I recently updated my gpu from gt 9500 to HD 5770, but the first time I connected it, it won't give me a display.. instead an orange light flashes at my monitor. While it was running I heard the windows chime so I switched the cable from the card to the mobo and it showed a display. I haven't installed any driver or anything. What could be the problem? I placed my 9500 GT back and it worked perfectly.
My mobo is G31T-M7 running a Dual core processor.
I have HEC Raptor R500 (500W) Power supply.
with some video cards and mother boards the new video card will become monitor #2 and the onboard chipset the main monitor. intill you load the drivers for the video card and reboot or sometime you have to go into the bios and change from onboard video to pci video as the first device. some mb vendor also let you turn off the onboard video.
Thanks guys for all the answers. I finally got it to work by resetting BIOS settings .
I wasn't able to try the steps you provided because I was out for a vacation, but thanks so much and I really appreciate it . ^^
