I have an Abit Va-10 Series Mobo
AMD Athlon 2100+ CPU
1GB DDR RAM
Soundblaster 5.1 Audigy
GeForce 6600 GT 256MB soundcard ( AGP )
sound card got delivered last night .... plugged it in and monitor stayed on standby mode ... re-inserted old Radeon 9000 Series card and monitor worked . upgraded BIOS , uninstalled old Display Adapters ... new card still wouldnt work ..
changed setting think it was BOOT INIT , in BIOS from PCI to AGP restarted ... still didnt work , tried resetting CMOS .. still didnt work ....
anyway noticed that my 400W PSU only supplies 12A when +12V ... decided that must be the problem reckon I needed atleast a 20A for graph card to work .... so bought a 550W PSU with a 20A supply on +12V . connected it up and started it ... machine switches on but then powers off straight away . doesn't even get to POST . If i put old PSU in it powers on fine.
will I need to upgrade MOBO ??
