Sure You're Got ALL The Right Drivers?

In reply to: HELP! I just setup a new phenom quad 64 bit NO,video

The main one that comes to mind is the chipset driver for the AMD processor.. It's the one that causes the various motherboard slots, such as the you video card slot, to be correctly recognized by the operating system.. Chipset/motherboard driver,, correct BIOS, correct video and audio drivers, ethernet drivers, etc.

Hope this helps.
