HD 3850 no video!
I just build this computer last night and tried to install windows on it but I didnt have the key handy so I waited till today to do it. When i turned the computer on there was no video. So I took the card out and put it back in while checking to see if all the connections were good. It still didnt work so i took it and put it in the older pci-e slot on my board. With it still not working I took my 7950gt and put it in and I got a picture. The computer acts fine with the HD 3850 but I get no picture. Any ideas? I could return it easy but I just want to use my new computer! Lol

must be a bad card, so just return it and use the 7950 for now...

also try and install drivers for the 3850 before you put the card in.

-we have the same card and cpu. :D

Haha yeah. I hope you have stock cooling so I can see what we hit on overclocks. Rofl. Ok in a little bit I will throw the 7950gt back in that pc and install 3850 drivers. It doesnt give me a picture on post though so idk. I will obviously rma it but i dont want to. Took them 8 days to send it to begin with. :(
