Problem with Gigabyte Motherboard..Please help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently updated by system (specs below) and I am having problems with the motherboard. The only components I upgraded were the CPU, mobo, and RAM.

Old System:
CPU: Intel Pentium D 930
RAM: 2GB DDR2
MOBO: ECS 945P-A
GPU: ATI Radeon x1900xt
HDD: WD Raptor 74GB
PSU: 550W OCZ

New System:
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 945
RAM: 4GB DDR3
MOBO: Gigabyte 770TA-UD3
GPU: ATI Radeon x1900xt
HDD: WD Raptor 74GB
PSU: 550W OCZ

The new system doesn't even POST. It gives me a video error so I know its something to do with my video card. I tried my video card in my old motherboard and in my friends computer. It worked in both. Therefore, I thought the PCI-E slot was broken, but the system booted and loaded OS with an x800 and an HD 4870. This tells me that none of the parts are defective and my psu is strong enough for the new system. For some reason, the x1900xt seems to be the only card that doesn't work with the new system.

Can anyone tell me what the problem could be?

EDIT: The conclusion I came to after all this is that my video card is, somehow, incompatible with the motherboard. Does that make sense?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by external power connector, but there is another 8-pin power slot in addition to the 24-pin one. I have connected power to both slots.

The X1900 shouldn't have any compatibility issues with the board. Especially since the X800 works without any issues. Perhaps you can try flashing the BIOS to the newest revision, or if already on the newest revision, just reflash to that. There should be an option in the advanced section of the BIOS. One of the last options will reference which display device to boot. Make sure that its set to PEG not PCI.
