Hello everyone! I have a new MSI GeForce GTX 660Ti Power Edition 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Car.
Unfortunately I can't get the bugger to work. It freezes at my mobo - POST/BIOS select screen and won't boot to windows, or let me do anything else, such as enter BIOS.
So I uninstalled everything and threw my old gtx260 216 back in and it works fine.
Is it possible that my old asus motherboard m3n-ht deluxe / hdmi simply will not work with 600 series GPU cards? or have I bad card? or missed a setting somewhere?
Any idea's of what to check would be appreciated before I go posting it back to supplier.
Specs just incase:
M3N-HT Deluxe/HDMI Mobo
750w Antec Gamer PSU
Well I'd first try the usualy stuff like re-seating the card, checking that the PCI-E power connectors are plugged in securely. If your still having problems then install your GTX260 and have a look online to see if a newer BIOS is available for your motherboard.
Hi, thanks for the input.
I checked and my current version of BIOS is the last version they did for my particular Mobo, I updated it quite a long time ago.
I re-sat it, checked a few more times and it still doesn't seem to work.
I wonder if that's it then, the card is either broken or just not compatible with my old mobo?
Gutted, better contact the supplier then. Thanks again.
I just purchased this card and had the exact same problem. Have you already installed your OS?
I had to unseat my card and wait until I had installed the MSI Afterburner program on the disk before I could plug it in. Then I had to manually download the drivers and it would say "no video hardware supported" Then I would turn off the computer, reseat the card and it would boot itno the OS, but I had to stay plugged into my motherboards onboard gfx while I did this.
however now I'm having problems with the card because when I start a game the card will go haywire and shut my computer down out of nowhere.
