The latest bios version has to support the card, so the problem has to be something else. Did you connected the 6-pin power cable to the card?
Hi Fun Surfer. I am running BIOS A05. I thought my friend had upgraded to the latest BIOS version (A09 I think) but he says it is a beta version so he didn't install it incase it caused problems. He also checked out all the hardware and M/board connections and said they were fine. I did connect the 6-pin power cable to the card so that wasn't the problem. Do you know what the latest 'proper' BIOS version is and what is the best way to install it? Many thanks for your help and any suggetions.
