HD 5830 problems

Recommended Posts

Son in law was not sure if his PSU was bad or his vid Card so i put his Gigabyte 5830 in my machine and we discovered his card was bad. When i put my Sapphire HD 5830 back in i was getting 6 FPS in games i normally get 40-60.

I have uninstalled the CCC and reinstalled.. Made sure i had the latest Direct X ran DXDIAG. Checked tpo make sure the card was seated properly.... Nothing

is it possible his bad card screwed up my Motherboard?

yes it is... I'd take a spare drive if you have one and load windows fresh to it and then try it just to rule out it didnt booger windows somehow...


also try cleaning the cards contacts with a pencil eraser just to make sure its getting good contact but yes i have had bad cards fry good boards when testing parts in other rigs... hopefully that isnt your case.
