Now my current power supply that I just got today is a 520W Dynex w/ +12v x2. Same PSU my brother uses in his PC. So I switch out the old PSU, put in the Dynex, connect everything and MAKE SURE that everything is plugged in correctly, including the card, and boot up the PC with DVI connected to the Radeon. No signal. Switch to the onboard, I get signal. HOWEVER, this time the GPU fan stayed spinning all the way through boot-up and while I was using the PC. Put in the CD, still no detection. ATI autodriver finder, still no detection. Then a few minutes later the GPU fan stopped spinning. I looked at it, and just like last time, it was twitching back and forth like clockwork. So I turn off the PC, check all the plugs, boot up again, same thing except GPU fan stayed spinning and didn't stop. Still no detection, though. So for giggles, I updated the BIOS. I noticed that when I turned off the PC and went into the BIOS and entered ASUS E-Z Flash, the GPU fan stopped spinning. Then after updating the BIOS, the PC restarts, GPU fan isn't spinning. Enter the BIOS, GPU fan starts spinning again.
The thing has a mind of its own. I have no idea whether the card is bad, or if it's the mobo's PCI-E x16 slot or what. Nobody I've talked to has a clue. So, I'm coming to GeeksToGo; the community that has never failed to solve my problems for me. Any ideas? I read something about jumpers on the MOBO?
PS: If it matter, my mobo is an ASUS M4N78 PRO DDR2. 4 GBs RAM (One stick 667mhz the other 1066mhz) and an Athlon II 2.1GHz Duo Core. Other power consumers include an IDE CD/DVD+/-RW and a 500GB SATA HDD.
