Display goes blank during boot with SP605

Jump to solution

I need a recommended PC for working with the SP605 evaluation board. I purcahsed a computer to work with this board, but during the boot process, before I see the windows log-in dialog, the computer display is disabled. I tried using two different display adapters with the same result. If you log-in remotely the display adapter will not even show up in device manager when the SP605 is installed.

 

The same SP605 board worked on two other computers, so I am not sure what the issue is.

 

Is there a recommended PC for working with this board?

I am using Windows 7, 64-bit, which is supported.

Are you generally ok with any standard PC running a supported OS?

Thank you. I guess that I have unfortunately found the only bad configuration, and I will just purcahse a standard Dell PC and work with that.

 

For anyone else: I don't recommend using an intel Z77 chipset, i7 processor and SP605 motherboard in combination. All other configurations seem to work.

 

I appreciate your help,

 

Chris

Hi Chi,

 

If the Mother board is compliant of PCIe spec then it should not be a problem with detection and working with SP605.

Check your mother board has any options where the slot on which you are connecting is dedicated for a Graphics card or some thing like that.

This could be a possible reason.

 

Regards,

Koti reddy

Thank you for the recommendation. I have tried using the cards in different slots, and even swapping the two cards results in the same behavior. 

I am going to give up on this PC, and use the card in a different computer. I do have a working configuration which is sufficient for me at this point.

 

Thanks,

 

Chris
