I recently bought an update to my 9600GT gpu.
When I installed the 6870, the pc starts up but there's only a black screen.
I hear windows starting up due to the windows sound playing.

My system is;
Asus M3N78 PRO
4 Gb Kingston
AMD X4 940
OCZ 600W Power Supply

So now I am wondering if it's the mobo or that the card is incompatible with my mobo so that it causes the black screen.
I've googled some and it says it can't be the PCI-e 2.0 caus that's backwards compatible.

Have you checked the card in your friends PC to rule out that it isnt the issue with the card itself ?
