Sorry that my first post is a whinge for help, but this has been driving me daft for a couple of months.
I have a system with an Epox 8HDA3+ mobo. (full spec below) I bought a Gigabyte 6600GT silentpipe (no fans, yay) for it. With this card in, the system fans spin, the lights come on but no boot. it won't even post. There is a diagnostic LCD on the board which sticks at FF (=trying to boot, according to the manual).
It isn't the board, because if I put the XFX6800LE out of my other system in it, everything is fine.
It isn't a fault on the card, because that works perfectly in the other system.
I know the easy option is just to run things that way round, but 1) it's annoying, and 2) I bought the gigabyte because it's quiet and it has vivo.
Any help appreciated.
