Hello community, i recently purchased a new graphics card, the GTX 650, and I tried installing it on my computer that used to have a 8600 GTS, and for some reason it wont detect the GTX 650, and the minimum requirement for the graphics card is 400w, and i have a 550w. I heard you had to uninstall everything from the old graphics card, (like drivers and such) so i uninstalled everything that had NVIDIA on it. Still wouldn't work. I really don't know what could be the problem...
AMD x2 550 BE
Motherboard: MSI 870A-G54
ram: 4 gig
Yeah I tried a different slot but no luck... And I checked the PSU and checked everything else... Do you think it could be a bad card? I stuck in my old graphics card and it worked . So... It's either compatibility with the motherboard or a bad video card. I'm praying it to be a bad video card because I can get that easily replaced .
Yeah, I'v updated the bios to the latest version, and i heard somewhere removing a stick of RAM will enable it to function properly, but now that i updated the bios, and stuck the ram back in, it will only detect 3.2 GB out of 4. Is there anyway to fix this? I'm guessing this has something to do with the motherboard max memory. My ram performance on my windows index used to be higher, but now it's only a 5.9 so there has been a dramatic chance of computer speed. Besides the RAM issue, the graphics card was finally detected, and i'm able to use it! I just want to use my ram's full potential of memory, since my computer has like i said dramatically slowed down, then the way it used to be as it stood at a 7.4 in the windows experience index, but only at a 5.9.
