I've got an annoying problem. I bought a couple of new parts for my pc but the last one, my graphics card, doesnt work. When I insert it into the PCI-E x16 slot on my motherboard and turn on my pc it just shows me a black screen. No bios, no nothing. When I remove the card the pc starts up fine. I've tried updating my bios, but the latest update posted on the HP website doesn't make it work. I've fitted the card into my brothers machine to check if the card is faulty, but it does work. I've been working on it for 8 hours straight, reading forum posts, looking for updates, checking software, checking hardware, trying everything, but it doesnt work. The slot works, the card works, but the combination doesn't. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I started out with a stock HP a6110.nl. It's guts are now the following:
Mobo: Asus P5LP-LE Leonite (stock)
PSU: Scythe chouriki 2 650W
CPU: Pentium 4 duo core 650 3.4Ghz
DDR(2)RAM: 2x Kingston 2Gb + 2x 512Mb (stock)
GPU: onboard Intel family chipset 256Mb (stock)
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
Network: Edimax Wifi 811.0n
HDD: Hitachi HDS721616PLA3 160Gb (stock)
Optical: TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H653L (stock)
As you can see it's gone some way from stock, but the 256Mb GPU makes it unstable to do any serious computing. So if I cant get the HD6750 installed I've simply wasted money and an amazing amount of time.
I've given you as much info as I can. I hope one of you can do what my hobby skills haven't. Please HELP!
Couldn't they also go with a 2.0 card? I know there are issues with the 2.1 cards (which is why i don't want to buy a 2.1 for my 1.oa express) but from what i understand there doesn't seem to be these problems with the 2.0 ones. Just a thought.
