I recently just purchased the MSI R9 390 to replace my old MSI 6870, and after installing the card my machine would power up, however, no display. Watching the POST code indicator on my board I noticed the sequence stops on POST 95, which I believe means it passed and is actually stalled on POST "EB - Calling Video BIOS". I did end up replacing my old card and the machined boots just fine.
Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?
i7-860 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1156
Intel Media DP55WG Desktop Motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB DDR3 1600
OCZ ProXStream 1000W
MSI Radeon HD 6870 Twin Frozr II ( Upgraded to MSI R9 390 )
Samsung SSD pro 128g
WD Caviar Black 1TB
95 - Keyboard Self Test
EB - Calling Video BIOS ( I haven't seen this display, however, this is the code that comes next in typical sequence according to intels site)
58 - Resetting USB bus
Additionally, at one point I did have it displaying a 'POST 58', and then I powered down and reset my CMOS. Now it just stops at 'POST 95'.
*Update* - I discovered I was using an extremely old BIOS version and updated it. I am now getting display to trigger however, I get stuck at the boot screen with an "EB - Calling video bios".
Thanks for the reply Scott.
I had actually discovered another post where you had suggested this, and so I went ahead and tried it, however, I wasn't able to get past the bios boot screen. Unfortunately, it sounds like it may be time to upgrade, however, I did get about 5-6 years out of the board and chip.
That said I would be curious to know if this something specific to AMD cards? Or do the newest generation Nvidia cards pose the same issue?
Another feature that would affect is that the PCIe revision for the Motherboard is 2.0 and your new GPU has PCIe 3.0 this would stop the GPU from working at its full capacity.
