Hi, this is my first post here, hopefully you guys can help me out.
I just swapped out my power supply and gpu (previously a 300w and gt 220 1gb, respectively) with a 600w power supply and an evga gtx 650. My problem here is that while it is displaying, Windows "has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)" Additionally, I can not set the resolution to 1920x1080, my monitor size, and there are red specks and stripes all over my screen. My BIOS version (A11) and graphics driver are updated to my knowledge. Thanks in advance for the help.
I've copied the specs from Piriform's Speccy program:
Operating System:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
CPU:
AMD Athlon II X3 425 36 °C
Rana 45nm Technology
RAM:
5.00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 333MHz (5-5-5-15)
Motherboard:
Dell Inc. 0F896N (AM2) 31 °C
Graphics:
Standard Monitor (1600x1200@1Hz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 (EVGA)
Storage:
298GB Western Digital WDC WD3200AAKS-75L9A0 ATA Device (SATA) 39 °C
Optical Drives:
HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM DH20N ATA Device
ELBY CLONEDRIVE SCSI CdRom Device
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS70 ATA Device

Sounds like a defective card or compatibility issue.

It is unlikely that it is under powered as any quality unit(even a 300-350 watt in most cases) will run the card without issue, but since they are both new parts, you may have to look into that as well(defects happen).

Do you have another system or a friends system to test the card in? That should make it more easy to say that the card or system is the issue.

Unfortunately, I don't have another computer to test it in. I can return it until the last day of January if it is simply a malfunctioning card, which I hope is the case, as I don't think there would be much to do but downgrade to a lower-grade gpu if it were a compatibility issue.

I'll return it for another one, hopefully the second time around will yield a better impression unto me from this card.

I have the 650 ti and it has been quiet good so far(aside from a slight driver bug that caused the card to clock up all the way for watching video, but that is long fixed now).

Would you have any idea if the regular 650 would be compatible with an Inspiron 546 mobo?

In general terms it is not THAT old. I see no reason it should not have worked.

I even tossed a GTX 670 into an old system to test for someone and it worked.

Update: I just put in the new one and it's working fine, I'm seeing a VERY large improvement from the GT 220. The previous one was just a lemon. Thanks for your help!
