Since my last post, I have left my card in and plugged my monitor into my onboard to see if I can get into windows, and PNP the card. Still no dice, won't identify the card, doesn't exist according to my computer. Is the card dead, or what?? To verify if the PCIE power cable was the issue, I used theirs that can with it, still no dice. What the heck am I doing wrong?? The previous XFX 4850 I had ran great with this, just trying to make the leap to something new.
