    Hello peeps.

    Today, i just got my super OC Black edition 7770 gfx card.
    Problem is tho, that whenever i install the driver for it and boot my system it shuts down immediately after pretty much loading windows, or at the login screen.

    I dont really know what could be causing this, since the recommended PSU req. is 550W, and that's what i have in my pc.

    My specs are:

    PSU: Corsair VX550W
    Motherboard: H55M-D2H
    CPU: i5-760 2.80GHZ
    Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium
    4gb ram

    I have tried disconnecting all non essential equipments, leaving only the mouse, keyboard, and monitor, and the internet left, but it still did it.

    Anything else you wanna know, just ask me, other than that, I'd really love it if anyone could come up with some suggestions of what i could do to check out the problems, and narrow down the issue of this.

    As far as I can tell it may be the PSU, but it does say 550W recommended. :)

    Will it boot into the BIOS? Will it boot into Safe Mode?

    If not, and the only change is the video card, then I would suspect the video card is faulty, or as you pointed out, the power supply.

    It can boot into safe mode and bios just fine, but in safe mode, i dont think it uses the actual card, but rather the onboard, making it able to go to safe mode with no issues, i just tried with my brothers 750W psu, and it worked fine, so it is my psu :)

    You can tell which card/chipset is used based on where you have connected the monitor. The onboard chipset has it's own output ports as does the video card. If you have the monitor connected to the video card, then you are using the video card chipset.

    Cool. Glad you could figure it out.
