Vista Won't Boot After Installing PCI Card

I don't know if it's relevant but my network chip doesn't work either, although it stopped working 15 months ago. All ideas are welcome. 0 Advertisements #2 jt1990 Posted 01 July 2008 - 07:31 PM jt1990 Member 1K Member 1,519 posts Do you have a new PCI card to test it I only switched the cards in the first place to verify the pci slot was working.

crosstrainer 09:27 12 Jun 08 I found this, although I don't think it applies to your machine...American based company (would have to be with a name like that) If I want Probably wrong version of PCI spec. After receiving the card and installing it, Vista didnt boot. I'm outtie.

Im thinking either the PSU is too weak or there is some driver issue with the slots after I installed the 8500 in the pci-e. It sounds like your PC got hit by a power surge or it has a faulty power supply that has caused the failures. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------HP ENVY 17T-u100, i7-7500U, NVIDIA 940MX, 16GB, 512GB So I returned the 650 and bought a 1000W PSU and I am up and running. 24" flanked by two 22"s on each side.

Now let's see if my productivity inceases proportionally to my viewing space. Additionally, what is the minimum Wattage I should be thinking about when buying a new PSU.

This is what I have: Gateway gt5012 pentium D 820 2gb ram 2 hard drives (250 and 400) 2 dvd drives 2 22" acers and 1 24" acer 1 pci-e geforce No, create an account now. Assumed I should just be able to plug the PCI card in and boot.Can't believe I have two duff PCI cards with the same symptom. http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/203669-computer-wont-turn-on-after-new-pci-card-install/ I remove the card, Vista boots fine.

Hi Know a good program that can make... And so I went back on newegg.com and bought a new card, this time its a Koutech ppc110 which the site states to be compatible with Vista. "Hurray!" I think. Does a pci card draw more power than a pci-e card (that doesn't take the pci-e 6 pin power input) Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

I'm not even at the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" level but I'm not ham-fisted either. crosstrainer 09:25 12 Jun 08 With a name like that..........I suspect you are right. This is the third new card I've tried.

e.g. http://controlpanelsource.com/vista-won-t/vista-won-t-allow-me-to-run-pvremoteviewx-cab.html I've tried some other combinations, it just doesn't happen. I know that works.Thx. I had to use a 5 year old legacy driverless card, and even then, only that monitor had signal when booting. 07-05-2008, 09:49 PM #7 sinasayyah Registered Member

Can there be a fan on top of the PSU if there is no vent in the case on top? talking to Dell Support and the Geek Squad and hours on Google.. I bought an antec 650W and one of the 6200s started working along with the 8500 in teh pci-e slot. Thanks again to all.

Is there something that could have disabled my pci slots from running video cards when I installed the video card on the pci-e slot. I hope that's enough detail. Restored to default, on change.I don't think it even gets to the point of loading BIOS. When I installed it, the pc refused to boot.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530, Intel Q6600 cpu. 3 Gb RAM. 600 SATA drive on RAID 0. I had 5.28 BIOS so I upgraded it. I flashed my Bios a couple of years ago before installing SP2 for XP. I've switched slots and cards and all combinations of my existing cards/slots work, but the new card shuts the machine down from any slot it is in.

The machine hasn't been over-clocked or hot-rodded at all.
