Hey all, new to the forum just looking for some help with upgrading my graphics card.
Current machine specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
3.40 gigahertz Intel Core i7-3770
Board: Acer Aspire M3970
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. P03-A3 04/18/2012
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
8156 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory
520w Mega Power PSU
I am trying to swap out my 550 ti for a new Gigabyte Geforce 660 (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4361#ov)
After installing the 660, my machine will not boot. Machine will turn on, display the acer logo briefly, all fans are spinning even the drive sounds like its active, beeps once and sits on the acer logo, cant even access the BIOS settings when I try to boot with the new card in.
Card functions fine on my other machine (Acer AM5630 http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=27378) so I know its not dead.
Any thoughts or suggestions? I have flashed my mother boards BIOS to the latest release, the cards BIOS is already up to date according to Gigabyte tech support. I have tried everything I can think of, please help!
