Re: PCI-E x16 running at x1 on new GTX 280
I tried setting the freq to 101 and the voltage 1.42 but it didn't work, also I put it to default in the bios , again, it didn't work.
I seem to be getting the VGA not detected beep codes a few times, then followed by the one beep (VGA detected) when it restarts sometimes. I checked that it was seated properly and it looks good, also all the pins on the bit that goes in the slot look good.
Could it be that it's a faulty card?
edit: I just put in my old card and it's working fine, I may send the 280 back.
