Asus STX Essence - Power problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a new mother board and some ram. I tried to install a sound card I used in another rig the Asus STX Essence but for the life of me I can not get it to work. I've been all over the net trying to find a solution.

My motherboard is the: GA-Z77X-UD5H and the card is firmly seated in a PCIe x1 slot
I've tried numerous different power cables and molex combinations

I remember this card making a low pop when it was initialized in the other computer and it does not do that here. It is like its not getting power. There are no indicator lights and moving the card slots has no impact on the result. No devices show up in device manager.

Any ideas?

If it's not doing the clicky thing then it's not getting power or isn't getting data from the motherboard. I know exactly what you mean.

Try going into the bios and seeing if the x1 slot is enabled. If it is then try moving the card to a different slot.
