Alright, well I don't know exactly if It's the card or not. I said I was going to try it in my friends computer, but I couldn't do it without moving too much stuff around, and he's coming to get it tomorrow morning. I still had the other Saphire card, a cheap one, but it's one I used before I got the 4870. I thought I would put that one in my computer until I got the 4870 fixed. Well that one doesn't work either. I opened my friends computer back up and tried the cheap one in there and it worked...
I tried it in my computer again, in all the pcie slots and it didn't work.
What's wrong lol... the motherboard? :P I guess I'll try out the monitor next...
As for the LEDs.. There are four, and they are in a vertical row.
Starting with the one at the top it's
I think that's what it was, or it was red off red red.. but I'm pretty sure it was red red off red.
Could it be the mobo or something?
Oh, and the critical temperature.. I said I had it about an inch from my psu, but still.. when I was playing games it was at 50degrees (according to HWMonitor).
I'm taking the card to work tomorrow. I'm already haveing problems with the motherboard and I have no problem shelling out another 200$ for that. But the card will piss me off...
I bought the motherboard and all went well, A little later my girlfriend got me surround sound and it would plug in through the 3.5mm earphone jack. Well, when I plugged it in all of the speakers didn't work. I can get some to work, then move the cable and get others to work. I just figuerd it was the cable. Went through two more and had the same problems then I blamed it on the speakers. That's as far as I got, never tried them on another computer, but I will I guess tonight or tomorrow.
Then I read a review on Newegg about the motherboard (or maybe it's just the same brand) that the same thing happened to another guy, spent forever on the phone with the manufacturer and it didn't help. He finally figured out it was a driver problem or something, didn't post the fix though.
So screw this mobo :P
Yep, plugged it into my bros computer, It's the motherboard. Plugged it into my brothers computer (five active computers in my room) and it worked. I guess the ... brotherboard (LOL, you like that) is fine...
I'm really mad
But hopefully I can take this card to work and it will work. Then screw this motherboard. But I don't see what could have happened to it to just make the graphics cards stop working.. the fans work. I can't tell you if the CPU works because I can't see anything. The blue case LEDs work.. the light on the motherboard works, the one that turns green telling me it's ok to work on it or somthing.
I'm rambling. I'm trying to get everything out guys, sorry. I just built this computer to meet the peak of awesomeness.
