ASUS P6TD Deluxe + 9800GX2 won't display/boot

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I finally got all the parts for my new rig yesterday and assembly went pretty good. The only problem now is that it doesn't seem to want to boot up with the 9800GX2 installed.

I've made sure to connect the 24 pin ATX, 4/8 pin 12V, both the 6 and 8 pin PCI-E on the card, CPU FAN, and all that.

I tested with another card, I had lying around, the 7600 GT and it did work and boot into the BIOS/EZ-OS or whatever. Assuming that it works I swap it out for the 9800 and it doesn't display anything but appears to boot into the "EZ-OS" splash screen thing since the keyboard lights are up as if it were loaded. Am I doing something wrong here?

Another thing, the 9800 I got from a friend who didn't remember what condition the card was in. He said either it's artifacting or working fine. If it were artifacting it should still display but just have artifacts all over the screen right?

Any help is appreciated.

It could have degraded since he used it last. Dust and dirt could have got on the PCB and damaged it. Either that or your friend was wrong or your motherboard can't use the card in it's degraded condition.

I know for a fact he doesn't keep dead cards. Either it was artifacting and needed to be baked but he never got around to doing it, or it's working and was just swapped out for a "faster" single card solution (I think he swapped it out for a GTX470).

It was a beast of a card back in it's heyday and still a pretty good card now (considering you can still find them for around $100 used) so I'd like to keep it and have it working for maybe a year or so before I think about upgrading to a GTX600 or HD7000 card.
