Was not thinking

Hello again, i was attempting to install my old EVGA 260 into my backup machine, and i went into the Award BIOS and turned off the onboard Video, well i was not thinking that the 260 needed 2 power inputs, and i am now unable to get back into the BIOS to re enable the on board video, i am getting 1 long and 2 short beeps, signaling a possible video card problem ? i forgot how to reset the BIOS to factory default settings , i would like to get back to the on-board video until l decide on a new power supply ,

thanks in advance

Hello Pantz,

After removing the graphics card, you should be able to clear CMOS to reset your BIOS settings back to default.

Hope this helps,

Hello again , well thanks to Brinks i was able to get my backup machine up and running, another question, i am planning to put my old phenom 2 965 BE into my backup machine, with the EVGA 260, i currently have a very old antec 500 PSU, which is due for replacement, since i am adding a CPU and Video card.

Any suggestions on a new power supply, i have limited fund, but i would like something that can handle the power of the new CPU and GPU

Thanks in advance

The EVGA 260 requires at least a 500 Watt PSU with two 6-pin or 6+2-pin PCI-E connectors.

I'd say nothing below 650 Watts for a PSU to be safe, but be sure to use the PSU calculator below to add in all your other hardware to see what it recommends as well.

Thinking of going to SSD
I'm really thinking of making the jump to SSD. I have my eyes on the OCZ Agility 2 60GB. (I have the current drive and additional 160GB drive to backup all my files, etc.) Space on the other drives is NOT an issue. I'm using 42GB of 260 right now on my WD drive. I'd put the OCZ as my...

Seriously thinking about getting an SSD
I'm currently considering the benefits of getting an SSD. There are certain circumstances keeping me from getting one at the moment, but as soon as I can buy one without going broke, I plan to buy a 30-32GB one for the OS and use my current HDD for file storage. If you had to choose between the two...

Thinking about a new SSD
Im thinking of getting around a 250GB SSD. Do they last any longer or shorter than HDDs? Will they make my computer faster? The big question: Is it worth it, or should I go with a 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD?

thinking about SSD
Hello again, Looking to move my primary W7 machine to SSD in March. Plan on a small one, probably 32gigs for W7, CS4 Design Premium, etc. etc. Is this too small, do I have to go 64gigs? Also, most of the reviews out there, at least on New Egg are average except for the Intel ones. Any...

Windows Seven, should be renamed Windows. Just simply Windows. No suffix. No XP, no Vista, no codenames, no numbers. Just simply Windows. This OS is by far the best I have used. Sure it has some bugs here and there, but that's what happens with Betas. It could be: Windows Basic Windows...
