Please refer to the CROSSFIRE ARRRGGGHHH post.
Sorry for the new topic, just wanted to change the title, as it has moved on from just a card problem.

Can you only use PCI-E 2.0 x16 cards with PCI-E 2.0 x16 motherboard slots?

Are you using all brand new components except for the hard drive?

  BaboonBoy22 17:51 11 Jan 2009

RAM modules, Optical drives and Floopy

... everything else is new

Take out the Cmos battery(silverous coin type battery) and unplug the main power cable(or switch off from the wall outlet).

Wait for at least 3-5 minutes and put it back on and turn on power and try.(you might have to try it for a little bit longer if it doesn't work first time round)

You've got two threads running where you are asking the same questions - makes it very difficult for all concerned trying to help you.

Stick to one thread only.

I suppose you're right about the two running threads but I'm not familiar with crossfire(I'm on Sli) so I can't help him with the first thread.

It looks like it may not be just the crossfire problem alone since the motherboard doesn't boot up at all, let it roll on and see how he goes.

I apologised for starting a new thread at the top, as my problem has moved on from a crossfire problem, and I thought the title needed changing, if I could do that I would. I dont mean to hog the forum
