rx470 wont boot

Question asked by mtiller on Apr 3, 2017



trying to install a new rx470 on my sons PC and the PC wont boot with it installed, no POST even.  Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD7 with the latest BIOS although that's not saying much as it dates from 2010 I think.


I know that the card supoorts PCIe-3 and the M/B is only PCIe-2.  I don't know if that would cause an issue.  No the M/B doesn't saupport UEFI, not sure if that is required or whether the card should cope.


Ifr it's simply that the baord is too old and wont cope,  then can someone make a suggestion about anAM3/3+ M/B that would work.


Any help much apprecated.
