Is it my GPU or PSU? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I know this sounds pretty obvious but did you make sure that switch on the power supply was set to the right amount of power draw (forgot what it was called....)

I tried following EVGA's tutorial but the program they recommend stops halfway through, and I tried using the HP utility but it doesnt give me a bootable device.
When you use the HP utility, are you also using Windows 95/98 DOS system files? If not, download them from here:

http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=196

Once you have the file, unzip it anywhere. Open the HP utility again, make sure the file system is set to FAT32, put a check box next to "Create a DOS startup disk", find the location of the Win 98 files you just unzipped, and click Start. Once that completes, copy the BIOS file(s) you need onto your USB drive.

If this does not work for you, I am attaching a zip file of the utility I use, which is very similar to the HP one, and you can just redo the steps above. For some reason, I didn't have any luck with HP's program either, but this one works flawlessly every time for me.
