my new computer came in today. here are the specs:
i7 2600k
msi p67a-gd65
palit gtx 570
8gb g.skill ripjaws cl7
corsair h70
xfx black edition 850w
1tb samsung spinpoint
antec lanboy air

i built the computer and loaded windows 7 pro retail. when starting up, the computer would freeze at the "starting windows" screen. i called microsoft technical support, and the person told me the problem was an incompatibility between my graphics card and the motherboard.
can anyone offer help? has anyone been able to run a gtx 570 on a gd65? will updating the bios help?

thanks.

umm just from the looks of it you might need to intall the driver for the video card. It might be that the gtx570 is too advance for a first start up, so mabey try putting a ****ty card that works for the time being then getting into windows and intalling all the drives for the gtx and then put the gtx back into the computer see if that works

i was able to install the drivers in safe mode. the computer still wouldn't work with the drivers. i have a gts 210, and could try again with it.

the geforce 210 works. i am downloading the drivers now. i checked the msi test report:

the 570 is not listed on the list. will updating the bios make the 570 work? or will i have to get a new mobo?

Hmm...i'm having the same exact issues with my 570. I just updated the BIOS to the latest ones from MSI but that didn't help. Anything else you might be able to suggest?

I've read about some guy replacing his 570 with an older GPU he had lying around, installing those drivers, reinstalling his 570, then installing the 570 drivers, and having success with that. Is that pretty much what you did with your 210? If it is, perhaps it'll be worth trying...
