GTX 460 Issues!! - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
Well, I just figured out where the problem is... I use a 37" flatscreen for my monitor. After installing the drivers it doesn't work anymore, I plugged in my old 15" and it works fine.

Any suggestions how to get it working on the big screen? 15" just wont do!!

Ok, got it working... sort of.

It works on the flat screen if I unplug the video cable and replug it again. Ugh... I don't want to have to do this everytime I use the PC. Let me know if anyone knows of a fix for this.

maybe the cable is faulty or the monitor port is faulty...check with a different cable and report.....

Same issue with a different cable. I doubt it's the monitor port, I haven't had any issues until trying to use this card. It seems as though it works if I just use the power button on/off cycle on the TV.

The box for the card recommends 24A on the 12V rail so I think I'm going to keep the XFX PSU. I'm sure I'll end up needing it down the road. Besides, I think this setup would work for SLI if I decide to go that route later on.

The BIOS flash screen tells me I'm running PCIe x1. How would I check if it's running at x1 or x16?

Google Fermi welcome screen freeze/problems. You will most likely have to RMA the card. Your PSU is plenty for that setup. You could try another one, but that is a common issue with the 4xx series and 90% of people cannot fix it with the available suggestions.

Read up next time you buy hardware. It's one of the main complaints with those cards. It's possible it's the PSU, but don't be shocked if it's not.

run a graphics intensive app like kombustor and then start gpu-z it would be written if its running at 1x(which i highly doubt) or 16x......

This.

I've been having non stop issues with my 460 since I got it early last fall. It's been nothing but a pain in the *** but I don't have the funds to replace it with an ATI card yet.

The best way to fix it for me (temporarily at least) seems to be sweeping the drivers, unplugging the card and placing it in the other slot. Then install the drivers over again and hope it works. Also, if your bios allows you to increase the PCI-Express payload then put it up to 4096. A different power supply isn't the issue, many people have bought them and no change in the problem.

Look at that thread for possible fixes for the issue/ an idea on how bad the problem with the 4xx cards is.
