Perc 5i Problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I cannot seem to get my new 5i to work, I have tested in another computer (that had a 6i) and it was working fine. This one no matter what I try, will not post (no beeps or anything) nor display video.

Motherboard: msi 870a-g54
Video card: Saphire 5570

I have tried every arrangement of pcie slots moving the video card and raid card around, to no avail.

Any ideas?

EDIT: Neither the 6i or the 5i works

Try the pin mod explained in the sticky. You have to cover pins 5 & 6 (on ONE side only) with nail varnish to disable the SMBus signalling.

Or just put electrical tape on....

This is only on intel chipsets however. Note that the percs are VERY VERY VERY picky on what motherboard you use. It's more than likely due to the motherboard's bios. This is why i spent $214.5 on an areca 1220 and not a perc. I don't want to worry about what motherboard it supports.

Besides, it's not meant for non server stuff, it's proprietary to a point .
