which motherboard model number you know has no problems with running the ATI HD4870x2 single graphic card? (its a dual gpu graphic card x16)
need a motherboard between £60 and £100
cheers..with nb and sb cooling pipes
yeah its realy making me mad, the card i know is fine the previous owner worked fine for him and its in new condition.
first mobo i got had nvidia chipset (p5ne-sli) it worked but so slow only with ati cards, tried everything bios, format, power supply no luck
second board was fast but as soon as i install any ati driver and restart, it loads xp then goes to a blackscreen for 10min then restarts and keeps doing that
i tried new drivers..old,,,hd tv,,non hd,,,crt,,,same i flashed bios, i re-formatted, used one ram, same same..
until I read dfi x48-t2rs boards and the rest of x48 dfi boards have a problem with this card, they made a bios fix but didnt work for me.
this is my problem...i install ATI driver, I restart, windows xp loads then hangs then continues to load then i expect the desktop to show but it shows black screen
no sound behind nothing just black screen. "no signal loss sign appearing but black screen"
i got 850W certified PSU. just wanna kill myself...2nite i am gona try the 8.9drivers with vista and see what happens.
I spent so much time and money for this rig and I am a qualified IT engineer beleive me I know computers but geeks like you know graphics and what works
and doesnt because some of you personally tried it and I am not looking for those who read manuals or reviews online, but your help is much apreciated and
