Problem with new graphics cards

  1. Hey all,

    My new computer is a "Medion Akoya P5202-E" With art number: 10017445
    (windows 8)
    It has an NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 graphic card.
    Original Psu 350w

    My old computer is a "Emachine EL1700"
    (windows vista)
    Original Psu: 220w

    I have bought a Psu from 430w (to have a 6 pin connector for the GTX 650ti graphic card)
    When installing this Psu in my EL1700 both graphic cards works fine

    Now I have 2 brand new graphic cards:
    1: NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 630
    2: NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 650TI (Asus)
    (Both cards WORKS on my old computer!)

    Now the problem:
    When installing the new Psu 430w into my medion computer everything works fine.
    When I remove the graphic card from my new computer and put the 630 or the 650 in it the computer wont start (getting 1 long beep and 2 x short beep) this means problem with graphics card. Now I have retested my graphic cards in my old computer and they both works 100% fine. so there is a problem probably something within my computer settings? I have searched and searched but couldn't find any solution! so thats why I'm posting it here

    I am from Belgium so forgive me for my bad grammar!

    Any suggestion will be tried and I am 100% sure all cables are connected probably when I need to install my GT630 I don't even need to unplug any cables so thats not the problem!

    Wait. So when you put the 630 and 650 in your Medion, it fails?

    The new computer comes with a GT 620, when I try to use my new GT 630 or GTX 650ti it starts beeping, but they work on an ancient computer

    With the 350W PSU?

    Yeah, sorry man, wasnt thinking! It is odd since the 650Ti requires 400W and the GT630 doesnt even require a power connector. I am actually not sure :confused:. This is very odd.

    UEFI BIOS is just more interactive since it allows you to use your mouse and keyboard.

    That is not a UEFI BIOS. Medion uses cheaper boards since they are a 3rd party, so they wont have UEFI.

    If your mouse and keyboard dont work, then it is fake. I have never heard of Medion.

    Problem solution:
    first do change your OS to win 7

    That is odd. I wonder why changing the OS would effect anything.

    I Just want to say a massive thanks to you sir for helping solve my issue which was this. I bought a cheap home pc (Medion A8 5500). This came with intergrated Radeon HD7560d Graphics and windows 8. I had a quite good graphics card in my old pc (GTX560ti) which I wanted to install in my new pc. I was having endless problems trying to install this card. I searched and searched and found lots of options and tried them all(not going to bore you with them all) but not one of the suggested solutions worked. This one did and all is well. Thanks you very much!!
