Thread: S-Series GA-EP45-DS5 Motherboard problem

    Default S-Series GA-EP45-DS5 Motherboard problem

    I just bought a GA-EP45-DS5 Motherboard and put it together in my computer, but when I got the computer starting the screen wont show anything meaning the graphic card is not connecting correctly to the PCI slot. I have a nVidia 8800 GTS graphic card, i tried putting in my 6600 and still the monitor would not work. I've done these things a quite a few times before (setting together a computer) but this problem just goes behond me. I have everything else connected correctly (as far as i know of) and the GPU just wont work! Yes I put the cable in from the PSU into the 8800 if u were wondering.

    I might be missing something since I had a 2005 model motherboard before this one, any ideas?

    And, yes I RTFM :P

    That 8800 GTS eat enormous quantity of ampères. That 450-550w PSU could be on limit (or below) powering the video card plus the new MB.
    I could suggest to test the new mounting with a more powerful PSU, if possible, with one 12v single rail 50 ampères output. Avoid double rails, they are very difficult to balance the current available to your system.

    Yea but it had the same problem with a GeForce 6600, making me thing it wasn't the PSU... Plus I doublt the computer would start up with everything but the graphic card? Wouln't it cut off the power if it was too much stress for the PSU?

    That 6600 also eats almost 16 ampères.
    If I were you, would test with another PSU. Borrow one from a friend no need to buy just for testing purposes.

    I dropped of the computer at the Tech store where i bought the motherboard from, so its all up to them now :) I was also told that the 8pin connector near the CPU was ment to be plugged in from the PSU, something i did not know since that was new to me. Shame i cant test it tho since I dont have my PC anymore :P

    So, my guess was half correct, was something related to the PSU.
    But do not be worried about, everyone already did that someday somewhere, including myself...

    Good luck.
