hello again... i havent decided what to do...
but only today i notice that my power supply is only 300w... and in some "simulators" to see the power you need, with i have on my pc.. the results always come that i should have a power supply over 550W.
could this be another reason?????
i also wanted to ask, since ive seen in some foruns, how to install 2 graphics boards? since i have one 7600gt 512mb, that i m not using at the moment...
could someone give me some insight on this?
thnks

if both cards are PCI-E, then its a matter of just installing the 7600 into the other PCI-E 16/8x slot if one is available.

The real important value is the 12v Amps, wattage can be really deceptive.

some psu manufacturers have extremely high 5v Amps and low 12v Amps which accounts for the 300w rating, most devices these days require plenty of 12v Amps, so its best to look at the PSU's ratings than just at the Model's wattage.

if it was booting from the DVD, there wouldn't be a windows logo.

make sure your boot order is correct in the bios.

you'd need to apply a boot sector to the usb stick first.
