Thread: Simple upgrade to WinfastA400 doesnt work!




  1. #1

    Default Simple upgrade to WinfastA400 doesnt work!

    I bought a Winfast A400 GT (6800GT) and swapped it with my 9800se after removing the ATI drivers. When booting the system stops after about 10secs showing a DOS? screen where it has detected PNP and my Primary and secondary drives. I couldnt access the bios. I thought the card might be faulty and found a severed Fan wire. Overclockers immediately replaced the card.

    However the same thing happens with the new card, I see the winfast info screen then my motherboard logo then it stops on the drives PNP info screen with a flashing cursor.

    My motherboard is an ASUS P4B533. The power supply is a Targan 480W.
    I can only think my Motherboard is an AGP 4x, whilst the card is AGP8x but I dont really know.

    Can anyone help.

    After a deluge of good advice from the tech heads here I just sent the card back for a refund.

    You should have cleared the CMOS and it probably would have at least let you into the bios. This forum is not used very much and they don't seem to answer for new posters very much.
