Windows 7: Problem installing GPU

Ok Steve I eventually found it I was looking in the wrong spot it was something to do system configuration I think. Anyway it had the options of auto PCIE or PCI etc

Well whatever there is no change in the machine still working fine.

I have just had a request too from the dealers to try the new cards in another machine as they think maybe the cards are dead. That would have to be real bad luck having two items down at the same it eh? But by the same token it would explain the grief that it has been giving me / us.

John, that's SOP. Just be sure to remove all the drivers from the machine you put it in. You can reinstall them later. It is rather a PITA, but really the only way to know for sure. I believe you have an AMD card in the SB machine. If that's so, be sure to remove all the drivers with driver sweeper in safe mode. AMD and Nvidia drivers do not get along at all. But in reality, if you get rid of the AMD drivers first, Windows will install a generic graphics driver and you will see a big difference than the experience in the new build without installing Nvidia drivers if the card is OK.

Hum good job you caught me right now Steve because I have been held up looking for my spare Corsair power leads for the 650 and had I not it would have been in there and fired up by now. Gary has probably told you I am a bit of a have it done yesterday / gung ho sort. Have already tried the sound card and it works ok

So I don't know what the go is thee but back to the GPU ok I'll do the drivers in safe mode - although it was pig of a thing to fix when I first got it with all that flipping Catalyst stuff,
But anyhow to look for those leads
(haven't seen the lying around have you LOL!!)

no, I haven't seen your leads, but I do have a few from my HX750 and a full set from my AX850.

Sorry for late reply Steve had to duck out for a while and have been trying since I got back to find those PCI leads for my HX 650 - everything but.

So I think I will have to go into town tomorrow and pick up something even a Molex to PCI adaptor, as I ca see no alternative - the minute I get them home I'll put my hands on those leads I just know I will.

But I can go ahead and uninstall those drivers at least

I'm a little confused. Don't you have a GPU card in the SB machine now that has leads?
Will the ones from the HX1050 fit the hx650?

In a nutshell Gary no and no. The modular leads for the 1050 will not fir the 650. So I am going to have to find a Molex to PCI lead to hook up the power.

Just to clarify the HD 5450 did not need that power lead.

I'm confused. The HX 650 is supposed to come with two PCI-E power connectors. The specs at www.corsair.com could be clearer, but I think that they are both 6+2 pin connectors. That should cover all high-end cards currently on the market. You shouldn't need any Molex-to-PCI-E adapters.

Or is the HX650 as sold in the Southern hemisphere somehow different?

Thanks fellas I rigged up a Molex to the PCI with an adaptor I bought this morning.

However same result chaotic screen and I did remove the ATi stuff first and then installed the Nvidia drivers so looks like a dodgy GPU.

I did try the one that is working in the Ivy Bridge and try it in the Sandy but got nothing at all. I thought perhaps it might be the cable as the cable on the Ivy Bridge had the full set of pins whereas the Sandy monitor cable had the sort where the pins are divided up into little blocks - 3x3 but I then tried the same sort of cable in the Ivy and it works so don't know what went wrong there.

Anyway look thanks for all the help I shall return the faulty card asap.

Oh and Bob mate you haven't sen my room/s of gear - just can't find where I put those cables
