forms that are just stupid.
