I'll explain how it happened.
When I recieved my Asus HD4850.
I took out my Nvidia 7800gt, installed the HD4850. Everything went fine.
PC Posts, When windows begins loading the PC dies (powers off wont power on)
When I try to power on my PC, the pc begins to boot and abruptly turns back off.
I thought this was a problem with the power supply, so i replaced it, but that did not fix the problem.
If I plug my older gpu (7800gt) the pc runs fine, but if i plug the Asus HD4850 back in, the pc does not even power on.
What should i do? The pc runs fine with my older card, but with even power on with the HD4850. Could the HD4850 have overheated by the time it reached the windows desktop?
I also read that this could be a Asus mobo and Asus HD4850 problem, as they are not compatable. (google it.) Could the GPU just have died? If it had died wouldnt the pc still boot, just not POST?
