My current situation is as follows. I had an Asus M2N-MX SE Plus motherboard for almost 2 years. I Recently installed a Hard Drive to save all my non essential files to only to discover that This board only had 2 SATA ports.
After a bit of research and some help from friends and "experts", I decided to go with the Asus M4A785-M board.I have attached my DxDiag file for a more comprehensive look at the rig.
Here's where the fun begins. After installing, crossing my fingers, and sacrificing a chicken I pressed the power button. To my relief the rig began to boot. That relief was short lived when I noticed the graphics signal dropping. The screen would go black for 5 to 10 seconds, then the signal would come through for about 3 seconds, then back to black.I first figured it was merely a driver issue, so I proceeded to use the setup cd muddling my way through with only being able to see the screen for 3 out of every 15 seconds. After the setup cd finished I restarted. Same problem. I managed to get into my display properties and lower my resolution to the lowest possible and it works fine, but any resolution higher than minimum the blinking returns. So far I have...
Rechecked all connections
Updated all drivers
re-installed old mobo (everything worked perfectly when I did)
prayed to Angelina Jolie for luck (was worth a shot)
Switched RAM slots around
Reseated Graphics Card
Held Power button while reconnecting power cord
My last remaining thought is that my PSU may be too small. It's currently a 450w. However I can't currently afford a bigger one to test this theory.
Any suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated.
Edit, the attachment of the DxDiag file seemed to not work... can provide on demand if anyone wishes to see it
Second Edit. DxDiag now attached
