Gigabyte Ga-m55sli-s4 Mobo -----> no onboard vid
1 gig ram (corsair 800)
amd athlon64 x2 4800+ (2.5 ghz)
ide hdd (some small 8gig old...)
earth watts 380 psu
Gigabyte Geforce 8500 512mb for video
cd/dvd (sony generic writer)
I've just put this sys together and i'm having a nightmare trying to install the drivers for the video card.
The installation goes to about 99% and then my sys crashes (reboots by itself) so the driver never gets installed...
Every time you try to install the drivers the sys reboots (tryed in safe mode too...same ****)
Bios is updated to latest...mobo seems ok ...memtest shows ok...
I think I narrowed the problem to 2 things : <1> video card or <2> PSU
says in the manual that the video card requires a minimum of 450W to where i only have 380 ...
i think this is the problem ...can you guys help me find the right cause for this issue... ?
thnkx in advance
uh, the 8500 shouldn't need a 450w PSU, and yours is of good quality so you should be OK in that department.
what drivers are you trying to use? you should try drivers from nvidias website if the CD ones aren't working for you, that worked for me once.
forgot to ask, what OS are you trying to use? is it 32-bit or 64-bit?
