I just installed a new video card but I can't get it to load past the boot screen. It boots in safe mode but not in VGA mode so I'm assuming it's a problem with the drivers. I've tried installing two versions of it and neither work. I've tried it both on Windows 7 and Windows XP.
It never did. It might be my power supply but I don't want to have to go buy a new one just to see if thats the case. Is there anyway to tell if my card's getting enough power? My PSU is rated at 585W so technically it should be more than enough.
What's your PSU? In case you know your PSU can handle the card, is there any config on your BIOS you can think of it might be causing the PCIe to malfunction? O not only the PCIe, any component when you install the card.
Well I checked by BIOS. It's telling me that the 12V is pulling what it should. I have no way of checking the actuage wattage so I can't tell if it's the PSU or not. The only options in the BIOS that seem relevant are [PCI Devices Power On] under ACPI settings which default is disabled and [PCI Latency Timer] default is 32.
