Not off to a good start

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Received my 7950 today and installed it, and my computer gets power but my motherboard won't do its normal silly MSI bootup tunes. I recently got rid of my GTX 460, then GTX 660, now this won't boot. I don't get why not I didn't think it was hungry enough to make my HX620 unable to boot. Any ideas?

The mobo still boots with the onboard sandybridge graphics, I'm guessing PSU can't handle it? Seems surprising.

The 7950 isn't power hungry as to make problems for a HX620.

My guess is that your board might need a BIOS update, as version 12.3 for your board "enhanced PCI-E display card performance".

Either that, or perhaps you need to manually set your BIOS' PCIe setting to Gen2.

Boot up with the card installed but with the primary monitor hooked up to the onboard video. Once in windows check device manager to see if the card is detected. If no, then there is likely a hardware problem. If it is detected, install the latest driver and restart. Go into the bios and change the video settings to make pci e primary display adapter. Shutdown and connect the monitor to the 7950 and restart. Report back.

Can't if the card is plugged in then the computer will not boot. The fans and such will go on and thats about it.
I will update the bios and see what happens but I doubt we'll make much progress.

Do you have another video card you can put in?

Yeah it was plugged in, but to get the computer to start it had to not be. Regardless the BIOS update actually got my video going yaaaaaaay.

How do I setup fan profiles? Catalyst control center is still a damn maze

Try using MSI Afterburner. You can setup custom fan profiles and overclock without using CCC.
