This is my PC config:
- Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2
- i3 2100 CPU
- 2 x 4GB Adata DDR3 RAM
- 300 Watt SMPS (PSU)
- 160 GB Adata SSD
- 500 GB SATA 5400RPM Seagate
- 40 GB SATA 5400RPM Samsung
I have been using this PC for over a year, with absolutely no issues. I decided to add a graphics card so I could hook up another monitor to extend my display.
I got a Zotac geforce gt 610 synergy edition 2GB, hooked it up but when I tried to start the pc it just showed me the motherboard logo screen. nothing after that. When I tried to boot again a couple of times it gave me a 1 long beep and 2 short beeps.
My system uses an AMI Bios where 1 long 2 short beeps means:
Failure in video system: a checksum error was encountered in video BIOS ROM, or a horizontal retrace failure has been encountered.
Q: Is this because of my PSU?
I am not sure, because the card specifications say min 300 Watts PSU (and max 29 Watt used), and I have that.
Also my motherboard has only one PCIe x16
I tried removing the graphics card and going back to my onboard graphics, the strange thing that I see is, it just waits on the Motherboard logo, until I press F12 and select the hard disk to boot too.
