9800gt driver issues

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a brand new 9800gt that I'm trying to get working on a fresh install of XP Pro. I can't seem to get either of the drivers that come on the CD it came with to work nor some Omega drivers I found. What's wrong?

Alright...
I pulled out the 9800gt and restarted computer, changing the bios to use onboard video card. then i disabled the onboard video card, turned off computer, and put the 9800gt back in and booted it up. i installed the new 180.48 drivers, rebooted, changed bios to read PCI-E card and i get 800x600 with 4px color depth. I've also tried the 2 drivers that came with the card and Omega drivers that I downloaded from the internet.

any help?

what are the amps on the 12V rail on your power supply.
and what does the card ask for your power supply to have.
my new system.

o.O you said you have 450w with 20A right can you give more specifics of the PSU... did you do a clean install of the drivers? did you clear your cmos when you installed the video card?
