Hello,

Have read these forums for awhile now and I need a bit of help. Problem is that the pc will not boot up when the 8800 ultra is installed in either PCI-E slot. If I remove the card, the pc boots all the way up as I can hear the windows startup through my speakers. When I have the gfx card installed I get no bleeps and the phase LED lights all stay lit. systems specs are :

Antec 900 Case
Gigabyte ep45-ud3p
QX9650 CPU
4 x 1gb corsair dhx xms2
inno 3d 8800 ultra
corsair 650hx PSU
Thermalright ultra extreme HSF

I get no beeps when the error occurs, and can not hear any activity from the HDD's. All fans power up but no other activity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Pepe. Thanks for the reply. I don't have an option to check the graphics card in another pc. I may just order a cheap gfx card to test. Also noticed that the graphics card fan spins initially and then powers stops after 5 seconds.
