Just installed my second 670 FTW. I'm still getting A2 and AE error codes during boot. Thoughts? *FIXED* - Page 2

Well the next thing I would do is put in both cards, have your monitor hoked up to your 560, and see if your 670 is even recognized in windows. Have the power to both hooked up.

Okay, I did as you recommended and entered Device Manager.

670 FTW 4GB
Standard VGA Graphics Adapter Properties
Device Status: This device cannot start. (Code 10)

560ti
Standard VGA Graphics Adapter Properties
Device Status: This device is working properly.

Strange. Honestly, I didn't even expect my PC to boot with that 670 installed. Using your suggestion, it's not even recognized by the PC right now. Surely I didn't get TWO bricked 670s in a row?

If you have the serial number of the first card written somewhere compare it to your second card. Maybe it's the same batch. To make sure that it's defective, check it at your friend's asap.

Holy crap, I just had a really important update.

Okay, so while I had both cards plugged in, I decided to go ahead and install the new drivers. Lo and behold, after installation, I checked out Device Manager and saw the 560ti listed AND the 670. I powered off the computer, unplugged the 560ti and powered her back up. I GOT THROUGH THE BIOS. It was glorious. However, when I would usually see the "Starting WIndows" screen, I saw black. I heard Windows boot up and could tell my computer was sitting at the desktop by looking at the temperatures. But the screen was still black.

Hmm. Let's try a restart, I thought. Now I'm looking at the P67 FTW logo once again, with error AE.

Dude, I am SO close. I was actually on my desktop with the new card. Suggestions?

Well, I would then right click in device manager and i think there is an update drivers option. Actually try everything, update drivers, disable, re enable, there is an option to uninstall and try reinstalling it (all this in the device manager). Everything does appear to point to a bad card though, if you did have another comp that would be a definitive test. Maybe even if you have a computer store close by that could just pop it in and check to see if they get the same problem that you do.


*Just saw your update, so does that mean you are not getting that code 10 on the 670 in the device manager? While you had both plugged and if both were recognized in I was going to ask you to try switch the monitor connection to the 670 to see if you get video.

Okay, so I plugged both of them back in and I'm back in Windows. Yes, the Code 10 is gone from Device Manager. When I unplug my monitor from the 560ti and plug it into the 670, I see this small version of my wallpaper on the screen without any icons or taskbar. It looks like something you would have on a second monitor.

Seems like they are incompatible. Since they are both from EVGA, and you have opened a support ticket with them, inform them about it fast. As long as they confirm that their P67 board with the same 670 FTW has problems they should come up with a solution. Otherwise, return the card and get something else.

I am pretty sure that a card of reference design from EVGA will do just fine. It seems that there are way too many incompatibility issues with non-reference Kepler cards lately...

Hmm. I feel like I just need to tell my computer to get its primary monitor input from the 670, rather than the 560ti. When I try plugging in the 670, I can move the mouse around the screen (the one with the small wallpaper). It's possible that my comp won't start without the 560ti because it has assigned the 560ti as the primary GPU. Or something.

Did you try to clear CMOS yet?

I did that a few weeks ago with the old card but I wasn't this far along. I just tried something. Holy smokes, I'm so close.

I booted up with both cards in with the monitor plugged into the 560ti. I disabled the 560ti in Device Manager and plugged the monitor into the 670. It worked! However, when I tried a restart, the screen went black again. My computer keeps trying to start up while plugged into the 560ti. It defaults to that particular card for primary display.

Do you think hitting the CMOS button again could fix it?

Clear CMOS should clear that "preference." Not guaranteed to work, but worth trying.
