   Hello everyone

I have just purchased an Asrock G41C-GS because my old P5K is not working anymore.When i install my invidia 8600 gt 512mb i dont get any signal in the monitor even though my on board graphics works fine,when i plug in my GPU though neither of them works(the gpu fan is running but its doesnt send any signal on my monitor).I saw in another post that i have to make a bios update but my bios version is the latest (p1.40).The GPU fan is working and there is light coming from it but the problem is that i have a black screen on my monitor,so maybe the problem is in bios options?
I also found some options in the bios menu such as ACPI CONFIGURATION->PCI PME# POWER but i dont know if i should enable that
Does anyone have a simillar problem or perhaps has any idea about what should i do?
 

Thanks in advance!

 

My pc:

GPU: Nvidia 8600 gt 512mb

CPU: Intel core 2duo 2.66 ghz

RAM: 2 gb  ddr2

PSU: 400 watt psu

MOBO: Asrock G41C-GS

ok, different BIOS editions call it different things, but ultimately it is a toggle for the PCI device enable.

 

PMS means power management sytem

 

ACPI mean advanced configuration power interface...

 

i would believe that is your target toggle.   mine is called PEG

 

go into the device manager, disable the card, uninstall drivers , turn PC off

 

power on ; boot into BIOS (f2) , turn on your integrated onboard video,

 

boot up into windows normally with the integrated video

 

power down, install 8600

 

power on, boot into safe mode

 

check that the card is  picked up in device manager

 

, power down.

 

power up, boot into BIOS , enable PCI device in BIOS.

 

boot into windows safe mode, install the drivers that you have ready to launch

 

power down

 

power up, boot into windows normally..

 

you should arrive at your destination, if not, i will be following this thread and checking in.
