Hey guys, first post to the forum, can't seem to find help anywhere else so i'll try here.
I got a new gfx card for xmas, a 9800GTX+. I plugged it in my old crappy mobo, what make im not sure but a Gigabyte and my computer would alternate between either: turning on for about 10 seconds without posting, screen stays blank, then turning off OR turning on, doesn't post, then does nothing.
Assuming it was just my motherboard, I bought a few upgrades but im still having the same problem except sometimes the light on the monitor, to indicate wether its engaged or not, will light up for 1-5 seconds, then computer turns off again.
THe specs im running at the moment are:
600W Vantec iON2+ PSU (NEW)
ASUS GeForce 9800GTX+ (NEW)
1GB DDR2 Kingston RAM (NEW)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 80GB
Intel P4 3.0ghz (I don't know the exact model)
Gigabyte GA-EG31MF-S2 motherboard (NEW)
I suspect, after upgrading the PSU, mobo and RAM, and still no relief, that either: the cpu is imcompatable with the motherboard OR the psu is not sufficient enough to run my system.
My old PSU was a stock 350W and my old gfx card was a Sapphire Radeon X300.
Any infomation is appricated as this is killing me
