I just did my first build...but I am having a problem.

My motherboard is not recognizing the video card. it will not post

Motherboard: Biostar nf325-a7
Processor: AMD64 3400
RAM: 1gig ocz
Video Card: geCube Raedon x1300
OS: xp pro
PSU: 400w

Using an old video card, the new system works fine. Putting new video card in old system, works fine.

Old MB: Biostar m6vcg

any suggestions?

did you have an old card you took out? if so did you remove the drivers for that card aswell?

Seems strange. I checked the compatability of both mobo and video card and all seems well there. I just read the mobo manual looking for clues, I didn't see any.

Hope this doesn't sound too stupid, but did you plug power into the new video card?

yep...did that :thumbsup:

that was my initial thought too (under powered), but the old computer has a 250 W...works fine on that comp. I tried switching to another 4 pin...still no luck.

Ok, try this:

Enter into the BIOS.
Choose Standard CMOS Features.
Under Video make sure EGA/VGA is selected.
Press F10 to save changes and exit BIOS.

I have, ironically, the same exact issue(X1300 and all), that I posted earlier about. Replacing it with the old graphics card makes everything run like before.
Let me know if you figure it out, and good luck!
Oh and where is this Video in BIOS....mine doesnt seem to have it....for that matter anyting about graphics cards.

If its any help, I head possibly disabling onboard graphics settings might do the trick... I would have tried that, but I have no idea how... :thumbsup:

Thanks again, and good luck!

My instructions were specific for a Biostar nf325-a7 motherboard. I am guessing you have a different motherboard.

If the vid card don't work but the old one still works - must be a problem with the new one!
