  1. Hey yal'l I need your help~

    My Pc won't detect my video card (Radeon 1900xt 512 mb) when I turn the power on. Usually when I start up my PC i could hear a beep once I pressed the power button, but now it delay for 10 sec before it start to get the "beeep" sound.

    I had to use the on-board video slot instead just so to see my desktop.

    My system spec:
    AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice 2000MHz HT Socket 939 Processor
    BIOSTAR TForce6100-939 Socket 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
    POWERCOLOR 1900XT512OEM Radeon X1900XT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
    CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit

    Did you plug in the auxiliary power connector on the end of the graphics card?

    update: got the problem fixed :-D
    I open up the case, tighten any wire that link to the VC and move some obstacles HD wire that was touching the VC, start her up and it work again.

    Hopefully it will stay that way for 3 more years plzzzz :(

    on-board is a life saver, but i couldn't play any of my games like NWN2, Two Worlds etc, its so slooow.
