Upgrading to the Radeon 6850 HD [Error]
I just now received a Radeon 6850 HD, excited i decided to rush down, and set-up the Card into the Computer. Alas, nothing worked.
Here's the specs of the computers motherboard and power supply. Is something wrong?...
Ive determined the power supply isnt sufficient but i dont want to miss anything else...
Newegg.com - MSI 785GM-E65 AM3 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Newegg.com - LOGISYS Computer PS480D-BK 480W ATX12V Power Supply Supply
Also, we have this power supply lying around. Will it work?

Well thats your problem, your current power supply is not only Under powered for that card, its also a junk brand PSU as well.
not sure on the NSpire, never heard of them before, so can't comment really, though on paper it looks like it should be good enough, but I wouldn't try it until one of the other guys can comment.
Whats the rest of the system specs? (CPU, RAM, Hard drives, etc)i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green

Processor: AMD AthlonII x4
RAM: 3.75 GB
Thats all i know off the top of my head, i say that because i now have a new problem.
With the new power supply it began to work like a charm. No issues.
Though, i tried to run a monitor off of the Radeon and the integrated graphics card on the motherboard. Seperatly... It crashed the computer and im being given a [Reboot and Select proper Boot device.]
I have no cd... I did some research else where and it describes some button pushing in the BIOS.
Problem is, it gives me a press any button to continue option.... None of the 'F10' keys work.
Did i totally destroy my hard drive?
What should i do...?
Wow... these problems are coming and going faster then you can shake a stick at. Probably user error though xD It went up fine after i rebooted it on the computers' power button. The one your supposed to push. I dont know.
Let me know if i missed something x.x Please lol. I have alot of money in this thing for a Teenager x.x

It is pretty hard to mess up your hard drive with anything you are doing.
Where are we now?
Are you running the on-board and the 6850 at the same time.
Not all boards can do that.
There are no buttons in the BIOS. there are lots of setting though.
You can reset the BIOS to default.
You can disable the on-board, but if the on-board and the dedicated card won't run together, it should automatically disable the on-board.
Describe the situation at the moment, I think we have lost track.
Your available memory will probably drop to less than 3 gig, if the 6850 has 1 gig of memory, and you have 32bit operating system
