Hey guys I recently got a Gigabyte ATI hd 5770 OC 1 gig to replace my Ati HD 3850, and when i put it my system its fails to post. The fans will sit and run at about 1/2 speed and the hard drives all spin up fine. But the only way i can get it to do any thing is to clear the cmos. I have been reading it might be the battery, how ever when i put my old VC in it works fine an runs like a champ.
I ran Belarc advisor and it shows that my bios are like 5 years old and was wondering if any one could help me find them.
(BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG 10/24/2006)
I have a ECS ka3mvp extreme Mobo Rev 1.0a
Amd 64 dual core 4200+
4 gigs of dual chan ram
2 Ide drives
1 sata drive
1 sata ssd
and a generic dvd burner
Dynex dx-p500 watt power supply
I don't think its the psu as when i unplug the the dvd burner and one of the hdds its still wont post
In my mind its either my mobo cant handle the better card or i need a bios up date
When i reset my bios it load up the splash screen for my mobo then stops and gives a Cmos check sum error i hit f1 to let it keep going then it hangs and gives me a DMI pool data error
K8 NPT data change .... update new data to dmi ....
then i get a bootmgr error and CAD resets then it sits with the fans runing at 1/2 speed
