Hello,
is my hd 4870x2 compatible with my asrock alivenf6g-dvi as i just got my cardi have tried everything i can think of to make it work curintly its just my mobo and gpu that is running i have unpluged everything els my mobo is only drawing 140w from my psu and it is a 550w thanks guy's

It's compatable. A 550w PSU won't output 550w just because thats how much it can do. It will only output as much as is needed at the time. If your problem is that the PSU doesn't output more power then that isn't a problem at all.

Or is the PC not booting?

Check the bios when you boot with the asrock DVI port used. Check if you have to change from the CPU's GPU to the dedicated GPU somewhere.

In windows' add and remove programs there is nothing at all from nVidia still installed? Swapping from nVidia to ati (and vice versa) can have weird problems like this. Which ver. of windows are you using?
