Hello,
Are you sure you got the latest drivers? That would be the first thing I'd check.

Oh yes im sure.....

just got off the phone with EVGA... 2hrs. and 4 phone calls

they said some times the HDMI onboard audio drivers have a conflict

so went through all that and it was determined that the GT430 card might be bad

so an RMA is in place to send the card the card back....

//EDIT

So the card was bad,......

did get a new replacment one......,what a dissapointment....Mad...Thats what i get for going cheap......

maybe a 5% gain over my old 8600gt........

even EVGA said it's not much of a performance gain over the old one, but it was a tecknolagy(spelling?) upgrade, because it supports DX11, blueray etc...

Going to return it for a way better one..........

Hello,

Indeed that's sad. I'll keep this topic open for you; let us know if you got a new card and if you're satisfied with it.

thanx..... talked to the place where i bought it from and they said i can only return it if there was something wrong with it, or if it was not opened.....

thats BS....... the 1st card i couldnt even use long enuff to see if it was good, and i had to open the replacment one and plug it in to see if it took care of my problem,

and it did.. i very well could'nt leave it in the box to see if it would work, now could i...?

i Will be on the phone Monday morning to argue with them..........

let you what happen's and what card i end up with.....

EVGA said i should get aGTS450 and that would be an upgrade....

take care........
