I have problem with my motherboard and graphics card.

My PC specs:

Motherboard: Asus M4A785D-M PRO
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.6GHz
Mem: Kingston DDR2 HyperX 2x2GB Dual-Chanel
GPU OLD: HIS X 1550 Hyper Memory 128MB 64-Bit DDR2
GPU NEW: Gainward GeForce GTX 460 GLH 1024MB 256-bit GDDR5
Sys disc: Western Digital 160 GB SATA
Power Supply (3 days old): Cooler Master RS-600-ACAB-L3 600Watts

Operating sys.: Win 7 64-bit

Monitor: LCD Asus 720p 19" (5 years old)



PC run perfect with my old graphics card.
But when i change it to the new graphics -monitor will not start.
Monitor is still in stand-by mode (orange led)

I already tried :

1.I bought new power supply 600W (old was 460W).
2.Graphics is OK - tested in another PC (i dont know details about that pc).
3.CLRTC procedure to Clear the CMOS done
4.Bios i set to GFX0-GPP-IGFX-PCI :GFXO = Primary video controller on a PCI-e x16 slot
5.Yes i check all connectors.
6. Latest Bios used 1001.

The fan of GTX 460 start normally.

Beeping after start is ok .Same like with ok graphics X1550.

Internal graphics HD4200 works fine also.


I think the problem is in the motherboard / BIOS / PCIe compatibility. ?

Got any idea ?

Thank you.
Simon.

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode?

 

Have you tried removing the dedicated card to see if the integrated graphics works?

You may have done this already, but using your integrated video, go into your BIOS and make sure the primary display is set to PCIe. Sometimes boards default themselves to the integrated chip.

With my new graphics card i see just black screen all the time.

 

Bios is already set to primary display PCIe.

 

Integrated graphics card works fine.

Did you connect the two six pin supplementary power connectors with the PSU?

In your first post you wrote that your problem was with your motherboard and graphics card.

 

You now post that the old integrated card works, so I have to assume from this that the motherboard isn't an issue.  Because the computer works with the integrated graphics I have to wonder if there is a problem with your new card.  If this was purchased locally I would take it back and exchange it.  If it was purchased online I would see if it can be RMAed.

Graphics card is OK.

I already tested the graphics card in another PC.

That information should have been in your initial  post, it makes a big difference in understanding your problem.

 

Do you have another PCIe socket that you can try?  The problem could be a bad socket.

My motherboard should be OK too, because my old graphics card works fine in PCI-e socket.

 

And here is the problem :

1.Motherboard is OK -with my old graphics card works fine.

2.And NEW Graphics card is OK too -(tested in another PC).

Just for kicks and grins, if you have another PCI-E socket, try it in there.

You can use the old graphics card, correct?

 

Install it, download the driver for the new graphics card, but don't install it yet.

 

Reboot into Safe Mode, Windows uses a different driver native to the operating system, so you should be able to uninstall the old graphics card's driver and install the driver for the new one.

 

Install the new graphics card and see what happens.
