My computer will not even boot into BIOs with my BFG 7800gs agp oc. The computer powers up only some of the time with it in there, and when it does the monitor never comes on, it gets no signal. I have NEVER gotten past the black screen with the card in. But I took my old 6200 agp out of the closet and put it in, and EUREEKA, it boots right up without any problems. I don't get it, my good video card worked fine in my old system. I kind of suspected my power supply might be the problem, but I can disconnect every non-essential component and it still would not boot up in the new system. I'm no electrician, I don't know what amperage the thing runs at any given time, but it also worked fine with a weaker power supply with everything(all drives) hooked up in my old system. I talked to BFG's tech support, they suggested upgrading the BIOs and seeing if my card works on any other system. I have no way of finding that out for free, does anybody think BFG will take it back for testing? I am not experienced at upgrading the BIOs, but I will study up on it and give it a try. Just wondering if anybody has had similar problems or suggestions.
p.s. This has no bearing with the problem at hand, but I downgraded back to Windows XP for the moment.
