So I was upgrading from my very descent 5750 to a 6850 on my
K9A2 and this new card, which i've tested multiple times, does nothing.
The bios beeps are:
1 short 1 long 2 short
So I remembered to uninstall the drivers for the previous, then I tried the new card aaaand...
Nothing displays and so I said well maybe I bumped something. I put the other card in and it's fine except it says "previous over-clock settings set to default" or something and after I log in it re-installed the old drivers.
So... any hope?
well right now my computer is probably too confused and scared to know what those mean. Are they for post and bios? i've tried those. there must be some setting that is wrong because windows 7 would load. the hardware is there. Ah, well. I'll get some sleep. everyone thanks so far. we'll see how this goes. I am anxious for any help!
Did that and had left 5750 in. Worked. So i tried it with the other one and nothing. The bios beep was the same though.
I'm using a dvi to VGA converter but that hasn't been a problem for the 5750. The 6850 isn't displaying picture.
okay i removed a hard drive and reinstalled windows. The old card is fine. I think I was given a faulty card. Thanks... unless there is a way to know the card is hosed or usable without me going through all that again.
That is not a bad idea sometimes my mobo doesn't like updates. it's a k9a2 but that might not be the case anymore. I just had to to reinstal windows several times to try and address this pain.
which drivers ? there isn't a vga driver as of now nor pcie network drivers
the amd chipset driver needs update.
