Gpu not recgonized on startup

Hey guys,

I'm having a problem with my gtx285. I have the msi superpipe edition, which has 2 fans on it. When the computer works, the fans immediately spin fast and make a lot of noise, but then slow down and quiet down abit. Then monitor lights up and it boots up.

However, now when I turn it on, the fans spin really fast and never slow down. The monitor also doesn't get any signal, however the computer boots because I can hear the windows 7 chime in my speakers.

I can get it to work if I let it boot into the operating system and then hit the power button, which shuts it down. Then if I turn it on, it works.

Anyone know how to fix this?


Asus P6t deluxe v2 mobo
MSI superpipe OC gtx285
OCZ gold 6gb @ 1333mhz
i7 920 @ 3.6ghz
Corsair 850w
Coolermaster v8

Any help would be much appreciated

  1. hmm, when u heared win7 chime then your system is succeed to boot.
    Check your connection cable and make sure your card is properly attached to the pci-e slot...
  2. I tried what you said with no result. I checked the vga cable and removed the graphics card and put it back.
    Any other suggestions?
  3. hmm.. have u tried with another monitor?
  4. I don't have an extra monitor around and the monitor would not explain the fan issue.
    I am wondering if the card is faulty and I should get a replacement.
  5. Then take your card to your friends computer and see what happen next...
    If that still occur then it's your card is in trouble...
  6. Well I actually plugged my card into another PCIe slot on my mobo and it functioned it may be my motherboard
    I'm thinking of replacing both my mobo and card. Any last thoughts before I get a replacement?

    Thx a lot, you've been really helpful
  7. Okay, if your card is working on the other pcie slot then it's ok, do u want to SLI?
    IF u do then u must get a new mobo, if u don't then it's ok to continue with your mobo...

    Before u buy a new mobo, just try to update the mobo's driver first, if that not help then your mobo is not function properly...
  8. Do you still have this Video Card, and would you be willing to sell it to me?
