GTX 460 in System will POST, but Hangs Before IRQ List

Bought a GTX 460 1GB to replace my 8800 GT. The card is running on a Core 2 Duo @ 2.8, MSI 975X PowerUp Edition, and an Antec Neo Power 550 with two 6-pin PCI-E cables powering it directly from the PSU.

The system will POST and I get the standard start-up screen. However, AFTER it shows memory, CPU speed/type, and a list of IDE drives, the system hangs ... no list of IRQs/devices and no booting.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Thanks In Advance,
Scott

  1. Try using your 8800 GT again and see if it all goes well. If it does, then try removing completely all your 8800 GT drivers, then install your GTX 460.
  2. is 550 watts enough for a gtx 460?
  3. Yes, it's enough for a GTX 460. More than enough for GTX 460 SLI in fact... but that's going very close to the PSU's limit so I wouldn't.
  4. 8800GT works fine when I put it back in. Since it doesn't even start loading Windows 7 I know it's not the drivers. It's go to be something on the motherboard. Again, I don't get the IRQ/Bus device list that normally comes up.

    Having same issue, I have an abit aw9d-max, similar chipset. Any ideas, or were you able to resolve. Thanks.
  6. I'm having the same problem with my gtx 460 with my aw9d-max!

    Did you make any progress in the end?

    This is really geting on my nerves now.
