I just bought a new graphics card (stated in the title) and with my 600w PSU it doesn't show anything on my display even though in plugged the monitor into the card. I checked that i have enough power and i should. I investigated my system without the card installed and i have some Intel graphics driver but apparently it turns off when a video card is installed and also tried looking into the bios and i just messed that up and had to reset it.
i really don't understand a friend of mine has the same card with lower specs and his works and sending it for repair that told me my card passed all the tests.
I cant see any display through either the motherboard or the graphics card. I have to remove the card to enter the bois screen. Which doesn't really help. And i have installed it through those steps because i did not have another graphics card installed. My CPU has onboard graphics.
That video card is fairly high end not to mention expensive, it requires two 6-pin PCIe plugs connected to it so you should have a heck of a good power supply if for nothing more than to protect your investment. 600W doesn't tell us anything about the quality of the unit you have. What's the make/model/model number of your PSU & what are the amperage specs on the +3.3v, +5v & +12v rails?
Its a power station 600w ATX modular power supply with 80+ certification. AC INPUT +5V - 25A WITH +3.3V - 25A TO MAKE 150W AC INPUT +12V1 - 25A WITH +12V2 - 25A TO MAKE 504W AC INPUT -12V - 0.3A TO MAKE 3.6W AC INPUT +5VS - 2.5A TO MAKE 12.5W sorry i cannot lay it out better. this is the link for it if im correct: http://m.novatech.co.uk/products/co... it has the right 6 pin pci-E cables 2 of them.
Okay i shall have a go at this, may take sometime as i am only in part time work so earning for a decent power supply will be tough, but hopefully not to long. Would you class £70 ish a decent PSU or are we looking at higher prices :/
