hey guys, i just installed my VTX3d 5770 in2 my system, problem is now the system aint booting, i installed my old graphics card to see if it would boot, and it does. so i installed the new driver, thinking that was the problem, but its still not working. im using a x16 2.0 if that means anything, but surely that shouldn't make the computer un-bootable?
Do you get any lights or beeps? Does it not bring up any Video at all?

i do not get any beeps or lights, apart form the power indicator on the case. and i get no video at all. it just sits there with the fans spinning and no indication of hard drive activity, could the interface type have something to do with it? like the one on my board is x16 2.0 and the card is x16 2.1?
no, maybe you have a DOA card, btw what output are you using on the 5770 vs the old card?
and what brand make model is ur psu? just because the fans are spinning don't mean it's getting enough juice, the delta between the power req of these two are kinda BIG.
lok the model number or some form of ID number on there that can pin it's make down

oh right so that rules that one out then. so if its not the interface type, then what could it be? maybe its not receiving enough power? altho my X1300 works fine, and the 5770 is getting power cause i can hear and see the fans spinning. i could test in another system?

in response to theunholylancer:
and the brand name is colors. i never heard of it but it came with my case, which only cost me 22.99 lol and i don't know what you mean by output, the wattage or the display type? and ur saying i could have a dead card?
altho it doesn't have some of the cables that it says it does. can you recommend a power supply within £80 that supports cross fire? your help is great appreciated. and the box on the 5770 says it needs a 450w minimum :S
read that page and you can see that it is indeed able to provide 650 Watts of power, and enough for a 5770 CF, maybe even more.
read the full review carefully to see what makes a good psu if you want, but i personally perfer hardware secrets' reviews and expliniation, as each of their review is detailed and helpful. But hey, they did not look at the 650 TX so I can't comment either way.
