thermaltake 250w express powersupply help.

by keabler / February 15, 2007 10:21 AM PST

so i already kinda tried to contact thermaltake. i had their little tech support form filed out but the submit button wouldnt do any thing. There are some emails that i thought i remember seeing in the manual and i will probably send them an email tonight but i was wondering if any of you guys could help me on this one. So i just purchased a thermaltake 250w dedicated vga power supply and i got it installed *correctly i checked every thing over twice already.

ok so heres my problem when i first went to power up my pc it got stuck at the windows startup screen with the little bar that flashes across the screen. i tried some stuff and made sure every thing was connected correctly but it still was messed up. i tried to start in safe mode and it started up which confused me. so after more tinkering i decided to repair (which didnt help) and eventually reinstall windows. so i got windows reinstalled and started dling drivers and reinstalling programs when i got to the driver for my vid cards. (i am running x64 pro with 2 6800gs vid cards on a a8n sli deluxe mobo) while my vid card driver was installing my computer restarted it self and the problem i had before happened again it froze at the windows load screen ( i tried to install the newest driver and the one that came with my vid cards). I then proceeded to restart under the last config that worked and it fired right up but the driver was not installed so im positive its the driver that is messing my computer up can any one suggest any thing or have a solution?
