Black screen- ASUS EAH4870 DK/HTDI/1GD5

Hi there

I'm hoping that someonce can give me at least an idea of what might be the problem I'm having with the limited info that I have. I have a EAH4870 DK/HTDI/1GD5 videocard


Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 3.06 GHZ

Antec 650 Power

initially the MB led light would go on but nothing else would boot up, no fans nothing. I thought it might be a pSU issue but a friend tested a new power supply and thats not the issue. Everything DOES power up when the onboard video is disconnected. However there are 3 red lights flashing on the video card when this is doen and although the fans are working and it seems to have power I have a black screen,,

D1601 - Red LED On, shows critical temperature fault
D1602 - Red LED On, shows External power connector A was removed
D1603 - Red LED On, shows External power connector B was removed
D601 - Red LED On, shows critical Core power fault(THIS IS THE ONLY LIGHT THAT IS NOT LIT)
Any ideas?

  1. did you connect both power connections on the video card?
  2. Yes, both were plugged in
  3. What MOBO do you have?

    Do the LEDs stay on?
  4. Its a micro ATX IG41. The MB Led remains on at all times
  5. Have you tried changing the BIOS setting under Chipset area, Intergrated Graphic Adapter.
