So I bought a sound card because my new motherboard seemed to be making static I couldnt get rid of.
I installed it having uninstalled old drivers and disabling onboard audio and powered on
It powers on and stays on but theres no video output whatsoever, i remove the card and comp starts just fine.
I tried the card in all 3 PCI express 1.0 slots and I get the same result. (My graphics card is working fine btw)
I looked at bios aswell and there dosent seem to be anything about PCI slots being disabled or somthing like that.
I try the card in 5 year old comp with some crappy MSI oem mother board that was always troublesome and it starts up and I install drivers just fine and it works perfectly.
So yeah.. I'm at a loss...
I really dont want to have to update the bios on board if I don't have to.. I mean it works on a 5 year old board with a bios from 2007?
You could try your video card in the bottom x4 slot (with nothing else in any of the PCIe slots) if your video card works there then you know the problem most likely lies with the sound card, if your video card doesn't work there then you have a bad PCIe slot since the x4 slot and the x1 slots all share the same bandwidth.
