Hey All,

I am pulling my hair out over this one. I ordered a new Sapphire HD 3650 graphics card. The first one I got was completely dead (no signal to monitor). So, I RMA'd it, and got a replacement. But, the replacement went dark only a minute or two after installation!

What could I be doing wrong? I can find no compatibility issues. My mobo is an older one (Asus P4S800D-X), and I am running a 500w Corsair power supply (34 amps on the 12v line). I have installed plenty of these in the past, and this had never happened. I just want to be able to get the full 1920x1080 resolution of my new HP 2210m monitor (a lot of scrimping and saving involved).

Any ideas? I'm desperate.
