OK, got the new power supply, put it in, no dice. Now what. Here is what I wrote on the ASUS forums to see if they had any ideas

---------------
heres the deal. All drivers up to date. Latest BIOS revision. When I use an X300 ATI card computer starts up great, no problem. When I put in XFX 7800GTX, the motherboard either doesnt recognize it, or doesnt put any video through it. I can hear windows start up normally, its just there is literally no video. The monitor stays on stand by. I dont even get a post screen or anything. I might as well have the monitor unplugged for as much as it shows. No beeps, because windows obviously starts up normally( I can hear the startup music is what I mean) . Video card has been tested and is good, so I am thinking that the slot just wont detect that the card is there for the 7800. I really need help since I have been trying to get this to work since November, have RMA'ed the card 3 times, taken the whole computer to a shop at least twice, and replaced the power supply.

This is how my mobo works....

With 20 Pin Power Connector...




With 24 Pin Power Connector...



Currently i'm using a 20 pin power supply connector. If i take off the Alt 4 pin connector Bios gives me an early warning

BTW what is the use from this extra 4 pin connector? (Is it for PCI-E or for case fans?)

Ok, heres what I have plugged in right now. The 24 pin connector on the right side of the board. The 8-pin power connector to the left of the CPU. The only other one I could plug in is EZPLUG, but thats for SLI only, and doesnt make a difference as I have tried it that way, so I left it unplugged.


So the top right 8 pin and the bottom middle 24 pin connecters are plugged in in this picture.

Yep, I think this is the same thing...(It's from a ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Review)

ASUS EZ-Plug, an additional 4-pin power molex to provide a stable power supply
to the motherboard during SLI operation with a warning LED indicator too.

Im halfway tempted to just ask for a refund exchange for something different from XFX, meaning different model like a gt or something, just to see if thats the problem... lol I'd be willing to take 2 7800 GT's in exchange for the GTX for all of my time and trouble this has caused me, but thats just me dreaming....

Welp, the problem is so bad that XFX had me email my system specs to them, and they are actually having NVIDIA build a copy of my system. They should know something by next week. Wish for the best.
