Just got my 460 in the mail from Newegg a bit ago.
But I'm running into a problem and I'm not sure what to do.
My system won't post with the new card OR the old one now.
Perhaps I did something wrong, here's what I did:
Booted the comp up with old card in it. Downloaded the latest Nvidia driver.
Went into Device Manager and uninstalled the old Nvidia driver.
Ran a Driver Cleaner for all Nvidia files. (running an ASRock 939 Dual board so no NForce issues there)
Turned off the comp.
Took the old card out, placed the 460 in with Both Power connectors connected in the rear.
Made sure all drives and power cords and such were firmly connected throughout the system.
Turned on the comp. All components appear to have power. The 460's fan is running as are all case fans and such.
But it never completes the boot process (i'm assuming)
There is no beeps or problem sounds.
Just no signal to the monitor.
Also, my dvd/cd rom drive keeps clicking like it's trying to read a disc...but the drive is empty. I can hit the open button and it only comes out 1/4 of the way.
I tried replacing the old 8800GT and the same exact thing. So I'm guessing it's not the 460 or the PS (Rosewill 550w btw)
I'm thinking the problem might be the fact that I uninstalled the driver from the Device Manager window. Had never done that before, normally used Add /Remove Programs and then used the driver cleaner. But I'd read a recent post that discussed the process of adding a new card and "believed" it had suggested the Device Manager process after going there to see what version of the driver was being used.
So ANY and ALL ideas, suggestions would be very Welcome lol
