ok next thing to check is power.
is you power supply 300w or over. does the card require a 6pin power input and does the system beep during boot.
yes, i have a 550w powersupply. no the card does not require a 6pin power input.
no, the system does not beep.
if those are ok then put the 210 in and connect to the monitor to the onboard vga and then boot just to check it not outputting to the onboard.
I hav'nt tried this out. i ll try this...
If that doesn’t work then the card may be defective so test it if you have another system or a friend who’s willing to help out
alright. but i am having a feeling that my mobo supports only pci express 1, whereas the graphics card requires pci express 2 atleast. would that cause a problem ? or should the card still work ?
