    Default Bought new graphics card (R7 260X) motherboard shows code '97'

    Hello,


    I bought a Gigabyte Radeon R7 260X on sale and I'm hoping to replace the HD 6670 that is in there...
    I put the new card in and plugged in the pci-e cable (power supply is an antec 620 high current gamer) and the only thing that shows is the code '97' right on the motherboard (monitors do not turn on). I tried all the recommended steps by asrock (clear cmos, etc.).


    Motherboard: 880G Pro 3 P1.40


    Any thoughts guys? Is there a beta bios that I can use to fix this issue?


    Thanks for your help!

    Seen a lot of this compatibility issue with the newer R series cards.

    I'd suggest you contact ASRock directly concerning this as I'm not aware of any BETA's.
