Huge video card woes.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have a PCChips P55g (I know) motherboard with a PCI-Express slot. I've tried two video cards now (6600GT and an 8600GT) and I get NO signal whatsoever with them. Not even just the motherboard stuff before windows loads. There's no option in the BIOS that appears to be what I need. I am running a true 450 watt power supply.

Any ideas? I really need a video card. I really don't want to hear that my motherboard just won't allow a video card...but thats what i'm fearing.

No bios option to disable onboard video?
Yes it's AMD.

The only BIOS option like that is something like "INIT DISPLAY" and I can choose PCI, PCI-E, or Onboard VGA. I've got it set to PCI-e. Other than that, the only way I can see to disable onboard video is through device manager.

Well, if it is in device manager, than it is running. There MUST be on option to disable. Poke around more in the "integrated peripherals" section of the BIOS.

I'm not seeing it. There's a "disable integrated audio" but no video.

Think I need to buy a new mobo?

check your pcie power connection, look to see if any of the pins backed out, or if you have another power connection swap it around.

make sure the card is getting power.

On the mobo or cable?

Because neither the 6600 nor the 8600 need external pcie power plugs. They both draw from the slot.

Flashed the new bios last night. Also did a clean install of all mobo and vista nvidia drivers. No dice. No voltage reading for slots, just CPU
