HELP!!!! Urgent Problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have a serious and confusing problem. I just installed my 9800 gx2 w/ a new 1010 watt OCZ GameXstream PSU. When I boot up now, I can hear windows starting up and programs starting up (such as skype etc) but I have no signal going to my monitor. Everything is plugged in tightly and the 9800 gx2 is lighting up all green with a blue led in the back and a green above it. I tried swapping out my old graphics card and when i rebooted, I had video again. What could be causing the 9800 gx2 to not display video?? I have absolutely no idea on this one. Could I need to install drivers first or something?

Did you uninstall your old drivers before tossing in the GX2?

No I did not uninstall my old drivers and I have tried both dvi ports. The card is also on my main pci-e slot. Do you think resetting CMOS will do anything?

Both power connectors hooked-up to the card?

Do you even get a signal before the windows boot, like the POST screens?

If so try booting into safe mod and uninstalling the drivers. if that didnt work put ur old card back in, boot into windows. use driver cleaner pro to uninstall the drivers, take out ur old card, put new card in, and try to get into windows.

omg, seriously. Resetting CMOS worked. I don't know how or why but it did. Well crisis averted. Phew!
