Huge video card woes. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
last option is to try the card in a friends machine.
if the card is bad it will not work.
if the card works, you may need a new mother board.
my new system.

Hook up your card, plug it into the monitor. Make sure power is off, clear bios, restart. Video is usually suppose to auto detect. If that doesn't work for either card, I guess you should make sure the PSU 6pin? line to the video card is working. I'm not sure if the 6600gt has one but I imagine it would, as well as the 8600.

Done -- nothing. No power lines to either card -- only the AGP version of the 6600GT needs extra power, and the 8600GT does not either.
