    New Graphics card, PC won´t boot

    JuanCaWA

      So, happy as can be, I just replaced my old EVGA GeForce GT 220 with a gorgeous EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti FTW.

       

      I hook it up, install the drivers and I'm asked to restart it, so I do it. As it came back up, well, it didn't, it's stuck on the bios load screen, where you're asked to press F# for settings, update, boot menu, that stuff. It just beeps a couple times, a minute in between, then screen goes black and I get the old DOS "_" cursor alone, top left corner. From there on, dead.

       

      If I take out the card and use the default from the motherboard, it runs like a charm. I uninstalled all the nVidia drivers and controllers, in hopes that'll let me start over, but no luck so far. The BIOS needed some heavy updating. Luckily there´s your update tool so it's just click and wait. However, all updates ran and installed and no joy still.

       

      Here's what I've tried with the card: Put the old card back in (EVGA GeForce GT 220), and download the 347.09 driver from NVidia.com/drivers , but did not install any yet. Removed all installed nVidia drivers, through control panel. Shut down, and install the 750ti card, without installing any drivers yet. Turn back on, same deal, no joy.

       

      I noticed the updater for the BIOS said everything was done, but the chipset update still shows an older version. I re-ran that part of the update twice, and it said successful, but still shows the old version. This one is out of my league I'm afraid. Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the asssist in advance!
