:cry: I just wanted to try the other team and it was actually beneficial since the card is covered by the local warranty whereas the 5870 was bought from compUSA so if anything goes wrong with the card i'd have to find a way to ship it to their office in cali to avail of the lifetime warranty...
Yeah, sprayed some of it on the gold fingers of the card. The contacts looks new by the way as the card was only purchased locally around march 2012.
Also tried resetting the cmos. The only thing that i havent done is to flash the bios to an older version.
Yep, i tried alcohol and i even bought a can of contact cleaner and gave the mobo a bath especially the x16 pcie slot.
Tried what you suggested and the 9600gt booted at x16..i tried the 560 in my sister's desktop and it was at x16, also tried it in my office computer also at x16 :eek...
I was getting tired of the driver issues with my old ATI card. I swapped it with a friend's GTX 560. I just wanted to try nvidia for a change, heard that they are faring better with their drivers.
I uninstalled all the ati driver and used driver sweeper to remove the leftover files.
Yeah, tried it in the 2nd slot and the it runs in x8 which is more acceptable but its proximity to the psu causes it to heat up on load.
I tried using my old video cards on the 1st slot and they are running at x16.
9600gt and ati 2400xt
I need help with an issue that i encountered when i changed my video card to a Palit GTX 560 Ti earlier this month.
I noticed that when playing SC2, the settings defaulted to MEDIUM though i'm sure that it should be at ULTRA. I checked GPU-Z to check whether the clocks on the gpu...
I am planning on upgrading my memory modules.
Will this RAM http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=355&c1=1&c2=3
be compatible with this board? the rams are not listed in the supported memory modules in the Biostar site...
Oh man you're a life saver. Thank you! :respect:
That's just what i needed..damn, i was way off the mark. Thought that the bios chip was in the front side of the pcb. Turns out that it was located at the back!
Now i can finally be able to short the 1 and 8 pin so that it can be detected...
Thanks guys, though i've already seen that image. Ill try cleaning it up with photoshop.
Nah, image is too pixelized the way it is.
I've sent a pm to w1zz, hope he gets to read it being the busy person he is. crosses fingers lol.
Yeah, tried reading the label on the chip. Strained my eyes.
The problem is that the numbers are illegible even after using reading glasses/ magnifying lens.
Even tried looking for large format images on the net.
I do know that it's supposed to be close to the gpu but the i am not sure...
This is my very first time posting here at TPU.
Here's my problem, i recently acquired this used ATI Radeon 4870 from my cousin where he then said that the card was incorrectly flashed and would not post after.
I've tried flashing it thru DOS with ATIFlash using the onboard...
