Installed new PSU and GFX and still doesnt work

Ok so pretty much
I bought a Gigabyte 4890 and it didnt boot
so then i installed at 650W Awyun PSU with 48A so that is PLENTY of power for it

But the problem is
I hit the power button everything loads, then it gets to "Starting Windows"
And it just stays there but i hear the sounds of windows loading up through the speakers.

Cheers for any help

Sounds like at this point you just need to get the latest drivers for your video card off the net and install those in safe mode

I just get a "failed to load detection driver" which i assume means i cant install it in safe mode
So any other ideas lol?

You get that from the video card driver installer?

[edit] Looks like the net is FULL of people having that error Probably start slogging though a google search of that error string to start... something to do with having installed then uninstalled the driver previously or something.[/edit]

Well what im trying now is i just put my HIS 3850 back in and installing the latest driver with that
so that just shows it isnt a hard-driver error right?
And hopefully if this works and my 4890 runs other people can be helped

Do not install video card drivers in safe mode. If you can't boot into Windows, remove and replace the card, boot into Windows and attempt to load the drivers.

Let us know what happens.

Also, I have to ask, did you connect the power connector to the card?

Ok i installed the latest driver by using the 3870 in normal windows then i put the 4890 back and tried to load windows but the same thing happened
It got up to the "Starting Windows" froze once the orbs came together
but still heard the booting sounds finish
And yes i do have both the 6pin PCI-e cables connected

Are you sure the card is good?

Also, could you post your system specs?

Thanks
