Thank you for posting your question
My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be assisting you with this issue
What I would suggest trying is start up the machine with the lower end graphics card
Then load the drivers for the higher end card.After doing that shut down the machine and install the higher end card again and try starting up.
Do you know if the card requires additional power outside of what is supplied by the motherboard ?
i do not have other card now. no other power needed
i think i loaded drivers when in other card
why would i have a problem when a shop started with this card no problem and without drivers
card has ix 6 pin from psu
The shop was able to get it to work in this system without any issues?
Have you tried booting into the advanced boot menu by continually tapping f8 until when you turn the machine on. Once the advanced boot menu comesup try booting into safe mode.
a shop was able to use the card only on their machine. i have loaded drivers but still no picture.i know by using another borrowed card that the system boots up but no picture with 6790 card. i will try f8 as advised by you.
Were you able to try booting into safe mode?
I cannot get a picture on monitor with 6790 card no matter what I do. The system boots up into windows but no picture, fan on card is working. I have updated the drivers using borrowed card( in same slot). I need the problem solved before paying. or refund me please. I am a pensioner and need help.
I used you problem as an example in my A+ course. We checked with the manufacturer and determined that you may not have a big enough power supply to handle the peak draw for the system. A 650W PS is recommended for systems that consistently draw 500W or less. The video Card you selected for your system draws at peak (start up) 249Watts of power which is half of the recommended for your power supply. Using the rule total wattage requirements multiplied by 1.3 would yield a power supply rated for your system. Based on what you stated was in the system, Given the Motherboard, SD Drive Processor/Fan and additional HDD and not taking into account other fans or CD/DVD/BluRay. We feel that the power requirements of the system exceed the power supply's ability to provide consistent power at start up. This is why the system works with a lesser card.
If you feel our answer was appropriate and correct please accept the answer.
What have you done in the BIOS setup? When you set this system up did you enable Crossfire or NVIDA settings?
If you can get to the BIOS screen under Advanced check the following:
PCI Express X16_3 slot (black) bandwidth [Auto]
Allows you to select the PCI Express X16_3 slot (black) bandwidth.
[Auto] PCIeX16_3 slot runs at X1 mode for system resource optimization. (PCIeX1_2 will be disabled.)
[X4 mode] PCIeX16_3 slot runs at X4 mode for high performance support. (USB3_34, eSATA ports, PCIeX1_1, PCIeX1_2 will be disabled.)
[X1 mode] PCIeX16_3 slot runs at X1 mode with all slots enabled. (USB3_34 will be disabled.)
Since this card worked in another machine and it is PCIe 2.1 which slot do you have the card installed into. Normally you would install the card closest to thwe CPU but with this motherboard that may not be the real case.
There is a BIOS update on the Site dated 4/27 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P67_PRO/#download
Supposed to fix some issues. When you boot with lesser card, can you set the set the BIOS to minimal settings and install new card. Do you get any kind of screen action at all?
You can try this: A drastic CMOS Refresh to see if this helps
Unplug Power Supply
Hold power button for 10 seconds till capacitors discharge
Remove CMOS Battery
Wait at least 30 Minutes before replacing battery
Restart system with 6070 in place
While system is off, Re seat CPU and RAM inspect sockets for damage
Make sure MB is not touching case anywhere other than back plate
While I still hold to my original theory that the power supply is too small for this card and system, these are the other fixes that I have found for your problem. All PC builds that I have seen online using this configuration seemed concerned about intermittent hangs when using the 650 PSU
Hope this helps.
