I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers (old and new), I used "Display Driver Uninstaller", tried safe mode, etc etc - I am lost! The card will only show at 600x800

Could there be a compatiability issue with my hardware?
ASUS PRIME B450M-A Motherboard (2409 BIOS just updated)
Ryzen 5 2600

Please let me know what you think or if this is a lost cause - thx

There shouldnt be any compatibility issues. I have used cards as old as a Geforce 9600GT which is way, way older than yours with a Ryzen 5 3600, so no.


- What OS are you using? (yes I know it sounds silly but some people still using Windows 7/8/8.1 )

- Whats the brand and model of the GTX 660?

- Whats your monitor (display) brand and model?

- What cable (VGA, HDMI, DP) are you using to plug it into the monitor?; Are you using any video Adapter ( if so what kind? ) ?

- Whats the brand and model of your PSU?

Is the GPU new or used?
What's the brand and where did you get it?

I think the card is dead - I bought it used from eBay and the seller didn't even argue about a return

Looking closer there looks like a good amount of corrosion on the board so I think the card is dead -

I guess I will roll the die again and see if I can find a GTX660 (or something similarly inexpensive) that works

Glad you were able to contact the seller.
Be aware that besides getting not working parts, you might get old failing or fake ones.
There are many fake GPUs available on eBay and other similar websites.
