    Asrock 4core dual VSTA + 8800GTS

    I have a 4core motherboard and just bought an EVGA 8800gts to replace my 9800 pro AGP.
    Problem is every time I install the drivers for Nvidia in windows, screen goes blank, and PC crashes.

    I have dual boot winxp and vista, and it does the same on both.
    On vista however the image effs up first then it crashes.
    Also the bios screen and all the pre-windows screens load up very slowly compared to the 9800

    Anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

    Its a tagan 480W. I've read plenty of people with less than that running them. And i only have E4300,1 dvd and 1 HDD

    and yes I have it plugged in. Shouldn't it not even post if its not plugged in?

    Just been googling and found out its not on the asrock compatibility list, but what would make it incompatible?

    so i guess it was the motherboard.

    Just about to advise a mobo change

    The Asrock Dual boards are a bit 'el cheapo' and justice to the card would not be done on a board like that.

    Glad you are all sorted.
