I have a xfx 4870 and it will not boot in asus striker extreme. card works on other boards.
and a 9800gt works fine on the striker , am i missing something ?
my monitor is a lg l194wt connected by a dvi cable.
no signal output at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried using it in another motherboard ?
Also try updating your BIOS too

That's strange,have you tried using it on different PCI-E slots ?
And what's your PSU ?

I did a search and found this
http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?board_id=1&model=St...
"PCIx version 2.0 cards are backward compatible with version 1.0, so this should definitely not be an issue. In some cases the video card's installed BIOS may be incompatible with certain motherboards. In this case you can get a BIOS revision for the video card from the card manufaturer that will fix this and you will need to install the video card on a machine that is supported long enough to flash the video card BIOS. Call the manufacturer and ask them specifically about the video card BIOS being incompatible with your motherboard. If they say there is no known issue then make sure that your PSU supports the video card, and if so then you're home free."
So try updating the VGA's BIOS and check if it helps(it's risky though,but its the last thing i can think of).

Been searching for bios file cant seem to find one. registered with xfx tech support to see about compatibility. lots of bios horror stories on web. worth a try though if i can get bios from a worthy source. thank you...

This is the error i now get in device manager. Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52) .... tried older drivers tried just the drivers without ccc .. i have a x-fi soundcard i've tried uningstalling software and removing card still no joy... sorry its been so long thanks in advance
