Hey all. I have a XFX GeForce 8800GT, and it's causing me some trouble. The card is plugged in and running (I can hear the fan), but the motherboard refuses to let it be the primary video device. I figured that it was one of those PCIe issues, so I flashed the BIOS. That didn't help, so I looked in the CMOS for something I could use to change the primary video device. I switched it to PCIEX, and rebooted. Still no output from the 8800GT. I tried flashing the BIOS again, this time with an unlocked BIOS, wondering if there is some other setting for this. Nothing.
Any ideas as to what is wrong? Thanks!
I figured that it might be good to tell my system's specs.
My computer is a junky gateway GT5056 with 2 GB ram, an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800, a Foxconn C51GU01 motherboard (as the title states), a 250 GB hard drive, and an onboard GeForce 6100 GPU, along with my unworking 8800GT.
