I just bought this new adapter to install in a brand new machine. When I power the machine on I get no signal from the new card, and find the onboard Graphics adapter is still enabled. (The BIOS has an option for display priority, and PCI-E is the first/highest )
I switched the graphics adapter across to an older machine and the card failed in that too.
The graphics adapter from the old machine worked fine in the new one.
I was so confident that I had proved the graphics adapter to be faulty, that rather than wait for the reseller to replace, I bought another and will take a refund when the test results are back.
Now that I find my replacement Graphics adapter is exactly the same as the first, I am not so confident....
Have I just blown four hundred quid on 2 useless cards ?
I dont even get the BIOS screens BTW. Is there hope ?
