Hi
I am doing a oomputer build and have got all to work on on board graphics but cannot get my graphics card to work.
As soon as I connect the graphics card to the power, there is no display irrespective if I connect the display to the card or the standard motherboard display?

I took the card back to the supplier and he plugged it into another pc and away it went.
help.I just felt silly.

These are the components
CoolerMaster C-RC431PKWR500 Elite RC431PLUS WITH 500W,USB3,X-DOCKET

Asus P8B75-M-LX B75 / 2 x DDR3 / 1 x PCI-E3.0 x 16

A-RAM ARTW4GB1333D3V 4GB KIT (2 x 2GB) DDR3 PC-10600 (1333MHz)

Intel i5 3330 Core i5 Processor, 3.0 GHz, LGA1155, Quad Core, 4 Threads, 6MB Cache

I cant get the bluray player to work either. But I am more keen on the graphics card

Can anyone help?

Thanks

it might be your graphic card is faulty. So do you get a new graphic card from the supplier?

No. I took it back and he plugged it into his system and boom the screen displayed the card.
On mine there is no display at all. Black screen

There a few woops that can happen. Make sure the four pin or eight pin pci power plug is on tight. Make sure if the card has two six pin power plugs there both connected. On new mb you have to make sure the newest bios code been installed to fix bug fixes. In the bios new asus mb are set to boot from ipgpu only. Go in and set it to peg. Under that turn on multi monitor support it keep both chipset on for now. For your DVD issue make sure both cables are connected. Power and data. The drive if it working should blink on power up when the system seeks out all drives. It should show up in the bios. On some asus mb there intel chipset for Sata and third party Sata chipset for data drives only. Make sure your DVD drive on the right port and the Sata chipsets set to achi mode.

I am using the same cable for the onboard vga. If you mean the connector between the vga cable and the adaptor for the graphics card no I have not

The pcie power is a 6 pin plug and I rechecked that a number of times. Have not tried the other settings on bios as I would not have recognised them. The blu ray cable is connected (both) Will check the rest Thanks

Did you plug in the four..eight pin cable on the mb. There a plug near the CPU or the edge of the mb that needs to be connected.

In your bios, check your video settings - they should be set to PCIe, not onboard or anything else.

There is a 10 pin minus 1 that is connected at the edge of the mobo near the spdif out.

do a clear CMOS/ Reset Bios and everything should work fine, and a 650 requires only 1 (one) 6pin PCIe connector

I know I sound an ass but does that mean removing the b attery and replacing it. Never done it before

Nope just drain the wall power from the mb first..then move the jumper
Before you do that look on the mb bios page check to see if it the newest
File.

or you can go to your bios settings, go to advanced tab>System Agent Configuration>Graphics Configuration>Primary Display.. change it to auto or PCIe, keep in mind you will have to connect the monitor through the onboard VGA to change these settings

Hi
I am amazed at how quick you have fixed this problem. I have been brooding on this a week and after spending $800 for the parts I got no support at all. That is the last I am going back to that supplier.
I reset the bios after removing the battery and changed the setting to Pcie and bingo all is well.
Thanks to all of you guys a million. I still have the problem with the blu ray but I realised now that you must purchase software before I can watch blurays.
Great! for nothing!! Tell me why do you do it?
I really do not know if I would have done that, but I may change now.
I am really appreciative.

Hi Thanks for all the help I have now started with my gpu display. Wonderful. About the bluray it now recognises the disc which it did not previously.Any hints on this or software that you would recommend that I should buy. Im not a big user but i do need to watch bluray if I have it.

The only retail blue ray player for the pc that I know of is power DVD. They do have a trial software you can download and try.
