I recently received a gigabyte HD 7950 as a gift and upgraded my system. I cannot get it to POST with the card hooked up.
Asrock 880g pro3 mobo
OCZ 550w modular PSU.
With the 6+2 and 8 pin power cords plugged in, I get a Dr. Debug error of 0x97 (console output devices connect). I have tried updating the UEFI BIOS to latest version(1.4), downgrading to oldest(1.1), reseating the card, etc. The fans on the card do spin.
Most recently I have switch UEFI bios to onboard graphics first, and with the HD 7950 still I place I receive error 0x0d (Problem related to memory, VGA card or other devices. Please clear CMOS, re-install the memory and VGA card, and remove other USB, PCI devices.)
I have also put back in my old HD 6850, which worked. Do you think the card is dead or there is some incompatibility with my mobo?
