Gateway FX6860 Video Card Replacement
There was a previous post that went unanswered about:
"Looking for standard BIOS for Gateway FX6860 Sandy Bridge. (Only Ivy is available for download)"
I believe I have the same problem.
I have tried 2 different video cards to replace the stock HD7770. Both Nvidia and XFX(Radeon) tech support say their cards will work but once installed PC won't boot.
PC is FX6860-ur10p. There are no BIOS options for video/peripheral slots. I figured a BIOS update would work but the "latest" update is the one I already have which came with the PCwhen new.
I reset the CMOS, flashed the BIOS with the "latest" BIOS anyway. Still will not boot with current purchase (XFX - Radeon RX-560). Will boot fine with an old ATI XT1600.
It seems my only option is to purchase a used HD7770 that originally came with the PC. I wouldn't mind so much if new ones were available but they are not.
Thanks for any help.
