Hi there.. I'm in a bit of a pickle..

I just bought a new rig:

i7 3770
16gb hyperx ram 1600
ocz vertex 3 120gb sata 6gb
Z77 chipset


I installed windows 8 on the intel hd 4000 and it runs flawlessly. I recently purchased a 9800gt as my friend had one and I was really impressed with the performance for such a dated card.

My issue is once installing the card the bios boots up and so does the windows 8 loading screen but once getting to the login screen (I assume) the screen switches off.

I've tried installing the drivers in safe mode and it does so successfully but once rebooting it goes black again.

Anything anyone can suggest?

Thanks

I have a BeQuiet Pro p10 750w and I booted into safe mode and installed the drivers but still no dice

have you tried the latest driver? did you have any discrete card in your system prior to this card?

Try a different DVI output on the card. I had a similar problem on an 8800GT.

It was all setup on the Intel HD 4000.. I've tried multiple outputs and different pci-e slots. disabled the onboard and renabled just in case..

Ahaa.. Sorted it.. the motherboard lets me choose what revision of pci-e i want to use and it was on automatic so I set it to pci-e gen 2 and walla it works.

Thanks for the suggestions :)

It turns out that it was my motherboard in the end. Seriously a rubbish Mobo.. Gigabyte jobby. Cant recall the model though.

Easy option if you add a graphics card to any system that has an on board card is to disable the on board. Automatic should of worked for PCiE revision settings and most cards will work off windows drivers well enough to allow you to put the drivers in, all be it at a low quality setting, usually .
