Default Re: Video Card problem

I had a similar problem with a 7800GT and my son's computer. No matter what I did, it just wouldn't post. I switched PSUs, checked to see if anything was shorting. Different drivers, everything. Never got it to work in his. It worked perfectly in my machine though. So I ended up sticking that 7800GT in my comp and getting a 7900GS for his.

One thing that was suggested to me was to go into safe mode and set the resolution down low to something the monitor could easily handle. Like 800x600 or even 640x480 at 60Hz or so.

I've gone into safe mode with the card, and set the resolution as far down as it'll go, which was 800x600 I think, and it still doesn't help...

Ok, I've found a solution. It turns out i had to hook up to the card, go into safe mode, and disable the integrated graphics drivers via the device manager, then restart. It worked like a charm.

Hey, good job. I would never have thought of that one. (As you can see from my previous posts.)

I 'll have to file that trick away for future reference.
