Ihave been successful in building and asusm4a785td board 700w ocz 4Gb Gskill ripjaw AMD Phenom2 x6 with xp sp3 setup. I installed a sapphire vaporx 5770 video card and the pc won't power on if I remove the card it will turn on. I am sure my psu is fine is my card dead or should I try something, if do what?

Did you connect the 6pin PCI-E cable to the card prior to booting?

Yes. I connected it directly to the psu.

Oh dear. Have you tried the card in a different slot? Do you get any error beeps from POST? Are all your power connections secure? My PSU (Corsair 1000W) has blue and black connections. The blue ones are for high power devices such as GPU, where as the black ones are for HD's etc. Are you sure you have your connections in the right devices?

Is there anyway you can test that card on another PC?

No beeps. I am using a pci-e power cable that came with my psu plugged into the red slots the plug is red so i figured thats where it went. My fans lights blink and then nothing happens. I have tried it in both slots.

I don't suppose you have an old video card you could try in your PC?

So does this card work in your PC? If so it looks like the card maybe faulty. You might have to RMA it if so.

Sounds like a bad ATI 5770. :(  It can happen.

Trying the GFX 5200 PCI card doesn't necessarily rule things out. The best thing to do is try another PCI-E card just to make sure your motherboard isn't the one having a problem with it's PCI-E socket. Though I'd guess there's a better chance it's the video card.

O.k. pci worked so I tried a different pci-e cable and it turned on. However during installation of the drivers my pc crashed page faults and lots of different error issue ending in lsass. After many attempts to fix I just chkdsk /r fresh install, however I am having windows update issues now and pc hangs at safe mode select screen. I have recovered from a few critical errors and had to chkdsk /r twice to fix the files system. The 5770 is in and working when it boots up so I at least one step closer.

Which drivers should I install? Will any cause driver conflict with the 5770? Are the amd chipset drivers for integrated graphics?

Install the chipset drivers, if you are using a dedicated GPU you do not need to install the integrated graphics driver.

You might have a bad drive, did you try to re-install windows again (3rd time)?

Anyone else notice that he switched PCI-E power cables and things started working suddenly?

Could he be having a power problem?

Also, with reference to video driver conflicts. You can go into the BIOS for the motherboard and disable the integrated/onboard video with most motherboards. :)  You can then also set "Primary Display" to PCI-E on many boards.

It was a bad cable. Everything is working now. Chkdsk recovered bad sectors so taht must have been part of the probelem. I had already setup the 5770 as primary and disabled the integrated gpu. Thanks for all the help.

Sounds like you migh have a bad psu as inferred by Jereence.
Power cutting out to your HD during writes causes disk errors. Unstable power is notorious for doing this.
Another symptom is the computer just refusing to start up sometimes. Not starting the boot cycle.
Do you have hardware monitor installed, it at least shows a couple voltage sensor readings. If the 12 v line is bouncing around it could help your troubleshooting.

no errors on chkdsk no bad sectors. Going to run the hw monitor , what do youmean by bouncing around? Shold the number remain the same for the 12v? Is it supposed to move up and down slighlty or am I just looing for drastic increase and decrease in the value?

drastic movement is not good. If you start 3d apps, or put load on cpu with prime 95 it may go down a little, from its resting normal.
12.1
may go down to 11.7-12.2
11.2 would be bad.

12.09 then it jumps to 12.66 back to 12.09 then back to 12.66 consistently

my usb slots are acting funny. The asusu baord has six the red ones don't recognize my mouse or keyboard. My pc seems to be stable as long as I am not connected to the internet or I don't have my tp-link in a usb drive. 12v still fine ran oblivion ati overdrive tests wtih no change. I ran a registry scanner and had 400 + registry problems I am not familiar with too much about the registry.

Ok so i figured out that most of these issues were coming from my ram. I cannot run 2 2gb sticks at the same time either as sinle mode or dual.
