It took me almost two hours to install this card. Granted, some of it was my fault... read most of it. The case was just... very dusty. I thought about bringing in my generator but it's heavy and would probably give the oldest pet a heart attack so i picked up a can of air, spent 30 minutes blowing that out. Then the card wouldn't post, so I spent at least 20 minutes uninstalling drivers. The card still wouldn't post with the ever so helpful post code of 97... something wrong with the graphic card you say... really. So install the old one, and it's fine. Then goes in the new one again, break a nail there trying to pull those stupid PCI-E power cords out.
Was just thinking about trying to replace the PSU with one of my backups when I realize just how old my BIOS is. I've always been a don't fix it if it isn't broke gals when it comes to updating the BIOS. And what do you know, one of them has VGA compatibility fix on it. Great... well at least my case and my desk hasn't been cleaner in over year.
