I recently upgraded my gpu to a Gigabyte GTX 580. Since then, every time I try to launch a game, it plays for a few seconds before my monitor goes black and displays a "no input" message (the same one that displays when my computer isn't on), but the sound continues to play. I ran furmark for about 15 minutes and it reported no problems, and the temperature never rose above 60C. Occasionally (about 10% of the time) when I reboot after this problem, a windows error message will come up reporting bc code 116. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers several times to no avail. Thanks in advance for the help. If it matters, here are my specs:
mobo- Intel dx58so (1 month old)
CPU- i7 950 (1 month old)
GPU- gigabyte gtx 580 (new)
PSU- 1000w (I dont know the brand- about 2 years old)
What games......... and did you mess around it the nvidia control panel at all......... and did you try older drivers... ??? forgot, what are you using for a monitor..........hat was your old card and does that still work ?
I can't run memtest at the moment (just ran of discs, as is my luck). I just ran the one in the Intel Desktop Control thing for a bit, and it seems to have done fine. I haven't tried older drivers yet, and I haven't touched the nvidia control panel. I've tried running Dragon Age and Fallout: NV. My monitor is a viewsonic something or other. max resolution 1680x1050.
59 is okay. Bad card, can't be a bad slot if you tried the other card, or the power supply is not right.......... can't say more without the machine here. Did you try another PCI-E slot ? Does this board use a "card" if one of the PCI-E slots are unused ? I see at newegg there's a few complaints about black screen.
I have this problem with a HD 4850. OCCT, Furmark, prime95 all show the card works. The card's ram is fine and the pci-e slot is fine too, but still I can't get it to work in some games. It just black screens and I have to hard restart to get my system back.
So I tried dual monitors and I can game on it without any issues. I still don't know what is wrong with it, but at least we have a workaround. Sounds like you *might* be having a similar problem.
Looking at my PSU voltages, they are 12.67v on the 12v 3.27v on the 3.3v and 5.04v on the 5v. I know a multimeter would be more accurate than software (I don't own one and am a bit tight on money at the moment), but I don't know if these voltages are "bad" or not. Anyone?
I've heard rumor floating around that there is some compatibility issue between the Intel dx58so and the GTX card's drivers. I can't confirm this though, but it is a rumor... as little as that might help...
