Intel DH77KC with MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G problem



I've bought this videocard and installed it in my computer. I already had the mobo and it was working fine.

now, when I start the computer, the mobo crashes.

I see the intel mobo logo with the three options (f2, f7, f10 for boot options) but at this screen the mobo crashes. the f2 f7 f10-buttons don't work at this point.

afther like 3 minutes the screen disappears and a blinking "- "(short stripe) appears in the top left corner on my screen. I cannot do anything here, only to shut the computer down by removing the power.

if I start without the videocard installed. everythings works fine (with an Intel Core i5 3450)

I think my mobo is outdated for my new videocard but I cannot find an software upgrade for my mobo for this problem.

I don't know what to do to get this videocard working, please help me

thank you in advance.

Hello Hans12345, thanks for joining the Intel motherboard Community.

For this kind of behavior I would recommend you to please check the following troubleshooting steps:

  • Try using a bigger power supply.
  • Test another Video card on the board
  • Check with MSI if the video card is compatible with 7th series chipset.
  • Check for a BIOS update on the motherboard.
