Huge VGA problems. Help please!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Sorry for the rant and poor spelling/grammar.

Well its kind of a long story so here goes:

I picked up a Asus EN8800gtx for my 3.2 p4, it was a ****ty system and their was alot of bottleneck. So i wanted to try it on Vista instead of my current XP so i installed 32 bit vista. Did drive cleaner pro, all that jazz installed the latest nvidia drivers and rebooted. As soon as i did the reboot i could hear my system rebooting but at that point i lost all visuals. It appears the VGA just stopped working could'nt see vista loading, couldn't see the bios, pretty much it was like i had no VGA whatsoever. Ok w.e my system was **** and bottlenecking like a mofo. So I went out picked up a new mobo, cpu, ram. Kept my psu and my Hard drive. Before i continue heres my current specs


CPU: Core 2 duo E6600 2.4ghz
PSU: OZC 700W
Mobo: EVGA 680i SLI SE
Ram: 4gb Corsair DDR2 Dual Channel PC6400 (800mhz)
VGA: Asus EN8800 GTX

So after installing the motherboard, cpu, ram, and vga into my old case. Hooked it all up, (even my old hard-drive which is not formatted, still has vista and the drivers i installed, wanted to format but couldn't in my old computer because of the vga problem i explained) So I turn my new build on. And the same **** happens. Acts like theres no VGA what so ever. I've tried:

-putting 8800 in different pci-e slots
-3 different vga's
-different ram
-cmos reset on mobo
-different monitors, crt,

My comp still acts like theres no vga so i cant see anything. I know the 8800 works fine ive tried it on other rigs and have had it work. What i think it was is somethign to do with this vista install and drivers, i have lurking on my mobo, but ive tried booting with no hard drive, just to see if i'd see the message no boot device, but still can't see anything. Now i'd call defect on the mobo, but i took my old thermaltake psu, asus mobo, p4 cpu hooked it up to a monitor, tried 3 vgas on my old mobo, same problem as before and same problem im having on my new setup.

I dont know this sounds really dumb but is it possible the first time i tried to start my new rig with my old hard drive attached somehow some of the nerfed **** on it screwed up my new rig??

I have no idea, its frusterating having a problem going up dropping mega cash pretty much building a new system and having the same stupid ass problem as the old **** when the only thing from the old was my old Hard drive. Makes me want to play wrist violin.

PS: If anyones advise actually helps me fix this and get my **** working i'll paypal you $20

The BIOS doesn't show on boot?

Sounds like either not enough power as terraprime is asking about... or it just died.

Is it possible the motherboard is grounding out somewhere in the case? Try setting the motherboard up outside the case with only 1 memory stick, the CPU and HS/fan, and the video card. Also check the manual and double check all the power connections.

Well thanks for the help everyone, just got this solved an hour ago. Took it in to the tigerdirect retail outlet i got it at, so guys could do some tests, apprently the mobo wasn't cycling. So they said defect in the board, i got a new one Im formatting now. Putting XP on, untill i can pick up 64-Bit Vista down the road when crysis comes out. Hope everything else in my new system holds up.

if it was a defective board, then why didnt it work on your old mobo?

edit- or did you mean the 8800 was defective?

It was the 680i SLI SE (mobo) that was defective, got a new one works great now. Actually posting from my rig now! Good question why VGA's stopped working on my old mobo, going to have to look at it.
