Installed 6850, now won't boot

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well, I got myself a shiny new 6850 today, so of course I go to install it. However, I did forget to update the drivers before I did hte hardware installation. Regardless, did the hardware, and slapped up the new device to find that no signal is recognized in the monitors. Thinking it's a driver issue, I put the old video card back in, and now it won't boot.

It gets to the windows splash screen, and BSODs with a 0x7B error. Same happens in safe mode, and after a cmos reset.

I'm just wondering if theres anything else I can do, or did I fry something with the mobo/card?

Edit: I was able to get one monitor working through DVI in the 6850, but I still get hte same crashes, and when one is plugged in to HDMI/DP none of the cables produce output.

Just some assumptions:

1) Maybe you were running in AHCI mode for your hard drive.

2) Was your old card from Nvidia? Maybe a driver conflict?

3) You could try Windows Repair, but I highly doubt it would fix the problem.

1. Let me see about that.

2. No, It's been only radeon cards in this build ever since I put it together

3. Tried, and it fails. I'm burning another Win7 disk to see if that repairs it more than the built in console.

Also, I looked into seeing if I could boot the driver disc through safe mode CMD, but it also BSODs while loading the CLASSPNP.sys driver, which I'm guessing PNP=Plug and Play.

Is the card fully seated? Be sure to check the end closest to the front of the case.

I'm a dumbass. The issue was I had to move a couple HDs to fit the card, and it changed the boot order of the HDs, so it was loading from a HD that was migrated from a previous machine, trying to boot off that. Changed the boot order and now I'm in Windows installing drivers

Some times it takes 3 or 4 attempts at using windows"repair"before it finally fixes itself.

Edit,yeah that would probably help....lol we all do it just don't admit it,or get caught on an open forum...lol.Glad you have it fixed.

A mate of mine asked me to clean his pc, as one day a huge dust cloud came flying out of his PSU *cough cough* EWW..

anyway he has 2 drives and i forgot to put them back in after the clean up in the correct order, took us hours to figure out the problem.
