MSI R6950 wont display?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
So I just put in my MSI Frozo R6950 and it wont post. I have restarted fresh install of W7 64 ult. With sig rig. I have tried DVI and HDMI slots and nothing. So I am not sure what is going on. But I booted up with my old school 8400gt and took this pic. Same rig works fine with 6870.

I install drivers and the Screen goes black.
Not sure what to do at this point any help would be awesome.

From what I see I am assuming that it is bios related since it seems to be in gibberish.


UPDATE:

EVERYTHING IS WORKING!!!!
I had to use Beta drivers from AMD but it seems to be running fine. I will let everyone know by the end of the day how things are going. Thank you everyone that helped and gave me ideas. And SGTHOP!! Amazing seller everyone. If he has something you need. Use him!!

Yeah, this makes little sense to me. When I shipped it, it worked perfectly fine. I stress tested it before listing it again.

It says its on PCIe 1.1 4x though? Is that right?

Also, have you tried resetting the BIOS?

Not sure how to reset bios. I took the battery out of motherboard and reset it that way. Not sure about the actual card though.

Not on the card, just the board's settings. If so, did you disable the onboard if it has it?

Yeah, no idea. Should be working. No reason for it to fail.

I'd re-flash the card, what your picture seems to be pointing to is a modified bios. AMD cards usually restrict bios modification and will force it to not post if you modify the bios (This happened to me on my 6950 when I tried to boost my vram voltage). My guess is that someone loaded a 6970 bios onto it or something similar and its having trouble being recognized on your system.

The bios could also just be corrupt which just means you need to re-flash it with the stock bios. thumb.gif

Nope. Not unless he tried it. I got it from RMA, put it in a system, stress tested it for 10 minutes, turned it off and put it in the thread. It hasn't been flashed to anything else.
