Gigabyte H55N graphics issue

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just scored a i550 and plopped it in a Giga H55N MiniITX board and love it. I plan on using this as an HTPC/File Server, but for now I'm using it as my main rig (sold my sig rig), and even though intel's integrated Graphics are surprisingly decent on the i3's, I need a bit more oomph. So I put an ASUS GTS450 DirectCU in, and can't seem to get it to boot using the dedicated graphics card?

It'll boot into windows (I can hear the windows boot tune) but I don't get any video. Put the card in a seperate rig to make sure the card works and it works just fine. Also tried a 9800GT and have the same issue.

I set the setting in BIOS to boot from PEG, and only use internal if no Ext Peg, and have tried plugging in via HDMI and VGA. I've triple checked to make sure the board is properly seated in the board, plugged in, and on and all checks out. Is there some other setting I'm missing?

DVI out on the mobo would activate the dedicated card? I haven't tried it but I'll give it a go.
