So my 7800gt appears to be a paper weight.
Its an xfx 7800gt. I have heard that although this card performs the best XFX makes alot of bunk cards.
When I put it in the PCIE slot it is not detected at all by my computer.
I have set it to PCIE as the primary graphics adapter in my bios.
My mobo has an AGP slot and a PCIE slot. The card is PCIE.
My mobo is a Asrock Dual Sata
Here are the issues that I'm thinking
1. Card is Doa
2. Mobo PCIE slot is dead
3. Not getting enough juice.
Now I think its getting enough juice I have all the power cables plugged in and a 550w+ power supply thats pretty decent.
The fan is spining on the card so I think the power is working.
Anyways I'm ticked that it didn't work. i couldn't bring myself to even play games with my new monitor without having the big card in.
So I'm bringing my card into a computer shop at lunch to see if they can get it to run. Then I'll know if it is the card or my mobo. I'm hoping its my mobo so I can play today!
Life is cruel my friends
