ATi Radeon Sapphire 4850 x2 pc shutdown problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently swapped my geforce 9600 gso 768mb gpu for a ATi Radeon Sapphire 4850 x2, and since changing the card im experiencing my pc is booting up then after 3 to 4 mins it reboots again and the displays go blank but the pc stays on..?
Ive cleaned the gpu and also applied new thermal paste to the heatsink and still no joy!!! I Ive also noticed that one of my led fans will cut out after the initial 1st boot before resetting! the gpu is fully powered up and all fans work on it {connected both 2x4 pin molex and 2x3 pin molex] green light on gpu..

the reason why i got the new gpu is so i could use its capability for the x4 dvi outs as im using quad view at present!

this pc is used mostly for music production and was fine until this recent hardware change...frown.gif

The bios on my mb has not been updated since i got the board. could this be the problem or can anyone help me?

Could be psu problem, try unplugging all the case fans, pci soundcard and other unnecessary things that use power. If the 4850x2 runs then your psu cant handle the power needed.
