I have ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 Mobo and wanted to upgrade my AGP card to an Inno3D GeForce 8800GT.
On power up there is no internal Beep and no video output. I have Googled the living daylights and found 3 possible issues.
1. The 8800GT is a "Gen2" card and the chipset only supports "Gen1". You have to get a flash from the card producer to downgrade it to "Gen1".
2. The PCI-e 16x slot on this mobo is in fact only 4x and the card needs at least 8x to run.
3. Nvidia have released a BIOS upgrade which addresses the issue. The version is 1.50A. This is a link on another forum by an individual and they offer a link for the download. However, when I check the ASRock site, they have 1.50 but not 1.50A. They actually go upto 1.80 but none of the issues that their upgrades cover mention the 8800 range, so I am warey of getting a BIOS from anybody other than the mobo manufacturer.
Has anybody else encountered this problem? I have mailed the support sights for both the card and the mobo but we all know how long and drawn out that process can be, lol.
Any help appreciated.
