Installing Windows 7 with no graphics drivers

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So my problems that i don't deal with software, which happens to be obvious why i ask upon OCN

I have a brand new computer running a 6100 FX core on a Crosshair V Formula Motherboard.
the motherboard doesn't have integrated graphics so i am using a GTS 450 card.
The one problem i'm having is that i can't get the screen to output anything, i know i need drivers, yet i don't have and OS and to install the OS i need the GUI.

In short how do i get my graphics card to produce a signal so i can install windows 7 or at least access the BIOS?

So are you saying you booted and the graphicscard will not show a picture? Because if you don't have the drivers installed then the screen resolution is just wrong and the memory is only a few megabytes but you should have a picture.

Then either your card, psu or pcie slot is broken. Do you hear a boot beep?

Like I said, is there any special beep code at boot?

 

Just because the mobo is new doesn't mean that it can't be broken. I've only had crap sold to me by Asus including mobos with broken pcie slots.

 

What is the exact model of your psu? You only say it's 500w which doesn't mean much.

Are you using an HDMI connection during the installation? If you are switch to DB-9 or DVI.
