  1. Did you plug in the 6-pin PCIe power connector to the card?
  2. Some mb when new default to the onboard video ports. Also check that the eight or four pin CPU power plug next to the CPU or on the edge of the mb is connected.
  3. If you have no OS installed it is not a drivers issue.

    Are you sure you've plugged in the 6-pin power connector from your PSU?

    Yea the 6-pin pci-e connector is directly connected to the psu

    There's no internal MB video outputs

    Ok I just used to most new mb now with video ports on them. Ok no post issues...check the mbto see if the bios file on the mb is at a rev that will post your CPU. Look on the mb CPU qal guild for your mb. Some mb need bios up dates with some ram and more then one stick. Try pulling one ram stick out and make sure the other one is seated. The last is the mob may be shorted out to the mob tray. Check that you used the standoffs to keep it from shorting out. Check that the io shield not shorting out the mb. Check that the mb CMOS jumper on the right pins. Check that the reset button not stuck in and the reset and power buttons are on the right mb header.
  7. all of this has been done, problem still persists
  8. Take thE mb out and bread board it if it does not post try another power supply. If no post could be a bad mb or CPU. If your mb has post it code is it hanging up on post??? Will your system post with another card??
  9. system is posting a CMOS error, allow me time to double check the CMOS jumper again
  10. never mind, that was a mistake, system either isnt post or doesnt have a speaker to post with, im trying to use headphones connected to the motherboard now.
  11. Make sure the 24-pin ATX main power connector, 8-pin ATX 12V power connector, ram, and GPU are properly seated in their respective slots. Also, try running with a single stick of ram to test if the ram is DOA.

    Connecting a speaker to the motherboard will go a long way in helping troubleshoot.
  12. ok, the speaker is posting a successful boot, but there still isnt any image on my screen, i know that my cpu is compatible with my motherboard and vice versa
  13. do you think the problem lies with the dvi-VGA adapter im using?
  14. The card has a single and a dual-link dvi port. Which one have you connected the adapter to?
  15. It's connected to the dvi-I connector (the only one it fits in).
  16. i've resolved the issue, thanks guys!
